The M. W. Grand Master delivered his annual address, as follows: Brelltren

of lite

M. W. Grand 0 of Missouri:

Another masonic year is about to close, and yet another about to open. We meet to congratulate each other over the successes, to weave the cypress wreath for the sorrows, and to throw the mantle of forgiveness over the errors of the one, and to bind hearts and hands together anew for the labors of the other. We meet for the first time in this noble Temple, about to be consecrated to the glorious traditions, and yet more glorious offices of Masonry. Let us thus early in our Annual Convocation seek to catch the spirit which speaks forth from these lofty walls and splendid decorations, telling of effort wisely put forth, of means wisely expended in behalf of the great principles which bind us together, and appl)' ourselves in the spirit of true and earnest brotherhood to the duties now before us. CO:-;DITIO~

OF

MASO~RY.

It gi"es me great plcasurt~ to announce to you that throughout the jurisdiction of this Grand D, so far as I have been able to learn, all is encouraging in the present and hopeful for the future. Within the Cf!:J masonic good will and zeal prevail, while the number 9f both CE!:J and members is rapidly increasing. Since our last Annual Convocation fortytwo dispensations have been granted for the opening of new Cf!:J. In every instance the petition has been endorsed and strongly recommended by trustworthy brethren. In a number of cases these new Cf!:J will supply

the places of those once in existence, but which, in common with so much else that was noble and beautiful in our land, were destroyed in the fierce conflict of arms. Thus does Freemasonry seek not only to soften the passions which war enkindled, but also to heal the wounds and hide the scars it leaves behind. VISITATIONS. Owing to the constant pressure of private business upon my time and attention, I have been able to visit only the Câ&#x201A;Ź:J at California, Sedalia, Warrensburg, Pleasant Hill and Kansas City. At each of these places, however, representatives from the various Câ&#x201A;Ź:J in the several counties were present. From these I was gratified to learn that harmony prevailed. By my request each D conferred the third degree, with the exception of that at Warrensburg, where I was persuaded to confer that degree, with the assistance of three of the members of my own D, who accompanied me, and at California, where the work was exemplified. At all of these places the work was creditable except at Pleasant Hill, and there the brethren have, as I have since been advised, greatly improved under the instruction of District Deputy Carter. I took occasion in this official visitation to say to the Masters of Cib that they must conform their work to that of the Grand D, and endeavored to impress upon them and their Wardens the importance of attending the l:E!J of instruction authorized by the last Grand D. In my judgment no plan has been devised which will more effectually secure uniformity of work than the system of l:E!J of instructiOll, presided over by the District Deputies. GRAND LECTURER AND WORK. I have a recommendation or two in this connection to submit to the Grand D: Let the work, as exemplified by the Grand Lecturer, be declared by your solemn resolve to be the work of this Grand Jurisdiction, and then require the sut-ordinatel:E!J to coniorm to it. Many members of the Fraternity, and some of them old and experienced ones, deny that the work of the Grand Lecturer is the work adopted by the Grand D, and the same as that known as the work of the Baltimore Convention j but assume that though the Grand 0 has adopted the Baltimore Convention work, yet this has been subsequently changed by our Grand Lecturers. The endorsement suggested will settle this controversy finally. And, again, I would suggest that every District Deputy who shall receive an appointment, or be reappointed hereafter, shall be strictly and thoroughly examined as to his proficiency by the Grand Lecturer before he is commissioned.

INCREASE OF MASONIC DISTRICTS. I would also fraternally recommend an increase in the number of masonic districts. These are so large that it is exceedingly inconvenient in most of them for the District Deputies to visit them, and for the officers to meet at the Citl of instruction. Increase the nnmber and so arrange the districts as to make it easy for the Deputies to visit their Citl, and the officers to meet at the ceJ of instruction, and you will have accomplished, in my opinion, a great deal toward perfecting the work and making it uniform throughout the State. R. W. Bro. Archibald Long having resigned on account of pressing private business, which would prevent his attending to that and his official duties, I appointed and commissioned R. W. A. McDowell D. D. G. M. of the Fourteenth Masonic District. R. W. Bro. Samuel H. Owens having removed from the State, not to return until after the close of the present masonic year, I appointed and commissioned R. W. James E. Carter D. D. G. M. of the Twelfth Masonic District. REAL ESTATE. On the 14th of March I executed a deed to the trustees of Sedalia 0, in conformity with a resolution of the last Grand D. On the 24th of the same month I drew my warrant on the Grand Treasurer, payable on the 15th of October, 1868, for $5,000, being the balance due the Masonic Hall Association for stock subscribed by the Grand D. CORNER STONE. On the 6th of July I empowered Bro. H. C. Cockerill to open a Grand

o for the purpose of laying the corner stone of Pritchett School Institute, in Gla~gow; and on the '9th of the same month I gave the same authority to R. W. Bro. Jno. W. Baldwin to lay the corner stone of a seminary at Poplar Bluff. SUSPENSION FROM OFFICE. On the 17th ofJuly, for good and sufficient reasons, which will be flied herewith, I suspended from office Bro. Charles Gloyd, Worshipful Master of Holden D, U. D. In the latter part of September I suspended from office Bro. Henry Neill, Worshipful Master of Warrensburg D, No. 135, and cited him to appear at this communication of the Grand D to answer charges preferred against him, which are filed herewith. SPECIAL ELECTION. On the 18th of July I issued a dispensation to Arrow Rock

D

to elect a

[Oct.

Secretary, the brother elected at the regular election refusing to be installed. On the 26th of the same month I issued a dispensation to Fulton [J to elect a \Vorshipful Master, the Master elected refusing to serve. DECISIONS. Many questions have been submitted, upon which decisions were readily made by a reference to the By-Laws, and it is deemed unnecessary to mention them in this address. I have decided some interesting questions, however, which will require the confirmation of the Grand D, and I will proceed to state them:

It is competent for a D to restore an expelled member if no appeal has been taken to the Grand D; provided, the action is had at a regular meeting which all the members are notified to attend. Any member of a D has the right to object to a degree being conferred upon an elected candidate at any time previous to his introduction into the D, and the Master is bound to respect his objection; nor can the degree be conferred until said objection be withdrawn. A District Deputy has not the power conferred upon him by the ByLaws to convene a Grand D for any purpose whatever without the authority of the Grand Master. A. D has the right to discipline a member for an unmasonic offense committed previous to his initiation. When he petitioned the D for initiation, if he had been guilty of a crime which the im'estigating committee failed to ascertain, he practiced a fraud upon the Fraternity in presuming to make his applic,\tion for the degrees, and for this fraud, as well as for the offense itself, he is certainly amenable to his D. I am aware that a different ruling prevails in some other jurisdictions, but my decision seems to be in full accordance with the spirit and object of our Institution.

It is competent for the Lodge where he was initiated, when an Entered Apprentice has removed, or contemplates removing, within another jurisdiction, to grant him a certificate that he was regularly initiated therein, and is at the time in good standing as such; provided it is done by an unanimous vote, and that vote must be taken by ballot if any member desire it. The same rule will apply to the case of a Fellow Craft. A member suspended for a definite time for the non-payment of dues is not discharged therefrom upon its expiration, but is liable to be suspended again for the same amount for which he was originally suspended if he fail to liquidate it. The by-law in regard to suspensions is not construed a:ike in all Cfb. In some, members are suspended until their dues are paid, and in others for months or years, reaching a period in some


1868.J

instances of twenty-five or thirty years. It would seem that it would be proper for this Grand 0 to place such a construction on the law as would justify all Câ&#x201A;Ź::J in simply suspending delinquent members until their dues are paid. A 0 under dispensation has not the power conferred upon it by our By-Laws to arraign and discipline non-affiliates i this is vested only in chartered Câ&#x201A;Ź::J. When the Master of a 0 declares a candidate rejected upon the first ballot it is to be presumed that he has done so in conformity with the law, and he can not be compelled by any member to state the number of rejecting ballots. A non-affiliated Mason Clln not prefer charges against a member .of a This decision was made in a case from Kingston D, No. 118. The history of the case is as follows: A brother non-affiliated presented his petition for membership, which was refared to a committee; one of the committee was dissatisfied with the answers to some questions asked the petitioner, and advised him that unless they were explained he was unwilling to report favorably upon his application. This was refused. The petitioner preferred charges against tlte member, who was Junior Deacon of the D, and the Master removed the member from his office-from his position on the committee-and refused to permit him to vote when the petition was balloted for. On obtaining a certified copy of the proceedings and a statement of the Master, in which the above facts appear, I issued an order directing the Master of Kingston D to set aside all the proceedings of the D whereby the member's rights were affected, and to place all the parties thereto in the same situation they occupied previous to the presentation of the charge by the non-affiliated brother, which order, I was subsequently informed by the Master, was strictly complied with. I became satisfied that the error of the Master was in being badly advised, and that he did not design injuring the member intentionally, and hence I did not deem it necessary to do anything further in the premises. The papers in connection with this case are herewith submitted. D.

It does not lie in the power of the Grand Master to interfere in cases after trial is had in subordinate Câ&#x201A;Ź::J. Appeals must be taken to the Grand D, and not to the Grand Master.

The District Deputies are officers created by the Grand 0 B.y-Laws; their duties are specifically defined therein, and they are to be gO\'erned thereby. Instruction in the ritual and examination of the records is their province, and in the discharge of their duties they must have the heart)' co-operation of every officer of a O. The Master is accountable for the action of his D. He is the responsible party to the Grand D or the


If

[Oct.

Grand Master. If he fail to perform his whole duty, he may be suspended from his office; if he do it, and the 0 refuse to support him, its charter should be arrested. I have held, in a case submitted to me, that a District Deputy has not the power conferred upon him by our laws to require the Master to allow himself, or the Grand Lecturer, to confer a degree upon a candidate, or to designate the members who should fill the several stations when the degree was to be conferred. A member of one 0 has no right to prohibit the initiation of a candidate into another. He may submit his objections to the Master, the committee, or any member, and it is for either to determine whether they are sufficient. Vacancies in any of the elective offices of a 0 must be filled by pro tem. appointment for the remainder of the term. Non-affiliates, who have remained such twelve months, are deprived of all masonic benefits, including masonic burial. This is the law which I had occasion to refer to several times during the last year. It is a harsh law, and works oppressively in many instances; for how frequently is it the case that petty spite or political prejudice will induce members of the Order to prohibit a brother from affiliating. A better rule, in my humble judgment, would be to require C2J to compel non-affiliates to apply for membership, and if they refuse to do so, suspend or expel them legally and lawfully. A 0 has the right to remove its residence from one building to another, in the same town or city (without permis~ion from the Grand ~Ia~t~r), and by its own vote. The Master can not prohibit th<' r~mO\'al; prod'it'd, always, that the proposed new hall is altogether al'prol'riat~ and suit:lble. A brother receiving the Master's degree in a::J n:'lu~"ted to ,~ont<:r it is a member of the 0 from which the request cil1lll'. It is au ad of courtesy, and the fee belongs to the 0 making th~ apl'li,'ation. It is improper and inexpedient for a 0 to try a member for a ~rime while the same is undergoing investigation in the courts of the country. Being advised that a trial was about to be had in Lincoln 0, 138, against a brother who was indicted by the Circuit Court of Andrew county, I issued nn order to the Master of that 0 to postpone the trial until afkr the termination of the case in the court. Ever)' man is presumed, by the criminal law, to be innocent until his guilt is pro\路en. This, in my opinion, should be equally good masonic law. The accused is entitled to our sympathies until his guilt is established, and it would be manifestly unjust and improper to permit a 0 to do any thing which might have a tendency to prejudice the case of a member of the Fraternity with a jury of his country, as a trial in a 0 would, either one way or another.

The 8th section of Art XV of the By-Laws of the Grand D requires the election of Masters and Wardens of newly chartered Cib, as well as other elective officers, before work can be done therein. The Grand Master has no authority under our By-Laws to issue a dispensation for the election of a Master of a D who has not previously served as such, or a term as Warden of a D. Such a procedure would be in contravention of the Old Charges, which emphatically declare that" no brother can be a Master until he has ac.ted as a Warden." A Master Mason, made in an army D, subsequently affiliated with a regular D, dimitted therefrom, and applied for membership in a D in this Grand Jurisdiction. I decided in this case that a Master Mason presenting a dimit from a regular D with which this Grand D is in fraternal communication must be treated as though he were made a Mason in a regular D; but that a Mason hailing from an army D, and deRiring to affiliate, must, under our law, take the same steps as a profane, and pay the regular fees. COMMITTEE ON JURISPRUDENCE. I am convinced that it would be beneficial to the Craft if this Grand Body would, at an early period of its present communication, authorize the appointment of a Committee on Masonic Jurisprudence, to whom all decisions of the Grand Master, made in vacation of the Grand D, as well as points in dispute that may arise during its session, should be referred, and who should be required to report the same to the Grand D for its final decision previous to its close, in order that the judgment of the Grand D on the several questions submitted to the committee may be printed with the proceedings. This plan, if adopted, will relie\'e the Grand Master of a great deal of unnecessary labor, and the information furnished to the Masters of subordinate Cib will be of incalculable benefit to them. REPORTS OF D. D. GRAND MASTERS. Reports from the District Deputies of the following Districts only have been received, viz.: the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 14th. The law requires these reports to be forwarded to the Grand Master thirty days prior to the meeting of the Grand D, and it should be strictly complied with, as much useful material may be gathered therefrom to present to the Grand D. Nothing has occurred during the year to disturb the kindly relations existing with other jurisdictions. All is peace and good will.

