President Snow requested the brethren, in their visits to the Stakes, to hold meetings with the Bishops and their counselors and the Stake Presidencies, and urge upon them the necessity of their taking up a private labor themselves with the non-tithe-payers of their several wards, and not leave such matters to the ward Teachers. It was suggested that a former action of the council was that this very thing should be done. ...Referring to the increased work of the ward clerks, President Cannon asked if it would not be a good plan to permit the presidents of Stakes to authorize the ward clerks to charge a fee of ten cents as a means of remuneration, since for the work they do they receive no compensation. Agreeable to this Elder Lyman moved that the clerks be permitted to charge ten cents for each recommend issued by him, either of removal or to the Temple. The motion was carried.
