Mr. L. H. JELLIFF (Lethbridge) moved the second reading of Bill No. 11 to incorporate the President of the Lethbridge Stake.
He said: This bill, as the first clause indicates, is for the purpose of forming a corporation sole under the name and style of the President of the Lethbridge Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, generally known as the Mormon Church The territory of this church is divided into certain districts called "stakes", which correspond with the dioceses of other denominations. The posi-
tion of president of the stake corresponds very closely to that of a bishop in the other church denominations. The idea of the bill is to incorporate the president of the Lethbridge stake as a corporation sole in order that the properties of the church which are used for religious and charitable purposes, may be unified and administered to the better advantage of the organization. I would ask that the bill after receiving its second reading be referred to the select standing committee on Private Bills.
Motion agreed to and bill read the second time.
