Dedication of the Site for the Temple at Logan.

Logan, May 18.

The ground site for the proposed Temple to be built at Logan was selected yesterday by the First Presidency and Twelve and surveyed by Elder Jesse W. Fox, who was assisted by James H. Martinean, the Architect Truman O. Angell, and others. The site is most beautifully situated on a piece of table land immediately east of the city, commanding a delightful view of the celebrated valley of Cache.

Today, at precisely twelve m. o’clock, the ground was broken at the south-east corner of the site. Elder Orson Pratt, kneeling near the broken ground and surrounded by several prominent elders and a large number of people, then offered the dedicatory prayer, after which remarks were made by President Young and Elder John Taylor.

Geo. F. Gibbs.
