THE "EDMUNDS ACT." 



AN ACT to amend section fifty-three hundred and fifty-two of the Revised Statutes 
of the United States, in reference to bigamy, and for other purposes. 

J^e it enacted by the /Senate and House of Kepresentatives of the 
ZTnited States of America in C ongress assembled^ That section fifty- 
three hundred and fifty-two of the Revised Statutes of the United 
States be, and the same is' hereby, amended so as to read as follows, 
namely: 

"Every person who has a husband or wife living who, in a Ter- 
ritory or other place over which the United States have exclusive 
jurisdiction, hereafter marries another, whether married or single, 
and any man who hereafter simultaneously, or on the same day, mar- 
ries more than one woman, in a Territory or other place over which 
the Uniteei States have exclusive jurisdiction, is guilty of polygamy, 
and shall be punished by a fine of not more than five hundred dol- 
lars and by imprisonment for a term of not more than five years; 
but this section shall not extend to any person by reason of any 
former marriage whose husband or wife by such marriage shall have 
been absent for five successive years, and is not known to sucli 
person to be living, and is believed by such person to be dead, nor 
to any person by reason of any former marriage which, shall have 
been dissolved by a valid decree of a competent court, nor to any 
person by reason of any former marriage which shall have been pro- 
nounced void by a valid decree of a competent court, on the ground 
of nullity of the marriage contract." 

Sec. 2. That the foregoing provisions shall not aifect the prosc- 
eution or punishment of any offense already committed against tlu- 
section amended by the first section of this act. 

Sec. 3. That if any male person, in a Territor}' or other place 
over wlrich the United States have exclusive jurisdiction, hei-eafter 
coha-bits with more than one woman, he shall be deemed guilty of a 
misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine 
of not more than three hundred dollars, or by imprisonment for not 
more than six months, or by both said punishments, in the disr ra- 
tion of the court. 

Sec. 4. That counts for any or all of the offenses named in sec- 
tions one and three of this act may be joined in the same infonnu- 
tion or indictment. 

Sec. 5. That in any prosecution for bigamy, polygamy, or un- 
lawful cohabitation, under any statute of the United States, it shall 
be sufficient cause of challenge to any person drawn or summoned as 
a juryman or talesman, first, that he is or has been living in the prac- 
tice of bigamy, polygamy, or unlawful cohabitation with more than 
one woman, or that he is or has been guilty of an offense purwshable 
• by either of the foregoing sections, or by section fiftv-three hundred 



and fifty-two of the Revised statutes of the United States, or the 
act of July tirst, eighteen hundred and sixty-two, entitled "An act 
to punish and prevent the practice of polygamy in the Territories of 
the United States and other places, and disapproving and annulling 
certain acts of the legislative assembly of the Territory of Utah," 
or, second, that he believes it right for a man to have more than one 
living and undivorced wife at the same time, or to live in the prac- 
tice of cohabiting with more than one woman; and any person ap- 
pearing or offered as a juror or talesman, and challenged on either 
of the fores^oing grounds, may be questioned on his oath as to the 
existence of any such cause of challenge, and other evidence may 
be introduced bearing upon the question raised by such challenge; 
and this question shall be t/ied by the court But as to the first 
ground of challenge before mentioned, the person challenged shall 
not be bound to answer if he shall say upon his oath that he declines 
on the ground that his answer may tend to criminate himself; and if 
he shall answer as to said first ground, his answer shall not be given 
in evidence in any criminal prosecution against him for any offense 
named in sections one or three of this act; but if he declines to an- 
swer on any ground, he shall be rejected as incompetent. 

Sec. 6. That the F^resident is hereby authorized to grant am- 
nesty to such classes of offenders guilty of bigamy, polygamy, or un- 
lawful cohabitation, before the passage of this act, on such condi- 
tions and under such limitations as he shall think proper; but no 
such amnesty shall have effect unless the conditions thereof shall be 
complied with. 

Sec. 7. That the issue of bigamous or polygamous marriages, 
known as Mormon marriages, in cases in which such marriages have 
been solemnized according to the ceremonies of the Mormon sect, 
in any Territory of the United States, and such issue shall have 
been born before the first day of January, anno Domini eighteen 
hundred and eighty- three, are hereby legitimated. 

Sec 8. That no polygamist, bigamist, or any person cohabiting 
with more than one woman, and no woman cohabiting with any of the 
persons described as aforesaid in this section, in any Territory or 
other place over wlych the United States have exclusive jurisdic- 
tion, shall be entitled to vote at any election held in any such Ter- 
ritorv or othar place, or be eligible for election or appointment to 
or be entitled to hold any office or place of public trust, honor, or 
emolument in, under, or for any such Territory or place, or under 
the United States. 

Sec. 9. That all the registration and election offices of every de 
scription in the Territory of Utah are hereby declared vacant, and 
each and every duty relatino- to the registration of voters, the con- 
duct (jf elections, the receiving or rejection of votes, and the can- 
vassing and returning of the same, and the issuing of certificates or 
other evidenc^of election in said Territory, shall, until other provi-

sions be made by the legislative assembly of said Territory as is 
hereinafter by this section provided, be performed under the exist- 
ing laws of the United States and said Territory by proper persons, 
who shall be appointed to execute such offices and perform such du- 
ties by a board of live persons, to be appointed by the President, by 
and with the advice and consent of the Senate, not more than three 
of whom shall be memliers of one political party; and a majority of 
whom shall be a quorum. The members of said board so appointed 
by the President shall each receive a salary' at the rate of three 
thousand dollars per annum, and shall continue in office until the 
legislative assembly of said Territory shall make provision for filling 
said offices as herein authorized. The secretary of the Territory 
shall be the secretary of said board, and keep a journal of its pro- 
ceedings, and attest the action of said board under this section. 
The canvass and return of all the votes at elections in said Territo- 
ry for members of the legislative assembly thereof shall also be re- 
turned to said board, which shall canvass all such returns and issue 
certificates of election for those persons who, being eligible for such 
election, shall apDcar to have been lawfully elected, which certifi- 
cates shall be the only evidence of the right of such p^sons to sit 
in such assembly; Provided^ That said board of five persons shall 
not exclude any person otherwise eligible to vote from the polls on 
account of any opinion such person may entertain on the subject of 
bigamy or polygamy, nor shall they refuse to count any such vote 
on account of the opinion of the person casting it on the subject of 
bigamy or polygamy; but each house of such assembly, after its or- 
ganization, shall have power to decide upon the elections and quali- 
fications of its members. And at, or after the first meeting of said 
legislative assembly whose members shall have }:)een elected and re- 
turned according to the provisions of this act, said legislative as- 
sembly may make such laws, conformable to the organic act of said 
Territory and not inconsistent with other laws of the United States, 
as it shall deem proper concerning the filling of the offices in said 
Territory declared vacant by this a'ct. 
Approved, March 22, 1882. 



