The Grand Canton excursion to Bay Ridge on
Wednesday was tho largest that has gone to this
famous resort from Washington this season.
Tho success attending tho excursion was due to
the management of Capt. R. A. McLean.
Tho Grand Canton met on Saturday evening
and mustered Chevaliers Caton and Litchfield
in Canton C. It would appear as though all
tho activity thero is in the Grand Canton is em
bodied in the membership of Canton C, Capt.
Shackelford commanding. It is hoped that a
friendly rivalry will he at once started in Can
ton A, B, aud D to take from Canton C the
honor of belug tho best drilled canton.

Only routine business was transacted at this
session. Peace and harmony prevailing among
tho Patriarchs, tho duties of the late Graud Pa
triarch F. A. Norway wero comparatively light.
A very marked increase in tho number of
members and interest in tho manner of confer
ling tho degrees was tho result of his supervi
sion during tho past year.
Tho principal business occupying tho atten
tion of tho Graud Lodgo was presented by tho
committee of supervision, consisting of B. F.
Crawshaw, (chairman,) James Hughes, and J. E.
Crainpton. Relative to extendiug tho term of
subordinates from six to twelve months, it was
submitted to tho lodges to como up for action
at tho Jauuary session. The subject of creating
a new standing committeo to bo called tho
"committee on tho state of the order," also
took tho samo course. To havo hut ono regular
meeting of tho GrandLodgo, to beheld in Janu
ary, met tho samo fate. Tho matter of assessing
every member of tho order in tho jurisdiction
twouty-llvo cents upon tho death of a member
in good standing was also referred to tho subor
dinates. Tho list of Past Grands heretofore
published in the printed proceedings is to bo
augmonted by tho names of all members of tho
order Juno 30, 1890. Tho Grand Master's action
in granting a dispensation to elect a brother to
au elective office in his lodgo, not having pre
viously served in an appointed office, was de
clared legal and proper. Tho committeo on
appeals submitted a majority and minority re
port in tho caso of Wormersloy vs. Friendship
Lodgo No, 12, which was finally held in aboy
anco until tho lodgo is legally notified of tho
appeal. Tho amendments to tho by-laws of
subordinates, after favorable examination by

tho Grand Mtstor, to tako effect from date of
