Let the court tell us that the manifesto of October 17 is a real legal foundation upon which we republicans could exist as persons of legality, persons who acted within the law, despite our opinions and intentions.
But if this manifesto is the foundation of the whole new system in force, we must recognize, gentlemen of the court, that our present state system is based on panic, and that the panic, in turn, was based on the political strike of the proletariat.
The manifesto of October 17 was received with a vote of no confidence; the masses feared, and with good reason, that the government would fail to introduce the promised freedoms.

It also helped the formation of different classes and new skills within society.The October manifesto basicly tided up the rough edges of the industrialisation process.
Date: 04 Apr 2002 8:56 AM I suggest that industrialisation was more important as it meant there was a concentration of dissatisfied workers in St. Petersburg, makeing it possible for the 1917 revolution to happen, as in the first months they forced the Tsar to resign.
Also, the October manifesto had no lasting effect on Russia as the Dumas it created had no real constitutional power.

The 1890 Manifesto, the 1904 second Manifesto, the release of Apostles Taylor and Cowley as apostles in 1906, and the Church trials of the new polygamists which began in 1907, were all surrounded by ambiguity.
On the day of the Manifesto was accepted by the General Conference in October 1890, he personally approved seven new plural marriages, to be performed in Mexico.
In October 1905, he submitted a resignation similar to John W. Taylor's, and it also was not supposed to be used unless it was absolutely necessary.

In October 1903, he heard Marriner W. Merrill advise three Apostles to marry plural wives, and yet in 1904 he testified under oath before the U.S. Senate that he had never heard a discussion of plural marriage in the Temple.
About plural marriage after the Manifesto, he only knew of it through what his father had told him, George F. Richards, who was one of the replacements he was the replacement for Matthias F. Cowley when he was released in 1906.

 Mormon Polygamy after Wilford Woodruff's manifesto
Although the First Presidency prior to the Manifesto had imposed and then rescinded various kinds of restrictions on performing plural marriages outside the United States, the understanding of the First Presidency and apostles in September-October 1890 was that the Manifesto prohibited new polygamy only in the United States.
Utah civil marriage laws also sheltered such arrangements from prying eyes: it was possible for residents of one county to obtain a marriage license in a different county and have the civil ceremony performed in a third county.
The fifth means of marrying a plural wife after the Manifesto without Church authority (at least in the traditional sense) involved a man and woman making solemn covenants of marriage without a ceremony being performed.

 Compare the 1905 & 1917 Russian Revolutions
Therefore, when Czar Nicholas II signed the October Manifesto in October of 1905, it appeased the desires of many Russians.
Also, soon after the 1905 revolution had died down, Czar Nicholas II disbanded the Duma and violated many of the civil liberties promised in the October Manifesto.
As a result, by 1917 another revolution had begun, not from a lack of freedom as in 1905, but from the violation of the October Manifesto.

 Post-manifesto Mormon Polygamy
That such a marriage has never been acknowledged in the Woodruff family’s published genealogies is no argument against its existence: those genealogies also fail to mention that he married Eudora Young Dunford as a plural wife in 1877, even though she bore him a child that died the day of its birth.
What President Snow had done in October 1898 was stop plural marriages that required his personal knowledge and consent for specific individuals; what Ivins did in Mexico and Cowley did in the United States no longer required the Church President’s personal knowledge.
On 7 October 1899, an anti-Mormon filed a legal complaint against President Snow for unlawful cohabitation with Minnie J. Snow due to the birth of their polygamous child.
