[Apostle Heber J. Grant]
At ten there was a meeting of the Apostles in the Gardo House. Prayer by A.H. Cannon. Prest. Woodruff said that there had been an effort since the death of Prest. Taylor on the part of the Apostles to transfer all the financial affairs of the church to the Presiding Bishop and his counselors. Said that the proper place for the funds of the Church was to have them under the control of the Presidency and the Apostles. He made a number of remarks that would reflect on the action of the Salary Committee that had acted before the formation of the Presidency. He felt that we had now got the Cart before the horse and it was therefore hard shoving. He called on all that were present to express their feelings in the premises. Prest. Cannon said that in as much as he had not agreed with the brethren in their actions in financial matters at the death of Prest. Taylor that he would for the present be pleased to be excused from saying anything.