REPORT 



OF 



THE UTAH COMMISSION. 



OffK E OF THE UtAH CoMMISSIOX, 

Salt Luke City, l(tah, August 31, 1882. 

Dear Sir : The Coniniissioii appointed by the President, under 
Ihe ninth section of "An act to amend section 5352 of the Revised 
Statutes of the United States, in reference to higaniy, and for other 
purposes,*" approved March 22, 1882, respectfully report : That all 
the members of the Commission met, by request of the chairman, at 
the city of Chicag-o, on the iTth of July, 1882, and remained in session 
several days, James R. Pettigrew, of Arkansas, a member of the 
Connoiss^on, was .appointed temporary Secretaiy-. After consultation 
and an extmination and consideration of the laws of the United 
States and of the Territory of Utah pertaining to our duties, it was 
determined that nothing could be done in regard to the registration 
of voters and the conduct of any election in Utah until the necessary 
appropriation bills then pending in Congress should ])e passed. Ac- 
coi-dingly, the Commission adjourned to meet at Omaha, Neb., on the 
15th day of August, where the Commissioners met, and on the follow- 
ing day connnenced their journey to this city, arriving liere on the 
evening of the 1 8th instant. 

On the day following a session was liehl for the transaction of 
business, Arthur T^. Thomas, Secretary of the Territory, and ex-otfici(j 
Secretary of the Commission, l)eing present, and (me or more sessions 
have been held each day since. A strong disposition with some of 
the non-Mormon citizens against preparing for the election of a Dele- 
gate in C'ongress manifested itself before the 'work of preparation 
therefor was commenced. But upon investigation as to the condition 
of aifairs, and an examination as to the state of the law and the duty 
of the Connnission thereunder, the following preamble and resolution 
was adopted : 

AYi^p'"pas it is i)rovided })y the Revised Statiites of the United 
States (section 1802) that every Territory shall have the right to send 
a Delegate to the House of Representatives of the United States, and 
as it is further provided '(section 25) that such election shall be held 
in all the Territories of the United States on the Tuesday after the 
first Monday in November, 1882 : Therefore, 

Jiesolved, That in order to prepare for such election in the Ter- 
ritory of Utah on the day so established the Connnission will proceed 
forthwith to a])point registration officers to revise the registration 



REl'OJM' OK UTAH ( ( ).M M ISSiOX. 7 

lists, now on tile in the otlice of the clerks of e-dyh of the .several coun- 
ties, in the mainier required by-law. 

In pursuance of this resolution the Commission proceeded with 
g-reat care and deliberation to prepare "-rules and regulations'" for the 
guidance of the registration and electic^n officers to be appointed. 
This was a difficult and delicate task, because of the necessity of 
traming the rules aiul regulations governing the registration of voters 
and the conduct of the election to conform to the principles and re- 
( jidrenients of the act of Congress as well as the laws of the Territory. 
We inclose a printed co})y of the same, together witli the forms of 
affidavits, etc., provided ]:)y the Commission. 

The matter of the appointment of registrati(^n officers for the 
several counties in the Territories was then taken up, and one for 
each county has been duly appointed and c;om missioned. In addi- 
tion to these a deputy or assistant in each voting precinct in the Ter- 
ritory will be immediately apj)ointed. Our selections have and must 
necessarily be influenced in a considei'able degree by suggestions and 
reconnneiidations of leading citi/ens here The emlDarrassments in 
this direction have been great, but the Connnission have endeavored 
to secure the very best available men, rejecting, of course, all persons 
who are ineligible under the law. 

From present indications it appeal's that that class of persons 
who are deprived of the right of sufi[i-age by the act of Congress will 
not attempt to register or vote. These will number, male and female, 
})robably 10,000 voters. Man^r of the non-Mormons have hitherto re- 
frained from voting, l)ut it is believed that at the November electic^n 
they will cast a much larger vote than at any time heretofore. How- 
ever, the business of the Cominission, as understood by the members 
thereof, relates not to the rjuestions of parties nor cajididates, but to 
securing so far as possible a fair registration and ^,\^^ im])artially con- 
ducted election under the law. 

As before suggested, the Commission have encountered many 
embarrassments and complications. The o])])osition made at the out- 
set by some non-Mormons of respectability and influence against 
holding the regular election for Delegate in Congress, as required by 
law, in November next, was an unpleasant feature of, the situation. 
But th^re does not appear to l)e under the law any discretion what- 
ever for the Commission. The law demanded an election. The people 
of the Territory were clearly entitled to representation in Congress, 
if the same could be secured thrcmgh a due observance of the restric- 
tions imposed in relation to bigamy and polygamy. We did not see 
how we could exc-use the omission, if being present and prejiared to 
proceed with the work assigned us we shtmld not even attempt to 
perform this manifest duty, and so it was decided to proceed. It was 
not deemed advisable, even if the ])ower was in the Commission, con- 
cerning which there is some doubt, to commence de novo a registra- 
tion of the voters of the Territory ; but after very careful considera- 



lion it was decided to order a revision of the existing registration 
lists in September, as re^iiiii'ed by tlie Territorial law, a])plying to the 
same the governing jjrinciples of the Edmunds act. 

We think the reguhirity of this proceedijig cainiot be questioned. 
Its effectiveness will be equal to an entirely new registration, and we 
believe the results c>f the election Avill so demonstrate. In the prepa- 
ration of the rules and I'egulations to govern the registration and the 
conduct of the election, as before stated, the labor of assimilating the 
acts of Congress and the local election law, was tedious and perplex- 
ing, involving much greater responsibility than was agreeable to the 
Commission to assume; but to accomplish the results lequired by the 
provisions of section 8 of the Edmunds act it became necessary to 
use all the powers conferred. 

