Tin? Stmulartl, contained a leading article
extending the cordial welcome of the
Kngli-h nation to His Majesty.
"Thursday, July 7. This was a compara
tive day of rest with the King, as he was
desirous; to recover from the fatigues of. the
rapid journey from Italy to London. Lord
Tenterden, Permanent Under Seeretao'
for Foreign Affairs, called at Clar

From the ,.' ii (.'izritr, .j'.itli June. I
The recent vi.-itof the King of the Ha
waiian Islands was an interesting event in
more ways than one.
It was the visit of th "West to the East,
of the new world to t.:e old. King Kala
kaua is the ruler of a county the existence
of which was unknown to the rest of tin
globe only one hundred and three 3-ears
ago. 1 11 Egj-pt, he saw a land which four
thousand years back had already made it
It would be interesting to know what
were the impressions of the Western Mon
arch. He has had an oyfcortunit3 of seeing
monuments of an antiquitj' and interest
such a no other laud can boast of. He ha
seen tire mighty Nile flowing on it fertil
izing course to the sea. He has gazed on
that great engineering work, the Suez
Canal, and he has seen the harbor of Alex
andria with its crowd of foreign shipping.
Further than this, he has had the opportu
nity of making himself acquainted with
the Suez Burial Board. and of contemplating
the magnitude of the Eg3"ptian Debt.
All these thing will, we may be sure,
not be lost on our late visitor, who has
shown himself to be intelligent bc3"ond the
onlinarv run of monarchs.
Doubtless he makes note of what he sees,
and such institutions as appear advantage
ous ma3 perhaps be some da3" introduced
into his own dominions. He ma- not in
deed he tempted to cop3r Egj-pt in "her P r
amids, in her Suez ( 'anal, or even in her
Suez Burial Board'; but he may well be
tempted to try to imitate her in the matter
of Finance. The Hawaiian Islands have
alreadj a National Debt. It is a small one
it is true. 011I3' some miserable HMi,mo;
but with the example of Eg3"pt before him.
King Kalakaua UK13- son find the means
to make it a large one. He has then 011I3
to institute a Commission d'Enquete,
European Controllers, and Commissioners
of the Debt, to repudiate nearl3 half the
Interest, and Hawaiian securities will
stand higher than ever. We do not say
that an3" such project is determined on, but
its feasibilitv i obvious, and this should
not be lost sight of b speculators in foreign
It mu-t be borne iu mind that the Ha
waiian Islanders are by no means behind
hand in the matter of civilization, nor
backward in adopting the institutions of
other countries. In some respects, notwith
standing the lateness of their start in the
race, they are considerahpy ahead of Eg"pt.
For instance, the government i in every
sense a constitutional one, carried on
through the instrumentality of a Chamber
of notables and representatives Slaveiy
is unknown, and the women enjo3" the
most unbounded freedom. .
Added to this, the people are but'Iighty
taxed, and, as a consequence, the3 are
prosperous and happv. Nature ha, it is
true, done much for them. The i-lands
which form their home are justl.v termed
'gems of the ocean." In addition to a
delicious climate, they have mountain
fourteen thousand feet high. and the largest
volcano in the world. The slopes of the
hill- are covered with magnificent forest
trees. The harbors are formed l3" Nature's
architect, the coral insect, working from
unknown depths. Against the barriers
thus erected, the blue waters of the Pacific
beat with gentle violence, whiNt from a
beach of glittering whiteness, grove of
coeoanut trees wave their feat he r" pinnies
highin the air, and graeefulU bend their
slender stems to the breathing of the
The i-'aiulers, it i- true, killed and eat
England's greatest navigator, but they
have shown their willingness to atone for
their error b- erecting a monument to his
memor3". Fashion have changed since
then, and an outbreak of 'trichinosis"
amongst the missionaries i- no longer re
garded l3 the natives in the light of an
impending famine. Nevertheless " uneay
lies the head that wear a crown," and it
is not to be expected that, even in that
pleasant land. King Kalakaua should
escajH the troubles which, b- a perhaps
wise dispensation of Providence, seem in
separable from roj-a!t
His present ditficultv is of .1 somewhat sin
gular nature. It arises from a terrible
falling otl in the population of his King
dom." A monarch without subjects cannot
be said to occup3" a very dignified or even
useful position; ami 3-et this is the state to
which, unless some remedy van be devised.
Kalakaua i likelv to be reduced.

