Who Broke the Story of Custer’s Last Stand?

Not to be redundant, but who broke the story of Custer’s Last Stand?

A)     Time Magazine

B)     AP Press

C)     The Deseret News

D)     Deseret Telegraph Company

Yesterday’s answer:

(A)     Matthais F. Cowley

Following the Smoot hearings, two Apostles, John W. Taylor and Matthias F. Cowley, submitted their resignations from the Quorum of the Twelve. It was widely known that they had performed more than a few plural marriages after the Manifesto was issued. Their resignations from the Twelve did much to symbolize that plural marriage had indeed ended. Six years later John W. Taylor was excommunicated from the Church because he had married another plural wife after his resignation. Elder Cowley, although never reinstated as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve, remained faithful to the Church. In the 1930s he served a mission to England. One of his sons, Matthew Cowley, who had served as a mission president in New Zealand, was later called as an Apostle.
