Amends article 10, section 6

[The 1900 Laws of Utah mentions the expense of printing the text of these amendments in county newspapers, as required by Article XXIII of the Utah Constitution. We are not sure when/whether it was actually presented to voters for ratification. If it was presented to voters, we can infer that they rejected it, since this amendment was not incorporated into subsequent editions of the Utah Constitution.]
