The sixty-sixth annual conference of the Church convened in Salt Lake City; In voting for the general Church authorities, ... Moses Thatcher, was not upheld as one of the Twelve, because of his refusal to sign a manifesto issued by the general authorities of the Church to the Saints, in which the leading men of the Church were requested to seek counsel before accepting political offices which would interfere with their ecclesiastical duties.

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
