GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

To the Officers and Members of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, in 
the Province of Ontario. 

My Brethren : 

As the sands of time run steadily through the 
hour glasses that measure our sojourn here, we 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 41 

realize how quickly the year passes. It seems but 
last week that I stood in this place and made my 
report to the Craft on the activities of the preceding 
year. Again it is my pleasure to welcome back to 
the deliberations of Grand Lodge the Brethren from 
the Lodges that sei've the. communities in this gi'eat 
province. It is always an inspiration to appear 
before this great assembly and to feel that with all 
present, Masonry is a vital and living force that 
moves on towaixis the high ideals that our fore- 
fathers have set and maintained in days gone by. 
I hope that those I welcome to-day will derive profit 
and pleasure from attendance at this One Hundred 
and Fourth Annual Communication, 

The pleasant duty of acting as host to disting- 
uished guests is always a happy privilege. To-day 
we have many outstanding visitors who represent 
several Grand Lodges from the Dominion and from 
the States of the United States. With these we 
also have some of the heads of other Masonic Bodies. 
Many of our guests have acted as hosts to represent- 
atives of our Grand Lodge on other occasions. We 
hope that we can do a good job of showing our 
appreciation for your hospitality in the past. May 
your stay among us be pleasant. May you take 
away pleasant memories of your visit. Please 
cany back our good wishes and fraternal greetings 
to your Brethren. 

The Crown has at all times been significant to 
the peoples of the Commonwealth as the institution 
which binds us by love and loyalty to the reigning 
monarch. To-day as we meet, all Masons in 
Canada are pleased and proud that Her Majesty, 
Queen Elizabe.th II and His Royal Highness, The 
Duke of Edinburgh are on tour in our country. The 
demonstrations of loyalty they have met as they 
have journeyed through this land must make us 
proud of the her-itage that is ours as citizens of this 
fair land who in these weeks have the Sovereign 
within our bounds. A resolution expressive of our 
loyalty will be presented during this Annual Com- 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CAKADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

munication for your approval. When passed, it will 
be forwarded to Her Majesty. 

Since last we met the conditions under which 
we live have changed but little. We seem to have 
moved further into what might be teraied the 
Atomic Age or the Space Age. Tensions seem to 
grip the nations of the earth and man still hopes and 
longs for. relief from fear of what the future may 
hold. As attempts are made to promote better 
understanding among men and nations, we in the 
Craft can hope that the spirit of brotherly love and 
understanding may be applied beyond our Lodges. 
We must hold fast to our principles and make those 
principles a part of our lives so that their significance 
will not be lost and that they may shine as a beacon 
in a world that needs light. 

A Mason once said, "I am always happy to be 
ai^Dund Masons, for as Masons we are young in 
heart and look ahead in life. No builder is living 
in the past. A builder is always planning for to- 
morrow, or he would not be building. The spirit 
of the Masonic Lodge is looking ahead to the future. 
Youth lives in the future. Old age lives in the past." 
It does seem that Masonry must retain its youth in 
that it must be always planning for the future. I 
am sure our outlook is as youthful to-day as it has 
ever been. We must have our plans to make sure 
that our contribution to the structure is worthy of 
the Masonry that was given to us by those youthful 
jMasons who planned in other days. 

IN MEMORIAM 

It is fitting that we should pay a tribute to 
those who have received the final call since last we 
met. Many of those we knew and loved in other 
days have been called to that place where more 
light is available. We honour their memory this 
day and we thank the Great Architect that it was 
our happy privilege to know them as true friends. 
To all those in their immediate family circle, we offer 
our sympathy. May they find comfort in the

I* 

promises of the Great ComfO'rten The Chairman 
of the Committee on Fraternal Dead will report in 
detail later in the sessions. I want to mention two 
who were with us last year, and a third who had 
visited us many times. 

Very Worshipful Brother Ernest B. Thompson 
passed on suddenly at his home in Hamilton on 
March 10, 1959. For thirty-one years he served 
as Chairman of Scrutineers at the annual elections 
of this Grand Lodge. Our late Brother Thompson 
had been associated with the business world of his 
native city all his adult life. During World War I 
he had a very distinguished record of service over- 
seas with the Canadian Army. He was quite active 
as an active member of the Supreme Council A. & A, 
S. Rite for the Dominion of Canada, in which body 
he held the office of Grand Secretarj^-General at the 
time of his death. We extend our heartfelt sym- 
pathy to Mrs. Thompson and his three brothers. 

Our sister; Grand Lodge of Quebec was bereaved 
in the passing of Right Worshipful Brother Reginald 
W. Louthood on March 18, 1959. At the time of 
his death he had been a member of the Masonic 
Order for 51 years and had served his Grand Lodge 
as Grand Secretary since April 1951. He will be 
missed wherever Masons meet in Canada as he was 
known and loved from east to west. To Mrs. 
Louthood and his sons and daughter we offer our 
sincere sympathy. Accompanied by the Deputy 
Grand Master and the Grand Secretaiy, I attended 
our late Brother's funeral sei*vice from St. Mathias' 
Chuirch, Montreal, on ]\Iarch 21st. Just one short 
month before, he was so busy. 

Almost on the eve of the Annual Communication, 
the Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan lost their Grand 
Secretary in the person of Most Worshipful Brothea* 
Robert A. Tate. Even though his health had not 
been up to par for some time, he fully expected to 
be in his place when the Grand Lodge met on June 
17, 1959. On the Saturday beforte, he answered 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the last great call and others had to officiate at his 
desk in Grand Lodge. Brother Tate succeeded his 
father in the office of Grand Secretary in 1938, 
after having been the Assistant Grand Secretary 
since 1920. The Grand ivodge of Saskatchewan 
conferred the Honorary Rank of Past Grand Master 
on him at the time of their Fiftieth Anniversary in 
1956. Besides extending our heartfelt sympathy 
to our sister Gnand Lodge, we offer our condolences 
to Mrs. Tate, the two daughters and the two sons. 
May they find comfort and consolation from the 
Great Comforter. Our Grand Lodge was repre- 
sented at the funeral from the First Presbyterian 
Church of Regina by Most Woiishipful Brother Fred 
C. Wilson, P.G.M., our Representative near the 
Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan. 

CANADIAN CONFERENCE 

The Sixth Biennial Conference of Canadian 
Grand and Disti-ict Grand Lodges was held in 
Montreal on February 19th, 20th and 21st of this 
yeajr. I was accompanied there by M.W. Brother 
J. A. McRae, M. Wor. Brother N. C. Hart, the Deputy 
Grand Master and the Grand Secretary. All the 
Canadian Grand Lodges were represented by their 
Grand Masters and others. The two District Grand 
Lodges of Newfoundland were also represented. I 
was honoured in that it was my privilege to preside 
at the Conference. It was quite interesting and 
profitable to have the opportunity of meeting and 
discussing Masonic problems with sister Grand 
Lodges. 

GRAND MASTERS' AND GRAND SECRETARIES' 
CONFERENCES 

These Confeirences were held in the citv of 
Washington, D.C. on February 2Srd, 24th and 25th 
of this year. Your Grand Master was accompanied 
there by M. Wor. Bro. J. A. Heam, the Deputy 
Grand Master and the Grand Secretary. The agenda 
contained many topics of Masonic interest and it 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 45 

was of g-iieat benefit to be able to meet those who 
administer the affairs of the Grand Lodges on this 
continent. Eight of the Canadian Grand Masters 
attended this year. I would think that is close to 
a record for us. M. Wor. Bro. D. M. Sinclair, the 
Grand Master of Nova Scotia, was the President of 
the Conference. Your Grand Master is a member 
of the Commission on Inforaiation for Recognition 
of this Conference. 

FELICITATIONS 

Our distinguished and much-loved dean of the 
Past Grand Masters was privileged to celebrate two 
anniversaries during this Masonic year. On Dec- 
ember 30th, 1958, he and his bride celebrated the 
Fifty-fifth anniversary of their wedding. Then on 
March 18th, 1959, he celebrated the eightieth an- 
niversary of his birth. In honour of this birthday 
his fellow-members in the Grand East put on a 
birthday party for him on April 4th. I can assure 
you, Brethren, that it was a wonderful party and we 
all had a good time, even the one who blew out the 
candles. I am suii'e all Masons in our Grand Lodge 
and elsewhere extend the wannest good \^ishes to 
M. Wor. Brother and Mrs. Copus on these happy 
events. May many more follow is our fondest wish. 

APPOINTMENTS 

During the year I made the following appoint- 
ments ; 

(a) Very Wor. Brother George W. Porter of 
Ulster Lodge. No. 537, as a Grand Steward, 
on January 5th, 1959.

During- the year I authorized donations from our 
General Fund in the following amounts : 

Crippled Childrem's Hospital $1,000.00 

Ontario Society for Retarded Children 500.00 

Bov Scouts (Ontario) 500.00 

Girl Guides (Ontario) 500.00 

Salvation Army (Red Shield) 500.00 

Cancer Society (Ontario) 500.00 

I now ask your approval of these donations. 

On June 16, 1959, a destiiuctive fire swept an 
area of the town of Lanark, the home of Evergreen 
Lodge, No. 209. The lodge-room, the wanrant, all 
the lodge recoiids and all the lodge furniture were 
destroyed. Permission was granted immediately 
for the Lodge to meet for the time being in the lodge- 
room at Perth and without waiirant until such time 
as a duplicate warrant could be issued. An im- 
mediate grant was made from the funds of Grand 
Lodge in the amount of $1,000.00 to assist in this 
disaster. An appraisal is being made as this is being 
written, to ascertain if further assistance is needed. 
I ask the approval of Grand Lodge for this donation. 
At the same time I feel that all Lodges should review 
the protection of a financial nature that is ca/rriedon 
their premises and equipment. Disaster may strike- 
in your area, so take heed while you can. 

PAST RANK 

1. Because the by-laws of Doric Lodge, No. 58, 
were changed to have the installation one month 
earliea% W. Bro. W. C. G. Collins served as 
Master for eleven months. His Lodge has sub- 
mitted a request for past rank for him in that 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 47 

office. I recommend that he be given the rank 
of Past Master. 

2. Dus to the regular meeting of Rehoboam Lodge, 
No. 65, falhng on a holiday at installation time, 
a dispensation was granted to hold the regular 
mieeting three days earlier. Because of this 
change W. Bro. T. T. Birkett served three days 
less than the statutory time required for past 
ranJc. His Lodge has requested that he be 
granted the rank of Past Master. I so recom- 
mend to Grand Lodge. 

3. Due to the regular meeting of Maple Leaf 
Lodge, No. 103, falling on a holiday at instal- 
lation time, a dispensation was gi-anted to hold 
the regular meeting one week earlier. Because 
of this change W. Bro. R. W. Sher served one 
week less than the statutory time for past rank. 
His Lodge has requested that he be granted the 
rank of Past Master. I recommend that Grand 
Lodge grant the rank of Past Master to W. 
Bro. R. W. Sher. 

4. Because of a change of by-laws in Lebanon 
Forest Lodge, No. 133, W. Bix). Ernest Cerson 
served 19 days less than the statutory time for 
past rank. His Lodge has requested past rank 
for him. I recommend that W. Bro. Cerson be 
granted the rank of Past Master. 

5. Because of a change of by-laws in Caledonian 
Lodge, No. 249, changing the date of installation 
from December 27 to the first Monday in Dec- 
ember, W. Bro. W. M. Penin served twenty- 
six days less than the statutory time for past 
rank. His Lodge has requested past rank 
for him. I recommend that Grand Lodge grant 
the rank of Past Master to W. Bro. W. M. 
Perrin. 

6. Because of a change of by-laws in King 
Solomon's Lodge, No. 378, W. 'Bro. Norman E. 
Murton sei'ved 2 weeks less than the statutory 



48 GRA2ST) LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

time for past rank. The Lodge has requested 
past rank for him. I recommend that W. Bro. 
Noraian E. Murton be granted the rank of Past 
Master, 

7. Due to the regnlar meeting of Alpha Lodge, 
No. 384, falling on Januaiy 1, 1959, a dispens- 
ation was issued to hold that regular meeting 
on December 29, 1958. Because of this change, 
W. Bro. Joseph Gibson had served 3 days less 
than the statutory time for past rank. His 
Lodge has requested the same and I recommend 
that Grand Lodge grant the rank of Past Master 
to W. Bro. Joseph Gibson. 

8. W. Brother Ken J. Brown, Worshipful Master 
of Spry Lodge, No. 385, Beeton, found it neces- 
sary to seek work outside the area served by 
his Lodge. He had been unemployed for some 
time before he was able to secure a position at 
St, Jean, Quebec. Up to September he had 
been faithful in his attendance to his duties as 
Master of the Lodge. His Lodge has requested 
that he be granted past rank and I Tecommemd 
that Grand Lodge grant him the rank of Past 
Master. 

9. Haiiiiony Lodge, No. 438, received a special 
dispensation to hold their regular meeting two 
we^eks earlier than provided by by-law. This 
was the meeting at which the officers were to 
be installed and invested. The reason for 
change was that the Master-elect, who is a 
clergyman, had to attend a very important meet- 
ing of the clergy of his church at the time of 
the regular meeting. Because of this change 
of date the Master, W. Bro. Edward A. Hanley, 
had seized two weeks less than the statutory 
time for past rank. His Lodge has requested 
that he be granted past rank and I so recom- 
mend to Grand Lodge. 

10. Granite Lodge, No. 446, has applied for past 
rank for Wor. Bro, Joseph Sleeman who served 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 49 

as Master of that Lodge from December, 1951, 
until April, 1952. At the time of his resign- 
ation he was transferred by his employers, the 
Dominion Government, to Winnipeg, IManitoba. 
In the letter from the Lodge it is pointed out 
that he had sei^ved in the offices as Wai'den for 
two consecutive years in a veiy satisfactory 
manner and since his change of residence was 
quite unavoidable, I recommend that Grand 
Lodge grant him the rank of Past Master. 

11. W. Bro. T. W. Christilaw was installed as 
Worshipful ]\Iaster of Penewobikong Lodge, No. 
487, to sei've after the Master had resigned. He 
served as Master for the next ten months to the 
entire satisfaction of all the members. His 
Lodge has requested past rank for him and I 
recommend that Grand Lodge grant him the 
rank of Past Master. 

12. W. Bro. William E. Davies of Electric Lodge, 
No. 495, has sei-ved 4 days less than the stat- 
utory' time for past rank. This was due to a 
change in the date for the installation of officers. 
His Lodge has requested that he be granted past 
i:ank and I so recommend to Grand Lodge. 

13. W. Bro. G. S. Statham of Reba Lodge, No. 515, 
has served five days less than the statutory 
time for past rank because of a change of date 
of installation of officers. His Lodge has 
requeisted past rank for him and I so recommend 
to Grand Lodge. 

14. Because the by-laws of Phoenix Lodge, No. 535, 
Fonthill, were changed W. Bro. E. H. Treitz 
served half a month less than the statutory 
time for past rank. His Lodge has requested 
that Grand Lodge grant him the rank of Past 
]\Iaster. I so recommend. 

15. Because the regular meeting of Queen City 
Lodge, No. 552, Toronto, fell on New Yeai-'s Day, 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the installation of officers was held on January 
15, 1958. This meant that W. Bro. Tom 
Paveling served one week less than the statutory 
time for past rank since he laft that office on 
Januaiy 1, 1959. His Lodge has requested 
that he be granted the rank of Past Master and 
I so recommend to Grand Lodge. 

16. An urgent request has been received for the 
granting of past rank to Brother J. Russell 
Sweet of Hornepayne Lodge, No. 636. Brother 
Sweet sei^^ed as Worshipful j\Iaster of Home- 
payne Lodga from December, 1950, until a suc- 
cessor was installed in March, 1951. He had to 
resign as his employers, the Canadian National 
Telegi'aphs, transferred him to Sarnia at that 
time. A similar request was declined by M. 
Wor. Brother Hart on his behalf in 1952. 
Brother Sweet, since moving to Sarnia, has 
given invaluable semce to Tuscan Lodge, No. 
437, though he has never held an office in that 
Lodge. M.W. Bro. Hart states, in dealing with 
this case, "W. Bro. Sweet has been highly com- 
mended for his assistance to Tuscan Lodge, No. 
437, Sarnia. However, I do not believe that the 
circumstances warrant the recognition of two 
Past Masters for Homepayne Lodge in 1951." 

When Bro. Sweet resigned he was succeeded 
in office by Wor, B.ro. C. W. Worth who held the 
rank of Past Master at the time he became 
Master of Hoi'nepayne Lodge in March, 1951. 

In view of the fact tliat a Past Master finish- 
ed the year of 1951 and because of Brother 
Sweet's continued service and interest in the 
Craft, and his diligence while serving his Lodge 
as an officer, I now recommend that Grand 
Lodge grant the request of Hornepayne Lodge 
by conferi'ing the rank of Past Master on 
Brother J. Russell Sweet. 

17. Since the regular meeting of Scarboro Lodge, 
No. 653, fell on December 25th last year, a 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 19.59 51 

dispensation was issued to hold the same on 
December 22, 1958. Because of this the Master, 
Wotr, Bro. Albert S. Joyce, seirved three days 
less than the statutory time for past rank. His 
Lodge has requested that he be gi'anted the rank 
of Past Master and I so recommend to Grand 
Lodge. 

18. For reasons beyond the control of the Lodge, 
Woodland Lodge, No. 680, at Wawa, had to 
postpone the installation of officers from Sept- 
ember to their October meeting in 1957. Be- 
cause of this Wor. Bro. R. Jack Latimer has 
served one month less than the statutory time 
for past rank. His Lodge has requested that 
the rank of Past Master be gi-anted and I so 
recommend to Grand Lodge. 

19. Minden Lodge, No. 253 have petitioned for past 
ranik for the late Worshipful Bix)ther William 
Harry Irvine. Biiotheir Irvine was installed 
as Worshipful Master on December 2, 1958. He 
died on March 20, 1959. I iiecommend to Grand 
Lodge that past rank: be conferred on Brother 
Irvine, posthumously,

cated a new Hall on some of the visits. On others

VISITATIONS TO OTHER GRAND 
JURISDICTIONS 

It was quite impossible to accept all invitations 
that were received. The fact that we were invited 
to so many is an indication of the high regard in 
which we are held by our sister Grand I/odges. 
Several outstanding Masonic events were held this 
year and it was possible for us to be represented at 
some. I list those at which we were able to have 
representatives ;

HONORARY RANK 

It is a rare occasion for honorary rank to be 
conferred on any in our Grand Lodge. According- 
to the records this has not happened to any of our 
own members since 1925. For many years the 
late V.W. Bro. Ernest B. Thompson had acted as the 
Chairman of our Scrutineers and V.W. Bro. James 
W. Hamilton has acted as the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Credentials. All in Grand Lodge are fully 
aware of the wonderful contribution they have made 
to the Craft in the days that are past. It is with 
sincere regret that I did not make this recommend- 
ation one year ago. However, life contains too 
many of those regrets. I would now recommend 
that the honorary rank of Past Grand Senior 
Warden be conferred on our late Very Worshipful 
Brother Ernest B. Thompson, posthumously; and 
that the honorary rank of Past Grand Senior Warden 
be conferred on Very Worshipful Brother James W. 
Hamilton in recognition of valuable services render- 
ed to this Grand Lodge. 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

A session of Grand Lodge would not be com- 
plete without the Grand Master's Banquet. This 
year R.W. Brother. Dr. E. Robert Chable is our guest 
speaker. He is an outstanding orator and a de- 
voted Mason. I am sure he will bring us a real 
inspirational message. I am indebted to Most 
Worishipful Brother J. A. Heam the Chairaian of 
the Committee on Arrang-ements and to M. Wor. 
Bro. Maher, R. Wor. Bix). Dixon and R. W. Bro, 
Bailey who have so ably assisted in making the 
arrangements for this banquet. 

MASONIC COURTESIES 

During the year I have had many kindnesses 
shown me by the Brethren everywhere I travelled. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 59 

I wish to axjknowledg-e them and pass on my sincere 
thanks to the Masons I have met and sei'ved. Many 
Lodg^es have done me the honour of conferaing hon- 
orary membership on me. I am deeply grateful for 
these expressions of your confidence and respect. I 
isihall try to show my appreciation for your kindness. 
It has been a g^reat privilege to serve as your Grand 
Master and I thank you for the consideration and 
encouragement I received as I tried to do the job. 

CONCLUSION 

As the words go on the pages I can almost see 
the end of a term of office that has had many rich 
and rewarding experiences. I want to express my 
thanks to all who have assisted me in canying out 
my duties and responsibilities. To the Past Grand 
Masters and the Deputy Grand Master I can only 
say a sincere "THANK YOU" for ready help and 
assistance at all times. Tlie Craft owes you much 
and I hope to find a place among- your numbers 
about thirty-eig*ht hours from now. No Grand 
Master was better served by his District Deputy 
Grand Masters than I have been for the last two 
years. You will notice that this report contains 
no comments on discipline. I am sure that, in 
itself, is significant of the good work that is being 
done by our officers in the Districts. I am more 
than happy with the assistance that the appointed 
officers of Grand Lodge have given to Masonry. 
I thank you for your help and I hope you derived 
much pleasure from the opportunities you have had 
to sei've Masoniw this year. 

I want to pass on a special word of appreciation 
to the members of the Board of General Puiposes 
and particularly the Chairmen of the Committees. 
The Grand Master gets an opportunity to know how 
lucky he is whe^n he visits Grand Lodges where no 
Board exists. Grand Lodge is much indebted to 
you for the use of your talents and administrative 
abilities which you give so freely to Masonry. 

It is not a complete repoit without the com- 
mendations which are due the Grand Secretary and

his office staff. I want to thank the Grand Secre- 
tary for making the load as light as possible. May 
you and youi: staff be long spared to carry on j^our 
work. My personal wish is that before next ses- 
sion rolls around you will be housed in the new Grand 
Lodge Offices. I am reasonably certain that that 
will be true. 

Thus we wind up the administration term of the 
forty-eighth Grand Master. I have tried to give 
you my best effort and I thank you for the privilege 
of serving you. May I close with this Masonic 
Benediction : 

"May no strife disturb thy days, nor sorrow 
distuiib thy nights, and may the pillow of peace kiss 
thy cheek, and the pleasures of imagination attend 
thy dreams; and when length of years hath made 
thee tired of earthly joys, and the curtains of death 
close around the scene of thy existence, may the 
angels of God attend thy bed and take care that 
the expiring lamp of life shall not receive even one 
rude blast to hasten its extinction; and finahy may 
the blessing of God wash thee free from all impur- 
ities and prepa-re thee to enter into the land of 
everlasting happiness." 

Most cordially and fraternally, 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 

Grand Master.

APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER S ADDRESS 

At the conclusion of the Address it was moved 
by M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson, seconded by M.W. Bro. 
N, C. Hart, and carried: That a committee com- 
posed of all the Past Grand Masters present, with 
M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop as Chairaian, consider and 
repoit to Grand Lodge on the Grand Master's Ad- 
dress. The motion was put by the Deputy Grand 
Master, 

REPORT OF THE COIMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

To the Officers and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F, & 
A.M. of Canada in the Pro\dnce of Ontario. 

The Brethren ^^•ill observe that this Report is not 
addressed to the Grand Master, the reason being that Grand 
Lodge is now to decide, by adoption or non-adoption of your 
Committee's Report, whether the iiilings, decisions, and 
recommendations reported or made by the Grand Master 
in his Address are to be confirmed, approved, and adopted 
or not. When you return home, you will read the Address 
carefully, at your leisure, and you will enjoy reading it 
because it is a detailed report of a year's activities written 
by one who is an expert and experienced administrator. No 
theorist is our Gi-and Master but a practical and an efficient 
Grand Lodge Officer. 

You have heard him read his eloquent tribute to two 
distinguished Freemasons who, after rendering excellent 
service over a great many years, passed to the Grand 
Lodge Above in March last. Your Committee recommends 
that, complying with his request, past rank be conferred on 
the three brethren whom he appointed Grand Stewards 
during the year. 

Your Committee approves, of course, of the charitable 
donations made under the Grand Master's authority and 
includes in this approval the recent donation of One Thousand 
Dollai-s to the Lanark Relief Fund. Undobtedlv Grand 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 63 

Lodge will take Evergi^en Lodge No. 209 under its protecting 
wing. 

Is it not remarkable that, for various good reasons, no 
fewer than nineteen brethren were unable to preside over 
their Lodges for the full twelve months required to entitle 
them to rank as Past Master? We concur in the Grand 
Master's recommendations that Grand Lodge admit them to 
that rank. How gratifying it is to hear that during the 
year there were no incidents requiring disciplinaiy action! 
Perhaps we should present the Grand Master, symbolically 
at least, with a pair of white gloves! 

To the noble thirteen Lodges that have been recognized 
as being of the full age of one hundred yeai-s, your Com- 
mittee extends its congratulations and commends the Grand 
Master for his action in giving them pennission to wear 
gold braid. The Grand Master was present at the Centen- 
nial Celebrations of three Lodges; eight Grand Represent- 
atives were appointed; five new Lodges were instituted; 
five Lodges were constituted and consecrated; and nine new 
lodge premises were dedicated. Truly a year of activity, a 
year of expansion. 

But when you read the list of Visitations you will be 
amazed, as the members of your Committee have been, that 
the Grand Master could travel so widely without apparent 
exhaustion. It would seem that he has made an all-time 
record as a traveller. 

Your Committee concurs in the Grand Master's recom- 
mendation that honorary past rank as Grand Senior Warden 
be conferred on V.W. Bro. James W. Hamilton and posthu- 
mously on the late V.W. Bro. E. B. Thompson. In each 
case this honour has been well desen-ed, well earned, well 
merited. 

You have heard, and you will wish to read, the eloquent 
and inspiring Introduction and the equally mo\ing Con- 
clusion to the Address. As Most Worshipful Brother Harry 
L. Martyn completes his two-year term of office, he caiTies 
with him your Committee's cordial congratulations on the 
great success he has achieved and its best wishes for many 
years of good health in which to ser\'e Grand Lodge as a 
Past Grand Master. All he has reported in his Address 
is hereby confirmed and validated by Grand Lodge. 

With the highest regard, esteem, and affection for the 
Grand Master, this Report is respectfully submitted to Grand 
Lodge. 

Frank A. Copus, J. A. McRae, C. S. Hamilton. T. H. 
Simpson, J. P. Maher. N. C. Hart, J. A. Heam, W. L. Wright, 
and W. J. Dunlop, Chairman. 

On motion o-f M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, seconded 
by M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, the report was received 
and adopted.

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the ]\Iost Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 

and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 

of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 
Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to report having completed the continuous 
monthly audit of the accounts of the Grand Treas- 
urer and of the Grand Secretary for the year ended 
31st, j\Iay, 1959, and I have verified the statemejits 
submitted by the Grand Treasurer showing the Re- 
ceipts and Disbursements of the General and the 
Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds for 
the year ended 31st May, 1959. 

The Investment Securities of the General, Mem- 
orial and Semi-Centeinnial Funds, as set out in the 
respective Schedules accompanying the Grand Treas- 
urer's Report, were produced by the Canada Perm- 
anent Ti:ust Company for my inspection, I found 
them in order. 

I wish to extend my appreciation to the Grand 
Treasurer's Clerk and to the staff at the Office of 
the Grand Secretary for their co-opeiration during 
the audit procedure. 

All of which is fraternally submitted. 

H. FRANK VIGEON, C.A., 

Auditor. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 65 

GRAND TREASURER'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand i\Iaster, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario, 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren : 

It is my pleasure and my privilege to submit 
my Annual Report on the finances of Grand Lodge 
as shown in our books for the twelve-month period 
which ended on May 31st, 1959. The picture is a 
bright one. Tlie total amount of the financial 
resources of Grand Lodge has been increased, under 
careful and expert management, by $27,104.20. This 
is, I suggest, a satisfactoiy increase — not as large 
as a year ago, but still good. For this situation 
our gi'atitude is due to the Grand Secretary, who is 
a careful general manager, to the Chairman of the 
Grand Lodge Committee on Audit and Finance, 
whose guidance is always cheerfully given, to our ex- 
perienced Auditor, whose watchful eye misses noth- 
ing at all, and to the Grand Treasurer's Clerk who 
keeps the books always in perfect order. 

It would be a monotonous experience for you 
and for me if I were to read to you every detail of 
Receipts and Disbursements and no one could remem- 
ber them if they were read aJoud ; but I must depend 
on you to examine carefully, when you have time 
and opportunity, the financial statements w^hich you 
will find in the preliminary Proceedings and, later, 
in the complete Proceedings. You will find, for 
example, that Grand Lodge now has a backlog, in in- 
vestments and in cash, of $1,334,983.43; and you ^^ill 
observe that grants for benevolence, made from the 
General Fund, amounted to $59,699.75 and that from 
the Combined l^.Iemorial and Semi-Centennial Funds, 
the sum granted was $19,370.00. This total 
($79,069.75) for the relief of our Masonic dependents 
is slightly lower than last year's $84,977.00, but you 
may be assured that no desei-ving man, woman, or 
child was neglected in the slightest degi'ee by our 
kindly and ^\^se Supervisor of Benevolence for whose 
excellent sei*vice we are all gi'ateful. It must not 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

be f org-otten that our constituent Lodges contribute, 
in gieneial, almost as much for benevolence as does 
Grand Lodg-e. You will notice, among investments, 
the purchase of $85,000 of debentures of Masonic 
Holdings Coi-poration which I may call a subsidiary 
of Grand Lodge, org-anized for the purpose of financ- 
ing the construction and equipment of new Grand 
Lodge offices in Hamilton. It is expected that these 
debentures will pay five per cent interest. Of 
course we pr.opose to invest in more of these same 
debentures. 

You will all approve the donations made, by 
authority of the Grand jMaster, as follows : 

Ontario Society for Crippled Children $ 1,000.00 

Ontario Society for Retarded Children 500.00 

Boy Scouts' Association, Ontario 500.00 

Girl Guides' Association, Ontario 500.00 

Canadian Cancer Society 500.00 

Salvation Army 500.00 

To the Masonic Relief Association of the United 
States and Canada the sum of $463.50 was contiri- 
buted. 

Now may I set out, in full detail, the financial 
statements of the three Funds.

Following- the reading of his Repoit the Grand 
Treasurer advised the meeting that just recently 
he had I'eceived a letter from the Canada Permanent 
Trust Oompany. who were the Custodians of all of 
our securities held in the General, Memorial and Semi- 
centennial Funds, informing- him that they could, 
no longer be responsible for the protection of these 
seciu'ities, now in bearer foi'jn, against loss through 
break-in or robbery. So that the securities would be 
as fully pnotected as possible he had directed the 
Company to have them fully registered as to princi- 
pal and interest, as far as it was possible, in the 
name of Giiand Lodge, He hoped that his action was 
approved by the members. Theije was loud and 
general applause. 

Then on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by M.W. Bro. Dunlop, the Report and the 
Auditor's Repor-t were received and refen-ed to the 
Committee on Audit and Finance. 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT 

The Grand Secretary presented his report as 
follows : 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I am very pleased to be pennitted to present rny 
twenty-third annual report for the year ended May 
31st, 1959, containing' the usual Summary of Receipts 
from various sources placed in the General Fund; 
Details of Receipts in the General Fund and Ledger 
Balances as :at May 31st, 1959; a Summary of Re- 
ceipts for the year; Details of the Returns of Lodges 
as at May 31st, 1959; a summary of the Receipts 
and Payments to the Grand Treasurer on account 
of the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds; and a 
Statement of the Receipts and Disbursements on 
the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds Revenue 
Account. 

I have recorded, as an appendix to the Pro- 
ceedings, the details of the Returns of the 608 war- 
ranted Lodges as of December 31st, 1958. 

For seventeen years, I have been able to report 
a gain in membership, this year showing a net in- 
crease of 840, the smallest since 1943. Our total 
membership as of December Slst, 1958, has reached 
an all-tim.e high of 135,464 and we have, as of today, 
613 Lodges, of which five are under dispensation. 
Numerically, we nov/ i-ank as the eleventh larg-est 
Grand Lodge in the world. 

Death took 2633 of our members during the 
year, 203 more than last year. Resignations totalled 
1024, just 61 more than a year ago. Suspensions 
were up 18 to 864. But against such losses we 
record 4,114 initiations, down 246 ; 1,011 affiliations, 
down 59; and 240 restorations, up 33. 



TORONTO, ONTAEIO. 1959 75 

This year, as last year, we instituted five Lodges 
and constituted and consecrated five, all of which 
report the admission of many candidates of excellent 
quality. Still more new Lodges are required as the 
membership of so many of our Lodges is too large 
and unwiddy. 

We hope that by this time next year, we will 
be in our new offices about which you will hear 
more from M.W. Bro. Heam.

ation, I taJie pleasure in moving, seconded by M.W.

Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Pi-ovince of 
Ontai'io." Each begins, "Most Worshipful Sir and

pectfully and fraternally submitted." To save space

and end of each Report. 



102 GRAND LODGE OF CA^'ADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ALGOMA DISTRICT 

This past year as District Deputy Grand Master of 
Algoma has been an inspiration to me, the realization of my 
hopes and the culmination of my efforts in the advancement 
of Masonry. It was my privilge to act as District Super- 
visor of Masonic education for my predecessoi*, and the ex- 
perience proved to be of great assistance to me this year. 

The office of District Secretary was capably handled by 
Wor. Bro. Allan Perry, a Past Master of Eoyal Lodge, No. 
453, and the supervision of Masonic education was well looked 
after by Wor. Bro. Steward Knox, a Past Master of Port 
Arthur Lodge, No. 499. These two brethren visited all 
Lodges in the District with me and while the Secretary made 
all arrangements and kept records, the Supervisor of Educa- 
tion either delivered an address or brought an expert brother 
with him to advance the knowledge of Masonry. 

Our District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. David Mitchell, of Fort 
William Lodge, No. 415, was moved away early in December, 
and we were depi-ived of most of his services, which was un- 
fortunate for us, as we feel he would have made a tremendous 
contribution to the Craft. One of our experienced brethren, 
Bro. Rev. Russell Peden, of Shuniah Lodge, No. 287, very 
kindly filled in at times during the balance of the year. 
To these officers, I wish to express my personal thanks and 
am sure, the thanks of all district lodge members for their 
excellent work. 

At all Lodges, we were received with due and ancient 
respect. We found all books and records in excellent order, 
thanks to the diligent work of the lodge Secretaries. All our 
Lodges are flourishing with one eocception, and this particular 
one will require assistance in obtaining new lodge quarters. 

The three Port Arthur lodges combined forces to attend 
Divine Service at Trinity United Church, October 19th, where 
the District Chaplain was in charge and preached the sermon. 
Hornepayne Lodge members and visitors held their Church 
Seiwice "the following morning, after our _ official visit to 
them, in which it was our privilege to join. Connaught 
Lodge, No. 511, held their Annual Church Service on June 
21st, at First Fi-esbyterian Church in West Fort William. 

During the year, I presented seventeen life mem- 
berships, one Fifty Year Medal, and a great number of 
Master Mason Certificates. 

One of the year's highlights was a visit to Atikokan 
Lodge, of the Western District, in company with their Dis- 
trict Deputy, Rt. Wor. Bro. John B. Fraser, on the occasion 
of his official visit to my ovra Lodge, and was the guest 
speaker of the evening. 

At the end of November last, my good wife passed away 
very suddenly, and it was at this time, that I felt the great 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 10» 

power and support of Masonry and received the greatest as- 
sistance from my brethren. My duties of office were tem- 
porarily delayed, but proved a great help during the period 
following. 

The President and me-mbers of the Past Masters' Asso- 
ciation were of tremendous support during the year, and I 
hope that my e-fforts were of some assistance to them on 
their official visits. 

To all Masters, officers, and brethren, I wish to extend 
my thanks for their courteous reception and to express my 
entire satisfaction of the manner in which their meetings 
were conducted. 

ROY A. GUNN, D.D.G.M. 

BRANT DISTRICT 

To have represented the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Mastar in Brant District has been a great privilege, and an 
experience which I will remeniber all my life. The warm and 
cordial welcome I received in every Lodge shows the respect 
with which Grand Lodge is held by all brethren in the 
District. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Wm. H. Dilworth District Secre- 
tary; Bro. Rev. S. J. Pike, District Chaplain; and Wor. Bro. 
Oscar Simpson, Director of Masonic Education. These breth- 
ren are to be commended highly on the manner with which 
they discharged their important duties. 

I found the degree work as perfoi-med by the Lodges 
to be uniform and of a high calibre, which impressed the 
candidates with the highest ideals exemplified in Masonry 
in each degree. 

Brant District has an energetic Mast3rs', Past Masters' 
and Wardens' Association, which is responsible for a keen 
interest in Masonic Education. W. Bro. Len Taylor, of 
Brantford, President of the Association, is to be highly com- 
mended for the keen interest and the untiring effort he put 
forth, which did so much to make Masonic Education so inter- 
esting and instructive. It was due to the instigation of this 
Association that on three nights three different Lodges 
worked a First, Second and Third Decrree for instruction, and 
consti-uctive criticism was invited. These Lodges of Instruc- 
tion had large and enthusiastic attendances and were much 
appreciated. 

Eight of the fourteen Lodges held Divine Services, and a 
largely attended District Divine Service was held in the St. 
George United Church, under the direction of Bro. Rev. S. J. 
Pike. District Chaplain, whose theme was "God, the Creator". 
The Woodstock Masonic Choir, under the direction of V. Wor. 
Bro. J. W. Bryan, contributed greatly to the Service by its 



104 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

excellent rendition of "Eemember now Thy Creator", and 
other selections. The church was filled to the doors and 
chairs were plac&d in the aisles to accommodate the brethren 
and their families. The Women's Association served refrosh- 
ments after the Service. 

Burford Lodge, No. 106, held a centennial celebration on 
October 29th, 1958. A banquet was served in the Burford 
Fair Grounds Pavilion. A very large number of Masons from 
all over Ontario were present and spent a most enjoyable 
evening. An excellent entertainment was provided and many 
addresses and expressions of congratulations were tendered 
this fine old Lodge. Most Wor. Bro. Nelson C. Hart, Lon- 
don, gave an inspiring address. Four Lodges in the District 
Jiow have the honour to wear gold regalia. 

The District was saddened by the passing to The Grand 
Lodge Above of two P.D.D.G.M.s, Rt. Wor. Bro W. J. Feld- 
camp, of Ozias Lodge, No. 508, Brantford, and Rt. Wor. Bro. 
M. Hawley, of St. John's Lodge, No. 82, Paris. The&e breth- 
ren are sadly missed. 

No words of mine can express my grateful appreciation 
for the sympathy received by my family and myself from 
all Masons in the District on the occasion of the sudden pass- 
ing of my dear wife last March. I thank you from my heart. 

Masonry in Brant District is of long standing, but young 
and vigorous in its outlook. It has a glorious past and I 
look for even a more gloi-ious future. I thank all brethren 
for the respect accorded my office, and the warm hearted 
welcome I received everywhere in all Lodges. I humbly 
feel it was my greatest experience in Masonry to represent 
the Grand Master. 

S. E. E. WAIT, D.D.G.M. 



BRUCE DISTRICT 

As my year as District Deputy Grand Master in Bruce 
District draws to a close, I am acutely conscious of a deep 
abiding sense of gratitude to the brethren of this District for 
granting me the opportunity to further my Masonic knowl- 
edge, to broaden my concept of our great institution, and to 
serve in some small way the fraternity in this area. Humility 
and pride are normally considered contradictory terms, but 
they are two emotions' which must of necessity move every 
brother who has filled this high office. No one can be but 
humble-d from the moment he receives his obligation in the 
thought that he has been chosen to represent the head of our 
Craft and has been considered worthy by his brethren to dis- 
charge that most important duty, nor can he be but proud 
in the magnificent record of achievement of his District and 
of the whole fraternity. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 105 

I consider I was particularly fortunate in my choice of 
District Officers: Wor. Bro. T. E. Brant, District Secretary; 
Bro. Rev. R. R. Conner, District Chaplain, and V. Wor. Bro. 
J. N. H. Norton, District Supervisor of Masonic Education. 
Wor. Bro. Brant contributed materially to the success of all 
my official visits. All the books and records of each con- 
stituent Lodge were carefully examined by him and it is a 
source of satisfaction to repoi't that he found them to be in 
excellent order. On certain occasions, his helpful and kindly 
guidance wei-e- of substantial assistance to the individual 
Lodges. The financial condition of our Lodges appears to be 
on a sound foundation and it is gratifying to observe that 
many of our Lodges own their own premises. I was par- 
ticularly impressed by the condition of all the lodge buildings 
and furniture; they reflected the pride of the brethren in 
their Masonic home. 

Bro. Rev. R. R. Conner fulfilled his duties as District 
Chaplain in the highest tradition of our Order. He not only 
attended many of my inspections with me, but always dis- 
played a keen interest in the affairs of this District. Th& 
District Divine Service held in St. Paul's United Church, 
Walkerton, was very well attended, with almost all Lodges 
represented. The Masonic Choir and Quartette added greatly 
to the occasion, but the address of the District Chaplain was 
a "highlight of the year. Every brother in the Church left 
the Service a better Mason after listening to Bro. Conner. 

For some eight years, V. Wor. Bro. Norton has been 
District Supervisor of Masonic Education. The unselfish de- 
votion of this brother to the highest ideals of the Order 
reached its culm.ination in this his final year. Regardless of 
road conditons, distances, or the weight of many responsi- 
bilities, he attended all my visits and all the Schools of In- 
struction, save only when prevented by sickness or by the 
pressing emergencis of his private avocation. Bruce District 
will long remember the sterling character and valuable 
contributions of Bro. Norton. I would also acknowledge 
the support and encouragement given me by the brethren of 
Saugeen Lodge, Walkerton. On every visit a goodly repre- 
sentation from my o^vn Lodge was present to greet me. 

I was privileged to represnt this District at Northern 
Light Lodge, No. 93, in North Huron District on two occa- 
sions during the celebration of their hundredth anniversary,, 
once when our Grand Master was entertained and again when 
Wor. Bro. Judge Bushnell, of Detroit, addressed the brethren. 

The outstanding event of the year, however, was the visit 
on May 29th last, of our Grand Master, the Most Worshipful 
H. L. Martyn, who attended a banquet tendered to him by 
the brethren of this District at Walkerton. His address that 
evening was an inspiration which will live long in the minds of 
all who heard him and marked another milestone for this 



106 GRAJSTD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

District in its record of service to the Craft and this Com- 
munity. 

Finally, may I express my sincere appreciation to all 
whose co-operation and consideration so materially assisted 
me in my year of office. 

P. S. MacKENZIE, D.D.G.M. 

CHATHAM DISTRICT 

The past year has been a very rewardinsr and enjoyable 
one and a wondei-ful experience for me. To the Masters, 
Officers and Members of the fifteen Lodges of the District 
who made it so, I express my g-ratitude. I am especially 
grateful to the District Officers who so ably assisted me 
during the year. 

Wor. Bro. Vei-ne Nurse., District Secretary, accompanied 
TTi€ on all my official visits, performing his duties in a very 
capable manner. The records of each I<odge were carefully 
examined and found to be in good condition. Wor. Bro. Rev. 
S. E. Stevenson, Distri^'t Chaplain, and Rt. Wor. Bro. Lorno 
Elliott, Chairman of Masonic Education, accompanied me on 
most occasions. 

Early in September I nresented Grand Steward's Re- 
galia to V. Wor. Bro. Earl Rupert, of Baldloon Lodge, Wal- 
laceburg. 

I took part in the Constituting and Consecrating- of Bal- 
doon Lodge, No. 694. with Most Worshipful Bro. Harry L. 
Mart\Ti presiding. This was a snlendid occasion with over 
400 in attendance. Later I installed and invested the first 
officers of the Lodge. 

I officially visited evorv Lodge and am pleased to report 
that the dei^ree work was of hieh standard. I was impressed 
by the sincerity and understanding of the officers and mem- 
bers who took part in the work. On mv visit to Parthenon 
Lodge in Chatham I presented eierht Masonic Bibles to candi- 
dates who had nroved their work in the Third Degree and 
were receiving their aprons. I presented four Veteran Jubi- 
lee Medals, and one Past Master's Jewel during the year. 

The majority of the Lodees held Ladies' Nights, many of 
which Mrs. O'Neill and I attended. The friendliness and 
Tiospitality exhibited made these visits ve-ry pleasant. 

Most Lodges held Church Services which I attended when- 
ever possible. The Distri'^t Divine Service was held in Ruth- 
erford United Church on June 7th with more than 200 breth- 
ren in attendance. This was a thrilling occasion for m.e as 
this is the church which I attend. To accommodate the ca- 
pacitv crowd of wives and friends a P.A. system was installed 
ing ITie neighbouring Presbyterian Church and all enjoyed the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 107 

splendid Soivice. The Grand Chaplain, Rt. Wor. Rev. R. S. 
Skinner, of Harrow, gave a short address and the District 
Chaplain, Wor. Bro. Rev. S. E. Stevenson, delivered the 
sermon. 

Plans have been made by Florence Lodge, No. 390, for a 
dinner in my honour to be held in Florence Community Centre 
on June 17th. Masonic brethren of the District and the-ir 
wives have been invited to the banquet. Bro. Rev. H. Rod- 
ney, of St. Thomas, will be guest speaker. 

It has been a privilege to serve my brethren and I would 
express my thanks for the co-operation and understanding 
that has been accorded me by the members and officers 
throughout the District. 

WM. OTTO O'NEILL, D.D.G.M. 

EASTERN DISTRICT 

As this is the close of my year as D.D.G.M. for Eastern 
District, it is my pleasure to submit this report of the year's 
activities. It has been a busy year and one that will provide 
many pleasant memories for the future. 

I appointed Rt. Wor. Bro. D. S. Mcintosh as my District 
Secretary, and Wor. Bro. Rev. Robertson Millar as District 
Chaplain. In these two appointments I was very fortunate, 
as they were a tower of strength in planning and carrying 
on th© work. 

We visited all nineteen Lodges in the District, and I am 
very happy to report the good condition of Masonry in East- 
ern District. The District Secrotai'y reports all records and 
finances in good condition. 

The Masters and officers carried on their work in a very 
dignified and creditable manner, and all applicants for ini- 
tiation were well screened to ensure that only the right ma- 
terial would be used in the Lodge. 

On November 7th in Lancaster Lodge. No. 207, the 
R.C.M.P. Degree Team from Ottawa raised a member of 
Lancaster Lodge who is with the R.C.M.P. We were all 
very much impressed with the dignity and precision in which 
the work was done. These brethren are indeed a credit to 
Masonry, and an honour to the organization to which they 
belong. Also in Alexandria Lodge, No. 439, on March 4th, 
there w^ere two MacLeods initiated into Masonry and all 
chairs were filled with MacLeods. 

There were two dedications of lodge rooms. The first, 
of Excelsior Lodge, No. 142, Morrisburg, on October 17th, 
under the direction of Rt. Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, D.G.M.; and 
the second, of Wales Lodge, No. 458, on May 9th, under the 
direction of Most Wor. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, G.M. Both 



108 GRAiND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

these ceremonies were very impressive and also largely at- 
tended by brethren from all over the. District. 

Several Lodges in the District hoM Ladies' Nights, 
Avhich Mrs. McDermid and I were privileged to attC'nd, en- 
joying the hospitality extended on these occasions. 

Several Lodges held Church Services which were well 
attended. We had our District Church Service in St. An- 
drew's United Church, Martintown, conducted by our Dis- 
trict Chaplain, Wor. Bro. Rev. Robertson Millar. We had 
betvv-een 450 and 500 Masons in attendance, and also a good 
attendance of friends of the. Masonic fraternity. Masons in 
Eastern District are realizing the importance of the District 
Church Service., and interest and attendance are steadily in- 
creasing. 

I can report that Masonry in Eastern District is in splen- 
did condition. The Wor. Masters and officers are carrying 
out their duties with honor and dignity, and are holding fast 
to our ancient landmarks. 

KENNETH McDERMID, D.D.G.M. 

FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

To have served as the District Deputy Grand Master in 
the Frontenac District has been a challenging and, quite 
frankly, a very pleasant expei'ience. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Bruce Guthrie as the District 
Secretary, and he has fulfilled his duties with the utmost 
skill and devotion. Wor. Bro. Rev. R. A. McCrea was ap- 
pointed District Chaplain, and Rt. Wor. Bro. T. J. Donnelly, 
supervisor of Masonic Education. 

The eighteen Lodges were each visited officially once, 
^nd certain other visits were made on special occasions. The 
courtesy extended to me and the warmth of the receptions 
attested to the respect of the brethren for the Grand Master's 
personal representative and for me personally 

The work in the various Lodges was performed with 
dignity and skill, and I have no hesitaton in saying that 
Masonry in Frontenac District is in a very thriving condition. 

A feature which is worthy of special mention is the in- 
terest being shown in improving and beautifying lodge 
premises. Two Lodges have recently provided themselves 
with new Temples, and others have acquired banquet rooms 
and have redecorated. These activities, usually accomplished 
in spite of limited resources, are examples of the spirit of 
sacrifice and devotion which prevails among the brethren 
of the District. 

During the year, Albion Lodge, No. 109, Harrowsmith, 
attained the one hundredth year of its existence, and on 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1959 109 

November 23rd and 24th the event was suitably commemor- 
ated. On Sunday, Nove-mber 23rd, the Worshipful Master, 
George M. Spafford, and members of his Lodge, held a Di- 
vine Service in tho United Church, Harrowsmith. The speaker 
was V. Wor. Bro. Rev. Donald Vatcher, Chaplain of Cata- 
raqui Lodge, Kingston. On Monday evening, November 24th, 
ce-ntennial ceremonies were held in the lodge room. 

The presentation of the gold regalia and the dedication of 
a. new Volume of The Sacred Law were made by Most Wor. 
Bro. John A. McRae. The Volume of The Sacred Law was 
the gift of Wor. Bro. Laverno Kerr in memory of his father, 
the late V/or. Bro. Thos. Kerr. The members of the Watson 
family presented new Altar Square and Compasses in memory 
of the five late Bros. Watson who had all been Past Masters 
of Albion Lodge. Most Wor. Bro. McRae was the speaker 
at the banquet. 

The Masonic Education work was highlighted by a Dis- 
trict Lodge of Instruction in the Masonic Templo, Kingston, 
on April 27th. The Master Mason Degree was exemplified 
and Rt. Wor. Bro. Mo'son Cain kindly attended and acted as 
instructor. The. meeting was well attend?d and I wish to 
thank Rt. Wor. Bro. Donnelly for his efforts which were 
largely responsible for the success of the undortaking. 

A District Divine Service was held in Chalmers United 
Church, Kingston, at which were honored by the presence 
of the Grand Chaplain, Rt. Wor. Bro. R. S. Skinner. There 
we.re about 300 Masons present and the District Chaplain is 
to be congratulated on the Sei'vice. 

On November 8th, I had the pleasure of accompanying- 
the. Deputy Grand Master on a special visit to Union Lodge, 
Napanee. Rt. Wor. Bro. Pitts' address on that occasion was 
an inspiration to the. many Masons in attendance. The won- 
derful support given me during the- year by the Past Grand 
Lodge officers is deeply appreciated. 

TALMAGE H. STONE, D.D.G.M. 

GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

This report brings to a close, somewhat, the most interest- 
ing, pleasurable, instructive and inspiring year of my life. I 
sincerelv hope that I have givon more than I have received. 
If this ts so — much credit must be given to my District 
Secretary and District Chaplain. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Harry Morre.n as my District 
Secretary, Bro. Rev. John Riddell, the District Chaplain, and 
Wor. Bro. F. L. Crowe as Supervisor of Masonic Education. 
Wor. Bro. Morren accompanied me on every visit and the 
Chaplain missed but two. 



110 GRAND LODGE OF CANAJDA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Together, the Secretary and I drew up a schedule, of 
visits which was followed throughout my term. Wor. Bro. 
Morren showed a keen interest in every visit and brought a 
real inspiration to each and every Secretary. He reports 
that the books and records of the lodges are in a splendid 
condition; the general financial structure of the lodges are 
in good order and insurance s&emed adequate. 

My District Chaplain was a most interesting travelling 
companion and a tower of strength. He spoke at several 
of the banquets which followed our visits. He encouraged, 
all lodges to hold a Divine Service. His work culminated in 
our District Divine- Service. There was a goodly representa- 
tion from each of our 20 lodges. The 180 Masons who were 
present at St. Giles Church, Barrie, enjoyed the inspiring ad- 
dress delivered by the Chaplain, entitled "Masonry and the 
Space Age". 

One of the many highlights of my term occurred at the 
start of my year. This was the centenary celebration of my 
Mother Lodge, Corinthian, No. 96. Of this celebration two 
eve>nts stand out in my mind. First, the banquet at which. 
R.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, D.G.M., was the eloquent speaker. 
Secondly, the "Master's Night" when the chairs and all the 
floor work of the degree were performed by the Masters of 
the Lodges of the District. It is a pleasure to report that R.W. 
Bro. Pitts, D.G.M., was again in my district about a month, 
later. This time he assisted greatly in the success of the 75th 
anniversary of Caledonia Lodge, Midland. 

On each official visit I endeavoured to promote Masonic 
Education. I suggested that at each regular meeting a five 
to ten-minute talk be given. This talk could be based on the 
articles prepared by the Grand Lodge Committee or from the 
Manual on Masonic Education. It was a delight on two occa- 
sions when on special visits to listen to such. These talks 
were delivered while the candidate was being prepared. I 
commend this period to all Lodges. From the lodge notices 
received, I read that most Lodges had committees on Masonic 
education and there were times they justified their exist- 
ence. Georgian District is fortunate to be well supplied with, 
brethren who are well read and splendid speakers. My fer- 
vent hope is that they are kept busy. 

The condition of Masonry in this District is of very high 
calibre. The work is performed in a very friendly, sincere 
manner. The officers appear not only to know their work 
but they express it with meaning. This will be developed 
to even a greater degree through the efforts of the Masonic 
Officers' Association of the District under the leadership of 
Wor. Bro. Gord. Mallion, of Tottenham. 

I wish to express my gratitude to all those brethren who 
willingly assisted me in every way possible. From the greet- 



TOROJJTO, ONTARIO. 1959 111 

ings and courtesies I received, I know Grand Lodge is re-vered 
and honoured in Georgian District. 

GEORGE G. CALDWELL. D.D.G.M. 

GREY DISTRICT 

To have beon District Deputy Grand Master for Grey 
District during the past year has been a wonderful experi- 
ence. My year of office has been made pleasant by the sin- 
cere co-operation and sympathetic understanding of the Lodges 
in the District and the cordial and gracious reception accord- 
ed me on my official visit to each of the twelve Lodges was 
most gratifying. Due respect was paid the Grand Master 
and all Grand Lodge Officers on each visit. The work was 
carried out according to the ritual, as closely as was human- 
ly possible. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Wm. G. Ellison, District Secretary, 
Bro. Rev. A. H. Harrison, District Chaplain, and Bro. W. W. 
Graham, Supervisor of Masonic Education. These brethren 
were in attendance at most of my visits and I thank them 
for the support given me, espacially the District Secretary, 
as he has given me every assistance possible and reports thac 
the Lodges in the District are in good condition financially and 
that the books are kept in a very efficient manner. I was 
pleased to note that talks were being given on Masonic Edu- 
cation, but too often by Past Masters and not by Master 
Masons or others. 

On my official visit to North Star Lodge, Owen Sound, I 
presented Bro. H. C. Irwin with his Veteran's Jubilee Medal ia 
appreciation of fifty years' service to the Craft. 

Hiram Lodge, No. 490, Markdale, celebrated its Fiftieth 
Anniversary in November. The guest speaker was Rt. Wor. 
Bro. H. A. McCauley, and during the evening my own Lodge 
presented me with a Masonic Bible, which was much appre- 
ciated. In March, when on my official visit to Hiram Lodge, 
No. 490, I was privileged to take part in the initiation of my 
grandson, Lee Bradey. His father, Wor. Bro. J. E. Bradey, 
presided for the initiation, at which ceremony three genera- 
tions of the Bradey family took part. 

A goodly number of blood donors have been registered 
throughout the district as a walking Blood Bank to be on call 
by the various hospitals in the districts. 

At a banquet in Walkerton, Bruce District, which was held 
in honour of the M.W. The Grand Master, Bro. Harry L. 
Martyn, who was the chief speake-r of the evening, I was 
privileged to reply to the toast to "the Visitors". 

A District Divine Service was held in Durham Anglican 
Church on June 7th, with a good attendance at which the 



112 GRAND LOOGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

District Chaplain was assisted by Rt. Wor. Bro. Rev. W. M. 
Lee., of Alliston, who delivered a very impressive sermon. 

I wish to thank the Grand Master and my brethren for 
the wonderful honour they have bestowe-d on me, and I hope, 
from a very humble and thankful heart, that I have con- 
tributed to the- well-being and advancement of our beloved 
Fraternity. 

RAN BRADEY, D.D.G.M. 

HAMILTON DISTRICT "A" 

It has been indeed a pleasure to serve as D.D.G.M. for 
the past year. The warm welcome and loyal support given 
me by every Lodge in the District certainly show that the 
Grand Master and Grand Lodge are held in high esteem by 
the brethren. 

Wor. Bro. W. J. B. Kay, the District .Secretary, accom- 
panied me on all of my official visits. On examination of the 
books of the various Secretaries and Treasurers of the 
Lodges, he highly commended them on the efficient manner 
in which the books were kept. 

Masonic Education, under the leadership of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
W. L. Somerville and his committee, held three successful 
educational meetings during the year. Each degree was dis- 
cussed. We were fortunate to have Rt. Wor. Bro. B. B. 
Foster, Chainnan of Masonic Education, with us at one of our 
meetings. These meetings were well attended and 
were very interesting. I would like to suggest that possibly 
more help might be given to each individual Lodge by the 
Supervisor of Masonic Education or one of his committee to 
give the Lodge guidance on their individual meetings on 
Masonic Education. 

Wor. Bro. Rev. H. G. Lowry, District Chaplain, was able 
to be with me on several of my visits. Many Divine Services 
were held and attendance at these was fair, but certainly 
could stand a great deal of improvement. Burlington Lodge, 
No. 165, had the ple-asure of having Rt. Wor. Bro. the Rev. 
Skinner, Grand Chaplain, as the guest speaker at their regu- 
lar meeting in May. 

Mrs. Wright and I attended a great many At Homes and 
quite frequently we had the pleasure of having the company 
of Rt. Wor. Bro. Kemp and his wife from Hamilton "B". At 
one of these Ladies' Nights, I noticed two tables with just 
ladies. On inquiry, I was told they were widows of deceased 
brethren who each year received a complimentary ticket. 
This, I thought, was certainly a nice gesture on the part of 
the Lodge. 

A great many fraternal visits are exchanged between. 
American and Canadian lodg<es. I had the pleasure of attend- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 11$ 

ing some of these, and they seem to be very popular with 
the bi'ethren. 

Several Fifty Year Medals wore presented to brethren 
during the year, and to these men we certainly owe a debt 
of gratitude for their long association in Masonry. 

The Masters and Wardens and Past Masters have very 
active organizations in Hamilton Districts "A" and "B". 
Eligible members for both of these organizations should give 
them their full support. 

The work in each of the nineteen Lodges was conducted 
in a very capable manner. I noticed a great many doing 
work besides officers and Past Masters, which is very good 
for Masonry. Attendance at our meetings could certainly be 
increased, and Masters should do their best to see that the 
brethren are out of the banquet room shortly after 11 o'clock. 

I cannot help but mention here that the membe-r or mem- 
bers responsible for starting a brother on the climb to the 
Master's chair should use great care in selecting the candi- 
date and should keep foremost in his or their own mind that 
some day that junior officer may be Wor. Master of the 
lodge. 

D. K. WRIGHT, D.D.G.M. 

HAMILTON DISTRICT "B" 

Masonry in Hamilton District "B" has had another suc- 
cessful year with keen interest being shown by officers and 
members of all the Lodges with a slight increase in attendance 
as compared with previous years, which speaks well for the 
future. 

I visited officially on behalf of the Grand Master, all 20 
Lodges comprising this District and I have witnessed the 
degree work of the various officers with much satisfaction. 
The exemplification of the work has been carried out with the 
sincerity and dignity that makes our ritual most impressive 
and I cannot but feel that the various candidates have been 
greatly impi*essed. 

I have found that Masonic Education is carried on in 
all the lodges in one form or anothe-r and the Committees 
on Masonic Education are making a worth-while effort to 
increase the interest in this most important work. 

