/On Friday evening of last week
occurred an interesting event in the
history of Whitman Lodge, No. 49,
A. F. & A. M. It was the initiation
of five candidates, who wore raised
to the sublime degree of Master
Masons. The fortunate persons
were Dr. G. B. Wilson, Dr. S. B.
Nelson, 8. H. Cameron, E. W.Quar
els and J. S. Keenev. A large del
egation of visitors from neighboring
lodges were present to witness* the
conferring of the work, which be
gan at six o'clock and lasted until
after midnight. The excellent
work of the Pullman team elicited
much praise from the visitors. The
handsome new hall, with its excel
lent arrangements also called forth
m-Kill I ivorahiv- comment, and the
1 banquet which followed was indeed
a fitting climax to the evening's
program. A. B. Baker presided in
an able manner as toastmjuter af
ter the choice viands had been par
taken of, and introduced many
speakers who delivered interesting
talks. Among others, the vritf.y
and touching remarks of Rev.
Smitherß; the recalling of the early
history of Whitman Lodge, No. 49,
by J. B. Tabor; instructive talks by
It. Pickering, of Genesee, and W.
A. Stnippier, of LJniontown, and the
giving of his experience and im
pressions by each of the newly
made Masons, and some old-time
songs by Rev. Smithers, served to
make an interesting occasion. Five
is the largest number of candidates
which the rules of the order permit
to be initiated at one meeting, and
the fact that this has occurred be
fore in the history of this lodge is
in itself significant.
The members from abroad who
enjoyed the hospitality of Whitman
Lodge, No. 49, were as follows: T.
