Bold to He Constitutional By the Supremo
WasHinoton, May 99. The supreme
court of the United Htntes has rendered
an opinion of vital interest to the Mor
mon church, iu the suit uf the Church
of Latter Day Ssi'its against the United
States, which comes here on appeal from
the decision of the supreme court of
Utah In favor of the United Htatea. The
court afllnn that judgment.
The i s' e grow out of the passage of
the h Ini inilH it'itt-iioivgumy law by the
Forty-ninth c iigreea. This law, among
other things, dissolved the Mormou
church i irpnration, niriulled its charter.
directed the appointment of a receiver
to wind up its affaire, and escheated to
the Unite.! Suite., all the real estate
owned br the church in excess of &10.
000 which was not on the date of the
passage of the act held for purposes of
worship or burial. When the United
States, under the terms of this act, be
gan proceedings to couflscnte abont
lu' Vl.OOO worth of to perty belonging to
the chnrch the iiuiinons immediately
entered suit to nave tne Edmunds taw
declared unconstitutional. It was ar
fued before the supreme court, in their
ehalf, that congress, by tha dissolution
of the church corporation, had assumed
judicial powers, and that the act of the
i.i.. T u : .
ie((iHiniivr nosoiiioiy uwi iiivi sjii-
ing the ohnrch constituted a contract
which could not be impaired by com
Srses, under its authority to repeal tor
It was also held that tha doctrine of
escheat was alien to the spirit of free in
titutiona, and that it had never been
applied in this country to a church or
snaritable corporation. One the part of
file United States it was contended thnt
congress had authority to repeal all ter
ritorial enactments; thut the act incor
porating the church was invalid, as an
attempt to establish a religion contrary
to the provisions of the constitution, and
that, moreover, the charter should be
annullod for abuse of the granted rights.
As, wheu the church corporation was
dissolved, there wan no one to whom to
turn over the tironertv. it was Drorjerlv
escheated to the United States.
In its opinion the court says: A dis
tinguishing feature of Monnonism is
well known to lie polygsmy and an ab
solute ecclcsiastioal control of its chnrch
members. Notwithstanding all the ef
forts made to suppress this barbarous
practice of olyiramv. tha sect perse
veres, in ilenance of law, in protutguting
and promoting this nefarious doctrine.
The existence of such a proiiaganda is a
blot on our Hvilisation. Tne organisa
tion of a community for the spread of
PoIykhiiiv is a return to barlwrism. The
question, therefore, ia whether the pro
motion of such an unlawful system, so
repugnant to our law, is to be allowed
to continue, and, whether the enormous
funds which hava been accumulated
shall lit wielded for the propagation of
the obnoxious practice fur the promo
tion of an organized reiWiinn
against the laws of the United
Btatoa. The history of the gov
ernment's deslings with tha Mormons is
out of patience on the part of the Amer
ican government and or resistance to
law afid pitiless strocities on the part of
the Mormons. The contention that
polygamy is a part of the Mormon's re
ligious belief Is a sntiUistical plea. No
doubt the thugs of India imagined thnt
their belief In assassination was a re
ligions belief, hut thut did not make it
aocletv has a perfect right to pro
hibit offenses against tha enlightened
sentiment of mankind. Since the
ohurch persists in claiming the right to
nee the funds with which it has been
endowed for the purpose of promoting
these unlawful practice, the question
arise, has the government the right to
seise these fund which the Mormon
leaders are misusing and devote them
to worthy and charitable purrsaws as
nearly akin as possible to those to which
the funds were dedicated f
After an el ilsirate historical review of
the common law, the court comes to the
conclusion that congress had the right
to seise tha property and says: "Con-
a nad beiore it a cnntninaclons or-
anlxation, wielding by its resonrres an
uuuienss tavwrr in tha territory of Utah
and emiiloving thiw resources In con
stantly attempting to optiose, subvert
and thwart the legislation of congress
and tha will of tha government of the
united mates. i nner men eircnin-
itances wa have no doubt of the right
of congress to do aa it did."
Tbs degree ni tha lower court Is af
firmed. Justice Bradley delivered the
Chief Justice Fuller said that ha and
Justices Field and Lamar ware con
strained to disent from this decision.
The power of congress to legislate over
the territories was nut incident to the
treat v-tnskinr nuwor. nnd its nnwee ia
restricted directly to that expressed or
implied in the constitution. There is no
inch power granted as I hat involved in
the act uml'T consideration. Congress
unquestionably has jsiwer to suppress
polygamy, ami It Is iinnmterlal whether
the crime was committed in the name of
religion. But congress has not power to
selxoand rnnlWate the priqwrty of cor
porations la-cause they may hava been
guilty of crime.