A later embarrassment came in the forjn of a demand on the 
part of certain non-Mormon citizens of high character that the Com- 
mission shoCild assume jurisdiction and decide the local statute 
authorizing women to vote to be illegal and void. We concluded 
that it was not competent for the Commission to repeal or modify that 
statute in the manner suggested; that the principle of female suffrage 
is, in no respect, in (M)nllict with the ]>ur]ioses of the Edmunds law, 
and, therefore, that the Commission had nothing whatever to do with 
the subject; moreover, we found on investigation that this statute had 
been in force for twelve years without being adjudicated in the 
Courts of the .Territory or disturbed by Congress. In conclusion, 
])ermit us to say that we believe the results to be reached through 
the careful registration ali-eady insured, and the impai-tial election 
which can hardly fail to ft)llow, will l)e satisfactory to the government 
and the country. 

In closing this report, it is due to the Territorial Secretary, who 
is ex-officio Secretary of the Commissi(Mi, Mr. Arthur L. Thomas, to 
say that the Commission has received from him valuable assistance 
in its work, particularly in the matter of the selection of registration 
and other officers. 

Very respectfully, your obedient servants,

report of utah commission. 9 

Office of thp: Utah Co:mmissiox, 
Suit Lake City, Utah, November 17, 1882. 

Sir : The election for Delegate to Congress having been held 
in Utah Territory on the 7th inst., under the sujiervision of this Com- 
mission, we deem it proper to I'eport to your department the progress 
made up to this time in the discharge of our trust. 

Since our last report, dated August 31, we appointed a registra- 
tion officer for each voting precinct of the several counties, and estab- 
lished some additional polling places, with a view of affording proper 
facilities for all the legal voters. In order to conform the local law, 
so far as practicable, to the requirements of the act of Congress, we 
\Aere obliged to pi-onudgate rules and regulations for the judges of 
election. 

We next appointed jiulges of election, three'for each polling 
place, about seven hundred and fifty in number. The local law^ re- 
quires that the judges shall be selected from both politii.'al parties, if 
})racticable. Accorditigly w^e selected them, in general, from ]>oth 
j)arties; but in some instances we were obliged to appoint all of th^m 
from the "Liberal party" or from the "People's party," because there 
were no eligible and qualified persons, so far as we were informed, in 
such precincts belonging to the other party. Commissions were sent 
to each of the judges (copies of which, together with tlie rides tJnd 
regulations, are herewith inclosed). 

In order to procure such information as we deemed useful to the 
government, we addressed circulars to the registrars, and from their 
responses we learn that the total number of registered voters is 
33,266, of whom 18,772 are males, and 14,494 are females. From 
their reports it appears that about 12,000 men and womtMi ;ue ex- 
cluded from registration by reason of polygamy. 

Several of the counties of this Territory are quite large in area, 
some of them over a hundred miles long, sparsely inhabited, and diffi- 
cult of access by mail or otherwise. This has occasioned considerable 
delay and extra exertion in preparing for tlie election and receiving 
the returns. 

The anomalous condition of this country and its people, together 
with the inherent difficulty of adjusting the local laws to the act of 
Congress, are such that they imposed on us great care and delibera- 
tion, lest, on the one hand, we should go beyond the limits of the 
law, or, on the other hand, fall short of a vigcvror.s ;iiid efFective dis- 
charge of our duties. 

In the absence of instructions or judicial decisions to aid us in 
the interpretation of the law prescribing our duties, we were obliged 
to construe it for ourselves, and in doing so we endeavored to con- 
form, to the well-known canons for the construction of statutes, having 
a due regard for the evident intention of Congreiss in this act, con- 
strued with other acts of Congress, in pari materia.

10 REPORT OF UTAH COMMTSSIOX. 

"•Polygamists and bigamists," and persons "cohabiting with more 
than one woman,"" are, by section 8, to be excluded from voting and" 
holding office. 

Immediately upon addressing ourselves to the discharge of our 
duties, we were obliged to consider the scope and extent of this ex- 
clusion. 

l^id Congress intend that those only should be excluded, who, 
at the very time of the registration or election, were then living in 
polygamy, or in '"unlawful cohabitation with more than one woman?" 
If so, such a construction would render this section a perfect nullity 
The means of evasion are patent to the dullest comprehension. We 
therefore concluded that neither the letter nor spirit of the statute re- 
quired such a narrow construction, and, in our published "Rules and 
Regulations," we gave the exclusion a wdder scope and application. 

We found that the local law^ prescribed a certain form of oath to 
be taken by persons appljnng to be registered as voters. We adopt- 
ed this oath verbatim^ adding a clause in regard to "polygamy and 
bigamy," and "unlawful cohabitation," which we considered it proper 
to do, in order to make the local law conform, so far as practicable, 
to the principles and requirements of the act of Congress. 

In short, we were charged by the act of Congress with the duty 
of excluding from the polls and from eligibility to office, a certain 
class of persons. How this was to be done was not defined by the 
act. 

Were we to exclude only those who had been convicted of the 
crime of polygamy in the Courts? This construction would have been 
derided by everybody in this Territory. 

We concluded that it was the intention of Congress to leave it 
largely to the discretion of the Commission, to determine the means 
of discriminating between the legal and illegal voters. This we en- 
deavored to do in part by the prescribed oath, which sets forth the 
various qualifications of a legal voter, e. //., those in regard to age, 
residence, citizenship or naturalization, and freedom from the dis- 
qualifications imposed by act of Congress. 

During the week before the November election the Commission 
made an ordei- appointing five gentlemen of character and standing 
as a ]3oard of Canvassers of the returns of the election for a Delegate 
to the Forty-eighth Congress (a copy of which order is enclosed 
herein). On the 16th day of November, 1882, the said Board of 
Canvassers met at the rooms of the Commission and canvassed the 
election returns, from Avhich it appeared that John T. Caine had re- 
ceived 23,039 votes, and Philip T. Van Zile had received 4,88-i 
votes. John T. Caine having received a majority of all the legal 
votes, he was declared duly elected, and a certificate given accord- 
ingly. 

