Lorenzo Snow, Sep 16, 1901; Monday

-- Sep 16, 1901; Monday
President [Lorenzo] Snow attended a Sugar Company meeting today, and was at the office as usual attending to the regular duties. He sent the following message yesterday afternoon to Mrs. William McKinley:

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints most sincerely condoles with you and our nation in the sore bereavement, and in the great loss sustained in the death of our beloved friend and president.

(Signed) Lorenzo Snow.["]

President Angus M. Cannon called at the office to see President Snow in relation to holding memorial services for President William McKinley who was assassinated. The services to be held in the Tabernacle on Thursday, agreeable with Governor [Heber M.] Wells' proclamation. It was decided to hold such services, also to ask the various stake presidents to do likewise. An announcement to this effect was placed in the Deseret News. (1)


-- Sep 17, 1901
[Lorenzo Snow to David H. Cannon, Sept. 17, 1901] I am in receipt of a letter from sister Susie Miller, of Parawon [Utah], who is to be married in the St. George Temple the latter part of this month. Her letter sets forth in substance that she was previously married, that her husband, by whom she had children, died about 4 years ago with out taking her and the children to the temple for the purpose of hav ing the sealing ordinance performed in behalf of him and her, and having her children sealed to them, and that when reminded by her that these ordinances had not been attended to he treated the matter in differently and died without sensing the mistake he had made. [She writes] that she now desires to be sealed to her intended husband, and have her children adopted to to [sic] him, and [to] ask my consent that this be done. This will authorize you to seal Sister Miller to her intended husband and adopt the children by her former husband to the man she is about to marry. But in giving you this authorization I desire you to frankly state to these parties that I consent to this being done wholly on the ground that Sister Miller requested it, leaving the justness of this course (that is, adopting the children of her former husband to her intended husband) to be settled in the hereafter where everything which may be done here not strictly in harmony with justice and righteousness will be corrected.

Lorenzo Snow, Sep 13, 1901; Friday

-- Sep 13, 1901; Friday
A delegation of business men, among them L. S. Hills, W. W. Riter, John C. Cutler, accompanied by Bishop William B. Preston, called and recommended to President [Lorenzo] Snow that they be authorized to telegraph the Oregon Short Line people at New York that office quarters will be furnished to them, consisting of the upper three stories in the [Deseret] News building for $9,000 a year instead of $10,000. before asked for the same space, and that a ten year's lease be given them at that figure. After some talk President Snow consented that this be done. These brethren are interested in drawing as much business as possible to the north end of Main Street as against the efforts made by the Gentiles to pull to the South. (1)

Titles to Church properties-- Salt Lake City.

Again the problem of the Bishops holding legal title to Church property was moved one step closer to solution by the action of the Legislature of Utah.

Office of The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Salt Lake City, Utah, Sept. 13th, 1901.

President Angus M. Cannon,

DEAR BROTHER:

Since our letter to you, dated October 20th, 1899, referring to titles to Church properties in your stake, a law has been passed by the legislature of Utah authorizing a Bishop or Presiding Elder to incorporate without any Board of Directors or Trustees, and vesting the corporate powers in the Bishop or Presiding Elder, and his successor in office. This has greatly simplified the manner of holding titles to church property. When the property has been deeded to the Bishop or Presiding Elder, and he has taken the necessary steps to incorporate, no further action is necessary. The title then vests in the corporation, and when the Bishop dies, or, for any other cause, ceases to hold the office, his successor, by operation of law, succeeds to all the rights and powers of his predecessor.

The necessary blanks for the organization of ward corporations have been prepared by our attorney, and are in the hands of the Presiding Bishop, who has sent them directly to the bishops of the wards, with full instructions how to proceed to incorporate, and we hope that you will give the matter such personal attention as will insure complete organizations in all the wards of your stake as soon as practicable.

Blanks are also being prepared for the organization of stake corporations, which will be forwarded to you with instructions, it being designed to have the President of the Stake incorporate and hold the title to all stake properties, while the Bishop holds the title to all ward and tithing properties.

