for adjourning about May t, was sum

Mr. Watson said the president had sent
for him to say that he had overlooked the
fact that there would be a conference of
governors on Msy 13, and that when he
had called this conference he had done so
under the Impression that congress would
be In session. Out of courtesy to this con
ference, which will discuss the subject of
conserving the resources of the country,
especially the waterwaya and forests, the
president thought it would be better for
congress to remain In session for a few

HELENA, Mont., April 16. A -great body

is now pouring down the Missouri river.
The little village of Craig and Hauser lake
have been destroyed by the rushing waters
a dozen cabins at Oxbow, where another
dam is being constructed, have been swept
away, while numerous ranches have suf

miles of Grest Kails, where the Boston and
Montana smelter Is situated on the river
bank, but the hundreds of employes, work

plant from serious damage by the construc

JNtMnBNDBNCB. Mt., April 15. -(Spe
cial Belegranl. At the busineas Session of
the annual conference of the Reorganised
Church of Jetnis Christ of Latter Day
Balnts this afternoon, the matter Inter
rupted by adjournment of the session yes
terday was resumed, namely, discussion
of the resolution looking to the enforce
ment of the temporal law of the church,
which places the ministry not on a salary
or stipulation, but sends them Into tlje
ministry on the condition that the 'needs
of the family will be provided for. Two
motions to refer were before the bouse.
one to refer to the presidency an quorum
of twelve, quorum of -seventy snd bishop
ric, the other to refer to the first presi
dency, quorum of twelve and bishopric.
At the resumption of this question to
day the previous question was promptly
moved and a vote was taken, and all mo
tions looking toward referring this question
to the various quorums were voted down,
nd a motion to adopt the resolution was
carried by a small majority. Just when
thla resolution will be put Into effect and
how soon those who have charge q! the
financial assets of the church will comply
wtth this, and no minister shall be sent out
with a "family allowance" It is difficult to
say, as these men have not expressed an
opinion as to how soon It can be put Into
effect. It will mean a radical change In
the present arrangements, for, according to
present arrangements the ministers, while
they sre not What could be called properly
salaried ministers, do go out with the
promise that their famlllca shall receive at
least a certain amount per month, the
amount being determined by what is known
as the ministerial basis, which provides IIS
for the wife and W for each child or de
pendent per month, while the expensea of
the minister himself are met by donations
by friends or by calling upon the bishop or
Cash for Children's Home.
A report was read from the committee
on children's home, consisting of the bish
opric of the church and executive officers
of the Daughters of Zlon, which Is an or
ganization of women of the church. Indi
cated that more than 110.000 had been
raised for the Children's Home and that
the committee was open to receive propo
sitions for location, the indications being,
however, that the home will be located
either at . Lamonl, la., or Independence,
Mo., according to such propositions as
might be made by these places.
A report was resd from the council of
seven, presidents of seventy, recommending
the following for ordination as seventy:
Birtch Whiting of Wisconsin. L. G. Hol
loway of Iowa, George M. Shlppy of Mich
igan, Leonard Houghton of North Dakota,
J. B. Wildermuth of Wisconsin, D. E.
Dowker of Michigan, John Hay of Okla
homa. J. T. Hackett of Illinois, J. C.
Farnfleld of Ohl5, J. . W. Smith of Min
nesota. James E. Kelley of Iowa, Reese
Jenkins of Ohio. The recommendation for
their ordination was approved with the ex
ception of Birtch Whiting, which was de
ferred. as he was not ready yet to accept
the ordination. The seventy, ss they are
termed by the Latter Day Saints, are mis
sionaries who are subject to constant mis
sionary duty, and their lives are. devoted
to the missionary work, so the accepting of
the ordination means almost constantly be
ing away from home.
A recommendation was read from the
first presidency recommending ordination
as high' priests of Sydney Pitt of Iowa,
A. D. Angus of Pennsylvania, A. f. Mc
Lean of Canada, John D. Suttill of Provi
dence, R. I.; John A. Becker of Delolt, O.
M. C. Fisher of Boston and Samuel Harding
of Council Bluffs. These ordinations were
all approved and probably will be attended
to some time tomorrow, although A. D,
Angua waa ordained at. today'a session by
Apoatlea Gomert Griffltha and I'. W
Greene. Mr. Angua left for hia home to
night. . .
The name of Harry B. French of Colum
bus, O., was recommended for high priest
snd his ordination was recommended.
Rights of Presidency.
A resolution was Introduced from the
high priests relative to the right of the
presidency In district conferences. The
prlestsreoolutlon looked to the removal of
the right of one of the twelve apostles to
preside at district conferences. This sub
Ject, It was apparent, would provoke
lengthy discussion. A time limit of ten
minutes was put upon the speeches on the
subject and by a subsequent motion It was
deferred and made the special order for
the third day of the next annual confer
ence. Tonight In the auditorium of the church
Biahop El L. Kelley spoke on tJMr subject
of equality. Bishop Kelley is the first
financial officer of the church. Ills sermon
was listened to with the greatest attention,
as he is supposed to be authority on this
subject. His sermon Indicated that he is
a conservative and has a disposition to
make progress slowly, though It Is apparent
also that he holds the view in common
with many of those who might be termed
the radical ones, namely that there is ne
cessity for some radical changes to be
made in present conditions. E. L. Kelley
Is a resident of Independence, oaf. .