Having reason to believe that it is expected by the Executive 
that this Commission will make suggestions as to any additional le- 



REPORT OF UTAH COMMISSION. 11 

oislation that may be needed to carry out^the principles of the law 
under which the Commission was organized, we would state that, 
in our judgment, a marriage law enacted by Congress would be an 
efficient auxiliary in the suppression of polygamy. It is asserted, 
and generally believed by non-Mormons in this T( rritory, that plu- 
ral marriage is still practiced here in secret. We would recommend 
that Congress enact a law declaring all ■ future marriages iii this 
Territory null and void, unless they are contracted and evidenced 
in the manner provided by the act. For example: That all mar- 
riages shall be solemnized in certain designated public places; and 
witnessed by such persons, and registered in such public offices, as 
to make the proof of marriage morally certain ; providing also, that 
the person officiating in the marriage ceremony, together with the 
parties and witnesses, shall make their affidavits against polygamy, 
and set forth the time and place and other particulars relating to 
the marriage. Or, allow marriages to be solemnized in private; but 
with the like guarantees of registration, affidavits," witnesses, etc., 
and in either case providing penalties for violation of the act by any 
of the persons concerned therein. In making this suggestion, we 
omit the details, which can readily be supplied by reference to the 
marriage acts of most of the States. 

In our former report we adverted to the law of this Territory 
conferring on women the right of suffrage. This law was enacted 
by the Territorial Legislature some twelve years ago. Of course it 
is competent for Congress to repeal or annul this law. Without ex- 
pressing any opinion on the question of women suffrage in general, 
we are satisfied that, owing to the peculiar state of affairs in Utah, 
this law is an obstruction to the speedy solution of the "vexed ques- 
tion." 

In the prosecution of polygamy cases here it is difficult to 
prove the first or legal marriage. We would suggest, as a remedy, 
that the first or legal wnfe be declared by act of Congress a compe- 
tent witness in such prosecutions. 

Under the act of Congress, by virtue of whose provisions this 
Commission was appointed, the people of Utah appear to be put 
upon probation until a legislative assembly, elected under the pro- 
visions of the act, shall meet and pass the requisite laws concerning 
registration and eleciion. 

The election for members of the legislative assembly will be 
held next August, and that body will hold its next session in Janu- 
ary, 1884. It is to be hoped that it will comprise a sufficient num- 
ber of members who will be disposed to bring this Territory into 
harmony with the sentiments of the people of other parts -of the 
country. 

We have been engaged in the discharge of our trust, only a few 
months, not long enough to fully test the operation of the law as to 
its ultimate results. But, so far, it has been a decided success in ex' 



l2 REPORT OF UTAH COMMISSION. 

eluding polygamists from the exercise of suffrage; and we are of 
the opinion that the steady and continued enforcement of the law 
will place polygamy in a condition of gradual extinction, and that 
the domination that is complained of by non-Mormons in Utah and 
elsewhere, will, at no distant day, be much ameliorated. 

In accepting the trust committed to us, it was not expected by 
the Commission, and, we suppose, not anticipated by Congress nor 
the Executive Department of the Government, that the desired re- 
sults would be accomplished at once nor in the brief space of a few 
months; but there is reason to believe that the operation of this law 
and other influences are setting strongly in the direction of reform, 
and that the hitherto dominant faction will be supplanted by "Young 
Utah" in the conduct of public affairs. 

There is no doubt that the enactment of the law of Congress 
under which this Commission was appointed has agitated the public 
mind in this Territory to a remarkable degree. Hitherto there has 
been very little public discussion of political questions, and in gen- 
eral the people have not attended political meetings in large num- 
bers. But we are gratified to find that in the "campaign" preced- 
ing the November election for Delegate to Congress, the people of 
all classes have manifested a lively interest in public affairs, and 
have attended the political meetings in large numbers. Many of 
these meetings have been held by both parties in various parts of 
the Territory, and able addresses have been delivered by speakers 
on both sides. It is an encouraging sign that many of the "Liberal" 
meetings have been largely attended by Mormons, and in many in- 
stances they have composed the chief part of the audiences. It is 
proper to add that so far as we have learned these meetings have 
been characterized by exceptional good order, good humor, and de- 
corum. On Saturday night before the election both parties held 
large mass meetings in Salt Lake City, and vied with each other in 
the display of national flags and patriotic music. 

Our attention has been called to the propriety of our recom- 
mending Congressional legislation of a radical character. But we 
are not inclined to advise such measures, unless upon further ob- 
servation and experience the wisdom and necessity of such legisla- 
tion shall be demonstrated. 

The area of the Territory is 84,000 square miles. The popula- 
tion is about 150,000, about 40,<i00 being non-Mormons, many of 
whom are socalled apostates from the Mormon church. 

The ])eople are generally engaged in agricultural pursuits. 
Prior to the completion of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific 
railroads there were very few non-Mormon residents in the Terri- 
tory. Since 1869 the business of mining has become an important 
interest, and from that time the total output is over $60,000,000 in 
silver, lead, and gold. 

There are also valuable deposits of coal, iron, copper, and other 



REPORT OF UTAH COMMISSION. 13 

minerals. The mines give employment to a great many persons, 
and hive been the means of attracting a large non- Mormon popula- 
tion to the Territory. Many of the non-Mormons (or "Gentiles) are 
doing a prosperous business in banking, mining and mercantile 
pursuits. 

The legislation of Congress, as we understand it, is not enacted 
against the religion of any portion of the people of this Territory. 
The law under which we are acting is directed against the crime of 
polygamy, for the extirpation of which this Commission will freely 
use all the powers delegated to us, and will from time to time sug- 
gest to the Government such supplemental legislation as may aid 
in suppressing this reproach to the civilization of this age and 
country. 

We trust that this object will be accomplished without resort- 
ing to measures destructive to local self government, punishing the 
whole people, the innocent as well as the guilty, with political os- 
tracism. At all events we are unwilling to advise such a course 
until the act of (yongress under which we are acting shall be more 
fully tested. Besides, a proper respect for the legislative branch 
of the government would restrain us from impeaching the wisdom 
of their enactment at the very threshold of the work committed to 
us, and long before the time expressed in the act of Congress. 

If, however, the next session ot the legislative assembly, elect- 
ed under the act of Congress, shall fail to respond to the will of the 
nation. Congress should have no hesitation in using extraordinary 
measures to comple the people of this Territory to obey the laws of 
the land. 

For the Commission : 

Very respectfully, 

'aLEX. RAMSEY, 

C hairman.

