Prior to the death of our late right
worshipful grand -secretary, Brother
James C Adams, Mr. Samuels had
planned" his itinery to include all the
lodges in the jurisdiction, particu
larly the middle and southern parts
of the state. But, as usual, man
proposes and God disposes; there
fore it is ot probable that the- pro
gram will be entirely carried out as
originally planned; however, having
the best interests df the craft at
heart, every effort will be put forth
to-see -as .many lodges as possfclel
. About' two months ago an-application
was received from several un
affiliated, brethren former members
of St James Logger No. 85, request

talking on their part nor shouting or
waving their hands at someone whom
they happened to" know standing on
the sidewalk. All along the line of

no end to the Royal Eagles, for by
marching three abreast and four feet

followed close behind the first band,
their color bearer held Old Glory or
the American flag aloft and all along
the line of march, fully ten thousand
people, removed their hats as it passed

At no time in the past have the
colored Masons in this city made the
fine showing like unto St John's Day,
Not over seven or eight hundred
of the- five thousand Masons stuck .
their heads Into St Mary's Church,,
for it was far too small for any use
for .an occasion of that kind. The -services
should have been held at the
Eighth Regiment Armory and if it -would
have been impossible to se
cure h, then the services should have
been held at Masonic. Hall, for it will
hold as many and possibly more peo
pie than St Mary's Church, for thou- -sands
of the Masons were forced to
stand around in the boiling -hot sun
