[Anthony Ivins]

Semi-Annual Conference. ... Ben. E. Rich reported the Middle States Mission, or rather he preached a sermon on the subject of blood atonement, taking for his text the recent murder committed at N.Y. Had better talked on some other subject.

Apostle Hyrum M. Smith. The problem is not How may we make converts, but how can we keep them. We cannot compromise. There is no meeting the world half way. We will go all the way to teach the truth, but we cannot compromise the truth, they must accept the whole truth or none of it.

Prest. Smith announced that people would not be permitted to go out of the building while the services are in session. Persons must remain seated till the services are closed. ...

missionaries should be carefully made. No physical disability should impair the usefulness of any missionary. Rheumatism, Deafness, defective sight and other disabilities are sufficient to disqualify a man for a mission. ... Young men who are following out a course of study in a school or academy should not be interfeared with. Let them alone. ...