CONCLUSION. Having thus given, briefly, a history of my official acts and decisions, allow me, before concluding this annual address, to bring two other topics to your attention, and, through you, to the attention of the brethren throughout our jurisdiction. Our country is now passing through one of the most terrible ordeals to which a nation can be sUbjected. But just escaped from the terrible devastations, and the still more terrible passions engendered by civil strife. it is even now distracted by party hate and violence to an extent not dreamed of in the former years of peace. Under the maddening influence of political excitement, old enmities, which.ought long ago to have been buried, are revived, and new ones called into existence. Brethren, with these things we, as Masons, have nothing to do; and it is our duty, within our Cfu and among the members of the Fraternity, to keep aloof from all such dissensions. It is but reasonable to suppose that there will be differences of opinion among us on these exciting topics; yet these differences must not be allowed to interfere with the high and holy obligations which we have taken upon ourselves. To become Masons we did not surrender our principles, either social, political or religious; yet to he Masons, "in deed and in truth," we must follow the sublime teachings of that Book we are all taught to revere, and" love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous, not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing; but, contrariwif>e, blessing, knowing that we are hereunto called that we may inherit a blessing." That blessing we have inherited through all the past ages; and while empires and nations have risen and fallen, while wars have desolated the earth, while Churches have been rent asunder, our Order has kept the even tenor of its way, because it banished from its sacred precincts the hatred and bitterness of partisan strite. It was the glory of Masonry during the late unhappy war that it robbed numberless battle-fields of some of their most repulsive features; and many a soldier and many a prisoner was made glad by the kindness of those with whom he had just been engaged in the deadly strife, but to whom he was still united by the mystic tie, which sword and cannon could not break; many a distant home was cheered in the midst of its deep agonies by the fact that the loved one in his last hours was cared for and his body decently buried by those who knew and felt the sacred ties of brotherhood. Let not this high glory be tarnished, now that the conflict in the field has ceased and another has begun in the walks of social and political life. The motto upon our seal tells the secret of our Order's success and the true spirit of Masonic Institutions-" Union and Brotherly Lo\路e." In the late meeting of distinguished Masons in this city, in the friendly intercourse then enjoyed and the kind offices then interchanged, our Institution has demonstrated to all that men from every


GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI.

1868.J

part of our common country, and perhaps of every shade of sentiment, could meet and" love as brethren," could give and receive the noble charities of noble souls. Let the same spirit animate every Mason j and, as in the past, so in the future, " storms may not wreck nor seas devour" the time路honored institutions of the Order. The other subject to which I alluded is, the attempt in some localities to revive the old warfare against Masonry. Certain parties, and even certain religious denol1linations, have seen fit to array themselves against our beloved Institution, as dangerous to the well路being of society and subversive of religion. Why such charges should ever have been made, or why they should now be revived, I can not imagine, unless it be to subserve personal selfish ends. Masonry teaches its members to be true to all their obligations as men. It does not array itself against religion, nor even claim a position of equality with it, but is content to be as a handmaid to it in ministering to purposes of human benefaction. But I have called your attention to this ~ubject simply to say that when thus attacked and slandered without cause, it does not become us as Masons to return "railing for railing," but rather, by doing our duty, by keeping our Order free from all unworthy intruders, by guarding well our own and each other's characters and conduct, to " put to silence the ignorance of foolish men." And now, my brethren, in giving back to you the office whose cares and responsibilities were at first reluctantly assumed, permit me to declare my determination to decline a re-election. Grateful for the honors which your partiality conferred, I retire, with the humble prarer that Heaven may ever bestow its richest blessings upon this Grand 0, upon you its members and the t:Eb you represent, and upon this most Ancient Order of " Free and Accepted Masons" wherever found.

previously. The vault has been completed under the supervision of the committee appointed by your Order in 1865, and, for the first time in the history of the Grand 0, its ,-aluable archives are safe from conflagration. The incidental expenses of locating in the new office have been met, for which vouchers will be presented to Jour Auditing Committee. There have been filed in my office appeals of sundry brethren from the of their ({!J, which will be handed to the appropriate Committee; also, petitions for dispensations for new Cf!::J, together with new by-laws adopted by various chartered Cf!::J. deci~ion

I h.we also received the application of the M:. W. Grand 0 of New Brunswick for the recognition of this Grand 0, which, as your Committee on Foreign Correspondence, I would fraternally recommend its adoption. The Grand 0 library I have carefully indexed, and in catalogue, for reference, and have been able to add several volumes since last report. In pursuance of your order, I made out accounts against all parties owing the Grand 0 on College certificates, and sent to each 0 and individual to whom the Grand 0 was indebted certificates of indebtedness. I hon-e collected from [€::J $157 72, and from the Secretary of Endowment Fund Commissioners $300 in cash, and a returned certificate for $450. In my correspondence with Masonic bodies, and by examination of records of some of them in this city, I find that the report of last session did not gh-e full credit for all moneys due them, and it will be almost impossible to collect any more money until that report is revised and corrected. The books of the College must have been imperfectly kept, not to have credited CftJ, Chapters, etc., with money paid, as I find many of those credits in the published proceedings, as well as in the ledger of the Grand 0, and I would recommend that the report on College certificates be recommitted, with authority to use the ledger of the Grand 0, and to call on all Cf!::J for evidence of all money they have paid in, for until the correction is made, the [€::J will not pay so long as their books show them entitled to a credit. Owing to the large increase of [€::J and members, the publication of the names of indh'idual members has become an item of immense expense to the Grand 0, and in order to avoid this, without entirely dispensing with the benefit deri,'ed from a catalogue, I would suggest to the Grand 0 that R full list be published periodically-say once in three or five years, and during the other Jears, that only the names of those who have been added to membership, by raising or affiliation, and those who have lost memben,hip by death, suspension, expulsion, or dimission. Such Il catalog-ue, with the preservation of the last full one published, will answer all practical purposes for reference.

To tke Grand 0

of Missouri:

Your Committee to whom was referred the Grand Master's Address respectfully report: That the short time allotted us necessarily precludes a full investigation of all the points in the address, most of which are of interest to the Fraternity, and some of very great importance, yet we have endeavored to so divide the matters referred to, as to place in much more competent hands all the more important topics submitted by the Grand Master. 'Ye concur most fully with our Most 'Yorshipful Grand Master in his statements about our new Temple which we now occupy, a building which we, as Masons and Missourians, feel proud of, and which we think should, and which, we believe, soon will, belong to the Masonic Grand Bodies of the State. We fully and cordially concur with the Grand Master in the pleasure wherein he states that within all Ottr ~, "Masonic good will and zeal prevail, and that all is encouraging in the past, and hopeful in the future." \Ve regret that life's great duties-which, as we charge each apprentice, are by no means to be interfered with by "Masonry-has kept our Grand Master from more extensive visiting of the "arious ::frJ; yet we teel sure that where he did go, all that was done was good work and square. "'e mo~t fully concur with his recommendation of C{b of instruction, and reeomlllcnd to the Grand 0 to adopt somc plan of the kind. lIfen must work in the quarry before they call fit stones to pass inspection, or be master workmen, competent to try the block, and sec if it is >qllare and fitted for its place.

We most heartily concur with our Grand Master in his suggestion in regard to the qualifications of District Deputies; they should be fully qualified and competent; for if the blind lead the blind, hoth may falI in the ditch. So far as the address refers to 0 matters, work, reports of D. D. G. Masters, etc., we recommend that it be referred to the Committee on Chartered Câ&#x201A;Ź::J, and the matters in regard to suspensions, etc., to the Committee on Grievances. Having been heretofore, by the partiality of the Grand 0, placed in a position wherein we have experienced the difficulties referred to by our Grand Master, we fully concur with him, and earnestly recommend to the Grand 0 the appointment of a Committee of c:Jllrt.<jrudenee. The system works well in other States, and would save the Grand Master from much painful, and, frequently, needless perplexities. Believing that we have performed, so far as time would admit, the duties required of us, and wishing that your work may be acceptable to our Great Master, and that he may say to each and everyone of you, "Come up higher," we fraternally submit our report.

tain the college at Lexington, and expressed its desire, and set forth the tenns upon which it would donate it to the State, and three commissioners were appointed to make the proposition to the Legislature at its next session. At the Annual Communication in 1861, the commissioners reported that the Legislature, by enactment, had accepted the proposition upon the tenns proposed, and the Grand Master was instructed to execute p deed to the State of Missouri, embracing the tenns and conditions se forth in the resolution adopted in 1860.

Houston,- and dated May IS, 1866, and contains this important provision, which is the same as contained in the resolution of 1860, and the same as contained in the act of the Legislature accepting the donation:

Provldcd, however, and this conveyance is made upon this express condition, that the said party of the second part shall establish and support forever a first-class Military or -Normal School, or other Literary Institution, upon the grounds above described and conveyed, as provided by the General Assembly of the State, in an act entitled "An act to establish a Military Institute," approved the 13th day of May,. 1861, as mentioned above, and upon the failure of the said party of the second part to comply with the conditions of the donation, as provided by the said party of the first part in its resolutions as above, and contained in the said act, all right acquired by the said part.r of the second part under this deed shall be forfeited, and the said premises and personal property revert to the said party of the first part, free from all possession, claim and control of the said party of the second part, or other power or powers, associations, bodies politic or persons whatsoever. During the war, no school was kept in the college. The college and boarding-house attached to it were oftert occupied by troops of both parties, and both buildings were greatly injured. At the battle of Lexington the cannonading, which lasted three _days, was severe, and damaged the college building to such an extent that about one-half of the eastern wall soon afterward fell to the ground, and the inside finish was either injured or destroyed. The boarding-house was also seriously injured, and at the close of the war scarcely anything was left but-the walls and roof. The college has been partly repaired by the State. A school was opened in it, under the direction of the trustees appointed by the State, in September, 1866, and was kept up for two years. The scholars were boys and girls from ten to sixteen years of age, and were only taught the ordinary branches of an English education, and did not average during the term o~'er eighteen in number at any session of the school.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

[Oct.

In the spring and summer of 1868, preparations were made to open a school of a higher order. A Faculty was elected by the Board of Trustees, consisting of a president and two professors, and a course of studies adopted (a copy of which is herewith filed). The collegiate session opened the first Monday in September, and the largest number of students in attendance to the first of the present month was about thirty. The Legislature, in the act of 1861 accepting the college, appropriated $3,000 annually for ten years. None of it was drawn until 1866. The Board of Trustees aloe not certain that the five preceding installments can ever be drawn. Three installments have been drawn, amounting to $9,000, and have been expended, as 1011ows-: Fencing and repairing of college building ..••••••••.. $6,288 To superintendent of building and school............. 1,991 Balance in hands of the treasurer...... .•.••••••••••• 721

00 00 00

No repairs have as yet been made upon the boarding-house. It stands now as it did at the close of the war-floorless, sashless, doorless and almost roofless, -n striking monument of the destructive ravages of war, and of the total indifference of the State. When the college was first established at Lexington, the Grand 0, by accepting the generous subscriptions of the citizens then, incurred obligations to sustain the college that could not be lightly shaken off. It was under pledge to them to keep up and sustain a first-class institution of learning.

The Grand 0 endeavored, in t~e transfer to the State, to bind it to carry out in good faith this obligation, which had been transferred to the State. Your committee are constrained to conclude that the State is not complying with the conditions of the donation. It has not established, nor is it now supporting, a " First-class Military or Normal School, or other Literary Institution," as it is bound by the terms of the deed to do.

At the time of the transfer of the college property it was valued at - - - - - . This munificent present was made to the State with the hope and expectation that it would establish and support an institution of learning there that would uot only satisfy the citizens of that locality, but one that would dispense its benefits and blessings throughout the State.

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI.

It was believed that from its location-in the centre of one of the most producth'e and wealthy portions of the West, and under the fostering care of the State, which has manifested so much interest in the subject of education-that it would soon become one of the most important institutions of learning in the 'Vest. This hope has not as yet been realized. 'Ve therefore conclude that some steps should be taken to call the attention of the Legislature to the subject, and recommend the adoption of the following resolution:

Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed to attend the next session of the Legislature, and urge upon it the importance of complying with the conditions upon which the State accepted the donation of the College property at Lexington, and report at the next Annual Communication of this Grand 0; WM. E. DUNSCOMB, S. H. SAUNDERS, ROBT. HALE.

To the M. W.

The Committee on Grievance beg lea\-e to make the following report: In the case of Bro. Henry Neal, 'V. M. of Warrensburg D, No. 135, who was suspended from his office by the M. W. Grand Master for striking a brother Master Mason, and a member of his D, your committee can not condemn the act of Bro. Neal too severely; but must, in justice to Bro. Neal, sa,', that if there are any extenuating circumstances under which a Mason can be placed to palliate the offense, Bro. Neal certainly had and should receive the benefit of them. Bro. Neal having appeared before Jour committee, and expressed his hearty regrets for the occurrence, and regarding his suspension as sufficient punishment under the extenuating circumstances of the case, Jour committee recommend that he be restored to his position. But while condemning his course, we regard the conduct of Bro. Baldwin, in covertly attacking the moral and social character of Bro. Neal as grossly unmasonic, and endorse the order of the Grand Master, that his D prefer charges, and deal with Bro. Baldwin. Your committee would furthermore state that Warrensburg D, No. 135, acted contrary to a well-established law of Masonry, by appointing a committee to prepare charges against its Master, to be tried by his D.

Your committee would recommend the rejection of the by·laws of the following [£], viz.: Warren 0, No. 74; Oregon 0, No. 139; Bloomfield 0, No. I.'3-for the reason that they do not conform to the By-Laws of the Grand 0, and contain sections and parts of sections of foreign and improper matter, some of which are in open and direct contravention of both the usages and laws of Masonry. In view of the fact of the great diversit.v of matter introduced into the by-laws of subordinate 1£:J. and the immense amount of labor annually required of the Committee on Chartered Cfb, your committ",e would r",commend the adoption of the following resolution, viz: Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed by the Grand Master, whose duty it shall be to draft a code of by-laws for the use and government of ~ubordinate [fb, and report at ollr next annual communication; and when the same are adopted by this Grand 0, they shall become the by-laws of every subordinate in this Grand Jurisdiction.

f?f tke State of lIf,:.sourt':

Your Committee on Griel'ance beg leave to report that they have given that consideration to all the cases submitted to them which the limited time allowed them would afford, and beg leave to report: That as to the question of jurisdiction between Evening Star 0 and St. James 0, your committee regard the principle as well settled. that the geographical jurisdiction of the D, which extends in every direction half way to the nearest D, should govern. Besides, Sec. 6, Art. XVI of our By-Laws requires that a candidate should petition the 0 nearest his place of residence, unless he obtain consent of that D to join another. The proof submitted shows that the candidate lived one and one-half miles nearer Evening Star 0, Your committee, therefore, decide that Evening Star D had jurisdiction in the case. In case of Bro. J. H. Scott's appeal from the action of Evening Star 0, No. 94, A. F. and A. M., in expelling him, the record shows that at the special communication of the 0 at which accused was summoned to appear, held after the had reechoed and entertained the charges, "The cause was summarily d,:.mlssed by the 'V. M." Such action your committee regard as exceeding the prerogatives of the Mastcr. After charges ha\'e been filed and received by the 0, the D alone can dispose of them, and the W. M. has no right to dictate as to what course shall be pursued. This, however, properly forms no part of the record in this case, as new charges were afterwards filed, and a new trial ordered, from the result of which the appea.l is ta.ken.

