President Snow and Smith consented to the tabernacle being used for a concert to raise funds for the injured and bereaved at Scofield, Utah.

President Smith and Bishop [William B.] Preston, as trustees of the B[righam]. Y[oung]. College, had a long talk with President Snow regarding the college affairs, which resulted in the promise that President Snow would do his best to see that the College had an appropriation of $12,000. for the next school year; and he is to let the same institution have $6,000. in six months from today

to enable them to meet this year's expenses, the trustee having to borrow in the meantime.

-- May 8, 1900; Tuesday
Presidents [Lorenzo] Snow, [George Q.] Cannon and [Joseph F.] Smith were at the office today. At noon President Cannon brought to the attention of the other brethren the fact that he had been approached by parties desiring him to allow his name to be used at the forthcoming Republican State Convention as a candidate to be sent as a delegate to the National Convention to be held at Philadelphia [Pennsylvania] next month of the purpose of nominating a candidate for President of the United States and formulating a platform for the party. President Snow remarked that Judge [George W.] Bartch had already interviewed him on the same subject on several occasions recommending that President Cannon be sent as one of the delegates. The conversation resulted in President Snow's leaving the matter entirely with Brother Cannon to act as he deemed best. President Cannon stated that he had no desire to seek this honor.

Attorney Franklin S. Richards called at the office and presented a form of Articles of Incorporation and deeds to be used for the organization of Church corporations in Idaho, which had been examined by LeGrand Young and approved by him. All the First Presidency and Presiding Bishopric (who were present) sanctioned the forms presented and directed that corporations should be organized in the different wards of Idaho, for the purpose of holding Church property.
