sinned his experienced functious
as toast master, when the regula

eloquont speeches were made in
"The M "W Grand Lodgo of Cal
ifornia. Hawaiian No. 2, born
uuto hor, forty and four years
ago, renews its pledgo of filial obe
dience and unchangiug love."
W. F. Allon, P. M., delivored
tho following response:
Mr. Ohairmun and Brother Ma
boiis: The Grand Lodgo of Cali
fornia holdB a most tiuiquo posi
tion iu the history of masonry. It
was tho only Grnnd Lodgo west of
the Missouri ltivcr, somo two
thousand miles from any
other Grand Lodge. Its
momborship was mndo from Ma
sons hailing from almost every
Stato in tho Union, and it profited
by tho oxperionco of ablo .Masous
from tho East and South, so our
Mother Lodge became at onco al
most a model Grand Lodgo, car
ried on mont ably and strictly un
due tho best interpretation of ma
ThodecisionB of its committoes
ou jurisprudence have been quot
ed all over tho United StatoB, and
tho Grand Lodgo of California
has a very high reputation among
Masons, which it gained iu tho
first years of its oxistonce, and has
maintained and added to ever
since. Our Lodgo as one of its
ol lest c'nildioii No. 21 out of a
total now of -JH1 has a great deal
to bo gtnUful fur, as our Mother
Lodgo, after a good deal of dis-
mission, gr.iutoil on the 12th day :
of January, 1852, a dispensation to
thirteeu MnBtor Mns.ins, authori?.-',
iugt thorn to open a lodgo of Ma-;
Bomrin Honolulu, aud on the 5ih
lay of Alay, lb2, formally chart
ered Hawaiian Lodge No. 21 with
elewjn charter members of Amor
icon and English birth.
in granting this chartor sbo did
what wub never douo beforo or
since by any Amorican Grand
Lodgo, granted acharter to a
Lodge under Amorican jurisdio
tion,off tho Continout.This act must
always be considered by us as a very
great favor. She line always treat
od us with tho utmost liberality
and indulgence, allowing ub all
the licenso and iudependenco Bho
could undor good masonic law.
All Mnsons in tho Republic of
Hawaii should, recognize aud owe
allegiance to tho Giand Lodgo of
California, which haB done so
much to mako masonry what it is
in these Islands today.
May Hawaiian Lodgo No. 21
over iu tho future, as sho has in
the past, strivo to bo a dutiful
daughter of tho Mother Lodge;
romembtring what has beon done
for us, do all in our power to add
luster to our distinguished parent.
"Our Sister Lodges in thoso
Islands of tho Sea. We extend
to them a cordial and fraternal
greeting.'' This was coupled wih

"Our Past Masters. It is thoir
happy piivilege to bear wituess to
tho stonily growth and prosperity
of our lodge." Theo. C. Porter,
P. il., u'Hponded as follows:
W. M. and Brethren: I would
havo much rather somo oldor aud
un lie eloquent Past Muster woro
culled uiniu to answer thin toast
who could do greater justice lo tho
sentiment than it is possible for
mo to do, but I hnvo never yet
allowed a masonic (oast to go

too P. M.'s of this Lodgo are
pleased highly pleased to wit
noss tho gteat ptosperity of our
order, not ouly in Honolulu but
throughout the length and breadth
ot tho civilized woild. It was iu

ed the idea of changing oporativu
masonry to speculative masonry,
and muking tho perfection of
woikmanship iu materials apply

change was wrought our anciout
brethren builded bottor than thoy

and anticipations could never havo

It was then that modern masonry
was born. This great house of
modem and intellectual masonry
was not made of light aud trans

sand, but it was asolidbquaro aud

Grand Architect himself, and its

"Our Retiring Master Hawai-

has labored at his post and in

proved a full twelvo dozen." Dr.
Grossman made a happy rosponse,
pledging his continued effort for
tho interests of the lodge. The
officers for tho past year had
workod togethor harmoniously,
which was tho chief reason that
tho lodgo had prospered so much.
Bro. Wm. H. Wright Bang
"Our Master Elect As a mark

that tho ctedit of onr lodge is safe

would do their best to promote
the welfato of tho lodgo.

