[David O. McKay]
[During general conference] Pres[ident]. Joseph F. Smith presented the General Authorities of the Church. 'It is proposed that Joseph F. Smith be sustained as Prophet, Seer, and Revelator, and President of the Church; all in favor, please signify it'. Everybody, it seemed voted. 'Those opposed, signify it in the same manner.' At this moment, a man sitting about 12 benches from the front, arose and said, 'You cannot be a Prophet, Seer, and Revelator, while you are breaking the laws of the land'. Pres[ident]. Smith said, 'Sit down'. He continued to say something which I could not understand, and Pres[ident]. Smith being interrupted in the presentation of the authorities, said' 'Take care of that man.' Three brethren, Bro[ther]. Thomas Dobson, Bro[ther]. James Smith, and Bro[ther]. Salmon walked down to the man, and quietly escorted him out. He cried out something several times as he was going out, but I could not understand him. The meeting passed on without further interruption.