There were two Divine Services held during the year by 
the combined Hamilton Districts unde-r the auspices of the 
Masters' and Wardens' Associations; also many Lodges have 
held their own Services. However, it is regrettable that these 
meetings were not more largely attended as unfortunately 
this reflects adversely on our fraternity. 



114 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

There have been several outstanding events in the Dis- 
trict during the past year: 

On Friday, October 10th, Most. Wor. Bro. T. H. Simpson, 
representing the Most Wor. Grand Master, presided at the 
Ceremony of Constituting and Consecrating the new Lodge 
in our District — The Thomas Hamilton Simpson Lodge, No. 
692, which was largely attended by Present and Past Grand 
Lodge Officers and I am sure that this impressive ceremony 
will live long in the memories of all those fortunate enough 
to be present. 

On Thui-sday, October 30th, assisted by a number of 
Grand Lodge Officers, I installed the first officers of that 
Lodge and one can already see a great future for this new 
Lodge which bears the name of one of our most distinguished 
brethren. 

At the regular meeting in November of St. Andrew's 
Lodge, No. 62, Caledonia, while paying my official visit, I 
presented to Very Wor. Bro. Harrison Arreil, Q.C., his 60 
Year Pin and congratulated him also on being the oldest 
active Crown Attorney in Ontario. 

At the regular meeting of Acacia Lodge, No. 61, on 
January 9th last. Most Wor. Bro. T. Hamilton Simpson had 
the great honour of installing his son as Worshipful Master 
and the large attendance at that meeting was a great tribute 
to him. Again, on my official visit to the same Lodge on Feb- 
ruary 13th, I had the pleasure of presenting to Brother W. 
F. Johnson his Fifty Year Medal. These brethren who have 
been so honoured are to be warmly congratulated. 

The social side of Masonry has been well taken care 
of at the various Lodge Ladies' Nights or At-Homes and 
both Mrs. Kemp and I have received many kindnesses and 
courtesies, not only from the Lodges in my own District but 
also from many in Hamilton "A" District, where it has been 
my privilege to fraternize with Rt. Wor. Bro. Donald Wright 
of that District. 

I wou'd like to gratefully acknowledge the assistance so 
readily given me by the District Officers which I appointed, 
and the many kindnesses from the Past Masters' Association 
and the Masters' and Wardens' Association. 

This has been a most memorable year to me and I sin- 
cerely appreciate the opportunity of sei-ving in this capacity. 

STEPHEN G. K. KEMP, D.D.G.M. 

LONDON DISTRICT 

As an introductory remark I venture the following: The 
great thing that links' brethren together in Masonry is the 
fact that wa are all builders. "For we are labourers together 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 115 

with God: Ye are God's husbandry, Ye are God's building." 
I Corinthians, 3-9. 

The materials with which we labour are constituent ele^ 
ments of every human being, and our purpose is to know how 
to use the materials to construct temples of the mind and 
soul, which will be pleasing to the eyes of the Great Archi- 
tect. For this work cei'tain essentials are preliminary to suc- 
cess. We must have faith in each other, confidence in the 
success of our efforts as long as they are rightly directe-d. 

It is the hope that the following humble essay may serve 
in some slight degree to place before you the condition of 
Masonry in London District. Whatever I may say on the 
subject will naturally be incomplete. 

Inspired by the enthusiasm and devotion displayed by my 
predecessors, the brethren have captured a new sense of loy- 
alty and purpose, which is evidenced throughout every de-part- 
ment of the work. 

The care, protection and maintenance of our Masonic 
Temples, lodge rooms, furniture and jewels occupy a promi 
nent place in the consideration of the Worshipful Masters and 
brethren, and is reflected in the continuing improvements 
being made throughout the District. 

The interest and enthusiasm of the brethren, particularly 
our new brethren is being encouraged through careful and 
well planned meetings in general, and the high quality of 
ritualistic work in particular, bringing credit to the Worship- 
ful Masters, and officers, who at all times give due considera- 
tion to our regnlations. It is good to note that 
the Worshipful Masters, in planning prC'sentation of degrees, 
provide an opportunity for the Past Masters and bi-ethren 
of the Lodge to share in the experience of active participa- 
tion in the ceremonies. This not only actively engages the 
valuable talents of our Past Master but also provides an 
avenue of development for the brethren, some of whom may 
one day assume the gavel of his office. 

In an effort to stimulate attendance in our Lodges, con- 
siderable attention is given to the arranging of Roll Call 
and Memorial Services, all members' degree teams, educa- 
tional programmes of a question and answer type, with all 
members given an opportunity to participate, and fraternal 
visits among the Masonic Lodges of the District and surround- 
ing area. 

The brethren of London District are most grateful to 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Molson Cain who gave generously of his time 
and talents in presenting a most infonnative and stimulating 
District Lodge of Instruction based on the Entered Apprentice 
Degree. 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA AN^NUAL COMMUNICATION 

We acknowledge with gratitude the untiring efforts of 
our District Educational Committer at this and many other 
meetings they arranged and conducted. Realizing the value 
of Masonic Education many of our Lodges have their own 
committee, and often devote a portion of their meetings to 
this work. 

Our District Ourc^" Ser\nce was held in St. James West- 
minster Church; a cordial and fraternal welcome was extend- 
ed to the brethren, their families and friends by our District 
Chaplain and Rector, Bro. the Rev. Canon H. E. Merrifield, 
assisted by Very Wor. Bro. Rev. Walter Kite-ley, P.A.G. 
Chap'ain, and Bro. the Rev. Cannon A. A. Trumper. The 
Church was well filled and a very in.sr>iring sermon was de- 
livered by Rt. Wor. Bro. Rev. R. S. Skinner, Grand Chaplain. 

Many of our Lodges held Church Sei-vices_ during the 
year and we commend our Grand Chaplain, District Chaplain 
and Worshipful Masters for promoting this important aspect 
of Masonry. 

We record, with sincere appreciation, the splendid work 
of the London Blood Donors' Sei-vice Committee, and those who 
supported this worthwhile cause. In the field of benevolence, 
the brethren have spread much happiness, comfort and encour- 
agement through their many visits to our brethren, who by 
reason of age or illness were unable to attend their Lodge. 

The evening of March 25th will long remain in the 
memory of the brethren who, on that occasion, had the pleas- 
ure of attending a reception in honour of our Grand Master, 
Most Wor. Bro. H. L. Martj-n. The Grand Master's address, 
together with his genial personality and kindly greetings, 
made a lasting impression on the brethren. 

In the office of District Deputy Grand Master, a number 
of Masons were employed. I refer to Bro. Rev. Canon H. E. 
Merifield, District Chaplain; Wor. Bro. Robert Cater, Dis- 
crict Supervisor of Masonic Education; Wor. Bro. Leo Allen, 
District Secretary. These brethren, amid duties and respon- 
sibilities to church and office, served their Masonic office 
most faithfully. Their co-oneraton, assistance and kindnesses 
I shall ever remember. Their kindly manner and sterling 
qualities won for them our highest esteem and gratitude. 

As the sands in the glass of time announce the close of 
my year, I again record mv heartfelt thanks for the honor 
accorded me, and trust my stewardship has proved worthy of 
your confidence.

MUSKOKA DISTRICT 

As District Deputv Grand Master for Muskoka District 
my year commenced by attending the Masonic funeral of 
my immediate predecessor, the late Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 117 

Minns. His passing to the Grand Lodge Above so shortly 
after relinquishing office was deeply felt by all brother 
Masons of this District and members of Grand Lodge. This, 
coupled with the decease- soon thereafter of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Thomas Gravette, of Golden Rule Lodge, brought sadness to 
a year which otherwise was very successful and stimulating. 

My appointment of Wor. Bro. J. J. Hogarth as District 
Secretary, and Bro. Rev. N. Thomas as District Chaplain 
proved very popular and they were of great assistance to me. 
T officially visited all eight Lodges in the District and W. 
Bro. Hogarth made a careful check of the records of each 
and found all to be in good order and the Lodges to be in 
good financial standing. My visits were all well attended 
and I took every opportunity to speak on different phases of 
the practical application of Masonry. The general condition 
of Masonry in this District is good and the officers are well 
versed in their work. It v\'as felt, however, that some im- 
provement in the general average attendance in some 
Lodges could be encouraged and that a Lodge of Instruction 
might be suggested. 

The highlight of my year came with the reception of the 
Most Worsliipful the Grand Master, H. L. Martyn, and the 
Dedication by him of the New Temple of Muskoka Lodge, 
No. 360, on May 23rd. This Lodge is to be highly compli- 
mented on their fine building and the efforts of its members 
■which have gone into its construction. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association were fortun- 
ate to have Rt. Wor. Bro. Rev. R. S. Skinner, Grand Chaplain, 
attend a banquet; his address was interesting and informative. 
This Association gained much encouragement and a new out- 
look from this meeting. 

I am pleased to i-eport the presentation of the 
Fifty Year Medal to Rt. Wor. Bro. W. R. Dixon, of Algon- 
quin Lodge, who is a very deserving Mason. 

The District Church Service was held on June 21st at 
St. James' United Church, Parry Sound, at which time the 
District Chaplain conducted the Service. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the many Masons in this 
District who have done so much towards making my year of 
office so very pleasant as well as contributing towards 
the well-being and advancement of Masonry. 

F. C. POWELL, D.D.G.M. 

NIAGARA DISTRICT "A" 

It is with pleasure that I submit my report on my work 
daring 1958 and 1959 for Niagara District "A". 

During my term of office, I have paid an official visit 
of inspection to each of the fourteen Lodges in this District. 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On all but two occasions degrees were- conferred, all three 
being observed during the term. I have also unofficially 
visited all Lodges, often being invited to attend special 
events — Past Masters — Charter Members — Visiting 
Lodges, etc. Of special interest was the evening of Sept. 9th 
when St. George's Lodge, No. 15, honoured two members, 
the Grand Wardens — R.W. Bro. E. L. James and R.W. 
Bro. J. B. Sainsbury. 

I arranged for fourteen Past Grand Lodge Officers to 
assist M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop to institute Grantham Lodge 
at Port Dalhousie on Sept. 29th. The officers and members 
are most enthusiastic; the Lodge is flourishing and hopeful 
of being granted a Warrant at the next Annual Communica- 
tion of Grand Lodge. 

Of particular interest to me, as a member of Maple 
Leaf, No. 103, was that Lodge's Centennial Dinner and meet- 
ing on October 17th. Many visitors shared in e.njoying a fine 
address by R.W. E. C. McCullagh, Past Grand Chaplain. 

The highlight of my year was the visit of the Grand 
Master to Niagara Districts 'A' and 'B', on Jan. 12th. M.W. 
Bro._ Martyn gave a most interesting address and we were 
privileged to welcome many other Grand Lodge Officers. 

It has been gratifying to note that the trend to smaller 
lodge attendance seems to have been checked. I firmly 
believe this can be accomplished by using Masonic Education 
to re-awaken interest in our ritual and philosophy. W. Bro. 
W. W. MacDonald, District Supei-visor of Masonic Education, 
has completed a most constructive year and the Masters' and 
Wardens' Association is to be complimented for securing R.W. 
Bro. M. Cain on two occasions to exemplify and explain our 
ritual and teachings. 

All Lodges have attended Divine Services, that for the 
St. Catharines Lodges being observed as a District Service. 
An increase in attendance has led me to hope that I have, 
had some success in my aim to emphasize that Masonry is not 
a substitute for the established Church and that all Masons 
should be good chui'chmen. Bro. Rev. J. Newman served 
well as District Chaplain. 

I am most grateful for the many kindnesses and cour- 
tesies shown to me, particularly those shared with my wife, 
the District Secretary, W. Bro. H. W. Ballantyne and Mrs. 
Ballantyne. All Lodges held Ladies' Nights and we were 
honoured guests on all occasions. We have also enjoye-d 
many unofficial events with the Masons of the District and 
their ladies. 

Masonry continues to flourish in Niagara "A". Member- 
ship continues to increase; attendance improves; the-work is 
of high calibre; arrears of dues are, generally speaking, rea- 
sonable, and most lodge rooms are in good condition. I trust 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 119 

that I have contributed, in some small way to this happy 
condition and that my work has merited "the approval of 
Grand Lodge and my brethren of Niagara "A". If I have 
been successful in the discharge of my dutie-s, it is largely 
due to the assistance and support of Past Grand Lodge Of- 
ficers, the Masters and particularly the District Secretary, 
W. Bro. Ballantyne, who has been a tower of strength during 
a most strenuous but truly rewarding year. 

A. W. RUSSELL, D.D.G.M. 

NIAGARA DISTRICT "B" 

To have served as D.D.G.M. for the year 1958-59 has 
been one of great satisfaction and a sincere pleasure. 
The cordial and gracious reception which I have received 
from the fourteen Lodges in this District has been an inspira- 
tion and a revelation of the great esteem and loyalty the 
brethre.n have for the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Cecil N. Lundy as District Secre- 
tary, Bro. Rev. John Kitchen as District Chaplain, and V. Wor. 
Bro. Wm. Dimond as District Supervisor of Masonic Educa- 
tion. I am deeply indebted to these brethren for their loyalty 
and support by their attendance with me on all my official 
and unofficial visits which I paid to all Lodges in this 
District. I wish to commend all the Lodge Secretaries in the 
District upon the fine manner in which the District Secre- 
tary found their minutes and records. 

Many of the Lodges held their Annual Ladies' Night 
which my wife and I, accompanied by the District Secretary 
and his wife, had the pleasure of attending these enjoyable 
events. 

The brethren of Niagara "B" and I joined with Rt. Wor. 
Bro. A. Russell, D.D.G.M. and the brethren of Niagara "A" 
at a dinner and reception in honor of the Most Worshipful, 
the Grand Master, which was held in St. Catharines in Feb- 
ruary of this year. The evening will be long remembered 
hy the brethren of both Niagara 'A' and 'B' for the inspir- 
ing address of the Grand Master. 

The Masters' and Wardens' Association have had an- 
other successful year, with the holding of two largely attend- 
ed meetings, one in Fort Erie and the other in Welland. 
These meetings we-re highlighted by an outstanding address 
on Masonic Education. 

It is encouraging to note the continuing increasing in- 
terest which is being show by the younger members in Ma- 
sonic Education. While all the Lodges in the District have set 
up Masonic Education Committees, my District Supervisor of 
Education has been very pleased to have been given the 
opportunity by the Masters of all the Lodges on each of my 



120 r,R.\ND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL OOMMUNIOATION 

visits, to address a few remarks to the brethren in general 
and to the Masonic Education Committees in particular. 

The increasing number of brethren attending the Annual 
Church Services of the various Lodges is most gratifying. 
The District Service was held in Lundy's Lane United Church, 
Niagara Falls, on May 17th. Bro. Rev. John Kitchen, Dis- 
trict Chaplain, arranged the Service and delivered the sermon. 
He was assisted by Rev. V. Fiddes, Minster of the Church. 
The nearly two hundred Masons of this District who attend- 
ed this service, along with myself, are particularly grateful 
to the members of the St. Catharines Masonic Choir who as- 
sisted in the musical portion of the Sei-vice. 

In conclusion, I am pleased to report that Masonry in 
Niagara District "B" is in very good condition. On all my 
official as well as the many unofficial visits which I have 
paid to each of the Lodges, I have found the affairs and 
business of each Lodge being conducted in a very commend- 
able manner. The conferring of the degi-ees are being car- 
ried out in an excellent manner, observing a strict adherence 
to our Ancient Landmarks and Constitution at all times. 

It has been a privilege for me to have served the 
brethren and I would like to express my sincere apprecia- 
tion for the grand co-operation which I received during the 
past year, which I shall always cherish as I continue in my 
efforts to serve Freemasonry to the best of my ability. 

H. HIGGINS, D.D.G.M. 

NIPISSING EAST DISTRICT 

As another Masonic year draws to a close, it is gratify- 
ing to be able to report that Freemasonry is in very good 
hands in this District. 

Each of the eight Lodges were officially visited, and I 
was indebted to, and grateful for, the company of my District 
Secretary, District Chaplain, and the Immediate Past Master 
of my own Lodge, on all of my inspections. 

My reception at each Lodge was most friendly, and I 
found little to criticize in the performance of the work. It 
was indead a good sign to see so many junior officers taking 
an active part in the rendering of the vv'ork of the degrees. 
It reflects credit on the senior officers and Past Masters for 
their interest in maintaining the high standard of perform- 
ance. 

Masonic Education is progressing slowly but thoroughly, 
and I have tried to point out, at each inspection, how very 
necessary it is to the present and future well-being of our 
Craft, that the brethren be well versed in the esoteric, and 
also in the traditional and historic work of the Craft. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 121 

My District Secretary reports all Lodges to be in reason- 
ably good condition financially. Insurance is carried on all 
properties, and it was suggested to several Masters to bring 
the matter of fire insurance before their Committe-e of Gen- 
eral Purposes, with a view to making possible revisions. 

Life memberships could be a cause of financial concern 
in the near future for some Lodges, and the Masters have 
been asked to take early action to give this matter the fulle-st 
consideration. 

One of our smaller Lodges in the Matachewan mining 
area is worthy of a special word of commendation. Mining 
in this area has suffered somewhat of a depression, and as 
a result a number of brethren have been compelled to depart 
from this area to seek employment elsewhere. The remaining 
brethren, although widely scattered, are very faithful in at- 
tending Lodge and in promoting the Craft's welfare. Winter 
conditions can be very severe in this section, but it has to be 
outstanding to keep the members away from their Lodge. 

All Lodges are preparing for their Annual Divine Sei-v- 
ices, and previous years' records show that these services 
are reasonably well attended. 

Several fraternal visits between Lodges were ex- 
changed, and these foster excellent relations and are thor- 
oughly enjoyed. 

Several Lodges have held, or propose to hold a "Ladies' 
Night" before the end of their present year. 

One of the pleasantest evenings in the year was March 
^Ist, when we had the honour and privilege of receiving our 
Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Harry L. Martyn. 
All Lodges in the District were well represented, and many 
distinguished brethren from our sister Districts were in at- 
tendance. It was a great pleasure for me to be able to con- 
duct our Grand Master on a short tour of the Tri-Town area 
of Cobalt-Haileybury-New Liskeard, during the afternoon. 

In the evening, our Grand Master was entertaine<i at a 
dinner in the auditorium of the United Church in New Lis- 
keard, and after the customary toasts our Grand Master 
spoke to the brethren in an address that will be long re- 
membered. 

It has been a great pleasure, a profound honour and a 
distinct privilege to have serve.d as District Deputy Grand 
Master, and I wish to thank again all those brethren in the 
Lodges in this District, without whose help, co-operation and 
friendship, very little could have been accomplished. 

RICHARD H. IRWIN, D.D.G.M. 



122 GRAND UDDGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

NIPISSING WEST DISTRICT 

It has been a great honour and privilege to have served 
Nipissins: West Dstrict in the eventful year of 1958-59. On 
Sept. 20th, 1958, it was my pleasure to assist Most Wor. Bro. 
W. L. Wright in the ceremonies of Constitution and Consecra- 
tion of Friendship Lodge, No. 691, at Copper Cliff. Later 
that evening I installed the Master and officers. The week 
of February 8th was an eventful one for our District. On 
Wednesday, February 11th, I instituted Elliott Lake Lodge in 
their temporary quarters in Blind River, and on Friday, the 
13th, of the same week. Bethel Lodge at Sudbury. Thus, 
Nipissing West District has contributed two new Lodges to 
our Grand Jurisdiction, and has had one receive its Warrant 
in this Masonic year. 

Espanola Lodge, No. 527, has new lodge premises and is 
looking forward to the Dedication in the fall. Two othei* 
Lodges are contemplating building or buying new "homes". 

Each of our 17 Lodges is very busy with candidates; 
perform their functions from well to e-xcellently and the Dis- 
trict Secretary reports they are all in sound financial con- 
dition. I can truthfully requote the words of Most Wor. 
Bro. W. J. Drope, when commenting on Nipissing West Dis- 
trict in 1924, and I quote: "Masonry in Northern Ontario is 
strong, virile, serious and e.xpansive. 

Our Di "Strict was honoured by the election of Rt. Wor. 
Bro. J. B. Sainsbury, of Keystone Lodge, No. 412, as Grand 
Junior Warden. Although he had many commitments 
throucrhout the Grand Jurisdiction, he found time to attend 
all the important functions of the District. We were also 
pleased with the appointments of Woi\ Bro. Alan Y. Brough- 
ton, of Keystone Lodge, No. 412, as the Grand Representative 
of the Grand Lodge of Kansas near our Grand Lodge, (suc- 
ceeding his late lamented father, Rt. Wor. Bro. H. P. Brough- 
ton), and of V. Wor. Bro. W. E. W. Cressey, of Nickle Lodge, 
No. 427, as the Grand Renresentative of the Grand Lodge of 
Chile near our Grand Lodge. 

Our Grand Master visited our District on April 1st, 1959. 
The three "Soo" Lodges, Kevstone, No. 412, Algoma, No. 469, 
and Hatherly, No. 625, acted as hosts and many distinguished 
brethren of our far-flung District, as well as visitors from 
Marquette. Michigan, attended. The Grand Master's address 
was a masterpiece and rewarded all those present. On March 
4th, the Grand Chaplain, Rt. Wor. Bro. Rev. R. S. Skinner, 
visited our District. My mother Lodge, Algoma, No. 469, was 
host to several Lodsces. Again we were the recipients of a 
very interesting address. 

Veteran Jubilee Medals were presented by me to Bros. D. 
H. Smith and H. R. Wood, of Algoma, No. 469, and Wor. Bro. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 123 

F. W. Baxter, an old friend, received his in Gore Bay Lodge, 
No. 472. 

It is with deep regret that I report the death of two 
outstanding members, Wor. Bro. E. D. Mills, Secretary and 
Patriarch of Dyment Lodge, No. 442, last October, and Wor. 
Bro. Edward G. (Ted) Perry, Master of Sudbury Lodge, No. 
658, after only three months in office. 

Most of the Lodges reported that their efforts in Ma- 
sonic Education fell shoi-t of their aims due to the press of 
degree work. With this preconceived thought in my mind I 
planned and delivered an address on Masonic Education to 
each Lodge in the District. 

My appontments were as follows: Wor. Bro. J. S. Fer- 
guson, District Secretary; Rt. Wor. Bro. Canon F. W. Col- 
loton, District Chaplain, and V. W. Bro. J. R. Watt, District 
Supervisor of Masonic Education. These brethren acted as a 
wonderful assisting team, accompanying me whenever pos- 
sible. 

My heartfelt thanks go to all those who, in so many 
ways, made my year easier for me and of more value to the 
District, in particular the District Secretary and my pre- 
decessor, Rt. Wor. Bro. L. L. W. Ashcroft. 

FRANK H. PEARSE, D.D.G.M. 

NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

Fulfilling the office of District Deputy Grand Master 
in North Huron District for the past year has been an ex- 
tremely pleasant and enriching experie-nce for me. The cor- 
dial and gracious reception accorded me in the twelve Lodges 
impressed upon me their loyalty to the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. George H. Gibson, District Secre- 
tary; Rt. Wor. Bro. Adam Dodds, Chairman of Masonic Edu- 
cation, and Bro. Rev. Harold T. West, District Chaplain. 

An official visit was paid to each of the twelve Lodges. 
Practically every officer was sincere and earnest and showed 
good ability in handling the work. I am happy to report 
that Masonry is in a healthy state throughout the District. 

The District Secretary reports that the records of the 
Secretaries are in excellent condition. The financial affairs 
of ten Lodges in this District are in a satisfactory condition, 
while the remaining two are taking steps to revise their by- 
laws in regards to dues and fees. 

The Masonic Education programme was under the ca- 
pable direction of Rt. Wor. Bro. Adam Dodds, but, due to 
illness early in the year, he was unable to carry out the 



124 GRAJSTD LOEVGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

programme. However, Masonic Education is receiving in- 
creased attention in many of the Lodges. 

The District Reception to honour Most Wor. Bro. Harry 
L. Martyn was held at Knox Church Activity Centre in Kin- 
cardine on October 17th, in conjunction with the Centennial 
Celebration of Northern Light Lodge, No. 93, (the first Lodge 
in the District to attain its 100th anniversary). The Grand 
Master gave a very inspiring and impressive address to the 
240 Masons who attended. Rt. Wor. Bro. E. L. James^ 
Grand Senior Warde-n, also honoured us with his presence. 

During the year I have had the privilege of exchanging 
visits with Rt. Wor. Bro. P. S. MacKenzie, D.D.G.M. of 
Bruce District. On one of these visits the Masons of Bruce 
District held a reception and banquet in honour of Most Wor. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association of this 
District is doing excellent work and is filling an important 
place in Masonry. 

The Annual Divine Sei-vice of the District was held on 
June 14th at Wroxeter United Church. Bro. Rev. Harold T. 
West, District Chaplain, arranged the Service and delivered 
the seimon. He was assisted by Rev. Ewart Qarke, of the 
local charge. Approximately 120 brethren from the District 
attended. Many of the Lodges have held their individual 
Services while the remainder have set theirs for a later date. 

W. L. DOUGLAS, D.D.G.M. 

ONTARIO DISTRICT 

At the very beginning of my official duties I was 
able to persuade Wor. Bro. Thos. J. Cuthbert to act as my 
District Secretary. He has been a tower of strength in 
promoting the spirit of Masonry throughout the District, as 
well as a very helpful and efficient Secretary. I was equally 
fortunate in inducing R.W. Bro. Rev. P. N. Knight to act as 
District Chaplain. His ready wit and willingness to speak of 
the duties^ of a Mason in re-spect to his Lodge and also re- 
garding his responsibilities as a man, made him very popular 
throughout the District. R.W. Bro. Knight conducted the 
District Church Service at Colborne in a manner which 
caused many favorable comments from the brethren pres- 
ent. As Chairman of Masonic Education, I was successful 
in securing the services of Wor. Bro. T. F. Graydon, a man 
whose interest in Masonic Educaton and in the proper dis- 
charge of the duties of all those assisting in degree work 
is not surpassed in the District. 

This District for some years past has commenced the 
work after the summer recess with a District Masters' 
Night at St. John's Lodge, Cobourg, with the newly appointed 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 125 

D.D.G.M. in the chair foi' the degree work. It is a wonder- 
ful opportunity for the Masters to get acquainted with each 
other and to appraise the knowledge their D.D.G.M. has of 
the work. 

An €ve.ning, never to be forgotten, was the Constituting 
and Consecrating of Parkwood Lodge, No. 695, in Oshawa. 
The M.W. the Grand Master, presided at the cere-monies, and 
his address in reply to the toast to Grand Lodge gave the 
large number of Masons who attended reason to be proud of 
the man who was their h-ead and of the organization to 
which they belonged. 

I presented three Fifty Year Veteran Jubilee Medals to 
brethren of Colborne Lodge and also one to Wor. Bro. Fred 
Marsh, of Composite Lodge, the latter being presented on 
behalf of the Grand Lodge of Quebec. At my official visit to 
Cedar Lodge, Oshawa, I was honoured by being asked to pre- 
sent the William Mercer Wilson Medal to Bro. W. R. Johnson. 
The citation prepared by his brethren fully explained why 
the Committee in charge of awarding this medal granted tne 
request. 

During the yaar I visited each Lodge twice, once in a 
fraternal visit to become better acquainted with the officers 
and brethren, and then for the official inspection. I was 
received with dignity and honor on all occasions. The offi- 
cers and brethren, who assisted with the work, proved to us 
that they knew their work, not only letter perfect, but also 
the spirit and meaning of what they were conferring upon 
the different candidates. 

I would like to refer at this time to the work of a 
Wardens' Group. These men meet under the leadership oi 
P.D.D.G.M. Jas. Jackson, and I am sure that the discussions 
they have and the instructions they receive have a great deal 
to do with the uniformity of the work throughout the District. 

My Secretary reports that the finances of each Lodge 
are in e-xcellent condition; that there is a minimum of arrears 
of dues. One Lodge reported that it had no arrears of dues. 
Some Lodges are carrying sizable amounts of money looking 
toward the time when they might be going to build. 

My Official Inspection of Fidelity Lodge, No. 428, Port 
Perry, was carried out in their new Temple, which was com- 
pleted in time for the March meeting. Words cannot express 
the congratulations of the District to the brethren respon- 
sible for the erection of this excellent building which is not 
only a credit to the Masons of Fidelity Lodge but also to 
Ontario District. I am told that Wor. Bro. N. Heayn was 
responsible for a great deal of the leadership in this project, 
but I am sure he was ably assisted by the brethren. Not only 
did they contribute their work but also they were generous 
with their money, as I am given to understand that the out- 
standing debt is very small. 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I was fortunate in meeting R.W. Bro. H. G. Hutcheson, 
of Fidelity Lodge. This remarkable Mason was D.D.G.M. in 
the yoar 1906-1907. He passed to the Grand Lodge Above 
on June 4th, 1959, but his example and conduct as a Mason 
will long be remembered by his brethre-n. 

Colborne Lodge, No. 91, was recognized this year by 
Grand Lodge as having completed 100 years of continuous 
service and the brethren were given permission to wear 
gold braid on their regalia. Of the 14 Lodges in the Dis- 
trict, seven have been recognized as having passed the 100 
year mark and the eighth is endeavouring to prove their 
right to this honor as well. 

Still to come, on June 25th, is a District Reception to 
M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Grand Mai?ter. At this gathering 
Colborne Lodge will also be cele-brating their Centennial. The 
banquet will be held in United Lodge, Brighton, as 10-0 years 
ago the first officers of Colborne Lodge were installed by 
Brighton brethren in Brighton. 

I cannot conclude without expressing my deep thanks 
to the brethren of the District for the kindly spiritin which 
I was received and for the encouragement and advice which 
was given so freely. This meant more than they will ever 
realize. 

LEONARD GORDON, D.D.G.M 

OTTAWA DISTRICT 

As this most exciting, satisfying and pleasant year, so 
full of rich and valuable experience, comes to an end, I 
would be remiss if I did not give every credit to those 
wonderful Masons who made my term of office as D.D.G.M. 
possible. 

For the loyal support of the Past Grand Lodge Officers, 
whose sincere cc-operation, sage advice and untiring efforts 
in accompanying me on my official visits throughout the 
District, I am deeply grateful. 

To the Past Masters, Masters and brethren, whose in- 
valuable support in assisting me in such goodly numbers on 
my visits, I am sincerely thankful. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. John Balchin, District Secretary; 
Wor. Bro. John O'Donovan, District Supervisor of Education, 
and The Ven. Archdeacon Bro. J. C. Anderson, District 
Chaplain. 

I paid official visits to each of the twenty-nine Lodges 
in the Ottawa District. There has been a steady increase in 
membership and the calibre of the candidates is uniformly 
high. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 127 

The genial District Secretary, whose capable manner in 
discharging his dutes merited the esteem of all the brethren, 
carefully checked the accounts and records of all twenty- 
nine Lodges, and found them, without exception, in good 
order, and the Lodges in a sound financial condition. 

The- condition of Masonry in the District was never better. 
The work was impressively perfoi-m-ed with dignity and a 
unifoiTii correctness. The high degree of efficiency shoAVTi by 
the younger officers of the various Lodges was very encour- 
aging and speaks well for the future of Masonry in the Ot- 
tawa District. 

Our greatest challenge has no doubt bee-n the stress laid 
on Masonic Education under the supei-vision of Wor. Bro. 
John O'Donovan. For the benefit of the country Lodges 
we were fortunate in having R.W. Bro. H. H. Dymond and 
R.W. Bro. A. Illingworth acting in an advisory capacity, and 
in the City, R.W. Bro. John Heisler and R.W. Bro Douglas 
McQuitty. The results have been most encouraging. 

The highlight of the j^ear was the visit of Most Wor. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Gi'and Master. This was a momen- 
tous occasion for Masonry in our District. The words of 
wisdom of the Most Worshipful Grand Master were an in- 
spiration to all the brethren and will long be rememberod- 

Church Services have bean well attended. A District 
Service was held in Ottawa where individual Lodges held 
services of their own. Combined and separate Lodges held 
services in the country. The outstanding ceremony was the 
Annual Memorial Service on Nove.mber 11th in Ottawa when 
war veterans of all the Lodges paid tribute to the memories 
of their fallen comrades. It was a largely attended, im- 
pressive service befitting the occasion. 

The Annual Masonic Ball was again a great success and 
is one of the outstanding social events in the Capital. 

Whilst the Red Cross has taken over the Blood Bank 
our Blood Donors' Committee, under the chairmanship of 
R.W. Bro. John Heisler assisted by R.W. Bro. Dr. C. W. 
Mcintosh, continue to urge the members to donate to this 
vital cause in the future as generously as they have in the 
past. 

The unveiling of the Corner Stone and Dedication of the 
New Temple at Cobden were most impressive ceremoni?s with 
Che Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, officiating.

small measure in promoting, by their fine example, all worth- 
while endeavours to keep Masonry flourishng and advancing 
in the Ottawa District. 

ROBERT DARBY, D.D.G.M. 

" PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

It has been a very pleasant experience serving as Dis- 
trict Deputy Grand Master in Peterborough District for the 
year just ending. 

On my visits to all twelve Lodges in the District, I found 
the work to be quite uniform and very well done. Work 
was observed in all degrees. I am sure that the assistance 
given in the various Lodges by Past Masters is a great help 
to the Master. 

Each Lodge has a Committee on Masonic Education and 
on some of my visits the Committee gave talks on very 
interesting Masonic subjects. 

The District Secretary found the financial condition of 
the Lodges to be satisfactory and the books in good ordei-. 
Most Lodges are receiving applications from desirable appli- 
cants. The percentage of attendance at meetings appears to 
be higher in the rural Lodges than in the city Lodges. Taking 
everything into consideration, I feel that I am able to report 
.that the condition of Masonry in this District is satisfactory. 

My first official visit was to Corinthian Lodge, No. 101, 
Peterborough, the only 100 year Lodge in the District, and 
the courtesy shown me there continued in the same degree at 
all my visits. 

A very interesting event in my year as D.D.G.M. was 
attending William James Dunlop Lodge, Peterborough, when 
P.G.M. W. J. Dunlop received his Fifty Year Medal from 
PeterboiGUgh Lodge, No. 155, his Mother Lodges On this 
occasion M.W. Bro. Dunlop assumed the gavel for the con- 
ferring of the First Degree and the other chairs were filled 
by Fifty Year Masons. 

On April .'30th, we welcomed our esteemed Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, to Peterborough District. The ar- 
rangements for the reception and banquet were made by a 
committee, the chairman of which was R.W. Bro. R. F. 
Downey, the dean of Masonry in Peterborough District. The 
reception and banquet were held in the Masonic Temple, 
Peterborough, and the large number of brethren present 
listened to an inspiring address delivered by the Most Wor- 
shipful Grand Master. He informed the brethren that it had 
been his privilege, with members of the reception committee, 
to present a Fifty Year Medal to a brother Mason in Peter- 
borough Civic Hospital that afternoon. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 129 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Association 
meeting held on May 21st was very interesting. The Masters 
reported regarding the attendance and work being done 
in their Lodges. The after lunch speaker was Bro. Rev. Dr. 
H. Hutchison who gave a very instructive talk on Masonry. 

Some of the Lodges held Divine Services during the 
year, and on June 7th a District Divine Sei-vice was held in 
St. John's Anglican Church, Peterborough. The attendance 
was average. District Chaplain, Bro. E. J. MacDonald and 
R.W. Bro. R. F. Downey took part in the Service. 

To the District Officers and Masters I am grateful for 
the help and courtesy given me on my official visits. 

WALTER BITTEN, D.D.G.M. 

PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

Fulfilling the office of D.D.G.M. has been a very pleas- 
ant experience and one never to be forgotten. The responsi- 
bilities which the office entails have been lessened by the 
co-operation and efficiency of the Dstrict Officers, Wor. Bro. 
Morley Davidson, District Secretary; Wor. Bro. James Mas- 
tine, District Chaplain, and Bro. James Ritchie, Supervisor of 
Masonic Education. The District Secretary and District 
Chaplain attended every Official Visit and should be com- 
mended most highly for the efficient way they carried out 
their respective duties. Wor. Bro. Ritchie supervised the 
work of the Committee on Masonic Education in a very satis- 
factory manner. 

I was able to make Official Visits to sixteen of the 
seventeen Lodges. Due to my illness, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. E. 
Cleminson very kindly substituted for me on one occasion. 
I am deeply indebted to him for his assistance. 

The reception at all Lodges was warm and generous. The 
work, in all cases, was well exemplified, the business being 
carried out in an efficient manner. The District Secretary 
reports that the records of the Secretaries are in excellent 
condition. We were pleased to note the interest taken in 
lodge properties. One Lodge has its Temple completed and 
held its first meeting in the new premises in December; they 
expect the building to be dedicated later this year. Two 
other Lodges are in the planning stages and hope to start 
building shortly. Several other Lodges have extensive reno- 
vation programs. 

I was privileged to be present at the presentation of two 
Veteran Jubilee Medals, one to Wor. Bro. C. E. Argue, Craig 
Lodge, Deseronto, the other to Wor. Bro. Hariy W. Acker- 
man, Eureka Lodge, Belleville, the latter being on the occa- 
sion of his 90th birthday. 



130 GRAND LODGE OP CAJ^ADA ANNUAL CQMMUNICATiaN 

The Committee on Masonic Education carried on this 
very important work satisfactorily. They stressed short 
five minute talks at all regular meetings and it was most 
gratifying, when the reports came in from the individual 
Lodges, to see the number of meetings where this suggestion 
had been carried out. 

Many special evenings were held throughout the District 
during the year, among which were several Ladies' Nights. 
The District Officers attended as many as possible. One 
meeting deserving special mention was sponsored by the 
Belleville Lodge, No. 123, at which the Secretaries of all the 
Lodges in the District exemplified a degree. Rt. Wor. Bro. 
George J. McQueen, Assistant to the Grand Secretary and 
Supervisor of Benevolence, was present and was the guest 
speaker. The District for the past number of years has 
held a Senior Wardens' Night and a Junior Wardens' Night 
and this year added a Secretaries' Night. We feel that these 
nights have created a very desirable effect. When a new 
Master is elected he is personally acquainted with all the 
other Masters in the District through these meetings. We 
are hoping that this Secretaries' Night will also become an 
annual event. 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Association 
has continued to be very active during the year, the high- 
light being the meeting held at United Lodge, Brighton, on 
Jan. 30th. The guest speaker was Et. Wor. Bro. John R. 
Rumball, Q.C. This meeting was well attended and the 
President, Wor. Bro. K. A. McQuoid, should be congratulated 
on his effort. I would like to pay tribute to the Secretary- 
Treasurer, Rt. Wor. Bro. R. M. Gunsolus, who has been 
Secretary-Treasurer of this organization since its revival a 
few years ago. His tireless efforts on behalf of the brethren 
and the Association are very much appreciated by the entire 
District. 

The most gratifying event during the Masonic year was 
our District Church Service held on May 10th in Belleville. 
The Most Wor. Bro. Archbishop W. L. Wright delivered 
the sei'mon. There were approximately 600 of our brethren 
in attendance, all 17 Lodges being represented. We feel 
that the event was a credit to Masonry. In connection with 
this event we wish to commend Wor. Bro. Mastine, the Dis- 
trict Chaplain. Bro. Mastine not only attended every offi- 
cial visit but made many special trips to the Lodges to tell 
the brethren about the Church Service and also looked after 
all details of organization. The whole District joins me in 
thanking Bro. Mastine for his outstandng effort. Many of 
the Lodges also held individual Church Services. The Dis- 
trict Chaplain and I were able to attend a number of these. 

I wish to thank the Grand Master and my brethren for 
the honour they have bestowed on me and I hope, from a 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 131 

vex-y humble and thankful heart, that I have been of some 
small service to them during my term of office. 

F. G. CREEGGAN, D.D.G.M. 

SARNIA DISTRICT 

Time marches on, and another year has rolled by, so my 
duties as District Deputy Grand Master have come to an end, 
and the honour bestowed upon me will long be remembered. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Herman Briers as my District 
Secretary; he accompanied me on all visits. The Rev. Bro. 
J. P. Cooke acted as District Chaplain and supported me on 
all occasions, except when the duties of his church called 
him. Rt. Wor. Bro. Martin Burnley very capably filled the 
duties of Chairman of Masonic Education. 

It has been my pleasure to visit each of the 21 Lodges 
in the District. With one exception all Lodges carried out 
degree work at the time of my official visit. On all occa- 
sions I was graciously received, and it Vvas an inspiration 
to see the interest taken in the different Lodges by the 
Masters and their officers. In fact some work was so im- 
pressive I would like to have been able to select one or two 
teams and have them demonstrate degrees in the different 
Lodges, but time did not permit. I tried to impress the 
importance of attendance at the meetings and the necessity 
of keeping the Past Masters interested in their Lodge. I am 
sorry to report that there didn't seem to be too much inter- 
est taken in Masonic Education in the District. 

I visited Lodges in the neighboui-ing districts, and also 
had the pleasure of crossing the border to Michigan with one 
of the Lodges in my District where they exemplified the 
Third Degree. At a later date the brethren from Michigan 
exemplified a degree for us and it proved an enjoyable and 
profitable exchange. 

The highlight of the year was with my Mother Lodge, 
Cassia, No. 116. We have just completed building a new 
Temple, and the first meeting to be held in it was on the 
occasion of my official visit in April. There was a large 
attendance from the Lodges in Sarnia and neighbouring dis- 
tricts. We celebrated our Centennial this year also, when 
250 Masons sat down to a delicious banquet served by the 
women's organizations of three of our churches in town. We 
were honoured in having three very distinguished brethren 
as our guests that e.vening, Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce Foster, 
Chairman of Masonic Education; Rt. Wor. Bro. Richard 
Skinner, Grand Chaplain, and Rt. Wor. Bro. Jack Irvine, of 
London, as guest speaker, who gave a fine and inspiring talk 
to the brethren. 

A District Divine Church Service was held on May 31st 
in the Thedford United Church, when the District Chaplain, 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Rev. Bro. J. P. Cooke, delivered a fine sermon, taking for his 
subject "The Church and the Lodge". There was a large at- 
tendance of Masons from the different Lodges. 

I will look back on this ye.ar with pleasant memories of 
all the friends and acquaintances I have made, and I hope, 
from a very humble heart, that I have been of some small 
service to them. 

J. C. WALDEN, D.D.G.M. 

SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

To serve the Grand Master in South Huron District has 
been an inspiring experience for me, as well as a distinct 
privilege and honour. Bro. Alexander Campbell, Presbyterian 
Minister in St. Marys faithfully served the District as Dis- 
trict Chaplain, and Wor. Bro. Herbert Sparling as District 
Secretary. These two brethren are both members of St. 
James Lodge, No. 73. 

I officially visited each of seventeen Lodges in the Dis- 
trict and find the Lodges in good condition. Ten of th» 
seventeen Lodges own their buildigs. I have found the work 
in the three degrees impressive and a credit to the Craft. 
The officers of the respective Lodges shared well in th^ 
work. I find some variations in the work of the Second De- 
gi'ee throughout the District, also considerable misuse of the 
S. of F. With the co-operation of the District Educational 
Committee and the District Past Masters' Association, along 
with much appreciated efforts of Rt. Wor. Bro. M. C. Cain, 
and his degree team, we were able to establish the work in. 
the manner prescribed by Grand Lodge We find that the 
educational guidance and pamphlets by Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce 
Foster are coming to the fore in our respective Lodges. 

St. James Lodge, No. 73, celebrated 100 years of con- 
tinued Masonry. We were most fortunate in having with us 
for this occasion Rt. Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, of Ottawa, our 
Deputy Grand Master. Our District was most privileged in 
having as our guest speaker for the Spring Meeting of our 
District Past Masters' Association our Grand Master, Most 
Worshipful Bro. Harry L. Martyn. Our District was hon- 
oured by fraternal visits from Most Wor. Bro. Dunlop, Rt. 
Wor. Bro. M. C. Cain, and Rt. Wor. Bro. J. A, Irvine. 

Our District was saddened bv the death of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Karl Staffen, of Elma Lodge, Monkton, who was D.D.G.M. 
in 1943. 

We are holding District Divine Service in the First Pres- 
byterian Church, St. Marys, on Sunday evening, June 21st,. 
with our District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. A. K. Campbell, ift 
charge of the Service. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 13$ 

Wor. Bro. Tamman, of Le-banon Forest Lodge, Exeter^ 
received his Fifty Year Medal. Five brethren of St. James 
Lodge, No. 73, St. Marys, are to receive Fifty Year Medals 
on June 29th, namely: Kt. Wor. Bro. Chas. E. Richardson, 
Bro. Fred Y. Lofft, Bro. William E. Andrews, Bro. William 
Dickson and Bro. Alfred Houlgate. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the Wor. Masters, the 
Secretaries, and all the brethren of the 17 Lodges of South 
Huron District for their faithful support and co-operation in 
the fellowship and brotherhood of Masonry. 

DAVID C. WHITE, D.D.G.M. 

ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

The privilege of serving as D.D.G.M. for St. Lawrence- 
District has been a wonderful experience for me, and I ex- 
press my appreciation to the Masons of the District for the- 
honour bestowed on me. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. W. J. Jelly as District Secretary, 
and Bro. Rev. Canon E. N. Grant as District Chaplain. 
These two brethren gave me splendid support during the 
year. They were most devoted to their duties and both, 
accompanied me on all my Official Visits. If I might be 
allowed to make an observation, as our District Secretaries 
are remembered for their contribution to Masonry, would it 
not be fitting to have our District Chaplains remembered in 
some little way by Grand Lodge? 

On my Official Visits to the nineteen Lodges, I was. 
impressed by the friendly and enthusiastic reception accorded 
mo in every Lodge, which clearly indicates the high regard 
Masons of St. Lawrence District have for the Grand Master 
and Grand Lodge. I also found that the Lodges were all 
he-aded by very capable Wor. Masters and officers, and the 
work exemplified was very satisfactory indeed. In short,, 
after making my visits, my observation would be that Mason- 
ry is in a healthy condition in St. Lawrence District. 

One of the highlights of the year was the Centennial 
Anniversary of Central Lodge, No. 110, Prescott. This was 
observed by a Divine Service, and also a banquet which five- 
hundred Masons and wives attended, and was held on April 
10th, at which our Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. C. M. 
Pitts, gave a most inspiring address. 

I am very sorry to report That on May 9th, 1959, one of 
our oldest Lodges, Merrickville, No. 55, had the misfortune 
to lose their lodge room, furniture and records by fire. A 
conflagration such as this is a serious blow to any Lodge and 
I am suz-e that Merrickville, No. 55, has the heartfelt sym- 
pathy of all other Lodges in the District. 



134 GRAND LX)DGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Our Past Masters' and Wardens' Association is very- 
active in this District, having had splendid attendance at 
every meeting. It is an excellent means of fraternization 
and many topics of district interest are thoroughly discussed. 

During the year I visited our neighbouring Districts, each 
on one occasion, the Ottawa District on the Grand Master's 
Visits, the Eastern District at the dedication of the new 
Temple of Excelsior Lodge, No. 142, Morrisburg, and the 
Frontenac District on the Official Visit of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
T. H. Stone, to Rideau Lodge, No. 460, Seeley's Bay. I thor- 
oughly enjoyed fraternizing with the Masons of neighbouring 
districts on these occasions. 

Our Annual District Church Service was held in St. John's 
Anglican Church in Prescott on May 31st, our District Chap- 
lain being in charge of the Service. It was well attended by 
some two hundred and fifty Masons from all Lodges through- 
out the District. 

In conclusion, let me once more thank every Mason in 
St. Lawrence. District for their splendid support throughout 
the year. It has been an enriching experience for me-, and in 
the years to come I shall remember it as the highlight of 
my Masonic career. 

C. HAROLD RALPH, D.D.G.M. 

ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

To have- served as District Deputy Grand Master of St. 
Thomas District has been a wonderful experience and my 
year has passed so quickly that I now wonder if I hav& ful- 
filled the position as well as I possibly could. 

Early in September I appointed the following to assist 
me in mv duties: Wor. Bro. Leon Bodkin, as Secretary; Bro. 
John Gray as Chaplain, and Rt. Wor. Bro. B. C. Damude as 
Supervisor of Masonic Education. 

I am deeply indebted to these brethren for the support 
given throughout the year. The District Secretary reports 
that the eleven Lodges are in good financial condition and 
all books and records are kept in a very capable manner. 

I had the pleasure of visiting Wallaceburg on the occa- 
sion of the Constituting and Consecrating of Baldoon Loage 
and the Dedication of the New Temple, on which occasion 
the Grand Master presided. 

Another pleasant function was the occasion when Lon- 
don District received the Grand Master with members of the 
suri'ounding Districts in attendance. 

Masonic education is being constantly brought before 
all Lodges in the District and Rt. Wor. Bro. Damude, Super- 



TORONTO, 0>rTARIO, 1959 18& 

visor, has delivered three addresses during the year which 
were well received. 

On my official visits to the various Lodges, degrees were 
conferred, with the exception of one, and the work was done 
in a capable manner. The Lodge where no work was avail- 
able, opened and closed in three degrees in a satisfactory 
manner. 

The official visit to my Mother Lodge was a night I will 
long remember. Every Lodge in the District was represent- 
ed and visitors were present from many Lodges in the sur- 
rounding areas. 

On May 24th the Annual Church Sei-vice was held at the 
Trinity Anglican Church in St. Thomas. Some 300 Masons 
were in attendance and an inspiring sermon was given by 
Bro. M. ffriffin. A social hour was held in the basement 
of the Churf'h when Rt. Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine addressed the 
brethren. This occasion was quite appropriate to end my 
official functions of office. 

Most Lodges in the District held Ladies' Night and Mrs. 
Freeman and I had the pleasure of attending most of these 
functions whc-re it gave a further opportunity of associating 
with the brethren and their wives. 

This District enjoys an active Past Masters' and Wardens' 
Association and I feel this association is performing an im- 
portant function in Masonry. Meetings are well attended and 
valuable information is derived from the meetings. 

In closing, may I express my appreciation to you, Most 
Wor. Sir in confirming my appointment. I feel that I have 
contributed something to both my District and Masonry in 
general during the year in this high office. 

H. K. FREEMAN, D.D.G.M. 

TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

In carrying out my duties as D.D.G.M. I have, during 
the past yeai', officially visited all the Lodges in Temiskaming 
District once. Other visits were paid when opportunity 
offered. 

I found the Lodges were, in many cases, e-specially in the 
parts where papermaking and associated products were the 
principal means of employinent, holding their own and in 
other places were making gains. On the whole Masonry is 
much alive in Temiskaming District. 

In honor of the Grand Master and perhaps on my own 
behalf also I was very well received. 



136 GRAND LOEKJE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

From the Secretary's reports I quote the following 
figures: Members in Temiskaming District, 1493; gains dur- 
ing year, 32; loses by suspension, death, and demit, 19. 

The books and accounts of each Lodge were checked and 
approved. Balance sheets were presented for inspection, and 
all the Lodges seem to be in good financial standing. 

A very creditable amount of benevolence is being car- 
ried out. 

As you are aware, an application had to be refused for 
Golden Beaver Lodge. While in sympathy with the applicant 
I appreciated the seriousness of the case and am glad that 
I turned it over to Grand Lodge. 

The difficulty that arose in Cochrane Lodge regarding 
the use of the ante room was cleared up immediately on the 
Wor. Master's attention being drawn thereto. It would never 
have occurred had he been residing in town. He resides in 
Smooth Rock Falls. 

My District Chaplain has been of great assistance dur- 
ing my term of office, accompanying me on all my visits. 
He held a District Church Service in the northern part of 
the district and is to have another in the southern part at 
the end of May. 

To my District Secretary I owe my thanks for all the 
work and time he has given to his office. Without him I 
would have had a tremendous amount of work, as Temiskam- 
ing District covers a large area. 

Any way in which Grand Lodge can honour and repay 
these Brethren for their services will be appreciated very 
much. 

W. L BUTCHER, D.D.G.M. 

TORONTO DISTRICT "A-1" 

I desire to render an account of my stewardship and my 
impressions of the condition of Masonry in Toronto Dis- 
trict A-1. 

Early in my year I appointed Wor. Bro. Clifford V. 
Fleury, of Victoria Lodge, as Secretary of this District. He 
has been zealous and loyal, and has given freely of his time 
and energy in carrying out the duties of his important office. 
I was also pleased to appoint Bro. the Rev. Terrence V. Hart, 
of Southgate Lodge, as District Chaplain. He has performed 
the duties of this office with grace and distinction. 

On January 18th the Annual Divine Service for this 
District was held in First United Church, Port Credit. This 
Service, so well attended, was conducted by Bro. the Rev. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 137 

T. V. Hart, District Chaplain, and Pastor of the Church. It 
proved to be a happy experience, I am sure, for all brethren 
present. 

For the significant and ess'.^ntial District Committee on 
Masonic Education, Toronto A-1 was most fortunate in the 
ready acceptance by Wor. Bro. Edwin A. Rowe, of General 
Mercer Lodge, of the. office of Chairman, and by Wor. Bro. 
Wm. A. Stewart, of Lake Shore Lodge, of the office of Sec- 
retary. These, two brethren brought to this Committee a 
wealth of ability and experience in this fundamentally im- 
portant Masonic activity. 

The efforts of our District Committee, on Masonic Edu- 
cation were particularly noteworthy and were productive of 
results of great consequence. 

During my term I visited each of the nineteen Lodges 
in this District and viewed the work and functioning of the 
Lodges. 

Early in the year, it was my opinion that it would be 
eminently desirable to continue placing great emphasis on 
Masonic Education, and that more intensive activity in thi> 
field would result in more abundant rewards in_ the further 
expansion and dissemination of the great vei'ities of our 
moral system. This aspect of Masonry was stressed in the 
Lodge room and during the refreshment period. 

On December 29th at the Annette Street Temple, this 
Committee held a Lodge of Instruction on the Third Degi'ee. 
The presentation showed evidence of considerable prepara- 
tory effort; the demonstrations and explanations were abund- 
antly clear and very interesting. The measure of interest in 
Masonry in Toronto A-1 was shown by the excellent attend- 
ance. 

On my official visits, it was quite apparent that the 
work throughout the District was of a very high calibre. The 
Worshipful Masters impressed me as able, earnest and sin- 
cere, while Vne other officers appeared to be imbued with 
the desire to act in exemplary accordance with the teachings 
of Masoni-y. One cannot help but feel that the intense and 
dedicated interest in the work of the Wardens' Associations 
by the members is now showing increasing returns for past 
endeavours. 

I have been been pleased to find in some summonses 
appropriate quotations of ethical import. These "words to 
live by" seemed to me of particular interest and appeared to 
be very worth whille. In some summonses, too, definite infor- 
mation was given indicating where and when brethren seeking 
Masonic instruction could appear for help and guidance by 
competent Masonic mentors. Frequent mention, too, was made 
of the facilities of the Library at the Yonge Street Temple,. 



138 GRAND LODCE OF CAJiADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

where any brother may find much to enrich and enlarge his 
Masonic knowledge. 

All these signs seem to point to a better day for Mason- 
ry in A-1 because by means of Masonic Education and by 
such moans pre-eminently can we consummate our principal 
and prime objective, the development, growth and trans- 
formation of the excellent candidates we are receiving into 
the full grandeur of our Masonic concept. 

G. W. CAEROW, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "A-2" 

One of my first pleasant duties after assuming office 
w^as to appoint Wor. Bro. Andrew C. Gerrard as District 
Secretary. He has discharged his duties in a very capable 
manner and assures me the books of the Lodges are well 
kept, proceedings properly recorded, and that the Lodges 
are in good financial condition. 

My next duty, and a pleasant one also, was to appoint 
Bro. Rev. Gordon Smyth as District Chaplain, an office 
which he fulfilled in a very capable and efficient manner. He 
accompanied me on many visits and was well received 
wherever he went. 

Official visitations were made of the seventeen Lodges, 
(on one occasion I found it necessary, due to illness, to call 
on my predecessor, Rt. Wor. Bro. C. Douglas Cuthbert, to 
act in my stead, and of which I am deeply grateful to him 
for his services) and I am pleased to report that Masonry 
in the District is in splendid condition and that the Officers 
are carrying out their duties in a manner befitting to our 
Craft. 

The District Divine Service was held on Sunday, March 
1st, in Yonge St. United Church, with our own District Chap- 
lain, Bro. Rev. Gordon Smyth, conducting the Service. This 
Service was well attended, not only by brethren of this Dis- 
trict, but by brethren from other Districts also. Many 
Lodges also held their own Divine Services, all of which 
were well attended. 

Under the able leadership of Wor. Bro. Hector E. Wilson, 
and Wor. Bro. Leslie Salisbury, Chairman and Secretary 
respectively of the District Committee on Masonic Educa- 
tion, an active Masonic Educaton programme was carried out 
during the year. Every Lodge reported having given short 
talks on Masonic Education on the majority of their regular 
Lodge meeting nights. As in previous years, two Masonic 
Education Nights were jointly sponsored by Districts "A-1" 
and "A-2" for the brethren of both Districts. The first 
meeting was arranged, by District "A-1" and was held on 
December 26th. The second meeting was arranged by the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 139 

Committee of District "A-2" and was held in College Street 
T&mple on March 31st, ably assisted by members of the 
Committee and members of the Wardens' Association. A 
large attendance was present at both meetings; (and here 
again, due to illness, I was deeply indebted to Rt. Wor. Bro. 
C. Douglas Cuthbort for acting in my stead). 

I presented, on behallf of Occident Lodge, Fifty Year 
Medals to two of their brethren, in the persons of Bro. John 
Henderson and Bro. Sydney E. Curran. 

The ever present problem, that of shortage of accommo- 
dation for the formation of new Lodges, is becoming in- 
creasingly evident and is one which, if Masonry is to con- 
tinue to increase in the Toronto area, must be met in the 
very near future. 

In conclusion, may I commend the fine leadership given 
by the various Masters and officers, and pay tribute to the 
various Organists of the Lodges whose music brightens 
the ritual and banquet ceremonies. For the assistance and 
co-operation which was always evident, I am deeply grateful 
which in turn, also indicates the splendid Masonic spirit 
prevailing throughout the District. 

To have the privilege of sending Toronto District "A-2" 
has been a great honour, and for this I humbly express my 
sincere appreciation. 

DAVID A. PETERS, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "B-1" 

The ge-nuine and most coi'dial reception tendered to me 
on all visits to the fifteen Lodges comprising Toronto District 
B-1 evinced the loyalty and esteem of the bi'ethren for the 
Grand Master and Grand Lodge. 

The appointment of W. Bro. Edward C. Fowler as Dis- 
trict Secretary added the business expei-ience that was so 
valuable and necessary in the examination of the records 
and the financial reports of the various Lodges. The Dis- 
trict Secretary performed the necessary duties capably and 
well. His comments on each written report aided consider- 
ably when I summarized the findings to the brethren. 

During the various official visits each Lodge performed 
the work of one degree. One cannot convey fully, through 
the written word, the excellence of the pi-esentation of the 
ritual. There was a real endeavour on the part of all offi- 
cers to exemplify only the best. It was a distinct pleasure 
to commend the Officers, Past Masters, and Brethren, at the 
close of the degree work. Much of the success in the Toronto 
District B-1 can be attributed to Masonic Education meet- 
ings, the Wardens' Association, and fraternal visitation. 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL CX>MMUl«CATION 

Under the leadership of W. Bro. John Arthur, of Cale- 
donia Lodge, and W. Bro. Henry Saunders, of Coronati Lodge, 
District B-1 and B-2 combined for effective meetings on 
Masonic Education. There were two urban meetings and 
one rural meeting which were extremely well attended. It 
was our pleasure to welcome R.W. Bro. B. B. Foster, Chair- 
man of the Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Education, 
to the first of these meetings. In each case the agenda was 
well prepared and capably presented. These le-aders gave 
unstintingly of their time and talent and deserve our sin- 
cerest appreciation. 

I had the pleasure of addressing on one occasion the 
Masters of the combined districts, and on another, the Senior 
and Junior Wardens. These addresses, as well as the ad- 
dresses on the occason of each official visit, dealt with mat- 
ters of Masonic interest and were directed towards the good 
of Masonry in the District. 

Several Lodges held Church Services at which I was priv- 
ileged to read the lesson. On March 15th, the Annual 
Church Se-rvice was held in Dovercourt Road Pr"'sbyterian 
Church. The Sei-vice was conducted by the Rev. Ross Cam- 
eron, M.A., a brother and Chaplain of Stevenson Lodge. The 
Grand Chaplain atte^nded and delivered an inspiring message, 
based upon the scripture lesson read by the District Deputy 
Grand Master. Many Gi-and Lodge Officers and district 
brethren attended on a very stormy night. 

