[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary] Salt Lake City. Cloudy and mild, with showers during day. 11 a.m. Meeting at the temple. Present: Presidents Lorenzo Snow and J. F. Smith, and Apostles Jno. H. Smith, Geo. Teasdale, Anthon H. Lund, Matthias F. Cowley, Rudger Clawson, Reed Smoot, and Geo. F. Gibbs, clerk. Song, "Glory to God on High." Apostle Teasdale was mouth in prayer, and Apostle Cowley in the circle. Song, "I Know That My Redeemer Lives."
Conference appointments: Star Valley, Pres. J. F. Smith; Nebo, Geo. Teasdale; Granite, Jno. H. Smith. Appointment for Aug. 25 and 26, Rudger Clawson to Uintah, and for Sep. 4th and 5th, Panguitch, Reed Smoot, and Union Stake, Rudger Clawson.
The clerk read a letter from Apostle Lyman addressed to Apostle Clawson. The principle topic treated in the letter was the necessity for the new record recently adopted by the church for the European missions, and the suggestion of Apostle Lyman that 18 records be sent him at the expense of the church was approved. Apostle Clawson was instructed to attend to the matter.
Apostle Smoot reported the organization of Palmyra Ward, Nebo Stake, with Albert T. Money, bishop, and Thos. Halverson, 1st counselor. He said that while at Palmyra a heavy earthquake shock was experienced.
Apostle Clawson reported the ordaining by himself of four bishops at Oakley, Cassia Stake, during the conference last Sat. and Sunday, as follows: Hector C. Haight, bishop of Oakley 1st Ward; Rosel H. Hunter, bishop of Oakley 2nd Ward; Elam W. McBride, bishop of Oakley 3rd Ward; Adam S. Sagers, bishop of Basin Ward.
Apostle Smoot reported a recent visit to Moab W[ar]d when his attention was called to the condition of the Mons Petersen ranch, which is in bad shape and being neglected. The status of the case is this: the church advanced $4000 to save Brother Petersen, to save him from being sold out, the ranch to stand as security for the money, and Brother Petersen to pay it back within a reasonable time. This he has not done. It was decided, or rather the Presidency had given him until the end of the present year to settle, when, if it is not done, the property will be taken possession of by the trustee-in-trust.
Apostle Cowley reported his visit to Wasatch Stake Conference. Stake President [William H.] Smart is doing well, and the saints are pretty well united. Said that Brother Abram Hatch acknowledged the hand of the Lord in the change recently effected in that stake. Benediction by Apostle Jno. H. Smith. (2)
