Salt Lake March 1 Governor
ells has vetoed the Kvnns bill re
lating to the mnklng of complaiiiLs
nnd commencing of prosecutions In
criminal cases In his veto message
to the senate he says In my opinion
nothing can be clearer than this
bill If passed would be welcomed
and employed as a most effective
weapon against the very classes
whose condition It is Intend d to
ameliorate Furthermore 1 have rea
son to believe Its enactment would be
the signal for a general leniatd upon
the national congress for a constitu
tional amendment directed against
certain social conditions here n de
mand which under the present cir
cumstances would surely bo compiled
with While It may be urged that in
every event tho poor could be niude
to suffer is It not an odious thought
repulsive to every good citizen of
whatsoever creed or parly that the
whole state should thus be put under
a ban Surely there Is none so selfish
and unpatriotic as to argue that this
Is preferable to the endurance of a
few Isolated Instances of prosecution
unbacked as they are by either re
spectable moral support or sympathy
All of us can readily recall the condi
tions of the past as compared with
those of today In the shortest mem
ory still remain incidents of that dis
tressing period shortly before state
hood during which so much sorrow
and bitterness stalked through our
community Of still more recent
date no longer than two years ago
another outburst was threatened
and to home extent was manifested
But us u termination of the first
cutne concession and amnesty and ev
idence of good faith and at length
statehood I yield to no one in af
fection for those of my people who
from the highest motives and beeaubo
they believed In a divine command en
tered Into the relation of plural mar
riage born and reared In Utah my
self u product of that marriage sys
tem taught from Infancy to regard
my lineage as approved of tho al
mighty and proud today as I liuve
ever been of my heritage It will be
granted I trust that every Instinct of
my nature reaches out to shield my
friends from barm and to protect
them from unjust attack But in that
same heart 1 Hud also the solemn
feeling that this bill holds out only
a false hope of protection and that
lu offering a phantom of relief to n
few it In reality invites a deluge of
discord and disaster upon all For
these reasons briefly and Imperfectly
stated and for many others which
might be given at length I am unable
to approve the bill now before me