Hoping that you will give this matter your prompt and careful attention, we remain, with kind regards,

Your Brethren, LORENZO SNOW, JOSEPH F. SMITH. {1901-September 13-Circular letter, Church Historian's Library,} (2)

Lorenzo Snow, Sep 9, 1901; Monday

-- Sep 9, 1901; Monday
Brother George F. Gibbs came to the office this morning, having returned from Bear Lake last night, where he went on an outing on the 30th of August last. President [Lorenzo] Snow came in from Saltair on Friday last, the weather being unfavorable to his remaining there any longer.

Mr. O'Meara of this city (Salt Lake) brought a large number of Catholic friends to the President's office and introduced them to President Snow. They were chiefly from Denver, and their visit to Salt Lake City was to organize a Catholic society, which they did yesterday. President Snow tendered them free transportation to Saltair which they accepted. (1)


-- Sep 12, 1901; Thursday
Manager Horace G. Whitney of the Deseret News had a talk with President [Lorenzo] Snow this morning about renting the upper floors of the new News building to the Oregon Shortline people. He was authorized to inform them that they could have the three upper floors, with vault accommodations for $10,000 per year.

The Presidency and Apostles met in council in the Temple this morning where President Snow presided. Brother [John W.] Taylor reported having attended the Pocatello [Idaho] Stake conference. He found the people quite discouraged on account of a poor harvest this fall. Quite a number spoke to him about moving from there. Elder Brigham Young [Jr.] reported his visit to San Juan [Utah/Colorado] Stake conference held at Monticello [Utah]. The people of Bluff [Utah] and Monticello now owned the flour mill which they asked the Church some time ago to purchase; and the feeling of unrest and the desire to move away seems to have disappeared, and he believes that the people will now settle down and make a permanent home at Bluff. He said that they now acknowledged the fact that if the Church had bought the mill as they requested the place would most likely have been abandoned; but now they feel like holding on to it. The circumstances of the people too were quite prosperous.

Brother Young said he had been approached by the Durango Bank people about our people purchasing the Canal near Mancos [Colorado] which is said to have cost $200,000. The people who own it are dissatisfied and restless and want to sell out.

Bishop [William B.] Preston, accompanied by Elders Reed Smoot and George H. Brimhall, met President Snow in regard to the proportion of cash paid to the teachers of the Brigham Young Academy. They are now receiving one third in cash; it was decided that two thirds be paid them hereafter. (1)

Lorenzo Snow, Aug 29, 1901

-- Aug 29, 1901
[Temple] [Lorenzo Snow and Joseph F. Smith to Angus M. Cannon and counselors, Aug. 29, 1901, in MFP, 3:340-41; emphasis in original.] The following question has recently been asked us by one of our Stake Presidencies: How strict shall we be with young men who wish to go to the temple who have united themselves with secret orders? which has not been instituted of the Lord for the building up of His Zion in the earth, and to all brethren who manifest a desire to receive this advice we would give temple recommends, also permit them to join prayer circles if found otherwise worthy. ["]In addition to the above we feel to direct your attention to the importance of the young men under your jurisdiction receiving proper instruction on this subject before they join secret societies; and we would suggest, instead of making this a subject for public discourse, that it be talked of at priesthood and quorum meetings.["] (1)

[Apostle Marriner W. Merrill Diary] Sunday. Fountain Farm. I attended fast meeting today; spoke 10 minutes. I received a letter from President Snow asking me to go with Brother George Reynolds to the Big Horn country to attend a Conference there if I was able to go. I wrote him and also Brother Reynolds that I would go. To leave next Wednesday evening at 11:30 p. m. (2)


-- Sunday, Sep 8, 1901
[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary] Salt Lake City. Clear and cool. 10 a.m. Salt Lake Stake Conference, held in assembly hall, Pres. A.M. Cannon presiding. Attendance fairly good--much better than at the first session for several years past. This was due in the main to the fact that the conferences had been changed from Saturday and Sunday to Sunday alone with three sessions.

I made brief remarks and expressed gratification at the improvement as shown by the attendance and was also pleased to learn that all the bishops of the stake were present but three, and that the three were absent from the city or they would doubtless have been present. Said that while our whole people were shocked by the fearful news that came over the wires within a day or so--namely, that Wm. McKinley, president of the United States, had been shot and severely wounded, and brought near unto death by the hand of an assassin--yet we were pleased to learn this morning that he has a strong chance for recovery. I invoked the blessing of God upon him and said that I believe in so doing I was expressing the universal sentiment of the Latter-day Saints. Dwelt strongly upon the subject of marriage; reading from Section 132 on the "Eternity of the Marriage Covenant," pointed out the great responsibility resting upon parents and presiding officers of the church to teach the young people of

our faith the importance of being married for time and eternity in the temple, thus laying the foundation of their kingdoms firm and strong.

