First Counselor George Q. Cannon calls a meeting of a committee of apostles. "President Cannon stated that President Taylor's health was in such a precarious condition that he was utterly incapable of attending to business natters; and stated that it was necessary for us, as leading officials in the Church, to take such actions regarding financial and other matters as we considered for the best interest of the people, without consulting President Taylor. President Cannon referred to Brother John W. Taylor as to the condition of his father, Brother Taylor having recently paid him a visit, and he (Brother Taylor) endorsed the statement of President Cannon to the effect that President Taylor was utterly incapable of attending to business matters." Cannon asks for and receives $2000 from the Church to help the ailing OGDEN HERALD. Later, Moses Thatcher comments to Apostle Heber J. Grant that Cannon's transactions might need to be investigated later since, he claimed to have learned, they were not all "as straight as they might have been"
