, President. Elder David Matthews, who was suspended at a previous conference for unchristian conduct, was present. After hearing the D. Matthews tried testimony the Council unanimously agreed that there had been due contrition of Spirit manifested by him, in his walk and conversation, since his suspension, and Elder Matthews was restored. Elder Barkdall Barkdall vs Keeler both rebuked preferred a claim against elder Keeler for services said to be rendered some eight or nine years since, and to have been awarded by a former Council. It appeared there had been a decision in favor of elder Barkdall, but no testimony was produced by either of the parties, to substantiate a claim or prove a payment. It was therefore resolved that both the accuser and the accused have manifested a bad spirit, and deserve the severe rebuke of this Council. Elder Milo Hays was tried for not obeying the words of wisdom, and covenant breaking. Both charges were sustained by testimony, and Elder Hays was excluded from the church. several other cases of discipline were attended Sunday 7. to, and conference adjourned. at 12 o clock at night.
