The First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and Presiding Patriarch beginconsistently using "water and not wine" in their own sacrament. Joseph F. Smith personally stopped drinking wine at the temple meeting sacrament in Dec. 1902. When this first came up for discussion by the apostes on 7 Jan. 1903, Hyrum M. Smith criticized this practice. However, most apostles in 1903 preferred to continue using wine in the temple.
