tion. At a recent Impoitant Masonic event Fast
Grand Master Myrou M. Farker was requested
to make an address embodying his impressions
of the various countries he visited during his
late European trip. Tuc Heu.u.d's MaiTonic
correspondent, who was present and heard the
-address read, determined to secure it for publi
cation, and after continued efforts has at length
been successful, and to-day prints the first ex
tract. In future editions other extracts will
appear and will undoubtedly prove highly in
teresting to the fraternity and general public.
The historic points of England, Ireland, and the
Continent are all mentioned, while his descrip
tion of the "Passion Play" is exceedingly
graphic and interesting:
'A trip to Europe is now regarded as a com
mon incident in life. On shipboard well-bred
people rarely ask if you are making your first
voyage. Instead they ask what sort of weather
you Had when you were over last or the name of
the ship you went on; was there much foe and
how many icebergs did you see? A few years
ago from twelve to twenty days were consumed
in crossing the Atlantic, now" usually from five
to seven. Theu the best vessels offered only
ordinary conveniences. Now all lines have ships
fitted up in the most luxurious manner. One of
this class and the finest on the ocean is the Teu
tonic, of the White Star Line. It was on this
boat that, in company with Dr. Sowers, I was
"fortunate enough to obtain passage. Life on
an ocean steamer of this kind with fair weather
is simply delightful. After a morning bath one
breakfasts from b to 10. When the usual cigar
has been enjoyed in the smoking-room one seeks
the comfort of a steamer chair, where with the
easy motion of the steamer you soon find your
self lost to every earthly care. No telegrams
-can be received, no creditors in sight, "lou do
not even have to think, and thus in this dreamy
condition you fall asleep, only to be awakened
refreshed by the passing ocean breeze. Lunch
is served at 1. After lunch the usual games on
shipboard are engaged in, such as pitching
quoits, shuffle-board, etc. Dinner is usually
had at 0 o'clock, but before this it is the custom
to promenade the deck for exercise and to
sharpen the appetite. If one is fortunate enough
to have his wife with him of course he prome
nades with her, but if ho hasn't that pleasure he
usually finds some other fellow's wife whose
husband has been good enough to remain at
home and look after the children, or some one
of the numerous pretty girls that are always on
board and anxious to hang on some gentleman's
arm just to keep from being pitched overboard
by the roll of the vessel. Every one has heard
of the celebrated Liverpool docks. On a straight
line they would extend miles and thuy cover
acres of ground. Standing on one of these
dock's I recognized in the distance our distin
guished friend and brother, Maj. McCammon.
1 noed hardly say that the greeting he gave me
was most cordial. After the usual delay in the
Custom-house we dined at the Great Northwest-
eru, and immediately thereafter we took the
boat for Belfast by way of the Irish Sea. Those
of you who have crossed the English Channel
can form sorao idea of the Irish Sea duiing a stiff
breeze on what is known ab a side-wheel Belfast
lxat. I have never wituessed a sicker crowd
than I saw that night. Indeed, the thing jumped
around so that Maj. McCammon declared it
would 'hop out from under us and leave us
there.' V o were up early in the morning that
wo might get a view of the Irish coast as wo ap
proached Belfast. The scene was beautiful, the
rising fields being of the brightest green, while
here and there could be seen homo mm or
ancient castle. No name could bo more appio
priato to this country than the Emerald Isle.
Much might bo said of the city of Belfast, a
great progressive, pushing, manufacturing city.
The linen markets of the world are supplied
from these manufactories. We had the pleas
ure of being ebown through one by Bro. ThomaB
Valentine, the Deputy Piovlneial Grand Muster
of Ireland and father-in-law of Bro. McCam
mon. On the fourth day wo left on a coaching
paity, which had been at tanged by Bio. Mc
Cammon, around the coast of Antrim to the
Giant's Causeway. The route most of the way
skirted the Irish Sea, and us the weather was
pleaeant the trip of three days was most 'de
lightful. Wo were much interested in visiting
one of tho most ancient castles In Europe,
known as Dunloce Castle. Wo also passed the
celebrated Carricka Becdo Bridge. Our first
night was spent in Cushen Dall, wliish afforded
us a fitio opportunity toseoltish tenantry life,
and while these people live in little cabins and
burn bog for fuel they 6eem to bo contented.