The highlight of this Masonic year was the I'eception 
to the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Harry Laish- 
ley Martyn, given by the combined Toronto Districts B-1, B-2 
and D. The success of the evening demonstrated the effe>c- 
tiveness of cai-eful planning and the spirit of brotherhood. 
Approximately four hundred Masons attended and listened 
attentively to the response of the Grand Master to the Toast 
to Grand Lodge as he told of many interesting continent-wide 
experiences regarding the general condition of Masonry. The 
Masters of the three Districts were presented in person to 
the Grand Master. As a mark of affection and as a re- 
minder of a vei-y important occasion, the brethren presented 
a silver tea service to the Grand Master. 

Many fraternal visits were made in addition to the of- 
ficial ones. On such occasions it was possible to glean some 
of the finer aspects of Brotherly Love of brethren who had 
dedicated themselves to some pursuit. One brother enhanced 
the flyleaf of the Volume of the Sacred Law for each and 
every candidate with an illuminated page; another took upon 
himself the task of instructing the candidates in each degree. 
One cannot overlook the Organists who contribute so much 
and in many cases receive no official recognition. 

To conclude this report I would like to express m.y appre- 
ciation to the many brethren who made this a truly Masonic 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 1*1 

year; to the Past District Deputy Grand Masters for their 
help and wisdom at their annual re-acquaintance night; for 
the pleasant "at homes" to which the District Secretary and 
I could escort our ladies. My wish for the future is that 
Toronto District B-1 may maintain the high spirit of Mason- 
ry that I have seen. _ ,, 
THOMAS H. W. SALMON, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "B-2" 

Grand Lodge can certainly be very proud of the high 
•esteem in which they are held by all Lodges in this Dis- 
trict. The sincere and dignified manner in which I was I'e- 
ceived on every occasion bespeaks the feelings of every 
brother. 

My appointment of Wor. Brn. J. Meek as District Sec- 
retary has proven an exceptional choice. He has faithfully 
visited with me on every occasion and took over the necessaiy 
examinations of the various Lodge records, reporting all in- 
formation in a concise and accurate manner. To him I extend 
my thanks. 

Masonic Education, under the capable chairmanship of 
Wor. Bro. H. Saunders, has been very progressive in the 
joint leadership of "B-1" and "B-2" Committees, and those 
attending were well rewarded. Two of the meetings were 
held in the city and one in the country for the benefit of the 
country lodges. Every Lodge in the District has a Commit- 
tee on Masonic Education, and in most cases the activity 
is vezy commendable. 

On Sunday, November 23rd, tloe District Church Service 
was held at the Church of St. Columba, the sermon being 
given by the District Chaplain, Rev. Bro. W. J. Lennox. We 
■were honoured to have our Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. H. 
L. Martyn, participate in the Seiwice togethe>r with the 
Grand Chaplain, Rt. Woi*. Bro. Rev. R. S. Skinner, and the 
attendance of 250 was most gratifying. Seve-n Ser\dces wei-e 
held by Lodges in the District and on each occasion I was 
privilg'ed to take part. Most of these Sei-\'ices were held 
jointly by two or more Lodges, which is to be highly recom- 
mended. By having joint Services the attendance is better 
and is more gratifying to those who plan the Service. 

The Constitution and Consecration of East Gate Lodge, 
No. 693, was one of the highlights of the year in which I 
was privileged to take part. Most Wor. Bro. J. A. Hearn 
presented the Grand Master and his words of wisdom were 
thoroughly appreciated by the many Masons in attendance. 

The ceremonies planned by Markham Union Lodge, No. 87, 
to celebrate their 100th Anniversary were most impressive. 
Our Grand Master gave a very instructive and interesting 



142 GRANT3 LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

talk. The honour granted me to assist in the Dedication of 
the new Markham Masonic Temple is one I value most highly, 
and the foundation of Masonry laid some 100 years ago in 
Markham will most certainly flourish in the beautiful sur- 
roundings they now have. They are to be congratulated for 
the work and effort they have put into the construction of 
their new building. 

It is a distinct pleasure, at any time, to welcome the 
Grand Master, and the brethren of Torono Districts "B-1", 
"B-2" and "D" were give-n this distinction at a reception to 
Most Wor. Bro. Harry L. Martyn on March 30th. Some 400 
Masons gathered together on this occasion to listen to an 
inspiring and eloquent address. 

I would indeed bo remiss if I did not again mention the 
fine work being done by the many Lodge Organists. Their 
contribution to our meetings adds a solemn dignity to the 
ritual that is most enjoyable. Many Lodges have choirs who 
are doing a splendid job, not only in their own Lodge, but 
throughout the District. 

The many "At Homes" held by the various Lodges were 
most thoroughly enjoyed by Mrs. Elsie, Mrs. Meek, the Dis- 
trict Secretary and myself. The friendly and sincere man- 
ner in which we were received on every occasion was most 
appreciated. 

During the early part of the year, I invested Very Wor. 
Bro. J. Carnaghan of Scarboro Lodge, No. 653, with the 
regalia of a Grand Steward, and I presented a Fifty Year 
Medal to Bro. Fred Walter, of Canada Lodge, No. 532. 

One of the saddest duties I had was to attend several 
Funeral Services held for brethren of this District who had 
ascended to the Grand Lodge Above, and while these Services 
were conducted in a dignified and quiet manner, I could not 
help but feel that the Funeral Service did not seem adequate 
for the type of Sei'vice now held. It would seem that we 
should strive to make our Servic* more suitable for the 
present day type of Service. 

Many interesting and informative meetings were held 
by the various Lodges. Wor. Bro. Wm. Strieker, of Wex- 
ford Lodge, No. 683, initiated his son, and Wor. Bro. D. Rob- 
ertson initiated a father and son into Dentonia Lodge, No. 
651. Space does not permit description of the many enjoy- 
able evenings planned by the Wor. Masters of all the Lodges, 
and I can only congratulate them for the fine work they are 
doing, and trust that they will continue to plan their meet- 
ings for the benefit of all the brethren. 

Most of our Masonic Education is based on tradition, 
landmarks, history and symbolism of the Craft, and I some- 
times feel that we overlook one of the most important prin- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 148 

ciples of Masonry — being friendly. Without friendship our 
Order would cease to exist as a fraternal organization. One 
cannot purchase, friendship like candy; it must be earned by 
being a friend, by showing an interest in our fellow Masons. 
The great amount of work to be done, particularly in the city 
Lodges, makes it very difficult to "squeeze in" a talk on 
Masonic Education, but the practice of friendship and broth- 
erly love can do much to increase the value of membership 
in our Order. 

I am most happy to report that Masonry in this Dis- 
trict is in good hands. Ritualistic work in all Lodges is 
excellent and the support given by the Past Masters to the 
present officers deserves mention. Members are eager to 
participate, and thoir contributions are outstanding. The 
Masters, officers and members of all the Lodges have made, 
for me, a year that will always bo remembered. The many 
kindnesses extended to me are deeply appreciated and it is 
my hope that I have, in somo small way, strengthened the 
bond of friendship among the Lodges of the District. 

ROBERT ELSIE, D.D.G.M. 

TORONTO DISTRICT "C" 

In the time which has elapsed since our last Grand 
Lodge. Communication it has been a most rewarding experi- 
ence to represent the Grand Master in this, one of the large 
Districts of our Grand Jurisdiction. 

Toronto District "C" is now composed of twenty Lodges 
in Toronto and nine Lodges extending from Thornhill just 
north of the Metropolitan limits to Bradford on Highway 
11, and Sutton West on Lake Simcoe. The membership in 
this District is well over 7,000 which we believe to be 
among the largest in the province. 

It would be difficult to enumerate the many spontaneous 
demonstrations of respect which were accorde^d the Grand 
Master through his representative. The brethren of this 
District have a sense of pride and loyalty for the Grand 
Master and Grand Lodge for which, as their emissary, the 
District Deputy Grand Master had reason to be at all times 
truly grateful. 

1 was proud to appomt my long time friend, Wor. tiro. 
Mel Maltby, the District Secretary, and it proved to be a 
choice which met with approval throughout the District. On 
the occasion of each visit Wor. Bro. Maltby was immense- 
ly helpful in his summary of the report which is given the 
District Deputy and he always made favourable comment 
regarding the co-operation received from the Secretary. Ac- 
cording to these reports, the Secetaries of this District are 
devoted men who contribute a great deal of time and thought 
to the best interests of their respective Lodges, and in turn 
those of the larger field of Masonry, 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I was at all times impressed with the dignity with which 
the Master of each Lodge, assisted by Past Masters and 
officers, conferred the various degrees. I was also gratified 
to" observe the self-assurance with which some members par- 
ticipated. During the season I witnessed all three degrees 
and am proud to report that the standard of ritual is very 
high. I would also make favourable comment regarding the 
care with which brethren weae prepared for the Fellowcraft 
and Master Mason Degrees. It indicated that our brethren 
have a real interest in assisting their fellows in the inferior 
degrees. 

Masonic Education has been under the guidance of an 
able committee of which Wor. Bro. John Yaeger served as 
Chairman along with Wor. Bvq. Keith Sabine, the Secretary. 
These brethren, assisted by their advisors, planned three 
meetings. 

The first meeting took place at St. Clair Lodge where 
we heard very fine talks by three eminent Masons. R. Wor. 
Bro. John Ruinball spoke on Masonic Jurisprudence; R. Wor. 
Bro. Frank Malcolm told the gathering something of the 
activities of the Masonic Service Guild, and R. Wor. Bro. 
George McQueen told the great story of Benevolence m 
this Grand Jurisdiction. 

The second meeting which was sponsored by Rehoboam 
Lodge took the form of a Lodge of Instruction on the Second 
Degi'ee under the able guidance of R. Wor. Bro. Molson _C. 
Cain. The men who participated, all of whom were junior 
officers, came from the rural Lodges and they performed 
like veterans. 

The third evening at Tuscan Lodge, Newmarket, was de- 
voted to a demonstration of the care with which prospective' 
applicants should be interviewed, and it made a real im- 
presson on the capacity audience. The very fine manuscript 
for this demonstration was written by Wor. Bro. John Yaeger, 
Wor. Bro. Sabine and Wor. Bro. Andew Hood. It consisted 
of two interviews and a Committee of General Purposes 
meeting at which these interviews were discussed. Those 
taking part were Senior Wardens and their ability to portray 
the various situations was highly commendable. 

During this year Tuscan Lodge, Newmarket, celebrated 
its One Hundredth Anniversary, the chief occasion being a 
fine banquet at which R. Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Deputy Grad 
Master, addressed the brethren. 

Divine Services were sponsored by Fairbank and Har- 
mony Lodges, by Tuscan Lodge, Simcoe Lodge and Richmond 
Lodge, all of which were well attended. The District Divine 
Service was conducted by the District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. 
Noble Hatton, in Sherboume United Church. The District 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 145 

Chaplain was assisted by M. Wor. Bro. James P. Maher, 
Past Grand Master, and the District Deputy Grand Master. 

It is with regret that I write of the passing of a num- 
ber of faithful and highly respected brethren. In many 
instances Masonic Honours were observed and, whenever it 
was possible, either the Grand Master or both were pre-sent. 

This Masonic season began on September 29th, with the 
Institution of Harry L. Martyn Lodge. This Lodge was 
formed under the leadership of R. Wor. Bro. Walter Overend, 
who became its first Master, and is mainly composed of 
brethren from other parts of the country, who were anxious 
for affiliation in Ontario. This new Lodge has had a most 
active first season with a very high average attendance. 

My last formal duty was to accompany the Grand Mas- 
ter in the Dedication Ceremony of the new Richmond Temple. 
Most Worshipful Brother Martyn addressed the assembly at 
the banquet and was presented with Honorary Life Member- 
ship following the Dedication. The brethren of Richmond 
Lodge, No. 23, are to be congratulated on the beauty of their 
new Temple. 

Throughout the activities during the past months I have 
at all times been encouraged and inspired by the faithful 
attendance of Masters, Past Masters, Se.nior Wardens and 
Junior Wardens, for which I wish to express my sincere 
gratitude. 

HAROLD F. NORMAN, 

D.D.G.M. 

TORONTO DISTRICT ''D" 

It has bee.n a very rewarding experience for me to serve 
as D.D.G.M. during the past year. The esteem and respect 
for the Grand Master is reflected by the sincerity with which 
I was received throughout the District. It is my wish to 
express to the Masters, Past Masters, Wardens, officers and 
brethren, my deep appreciation for the genuine kindness of 
their greeting wherever I visited. 

The appointment of W. Bro. George N. Walker as 
District Secretary proved to be a most excellent choice. He 
performed the duties of his office with an enthusiasm that 
merited every promise and trust which I had for him and he 
has certainly won for himself the sincere esteem of his 
brethren. While the D.D.G.M. perhaps is the recipient of 
great honour, we must not forget the great contribution to 
the District which is given by the District Secretary. 

W. Bro. Rev. Milton Williams again consented to act as 
District Chaplain, and, as in former years, gave excellent 
leadership. The Annual District Divine Service was held in 
the Church of the Nativity on April 12th, and the Church 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

was crowded to capacity with the brethren and many of their 
ladies. The Grand Master was present and participated in 
the Service. Many individual Lodges held other Services, 
and I attended whenever possible. 

W. Bro. George W. Lennox acted as District Chairman 
of Masonic Education, and was most enthusiastic in the dis- 
charge of his duties, in co-operation with R. W. Bro. B. 
B. Foster, Chairman of Masonic Education, who gave, excel- 
lent leadership in this work. Wor. Bro. Lennox organized 
two separate Lodges of Instruction, on October 29th, and on 
April 29th, and with the splendid co-operation of our Senior 
Wardens' gi-oups, under the capable direction of R.W. Bro. 
Molson Cain, gave the brethren of this District very valu- 
able instruction which was well received by over two hun- 
dred at each meeting. I offer my sincere thanks to R. W. 
Bro. Cain for his generous assistance. 

The outstanding event of the year was the reception to 
the Grand Master, sponsored jointly by Districts B-1, B-2 
and D. It was well attended by over four hundred brethren 
who gave a most genuine and sincere expression of the 
great loyalty and affection they have for the Grand Master. 
The evening was a very pleasant one, and the address of 
the Grand Master was most inspiring; all brethren present, 
I am certain, were given renewed enthusiasm for the great 
principles of our Institution. 

The Senior Wardens' gi'oup in this District continues, 
as in the past, to be a most active and well organized asso- 
ciation. 'They are enthusiastic, loyal and very sincere and 
constantly set an example of uniformity. Visiting each of 
the twenty-five Lodges, and doing degree work in all, they 
not only derive gi'eat experience but they become more ca- 
pable for future responsibilities. They also promote a great 
feeling of friendliness and fellowship as they travel through- 
out the District. 

I visited each Lodge at least once, and most Lod?res 
several times during the year. I have been impressed with 
the very excellent decree work being done in this District; 
the standard is exceptionally high. This must be due to 
the Masonic Education programmes of the last several years 
in this District which have been most instructive and so well 
attended. 

The calibre of new members is excellent. All Lodges are 
to be commended for the careful manner in which they are 
choosing those who are to carry on the great ideals of the 
Craft. 

It has been my privilege to present and invest Grand 
Stewards on two occasions; to present one Fifty Year Medal, 
and to attend many special meetings of various Lodges in 
the District. All visitations have been most pleasant and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 147 

profitable. Accompanied by the District Secretary, I was 
present at Installation Ceremonies in most Lodges of the 
District, and I was greatly impressed with the sincerity and 
the dignity which prevailed on these occasions. 

District '"D" lost a considerable number of worthy 
brethren during the year, and on every occasion when it was 
made known to us, the District Secretary and I visited the 
chapel and attended the Memioral Services whenever pos- 
sible. 

Mr. Graham and I have been happy to accept invitations 
to attend many social functions in the District, and we have 
enjoyed very much the opportunity of meeting so many of 
the brethren and their ladies. True Masonic friendship was 
so much in evidence on all these occasions, and we will cer- 
tainly retain the most pleasant recollections for years to 
come. 

The Secretaries of the District continue to give out- 
standing service to their individual Lodges and, also, give 
the finest leadership at all times. The District Secretary was 
very impressed with the efficiency and the excellent condition 
of all records and accounts of all District Lodges; the Secre- 
taries are as always a great strength to the Lodges they 
serve. 

The Worshipful Masters are doing excellent work in plan- 
ning and organizing their meetings. There seem to be many 
members, who are not officers, yet are anxious to do the 
work, and they do it exceptionally well. This was well illus- 
trated on many of my visitations, and I feel that members in 
all Lodges should be' e-ncouraged to participate in the work 
if we are to stimulate better attendance. Yet, with the in- 
creased use of these younger members, we must hold the 
stabilizing guidance of the older and more experienced mem- 
bers, that we may build up the new on a strong foundation. 

The officers in all Lodges are earnest and sincere in 
their respective responsibilities, and are ever anxious to do 
creditable work. I have noted a genuine desire throughout 
the Lodges of the District; members and officers are eager 
to learn, to increase their knowledge of the principles of the 
Craft, and to improve their individual abilities, that Masonry 
may be the better for their membership in it. There is a 
more enquiring attitude manifested throughout the District, 
and a far greater enthusiasm for excellence. 

Unlike other associations, the ritual of our institution is 
most prominent and we must be sure that it is as close to per- 
fection and given with the sincerity and the dignity wbi'^'^ it 
merits. Wherever work is done exceptionally well, a far 
greater spirit of enthusiasm prevails, and there is the exact 
reverse if this is not true. Members appreciate dignity and 



148 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL CX)MMUNICATION 

the utmost sincerity, and they will come to Lodge regularly 
if they may expect, when they come, to hear the degree 
work done on a high level of perfection. Those, in charge of 
work in the various Lodges must be mindful of this, and con- 
tinue to promote an eagerness and a desire for a thorough 
preparation of all degree work. 

In conclusion, may I say that I appreciate so much the 
genuine and sincere co-operation which I have received dur- 
ing the year. The many friendships which I have made, and 
the kindnesses of so many brethren have given me great en- 
couragement, and I sincerely wish to thank my brethren for 
the great privilege which has been mine. 

D. H. GRAHAM, D.D.G.M. 



VICTORIA DISTRICT 

During the Masonic year of 1958-59, I have had the 
privilege of visiting each of the thirteen Lodges in the Vic- 
toria District. The most gracious and cordial reception was 
extended to me on my official visit to the different Lodges, 
which indicated the sense of loyalty, affection and esteem 
which the brethren have for the Grand Master. 

It was my pleasure to have Wor. Bro. Wm. Scott, of 
Kinmount, accompany me on each visit as District Secretary. 
I appreciated the inspiring assistance of Bi"o. Rev. C. W. 
Thomas who attended each meeting in the official capacity of 
District Chaplain. 

The brethren of the District made a great effort in 
visiting the various Lodges on their inspection night. This 
was most encouraging. I found the work in all the Lodges 
in Victoria District well given. On the whole the Masters 
and their officers are carrying out their duties exceptionally 
well. I was particularly impressed by the fine type of candi- 
dates being received into Masonry in the District. Our new 
brethren will contribute much to the spirit of goodwill and 
fellowship which is prevalent in this locality. 

The Masters', Past Masters' and Wardens* Association 
was active and held two meetings during the year which 
were well attended and were very successful. 

There were m^any highlights during the year, beginning 
with the Fred Warren Traveling Gavel, which was presented 
to the Somerville Lodge by Spry Lodge in September. It has 
now been presented five times during the year. 

We had a very delightful and instructive evening at 
Gothic Lodge, Lindsay, on their inspection night. The high- 
light of the evening was an address given by the Grand 
Chaplain, R.W. Bro. R. S. Skinner. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 149 

The Wardens' Association of Victoria District held four 
meetings during the year. The first meeting was held 
in Fe^nelon Falls at which the officers were elected. The 
second was held in the Arcadia Lodge, Minden, where de- 
grees were, conferred. The third meeting was a Lodge 
of Instruction under the guidance of Rt. Wor. Bro. Molson 
Cain, Past Grand Senior Warden, in Spry Lodge, Fenelon 
Falls. The fourth meeting was held in Faithful Brethren 
Lodge, Lindsay, where the Third Degree was conferred. 

District Divine Service- was held in St. James Anglican 
•Church, Kinmount, on Sunday, April 12th. The Church was 
filled to capacity. Bro. Rev. Thomas, District Chaplain, was 
the officiating Minister, taking for his text, "The Posture of 
My Daily Supplications". 

The highlight of the year was the" visit of our Grand 
JVTaster to Victoria District in Kinmount with 140 Masons 
present. Sincere co-operation and enthusiasm were ren- 
dered by all the brethren of the District to the Grand Master 
■on his visit. 

Much has been accomplished regarding Masonic Education 
under the supervision of Wor. Bro. Ken Johnston, of Gothic 
Lodge, Lindsay. Several medals were presented during the 
year for long and faithful service to the fraternity. 

In the fall of 1958, North Entrance Lodge started its new 
Temple and by June 1st, 1959, they had completed a wonder- 
ful building which is a great credit to the Lodge. The 
brethren must be commended for their interest in Masonry. 
Victoria District is very proud to have a Masonic Temple of 
this kind in Haliburton. 

I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the honour 
of being elected to the office of D.D.G.M. and for the won- 
derful receptions and co-operation I received during the past 
year. I shall always cherish the memories of a most re- 
"ft'^arding year in Masonry. 

W. H. CARR, D.D.G.M. 



WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

r thank the members of Wellington District for the hon- 
our and privilege of serving as your D.D.G.M. It has been 
an experience I shall always cherish and remember with 
pleasure. The cordial and gracious reception accorded me on 
my official and fraternal visits to the twenty-two Lodges 
in the District is sincerely and gratefully acknowledged. 

Wor. Bro. Wilfred Graystone kindly agreed to act as 
District Secretary. He served both as Secretary of the 
T)istrict and as Secretai'y of his own Lodge. He was most 
•capable in his work, accompanying me on all my official 



150 GRAND LODGE OF C.^^J^ADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

visits. His report clearly indicates the splendid work that 
all Lodge Secretaries in the District are doing. 

R.W. Bro. D. K. Bartleman, who has for many years 
faithfully and capably acted as Supervisor of Masonic Edu- 
cation, requested to be relieved of this duty. It was with 
regret that I acceded to his wish. Accordingly, I appointed 
V. Wor. Bro. N. R. Richards, who most kindly accepted this 
office and discharged his many duties with great skill. V. 
Wor. Bro. Richards and his able committee arranged two 
District Meetings which were well received. My personal 
thanks are hereby e^xtended to V. Wor. Bro. Richards and his 
committee for their splendid contribution and I trust that 
he will act in this capacity for many years to come. 

It was a privilege for Preston Lodge to have th& 
reception and dinner in honour of the Grand Master, M.W. 
Bro. H. L. Martyn, held in Preston, November 3rd, at the 
Hotel Kress. This outstanding event was well attended by 
members of Wellington District who enthusiastically gave our 
Grand Master a standing ovation at the conclusion of a splen- 
did address. It was a most successful evening. 

I appointed Bro. the Rev. H. J. Herlihey, District Chap- 
lain; he fulfilled his duties most satisfactorily. 

The District Divine Service, under the direction of Bro. 
Herlihey, was held in Preston, Sunday, May 3rd, at 7.O0 p.m. 
in St. Paul's United Church, of which he was minister. The 
brethren of the District attended in goodly numbers and par- 
ticipated in a reverent and inspiring seinrice. 

The work in the District is very uniform and well 
given and certainly shows the keen interest and skill the 
Masters and officers of this District are putting into their 
ritual work. 

Attendance again poses a serious problem to all I/odges 
and it will always be a problem, I believe, owing to the 
ever-increasing tempo of modern living. May I stress that 
we must all be vitally interested at all times in employing 
every possible means to maintain maximum attendance — a 
"must" for Masonic usefulness. 

In closing, I bespeak for my successor the same spirit 
of co-operation and lively brothei'hood which has been given 
to me. May Wellington District always carry on its splen- 
did contribution to Freemasonry.

visits, has been very active and a great help throughout the 
year. The records and accounts of each Lodge were care- 
fully checked by him and were reported to be in good order. 

It was a pleasure to share with the Lodges of Western 
District the enthusiasm of the Chaplain, R. Wor. Bro. Crox- 
ford, in his office. He accompanied the Secretary and me on 
many of our visits. Due to the distance involved, the Chap- 
lain arranged for two District Divine Services, one for the 
southern portion at Emo United Church, the second at St. 
Luke's Anglican Cliurch, Dryden, with very satisfactory at- 
tendances. At both, the Chaplain and I participated by read- 
ing the lessons from the Volume of the Sacred Law. Local 

Divine Services were held by each Lodge.

Masonic Education is definitely improving. While the 
majority of the Lodges in the District have regular instruc- 
tion, one Lodge, which previously had very little, is now de- 
voting a regular period to this, and a second has ad- 
vised a stated monthly period has been set aside to com- 
mence with the fall meetings. For this, much credit must 
go to Bro. Swanbergson for his persistent effort and devo- 
tion. If one were to single out one dedicated to Freemasory, 
it would be this brother. Granite Lodge, under the super- 
vision of Wor. Bro. E. M. Hemmens, retained the shield which 
is competed for annually by Fort Frances, Keewatin and Ken- 
ora Lodges. 

The condition of Masonry in Western District is very 
good. The majority of Lodges conferred degrees on my of- 
ficial visits and the work was generally well given. One 
could not but be impressed with the sincerity and zeal of 
the younger brethren who participated in the work. 

A common problem, but one which affects Western Dis- 
trict in a somewhat different way, is Lodges with more 
than two hundred membership and where there are periods 
available for additional meetings in the lodge rooms. If the 
Lodges concerned would share jurisdiction for the institution 
of another Lodge, this would give opportunity for more 
brethren to participate in the work, and thus increase the 
interest and improve the attendance. 

Due to the decline of industry, with resultng decreased 
population. Keewatin Lodge, No. 417, is confronted with lack 
of prospective candidates. In the adjoining Lodges of Pe- 
■quoga, No. 414, and Lake of the Woods, No. 445 (who have 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

joint jurisdiction) there is an increasing population. In 
view of this and the proximity of these three Lodges, I recom- 
mended to them that there be concurrent jurisdiction. 

Two District Lodges celebrated anniversaries, with 
Golden Star, No. 484, marking their fiftieth, and Granite, No. 
446, their sixtieth. 

For the first time, the D.D.G.M.'s of Algoma and West- 
ern Districts reciprocated visits on their official inspection 
of their home Lodges. Rt. Wor. Bro. Roy Gunn accorded me 
the honour of addressing his Lodge. I have an especially 
warm regard for this Rt. Wor. Brother, who suffered a great 
loss in the sudden death of his wife early in his term of of- 
fice, yet carried on in serving Grand Lodge with true quali- 
ties of Masonry. 

The respect and fratenial spirit found throughout the 
entire District reflects their loyalty to Grand Lodge. 

JOHN B. FRASER, D.D.G.M. 

WILSON DISTRICT 

I have visited all twenty-two Lodges in Wilson District 
and on every occasion was accorded a warm and cordial wel- 
come. A most gracous and full respect was accorded the 
Grand Master and Grand Lodge by all brethren. 

On my visits I was accompanied by the District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. James C. Long; the District Chaplain, Wor. 
Bro. Rev. George A. Shields, and the Director of Masonic 
Education, Wor. Bro. Stanley J. Hislop. Each of these 
officers was given the opportunity to address the brethren. 
Attendance at all visits was exceptionally good. The degree 
work throughout the District was well done in a capable 
manner. It was very uniform and impressive. 

Wor. Bro. James C. Long, District Secretary, who has so 
ably assisted me during the year, found all Lodges in sound- 
financial positions with most capable Secretaries in charge. 
Premises were in good condition, but a few lacked sufficient 
insurance and increases were recommended. 

Masonic Education was found to be thriving in the Dis- 
trict and was greatly assisted by Wor. Bro. Hislop with his 
stirring information. The guidance and assistance of Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Bruce Foster were very valuable. Wor. Bro. Rev. 
George A Shields was able to uphold the connection of re- 
ligion and Masonry at all official visits and will long be 
remembered in the District. 

Our District Divine Service was held in the Innerkip 
Presbyterian Church on November 2nd. Wor. Bro. Rev. 
George A. Shields arranged the Service and delivered the 
sermon. He was assisted by Rev. J. P. Schissler, minister of 
the Church. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 153 

Two lodges in the District celebrated their Centennial 
during the year. I was present at the celobration of Blen- 
heim Lodge, No. 108, Princeton, where the speaker was R.W. 
Bro. D. M. Sutherland, a member of the Blenhiem Lodge and 
District Deputy Grand Master in 1914. He delivered a superb 
address on the. history of Masonry in Ontario. The Centennial 
celebration of St. John's, No. 104, Norwich, will take place 
in the fall. 

I also attended two receptions, one in London, and 
one in St. Marys, given in honour of Most Wor. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association held three 
meetings during the year, with a large attendance at each. 
On March 11th, Mercer Wilson Lodge, Woodstock, was host 
to the Association. Rt. Wor. Bro. Molson Cain and a degree 
team from Toronto exemplified and explained the Third 
Degree in a most efficient manner. 

On March 17th I presided at the institution of Coi-inthian 
Lodge in Kintore. I was assisted by Rt. Wor. Bro. H. L. 
Peers, London; Rt. Wor. Bro. White, of South Huron Dis- 
trict, and other Past Grand Lodge officers. 

On May 25th I had the pleasure of attending the first 
Lodge meeting held in the fine new Temple of Frederick 
Lodge, No. 217, Delhi. The new Temple at Ingersoll is near- 
ing completion. 

One of the highlights of the year was the. evening of my 
final and official visit to my Mother Lodge — Oak Branch, No. 
261, when the Lodge was host to all Masons in Wilson Dis- 
trict. The guest speaker, Wor. Bi'o. Robert Groom, delivered 
an inspiring address. 

In closing I would say that Masony in Wilson District is 
making steady progress with each Lodge striving to promote 
the ideals of Masonry. 

WM. A. CHESNEY, D.D.G.M. 

WINDSOR DISTRICT 

It has been a great expperience to have had the privilege 
of serving as District Deputy in the Windsor District, and 
the warm reception that I received on all occasions is some^ 
thing that I will always remember. I visited all of the 19 
Lodges officially, and many unofficial visits were made. 
Wor. Bro. Douglas Martin, the District Secretary, accom- 
panied me on all occasions and examined the lodge books and 
records and all were found to be in good order. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Rev. Gordon Houghton as District 
Chaplain, and as we in the Windsor District were very for- 
tunate in having the Grand Chaplain this year, these two 



154 GRAiro LODOE OF CANADA ANNUAL OOMMTJNl CATION 

brethren accompanied me on many of my visits and added a 
great deal to the dignity and success of tho meetings. 

The Windsor District Past Masters' and Officers' Asso- 
ciation is a great help to the District. It gives the new 
officers an opportunity of becoming better acquainted and 
stimulates interest among all the Lodges. 

During the vear I presented a Fifty Year Past Master's 
Medal to Wor. Bro. C. R. Hackett, of Thistle Lodge, Am- 
herstburg, and a Fifty Year Medal to Bro. J. H. Madill, of 
King Edward Lodge, Harrow. 

The District Divine Service was held in Windsor this 
year in Emmanuel United Church and was well attended. It 
was also my pleasure to be present at several Services which 
were held in the County by the individual Lodges. 

It is very gratifying to learn of the improvement in 
Lodge premises throughout the Province, and in our District 
alone two new lodge buildings were dedicated. On April 24th 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce Foster represented the Grand Master and 
dedicated the new building of Thistle Lodge, No. 34, at Am- 
herstburg. The following night Rt. Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine 
represented the Grand Master at Harrow and dedicated the 
new building of King Edward Lodge, No. 488. Both of these 
meetings were preceded by a banquet and we were very 
pleased to have both the Grand Sr. Warden and Grand Jr. 
Warden present, as well as many past and present Grand 
Lodge officers from the Windsor and CTiatham Districts. 

In conclusion, I would like to thank the brethren of the 
Windsor District for their loyal support, and to say how 
pleased I am to have had the opportunity of serving as Dis- 
trict Deputy during the past year.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
WARRANTS 

This repoi't was presented by R. W. Bro. J. N. 
Allan, ChaiiTnan, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Allan, it was received 
and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

M'ost Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Warrants is pleased to present its 
report for the year ended May 31st, 1959. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 155 

Your Committee is pleased to report, as it did in each of 
the two previous years, that applications for warrants have 
been received from five new Lodges that have been 
operating under dispensation granted by the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master. The records of the Lodges applying for 
warrants were again excellent, all had complied with the 
direction of Grand Lodge that a bound (not loose leaf) minute 
book and a proper membership ledger be used. It was 
gratifying to obsei-ve that none of the Secretaries concerned 
had used a membership card system in place of the ledger. 
The possibility of the loss of the membership record of a 
brother is thus lessened. The excellence of the records 
examined emphasized the wisdom of selecting an experienced 
and well skilled brother to sen^e as secretary of the new 
Lodge. 

Your Committee wish to again encourage the institution 
of new Lodges where such action appears advisable. The 
steady increase in the number of Lodges indicates a continued 
and healthy growth of our Order in this Grand Jurisdiction. 
Your Committee would again remind the brethren that mem- 
bers of smaller Lodges have more opportunity to participate 
in the work and because of this are likely to have a greater 
interest in their Lodge. 

Following the examination of the petitions, books and 
records already mentioned we are pleased to i-ecommend 
that warrants be issued to the following Lodges presently 
under Dispensation: 

(a) HARRY L. MARTYN LODGE, U.D., Toronto, in- 
stituted September 29, 1958, to be numbered 696 and 
placed in Toronto "C" District. 

(b) GRANTHAM LODGE, U.D., Port Dalhousie, in- 
stituted September 29, 1958, to be numbered 697 and 
placed in Niagara "A" District. 

(c) ELLIOT LAKE LODGE, U.D., Elliot Lake, in- 
stituted Febi-uary 11, 1959, to be numbered 698 and 
placed in Nipissing West District. 

(d) BETHEL LODGE, U.D., Sudbury, instituted Feb- 
i-uai-y 13, 1959, to be numbered 699 and placed in 
Nipissing West District. 

(e) CORINTHIAN LODGE, U.D., Kintore, instituted 
March IT. 1959, to be numbei-ed 700 and placed in 
Wilson District. 

It has been the practice of your Committee each year 
to i-emind all new Lodge Secretaries of the advantage of 
starting always at the top of the page to record the Minutes 



156 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of a Meeting and likewise of the desirability of making^ 
marginal notes indicating the subject matter of each para- 
graph. This practice will prove exceedingly useful in as- 
certaining infoi-mation i^garding items recorded in the 
Minutes. 

We likewise I'ecominend that new Lodges procure suitable 
record books and have them properly set up, thus establish- 
ing the foundation for properly recoixling the proceedings 
and records of the Lodge. 

Your Committee has, in previous reports, suggested that 
the new Lodge seek the advice and direction of the Grand 
Secretaiy's office in this very important undertaking. We 
now go farther, and urge that this practice be followed, 
indeed, we recommend that a circular be prepared by the 
Grand Secretary's office setting out in detail the proper 
books to procure and those procedures considez'ed important in 
establishing a system whereby the proceedings of the new 
Lodge will be recorded properly. 

Your Committee further recommends: 

1. That copies of Lodge summonses should be retained 
and pei-iodically bound. This is a small effort and 
enables interesting data in connection with the Lodge 
to be available in an accessible form. 

2. That new Lodges appoint an interested brother to 
record the history of the Lodge each year. We 
suggest that a plan be developed which will assure 
that such historical notes will be completed each 
year and placed with the records of the Lodge. 

3. That consideration be given by every new Lodge to 
the provision of a fireproof receptacle which will 
accommodate the Wai'i'ant, the minute book, the by- 
laws, the membei'ship ledger and the history of the 
Lodge. The Warrant and all records of a Lodge 
become increasingly valuable as the years pass. It 
must be realized that the originals, if destroyed, can 
never be replaced. 

Finally, your Committee wish to extend felicitations 
to these new Lodges and to express the hope that success 
in abundance will reward the efforts of the officers and 
members of the indi\'idual Lodges. We were especially 
pleased to learn that Lodge No. 696 bears the name of 
Most Wor. Bi'o. Harry L. Martyn. It is fitting that such a 
worthy brother is so honoured and we wish this Lodge an 
especial measure of success. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

JAMES N. ALLAN, 
i Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMIVIITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL RELATIONS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. F. A. 
Copus, ChaiiTnan, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

There would be little for us to report this year if the 
dutyof this Committee consisted solely of dealing with the 
applications for recognition from Grand Lodges not at 
present regarded as members of our Masonic family. For, 
■while there are a number of applications in hand, none of 
them is acceptable without further investigation. It has 
long been the policy of this Committee to move but slowly 
in this matter of recognition, so we recommend that the 
application from the newly formed Grand Lodge of Japan 
should be laid over for further investigation, while those 
from China, France, Brazil, the Lebanese Grand Lodge 
(Arab) and Mexico be indefinitely postponed until time and 
circumstances bring happier home conditions. Not entirely 
out of the picture is the possibility that within a year we 
may have to ask Grand Lodge for a tightening upon our 
present list of recognized Grand Lodges, due to the finiitage 
of political and religious disturbances, principally in South 
and Central America. 

It is perhaps well to emphasize that the matter of 
recognition is only a portion of the duties of this Committee 
on Fraternal Relations. In a wider, and quite as important 
a sense, it is the special function of the Committee, indeed, 
its imperative duty, to carefully watch conditions as they 
develop throughout the Masonic world, to be. as it were, 
the conning tower from which we may evaluate what is 
going on in other Grand Lodges. It is ours to flash here 
a red light and there one of green as a guide for Ontario 
Freemasonry. 

This Committee is made up of all who have served the 
office of Grand Master, together ^^'ith the Deputy Grand 
Master and the Grand Secretary. While it is not always 
possible to secure unanimity on matters that are in any way 
controversial it is not unfair to state that the Committee is 
exceptional in that it represents a body of opinion that is 
informed by long experience and a careful and knowledgeable 
regard for all that is best in Canadian Freemasonry, 



158 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

It is the judgment of the Committee that at the present 
time one oz* two facts need to be stressed: 

In most matters of legislation this Committee nourishes 
an earnest desire to follow carefully in the foot-steps of 
British Freemasonry both in procedure and in regard to 
relations with other ruling bodies in Masonry. Further, 
we are quite unable to subscribe whole heartedly to the 
doctrine of "Universal Freemasonry," if to do so means to 
accept practically on a wholesale basis eveijything that labels 
itself as Masonic. To us not all that claims to be Masonic 
is truly so, and we view with some alarm a universality that 
can be universal in name only. In the foreseeable future 
the time may come when this matter will have to be further 
dealt with. 

In the meantime there should be a reemphasis on the 
fact that in the matter of recog-nition each Grand Lodge is 
master of its own house, that recognition is exclusively a 
Craft matter and that all authority in regard thereto is 
vested exclusively in the Grand Lodges. It should be added 
that Conference's, whether national or international, are 
welcome in an advisory capacity. Indeed we are grateful 
in particular to the efficient advisory committee of the 
Washington Conference as well as for information that comes 
from certain brethren who are specially interested. But it 
is impossible to avoid a certain uneasiness. 

There are other matters that presently merit our thought: 
For instance, it was only tv;o years ago that we extended 
recognition to the newly created United Grand Lodge of 
Germany, made up of some 260 lodges resurrected from the 
anti-Masonic Nazi regime and with the capable Dr. Vogel, 
personally known to some of us, as the Grand Master. 
During the past year this Grand Lodge has united with the 
Grosse Landesloge which is composed of some 82 lodges 
working in Germany under the Swedish Rite. It is not 
ours to criticise the union, for the Swedish Rite is worked 
by more than one of the Scandinavian Grand Lodges which 
are quite properly recognized by British and Canadian Free- 
masonry. But the fact remains that the "United Grand 
Lodges of Germany" of which Dr. Vogel is now the Grand 
Master is not the Grand Lodge that we recognized two years 
ago, and it is our opinion that there should be another ap- 
plication for recognition because to leave things as they are 
might lead to a time when we would have to deal with a so- 
called General Grand Lodge, from which may the fates 
defend us. 

In France a situation of another kind has developed. 
There are three Grand Organizations in that country, only 
one of which (the Grand Lodge Nationale) is recognized by 
us or by British Freemasonry. Of the other two the Grand 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 159 

Orient is outside the pale, being largely atheistic. In the 
Grand Lodge of France many of the lodges refuse to have 
the V.O.S.L. on their altars. An attempt has been made, 
60 far unsuccessfully, to unite the Grand Lodge Nationale 
and the Grand Lodge of France, but certain difficulties 
stand in the way, some ritualistic and some administrative. 
It may be stated that as far as we are concerned there can 
be no recognition unless the Masonic fundamental as to the 
V.O.S.L. is universally observed. 

Certainly, brethren, these are not easy days in which 
it is ours to hold high the torch of true Freemasonry, days 
that are so unsettled, so racked by new conceptions of human 
relations, and in the process so anchorless. It may well 
be that it is for Freemasonry to be foremost among those 
who strive to maintain the saving principles of conduct and 
of thought, the tried and everlastingly true fundamentals 
on which all real hope of happiness depends, the inner 
arcanum of Masonic wisdom — that the Great Architect of 
the Universe is truly our Father, that He has revealed His 
will to men, and that all of us, irrespective of race, color or 
creed, are brothers. This is indeed Freemasonry in 
excelsis — and there is no other. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

FRANK A. COPUS, 

Chairman. 

ADDRESS OF LOYALTY 

It was moved by ]\I.W. Bro. J. A. McRae and 
seconded by M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, that the follow- 
ing' Address of Loyalty be adopted by this Grand 
Lodg-e for transmission to Her Majesty, Queen 
Elizabeth II through the Secretary of State for 
Canada : 

TO HER MAJESTY, QUEEN ELIZABETH II 

May it please your Majesty: 

The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario, now assembled in the 
City of Toronto in its One Hundredth and Fourth Annual 
Communication, desires to express anew to your Gi-acious 
Majesty their sincere and abiding loyalty to your Pei-son 
and Throne, and will ever pray that your reign may be long 
and illustrious and continue to be one of peace and prosperity, 
promoting, in the highest degree, the happiness and welfare 
of all your subjects in every part of the British Common- 
wealth. 



160 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The members of this fraternity rejoice that Her Majesty 
and her Royal Consort, Prince Philip, are again visiting 
Canada. They have been received everywhere with loud 
acclaim and manifest joy, testifying to the loyalty, esteem 
and affection in which their Monarch and Prince Philip are 
held by Canadians from coast to coast. We are confident 
that the lengthy and arduous journey that Her Majesty and 
Prince Philip are making through the length and breadth 
of this land, will strengthen, everywhere, the ties that bind 
us to the Throne and will deepen the loyalty which we are 
proud to acknowledge we owe to our Sovereign, Queen 
Elizabeth. 

The resolution was unanimously carried by a 
standing vote of the members \Wth great applause.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
CONSTITUTION AND LAWS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. T. H. 
Simpson, Chairman, and on his motion, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Constitution and Law begs leave to 
report as follows: 

PART ONE: 

1. There is no constitutional objection to the follo^ving 
Notices of Motion given by M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart and dated 
April 24th, 1959: 

(a) That Section 62 of the Constitution be deleted and 
the following substituted therefor: 

"Section 62: During the temporary absence of 
the Grand Master from the Province, or during his 
temporary incapacity, from any cause, to discharge the 
duties of his office, the Deputy Grand Master, or failing 
him, the junior Past Grand Master shall possess all the 
powers of the Grand Master. Should the Grand Master 
die during his term of office, or become pemanently 
incapable of discharging the duties thereof, the Deputy 
Grand Master, or failing him, the junior Past Grand 
Master shall forthwith be entitled to exercise the 
functions of Grand Master until the next annual 
election." 

(b) That Section 14 of the Constitution be deleted and 
the following substituted therefor: 

"Section 14: The place at which the next Annual 
Communication of Grand Lodge is to be held shall be 
determined by the Board of General Purposes." 

However, your Committee suggests a change in the 
wording of the proposed amendment to Section 62 which it 
feels is simpler and more concise. It is as follows: 



162 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

VACANCIES IN OFFICE 

SECTION 62: 

(a) In case of the death, resignation or permanent dis- 
ability of the Grand Master, the Deputy Grand Master 
shall act, ex officio, as Grand Master until the next 
annual meeting of Grand Lodge at which meeting the 
vacancy shall be filled for the unexpired term by election. 

(b) In case of the temporary disability, by absence or 
otherwise, of the Grand Master, the Deputy Grand 
Master shall act, ex officio, until the Grand Master 

shall resume his duties. 

(c) In the event of the death, resignation, or permanent 
or temporary disability of both the Grand Master and 
the Deputy Grand Master, then the Immediate Past 
Grand Master, or if he decline or be disabled, then the 
next immediate Past Grand Master not disabled, shall 
act, ex-officio, as Grand Master until the disability is 
removed or until the next annual meeting of Grand 
Lodge, at which meeting all vacancies then existing 
shall be filled by election for the unexpired portions of 
their respective terms. 

(d) Vacancies in all other elective offices shall be filled 
by election at the next annual meeting of Grand Lodge, 
until which time they shall be filled by appointment by 
the Grand Master. 

PART TWO: 

CHANGE OF NAME — MUSKOKA DISTRICT 

2. All of the Lodges in the Muskoka District (8 in all) 
have petitioned asking that their District be renamed and in 
future be known as Muskoka-Parry Sound District. Since 
every Lodge in the District is in favor of this change your 
Committee sees no objection. Your Committee recommends 
that the Petition be granted and that the name of Muskoka 
District be changed to that of Muskoka-Parry Sound District, 
effective forthwith. 

PART THREE: 

CONCURRENT JURISDICTION 

Mount Olivet Lodge, Number 300, located at Thomdale 
and Belmont Lodge, Number 190, located at Belmont, both in 
the London District, have requested that they be granted 
concurrent jurisdiction with the various Lodges in the City 
of London and three other Lodg-es now having concurrent 



M' TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 168 

jurisdiction in the same area. All of the 14 Lodges con- 
cerned in this application have approved of the requests. 
Your Committee can see no objection to this. This is a 
very compact District, the fuithest Lodge from London being 
less than 20 miles. Your Committee, therefore, recommends' 
that concurrent jurisdiction be granted to all those Lodges 
which are now or which may hereafter be located within 
the jurisdiction of the following Lodges: Nilestown Lodge, 
No. 345, Nilestown; Kilwinning Lodge, No. 64, London; 
Tuscan Lodge, No. 195, London; St. John's Lodge, No. 20, 
London; St. Paul's Lodge, No. 107, Lambeth; Acacia Lodge, 
No. 580, London; Corinthian Lodge, No. 330, London; Temple 
Lodge, No. 597, London; St. John's Lodge, No. 209A, London; 
Ashlar Lodge, No. 610, Byron; St. George's Lodge, No. 42, 
London; King Solomon's Lodge, No. 378, London; Union 
Lodge, No. 380, London; Centennial Lodge, No. 684, London; 
Mount Olivet Lodge, No. 300, Thomdale, and Belmont Lodge, 
No. 190, Belmont, such change to be effective forthwith. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted,

1€4 GKAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ation of Grand Lodge, have been reviewed by the members 
of the standing Ck)m.mittee on Audit and Finance. 

The Committee finds that these reports fully and 
accurately set out all details relative and pertaining to — 

(a) the financial position of this Grand Lodge for the 
year ended May 31, 1959; 

(b) all items of receipts and disbursements in respect 
of the General Fund and the Combined Memorial 
and Semi-Centennial Funds; 

(c) full details of all transactions and changes in the 
capital account, which have occurred during the year 
under review, and 

(d) complete schedules of the securities in which Grand 
Lodge funds were invested, as of the above ment- 
ioned date. 

The total par value of the above mentioned securities^ 
as of May 31. 1959, was $1,319,285.59; cash on hand and in 
the bank amounted to $15,697.84, making the total of all 
resources $1,334,983.43, as reported by the Grand Treasurer^ 
which is $27,104.20 greater than the corresponding figure 
for the previous year. 

All securities in which Grand Lodge funds are presently 
invested are in the category of Trustee investments, except 
$85,000.00 of debentures of Masonic Holdings, a non-profit 
corporation, without share capital, organized for the purposes 
of acquiring and owning real and personal property, also 
financing the construction and equipment of new Grand 
Lodge offices in the City of Hamilton. These debentures 
were purchased by the Grand Treasurer under the authority 
of a resolution of this Grand Lodge, unanimously passed at 
its meeting in July 1956. (See Grand Lodge Proceedinga 
1956, pp. 184-86 inc.). 

To provide all the necessary funds for the acquisition 
of the site and the erection of these offices, additional 
purchases of debentures issued or to be issued by Masonie 
Holdings will be made from time to time by the Grand 
Treasurer. It is the opinion of this Committee that although 
the resolution previously cited adequately empowers the 
Grand Treasurer, in general terms, to purchase, subscribe 
for, hold, sell or othei-Avise deal with the securities, mortgages 
or any obligations of Masonic Holdings, Grand Lodge should 
I'atify and confirm purchases made to date and specify at 
this meeting, by formal resolution, the total amount of such 
debentures which the Grand Treasurer may be authorized 
and directed to purchase under the terms of the aforesiaid 
resolution of 1956. 



TOROJ4TO, ONTARIO, 1959 165 

With relatively few exceptions, for each of which there 
is a logical reason, all securities are registered as to princi- 
pal in the name of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada 
in the Province of Ontario and registered also as to interest, 
save in such instances as it was not permissible to do so, 
All such securities are held in the custody of The Canada 
Permanent Trust Corporation, of Toronto, in vaults which 
have the highest protective rating. These conditions are 
designed to provide the maximum possible protection. 

However, your Committee recommends that some ac- 
ceptable form of authority be set up by resolution duly 
passed at this Communication of Grand Lodge to provide for 
prompt disposition by sale, assignment and/or transfer as 
occasion may require, of all or part of such bonds, debentures, 
shares and/or any other securities registered in the name of 
this Grand Lodge. 

The income under the General Fund was $196,417.72, or 
$4,017.72 higher than was estimated a year ago. This waa 
mainly due to a greater return on Grand Lodge investments 
than was anticipated. Total disbursements amounted to 
$171,112.55, or $13,052.45 less than the approved budget. 
This difference was almost entirely due to the fact that 
withdrawals from the General Fund for Benevolent Grants 
during the past fiscal year were approximately $15,000.00 
less than the amount appropriated for this purpose. With 
slight variations, up or down, other items of disbursements 
were generally in accord with the budget approved at the 
last Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge. This 
indicates a strict and careful control of expenditures by the 
Grand Secretary's and Grand Treasurer's offices. 

Benevolent Grants, made under the direction of the Com- 
mittee on Benevolence and the supervision of the Supei-visor 
of Benevolence, amounted in total to $79,069.75, which is 
$5,907.25 less than grants for this purpose during the previ- 
ous year. It was also $20,930.25 less than the estimates 
submitted by the Committee on Benevolence in its report 
to Grand Lodge a year ago. Contributing factors to these 
marked reductions are the effect of increases in recent years 
in the amount of Government Old Age Pension payments 
and the benefits to be derived under the provisions of the 
Ontario Hospital Services Commission Act. Your Com- 
mittee further confirms the Grand Treasurer's comment that 
no cases of need which fall vrithin the purview of the re- 
sponsibility of this Grand Lodge have been neglected to the 
slightest degree. 

We take the opportunity of again extending a tribute 
of commendation to the Chairman and members of this Com- 
mittee, especially the Supervisor of Benevolence, R.W. Bro. 
George J. McQueen, for the kindly, conscientious and consider- 



166 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ate manner in which these important Grand Lodge activities 
are administered. 

In accordance with previous practice, we recommend 
that the requirements for Benevolent Grants for the current 
year, estimated at $85,000.00 be drawn from Grand Lodge 
funds as follows: 

From the General Fund $ 65,000.00 

From the income and invested income of the 
Combined Memorial and Semi- Centennial 
Fiinds 20,000.00 

The estimate for the current year of income and ex- 
penditures in respect of the General Fund, as submitted 
with this report, provide for an apportionment on this basis. 

Your Committee recommends approval of the six special 
donations made under the authority of the Grand Master 
and as reported by the Grand Treasurer, namely: 

Ontario Society for Crippled Children $1,000.00 

Ontario Society for Retarded Children 500.00 

Boy Scouts' Association — Ontario 500.00 

Girl Guides' Association 500.00 

Canadian Cancer Society 500.00 

Salvation Army 500.00 

Total $3,500.00 

Details of the insurance coverage placed by Grand Lodge 
and currently in effect have been checked by our Auditor 
and considered by this Committee. A periodic review of 
all insurable assets and risks is recommended to ensure that 
all Grand Lodge property is adequately covered against loss 
by fire, theft or otherwise. The Committee expresses the 
opinion that replacement values should be the governing 
factor in determining the amount and. character of the 
insurance which may be required. 

In its review of the matters covered by this report, the 
Committee has received the full co-operation and assistance 
of the Grand Secretary, the Grand Treasurer and the Auditor 
and now formally recommends the adoption, without amend- 
ment, of the reports submitted by the above mentioned 
officers, who are to be commended on the conscientious and 
faithful performance of their respective duties. The inter- 
esting and informative statements which they have presented 
deserve the thoughtful consideration of all Brethren in this 
Jurisdiction. 

We now present for your consideration and approval, an 
estimate of Income and Expenditure under the General 
Fund for the current year:

REPORT OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON 
LODGE BUILDINGS 

This report was presented by V.W. Bro. George 
T. Evans, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by V.W. Bro. Evans, it was received and 
adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to present the Second Annual Report of the 
Ad\asory Committee on Lodge Buildings. 



170 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Since our report of a year ago, there has been great 
activity in the planning of new Temples and the remodelling 
of existing: ones throughout the Jurisdiction. 

From the time our Committee was organized, we have 
given advice and assistance to about 35 of our constituent 
Lodges, and now, hardly a month passes but that two or 
more Lodges seek information in this connection. 

This activity has largely been confined to the smaller 
centres, many of which are in the northern parts of the 
province. Many new Lodges with comparatively small 
memberships are showing great zeal in providing theniselves 
with comfortable quarters in which they take great pride. 

Many of our older Lodges, especially in the smaller 
centres closer to our large cities, would do well to take a 
hard look at their Masonic quarters to see if they adequately 
reflect the proud position held by the Masonic Craft in our 
Province and indeed, throughout the world. 

There are, no doubt, many Lodges whose officers did 
not hear, nor have they read our report of 1958. This is 
indicated by the fact that, in submitting sketches or making 
enquiries regarding building, they have ignored or are 
totally unaware of the enactment by Grand Lodge in 1958 
of a list of "Requirements for Lodge Buildings" as prepared 
by your Advisory Committee. For this reason we think 
it would be of great value if Secretaries and Masters would 
read our first report which can be found on page 181 of the 
Grand Lodge Proceedings for 1958. 

We strongly urge that Lodges contemplating new build- 
ings or making even minor changes in existing buildings, 
should write to the Grand Secretary for a copy of "Require- 
ments for Lodge Buildinscs" known as Bulletin L.B.-2, 
BEFORE any move is made to prepare sketches or set up 
financial arrangements. This will save the lodge officers 
much time and effort and the Advisory Committee many 
hours in trying to revise unsuitable plars and in explaining 
details which are already clearly set out in the Bulletin. 

The Grand Secretary will also provide the Procedure 
to be followed in setting up committees, preparing plans, 
selecting a site, methods of financing, and other important 
matters. He also has diagram plans of three typical Temple 
layouts of various sizes showing precisely how the Require- 
ments for Lodge Buildings should be carried out. Copies 
of these plans may be had free of charge on application to 
him. 

Your Committee has been pleased with the co-operation 
of the Lodges and the willingness with which they have 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 171 

accepted our suggestions and alterations to the plans they 
have submitted. 

We congratulate these Lodges on their industry and en- 
thusiasm, V/e share their joy and satisfaction in providing 
Temples of which they and the Craft may be justly proud. 

We solicit enquiries from all Lodges contemplating 
building and assure them of our constant desire to offer 
them every assistance. Needless to say, there is no charge 
for such services. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

GEORGE T. EVANS, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COM:RinTEE ON 
THE CONDITION OF MASONRY 

Tills report was presented by R.W. Bro. M. C. 
Cain, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Cain, it was received 
and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge. A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In these troublous times, when all democratic institutions 
are passing through the fires of a changing world, it is 
advisable to pause and reflect on the condition of Masonry 
in our o^^Tl Grand Jurisdiction. 

Any summary on the condition of Masonry, which is 
based on the thoughts of others, must be considered from 
two standpoints, firstly — the source of the information, and 
secondly — a careful analysis of the thoughts which are 
presented. This summary is based in part on the available 
reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters. A careful 
study of these reports reveal that our District Deputy Grand 
Masters are men devoted to the welfare of the Craft. They 
are men who have given of their time and talent to the 
propagation of Masonic knowledge. They are men who, 
through their zeal for Masonry, have given leadership in 
their respective districts. Having established the source 
of part of our information, we are in a position to carefully 
analyze the reports. An analysis of the information in 
these reports must be considered from two aspects, firstly — 



172 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the tan.rrible, and secondly — the intangible. The tangible are 
those ideas which are easy to grasp and to describe. The in- 
tangible are those ideas of the spirit or heart, those things 
which v;e feel but do not see, and are difficult of expression. 
Since Masonry is a large fraternity, it is expected that prob- 
lems are bound to occur. Your Committee feels that these 
problems should be drawn to your attention, and we trust 
you will accept them in the same spirit as they are given. 
Your Committee, mindful of these difficulties, begs to sub- 
mit a word picture of the condition of Masonry in this Grand 
Jurisdiction. 

The District Deputy Grand Masters, in their reports, 
express their thanks for the honour of representing the 
Most Worshipful, the Grand Master. They commented on 
the gracious and traditional manner in which they were 
received and indicated the respect and fraternal esteem 
with which our Grand Master is held in all parts of our 
jurisdiction. 

The reports indicate that the District Secretaries have 
performed their duties in an efficient manner, often-times 
rendering extra service which lightened the tasks of the 
District Deputy Grand Masters. Generally speaking the 
finances of the Lodges are on a sound basis. Very little 
i-eference is made of arrears of dues, which would seem to 
indicate a real effort is being made to cope with this vexing 
problem. 

The ritualistic work is commented on in various reports 
and is classed from satisfactory to excellent. Numerous 
comments were made on the high calibre of the candidates 
entering the Craft. A few reports suggest that means 
should be taken to improve the attendance at the regular and 
emergent meetings. 

In the annual report of the Grand Secretary, we note 
our membership as cf the 31st of December, 1957, stood at 
134,624. During the year 1958 we had 4,114 initiations; 
1,011 affiliations; 240 reinstatements giving us a total of 
139,989 members. Against this total we had 2,633 deaths; 
1,024 resignations; 864 suspensions and 4 adjustments. 
These figures indicate an actual membership as of December 
31st, 1958, of 135,464 which gives us a net increase over 
1957 of 840 members. This net increase of membership 
is a modest one, being 386 less than 1957. The disturbing 
factor in this report is the number of suspensions which is 
stated as 864. On comparing the reports for the last ten 
years, we note there has been a steady decline in the annual 
net gain of membership, and an increase in the number of 
suspensions. Does this indicate a loss of interest in the 
Craft? This lack of interest may also reflect itself in the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 173 

attendance at our regular and emergent meetings. A great 
many Lodges, especially in the larger centres, have had from 
a modest to a fairly large increase in membership for the 
past several years, but the increase of attendance at the 
meetings, allowing for natural losses, has not increased in 
proportion to the increase in membership. With this 
problem in mind your Committee sought advice from widely 
separated pax'ts of our jurisdiction in an effort to arrive at 
some solution to this vexing problem. The following is a 
summary of the suggestions sent to your Committee. 

1. Great care should be taken by the sponsors of an ap- 
plicant to make sure he will find congenial companion- 
ship in the Lodge of his choice. 

2. The Worshipful Master should appoint only interested 
and qualified brethren to make a thorough investigation 
of the applicant. The investigators should be satisfied 
that the applicant can and will accept the challenge of 
Masonry, namely, "Masons are men who think deeply, 
feel nobly, and act their best." Every investigator 
should be thoroughly conversant with the contents of 
Booklet No. 1. issued by our Grand Lodge, which out- 
lines what Masonry stands for. The facts outlined in 
this booklet should be discussed with the applicant, and 
the booklet should be left in his possession for his further 
study. 

3. A brother, having been received, should not be forgotten. 
Special efforts should be made to ensure that he feels 
at home by meeting the brethren of his Lodge. 