In this case your committee regard the charges and specifications as, in thc main, too \'ague and indefinite. To a refined brother, charges before his D, invol\'ing his honor or character as a Master Mason. are as important and serious, if not more so, than though he was arrlligned before the conrts of his country, lind his life or liberty im路oh'ed. The charg-cs and specifications, therefore, shonld be such as to fnIl,y a(h'ise the brother of what he has to meet, and gi\'e him e\'cry opportunity to clelil' himself. For instance. a specification under a charge of "Gross unmasonic conduct," that" Bro. A. B. has, in seyeral cases, failed to meet his promises gi'"en to 1\Iast<:r Masons," &c., should ha\'e gh'en the time, place, names of the !lIaster l\fa.sons, and the nature of the promises. In this case there were t\l'O charges, and three specifications unde,' each charge. The vote of the 0 was taken upon all the charges and specifications at once. This your committee regard as an errol'. The votc should have been taken upon each ,pecification, then upon the charge, separately, ...nil the result rccorded. The reqnest of the accused to have his trial postponed, on acconl1t of


PROCEEDINGS OF THE

[Oct.

the ~ickne's of his family, should have been granted. We, therefore, recommend that the case be referred back to the 0 for another hearing. In ca路'le of Bro. Biggerstaff, member of Stewartsdlle 0, No. ,82, Jour committee endorse the decision of the M. W. Grand Master upon the state of fact,; presented to him; but the fact that Bro. B. was one of the petitioners to the Grand 0 for a restoration of the charter, was not before the M. \\7. Grand Master. That fact, we think, constituted him a member of the o. In the case of L. H. Weatherby, an expelled Mason, your committee endorse the opinion of the M. 'V. Grand Master, that where a brother has been expelled by his 0, and no appeal路taken to this Grand 0, we have no jurisdiction in the matter. The 0, by a unanimous \'ote of its member.s. at a meeting where all have been summoned, may restore an expelled member without the action of the Grand 0, unless the Grand 0 has confirmed the action of the 0 all appeal. In the case of 1\1... P. Baker's appeal from Centralia 0, No. 59. he having had t\\-O hearings and been twice expelled, j'our committee recommend that the action of the 0 expelling him be confirmed. In the case of J. B. Dunn's appeal from Maryville 0, No. ,6S, Jour committee recommend that the action of the 0 expelling him be confirmed. In the case of Bro. F. W. Diggs' appeal from Livingston 0, No. 51, your committee regard the proceedings of the 0 as irregular and unauthorized. No charges ,,-ere preferred; no notice gh'en; no trial had. A o can not try a brother upon a report of a Committee on Grievance. without the requisites of the law regulating Masonic trials be complied with. Thcn; is nothing in this case to appeal from, and your committee recommend that the appeal be dismissed. In the ca"c of Bro. A. G. Fullington's appeal from Florence there is no record of the evidence, or of the finding of the D.

In the cu"e of J. n. \Vright's appeal from \Ve,ton 0, No. 53. there is no e\路idcnce on record of the proceedings of the D. In the ca"c of 'V. V.

Jour committee recommend that the decision of the :'II. "'.

In the case of Bro. F. Thias' appeal from Pride of the 'West 0, No. 179, Jour committee find that he was heretofore expelled by his 0, and upon an appeal to this Grand 0, at its last communication, the case was sent back upon the ground that the penalty was too severe. The'O then suspended him for five years. Your committee feel unwilling to disturb the verdict of the 0 under these circumstances, except for gross error, which we do not find, and therefore recommend that the action of the 0 be confinned. In the case of Bro. the evidence filed does sentence of expulsion, b~ referred back to the

E. P. Diehl's appeal from Constantine 0, No. 129, not show proof conclusive enough to warrant the and we would, therefore, recommend that the case 0 for a new trial.

In conclusion, your committee would say, that among these cases we find almost e"ery grade of ofI'ense charged known to the catalogue; and while we deprecate the fact that such characters have been permitted to "pass the outer door," j'et we rejoice to see a disposition among the I:â&#x201A;Ź::J to "heave them out among the rubbish," and hope the good work will go on until, "without fear, favor, or affection," and not on account of malice or ill will, the augean stable be cleansed, and the cancers upon our fair body be removed ere they sap the vital organs of the Fraternity, and the institution fall to pieces by its own rottenness. The labors of one of Jour committee-the Chairman-at least, have been arduous and difficult. Yet, with all the lights we could get before us, we have done t~e he~t.we could, and now ask to be discharged. S. H. SAUNDERS, R. E. ANDERSON. S'rA'rES OF EXPELLED MASONS.

Dnrin~ the &cssion of the triennial meetings, in St. Louis, last month, we had the pleasure of taking by the hand many of onr brother correspondents fro111 different parts of the countr.v. and it was propo.'ed to ha\"(; a meeting of them, and form a temporary" mutllal admiration &ociety," to la't ahout one e\'ening, and then pitch into each other the next three years. but the prevailing festivitie& took up so much time that the project fdl through. As a general thing, we found that those who used the sharpest pens possessed the freest hearts, and all evinced the sph'it of men who tr) to do the greatest good for their fdlows, without regard to policy 01' fa\¡or.

\Ve look upon the corps of correspondents as one of the most important auxiliaries in Masonry. for without their criticism thel'e is no knowing to what excesses ,omc officers might not go. Ther are. in fact, thc â&#x20AC;˘. fight' ing mcmbers" of the family, and they sa\'c Grand i\Ia,ten; the unpleas. antness of criticising se\'erely each other. And should this be our last contl'ibution to the general stock of reports, we wish Our successors as much fun as "'c h[\\'e had. ARKANSAS.

The annual address of the Grand Master is a b~autiful production: it treated of the gradations of mind in passing through the mysteries, and illu-trated the vast dift'e"ence between one who ,tlldies and thinks, and one who mc,..:ly goes through Mnsol1l'Y like an automaton. He gil'es a hopeful picture of St. John's plasollic) Collegc, hut still acknoldcdgcs the whole thing, ,0 far, is an experimel1t. Much depend;; up:->n the future. For the ,ake of the Grand Q of Arkansas and masonic orphans, \I'C hope it may be a success, just by the way of Yarkt)'. for we n'~"er heard of a Masonic College yet (in the U. ::;.) amount to anvthin s beyond b~in:; a sort of ho-pital for d~funct profe.ssor,;, or a g'r>o<! hOl1e for the pickings of money coll('ctors. Wc admire the heart that prompts the experiment, but hal'c "cry little confidence in the jud~:pnel1t that tries to carry it out.

as our own, viz., nothing at all, except for the particular 0 intel'ested, for merely ordering a 0 to strike out one word and inserting another, without giving the context, is of no benefit to any other 0, and no law is learned by such process. But, we presume, that such will always be the case in these Grand C{b which do not adopt a uniform code for subordinates. Every year the same performance is gone through with; it is an everlasting resetting of the same old broken bones, an amending repetition of correcting old errors. A committee of three was appointed to prepare a history of Freemasonry in Arkansas. Good! A memorial page is set apart to Bro. Samuell\Iitchell, who died July, 1867, aged 73 years. Report on Foreign Correspondence was rendered by Bro. Samuel Williams. The report is well written, and we will here begin with our purpose to make our Report on Correspondence as short as possible, and must, therefore, waive for the present any lengthy review of our cotemporaries' productions.

Grand 0 held its forty-seventh Annual Meeting at Montgomery, December 2, 1867; M. W. Bro. Wilson Williams, Grand Master, presiding. No enumeration of CEJ represented. The annual address is a good paper, treating principally of official acts during the year. A special committee was appointed to determine the feasibility of forming a Masonic Life Insurance Company. The returns of twelve CEJ U. D. were reported on. The report on Finance showed about $7,500 in the treasury. Bro. \Vm. C. Penick rendered an interesting report on correspondence. The Committee on Finance reported having received $3.$1I 55 donations from other jurisdictions for the poor; $.S27 30 of which was from this State.

gulf of strife is bridged over, and we enter a land of 'peace and harmony,' where our feet tread the sacred' pavement' of the D. Would that Masonry were universal! then would all enemies be subdued, and the nations learn war no more. Alas! how striking the contrast between Masonic and Political re-union. But we forbear comment. "In the name of this Grand Body, and in behalf of the ten thousand brethren here represented, we tender our thanks to our Northern brethren for these gifts, and for many, many signal demonstrations of Masonic good-will toward our brethren when' wounded and in prison,' of which, returning from captivity, they bear cheerful and grateful testimony. Brethren of the North and West, 'you have fed the hungry, clothed the naked, and bound up the wounds of the afflicted.' God reward you! We can only thank and honor you for it."

M. and Grand Lecturer also submitted reports of official doings. The Grand 0 adopted a resolution allowing a recommender of a candidate to speak in his behalf, but no other remarks to be made. The same chronic report on by-laws of subordinates shows itself in the proceedings before us. "Cui bono!"

The following appropriate resolution was adopted:

"Re.<olved, That whenever it shall come to the knowledge of a subordinate CJ in this State that any person shall have obtained the degrees of Masonry during a temporary absence therefrom, and in violation 01 the regulations of this Grand CJ, it shall be the duty of the CJ in whose jurisdiction said person shall reside, without delay" to present charges against him, and proceed with his trial in due form." Bro. Joseph K. Wheeler submitted a very good report on correspondence. Bro. William Storer, of West Hartford, is Grand Master, and Bro. Joseph K. Wheeler, of Hartford, Grand Secretary.

The Twelfth Annual Communication of the Grand CJ was held at Kingston, July loth, 1867; M. W. Bro. Wm. M. Wilson, Grand Master, presiding. Number of C2J represented not enumerated. The annual address treats of many subjects, such as "Atlantic Cable," "The New Dominion," "A General Grand CJ," "The Masonic Asylum," "A Building for Grand 0 Purposes," "The Work," " Board of General Purposes," "C2J U. D.," "Jurisprudence," "The Grand Secretary," "Boston," "Distress in Georgia," "Representatives," "Unaffiliated Masons," "Fenianism," &c., &c., which afforded an extended field for remarks generally. The reports of D. D. G. Masters are also very full and complete. Bro. J. \V. Ferguson rendered a full report on correspondence, reviewing thirt)路路five Grand Cfu. We find over $20,000 in the treasury. This Grand CJ has also an elephant on its hands in the shape of a masonic asylum, and without knowing all the particulars of the institution, we will venture this prediction, viz., that in the end, the Grand CJ, and all other Grand Cfu, will find that it costs more to feed the aforesaid quadruped, than it would to take care of all needful Masons and orphans, in much better style, at regularly organized institutions of the kind. Much local business was transacted.

We heartily apprO\'e of the one that a petitioner must sign his name, and not make a mark. A man who can only make a mark on a petition, will make a "ery pOOl' one in Masonry. Probably, the first motion he would make after being a member would be to dispense with the globes, on the supposition that the earth is flat and stood still.

The report of the Grand Secretary is very complete, and gives a catalogue of the Grand D library. Bro. Laurence C. Owen rendered a very able report on correspondence. Bro. John R. Buckbee, Grand Orator, delivered a very fine address before the Grand D, from which we would gladly make extracts, were it not that we have determined to be brief. The Committee on Grievance made about twenty-five distinct reports, instead of consolidating them, as with us. This makes it more difficult to get at the gist of the decisions in a glance.

we believe he was the Deputy Grand Master presiding as Grand Master, on account of the death of M. W. Bro. G. C. Whiting, the Grand Master. The annual address is chiefly local, and refers to the death of the Grand Master and the settlement of the difficulty with Virginia. The Grand 0 recognized the Grand Orients of Peru and Italy, founded by a different Rite, that has no legal Masonic existence. But on this matter we have already expressed our opinions-last year, under the head of Mississippi. Bro. Wm. Morris Smith rendered a very valuable report on correspondence. A memorial page is set apart to M. W. Bro. Geo. C. Whiting, who died September 4, 1867, aged 51 years. He had been Grand Master for eight years.

The Grand 0 met in Macon, October 30, 1867 j M. W. Bro. John Harris, Grand Master, presiding. The Cfb represented not enumerated. The annual address speaks cheeringlyof the condition of the Fraternity in that jurisdiction. We find that this Grand 0 has also a languishing Masonic College on its hands, and appeals are made for more extended aid. We sympathize with the brethren in their noble efforts, but we ha"e not the slightest hope that they will ever be successful in making the college anything but a dead weight on the Fraternity, and merely benefit a few professors, and some children, who could be far better educated at a regular institution for less than half the money. The Grand 0 appropriated $3,000 for the salary of the president. Bro. Geo. L. Barry rendered a brief report on corre.pendence. We find no recapitulation of work, [2::J or members. Bro. John Harris, of Covington, was re-elected Grand Master, and Bro. Simri Rose, of Macon, re-elected Grand Secretary.

He reports having granted dispensations for twenty-one new C€Jj also, four for laying corner stones. His address is interesting, and shows an attentive discharge of official duties. We are pleased to notice that the question of permanently locating the Grand 0 is receiving earnest attention. The Grand 0 decided that though a brother may confess gllilt at a trial, still the ballot as to guilt must be taken. We think so, too. It was also decided that when the Grand 0 reverses the decision of a subordinate on expulsion, and orders a new trial, that the expelled member is thereby restored to good standing, until such subordinate 0 shall again try and expel him.

We can not agree to this, for the reason that the IIction of the Grand 0 does not do away with the charges, and certainly no member undel' charges can be said to be in good standing. Bro. E. A. Guilbert submitted an incomplete report on correspondence, and it does not appear in the proceedings.

