Paul Neumann as Toastmaster.
Unity First Sentiment.
Lodge lo Progrcs, of the Mystic Tic,
Installed Itself at the Masonic Temple
last evening by gltlng a grand ban
quet -with about 150 covers. Ouests
Included members of Hawaiian and
Pacific lodges and brethren from
abroad. Lo Progres Is the oldest
lodge here. Jts'master,. Mr. C. M.
White, announced as toastmaster Mr.
Mr. Neumann said that ho had tried
to excuse himself, from tho pleasant
task assigned, but had consented to
act on account of his aloha for le Pro
gres. He did not like this thing of be
ing made toastmaster, because he was
compelled to Bpeak on topics not chos
en by himself. Mr. Neumann wished
loTrogres prosperity and good social
times in tho now home. After a num
ber of laughter provoking references,
tho toastmaster called upon K. I.
Spalding to glvo the address of wel
come to lo Progres.
Mr. Spalding said ho was more than
happy to have the pleasure of welcom
ing the veteran lodge to the local tem
ple. Ancient brethren were glad to
meet In hills and vales. Now preten
tious edifices aro require!. It Is fitting
to celebrate tho advent of lo Progres
o the new temple. The hope Is that
it will bo happy and prosperous. Social
relations have existed between Ha
waiian and le Progress. All congrat
ulate le Progress on her prosperous
-.condition! swelling membership and
bright prispects. All should be care
fuWo maintain tho high standard of
menWrfTilp, to the ond that the
frlenSKlow of tho order In Hawaii
nel rnko undiminished.
UnljKlarcnce M. White, master
of lo tttes. Tho speaker opened
with aKOt pretty Imagery applicable
to the allegiance of the three Masonic
lodges In Honolulu. Ho described
three streams, having widely different
sources but coming finally to a conflu
ence with ono lumo and one
strength. There are hero three Ma
sonic streams centered In this temple,
with headquarters variously In Scot
land, Franco and California. All are
now bended In work for the general
welf? . -with no friction, with no riv
alry; .ve the rivalry of unity. The
spcaj f said It would be the proudest
recollection of his career as a Mason
that this union was effected whtlo he
was at tho head of lo Progres, when
the great step in unity was made. Mr.
White called on all to rise and closed
with this sentiment: "May brotherly
loo prevail and every moral and so
cial virtue cement us." Thero were
responses of "Amen" nnd "So mote
Mnsonry Past and Present in the
Hawaiian Islands E. P. Dole. As to
tho present all can Judge by tho unity
and tho good feeling shown at this
A great part of life is the
happiness we get out of It, but not,al-
together the Joy of such occasions as
tho prcsont. Our order Is a groat In
lluenco nnd power for good. This orrt
cr is founded in something better than
King Solomon's Temple. It has grown
from tho kindly nnd Just feelings In
human hearts. The social problems
of today aro many. The ministers tell
they can be solved through the church.
But there Is a quiet, secret power. It
In Masonry. There nro 75,000 of the
brethren In the United States sworn
to aid In tho propagation of principles
of human brotherhood, based on the
teachings of Christ. Thero aro other
orders working along the Bamo lines.
These thoughts and theso works are
Masonry of today and Masonry of tho
Masons that are Gone, but Not For
gottenJohn A. Hasslnger. Let us
look back to the days when Masonry,
tho handmaiden of religion, set her
searchlight in the Islands. That was
in 1813, when lo Progres was insti
tuted by ship captains and others.
Then camo Hawaiian Lodgo In May,
1852 Lo Progres, which had lapsed
soon after 1852, revived again. In 1895
Pacific was organized. Now tho order
stnods here firmly wed with goodly
nu .libers for truth, charity and love of
feMowmen. All of tho original mem
bership has passed away and many of
tho men of later days have gone. Some
of theso aro burled In foreign lands.
Some of the best ' remembered nro
Meer, Davis, Irving, Cody, Macfarlane,
Knmehamcha IV, A. J. Cartwrlght, Ka
lakaua, John O. Domlnls, Wllley and
others. Of all it may be said Gone,
but not forgotten.
Objects and Influence of Masonry
B. Ripley, At Paris In 1900 there is
totbe held a religious conference. Its
objects are to proclaim religious free
ilon to reaffirm the cducatonal uses of
relixjon, to seek the fraternal union
of Amen, to set agalnBt fanaticlsm.to
procralm the equality of tho sexes.
