Daniel Spencer's Court

It was said that Daniel Spencer judgments were fair to the point that gentiles avoided the law of the land to be tried by the Church court that Daniel presided over. One time a bishop of the church incurred many $1000’s of dollars of debt from a Salt Lake banker. What was Daniels judgement in this affair?
a.                  He ruled on the side of the banker
b.                  He ruled on the side of the bishop
c.                   He sent the cause to the civil courts
d.                  He threw the case out for lack of evidence
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   140 railcars
Dominating the [Welfare] square is a concrete grain storage elevator capable of holding 140 carloads of wheat. This elevator was built early in World War II in just eight days as 640 volunteer workers mixed and poured concrete night and day. It is kept nearly full, a defense measure of the Church, since wheat stores easily and retains its full food value.
