The subject of building a Temple in Arizona for the benefit of the people in that region, was considered. It was represented that many of the Saints were unable to make a journey to the Temples in Utah, and it cost a great deal of money to those who could go. The proper order of marriage would be observed more strictly if a temple could be built in that part. It was suggested that one could be built at a cost of about $50,000. Brother John Henry Smith, who strongly favored the project, thought that a house suitable for all practical purposes, could be erected at a cost of not more than $10,000.