OKDER 



OF THE UTAH COMMISSION ADOPTED TUNE 13, 1883. 



William Jennings having appeared before the Commission on 
Monday, June 11th, 1883, and made the following statement : 

"I decided not to register last year, but appeared before the 
Deputy Registrar of the Third Salt Lake City Precinct, on Satur- 
day, June 9th, 1883, and took the oath prescribed by Rule 2 of the 
rules defining the duties of the Registration Officers, and was duly 
re2:istered. Subsequently I received notice from the Deputy Re- 
gistrar that my name had been stricken from the list of voters of 
said precinct by the direction of Thomas C. Bailey, Registration 
Officer of Salt Lake County. I entered into a polygamous relation 
prior to July .1st, 1862, and continued in that relation until about 
the year 1871, at which date my first wife died, and I have since 
lived and cohabited with but one wife. I, therefore, claim that I 
have not entered into any marriage relation in violation of law, and 
that I am entitled to have my name appear on the list of registered 
voters of said precinct, and ask that the action of the Registration 
Officer for said county be reversed, and my name restored to the 
list of voters of said precinct." 

After due consideration by the Commission it is ordered "that 
said William Jennings is within the meaning of Section 8 of the 
Act of Congress of March 22d, 1882, disqualified as a voter, and is 
therefore not entitled to register or vote." 



.THE AUGUST ELECTION, 1883. 



ORDER OF THE COMMISSION. 



Report of the Special Committee, and the order of the Com- 
mission, adopted June 13, 1883. 

Salt Lake City, June J3, 1883. 
Alex. Mamsey^ Chairman of the Commission: 

Sir: — Your ( committee appoinied on May 7th to examine and 
report in relation to the offices to be filled at the August election 
1883, respectfully report : That there are to be elected members 
of the Legislative Assembly in all the Legislative Districts of the 
Territory; and also certain county and precinct officers. 

As to those officers who should have been elected at the August 
election in 1882, we find, that by law, some of them are to be elect- 
ed for a certain number of years; some for a given term "and until 
their successors are qiialifiecV^' and some for a given term and 
"until their successors are elected and qualified^ 

In regard to vacancies, and the time and manner of filing them, 
the local laws are difficult of construction in view of subsequent 
Congressional legislation. But in deference to the decision of the 
Supreme Court of Utah, as to vacancies, in the case of Kimball vs. 
Richards in 1882, sustaining the appointment of the Governor of 
Utah, we are of the opinion that all offices which should have been 
filled at the general election in 1882, are to be filled at the next 
general election in August, 1883, for the unexpired term. 

We are further of the opinion that the offices of Territorial 
Superintendent of District Schools, Territorial Auditor of Public 
Accounts, Territorial Treasurer, and Commissioners to locate uni- 
versity lands, are under the Organic Act of the Territory of Utah, 
to be appointed by the Governor with the assent of the Legislative 
Council, and that the acts of the Legislative Assembly providing 
for filling those offices by an election of the people, are in conflict 
with said Organic Act, and are therefor invalid. 

Respectfully, 

A. B. CARLTON, 
G. L. GODFREY, 
• ConiTnittee. 

The report was adopted, and the following order made : 
"That at the general election to be held on Monday, August 6. 
1883, there are to be elected members of the Legislative Assembly 



RULES. 37 

in the several Legislative Districts of the Territory, and also certain 
county and precinct officers. And that all county and precinct 
offices which should have been filled at the August election, 1883, 
are to be filled at the August election, 1883, for the unexpired 
term." 



ORDER 



OF THE COMMISSION, ADOPTED JUNE 



Ordered, That there shall be appointed three Judges of Elec- 
tion for each municipal corjDoration of the Territory of Utah, in 
which municipal elections are to be held, one of whom shall be de- 
signated presiding Judge; provided, that in m^unicipal corporations 
in which there are more than one election precinct, there shall be 
appointed three additional Judges for each of said precincts. The 
presiding Judge of each municipal election shall procure from the 
office of the Clerk of the County Com-t, at the expense of the city, a 
certified copy of the last preceding Registration List of the precinct 
or precincts in which said municipality is located, and if said lists 
have not been filed with the County Clerk he shall procure a certi- 
fied copy from the Registration Officer of the county, and on the day 
designated by the City Charter he shall proceed to revise said list 
by erasing therefrom the names of all persons who have died, or re- 
moved from the precinct, or who are disqualified under the provi- 
sions of the Act of Congress approved March 22, 1882, entitled "x\n 
Act to amend Section 5352 of the Revised Statutes of the United 
States, in reference tofbigamy, and for other purposes," and adding 
thereto the names of persons who are entitled to be registered and 
to vote; provided, that in said revision a new affidavit will not be 
required of those already registered, except where there is good 
reason to believe that the voter has gone into polygamy since the 
last registration. Said Judges are hereby constituted a Board of 
Canvassers for said election in their respective municipalities, and 
shall make returns thereof to the Secretary of the Territory, who is 
hereby authorized and directed to issue certificates of election to 
the persons who, being eligible, appear by said returns to have been 
elected; provided, that in municipal corporations having more than 
one election precinct the Judges of one of said precincts will be de- 
signated to receive the canvass of all the others, and make returns 
thereof to the Secretary of the Territory, who is hereby authorized 
to issue certificates of election to the persons who, being eligible, 
appear by said returns to be elected as heretofore provided. 

It is further ordered that the order of October 19, 1882, relating 
to municipal elections, be and the same is hereby rescinded.

A LETTER 



Salt Lake City, Utah, August 24th, 1883. 
Hex. H. M. Teller, Secretary of the Interior^ Washington^ D. C: 

Sir — I have the honor to inform you that the Report upon the 
Registration of voters in June last, the election for Members of the 
Legislative Assembly, and other officers, held on the 6th day of the 
present month, in this Territory, and the full proceedings of this 
Commission in connection therewith, will, from necessity, be de- 
layed for a time. However, we think it will be proper to sav now, 
in advance of our regular report, that the law known as the" "Ed- 
munds Act," so far as we have been responsible for its execution, 
has been carefully, but rigidly enforced this year, as it was last. 
No person living in polygamy has been permitted to vote at any 
election, or to be voted for, for any office; and while only three 
convictions in prosecutions against polygamists under the Act of 
1862, have been secured, nearly or quite fifteen thousand persons 
have been disfranchised on account of polygamic practices, through 
the operations of the law as administered by this Commission. 

