Bishop Walter J. Beatie, of the Seventeenth ward, Salt Lake City, brought to the office a check for $305, with four shares of sugar stock, worth on the market today fifteen dollars a share. This means was turned over to the Church in compliance with the wishes of the late Sister Hannah Conklin Faetute, an old member of that Ward, who recently died, leaving her affairs in the hands of Bishop Beatie. He, after paying the funeral and other expenses of the deceased, thus turned over the balance, according to her desire.
Brother Robert R. Anderson, who had been employed to audit the books of the Salt Lake and Los Angeles Railroad and Saltair Beach Companies, made his report to the auditing committee this afternoon. (1)
