Voters in Utah approve of their sixth constitution.

A major concession to the federal government made by Mormon polygamists is included by a provision declaring that bigamy and polygamy are "incompatible with a republican form of government."

Both are made misdemeanors, but this attempt at statehood will fail like the previous five.
