purpose of complaining against Mr. Miller, for treatment they had received at Saltair.

They stated that there were three other societies who were full of complaints against the treatment they had received in a business way from the manager of that resort, Mr. Miller. President Snow expressed regret at hearing these complaints against Mr. Miller, and stated that he would have taken pleasure in rectifying them if he had been appealed to before these parties made other arrangements.

A Miss Jenkins, a school teacher of Kansas City [Missouri], called and had a talk with President Snow on some of the doctrines of the Church. Also Archie McAllister, a grandson of President Snow called with his wife and had a short visit.

Bishop William B. Preston and Horace G. Whitney called. President Snow submitted to them a written proposition made by President George Q. Cannon, as the head of the George Q. Cannon & Sons Company, in which President Cannon offers to sell out to the Church the entire business of the company including his presses; but this is not to include the Juvenile Instructor. This matter was talked over, and it was concluded to have someone on the part of the News to go through the stock and machinery with a view to estimating its value.

On the 25 ult. a letter was read written to Presidents Snow and Cannon and Elder Anthon H. Lund from S. P. Neve, and the following is taken from it as a criticism on Elder Andrew Jenson's work entitled "Church Chronology:"

While the book contains many references to its author and compiler, whose works and movements are paraded as events of great importance, it is silent regarding men far more worthy and much more prominent than himself and whose works are of greater consequence than anything he has ever done. I notice he omits all mention of such widely known and valuable works as parley P. Pratt's Autobiography; George Q. Cannon's History of Joseph Smith, and his History of Brigham Young, [Edward] Tullidge's, [Huber Howe] Bancroft's and [Orson F.] Whitney's Histories of Utah; B. H. Roberts' Life of John (1)
