125 years ago today - Dec 29, 1898 (Thursday)

Pres. Lorenzo Snow, in a telegraphic communication to the New York World, declared officially that polygamous or plural marriages ceased in Utah with the issuance of the manifesto by the late Pres. Wilford Woodruff in 1890, and that the election of Brigham H. Roberts to Congress was an entirely secular affair, with which the Church had nothing to do.