2 p.m. Continuation of conference at tabernacle, Pres. A. M. Cannon presiding. Pres. Lorenzo Snow followed and, referring to the attempted killing of Pres. McKinley, said he felt it to be the duty of the Latter-day Saints to pray for his recovery. Pres. McKinley, he said, had been called of the Lord to do the work assigned him. He will receive a great reward in the future life for that which he has accomplished in the interest of the nation. Sorrow, trouble, and affliction is absolutely necessary to those who receive a fullness of the Godhead. (3)

Lorenzo Snow, Aug 29, 1901; Thursday

-- Aug 29, 1901; Thursday
President [Lorenzo] Snow presided at the council meeting in the Temple today. ...

Brother [Matthias F.] Cowley here remarked that he met Brother Moses Thatcher on the street this morning, and that Brother Thatcher asked him what influence had been used to put Brother Thoresen in office. Brother Thoresen had always been a chronic kicker against the Priesthood. Brother [John Henry] Smith said that he, Brother [Marriner Wood] Merrill, and Brother Pitkin were of the opinion that the choice of Brother Thoresen as counselor would result for good as he wielded a strong influence over a great many of his Scandinavian brethren.

Rudger [Rudger] Clawson reported his visit to Uintah [Utah] Stake. He had released three members of the High Council on account of advanced age, and he set apart three younger men.

President Snow remarked that it would perhaps have been a good idea of Brother Clawson had informed the new High Councilors that they had been called to act in the position of High Councilors until it might be deemed advisable to release them, and that it would be whenever the authority saw fit to take that step and it would be expected that they would be found ready and willing to be released.

It having been remarked that a certain brother who held the office of a Seventy declined to be ordained a High Priest. President [Joseph F.] Smith said that if the seventies generally could be convinced that they were simply elders with a special calling as aids to the Apostles in preaching the Gospel in foreign lands, and their minds could be disabused of the idea placed thereby the teachings of the late Elder Joseph Young, President of the Council of Seventy, to the effect that the Seventies were Apostles, some of them would not perhaps feel as they do now.

Brother Cowley related a conversation he once had with the late President John Taylor, to the effect that a man holding the office of an Elder has all the authority necessary to preach the Gospel, and believing this to be true, thought the Elders should not be ordained Seventies in a wholesale way as they were now being ordained, but that they should be chosen according to their fitness to become aids to the Apostles.

President Snow remarked that when elders were ordained seventies no more Priesthood was conferred upon them, but that they were merely called to work in a special field. (1)

Secret orders and organizations-- Salt Lake City.

The same question of whether or not young men should be given recommends to go to the Temple if they had joined secret orders was raised earlier (July 9, 1896) by President Abram Hatch of the Wasatch stake. The essential answer is the same in both cases.

"The counsel of the First Presidency in all such cases has been against our brethren joining secret organizations ..."

Salt Lake City, Utah, August 29th, 1901.

Prest. Angus M. Cannon and Counselors,

DEAR BRETHREN:

The following question has recently been asked us by one of our Stake Presidencies:

How strict shall we be with young men who wish to go to the temple who have united themselves with secret orders?

That our views might be known and acted upon by Presidents of Stakes generally, we send you herewith a copy of the same, as follows:

"The counsel of the First Presidency in all such cases has been against our brethren joining secret organizations, and where any of them have already done so their counsel to them is to withdraw themselves from such organizations as soon as circumstances permit and wisdom dictate.

"It is true that many of our people have been led to join some of these societies on the ground that their aims and objects are purely charitable and social in their character, and besides, inducements are held out of procuring life insurance at greatly reduced rates. But however worthy their aims and objects may be, this fact remains: They are outside the pale of the church and kingdom of God, and brethren in allying themselves with them divide their allegiance with organizations that are man-made, and which have not been devised of the Lord for the building up of Zion; and in doing this they render themselves liable to have their feelings alienated, in whole or in part, from the church which requires their all. We may say on this point, that it is the testimony of brethren who have joined organizations of this character and severed their connections with them, that their tendency is to draw away from the church; and it may be said and expected, without question, if the lines were sharply drawn between Mormon and non-Mormon, that all such organizations would be found in the ranks of our enemies, on the principle set forth in the saying of our Savior, "Those who are not for us are against us."

