Pres. Smith spoke strongly against the policy adopted by the town and county authorities, granting a right of way through Davis County along the county road. Said that the Presidency had called attention of the county commissioners to the folly of this and had counseled them against trifling away such a valuable right, but they have ignored the counsel. He wanted the visiting apostles to talk the matter up.
Elder Jas. G. Duffin, president of the S.W. States Mission, made brief report by letter of the mobbing of two elders in Van Buren County, Arkansas. He said that he was seeking redress from the governor of the state.
