[George Q. Cannon]
I referred to the financial reports and stated that while we are quite willing that every President of Stake and every Bishop should have access to a report of his stake or of his ward, and the disposition made of the tithing from such stake or ward, it would nevertheless be unwise for us to expose our financial affairs in public conference to our enemies to take advantage of, and it was contemplated to have these reports read at a meeting of the Presidents of Stakes and Bishops. A vote was called as to whether such a method of exhibiting the financial reports would be satisfactory or not, and the Priesthood present voted that it would be.
