[George Q. Cannon]
I afterwards brought before the council the name of President Lorenzo Snow as president of the Salt Lake Temple which was accepted unanimously. ... Considerable conversation was had in relation to the salaries of the officials, and I expressed myself very strongly as being dissatisfied with the tendency to fix salaries to the offices of the priesthood. I felt that this was a bad tendency. I should have protested more against it at the time that it was done had I not been in a position where I had no influence and where my remarks would not have availed anything. I said that I knew there would have to be a check upon this, or some of the evils which have grown up in the other churches would manifest themselves in our church. Before the adjournment of the Council, I suggested that we meet to-morrow in the Presidents Room of the Temple and cloth[e] ourselves in our priestly robes and pray in a circle. This was agreed to.