4. An intelligent Mason is an interested Mason. Our new 
brethren should be instructed by skilled brethren in 
the landmarks, traditions, history, symbology and phil- 
osophy of the Craft. 

6. Many brethren felt that late closing of the Lodge was an 
important factor, causing poor attendance and lack of 
interest. 

The following suggestions were offered to overcome 
this factor. 

(a) Careful planning of all meetings. 

(b) Controversial subjects should be thoroughly dis- 
cussed at the Committee of General Purposes, thereby 

avoiding unnecessary discussion in the lodge room. 

(c) Meetings should start on time. 



174 GRAND DODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

(d) Avoid having too many degrees at a meeting. Too 

much work requires some brethren to forego the 

pleasure of the banquet hour. One brother aptly 

stated — "A Mason should be in bed on the same day 

he goes to Lodge." 

6. A Mason, admitted to a large Lodge, finds he is one 
among so many, and realizes that the possibility of 
participation in lodge activities seems to be remote 
and he loses interest. 

7. The suggestion has been made that the brethren of the 
Lodge should be given the opportunity to take appropriate 
parts of the ritualistic work according to their ability 
and desire. Members* Nights serv'^e as a means of 
holding interest in the Lodge and, at the same time, 
stamp worthy brethren for advancement. 

8. Counter attractions such as television were advanced by 
a few of the brethren, but others felt that, if the main 
causes as outlined were eliminated, then counter at- 
tractions would be of small importance. 

You will note that six of the eight causes of lack of 
interest and poor attendance are under the direct control 
of the Worshipful Master and his Officers. 

Addison has said — "A person who has a firm trust in 
the Supreme Being is powerful by his power, wise by his 
wisdom, and happy by his happiness." It might also be said 
that any fraternity built on the solid foundation of spiritual 
values will flourish. It is gratifying to note that a District 
Chaplain was appointed in all districts. All reports indicate 
his services were much appreciated by the District Deputy 
Grand Masters and the brethren. It was interesting to note 
that in some districts the District Chaplain accompanied 
the District Deputy Grand Master on all or nearly all his 
official visits. On numerous occasions the District Chaplain 
spoke at the banquet hour with a message of the eternal 
verities of life. These same reports indicate that our Grand 
Chaplain has travelled far and v/ide in the discharge of his 
official duties as well as attending many other functions. 
On many occasions he was the guest speaker, impressing on 
the brethren that "Masonry is a key to the things of the 
spirit, an inspiration for daily living by laying out a pattern 
of life." The District Reports indicate there were thirty 
District Church Services -s\ath attendances which generally 
brought credit to the Craft. One or two reports indicate 
that the attendance at the District Service was disappointing. 
Unfortunately this is true in some of our larger centres 
where the attendance is not commensurate with the member- 



VIOIT;, TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 175 

ship of the district. Care should be taken that Lodge 
Divine Services do not conflict with the District Service. 



Generally speaking, benevolence is not a natural feeling 
of the human heart. "By nature the average man is more 
prone to be selfish than generous, more inclined to get for 
himself than to give to others, more ready to claim for him- 
self than to sacrifice himself for others." In Masonry, we 
have an old adage — "No voice of a brother in distress 
reaches our ears in vain, and no hand seeks our aid without 
response." This saying, so dear to the hearts of all Masons, 
is proven by the report of the Committee of Benevolence, 
The success of our benevolence is due in large measure to our 
Super\nsor of Benevolence and his excellent committee.. Our 
Supervisor by his tact, understanding and kindness has 
brought joy and comfort to many of our brethren and their 
dependents. 

Ernest Thompson Seton has said — "Manhood, not scholar- 
ship, is the aim of education." This quotation accurately 
describes the objective of Masonic Education in our jurisdic- 
tion. The success of our Masonic educational endeavours 
is due in large part to the devoted attention and scholarly 
^idance given to this work by the present and past chairmen 
of the Committee of Masonic Education. The District 
Reports indicate that thirty-one of the districts had Super- 
visors of Masonic Education. There was a decrease in the 
number of Lodges of Instruction, with a trend to short talks 
and panel discussions. In districts where Lodges of Instruct- 
ion were held, the results appear to be encouraging, as was 
evidenced by the comments that such meetings help to make 
the ritualistic work uniform in the district by correcting the 
changes and innovations which seem to creep into the v%'ork. 
An interesting suggestion was made by a District Deputy 
Grand Master from the northwest part of our jurisdiction — 
"It is suggested that a School of Instruction be set un at 
each Annual Meeting of Grand Lodge for members of Lodges 
in general." It is of some concern to your Committee that 
the "Syllabus of Instruction", issued by Grand Lodge, is 
not being used in some Lodges as much as its value merits. 

"Reading maketh a full man." Those words of Bacon 
are just as true today as they were over three hundred and 
fifty years ago. In reviewing the report of the Library 
Committee, v/e note only about one per cent of our member- 
ship make use of the facilities of their excellent library. It 
is suggested that all new Masons be informed of this facility 
and be urged to use it. Our Grand Librarian informs us 
that the District Deputy Grand Masters could be of great 
help by informing the brethren of their districts of the 
advantages of the library. 



176 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL (X>MMUNICATION 

It is noted in the district reports that about half the 
districts have Pastmasters' and "Wardens' Associations.^ In 
some districts the two Associations are merged, while in 
others they are separate. In the Wardens' Associations 
lasting friendships are made. In some of these Associations, 
speakers address the group on the duties and responsibilities 
of the Master of a Lodge. These groups usually have a 
mentor who carefully trains the Wardens in the ritualistic 
work. Visitations are made when the Wardens exemplify 
the work. This careful training and practice prepares the 
Warden for his duties as Worshipful Master of his Lodge 
and enhances the quality of the work throughout the district. 
The District Reports indicate in many districts that the 
Pastmasters' Associations are rendering commendable service 
to the Craft. They work in close conjunction with the 
District Deputy Grand Master in sponsoring and arranging 
Educational Nights. Many have given leadership in such 
matters as Blood Donor Services and assistance to Grand 
Lodge when required. The activities of these Associations 
have materially improved the condition of Masonry in our 
Grand Jurisdiction. 

The District Reports indicate that a fairly large number 
of Temples was dedicated during the last year. This sug- 
gests that Masons are becoming increasingly conscious of the 
necessity of up-to-date premises for the comfort of their 
brethren. They realize that the public impression of our 
Order is, in part, influenced by the physical appearance of 
our Temples. It is common knowledge that the cost of 
some Temples was almost halved by the free labour of the 
brethren and by securing the essential services at cost. The 
brethren who rendered these services deserve the thanks of 
their district. 

From the District Reports, it is noted that there have 
been a fairly large number of anniversaries. On almost 
every occasion the lodge history has played an important 
part in the work of the evening. This supports the oft- 
repeated suggestion that the maintenance of an up-to-date 
lodge history is a duty incumbent on each Lodge. Such 
records are invaluable for future use and study. 

It is with deep regret that we record the disastrous 
fire at Lanark, Ontario, in which Evergreen Lodge lost its 
Temple, waiTant and records. We sympathize with our 
brethren in their great loss. An experience such as this 
emphasize the importance of protecting irreplaceable records 
against such destruction. It also points out the necessity 
of re-examining our insurance protection in the light of 
present day replacement costs. 

During this Masonic year it has been the privilege of 
all the members of this Committee to visit Lodges in widely 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 177 

scattered parts of this Grand Jurisdiction. Your Com- 
mittee wishes to express its anxiety regarding the condition 
in some Lodges of the ancient certificates, manuscripts and 
records which appear to be undergoing deterioration due to 
extremes of temperature, dryness and dampness. This 
Committee respectfully suggests that a careful check be made 
of these records and suitable measures be taken for their 
preservation, thereby bringing joy to the Masons of the 
future. 

It is gratifying to note that the memory of our First 
Grand Master is still green in the minds of the brethren 
of this Grand Jurisdiction. At the Annual Pilgrimage, on 
June 21st of this year, at St. John's Church, Woodhouse, in 
the County of Norfolk, a large representative group of 
Masons assembled to pay their reverential respect to the 
memory of a great man. We feel the poet aptly described 
our First Grand Master when he said — 

"He walked the path the great have trod. 
The great in heart, the great in mind, 
He looked through Masonry to God, 
And looked through God to all mankind. 
Learned more than sign, or word, or grip, 
Learned Man's and God's relationship." 
The District Reports reveal that our Grand Master, 
during the past year, has visited many parts of this Grand 
Jurisdiction. It is noted on these occasions he was received 
in an enthusiastic traditional manner. It is further noted 
that, by his friendliness, untiring effort, sage advice and 
Masonic zeal, he has brought credit to himself and the Craft. 
As he lays down the gavel of office, the hope of the brethren 
of this Grand Jurisdiction is that the years which lie ahead 
will bring him health and happiness, so that he may enjoy 
the fruits of his professional labours, and still assist in the 
management of our Grand Lodge. 

In conclusion your Committee wishes to state that 
Masoni-y is thriving in our Grand Jurisdiction. Our mem- 
bership has increased satisfactorily. The finances of our 
Lodges are sound. Many new Temples have been erected 
and the older ones have been renovated. The spiritual 
concept of Masonry is well understood and practised. The 
ritualistic work, generally speaking, is of a high standard. 
Most of the districts have shown a keen interest in the 
history, sjiifibology, and philosophy of the Craft. No voice 
of a brother in distress has reached our ears in vain, and 
no hand has sought our aid without response. Peace and 
harmony prevail over our entiiie ju»risdiction. Divine 
Providence has blessed us in many ways. Surely we have 
much to be thankful for. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 
M. C. CAIN, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON ' 

MASONIC EDUCATION 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster, Chaimian, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand JVIaster, seconded by R.W. Bro. Foster it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Masonic Education is pleased to 
report its activities in this Grand Jurisdiction for the 
education year 1958-59 to the One Hundred and Fourth 
Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. 

During the year six General Communications have been 
forwarded from the Chairman's office to the members of the 
Committee, to the District Deputy Grand Masters, to the 
Supervisors of Masonic Education, to the several Lodges, 
through the courtesy of the District Deputy Grand Masters, 
and to others who requested them. Five of these com- 
munications were accompanied by bulletins containing 
material designed to be of interest to the Craft and cover- 
ing subjects related to symbolism, history, and philosophy. 
The sixth was the usual form for the District report on the 
work of the year. The Committee wishes in particular to 
thank R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, the Grand Secretary, for send- 
ing the interesting and informative article, written by W. 
Bro. John P. Simpson, entitled "The King and the Craft". 
This was sent out as the second bulletin. Your Committee 
hopes that the information it contained was brought to the 
attention of the general membership, as it was important 
enough to deserve this treatment. 

Continuinn- the practice nf former years, the "Syllabus 
of Instruction" was prepared, and distributed to all Lodges 
through the Grand Secretarv's office. Each issue covered 
a three-month period and drew attention to the history of 
our Grand Lodge, the Manual for Masonic Students and In- 
structors, the Bonk of Constitution, and the Annual Pro- 
ceedings of Grand Lodge. Renorts from the District Deputy 
Grand Masters indicate that many study groups continue to 
use the Syllabus as a guide for their discussions. 

It is a pleasure to report that R.W. Bro. Molson C. Cain, 
a most active member of this Committee, has held nine very 
stimulating Lodges of Instruction in the Jurisdiction and has 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1959 179 

participated in many "Educational Nights" in his home area 
of Toronto. We congratulate R.W. Bro. Cain and all those 
who assisted him, in their successful effort toward continuing 
education in the symbolism and practices of the Craft. 

From the thirty-five District reports, we record with 
satisfaction the continuing interest in the Manual for Masonic 
Students and Instructors, We feel, however, that more use 
should be made of this source of educational material. Per- 
haps more of the District Deputy Grand Masters could bring 
this volume to the attention of the members in their Districts. 
Also from these District reports your Committee must con- 
clude that while some Lodges appear to do little in the way 
of formal Masonic Education the majority find some way of 
handling this important phase of Masonic work. It is 
satisfying to note that there has been a definite increase in 
the number of Lodge meetings that included some Masonic 
Education although there were fewer District meetings de- 
voted entirely to this fundamental activity of Masonry. We 
find also the following suggestions for improving the work 
next year: (i) Twenty-one Districts favour short talks of 
five minutes' duration rather than longer ones; _(ii) Ten 
urge more panel discussions open later to questions from 
members on the sides; (iii) Eight suggest an interchange of 
speakers between neighbouring Lodges. Your Committee 
believes that these ideas are worthy of our consideration. Also 
interesting is the fact that of the thirty-five Districts report- 
ing only four are without a Supervisor of Masonic Education 
to co-ordinate the work of the District. Your Committee 
suggests that even where distances are great, a Supervisor 
is valuable as he can improve both the quality and the 
amount of the Masonic Education in the District. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes said: "It does not matter 
so much where one stands, as the direction in which he is 
moving." Lodges should ever be moving toward the goal 
of a Masonically educated membership. They need not 
move rapidly; a fairly slow 'one step at a time' policy is 
by tradition quite satisfactory. There is no such thing as 
a static Masonry. Masonry is forever the Mason learning, 
thinking, and achieving, step by step, day by day. Every 
success opens the door to another opportunity for greater 
learning, for further progress, for steady improvement. We 
strive and repeatedly fail, and through this process find the 
truth that all success is created from the broken pieces of 
failure. All of our efforts are wasted unless we forever 
keep in mind that Masonic Education, training, and study 
must be directed toward the practice of Brotherhood. 

Freemasonry, being a science of progressive enlighten- 
ment, must of necessity go hand in hand with education. 
For the Craft to achieve its ultimate objective, every member 
must, to the utmost of his ability, aid in the Masonic edu- 



180 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

cation of him^plf and his brethren. Every Mason must 
possess some knowledge of the traditions, history, aims, 
place in the sorial scheme, and lessons of the Craft. ^ We 
must all seriously consider the effect of Masonic teaching on 
ourselves, on our attitude toward God. and on our relation- 
ship wnth our fellow-men. 

Education is the cornerstone of our Masonic faith. It 
unites all of us in our search for truth and li^ht. We 
should tell our Brethren of our personal discoveries and our 
advances toward the light, and we should urge them onward 
in the search. Our annual losses in membership by sus- 
pensions would be lessened if we Avere to dn more than we do 
now in the educating of our members and in rnaking them 
active educators. Too often we have no designs on our 
Lodge trestleboards. Our Lodge officers need to use a more 
creative imagination; the harvest of such action can be great. 
Masonry's analogy of life to architecture enables the in- 
dividual to see beyond the menial tasks and to establish a true 
scale of values. It supplies us wtih a vision of a complete 
structure of grandeur and enables us to appreciate the 
significance of our own contribution. To achieve this 
vision and this appreciation, we must study. As Aristotle 
said, "The roots of learning are bitter, but the fruits are 
sweet." 

The Committee would like to express its appreciation to 
the District Deputy Grand Masters, the Supervisors, and all 
the Brethren who assisted in the Masonic Education pro- 
gramme. We sincerely hope that they may continue their 
efforts in the future. We wish also to thank the Grand 
Secretary for mailing out the Syllabus of Instruction to the 
Lodges, and the Grand Lodge Librarian for sending along 
useful material for our work. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

BRUCE B. FOSTER. 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

Tliis report was presented by M.W. Biro. J. P. 
Malher, for tlie Chairman, V.W. Bt*o. B. S. 
Edmondson, who was absent, and on motion of the 
DeDiity Gr'and Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. 
Maher, it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

This is the 27th occasion on which your Library Com- 



TORONTO. OiNTARIO, 1959 181 

mittee has presented a Report. The first one was in 1932, 
and since that time, each of the annually-appointed Com- 
mittees has, by a backward f?lance, endeavoured to sum up, 
fairly, just what has been done in its term of office, and 
also at times has made some suggestion which it thought 
that the next Committee might consider and appraise. In 
the following paragraphs, we will give an account of our 
stewardship. 

But first, Most Worshipful Sir, we must express our 
thanks to you for our appointment to this Committee, for 
having made us temporary custodians of this most valuable 
asset of our Grand Lodge, and thereby having given us the 
opportunity to hold up the lamp of Light and Wisdom as a 
beacon to guide and help our brethren along well-defined 
channels whereby they ma:/ reach pleasant harbors and safe 
anchorages along their journeys to the Golden Islands of 
Truth and Knowledge. 

It may be that there are quite a few here to-day who do 
not know much about our Library. For them, and as a 
reminder to others, vre can say that it is located in the 
Masonic Temple at 888 Yonge Street, Toronto; that it is 
a collection of approximately 5,000 volumes, — all of them 
Masonic. Any Master Mason in this Jurisdiction may 
borrow books from our shelves; there is no charge to the 
borrower of out-going books, but just two conditions as to 
their return: first, the borrower pays the return postage, 
and secondly, he is to return the books surely and promptly. 

Potential users of our Library should also be reminded 
that the nucleus of this literary storehouse was the very 
fine collection of Craft literature assembled by M.W. Bro. 
John Ross Robertson, Grand Master of 1890-91, and who at 
his death bequeathed this part of his own extensive library 
to our Grand Lodge. 

Of recent years, many donations of books have been 
made to add to the original collection; many purchases have 
been made of later published Masonic books, and in this way 
our Library always keeps abreast of the well-written learn- 
ing of the' Craft. Some of those who have made gifts to 
us in the past year are: 

Brother J. McHaffie, Coronati Lodge, No. 520, G.R.C. 
3 issues. Vols. LXIII, LXIX, and LXX of Transactions of 
Quatuor Coronati Lodge, London, England. 

Brother J. McHenry, Delta Lodere, No. 634, G.R.C, 3 
vols. History of Freemasonry by R. F. Gould. 

Brother William Ludlow. Tonic Lodge, No. 25 G.R.C, 2 
vols. Lodge Holyrood House, No. 44 S.C 



182 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

V.W. Bro. Frank Elliott, Fairbank Lodge, No. 592 G.R.C., 
a 7-volume set of the History of Freemasonry by Mackey 
& Singleton, 

From the Estate of R.W. Bro. Lou Redman, P.G.J.W., 5 
vols — Library of Freemasonry — Gould, 2 vols — Encyclopedia 
of Freemasonry — Mackey, 2 vols. — History of Freemasonry 
in Canada — Robertson. 

Added to the above books, a fine framed steel engraving, 
approx. 28 x 34, of the investiture of Robert Bums as Poet 
Laureate of Canongate Kilwinning in 1787. To these and 
other anonymous brethren, this Committee is very glad to 
place on the record our appreciation of their thoughtfulness 
and generosity in making these gifts. 

In order to give you an idea of the work which our 
Library has done, — and is still doing, — ^here are some figures 
that will tell of the activities by our Librarian during the 
past 12 months: 

Books sent out to borrowers, 

(a) local, (i.e. Toronto area) 316 

outside, (i.e. in Ontario) 337 

(b) Letters written 157 

(c) Visitors to the Library and Reading 
Room 576 

To the above total vnv.st be added the many telephone 
calls from outside to the Library, asking for information 
on such things as where one might purchase a Masonic 
book, where one might find guidance on Lodge or Grand 
Lodge personages, or perhaps some outsider to the Craft 
might want a suggestion or two as to how he could gain 
admission. These are not rare but day to day occurrences. 
Your Library serv^es as an information centre, not only 
for members but also non-members of the Fraternity. 

As to furniture, your Committee would like to report 
that a display cabinet, first suggested in our 1957 report 
has been manufactured and delivered. This is a fine 
piece of cabinet work. It has a plate glass viewing top 
and below it eleven identical drawers, any of which may be 
displayed under _ the top glass. In these drawers are 
being stored ancient charters, regalia and books of inestim- 
able value. Many of these items are over 100 years old. 
One cannot help but sense that future generations will take 
a lively interest in such souvenirs of the early days of our 
Order here in Ontario. 

To sum up, our accommodation at 888 is central and 
convenient; our assembled collection is certainly the best in 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 IM 

Canada and in the first rank with any purely Masonic 
Library in America. It has been, and will continue to be 
a most valuable asset of this Grand Lodge, not merely as an 
exhibit, but as a strong arm in the field of Masonic Edu- 
cation. And here we must mention the good support that 
has been given to us by so many of the Lodge Secretaries. 
In their Summonses they have so often reminded their 
members that the Library exists and is ready to serve. 

As to the future, we wish to recommend two expendi- 
tures. First is the printing of an up-to-date book list. 
This has been in the process of preparation for some months, 
and is now ready for the printer. The estimated cost of 
completing this work is approximately $150.00. Secondly, 
a four drawer filing cabinet, legal size, is absolutely nec- 
essary to look after our correspondence and records. Such 
a piece of equipment can probably be purchased for ap- 
proximately $60.00. 

In closing, we would like to point up the value of our 
Library by quoting a sentence or two on the subject aa 
written by wise men and thinkers of past years. Joseph 
Addison, writing in 'The Spectator' opined that "Books are 
the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which 
are delivered down from generation to generation, as pres- 
ents to the posterity of those v\'ho are yet unborn;" and 
Edward Dyer reminds us that "Libraries are the wardrobes 
of literature, whence men, properly informed, might bring 
forth something for ornament, much for curiosity, and more 
for use." 

Grand Master, we thank you for having given us the 
opportunity to be identified with this Committee. We feel 
that in the past year our Library has well served its purpose, 
and we wish for our successors an even wider measure of at- 
tainment than that upon which it is our pleasure to report 
to-day. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Committee, 

BYRON S. EDMONDSON, 

Chairmaiu

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. D. J. 
Gunn, Chaiiiman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gunn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Once again we pause in our deliberations to record the 
grievous losses we have sustained in the passing to the 
Grand Lodge Above of many stalwart Masons who in other 
years had been our companions at the Annual Communications 
of Grand Lodge. Each year the Grim Reaper takes his toll 
of some of the most distinguished of our number, leaving 
gaps in our ranks that are not easily filled. It must not be 
forgotten that Grand Lodge is not only the poorer because 
of their transition to a higher sphere of service, but many 
constituent lodges sorrow for those experienced Past Masters 



T0R01«JT0, ONTARIO, 1959 18* 

who have been towers of strength in their own lodges as 
well as having rendered service of great value to Grand 
Lodge, 

Yet we do not sorrow as those without hope, for the 
teachings of Masonry remind us of our belief in the immort- 
ality of the soul. It has been said many times that Masonry is 
not a religion, but a beautiful system of morality. All who 
clearly understand its teachings and philosophy appreciate its 
limitations, and this understanding was most fittingly ex- 
pressed in his report to Grand Lodge by an eminent Mason 
who was once Chairman of this Committee: 

"As has so often been said, Masoniy is not, in itself, an 
end, it is a means to an end. Freemasonry,if we are obedi- 
ent to its precepts, can conduct us safe and conduct us far 
along life's highway, but no philosophy however edifying, 
no system of morality however beautiful, can reach beyond 
the finite; one may plant, the other may water, but neither 
can insure that increase of faith and that growth of grace 
which have their fruition in the spiritual realm." 

These departed brethren for whom we mourn would not 
wish us to portray them in extravagant temis for they were 
even as we are, human and fallible. Rather would they wish 
us to cast over their foibles the broad mantle of a Mason's 
Charity and to gratefully remember and endeavour to em- 
ulate their virtues. The record of their services to FVee- 
masonry is complete, and the inspiration of their achieve- 
ments remains with all who were happy to call them friends 
and brethren. While they have passed to the Grand Lodge 
Above, they yet speak to us in the eloquent words of the 
poet : 

"The Clock of Life is wound but once 
And no man hath the power 
To tell just when the hands will stop 
Now is the only time you own; 
Live, love, toil with a will. 
Place no faith in Tomorrow, for 
The clock may then be still." 

There is another and urgent message which our departed 
brethren have for us, the living. It has been truly said 
that all human institutions are but one generation removed 
from extinction and Freemasonry is no exception. The un- 
seen voices of our friends from the Great Beyond are asking 
us if we are doing all that is in our power to imbue in our 
younger members the teachings, philosophy and traditions of 
our Ancient Craft which we in turn received from our fathers 
in Masonry. Over the centuries. Masonry has lived in 
constant challenge and perhaps never more so than in this 
materialistic age. this era of the Atom, with its great 



186 GRAND LOIXJE OF CANABA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

potentiality for human advancement, and its equally great 
threat of human extinction. 

And so with this urgent challenge to us we leave our 
departed brethren who have finished their course, who have 
kept the faith and entered into their reward. Their works 
are not forgotten, and their memories remain with us. Of 
one or many of these, our honoured dead, we can say: 

"His presence lingers on about the room, 
His footsteps echo still upon the floor; 
The brightness of his smile dispels the gloom, 
Though he has slipped away, and closed the door. 
So, biding here today I feel — I know, 
Whichever way his fading footsteps wend; 
A little time, then that way I shall go. 
He was my friend. 

The working tools have fallen from his grasp, 
The journey ended for his weary feet; 
Death holds his tired hand in gentle clasp; 
His work is done; his temple is complete." 

In grateful appreciation of their contribution to Free- 
masonry, let us now pay silent tribute to these departed 
brethren:

This a'epoii; was presented by R.W. Bix). J. R..

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada,. 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Grievances and Appeals S'ubmits its 
report in the following parts; 

1. HURON-BRUCE LODGE, No. 611, versus W. BRO. 
NESBITT M. WOODS. 

This case came before this Committee and Grand Lodge 
in July, 1958. Reference to the report made to and approved 
by Grand Lodg« at that time indicates that W. Bro. Woods 
was found guilty in the Magistrate's Court for the city of 
Toronto on a charge of gross indecency and that subsequently 
a charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in and accepted by 
the Lodge. The charge in the Lodge was that W. Bro. 
Woods was guilty of a public crime and misdemeanour 
involving moral turpitude under Rule 1 (p). 

A Commission appointed by the Grand Master, at the 
request of the Lodge, to investigate the circumstances of the 
charge reported that the accused was guilty of unmasonic 
conduct and recommended that he be expelled from member- 
ship in the Craft. 

A year ago this Committee concurred in the finding' 
of the Commission and recommended that W. Bro. Nesbitt 
M. Woods be notified to appear at this Communication of 
Grand Lodge to show cause why he should not be exi>elled. 
He has been so notified but he has not appeared. 

Your Committee now recommends that W. Bro. Nesbitt 
M. Woods be expelled. 

2. ST. CLAIR LODGE, No. 577, versus BRO. GORDON 
G. HOOPER. 

This matter came before this Committee and before 
Grand Lodge first in July, 1957, and subsequently in Jiily^ 
1968. 



198 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

A brief review of the facts indicates that a Commission 
appointed by the Grand Master, at the request of the Lodge, 
found Bro. Gordon G. Hooper ^ilty of unmasonic conduct 
under Rule 1 (s) in that he was the cause of the dissolution 
of the marriage between Gladys Hooper and himself 
solemnized in 1936 and dissolved by a judgment of the 
Supreme Court of Ontario, 1955, in an action in which the 
accused was one of the defendants. 

A year ago, Bro. Gordon G. Hooper appeared before 
this Committee on notice to show cause why he should not 
lie expelled. He made further representations and explan- 
ations of his conduct and gave reasons for his actions; 
professing a strong desire to remain a member of the Craft. 
Your Committee gave careful consideration to the represent- 
ations made by Bro. Hooper and, at that time, recommended 
that, pending further investigations, no action be taken until 
this Communica/tion of Grand Lodge, which recommendation 
was approved by Grand Lodge and the suspension of Bro. 
Gordon G. Hooper was continued. 

Since our meeting in July, 1958, further investigations 
have been made in connection with the proceedings in the 
Supreme Court of Ontario. There is on file in the examin- 
ation for discovery conducted prior to the trial of the action 
an admission of guilt by Bro. Hooper. 

In view of the admission made by Bro. Gordon G. 
Hooper, your Committee considers that he has not shovvTi 
sufficient reasons for the consideration and leniency he has 
requested and therefore recommends that he be expelled. 

3. FIDELITY LODGE, No. 575, versus BRO. GEORGE 
ERASER SKINNER. 

Bro. Skinner, a member of Fidelity Lodge, No. 575, was 
found guilty of unmasonic conduct at a trial held in Lodge 
in November, 1956, and a sentence of indefinite suspension 
was imposed upon him. 

He had previously admitted being guilty of obtaining 
a substantial sum of money by deceit, falsehood and fraud- 
ulent means and, after trial, was placed on probation by on© 
of Her Majesty's Justices in and for the County of York for 
a period of two years from July, 1956. 

When the case came before this Committee in July, 1957, 
no action was taken in order to give the accused an op- 
portunity to make restitution. In July, 1958, further eon- 
sideration was given and the Committee was advised that 
Bro. Skinner has been able to make only very slight 
restitution. Your Committee at that time felt that, under 
the circumstances, there was no alternative but to recom- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1959 199 

mend that Bro. Skinner be notified to appear at this Com- 
munication of Grand Lodge to show cause why he should 
not be expelled. He has been so notified but has failed to 
appear. 

This Committee now recommends that Bro. George 
Fraser Skinner be expelled. 

4. PEMBROKE LODGE, No. 128, versus BRO. JAMES 
WRIGHT. 

The pertinent facts of this case are set out in the 
Report of this Committee approved by Grand Lodge in July, 
1958, (page 180 of the Proceedings for 1958). 

Following the recommendation made in that Report, a 
second Commission was appointed by the Grand Master to 
investigate the allegations against Bro. Wright, to consider 
his status in Pembroke Lodge, No. 128, and to hold a new 
trial, if necessary. The second Commission, after careful 
review of the proceedings, the correspondence with the Lodge 
and the Report of the first Commission came to the con- 
clusion that the original letter complaining of the conduct of 
Bro. Wnght and the ex-idence given and received at the 
hearing by the Commission first appointed, did not disclose 
or adequately prove any Masonic offence against Bro. 
Wright. Tlie second Commission, therefore, recommended 
that the charge, if any, against Bro. Wright should be 
dismissed. 

Your Committee has again reviewed the record, the 
proceedings, the correspondence and the reports of both 
Commissions and has reached the decision that the Report 
of the Second Commission, dated June 1st, 1959, should be 
approved and that the charge against Bro. James Wright, if 
any, should be dismissed. This recommendation is made 
without prejudice to the right of the brother who made the 
allegation against Brother Wright in the first instance or 
anyone else to file a proper charge in proper form disclosing' 
a Masonic offence. 

5. PRINCE EDWARD LODGE, No. 18, versus BRO. 
CLARENCE A. JONES. 

The facts of this case are set out in the Report of this 
Committee made to and approved by this Grand Lodge in 
July, 1958. 

A brief re^^ew of the previous Report discloses that at 
the Fall Assizes of the Supreme Court of Ontario held at 
the Court House in the Towti of Picton in the County of 
Ontario in October, 1957, Bro. Clarence A. Jones, a member 
of Prince Edward Lodge, No. 18, was, on his ov\'n admission. 



200 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

found guilty of manslaug-hter and sentenced by the presidinig 
Judge to imprisonment for a term of several years. 

Subsequently, a charge of unmasonic conduct was laid 
in and accepted by Prince Edward Lodge, No. 18, and the 
trial was held in that Lodge on March 27th, 1958. The 
decision of the Lodge, after the trial, was that Bro. Jones 
was guilty of unmasonic conduct and that he should be 
suspended for a period of three years. 

A year ago, this Committee, after careful consideration 
of the • proceedings and of certain representations made on 
behalf of Bro. Jones, concurred in the finding of guilt but 
did not consider that the sentence imposed was adequate. 
Your Committee, therefore, recommended that Bro. Clarence 
A. Jones be notified to appear at this Communication of 
Grand Lodge to show cause whey he should not be expelled 
and that in the meantime his suspension be continued. 

Under the circumstances it is impossible for Bro. Jones 
to appear before this Committee at this time. He has 
however, been given an opportunity to present any represent- 
ations and has forwarded a written request for leniency. In 
addition, Bro. Leonard O. Jones, a brother of the accused 
and a member of the same Lodge, has appeared before this 
Committee and has presented a full report on the actions 
of his brother, the attitude of the Lodge and on the present 
condition of Bro. Jones, with a reque.^t for sympathetic con- 
sideration. Having regard to all the circumstances your 
Committee recommends that the sentence of three years 
suspension imposed by the Lodge be altered to indefinite 
suspension. 

6. REHOBOAM LODGE, No. 65, versus BRO. ARCHIE 
McCOLL. 

This was a matter which involved neither a charge in 
the Lodge nor a trial by the Lodge or by a Commission 
appointed by the Grand Master but arose out of complaints 
in the nature of charges made against Bro. Archie McColl, 
a member of Rehoboam Lodge, No. 65, and referred to this 
Committee for consideration. 

These complaints wei-e contained in letters mailed to 
the Grand Secretary's office. There was some question 
regarding the soundness of the complaints and the Lodge 
did not see fit, after making special investigations, to lay- 
any charge or take any action in connection with the 
allegations. The correspondence was referred to the Grand 
Master and a Commission was appointed by him under Sec. 
54 (a) to investigate the complaints and report in du« 
•course. 



TORONTO. 01>JTABI0, 1959 20t 

For numerous valid reasons and due to unavoidable 
circumstances the investig-ations of the Commission were 
delayed. In due course, the report of the Commission was 
received and considered. Your Committee now recommends 
that no further action be taken. 

7. MANITOBA LODGE, No. 236, versus BRO. GORDON 
AUSTIN WIGGINS. 

Bro. Gordon Austin Wiggins pleaded guilty and was 
convicted and sentenced in the Ma^strate's Court at the 
To^vn of Bradford in the County of Simcoe on December 
10th, 1957, of the following charges under Section 289 of 
the Criminal Code of Canada: 

Armed robbery, six charg-es of possession of stolen 
goods, one charge of breaking, entering and theft, four 
charg-es of having unregistered firearms. 

He was sentenced at that time to one year definite 
and six months indefinite, in the Refonnatory on the charge 
of armed robbery with other minor sentences running con- 
current to these. 

The Attoi-ney-General did not consider the punishment 
adequate and appealed the sentences with the result that 
the Court of Appeal for Ontario, by order dated March 10th, 
1958, allowed the appeal, varied and inci'eased the sentences 
as follows: 

Seven years on the anned robbery charge. 

Nine months- concurrent on each of the six charges 
of possession of stolen goods, but to run consecutive to 
the amied robbery charge: 

One year for breaking, entering and theft charge, con- 
secutive : and 

Three months concurrent on each of the four charges 
of having in his possession unregistered firearms and 
concurrent to all above sentences. 

At the meeting of the Lodge held on May 11th, 1958, 
the Junior Warden gave notice that, at the next meeting' 
of the Lodge, he would lay a charge of unmasonic conduct 
against Bro. Wiggins. A copy of the charge was sent to 
Bro. Wiggins about June 1st, 1958. The notice of motion 
i-eferring to the charge was published in the summons for 
the meeting of the Lodge to be held on June 10th, 1958. 
At that time a charge of unmasonic conduct was presented 
in open Lodge by the Junior Warden under Rule 1 (g) (h) 
and (p) alleging that Bro. Wiggins was guilty of the crimes 
under the Criminal Code as mentioned above. 



202 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

After discussion it was moved, seconded and carried that 
Bro. Wiggins be susipended. 

While no trial has been held in the Lodge it is evident 
that Bro. Wiggins has been guilty of unmasonic conduct. 

FoMoAving the practice adopted by this Committee with 
the approval of Grand Lodge, in certain cases previously 
decided where all the requirements of the Constitution and the 
Rules of Procedure have not been observed but where guilt has 
b-een. established beyond question, either by the admission 
■of the accused or by conviction in a court of competent 
jurisdiction, this Committee recommends that the Grand 
Master and Grand Lodge by virtue of the inherent power and 
jurisdiction vested in them do confirm the suspension imposed 
by the Lodore on Bro. Wiggins, and further recommends that 
ihe be notified to appear at the next Annual Communication 
of this Grand Lodge to show cause why he should not be 
expelled and that in the meantime his suspension be continued. 

8 SIMCOE LODGE, No. 644, versus BRO. IVAN B. 
GROSE. 

Bro. Ivan B. Grose, a member of Simcoe Lodge, No. 644 
was, on his own admission, found guilty of araied robbery 
in the Magistrate's Court in the City of Hamilton in that he 
did, on December 20th, 1957, being armed with an offensive 
Aveapon, unlawfully rob one. Mary Ellen Southward, contrary 
to the pix)visions of Sec. 288 s.s. (d) of the Criminal Code 
of Canada. 

Bro. Grose pleaded guilty to this charge and was 
sentenced to imprisonment in the Ontario Reformatory for 
fifteen months definite and fifteen months indefinite. 

Having regard to the serious nature of the offence the 
Attorney-General did not consider this sentence sufficient 
and filed an appeal, with the result that the sentence was 
increased by the Court of Appeal for Ontario on March 28th, 
1959, to three years in Kingston Penitentiary. 

Subsequently a charge was filed in the Lodge, of un- 
masonic conduct under Section 1 (p) specifying the charge 
and conviction above mentioned. 

At a regU'lar meeting of the Lod^-e held on May 8th, 
1958, the charge was read and accepted and a request was 
made that a Commission be appointed by the Grand Master. 
A certified copy of the conviction was filed. 

While there has been no trial by a Commission appointed 
by the Grand Master, as requested in the resolution of the 
Lodge, it is clear that Bro. Grose, on his own admission, has 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 203 

been giiilty of unmasonic conduct. Following the practice 
adopted by this Committee with the approval of Grand Lodge, 
in certain cases previously decided, where all the require- 
ments of the Constitution and the Rules of Procedure have 
not been observed but where guilt has been established 
beyond question, either by the admission of the accused or 
bv conAiction in a Court of competent jurisdiction, this 
Committee recommends, that the Grand Master and Grand 
Lodge, by virtue of the inherent power and jurisdiction 
vested in them, do suspend Bro. Ivan B. Grose forthwith 
and further recommends that he be notified to appear at 
the next Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge to 
show cause why he should not be expelled, and that in the 
meantime the suspension be continued. 

9. CORONATION LODGE, No. 466, versus BRO. ALLAN 
RITCHIE. 

Bro. Allan Ritchie, a member of Coronation Lodge, No. 
466, ELmvale, was accused in Magistrate'sCourt in the City 
of OAven Sound of the theft on June 6th, 1957, of a quantity 
of mink kits to the value of approximately $8,000.00. He 
pleaded guilty, was con\acted and sentenced later to a term 
in jail of five months dating from July 5th, 1957. 

There was some delay in the Lodge about taking any 
proceedings against Bro. Ritchie and considerable correspond- 
ence took place between the Lodge and the Grand Secretar>^'s 
Office, which accounts, in some measure, for the delay in 
the disposition of the case by the Lodge. 

Finally, however, at a meeting of the Lodge held on 
December 18th, 1958. a charge of unmasonic conduct was 
presented in the Lodge specifying the above mentioned 
criminal offence and conviction. This charge was accepted 
by the Lodge and the Worshipful Master of the Lodge 
requested that the trial should be conducted by a Com- 
mission to be appointed by the Grand Master. 

While no trial has been held by a Commission appointed 
by the Grand Master it is eAident that Bro. Ritchie, on his 
own admission, has been guilty of unmasonic conduct. 
Following the practice adopted by this Committee, with the 
■approval of Grand Lodge, in certain cases pfre\'iovisly 
decided v,-here all the requirements of the Constitution and 
the Rules of Procedure have not been obsei'^'ed but where 
guilt has been established beyond question, either by the 
admission of the accused or by conviction in a Court of 
competent jurisdiction, this Committee recommends that the 
Grand Master and Grand Lodge by virtue of the inherent 
power and jurisdiction vested in them do suspend Bix). 
Ritchie foi-thwith and further recommends that he be notified 
to appear at the next Annual Communication of this Grand 



204 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Lodge to show cause why he should not be expelled and 
that in the meantime the suspension be continued. 

Respectfully and fratemiaily submitted, 

J. R. RUMBALL, 

ChairmaTi. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON BENEVOLENCE 

This report was presented by M.W. B[ro. J. A. 
Heam for R.W. Bro. G. F. Clark, Chairman, and on 
motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. Hearn, it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge. A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

"Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is with pleasure that I submit, on behalf of the Com- 
mittee on Benevolence, the report for the year ended May 
31st, 1959. 

As you will recollect at the last Annual Communication 
we recommended that the sum of $100,000.00 be set aside for 
Eenevolence and from the following report it will be noted 
that we did not spend the entire amount. 

The Financial Report is as follows: 

■Grants approved and authorized at the last 
Annual Communication of Grand Lodge af- 
fecting 315 applications _... $ 74,380.00 

Cancellations, refunds and deductions during the 
year ...._ ....„ ....._ 4,382.25 

$ 69,997.75 

Interim grants during the year - $ 7,740.00 

$ 77,737.75 
Expended from Emergency Fund ~»- 364.75 

$ 78,102.50 

Our Committee held its regular meeting in Toronto on 
June 12th and 13th with most of the members present, and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 205 

during that meeting we dealt with 291 applications, which is 
a reduction from the previous year, there being 24 new 
applications. 

We are very pleased to report that, due to the new 
hospital plan for Ontario, many grants were not required 
and others were substantially reduced. This hospital plan 
has filled a long needed assistance to defray hospital bills. 
Interim grants are slightly higher than the previous year 
but were it not for one particular case which required a 
very substantial amount of relief we would othenvise have 
been able to show a reduction in this particular item. 

In view of present circumstances we would recom- 
mend that the sum of $85,000.00 be appropriated for Benev- 
olence for the year 1959-1960. 

Regarding applications, we still are experiencing some 
difficulty with the constituent Lodges because they do not 
send in their applications in sufficient time for proper 
investigation. Many of these applications were received 
after the 1st of June and certainly our Supervisor was not 
able to make contacts; these will have to be dealt with in 
July at Grand Lodge. We believe that if a change were 
made in the Constitution requiring that applications be sent 
in by the 1st of May it would facilitate matters and would 
allow more time for investigation. 

One of the factors in the reduction in applications has 
teen the provision of up-to-date accommodations for senior 
citizens in the various municipalities, which has been a great 
source of comfort to older folks and has made them happier 
"because they are nearer their former home and friends. 

It has been mv pleasure during the year to make 
several calls with R.W. Bro. George McQueen, our Supervisor 
of Benevolence, and I appreciate the opportunities to 
learn from our brethren and families just what our benev- 
olent grants have meant to them. 

May I bring to the attention of the Lodges the suggestion 
made from time to time regarding visits to those members 
who cannot attend Lodge. From the reports received many 
of these brethren have not been contacted by Lodges for at 
least one year, and I am sure that our lodge members would 
j^ceive a great deal of satisfaction from their calls on their 
fellow members. 

At our meeting our Super^'isor of Benevolence made 
his yearly report, and we were very pleased to see that he 
has been able to make calls on most of the recipients^ of 
Grand Lodge grants. May we extend to him our appreciat- 
ion for a job well done and let us hope that he %\ill continue 
for many years in this work for Grand Lodge. 



206 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Because of the increase in the cost of living may I once 
again suggest to the various Lodges that their grants might 
be increased to help our older folks with their difficulties. 
This, we are sure, would be much appreciated. 

The assistance which we receive from the Grand Secre- 
tary, 11. Wor. Bro. E. G, Dixon, and his staff, has been of 
great value to the Committee and I would like to express 
appreciation to him for his advice and co-operation. 

To the members of the Committee may I express thanks 
for the assistance which they have given to our Supervisor 
in making calls and reporting on the needs of those located 
in the various districts; also to the Boards of Relief for their 
assistance which has been of great value to the Craft. It 
is my hope that many more of the larger centres will take 
this method of assisting the Supervisor of Benevolence. 

For many years we have been aided in benevolence 
matters by other jurisdictions than our own, particularly in 
the United States, Great Britain and our Canadian Grand 
Lodges. May I record our appreciation for what has been 
done to take care of those located outside of the Province 
of Ontario. 

During the year we have received a number of small 
contributions towards the benevolent work of Grand Lodge. 
These total $198.83 and have been much appreciated. 

The Committee recommends the continuance of our 
membership in the United States and Canada Relief As- 
sociation, as we feel that this membership is most helpful. 

Once again may I express my appreciation for the 
pri^dlege of serving as Chairman of the Committee of 
Benevolence for Grand Lodge and I trust that our work 
has been carried out to the satisfaction of our members. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

GEORGE F. CLARK, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON 
NEW GRAND LODGE OFFICES 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Heai'n, Chairman, and on his motion, seconded by 
the Deputy Grand Master, it was received and 
adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F, & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

This is intended as a continuing or progress report to 
that presented one year ago. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 207 

A year ag-o we reported the purchase of property at 
363 Kin^ Street West, Hamilton, Ontario, and the engage- 
ment of V.W. Bro. Geo. T. Evans as architect, who was 
insti'ucted to prepare plans and specifications for the new 
building. 

At a meeting of the Building Committee on January 
19th, 1959, we approved the architect's plans and directed 
him to proceed with detailed drawings and to call for public 
tenders. 

From the best of information available at that time, it 
was estimated that the approximate cost would be about 
$350,000.00. When the final plans were approved and 
tenders received, it was found that the cost would exceed 
our estimate by about $75,000.00 after certain modifications. 
Tenders had been invited from prominent contractors which 
■were considered by the Committee on July 3rd, 1959. 

It should be indicated here that the building planned 
to house Grand Lodge Offices, is not an office building in 
a general sense. It is intended, rather, as a Memorial 
Building. It will be separate and distinct from the average 
mill-inin of office buildings. It will be a headquarters for 
this Grand Lodge that you will be extremely proud of, and 
one in keeping with the prestige of the Craft. 

Demolition of the old house on the property is proceed- 
ing. Contracts have been signed for the new building which 
will begin immediately. 

This year, on July 16th, the members of Masonic 
Holdings elected the following Directors: 

J. N. Allan, R. C. Berkinshaw, Q.C., E. G. Dixon, Q.C., 
W. J. Dunlop, Geo. T. Evans, W. H. Gibson, Joseph A. Heam, 
H. L. Martyn, T. H. Simpson. 

To these are added, by virtue of their Office, the Grand 
Master, and the Deputy Grand Master. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Directors, the following 
were elected: 

President — Joseph A. Heam; Vice-President — R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Q.C.; Vice-President — H. L. Martyn; Secretary- 
Treasurer— E. G. Dixon, Q.C. 

The Building Committee remains as heretofore. 
Chairman, R. C. Berkinshaw, Q.C, Walter H. Gibson, Ewart 
G. Dixon, Q.C, and ex-officio, Joseph A. Heam, President, 
Board of Directors, the Grand IMaster and the Deputy Grand 
Master. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

JOSEPH A. HEARN, 

Chairman.

ing the Grand Treasurer to pur-chase debentures of

SPECIAL REPORT ON REDESIGNATION OF 
THE SIX TORONTO DISTRICTS 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Meeting of the six D.D.G.M's. of the Toix)nto area with 
the D.G.M. was held ait the Royal York, Toronto, on Saturday!' 
January 31st, 1959, commencing with luncheon at 12.30 p.m.

210 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to advise the regalia manufacturers so that the new D.D.G.M. 
regalia would reflect the new District designations. 

After a general discussion of Masonic affairs in the 
Toronto area all of which seemed to indicate a healthy and 
happy condition, the meeting adjourned at 3.30 p.m. after 
receiving the thanks of the D.G.M. to all for their presence

mendations contained themn were received and 
adopted. 



REPORT OF BLOOD DONORS' COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. F. D. 
Shannon, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Shannon, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Masonic Blood Donors' Committee begs leave to 
present this its Second Report, to the One Hundred and 
Fourth Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. 

Again, we are happy to report, with satisfaction, the 
success of the activities of this Committee. From all parts 
of the Jurisdiction, Masons are gi\'ing of their life blood to 
help those in noed. Blood is used much more frequently 
at the present time, in the care of injured, as well as in 
Medicine and Surgeiy, than was the case a fev.' years ago. 
Advancement in techniaues of grouping and administration 
have made the giving of blood a safe and very useful method 
of treatment in the saving of life and in restoring health. 

The Canadian Red Cross is extending its Tranfusion 
Service over the whole province, and now seiwes most of the 
larger centres. This Service is merely providing the channel 
by which blood is taken from the donor and carried to the 
recipient. The Red Cross derives no monetary benefit from 
your donation, making no charge to the recipient. Your 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1959 2U 

blood is supplied free to anyone who needs it, the only 
expense being a hospital service charge. Our purpose, then, 
is to keep the Red Cross Bank full, so that you or I, or 
anyone who might, at anytime, be in need, may be supplied 
with as little or as much blood as might be required. 

During the past year we have received reports from 81 
Lodges, which comprise a membership of 18,000 Masons. Of 
these about 3,000 are registered as Donors, or one out of 
every six members. We do, of course, fully appreciate the 
fact that this figure includes some who are over the age 
limit, in ill health, or for occupational reasons are prevented 
from giving blood. Tweed Lodge, which has a total mem- 
bership of 150, lists 65 donor^, and Bro. Marsh is to be 
commended on his plans to transport them 25 miles to 
Belleville to enable them to give their blood. 

Of the other 527 Lodges, comprising 117,000 Masons, 
we have no information. The Committee Chairmen just 
failed to report. This condition seems to prevail particular- 
ly in the larger centres. From the 6 Toronto Districts 
which contain 121 Lodges, only 4 reported any active donors. 
Only one Lodge in each of the Ottawa and Peterborough 
Districts have donors. There are no Masonic Donors in 
Ontario, Niagara A, Samia or Prince Edward Districts. 
Bro. Plummer of Ashlar Lodge, Ottawa, suggests that better 
results might be obtained by having some supervision at the 
district level. This should be considered by next years 
committee. If all Lodges had reported proportionately, we 
would have had 21,000 Masonic Donors in this Grand 
Jurisdiction. 

Finally, we wish to express our thanks and gratitude 
to the Grand Secretary, and his staff, for their help and 
support during the year. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

FRANK SHANNON, 

Chairman.

212 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANKUAL, COMMUKICATION 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Printing and Supplies, composed of 
R.W. Bros. K. N. McDonald, K. Freeman, B. C. Martin, J. 
C. Walden, W. H. Carr and the Chairman, begs leave to 
present the report of the expenditures for printing and 
supplies for the year ended May 31st, 1959, as follows: 

Constitutions for re-sale $ 3,036.17 

Booklets, Works, Installation Ceremonies, for 

re-sale ^ 322.41 

Proceedings and Postage 4,699.89 

Grand Lodge Bulletins (3 issues and postage) .... 5,609.39 
Printed foiTns, circulars, records, office stationery 

and supplies 2,130.75 

Syllabus for Masonic Education (3) 84.40 

Fraternal Reviews (2,900) 1,361.08 

Preliminary Reports (3,300) 780.45 

$ 18,024.54 

Included in the above is the cost of the Reviews and 
Preliminary Reports amounting to $2,141.53. Without this 
addition, the amount expended is down $2,642.33 from last 
year, as supplies of the Work and Installation Ceremonies 
were printed in 1958 and no more were required this year. 

We again record our appreciation to the Chairmen of 
the various Committees for their co-operation in getting 
their reports in promptly. This is a great help. 

In closing, may we say a very sincere thank you to our 
most efficient and courteous Grand Secretary for his never- 
ending kindness and consideration at all times. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

H. S. JOHNSTON, 

Chairman.

GRAND CHAPLAIN'S REPORT 

This Teport was presented by R.W. Bro. R. S. 
Skinner, Grand Chaplain, and on motion of the 
Deputy Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. 
Skinner, it was i^eceived and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M., of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

My term of office has been rather a busy one. but 
also a very pleasant one. It has been a great experience 
indeed, one that I shall not forget. 1 consider it a great 
privilege and honour to have been able to serv-e the Craft 
as Grand Chaplain and wish to thank Grand Lodge for the 



214 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

honour bestowed upon me, I hope, that I have, at least 
to some degree, upheld the ideals and traditions of this high 
office, by carrying out the wishes of Grand Lodge. I 
realize, only too well, that there are many things that might 
have been done, and places visited, but time and circum- 
stances do not permit an active clergyman to do all that he 
would like to do. 

It has been the wish of Grand Lodge to bring about a 
deeper spirit of fellowship and understanding between the 
Craft and the Church. This I have tried to do during my 
term of office, and I believe with some success. Last year 
only twenty-five districts had ordained men as District 
Chaplains. This year only three districts failed to appoint 
ordained men as District Chaplains. Next year, I hope, 
will see every district with an ordained man as District 
Chaplain. 

The success of the above increase in ordained men as 
District Chaplains does not rest entirely with me. The 
greater part of this success must go to the D.D.G.M's. of the 
districts. Some D.D.G.M's. appointed laymen. I wrote to 
them and asked them to try and appoint a clergyman and 
in response all but three did so. I would like to thank 
the D.D.G.M's. for the wonderful co-operation I received 
from them. They were a great help to me in carrying out 
my duties. I have received reports from many and find that 
nearly all, if not all, have held District Divine Services. I 
am sure that Grand Lodge will be pleased to hear this, as 
this is one of the ways we can bring the Church and the 
Craft closer together. 

Now a word of thanks to the Chaplains. First, my 
sincere thanks to V. Wor. Bro. W. R. Alps, Assistant Grand 
Chaplain, for taking over when I was unable to be present; 
secondly, to the District Chaplains for their untiring efforts 
in supporting their D.D.G.M. on his official ^^sits and at 
other times and in planning the Divine Service. I have 
attended a good number of these Services and they were 
a credit to the Craft. I feel quite sure that each of them 
has carried out the wishes of Grand Lodge. 

You will notice that I have not given much in the way 
of a detailed statement as to my visits, etc. May it 
suffice to say that I have given as much time as I could, 
maybe more than I should, sometimes at a sacrifce to my 
church people, and I do want to thank them for their kindly 
understanding and tolerance. On all my visits, I tried 
to impress upon the minds of the brethren the importance of 
the deeper things of life, by which alone we can hope to 
ascend to that Grand Lodge Above, where time shall be no 
more. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1959 215 

Finally, I should like to express my thanks to the Grand 
Secretary for his assistance. I assure him it was deeply 
appreciated. 

To my successor, I wish him the same joy that has 
been mine during this past year. If at anytime I can be 
of any assistance to him, I hope he will feel free to call 
upon me. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

R. S. SKINNER. 

Grand Chaplain.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir, — 

Your Committee on Fraternal Correspondence for 
the Masonic Year 1958-1959, composed of M.W. Bro. 

F. A. Copus, M.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop. M.W. Bro. C. S. 
Hamilton, R.W. Bro. R. W^. Treleaven, R.W. Bro. E. 

G. I^ixon and M.W. Bro. N. C. Hart, Chairman, begs 
to submit its report for your consideration. 

FOREWORD 

Records from some 81 Grand Jurisdictions have 
been received, most of them the Proceedings of those 
Grand Lodges. Occasionally no reports of Annual 
Communications were received and official periodicals 
were used for Reviews. 

The usual procedure of giving the number and date 
of the Annual Communication, the name of the Grand 
blaster, the number of Lodges, the membership and the 
gain or loss during the ^Masonic Year, has been followed. 
It is interesting to note that there has been a considerable 
increase in total membership throughout the ^Masonic 
World, although a few Grand Jurisdictions show slight 
decreases. A number of Grand Lodges report the form- 
ation of new constituent Lodges, but the amalgamation 
of two Lodges was recorded by onl}' one. On the whole 
the Fraternity appears to be in a flourishing condition. 
Growth is mentioned in New South Wales, New Jersey, 
New iMexico, Victoria and elsewhere, but decreases are 
recorded for the District of Columbia. 

A reading of the Proceedings reveals considerable 
expenditures for the building and repairing of Masonic 
Temples. It is also gratifying to note that benevolent 
activities are well supported. \'arious Grand Jurisdic- 
tions of the British Commonwealth of Nations show con- 



siderable levies and allocation of funds for Masonic 
Homes and other charitable ventures. The care of 
indigent ]^Iasons and their relatives may well be con- 
sidered one of the main objectives of the Craft, and it is 
encouraging to note that it is not over-looked. 

Official copies of the Proceedings of the various 
Grand Lodges are on file in the Grand Secretary's office. 
When extra copies are available they are placed in the 
Grand Lodge Library and may be obtained from the 
Librarian, R.W. Bro, A. E.MacGregor, Brethren who 
wish mure details, than the Reviews offer, should consult 
these officials for additional information. 

Incidentally, one of the out-standing events of the 
year was the dedication of the new Grand Lodge Temple 
in San Francisco, California. On this occasion the ad- 
dress of the Grand ^Master of the United Grand Lodge of 
England, the Right Honorable, The Earl of Scarbrough, 
was a magnificent review of Masonic History. It is 
published in the Proceedings of the last Quarterly 
Communication of the Mother Grand Lodge in 1958. 

In the treatment of various (irand Lodges an attempt 
has been made to emphasize the importance of Masonry 
to the officers and members. This has been done by 
referring to the activities of various Grand Lodge Com- 
mittees, and by recording excerpts from Addresses of the 
Grand blasters. Grand Orators and special speakers. 
The topics are reported generously in the Reviews, and 
in many instances the Addresses appear verbatim in the 
Proceedings of the Grand Lodges under consideration. 

A few of the topics associated very directly with 
Masonry are recorded herein. In Kentucky reference 
was made to "Tasks for ^Masonry" ; in Manitoba the 
Grand Master spoke on "Masonry, the Key" ; in Missis- 
sippi, the Grand Master, John T. ^^'ilbanks, used the 
topic, "Masonry and Americanism" ; in r^Iassachusetts, 
Bro. E. Robert Chable excelled in the treatment of "What 
is the Philosophy of Freemasonry ?" : in New Brunswick, 
M.W. Bro. (Rev.) Donald A. Somerville emphasized the 
"Permanence of ^lasonry"' ; in Colorado the Grand 
rjrator. Bro. Humber Rees, asks, "What Makes You a 
Mason?"; and in South Dakota, ^I.W. Bro. Robt. A. 



'J'atc, (irand Secretary of Saskatchewan, used the topic, 
"Freemasonry and I'reedom". These and many other 
subjects, which mig-ht be mentioned, seem to emphasize 
the im])!)rtance and high regard attributed to the Craft. 

Some decisions and transactions reported in the 
Proceechngs would meet with the approval of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada. In Montana the Crand Master ruled 
that no dis])ensations could be issued for Masonic funct- 
ions on Sunday — a ruling which would receive almost 
ioo% support in Ontario. Indiana deserves a word of 
commendation for stressing the need for increased fees 
and dues. It has been said occasionally in Canada that 
our Masonry is "too cheap", and costs of living are 
constantly increasing. Kcntuck\- condemned "Games of 
Chance'" associated with Masonic activities. 

It is interesting to note that there is considerable 
activity in ^lasonic Instruction and Education, and 
usually most pronounced in Grand Jurisdictions which 
have good ^lasonic libraries. Iowa has long been 
prominent in this respect, but Xew York and Pennsylvania 
hive excellent facilities. 

One might continue at length to comment on the 
various phases of Masonic endeavour, but probably 
enough has been included in this Foreword to stinuilatc 
some interest in reading the Reviews. They should 
be of some value in Masonic Education. 

Respectfully submitted, 

XELSOX C. HART, P.G.M., 

Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALABAMA— 1958 

138th Annual Communication — November 18-19. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Eely Elbert Jackson. 

Lodges, 436. Membership, 75,431. Cain, 519. 

The Annual Communication was held in Mont- 
gomery, Alabama, and actually commenced on the evening 
of November 17th when guests were entertained at the 
Whitley Hotel. Prior to the opening of Grand Lodge 
on November i8th, the Grand Master introduced officers 
and members of the Order of the Eastern Star. Addresses 
were given by the Worthy Grand Matron and by the 
Worthy Grand Patron. 

The Grand Master welcomed the distinguished 
guests and quoted from "The Builders" by Dr. J. Fort 
Newton, on "When is a Man a Mason?" During the 
year he constituted one Lodge and dedicated two, laid 
three corner-stones, and issued many dispensations for 
a variety of purposes. The Grand Master must approve 
mortgage of properties, change of meeting place tempor- 
arily, sale of property, holding of elections and several 
other duties. 

During the year some 114 fifty-year buttons were 
presented. Ten pages of the Proceedings are filled with 
the list of the Grand Master's visits, indicating a very 
busy year. 

The Grand Orator, R.W. Bro. Judge T. Simpson, 
delivered a masterly address on "The Constitution and 
our Liberties". He claimed the keystone of Masonry to 
be liberty-freedom, and deplored the restriction of liberties 
by the Federal Government. In conclusion he urged 
Masons to "labour" to prevent loss of individual freedom. 

Bro. R. G. Waldrop, Grand Representative of the 
Grand Lodge of Canada was in attendance. 



