Mormon tells Senator Reed Smoot's secretary that "Apostle [Abraham O.] Woodruff told him that a certain number or worthy people had been commissioned to keep alive the principle of plural marriage." This view is basis of Mormon Fundamentalist movement which does not fully emarge until 1920's. Woodruff, who died in Jun after visiting his post-Manifesto plural wife and her first baby, is honored as polygamy martyr by these Mormons.
