Title About
Description On September 9, 1850, the Congress of the United States passed the "Organic Act" which created the Territory of Utah, covering the territory formerly ruled over by the State of Deseret. Until September 22, 1851, no particular jurisdiction was taken of the territory of the State of Deseret by the Territory of Utah, until that date, when the first legislature of the Territory of Utah convened at its capital. During all this interregnum from September 9, 1850, and up to September 22, 1851, the laws of the State of Deseret constituted the rule and guide for all legal matters in the then Territory of Utah. Among the first acts of the first legislature of the Territory of Utah was a law passed and approved on October 4, 1851, legalizing all the laws of the State of Deseret and making them binding and in full force in the Territory of Utah, until repealed; provided, that any of the laws passed by the State of Deseret in conflict with the "Organic Act" of said Utah Territory, should be null and void. Owing to the fact that nearly all of the original edition of the compilation of 1851 of the laws of the State of Deseret have disappeared from sight or have been destroyed, induce us to reprint the same "verbatim et literatim," so that libraries and lawyers could procure, if desired, a copy of the oldest compilation of laws made by Anglo-Saxons west of the Missouri river. In addition to the compilation of 1851, we ha^e added in an Appendix, the Constitution of the State of Deseret, and a few laws that the compiler neglected to insert in said compilation. Only a Small Number Have Been Printed and the Type Distributed. SHEPARD BOOK COMPANY, Publishers, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH. October 1, 1919.