FRATERN.AX CORRESPONDENCE 5 

The Grand Treasurer reported an increase of over 
$66,112.00 in Cash and Bonds during the year. 
The Alabama Masonic Home showed a surplus of 
$1,416,691.71. There were 113 persons occupying the 
Home. 

Bro. Walter M. Wliitinger reported for the Com- 
mittee of Foreign Correspondence, his comments occup- 
ing some three pages. \o changes during the year had 
altered relationships of Alabama with other Grand 
Jurisdictions. The Committee deplored the prevalence 
of fanaticism and mtolerance in several parts of the world. 

Robert R. Berryman was elected and installed as 
Grand Master for the ensuing year. A brief biography 
of the new Grand Master serves as the foreword for the 
Proceedinsfs. 



ALBERTA— 1958 

53rd Annual Communication — June 11-12, 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Samuel G. Bannan. 

Lodges, 166. ]\Iembership, 18,356. Gain, 307. 

The Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of 
Alberta, held in Edmonton, was quite well attended. The 
Grand Represntative of Canada in Ontario, M.W. Bro. 
F. P. Galbraith of Red Deer, was present. 

The Grand Master visited all the districts except 
one, attended some eight Lodges which celebrated fifty 
anniversaries, and conducted two institutions and two con- 
secrations, and laid one cornerstone. He was pleased 
with the Washington and Banff Conferences and the 
Communications of neighboring Grand Lodges. 

The Grand Master's opinion of the increase in 
membership is indicated by this quotation. 

"The Lodge notices which reach me certainly in- 
dicate a growing interest in the Craft albeit that interest 



6 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

is not reflected in the record of attendance in the larger 
lodges. But that coniplaint is not ne-w; it prevades 
all our a)innal journals. 

"In some Lodges, a monotonous stream of five 
candidates, the maximum permitted, is disclosed. I use 
the adjective advisedly because I question the icisdom of 
adding to an already over-loaded roster ivliere the }nem- 
bers surely cannot have the opportunity of becoming 
acquainted, much less having a reasonable chance of ad- 
vancement, and particularly zvhere attendance is at a 
verv lozv ebb, notn'ithstanding the tearful entreaties of 
the Master that the situation be improved." 

M.W. Bro. S. Harris resigned the editorship of the 
Grand Lodge Bulletin and was succeeded by ]M.\V. Bro. 
Carl Heckbert. 

R.W. Bro. E. H. Rivers, the Grand Secretary, 
issues very complete statistics on membership, arranges 
the memorial pages and the various reports quite at- 
tractively. The proceedings are printed in excellent 
readable type on unusually good paper. He reports 
the presentation of some 34 fifty-year jewels and two 
sixty-year bars. Public Liability Insurance has been 
renewed for three years. 

The Benevolent Fund Capital Account amounts to 
$302,037.48 and the Relief Fund Surplus to $56,324.28. 
The receipts of Grand Lodge in the General Fund were 
$5''^>,82i.90, and after all disbursements there was a 
balance of $7,191.24. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations recommended 
recognition of the Grand Lodge of Israel, but deferred 
action on Japan, Occidental de Colombia, Egypt and 
Denmark. Some 50 pages are devoted to Reviews. 

The address at the evening' banquet was given bv 
Bro. Mr. Justice Marshall M. Porter. In dealing with 
iNIasonry he said many things worth quoting.

the occasion, just for a feiv minutes about Masonry. In

today. It has never had such opportunities to use the 
tools on which it is founded to meet that challenge. A

ARGENTINA— 1958 

lootli Annual Assembly — June 24, 1957. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Dr. Agustin J. Alvarez. 

The only additional information about the Grand 
"Lodg-e of Argentina, since the report in last year's pro- 
ceedings, is in a copy of the publication "Simbolo" 
covering October to December, 1957. This magazine is 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

issued three times annually and this copy completes the 
year 1957. 

One section of each issue is devoted to the Lodges 
of Argentina and another to outside Grand Jurisdictions. 
Alberta and Prince Edward Island are the only Canadian 
jurisdictions that are mentioned. 

At the looth Assembly the Grand Secretary reported 
an increase of 803 members. One article in "Simbolo", 
"En La Exposicion Del 'Triangulo de las Virtudes 
Masonicas' " apparently discusses the fundamentl 
principles of Freemasonry. 

It has been frequently reported that adherence to a 
belief in a Supreme Being is not universal in Grand 
Jurisdictions in South America, but progress towards 
uniformity was made last year. 



ARIZONA— 1958 

76th Annual Communication — April 28-29. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Gerald I. Craig. 

Lodges, 51 (i U.D.) Membership, 11,448. Gain, 349. 

Six Special and one Emergent Communications were 
held during the year, including two Constitutions, three 
layings of cornerstones, one funeral service and one 
celebration of a 75th Anniversary. 

The Grand Master mentioned several visitations, 
decisions and recommendations. He was pleased with 
Masonry in Arizona as the following quotation indicates. 

"I am happy to report that the general condition of 
the Craft is good. It is true that percentage wise we do 
not have the members that ive should have, but those 
that we do have are good men. I have found the leader- 
ship to be in experienced hands, and though some of our 
Lodges may have suffered by losing vital officers, yet 
their grit and enthusiasm will assure their success." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

The Grand Master visited individually or collectively 
all the Lodges in Arizona. He presented several awards 
for twenty-five and fifty years' service in the Craft. He 
ruled that a member w'ith plural membership has equal 
standing- and privileges in all Lodges in which he holds 
membership, and may withdraw from any, retaining his 
status in the others. 

For purposes of Relief $1,425.14 was collected and 
$935.81 was expended for eleven cases. 

Grand Lodge has been studying a proper Funeral 
Service and submitted a ritual to be used for public 
presentation. The proposed ritual was laid over for 
further study. 

The Grand Lodge approves and supports the Order 
of DeMolay. The recipients of scholarships are report- 
ed to have benefitted greatly from this generosity. 

The Balance Sheet for the year showed $79,078.14 
in the General Fund, and $549,411.28 in various Trust 
Funds. 

In Arizona, as in many other Jurisdictions in the 
United States, an annual Public Schools' week is held. 
The week is proclaimed by the Governor of Arizona and 
every citizen is expected to visit a public school "and 
become personally acquainted with the work and activities 
of our Public School System". A Grand Lodge Com- 
mittee conducts an Essay Contest and all Lodges are 
urged to support the venture by the establishment of a 
permanent "Public Schools Committee." 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence noted 
varying percentages of increases in many Grand Jurisdic- 
tions and losess in a few. The problem of poor attend- 
ance was mentioned and some remedies suggested, such 
as opening the Lodge on time, snappy meetings, carefully 
arranged programmes, and closing on time. 

It was decided to secure permanent quarters for 
the Grand Secretary in the Phoenix Masonic Temple. 

Ronald C. Nicholson was elected and installed as 
the l\Iost Worshipful Grand Master. 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ARKANSAS— 1958 

ii/th Annual Communication — November 18-19. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Garland 'SI. Hug-hes. 

Lodges, 380. Membership, 56,145. Xet Loss, 203. 

The Grand Lodge conducted nine emergent com- 
munications, one for Constituting a Lodge, five for dedi- 
cations, and three for laving cornerstones. Despite the 
loss in membership the Lod'ges had been fairly busy but 
candidates had not been as abundant as in some previous 
years. 

Among the Grand Representatives present, ]\L\V. 
Bro. L. AL Greene answered the roll call for Canada in 
Ontario. Some 320 Lodges were represented by 488 
members. 

The Grand ^Master's address covers some twenty 
pages of the proceedings, and gives considerable detail 
of his year's activities. He was not particularly im- 
pressed with out-door Lodge meetings and considered 
that there Avas some lack of enthusiasm in the member- 
ship. His motto was "Learn as if to live forever, live 
as if to die to-morrow." He paid fitting tribute to 

deceased brethren mentioning especially R.W. Bro. 
Walter H. Estes, Deputy Grand Master. He lists some 
115 visitations he made to functions in Arkansas and that 
the Grand Lodge was represented at five communications 
of other Grand Lodges and at the Conference of Grand 
Masters at Washington, D.C. 

The Grand Master was asked to decide the following 
question. 

"At a stated meeting, if there are seven brothers 
present, they must open from the Entered Apprentice 
degree; if only five, they must open up from the Fellow- 
craft degree; but if only three, they must open in the 
Master's degree, and thev cannot do anything in the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

Entered .Ifprciiticc or fcllozccraft Degrees." Mttst 
these be iiieiiibers of the Lodged 

The ( Irand Master answered in the affirmative. 
However, in ( Jntario no Lod^e can be opened unless 
there are at least seven brethren present. 

The Grand blaster was unfavourable to member- 
ship in the -Masonic Service Association but commended 
the programme of the Southwest Conference on Masonic 
Education. lie was opposed to Dual Membership 
larg-ely l)ccause of the confusion caused to the Grand 
Secretary. 

Eig'hty-tliree fift}-year Imttons were presented 
during- the \ear. 

The Grand Treasurer reported receipts plus bank 
balance at $140,249.58, and total disljursements of 

$93^21 7.95- 

The proceedings close with reports from the Arkansas 
Research Lodge, Roland E. Darrow, W'.M. has an 
article on "The Holy Scripture for the three Degrees" ; 
John L. Durrett, P.]\I. writes on "Secrets of Free- 
masonry" ; E. Eugene Smith, P.G.AI. contributes a power- 
ful treatise on "Freemasonry and the Church"; Francis 
J. Scully, P.G.]\1., discusses the "Anti-Masonic Move- 
ment in Louisiana". Other articles are "The IMeaning 
of the Fellowcraft Degree" and "^Masonry and the 
Great Religions."

12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

on "The Achievement of the Good Life," He referred 
to three prayers in the Bible; — first, Moses' prayer for 
guidance and that "God would show him His Glory;" 
second, the prayer of Job, "Make me to know my trans- 
gressions and my sins" ; and third the prayer of the 
Psalmist, "Teach me to do Thy Will". 

The Grand Master's address is a concise, yet com- 
prehensive account of his year's Masonic activities. He 
made 41 official visits including the Banff Conference 
of the Western and Prairie Grand Lodges of Canada. 
Special paragraphs are devoted to several of these 
Masonic events. Dispensations for the Institutions of 
two new Lodges were granted. 

Praise was given to R.W. Bro. M. A. R. Howard 
and his committee for their work in producing the 
"Masonic Bulletin", "now recognized as being one of the 
outstanding Masonic publications of its kind. . ." 
Victoria has a Lodge of Education and Research and 
Vancouver a Lodge of Instruction, Education and Re- 
search, both of which are doing excellent work. 

During the roll call M.W. Bro. G. C. Derby answer- 
ed for the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province of 
Ontario. 

The Grand Lodge had a Balance and Receipts of 
$83,097.45 which when disbursements were deducted 
left a Balance in the Bank of $34, 570.14. The Bene- 
volent Fund amounts to $730,570.06, The relief paid 
on the orders of the Benevolent Committee was $1 1,51 1. 00. 
The Grand Lodge also has a Veterans' Fund of 
$45,130.27. 

The reports of the 24 District Deputy Grand Masters 
cover some 36 pages. 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence re- 
viewed the proceedings of sixty-five Grand Jurisdictions, 
nine of which showed a loss in membership. The 
report is a general summary occupying slightly over one 
page, and 86 pages devoted to the individual consider- 
ation of Grand Jurisdictions. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

The Grand Lodge adopted the report of the Com- 
mittee recommending the institution of the "Order of 
Meritorious Service" which is to be limited to ten 
brethren. 

R.W. Bro. Kenneth Reid was elected and installed 
as Grand Master for the ensuing year. 



CALIFORNIA— 1958 

109th Annual Communication — Sept. 29 to Oct. 3. 

Grand Master — ]\I.W. Bro. Eo E. Anderson. 

Lodges, 682. Membership, 237,654. Gain, 3,553. 

This annual meeting of the Grand Lodge of Free 
and Accepted Masons of California is also denominated 
the Dedication Communication, — in reference to the 
ceremony of dedicating the New California Masonic 
Memorial Temple, located in San Francisco. During 
the ceremony, Past Grand Master Edward H. Siems 
reviewed the history of the Memorial Temple, and re- 
quested the Grand INIaster to dedicate it "according to 
ancient form and usage." 

Distinguished guests from England, Scotland, 
France, Philippines, El Salvador, the various provinces 
in Canada, and many of the Grand Lodges of the United 
States were present. In most instances the Grand 
Masters or Past Grand Masters represented their respect- 
ive Grand Lodges. Among these were The Right 
Honorable the Earl of Scarb rough (England), The 
Right Honorable the Earl of Elgin and Kincardin 
(Scotland) and M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Grand 
Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province 
of Ontario. The latter was accompanied by R.W. Bro. 
E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary. 

Many of these guests addressed the Grand Lodge 
and several made noteworthy presentations. The Earl 
of Scarbrough outlined some of the activities of the 
United Grand Lodge of England and presented, on 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

behalf of his Grand Lodge a silver and crystal ink 
stand made in 1783. Other gifts were from such 
foreign Grand Lodges as Scotland. Philippines, El 
Salvador, Alberta, Denmark and Czechoslovakia. 

The Grand Secretary reported that a veteran ^Nlason 
in the home at Decoto had received his 75-year pin. A 
membership analysis showed that in 1957 and 1958, 31*^ 
and 41% of the members were in the 30 to 39 age group ; 
the next higher percentage coming in the 40 to 49 group. 
Occupations represented Skilled Craftsmen, Executive, 
Sales and Clerical, and Professional in order of relative 
percentages. Five new Lodges were formed during 
the year. The schedule of fees for degrees showed 102 
Lodges paying $50.00: 189 paying $75.00; 201 paying 
Sioo.oo; ^2 paying Si 25.00; and two at a maximum of 
$2 1 5.00. The Annual Dues ranged from Si 2.00 to 
S25.00 ^vith the average being $14.45. 

The Grand Secretary lists the members who have 
received 50-year buttons on some nine pages of the 
proceedings, a total of over 500 veterans. 

The Grand Treasurer reported Capital Receipts, 
including Loans and Capital Gains to be $4,501,903.02, 
and total expenses $1,383,733.61. The Treasurer com- 
mented upon the decrease of the purchasing power of the 
dollar during the past 25 years and believed that Grand 
Lodge should recognize that fact. 

The Masonic Homes Endowment Board reported 
the total Endowment Fund to be $8,163,258.55; the 
income from which was $313,658. This amount falls 
far short of the operating expenses of $715,613.00. 
Contributions of $42,633.62 were made by 81,686 
brethren, about 35% of the membership. Wills and 
Bequests through the Lodges contributed $78,913.77. 
Some 365 Lodges donated $2.00 per member and thereby 
acliieved the Honor Roll. 

The Committee on Commercialism condemned some 
of the activities of the Shrine and the Sciots. It is 
illegal for a Mason to belong to the Order of Caritas 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 15 

and Amaranth Foundation, Inc. This was ignored by 
several who were tried and found guilty of unmasonic 
conduct. A number of bodies are listed as requiring- 
Masonic membership, affiliation or sponsorship and are 
subject to the jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand 
Lodge of California. Regulations governing the act- 
ivities of these groups are published. 

The Grand Orator, Mclvin A. Pixley, delivered a 
powerful address entitled, "Proper Communications — Tiie 
Answer." The following ])aragraph provides a ])ortion 
of his advice. 

"JJ'lnif arc iliosc dccah\::;ucs that 7cill aid and assist

The Proceedings contain many interesting reports 
of Committees on various matters wdiich the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in Ontario does not seriously consider, 
including Research, Public Schools, Cemeteries, Club 
Houses, \'isual Aids and Scholarships. These reports 
occupy several pages of the Proceedings. 

The Committee on Recognition of Foreign Grand 
Lodges reported favourably on Grand Lodge, \a.\\t de 
Canca, Coli, Colombia. 

R.W, Phil X. Myers was nominated, elected and 
installed as the ensuing Grand Master. 



16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

CHILE— 1958 

Not many publications on IMasonrv' appear to be 
available from the Grand Lodges of South America. 
One, entitled "Revista Masonica de Chile" , Vol. xxxv, 
March and April, 1958, contains much information record- 
ed in the Spanish language. Although published by 
the Grand Lodges of Chile, it contains coinments on 
Masonry in most parts of South America, 

Considerable space has been devoted to reports 
and problems considered at various Inter- American Con- 
ferences of Symbolic Freemasonry. These have been 
held in IMontevideo, Mexico, Havana and Chile. Other 
Grand Lodges which have been present on various oc- 
casions include Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil 
(Rio de Janeiro and San Publa) and Colombia. 

These conferences appear to have discussed common 
bases for the various Grand Lodges which were represent- 
ed. Four General Principles seem to have met with 
approval, — recognition of individual beliefs, no differenti- 
ation because of race and nationality, recognition of the 
Great Architect of the Universe, and acceptance of the 
three fundamentals, liberty, equality and fraternity. 

The magazine contains many illustrations. Grand 
Masters, Grand Secretaries and prominent Masons. An 
article by M.W. Bro. Ray V. Denslow on The Inter- 
American Confederation Masonic appears in both Spanish 
and English. It is an interesting treatment of Masonry 
in Latin-American Countries. The following quotation 
indicates a solution for consideration. 

"We believe the Inter-American Conference has a 
mission in the Masonic World; it has its deficiences, its- 
troubles, and antagonists. But it offers the only, and 
best plan for the union of the Americas. They are 
best able to judge of their ozvn Latin-American conditions!, 
for their problems are practically identical. We may be 
assured that the irregulars, if such there be, will ultimate- 
ly be weeded out; it is their sole opportunity of working 
together — and working together is essential to attain 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 17 

unity. Language harriers have prevented a proper 
understanding of their problems in the Anglo-Saxon 

world. 

"The Association offers a solution to the problem of 
regularity; if it sincerely strives to carry out its objectives, 
the irregular groups will disappear from the Masonic 
scene." 

The issue for May and June, 1958, gives a rather 
complete account of the Fourth "Conferencia," held in 
Santiago, Chile, April 14th to 20th. Representatives 
were present from Mexico, (Six Grand Lodges), Cuba, 
Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, 
El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Brazil (2 Grand 
Lodges), Colombia (2 Grand Lodges), Ecuador, Venez- 
uela, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Peru and Uruguay. 
Observers were from Gran Orient de Belgica, Gran 
Oriente Espanol en Exilio, and Gran Orient de Italia. 

During the meeting most of the representatives of 
the various Grand Lodges, usually the Grand Masters, 
spoke. The ceremonies closed with a banquet. During 
discussions there appeared to be considerable reference to 

politics and religion. 



COLORADO— 1958 

97th Annual Communication — January 28-29. 

Grand Master — ALW. Bro. D. Aubrey Spann. 

Lodges, 158. Membership, 46,287. Gain, 449. 

During the year the Grand Lodge of Colorado 
conducted ten special communications, — six for dedic- 
ations, three for laying cornerstones and one for the 
funeral of a Past Grand Master. M.W. Bro. D. Aubrey 
Spann presided at all these ceremonies. 

The Committee on Credentials reported 152 Lodges 
present, the average representation being three per Lodge. 



18 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Deceased Past Grand Masters were acknowledged 
by a moment of silence and prayer by the Grand Chaplain. 

The Grand ]M aster reported a busy and interesting 
year. He granted 67 dispensations and refused two ; 
approved 34 by-laws; made 76 visits in Colorado and 13 
at outside affairs. He callled attention to the following 
section of the Constitution on Indebtedness. 

''You should not construct, lease, or purchase a 
building or hall or incur an indebtedness of more than 
ten dollars per capita zvithout the permission of the 
Grand Lodge or the Grand Master." 

He ruled that a violation of Section 87 on voting 
could place a brother subject to trial for unmasonic 
conduct. The Section reads ; — 

"A majority of all the votes cast at an election of 
an officer of a Lodge shall be necessary to elect. Tiie 
voting shall be by zvritten ballots. No one shall solicit 
votes for himself or another for any office, no nomin- 
ation for any office shall be made, and no officer shall be 
elected by motion or resolution." 

The Grand Master made two recommendations 
relative to the Benevolent Funds. 

a. "That the trustees of the Benevolent Funds be 
given the approval of the Grand Lodge to employ the 
necessary help to have the various funds examined as to 
how they came into being, either by money from Grand 
Lodge, cash or estate gifts and bequests, and if deemed 
proper, to find just how their expenditures are circum- 
scribed. The expense of this to be considered as a cost 
of the administration of such funds. 

b. "TJiat the trustees of the Benevolent Funds be 
authorised to employ a Master Mason as full titne 
secretary zvlioi tJiey consider such to be adxisablc." 

The cash and securities for 1957 amounted to 
$914,429.50 in the Investment Fund. The disburse- 
ments in the General Relief Fund were over Forty- 
seven Thousand Five Hundred Dollars. The Grand 
Lodge has several special funds for Relief and Education.

The Grand Orator, Bro. Humber Rees, cliose "What 
Makes You a ]\Iason ?" as the title of his address to 
Grand Lodge. He claimed that there were three essen- 
tial qualities required to make a Mason. 

"This is my belief: that there are three essential 
elements of the Masonie Character : to desire the good, 
to seek the light, to believe in God. Lack any of these, 
and zvhatever your rank or titles, however great the 
honors yon may bear, I shall not name yon Mason. 
Possess them all in fnll measure, and ivJiether yonr hand 
be smooth and well-groomed or caloused and earcivorn, 
I shall be proud to grasp it and call you brother." 

The Committee on Correspondence, under the Chair- 
manship of Bro. C. Wheeler Barnes, reported friendly 
relations with 48 Grand Lodges in the United States and 
69 foriegn Grand Lodges. A few general opinions are 
reported in some four pages. The Committee recom- 
mended recognition of the Grand Lodge Occidental de 
Colombia, Oriente dc Call, and of the Grand Lodge of 
Bahia (Brazil). 

One unique and praiseworthy feature of the Pro- 
ceedings is the inclusion of the picture of the chairman 
of each standing committee, accompanying the printed 
report. 

Glen B. \'an Fleet was elected and installed as 
Grand Master. He was born in Alamosa, Col., in 1501. 
He was educated in the local public schools and went to 
college in Colorado Springs, Col. He became a Mason 
in 1923 and has been active in ATasonry all his life. His 
father had been Grand blaster in 1921.

Lodges, 132. ^Membership, 48,131. Increase, 193. 

Five Special and Emergent Communications, three 
for dedication of temples, and two for laying corner- 
stones, were held in addition to the Annual Meeting. 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Proceedings devote some twenty-four pages 
to the Grand Master's address. In the opening para- 
graphs M.W. Bro. Hahn emphasized the "Brotherhood 
of Man". as "the spirit of our great purpose". Refer- 
ence to deceased brethren is entitled "The Draped Altar." 
Beautiful ritualistic work was commanded, but those who 
become unduly rigorous and vigorous received a word of 
criticism. 

The Grand Master disapproved of the use of candid- 
ate's initiation fees for current operating expenses — a 
decision which will be approved by the Grand Lodges of 
Canada. During the year Comprehensive Organiz- 
ations Liability Insurance Policy was put into force 
and covers all Lodges and Masons in the State. M.W. 
Bro. Hahn refused to be drawn into the "bus bill" 
controversary — permitting the 169 communities of the 
State to decide whether or not it was to provide transport- 
tation for private school students at public expense. He 
also indicates some of the demands of Freemasonry. 

"Freemasonry has obligated us to search for uni- 
versals. It raises no political banners; it charts no 
detailed course of action that we must follow in our 
civic duties. Freemasonry does encourage us to be 
free men, — to act as individual conscience and conviction 
persuade us. But as an organization, our fraternity 
demands anly an ahercnce to the great universal principles 
of reverence for Deity, love for our fellow-man, universal 
benevolence, and respect for truth and zvisdom. So 
mote it be!" 

The use of reserves for various expenses was critic- 
ized by the Grand Master. 

"When a lodge reports a deficit in its financial 
operations for the last year or tzvo, it should realize that 
the 'storm wariiings' are flying, even though such 
shortages have been made good by using a part of the 
lodge's capital reserves. 

"When a Lodge uses Capital reserves or trust funds 
to pay for entertainments or parties, it is treading on the 
quicksands of dubious financial responsibility."

The Grand Master urged that the Chaplain should 
kneel at the altar when he offers prayer to the Supreme 
Being. 

He claimed that one of the great functions of 
Masonry was to inculcate moral virtues, and condemned 
all forms of gambling. 

"Masons should always remember that our fraternity 
has long objected to lotteries and games of chance, not 
merely on legal, but primarily on moral grounds. If 
Freemasonry sincerely 'aims to enliven the spirit of 
philanthropy, and to promote the cause of charity,' it 
must keep pure the spirit of joy in giving, the noblest 
fulfilment of a Master Mason's promise to help, aid 
and assist." 

The Grand Secretary reported that 158 fifty-year 
buttons were presented. The Masonic Charity Found- 
ation reported receipts of $364,569.21. Of this sum 
$282,362.00 was raised by the Six Dollar contribution 
per member. The Secretary expended $312,726.00 for 
the Charity Foundation. There were 165 in the Home 
and 128 in the Hospital during the year, and some 15 
received care outside. The per capita cost for the 
Home was $5.88 and for the Hospital $9.62. 

Albert H. Ruwet was elected and installed as Grand 
Master for the ensuing year. A biography included in 
the Proceedings indicates that he has had a long and 
varied interest in Masonrv.

Fro:i-i the Grand ^Master's Address many helpful 
quotations mig-ht be taken. The following is typical, — 

"It is iiix firm belief tJiat Free Masonry's present 
need, and in fact the paramount need of humanity of our 
time, is a general uplifting of morality. IFhat is the 
best contribution that the Masonic Fraternity can make 
toward this movementf I believe that Free Masons 
must first instill zvithin ourselves the duty of personal, 
moral improvement so that zve may live as good examples 
to the rest of the world." 

The Grand Master paid fitting tribute to the Frater- 
nal Dead, and listed dispensations granted and many 
visits made. Twenty-nine members qualified for the 
Fifty Year Pins. ^I.W. Bro. Phillips spoke highly of 
their ^lasonic Home and dedicated an addition to it. 
Grand Lodge Masonic Home Day is celebrated annually, 
and is normally well attended. The Grand Master 
closed his address by quoting a poem entitled, — 'T Knelt 
W'here Hiram Knelt." Forty guests were in the Home 
during the vear. The average expended per day was 

The Grand Treasurer announced a balance of over 
$15,762.00 at the beginning of the year and some 
$14,573.00 at the end. The Lodge securities are 
$47,215.34. The Charity Fund contains $7,491.73. 
During the year four students were assisted in L'niversit- 
ies or Colleges from the ?ilemorial Scholarships funds, 
which are available in the amount of $4,624.98. 

The Grand Instructor and two of his Assistants 
reported progress in Ritual work. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence recom- 
mended that requests for recognition be approved for 
Gran Logia de Santa Caterina, in Brazil ; Grand Lodge 
of Japan ; and Gran Logia Occidental de Colombia 
at Cali. 

The Committee on Necrology listed several Past 
Grand Officers from various Grand Jurisdictions and 
conducted a fittins: -Memorial Service. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

Charles \V. Lewis was elected and installed as 
Grand Master for the ensuing year. 

The History and Research Committee made an 
interesting report on ''Masonic Duels". The charge 
of the Master of the Lodge to the participants was 
forceful and fitting. 

Some thirty pages are given to Reviews of other 
Grand Jurisdictions by W. Stewart iMlmond, P.G.AL 
and he concluded his report by referring to the various 
Grand Jurisdictions in Canada. He quoted a paragraph 
from tine address of ]\r.\V. Bro. W'. L. Wright, which 
begins ''\\'hat of the Future?" 



DENMARK— 1957-1958 

Grand ]^Iaster — ^I.W. Bro. Georg Hansen. 

Two communications from the Grand Lodge of 
Denmark were forwarded during the year, — one the 
annual report of the Grand ^Master, and the other, an 
announcement by the new Grand ]^Iaster, ]\L\\'. Bro. 
Einer Carlson, of Officers and Committees of Grand 
Lodge for 1958- 1959. Both items of correspondence 
are printed in EngHsh. 

Grand )*Iaster, Georg Hansen, mentioned such 
factors as : 

"Changes ill mimhcrs of members, the internal 
zi'ork ti'ithin the fraternity, the external zvork, economic 
developments and results of zvork zcitJiin the joint zvork- 
ing groups.'' 

^Membership had increased but not to such an 
extent as in the previous year : financial developments 
progressed in a most reassuring manner : and the journal 
"Frimureren" continued to be of a higher character. 

Grand Lodge Officers consecrated the Xew Temple 
at Viborg. a project which was highly commended 
especially in view of the fairly recent establishment of the 



24 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Lodge there. The Grand Master complimented the 
Lodges in Copenhagen for their endeavours to procure 
larger and better Lodge premises. 

He concluded his report in the hope that Masonic 
work in the Lodges would continue along well established 
lines for the well-being and growth of Grand Lodge. 



DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA— 1957 

147th Annual Communication — December 18. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Ray Baker Harris. 

Lodges, 48. Membership, 24,473. Loss, 414. 

A brief biographical sketch of the Grand Master 
precedes the chronological records of various meetings of 
the Grand Lodge. Stated and Special Communications 
occupy about the first forty pages. 

In commenting on the loss in membership for the 
fourth consecutive year in the District of Columbia, the 
Grand Secretary claimed it was largely due to shifts of 
portions of the population to Maryland and Virginia. 

The Special Committee, appointed to prepare a mem- 
orial to the late ALW. Bro. Carl H. Claudy, submitted a 
very excellent report and the Secretary was authorized 
to edit 250 copies for distribution. 

The Committee on Jurisprudence recommended that 
the request of High Twelve International to establish a 
subordinate luncheon club in the District of Columbia be 
denied. 

Recognition, with exchange of Grand Represent- 
atives, of the Grand Ix)dge of Tamaulipas and Grand 
Lodge of Nuevo Leon (both of Mexico) was recom- 
mended. 

The Grand Lodge is represented by three members 
on the Board of Directors of the Masonic and Eastern 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 25 

Star Home. There are 132 guests in the home all 
sponsored by Lodges and Chapters. The construction 
of a building to connect the Main Building and the 
Infirmary is under consideration. 

The Grand Master gave thoughtful attention to 
many problems in his address. Speaking of decreases 
in membership, several quotations might be cited. 

"If we mitst adjust our Masonry in the District of 
Columbia to fewer members, we had best get to it; and 
fewer numbers could even be made to mean a more 
personal, vital and enthusiastic Masonry than zve have 
ever had before. Our problem is serious. It is not 
yet critical, nor likely to become so in the immediate 
future. Time is still on our side. 

"Fezver members zvould be no great problem itself. 
The difficulty in these days is primarily economic. Rents 
and all the other expenses connected ^vith the operation 
of a lodge, particularly a city lodge, may easily become 
prohibitive. The jurisdiction as a whole has long- 
standing commitments in the maintenance of our Grand 
Lodge Temple, in the support of our Masonic and Eastern 
Star Home, zvhich decreasing total membership wnll 
make more difficult. These are the problems to which 
■we must dedicate ourselves." 

Thirteen pins for 50-year membership were present- 
ed on behalf of other Jurisdictions, and some 51 were 
given to local members during the year. 

At the St. John's Day Communication, William H. 
Rohrman was elected and installed as Grand Master. 

The use of amplifying equipment in the conferring 
of degrees was considered unnecessary and often in- 
convenient. 

Bro. J. Williamson Cook reported on Correspond- 
ence in some 65 pages, giving about a page to Canada in 
Ontario. There is a fine quotation from the address 
of M.W. Bro. (Rev.) W. L. Wright.

ENGLAND— 1958 

Quarterly Communications 

Grand Master — M.W. Rt. Hon. the Earl of Scarbrough, 
KG., G.S.C.I., G. CLE, G.C.V.O,T.D. 

The United Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and 
Accepted Masons of England meets quarterly in March, 
June, September and December, and holds an Annual 
Livestiture on or about April 30th. As the Grand 
^Master usually retains his office during his life-time, 
the election and installation occurs only occasionally. 

In 1958 the Ear: of Scarbrough was proclaimed to 
be Grand 5laster by the Director of Ceremonies. The 
Grand Master then appointed R.W. Bro. the Earl of 
Derby, ^l.C, as Deputy Grand Master and R.W. Bro. 
Sir Allan Adair as Assistant Grand Master. Then the 
Grand Secretary, W. Bro. James Stubbs, announced the 
names of newly-appointed Grand Officers and various 
promotions. Prior to the Investiture ceremonies the 
Grand Master paid a tribute to the late Grand Secretary, 
R.W. Bro. Sir Sydney White, from which the following 
paragraph is quoted : — 

'Sydney White served Freemasonry, in the broadest 
sense, icith great devotion for the greater part of his life. 
I think his serviee can quite simply be spoken of as of 
two kinds: his zi'ork, which was scrupulous, able and un- 
remittent; and his example, zvhich made so manv of us 
think of him as the kind of man a freemason should be, 
a man of integrity and of great kindliness towards his 
fellows. By Jiis ivork and his example he helped a 
great deal to keep the standard of Freemasonry high in 
the Grand Lodge of England, and I think you all knozv 
that his influence zcas recognized in many parts of the 
Masonic zvorld." 

The business of Quarterly Meetings is submitted 
largely by the Board of General Purposes and the Board 
of Benevolence. At the March Communication the 
Grand Master and several other Grand Officers were 
re-elected and proclaimed. The Board of General 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 27 

Purposes called attention to the publication of "Points 
of Procedure" in the last few pages of the Masonic Year 
Book. The United Grand Lodge showed a registry 
of 6,831 Lodges, — 1.604 in London, 4,411 Provincial and 
816 District and Abroad in 1957. Certificates issued 
for the year were 17,575 at Freemasons' Hall and 2,803 
by District Grand blasters. Benevolent grants amounted 
to £16,100. 

At the June meeting the Board of Benevolence 
reported meetings for the relief of 126 petitioners to 
whom grants of £13,785 were given. Tributes were 
paid to the late Secretary, and the Library and Museum 
were mentioned. The Library contains about 20,000 
volumes many of which are of great value. Special 
exhibitions are held from time to time. 

At the September Quarterly the Board of Benevo- 
lence approved grants of £13.275 to 117 petitioners. The 
Board of General Purposes reported that the Trustees 
of the Prestonian Fund had appointed W. Bro. Rev. L 
S. Purvis, O.B.E., ,A1.A.. D.D, (Cantab), F.S.A.,P.M. 
as Prestonian Lecturer for 1959. Ernest H. Cooper, 
President of the Board announced that the Grand Master, 
Sir Allan Adair, and the Grand Secretary would go to 
America to attend the opening ceremonies for the new 
Masonic Temple in California. 

At the December Ouarierly, The Grand ]^Iaster, Rt. 
Hon. the Earl of Scarbrough, reported on the visit of the 
]\Iasonic Mission to California to participate in the 
Dedication of the new Temple. The proceedings con- 
clude with the address which the Grand ^Master made to 
the Grand Lodge of California.

28 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master's address includes appendices 
listing-, — Dispensations Granted, Emergent Communic- 
ations, Amendments and Revision of By-laws, and 
District Meetings — indicating a busy year. His Message 
to the brethren is emphasized in this quotation. 

"My strong belief in God and His many blessings 
and my firm belief in my fellozu man have made this a 

most harmonious year J am happy to report that 

good fcllozvship and brotherly love have prevailed all 
over this Grand Jurisdiction." 

The Grand Treasurer showed available funds of 
$1,353,394.80 and disbursements of $685,976.96. 

The Grand Secretary reported that 28 fifty-year 
certificates and lapel buttons and 104 twenty-five year 
certificates had been issued. Over twenty pages are 
given to various financial funds, among these being the 
Alasonic Home and Masonic Home Endowment Funds. 
The investments in the latter are $1,220,385.48 producing 
a revenue of $31,333.09. 

On the second day several ladies representing the 
Order of the Eastern Star and the Order of the Rainbow 
for Girls were received and later the wives of Grand 
Lodge Officers were presented. After these courtesies 
labour was resumed. 

The report of the Board of Trustees of the Masonic 
Home of Florida is interesting and complete, showing 
120 residents in the Home, and indicating additions to the 
infirmary and equipment and remodelling of chapel areas. 
The estimate for the ensuing year is 125 residents. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence recom- 
mended recognition of the Grand Ivodge of Colombia at 
Baranquilla and the Grand Lodge of Japan, but Guate- 
mala was held in abeyance. 

The Grand Orator, Bro. Leonard F. Chapman 
delivered the Annual Oration entitled "The Invisible 
Bridge". He refers to Masonry in these words, — 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 29 

"In a zvord, Masonry attempts to build a better 
world. Build, Ah, that is the zvord. Masons are 
builders. We built temples, viaducts, forts, castles and 
cathedrals in the old days. Slozvly zve changed our 
emphasis from material things to social, spiritual, ethereal, 
unseen ones. To use a metaphor, I have thought of 
Masonry on the whole as an age-long effort to build 
a bridge — an invisible bridge it is true — but a bridge 
nevertheless across zvhich we can move against all the 
troubles and vicious practices that have made mankind 
so tragically unhappy." 

He then discusses the importance and functions of 
bridges assisting in the struggles against crime, ignorance, 
poverty and opression. 

For success in these efforts he makes three suggest- 
ions. 

"We march in noble company. High-minded men 
for three thousand years have been our forebears. . . . 

"Trivial distractions can be traitors to the high 
mission of Masonry, for they becloud the shining goal 
that lies far in the future. . . . 

"We are not lost in the mass. Although Masonry 
is zvorld-wide in its scope, we are not asked to lose our 
identity. Indeed we help the great movement best by 
becoming strong here in Florida in our ozvn right." 

The report of the Committee on Foreign Correspond- 
ence occupies some 58 pages, of which Canada (Province 
of Ontario) gets one. 

M.W. Bro. J. Lewis Hall was elected and installed 
as Grand Master. 



GEORGIA— 1958 

172nd Annual Communication — October 28-29. 

Grand Master — :M.W. Bro. John C. Kaufman 

Lodges, 482. Membership, 99,310. Gain, 703. 

The Grand Master was busy during the year, con- 
stituting seven new Lodges, laying seven comer-stones 



30 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

and presiding at seven dedications. He attended meet- 
ings of the "Order of Amaranth", "Order of Eastern 
Star". "Rainbow for Girls", and "Order of DeMolay", 
and visited each of the twelve Masonic District Conven- 
tions in Georgia. 

Under the heading, "The Craft at Labor", the 
Grand Master enunciates the need and function of 

^ilasonr}-. 

''TJic oldest iiuDiuscripf knoiK'u. rcposhig in the 
library at Alexandria, Egypt, begins: 'This is a changing 
world.' That is certainly true today. Never has there 
been greater need for understanding among men and 
never a time for Masons to put their teachings to use. 
Nezer a greater opportunity for service to humanity. It 
li'as Lord Halifax zcho said, 'Service is the rent we 
pay for our room o// earth'. " 

Some I02 members were presented with Fifty-Year 
Awards, and the Grand Master is listed as attending to 
some 285 matters of Masonic business, frequently in- 
volving two or more meetings on the same day. He 
concluded bis address by referring to his extensive 
journeying through Georgia several times emphasizing 
the theme of his addresses. "To practice out of the Lodge 
those great moral precepts taught us within it." 

The Secretary's Summary of Receipts and Dis- 
bursements showed Receipts from all sources to be 
$205,732.04. The Treasurer showed total receipts of 
$342.f;-''\;.70 and disbursen-^ents of $243,513.31 of which 
he paid $26,640.00 to the ?vIasonic Home. The Trustees 
of the Home report the total Assets and Bonds to be 
$249,994.78. 

During the vear the INIasonic Home extended the 
facilities of the Home to serve an increasing number of 
dependent children. The lodges, about 75% of them, 
have contributed to the support of the Home and Higher 
Education Fund. The Home controls some 600 acres 
of land which is o\er half in timber. The Superintendent 
of the Home submitted a complete annual report, mention- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 31 

ing- some of the Farm and other facihties. In addition to 
this relief, the Board of ReHef of the Grand Lodge of 
Georgia approved 21 Emergency Grants and 14 monthly 
allowances. 

The Committee appointed to study the Home and 
related problems reported in favour of some consideration 
for older people. — 

"There is general agreement that older persons 
should live in their ozvn homes just as long as they can 
possibly do so in conditions of health and decency. 
Many people, hotvevcr, eventually reach the stage ivhere 
some alternatic'e liz'ing arrangement must be m-ade and it 
is for those people ivho arc Masons or their zviz-es or 
their -tcidozcs that iK.'e need a Masonic Home for the 
Aging." 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence recom- 
mended the extension of fraternal recognition to the 
Grand Lodges of L'^rael, Greece and China. 

Thirty-five pages are allocated to Reviews of other 
Grand Jurisdictions. Canada (Ontario) receives one 
half page largely devoted to a quotation from ]\L\V. Bro. 
\\'right's address. 

R. yi. \"andergriff, Sr., was elected and installed 
as Grand blaster for 1958-1959. 



GERMANY— 1958 

Grand ^Master — ^L\\'. Bro. Dr. Theodor \'ogel 

"Die A'ereinigte Grossloge" is the official publication 
of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted 
Masons of Germany. It appears si.x times every year, 
each issue covering a period of two months. The Grand 
Master. Theodor \'ogel, is generally responsible for the 
first message appearing in each issue under the heading, 
"Aleine Lieber Broder!" 

The March-April issue has a biography of Johann 
Caspar Bluntschli. a distinguished Past Grand Master, 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

covering some four pages followed by excerpts from 
some of his orations. Some space is devoted to refer- 
ences to other Grand Lodges ; and there is reference to 
Masonic Music by Jan Sibelius. References and articles 
on Bluntschli continue in the May- June magazine mark- 
ing particularly the 150th anniversary of the birth of 
this worthy brother. Considerable space in this issue 
is devoted to the International Freemason's Congress in 
Wiesbaden in May, 1958. 

In the July-August magazine there is a fine re- 
production of the Masonic Hall and some of its rooms 
in Berlin ; and some five pages, devoted to the programme 
and time-table for the convention and the daily order of 
business, are included. 

The September-October reports include Memorial 
pages, referring to prominent deceased brethren. The 
Grand Master opened the meeting in Berlin with a 
somewhat lengthy but interesting address, chiefly de- 
voted to the work of the Grand Lodge, the condition of 
Masonry in the country, and the progress made in 1958. 

A table shows the gradual increase in recognition 
of the Grand Lodge of Germany by other Grand Jurisdic- 
tions from one in 1948 to 141 in 1958. Eight Grand 
Lodges in Canada now recognize Germany. 

On April 27th, 1958, the United Grand Lodge of 
Germany issued in the English language, and distributed 
"The Magna Charta of German Freemasonry, 1958." 
This publication contains some 12 sections, many with 
several paragraphs, and states the allegiance, organiz- 
ation, government and various functions of "The United 
Grand Lodge of Germany, the Brotherhood of German 
Freemasons". 



ICELAND— 1958-59 

The Annual Report of the Grand Lodge of Iceland 
consists of a small book of some 88 pages, forwarded to 
our Grand Lodge from the Grand Secretary, Freemason's 
Hall, Borgartium 4, Reykjavik, Iceland. The officers 



I 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

and committees of Grand Lodge and the members of 
individual Lodges are listed. 

The roll of Grand Lodges and other Masonic 
organizations with which Iceland is in harmony appears 
to be rather complete. For Europe the Grand Al asters 
or Senior Officers are mentioned, but for other countries 
and their Grand Lodges only the Grand Secretaries and 
the Grand Representatives are recorded. Ross L. Dobbin 
represents the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province 
of Ontario, and Tomas Tomasson serves in Iceland. 

Lodges and members are listed in groups named 
St. Andr. and St. Job and each group has a distinctive 
crest. There are no minutes of meetings, and no 
addresses are reported. 

Apparently "Frimurareglan A tslandi" is prepared 
and distributed bv the Grand Secretary of Iceland. 



IDAHO— 1958 

92nd Annual Communication — September 16-18. 

Grand Master— M.W. Bro. Herbert II. Eberle. 

Lodges, 84. Membership, 14,751. Gain, 163. 

A photograph of the Grand Master followed by a 
brief biography serve to introduce the proceedings of the 
Grand Lodge of Idaho. The Grand Master has been 
in the insurance business in Boise since 1935. He has 
shown great interest in various civic and Masonic act- 
ivities. 

Towards the beginning of his address M.W. Bro. 
Eberle spoke of the departed brethren in these words, — 

"So the Hzrs of our departed, the zvords they have 
spoken, the zvounds they healed, and the things they 
have done remain zvith us as a blessed heritage and 
inspiration. They hare defeated death and oblivion, 
because they have lived so completely. Therefore this 



34 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

occasion has a deep and solemn significance to those for 
whom the final summons has severed intimate, helpful 

and trusted associations and friendships." 

The Grand blaster continued by giving an outline of 
the many meetings he had attended, the By-laws he had 
approved, the dispensations he had dealt with, and the 
rulings he had made. Towards the end of his address 
he offered this advice to wardens. 

"To he a successful Master, one shoidd begin to 
prepare himself for that exalted station upon assuming his 
first Lodge office, and as Junior and Senior Warden his 
efforts should he redouhled. He shoidd throroughly 
familiarise himself with all details of Lodge operation, 
just as he zvoidd familiarise himself with the details of 
a nezv business purchased or taken over, thus securing 
for himself information of vital importance to the proper 
administration of his Lodge, and without which real 
success cannot he attained." 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations, with M.W. 
Bro. Sumner G. Davis as chairman, recommended care 
in considering applications for recognition especially in 
reference to Grand Lodges in South America. Only 
the National Grand Lodge in France is recognized. The 
new Grand Lodge at Santa Catarina in Brazil was men- 
tioned but more information was awaited before any 
recommendation would be offered. Fraternal relations 
with the Grand Lodge of Japan were approved. 

The Grand Treasurer reported the receipts for the 
year at $78,675.19 and the expenses at $58,459.17. The 
favourable balance added to the Cash on Hand at the 
beginning of the year totalled $62,351.80. The Cash and 
Investments labelled "Relief" amounted to $226,412.56. 

The Grand Secretary reported 35 brethren who had 
become entitled to wear fifty-year lapel buttons ; and 
some 68 recommendations for Certificates for Proficiency 
for Worshipful Masters had come from the District 
Deputy Grand Masters. 

One of the most interesting features of the pro- 
ceedings lis the report of a Committee appointed by the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

Grand ]\Iaster to review and report on a questionnaire 
entitled "The Functions of a Masonic Lodge". The 
Committee's report occupied some seven pages of ex- 
cellent information and discussion. The following 
paragraph will serve as a sample. 

"As to the value of Masonry to its members, it is 
felt that the lack of interest and attendance is more a 
reflection of the acctractiveness of Lodge meetings and a 
lack of being asked to take part, than a lack of value of 
Masonry to its members. Masons do not readily give 
up their membership. There is something in what they 
have obtained which impels continued membership. With 
this fundamental value apparently so great, attendance 
and interest would undoubtedly improve with correction 
of zveakncsses disclosed by the survey such as proficient 
work, properly planned and executed programs, and 
other activities." 

Glen W. Royse was elected and installed as Grand 
Master, The new Grand Secretary is Herbert H. Eberle. 



ILLINOIS— 1958 

119th Annual Communication — October lo-ii. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Harold R. Kopfman. 

Lodges, 963. Membership, 246,639. Loss, 2,206. 

Among the forty-four visitors was IM.W. Bro. 
Joseph A. Hearn, P.G.M,, Grand Lodge of Canada, in 
the Province of Ontario. Seven Past Grand Masters 
of Illinois were presented and welcomed. 

The Grand Master commented upon his visit to the 
Conference of Grand Masters, Grand Secretaries' Confer- 
ence, George Washington National Masonic Memorial 
and the Masonic Service Association. He recommended 
a change in their Code, "permitting Lodges to participate 
in honourable and zvholesome actizities other than 
business meetings or degree zvork on Sundays." 

Consolidation was effected betrsveen six pairs of 
Lodges. 



36 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master commented on the necessity for 
higher fees. The officers of Grand Lodge met early 
and adopted a four-point programme. 

"i. (a) Create social activity 

(b) Make lodge meetings more interesting 

(c) Clean up lodge hall, paint and repair 
temples and spruce up temple grounds 

(d) Clean garments and paraphernalia 

2. Increase income {raise fees and dues) 

3. Create lodge charity fund 

4. Enlarge Homes Endozvment Fund." 

Most Masons would agree on the importance of 
these activities. In his address the Grand Master 
enlarged on these suggestions. The Sullivan Home 
requires $500,000 annually for maintenance and the 
Children's Home a La Grange about $250,000. A 
portion of the cost is raised from a levy of $2.25 against 
each member's annual dues. 

The number of Districts in Illinois is 115 and these 
are divided into seven divisions. The Grand Master 
was able to visit each Division at least once. The Grand 
Master closed his address with this admonition. — 

"Let your chief care he the advancement of the 
society of which you have the honor to he members." 

One of the high-lights of the Communication was an 
address by the Grand Orator, R.W. Bro. Harry X. Cole. 
The following excerpts indicate considerable Masonic 
philosophy. 

"Masonry demonstrates its greatest glory and ful- 
fills its highest destiny — hy instilling moral principles and 
building sterling character in the individual man. 

"The search for truth has been one of the chief 
aims of mankind. 

"Being a Mason is an honor, an obligation, an op- 
portunity, a challenge and a destiny. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 37 

"Mary Baker Eddy said, 'Divine Love has always 
met and always zvill meet every human need.' Upon this 
rock, we, as Masons, are privileged to found the inner 
personal Church of our fraternal edifice. 

"A nation is more than an artificial creation by 
which men secure safety and enjoy material prosperity. 
It is embodiment and expression of the most intimate 
and sacred emotions of its people." 

The Grand Officers were re-elected. 

Tb.e review of Masonic Correspondence is under 
the chairmanship of Bro. Everett L. Lawrence and oc- 
cupies over 60 pages. Canada (Ontario) is given 
abuost one and one-half pages. There is a kindly 
reference to our reviews of Illinois. 



INDIANA— 1958 

136th Annual Communication — A'lay 20-21. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. August J. Sieloff. 

Lodges, 546. Membership, 185,211. Gain, 595. 

The Grand Master died just two days prior to the 
Annual Communication, and the Deputy Grand Master, 
Theo J. Jena, presided. Representatives of 531 Lodges 
were present. Harry L. Alartyn, Grand Master, and 
E. G. Dixon. Grand Secretary, were in attendance 
representing the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province 
of Ontario. ]\LW. Bro. Martyn responded to the address 
of welcome. 

The Grand Master's address was read by the Deputy 
Grand ]\Iaster. In it there was a feeling reference to 
deceased brethren and a request for prayer to the Grand 
Chaplain. The condition of Masonry was quite satis- 
factory and progress had been made. The report 
reads, — 

"Disciplinary action has been at a minimum and 
grievances are practically nil with jurisdiction presenting 
the only problems and those hardly worth mentioning." 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In 1957 eleven Lodges held Centennial Celebrations, 
some of which were attended by most Grand Lodge 
officers. The Grand Master made many visitations in 
Indiana, laid five cornerstones and dedicated three new 
temples. He spoke highly of the Grand Masters' Con- 
ference, the George Washington Masonic National Mem- 
orial and the Masonic Service Association. 

The new Nursing Hospital added to the old hospital 
of the Indiana Masonic Home was highly commended. 
It was proposed that the maintenance per capita tax be 
increased from three to four dollars so that the home 
could be operated at its full capacity of 500. 

The Grand Master spoke words of commendation 
for the Order of the Eastern Star, Order of Rainbow 
for Girls, Order of Job's Daughters and DeMolay 
Chapters. He concluded his address with this para- 
graph. 

"Now, zvhat of the future F I believe the genius of 
Masonry is that it has lived as an influence for good 
dozvn through the years belause it represents a method 
of living that is based on those principles of truth and 
right that zve are assured will abide forever. Though 
zve may be discouraged by happenings of our time in the 
zuorld scene, zve should never abandon our faith in the 
eternal truth that the promises of God are true." 

The Grand Treasurer reported a grand total in all 
funds of $1,519,993.88. 

The Grand Secretary reports much statistical data 
and analyzes and compares records. Forty-eight Lodges 
have memberships under 100, and fifteen exceed 1500, 
with the majority between 100 and 299. Fees of $30.00 
are paid by 135 Lodges; one pays $125.00; and eleven 
pay $100.00, The lowest annual dues are three dollars 
(3 Lodges); the highest $25.00 (i Lodge); and 208 
Lodges pay ten dollars. 

The Commdttee on Foreign Fraternal Relations 
recommend recognition of the Grand Lodge of the Dom- 
inican Republic, Grand Lodge of Japan, Grand Lodge of 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

Santa Catarina (Brazil), Grand Lodge of Santander 
(Colombia), Grand Lodge Occidental (Colombia) ; and 
withdrawal of recognition of rival Lodges in Sao Paula 
(Brazil). 

The Grand Secretary reviewed Masonry in the 

United States rather effectively. This report is followed 
by brief summaries of the proceedings of other Grand 
Jurisdictions, including Canada in Ontario. 



IOWA— 1958 

114th Annual Communication — September 18-20. 

Grand blaster — M.W. Bro. Glenn A. Foster. 

Lodges, 548. Membership, 94,863. Net Loss, 292. 

The proceedings report "Public Exercises" prior to 
the official opening of Grand Lodge. These included, — 
a thirty-minute recital at the Hammond Organ by Bro. 
Edward G. Stein ; the invocation by the Past Grand 
Chaplain, presentation of colors, introduction of the Grand 
Master and his wife and an address of welcome by the 
Mayor of Davenport. The Deputy Grand Master 
responded to the Mayor's address and the chairman intro- 
duced representatives of the Order of Eastern Star and 
announced the programme for the ladies. The audience 
was dismissed by Rev. Bro. Russell K. Johnson, Dean of 
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. 

The Grand Master's address covers some twelve 
pages of the proceedings. He remarked that he had 
visited many Lodges and other Masonic gatherings and 
was impressed with the interest and enthusiasm displayed 
by the brethren This reminder should appeal to any 
thoughtful Mason, 

"May all of us keep in viind that good men are 
attracted to Masonry by the manner in ivhich its teachings 
are reflected in our lives, and tliat our Order can continue 
to maintain a healthy growth in no other way." 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

He attended the Ritual Instruction in several schools 
and was highly pleased with the work of District Lectu- 
€rs and Masonic Instruction. He conducted four dedic- 
ations and expressed opinions on several questions sub- 
mitted by various Lodges. One interesting ruling is 
this, — 

"Held: The Tyler has no right to he relieved of the 
duties of his office that he may exercise the right to vote, 
but if he is present in the lodge room he may exercise 
that right." 

In the Grand Lodge of Canada the Tyler may vote, 
a substitute assuming his duties for the time he has to 
vacate his position to enter the Lodge and cast his ballot. 

He commented on the distressing low attendance of 
Lodges at the Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. 
Over a five-year period, 1950 to 1954 inclusive, 41 lx)dges 
had not been represented, 90 had missed four, 79 were 
not at three and 310 Lodges missed at least once. Less 
than 250 Lodges had a perfect attendance. Some im- 
provement has been shown since 1955. 

The Grand Secretary also serves as Librarian. He 
reported on the Fraternal Dead and the Washington Con- 
ference. In Iowa conferences of Lodge Secretaries are 
often held, five being assembled in 1958. He urged the 
Lodges to make greater use of the Grand Lodge Bulletin. 
As Librarian he noted that there were 65,000 volumes, 
and the files showed 1,367 books loaned during the year. 
The register showed 2,419 visitors from 41 states and 10 
foreign countries. 

The net cash receipts from dues and fees were 
$308,421.60. The fees and dues for Charity funds in- 
cluded $14,145.42 for benevolence, and $61,283.28 for the 
Masonic Sanitarium. From all sources the net paid to 
the Grand Treasurer was $540,546.40. 

The Committee on Grand Lodge Recognition recom- 
mended in favour of recognition for the Grand Lodge of 
Japan, for the Grand Lodge United of Sao Paulo, but 
rejected the Grand Lodge of Colombia — Occidental, the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

Grand Lodge of France, and the Grand Lodge of 
Uruguay. 

The Library Committee reported some 15 topics on 
which various brethren had prepared papers and presented 
them in the 15 districts. Iowa has a Speakers' Bureau, 
Films and Projectors and Slides. Masonic Education 
is a major activity of the Grand Lodge of Iowa. 

Ray R. Douglass, P.G.M., presented the report of 
the Committee on Fraternal Reviews. These occupy 
about 75 pages with Canada receiving one. Consider- 
able attention is given to the opinions expressed bv ]\I.\V. 
Bro. Rev. W. L. Wright. 

]\I.W. Bro. C. Dale Cox was elected Grand Master. 



IRELAND— 1958 

Grand IMaster !M.\\'. Bro. Raymond Frederick Brooke. 

The Grand Lodge of Ireland held an enthusiastic 
meeting on St. John's Day, 1958, at which the Grand 
;M aster was received with enthusiasm and continued 
applause. He referred briefly to the loss sustained 
through the death of the Grand Treasurer, R.W. Bro. 
Jonathan Pirn. He reviewed the progress of Masonry 
in the Jurisdiction and particularly in the local Prov- 
incial Grand Lodges. 

The Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. J. O. Harte, 
reported the re-election of the Grand Master, and the 
appointment of the various other Grand Lodge Officers. 
He referred to the selection of a few new Provincial 
Grand blasters both at home and abroad. Incidentally 
there are many Provincial Grand Lodges in various parts 
of the world, all under the supervision of Provincial 
Grand Masters. In other areas abroad Lodges are 
under the supervision of Grand Inspectors. Interesting 
reports from these widely scattered jurisdictions are 
contained in some 45 pages of the Annual Report. 

Under Masonic Benevolent Institutions, the Girls' 
School, the Boys' School and the A''istoria Jubilee Masonic 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Annuity Fund are mentioned. In the Girls' School 
some 91 pupils are enrolled, and in the Boys' School 
there are 107 on the roll. About £10,000 were given 
in Bequests during the year to these benevolent efforts. 
Subscriptions wer over £51,000. 

Among the visitors to the Grand Lodge during the 
year were M.W. Bro. Wm. L. Wright, Grand IMaster 
of the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province of 
Ontario. 

The Annual Report concludes by recording various 
Grand Ix)dge Officers, Grand Lodges, Grand Represent- 
atives, Grand Secretaries, the Grand Treasurer's Report, 
and a list of the Lodges on the Register of the 10,016 
Grand Lodges of Ireland. 



ISRAEL— 1958 

Grand Master — ]\I.Vr. Bro. (Dr.) Jona Ron. 

The Grand Lodge of the State of Israel publishes 
a magazine four times annually, each issue in English and 
Hebrew, under the editorship of Bro. E. Dublinsky. The 
title of the publication is Haboneh Hahofshi (The Free- 
mason). 

The Grand IMaster, Dr. Jona Ron, sends a message 
to his brethren each quarter. In January he announced 
his intention to visit Grand Lodges abroad to strengthen 
the ties of brotherly love. His April report was from 
New York, and he expressed appreciation of the high 
esteem in which the Grand Lodge of Israel is held. 

In the June issue the Grand Master expresses grat- 
itude to the Grand Secretary and Committees who con- 
ducted the business of Grand Lodge so efficiently during 
his absence. He refers to the building of temples in 
Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and of the Parents Home at 
Nahariya. He also urged encouragement of the Mutual 
Insurance Fund. 

The Grand Master commences his message in the 
September issue in these words. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

'This day zve stand before the New Year Five 
Thousand Seven Hundred and Nineteen as the people 
of Isreal count their years, that is, from the Day of 
Creation {A.M. or A.H.) also the Year of Light (A.L.), 
as Freemasons calculate in accordance ivith Masonic 
tradition. 

"The Hebrew Nation and the Freemasons, whose 
doctrines and traditions are closely intermingled, draw 
encouragement and might for their glorious and just 
aspirations zvhen a nczv year begins, a time for soul- 
searching and repentant meditation. 

"This spark of hope scintillates before tis ivith

ates the darkness of all the days of the year. In these 
dreadful days, zvhen the chosen leaders of nations are 
zceighing the means that lead to peace and happiness

our heart to the Great Architect of the Universe in prayer 
and hope that He zvill make them pure in heart, grant 
them rcnezvcd strength, that they may be capable of 
choosing the good for the zcJwle universe and its in- 
habitants." 

In the Secreary's report on the 1957 Grand Lodge 
meeting- he deals with the activities of various com- 
mittees. Israel was then in friendly relations with 89 
Grand Lodges, 46 in the U.S.A., 13 in Central America, 
12 in South America, 5 in Canada, 9 in Europe, 2 in 
Australia and one in Asia. The 45 Lodges of the Grand 
Lodge of Israel had received some 188 new members 
during the year. The Secretary said in conclusion. 

