George A. Townsend writes about the debates surrounding the Cullom Bill. He describes Cullom, the bill’s sponsor, and Hooper, the Utah delegate and a leading opponent of the bill. The bill’s supporters believe it will enforce past laws, punish polygamists, and reduce the power of Brigham Young. The opponents believe it will cause more harm than good. The punishments are harsh and superfluous, and the law may fuel feuds among the Mormons. Despite their moral crimes, the Mormons are industrious and help fuel emigration and settlement of the West. .