The report of the committee upon the case, and the modus operandi of tr.ying a Master, is very elaborate indeed. It covers the entire ground, and as such cases have arisen, and may yet arise, in our own jurisdiction, and as we have no established procedure in trials before Grand D, we incorporate the entire report for the consideration of the members of this Grand D: "The committee to whom was referred the charges, correspondence and

documents presented to the Grand 0 by the M. W. Grand Master, in the case of a complaint against W. Bro. R. B. Dean, Master of Berkshire 0, and who were empowered' to summon the accused before them, together with the witnesses, and to send for such papers and records of the 0 as they may deem essential and necessary to a full and impat,tial investigation of the charges, and to report their doings in the premises to the Grand 0, at their Q.!tarterly Communication in September next, with such recommendations as in their judgment may be proper, for the final action of the Grand 0,' respectfully report: "By the constitutions, as well as by the ancient re/{ulations of Masonry, the W. Master of a 0 can not be dealt with by his D, but must be tried by the Grand O. Section 2, of Article IV., Part IlL, of our Constitutions contains all there is to govern us in this investigation, and is in the following language: " 'It shall not be competent for a 0 to try its Master. Any five members of the 0, or the District Deputy Grand Master, may, however, impeach him belore the Grand Master, who shall order an investigation of the charges; and if, in his opinion, they are well founded, and of a character to justify the proceedings, he may suspend the delinquent, and summon him to appear at the ensuing meeting of the Grand 0, to show cause why he should not be dealt with according to the regulations and uSl.ges in such cases established.' " It is certainly worthy of mention that this is the first case ever brought before the Grand CEb, so far as your committee have been able to discover. No precedent can therefore be found in our history for such a trial. The Constitutions themselves are extremely brief upon the subject. From the documents presented to your committee, it appears that in May last the W. Master of Berkshire 0 was regularly impeached belore the Grand Master by five members of his G, and that on the twenty-second of that month the M. W. Grand Master suspended him from his office, and placed the Senior 'Varden in his place. It also appears that, at the last quarterl), communication, this suspension was, by a vote of the Grand 0, continued in force until this meeting. The Master was not summoned to appear at the quarterly communication in June last; but your committee, sitting in vacation, made a recommendation to the M. W. Grand Master that he summon him to appear at this communication. Your committee believe that, in referring this subject to them, it was the intention of the Grand 0 that the committee should point out the course to be pursued in a case of so much importance and novelty, and that it was not intended that they should go further. The reasons for this conclusion will appear in the following recommendations:

â&#x20AC;˘

A PPEND IX.

[Oct.

"I. The first step to be taken is the impeachment of the Master. This is to bc done by five members of his D, or by the Dish'ict Deputy Grand Master "f the District in which the CEJ is located. This impeachment correspond' to the accusations or charges mentioned elsewhere in the article above referred to, and consists of thc particular charges reduced to writing and properly signed, upon which the Master is finally to be tried. He is to be impeached before the Grand Master, ... e., the charges are to be presented to him. "II. The Grand ~[aster is to order an il1\'estigation of the charges, for [he purpose of ascertaining if, in his opinion, they are well founded and of a character to justify further action, because the Master of a 0 should not be suspended upon frh'olous charges, nor upon serious charges, if there is not good reason to belie\'e they are well founded. The Grand Master is to satisfy himself either b.v a personal investigation, or by oTder路 ing it to be made by disinterested and discreet brethren; having satisfied himself that the charges are well founded, and of a character to justify the proceedings, "III. He may suspend the delinquent and summon him to appear at the ensuing IIlcctin,C; of the Grand O. Suspension may follow after an inve'stigation hy the Grand l\Iastel' or his order. In the pl'esent ("'Sc', the Master was suspended, and there"ore the inn~stigation rcquired must have taken place. The investigation spoken of in th" order of refert'nce to your committee could not h,\\'c contemplated thc inve,tigation preliminary to smpension, so that they have not considered it to be a part of their duty to investigate matters which ~he Grand Ma,ter has already done. It is not absolutdy rcquired that the Grand Master should suspend the Master, but if he docs, he luust summon him to appear before the Grand O. This is the only way in which jurisdidion can be obtained over the Master. In default of this summon" not a step further can be taken. He should have e"ery opportunity gin~n him to appear and show cause why he should not be dealt with. to ohj,路c( to the charges if he see fit, to request delays, aad interpo'e such other ohjections as he may dl'em necessary: in other words, no action l'an be tak"n adverse to the aecuse,l untit he has b,'en summoned to appeal'. This ,"mmons should be issued in compliance with the pro,路i~ion, of the fir"t d'"l>e of the first section of Article IV,. gi\'ing the l\Tasll'r the constitutional t'1lH' of fourteen days, at lca~t, bcfo,'e the meeting of the Grand O.

At the meeting of the Grand 0 before which the

moned, he should be solemnly called, and if not present, the Grand 0 will take such action upon his default as it rna)' deem proper, If present, the charges should be read to him, and, in the language of the Constitututions, he should be called upon' to show cause why he should not be dealt with according to the regulations and usages in such cases established;' that is, to show cause why he should not be tried according to the regulations and usages provided in the Article IV. above referred to. If he is unable to show such cause to the satisfaction of the Grand 0, the Grand Master should then call upon him to plead to the charges. He may plead special~ or generally; ,', e., he may plead specially that he has not been regularly summoned, that a copy of the charges has not been served upon him, or that the charges are insufficient or informal, or he may plead generally that he is not guilty. If he pleads specially, the Grand 0 must determine upon the sufficiency of his answer. If he pleads that he is not guilty, then he is to be tried by the Grand D. The Article IV, abm'e referred to directs minutely the several steps to be taken in the trial of an IIccused .brother. "The trial before the Grand 0 of the Master is only a change of the form. So far as possible, e"ery step should be followed in the trial according to the constitutional requirements in the case of a brother accused before his O. The trial of a Master before the Grand 0 should not be less formal than that of a brother by the Craft. There are, however, some of these steps which can not be taken in the Grand 0, by reason of its peculiar membership, There are many grave reasons why it should not sit day after day for the purpose of hearing testimony. It would. be impossible to keep the brethren together, coming, as they do, from distant parts of the State, and prepared to leave their business and homes for a short time only. "Your committee, therefore. belie"e that the Grand 0 would be empowered to appoint a committee to take the testimony on one side and the other of 'such witnesses as the Grand Master by his written order should direct, and that the accused should ha"e ample notice of the time and place, when and where, the evidence should be given. We can enforce obedience to the process of the Grand 0 only upon those who are of the household of the faithful, and if it should be required to take the evidence of persons not Mawns, residing at a distance, tl1ere would be no way of obtaining it, unless by going where the witnesses reside. In this particular case it would be absolutely necessary to take some such means to obtain the evidence. as most, if not all, the witnesses on both sides reside more than one hundred miles from the Grand East; so that if the rule was enforced, that the witnesses must be produced before the Grand 0, no trial could be had. But your .committee believe that this

6


82

APPENDIX.

[Oct.

committee appointed to take testimony should have no discretionary powers, except to exclude hearsay evidence; that they should take the testimony of the witnesses subject to such objections .as either party might see fit; to make and report it to the Grand D, without any opinion, comment or recommendation; and upon this evidence the accused shou~d be tried before the Grand 0, in accordance with the Constitutions. The Master can not be tried by his 0, and it would seem that he should not be tried by a committee of the Grand D. They not only should not affect the judgment of the members of the Grand 0 by any opinion of their own, but they should reserve their own judgments until the accused had been heard, and the evidence discussed, and the complainants had also had opportunity to present their views. The impropriety, therefore, of the committee's making any recommendations to the prejudice of either party becomes apparent. It would be unjust to themselves, and prejudicial to a fair investigation of the charges. With this view, your committee have considered that the Grand 0 did not intend that they should report 'such recommendations as in their judgment may be proper for the final action of the Grand 0' concerning the accusations, or the evidence either for or against them, which would bias the fair judgment of the high tribunal before which this W. Master is to be tried. "Bro. Albert G. Mackey, in his 'Principles of Masonic Law,'1 p. 325, remarks: 'In trials conducted by Grand (fu, it is usual to take the preliminary testimony in a committee, but the final decision must always be made in the Grand 0: "V. After the evidence has been submitted to the Grand 0, and carefufly read, the accused has the privilege of addressing the Grand 0 by counsel (being of the Craft). The accusers should also have the same right. "The question, â&#x20AC;˘ Is the accused guilty or not guilty?' should be distinctly put to the members of the Grand 0, in accordance with the Constitutions. If the accused should be found guilty, the puni~hment for the offense can then be determined by the Grand D. "In the conduct of the impeachment of the Master of a 0 by the course recommended, the rights of the accused would be preserved, and the dignity of the Grand 0 would be preserved, in an affair of such great importance. "It will be observed that the Constitutions use the word' lmpeacamll"t' .in this connection, and that it is not elsewhere made use of in connection with any other officer or member of the Grand D. This term was undoubtedly taken from the English practice of impeachment before the Lords by the Commons or" Great Britain, â&#x20AC;˘ which was a presentment to

the most high and supreme court of criminal jurisdiction, by the House of Commons.' The W. Master is thus impeached by a certain number of his D, and tried by his peers in the Grand D, which is our 'most high' and s::lpreme masonic court. The act itself is a solemn one, when the members of the Grand D, from all parts of the Commonwealth, assemble to sit in judgment upon a bl"Other who has been selected to preside over his brethren, and who, because he has been thus sele~ted and installed into his official station, is a peer in Masonry, and made eligible to the highest positions of confidence which the whole Craft can bestow." The committee having under charge the consideration of incorporating

t:e:J, did justice to the subject; and from exhaustive arguments adduced, they arrived at the following conclusion. until the annual meeting:

This resolution was laid o\"er

"No D shall apply for, receive or act under any corporate charter granted by any Legislature or political government; and the receiving of such charter of incorporation, or acting thereunder by any D under this jurisdiction, shall operate as a surrender and revocation of its Masonic charter or warrant from this Grand D." 'We hope for i~s adoption, because we are satisfied that no one can calmly consider the subject without irresistibly arriving at the conclusion that the incorporation of CEJ is fraught with great danger to the Fraternity. The committee to whom was referred the case of Nova Scotia, entered very fully into the merits of the new Grand D, and the chairman of the committee being Bro. William S. Gardner, one of the clearest Masonic minds in this country, we are disposed to place great weight upon his conclusions. With all of' them, however, we can not fully agree. For instance, he combines the provincial control of the three independent Grand Câ&#x201A;ŹJ of England, Ireland and Scotland into one concentrated jurisdiction, thus placing the Province of Nova Scotia outside of the position of "common territory." He evidently comes to this conclusion on the ground, that as the countries above named form one ch"il government, and Nova Scotia being a province of that government, it follows that no otller Grand D, save one of the three mentioned, could exercise Masonic control in said Province. By the same reasoning it might be held that an,)" State or Territory of the United States, having no Grand 0 of its own, but being occupied by subordinates planted by se\'eral adjoining States, was not open to any other jurisdiction (England, for instance), because the several States and Territories of the United States form one Federal Government. The


APPENDIX.

[Oct.

Grand CEJ of the various cOL.Lries in the British Empire do not form one united Grand 0, any more than do the several Grand CÂŁ:J of the United States form one Grand D; and we therefore hold that any State, Territory or Province, at home or abroad, being under the control of no one Grand D, is open territory for all. If, therefore, any Grand 0 might rule CÂŁ:J in Nova Scotia, it was perfectly competent for those subordinates to create a Grand D to rule themselves. \Ve can see no other logical or safe action for international Masonic government. With Bro. Gardner we fully agree, that in order to form a Grand 0 in Nova Scotia, it was absolutely necessary that there should be some unity of action among the subordinates themselves, for certainly a minority could not create a power to rule the majority, especially with that peculiarly strong character of absolutism belonging to Grand CEJ. Bro. G. says he visited the province, and found, instead of a majority, only about one-fifth joined in creating the Grand D. With such a minority, masonic obedience could not be enforced, and for that Grand 0 to tolerate the existence of another masonic power in its territory, whether provincially or otherwise, would be destructive of .its dignity, its power and usefulness. All the outside recognition in the world will not give it character or strength. unless it possesses the elements of unify at home. This being the state of the case, we do not wonder that the Grand 0 of Massachusetts withheld its recognition. Since writing the above, we have obtained further information from Nova Scotia, which will be found under that head. For ourselves,

w~

do not consider that "consent" of the mother Grand D should be formed upon such principles of masonic equity as shall secure their recognition.

"Brethren in this jurisdiction have been designated as Representatives for these bodies near this Grand 0, and will, it is presumed, present their credentials." This may be all right, and it may be all wrong. 'We incline to the latter belief. We are not informed by the proceedings before us whether the Grand 0 of North Carolina was informed as to the Masolll'c character 01' standing of the aforementioned Grand Orients or not, and we are clearly of the opinion that it knew nothing whatever about them. They employed a sort of Representative broker to negotiate a recognition, and he succeeded. He represented these Grand Orients as Masonic, with high sounding titles, and that was the end of it-nothing more. If the Grand Master of North Carolina will be kind enough to inform us who planted the first 4b in those countries, and whether those Grand Orients were legally formed by those subordinates, and further, whether those Grand Orients are in Masonic harmony with the Ancient York Rite, he will confer a favor upon us, and his own jurisdiction; for, to tell the truth, we have yet to see any proof whatever that they are not the enemies of our Rite, and doing all they can to strangle it in their jurisdictions. In all courtesy, we say to the Grand 0 of North Carolina, "All is not gold that glitters." \Ve find a very interesting obituary on our late Bro. Grand Secretary Wm. T. Bain. Bro. Robert 'V.

APPENDIX. NEW BRUNSWICK..

The Convention, to consider the formation of the Grand 0 of New Brunswick, met in St. John, August 16, 1867. Seven C€:J represented. On motion, W. Bro. Lester Peters was called to the chair, and W. Bro Wm. Wedderburn was appointed secretary. it.

The Chairman called the meeting to order, and explained the object of He said:

"That in conversation held among several Masters and Past Masters, and other prominent members of the Craft, it was deemed desirable to hold a convention to consider the present altered position of the masonic status in this province, consequent upon the confederation of the provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. " He referred t9 a recent address of the Grand Master of Ca.nada, (Most Worshipful Brother Wilson.) as quoted in the Freemasons' Magazine, published in Boston j in which address the M. W. Grand Master of Canada brought to the notice of the Craft the important changes which the act of union, confederating the provinces, had effected, and presented the whole matter for their careful consideration. "The Chairman stated that, in view of the fact-that the t!'fclusive right of erecting C€:J in this province could no longer be maintained by the Grand C€:J of England, Scotland and Ireland-this meeting was called to consider whether or not it was desirable that a com'ention be held to discuss the courses open to the C€:J in New Brunswick, viz.: To form an -independent Grand 0, or to unite with the Grand 0 of Canada, preparatory to the formation of a Grand 0 for the Dominion. "This, therefore, was an informal meeting, convened for the purpose of talking the matter over in general conversation." After an animated and harmonious discussion, the following resohltion was proposed by W. Bro. J. V. Ellis, P. M., No. 524, seconded by W. Bro. R. Marshall, P. M., No. 535, and adopted, viz.: "Resolved, That the chairman and secretary of this meeting be authorized to address a circular to all C€:J in New Brunswick under the jurisdictions of England, Ireland and Scotland, stating that this meeting deems it desirable that a convention should be held, to consider the present position of masonic affairs in this province, and to take such action thereon as may be deemed necessary. The C€:J so addressed to be requested to authorize their Masters, Past Masters and Wardens, to meet in such convention; and further, that any 0, not in a position to be represented by the above officers, may appoint proxies in lieu thereof."