"Our Order is a large organization, developed and 
developing, and requires consistent surveillance, vigour, 
time, work and experience." 

The editor, E. Dublinsky, published a brilliant 
article on the "The Origins of Freemasonry" in the April 
magazine. The Grand Almoner, Abraham Fellman has 
also written several pages on "King Solomon's Temple in 
Freemasonry." 

The July issue of "The Freemason" has a fine 
report of "Laying the Cornerstone of Additional Wing

to Masonic Parents Home, Nahariya.'' Only eleven 
months had elapsed since the Consecration of the original 
building. R.W. Bro. Jacob Caspi, P.G.M. reported on 
his visit to England in the September issue, which also 
contains reviews of the proceedings of some 15 Grand 
Lodges. 

The impression this reviewer had was that the 
Grand Lx)dge of Israel was doing careful and very useful 
]Masonic work. 



KANSAS— 1958 

102nd Annual Communication — March 12-13. 

Grand ^Master — M.W. Bro. Richard L. Becker. 

Lodges, 439. ^Membership, 101,277. Gain, 16. 

The Committee on Credentials reported a total rep- 
resentation of 753 in Grand Lodge including members 
from 251 Lodges and 57 Grand Representatives. 

The address of the Grand ^Master was an excellent 
and complete report of his year's service. He emphasized 
the necessity of an understanding of the meaning of 
Masonry. 

"Each of us must over and over, again and again, 
remind oiiselves and 'preach' to our brethren the real 
essence of Masonry. While I wish that every petitioner 
li'ould seek admission into our ranks only from the 
loftiest of motives, his reason for coming to us truly 
matters little. But, I am deeply troubled about the 
loftiness of the motives of the petitioner afer he has been 
raised upon the five points of fellowship. .This is 
important! 

"Hozu long has it been since you did something with 
or for a brother because he was a Masonf Is Masonry 
a Fraternity to youf Do you feel that your fellozv- 
Mason is a brother? Are your Masonic obligations a 
check and an inspiration in daily living? Great is the 
danger that Masonry, too, may fall victim to the zvorship 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 45 

of bigness of body to the exclusion of humble striving 
for bigness of heart. . . . 

"Masonry is a fraternal organisation ivhich admits 
into its ranks only men who believe in Almighty God, 
and tvhom it believes are of good character; and by 
its ceremonies of initiation and its lectures Masonry 
instructs its members in good conduct and uprightness 
of manhood. It keeps secret the exact nature of its 
ritual and certain grips and signs as means of recog- 
nition and to strengthen the spirit of brotherhood." 

He urged readiness to tell a sincere non-Mason what 
Masonry is, since it has nothing to hide. His most 
important suggestion was probably, — 

"Live as Masons. Yet, only here, outside the tiled 
lodge, can zi'e contribute to the growth of Masonry in 
greatness of heart. Only as each Mason lives his 
belief in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of 
Man can our fraternity stand straight, strong and tall." 

The Kansas Masonic Home is held in high esteem 
by the Brethren. During the year $160,000.00 were 
spent in rebuilding the old infirmary and in adding fur- 
nishings. The superintendant's report is full of good 
advice and encouragement. 

"Masonic Homes should and do give a sense of 
security. Freedom from tvorry about the costs of 
living, sickness, hospitalization, etc. is a tremendous 
spiritual uplift for tJiose of inadequate resources. The 
destruction of morale from insecurity can not be fully 
appreciated by those icJio have not experienced it. It is 
indeed inspiring to see this load lifted from the minds of 
so manv as they enter the Home and try to tell us what 
it means to them." 

The Grand Master's busy year included six layings 
of cornerstones, four dedications, one institution, one con- 
stitution and several visits locally and outside Kansas. 
He issued some 127 dispensations for various reasons. 

Some of the decisions made by the Grand Master 
are of interest to Ontario ISIasons. 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

(i) A brother working for a wholesale liquor 
company as a 'public relations' man would violate a 
by-law. 

(2) A Lx>dge could not engage in fund raising 
projects involving the solicitation of funds from non- 
Masons even though merchandise or services were being 

sold. 

(3) A Masonic Lodge should not hold a function 
sponsored by the Lodge on Sunday. 

Earl R. Brown was elected and installed as Grand 
Master. 

The Proceedings include a biography sketch of M.W. 
Bro. R. L. Becker, several pages devoted to Necrology, 
and about forty-seven pages of reviews of the Proceed- 
ings of other Grand Lodges, edited by Floyd S. Ecord, 
P.G.M. Almost a page is given to Ontario, 1956-57, 
including quotations from the address of M.W. Bro. Wm. 
L. Wright. 



KENTUCKY— 1957 

157th Annual Communication — October 15-17. 

Grand blaster— ^I.W. Bro John Wesley Hall. 

Lodges, 470. Membership, 99,598. Gain, 1,228. 

The Proceedings open with an interesting biograph- 
ical sketch of the Grand Master, who is a member of the 
transportation department of the Chesapeake and Ohio 
Railway Company with headquarters at Martin, Kentucky. 
He has been interested in Masonry since 1939. While 
serving as Grand Master he travelled some 53,000 miles. 

At this Annual Communication twenty-two Past 
Grand Masters were present, dating back to 1913. 



The Grand blaster's address was filled with much 
iformation and good advice. He was deeply impressed 
rith the permanence of Freemasonry. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 47 

"During these turmiltous times through which we 
are passing, many people are predicting that the old order 
of things zvill be done aivay zvith and a neiu one ushered 
in. This may be true concerning many institutions and 
governments not founded on bedrock. Such is not true 
of Masonry. The evil influence of the ignorant and the 
suspicions of those who do not understand our ideals 
have been finable to destroy its sacred treasures of science, 
philosophy and history, deposited in the minds and hearts 
of true men. True faith in God leads to love of human- 
ity and the brotherhood of man. Surely an Order 
founded itpon the foregoing lofty principles and stately 
ideals is like a house builded securely upon a rock. It 
cannot be swept azvay or destroyed, but zvill live forever 
in the hearts of free men in a free America." 

Kentucky supports two homes, Masonic Widows and 
Orphans' Home, and Old Mason's Home. The Boards 
of Directors were commended for their excellent services. 

The Grand Master attended the Washington Con- 
ference of Grand Masters and responded to the address 
of welcome. From an excellent oration the following 
paragraph is selected, — 

"Great tasks and great problems lie ahead of the 
Freemasons of the zvorld. To enable us to solve these 
great tasks and great problems, may the Grand Archi- 
tect of the Universe take us zvithin His arms of protection 
and shield and defend us from those zvho zvould com- 
promise our beloved fraternity. May zve be bound 
together zvith three-fold cords of brotherly love, enabling 
tis by the memories of our fraternity's glorious past to 
respond to the call of the present and face the future 
with courage and devotion to our ancient a)id honorable 
institution.'' 

The Grand Master made many visitations, conduct- 
ed nine dedications personally and seven by proxy, laid 
four corner-stones, and dealt with many requests for 
dedication and information. 

His opinion on raffles, lotteries, etc., seems to be 
sound ]\Iasonic reasoning. 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"It is my opinion that the use of_ gambling devices 
of any nature, such as raffles, lotteries, punch boards, 
paddle wheels, spinning jenneys, and games of chance of 
whatsoever nature, for the purpose of obtaining money, 
or anything of value, and/ or the giving azvay of chances 
on prizes, is gambling and a violation of the laws of the 
State, and is therefore a Masonic offense." 

The Grand Treasurer's report showed $968,122.74 
available funds and expenditures of $572,148.41. 

The Grand Secretary reported the awarding of 243 
Fift3--Year Masonic Service Buttons and Gold Life Mem- 
bership Cards. 

William O. Ware, a banker was elected and installed 
as Grand Master for the ensuing Masonic year by his 
father who had served as Grand Alaster in 191 3. 

Charles A. Keith, P.G.M., presented the report of 
the Committee on Fraternal Correspondence, in which 
about one page is devoted to each Grand Jurisdiction ; He 
indicates that there are 5,074,092 Masons in the World, 
an increase of 49,335 for the year. For Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario, comments are made on the address 
of the Grand Master, on reports of the Grand Treasurer 
and the Grand Secretary, and on fraternal reviews. 



LOUISIANA— 1958 

147th Annual Communication — February 3-4. 

Grand Master — Elmer I. Gibson. 

Lodges, 269. Membership, 50,298. Gain, 784. 

The Annual Reports of the Officers of the Grand 
Lodge of the State of Louisiana for the year ending 
December 31, 1957, and the Minutes of the First and 
Second Days of the Annual Communication were circula- 
ted about the middle of February. 

The opening prayer by Bro. Rev. R. Oliphant, Grand 
Chaplain set the tone and spirit of the Communication in 
these words, — 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 49 

"As zve have entered into the labours of other wen, 
may zve so live and serve that others may enjoy the fruitsf\ 
of onr labor. Keep tis from being content zvith the 
merely good and lead us to the better. Help us to for- 
give one another's faults and share in hearing the bur- 
dens as zvell as the opportunities of our fellozuship. By 
the clarify of our thoughts, by the cJwrity of our judg- 
ments, by the breadth of our sympathies, by the patience 
of our spirits, may zve shozv forth Thy spirit and fill our 
days zvith useful service." 

Among" the Grand Representatives, Bro. Adam 
Mehn, New Orleans, answered the roll call for the Grand 
Lodge of Canada. 

The Grand Lodge responded to the great disaster by 
Hurricane Audrey in the Cameron area on June 27th, 
1957, by raising over $50,500. through its IMasonic Relief 
Committee. 

The Grand Master made 54 visits to Lodges, five to 
other bodies and 19 to special events. The Harrisburg 
Open Air IMeeting (Fort Hill) has been conducted since 
1949 with an average attendance of over 1,000 for the 
eleven meetings. 

M.W. Bro. Gibson referred with pride to the 
Masonic Home for children which had 51 residents. 
During the year contributions of over $74,000.00 were 
solicited for a new Boys' Cottage for older boys. Four 
Lodges were constituted, three cornerstones were laid, 
and five Lodge Halls were dedicated. The Grand Mas- 
ter dealt with many requests, dispensations and by-laws 
and issued six rulings, mostly of local interest. The 
charter of one Lodge was arrested. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence recom- 
mended recognition of Gran Logia De La Republica 
Dominicana, and Grand Lodge of Japan, but deferred 
the request of Grande Loja Desanta Catarina and Gran 
Logia Occidental De Colombia, at Cali. 

The Committee on ]\Lisonic Education recommends 
a wider use of the booklets prepared and distributed three 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

years ago. It urged all Lodges to take part in American 
Education Week in November, to encourage the teachers 
of the Public Schools in emphasis on democracy. 

An oration was delivered by W. Bro. J. Y. Sanders, 
P.M., On "The Foundations are being Destroyed, what 
are the Righteous going to do about it?" It was a force- 
ful pronouncement of liberty, freedom and patriotism. 

J. Benjamin Higginbotham of Baton Rouge was 
elected and istalled as Grand Master. 



MAINE— 1958 

139th Annual Communication — May 6-8. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Aubrey L. Burbank. 

Lodges, 208. Membership, 47,894. Gain, 270. 

Two Special Communications of the M.W. Grand 
Lodge of Maine for the dedication of temples are 
recorded. 

Among the distinguished guests at the Annual As- 
sembly were M.W, Bro. Harry L. Alartyn, Grand Master, 
and V.W. Bro. Chfford E. Hough, Past Grand Pur- 
suivant of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province 
of Ontario. 

The Grand blaster, in his address under Necrology, 
reported the death of 898 brethren during the Masonic 
year, among whom were four Permanent Members. He 
was particularly pleased with the increased attention of 
Lodges to the educational programs, and with the increase 
in iMasters' and Wardens" Associations. 

Arrearages of $28,664.00 for two years or more 
caused the Grand Lodge some concern. Lodges were 
urged to make strenuous attempts to collect from the 
delinquent members. Comment was made on one Lodge 
which attempts to operate with an annual dues assessment 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

of only $2.00, on two Lodges at $2.50 and on 31 Lodges 
at $3.00, 

During the year five Centennial, and one Sesqui- 
Centennial, Celebrations were attended by the Grand 
Master, in addition to twenty-two of the District meetings. 
At the latter an effort is made to encourage the brethren 
to apply the practices of Masonry to the life of the 
twentieth century. The Grand Master was well pleased 
with the Lodge history program, and that of the ^lasonic 
Blood Bank. 

Maine has been discussing a proposed Masonic 
Home, but undue haste is being avoided. Lodge Secre- 
taries and Treasurers are supposed to be bonded by their 
Lodges, but some 15 are not, and 96 Lodges failed to 
report on the matter. 

The Grand blaster closed his address by quoting a 
poem entitled "My Creed"' by Bro. Edgar A. Guest. In 
the Proceedings this was followed by appendices listing 
meetings, visitations, dispensations, and amendments to 
Lodge By-laws. 

The Grand Treasurer reported the total receipts of 
Grand Lodge for the year at $43,656.82 and expenses at 
$37,304.16. The auditors placed the assets of the Grand 
Lodge at $812,758.12. 

The Grand Secretary had an excellent report to 
which several appendices were added. Veterans' ^ledals 
have been presented to about 262 members who have 
been in good standing for fifty years or more. 

The Grand Lecturer held some 17 schools for in- 
struction. They Avere attended by 1,109 Masons from 
193 Constituent Lodges, including some 809 officers or 
65.4%. He concluded his report by quoting from "The 
blaster Mason" edited by Joseph Fort Xewton. 

"Masonry was not invented ; it grezv. Today it un- 
folds its zvisc and good and beautiful truth in three noble 
and impressive degrees, and no man can take them to 
heart and not be enoblcd and enriched by their dignity 
and beauty. 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

'The first la\s emphasis upon that fundamental 
righteousness zcithout which a man is not a man, but a 
medley of ivarring passions — that purification of heart 
ivkich is the basis alike of life and religion. The second 
lays stress upon the culture of the mind, the training 
of its faculties in the quest of knozdedge, without which 
a man remains a child. The third seeks to initiate us, 
symbolically, into the eternal life, making us victors over 
death before it arrives. 

"The First is the Degree of Youth, the Second the 
Degree of Manhood, the Third the consolation and con- 
quest of Old Age, when the evening shadows fall and the 
Eternal World and its unknozvn adventures drazv near." 

The report on Correspondence is prepared by Ralph 
J. Pollard, P.G.M., and occupies about 74 pages, includ- 
ing a page and one-half for Canada in Ontario. 
Considerable space is devoted to the visits and addresses 
of M.W. Bro. William L. Wright. 



MANITOBA— 1958 

83rd Annual Communication — June 4-5. 

Grand blaster — ]\IA\'. Bro. David Rothstein. 

Lodges, 118. ^lembership, 16,241. Gain, 166, 

A short biography of the Grand Master serves as 
an introduction to the Proceedings of 1957-58. AI.W. 
Bro. Rothstein has a chain of theatres in Manitoba and 
Saskatchewan and in this business he has secured wide 
recognition. During the war he served with the Canadian 
army at home and abroad. He brought to the office of 
Grand Master vigor, enthusiasm and a deep love of the 
Craft. 

Two Special Communications were held during the 
year. Three Pillars Lodge (U.D) was duly constituted 
and consecrated on September 3, 1957; and the corner- 
stone of \lrden Agricultural and Recreational Centre was 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 53 

laid on July 26, 1957. At the latter ceremony W. Bro. 
N. Forsyth delivered a brief historical oration. 

Approximately 114 Lodges were represented at the 
83rd Annual Communication. R.W. Bro. Charles R. 
Newcombe, Grand Chaplain, delivered the invocation. 
The nominations were announced, and later the Grand 
'Lodge Officers, including, R.W, Bro. W. Albert Prugh 
the newly elected Grand Master, were installed and 
invested. 

Most of the business of Grand Lodge is conducted 
or approved by the Board of General Purposes. Nine 
meetings were he'd during the year, and R.W. Bro. 
W. A. Prugh, Deputy Grand Master, presented an 
interesting report of the year's tranactions. 

Two Lodges under dispensation were approved and 
placed on the Register of Grand Lodge. The Grand 
Secretary's report includes such items as Suspensions, 
Dispensations, Expulsions, Amendments to By-laws, 
Arrears of dues, Charities, and Appointments. On Dec. 
31st, 1957, there were 1,755 members in arrears to the 
extent of $19,547.06, which was a decrease from the 
previous year. The Secretary reported briefly on 
Conferences, District Meetings and Official Visits he 
had attended. 

The Grand Treasurer reported surplus assets of 
over $24,000.00 ; the Income for the year being $27,522.44 
and the expenditures $28,555.13, thus leaving a slight 
deficit. The Benevolent Endowment Fund showed a 
surplus of $340,325.91, and the Beneficiary Fund showed 
some $57,906.51 after expenses had been met. The 
payments from this fund totalled $12,089.50. The total 
surplus in all funds was $465,417.48. 

Among the guests introduced at the evening session 
was R.W. Bro. J. Wellington Smith, P.G.S.W., Grand 
Lodge of Canada (Ontario). 

The Committee on Fraternal Dead saluted departed 
brethren because "they are symbols of ourselves'', "'as 
friends and Brethren", and finally as "Children of the 
Great Architect of the Universe". 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master's address followed his Itineray 
of visits, and listed the recipients of some 58 fifty-year 
medals. One sixty-year bar was presented. In concluding 
his address, he referred to the preservation and mainten- 
ance of individual integrity and quoted a poem by Edgar 
Guest, following which he said, — 

'^Ycs brethren, you and I as individuals are the KEY. 
We can lock the door on human liberties and fall behind 
an iron curtain of hate and sectionalism, or we can open 
the doors to all that Freemasonry teaches. By being 
Masons, not only in name, BUT IN DEED, can we as 
individual meet the responsibilities of citizenship." 

The Committee on the Condition of Masonry reluct- 
antly admitted that attendance at Lodge meetings was not 
good. Some good advice is indicated an this paragraph. 

"Good results can be obtained and much improve- 
ment achieved through sincere, consistent and intelligent 
effort on the part of Masters and their Officers and co- 
workers, to raise still higher the standards of Masonic 
Education in our Lodges. If they are diligent, they can 
encourage and stimulate the social side of the activities 
by making the Lodge and its affairs really attractive." 

The Grand Historian, j\I.W. Bro. William Douglas, 
delivered an address on "Charles Curtis, the First Free- 
mason to settle in Alanitoba." 

At a lancheon, W. Bro. John D. Cunningham of the 
Masonic Service Association gave a fine address on 
"Some Misconceptions about Freemasonry". This was 
a powerful refutation of the several prevalent criticisms 
usually given by the adversaries of Freemasonry. 

The Grand Qiaplain, R.W. Bro. C. R. Newcombe, 
delivered an interesting philosophical and historical ex- 
planation of the raising of the candidate. 

The proceedings contain reports for the various 

District Deputy Grand Masters, pages dedicated to the 

Fraternal Dead, and various statistics. There are no 
Fraternal Reviews.

MARYLAND— 1958 

Communications — ]\Iay 30 and November 18-19. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Charles H. Cover. 

Lodges, 128. Membership, 47,953. Gain, 480. 

The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Maryland 
open with a brief biography of Bro. A. Wayne Reed, who 
was elected Grand blaster at the Annual Communication. 
Then followed the records of a special Communication 
for the dedication of the Masonic Temple at Dundalk. 

The Semi-Annual Communication was held in 
Baltimore on May 30, 1958, and opened by the Deputy 
Grand Master who welcomed M.W. Bro. Charles H. 
Cover, the Grand Master. 

The Grand Master commented on the harmony, 
progress and prosperity of Ivlasonry in Maryland, and, 
assisted by the Grand Chaplain, paid tribute to the 
Fraternal Dead. Some 76 visitations are listed with 
special reference to a few occasions. In referring to 
Masonic Clubs the Grand IMaster had this to say, — 

"Again, if these organisations are manned by Masons 
of Good intent, are well managed and directed tozvard 
proper end, the groivth in number has no particular 
significance. Where such is not the case, serious 
trouble, complain, ridicule of the Craft, or other incidents 
may ensue. The Officers of such a Club change at 
frequent inten'als, and zvith such change too often the 
course of management. Our concern is not only the 
foregoing, but also the conviction that a rapid growth in 
number of Clubs or interest therein spells further 
deterioration of Lodge attendance." 

Mention was made of the solicitation of subordinate 
Lodges for contributions to various civic charitable or 
religious enterprises. The Grand Master reconfirmed a 
previous ruling, that, excepting those concerned with local 
charities within the province of the subordinate Lodges, 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

such Lodges were not to contribute to unauthorized 
solicitations without the approval of the Grand Master 

The Grand Secretary's report is quite detailed and 
mentions $547,999.50 paid over to the Grand Treasurer. 
The latter reported the Homes Endowment Fund in- 
vestments of a market value of $2,755,889.30, 

A'isitors to the Museum numbered 3,037, and some 
160 persons attended 4 lectures given under Museum 
auspices. The list of donations for the year covers 
some five pages. 

The reports of the Grand Lecturer and District 
Grand Lecturers indicate commendable activity in 
]\Iasonic Instruction and Education. 

The Communication in November was the 172nd 
Annual. The tenor of the meeting was similar to the 
previous semi-annual communication but reports and 
speeches were generally more detailed. 

]\LW. Bro. A. Wayne Reed was elected and installed 
as Grand Master. 



MASSACHUSETTS— 1957 

Quarterly Communications, Eight Special Communic- 
ations, and the Stated Communication of December 27. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Andrew G. Jenkins. 

Lodges, 340. Membership, 132,822. Gain, 1,917. 

Of the 340 active Lodges in this Grand Jurisdiction, 
328 are in Massachusetts, 7 in the Canal Zone, three in 
Chile and one in Japan. The condition of Masonry is 
satisfactory although there were over one hundred 
initiations fewer than in 1956. 

The Board of Alasonic Relief met at the Masonic 
Home in Charlton. Under its supervision are the 
Masonic Home, the Masonic Hospital and General Char- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

ities. The total expenditures for Benevolent Purposes 
were $430,593.59, and represented a daily per capita 
cost of $4.73 for the Home and $11.25 for the hospital. 
There were 109 residents in the Home and 29 patients 
in the hospital at the end of August, 1957. The Balance 
Sheets of Grand Lodge list Assets of $8,555,080.62. 

Eight Special Communications of Grand Lodge were 
held, five being celebrations of looth anniversaries. 
Interesting histories of these Lodges are included in the 
Proceedings. 

The Stated Communication had a memorial service 
for ]\LW. Bro. Melvin j\L Johnson conducted by ivLW. 
and Rev. Thos. S. Roy, D.D. 

]\L\\'. Bro. Andrew G. Jenkins was re-elected and 
installed as Grand Master. 

The speakers at the Feast were R. \\'. Leverett 
Saltonstall, Senior Senator from ^Massachusetts ; the 
Grand Master ; R.W. Paul L. Perkins, Deputy Grand 
Master ; JNLW. Nathan Turk, Grand Master of New York ; 
111. George E. Bushnell, 33°, Sovereign Grand Com- 
mander of the Northern Jurisdiction, A.A.S.R. of the 
United States, and Rt. Em. E. Robert Chable, Grand 
Prelate, Knights Templar. 

The latter was the principal speaker, who delivered 
a very interesting address on, — "What is the philosophy 
of Freemasonry?'' As some of the philosophies of lite 
he mentioned, power, pleasure, withdrawal, and material- 
ism. None of these satisfied the Mason whose basic 
philosophy is love. 

MEXICO (YORK)— 1958 

98th Annual Communication — March 15. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Simon Utay. 

Lodges, 9. Memership, 634. Net Loss, 3. 

The introduction to the proceedings consists of "A 
Brief History of York Rite Masonry in Mexico''. Free- 
masonry is said to have been introduced into the country 



B9 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

in 1806, and in 1824 a York Rite Grand Lodge, composed 
of five Constituent Lodge, was granted a charter from 
the Grand Lodge of New York and known as "Gran 
Logia Nacional Mexicana". Of the five Lodges, only 
one, "Union Fraternal" was able to survive. 

Union Fraternal really consisted of four Lodges, 
English, French, German, Spanish, working under one 
charter in i860 under James C, Lohse as Master. In 
1865 the master subdivided "La Union Fraternal" into 
three Lodges which constituted themselves in "Grand 
Lodge Valle de Mexico" with Bro. Lohse as Grand 
Master, 

Since then various changes have occurred and 
various Grand Bodies have apparently directed Masonic 
affairs, several of them operating simultaneously. How- 
ever in 191 1 the regular Grand Lodge adopted the name 
"York Grand Lodge of Mexico", F. and A.M. with 
English as the official language. 

The proceedings of the York Grand Lodge of 
Mexico are brief including only some 50 pages. The 
Grand Master reported on his year's work including 
a Special Communication called for the election of a new 
Secretary to replace R.W. Bro. Henry A. Robinson who 
had been called to his rest, M.W, Bro. Mino M, Covo 
was elected Grand Secretary. The Grand Master ap- 
pointed several Grand Representatives and made many 
official visits. regretted that he had been unable to 
attend the Conference of Grand Masters in Washington. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended 
recognition of the Grand Lodge of China and of the 
Grand Lodge of Peru (Washington Street Temple), 

The Grand Master ruled, — 

"A Master Mason is hereby defined as a member 
mho has successfully passed the examination of the third 
degree and has been accorded a Diploma as a Master 
Mason/' 

The Committee on the Grand Master's address did 
not agree with this ruling of the Grand Master and 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

claimed that a brother became a Master Mason the 
moment he was "raised" in a just and lawfully constituted 
Lodge of 2\Iasons ; and specified that no subsequent ruHng 
or definition could invalidate his right to be received 
as a Master Mason. 

Grand Lodge sponsors a magazine called "York Rite 
Trestle Board" which is published five times each year. 
In September, 1958, issue there are articles on, — "Sur- 
vival", "The TetragTammaton", "Workers and Drones", 
"Light", Brotherly Love", "Why do Men become 
Masons ?" and other equally interesting Alasonic topics. 

The Grand Lecturer, M.W, Bro. Sidney Ulfelder, 
P.G.M., spoke on his impressions and erperiences of many 
years of IMasonic activity. This paragraph is significant. 

"Masonry has not outlived its usefulness, and more 
than ever in this day and time there is greater need for 
it. The aggressive infiltration of an atheistic 'Ism' 
should lead us to make greater efforts against tJiis evil. 
Look at those three candles on the Altar. I like to liken 
them to the three tenets of our institution. I like to 
think of those three great candles to lighten the way of 
those, who have been darkened by intolerance and selfish- 
ness and have been placed in their hands for brotherly 
love." 

The Grand Orator, M.W. Bro. A. H. Seabrook, 
P.G.M., deHvered an excellent address basing his oration 
on Faith, Hope and Charity. He quoted this stanza by 
Alfred Austin. 

''So long as Faith and Freedom reigns. 

And loyal Hope survives 
An gracious Charity remains. 

To leaven lozvly lives: 
While there is one untrodden tract 

For intellect or zcill, 
And men are free to think and act 

Life is tvorth lizwg still." 

Cantwell C. Brown was elected and installed as 
Grand Master.

MICHIGAN— 1958 

132nd, Annual Communication — May 27. 

Grand IMaster — M.W. Bro. Raymond M. Douglas. 

Lodges, 534 (2 U.D.) Membership, 176,533. Gain, 1,311. 

The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Michigan 
for the year 1958 have as a Frontispiece the picture of 
the newly-elected Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Joseph L. 
Hunter followed by a short resume of his Masonic and 
other octivities. A list of the newly elected Grand 
Lodge Officers and a page of their photographs follow. 

Among those in attendance was ]\LW. Bro. Morgan 
J. Smead, P.G.M., Grand Representative of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

The registered attendance was 1,136 including 473 
visitors, among whom were j\LW. Bro. Jos. A. Hearn 
and R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon of Ontario. Perhaps the 
most interesting introduction to Grand Lodge was that 
of Bro. Sanford H. Wescott, a Mason in his looth year 
and who is reported to be the eighth oldest living Master 
Mason in the world. His Masonic career extends be- 
yond 7S vears. He spoke briefly on "The End of the 
Road."^ ' 

Bro. W. Mackay Skillman, Judge of the Recorder's 
Court of the City of Detroit, welcomed Grand Lodge 
to the City and Bro. ]\Iorgan J. Smead, P.G.M., 
responded. 

The Grand Master's address, including a chron- 
ological report of his activities, occupies some 32 pages 
of the proceedings. He made 20 rulings and decisions, 
laid five corner-stones, dedicated nine temples, conducted 
one Constitution and Consecration, and installed the 
officers of the Lodge in Lansing. The Grand Master 
appointed 16 Grand Representatives, visited eight Frat- 
ernal Grand Jurisdictions and three other Grand Bodies 
in Michigan. He approved 100 waivers of Jurisdiction 



FEATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 61 

and refused i6. He was favourably impressed by the 
plans submitted for 9 new Temples. 

Contracts for improvements at the Masonic Home 
and Hospital amounted to approximately $375,000.00. 
Seven Centennials were celebrated and the Grand Secre- 
tary mailed some 2,023 buttons to 343 Lodges. These 
indicate 50 years or over in Masonic Service. The 
Grand ]\'Iaster closed his address with these words, — 

"Finally — as men and Masons, walk zvith God, hand 
in hand and by the light of the three lesser lights, behold 
the glory and beauty of that great light in Masonry, 
The Holy Bible, ivherein is told the story of universal 
love and brotherhood." 

A Committee submitted a "Service in lieu of the 
Graveside Ceremony — to be used at the option of the 
Worshipful Master, who may want to consider the 
wishes of the family as far as possible." Apparently 
many Grand Jurisdictions find the attendance at ^lasonic 
Funerals gradually diminishing, and Chapel Services 
the night before the funeral are generally preferred. 
The Masonic Service and Education Committee revised 
the "Services At The Grave" to suit the new procedure. 

Portions of the Procedings are devoted to "In 
Memoriam" and "Withdrawals, Suspensions, Expulsions 
and Restorations", Statistical Tables and Lists of Lodges 
and Officers. 



MINNESOTA— 1958 

105th Annual Communication — March 19-20. 

Grand Master — ]\LW. Bro. George E. Wilson. 

Lodges, 293. Membership, 69,375. Gain, 518. 

Four occasional communications of Grand Lodge 
were held for the laying of corner-stones and one for the 
consecration of a new Lodsfe. 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master visited many Lodges during the 
vear and reported a good attendance on these occasions. 
He noted that Lodges which have special programs or 
entertainment have the better attendance records. 

He emphasized the importance of charity in 
Masonry, and praised the service of the Minnesota 
Masonic Home. This institution is supported by an 
annual per capita tax and an assessment paid by each 
candidate who is raised. Hospital Visitation at Rochester, 
jMasonic Ser^dce Association Veteran's Visitation Pro- 
gram, and the Masonic Memorial Cancer Hospital were 
commended as worthy of support. 

The Grand Master attended seven conferences but 
was unable to go to the Inter-provincial Conference at 
Banff, Alta. 

He condemned any use of 'Mason', 'Masonic' or 
'Freemason' on any Masonic emblem as a part of a 
business or firm name, or on its cards, circulars, etc., 
as a violation of their Masonic Code. 

The records show over 311 Fifty-year Emblems, 23 
Dispensations, 24 Rulings, 26 By-laws approved, 60 
Visitations in Wisconsin and 15 journeys to other Grand 

Jurisdictions. 

This indicates a most active year for the Grand 
Lodge and its officers. 

The total receipts from all funds amounted to 
$627,528.49 of which almost 50% was for relief work. 
The total of all disbursements was $565,422.40. 

The Grand Orator, M.W. Bro. Carl E. Erickson, 
delivered an excellent and eloquent oration on world 
conditions, tendencies and Masonic tenets. 

The two following quotations will serve to illustrate 
some of his thoughts. 

"Fear and faith are tzvo of the most pozverfnl 
forces in the zvorld'. Today many are frightened. Some 
are bewildered and overwhelmed, mainly from ignorance 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 63 

because we do not spend enough time in thought and 
study in search of truth and zcisdom. Characterised by 
an absence of introspection and reluctance to be self- 
critical, too many of us look for an escape from the heavy 
uncertainties zvhich surround us. Our fears , bezvilder- 
inent and uncertainties find their roots in our preoccup- 
ation with the materialistic. 



"And we must lead exemplary lives because examples 
are the best and most lasting lectures; virtue the best 
example. He that hath done good deeds and set good 
precedents, in sincerity is happy. Time shall not out- 
live his zvorth. He lives truly after death, zvhose good 
deeds are his pillars of remembrance, and no day but adds 
some grains to his heap of glory. Good zvorks are seeds, 
that after sozving, return us a continual harvest; and the 
memory of noble actions is more enduring than monu- 
ments of marble." 

J. Miles Martin was elected and installed Grand 
Master for the ensuing vear. 



MISSISSIPPI— 1958 

140th Annual Communication — February 11-12. 

Grand Master — \\'. Bro. John T. Wilbanks. 

Lodges, 314. Membership, 50,147. Gain, 72;^. 

The Grand blaster was very appreciative of the 
support he had received both from his Masonic brethren 
and from his employer in Corinth. The section of 
his address on 'Necrology'' mentioned not only deceased 
Grand Lodge officers in Mississippi but recorded those 
in other Grand Jurisdictions in Canada and United States. 

He considered the address of ALW. Bro. William 
L. Wright on 'Masonry's Mandate For Today' as the 
highlight of the opening ceremonies of the Grand 
Master's Conference at Washington. 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

He made some i8o visits during his year in office. 
He referred to the Masonic Home for boys at Cokimbus 
and the one for girls at Meridian. The attendance at 
these two homes had gradually decreased to 22 children, 
and the one at Columbus was to be closed. It was 
recommended that the property of 234 acres be sold. 

The Grand ^Master visited the Eastern Star several 
times, the York Rite, the Scottish Rite Bodies, and the 
Shrine ; dedicated and constituted a new Lodge, and laid 
a corner-stone. 

On oMasonry and Americanism he said : — 

"'Maso)is li'cre in vanguard of those patriotic Amer- 
icans zvho established our forme of government, wrote 
its Constitution, and formulated the Bill of Rights. 
The principles and teachings of Masonry instilled in them 
the desire for personal and political freedom, civil and 
religions liberty, and a government of the people by the 
people, and for the people. Masonry is nozv ivhat it 
has always been — an institution formed upon brotherly 
love, respecting at all times the religious, political, and 
civil freedom of men everywhere." 

The report of the Fraternal Correspondent, Bro. C. 
C. Buchanan was interesting and informative. He 
advised against the recognition of the Grand Lodges of 
Santa Catarina, \'enezuela, Japan, San Paulo and Rio 
de Janeiro of Brazil, Guatemala. \'alle de Mexico, and 
Egypt. Among the problems confronting most Grand 
Jurisdictions he mentioned the lack of Masonic Education, 
failure of subordinate Lodges to raise fees, poor attend- 
ance at meetings and 'horse-play' in conferring some 
degrees. In another portion of the Proceedings he 
quoted extensively from addresses of Masonic speakers 
at the annual meetings of many Jurisdictions. 

Curtis Edward Morphis, an employee of the Illinois 
.Central Railroad, was elected and installed as Grand 
Master. He has been interested in Masonrv since 
May, 1924.

MISSOURI— 1958 

137th Annual Communication — September 30 - October i. 

Grand blaster — :\I.W. Bro. Frank P. Briggs. 

Lodges, 593. Membership, 124,232. Loss, 165. 

The Proceedings commence with a photograph of 
the Grand Master followed by a brief biographical sketch 
which refers to him in these words. 

"Dr. Samuel Johnson once said of the lovable Oliver 
Goldsmith, 'He touched nothing that he did not adorn.' 
Freemasons of Missouri knozv that the same sentiment 
applies equally as well to their Grand Master zvho so 
skillfidly directed all of their affairs during 1957 and 
1958." " 

The Grand Master's address covers some 15 pages, 
dealing with the state of the Craft which shows excellent 
spirit and fine fellowship, with the visits of the Grand 
Master, the Masonic Home, the Free Public Schools, 
laying cornerstones, dispensations and decisions. L'nder 
"Charity" several incidents of local assistance are record- 
ed and illustrate the real spirit of brotherly love and 
relief. 

The Grand Secretary reports the awarding of some 
412 buttons to Masons of fifty years and over. The 
financial statement showed receipts of $122,451.27, and 
expenditures of $117,829.53 for general purposes. The 
Per Capita receipts for the Masonic year were $234,268.29. 
The Treasurer's report included references to cash, bonds 
and other investments amounting to over $350,000.00. 

On June 30, 1958, there were 310 members in the 
Masonic Home and 126 patients in the hospital. In the 
Out-Patient Department 2,016 patients were seen by 
the Doctor and 7,811 were treated in clinic. 

The Grand Lecturer. RW. Bro. Freelon K. Hadlev 
visited every district in the State at least once. His 
chief criticism was that some Lodges were using un- 
authorized rituals and other books.

M.W. Bro. Ray V. Denslow heads the Commi'ttee 
on the Recognition of Foreign Grand Lodges and also 
deals with Fraternal Correspondence in a section called 
"The Masonic World". He believes that some Grand 
Lodges are not sufficiently liberal in their recognition of 
other Grand Jurisdictions. 

The Committee on Masonic Education sent out 
1 1, GOO copies of "The Freemason" in June. Sufficient 
cards were returned to assure a mailing list of 8,000 in 
September. 

"The IMasonic World" occupies some 95 pages and 
is a fine reviiew of the Masonic Fraternity. Many 
general questions are discussed, and individual Grand 
Jurisdictions are given some space. Canada is given 
one page of which Ontario receives one-half, including 
references to M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright's address. 

Robert L. Aronson was elected and installed as 
Grand Master.

service of a Past Grand Master, and the consolidation of 
two Lodges. Grand Lodge was welcomed to Billings, 
Montana, by Mayor Earl Knight who commended his 
city to the brethren. The response was given by the 
Deputy Grand Master. 

Among the distinguished visitors was M.W. Bro.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 67 

Grand Master Myron E. Bean paid fitting tribute 
to some 479 Masons who had been summond to cross 
the Great Divide during- his year in office. He men- 
tioned visits in his own and other Grand Jurisdictions, all 
of which were well attended. His work included several 
installations : District Meetings ; the awarding of many 
Fifty-year Certificates and Veteran's Badges; the ap- 
pointment and approval of Grand Representatives ; issuing 
of several dispensations ; and decisions of many problems. 

One of his decisions was that he could not issue a 
dispensation for a Lodge to meet and confer a third 
degree on Sunday, as this is specifically prohibited in 
their code of statutes. No regular or special meetings 
are held on Sundays in Ontario. 

Near the end of his address the Grand Master of- 
fered this sound advice. 

"Be Spiritually minded, be Community minded, and 
be politically minded to this extent that every good 
citizen exercises the right of casting his ballot. The 
person for whom you cast your ballot has the dignity, 
important thing, by Brethren, is zvhether or not the 
important thing is not the political party. The important 
thing my Brethren, is whether or not the person for 
whom you cast your ballot has the dignity, the integrity, 
the sincerity of purpose, the fortitude and courage to 
staand upon his own two feet against all kinds of 
temptations and conduct the affairs of his office, what- 
ever it may be, in a manner in which he could face the 
whole zvor'ld and be proud of his zvork. The candidate 
who meets these qualifications is entitled to your support." 

The Grand Treasurer reported total assets of 
$88,257.28, approximately half of which was in cash in 
the bank. 

The Grand Secretary gave a good account of his 
year's transactions. Like other Secretaries he experienced 
trouble in getting the required monthly returns from 
some Lodges. 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence refers 
to good relations with some 100 Grand Jurisdictions in 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the United States, the Dominion of Canada and other 
Grand Jurisdictions in various parts of the world. Forty- 
three pages are allotted Correspondence for 1958, and the 
impressions of the Committee were summarized in this 
quotation from the "Foreword" of their report. 

"The Grand Lodge Meetings of the past year which 
are before us for review show a high tide in the thinking 
and pride of Masons throughout the zvorld." 

The Grand Chaplain, Owen Arington, delivered a 
thoughtful address on "A Mason's Responsibility to the 
Youth of America". He stressed that Masons should 
become aware of existing situations, should give youth 
a pattern by living our precepts, should support studies 
and legislation designed to help youth, and should show 
interest in such youth organizations as DeMolay. 

^Montana has an excellent Masonic Home associated 
with a ranch. There are some 52 members (12 men and 
40 women) in the Home with an average age of 82.2 
years. Receipts in the General Fund for the year were 
$96,305.12, and the Disbursements were $77,459.10. 

M.W. Bro. James T. Harrison was elected and in- 
stalled as Grand Master for 1958-59. 



NEBRASKA— 1958

The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Nebraska 
commence with a brief biographical sketch of the Grand 
Master, who is employed as chief chemist of the Great 
Western Cugar Co. at Scottsbluff. He has had consider- 
able experience in Masonry and is a member of the 
Presbyterian Church. 

The Grand Master laid three cornerstones and con- 
ducted two dedications. Among the benevolent enter- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 69 

prises approved by Grand Lodge are the Nebraska Mas- 
onic Home at Plattsmouth, the Omaha Home for Boys, 
and The Masonic Eastern Star Home for Children. He 
made some 2>7 ^lasonic visits in Nebraska and six to 
other Grand Jurisdictions. 

Some of the decisions of the Grand blaster wert 
quite interesting. He ruled that a petitioner living in 
a trailer-home and working out of the jurisdiction of the 
Lodge was ineligible as he had no fixed residence. He 
also ruled that a petitioner with a wooden leg was in- 
eligible. From the latter and other rulings it seems 
evident that Nebraska requires ability for a strict con- 
formance with the requirements of a whole and healthy 
body. 

The Grand Secretary reported that all Lodges had 
made complete returns. During the year one Lodge 
surrendered its charter and books. The records show 
that 138 Fifty-year buttons were presented. The fin- 
ancial reports show the total value of assets, including 
the Masonic Home, at $1,440,752.43, of which $828,260.93 
represent The Endowment and Bequest Fund. 

W. Bro. Raymond C. Cook, the Grand Custodian, 
submitted an interesting report. Many of his visits and 
those of his Assistant Custodian showed the effects of 
exceptionally bad weather. The so-called Central Schools 
were not quite so badly interfered with. Fifteen of 
these had 3,002 registrations. One hundred and seventy 
Lodges were invited to attend but thirty-one failed to do 
so. The work was described as outstanding. 

On the Condition of the Work the Grand Custodian 
had this to say, — 

"The steady annual increase in the number of 
certified lodges and individuals is encouraging. The 
steady grozi'th and spread of uniformity in our zvork; 
the evident desire to knozv and to put into practice the 
approved zcork and ceremonies of the Grand Lodge is 
tremendously reassuring. 

"The universal acceptance of the dignity and rev- 
erence which zve teach should govern all sections_ and 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

parts of our work, has brought an imvard delight that 
prevades the soul of every earnest and sincere brother." 

W. Bro. Howard J. Hunter presented the report of 
his committee on Masonic Education, and noted that the 
four area meetings were well attended. Progress in 
getting Lvodge Officers to see the necessity of doing some- 
thing besides degree work is reported. The distribution 
of last year's "lOO Questions about Freemasonry" has 
been continued and more Lodges are using them. Service 
to the brethren appears to be the motto of the Committee. 

John E, Beaver was elected as Grand Master. 

The Special Committee on Grand Lodge Business 
Affairs presented a five-page report which reviewed the 
structure and functioning of various Grand Lodge Spend- 
ing bodies. Various recommendations and rulings were 
implemented, and regulations on Grand Lodge Finances 
were proposed and put into effect by the Committee. 
Expenses to be met and the methods of payment were 
fully set forth. These regulations occupy some 14 
sections and cover three and one-half pages in the Pro- 
ceedings. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations reported that 
Tasmania and Switzerland have accepted overtures made 
to them. During the year applications for recognition 
came from Gran Logia de Guatemala and from Gran 
Logia Occidental de Colombia. The Committee dis- 
cussed various matters concerning the Grand Lodge of 
China, Grand Lodge of Japan, Grand Lodge of the Philip- 
pines, various Grand Lodges in Brazil, Grand Lodge of 
Egypt and some Grand Lodges in Mexico. 

The Committee appointed to investigate the system 
of Distnict Deputy Grand Masters reported against its 
adoption.

Grand Lodg-e of Canada, in the Province of Ontario, is 
recorded. R.W. Bro. A. C. Lemmon, our Grand Rep- 
resentative near the Grand Lodge of New Brunswick is 
the Grand Secretary. The Roll Call revealed that eight 
'Lodges were not represented at the Communication. 

A Service of Thanksgiving- was conducted by the 
Grand Chaplain, V.W. Bro. Rev. D. C. McKenzie, who 
preached on the topic "Labourers together with God." 
He mentioned man as the Partner of God or the Fellow 

Craftsman. He said, — 

"In Masonry zve are laborers together with God. 
We are not all operative masons, hut as speculative 
Masons we are building a civilization. We are to make 
this structure a temple unto our God. That is the only 
proper viezv that zve can take of our civilization, that 
it be a temple unto God." 

The Grand Chaplain suggested four tests to which 
all buildings should be subjected, — education, freedom, 
brotherly love, and faith. 

The Grand Master referred feelingly to several 
prominent Masons who had died during the year in- 
cluding Robert David Magee, who had been the Grand 
Secretary. He referred to the late Secretary in these 
words of Bryant, — 

"Thou'rt gone: the abyss of heaven 
Hath szvallowed up thy foryn; yet in my heart 
Deeply hath sunk the lesson thou hast given. 
And shall not soon deport." 

The Grand Master was highly appreciative of the 
opportunities he had had for visitations in and out of 
his Grand Jurisdiction. Near the conclusion of his 
address he used these paragraphs: 

"Frecmasoiiry's foundations are deep, the stones 
are true, it is builded zvell. Is there a nation intact today 
that has lived since the time of the building of King 
Solomon's temple? Not one. All have been szvept 
away in the constantly rising tides of human avarice. 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

passion and greed. Yet, Masonry stands more firmly 
today than ever before. Why is that so? 

"The answer is simple, brethren. The Masonry 
ive practice ivas erected according to the rules and 
designs laid down by the Supreme Architect of the 
Universe in the Book of Life. That book is our Trestle 
Board. Can Masonry be any more than this?" 

The Grand Treasurer's Report showed Receipts 
of $20,329.11 and Expenditures of $9,706.37. The 
Fund of Benevolence records receipts of $27,933.43, and 
grants for the year of $5,433.00. The assets are 
$110,603.92 of which $110,000.00 are in Bonds, 

The Educational Committee reported that the Grand 
Secretary had distributed 95 copies of information and 
of the booklet "More Light on Freemasonry". 

The Committee on Relations with Foreign Grand 
Lodges reported 24 Grand Lodges as worthy of recog- 
nition, three to be held pending receipt of more informa- 
tion, and five to be denied favourable consideration. 

The Grand Master was elected and installed for 
another year.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 73 

Grand Lodge who had passed on, and also to R.W. 
Bro. David ^I. McFarlane, M.G.E., the deceased District 
Grand Master of Newfoundland of the Grand Lodge of 
Scotland. 

R.W. Bro. Williams presented a complete semi- 
annual report recording some loi occasions on which 
he had transacted some IMasonic activity. From Nov- 
ember, 1957, to April, 1958, the District Grand Master 
recorded 15 busy occasions. He reported that many 
valuable papers were written by senior members of the 
Craft for the Biennial and District Conference. 

Business is conducted by the Board of General 
Purposes and by the Board of Benevolence both of which 
submit excellent reports. The President of the Board 
of General Purposes spoke highly of the Third Biennial 
Conference of Lodges in September under the chairman- 
ship of W. Bro. H. D. Macgillivray, ALB.E.. 

The Board of Benevolence reported an increase in 
funds of $1,719.78 giving it a total of $5,302.14 now 
at its disposal. Four Lodges failed to contribute to 
benevolent funds. The Board hopes to reach an annual 
objective of $10,000.00 from personal contributions. 

The Grand Treasurer reported receipts and balances 
for the year at $5,127.49. 

The proceedings end with appendices giving the 
■Annual Return of Work, Annual Alembership Return, 
Obituary, Officers and a list of various past Grand 
Officers.

different Lodges portrayed the Entered Apprentice, 
Fellovvcraft and Master Mason Degrees respectively. 
Sixty-eight Lodges were represented. 

The Board of Trustees of the Masonic Home held 
their annual meeting at the same time. Total available 
monies for the year were $115,513.54 of which some 
$94,525.00 were expendable. The investments and cash 
available for the support of the Home are $1,193,011.32. 
The number of residents in the Home was 44 composed 
of 21 men and 23 women. 

During the year Grand Lodge held Lodges of In- 
struction in each of eight districts. The average attend- 
ance of Officers of Lodges was 66.74%. The Grand 
Master was present on several occasions and gave an 
address on "Landmarks". 

During his year he attended 21 Lodges and 15 other 
meetings in New Hampshire, and 13 in other jurisdic- 
tions. He mentioned with pleasure his visit to Ontario. 
He recorded some 32 Fifty-year Medals which had been 
presented by the Grand Lodge and 13 were presented by 
other Grand Jurisdictions. He mentioned a large number 
of courtesy degrees exemplified by New Hampshire for 
other Jurisdictions and vice versa, and noted many dis- 
pensations which were granted. 

The Grand Secretary reported balances in various 
funds totalling $131,293.44, including $71,970.04 in the 
Charity Fund and $20,084.54 in the War Relief Fund. 

The Committee on Fraternal Recognition recom- 
mended approval of the Grand Lodge of Venezuela and 
of Gran Logia Occidental de Colombia, and that Japan 
be deferred. 

The Grand Master was elected and installed for a 
second term. 

Fraternal Correspondence is under a Committee, 
chaired by the Grand Secretary, Harold O. Cady, and 
occupies some 193 pages. Each Grand Jurisdiction of 
Canada is treated liberally, and some four pages are 
devoted to Ontario. Quotations on Masonic Education 
and on the Masonic Funeral Service from the address of 
M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright are included.

Lodges, 283. Membership, 107,493. Gain, 907. 

Some 54 pages at the beginning of the Proceedings 
of the Free and Accepted IMasons for the State of New 
Jersey are reports of Emergent Communications such as 
laying cornerstones and dedications. Excellent photo- 
graphs of new temples are included. 

The Annual Communication was held in Atlantic 
City with all' Lodges represented. Among the Grand 
Representatives, M.W. Bro. Adrien B. Hommell answered 
the roll call for Canada in Ontario, and later presented 
our Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Harry L. Alartyn who 
rephed to the address of welcome to the distinguished 
visitors. 

The Grand Master was presented with and used a 
gavel made from the timbers of the building in v/hich 
Grand Lodge held its first meeting. In his address 
M.W. Bro. Jensen expressed appreciation of the Past 
Grand Masters, the District Deputy Grand Masters and 
the Grand Representatives. During his year many 
dispensations were requested and most were granted. 
Petitions for four new Lodges were approved. Some 
150 visitations are listed in an appendix to the Grand 
Master's address, indicating a year of great activity. 
In his concluding remarks, this sentence is found. 

"The Craft in this Jurisdiction at the present time 
is prosperous, in peace and harmony, high in morals, and 
the spirit of enthusiasm and interest is manifest in all 
sections of this Grand Jurisdiction." 

The Grand Treasurer reported balances in some 
ten funds totalling $144,146.70. The receipts for the 
year were $505,031.61 of which some $232,781,00 were

dn the receipts was a levy of $3.00 per member for 
charitv and the working of Grand Lodge. 



76 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

During the first day's session nominations for Grand 
Lodge Officers were held. Bro. August C. Ullrich 
was the only nomination for Grand Master. He was 
later installed in his office. 

The Committee on Constitution and By-laws made 
an extensive study of "Code for Trials". The Com- 
mittee recommended that a "Committee for the Trial of 
Charges" be set up. About i8 pages of the Proceedings 
deal with regulations, evidence, counsel decisions, and 
punishments. It might be noted that "a brother guilty 
of any violation of the moral lazv is liable to charges/' 

The Grand Lodge Historian, R.W. Bro. Charles S. 
Elliott, related some interesting incidents on the ritual of 
the degrees. Martin Clare wrote the Entered Apprentice 
Degree in 171 7. The various rifts and disagreements 
are reported. Credit for the local ritual is given to 
M.W. Bro. Joseph Trimble who based it on the William 
Preston ritual as modified by Webb. 

The Committee on Necrology presented a thought- 
ful and well composed report referring specifically to 
several prominent Masons including M.W. Bro. Carl 
Claudy. 

The Committee on Library and Museum reported 
calls as continuing to be encouraging. 

The newly installed Grand Master addressed Grand 
Lodge outlining several questions and problems, — Masonic 
Public Relations, Manual for District Deputy Grand 
Masters, Grand Master's Day, and Proper Division 
and Grouping of Lodges into Districts.

consecrating and dedicating a new Lodge ; and one at 
Las Cruces for the funeral of Past Grand ^Master, M.W. 
Bro. Herbert B. Holt. 

The Committee on Credentials reported represent- 
atives from some 58 Chartered Lodges. These included 
Bro. Leslie A. Gillett, Sante Fe, Grand Representative of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada (Ontario). Eight dis- 
tinguished guests and 82 visitors were registered. 

Following the opening of Grand Lodge and the 
dntroduction of Visitors and Grand Representatives the 
Grand Master introduced W. Bro. Herman T. Decker 
as Grand Orator for the Communication. 

He spoke on "These Things We Hold", emphasiz- 
ing the fundamental tenets of the Order, — Brotherly Love, 
Relief and Truth. He described the first as the whole 
motivation of our association which should be exercised 
both in and out of Masonry. Emphasis was placed on 
charity as the practice of J\Iasonic priciples. Truth was 
admittedly difficult to define and its interpretation was 
a personal matter with each Mason. 

The Grand Master spoke enthusiastically about the 
condition of Freemasonry in these words, — 

"You can understand hozv gratified I am to say that 
I actually found Freemasonry to be much stronger, more 
enthusiastic and better informed than I expected. I am 
thrilled zvhen I think of the hundreds of enlightened and 
inspired members spread over the State. With fezi' ex- 
ceptions I found our Lodges and a good percentage of 
the members most dedicated to Freemasonry, interested 
in promoting the Fraternity, and active in carrying on 
their activities. Generally speaking, the ritualistic tcork 
is bci]ig conducted in a creditable manner." 

]\LW. Bro. Thiele paid tribute to 209 members who 
were called to the Grand Ix)dge Above; mentioned ap- 
pointments he had made ; reported on Special Communic- 
ations, Changes in By-laws, Dispensations granted and 
refused ; decisions made ; and finally presented several 
recommendations. 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

One can understand the approval or recommend- 
ations to raise Ldfe Membership from $200.00 to $300.00; 
certificate and pins for 25 and 50 year memberships ; 
and the appointment df a committee to investigate 
Liability Insurance ; but why should membership in the 
Alasonic Rehef Association of the Masonic Rehef As- 
sociation of the United States and Canada be dropped ! 

The Grand Treasurer's recapitulation of funds 
showed $311,060.56 at the disposal of Grand Lodge. 
Benevolent work comes largely under funds for the 
Masonic Home, Student Loan and New Jersey Relief. 
These funds amounted respectively to $153,183.40, 
$65.537-3i, and $24,953.39. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence decided 
to omit reviews from the Proceedings and to print them 
in the Freemason. The Foreword of some four and 
one-half pages has interesting comments on Attendance, 
DeMolay, Americanism and Public Schools, and other 
pertinent topics. 

Russell G. Bird, Sr., was elected and installed as 
Grand ]\laster.

The Unied Grand Lodge of New South Wales holds 
Quarterly and Special Communications, the first of the 
latter being on July 31st, 1957, at which the Grand Master 
and Deputy Grand Master were proclaimed and the 
other Grand Lodge Officers were invested. A Special 
Communication for the nomination of Grand Lodge 
Officers was held on June 9, 1958. 

The Grand Master gave a fine address in which he 
expressed his gratitude to his officers and members and 
eulogized the merits of Masonry. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 79 

"I feel that the Craft is growing stronger in its 
appreciation of the real meaning of Freeniaso)iry and 
that the Brethren in City and Country Lodges are seeking 
more and more help and enlightenment in the great 
teachings of Freemasonry. The first and foremost is a 
belief in God on Whom our faith is founded. There is 
n great need to-day for Masters of Lodges, and in fact 
all Master Masons, to assimilate the great principles of 
Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth to enable them to be 
qualified to extend help to our younger Brethren and 
■assist them to realise the great depth and strength and 
beauty of our teachings." 

Quarterly Communications were held in September, 
December, JNIarch and June, and at each the Grand 
Master reported on the activities of Grand Lodge during 
the previous three months. The chief operations of 
Grand Lodge are handled by the Board of General 
Purposes and the Board of Benevolence, each of which 
reports each quarter. 

At the September meeting there was a long and 
interesting debate on a motion that each Lodge should 
pay to Grand Lodge ten shillings per member for ten 
years, the monies to be deposited with the War Memorial 
Temple Building Fund. The motion was defeated by 
a narrow margin. Incidently the Grand Lodge of New 
South Wales collects fifteen shillings annually from each 
member. This sum is divided in four funds — Benevo- 
lence (3.0), Masonic Schools (7.0), Hospital (3.0), and 
General Purposes (2.0). 

The Grand Treasurer reported the Investments 
Trust Funds, Land & Buildings, and Cash of Grand 
Lodge to total £777,8o9-5s-8d in August 1957. 

The Grand Lispector of Workings is assisted by a 
large number of District Lispectors who make frequent 
visits to the Lodges. The Grand Inspector reports 
to Grand Lodge at each quarterly meeting. Generally 
the work appears to be well done and there is little cause 
for criticism. The following paragraph from the report 
on March 12, 1958, is a sample of the Inspector's satisfac- 
tion with progress. 



80 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"The Grand Master will he pleased to know that 
the reports concerning the work and progress of the new 
Lodges ivhich he consecrated, are very gratifying. The 
continued enthnsiasm and interest of the Brethren has 
well merited the confidence he placed in them in grant- 
ing their Charters." 

In March the appeal of a Past Master against the 
decision of the Board of General Purposes that he was 
guilty of an infraction of Masonic Law (desertion of his 
wife) was denied. 

The Proceedings contain reports of the Council of 
the William Thompson Masonic School of the Masonic 
Hospital Board, and the Foreign Correspondence Com- 
mittee. The latter has some 75 pages on Masonic 
Reviews, but the Grand Lodge of Canada is not 
mentioned. 

The Board of Benevolence expended some £11,418 
in grants during the year. This sum is in addition to 
costs of operating various institutions.

The Frontispiece in the Proceedings is the reproduc- 
tion of a photograph of the Grand Master, and is followed 
by a brief biographical sketch. 

The Grand Alaster conducted three Special Com- 
munications, — one for a Masonic Funeral and two for 
the laying of corner-stones. On the two latter occasions 
excellent orations were delivered. At the first, Bro. 
Blake M. Franklin based his remarks on "The Chief 
Cornerstone", following the ceremony at the First 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 81 

Baptist Church in Reno. The second 'laying' was for 
the Student Union Building, University of Nevada, at 
Reno. 

In the Grand Lodge of Canada the laying of corner- 
stones for buildings which are not ]\Iasonic purposes 
seems to be disappearing. It is gratifying to note that 
the procedure has not died out in all Grand Jurisdictions. 
The educational and spiritual values of the Craft are 
•worth emphasizing, whenever an opportunity is presented. 

The Grand Master interrupted his address in the 
section on Necrology to permit the Grand Qiaplain, Very 
Reverend Bro. John T. Ledger, to conduct a very im- 
pressive Memorial Service. On the resumption of his 
address, M.W. Bro. Knudson recorded the issuance of 
22 Dispensations and the refusal of three. He conducted 
15 Installations, and presented 19 Fifty-year Buttons. 
He lists some 29 official visits in Nevada, and received 
eight official invitations from other Grand Jurisdictions. 
The records show 47 special invitations to the Grand 
Master and 25 unofficial visits. The Grand Master was 
a busy man. 

The Grand Treasurer's report showed annual receipts 
of $10,918.13, and investments amounting to $25,500.00. 
The balance in the Charity Fund was $1,966.08, and there 
were no disbursements for benevolence during the year. 

The Committee on Legitimacy of Grand Lodges 
recommended that Nevada recognize the Grand Lodge of 
Japan and establish Masonic relations with it. 

Nevada's Code which prevented membership in more 
than one Lodge was repealed and a series of conditions 
adopted to permit multiple membership. 

