125 years ago today - Apr 7, 1896

Priesthood meeting. All salaries of Church officials was discontinued. This was done with full understanding with the leading authorities of the church. At 10 A.M. attended a special Priesthood meeting in the Assembly Hall. Some very plain talk was indulged in regarding the unfaithfulness of some of the brethren in blabbing every thing on the streets.

A resolution was also passed and voted unanimously upon that there be no more Church officials, that shall be salaried men. From now on, if they needed assistance it should be by appropriation on asking. Every effort to be used to support themselves.