Also, "Resolved, That the Constitutions of the Grand 0 of England be, for the present, adopted as the Constitution of the Grand 0 of New Brunswick, so far as the same may be found applicable to existing circumstances, except, nevertheless, that the following officers shall be elected by Grand 0, viz :-Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master, GnuuJ \Vardens, Grand Chaplain, Grand Treasurer and Grand TJler j the remaining officers to be appointed by the M.

A 0 of Master Masons was opened, and the Grand 0 was duly consecrated and dedicated according to ancient custom. The aforementioned Grand Officers were duly installed.

NOVA SCOTIA.

At the last session of the Grand 0 we were appointed on a committee to investigate the status of the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia, and in pursuance of that duty we wrote to the Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Bro. Stephen R. Sircom, on the 1st of June last, stating the points upon which our Grand 0 was undecided, viz: I. Whether the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia controlled a majority of the subordinates in that province; 2. Whether the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia was wholly and fully identified with the Ancient York Rite, or the so-called "A. and A. Scotch Rite." The doubt created in the minds of some of our members relative to the latter point arose from the difficulty and correspondence which occurred between some C拢!J in Halifax and the Grand 0 of North Carolina; and also from the titles which the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia invested their foreign representatives, such as "Illustrious Bro. j" "33d,"etc. The difficulty was honorably and amicably settled between it and the Grand 0 of North Carolina. In the reply of the R. W. Deputy Grand Master (and acting Grand Master), dated June 9th, the "Scotch Rite" doubt is removed by the following candid statement: "Touching the style' Illustrious,' addressed to your Representative near your Grand 0, there was no intention on the part of the Grand Master, M. W. W. H. Da\'ies, (who is now absent,) to convey the least impression that the" 33d " was recognized by the Grand o of Nova Scotia. That the accredited Representatives of the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia should bear the title of 33d, I consider is more by chance. I was totally unacquainted with the fact. .. .. .. Through Bro. Cassard, of New York, the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia has become recognized by the Grand ~ in South Carolina, together with Italy.and Portugal. Probably these work the so路called Scotch Rite, and having accredited Representatives there, it would naturally lead to the supposition contained in your communication. I have much pleasure in assuring you that the C2:J holding under the Grand C2:J of Nova Scotia are only authorized to work the' York Rite.''' This, to us, is perfectly satisfactory, as we can fully understand how a Joung Grand 0, struggling against opposition at home, and seeking

APPENDIX.

recognition abroad, might be led into error by so astute a Representative diplomat of the Scotch Rite as Bro. Cassard, who is straining every nerve to get the so-called Grand Orients of South America, Italy, Portugal, etc., recognized and brought into fellowship by the legitimate York Grand =€:J on this continent. In this interchange between Nova Scotia and the Grand Orients alluded to, the Grand D of Nova Scotia was the only loser, and we trust that not only it but every other American Grand D will be more cautious about recognizing and accrediting every Masonic fungus that calls itself a Ma"olll'c body. This question of Rite having been satisfactorily settled, we found but one more to determine, viz., that of Grand D authority in the province. We wrote on the 21st of July, stating that the Grand D of Missouri holds, as a condition precedent, that there can be but one supreme masonic authority in any State or Territory where a Grand D is established, and that it had been reported to us by other jurisdictions, that the Grand D of Nova Scotia did not control a majority of the subordinates in that province, and we held that without such control, there could not be masonic unity or power. We also referred to the report of the Massachusetts committee on this question, in which it was stated that there were forty C€J in the province working under the jurisdiction of England, Scotland and Ireland, and that a small minority of them recognized the Grand D of Nova Scotia. Bya letter from R. W. Bro. Chas. J. Macdonald, Grand Secretary of Nova Scotia, under date of September loth. 1868, we learn that this report of the Massachusetts committee contains a great error, arising from some mistake in the roll ofC€J at work. Bro. Macdonald says: "I assure you there is not in this province one D under the jurisdiction of either the Grand D of Scotland or of Ireland. I refer you to the proceedings of the Grand D of England. I think you wil1 find the number to be about twenty-three, even admitting them to be all health)', working C€J, and more lying dormant. Bro. Gardner (of Mass.) states that about seven were working under the juriSdiction of the Grand D of ~ova Scotia. This is an error. The Grand D was formed two .rears ago with ten [fu. At our last annual communication of June, we had twenty-two C€J and have now twenty-five, and two more applications were presented at our last quarterly meeting. It is true, at the formation of the Grand D, we had not a majority of the C€J in the province, but that was owing to the peculiar situation of masonic affairs in the province. [Here follows a detail of the long delays that occurrred in corresponding with the mother Grand C€J; also the opposition of Bro. Keith, the Provincial Grand Master of Scotland.] Bro. Keith reissued three charters which were surrendered by the unanimous vote of the members

belonging to the lÂŁJ at the time. They were reissued to men who were not even members before the surrender. Two of those Cfb haye died out since their second birth, and the other drags out a sickly existence." These were declared irregular by the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia, and all charters not surrendered are defaced so as to prevent a reissue of them, in order to a\'oid any furthel' irregularity on that point. A delegate has been appointed to attend the Grand 0 of :Massachusetls to rectify the mistake made. We regret that at the time we write, the report of the proceedings for 1868 has not reached us. It is with great pleasure we are able to announce that the Grand 0 of Nova Scotia controls nearly (if not entirely) all of the lÂŁJ in that province, and that its organization is correct and its stability firmly established, and heartily, with Jour committee, unite in recommending its recognition by the Grand 0 of Missouri. We have thus given a very full report of the case, because we ha\'e le.Lrned from sister Grand Cfb that they were awaiting the report of Jour committee appointed at last session, 1867. Relative to the point of "consent by the Mother Grand Cfb," we have already fully reviewed that under our report all ":Massachusetts," to which we refer. R. W. Bro. Stephen R.

And that such is the correct Masonic usage does not admit of controversy.

"The possession of the degree of Past Master is not necessary to qualify a Warden to preside over his D, and even to confer the degrees in the absence of the Master; although the mere temporary ah.ence of the Master doe. not confer any right upon a Warden to convene his 0 in Special Communication, unless so requested by the Master." We fully agree with this, except the latter clause, requiring consent by 'Warden to call special meetings when the Master is absent. The Grand :::J repealed the law requiring a fee for affiliation. Vve agree with it. In this jurisdiction each D decides this for itself. We extract the following excellent decision by the Committee on Jurisprudence: "~Ilery-An E. A, or F. C. having been made or passed in D A, petitions D B for the other degrees, accompanying his petition with a permit from and under the seal of the D, authorizing D B, in particular, or any other D in the world, to receive the brother's petition, and if found worthy, to confer the degrees upon him. Must the petition be referred and balloted upon? And if elected and the degrees conferred, of which D is he a member?

"Al1swcr-The petition must be referred and balloted upon, the same as though the petitioner was a profane. The granting of permission by D A, for the brother to receive his other degrees elsewhere, is the surrender, on the part of 0 A, of all jurisdiction over the brother, and he becomes a member of the 0 in which he receiYes the degree of M. 1\1. "But in cases where 0 E is requested by D A to confer one or more degrees for it, upon a person who has been duly elected to receive them in 0 A. then no reference or ballot is required, and the brother becomes a member of D A, for which the degrees were conferred, 0 E simply conferring them as an act of courtesy to a sister D-although, if any brothel' should object to the conferring of the degrees upon the party, all action should be postponed until the objections are investigated, as provided in Part III, Art. 3, Sec. 5, of the Constitution; and if the objection be sustained, D A should be notified of the objection. "~lIel)'-To whom does the money belong-to D A, which elected the party, or to D E, which confers the degrees?

"Al1$~vl!r-If0 A grants permission to an Entered Apprentice or Fellow Craft to apply elsewhere for the other degrees, and the brother presents his petition to 0 B, as our Constitution requires that the fee shall accompany the petition, the first knowledge which 0 E can ha\'e of the petitioner, is accompanied by the money, and therefore 0 B has nothing to do with the question whether the brother has paid 0 A, in which he

"Your committee, listening to the debate on the report which was referred back to it for emendation, have become impressed with the belief that this system of electing a man to receive the degrees, and then requesting anQther 0 to do the work, is but another phase of emergencymade Masons, made for a foreign market."

The appropriation is made, and the candidate is elected. I decided that the proceedings were irregular, as being a palpable evasion of the 8th General Regulation, which requires the payment of a certain sum by a candidate as an initiation fee, and of that decision of the Grand o which declares that no promise to pay shall be received in lieu of that fee.

"5. In the absence of the Master the Senior Warden is authorized to occuPY the East, and do all work appertaining to that station, including the conferring of degrees. "6. A brother, who has been elected, installed, and served in the South, is eligible to the East. It is not necessary that he should ha\'e served in the West. "7. In the trial of a brother under charges, the affidavit of a profane, taken under oath, before a civil officer authorized to administer oaths, but taken in the absence of the committee, the accused and his counsel, can not be admitted as e\'idence against the accused.

Nineteen new Cib were constituted. Many Cib were visited during the year, and great interest manifested in acquiring the work. He alluded to the death of Bro. William B.

On the 24th of June last the R. W.

It will cost in the neighborhood of one million of dol1ars. The elective Grand officers of sister jurisdictions were invited to be present and assist in the ceremonies. Several States responded to the invitation, and our own was represented b.y your humble servant; and we desire to here record our grateful acknowledgments for the manifestations

of courtesy and hospitality extended on all sides, not to ourself as an individual, but as the Representative of the Grand O. The ceremonies were perfectly carried out to the termination of the plans laid down. The procession contain~d nearly ten thousand Masons in line, all dressed alike, viz.: full black suits, hats and cravats; and the Masonic clothing consisted of that pure and simple regulation of the Ancient Craft, white lamb~kin apron and white gloves. This was right, and it was beautiful. In the evening a magnificent banquet was set in the Academy of Music, where nearly one thousand brethren sat down to as fine a dinner as could be prepared. We might enter furthednto details, but suffice it to say, we do not suppose that a corner stone was ever laid in the United States in a simpler manner, nor yet with more imposing significance. The poor, miserable, ranting horde of Finney, Blanchard & Co. must have felt supremely insignificant when beholding, in that column, miles in length, thousands of the most intelligent, moral and important citizens of one of the first cities of the republic. The oration was delivered by the R. W. Grand Master, Bro. Vaux, with a power of eloquence, purity of diction, beauty of thought, and appropriateness to the occasion, worthy the national reputation of the gilted author. Much was expected of him, and he met the anticipati~ns of the most fanguine. SOlITH CA.ROLINA..

The Grand Master referred to the donations from Missouri and other States for the sufferers. We regret very much to see the Grand Secretary, in his correspondence as such officer, signing himself " 3~d, Grand Secretary." We have before expressed our views upon this innovation, and we might say more, in pointing out how out of place and unmasonic is the whole performance, but in doing so might hurt the feelings of some, which is not our desire. We sincerely trust that such improper practices, which can result only in bringing contempt and disgrace upon our honored Craft, rna)' be entirely abandoned.

We quote the following decisions: "1st. Is a member under charge for unmasonic conduct entitled to vote on a ballot for initiation or advancement? "2d. If he is not entitled to vote, but does wrongfully do so, and casts a black-ball, does this illegal vote reject the candidate? "3d. If this illegal vote does not reject the candidate, can he be initiated without another ballot? "To these several questions I have returned the following categorical answers: " rst. A member under charges is not entitled to any privileges whatever, except that of an impartial trial, and therefore can not vote on a ballot for initiation or advancement. " 2d. Ifbut one black-ball appears, and that be cast by the member under charges, the candidate is elected, the illegal vote being a nullity. "3d. The petitioner is entitled to receive the degree, having been constitutionally elected." We are pleased to see that the Grand 0 adopted a uniform code of By-Laws. The Grand 0 decided against establishing an asylum on account of the impoverished condition of the Fraternity. The following resolution was adopted:

"BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH.

" Charles Arnold Fuller was born in the town of Springfield, Otsego county, New YOl'k, on Saturday, August 25th, 1816, "In early life he was thrown upon his own resources, and very soon developed that tenacity of purpose, strength and determination of will, strict attention to business, indefatigable industry, and unflinching fidelity to his business engagements, which characterized him through life. "His motto in business was, 'that whatever was worth doing at all, was worth doz'ng well;' and to this mainly may be attributed whatever of success attended his efforts. "At about twelve years of age he went into a printing office as an apprentice, and learned the' art preservative of all arts;' and for man> years he followed that business, as journeyman, foreman and proprietor. "He came to the city of Nashville, in 1832, with but twenty-five cents in his pocket, and remained several days, vainly seeking employment. At last, when almost despairing of success, he was called upon to take the place of 1\ printer who was enjoying a periodic spree-and thus he commenced life in Nashville. From this time forward he' always had something to do; and he did perform more arduous labor, in different kinds of business, than falls to the lot of ordinary men. "From 1832 until his death he remained a citizen of Tennessee, except about one year, which he spent in Kentucky in the effort to establish a newspaper, which, not proving successful, was abandoned. "During this period, he lived in Columbia about nine years, and the remainder he spent in the city of Nashville, and was well and favorably known to its citizens. " He was confined to his bed, in his last illness, for about six months; and during this period I was with him a great deal, part of the time as often as twice a day. I had many close, familiar talks with him, and from these I learned that he bore his long and severe illness with unusual fortitude and resignation; that he knew his approaching end, and was fully prepared to meet his fate; that he had, in fact, as he himself remarked shortly before his death, 'not a doubt as to his future welfare i' that he was revived by the evergreen and ever-living sjrz'g of faith in the merits of the Lion of the tribe of Judah, which strengthened him with confidence and composure to look forward to a blessed immortality beyond the grave; that he welcomed the grim tyrant Death, and received him as a kind messenger sent from our Supreme Grand Master to translate him from this imperfect to that all-perfect, glorious and celestial 0 above, where the Supreme Architect of the Universe presides.

