-- Jun 28, 1900; Thursday
President [Lorenzo] Snow was not feeling so well this morning, he did not rest well and vomited considerably in the night. Presidents [George Q.] Cannon and [Joseph F.] Smith were at the office in the morning and again in the afternoon.

The meeting of the Presidency and the Apostles was convened in the Temple at 11 o'clock. There were present Presidents George Q. Cannon and Joseph F. Smith, Brigham Young [Jr.], Francis M. Lyman, Anthon H. Lund, Abraham O[wen]. Woodruff, Rudger Clawson and Reed Smoot. ...

Brother Reed Smoot, who was appointed to attend the funeral services of those of our people who fell victim in the Scofield [Utah] disaster, and who had since interested himself more or less in their behalf with the officials of the coal company, now presented a proposition to be made to the survivors as full settlement in the shape of damages. This proposition is on the basis of monthly payments for three years, and the amount to be paid and divided, will amount to something more than $100,000. It is understood that the distribution of the general contributions will be made in bulk, thereby giving the sufferers something in hand, while the company?s gift will be paid monthly. The Council were unanimous in feeling that the company's proposition ought to be accepted by the sufferers in full settlement, and in order that Brother Smoot might feel authorized to advise our people to accept the proposition, the following motion became the sense of the Council: That we consider the terms as read by Brother Smoot and understood by us as satisfactory, and that he be authorized to advise the people to accept the company's proposition.

Brother Smoot stated that the Utah Loan and Trust Company's

business could not be wound up for less than a payment of thirty-five thousand dollars by the church; and he advised that this bank be closed as soon as possible, as its condition was gradually getting worse and worse, [to] say nothing of a monthly loss of $350. expenses in running it over its income. Nothing could be done about it in the absence of President Snow. ... (1)