These may be said to be the Identical
objects of Masonry. While Masonry
may not be declared to bo religion, it
is religious. Every candidate roust be
u believer In tho Supreme Being and
there are prayers in the lodge meet
ings. Masonry has always stood for
rllglous liberty. 'Masonry has as an
object the inculcation of benevolence.
The influence of Masonry Is woll shown
In this age of human progress nnd
kindness. Le ulers of men In battles
for liberty have been Masons Simon
Uollvnr, Marcos Bozzarls, Garcia all
Masons, Many Maepns havo beon met
here during the past few weeks bound
on a most laudable mission. We seo
at the head of tho government of the
United States a Mason. Wo recall
Washington, tho Mason. Masons havo
ates. In Spain it is
terminated. One is an en-
tened land, the other one of Ignor
ance, Intolerance and bigotry. The In
fluence of Masonry is apparent because
it is founded on the eternal race of
truth and Is for tho highest good of
man nnd nation.
Higher Masonry Brother Kobertson
d San Francisco. The visitor paid a
high tribute to the Masons of Hono
lulu. As Inspector he had been asked
some years ago to come to the Islands
on a -Masonic mission, but was unable
lo do so. He finds that a year from
now he will be able to come it needed
nnd If he can be of any service. His
heart had been won by the local Ma
sons. Tho speaker told of his arrival
In San Francisco thirty years ago. He
became a school teacher and now faced
a number of his old pupils. He told
of one who was asked to spelt guerilla
and wanted to know If there was
meant a southern man or a monkey.
'Mr. Robertson said he was grateful
for tho courtesy shown him by Hono
lulu Masons and that ho was partic
ularly glad to meet Paul Neumann
after hearing so much of tho gentle
man. Mr. Robertson spoke of the cer
tainty of annexation and said those
who were opposed to It would not find
It so bitter a pill as ho a Southerner
swallow cd years ago. There was np
plauso tor tho statement that all was
unity now with the people of tho
Mr. Neumann led up to tho sent!
men, Tho Prosperity of tho islands,
by referring to Mr. II. F. Dillingham
as tho Colossus of Roads. Mr. Dilling
ham responded briefly in his usual
earnest and sanguine stylo, tho while
speaking of Masonry and its lessons.
.Mr. Neumann spoke eloquently of
tho solid union now to e observed In
tho United States, as well as the re
lations existing between tho United
States and tho mother country.
"There aro Others" N. E. Gedge,
Pacific Lodge. Tho sentiments ex
pressed by Mr. Spalding were endorsed
and seconded. Mr. Gcdgo was con
vinced that tho new union would fur
ther tho interest of all. It will be
seen how pleasant It Is for brethren
to dwell together In unity and cher
ishing ihe principle that the glory of
ono is the glory of all.
Visitor Robertson, who was In forty
battles of the civil war, arose again
to say that "Yankee Doodle" was now
"Dlxlo Doodle" and that the country
would bo Incomplete without Hawaii.
Tho toastmaster called on Brother
nulea, of New Jersey, to offer some
thing for the good of the order. The
visitor presented a kindly message
from his stato and complimented the
Masons of Honolulu on their temple
and 'work and hoped for a Grann
Lodgo of Hawaii.
Worshipful Master Little, of Hawa
iian 21, was plcaisCd to welcome Lodge
lo Progres to tho temple. He hoted
that all would co-operate in assisting
tho new members of tho house, family.
Tho Eastern Star (The Ladles)
John Phillips told an amusing anec
dote The speaker admitted that he
was late, but that his sentiments wero
sound nevertheless. This ineetlng of
the three lodges marks tho fruition of
tho loiig-chcrlshed hope of many
Mr. White announced that tho form
nl program was at an end. when Mr.
Phillips proposed tho health of Paul
Neumann, who replied with witty re
marke. This closed the eening.
Iron W'orkH Complimented.
Hoth the chief engineer of tho U. S.
S. Urutus nnd tho U. S. N. Paymaster
wll settled the bill said that tho work
of tho Honolulu Iron Works on the
engines of tho collier had been entirely
satisfactory. The men who had Inb-
orcd night and day In close quarters
wero mentioned ns being good as ever
seen anywhere. Tho paymaster was
entirely satisfied. .
