Regulating the Rules

See the source image

As a Mormon on the Danish Rigstag, what law was Brother Fredrik Ferdinand Samuelsen able to regulate in favor of the LDS church in 1908?
a.                   Legalize polygamy
b.                   Stopped the taxing of tithing money
c.                   Made it so Mormon Elders could conduct LDS funerals
d.                   The LDS church could build its own chapels
Yesterday’s answer:
A   One Bishop called to preside over the entire stake
From the life of Erastus Bingham:   In the spring of 1851 he located on a parcel of land northwest of Farr’s Fort this new location was afterwards called Bingham’s Fort in his honor, but is now called Lynne. Brother Bingham continued as Bishop discharging his duties to the best of his ability, and to the satisfaction of the authorities of the Church until the fall of 1868, when all the Bishops of Weber county were released, except Chauncey W. West, who at the time was chosen Bishop of the whole Stake.
