Joseph F. Smith writes about the newly limited compensation for the apostles: "One man [probably John W. Young], for instance, who has drawn $16,000 per year from the tithing office for his support, has been cut down to 2,000 per year. Thus some of the leaks are plugged up and we hope to be able by and by to build the temple."
