Delegates meet for a seventh constitutional convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the quest to achieve statehood. Polygamy is permanently banned, a serious concession on the part of Mormon polygamists.

This ban is made in accordance with the Enabling Act, a law signed by on President Cleveland on July 16, 1894 which establishes the conditions which Utah must meet to even be considered for statehood.

One of those conditions is, of course, the elimination of polygamy.
