  • Brigham Young has been preparing for his death by putting the Mormon Church in order and by preparing his property to be distributed among his surviving family. Young has also been preparing a dynasty by ordaining his three sons to be apostles. Joseph A. will not be the successor, because of his early death; Brigham, Jr., will not be the successor, because he lacks dignity and has made a fool of himself in Europe. John W. is the most likely successor; a description of John W. Wealthy businessmen and intellectuals will bring in a new phase of Mormonism. Young has reorganized the leadership of the Church to control the line of succession. Brigham Young has died of cholera morbus and inflammation of the bowels.