We understand that plausible excuses are given for joining these organization which amount to certain financial advantages which it is expected our brethren will obtain either for themselves during their lifetime or for their families, at their death. Like excuses might reasonably be given by brethren who have run after the things of the world in the hope of accumulating wealth and who, by doing so, have as a general thing made shipwreck of their faith. While we cannot consent to aught calculated to bring division and consequent weakness to the church, at the same time we have no desire whatever to deal harshly with brethren who have been led to become members of lodges or secret societies; but to all such who have faith enough to receive our advice, we would say, shape your affairs so you can withdraw from them, and never be found again associating yourselves with any organization which has not been instituted of the Lord for the building up of His Zion in the earth, and to all brethren who manifest a desire to receive this advice we would give temple recommends, also permit them to join prayer circles if found otherwise worthy.

In addition to the above we feel to direct your attention to the importance of the young men under your jurisdiction receiving proper instruction on this subject before they join secret societies; and we would suggest, instead of making this a subject for public discourse, that it be talked of at priesthood and quorum meetings.

Lorenzo Snow, Aug 27, 1901; Tuesday

-- Aug 27, 1901; Tuesday
President [Lorenzo] Snow has been at Saltair the last four days. Brother [George F.] Gibbs took mail

out to him today.

A letter had been received from President [Collins R.] Hakes, asking how strict he and his Bishops should be with young men who join secret orders and apply for temple recommends. A letter was prepared by Brother Gibbs in answer to this question, which had been submitted to President [Joseph F.] Smith, and which was now submitted to President Snow, who also approved of it and directed that a copy be sent to each of the stakes. (1)


-- Thursday, Aug 29, 1901
[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary] Salt Lake City. Cloudy and cool; rain during night. 11 a.m. Meeting at the temple. Present: Presidents Lorenzo Snow and Jos. F. Smith, and Apostles Jno. H. Smith, Jno. W. Taylor, Anthon H. Lund, Matthias F. Cowley, Rudger Clawson, and Geo. F. Gibbs, clerk. Song, "Glory to God on High." President Snow was mouth in prayer. Song, "Farewell All Earthly Honors."

Apostle Taylor reported the attendance of himself and Reed Smoot at the Millard Stake Conference, where they had an excellent time.

Apostle Smith reported the completion of the Hyrum Stake organization at the last quarterly conference. Geo. Pitkin was sustained as 1st and I. C. Thorsen as 2nd counselor to Pres. Wm. Parkinson. He also reported the division of the Hyrum Ward into two wards, with H. R. F. Llinquist [Harold F. Liljenquist], son of the patriarch, as bishop of the 1st Ward, and Andrew A. Allen, returned missionary, as bishop of the 2nd Ward.

I reported my attendance at the Uintah Stake Conference. Said that by the recommendation and approval of the stake president, Saml. R. Bennion, the following changes were made: Israel J. Clark, Jas. H. Glines, and Harley Morey being aged and infirm, two of them quite deaf, were honorably released as high councillors, and the following three brethren called to take their place: Ward E. Pack, Jr., H. W. Woolley, and W. H. Siddoway; Jas. Hacking, 2nd counselor in the stake presidency, was released as stake supt. of the Sabbath Schools, and was succeeded by Chas. B. Bartlett; Hyrum B. Calder was sustained as 2nd counselor to Bp. Jno. N. Davis of Vernal, and Don. B. Colton was sustained as stake supt. [of] Religion Classes. I also reported that in returning from Vernal to Price by stage, at 8 o'clock in the evening, one of the horses laid down and died from heart failure, and we [were] seven miles from the stage station. The driver was, therefore, under the necessity of riding 7 miles

for another horse. He was gone until 10 p.m. and we did not get in until midnight.

