Baptism For The Dead [from The Saints' Advocate vol. 3], 1880 (PDF)
see also The Saints' Advocate
Article discusses baptism for the dead. "It is not commonly known that President Young taught and administered baptism for the dead in a very different way than Joseph did, This he admits, in part, while at Nauvoo, after Joseph's death, as may be seen by consulting his sermons in the Times and Seasons. And it is not commonly known to Utah Saints that Joseph taught that baptism for the dead could be done properly, only by revelation; that is, that no living person should be baptized for a dead one unless there was a divine revelation through 'the man of God;' (to say that the dead one desired, and was prepared for, such proxy baptism; but such is the fact. Faith and repentance, must precede baptism; and how can it be known that any dead person has the requisite faith and repentance except it is revealed through legitimate channel, 'the man of God?'"

Spiritual Gifts And Spirit Manifestations, 1890 (PDF)
108 pages. Discusses spiritual gifts. He writes, "We are told that these gifts are done away, because 'no longer needed,' and that they were given anciently for the establishment of the church, and that Protestant, like Catholic religion is 'established' by the record of 'innumerable miracles and the lives and deaths of innumerable saints,' and not by the continual presence of Christ with the church, as represented by the spirit of truth, the only way by which he can be represented or saved from misrepresentation."
