Oaths The cMscmcnt Bill Reported to the House With Favorable Recom mendation SALT LAKE TniBtrT BURSATJ 51 Fourteenth Street WASHISCTON D April 28 1SCO The Jlonuon disfranchising bill was taken up in the House Committee on Territories this morning and a favorablo report ordered by a strict party vote It now goes on tho House calendar to i which it ordered shortly after tho House convened Following is a synopsis of tho report of tho committee The EdmundsTucker act provides that an oath should be taken precedent to voting In accordance with the law tlie Utah com mission prepared m oath the form of which is embodied in the Referring to the law it will bo seen that It was the tontion of Congress to bind tho voters to an observance of tho laws passed sup pression of polygamy At tho time tho law was enacted an opinion was entertained by many persons that no Mormon would take such an oath without having formed a clear intention to obey it Doubtless this opinion had a controlling effect In the passage of the law The Peoples party issued an ad dress to the voters with respect to the oath its effect meaning using the following language questions that Intending voters need therefore to ask themselves are those Aro we guilty of the crimes in said act or havewe a present intention of committing the crimes or aiding abetting causing or advising any other person to commit them Male citizens who answer these ques tions In the negative are under the exist laws voters and office Probably no languagecould have beeu used more misleading than the above The very purpose of Congress in law and tho plain letter of tho law contemplates that tho voters and office holders of the Ter ritory should give the law for the suppres sion a firm loyal support the Mormon voters wero instructed by the time of registrar tion tbeyttienaud thorehad to violate said law they were eligible for regis tration and qualified to take the oath be successfully aenled that it was purpose anoV intention of that those who registered held office or acted as jurors should have formed a pur pose to thereafter obey Its requirements but the results of the registration under the action of the Mormon leaders rendered the law absolutely nugatory in accomplish ing the purposes for which it was enacted In fact with respect to the in tention of the Mormon voters concerning polygamy tho law has had no effect and is today a dead An extract from tho Utah Commissions report is quoted It will therefore be seen that additional legislation is necessary to give full force effect to the existing The bill reported will in the opinion of the committee meet the difficulty Similar provisions have successfully en forced In Idaho and the Supreme Court has affirmed its validity The der cislon of the Supreme Court is here quoted The committee further says that no relig ions right is Invaded by the bill and no constitutional be urged to passage It will close the door to the eva sionswhich have made the present taws