Ten suits for damages have been instituted against the Com- 
mission, by certain Mormons whose names were rejected at the first 
registration, and who were not permitted to vote at the election in 
November, 1882, because they refused to comply with the Rules 
and Regulations, prescribed under the law by the Commission, for 
the proof of the eligibility of all voters. It is understood that these 
suits have been brought for the purpose, primarily, of testing the 
constitutionality of this law, and secondarily, to determine the legal- 
ity of our acts thereunder. 

The first hearing in these cases will be had early in October, 

It is deemed advisable to withhold our regular report until the 
court here shall have heard and passed upon these cases. 

Moreover, certain phases of the general situation here have pre- 
sented themselves through the recent election, and in other ways, 
in the present year, which will require to be carefully considered 
before the Commission will be prepared to make the full and com- 
prehensive report which the President and Congress will undoubt- 
edly desire, and the Commission will wish to make. Such a report 
will be prepared and forwarded, in ample time for the use of the 
President in communicating with Congress at the commencement 
of its session, in December next. 

Very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

ALEXANDER RAMSEY. 
By order of the Commission.

ANNUAL REPORT. 



Washington, D. C, October 30, 1883. 

SiE : The Board of five Commissioners appointed by the Presi- 
dent under the provisions of the act of March 22, 1882, entitled "An 
act to amend section 5352 of the Revised Statutes of the United 
States in reference to bigamy, and for other purposes," respectfully 
submit the following report: 

Before proceeding with the account of the transactions of the 
Board since our last report to the Interior Department, we deem it 
advisable to make a brief statement of the former legislation of 
Congress in relation to bigamy or polygamy. There is no doubt 
that "plural marriage" was practiced to a considerable extent 
among the Mormons from the time of their first immigration to the 
Great Salt Lake Valley in 1847. It was in 1852 that it was first 
publicly proclaimed as a tenet of the church by alleged "divine 
revelation" by Brlgham Young, president of the church, and gov- 
ernor of Utab Territory under the appointment of President Fill- 
more. 

After the lapse of ten years, namely, on July 1, 1862, an act 
was passed by Congress which provides that "every person having a 
husband or wife living, who marries another, whether married or 
single, in a Territory or other place over which the United States 
have exclusive jurisdiction, is guilty of bigamy, and shall be pun- 
ished by a fine of not more than $500, and by imprisonment for a 
term not more than five years." 

Under this law there have been very few convietions, not more 
than three, as we are advised, for a period of over twenty years, 
which is due largely to the fact that a great majority of the com- 
munity are in sympathy with the accused. In this connection we 
deem it proper to say that no reflection is intended to be cast upon 
the judges or other officers of justice in Utah appointed by the 
Government. Doubtless they have done the best they could with 
such means and legal measures as were furnished by the Govern- 
ment. 



THE TERHITORY OF UTAH. 



The law of March 22, 1882, is much more comprehensive. In ad- 
dition to repeating the same penalty for entering into the polygamic 
relation, it amends the former law by providing a penalty "against 
any man who simultaneously, or on the same day, marries more 
than one woman," such cases having occurred in Utah, and the for- 
mer law not providing for such "simultaneous" nuptials. Also, the 
present law provides a penalty for "unlawful cohabitation," which 
was intended to meet the case of a continuance of the polygamic 
relation, for it was held by the courts, under the former law, that a 
man living in a polygamic relation could not be convicted after 
the three years' statute of limitations had expired from the time of 
entering into the plural marriage. Besides, new sections are intro- 
duced into the present act relating to the qualification of jurors, 
amnesty to offenders, and the legitimation of children born before 
January 1, 1883. 

With the execution of those provisions of the act thus far ad- 
verted to, this Commission have nothing to do; and there is a general 
misapprehension in the public mind as to the extent of our authority, 
which, though important and difficult of execution, is much more 
circumscribed and limited than many suppose. Our whole author- 
ity is set forth in the ninth or last section of the law, which is to be 
construed in connection with the preceding section, and per- 
haps some other sections of the act. 

The eighth section provides that — 

No polygamist, bigamist, or any person cohabiting with more than one woman, 
and no woman cohabiting with any of the persons described as aforesaid in this sec- 
tion, in any Territory or other place over which the United States have exchisive 
jurisdiction, shall be entitled to vote at any election held in any such Territory or 
other piacCj or be eligible for election or appointment to. or be entitled to hold any 
office or place of public trust, honor, or emolument in, under, or for any such Terri- 
tory or place, or under the United States. • 

The ninth and last section is as follows: 

Sec. 9. That all the registration and election offices of every description in the 
Territory of Utah are hereby declared vacant, and each and every duty relating to 
the registration of voters, the conduct of elections, the receiving or rejection of votes, 
and the canvassing and returning of the same, and the issuing of certificates or other 
evidence of election, in said Territory, shall, until other provisions be made by the 
legislative assembly of said Territory, as is hereinafter by this section provided, be 
performed, under the existing laws of the United States and said Territory, by 
proper persons, who shall be appointed to execute such offices and perform such 
duties by a Board of five persons, to be appointed by the President, by and with the 
advice and consent of the Senate, not more than three of whom shall be members of 



112 THE TERRITORY OF UTAH. 

one political party, and a majority of whom shall be a quorum. The members of 
said Board so appointed by the President shall each receive a salary at the rate of 
three thousand dollars per annum, and shall continue in office until the legislative 
assembly of said Territory shall make provision for filling said offices as herein 
authorized. The Secretary of the Territory shall be the Secretary of said Board, and 
keep a journal of its proceedings, and attest the action of said Board under this sec- 
tion. The canvass and return of all the votes at elections in said Territory for 
members of the legislative assembly thereof shall also be returned to said Board, 
which shall canvass all such returns and issue certificates of election for those persons 
who, being eligible for such election, shall appear to have been lawfully elected, 
which certificates shall be the only evidence of the right of such persons to sit in such 
assembly: Provided, That said Board ol five persons shall not exclude any person 
otherwise eligible to vote, from the polls on account of any opinion such person may 
entertain on the subject of bigamy or polygamy, nor shall they refuse to count any 
such vote on account of the opinion of the person casting it, on the subject of bigamy 
or polygamy, but each house of such assembly, after its organization, shall have 
power to decide upon the election and qualifications of its members. And at or 
after the first meeting of said legislative assembly, whose members shall have been 
elected and returned according to the provisions of this act, said legislative assembly 
may make such laws, comformable to the organic act of said Territory, and not in- 
consistent with other laws of the United States, as it shall deem proper concerning 
the filling of the offices in said Territory declared vacant by this act. 

