[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] ... Their is anoth[er] thing. Lorenzo Snow presides over that region & is a prudent wise man yet he has strong pregudices & does not pull on the same strings that I do. There has been a kind of a spirit to keep Dives Down But I believe if he had had the sole Controll of things there as the presidet opened the meetings & preached to the people He would have made a good smart preacher. But I never saw the man that was kept down by his superiors that Could rise above it. ... (1)

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 15 We travelled to Pason. 33 miles. Held a meeting with the People. Their was a Division among the people. Some had petitioned to President Young for a New Bishop. F D. Richards spoke & I followed him & then C. C. Rich followed. Lorenzo Snow & myself spent the night with Brother Gardner. We Preached Concerning the Bishop & the people their feelings against each other.

Brother Gardner told us that Brother Hancock said in one of his meetings that there was no person Stood between him & Presidet Brigham Young. He wanted the people to give their money to him & let him dictate their temperal Business for them. He said no person had a right to petition president Young against him. He makes the roads into the Canyons Controlls all the timber sells it to the armey works all the time Sundays. He lets the tithing property go to waste But takes Care of his own. He sells the tithing potatoes to the Army for $2 & pays the Church 75 cts. He ordered a house to be pulled down if they would not stop a party. These are some of the Complaints against the Bishop.