The Grand Orator delivered a thoughtful address 
suggesting the application of ]\Iasonic principles to many 
problems of the day ; and was rather pessimistic about 
some school problems and the necessity of training for 
teenagers. 

Yale Williams was elected and installed as Grand 
Master for the ensuing vear. 



82 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

NEW ZEALAND— 1957 

68th Annual Communication — November 27. 

Grand ^Master — M.W. Bro. Edgar O. Faber. 

Lodges, 396. Membership, 44,777. Gain, 945. 

This Annual Communication was held in Rotorua 
and was well attended. After the opening of Grand 
Lodge, and confirmation of minutes, the Board of Geneal 
Purposes presented the business. The Grand Master, 
M.W. Bro. Faber was nominated by a large number of 
Lodges and re-elected for another term. In moving that 
M.W. Bro. Faber be re-elected, a sincere tribute was paid 
by M.W. Bro. W. J. Girling, P.G.AL, who is the Grand 
Representative of the Grand Lodge of Canada near the 
Grand Lodge of New Zealand. 

The schedule of investments showed £8,000 in the 
Fund of General Purposes and £383,140 in all other 
funds. The total assets under control of Grand Lodge 
were £544,174. The balance to the credit of the Widows 
and Orphans and Aged Persons Fund was £433,895. An- 
nuitants received £12,236 for the year ending September, 
1957- 

The Grand Jurisdiction is divided into 13 Districts 
each presided over by a Provincial Grand Master, who 
submits an annual report, similar to that of our District 
Deputy Grand Masters, but all occupying only 11 pages 
in the proceedings. 

Seven new Lodges were added to the Roll of Grand 
Lodge, and the Board approved new buildings, additions 
and improvements for 15 Lodges. 

Most Lodges have taken out policies for Public 
Risk Insurance thus protecting themselves from claims 
by a person who met with an accident on Lodge premises. 

The Board of General Purposes emphasized the 
responsibility of the Lodge, and particularly that of the 
Master and \A'ardens, in making full enquiries into the 
character of every candidate for membership. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 83 

V.W. Bro. \\\ H. V. Taine presented the Grand 
hodge with a set of five gold-plated sterling silver 
vessels for use in the ceremony of consecration. 

The first matter mentioned by the Grand Master 
was the lack of candidates in some Lodges. He thought 
this temporar}- condition gave an opportunity for addition- 
al instruction and the deepening of fraternal bonds. 

He also discussed the statement, "ATasonry is my 
religion", pointing out that Masonry has never demanded 
or taught any particular faith, but that active member- 
ship in the Order should make a man more active and 
sincere in his church. 

He commended the increased proficiency in the 
ritual and ceremonies of the degrees. However he was 
disappointed that there seemed to be no similar desire 
to become acquainted with the workings of Grand Lodges, 
and urged a thorough knowledge of the annual Book of 
Proceedings. 

He emphasized the message of King George \ I on 
the occasion of the installation of the Earl of Scarbrough 
as Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England, 

"The zcorld to-day docs require moral and spiritual 
regeneration. I have no doubt after many years as a 
member of our Order that Freemasonry can flay a most 
important part in this vital need." 



NORTH DAKOTA— 1958 

69th Annual Communication — June 16-18. 

Grand Master — ALW. Bro. John A. Bamer. 

Lodges, 119. [Membership, 14.270. Net Loss, 130. 

The pictures of the Grand Master, ALW. Bro. John 
Alonzo Barner, follovv-ed by a short biography frorn the 
pen of the Grand Secretary, constitutes a suitable intro- 
duction to the 1958 proceedings of the Grand Lodge 
of North Dakota. 



84 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

After the reception of distinguished guests and 
Past Grand Masters, twelve brethren who became fifty- 
year veterans during the year were introduced and ac- 
corded Grand Honors. 

The Grand Master expressed sorrow and some 
concern over a small loss of membership for some three 
years early in his address, which was thought-provoking 
as the following excerpt indicates. 

"Tike Cross, symbol of Christianity, is first a 
challenge. We all need challenges. If we don't have 
them zve die on our feet. The Cross represents a way 
of life, the challenge to us is to live that ivay of life. 
The Cross is a Vision. A vision is different from a 
challenge in this way — anyone on the sidelines can chal- 
lenge us to win a game. Only a great performer on 
the field can shozv us how to do it, 

''It was S. C. Jones ivho said 'The delights of 
thought, of truth, of zvork, and of zvell doing, will not 
descend upon us like the dew upon the flower, without 
efforts of our ozvn. Labor, zvatchfulness, perseverance, 
self-denial, fortitude, are the elements out of zvhich this 
kind of joy is formed.' 

"Rev. C. L. Bryan has said : 'The genius of Jesus 
was that he lived zvhat He preached. Trade-marks are 
protected by registration. The Cross is accredited or 
discredited by the lives of professing Christians.' " 

He urged increased use and support of the Grand 
Lodge Library ; spoke fittingly of 299 members who had 
passed to the Great Beyond ; listed many appointments, 
dispensations, and other activities ; and concluded by 
quoting stanzas composed by Will Bradley, from which 
one is quoted. 

"If I were doing things for men 
To make the zvorld a better pen 
In zvhich to pasture human feet, 
I'd do it nozu and not next zveek." 

Among the several balances recorded by the Grand 
Treasurer are the following: — General, $13,013.74; 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 85 

Relief, $78,585.48 ; Masonic Service and Education, 
$12,460.11; and Home or Hospital, $66,308.76. 

The Grand Secretary, AI.W. Bro. Harold S. Pond, 
presented a fine review of the year's Masonry in North 
Dakota, discussing returns and finances at some length 
and emphasizing foundations and relief funds. He 
intimated that he had terminated his tenure of the office. 

The Grand Chaplain, \V. Bro. David F. Knecht, 
conducted an impressive Memorial Service and based his 
oration on "A Home not made with Hands." 

The Librarian reported a total circulation of books 
of 2,539 with 188 outside the State, He reported that 
the nmseum has been set up as a permanent institution. 
Exhibits are changed periodically, and items of early 
Masonic history are being collected and preserved. 

The Grand Orator. W. Bro. Nels G. Johnson, pre- 
sented an address on "Our Attitudes", covering over five 
pages of the proceedings with excellent advice, as the 
following indicates, 

"Many of our attitudes are by necessity transitory, 
temporary, and fleeting. Many are inherited from friends, 
parents, associates. Others are created by our environ- 
ment. Some are fundamental and permanent, permeat- 
ing our entire existence. They stay zvith us for life, and 
shape our acts, our thoughts, and react upon our person- 
ality for good or bad. They may constitute our philos- 
ophy zchether we realise it or not, and their existence, 
is a part of our approach to every problem or activity 
we confront. The great preacher, Henry Ward Beccher, 
said : 

" 'All higher motives, ideals, conceptions, sentiments 
in a man are of no account if they do not come foncard 
to strengthen him for the better discharge of the duties 
which involve him in the ordinary affairs of life.' " 

Fraternal correspondence is reviewed by P.G.M. 
Walter H. Murfin in 25 pages with about one-half page

to each Grand Jurisdiction. Among the Canadian Juris- 
dictions only Manitoba is included. 

L. Claude Mensing was elected and installed as 
Grand Master, 



NORWAY— 1958-59 

Your reviewer has received a book of some 597 
pages entitled "Matrikkel over Den Norske Frimurer- 
orden 1958-59", which consists chiefly of lists of officers 
and members. The frontispiece is a picture of Carl 
Kaas who is referred to as Hoyesterettadvokat, and 
several of the early pages list prominent officials. 

At the conclusion of a section (104) pages of the 
report on "Den Norske Store Landsloge" there is a 
record of the various grand representatives of many 
Masonic bodies in fraternal relations with Norway. 
R.W. Bro. R. C. Berkinshaw represents the Grand Lodge 
of Canada (Ontario). Then follow references to 
various Lodges listed as Trondhjems Provincialloge, and 
Bergens Provincialloge, 

The two prominent groups of Lodges are St. Andr. 
Logen (7) and St. Jobs. Logen (26), and the member- 
ship of each is recorded. References to Lodges is 
generally by number, but they may also have names ; 
for example St. Jobs. Logen No. 20 is "Aldebaran" 
and was formed in 1935. The index occupies 154 
pages, and "In Memoriam" almost eight. 



NOVA SCOTIA— 1958 

93rd Annual Communication — June 8-9. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Judge Kenneth L. Crowell. 

Lodges, 113. Membership, 14,871. Gain, 137, 

The Annual Session of the Grand Lodge of Nova 
Scotia really commenced on June 9th and was preceded 
by Divine Service the previous evening. The Grand 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 87 

Chaplain, R.W. Bro. Rev. R. R. Gordon, preached an 
impressive sermon, using- as his text, "He looked for a 
city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is 
God." Hebrews ii :io. 

He claimed Masons were striving to build an ideal 
community, and such should have four main stones in its 
foundation, — justice and righteousness ; liberty ; fellow- 
ship ; and faith, faith in God. One paragraph from his 
oration reads as follows, — 

"It is only as zve acknowledge God as our Father 
and boTv luiuihly hefor Him that zve see others as His 
sons too, all men of zvhatcvcr class or creed, or colour, 
or race, our brothers, God's Children, and the fact that 
zve ozve to them the obligation of brotherhood." 

The Credentials Committee reported tliat 82 Lodges 
were represented by 233 members and that 17 visitors 
were present. Ven. W. E. Ryder, Grand Represent- 
ative of Canada was unable to attend. 

The Grand Master emphasized the close and long 
association of Nova Scotia with many States of the Union 
to the south of Canada. During the year he had made 
some twenty visits to important Alasonic functions, and 
to eleven District meetings. He begins the concluding 
remarks of his address with this paragraph. 

"We are today living in a zvorld of uneasy peace 
zvhere atomic fusion has created forces zvhich, if un- 
leashed, could aid all civilization, and, as it is impossible 
for us as Masons to remain detatched, unconcerned and 
aloof from zvorld events, zvhere great social and economic 
forces are at zvork. it is all the more important that zve 
shozv the zvorld zvhere zve stand; that zve are brethren 
believing in a Supreme Being; the dignity of man, being 
free to live our ozvn lives as zve choose and being part of 
a Fraternity that is a pozver for good in the land, its 
churches and community life." 

Some thirty-one pages are devoted to the reports 
of the District Deputy Grand ]Masters. One might 
sometimes think that they are too wordy, but the D.D. 
G.]\I. likes to record his efforts fully. 



88 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia maintains a 
Masonic Home at Windsor. The Golden Jubilee Appeal, 
under the direction of M.W. Bro. H. M. Standish, P. 
G.M., is to be devoted largely to the support and en- 
largement of the home. 

M.W. Bro. R. V. Harris, P.G,M, gave an interest- 
ing review of Fraternal Relations and listed a number 
of Grand Representatives appointed during the year. 

The Grand Historian was pleased at the number of 
Lodge Historians who were working on the records of 
their Lodges. He also mentioned several additions to 
the Library and Museum. 

The Grand Chaplain presented a short report on 
Necrology, and listed several pages of deceased brethren. 
This paragraph clearly points out a duty. 

"Their passing reminds lis of the brevity of our 
earthly span, the rapid approach of that day when we 
too shall receive a summons that brooks no postpone- 
ment or delay. If the work that they left for us to 
complete is not to be unfinished when the setting sun 
beckons us to the Islands of the West, we must be 
diligent and persevering while it is still today. Only 
as their memory inspires us to renewed endeavour shall 
we truly honour them." 

Some 58 members qualified for Fifty- Year and 
three for Sixty-rear Bars during the year. 

Rev. Donald Maclean Sinclair was elected and in- 
stalled as Grand Master. A brief biography of this new 
Grand Master serves as an introduction to the 1958 
Proceedings. 

OKLAHOMA— 1958 

50th Annual Communication — February 11-13. 

Grand Master— M.W. Bro. W. Earl Goode. 

Lodges, 389. Membership, 87,060. Gain, 436. 

The Official Proceedings report this Communication 
as the 50th Annual of the Grand Lodge of the State of 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 89 

Oklahoma, the 65th of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma 
Territory and the 85th of the Grand Lodge of Indian 
Territory. Some eight special meetings were held 
prior to the Annual Meeting, for constitutions, dedications 
and laying cornerstones. 

The proceedings contain a biography of the Wor- 
shipful ^Master, M.W. Bro. L. V. Orton who was elected 
and installed at the close of this annual session, held in 
Guthrie, Oklahoma. 

Near the commencement of the Grand Master's 
address we find these words, — 

"We have initiated thousands into Masonry and 
trained enthusiasts in its teachings. Many have come 
and passed on, but through it all zve have been blessed 
zcith zcilling zvorkers and loyal leadership, men zcilling 
to give their all in effort and experience to our Fraternity. 
We are confident that, so long as zve adhere to the 
tenets and principles of Masonry, our Grand Lodge zvill 
continue to prosper." 

]\LW. Bro, Goode then proceeded to report on the 
year's activities paying tribute to many ]\lasons who had 
died, both in Oklahoma and in neighboring jurisdictions. 
He was impressed with the Grand Masters' Conference 
and with visits he made. Mention was made of many 
dispensations for conferring degrees in less than statutory 
time, of laying cornerstones, of dedication, constitution 
and consolidation of Lodges. 

Tribute is paid to the Masonic Temple Service, to 
the Mason's Charitv Foundation and to the Board of 
Control of the Ma'sonic Homes. IncidentaUy some 
$75,000.00 and interest were paid on building indebted- 
ness. The Order of Eastern Star, Order of DeMolay 
for Boys, and Order of Rainbow for Girls are highly 
praised. 

The Grand ^Master closed his address with the fol- 
lowing quotation, — 



90 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Hold high the torch, we did not light its glow, 
'Tzvas given us by other hands, yoii know, 
'Tis ours to keep it burning bright. 
Ours to pass on when we no more need light." 

The Grand Treasurer reported a total of $465,879-13 
deposits from which the expenditures were $419,014.86. 

The Grand Secretary called attention to the abuse 
of the privilege which Lodges have of exempting mem- 
bers from the payment of dues. There were some in- 
stances of members carried on lists for many years, one 
for thirty. He reported 1,128 members unable to pay 
dues. 

The Benevolent work is looked after through 
Masonic Home Activity Fund, the Masonic Charity 
Foundation, Home for the Aged, and Masonic Hospital 
Service. 

M.W. Bro. Horace K. Jackson, Jr., P,G,M, of 
Texas was the speaker at the evening meeting of the 
second day. Fie believed that Masonry was helpful in 
developing civilization. 

"A characteristic of an ascending civilisation is the 
strong character and initiative of the individuals who 
carry it forward. Conversely, decaying civilization is 
identified with a breakdown in personal character and 
the death of individual initiative which leads to the 
abandonment of the basic principles upon which the 
civilisation zvas erected. Obviously, character is the 
only guarantee against following after 'false gods' into 
decay. It is necessary therefore that constant training 
in the fundamentals of good character is imperative as 
each new generation arrives to take its place upon the 
stage of action." 

He believes a Masonic Lodge to be a school and 
that its work is not finished until a Master Mason has 
acquired a thorough Masonic Education. 

The Committee on Correspondence devotes some 
75 pages to reviews of some 51 Grand Jurisdictions, in- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 91 

eluding Canada (Province of Ontario) — 1956 and 1957. 
Liberal quotations from the address of M.W. Bro. W. 
Iv. Wright appear in the abstracts. 



OHIO— 1958 

149th Annual Communication — October lo-ii. 

Grand Master — :\I.W. Bro. Andrew J. White, Jr. 

Lodges, 666. Membership, 282,623 Gain, 860. 

The total registered attendance at this Grand Lodge 
meetiing was 1,821 of which 785 were visitors. Incident- 
ally the total number of Lodges in the United States is 
recorded as 15,764 with a membership of 4,082,055, a 
gain of 33,745 for the year. The Grand Lodge of 
Canada, in the Province of Ontario was represented by 
M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn and R.W. Bro. E. G. 
Dixon. 

The Grand Master opened his address with humor- 
ous references to an occasion on which he had been 
addressed as "Most Worthless Grand Master", much to 
the amusement of the assembly. He referred fittingly 
to the "Departed Brethren", and devoted several "In 
Memoriam" pages to three prominent Ohio ]\Iasons. 
Reference is made to the many visits locally and abroad 
during the year. One was to the Grand Lodge of 
Canada when he was accompanied by R.W. Bro. Ed. M. 
Jenkins. He ruled on some 23 questions which were 
submitted to him. He was not favourably impressed by 
Masonic Funeral Services, 

In a couple of sections in his address he dealt with 
criticisms of Masonry, and classified various Masons. 
His "For the Birds" is a slightly satirical reference to 
many ISIasons found in most Lodges. Some are 
"Backward Lookin, Hiram," "Lazy Drop Outians", 
"Flying Gadabout," "Masonicus Querulous" and "Frat- 
ernalis Loyalis". 

The Grand Master urged greater support for the 
various activities of Grand Lodge and especially for 



92 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the maintenance of the Masonic Home. Contributions 
for benevolent purposes for 1957 were $156,776.94 ex- 
clusive of payments to the Home. 

The Report of the Committee on Instruction and 
Education indicates a year of profitable endeavour. One 
activity was the publication of a new set of Degree 
Booklets for use by the candidates. The introductory 
book, "On the Threshold," has been praised highly. 

The Committee on Ways, Means and Accounts 
estimated Income and Expenditures as $1,129,000 and 
$1,049,500 respectively. 

Several pages are devoted to the Masonic Home 
and 66 Grand jurisdictions are reviewed by M.W. Bro. 
Carl W'ier Ellenwood, F.GM. The Grand Lodge of 
Canada receives about one page. 

Chester Hodges was elected and installed as Grand 
Master for 1958-1959. 



OREGON— 1958 

108th Annual Communication — June 11-13. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Clarence A. Kopp. 

Lodges, 190 (2 U.D.) Membership, 44,486. Gain, 93. 

The proceedings have a reproduction of a photo- 
graph of the Grand Master as a Frontispiece, followed 
by a short biographical sketch. 

The Grand Master considered his activities to come 
in two categories, routine of office, and the promotion of 
activities which tend to make Masonry an effective factor 
in the lives of its members and the community in which 
it exists. The former category requires some seven 
pages of the proceedings to record amendments to By- 
laws, asd Dispensations for various purposes. 

The Grand Master held 33 District meetings, con- 
stituted one Lodge, instituted another, and laid five 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 93 

corner-stones. In addition the Grand Lodge dedicated 
many Lodge buildings as they have been completed. 

ALW. Bro. Kopp looked with disfavour on requests 
to have Bingo, fish-pond fortune telling and other forms 
of gambling at Lodge parties. He ruled against the 
use of a Alasonic emblem on the uniforms of a baseball 
team. 

Seventeen Occasional Communications were con- 
ducted by the Grand Master during the year, — nine 
dedications, five laying corner-stones, and one each for 
a Masonic Funeral, the constitution of one Lodge, and 
the institution of another. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence publish- 
ed extracts from and comments on several addresses 
given at various Communications. Over two pages are 
used for the oration of R.W. Bro. Rev. Andrew Caraker 
given at the Grand Lodge of Canada in "Masonry's 
Rendezvous with Destiny." Similarly space is allowed 
to the Grand Orator of Arizona, R.W. Bro. Roger K. 
Trueblood for his "Seven Keys to Gratitude." These 
are discussed briefly as love, faith, reverence, appreciation 
of beauty, humility, happiness, and right thinking. 

Other topics mentioned in the report are Masonry's 
Challenge, Peace, Masonic Education, Youth Organiz- 
ations, Alasonry and Politics, Only a Mason, and, near 
the conclusion, a liberal quotation from "Immortalitv" by 
M.W. Bro. Thomas S. Roy, P.G.M. of Massachusetts. 

The Committee on Masonic Instruction warned 
against roughness and "horse-play". 

"Again zi'c strongly urge a strict refrain from un- 
due roughness in the Third Degree, and zvish to remind 
all Worshipful Masters of their responsibility for all 
things -which happen in their Lodges. Roughness creates 
zvrong impressions and presents hazards we cannot con- 
done. It constitutes a form of Masonic offense." 

The greatest charity of the Grand Lodge of Oregon 
is reported as the Masonic and Eastern Star Home. The 



94 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Home Endowment Fund now totals $1,079,470.59, being 
increased by over $143,000.00 during the Masonic year. 

An item of interest is the establishment of the 
Educational Fund in 1854, wdiich now includes over 
half a milHon dollars. During the year $17,845.00 were 
expended for educational activities by some 34 Lodges. 
The Grand Orator, Douglas ]\IcKay, emphasized freedom 
and education in his address. 

Walter Lansing of Salem was elected and installed 
as Grand blaster. 

The Grand Lodge of Oregon issues a magazine, 
known as "The Freemason", which appears around the 
first of each month. The June number, 1958, had some 
interesting announcements about the forth-coming io8th 
Communication. 



PANAMA— 1958 

Grand ^Master — ALW. Bro. Buenaventura ProHllo. 

The Official Organ of the Grand Lodge of Panama 
is edited by the Grand Secretary, Nathan A. Reid. The 
associated editor, who has charge of the Spanish language 
portion is Jose Oiler N. The June (1958) issue of 
the magazine. La Fraternidad (The Fraternity), has 
some 20 pages in Spanish and eight pages in English. 

The 42nd Annual Communication on April 8, 1958, 
resulted in the election of M.W. Bro. Buenaventura 
Prolillo as Grand Master for the ensuing year. Other 
officers are listed and congratulated by the editors of 
the magazine. 

The publication refers to several Lodges and person- 
alities in the Grand Jurisdiction. Addresses of welcome 
were recorded to ALW. Bro. Andrew Ray Jenkin, G.M. 
of Massachusetts, and on another occasion to Rt. Hon, 
the Earl of Eglinton and Winton, Grand Master Mason 
of Scotland. There is an obituary to the late Melvin 
M. Johnson and some excerpts from the writings of 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 95 

M.W. Bro. Thomas S. Roy under the title, "Do We Claim 
Masonry to be a Religion?" 

The main editorial is entitled "Harmony," from 
which the following quotation is taken, 

"In the zi'orld of Masonry, harmony is the corner- 
stone of the Craft. From it springs the eternal fountain 
that pulses life into the ivhole fabric. It is founded 
upon fraternal love, relief, and truth, faith, hope and 
charity; upon temperance, fortitude, prudence and justice, 
and is diametrically opposed to ignorance, greed, wicked- 
ness, falsehood, and .hypocrisy. It is exemplified in the 
guttural, pectoral, manual and pedal points of fellozvship 
enjoined in the Masonic obligation, and preserved in the 
admonition that 'no contention should be knozun to exist 
among Brethren, but that noble contention or rather, 
emulation of zvho can best work and best agree'. It is 
the result of an alternating preponderance of forces, the 
perfect balance between good and ez'il, light and dark- 
ness, life and action. It is concurrence of contraries, 
the fusion of zchat is above and zvhat is bclozv, the 
average betzvecn the permitted and the prohibited, and 
the union of the visible zvith the invisible, the finite 
with the infinite, the knozvn zvith the unknozvn." 



PENNSYLVANIA— 1958 

Quarterly Communications — Alarch, June, September 
and December. 

Grand Master — R.W. Bro. Sandford M. Chilcote. 

Lodges, 590. Membership, 257,268. Gain, 263. 

The Right Worshipful, the Grand Lodge of Pen- 
nsylvania held quarterly communications on March 5, 
June 4, September 3, and December 3, with the Annual 
Grand Communication on December 2"/. Special meet- 
ings were held in January, April, May and November. 

The Special Communication in April w^as for the 
dedication of Masonic Homes at Elizabethtown. The 



9e GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

address was given by the Grand Chaplain, Bro. W. Ralph 
Ward. 

"Masonry sees the end product of civilisation not 
in bridges and buildings, Jiighzvays and cities, but persons 
whose lives are fashioned after the divine. The true 
goal of life is the creation of men; not the acciimidation 
of things. . . " 

At the May Communication the R.W. Grand Secre- 
tary, Ashby B. Paul, was installed. 

At the June Quarterly, Bishop Fred Pierce Corson, 
spoke on some phases of Masonry around the w^orld. 
He emphasized that tyranny fears Masonry for several 
reasons, — 

"Masonry stands for the developnioit of character." 

"Masonry maintains the right of privacy." 

"Masonry permits pride." 

"Masonry develops leadership." 

"Masonry speaks a universal language." 

"Masonry is a great world force without ivhich our 
hopes for freedom and democracy and settlement 
of our international problems would be greatly 
dimmed." 

At the December Quarterly the Grand Officers 
were elected, the Grand blaster's term being extended for 
another year. The Grand Secretary reported the re- 
ceipts of Bequests and Gifts amounting to $568,887.82. 
The records and reports of the various trustees of these 
funds cover some 83 pages of the proceedings. 

The total receipts of Grand Lodge were $6,113,559.37, 
and the expenditures came to $5,973,445.38. 

The Committee on IMasonic Culture noted the grad- 
ually lincreasing list of subscribers to "The Pennsylvania

The Committee on Masonic Homes had an active 
year, receiving some 323 applications, and stating that 
some 144 were pending with the Lodges. The actual 
number of guests on the roll was 688. The number of 
patients treated in the Hospital was 896 and some 10,990 
tests were done in the Laboratory. A complete report 
was included on the Homes and Farm. 

I\LW. Bro. Harry L. Martyn attended the Annual 
Grand Communication on December 27. 

Installation ceremonies were held, and the Grand 
]\Iaster delivered his annual address in which he remarked 
on the various objectives and projects of the Grand

At the close of 1956, there were 11.538 Master 
Alasons but with the recognition of the Grand Lodge of 
Japan, 2.143 members transferred to this Grand Jurisdic- 
tion. Near the conclusion of the Communication M.W. 
Bro. Howard R. Hick became the new Grand Master. 
It would appear that there is an alternation of Grand 
Master between ]\Iasons of the Philippines and of the 
LTnited States. The proceedings open with a concise 
biographical sketch of the new Grand Master. 



98 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Early in the annual meeting a guest speaker, Dr. Y. 
C. James Yen, delivered a speech on Truth and Brotherly 
Love. During the development of his oration, he 
mentioned "Tlie Philippines Rural Reconstruction Move- 
ment", "Agricultural Science for Increased Production", 
"Political Science for Self-government", and "Science 
Missionaries", — all contributing to truth. 

Among the Grand Representatives was Abundio C. 
Rosario who answered for Canada. 

The Grand Master spoke highly of the Masonic 
Hospital for Crippled Children. A total of 177 patients 
were treated during the year with a very high percentage 
of cures. He made many visitations and appointed 
delegates to discuss and settle several problems with the 
Grand Lodge of Japan. Recognition was finally recom- 
mended and approved. 

The Grand Orator visited several Lodges and issued 
three circular letters in which he called the Master's 
attention to his duty to see that the Ritual was not used 
during any degree work, that the conferring of degrees 
must be done with seriousness and decorum, and that 
the Master must wear a hat appropriate to the office. 

The Grand Orator, W. Bro. William H. Qus|ha, 
delivered an oration on "All God's Children". He stong- 
ly criticized the attitude of Bertrand Russell as a pacifist 
and impractical in his views. 

The new Grand Master made a fine speech at his 
inaugural address stressing his desire to tender satisfact- 
ory stewardship. 

The official publication of the Grand Lodge of 
the Philippines is a quarterly magazine known as "The 
Cable Tow", Three copies have been available for 
review and comment. One had a short article, "The 
Sources of Freemasonry", by Bro. J. A. Klein in Western 
Australia on the front cover.

A special Communication of Grand Lodge was held 
on June 14th to lay the cornerstone and to dedicate the 
Masonic Temple at Charlottetown. 

At the Annual Meeting some 50 Grand Represent- 
atives responded to the roll call. The Grand Master 
expressed satisfaction over an increase in Lodge mem- 
bership and over the quality of the candidates. 

During the year the Senior Offices of all Lodges 
were scheduled to meet in conferenre at Charlottetown 
and present papers for discussion. Inclement weather 
curtailed attendance but the effort was considered worth

while. M.W. Bro. Lord in his address under Necrology 
referred to deceased Masons in these words, — 

"When toil is done, and one by one, 
We meet with our release 
Beyond the tomb, life's perfect bloom. 
The Temple - Heaven - Peace," 

The Grand Master regretted that he was unable 
to accept invitations from several Grand Jurisdictions, 
but was pleased with a special meeting at Picton where 
closer friendship with the Grand iLodge of Nova Scotia 
was cemented. 

Excellent reports were given by the Deputy Grand 
]\Iaster and the Grand Orator. From the latter's 
address the following paragraph is significant. 

"Masonry tries to make better men out of good 
men, Masonry belongs to all time, Masonry finds great 
truths in all benevolent religions and Masonry united 
men in common fellozvship, in common purpose, in com- 
mon service." 

The Grand Lodge operated on a budget of $2,826.66. 
The Benevolent Fund amounts to $34,735.86 most of 
which is invested in various bonds. 

The new Grand Master is M.W. Bro. Errol R. 
Stetson of whom there is a short biography as an intro- 
duction to the Proceedings.

Sixty Lodges were represented at the 73rd Annual 
Meeting. Isidro Diaz Lopez answered the roll call as 
Ontario's Grand Representative. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 101 

The Communication is recorded by the Grand 
Secretary, R.W. Bro. Emiliano Isales, in some 15 mimeo- 
graphed pages. One new Lodge was instituted during' 
the year. The reports of some 10 Standing Committees 
were read and confirmed, but the Secretary comments 
only briefly on some but does not publish them. The 
same applies to the reports of the thirteen District Deputy 
Grand Masters. 

The report on Foreign Relations and Correspond- 
ence recommended approval of recognition of Grand 
Lodges in New Brunswick, West Australia, and Germany. 
Further information is to be sought regarding Japan and 
the several Grand Lodges of Brazil. 

The Grand Lodge held some 40 special Communic- 
ations of which 34 were for Installations of Officers. 
Three of the special events were for instituting, con- 
scrating and constituting of a new Lodge, and dedicating 
a new temple. 

The assets of the Grand Lodge total $679,065.6'^ 
and the liabilities are only $4,467.72. The increase in 
assets for the year is $7,197.95. 

Thity-eight brethren received Honor and Fidelity 
Diplomas for twenty-five years of uninterrupted service. 
One brother qualified for the Fifty Year Diploma and 
Button. 

The Grand Secretary devotes about three pages to 
the addresses, visits and other activities of the Grand 
Master, who was re-elected. The Secretary refers to 
the Grand Master in these words 

"Those zvho hear him speaking of Masonry become 
conscious that an institution, like ours, based on the 
Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God, pro- 
vides ez'erything that is necessary for the happiness of 
man and prepares him to confront the hazards of life 
with steadfast determination." 

Tlie Grand Lodge issues quarterly bulletins under 
the title "Acacia". There is an English section in the 



102 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

third quarterly of 1958 by R.W, Bro. A. G. Lightburn, 
and under "Duly and Truly Prepared" he discusses the 
necessity of well qualified officers. Another significant 
article is entitled "The Dignity of Masonry." 

Your reviewer has received one copy of a quarterly 
magazine, "Acacia," which is the official publication of 
the Grand Lodge of Puerto Rico. The portrait of a 
Past Grand Master, M.R.H. Jose Gonzalez Ginorio, 
appears on the front cover. 

The concluding pages appear in English and refer 
to the English Section of the Grand Lodge which includes 
three Lodges, — "St. John the Baptist", "Paul Revere" 
and "Caribbean Light". The Grand Master of this 
section is i\LW. Bro. Hipolito Marcano. One of the 
problems discussed is the very familiar "lack of attend- 
ance at Lodge meetings !" 

Among the articles in Spanish are a history of the 
Eastern Star in Puerto Rico, and a short biography of 
the Grand Master, mentioned above by the Grand 
Historian. There is also a philosophical treatment of the 
jMasonic Conception of immortality.

Grand Master — ^LW. Bro. J. ^IcL. Marshall. 

Lodges, 105 (2 U.D.)' ^Membership, 18,033. Gain, 115. 

The Grand Master conducted three Special Com- 
munications during the year, two for dedications and one 
for the institution of a new Lodge, 

M.W. Bro. Marshall expressed sorrow in memory 
of some 388 members who had died during the year, in- 
cluding two Past Grand Masters. He made some fifty 
visitations during the year. He was favourably im- 
pressed with the Conference of Grand Masters in North 
'America, at Washington, D.C. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 103 

The Grand Master reported that in perusing some 
Lodge notices and bulletins, two items were noted which 
suggested some solicitation in favour of nominees for 
Grand Lodge. He pointed out the following ruling: — 



k 



"Canvassing for office in Grand Lodge and in sub- 
ordinate Lodges is opposed to the spirit and principles 
of Freemasonry" . 

The Grand JMaster's address occupies some 19 pages 
of the Proceedings. Near the conclusion w^e find this 
excellent paragraph. 

"Masonry is a relationship of kindred sonls, dedicat- 
ed to sincere understanding for the benefit of all human- 
ity, bound together by an all- pr evading love of the one 
Father, the Creator of Life and Master Craftsman, whose 
delineation of beauty surpasses the pozvcr of mortal 
zvords to describe. Masonry functions like a great 
balance zvheel — it leads stability to the human life; 
it gives purpose to the hmnan mind; it grants assurance 
to the human heart. It has lived through many ages; 
it zvill grozv through many more. It secures for men 
today a nezv significance of life for those zvho zi'ould 
seek the Truth". 

Some thirty-five pages contain the reports of the 
District Deputy Grand Masters. These indicate con- 
siderable activity in the Grand Jurisdiction, but one some- 
times marvels at the enthusiasm and optimism shown by 
them. 

The Permanent Benevolent Fund has assets of 
$583,663.47 and the Revenue Account of this Fund pro- 
duces $68,805.25. The Emergencies Benevolent Fund 
reports $110,173.87. For the year, receipts in the 
General Fund were $24,830.03 while disbursements were 
$19, 560. 83. From the two Benevolent Funds 27 cases 
were assisted to the extent of $5,406.01, equivalent to 
.30 per capita of membership. 

The Committee on the State of Masonry expressed 
regret that some Lodges were failing to enforce the 
Constitution in reference to arrears in dues. Tlie two 



104 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Lodges, Under Dispensation, were recommended for the 
granting- of Charters. 

The Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. R. W. Louthood, 
is Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations and 
Correspondence. Recognition was extended to the 
Grand Lodge of the State of Israel, but held in abeyance 
for the Grand Lodges of Venezuela, Japan and China. 

Fifteen members were presented with Fifty-year 
Jewels, thus bringing the total awards to forty-nine for 
the year. 

The Grand Master was re-elected and installed for 
another year. 

QUEENSLAND— 1958 

37th Annual Report 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Horace B. Milliner. 

This report deals with a Special Communication held 
on July 3rd, 1957, and four quarterly meetings during the 
year ending June, 1958. 

At the Special Communication, M.W. Bro. Milliner 
was installed as Grand Master. Grand Masters from 
Western Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South 
Wales and South Australia were present to witness the 
ceremonies. 

From M.W. Bro. Milliner's address the following 
paragraph denotes a noble resolution. 

"IVe noiv stajid on the threshold of a nezv Masonic 
year. Let us resolve that by complete efficiency and 
enthusiasm the future zvill be even better than the past, 
and that zve shall prove ivorthy of the great heritage 
handed dozvn to us." 

Various officers were installed or invested, and 
greetings were voiced by many visitors. 

Complete reports were presented by the Board of 
General Purposes and the Board of Benevolence at the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 105 

Quarterly Communication in September. The Treasurer's 
Report showed considerable funds in a variety of projects 
to the amount of £523,481-18-0. 

A fine address was given by Bro. Professor R. P. 
Cummings on "The Noble Orders of Architecture." 

The Grand Master reported that he had made visits 
to about sixty Lodges. 

The December Quarterly was well attended and 
R.W. Bro. A. J. M. Stoney, PJ,G,W„ delivered an 
address on "King Solomon." The Grand Master made 
64 visits. Nominations for various offices were made. 

During the IMarch meeting the Grand Chaplain, 
\^.W. Bro. I,.. T. Douglas, addressed the assemblv on 
'The Book of Ruth." 

At various Quarterly Communications the Grand 
Master conferred Past Rank on various brethren. In 
June the Grand Lodge officers were elected as nominated 
by the Board of General Purposes. 

Th United Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Ac- 
cepted Masons of Queensland issues a quarterly mag- 
azine, "The Ashlar." The December issue of 1958 has 
been available for review. Included there is a supple- 
ment "Complete Queensland Masonic Directory." The 
magazine has interesting articles on various Masonic 
topics. 

The Ashlar is published quarterly by The United 
Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted IMasons of 
Queensland, under the editorship of M.W. Bro. Albert 
E. Roberts, P.G.M. 

The September issue opens with an editorial on 
"Leadership" from which the following quotation, de- 
scribing the basis of Masonry is taken. 

"Brotherly love and tolerance is the foundation on 
TVihieh Freemasonry rests, and brotherly loir and toler- 
ance is the 0)ily direct course for a Ruler in the Craft. 
Impartiality among the brethren is the one and all in 



106 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

brotherhood, more especially, as an example, by those 
who rule. Masonic laws are very clear, thus there is 
no excuse for not carrying them out. 

"With unanimous support by all to the tenets and 
precepts of Freemasonry, to promote and encourage faith 
and confidence in each other, we will go far towards 
that great day to ivhich purpose Freemasonry set out 
to consummate, the Brotherhood of Man." 

The valuable work of M.W. Bro. W. B. Beanland, 
P.G.M., on the Board of General Purposes, 1924 to 1958, 
was recognized in the presence of several prominent Past 
Grand Masters. Another article is devoted to Bro. Sir 
Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin. 

The proclamation and installation of RAV. Bro. 
H. B. Millner as Grand Master for a second term occurred 
on July 2nd. In his speech, accepting- the office, he 
referred to some 35,000 practising Masons in Queensland, 
and their impact for good on the greater part of 100,000 
people. 

Mention is made of the new Temple erected by 
Port Douglas — Mossman Lodge and of its history and 
the ceremony of dedication. A similar ceremony is 
recorded for Roma Temple. Masonry is evidently on 
the march in Queensland. 

A page is devoted to M.W. Bro. (the late) King 
Edward VII, P.G.M. and his association with Quatuor 
Coronati Lodge of Research. 

The Grand Master's visits to the two Northern 
Districts are reported and also his visit to West Australia 
for the installation of M.W. Bro. J. L. Rossiter, M.A., 
D. Litt., as Grand Master. 

Many other interesting articles are recorded in The 
Aslar, including "The Cup of Brotherly Love", (The 
Holy Grail of Freemasonry) attributed to Brother 
Hickox.

RHODE ISLAND— 1958 

167th Annual Communication — May 19, 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. George A. Farron. 

Lodges, 44. Membership, 19,205. Gain, 61. 

The full title of this Grand Jurisdiction is, — "The 
Grand Lodge of the most Ancient and honorable Society 
of Free and Accepted Masons for the State of Rhode 
Island and Providence Plantations." 

During the year, Nelson Arthur Hyland, the Grand 
Secretary, died and the Grand Master appointed ]\I.W. 
Bro. Fred W. Johnstone to fill the vacancy. 

Four Occasional Communications were held, one 
for instituting a Lodge, one for the dedication and two for 
corner-stone layings. The semi-annual Convocation was 
held on November 18, 1957. The Grand Master refer- 
red to some twenty membrs who had died since the 
Annual Meeting, including the late Grand Secretary. 

The two Communications for the laying of comer- 
stones were held on Sundays, a procedure unknown in 
the Grand Lodpe of Canada. The Rhode Island services 
were highly spiritual and religious and seemed to be most 
apt and fitting. 

Past Grand Master Albert P. Ruerat closed his 
memorial to R.W. Bro. Hyland with this stanza, — 

"Nozv the labourer's task is o'er; 
Nozv the battle day is passed; 
Noiv upon the farther shore 
Lands the voyager, home at last." 

At the Annual Communication the Grand Master 
mentioned some twenty Masters and Past Masters, who 
since the previous semi-annual meeting, had joined the 
"Grand Lodge Above." He reported many visits he 
had made both in and out of the Grand Jurisdiction. He 
commented on the loss of membership by city Lodges to 
those in the suburbs, thus causing some concern in the 
financing of the older Lodges. 



108 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

He listed some 'j'^^ veterans who had qualified for 
the fifty-year medals. 

Lodges in Rhode Island average 435 members, 
ranging from 76 to 1,300. The Grand Master hints 
that intimate friendship is scarcely possible in a large 
Lodge. 

In commenting on the refusal of Lodges to release 
jurisdiction to another Lodge he said, — 

"Very bluntly, it is my opinion that release is 
denied for no other reason than to secure for themselves 
the initiation fee'. Masonry is being placed on a dollar 
basis." 

The Grand Master reported on tlie Q)ndition of 
Masonry in these paragraphs. 

"In Rhode Island Freemasonry, there are problems 
to be met. Some Lodges are gradually losing member- 
ship and foresee financial adjustment. Some others are 
bothered by housing problems and consequent financial 
matters. 

"In the overall picture, Freemasonry is advancing 
in numbers, stability and moral standing. I am not 
unduly worried, certainly not pessimistic. Freemasonry 
has in it those qualities which insure its growth." 

The reports of the seven District Deputy Grand 
Masters take up sixteen pages. Almost always they 
are records of the itinerary'. 

The General Fund allocated $49,026.25 for various 
purposes. It was all spent except $1,571.25. Part of 
the funds come from the per capita tax of $1.25. The 
total assets of all funds are $85,623.71. 

Henry J. Cooper was elected and installed as Grand 
Master for 1958-59.

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 109 

Police in dress uniform, and later these officers present 
the flags of Canada and the United States. The 
Credentials Coinniittee reported 428 members in attend- 
ance, representing^ 142 Lodges. Bro. Fred C. Wilson 
answered the roll call as the Grand Representative of 
Canada in Ontario. 



The Grand ]\Iaster accompanied by the Grand 
Secretary, M.W. Bro. Robt. A. Tate, visited all Masonic 
Districts for a day. In the afternoon there was an 
exemplification of portions of the Fellowcraft Degree, 
and in the evening the Grand Secretary spoke on 
"Masonic Facts and Fallacies". The Grand Master 
praised these meetings and emphasized the advisability of 
more Masonic Education. 

The Grand Master referred fittingly to the Fraternal 
Dead and listed prominent deceased members of many 
Grand Jurisdictions in friendly relations with Sask- 
atchewan. 

Due attention was given to the Banff Conference, 
Youth Programme, Christmas Message in the "Tracing 
Board", Anniversaries, and Msits to Constituent Lodges 
and to other Grand Jurisdictions. 

The receipts of Grand Lodge for the year were 
$35,410.10, with a balance of $3,766.55 after expenditures 
had been met. The Benevolent Fund had total receipts 
of $41,715.53 from which payments for assistance amount- 
ed to $23,269.45. Other demands came from the 
Benefit Fund, the Education Fund, and the Tracing 
Board Fund. Nearly $4,000.00 are expended on The 
Freemasonry and Youth Fund. The Summary of 
Surplus Accounts was $676,754.39. 

The Grand Secretary's Report was quite complete 
and detailed, giving a resume of his many activities. 
Thirty-two fifty-year certificates were issued and some 
155 Life Memberships were prepared. He ended his 
report by quoting the following stanza. — 



110 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Welding the bonds of brotherhood 
In a great chain of common good. 
Bearing the burdens, sharing things 
Lifting the world with shining wings. 
All this our creed, onr hope and plan 
Keeping the faith, with God and Man." 

The Committee on the Condition of ]\Iasonry made 
excellent reports on membership and meetings. Lodges 
with high membership usually have a low percentage 
attendance, and the highest rate, 82%, was held by a 
Lodge of 39 members. The Committee urged an increase 
in knowledge of the Craft, through individual and group 
study. 

Each District Deputy Grand Master reported his 
year's activities, using about one page of the proceedings. 

M.W. Bro. Douglas Fraser and his Committee on 
Fraternal Correspondence and Relations recommended 
that applications for recognition by China and Japan be 
filed, that Venezuela be held in abeyance and that of 
Egypt refused. Some twenty-seven pages are devoted 
to reviews of proceedings. Ontario receives about one- 
half a page, 

]\LW. Bro. R. ]\Iayson was elected and installed as 
Grand Master.

of the excellent response to the appeal for funds for the 
Scottish Masonic Home, Randolph Hill, Dunblane, an 
excellent addition to the facilities of Ault Wharrie. 

The Grand ^Master Mason and the Grand Secretary 
visited the Scottish Lodges in Bermuda, Panama, Jamaica, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 111 

St. Kitts, Barbados, Trinidad and British Guiana The 
journey totalled some 12,000 miles by air and 3,000 miles 
by sea. The Grand Master Mason's Chronological 
report of and commentary on his extensive journey is 
most interesting- and informative. His summary of the 
trip is comprehensive but very concise. 

"It is inevitable that a report of this kind must of 
necessity be factual, and the folloii.'ing statistical snnimary 
may be of interest : — 

(a) We zvere twenty-six days in Bermuda and 
the Caribbean Area. 

(b) We attended seventeen meetings at which 
Degrees, or other ceremonial work were car- 
ried through. 

(c) We were guests at thirty-three dinners, lunch- 
eons, receptions, etc., at most of which we 
both made speeches. 

(d) JVc Jiad eight informal meetings where zve 
discussed Masonic matters generally. 

(e) We attended Divine Service with the Brethren 
on each of the four Sundays. 

Most of the business of the Grand Lodge of Scotland 
is handled by the Committee of the Fund of Scottish 
Masonic Benevolence, and by the Grand Committee. 
Benevolent Grants totalled £565.0.0. Committees on 
Finances, Hall and Buildings, Museum and Library, and 
for other features report regularly to the Grand Com- 
mittee. 

Attached to the proceedings of the Quarterly Com- 
munication of August 7th, 1958, is the Report of the 
Official Opening Ceremony of Randolph Hill held on 
August 2nd. The Grand Master Mason introduced 
The Earl of Elgin and Kincardin who expressed his 
thanks for donations exceeding £13,000, and then called 
on Lady Eglinton to open Randolph Hill. 

The Grand blaster Mason called on the R.W. 
Substitute Grand Master, Bro. Lord Bruce, to present his 



112 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

report on a visit to West Africa, Rhodesia and Kenya. 
This was done with great care and detail. 

The Grand Treasurer Bro. D. Macneill Watson 
presented a short report on his visit to Iran and Iraq. 

Several visitors were present and AI.W. Bro. F. P. 
Galbraith, P.G.M. of Alberta spoke briefly and effectively 
on Masonry in Canada and on his visit to Scotland. 

The Masonic Homes Board met in September and 
reported donations of £13,882.13.3 for the furnishings 
of Randolph Hill.

eral Purposes. 

During the half-year one new Lodge was consecrated 
and two others were constituted. Only a few people, 
one member, two widows and four children receive assis- 
tance from the W'ar Relief Fund. The Board has 
several homes which are available for tenancy as soon 
as they become vacant. The Board also allocates 
several Masonic Scholarships. 

During the six months interval nine brethren were 
added to the roll of fifty-year veterans. The following 
regulations govern qualifications for veteran rank.

masonry, although such service may not have 
been continuous and although portion of such 
service may have been served in another 
Jurisdiction, provided that his qualifications 
for recciznng the award hove been approved 
by the Board of General Purposes." 

During the half-yearly communication the Grand 
iMaster gave an excellent address and invited the Grand 
Secretary to trace the history of the application to the 
Earl Marshal of England for a warrant covering the 
Arms of Grand Lodge. The design appears to be 
very attractive. 

At the Annual Communication the Board of Gen- 
eral Purposes approved consecration of a new Lodge, 
added another nine to the roll of fifty-year veterans, and 
approved recognition of the Grand Lodge of the State 
of Israel. 

The excess if Income over Expenditure in the Gen- 
eral Fund was £1,224/6/10, and funds distributed for 
Benevolence were £8,655/14/8. The assets of the 
Grand Lodge were listed at £151,984/0/7. 

At the Annual Communication, IM.W. Bro. the Hon. 
Sir Geoffrey Reed, LL.B.. presided. The total attend- 
ance was 735 with Grand Representatives for eight 
Provinces, in Caanada. After referring to loyalty to the 
Sovereign he spoke as follows, on Fortitude, — 

"Brethren, the professions of loyalty to ivhich ice 
give utterance on so many occasions are not mere gestures.^ 
They come from our hearts and they are the voice of 
that spirit by zvhich ivc arc constantly actuated, and 



114 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

which is the spring of so much of our conduct through 
life. Among the attributes that keep that spirit alive 
and active, the cardinal virtue of Fortitude surley pays 
a very important and significant part. This is a virtue 
which perhaps we are inclined to take too much for 
granted, and as manifesting itself only in certain ways. 
At times zue hear of or ivitness outstanding examples of 
courage zvhich move us to great admiration, and often 
we are amazed at the tremendous power of the spirit of 
man which can lift him to such heights of achievement. 
Then again we have in our midst many who over a 
long period of years hear with great patience and without 
complaint the inflictions of some serious disability or 
illness. They also move us by the spirit they evince." 

Fraternal Reviews include only the United Grand 
Lodge of England, and the Grand Lodge of Australia. 



SOUTH CAROLINA— 1958 

22 1st, Annual Communication — April 24-25. 

Grand Master— M.W. Bro. L. Wade Temple, Jr. 

Lodges, 298. Membership, 55,693. Gain, 1,087. 

The Grand Lodge officers had a busy year with 
seven Special Communications for dedication ceremonies, 
and six for the laying of cornerstones. The Annual 
Communication was preceded by a Rehgious Service at 
which the Grand Chaplain preached a sermon on "The 
Godly Man," whom de described as follows, — 

"Wherever you see a good man, zvhatever his gifts 
and talents may be, it is his character that marks him 
out and gives him a position of influence and authority 
among men His character is not of his ozvn making. 
It is his faith in God that makes him zchat he is. 'His 
delight is in the lazv of the Lord, and in His Law doth he 
meditate day and night.' He is the man who looks 
not 'on the things that are seen; hut on the things which 
are not seen.' All that we see in him to admire; his 
integrity, his love of justice, his mercifulness, his kind- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 115 

vess, is the product of his communion zvith the Eternal. 
He is like a tree planted by the rivers of zvater, and it is 
because his roots s^trikc deep in spiritual soil that he brings 
forth fruit and his leaf does not zvither." 

Attributes of character which he emphasized were, — 
Firmness, Fruitfuhiess, and Freshness. 

R.W. Bro. Eward G. Dixon attended as our Grand 
Representative to South Carolina. 

The Grand Master's address presented a vivid 
picture of a year of great Masonic activity. He de- 
scribed the State of the Craft in these words, — 

"Harmony prevails throughout the Jurisdiction and 
reports, zvithout exception, sustantiate this statement." 

Tribute was paid to the memory of some 678 
brethren who had died during the Masonic year. 

The Grand Secretary, ]\I.W. Bro. Henry F. ColHns, 
was advised by his physician to reHnquish all duties for a 
time. R.W. Bro. Hugh N. Layne, S.G.W. was ap- 
pointed Secretary, Pro Tem. 

The Grand Master made approximately fifty visits 
in South Carolina and some twenty-three to other Grand 
Jurisdictions including one to the First Annual Communic- 
ation, Grand Lodge, F. and A.M. of Japan, in Tokyo. 
This visit ranks as the high light of his term in the Grand 
East. 

During the year y^^ brethren received a Golden 
Emblem signifying the lapse of 50 years since they had 
become Master Masons. Twenty-five year service 
awards were presented to 350 brethren. 

The Receipt for Dues Cards have a space on tliem 
for recording the blood type of a brother. 

The Treasurer's Report showed receipts in the 
Masonic Relief Fund of $282,789.93, and disbursements 
of $24,256.00 to 84 ^Master ^Masons and $38,986.00 to 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

149 widows. The per capita contributions to the fund 
were $53,982.00. 

A resolution proposing the establishment of a 
Masonic University in South Carolina was referred to 
the Jurisprudence Committee, and was to be retained by 
it for further study. 

Bro. H. Dwight McAlister, Fraternal Correspondent, 
reviews proceedings of other Grand Jurisdictions, and 
gives about one and one-half pages to Canada in Ontario. 
The opinions of M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright are emphasized. 

Thomas H. Pope was elected and installed as Grand 
IVIaster. 

SOUTH DAKOTA— 1958 

84th Annual Communication — ^June lo-ii. 

Grand ]\Iaster — M.W. Bro. F. D. Richards. 

Lodges, 168. ^Membership, 20,433. Loss, 100. 

The Proceedings commence with records of three 
Occasional Grand Lodge Communications, — one for the 
Installation of the Deputy Grand Master, and two for the 
Dedication of Masonic Temples at Hudson and Edgemont. 
Then followed a biographical sketch of the Grand Master, 
Floyd Dudley Richards. 

M.W. Bro. Richards described his year as "full and 
interesting." He attended twenty-four District Meet- 
ings, and some six meetings of Constituent Lodges, and 
made ten "out of state visitations." He made fitting 
references to deceased brethren, and presented 
several fifty-year medals and palms. 

The Grand Treasurer reported receipts $88,671.22 
for the year, including a balance of $41,490.88 from the 
previous year; the disbursements were recorded as 
$17,923.32 and the additional Budget Items totalled

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 117 

The Grand Secretary reported complete returns 
from all the Chartered I-X>dges. The Grand Lodge 
Library Contingency Fund totals $5,438.41. The books 
and periodicals are reported in considerable demand. 

The Deputy Grand Master and the two Wardens 
submitted brief reports on their year's activities. 

The Grand Chaplain, Rev. J. W. Torbert, conducted 
"The Masonic Memorial Service" for those who have 
been called up higher by the Supreme Architect of the 
Universe. He used these lines of William CuUen 
Bryant. 

''So live, that when thy summons comes to join 
The innnmerahle caravan zvhich moves 
To that mysterious realm ivhere each shall take 
His chamber in the silent halls of death, 
Thou go not like a quarry slave at night 
Scourged to his dungeon; but, sustained and soothed 
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave 
Like one zvho zvraps the drapery of his coucJi 
About him, and lies dozoi to pleasant dreams. 

Fifty-year pins were awarded to y^ veteran brethren, 
palms to 6 sixty-year stalwarts, and Distinguished Service 
awards to 7 members. 

At the banquet, IM.W. Bro. Robert A. Tate, Grand 
Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan, delivered 
a fine address on "Freemasonry and Freedom". He 
discussed some five phases of modern society and pointed 
out Edward Gibbon's claims in "The Decline and Fall 
of the Roman Empire" were applicable to conditions 
to-day. These five points were emphasized, — 

"i. The undcr}]iining of the dignity of the home 
which is the basis of human society. 

2. Higher and higher taxes — the spending of public 
monies for free bread and circuses. 

3. The mad crace for pleasure — sports becoming 
ever\ year, more exciting and inore brutal. 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

4. The building of gigantic armaments when the 
real enemy zvas within. 

5. The decay of religious faith, faith fading into a 
mere form, losing touch with life and becoming 
impotent to guide people." 

Thirty-six pages are used for Fraternal Correspond- 
ence and Recognition. One page is given to the Grand 
Lodge of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

The new Grand blaster is M.W. Bro. Ernest L. 
Johnson. 



TASMANIA— 1958 

67th Annual Communication — February 22. 

Grand Alaster— M.W. Bro. F. J. Carter. 

Lodges, 67. Membership, 8,479 Gain, 104. 

The meeting was held at Devonport and was attended 
bv all except 6 Lodges. Alost of the business was 
reported by the Board of General Purposes and the Board 
of Benevolence. The former indicated progress in 
improvement of Lodge premises. 

"The Board now has under consideration a scheme 
for creating a fund for the purpose of assisting Lodges 
zvith their Temples, and of purchasing an office for 
Grand Lodge. The proposal will be put before Grand 
Lodge at the half-yearly Communication in August next." 

The Board of Benevolence reported assistance to 
10 brethren and to 29 widows and dependents of deceased 
IMasons. 

"Relief has been extended to Masons in distressed 
circumstances, their widows and children to the extent 
of £1,953/0/4, zvhich includes special Christmas cheer 
of £380. (£10 per beneficiary). This shows an increase 
of £152 odd on the corresponding period last year. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 119 

"Total disbursements for the year amounted to 
£3,476/13/3, an increase of £240 on last year. 

The Grand Inspector of Lodges favoured an im- 
provement in deportment and dignity. 

, "Deacons have a Jiabit of using their IVands to 
indicate to Candidates zvhere and how they are required 
to stand. The IVand is their emblem of office and it 
does not look well to see it used in this manner. 

"Some Worshipful Masters and Wardens use their 
Gavels in a far to forcible manner." 

Punctuality sometimes appears to be violated in 
Tasmaina — a failing in some Lodges in Ontario, Canada. 

"A punctual opening of the Lodge by the Worship- 
ful Master, and the saving of a few moments here and 
there, can result in the ceremony in the Temple finishing 
early enough to enable Brethren to remain for the pro- 
ceedings in the South, and still be home in good time if 
desired. It does not appear detrimental to the fellozv- 
ship of the South if some Brethren consider it necessary 
to go home before the conclusion of the evening due to 
a late finish." 

The Grand Master gave an extensive review of the 
year's activities. A few of his remarks might be given 
attention by many Masons in the Grand Lodge of Canada. 

"I learn there have been instances where, on a Past 
Master's Night, a Master of a Lodge has handed over 
his collar to a Past Master performing the ceremony 
for the evening. It is quite wrong for him to do so, 
as in effect he is divesting himself of his Master's 
authority. 

"Another matter to zvhich I would like to refer is a 
report that in some Lodges proceedings continue in- 
definitely some time after the Tyler's Toast. This is 
a bad practice and leaves the Craft open to adverse 
criticism. . . . 

"We need to build up and constantly maintain a 
high standard for our admission to the Craft. I am 



120 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

afraid there is still a tendancy for some Brethren to treat 
the matter lightly and to introduce candidates who haz'e 
not the fundamental qualities to either appreciate Masonry 
for zvhat it really is or the inclnation to adhere to its 
standards." 

V.W. Bro. W. E. Xorthey, P.G.C. delivered an 
interesting address at the dedication of the Tamar Valley 
Xew Temple on "Our Xame — \\'hat's in a Name?" 
The address was treated in four sections, — ^Lodge, 
Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons, 

The Grand ^Master was continued in office for 
another year. 

The half-yearly communication was held on August 
30, 1958, with the Grand Master presiding. 

The Board of General Purposes presented a report 
covering some six meetings and including congratulations 
to five brethren who had been awarded the Fifty Years 
Long Ser\'ice Jewels. Several resolutions were present- 
ed to Grand Lodge to amend the constitution. One to 
establish a Property Fund to provide Headquarters for 
Grand Lodge evoked a lengthy discussion and action 
was deferred until the next meeting. 

The Grand ^Master delivered a fine address in which 
he said in part, — 

"In saying therefore as I do noiv, that the state of 
tilt Craft in Tasmania generally, remains healthy and its 
reputation high, it zcill be recognized that such a state- 
ment is supported by my own close observation and 
personal experience." 

Two notable orations are recorded, — one by V.W. 
Bro. W. E. Northy, P.G.C. at the dedication of the new- 
temple for Lord Dulverton at Oatlands, and a second on 
"The Eminence of Freemasonrv,"' given bv W. Bro. Dr. 
W. H. Hill, P.G.St.B. on the diamond jubilee of a Past 
Grand Alaster.

TENNESSEE— 1958 

144th Annual Comnninication — March 26-2J. 

Grand Master — ]\I.W'. Bro. James Walter Kerr. 

Lodges, 389 (2 U.D.) Alembership, 87,080. Gain, 1,676, 

Some 387 Chartered Lodges were represented at 
this Annual Meeting, and distinguished guests attended 
from 14 sister Grand Jurisdictions. Seven members 
of fifty or more years ^lasonic service were specially 
recognized. 

Under Necrology the Grand ^Master requested the 
Grand Chaplain, R.\V. Bro. W. L. Scott to conduct a 
brief memorial service in memory of 1,109 members 
who had died during the year. 

The Grand Master's impressions may be gathered 
from the following quotations from his address, — 

"I believe that Masonry in Tennessee, generally 
speaking, is in good co)iditio)i. The various Masonic 
bodies are working together harmoniously, a>id are en- 
deavouring to increase the loyalty and significance of 
Masonry to their initiates. We have had the finest 
cooperation from all of the}iL 

"The theme of my message to the Masons of 
Tennessee this year has been 'Not More Men in Masonry 
but More Masonry in Men. Certainly, we zcant all 
the good men in Masonry zee can get, but I am firmly 
convinced that if zve are to build zcell zve must put more 
Masonry in men a)id, zvhen zve do, zee will attract more 
and more good men into Masonry. 

