The present legislature , though made ip of monogamous Mormons , ii yet thor oughly the creature of the church. It is probable , therefore , while the church will ceep up the sham show of opposition , it vill instruct the legislature to pass a law making polygamy .1 crime , and the territory hux purged of the only wrong known to the general public , will apply for admission as a tate with good prospecta of getting in and giving the priesthood proportionately in- reased power. _ Alliance Formed by the Union Pacific , Hock Island and St. Paul.