The clerk read a letter from Moses Thatcher, in which he suggested the establishment in the Brigham Young Memorial Building of the Latter-day Saints University of a library in memory of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. If this were done, he would contribute property valued at $1000 to $1500. Pres. Snow said that he was opposed in his feelings to the founding of a memorial to the Prophet Joseph Smith that would cost less than the memorial statue to Brigham Young, the second great leader in the kingdom. As to the above offer, he did not feel that it came from the right source, and was, therefore, not entitled to favorable consideration. Perhaps in the future, when the church is free from embarrassment, a memorial of some kind might be erected to the memory of Joseph either in the shape of a library or something else, providing it would do honor to this, the greatest man of the nineteenth century, the prophet of God. It was thought by the brethren that Moses Thatcher is anxious to

reestablish himself in the good-fellowship of his brethren, and that this offer was put forth as a feeler. The thought was strongly expressed by Pres. Snow and Pres. Smith and others, that if Moses Thatcher wished to secure the good-will and confidence of his brethren, he should make full and ample confession for all his faults, and that nobody knows better than he does his duty in the premises. Benediction by Apostle Smith. (2)

President [Lorenzo] Snow presided at the Council meeting in the Temple. ...

Uniform method in sustaining Church authorities-- Salt Lake City.

This letter sought uniformity throughout the L.D.S. Church on procedures in voting to sustain general authorities and other church officials in both general and Stake conferences.

Salt Lake City, Utah, August 22nd, 1901.

Prest. Angus M. Cannon and Counselors,

DEAR BRETHREN:

It having come to our notice that different methods obtain in different stakes of presenting and voting upon the general authorities of the Church; and deeming it proper that uniformity be established in doing this we concluded to recommend to each Stake Presidency that the general authorities of the church be presented and voted upon at each stake conference in the same way that they are presented and voted upon at our general conferences.

Your Brethren, LORENZO SNOW, JOSEPH F. SMITH. {1901-August 22-Circular letter, Church Historian's Library,} (2)


-- Aug 26, 1901
Your wife Christine wrote to us recently representing herself to be in needy circumstance, and asking us to use our good offices to induce you to help her children. We wrote her in answer to this that on a previous occasion (about two years ago) she wrote a similar letter, and that you were communicated with respecting it, and that you answered in effect that inasmuch as it was a domestic affair it appeared only right and proper that she should address you direct regarding it. In reply to this letter Sister Christine has written again, from which we are sorry to learn that she failed to be informed of the contents of your letter referred to; and from her last letter we quote as follows: "Your letter reveals something which was unknown to me before, or, believe me, I should not have permitted Brother Booth to intrude my affairs upon your notice again. After I had sought your advice and aid two years ago, I was made acquainted with the decision of the Council of the Presidency and the step taken, but no further information ever reached me-whether a reply was received and what position Mr. Young assumed in the matter I never learned until today through your letter. Through an aversion of again broaching the subject I let the matter drop until recurring illness this summer again barred my way and left me apparently no place to which to turn except the only authority on earth that has influence in this matter. In reply to the spirit of Mr. Young's attitude I wish to submit this statement: Mr. Young was fully aware at all times of my condition that I had neither home nor means, no parents, no relatives who were in a position to help me, he knew fully that there was nothing to keep me and his two children from want all these twelve years except the effort of my hands, and that my health was such as to make that effort a severe trial he too was mad acquainted with through letters from the children. I assume that in the heart of every intelligent human being who seeks to do right, conscience has written a code of ethics that supplements the written letter of the law in governing the conduct of man and woman toward one another. I feel strongly that no man with a vestige of chivalry in his soul would humiliate a woman so as to force her to ask a favor of him that what in all human justice she has a right to claim as her due-the least reparation man can make for a life's happiness destroyed. That Mr. Young should desire me to write personally such requests or wish to read letters which at best would be painful reminders had never occurred to me, and when remittances ceased, I took it as conclusive that he either had not the means to meet his obligations or that he repudiated them. Hence the course of my conduct." We sympathize with Sister Young in the embarrassing position in which she is placed, and agree with her that she should not be required to ask for the assistance you may be able to render and which you should render her; and we trust therefore you will see your way clear to aid her, and that you will have the disposition to help her without further importuning on her part. We appreciate the fact that this is a delicate subject, and that you may feel sensitive about it, but there appears at present to be no other recourse for Sister Christine, and this must be our apology for writing you regarding it.
