140 years ago today - Jan 8, 1880

LDS political newspaper, the Salt Lake Herald, reports George Q. Cannon's interview with the pro-Mormon Omaha newspaper, the Herald, in part: "Polygamous marriages have ceased entirely so far as I know." In fact, in the Endowment House alone, 107 men married polygamously in 1879 and 136 in 1880, most were performed by general authorities.