"At his death, he was a communicant of the First Baptist Church in this city, of which he had for many Jears been a member. "Bro. Fuller's Masonic history and career possesses, at tbftl time, and to most of my hearers, peculiar interest. "He was made a Mason in Columbia 0, No. 31, in Columbia, Tennessee, in January, 1842, and subsequently was elected and served as Seeretar,}', Senior Warden, and Worshipful Master of that 0. " He was made a Ro,}'al Arch Mason in Lafayette Chapter, NO.4, Columbia, Tennessee, in 1842, and was subsequently elected Secretary and High Priest of that Chapter. "He received the degrees of Royal and Select Master in Nashville Council, No. I, and allerward assisted in resuscitating Concordia Council, No.2, at Columbia, and was elected its Th. III. G. Master. "The orders of Knighthood were conferred upon him in Nashville Commandery, No. I, on the 22d of December, 1848. He was subsequently elected Prelate and Eminent Commander, filling the latter position for several years. "Upon returning to Nashville, in 1847, to remain permanently, he affiliated with the different Masonic bodies here, and remained in good standing therein up to his death." Bro. Jame~ M. Anderson is Grand Master, and Bro. John Frizzell, of Nashville, was appointed Grand Secretary. TEXAS.

Grand 0 held its Thirty-second Session in Houston, June 8, 1868, M. W. Bro. John R. Fretwell, Grand Master, presiding. Seventy-three CEJ were represented. He reports having issued no dispensations for CEJ, the petitioners not having complied with the law. He also reports having refused all petitions for dispensations to confer degrees out of the regular time, not finding any good reasons for such course. Good for the Grand Master of Texas. His address is a good, clear business paper. We find a cash balance of $567 92 on hand. The Grand 0 very wisely decided that all proceedings at a trial in a subordinate 0 must go upon the 0 record-that is, all things proper to be written. We regret to find that many supplemental reports of the same committees are not consolidated in the proceedings. We believe the better plan is that adopted by our Grand 0, viz.: for each standing committee to en-

with the visitor.

2d. By an examination to be had under the direction of the \Vorshipful Master in the D, or in some room adjacent thereto. From this we are inclined to believe that he would rule out an avouchmerit made by a third party; for instance, Bro. A. may vouch to Bro. B. that he has sat with Bro. C. (then present), and Bro. C. vouches to the D. This we believe to be lawful information; for if we rule it' out, then the Tyler's vouching is not good, for in most instances he is the Bro. C. We fully agree with him in maintaining the integrity of jurisdictions. He recommends the recognition of West Virginia, on the principal ground that other Grand Cf!::J ha\'e done it. To us this is no argument at all, for some of the greatest heresies of the age have been indorsed by the greatest number. Much important business was transacted, and the report of it is well prepared.

OFFICE D. D. GRAND MASTER FIRST MASONIC DISTRICT, PALMYRA, September 25, 1868. M. W. WIll. E. Dunscomb : DEAR SIR AND BROTHER-As in duty bound, I herewith submit to you an account of my official stewardship as Deputy District Grand Master for the First Masonic District, embracing the counties of Marion, Lewis, Clark, Scotland, Knox and Shelby. On the 28th day of February, A. L. 5868, I organized Clarence 0, U. D., at Clarence, Shelby county, Missouri, by your authority, with Bros. Andrew J. Hilton as Worshipful Master, Jas. R. Clark, Senior Warden, and Samuel L. Patton, Junior Warden. They have a new hall constructed for the purpose, with new set of jewels, and manifested a commendable zeal for the cause. Some of the officers were not as .. bright" as I hope they have since become. On the 9th day of April, A. L. 5868, in pursuance of your directions, I organized Craft 0, U. D., at Canton, Lewis county, Mo., with Bros. Jas. M. Holt as Worshipful Master, John H. Pendergrass, Senior Warden, and L. R. Lockwood, Junior \Varden. They occupy the hall of Canton 0, No. 100, which is well titted up, and speaks well for the enterprise of the Craftsmen in that locality. Bro. Holt is an "old hand at the bellows," and withal a model man in whose hand the cause will not suffer. On the 2nd of May, A. L. 5868, by your order, I organized Fairmont D, U. D., at Fairmont, Clark county, Mo., with Bros. Jas. T. Laughlin,

Worshipful Master, John E. Henry, Senior Warden, and Cicero A. Lewis, Junior Warden. They have a new hall, neatly arranged and admirably adapted for the purpose. for which they are indebted to the liberality of Bro. Laughlin's father, whom I found to be "an old time Freemason of the dass of \Vashington." With" good men and true" for officers, and an abundance of "material suitable for the building" in the neighborhood, I expect great things of them. On the 9th day of June, A.

ganized Edina 0, U. D., at Edina, Knox county, Mo., with Bros. John W. Lee, Worshipful Master, Davis BIy, Senior Warden, and Wm. E. Ednis, Junior Warden. The 0 was organized in, and for awhile occupied a hall in common with the Odd Fellows, but they have since procured and removed to a suitable one of their own. The charter of the old 0 was arrested because some of its members, disregarding their vows and the cardinal principles of our ordel', rejected "suitable material," because of its political texture. Upon re-organizing the 0, I took occasion to allude to and denounce such conduct in no unmeaning terms. From what I have seen of Bro. Jno. W. Lee, I think he is the right man in the right place, and apprehend no repetition of such culpable conduct while he is in charge. On the 30th of June, A. L. 5868, in pursuance of a resolution adopted by the last Grand 0, I called a convention of the Masters and Wardens of the l:â&#x201A;ŹJ in my district to meet at Canton, in Lewis county, for the purpose of exemplifying the work and lectures in the three degrees of Masonry. Notwithstanding it was a busy season of the year, and the mercury at 102 in the shade, yet, to my surprise, every 0 in the district except three was represented, there being some forty-five delegates in all present. Then was the time for our worthy Grand Lecturer to have been present and "dispensed true Masonic light and knowledge;'; hut despite my earnest entreaties, a concatenation of unforeseen circumstances, over which he had no control, kept him away, and the under.igned had to "handle the trowel" as best he could. The brethren were very attentive and zealous, and received the instructions given into" good and honest hearts." All seemed highly gratified with the result of the two days' labor, and voted the convention a success. If the system of Deputy District Grand Master is kept up in our jurisdiction, I recommend them to ,; Go and do likewise," and they will find that not only much good will be done by comparing notes, answering questions, removing objections, and illustrating the work, but it begets an acquaintance and social feeling among the officers of the various t:e:J, from which great good will come. During the year r have visited nearly all the t:e:J in my district, and while I frequently found "workmen that needeth not to be ashamed," yet here and there I have encountered" mere daubers." In some places (too many, in fact,) they have the form, the machinery, the tinselry of Masonry, without its jov.'er, which is to be fonnd alone"', tke integrity of its members. Many, r fear, have enlisted in our army to wear plumes and epaulettes, and become the recipients of glory and renown. Such are always cowards when the cannon booms, and the cries of the wounded around them proclaim the reality of battle at hand.

In view of the fact that our portals are now being thronged, and the zealous, curious multitude are knocking for admission at the door of our temple, I have not hesitated to warn the brethren, wherever I have been, to " Guard well tke otlter door."

To tke M. W. Grand Master Gra11d 0 of Mi"souri: In obedience to the requirements of the Grand 0, I herewith submit my report as D. D. Grand Master, Second Masonic District. On the nd of January last, I visited the brethren of Lancaster, and set them to work, under dispensation granted by last Grand D. I learn they are doing well, and recommend a charter be granted them. At the request of the brethren at Atlanta, I granted permbsion to Past Grand Master Vincil to set them to work, which he did, under dispensation granted by yourself. In the early part of the season I addressed letters to all the C€:J in this district, inquiring whether they desired the caIling of a meeting of Masters and Wardens for instruction. Some were in favor of the "meeting," provided it could be held at their hall, or in their county; others preferred to have me visit them at their respective C€:J, while others did not answer at all. I therefore concluded not to call the" meeting," but to visit as many of the CEJ as I possibly could, which desired me to do so. I met with La Plata 0, No. 237. They have an excellent hall and are in a prosperous condition. Good will and harmony prevail. Visited Bloomington D, No. 102. Had a cordial reception and pleasant time. Found the brethren {o be zealous and live Masons. E,-crything in a prosperous condition, so far as I could learn, with one exception, and am satisfied they will discharge their duty in that case. Had a pressing invitation to visit McGee o. Appoin"ted a time, but was taken sick suddenly, not able to leave my room; hence was unable to comply with their request. I learn, however, that the :::J is in a prosperous condition, harmony pre,-ailing.

DEAR SIR AND BROTHER-As required by law, I herewith respectfully submit my report as Deputy Grand Master of this District, lor the year ending the second Monday in the month of October, 1868. On or about the 22d day of November, 1867, I was requested by the brethren of EagleHille D, in the couuty of Harrison, who had obtained a dispensation from the Grand 0, to meet with them and start a new D in their town. Not being able to attend in person, I authorized Bro. W. G. Lewis, Past Master of Bethany D, No. 97, to set them to work, and report the same to me, which was done; since which time I have visited said D, found them working badly, corrected irregularities, and, I am pleased to state, that they are now doing good work. By request of Stewartsville D, No. 182, in the county of De Kalb, I proceeded to said D on the 28th day of December, A. D. 1867, and met a portion of the brethren, there not being a full attendance; installed the W. M., and authorized him to install the remaining officers; have since visited said D se\'eral times; found their minutes in bad condition, instructed them, and had the same revised and corrected. By verbal request of the Grand Master of Grand D, on the 13th day of June, A. D. 1868, I visited said D again to settle a misunderstanding then existing between the officers of said o. I required them to refer the matter to their D, and furnish me a copy of their action, which I herewith respectfully submit for the action of the Grand D.

In the latter part of May, 1868, I was ordered by the Grand Master of the Grand 0 to visit Friendship 0, No. 89, in the county of Livingston, to examine into difficulties existing in said 0; found a large membership; good hall well furnished; but a great deal of discord existed. Politics, I think, was the chief cause. I met with them, lectured them, and they promised me to correct all irregularities then existing. Have since received a communication from them stating that all misunderstandings had been adjusted, and that peace and harmony prevailed. Benevolence 0, No. 170, at Utica, Lh'ingston county, I found working harmoniously - no jars or discords existing; found their work and minutes correct in every particular. Spring Hill 0, No. ISS, in the county of Livingston, I found, contrary to my expectations, from Bro. J. L. Davis' report of 1866, to be in excellent working order. Their minutes and work were examined by me, and found to be correct in every particular. Daviess 0, No. I16, in the county of Daviess, is composed of good working material, and it affords me pleasure to state, is in excellent working order. They have a good hall, well furnished, and are a credit to the district. Pattonsburg O,No . 65, at Pattensburg, Davis county, I visited on the 30th day of June, A. D. 1868; imtalled their Worshipful Master, and directed him to install the remaining officers of his o. I found the 0 in good condition; work and minutes correct. They have a good hall, small, but secure. Lectured them, Rnd left them in peace and harmony. Western Star 0, No. IS, in Victoria, Davis county, was chartered in May, 1866. Have visited the same several times, and find them in good working order; have a good, secure hall, and Rre doing excellent work. Jamesport路 0 , No. - , Jamesport Davis county, I found to be dull and indifferent, sadly deficient in a knowledge of the work, and, with few exceptions, do not seem to take much interest in Masonry; remained with them two days; had a public installation of the officers; lectured them, and left with the promise that they would do better in future. Salem 0, U. D., at Salem, Davis county, has a small but secure hall. Opened the 0, and set them to work, under dispensation, on the 30th day of March, A. D. 1868.

M. W. Wm. E. Dunscomb, Grand Master G,'and 0 of Missouri: SIR AND BKoTHER-I herewith submit my rnport for the Masonic year just closed, as D. D. Grand Master for the Sixth Masonic District. I have visited every 0 in the District during the year. The Worshipful Masters at Portland and Miles' Point did not receive the notices in time to convene their CEl, but from members of the C2J I learned that both C2J were in good condition, morally and financiall}'. I did not, therefore, think it necessary to meet with them. The CEJ generally in this district have improved in the last year in work and morals. I have visited some of the Cib two and three times during the year, where I thought it necessary. Clifton Hill applied to you last spl"ing for a dispensation for a 0, You sent it to me to know if I would ~ecommend that the request be granted. I refused to recommend the granting of dispensation, but promised I would visit Clifton Hill when I visited Thomasville o. I have done so. Clifton Hill is on the branch railroad, six miles from Thomasdlle. The brethren have built a large and commodious hall, and are capable of working. When I visited Thomasville 0, I advised them to petition the Grand D to move Thomasviile 0 to Clifton Hill, and change the name from Thomasville to Clifton Hill 0 No. 161. The 0 has since had a meeting, and I have received a letter stating that the 0 had "oted unanimously to have the 0 moved to Clifton and the name changed. I would therefore recommend, if the Grand 0 makes the change, that a dispensation be granted them to hold an election for new officers at as earl}' a day as possible. I would recommend that some change be made in the present system of districts. It is not what it should be. I have had several invitations to visit CEJ out of my district, and one 0 in Henry county has been soliciting me to visit them for a year or more, and I have consented to do so , next week. The present system can, and should be, improved. I am convinced if the CEJ were visited once a year, regularly, by competent persons to instruct both in the work and lectures of Ancient Craft Masonrr, and also to enforce the moral principles of Masonry, the Craft would be benefited by it. Hoping to meet with you at the Grand

APPENDIX.

