125 years ago today - Feb 10 1899

...Presiding Bishop [William B.] Preston ... presented the usual charity report, amounting to some $40,000.00, which is one-third less than the charity report of two years ago.

"Senator Frank J. Cannon spoke to a crowded house at the Theatre last night. ... He had been openly charged by the Woman's Republican Club with immoral conduct, and asked by resolution to resign his office. The Senator took this means of acknowledging his shortcomings and attacking those whom he termed his enemies, among them Elders John Henry Smith and Heber J. Grant. The scene was a sad spectacle to behold, and the anti-Mormon element appeared to be greatly entertained by the Senator's harangue."

[First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve minutes]
