LDS Tithing Chronology

-- Monday, Jul 29, 1901
[Apostle Rudger Clawson] 2 p.m. Continuation of conference, Coun[selor]. Bassett presiding. The reports [by bishops and stake officers] were interesting and showed the stake to be in fairly good condition. The saints are doing a good work, and yet there is much room for improvement.

[Anthony W. Ivins] Apr. 1901 Meeting of Presidency, Apostles & Church Officers - Pres. Snow said that persons who are recommended for second annointings should be those who have made an exceptional record, that they are persons who would never apostatize. Pres. of Stakes assume a great responsibliity when they recommend persons for second annointings. Now I wish to say a word in regard to going back to Jackson County. The time is nearer than many of us suppose. I want to impress upon the minds of all that they connot go back to Jackson Co. unless they obey the law of tithing. Jos. Smith had a book in which all of the names of tithe payers was recorded which was called The Book of the Law of the Lord. This Church as a church woll never go back to Jackson Co. till the people learn to observe the law of the Lord. I fear that some of the bishops do not fully believe in the law of tithing. - Excellent remarks. ...Apostle John W. Taylor said when the Apostles or Priests. of 70 vi
sited the stakes don't put 2 in 1 bed but give them a clean bad & good house keeper. He killed 143 bed bugs in one bed at one time. (2)