The officers of this 0 are skilled in the work. and deserve success; but few members as yet, but, with a population around them steadily increasing, patience and perseverance in good work, they will soon show a bright record. These Gb U. D. will, doubtless, all send up transcripts of their proceedings at the approaching session of the Grand 0, which will, I hope, meet with the approval of yourself and the Grand 0. I have visited the following Gb in this county: Bonhomme, No. 4S; Bridgeton, No. 80; Good Hope, No. 218; and, in St. Charles county, Palestine, No. 241. I found them all quietly pursuing the even tenor of their way, steadily increasing in numbers, all anxious for instruction in the work and lectures, and ready, cordially, to greet any skilled brother duly authorized who has the time to devote to their service. Wentzville 0, No. 46, is the only One in this district that I have been unable to visit. I regret that an engagement which I made to visit them was not carried out on account of a misunderstanding in our correspondence. In this city, I have visited the following Gb: Meridian, No.2, and Erwin, No. IZI, both working in German. Their records are well kept, harmony prevails among them, and their work I presume to be as nearly correct as difference in language and idiom will allow. Records of Erwin 0, for several years past, have been kept exclusively in the Gennan language. Also, Missouri, No. I; Beacon, NO,3; George Washington, No. 9; St. Louis, No. 20; Naphtali, No. 25; Mt. Moriah, No. 40; Polar Star, No. 79; Occidental, No. 163; Pride of the West, No. 179; Keystone, No. 243. I have found their records well kept, and, with a few exceptions, work correct and well done. There is now a general spirit of hannony among the Craft, and a better understanding of points of masonic usage and jurisprudence generally in the Gb, and, on the whole, in contrast with its condition some years ago, improvement in all things necessary to the welfare of our Order is distinctly marked, and its future prospects very encouraging. In November last I called upon the officers of the Gb in this district to assist in forming a 0 of instruction. This call was responded to by most of the city 1:ÂŁ1, as well as by Good Hope, No. 218, of Carondelet, and under the able supervision of R. W. Bro. T. E. Garrett, Grand Lecturer, weekly meetings were held for about six months. The. result of these labors has been very satisfactory, and is evident in the improved work of those who attended regularly.

The following Cfb are the most proficient in the work and lectures: Missouri, No.1; George Washington, No. 9; St. Louis, No. 20; Naphtali, No. 25; Keystone, No. 243; Occidental, No. 163; Pride of the 'Vest, No. 179; and next to them in order as named, Beacon, NO.3; Mount Moriah, No. 40; Polar Star, No. 79. I notice a practice obtaining in some of the [â&#x201A;ŹJ of electing as honorary members, members of other [â&#x201A;ŹJ. I think that if any opinion has ever been expressed by the Grand 0, it has been adverse to such a practice. I state the fact for your information. During the past year the C2J here have been closely pruning their rolls of delinquent members. They are now comparatively free from drones, but I fear that the lists will again increase under the tedious routine necessary by the By-Laws of the Grand 0 to free them from such encumbrances. The strict construction also put upon the expression" definite suspension," has caused innumerable sentences of suspension for twenty, twenty-five and thirty years, for non-payment of dues. It seems to me that suspension" till dues are paid," though indefinite as to time, would be sufficiently definite, so far as the accused party is concerned, and be fully within the meaning and spirit of the By-Laws of the Grand O. Before concluding, I would suggest the propriety of the Grand 0 positi\'ely defining the mode of opening CE!:J on the several degrees, and closing, or changing from one to another. In this matter there is very great irregularity. In conclusion, I would acknowledge my obligations to Bro. W. A. Prall for his assistance in visiting C2J in this district, and giving many of them much valuable instruction in the work and lectures; to Bro. D. N. BurgOJ'ne for his aid on many occasions when it could ill be dispensed with; and to the officers and members of CE!:J in the District, for their uniform courtes)' and re;pect to me when visiting officially, and their genial kindness to me otherwise.

APPENDIX.

Masonry in this district (9th) is in a pro~perous and healthy condition, the accessions to the different C2:J being as large as, in my judgment, the good of the Order requires j especial1y among C2:J who are cautious as to the material which is presented for the builder's lise. I am not advised of any dissensions or strife in any of the C2:J, or their members; peace and harmony prevailing within the jurisdiction. On the 28th of December, 1867, I visited Mystic Tie 0, No. 221, and installed its officers for the ensuing Jear, giving them instructions in the work and lectures of the Order. On the 5th of December, 1867, Bro. john L. Thomas, of Hillsboro, b)' my direction and with proper authority, dedicated, consecrated and constituted, indue form, De Soto 0, No. 119, at De Soto, Missouri, and the)' are now working under their charter, granted by the Grand 0 of this State. On the 26th of August, 1868, W. M. Bro. John J. Miller, by direction, being authorized by me thereto, met with the brethren of Marble Hill 0, in Bollinger county, and set the Craft to work under a dispensation from the M. W. Grand Master, constituting Bros. \V. C. Talby, Worshipful Master; S. A. Cullrent, Senior 'Varden; G. A. Ruter, Junior 'Varden; J. W. Rider, Secretary; T. B. Laurence, Treasurer; F. F. Dickman, Senior Deacon j N. Stratton, Junior Deacon j J. B. Stephens, Tyler. Their report, I trust, will show that the brethren constituting Marble Hill 0, U. D., are good and true men. My professional duties have prevented me from visiting the C2:J within my jurisdiction as I greatly desired to do; yet the reports of the various I:ÂŁJ in the district will show that the Fraternity are prosperous, and that the work is well done and the material good and durable.

I am, fraternally, your obedient servant, W. B. WILSON, D. D. Grand Master Nint1l Masomc District.

dious hall, which I dedicated on the 4th of July last. That D is in a ftourishing condition, having an immense quantity of the best of material. I visited Faithful D, U. D., in December last, and set them to work, giving them some necessary instruction. I have visited them since and found them in a good condition, guarding the ~a//ot-~O:f strictly; and would recommend the Grand CJ to grant them a charter. I authorized Bro. Marshall to visit and set to work Four-Mile 0, No. 212. I laid the comer stone of the Black River Seminary, at Poplar Bluff, July nth, 1868. My extraordinary press of business this year has prevented me from visiting the CEJ east of here. I have notified the Masters and Wardens of Johnson, Bloomfield, Four-Mile and Faithful CEJ to meet me at Poplar Bhiff, September 28th, to receive the work and lectures. In conclusion, Masonry, so far as my knowledge extends in this district, is in a good condition. I hear of no complaint. Very little work is doing except in Johnson D. I would particularly call the attention ofthe Grand 0 to the fact that our district should be divided. Mississippi, New Madrid and Pemiscot should be made a new district, as they are divided from the other counties by an impassable swamp, and officers can not go, having to go by Cape Girardeau to ge rrom one side to the other. All of which is fraternally submitted,

DEAR S1R-I herewith present my annual report, as Deputy District Grand Master of the Eleventh Masonic District. In accordance with the resolution, passed by the Grand 0, authorizing the several Deputy District Grand Masters to convene CEJ of instruction in their respective districts, I convened a D of Instruction at Masonic Hall, Rolla, on March 3d, 1868, the following CEJ being represented: Rolla, No. 213; Hermann, No. 123; Sullivan, No. 69; Pacific, No. 159; Union, No. 173; Salem, No. 225; Evergreen, No. 27; Linn, No. 66; St. James, No. 230; Hope, U. D. There was a large attendance of the Masters, Wardens and members of the above CEJ. The session IMted two days, during which time there was manifested lhe greatest interest. The

work was exemplified in every respect and degree; and the unremitting attention bestowed proved that the effort was not in vain. In e,-ery respect the meeting was a success, and afforded perfect satisfaction to all in attendance. I am entirely pleased with the result, and consider C£J of instruction as, perhaps, the'best means Jet adopted. The records of the several C£J were carefuny inspected, and, in the' main, found correct. On the 20th January, 1868, Alton D, U. D., was set at work by Past Master J. M. Orchard, of Salem D, who reports the prospect for that new CJ as very favorable, the material being good. Cedar D, U. D., also has been set at work, but I have no information from any source as to its condition or prospects. Mount Zion D, U. D., is working, the brethren having been constituted into a D on the 7th March, 1868-W. Bro. C. H. Latimer, of Texas D, No. 177, setting them to work in due form. Hope D is working under a renewed di~pensation, their records and former dispensation having been destroyed by fire. Texas D, No. 177, moved into their new hall last June (24th), upon which occasion there was a grand assemblage of Masons from all parts, and the han dedicated with all the honors of Masonry. The prospect is fair that a strong and influential D will now be sustained at Houston. Pacific D, No. 159, c,lebrated the 24th of June last in a highly creditable manner, and with Its proverbial hospitality. Rona D, No. 213, par¡ ticipated upon the occasion, turning out as a D, in full numbers. These meetings of Cib, recipl"Ocal in character, are of manifest advantage, as they tend to strengthen the bonds of fraternal feeling, and are conducive to the general welfare of the Craft. A highly interesting and eloquent address was delivered by R. W. Martin Collins, Past Grand 'Varden, in public, and which was highly appreciated b.y the large number of ladies and brethren present. St. James D, No. 230, has just built and completed a splendid han, of brick, entirely safe, commodious and elegant. It will compare favorably with any Masonic hall in the State, outside of St. Louis, and is justly the pride of its sterling members. I am unable to make any report of Lebanon, No. 77, Evening Star, No. 94, or of Chamois, No. 185. TheJ were not represented in the D of instruction held in March, and I have not been able to visit them. On the 27th December last I dedicated the Masonic Hall at Rolla. Seldom has it been my privilege to witness a more impressive pageant. Rona D, No. 213, turned out in full numbers, and the hundreds assembled

to hear the addresses delh'ered on the occasion seemed deeply impressed with the influence and stability of the Order. In reviewing the condition of Masonry in this district, I am greatlyencouraged with the prospect as far as heard from. Masonry is in safe hands! However defective the work may in some instances be, yet I am satisfied it is "a misfortune, not a fault." To acquire proficiency in any thing renuires time, patience and perseverance, and this is prominently so in Masonry, with our unwritten ritual, sublime and beautiful beyond comparison with that of any other organization. With assurances of profound esteem and fraternal respect, I am, very truly, your friend,

Pleasant 0, and Hickory Hill D. The 0 of Instruction was opened Monday, June I, and closed Friday following. The brethren attending were well satisfied with the result, and were of the opinion that uniformity in work and lectures could be obtained by due diligence and effort on the part of the Masters and \V"ardens. June I6th.-Received invitation from Pleasant Mount 0 to visit them and instruct them in work and lectures. The officers of Hickory Hill D were also present. Opened 0 for instruction Tuesday evening, June 16, working with them day and night until Thursday night. I was gratified with the earnest, persistent efforts of the officers and members to perfect themselves in the work, and I can assure you their labors were not in vain. June 24th.- Owing to engagements elsewhere, I was unable to dedicate the new hall of Versailles 0, and commissioned Bro. Sanders to perform that duty. He reported to me that he dedicated the hall 24th June. Bro. Jno F. Phillips, Grand Orator, delivered an oration. Had a very pleasant time. June 26th.-Visited Holden D, U. D.

You referred me to a statement signed by the Wardens and a majorit)路 of the members of Holden 0, charging the Master of said 0 with excessive use of ardent spirit~, and empowering me to investigate the matter, and take such action in the case as might appear to me conducive to the interests of the D. I consulted with a majority of the members of the 0, and found that a few were of the opinion that the Master was not guilty as charged, while a larger number were of the opinion that his intemperate habits were bringing reproach upon the institution, and destroyin6 the harmony of the 0, I did not mention to the Master the object of my visit, hadng detennined to gather all the information possible before bringing the subject before the D. They told me that since the statement had been forwarded to you, there was a change for the better in his habits. After a free interchange of opinion between the brethren who signed the statement, it was thought best for the harmony of the 0 to let the matter drop,

and not mention the object of my visit either to the Master or o. I will here state that the members signing the statement spoke in terms of the highest respect and good feeling for the Master, only regretting his intemperate habits. I left Holden, feeling assured that peace, harmony and good feeling would pre"ail, and that it would not become necessary to Ift-ing the subject before you again, and I made a verbal report to JOu to that eft"ect. July 8th.-Visited Tipton 0, and ell:emplilled work in second and third degrees. Records tolerably well kept; finances in good condition. Peace and hannony prevail among the brethren of this 0, the only contention being, "who can best work and best agree." July 9th.-Visited Versailles 0, and exemplified work in first and third ) degrees. Records well kept j finances in good condition. They own their :::J room, and are free from debt. July J3th.-Received dispensation for a 0 at Jamestown, Moniteau county. Authorized Bro. R. ~ Roache to set them to work. He reported that he set them to work July 18th; that" he found the 0 room not only entirely safe, but uncommonly handsome and convenient, and the officers quite proficient in the work." July 22d.-Visited Pleasant Grove 0, No. J42, Otterville. Having received an invitation from the 0, I met with the brethren of Otterville, and remained with them three nights and ,Ava days. The brethren were very anxious to learn the work and lectures. The work of Pleasant Grove o will compare favorably with that of any CJ in the district. Their 0 room is small and poorly ventilated, but very neatly furnished. Bro. Sanders has been Master of the 0 for fourteen years, and under his watch-care the 0, financially, is in a flourishing condition. More hospitable, genial, whole-souled brethren can not be found than the members of Pleasant Grove o. ]eft"erson 0, No. 'u, is in a flourishing condition, financially and morally. We endeavor to guard well our outer doors j strictly requiring all who desire to gain admission to be in possession of the necessary qualifications-moral and Masonic. The Câ&#x201A;Ź:J throughout the district, I understand, are generally doing well j and lowe an apology to you, Most Worshipful, as well as to the Câ&#x201A;Ź:J I have not visited, for failing to visit them j but I have given all the time that I could to the work. It is the privilege of District Deputies to suggest such measures as to them may appear conducive to the general good; and, in this connection, I de. ire to oft"er a few brief suggestions in regard to securing uniformity

of work in this Grand Jurisdiction; and I give it as an opinion that the District Deputy system is the most feasible plan to secure this desired result. That this plan has failed heretofore, can not be denied; but the failure ought not to be attributed to the Deputy system, but to a lack of proper efforts on the part of the Deputies and C2:J of the several districts; the fault is not IN the law under which we are now working, but the failure of the C2:J and Deputies to comply WITH the law. That the present system is a success, has been demonstrated by trial in this district, and the successful operation of the law has been commensurate with the efforts put forth by the brethren engaged in it. Require the Deputies to be thoroughly qualified to teach the work and lectures authorized by the Grand 0 of Missouri, before they are commissioned j then let the Deputies call C2:J of instruction, to continue two weeks, at least twice during the year; and if the officers of subordinate C2:J will attend, and diligently apply their time, I am satisfied that uniformity will benearerattainedthan has been heretofore. In conclusion. M. W. Grand Master, I return you my thanks for the honor conferred upon me in appointing me your District Deputy, and also to Bros. Sanders, Hunt and Roache, who have always been willing to assist me in the performance of my official duties. Fraternally, yours, JAMES E. CARTER, D. D.

