THE MORMON TEMPLE.
The site for the great Mormon temple,
dedicated yesterday, was selected July
16tb, 1847, the fifth day after the Mor
mons entered the great Salt Lake valley.
Brigham Yonng, viewing the then bar
ren site, struck his cane in the ground
in the presence of the apostles and said :
"Here will be the temple of our God."
Four years later, in 1861, at the confer
ence it was decided to build the temple
"of the best materials that can be ob
tained in North America." The mate
rial for the foundation was firestone
from a canyon four miles distant. The
granite for the walls was cut from Little
Cottonwood canyon, and prior to the
advent of a railway, in 1870, was hauled
by ox teams. February 6th, 1853,
ground was broken, and April 6th the
corner-stone was laid, 16 feet below the
surface. In 1858, when Johnston's
army came through, the foundations
were covered with earth. Four years
later work was resumed, and with the
exception of 1868 and 1869, when the
workmen of the territory were mostly
employed constructing the Union Pacific
road, continued without serious inter
ruption. The capstone was laid April
6th, 1892, and the date of dedication yes
terday, the 63d anniversary of the
organization of the Mormon church and
the 40th anniversary of the laying of the
temple's corner-stone. The building is
1863x99 feet in dimensions, and the
walls taper from 16 feet thick at the
foundation to 6 feet at the top. There
are six towers, three on each side, rang
ing from 194 to 222 feet high. The east
part of the temple is for the Melchisedec
priesthood, re presenting spiritual affairs ;
the west for the Aaronic priesthood,
dealing with temporal affairs. There
are in the building many stones sym
bolic of the different conditions of man
kind. At the base are earthstones, above
these moonstones, then sunstones, star
stones, cloudstones, etc. The architec
ture is without a known parallel in an
cient or modern times. There are four
doors, two on the east and two on the
west corners. The cost of the structure
was about $5,000,000. The building is
provided with all the modern appli
ances for lighting, heating, ventilating
and sanitation. It is looked upon as the
one described in the first two verses of
the fourth chapter of Micah. The ser
vices in the temple were as secret as a
Masonic lodge. The morning services
lasted till noon. In the meantime no
one came out, and no one except high
dignitaries of the church were admitted
after the services began.
Secretaries Gresbam and Carlisle are
looking into the reason for so great an
expense in connection with the Behring
sea arbitration commission, and we hope
if there has been any leakage they will
find it. It is beginning to look, says the
Register, as though the expense of set
tling this long drawn out question will
in the end amount to more than the
value of all the seals that will be left in
the sea after the dispute shall have been
The reason given by Mr. Cleveland
for not appointing the office holders who
served under his first administration is,
that he does not wish to establish or per
petuate an office-holding dynasty in the
United States. His reason for keeping
republican office-holders in until their
term expires is, that it stays the mad
rush for office at the beginning of each
administration and allows the places to
be filled decently and in order.
The Khan of Khelat, suspecting five of
his wives of infidelity, has put them to
death. The British agent of India at
Bombay has knocked off part of his 100,
000 rupees a year salary as a punish
ment, charging him 8,000 rupees a head
for the ones killed. He can kill six
more and then have 12,000 rupees left.

Paris, April 6. The bill to raise the
French legation in Washington to an
embassay was issued today. The pre
amble says :
"From the nature of our institutions
and the tie of mutual friendship, France
is in a peculiarly fortunate position to
respond to the proposals of the govern
ment of the people of the United States.
We, theiefore, shall not hesitate to give
the Great Amercan people proof of our
sympathy so soon as they raise the rank

VETERANS PASSING AWAY.
In Forty Years There Will Be Few Sur
vivors of the Civil War.
Interesting in connection with, the de
partment encampment is the report of
the medical director, Dr. J. R. Hayes,
in part as follows, says the Washington
"Our annual death rate equals 2.75
per cent, of the whole number in the
Grand Army Republic in this depart
ment. This is equivalent to death rate
of twenty-seven in a thousand, a larger
death rate than usually pertains to any
given number of people. Our band of
nearly 4,000 is being rapidly mustered
out, and if we apply the simple rules of
arithmetic, and provided that we re
cruit no more, in the year 1930 not one
of our 4,000 would be alive to tell the
story of the past.
"We are dying faster than any other
class of our population, because out of
the -' 000 in our organization more than
one-htlf are daily suffering from loss of
limbs, from wounds, injuries and disa
bilities contracted during the war. Re
sults of prison-life and the exposure and
deprivation incident thereto now cause
more suffering than the bullet. Loss of
a limb shortens the life, but the rheu
matism and scurvy contracted in prison
also yearly call for their premature vic
tims. Premature aging of all the or
gans, diminished vital resistance to all
disturbing causes, and more especially
diseases of the heart, now so alarming
ly present with many surviving com
rades, are mainly due to the rheuma
tism and scurvy of prison life.
"I have never seen a survivor from
the prison at Anderson ville, Ga., that
did not have disease of heart in some
form or other. So, taking our little
band of 4,000 to-day, in about forty
years all who have lost limbs or been
seriously wounded or suffered the hard
ships and horrors of prison life will
have passed away."
