[First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve minutes]
... [Heber J. Grant] brought up the subject of the vicious assaults made upon him recently by the Salt Lake Tribune, and wanted to know if there would be any objection to his denying in a public way these falsehoods and misrepresentations.

President Smith suggested to Brother Grant that instead of writing a letter of denial, that he permit himself to be interviewed, and make his denial in that way. ...

Salt Company meetings were held at the office this afternoon, the main purpose being to consider the buying up of the shore of the lake, with a view to controlling the salt trade. In order to do this the capital stock of the company would have to be increased, which would affect the Church to the amount of about $100,000. The matter was talked over by the First Presidency with Brother N[ephi]. W. Clayton, President Snow did not like to lose control of the company, but at the same time could not see how the Church could do anything in the matter. It was finally agreed to invite some of the wealthy men of the Church to take an interest in the company, thus retaining the control, as against the non-Mormon stock-holders.
