ponding in tho House In part the report suys The precise point of difference between the majority and the minority is this The majority approves tho provision which de prives a cltixctv of the of suffrage dis qualifies him from holding OfTico and pre vents him from serving on juries for criminal conduct Irnputod to him when he not been convicted of such criminal con duct while tho minority Insists that a citl bcliiK othorsvlso qualified should not bo rights and privilegeson account of an allowed crime unless he has been convicted of such crime by some court of com potent jurisdiction and where tho penalty for such crlruo or part thereof is disqualification Tho minority while as much as any of tho majority can reprehend tho offenses of bigamy and po lygamy and aiding and abetting of such offenses most respectfully submits to tho House that tho man who Is accused of big amy or aiding or belonging to an association that encourages offences is as much entitled to trial for the offense as tlio man charged with any other Wo insist therefore that when Idaho is ad mitted it shall not bo with a provision in the constitution which deprives citizens of tho right of suffrage of tho

Republic af Mexico for cession of sufficient territory adjoin ing Arizona on southern boundary to secure a deep wator nort upon Tho Gulf of California which would afford an outlet for tho products of tho territory laid before tho Senate interesting docu ments Senator Sherman as chairman of the committee referred tho memorial to Secretary Blame and the secretary iu re ply said in part i bog to say that I can discern no hope ful prospect of any negotiations being success fully conducted with Mexico at the present time evon towards this limited object in of tho nttitudu recently manifested by tho Mexican people with regard to tlio alienation of any part of their state territory by the prominence givftii in certain circles on tlic Paciflo Coast to a move ment for the acquisition of all or part of Lower California by purchase For the information of your committee I trans mit herewith a copy of a memorandum prepared the Mexican Minister of a conversation which ho had with me on this subject ou the 6th dny of June last together with Senor Marisculs memo randum May 20th 1SSO of Ayhich Romero gave me a copy J hold unhesitatingly that tho Gov ernment of the United Suites is precluded by ob liprations of traditional good faith from approach ing the Government of Mexico with a to ac quiring any part of Mexican territory and I equally believe that no of Mexico could face theopposition of the National sentiment that would certainly attend any indication of a disposition to iuiriugc oil tho provision of tho Mexican Constitution wbich withholds from tho government the power to dispose Mexican soil Moreover oven did tlie subject permit favorable negotiations tho petition fails to set forth tho proposition iu suffi cient detail the northeru ana eastern shore of the Guf of Californiadoes not appear to offer a deepwater port until Liberated is reached soma 200 miles from the Delta of Uie Colorado and the country between the coast and the prcsensouth ern limit of Arizona is hrokcn and appears ill adupted to bo a highway of intercourse Th Gnaymais tfcSonora railroad running thence Nogales constitutes tho present channel of the outlet from Arizona to tho Gulf of California Tho memorandum prepared by Minister Romero for Senor Mariscal ufter his con versation with Secretary Blaine says The Secretary of Stale then informed the Min ister thut his personal views and those of tho United States Government with respect to tho of Mexican territory were expressed in his note to Mr Morgan United States Minis ter to Mexico dittcd lnno l 1881 and which was not tbinlc remotely of acquiring any sec Lion of Mexican territory and that il would not support any project having such a subject in view as the United States liad all tho territory they required for their progress and welfaio and desired no more The Secretary ofState further stated that the United States Government could not prevent the newspapers or the citizens of tho country from saying what they pleased on that or any otlier subject but tbut as regarded the acquisition of Mexican territory by tho UiHted States ho felt certain that made were of portauco white vor since public opinion did not favor further acquisition and that even it any other administration should favor them ho thought it would meet with no in tho country for such design The memorandum then speaks of the unanimous opposition of the Mexican peo ple to any plan looking to the annexation of national territory and the possibility such alienation under the Constitution and continues It is well known that the administration of General Diax has done all in its power to strengthen the friendly relations by the attrac tion of the capital industry commerce of our neighbors and by erasing the last vestige of pre judices which might divide them It will con tJnue to do so if convinced that such is the only national policy hut if in the midst of these efforts to secure a good and cordial understanding foe common benefit obstacles should arise to inter pose not raised by the government of the United States but by State officials of the same nation t in such case however disagreeable ir might be to us and to a certain extent contrary to our inter nal policy we should be sxfford satisfaction to the Mexican people so sensitive in this matter having shed its blood and made immense sacmfice to achieve independence and preserve the integrity of their territory Wo should find ourselves under tho sterr necessity of adopting restrictive i res in regard to the acquisition by certain foreigners of real estate concessions as far as engagements already entered into migUl allow These steps might however be inter preted as showing bad will on our part towarc the American people when we are on the con trary animated by exactly the opposite senti Tiients In order therefore to avoid such an m terpretation under the instructions of the I have made the foregoing explanation But though we view with contempt the boasts of idle and evil disposed people who dream of wars of conquest or of revolutionary movements plotted on our border a viow of tion of part of our country it is iMfc so wltfe other manifest actions a respectable source though they have their origin in opinions equally destitute of foundation I refer to the proposi tion originated in the Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles and presented to the House of Representatives at Washington authorizing the executive to negotiate with Mexico for the pur chase of Lower California I refer also to an opinion in which without any reservation tbe Governor the State of California expressed about tbe great convenience of such acquisition and above all tho purchase of Sonora and Sinaloa about which no mention had before been made No matter how mvch the Government might be inclined u overlook thie double expres sion of erroneous judgment as to our patriotic sentiments and our entire conformity with the opinion of our country in this regard it cannot do so considering the expression of views by the present olficials of the State of Calif is conterminous without our Territory inter ested in some of those annexations Wecannofc look with indifference upon anything coming from respectable authorities and if any ona should tell us that no serious and voll concerted plan on tbe subject is entertained by them but tuat it is rather the influence ofcom binations of interior politics which constrained them to ideas We should be forced even though sharing iu this to deeply raent that there were persons in such misguided judgement bad influence enough to induce Governor Water man to make public utterances without thinking t of the effect theyvmight afterwards pro rluce ia the relations with nation Following is a