"My best girl's a corker."
"Our Visiting Brothron. Come

Chas. W. Day spoke in roply of
tho hearty wolcomo ho had ro
coived ou his arrival at Honolulu,
and told tho story of how ho came
to join tho masons.
Whou tho regular toiiBts had
boon disposed of, tho toast mas

now Worshipful Master. Volun

Among tho BpeakorB woro Bros.
Spalding, Derby, Dole, Davis and
Hassingor. Toasts were given to
"Our Now Mombois," "Tho La

M. Hassingor in tho conrso of tho
informal proceedings delivered tho
In tho history of Freoniaoiiry,
instances aro not wanting where a
brother has boon known to risk
his life in emorgoncy and fre
quently al a moment's warning to
save that of another. In illu Ira-
innate modesty winch eer
characterizes him, he bogged mo
not to mention Ihf niaiiei, h lfj
did not seek Hpplauso for doing
what ho simply cousideitd an act
of duty. But he is not 1-ore now
to blush ar unsought for commen
dation aud 1 do not think it either
just or fair to keep the matter
longer a secret. You ftre nwaro
perhaps that nearly a year ago 1
was forced, by failing health, to
seek rest and change in a trip to
Culifomia. I took pannage iu tho
bark Albert, a beautiful clipper,
under thocomniaud of our biother,
Captain Thomas Griffiths. I was
the only passenger aud during the
first part of tho voyage 1 was
weak and weary and took but littlo
interest iu my surroundings, al
though tho Captain was kind
ness personified and did every
thing in his power lo nronso
and oncourago me. After n
while, however, the increasing
coolness of tho bracing sea air
had its effect and 1 boan to feel
my strength and spirits returning
and roou 1 loved to paco tho deck
or lonue in home comfoitnblo
spot, watching our beautiful ship
speed hor course tbrou-jb t''o
wild waslo of v.aten, v.Mh.v.iy
sail spread to tho swift northerly
broezo. Moro particularly did J
i oujoy tins watching during tho
night hours, and as the vessel's
quarter deck was only guarded by
n low rail, I used to stretch a lino
of tho light inaiuskysail halyards
I lrom the rigging uheio it win bo
j layed, to a stanchion on tho rail,
further aft, aud loaning upon
1 this for support, I would look
, d'!.ui upon tho surging waters or
over to the starlit horizon and, as
j wo glided along, would build
phantom ships in tho cloud banks
that ' lined tho distant sea.
One night Ah ! how woll I re
' niembor it I was loaning droam
' ily ngniiibt my impiovi-ed bfo
i lino and looking doivn upon the
I cieamy foam which surged along
i our side, the phosphorescent light
Hushing through it iu starliko
forms, liko showers of bright dia-
monds on drift of snow. E.xcopt
for the sound of rushing waters
and tho occasional creak ot somo
block, complaining of tho strain
of tugging canvas, all was silent.
Tho short, stout form of our cap
tain, with light tu-uvl, svvnpt back
aud forth along the daikoned
deck, his presence doiiund by the
glowing light at the tip oE his
cigar. Tho man at the wheel waa
tho only human form in Bight und
hiB figure was clearly outlined by
the binnaclo light. I turned from
my contemplation of tho son aud
looked aloft through tho groat mass
of towering cauvas, past topsails,
top gallant Bails, royal and Bky
sails, to tho myriad of beautiful
stars, which seemed to haug just
above tho trucks and which at
times it sonmed as though tho
swaying mast tops might dislcdgo
from their invisible hangings.
Suddenly in tho midst of my
dreamiugs I folt my ropo support
givo away aud without a moment's
warning I was plunged backward
over tho sido of tho vessel and as
I struck the foaming water I saw
the black glistening Bide of our
vessel speed past mo. Ohl how
thoughts do crowd tho brain in
such a moment a moment with
out hope ii moment whon all
seoiiiB hopelessly lost. How far I
sunk, I cannot realize, but It
soemed as though I never could
reach the snifiu-o again. It infty
