Getting Tossed Overboard

While coming home from his mission, Brigham Young Jr. was almost thrown overboard from the ship he was sailing on, why?
a.                   He was stowing away since he could not get the money to pay the fair
b.                  A storm was ragging and one of the sailors on the ship attributed to Brigham being a Jonah
c.                   He would not denounce his religion
d.                  He was told not to proselyte on the ship and continued doing
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Ogden’s Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum
1902 Ogden Relief Society Building dedicated. By 1926, LDS Church President Heber J. Grant decided that the hall was no longer needed, and it was deeded to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers for the preservation of artifacts and histories of the pioneers. It was dedicated for this purpose by Apostle David O. McKay on September 30, 1926.
   During World War II, many young mothers in the area worked in war industries, and daycare centers were needed to care for preschool children. The federal government took over the building, as well as two other buildings in Ogden, for this purpose. Artifacts in the museum were put into storage until after the war when the building was returned to the DUP. During this time, the government added a basement and installed indoor plumbing which included a small kitchen and indoor bathroom. It was no longer necessary to use the well in the rear of the building or the outdoor toilet facility.