"We should promote Masonic Education; the 
practical and theological effect of Freemasonry zcill up- 
lift and broaden the individual. 'High principles do not 
flourish automatically; they must be nutnred.' General 
Omar Bradley said, 'Humanity is in danger of being 
trapped by its moral adolescence — Man is stumbling 
blindly through a spiritual drakness zvhile toying ziith 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the precarious secrets of life and death — Ours is a world 
of Nuclear giants and ethical infants'. 

"We are living in an age of fear and anxiety; fear 
of nuclear bombs and rockets, of warfare more dreadful 
than the mind of man can conceive. Some tell us that 
there is no defense. But my Brethren there is. There 
is a spiritual force far greater than the force and power 
of any man-made bomb. 

"Tzventy-scven fine District Meetings were held and 
it zcas my pleasure to be present and speak to the Brethren 
at each of them; zvith but a few exceptions the meetings 
were zvell planned and zvell attended; some were out- 
standing." 

M.W. Bro. Kerr had words of praise for the Order 
of Rainbow Girls, for the Order of DeMolay for boys, 
and for the Order of the Eastern Star. 

Tlie Grand Master's references to Masonic Charity 
were brief and pointed, as the following sentences indicate. 

"Charity is one of the main pillars of the Order, 
and he who is destitute of that noble feeling is unworthy 
the name of Mason. 

"I am thoroughly conznnced the system nozv practiced 
in Tennessee far excels the system formerly followed of 
bringing the men. zvomen and children into a Home." 

The Endowment Fund Commission reports assets 
$1 1,137,900.83. ^laintenance and operation of the Home 
amounted to $77,083.33. Some 280 persons were cared 
for in 1957. 

The Grand Secretary reported the issue of one 
hundred and seven certificates and pins for presentation 
to 50-year Masons. He announced the receipt of 
$240,591.28 from Lodges and other sources. 

M.W. Bro. W. P. Douglas reviews Fraternal Cor- 
respondence and emphasizes True Fraternalism in his 
Foreword. His reviews include the Conference of Grand 
Masters, Conference of Grand Secretaries and the meet-

UTAH— 1958 

86th Annual Communication — January 27-28. 

Grand Master — ^I.W. Bro. Calvin A. Behle. 

Lodges, 31 (2 U.D.). Membership, 6,823. Gain, 197. 

The Grand blaster presided at two occasional com- 
munications for the laying of cornerstones and at one for 
the institution of a new Lodge. Thirty Lodges were 
represented at the Annual Communication. Bro. John 
Robertson was present as Grand Representative of the 
Grand Lodge of Canada. 

In obedience to the Grand Lodge Constitution, the 
Grand Master reviewed the activities for the year paying 
tribute to the various Grand Lodge Officers and com- 
mittees for duties well performed. He said, — 

"Utah Masonry needs new plans upon its Trestle 
Board if it is to go forzvard to accomplish still greater 
acJiicvements in line zvith those of the past." 

The Grand Master believed that the new Masonic 
Code, prepared during the year, would be a proper legal 
basis for planning, designing and acting. 

The Grand Treasurer showed receipts of some 
$21,350.57 and disbursements of $19,757.14. The total 
assets of Grand Lodge are 815,147.56. 

The Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. Clarence M. 
Groshell, made an excellent detailed report on finances 
and membership. 

The Grand Lecturer tries to visit all Lodges in the 
Jurisdiction, but cannot always accomplish this task on

the allocated budget. He reported that all Lodges, 
except two, had conducted examinations of candidates 
in all three degrees. Utah and many Grand Jurisdic- 
tions in the United States emphasize the examination in 
the third degree. 

The Grand Senior Warden announced that Grand 
Lodge had not been called upon for charitable assistance. 
Local Lodges were able to handle their own problems. 

Utah has a ]\Iasonic Foundation, which has the 
following "objects, purpose and pursuits" — 

"Generally to encourage charity and education and 
charitable and educational oitcrprises and undertakings ; 
to receive gifts, bequests and devises of property for 
charitable and educational uses and purposes; and to 
secure uniformity of purpose and of powers and duties 
of administration in the management and control of 
property so given, bequeathed or devised for charitable or 
educational purposes." 

Two youth organizations, Job's Daughters and the 
Order of DeMolay, are approved by the Grand JLodge of 
Utah, and it will make an effort to make the functions 
of these Orders better known among the constituent 
Lodges. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations recommended 
recognition of Guatemala and that Japan be delayed. 

The Annual Banquet was held on the evening of 
January 28, followed by the installation aand investiture 
of officers. 

William Ernest Gushing was elected and installed 
as Grand Master. 

The Proceedings conclude with a listing of Officers 
and Members of all Lodgfes.

Grand Master— AI.W'. Bro. Alton G. Wheeler. 

Lodges, 103. ]\Iembership, 18,439. Loss, 123. 

The Grand Master was deeply grateful for the co- 
operation and support he had received. He paid a 
fitting tribute to several brethren who had passed to the 
Grand Lodge Above, closing it with this poetical quot- 
ation, — 

"They zvalkcd the path the great have trod, 
The great in heart, the great in mind, 
Who looked fJirough Masonry to God 
And looked through God to all mankind, 
Learned more than sign, or zvord, or grip. 
Learned man's and God's relationship." 

This was followed by a report on his year's activ- 
ities, and the Grand blaster selected a dinner at North- 
field, attended by 200 members, as the outstanding meet- 
ing of his year. He was enthusiastic over the Grand 
Master's Conference, and spoke encouragingly about 
Masonic Charity. The Benevolent Fund exceeded 
$200,000.00 and the Grand Master thought there should 
be a permanent counsellor as to its investment. He 
favoured a blanket liability insurance policy in the name 
of Grand Lodge covering it and all constituent Lodges. 

The greatest problem of the age was presented by 
M.W. Bro. Wheeler in this quotation. — 

"At the present time when the conflict of ideologies 
is perhaps sharper than ez'er in zvorld history and u\hen 
the material side of life seems to override every other 
consideration, it is zvell for men and nations to reexamine 
themselves as to zvhat it is they believe. 

"It is not easy to do. Our material achievements 
are so impressive and our physical problems are so over- 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

whelming that zve tend to lose sight of the things that 
really count in life and forget the ancient truth that 'Man 
cannot live by bread alone'. 

"The great accomplishments of science and tech- 
nology may be said to be the material strength of a land 
such as America, and are the safeguards of human free- 
dom, and our strongest assurance that we can move for- 
ward constructively towards the kind of world we expect 
and zvant. Yet nations as zvell as individuals face the 
risk of a breakdown zvhen they turn azvay from funda- 
'mentals, when they feed only the body and not the spirit." 

The role of Masonry in world affairs is assessed 
in the following remarks. 

"Masonry is the brotherhood of all men under God, 
■and if zve are to serve and perform our high mission in 
this' zvorld we must truly unite all men and do it while 
permitting them to hold their own opinion in matters 
of religion and government. Masonry does not attempt 
to unite nations, sects or religious or political factions, 
■but it does unite men, and unites them zvhile permitting 
them to still hold their individual opinions/' 

The Grand Secretary presented a report covering 
almost ten pages, including statistics on membership and 
funds, dispensations. Grand Representatives appointed 
and approved and other matters. During the year some 
90 fifty-year veterans' gold lapel buttons had been 
approved for presentation. He lists some 36 secretaries 
of Lodges who have served 10 to 33 consecutive years. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations recommended 
recognition of the Grand Lodge of Japan but that requests 
of the two Grand Lodges in Sao Paulo, Brazil, be held 
in abeyance. 

Frank McCreary Brownell was elected and installed 
as Grand i\Iaster.

The Quarterly Communications of the Grand Lodge 
of A.F. & A.M. Victoria (Australia) are held around 
the middle of the months of March, June, September 
and December with the Grand blaster on the throne. 
R.W. Bro. W. T. Tucker, P.D,G,M„ Grand Represent- 
ative of the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province of 
Ontario, was present at all four meetings. 

At each quarterly the Board of General Purposes 
and the Board of Benevolence make interesting reports. 
The Board of Management of Freemasons' Hospital 
gives quarterly reports. During the year 1,574 patients 
were admitted and a total of 1,419 major and minor 
operations were performed. The Average Stay in the 
Hospital was 12 days. The completion of a new wing of 
the hospital has brought the capacity up to 115 beds. 

The consolidated Balance Sheet shows Assets of 
the Grand Lodge as £ 1,073,879, a considerable portion of 
which represents Benevolent Activities. The reports of 
the March quarterly are generally more detailed, leaving 
the impression that this quarterly assumes more im- 
portance than the others, especially those of June and 
September. In June the Grand Treasurer reported 
£1,003,929 as the total of Trust Accounts for Specific 
Purposes, and the Credit of the General Fund as £74,300, 

At each quarterly lists of "Exclusions and Restor- 
ations" for various reasons are given and the "Fraternal 
Dead" are duly reported. In December the Grand 
Master was nominated for another year's service, being 
the eighth year in succession. 

Bro. C. W. Davis, Grand Secretan.'. devotes about 
16 pages to his Report on Correspondence in dealing with

i8oth Annual Communication — February 11-13. 

Grand Master — M.W, Bro. Archer B. Gay. 

Lodges, 339. Alembership, 68,152. Gain, 750. 

For the meeting of February 11, 1958, M.W. Bro. 
Archer B. Gay, Grand Representative for Canada in 
Ontario, was on the throne. On the previous October 
12 he had issued a proclamation calling a Commerative 
Communication of the Grand Lodge of Virginia in 
Williamsburg, where the Grand 'Lodge had been inaugur- 
ated in 1778. 

Grand Master Gay's address on this occasion was 
an interssting, historical review of Masonry m Virginia, 
and he presented three plaques to the oldest Lodges, 
M.W. Bro. Gay introduced R.W. Bro. Whitfield W, 
Johnson, P.G.M. of Massachusetts, who delivered an 
excellent address on this Founders' Day Celebration. 
This paragraph is taken as a sample of his thoughtful 
treatment of Masonry. 

"Much emphasis has been placed by historians on 
the diversity of economic, social, religious and cultural 
interests and traditions and upon the prejudices and 
jealousies which pulled the colonies apart. It therefore 
behooves Masonic historians to point out the one common 
personal tie which bound a fezv men in each colony to 
each other in mutual respect, confidence and fraternal 
brotherhood." 

The Grand Treasurer's report showed total recepits 
of $340,155.98 and disbursements of $336,144.63, in- 
cluding about $40,000.00 for U.S. Treasury bills. 

At the Annual Communicaation ]\LW. Bro. Gay 
delivered a lengthy and informative report on his year's 
stewardship. He paid a fitting tribute to the fraternal 
dead, and was very pleased with the co-operation he 
received from all his officers, and especially his District 
Deputy Grand Masters. He made many visits in 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 129 

Virginia and several to other Grand Jurisdictions. He 
constituted two new Lodges and issued a dispensation 
for the creation of another. He praised the Virginia 
"Masonic Herald", and favoured more ^Masonic Research 
and Education. He has made quite an effort to 
develop benevolence, especially by making the Masonic 
Home of Virginia better known. The following 
quotation emphasizes the state of Freemasonry. 

"Freemasonry has, as a part of her mission, the art 
of teaching. We teach many things. We begin 
zvith the catechism of the Entered Apprentice Degree 
and progressing from that point, her votaries may move 
into the realms of profound philosophy. Ritualistic 
teaching, therefore, Jias an honored place in our plan, 
for it marks the point of the beginning of knowledge." 

lie concluded his address with hope for the future. 

"Let us be as men zvith a vision, as builders who 
see in the imperfect stone the walls of a mighty cathedral. 
Let us go forward into the future zvith the light of a 
holy fire in our eyes, as men determined to build anezv 
the' temple of tomorroiv by the deeds zvhich zve do today. 
Thus seeking, trusting in'lhe goodness of God and build- 
ing according to the plans laid down on the trestle 
board shall zve glorify the Supreme Grand Master in 
this zvorld and the next." 

Some 436 pages of the Proceedings are devoted to 
the Rosters of various Working Lodges, several to 
reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters, and seven 
to "In Memoriam." 

Earl Stanley Wallace was elected and installed as 
Grand Master.

Lodges, 280. :\Iembership, 69,285. Gain, 56. 

The Proceedings open with a biographical account 
of the Grand Master with special emphasis on his Masonic 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

interests. The following excerpts indicate the regard 
with which he is held by his brethren. 

"In the office of Grand Master he displayed bound- 
less interest and enthusiasm, an abiding faith in the 
inherent goodness of his fellozvmen, a devotion to duty 
that permitted of no favoritism or partiality, an eagerness 
to counsel ivith his brethren on all occasions and a 
willingness to assume responsibility at all times. He is 
totally devoid of all undue ostentation and his genial 
smile, gracious demeanor and pleasing personality have 
won him a host of friends everywhere." 

Only some 13 Lodges were not represented at this 
annual session. Among the Grand Representatives, 
M.W. Bro. Ford Q. Elvidge responded to the roll call 
for Canada in Ontario. 

The Grand Master's address was a factual report 
of his year's service and gave the impression that 
Masonry was in a healthy condition in Washington, and 
that the finances of Grand Lodge were excellent. Among 
his visits were meetings at twelve Lodges in Alaska. 

The total assets of the Grand Lodge are $3,182,015.13 
with no Liabilities. This sum includes $2,253,772.11 of 
the Masonic Home endowment Fund. 

The Grand Orator, V.W. Bro. Elmer C. Huntley, 
spoke on several facets of Freemasonry, emphasizing that 
Masonry is a movement that will never outlive its use- 
fulness because it calls men together on the level. He 
believes that participation, compassion and resilience are 
the three main ingredients which keep any movement 
alive. 

The Fraternal Correspondent, M.W. Bro. Fred 
Winkles, recommended recognition of Grand Lodge 
Swiss Alpine, and the Grand Lodge of the Netherlands, 
but urged that the requests of Gran Logia de Sao Paulo, 
Brazil, be denied and that no action be taken on the Gran 
Logia de la Republica de Venezuela. 

Thirty-six pages are devoted to the reviews of the 
Proceedings of many Grand Lodges, including an inter- 



t-RATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 131 

esing "Foreword". Rulings by the Grand Lodge of 
Canada (Ontario) are recorded, — on new building pro- 
grammes, and on the denial of the use of recordings in 
the ceremonies. 

The Masonic Home has 159 residents, 42 men and 
117 women, the average age being 82.25 years. A 
Special Committee of the Xeeds of Older ^Members made 
an interesting report urging generous consideraation 
of indigient Masons and their relatives. 

The report on IMasonic Research and Education 
showed much activity by the Committee. Some ten 
recordings of interesting addresses are available for distri- 
bution. 

Tlie Grand Historian, W. Bro. Robert B. Anderson, 
made a complete report on Lodges which have disappear- 
ed, or were consolidated with others. 

Dr. Frank M. Fulton was elected and installed as 
Grand Master for the ensuing vear. 



WESTERN AUSTRALIA— 1957 

Quarterly Meetings — August, November, February, May. 

Grand Master — Lieut.-Gen. Sir Charles Gairdner. 

Lodges, 302. ^Membership, 21,953. Gain, 392. 

The Grand Lodge of Western Australia was in- 
augurated on February 27, 1900, with a membership of 
some 2,000 which was increased to 2,584 by the end of 
the year. Since then there have been annual increases 
except in five years. 

The Alay quarterly also serves as the Annual Meet- 
ing of the Grand Jurisdiction. At the four quarterly 
meetings of the Grand Lodge, excellent reports are sub- 
mitted by the Board of General Purposes and the Board 
of Management of the Western Australia Widows, 
Orphans and Aged Freemasons Fund. 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Fund of General Purposes showed expenditures 
of slightly over £15,235 and a balance of £3,559. The 
Grand Lodge has around £288,552 in various invest- 
ments. The several benevolent funds contribute to the 
support of 38 children, 17 aged Freemasons and 87 
widows of Freemasons, requiring an expenditure of 
£ 10,485. 

It had been the procedure in Western Australia to 
circulate the Charity Box prior to its presentation to the 
candidate. In 195 1 the Board of General Purposes 
advised Lodges that it deprecated the procedure, and in 
August, 1956, the practice was expressly forbidden. 
Reduction of the embarrassment of the candidate is 
generally commendable ! 

During the year 274 Lodges were visited by Grand 
Lodge Officers and some 199 dispensations were issued 
for various purposes. Fraternal recognition was ap- 
proved for the Grand Lodges of Norway and Venezuela. 

The Grand Master was re-elected and proclaimed 
for another year. He named M.W. Bro. (Dr.) J. 
L. Rossiter as Pro Grand Master for 1957-58. 

Some 17 pages are devoted to the review of pro- 
ceedings arranged under various topics. Under the 
heading, "Nature of Freemasonry", ample quotations are 
recorded from the addresses of the Grand Master of 
Alberta and of M.W. Bro., Most Reverend W. L. Wright, 
then Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada 
(Ontario) .

sentative of the Grand Lodge of Canada (in Ontario).

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 135 

The Grand Master's Address gave a complete out- 
line of his various visits, decisions and dispensations. He 
described Masonry in West Virginia as follows, — 

"The brethren of this Grand Jurisdiction exemplify 
a high degree of morality and strength of character as 
they labor valiantly in the -cinyards of Masonic truth. 
It may be truly said that they have learned that the 
Plumb of Life admonished them to walk uprightly in 
their several stations before God and man, and to square 
their actions by the Square of Virtue. Such sterling 
qualities of manhood are uplifting to our generation, and 
a Mason w.ho is so possessed ivith these virtues, is likened 
unto a towering monument that lias strength to stand 
firm and intact against the forces of evil and the ravages 
of time. May each of vur brethren resolve anew to 
inculcate zvithin his heart and soul a greater desire to 
excel in the practice of Masonic virtue as he travels 
Life's pathway." 

He decided that the petition of one who has been 
rejected by another Lodge in this or any other Grand 
Jurisdiction may not be received until at least three years 
shall have elapsed except by the consent of the Lodge 
that rejected him. 

He also claimed that a brother Mason who owes 
dues is entitled to a Masonic funeral provided he has 
not been suspended for non-payment of dues. 

The Grand Master issued several edicts covering 
Un-masonic Conduct, on Illegally-made Masons and on 
Official Misconduct. These decisions cover some i8- 
pages of the Proceedings. 

Special Communications were held for four dedic- 
ations and one for laying a corner-stone. The Grand 
Master made some 29 visitations in West Virginia and 
eight ouside the State. 

The Grand Lecturer, M.W. Bro. Gilbert E. Griffin,. 
made an excellent report in which he condemned care- 
lessness in dress at Lodge Meetings in tliese words, — 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Informal and sloppy dress almost invariably insures 
informal and sloppy degree work." 

The Deputy Lecturers held eighty-nine schools of 
instruction during the year. 347 Worshipful Masters 
260 Senior Wardens, 246 Junior Wardens, 741 Past 
Masters and 1,630 Secretaries attended these meetings. 

The Masonic Home is evidently an excellent in- 
stitution. Total receipts for its maintenance were 
$77,883.88, all of which was disbursed except about 
$14,000.00. 

Wm. R. Loper, was duly installed as Grand Master, 
A bi'ef biography of the new ruler of the Craft forms 
the "foreword" to the proceedings. 



WISCONSIN— 1958 

114th Annual Communication — June lo-ii. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. AM. E. Anderson. 

"Lodges, 307 (i U.D.) Membership, 64,674. Loss, 125, 

Among the distinguished guests presented to the 
Grand Master were M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Grand 
Master, and R.W, Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary 
of the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province of 
Ontaria. 

Grand Lodge collects $3.85 dues per member or a 
"total of $265,483.60 of which $16,309.00 go to the Charity 
Fund and $156,566.40 to the Masonic Home Maintenance. 
Fixed assets of the Wisconsin INIasonic Home and 
Hospital property and the Grand Lodge Building are 
$596,162.47. The sum invested in various funds is 
$1,514,709.68. 

Wisconsin is very strict regarding alcohol. A man 
elected to receive the degrees was afterwards dicovered 
to be employed at a resort that sells intoxicating liquors 
and he dispenses beer and liquor at times. It was 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 135 

ruled that the Lodge had no authority to receive or act 
upon a petition from a person so employed. The Master 
had to decare the election null and return the fee. 

Two Hundred and Thirty-two recipients of Fifty- 
year Certificates are listed. The Grand Master present- 
ed one to a brother who had served 67 years. 

The incoming- Grand Master was left to perform 
certain duties among which were the appointment of 
several committees. One was to study the various 
District Deputy systems and to recommend to the next 
Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. Another com- 
mittee was to study and recommend in reference to the 
establishing of an endowment Fund for the needs of the 
Home. 

The Grand Secretary presented a complete report 
including lists of publications available for distribution, 
free and by sale, from his office. Some 23,600 Masons 
in Wisconsin subscribed for "The Wisconsin Freemason". 
The editors are highly commended for many fine articles. 
Master Masons receive this official publication without 
charge upon request. 

Several pages of the Proceedings are devoted to 
many resolutions and to grievances and appeals. 

Memorial Tablets and Markers were erected and 
unveiled by the Grand Master, one for the Masonic 
Home and one for the first Grand Tyler, Bro. Ebenezer 
Clewett. 

The Grand Lecturer was impressed by the im- 
proved floor and rod work, but indicated further need 
for improvement in many Lodges. He lists Proficiency 
Men in three pages and Ritualists on four. 

The Committee on Foreign Relations recommended 
recognition of the Grand J^odge of France if investig- 
ations proved favourable. The Grand Lodges of Sao 
Paulo and of Bolivia were favoured for recognition and 
exchange of representatives. 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Gilbert J. Schwartz was elected and installed as 
Grand Master for 1958- 1959. 

Over forty pages are used in the report of the Com- 
mittee on Foreign Correspondence. Several topics are 
considered and at the end a few Grand Lodges receive 
individual treatment. It is interesting to note quotations 
of considerable length from addresses of Grand Master 
Rev. E, C. Evans of Prince Edward Island, Grand 
Master Most Rev. W. L. Wright of Canada in Ontario, 
and Grand Master Rev. Arthur E. Coleman of New 
Brunswick. Great emphasis is placed on Masonic 
Education. 



WYOMING— 1958 

84th Annual Communicaation — August 25-26. 

Grand ^Master — M.W. Bro. Harold H. Saunders. 

Lodges, 52. ]\Iembership, 12,831 . Gain, 112. 

The Proceedings begin by recounting "A few Events 
in the Life of Floyd Holland", the Grand Master, elected 
and installed for 1959. This introduction is followed 
by reports of five Special Communications, three for lay- 
ing cornerstones and one each for the installation of 
officers and the constitution of a Lodge. 

The Annual Communication was held at Cody, 
Wyoming, and was presided over by the Grand Master. 
Among the distinguished visitors was Governor Mildvard 
L. Simpson. The Credentials Committee reported the 
attendance of 50 Lodges represented by 207 votes. 

The Grand Master's address was condensed to some 
seven pages, including a hst of the official visits to all 
Wyoming Lodges. Reference is made to 210 brethren 
who died during the year. The Grand Master issued 
13 dispensations and praised the History of the Grand 
Lodge of Wvoming prepared by the Grand Historian, 
Bro Dr. Walter C. Reusser. He also presented some 
2j *fifty-vear Masonic Buttons. He was greatly im- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 137 

pressed bv the Grand Masters' Conference in Washing- 
ton, D.C.' 

The Grand Secretary was honored by a surprise 
award known as "Big Medal of Honor" from the Grand 
Lodge of Germany. He reported that the Grand Lodge 
of Wyoming, in seventeen years, had contributed 
$78,916.18 to the Hospital Visitation Program of the 
Masonic Service Association, the current year's donation 
being $6,618.55. 

The Grand Treasurer reported total receipts at 
$29,457.65 and disbursements of 828,251.05. The Cash 
Balance in the bank was $27,387.09, and in addition, the 
Grand Lodge has $30,000.00 in U.S. Savings Bands. The 
total Assets of the Wyoming Masonic Home Foundation 
are listed as $197,741.11. The Grand Librarian showed 
a balance of $32.50 from his grant of $75.00. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Dead, 
quoted these passages of Scripture in an introduction to 
his report. 

"And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, 
Behold, tJie tabernacle of God is zvith men. He zvill 
dwell zvith tJicm, and they shall be His people, and God 
himself shall be zvith thcni, and be their God. 

"And God shall zvipe azvay all tears from their eyes; 
and there sliall be no more death, neither sorrozv, nor 
crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for former 
things are passed azvay." 

The Director of Masonic Education concludes his 
interesting report with a quotation from John Ruskin. 

"Therefore zi'hen zve build, let us think that zve build 
for eternity. Let it not be for present delight nor for 
present use alone, but let it be of such zvork as our 
descendants zvill thank us for; and let us think as zve 
lay stone upon stone, that a time zvill come zvhen these 
stones zvill be held sacred because our hands have touched 
them and men zvill say as they look upon the labour that 
zvrought them, 'See! this, our fathers did for us' ". 

The Committee on Fraternal Correspondence and 
Recognition reported favourably on extension of recog- 
nition to Guatemala and Japan. 



APPENDIX 

GRAND IVIASTER S BANQUET 

Royal York Hotel, Toronto, Ontario 

July 15th, 1959 



M.W. Bro. Archbishop W. L. WRIGHT: 

Most Worshipful Grand Master, DistingTiished Guests, 
and Brethren: For many years the Grand Master's Dinner 
has been the fitting culminatioi* of mutual fellowship and 
profitable deliberation with our Annual Grand Lodge Com- 
munication. Possibly the chief reason for this is that at 
the Annual Dinner v.^e are privileged in welcoming guiest 
speakers who are well-skilled in portraying the variooisi 
facets of our Masonic philosophy. We have such a 
distinguished brother in our midst this evening. The fore- 
sight and the wisdom of M.W. Bro. Martyn in placing his 
seal of approval on our guest speaker, Doctor Chable, is 
symptomatic, I believe, of the thorough manner in which 
the Grand Master has discharged the duties of his high 
office during the past two years. 

Our guest, R W. Bro. Doctor Chable, posse&ses outstand*- 
ing academic. Masonic, theological, civic and literary gifts. 
He was bora in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1920, where he received 
his public and high school education. He received his Master 
of Arts Degree and also his Doctor of Philosophy Degree 
from Columbia University. 

It is interesting to note that from the years 1954 to 1957 
he sei'ved on the staff of Hillsdale College, Michigan, being 
Director of Student Personnel and Dean of Men, and, 
possibly more important. Associate Professor of History, 
and for the past two years Dr. Chable has been the Acting 
Registrar and Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Rio 
Grande College, Rio Grande, Ohio. 

Doctor Chable's present position is Business Represent- 
ative and Public Relations Officer of the Venice-Nokomis 
Bank, Venice, Florida. I am sure you would all desire Dr. 
Chable to outline the terms of reference which mark such 
an illustrious position and tell us briefly what is involved 
in his present office. 

He, by the way, is a member of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. 

The Masonic record of Doctor Chable is most illustrious. 
I cannot begin this evening to exhaust all the Masonic 
offices which he has held, and which he now holds. He is 



APPENDIX 2 

a member of Newburgh Lodg-e, Cleveland, Ohio, a member 
and foraier officei- of Baker Chapter, Royal Arch Masons, 
Cleveland; member of The Knights' Templar and also the 
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, from the Valley of 
Rochester. He is also a 33° Mason, being a member of The 
Supreme Council of the Northern Jurisdiction of the United 
States of America. 

Our speaker has published many poems, sermons, and 
addresses. His gifts, one can see, are inexhaustible. His 
cai-eer has been incredible, and one can readily understand 
that the honoured destiny to which he has reached, is in- 
evitable. In all, he possesses a versatile personality and it 
is our distinct honour this evening to have him in our midst 
as he addresses us on the subject of "The Philosophy of 
Fi-eemasonry." It is my great pri\ilege and honour to 
present to you R.W. Bro. Dr. Robert Chable. 

Dr. ROBERT CHABLE: 

Thank vou. Most Worshipful and Most Reverend Sir. 
Most Worshipful Grand Master, M.W. Sirs, R.W. Sirs, W. 
Sirs, Wardens and Brethren all: It was with the keenest 
of expectancy that I anticipated the privilege and pleasure 
of coming here, not only to be with you but also to catch 
something at least of a bit of historical significance in my 
own family. 

From the time I was four years of age my grandfather 
trained me veiy strictly and was a great disciplinarian for 
the use of pix)per grammar and adequate speech. But he 
took his graduate work in theology here in Ontario, and was 
very proud to be an alumnus of McMaster University before 
it moved to Hamilton many years ago. 

I recall having heard him say, until the day he died, 
how much he thought of the Muskoka Lakes because that 
was the area in which he spent every one of his holidays. 
I have never had the privilege of seeing McMaster, where he 
went; I have never had the opportunity to see the Muskoka 
Lakes. But in any event coming here has given me the 
chance to re-live something of his life when as_ a boy he 
came from Wales and went to Bucknell in the United States 
for college, then to McMaster University for his theology, 
then to Morgan Park in Chicago. But I think there's none 
of you in the room can love Canada with a more passionate 
love than he did, 

I should like to say, also, that I am highly honoured, 
but somewhat dismayed, to be in the position I find myself 
because about eight months ago, or so, R.W. Bro. Dixon, 
your very capable Grand Sccretaiy, invited me to come with 
the approval of your personable Grand Master, but he said 



3 APPENDIX 

at the time, "we would like you to give the address which 
you gave at the Grand Lodge of Massachuss'etts a year or 
two ago. I promised him I would do so. But what happens? 
The M.W. Past Grand Master and present Grand Secretary 
would be here, Bro. Gay is here — he was there. Last night 
at the dinner I looked around and I think I see a half-a- 
dozen of you who have been either in Massachussetts or 
•othnr S'''ates and, of all these guests', I find there are only 
three of you in whose States I have not been before. So I 
would remind you that if anything seems repetitive to-night, 
my brethren, that in the Synagogue of The First Century 
Palestine tney said that "repetition is the soul of learning." 

Now, unless you take me too seriously and be unduly 
impressed, I want to share with you a story that Avill put 
me, at least, in your eyes, in proper perspective. It is, I 
think, my most delightful experience I have had thus fair 
in all of my Masonic travels which have taken me literally 
from Canada to Mexico; and this happened in the jurisdic- 
tion of M.W. Bro. Jones here, because some years ago at 
■Gooperstown, New York, where the Baseball Hall of Fame 
is, I had just finished speaking in the amphitheatre of 
Coopers Park, and my wife and I had returned to the old 
Saga Hotel there, and were just coming down the corridor 
about to go to the dining room for dinner, when a diminutive 
stature of man inished up to us and in great over-exuberance, 
said "Oh, sir, that was wonderful, that was magnificent, 
simply marvelloiis." He said "let me tell you sir, I'm from 
New York City and in New York every May on Ascension 
Day we have a great service in the Cathedral of St. John 
the Divine, and the Knights' Templar from all over the 
metropolitan area of New York attend it", and then he looked 
at me wistfully and he said, "oh, sir, I wish we could have 
you S'peak at one of those .ser\'ices instead of these awful 
jokers Vve've been having." I looked' at him rather steadily 
and I said "thank you very much, my brother; you might 
be interested to know that it was I who gave the address on 
that occasion last year." And then he recouped rather 
diplomatically and said "you know, sir, it's 601 feet long 
fi'om the narthex to the altar and I guess you were so far 
away I simply didn't recognize you and it was a case of 
mistaken identity." 

I had a very humorous case of mistaken identity that 
occurred about two years ago, and I think some of you will 
find it amusing. I told your Sovereign Grand Commander, 
111. Bro Simpson, about it last night because at the time 
I was speaking at their annual reunion dinner of the Scottish 
Rite Valley of Detroit and during the course of the afternoon 
and the early evening at various times I had at least eight 
different men come up to me and they all said the same 
thing, "oh, sir, you were simply marvellous in your portrayal 
of that role last night" and I'd say, "I'm very sorry, because 



APPENDIX 4 

I wasn't even here last night and it is someone else who 
should be receiving- your compliments." Well, the dinner 
progressed and they introduced the Sovereign Grand Com- 
mander of the A. & A.S.R., for the Dominion of Canada, who 
at that time was 111. Bro. Thomas Kingsmill Wade, and then 
in the introduction it was said that "none of us who were 
hei^ last night will ever forget his marvellous portrayal in 
that degree." Well, I turned to see who it was and it was 
your Sovereign Grand Commander, Thomas Kingsmill Wade, 
and if you know T. K. Wade and look at me you will find 
there's quite a disparity in our ages and he could be my 
father, but at least I found it hig'hly amusing that they 
thought it was I who had taken the part that the Sovereign 
Grand Commander of Canada had taken in the degree in 
Detroit. 

Now, brethren, I want to ask you to-night a very 
piiofound querition; I v/ant to ask you one of the most 
searching ciuestions' which can ever confront a Mason, and 
that is this: "What do you honestly believe is the real 
philosophy of Freemasonry?" 

Now you may think about this word "philosophy" what 
some people have said about psychology that says "psychology 
says what eveiyone knows in language which no one under- 
stands." And yet if I were to ask you what is your owm 
philosophy of life you might say "well, I guess I just don't 
have one." But you would be very wrong, for there is a sum 
total of things which you do believe and which you use as 
a guide to orient your own activities day by day, and for 
all practical purposes this is your own philosophy of life. 
But just as individuals have philosophies, so do institutions, 
and Freemasonry has one which is very definite — I ask you 
what you think it is ? 

Now in the next few minutes I want to suggest to you 
four basic philoifophies, each one of which is as old as' the 
dawn of reported human history, and each one of which is 
also as modern as tomorrow. As I would suggest them to 
you I would have vou ask yourselves, "is this the philosophy 
of Freemasonry," 'and the" first one is "The Philosophy of 
Power." 

Now the people who believe in this philosophy have a 
very simrde motto, and their motto is that "might makes 
right." This is the philosophy of eveiy dictator, of every 
tyrant, of every war-lord and every despot the world has 
ever knowm, the philosophy of Alexander the Great who 
wept because there were presumably no more worlds to 
conquer; it was the philosophy of Hannibal, who sent his 
elephants charging across the Alps; it was the philosophy 
of Julius Caesar, whose soldiers of fortune followed the 
eagles of Rome all over the Mediterranean world; it was 



5 APPENDIX 

the philosophy of Tamerlane, of Genghis Khan, whose Mongol 
hordes came crashing across the Asiatic steppes and caused 
the d'owTifall of the empire; it was the philosophy of Attila 
who gave the word "Hun" such a dread name in the English 
language; it was the philosophy of Torquemada and his 
infamous Spanish Inquisition; of Bismarck who prided 
himself on being called "The blood and iron Chancellor"; 
of Napoleon; and in our own day it was the philosophy of 
Hitler and Stalin and Mussolini. Every one of these I 
have mentioned lived and died believing in a philosophy 
— a. philosophy of power in maintaining that "Might 
makes Right." 

Hundreds of years ago a man by the name of Machiavelli 
wrote a book called "The Prince". You may have never 
heard of Machiavelli; you may have never heard of that 
book; but almost since the day it was written it has been 
a veritable bible for naked conquest and for triumph of 
brute force. And then in the nineteenth century in Germany 
there came along a German philosopher by the name of 
Friedric Nietzsche and he wrote a number of books, one of 
them called, in the English translation of it, "Man and 
Supei-man." Now this was long before the days of the 
contemporai'y strip character by the name, but Nietzsche's 
superman was that man who could successfully hold in his 
grasp ever-increasing numbers of people and absolutely 
and permanently control them. 

You may have never heard of Friedric Nietzsche or read 
his book, but two other men did and they were profoundly 
influenced by what they read there. The name of the one 
who read it was Frederick Engels and the name of the other 
was Karl Marx, and communism as we know it to-day is a 
direct outgro\vth of the influence of Nietzsche's book, of 
Marx and Engels who later published the Communist 
Manifesto. 

Is this the philosophy of Masonry, my brethren? No, 
because Masonry knows that if history proves anything 
that was ever said to be true, the words of His Lordship, 
Lord Acton, uttered many long years ago were true, for 
Lord Acton wrote that "power corrupts, and absolute power 
cori-upts absolutely." And this was woven into the warp 
and woof of the fabric of your own government. That 
lesson was' made so vividly clear to me last year as I sat in 
your ovTi Parliament in Ottawa and heard the debate going 
on and heard your own inimitable Lester Pearson represent- 
ing so eloqueiitly the loyal opposition and, as you know, in 
our o^vn country it is the very part and parcel of a system 
of checks and balances, so that in Canada and the United 
States no man or no small group of men can ever become 
too powerful, knowing that the more power that is con- 
centrated into human hands, the more likely those hands 



I 



APPENDIX 6 

are to be cornipted by it. And I suggest to youi that 
the philosophy of power can never be the philosophy of 
Freemasonry because we, as men and Masons, have learned 
well Lord Acton's lesson that "power cornipts and absolute 
power corrupts absolutely." 

The second philosophy that I want to suggest to you 
is "The Philosophy of Pleasure" and just as those who 
worship a philosophy of power believe that might makes 
right, those who follow a philosophy of pleasure and who 
make the worship of pleasui-e an absolute end in itself and 
who worship pleasure only for pleasure's sake, have their 
own creed and their own motto. 

Two thousand years ago on the streets of Ancient 
Greece and Rome there was a group of people called the 
Hedonists, and the creed of the Hedonists was veiy simple; 
"Eat, di-ink, and be merry; for tomorrow we die." And so 
the Roman people, as you know your history and as T know 
mine, cry more and moi-e for bread and circuses, a full belly 
and a good show, and they never realized how much of their 
freedom they were losing under imperial Rome. 

And then of course, hundreds of years later a Persian 
mystical poet came along and he did not say one thing differ- 
ent from what the whole Graeco-Roman Hedonists said 
hundreds of years before his time, but the Persaan mysticail 
poet, Omar Khayyam, in his Rubaiyat wrote: 

"And ere the cock crow, those who stood before 
The tavern shouted, "Open up the door. 

You know how little while we have to stay. 
And once departed, may retuni no more." 

Tn every age. in every celebration in every nation, thei'e 
are always those who are standing at the doors of the 
tavern shouting "Open up, you know how little while we 
have to stay, and once departed will return no more." 

A few years ago I saw one of the greatest examples of 
irony I have ever seen in print; it was in Life Magazine. I 
have never enquined, so I do not know, whether it was done 
deliberately or if it was merely a fortuitous accident. But 
in any event, as I opened that issue of Life there on the one 
side of a double page was a picture of a woman, a Avoman 
knoAATi to all of us in this room; she was garbed in an out- 
landish pseudo-naval costume and she was standing on the 
deck of a yacht anchored off the Cote d'Azur of the blue 
Mediten-anean Sea, and the caption under the picture, 
underneath it, said that she was standing there waiting 
to pipe aboard the members of what is known as the "inter- 
national set." And this woman who is known as the world's 
greatest party giver loves nothing so much as to tie a 



7 APPENDIX 

balloon to her bustle, come bouncing into a room, and the 
famouis Elsa Maxwell party has begun. And I thought, Elsa, 
I can get along without you all right. 

And then on the other half of that double page spread 
of Life Magazine was another picture^ — we have represent- 
ative® of the State here in which that picture was taken — 
it was a picture of a mother and a father sitting on some 
old v.'ooden chairs in the backwoods area of Marj'land, and 
they were surrounded by tv/elve fine looking children stand- 
ing in a semi-circle behind them. Why were their pictures 
in Life Magazine? Because even though in his entire work- 
ing lifetime that little old father in Maiyland had never 
made a salary of more than $80. a week, every single one 
of those twelve children had been put through college; some 
of them even had their Master's Degree — most of them did, 
and some of them had even achieved their Doctorates. The 
little .mother v/as asked, "how in the world on a salary like 
that did you do it?" And she said "Well, I telLs you sir, 
we skimped and we scraped something powerful over the 
yeai's, but we got the first one through. Then", she said, 
"we had one to help us get the next one through; then we had 
two to help us get the third one through and finally", she 
said, "Praise de Lord, we got them all through and," she 
said, "all through those years we ate an awful lot of stew." 

Now, brethren, I don't know what you think about stew? 
Maybe you think about stew what I think about cottage 
cheese, and I think it was cottage cheese, Archbishop, that 
the author of the Book of Revelation in the Bible was talking 
about when he called it "The abomination of desolation 
standing where it ought not." 

But in any event they had eaten an awful lot of stew. 
And I held the two pictures side by side, the world's greatest 
party giver, and on the next page a syinbol of terrible, awful, 
ungrowing sacrifice, and I said to myself, "here is a com- 
parison of values, here is a comparison in judgment; is the 
M'orld likely to be better off because of its present day 
Hedonists like Elsa Maxwell, Mike Todd, Tommy Manville, 
and ever so many more, or is the world likely to be better 
because of the humble, simple, sacrifice of those two little 
parents in the hinterland of Maryland?" 

And then a few years ago, of all places, the Headers' 
Digest came out with an article written by one who is 
supposed to be America's greatest showman, and he did not 
say in his article one thing different from what the old 
Graeco-Roman Hedonists were saying two thousand years 
ago, or what Omar Khayyam said in the Rubaiyat, but he put 
it into a good mid-twentieth century catch phrase, and 
hundreds of thousands of Americans, like so many parrots, 
begin to repeat it without thinking what they are honestly 



APPENDIX 8 

and actually saying. The author was Billy Rose, and the 
catch phrase was: "Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think." 

Now, my brethren, what is the difference between saying 
as the old Graeco-Roman Hedonists did "Eat, drink and be 
merry for tomorrow you may die", or saying with Omar 
Khayyam, 

"And ere the cock crow, those who stood before 
The Tavern shouted, "Open up the door. 
You know how little while we have to stay, 
And once departed, may retura no more." 

Or saying with Billy Rose in the mid-1950's "Enjoy yourself, 
it's later than you think." 

Now, brethren, it has never been so easy to do it, to 
follow the contemporary creed. All you have got to do is to 
use your religion that way, if you want to. The Hindu 
mystic concentration is on his nails, or on a point between 
his eyes and his forehead and goes through all soils of 
disciplines in his religion in order to achieve Nirvana, in 
order to attain that never-never land of perpetual bliss. You 
can use religion if you believe as the Hindu mystic does, 
that the world is the prison of your soul and the tool of 
your spirit, and then you can simply enjoy yourself in 
something like that, because you are more concerned with 
pie in the sky, bye and bye. 

Is this the philosophy of Masonry ? Do Masons worship 
a philosophy of pleasure? No, because if that were the 
philosophy of Masonry, my brethren, then we should be 
something other than Masons because we would be what 
those always are who worship at the shrine of pleasure 
only for pleasure's sake, and who make the worship of 
pleasure an absolute end in itself. If that wei-e the philosophy 
of Masonry, then we should be what these Hedonists are, 
parasites on the tree of society, sucking the sap, but gi\'ing 
nothing in return. 

The third one I want to suggest to you tonight and ask 
you is this the philosophy of Masonry, is the Philosophy of 
Withdrawal, of running away from life, and the people who 
follow this philosophy don't have a motto; they have a 
theme song and it's a theme song we all love to sing; it's 
all right to sing it so long as we don't live it, and that is, 
"let the rest of the world go by." In other words when 
life gets cold and tough and hard and cruel, and when you 
feel as if somehow this ever-increasing pace of allegro, 
which is the tempo of our age, has somehow got us caught 
in a maelstrom of activity and is sucking us down into its 
depths, when you feel that j'ou cannot keep up the tempo or 
the peace any longer, then the temptation is a I'eal one, and 



9 APPENDIX 

it's subtle, and it's the viper that crawls out of the fire and 
fixes itself to our hands, to let the rest of the world go by, 
to lain away from life. 

And there are many ways it's done today. I will suggest 
one — again it applies in religion. You see, if you believe 
that the world is the prisoner of your spirit, the tool of your 
soul, and you vv-ant to get away from it, there'll be a pie in 
the sky, bye and bye, or like the Hindu mystic does, you 
don't do very much to improve society around you where men 
live and have their being. That is why India endured a 
caste system for 5,000 years, and why those of us in the 
Sta-tes have poured millions into the Point-Four Programme 
to teach her how to do modem agricultural methods, how to 
industrialize herself, because you don't do much to improve 
life if you loin away from it, if your philosophy is one of 
letting the rest of the world go by. 

You can come all the way down the other end of the 
ladder and you can also do it other v/ays, and people are 
doing it all the time. You may again follow old Omar who 
said: "Come take the cup that clears today of past regrets, 
and tomorrow of future fears." In other words become a 
chronic alcoholic. Why does the chronic alcoholic become 
what he becomes ? Because he can't stand life any longer; 
he can't face it clearly and have the challenge of seeing it 
whole; and so he wants more than an>i;hing else to run 
away from life, to let the rest of the world go by, and he 
finds in his chronic alcoholism that old Omar knew just 
what he was talking about, and that it does for him just what 
it was supposed to do; it becomes a cup that clears today of 
past regrets and tomorrow of future fears. Chronic alcohol- 
ism is psychologically what we call an escape mechanism, 
an attempt to let the rest of the world go by. 

And there is one more way you can do it. You can 
today take in your hand the dread hypodermic needle, and 
you can inject it into your flesh and send into your blood 
strea,m the narcotic drug and become a narcotic addict. Why 
does someone become a narcotic addict? Because they 
cannot stand life any longer, they want to get away from 
it all, and so they use the narcotic to launch them into 
some limbo where nothing bothers them, and where they can 
let the rest of the world go by. 

Is this the Philo-sophy of Masonry? No, but some 
Masons are being bitten by it in other ways. M. Wor. Bro. 
White, my immediate predecessor, and John W. Barkley, the 
Grand Master of Ohio — I accepted an invitation to have 
lunch with him a couple of years ago at the Union Club in 
Cleveland, and he told me that he had just made a survey, 
and he told me that he didn't think Ohio was any different 
from any other State. He found that at an average meeting 



APPENDIX 10 

of a symbolic lodge, less than 5 percent of the members of 
the lodge were usually present. Many of us are becoming 
too concerned; we are clothing ourselves in our travellers 
drapes and are being glued to our television and our radio 
and our phonograph sets, and keeping our left-overs in the 
refrigerator — and now in the freezer — and who doesn't wish 
that they didn't keep so long? We are all becoming bitten, 
perhaps, in a subtle way, to let the rest of the world go by. 

Is this the philosophy of Masonry, brethren ^ No, 
because I think if it were, Masoniy could never give its 
resounding affirmative to the oldest question asked by 
ancient man, the question of Cain — "am I my brother's 
keeper?" You never solve a problem by avoiding it; you 
never improve a human situation by evading it; and the 
answer that we have always given, "yes, we are our brother's 
keeper," but you cannot be j'^our brother's keeper if you 
w'ant to let the rest of the world go by. The answer I think 
we find as men and Masons in the words of an old well- 
loved hymn: 

"O, Master, from the mountain side 
Make haste to heal these hearts of pain, 
Alone the restless throngs abide, 
O tread the cities' streets again 
Till sons of men have learned Thy love. 
And follow where Thy feet have trod 
Till glorious from the heaven above 
Shall come the City of our God." 

The City of God, my brethren, and the Kingdom of God. 
is never built by those whose philosophy is one of letting the 
rest of the world go by. 

Now my last one. This involves a word that I think you 
must have heard ad infinitum and ad nauseum. Both Bro. 
Oopus and I were discussing democracy and how people do 
not know what it is. Many people are talking about this to- 
day; they refer to it glibly but never bother to define it. My 
fourth and last one is "The Philosophy of Materialism." 

Now what do we mean by this? Let me give you a 
very simple definition: Materialism looks at a man in 
terms of what he owns rather than in tei-ms of what he is. 
In order to dramatize it I shall paraphrase a story: This 
man was a fai-mer, a particularly prosperous farmer, and he 
had tremendous land, I imagine good rich fertile muck or 
soil, and one day he looked it over and said, "Do you know 
Avhat I'm going to do on this land? I'm going to tear doAATi 
these barns and build bigger and bigger bams, raise more 
and more crops, hire more and more hired hands, until T 
have raised eveiy single bit I can and have it aH stored up 
in my huge new bams, and when that is all done I shall 



11 APPENDIX 

say to myself, 'now lookit here, buster, you've got all this 
stored up for your future security, take it easy.' " And, 
my brethren, he said it with the greatest life ever lived, 
and life turned on him and said an awful thing: "But fellow 
tonight, this very night, your soul is going to be required 
of you." Then came one of the most searing questions that 
has ever fallen from trembling human lips — the question — 
then whose will these be ? 

My brethren, this man for two thousand years of 
history has been known as the rich fool, and the question 
he was asked then is a question that will come to eveiy 
one of lis when one of two things happen to us, and I hopf; 
and pray to God that none of you will ever face what Mrs. 
Chable and I did a number of years ago when we found that 
there would be, because there could be, no children. And 
then you look at your sterling silver and look at your 
ci-ystal, and you look at all the other things you have, and 
an awful question hits — "whose will these things be?" 

Or you come to that period where time takes a silver 
brush in hand and paints your hair, or where your eyesight 
falters, and your hearing falters, and your steps grow weak, 
and then once more you face this. My wonderful saintly 
mother-in-law faced it for she was the wife of a small 
town country parson in up-State New York, and he always 
wanted a small town and country charge and not in the city. 
But in the first charge he had, his salary was $400. a year, 
and the people brought produce from the farms in for the 
parson's table and at Christmas they gave them an old 
fashioned but beautiful sideboard. I remember my mother- 
in-law, a year before her death, saying to me, "you know, 
we love our things because they always remind dad and me 
of the wonderful sheep to whom we were shepherd and 
shepherdess for so many years, and I wonder if my girls' 
will appreciate them as well as I do?" The nuestion had 
hit her — whose will these things be^ And should you, as I 
hope, my beloved brethren, \'isit our home in that golden 
peninsula of Florida, where you will be most welcome I 
assure you, you will see in our dining room an old fashioned 
sideboard, modernized a bit, but Ave like to think that 
mother would want to know it was there and that the girls 
understood the sacrifice it represented. 

And so, my brethren, is this the philosophy of Masonry? 
Does Masonry evaluate oeople in terms of what they ovm 
rather than in terms of what they are? No; but where is the 
proof? The proof that the philosophy of materialism has 
never been and is not now, and can never be, the philosophy 
of Masonry, is to be found of course where all things are 
founded in our Entered Apprentice Degree, for whether it 
be the king from the oalace, or the labourer from the cot, 
whether it is the millionaire or the pauper, everyone who 



APPENDIX 12 

enters our sacred p^oitals enters them the same way. He 
is divested of the same things, and is told that Masonry 
does not regard the outward appearance of a man; it's 
what the man is and not what the man owns that counts 
with us, and that is Masonry's answer to the false philosophy 
of materialism. 

So I told you, my brethren, I would suggest four 
philosophies tonight and I would ask you to choose which 
you believed was the philosophy of Freemasonry: The 
philosophy of power that says "might makes right"; the 
philosophy of pleasure that says "enjoy yourself, it's later 
than you think"; the philosophy of withdrawal that says 
"let the rest of the world go by"; or the philosophy of 
materialism that evaluates people in terms of what they 
owTi rather than in terms of what they are ? You don't want 
any of them, do you? For none of these is the philosophy 
of Masonry, — Then what is? 

My brethren, I have set up for you four strong men 
and have knocked ihem ah down; for the philosophy of 
Masonry is the only philosophy that has ever worked in this 
world; it's woi-king now, or will ever work in the future, and 
this is the philosophy of love. 

Now what do I mean by the Philosophy of Love? I do 
not mean that rather silly, puppyish, overly-sentimental type 
of thing that our grandparents called "sparking", then they 
called it "spooning", then they called it "necking" and in 
my teens we called it "pitching a little woo" and, today, 
take it from an ex-college Dean, you don't dig it that way 
any more, you now say, "let's play a little licky-face" — I 
found that out. 

I took some of my foiirier students on a conference 
trip with me to New York and, believe me, it was I who got 
the education. I used to say with great temerity to Mrs. 
Chable "honey, could I have a little kiss?" but you don't 
dig it that way any more, brethren, take it from an ex- 
college Dean who knows. Today in jive talk in this crazy 
age you say, "come on, babe, pucker up your chops and let 
me draw on them." 

Well, my brethren, that's not what I mean. When I 
refer to the philosophy of love I mean love understood as 
the real love can only be understood in terms of sacrifice, 
for real love always means sacrifice, whether it is the mother 
who takes God's hand in hers and walks through the valley 
of the shadow so that the baby can live. One of my friends 
who is now past sixty-five told me that one time the most 
vi\id picture he had of his mother was when there was 
almost no food to eat and the family was so poor at that 
time that he can remember her sitting at the table and 



13 APPENDIX 

saying simply "I guess I'm not just hungry" and making 
certain the children had the food. 

One sacrifices becavise one loves, and the greater one has 
the capacity for love in his heart, the greater the capacity 
for sacrifice, and this principle was enunciated for all time 
in the New Testament "Greater love hath no man than this 
that a man shall lay down his life for his friend," — because 
he loves. 

Years ago I sat in on an ordination of a young man 
and in his statement he said, "the cross was a symbol of 
how far hate could go;" and I talked to him, I said "young 
man, you have leaiTied only half the lesson and the most un- 
important half; come around and look at it from the_other 
side, for the cross is a symbol of how far love will go." 

And so, as Masons, we are not called upon to lay down 
our lives as dramatically as Jesus did on the cross, or of 
Joan of Arc at the stake, or Margaret Wilson whom you all 
know was tied to the stake in Solway Firth and was dro'nmed 
by the rising tide because she refused to deny what she 
believed to be time. There are ways we can do it, and I 
shall do nothing more than enumerate them. 

We practice the philosophy of love first in all of our 
Masonic homes, our sanatoriums, our orphanages, across 
the land. Secondly, we don't stop there because the New 
Testament said "But if you salute your brethren only, what 
reward have ye? what do ye more than others?" and some 
of the greatest things I have witnessed with my own eyes 
have been our Masonic charities where we lay down a little 
bit of ourselves. 

At the head table, here tonight, there is a Grand Master 
of a Grand Lodge sitting whose Grand Lodge some years 
ago took this injunction very seriously and they raised a 
fantastic sum of money to find the cause, and the cure, of 
rheumatic fever — I was proud to have been able to con- 
tribute to it — and today rheumatic fever is not the scourge 
that it once was; but do you know that it is not so because 
a Grand Lodge here represented tonight, devoted more than 
a million dollars to find the cause of it, and how to cure it. 

I know another Grand Masonic Body that, when it no 
longer needed its Tuberculosis Fund, developed a youth 
association movement, for youth associations, to help young- 
sters who will take your place and mine a generation hence. 

I discovered in my travels another Grand Masonic Body 
who have now started research into the cause and cure of 
Parkinson's Disease, and then I know from my o^^^^ exper- 
ience the five and one-half million dollar Loan Foundation — 



APPENDIX 14 

Educational Loan Foundation in my country, because in one 
yeai-'s time 1 saw $5,500. come across my desk for youngsters 
who couldn't finance the last two years of college, who 
wanted to go to college desperately and couldn't see their 
way clear, and I v.-as able to hand them cheques and say 
"Ron or Thelma" — and these are not fictitious names, they 
are real people — "some men who are Masons believe in you 
and this will see you through with their loan fund, with no 
interest till you graduate and then at a mere pittance." 

I often think, brethren, of a surgeon's knife being 
wielded in one of their hands, or a clergyman meeting our 
deepest needs, or a nurse ministering to the sick, or a 
teacher inspiring our children, because we made possible 
over a five and one-half million dollar loan. 

I sat in the Palmer House Hotel in Qiicago not long 
ago and I had read to me, letter after letter, from people 
Avho were going blind and whose sight has been restored, or 
blindness has been prevented, because of the new Eye 
Foundation. You know, we say: 

"I will lead the blind by a way they know not, 
I will lead them in paths they have not known, 
I will make dark as light before them and put 

things straight; 
These things will I do unto them and not forsake 

them." 

But how much bettor it is to save the children of light from 
becoming the children of dai'kness. And one can go on and 
on, but this will sxiffice. 

Your 0A\Ti Scottish Rite Supreme Council joined my 
Supreme Council and the Southern Supreme Council in a 
great research into the cause and cure of schizophrenia, the 
disease of the mind which fills one out of every four 
hospital beds on our continent, and some day a cure \\'ill be 
found if we work long enough and lay a little bit of our- 
selves down for those we love. 

And lastly if you, as men and Masons, believe in the 
philosophy of love, you will do more than just support our 
institutions for our oa\ti, and more than support charities 
for all mankind, you will also speak the truth in love for the 
truth needs to be spoken, and it needs to be spoken in love. 

I want to pay a great compliment to M W. Bro. Copus 
and all his colleagues in your Fraternal Relations Committee. 
I listened with gi-eat intere?'t to that report today and I 
came acix)ss this sentence which stinick me like a brand of 
fire: "But if by universality we mean that we shall accept 
wholesale those who claim to be truly Masoiuc but are not 



15 APPENDIX 

truly so, then God protect us from it." There is great wisdom 
in that sentence, my brethren, of your owv. Committee here. 
The truth had to be spoken. So often it needs to be spoken 
in love and sometimes, if we really live by it, we shall speak 
of truth in love fearlessly, and we shall remember the great 
tnith of what M.W. Bro. Raymond Park Ellis said in New 
York one time: "That some men in Masonry can destroy 
in five minutes by their actions what it has taken other 
men a lifetime to build." 

Let us think of our conduct, let us look well to our 
conduct, and remember to speak the truth also in love, for 
this is part of the philosophy of love. And when you have 
said it all, I think you can put the great lesson of Masonry 
this way: 

"I want to think when life is done 
That I have filled a needed post; 
That here and there I've paid my fare 
With more than idle talk and boast 
That I have taken gifts divine. 
The breath of life and manhood fine. 
And that I u^sed them now and then 
In the ser^dce of my fellow-men. 
I'd hate to think when life is through 
That I had lived my round of years, 
A useless kind which leaves behind 
No record in this veil of tears, 
That I had wasted all my days 
By living in only selfish ways. 
And that this world would be the same 
If it had never heard my name. 
I want to think when life is through 
That here and there there shall remain 
Some happier spot which might have not 
Existed had I toiled for gain; 
That someone's cheery voice and smile 
Would prove that I had been worthwhile 
And that I'd paid, with something fine, 
My debt to God for life divine." 

That, my brethren, is the Philosophy of Love, and that and 
that alone is the Philosophy of Freemasoniy. 



R.W. Bro. PITTS: 

M.W. Grand Master, Distinguished Guests, R. W. Bro. 
Dr. Chable: On behalf of this comany, Doctor, it's my 
very great pleasure to extend to you their grateful thanks 
for the inspiration that you have vouchsafed to us in this 
address tonight. 



APPENDIX 16 

It has been the high privilege of the Masons of this 
Grand Jurisdiction at the Grand Master's Banquet to listen 
to inspirational addresses, that they may carry back with 
them to their various lodges and remote parts, perhaps, of 
this great Jurisdiction, the thoughts and inspiration and the 
core of meaning of this great fraternity to which we belong. 

You have, I think, tonight, very effectively destroyed 
the four strong men that you built up, and you have left 
us with a great vision of the real heart and the real inspir- 
ation which we, as believers and as Freemasons, should be 
carrying on at the exemplifications in our individual lodges 
in the communities in which we are from, and we are very 
grateful to you, sir. 

I recall the words of one of your American quotable 
poems: 

"Give us great dreams, God, while Thou art giving, 
And keep to the end; it is enough if we 
Live by the hope, not falter in the li\'ing 
That lures us on from dust to dignity. 
Give us the courage of the soul's high vision 
Though its fulfilment here we never see; 
The heart to make and keep the brave decision 
And faith to leave the ultimate with Thee." 

You have done that tonight to us, doctor. This is not 
the first time I have met you, and it's been a very great 
pri\'ilege to meet you again. 

Dr. ROBERT CHABLE: 

M. Wor. Grand Master, may I say a word in reply to 
that? I shall not bore you. You know, this is an unusual 
occasion in more ways than one. I want to just say to you 
that you have been wonderful to me, just wonderful, and you 
have helped me tread on hallowed ground where my grand- 
father did. In the words of Moses: 

"Take off thy shoes from off thy feet 

For the ground on which thou standest is holy ground." 

But let me say it this way: 

"Life will always need a trigger 
Like a hammer needs a nail 
Like a doctor needs a patient, and 
Like a milkmaid needs a pail; 
Like a corned beef needs a cabbage, and 
Like the oyster needs a stew; 
Can't you see it all needs something 
So Canada we need you."
