THE GARDEN ISLAND.
The Loyal Order of Moose a
social, beneficial a n d fraternal
order which during the past few
years has had phcuominal growth
throughout the U. S. and Canada
and which has grown to a mem
bership of 500 in Honolulu in the
last four weeks and which will
surpass the 1500 mark before the
1st. of the year will be organized
on this Island in the next few
weeks. Through an interview
with Organizer L. W. Long it was
learned that Dept. Organizer Thos.
F. Lund will come to this Island
about Dec. 10th., to begin work
The Loyal order of Moose was
organized in Louisville, Kentucky,
April IZ, 1883. It was founded by
Some of the most prominent busi
ness and professional men of that
city. Dr. John H. Wilson was in
strumental in the foundation of
the order and to him is due the
credit for the first Moose ritual.
Some beautiful lectures of the ori
ginal ritual are still in use. The
growth of the lodge in its early
history was slow, and not until
the eighteenth annual convention
u t Crawfordsville, Indiana, i n
1906, did the lodge assume a
national growth. At that time
James J. Davis of Pittsburg was
given the' toga of supreme organ-,
izer, and since then its growth has1
been a rapid one.
It is estimated that 25,000 mem
bers of the order attended the
twenty-second annual convention
at Baltimore, held the last week in
August. One thousand one hund
red and fifty-four delegates at
tended the convention.
At this time there are 400,000 or
more Moose in the United States
and Canada divided among 850
lodges, without counting the new
one in Honolulu and Moose lodges
are now found in all of the im-

The Loyal Order of Moose is
purely a fraternal organization; it
carries no insurrance, but pays a
benefit ot seven dollars a week in
sickness or accident, together with
a funeral benefit; each subordinate
lodge provides for free medical at
tention to members and their
families. The social feature is its
main object; at regular intervals
dances and other entertainments
One of the important features of
the Loyal Order of Moose, is the
athletic features. To show their
interest, and to give encourage
ment, the Supreme Lodge, at the
last annual convention held ,in
August at Detroit, Michigan, gave
away $7500 in cash prizes to the
Moose athletes. It is the aim of
every chapter of this order to have
n connection with their well
equipped club rooms, a gymnasium,
where young and old alike can
participate in gymnastic sports,"
and where those interested in box
ing and wrestling, or other sports,
may prepare themselves, not only
for the entertainment to be given
at each regular meeting, but for
"The Loyal Order of Moose
does not attempt to develop one
part of man's nature to the ex
clusion of another," says Organ
izer Long. "The ritual of this
order is short, snappy and interest
ing. No one could add to the
scope of its meaning by lengthy
verbosity. Morality is a requisite
and no higher moral standards are
However there is just as much
interest in the social and physical
development of members as in
the moral standing."

They possess every
feature necessary in the
making of good gar

FARMERS ARE LESS
When the first census of the
United States was t a k e n 97 per
cent of the people were farmers.
The census of 1910 shows that i
now less than 35 per cent of our
people live on farms.
A hundred years ago there were I
very few tenants.
Tenantry was unnecessary, Ih.
cause there was plenty of land for
everybody free for the asking.
Today there are nearly three mil
lion tenant fanners, who with their
families make up fifteen millions
Homeless people, so far as any fix
ed abode is concerned.
A hundred years ago it cost little
to build a house, for the house on
the frontier was invariably made of
logs or sod.
The neighbors turned out and
helped the newcomer build his ca
bin, which cost practically nothing.
Today a house is built of $40 per
thousand lumber and the cost of
feal estate is so high, where in the
country or city, that only the well-to-do
can build houses. All others
A hundred years ago the tools
used by the farmer were simple
Today i t requires expensive
machinery to operate a farm. This
machinery and the tools which the
farmer uses are made by trusts,
chief of which are tlie steel and
