Remarks, Pres. Jos. F. Smith. He expressed pleasure and satisfaction in being present and spoke in a very delightful strain upon the important subject of marriage and urged the bishops to see to it that the young people in their wards entered into these sacred relations. No man or woman could enter into a fullness of exaltation and glory outside of the marriage covenant. Spoke very strongly and forcibly upon the evil of indebtedness and counseled the bishops and counselors present who are financially involved to free themselves at the earliest possible moment from every such obligation. If you wish to get out of debt, pay your tithing. I prophesy that the man who will do this will be able to free himself sooner than he could otherwise do.