It will thus be seen that the duties of this Comiriission appertain 
only to matters of registration and election and eligibility to office, 
while the punishment of the crime of polygamy is left, as under the 
former law, to the courts of justice. 

Nor are we invested wath legislative authority. Our powers are 
of a quasi- judicial and administrative character. But from the gen- 
eral terms of many parts of the act, we have been obliged to exercise 
a considerable latitude of discretion to make the act effectual, con- 
fining ourselves within the limits of the law, according to our best 
judgment. 

We have heretofore communicated to the Department of the In- 
terior the difficulties we encountered on entering upon our duties last 
year; also the measures we adopted for excluding polygamists from 
registration and from the polls, and that we had excluded some 
twelve thousand men and women from registration and voting by 
reason of their disqualification under this act. Pursuing the same 
policy, we have had equal success ^t the general election held on 
the 6th of August, 1883, in excluding polygamists from the polls. 

The theory of the act of March 22, 1882, appears to be this: that 
a discrimination between those Mormons who practice polygamy 
and those who do not, placing a stigma upon the former and depriv- 



THE TERRITORY OF UTAH. II3 

ing them of the right of suffrage as well as the right to hold office, 
while, on the other hand, an inducement is held out to. the latter 
class, that by abstaining from the polygamic relation they 'will enjoy 
all the political rights of American citizens, would in time have the 
effect of inducing great numbers of the Mormon people to refrain 
from plural marriage. 

While such considerations are not likely to have much effect upon 
the elderly men who already have a plurality of wives and several 
families of children, they must have great weight with the young- 
men of the Territory, many of whom are ambitious and aspiring, 
and would not like voluntarily to embrace political ostracism. 

The leading Mormons, who are generally in polygamy, evi- 
dently perceive this tendency; and, therefore, ever since the pas- 
sage of this act, they have assiduously taught their people that this 
measure is transient, and that it will soon be set aside by the Federal 
courts or by the action or non-action of Congress. 

So far as we are advised, very few, if any, jllegal votes have 
been cast in Utah since the Commission took charge of registrations 
and elections in August, 1882. 

As to the declared objects of the act of Congress as therein set 
forth, so far as appertains to our duties, it is not denied that the 
operation of the act has been eminently successful; that is to say, 
the polygamists have all been excluded from the polls and from 
eligibility to office. Considering that during the twenty years since 
the anti-polygamy act of 1862 was passed, the penalties of that law 
have been enforced against not exceeding three persons, it would 
seem that in the enforcement of the present law against some 
twelve thousand polygamists who have been excluded from the 
polls, it must justly be regarded that the act has been fully and suc- 
cessfully executed. 

Before passing from this topic, we deem it proper to observe that 
no person well informed in regard to Utah affairs, could reasonably 
have expected, at the passage of the act, that there would be an im- 
mediate change in the political situation, nor that it would have an 
immediate effect in destroying the practice of polygamy; but the 
act must necessarily have a strong influence in that direction. The 
very existence of the law disfranchising the polygamists must tend 
to destroy their influence, whenever it is understood that this is to 
be a permanent discrimination. Those Mormons who have the 



1 14 TI^ TERRITORY OF UTAH. 7 

ballot will after a time be conscious of a power which they will be 
unwilling to use forever at the bidding of those who have it not. 
The fact, also, that it will be necessary to the preservation of the 
political influence of the "People's party" (as the Mormons style 
themselves) to have a^a^ge body of their members who are not 
polygamists, must tend in time to weaken the practice of polygamy, 
for every married Mormon who takes but one plural wife loses three 
votes for his party — his own and those of his two wives (woman suf- 
frage being established by law in Utah). iVnother consideration, 
already adverted to, the influence upon the young men and the 
rising generation, is entitled to great weiglit. Seeing all the offices 
of honor, trust, and profit, such as Delegate to Congress, members 
of the legislative assembly, probate judges, clerks of the county 
courts, sheriff's, and others, many of them quite lucrative, held by 
monogamists, w^hil^ polygamists are wholly excluded, the aspiring- 
young men of the Territory would present an anomaly in human 
nature if they should fail to be strongly influenced against going 
into a relation which thus subjects them to political ostracism and 
fixes on them the stigma of moral turpitude. 

The difficulty of the situation can be l)etter understood from the 
fact that among the orthodox Mormons of Utah polygamy is a part 
of their religious faith, and while but a small per cent, of the whole 
adult Mormon population have actually entered into the polygamic 
relation, yet all the faithful believe in it as a divine revelation. The 
Mormons believe in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a 
great deal besides, namely, the Book of Mormon, and divers so- 
called revelations claimed to have been received by the prophet 
Joseph Smith and his successors, Brigham Young and John Taylor^ 
which are mostly printed in their Book of Doctrine and Covenants. 
Among these so-called revelations is one in favor of a plurality of 
wives. 

That a doctrine and practice so odious throughout Christendom 
vshould have been upheld so many years against the laws of Congress 
and the sentiments of the civilized world, is one of the marvels of 
the nineteenth century, and can be scarcely am>reciated even by 
those who are familiar with the w^orld's histor}*- in relation to the 
difficulties of governmental control or suppression of religious fa 
naticism. 

