Quorum of the Twelve accepts John Taylor's statement that it is "the mind of the Lord" for George Q. Cannon to forfeit the $25,000 bond and for that to be paid from the church mining revenues. This may be the date of the second revelation on Bullion, Beck, and Champion Mining Company, which George Q. Cannon describes to apostles on 27 Apr. 1899. Text is unavailable. Cannon skips his trial on 17 Mar. and forfeits bond.
