120 years ago today - Thursday, Jun 6, 1901

Brother W. W. Cluff, former president, and Alma Eldredge, former counselor to W. W. C[luff]., had been using an influence against his successor in office, Brother Moses Taylor, which had somewhat divided the people, but matters were now steadily improving. The attitude of Brother Cluff when he said that the changes effected in the Summit Stake were not inspired of the Lord, and his efforts to defeat the action of the First Presidency and Twelve by trying to influence the saints not to vote for Moses Tylor, only confirmed the brethren in the view that the change was not only necessary, but imperative.
