    Raising Means

    After printing six numbers of the Signs, Elder White returned East, requesting the California Conference to make provision for the publication of the paper. At the General Conference, Aug. 15, 1874, a proposition was made to the Eastern brethren to raise $6,000 with which to purchase press, engine, and type for the Signs office, if the brethren on the Pacific Coast would raise $4,000 to secure a site and erect a suitable building for an office.GSAM 291.4

    Elder Geo. I. Butler, at that time a member of the General Conference Committee, attended the camp-meeting at Yountville, Cal., and presented the proposition to the brethren. On Oct. 11, 1874, they responded to the call by pledging the sum of $19,414 in coin.GSAM 292.1
