tempting to speak at the same time on dif
ferent occasions. At 10:45 Elder John W.
Rushton addressed the congregation, his
theme being "The Atonement of Christ."
He is a very pleasing and forceful speaker
and highly entertained his bearers. At J i

changes which hsvs taken place in th

We. your auditing committee, herewith
respectfully submit our reuort. We have
very carefully audited the bishops' reports
tor ivm ana iwi, comparing all original en
tries with the neceaarv vouchers, and
found none lacking, except a few Items for
pustage. We have carefully followed the
original entries through the books until In
corporated in the yearly reports. We think
it due the body that we should state the
condition of the books now In use in the
omce; we nnd the books simplified, com
prehenslve, posted to date and properly

We And in the hands of the different
state bishops notes and deeds to the valua
of 11.610. These are not yet recorded as
f srt of ths assets of the church. We think
t proper and advise that Ihev should b
put in the hands of the presiding bishop
and made a part of hla accounts, in harm
mony with articles IV, VI and VII of arti
cles of Incorporation. We find further that
the present accommodations of the bishop's
oftic-e are wholly inadequate to tha demand.
With only one little room to occupy, no
one can keep the work In proper shape. A
private oifloe for the blxhop and more room
for the bookkeepers are absolutely neces
sary. We therefore recommend that im
mediate measures be taken to supply these
