I [p. 12] learned that at the fast meeting this day he voluntarily made full confession of his guilt and was excommunicated forgiven by the people and nearly all the people of that meeting shook hands with him after the close of the meeting.

Home.

My brother Wilford called at our home and we together went to the Special Priesthood meeting held in the Assembly room. At this meeting a copy of a letter by the First Presidency to be sent to all the presidencies of stakes was read. [p. 17]

This letter instructs all Stake Presidencies to notify all the people of the contents of the letter and to instruct the Bishops to deal with offenders of the rule of the church. President Smith made clear his attitude on the question. He said, “There is not a man in all Israel who is authorized to perform plural marriages. If any man shall say there is tell him he lies. The Lord has revealed that there is but one man at a time who has that authority. Any man who assumes that authority is a falsifyer and trying to injure me and the church and should you knock such an one down I shall not feel badly about it. Now is this clear? Do you see any loop hole? If so tell me. If there is any way to make it plainer I wish you would tell me how to do it.[”]

Pres Bluthe of North Weber Stake presidency asked if the letter with reference to dealing with people referred alike to those who contracted such relations before Apr 1904 & Oct. 1890 and those since Apr 1904. President Lund said the letter is clear that it refers to those who have violated the rule to which a penalty is affixed. The letter was indorsed unanimously [p. 18] by those present.

After meeting Pres. Lyman and I administered to Alma Larson at the former’s office. We as a council of Twelve decided to Summons Bro. [last name redacted] before us Wednestay next at 10 A.M. to show cause why he should not be excommunicated from the Church for marying a plural wife and performing plural marriages since the Declaration of Pres. Smith of 1904.

I attended Ensign Stake High Priests meeting in 18th Ward Amusement hall at 10 A.M. The speakers were in order as follows: Jos. E. Taylor on Current events, Pres. Seymour B. Young [p. 23] and my self. I occupied about 30 minutes with deliberation Read statement by Rev. Spaulding in Cincinatti Ohio that the Mormon church is the most perfect church on the earth &c. Spoke of the perfect order of the priesthood quorums. Likened them to the School system of education These High Priests are graduates. These should be skilled in the dividing of the word; in living the gospel law; in making known to others the joys of our religion having been brought up from child hood under these influences We know the effect to of the Gospel and being impressed we are better able to impress others. We are the Watchmen upon the towers of Zion The Lord is sending Israel here to us and he expects us to assist him. What are we doing to & for our nearest neighbors. In the church there are those who have symptoms of a deadly disease, their faith is weakening as evidenced by neglect of meetings, tithings & offerings. Shall we not treat the disease knowing as we do what it means to the patient. When the Dr discovers a sympt[o]m of a dreaded disease [p. 24] he loses no time in applying the necessary remedies.

We should do this by those inside the church and outside alike. 1st to wash our hands clean of the blood of this generation & second because of the love we have for our fellow men. Class distinctions should be broken down in the church. You who have plenty shake the hand of him who is scantily provided for. Inquire about his physical & Temporal conditions and administer unto his needs, then you have his heart and can teach & lead him as you High Priests well know how to do.

I walked home from the 18th ward house and found awaiting me, Bp. Bowd and counselors of [ward name redacted] ward and Bro.

Geo & Wife, LeGrand & wife called after the meeting and remained for an hour or more.

17 October 1910 • Monday

Home.

I spent most all day listing names of dead for baptism and endowments. Attended Ensign Stake Priesthood meeting in the evening and occupied about 20 minutes in conclusion. Subject. Regretted the necessity for excluding the the Deacons from these meetings. There being a number of Deacons here I desire to address my remarks to them especially as I may never have in this capacity another oppertunity. We are all children— [p. 26] these members of the Lesser Priesthood are little men. We grown ups are big boys. The difference being that we have largely formed our habits, moulded our dispositions and our characters. These are in course of development. All learn more or less from example. We irritate others (here told of trimming nails on street car and a lady & gentleman followed the example) These younger ones especially learn that way. It is good to form habits if only of the right kind. Here we have a model of a meeting and the boys who attend learn how to conduct themselves in meeting. Boys need the gospel influence in their lives. It becomes as a hedge or wall about them (Job) Boys not of the church have sufficient incentive to do good and sufficient to restrain them from wrong doing but these members of the Church and bearers of the Priesthood have double incentive, a two fold restraining influence. There are some things these boys can do as well as can their fathers. They can be honest, trustworthy, pure minded & genteel. I here told the story of German [p. 17] shepherd boy Gerhardt. The Junior mutual boys have been studying the biographies of great & good men. They should place their aim high. Have high aspirations and labor constantly & zealously to that end. If a boy smokes a sigarette it shows himself a weakling. The Evil one knows it, that he is shiftless a dont care sort of a fellow who can be led into most any kind of mischief. On the other hand when we deny our selves and resist the tempter after a while he passes us by. Suppose there to be a light fingered boy in the community, he is well known as such. People lock up all their belongings and if any thing should be missing it is laid upon that individual. On the other hand a person whose character is above reproach is never suspicioned & should he be charged with an offence, the public would refuse to believe it even if the circumstances pointed to his guilt and only would they believe it when it was proved beyond question.

I had good liberty and was thanked by several after meeting. May the Lord be praised for the insperation

After meeting I walked down [p. 18] with my son George to Eagle gate in a rain storm, each had an umbrella, where I took car for home. My daughter-in-law Ina was at our home and I accompanied her home in the Storm and spent about 20 minutes with her & LeGrand, had pie, grapes &c.