Herewith I present you report of my Masonic doings under the commission you were pleased to grant me at the last session of the Grand 0. October 28.-Dispensation for Corinthian 0, at Warrensburg, was sent me, which I forwarded to Bro. B. E. Morrow, requesting him to officiate for me. I afterwards ascertained that Johnson county was not in my bounds, and did not again interfere with the work of Bro. Owens. October 29.-Set Tri Lumini 0, No. 205, at Marshall, to work under charter; dedicated their hall and installed officers. This will soon earn a first class position among the CEJ of the jurisdiction.

July 28.-Visited 'Vellington, having In my possession a charter for Dawson 0, No. 37, which was restored at the last session of the Grand D. I found the brethren very indifferent, manifesting very little desire for their 0 to be re-organized. I also found that there was not that harmony and fellowship existing among some of the brethren that should characterize members of a D. Nearly if not quite all the members had procured dimits from the Grand Secretary, and most of them had joined other C€:J. 1..: nder these and other circumstances not necessary here to mention, I deemed it for the best interest of the Craft to retain their charter. I have returned it to the Grand Secretar,Y, and recommend that it be annulled. If the brethren there desire a 0, I suggest that they begin de IIOVO, by applying for a dispemation in regular form. During the year I have visited and lectured seventeen Cib, and regret that I could not vi,;it e"ery 0 in my district. I am satisfied that some of tt.e Cib that need instruction most I was unable to visit. I did not

APPENDIX.

hold a D of instruction, in obedience to the resolution of the Grand 0 recommending it, for the reason that it wall entirely impracticable. If you will examine the geographical position of this district, you will see the impossibility of anyone man doing justice to the Cib without de"oling more time to the business than most of us have at our disposaL In the district there are thirty-one CÂŁ:l. To visit them all would require 500 miles travel and at least 90 days time. I suggest that the district be cut down at least half. If nothing better can be done, I suggest that in order to give it a respectable shape, that Benton county be added to No. J2; and if 13 must have seven counties, substitute Johnson. I am, however, satisfied that the district is too large, and that the Cralt would be benefiled if more districts were made and more workers in the field. I am happy to state that the spirit of improvement that is so prevalent in our State has infected the Cib, and several new and beautiful halls are in process of erection, and will be dedicated to Masonic uses. Arrow Rock D, No. 55, has nearly completed an excellent hall, an ornament to their town and a credit to the good sense and liberality of the brethren. Tri-Lumini, No. 205, and Miami, No. 85, are also erecting large and commodious halls. Waverly D has completed, and is now occupying, a new and very tasteful hall. All these are in my own county, except the last named. In my district, I believe I can safdy say that Masonry was never more prosperous than now. Wherever I have been I have (with one exception) been received with that cordiality and fellowship which ever characterize the true Craftsman. I found an earnest and z?alous membership, more than anxious to learn the correct work of our jurisdiction, and determined to have a perfect uniformity. Peace and harmony prevail, and every moral and social virtue cements. I have given you a brief but imperfect history of my operations since the Grand 0 last met. \Vishing you success and happiness through life, I am, respectfully and fraternally, yours,

APPENDIX.

[Oct.

During the year I have officially visited the following Cfb: Washington, No. 87; Mount Vernon, No. 9'}; Modern, No. 144; Pleasant, No. 160; Newton, No. 175 j Bolivar, No. 195 j Carthage, No. 197; Granby, No. 216; Neosho, No. 247; Stockton, U. D.; Lamar, U. D.; Central Creek, U. D. j Rock Prairie. U. D., and Avilla, U. D. For want of time and opportunity, I have not visited the following C£J : Yancy, No. LtS; Virgil, U. D.; Osceola, U. D., and Hogle's Creek, U. D., but have had reliable reports from most of them. I spent from three to fh'e days WWl most of the C£J visited, and exemplified the work and lectures of symbolic Masonry, and examined their records and by-laws. I found the brethren everywhere, with scarcely an exception, anxiOllS to receive instruction in Masonry. They almost everywhere insisted earnestly on my remaining longer than the time fixed upon, and, except at one or two p:aces, forsaking their business, remained with me day and night, earnestly strh'ing to qualify themselves to conduct the work of the D correctly. I mention these circumstances, in order to urge upon the Grand 0 the necessity of providing some systematic means of furnishing instruction to the C£J. They need it; they requ;re it; they ought to have it. The defects of the present system have been so often pointed ollt, and are so generally well understood, that it would be useless to repeat them. Owing to the fact that many Cfb have been started or reorganized during the year, a great deal of labor-far more than is usual-has been thrown upon me. The new C€::J needed instruction; in fact, could not be organized without it. I have de\'oted during t1'e year, taken all together, more than sixty days entirely to the work of visiting the Cfb, and giving instruction to officers an'd brethren. Although doubting the practical utility of the suggestion made by the last Grand D with reference to C£J of instruction, I should have endeavored to give the plan a trial if circumstances had not prevented it. The C£J in this district have, as a rule, labored under peculiar disadvantages. All, wi~h the exception of Washington D, No. 87, are either new C£J, or old ones revived, with an almost entire new membership. The members are from almost every Grand 0 jurisdiction in the United States. The first attempts of some of the C€::J have resembled more the jargon of the tower of Babel, than the harmonious workings of the craftsmen at the temple. The zeal and energy of the brethren, however, have done much to remedy this state of things, and in the course of time, no doubt, our C€J will compare favorably with those of other portions ofthe State, and even now a number of them will do so.

I have several recommendations to make with regard to vario\ls Cib in this district, but prefer doing so verbally to you and to the Committee on Cib, U. D., as it would take up too much space here to give my reasons for them. One general suggestion I wish to make with regard to by-laws of Cib, and that is, that the Grand D ought to so amend and add to its own laws, that but little will be left for Cib to legislate about. I take great pleasure in reporting that entire peace and harmony prevail in the Masonic fraternity throughout the jurisdiction. Intemperance among Masons is decidedly on the decrease, and the Cib are awake on the subject, so that I hope my successor may be able to report its almost entire banishment. I am sorry I can not say as much of another vice, profane swearing, which, though it seems to be on the decrease, is not, as it should be, entirely banished from the lips of Masons. I have endeavored, in the most forcible manner of. which I was capable, to bring this matter before the Cib, reminding them that it is their solemn duty to enforce the by-laws of the Grand D on this subject. I can not close this report without referring, with feelings of deep and lasting gratitude, to the support and encouragement I have received from my preder.essor, R. W. Bro. Arch. M. Long. A pupil, with me, of our lamented Bro. A. O'Sullivan, he has, with singular fidelity, retained his instructions, and with a jealous care watched over the interests of Masonry during the years he was District Deputy, and during the past year he has, by his unfailing kindness to me and his unselfish devotion to Masonry, enabled me to accomplish far more than I could otherwise have done. At a sacrifice of time and means and personal ease, he accompanied me during an extensive tour, in mid-winter, to assist me in the work of giving instruction to the Cib, for which I, and for which the Cib, owe him a debt of lasting gratitude.

During the month of January, 1868, I requested the officers of all the in this district to meet me at the hall of United 0, No. S, and was well pleased with the promptness with which the brethren responded. Every o was represented, and we spent a week together, I hope and believe, very satisfactorily to all. ~

I have also set to work Solomon 0, U. D., at tbis place. They have very efficient and competent officers, and the 0 is much needed here. The Masters of Ozark and - - CÂŁJ, U.

Owing to a severe accident, I am unable to write you a longer report; but I can not close without again bringing to your notice the failure of the Deputy District Grand Master system of this Grand 0. It is too onerous in its workings upon a few brethren; and after returning to you my sincere thanks for your expressions of kindness (and through you to the Grand 0,) for the last six years, I decline another appointment under this system, and hope you will not again ask me to accept it. The Order is prosperous and harmonious in this district, and under the present efficient Worshipful Master, I feel sure will so continue. \Vith many wishes for your future welfare and prosperity, I am, yours fraternally, M.

MEXICO,

To the lII. W. Williall1 E. DIIHscomo, Grand Master ofA. F. and A. M. 0/ tke State of lIfissouri: DEAR SIR AND BROTHER-I submit herewith my report as your D. D. Grand Master for the Sixteenth Masonic District for the past year, commencing October 20, 1867. My engagements and business, together with my delicate health, for the pa~t twelve months, have been such that absolute necessity alone


1868.]

APPENDIX.

could induce me to leave home, and in no instance has such necessity existed. So far as I have been able to learn from good and ..eliable Masonic authorit)·; and so far as I know myself, the Craft in my jurisdiction are harmonious and prosperous, and have never been in a more healthy condition than at present· There are now but three C€J in my jurisdiction, and the distance to be traveled in visiting them is some three hundred and seventy (370) miles in length, and dangerous at all times, as well as expensive. I think the time is not far distant when there may be two more C€J established in this district, viz., one at Moreno, in Mora county, and the other at Pinos Altos, in Grant county. These two mining regions are settling up rapidly, and I learn that there are a number of Masons among the residents. The distance from Chapman 0 to Moreno mines is one hundred and seventeen miles, and from Aztec 0 to Pinos Altos is one hundred and twenty-five miles. By authority received from the M. W. Grand Master of Masons of Missouri, on October 24, 1867, I opened Grand 0 in the hall of Montezuma 0, No. 109. in Santa Fe, we having been previously called upon by some of our most prominent citizens to do so, and laid the corner-stone of a monument to be erected in the Plaza of Santa Fe, to the memory of the soldiers who fell in the battles of Valverde, Apache Canon and Glorieta, during the late rebellion, and was ably assisted by the officers and members of that o. On the 6th of November, 1867, I received the charter of Aztec 0, No. 108, at Las Cruces, Dona Ana county. Being unable to attend in person, I availed myself of the kind services of Bro. Merrill Ashurst, Past Master, and appointed him my proxy. On November 15th, 1867, he organized the same under the charter; consecrated and dedicated the hall, and installed the officers, giving them proper instructions to perform their labors, and made due return to me of his actions in the premises, to my entire satisfaction. He was assisted by Bros. John Pratt and S. B. Elkins. On December 3d, 1867, I received the deed of the real estate belonging to Bent Lodge, No. 204 (which surrendered its charter in 1865), and forwarded the same to the Grand Secretary. The jewels, furniture, &c., remain in the same condition as stated in my report of September 3d, 1867· Of Montezuma 0, No. 109, of which I am a member, I can say that she guards well the outer door, and that her charity is second·to none. Morals are greatly over the average, and having a fair number of mem-

bers. Finances easy. With the brethren peace, hannony and good fellowship prevail in this 0 in an eminent degree. Bro. David J. Miller is still the Secretary, and is as able and zealous an officer as ever, and his efficiency cannot be forgotten by this 0. It affords me much pleasure to know that Montezuma 0 will be represented at this session of the Grand 0 by our able and worthy Bro. Kirby Benedict, Past Master of this 0, who has been appointed proxy so to do by the principal officers of the 0. He is, in my opinion, a head and shoulders above any brother in my jurisdiction in Masonic knowledge, and will make an able representative of our Masonic condition. I also know that he would make a most efficient and zealous District Deputy Grand Master for the Sixteenth Masonic District.

On December 28th, I received a communication from Bro. J. D. Ousterhout, W. M. elect of Chapman 0, No. 95, at Los Vegas, Mora county, inviting me to visit and install the officers elect, or commission some brother to perfonn that duty. Bro. Ousterhout, not having the degree of actual Past Master, and not being able to convene a 0 of Past Masters at Los Vegas, I requested the brother to visit Santa Fe, at his earliest convenience, and the degree would be conferred upon him at once, and he did so. Not being able to visit Chapman CJ and install the officers, Irel{uested Bro. M. Bloomfield, Past Master, to perfonn that duty, which he did, and infonned me of the same, having so done January 18, 1868. This 0 has built a suitable and commodious hall-which is about completed-by SUbscription, which is a satisfactory proof of the deep interest the members take in the cause of Masonry. The dimensions of the hall and adjoining rooms are as follows, viz.: 0 room, 20 by 41 feet; Tyler's room, 8 by 8 feet; preparation room, 8 by II feet; reception room, II by 20 feet; the main walls are thirty inches in thickness. The building is now of one story, but erected with a view of adding one more. The height to ceiling is sixteen feet; is covered with a shingled roof-all the rooms being well ventilated from above. It stands unconnected with other buildings. From infonnation received, the CJ has purchased, at the East, new furniture and carpets, and has funds in the treasury to pay for all. I am happy to say that this CJ is in a healthy condition, and has been doing a fair amount of work. Hannony and good feeling prevail among its members; morals good, and there are some zealous Masons members of this 0, who are laboring with a hearty good will for the welfare of our beloved Order. Aztec 0, No. loS, by trustworthy reports I have had from it, at different times-being in personal communication with some of its officers and members-I can safely say that this 0 is getting along very well with its


1868.]

work, though it has not done a great deal. I also learn that the members are harmonious. Morals good. Finances in a healthy condition for a young d. I rejp'et that I have not been able to visit Aztec 0 in person, and instruct its officers and members in the work and lectures. They doubtless need some instructions. It is the opinion of the most intelligent and zealous Masons in my jurisdiction, and also of myself, that we should have a Grand CJ of our own. We are isolated, and our l:拢J can not be represented in the Grand 0 at its annual sessions, from the fact that the distance is too great, dangerous and expensive. It is my humble opinion that we have in our midst cool and sound wisdom sufficient to control and govern our own Masonic affairs. We are a separate and distinct Territory, which is regularly organized, and acknowledged by competent authority. We have three chartered Gb in active existence within the territorial limits, and we think it but a charity of justice on the part of the Grand 0 to favor and grant our request in this matter when called upon.

Co"c!tm路o".-The above comprises about all of the official acts that I have performed during the past Masonic year, with the exception of answering a great many questions of Masonic law and usage, which I have endeavored, in all cases, to do to the best of my ability. I have now given you a history of my operations. Thankful to you, M. W. Grand Master, for the manifestations of your confidence and esteem in my appointment, and humbly hoping that an abler successor may be appointed, and that the Craft in the Sixteenth Masonic District may continue to prosper as they have done during my administration. With my best wishes for your prosperity and happiness, and for the Fraternity at large, I remain, truly and fraternally, yours,

R. FRANK GREEN, D. D. Gra"d Mastel'.
