One of the most prominent and personally well-known men of his day, a counselor to thousands, a peripatetic traveler and intermittent visitor.

October 4, 1889, on reorganization of first presidency, with Anton H. Lund and Abraham H. Cannon, he was called to apostleship of the council of the twelve, succeeding the revered veteran Erastus Snow. In 1899, though a member of the council of the twelve to solve a difficult problem, he was appointed president of Cache stake, which office he held until the division of the stake in 1901. Member of the B. Y. College board for a number of years, 1896-1906; member of Agricultural College board nearly four years.