Certainly, no government can permit a violation of its laws under 
the guise of religious freedom; and while Congress may not legis- 



THE TERRITORY OF UTAH. US' 

jate as to mere matters of opinion^ yet it may denounce and punish 
as crimes those actions which are in violation of social duties or 
subversive of good, order. It was upon this principle that the 
Supreme Court of the United States held the anti-polygamy law of 
1802 to be valid and constitutional. (Reynolds vs. The United 
States, 8 Otto.) .,^^S;i, 

The right of Congress to suppress this great evil is undoubted. 
It is equally plain that the dignity and the good name of this great 
Government among the nations of the earth demand such Con- 
gressional action as shall effectually eliminate this nati(»nal disgrace 

In our report of November 17, 1882, we made several recommen- ^ 
dations, which were substantially incorporated into Senate bill No. 
3238 of the last session of Congress, reported by the Judiciary Com- 
mittee, December 13, 1882. This bill, however, contains some other 
provisions besides those mentioned, and we hope that the proposed 
measure as a whole will receive the favorable consideration of 
Congress at its next session. The recommendations above referred 
to — re-submitted as a part of this report — are as follows: 

In our judgment, a marriage law enacted by Congress would be an efficient aux- 
iliary in the suppression of polygamy. Ut is asserted and generally believed by non- 
Mormons in this Territory that plural marriage is still practiced here in secret. We 
would recommend that Congress enact a law declaring all future marriages in this 
Territory null and void unless they are contracted and evidenced in the manner pro- 
vided by the act. For example: that all marriages shall be solemnized in certain 
designated public places, artd witnessed by such persons and registered in such 
public offices as to make the proof of marriage morally certain; providing, also, that 
the person officiating in the marriage ceremony, together with the parties and wit- 
nesses, shall make their affidavits against polygamy, and set forth the time and place 
and other particulars relating to the marriage, or allow marriages to be 
solemnized in private, but with the like guarantees of registration, affidavits, wit- 
nesses, etc., and in either case providing penalties for violation of the act by any of 
-the persons concerned therein. In making this suggestion we omit the details, 
which can readily be supplied by reference to the marriage acts of most of the States. 

In our former report we adverted to the law of this Territory conferring on women 
the right of suffrage. This law was enacted by the Territorial legislature some 
twelve years ago. Of course, it is competent for Congress to repeal or annul this 
law. Without expressing any opinion on the question of women suffrage in general, 
we are satisfied that, owing to the peculiar state of affairs in Utah, this law is an ob- 
struction to the speedy solution of the vexed question. 

In the prosecution of polygamy cases here it is difficult to prove the first or legal 
marriage. We would suggest as a remedy that the first or legal wife be declared by 
act of Congress a competent witness in sUch prosecutions. 



Il6 THE TERRITORY OF UTAH. 

Under the act of Congress by virtue of whose provisions this Commission was ap- 
pointed, the people of Utah appear to be put upon probation until a legislative as- 
sembly elected under the provisions of the act shall meet and pass the requisite laws 
concerning registration and election. 

If, however, the next session of the legislative assembly, elected under the act of 
Congress, shall fail to respond to the will of the nation, Congress should have no 
hesitation in using extraordinary measures to compel the people of this Territory to 
obey the laws of the land. 

The present legislature, chosen at the August election, is com- 
posed wholly of Mormons, none of whom, however, live in polygamy. 
This legislature will convene in January next. It will be their duty, 
under the act of 1882, to adopt measures, in conformity with the 
provisions of that law, for the suppression of polygamy. Whether 
the legislature will take such action, may not properly be discussed 
by us in advance of Xhit opportunity given them by the law to do so. 
If they shall fail in this respect when the time shall come for them 
to act, this Commission will be prepared to recommend, and Con- 
gress certainly will not delay the adoption of, the most stringent 
measures compatible with the limitations of the Constitution that 
may be considered necessary for the suppression of this great evil. 
In view of the fact that this contingency might come, we have al- 
ready given the subject of such further legislation much study and 
reflection, and will be ready at the proper time, if the case requires, 
to promptly present our views for the consideration of the President 
and Congress. 

In the interim between the November election for Delegate to 
Congress and the general election in August, 1883, municipal elec- 
tions were held in a number of cities and towns^ under rules and 
orders of this Board. 

But the most important election was that of August 6, 1883, a 
general election for members of the legislative assembly, probate 
judges, clerks of the county courts, assessors and collectors, county 
recorders, sheriffs, county treasurers, county superintendents of dis- 
trict schools, and other county officers, and many precinct officers, 
numbering in all nine hundred and sixty that were elected, all of 
whom, as well as all the voters, are monogamists. 

In June, prior to the election, the Commission caused a revision 
of the registration to be made in all the prrecincts of the Territory, 
excluding all polygamists from the lists, an abstract of which, 
marked "A," page 65, is hereto appended. 



THE TERRITORY OF UTAH. II7 

The election was conducted, in general, in a quiet and orderly 
manner. The total number of votes cast was 31,961, against 27,923 
at the last November election. The principal falling off in the vote 
was on the part of Gentiles, or Liberal party. In November the 
total vote of the People's (or Mormon) party was 23,039; Liberal, 
4,884. In August, 1883, the total vote of the People's party was 
30,508; Liberal, 1,453; from which it appears that large numbers of 
the Liberals refrained from voting, a fact much to be regretted, 
for the reason that it is believed that by proper effort and "good 
management," one or more non-Mormons might have been elected 
to the legislative assembly, who would have the opportunity of put- 
ting the majority on record. 

In pursuance of the ninth section of the act of Congress, the 
Commission appointed a board of five canvassers to canvass the re- 
turns of the election, except those for members of the legislative 
assembly, which under the act are to be canvassed by this Commis- 
sion. 

After public notice in the newspapers, the said, board of canvas- 
^sers assembled, with the members of this Commission, at Salt Lake 
City, and the election returns were canvassed, the result ascertain- 
ed, and certificates of election were awarded. 

Recently some ten suits were instituted in the Third District 
Court of Utah, by Mormons, against the members of this Commission, 
complaining that they had been unjustly deprived of the right to 
register and vote. These are understood to be test cases, designed 
to contest the constitutionality of the Edmunds act, as well as the 
legal construction which we put upon its provisions. These suits 
are still undecided, and are likely to be appealed to the Supreme 
Court of the United States. 

It has been asserted that polygamic marriages have increased 
since the passage of the Edmunds act; on the contrary, we have the 
opinion of many Mormons and non- Mormons that they have com- 
paratively decreased since the passage of said act. After diligent 
inquiry, we believe the latter conclusion is correct. But the Utah 
legislature will have the opportunity of satisfying the country on 
this particular subject by passing such a public marriage act as that 
which we have suggested to Congress. 

By this and such other legislation as we have indicated, they will 
give the Government assurance of their loyalty and patriotism, and 
avert a contest that cannot but result in their discomfiture.
