From COMM 455 student Cassie O’Connor:

This article is a synopsis of JW’s writing in Hampton’s about the relationship between the Mormon Church and the Sugar Trust. From the article: The Utah-Idaho Sugar Company and the Amalgamated Sugar Company were “Mormon beet concerns.” In fact, Welliver wrote, “Joseph F. Smith [was] the president of the Utah-Idaho company…Prophet, seer, revelator, he is trustee-in- chief of temporal and spiritual affairs alike of the Church of JC of the LDS.”