Tho next evening wo dined with Bro. Weckfield
Dixon, ono of tho 1'tiuco Masons of Ireland, at
his summer resideuce, on tho heights of Antrim,
overlooking the sea. Wo left the tablo at about
- 3 o'clock iu the morning and many a bumper
was drank to tho Masons of Washington. Be
fore we returned to Belfast wo viblted tho
ancient city of Londonderry, on tho banks of
tho Boyne, where occurred the celebrated Bat
fcle of tho Bovne. iu which William III was vic
torious, ami u ' whoso patronage tho Order
a( tl ( ) 'tig ii !s said to havo had Its origin.
Dublin, lht pin al and most beautiful city of
Ifumi, wjfuu. . very uttractivo aud pleasant.
Th- ftm-u am i j .ul, tho buildings old and im
m,mij'. ortiuj, i .the season of the year, all
M n '.Jiiblu (called off, so that wo did
not havo the pleasure of meeting with nny or
ganized body. We, howevei, visited Masonic
Temple, a building far superior to our own, tho
various rooms of which were furnished and
fitted up similar to those in the Temple at Phil
adelphia. The contrast between this templo
and Masonic Hall in BeVast was marked.
There the room Is about as largo as two of our
ante-rooms, and In a building that has been
used for that purpose many huudreds of years.
It was tho quaintest little place I over saw.
Every night Bro. McCanuuon had arranged a
bauquct, around which gathered the Prliico
Masons of Ireland, who, from Information ob
tained from McCammon, seemed almost as
familiar with Masonry In Washington as I did
myself You can therefore readily imagine
how heartily we drank the toasts to the various
organizations and individuals in Washington.
It was a matter of surprlso to theso gentlemen
that in comparison with their own limited
number we had so many Masons in America,
and they could hardly realize that in a Knights
Templar parade twenty-three thousand were in
One of tho Richmond papers speaks thus of
Bro. Roomc's recent visit to that city during
the Scottish Rite reunion: "William Oscar
Roomo, 3;i, Second Grand Auditor of tho
Supremo Couuctl and Secretary of tho Royal
Order of Scotland iu the lilted States, accom
panied by Dr. Aaron Baldwin, 32, arrived in
Richmond yesterday to attend the Scottish Rite
ceremonies iu St. Albau's Hall. Brother
Roomo is at the head of two of the local bodies
In Washington, and is ono of the most accom
plished Masons in the United States. He was
high, in his praise of tho work of the afternoon,
and last night tho 30th degree was con
ferred in elaborate style, the ceremonies con
suming three hours. Rev. Bro. Cartnichael. tho
Commander, presided In tho first and second
apartments, and, on his invitation, Bro. Roome
presided in the third and fourth." A large
number of Washington Masons arrived Iu Rich
mond Tuesday afternoon, among them being
United States Senator Dolph, John 11. Olcott,
narrlson Dingmau, Hamilton Rothrock, and
many other distinguished Masons of the Capital
The visitations for the past week were all

nesday night Columbia Chapter No. 1 was
visited, the convocation being held iu the
asylum. A very large attendance greeted the
grand officers, who thoroughly enjoyed tho
musical programme rendered by Companions
Lillebtidge and Whittle and tho address of
Companion Dr. Hamilton E. Leech. A pretty
incident of the evening was the presentation of
lloral emblems to the M. E. G. H. P., Ed S.
Holmes, Hamilton E. Leech, and C. W. Ben
nett, and a surprise was prepared by Eureka
Chapter, who presented through the R. E. G.
Lecturer, James H. Trimble, a beautiful basket
to Columbia Chapter. At the close of the cere
monies a banquet was served in the adjoining
room. On Thursday evening Mount Horcb

usual style of hospitality, the week's visitations
ending on Friday evening with an elaborate
enteitaiument in Eureka "Chapter No. 4, pre
sided over by M. E. Companion Orville Drown.
The programme at the grand visitation in
Eureka Chapter Friday night was as follows:
The visitation was made by the E. Deputy G.
H. P.. A. McKeuzio. After the usual reports
were made by the Grand Secretary and Treas
urer, and music, the chapter was entertained
by an address by Comp. W. B. Powell, a mem
ber of Eureka Chapter, on the public schools.
Comp. O. T. Thompson presented the acting
II. P. with a fioral offering, and Comp. J. L.
Johnson performed a similar pleasant duty to
the orator of the evening. P. II. P. Dingman,
on behalf of Columbia R. A. C. No. 1, pre
sented in a few very neat remarks a basket of
flowers to Eureka 11. A. C, as a token of tho
fraternal feelings in which the members of
Eureka Chapter were held by those of Colum
bia, which was responded to by the M. E. II. P.
of Eureka Chapter. The E. II. P. of Eureka
Chapter surprised the M. E. G. LI. P., E. S.
Holms, by presenting him with a beautiful sil
ver pitcher." The clTapter was then called to
