Caleb West, Governor of Utah Territory, was the banquet speaker. Second annual meeting. Tuesday. January 22, 1895, Kenyon Hotel, Salt Lake City. E. G. Rognon, Payson Globe, elected president.

The conventioneers adjourned to The Sanitarium, a popular bathing resort, and, after the evening banquet, visited the Salt Lake Opera House. Third annual meeting. Tuesday.