Probably no count rv" has been so fruitful
a field as ilawaii for misionar- enterprise,
and nowhere has the heathen been brought
to a higher state of ideal perfection. Un
fortunately hi- moral regeneration has not
been attended with happj results in other
ways, and he is fast disappearing from the
face of the earth.
At the time of the discovery of these is
lands, the population was estimated at
upward of half a million. In KV it was
one hundred thousand, and now it is re
duced to only sit thousand.
It is related tha't in ancient times, before
the white man set foot on these islands, the
population eonsiderab- exceeded the high
est figure we have named. Devastating
wars between rival chief reduced the
number of the inhabitant. These causes,
however, seem to have been but slight in
their operation as compared with the in
fluence of civilization. As it was with the
Fiji islander and the New Zealander, so it
has been with the Sandwich islander. Con
tact with the superior race, who have
taught him the blessings of the Gospel,
ami the use of aleholie drinks, has been
fatal to the poor native. It would take too
much space to discuss all the causes which
have conduced to the present unhappj
state of things, but amongst them is tne
prevalence of infanticide, the result of ill
advised attempts to enforce on the simple
minded inhabitants, a rigid coiie of moral
ity to" which thej were total I y unaccus
tomed. Although ovt r-population, rather than
the reverse, is the rule iu the old world,
and especially in Europe, it is nevertheless
difficult to advise Kalakaua in a matter of
such delicaej'. But were we to offer an3
counsel at all, we should advise his giving
up the attempt to over-civilize his subjects
by enforcing European customs upon a
race to whom thev are obviously unsuit

I thank you most siucerely1 lor the kind ex
I'reesiona jou have used in welcoming uie here
this evening, and at the name tiiii acknowledge
with high appreciation the honor von have con
ferred upon me as 4 lion. Grand Master of the
Grand Satienal Orient of Egypt .
1 cannot help but express to you the gratitude
I feci for the kindness exhibited bj' the people of
Cairo, and especially lv your wise, able and no
ble ruler. I fully acquiesce in and acknowledge
the high claims you have aspired to, as expressed
by our M-st Worthy Grand Master this evening.
Though, the organization of jour grand body is
of recent date; still, having its residence in the
la ml of :iit ifiiity , it should be entitled to the
ciuisidt-nttioii of other Masonic lodges wherever
dispersed throughout the world. Considering
this as your ultimatum, ic is no less important
that your CJrand Lode is destined to play a
conspicuous part in the future, for the fulfillment
of an event wln'Hi I will endeavor partially to
elucidate. It was my good fortune yesterday to
111 ike a humble pilgrimage tc those vast and
noble piles of antiquity, the Pyramids. The con
templation of the vastness, the ge and grandeur
of tliee structures, has no doubt furnished
food lor reflection to men of every country and
every ae. But they are indeed more valuable
to us brethren of the Masonic fraternity, for
they teach us innumerable lessons of the pre
cepts of our Holy Order. 'they ehow to us
Wisdom, Strength and Beauty in the conception of
their design ; cast by the nmstcf hand of opera
tive, and calculated by the wisdau of speculative
masonry of that remote penoi, for a purpose
and a destiny t be fulfilled. 1 will enumerate
but a few that have come under my observation :
Liok in every direction and survey the sur
roundings, one is confronted with emblematical
symbols and i-ins of specalat.ve masonry. No
one can doubt their identity, or that they were
built under the anepices ol operative masonry
m means of instruction to fpcculative ma
sonry. In the monument of Wie Sphinx you
can observe these meanings : Strength, repro
duced by the form of a lion guarding the cause
way : in the human h?ad is represented
llrci, t-ymbolically rqirescnting the two
pillars at the entrance ol all masonic lodges.
Tbe bases of the Pyramids each firm a true, per
fect square, the four sides cf the base lying due
north and south, cast and west, showing the
position by which every lod;e Ims subsequently
been laid, even that of the jreat lodge and tem
ple of Solomon, at .IerualMii. The altitudinal
position ol the Pyramid U its true meridian
forms a pivot of a compass, or centre ol a circle ;
that centre of a circle by ail of which no Master
Mason can materially err. The Pyramid, if taken
as one solid mass, becomes the world's corner
stone, and suitably typilyiig the corner-stone
which tlie builders refused and neglected for
ages, should now be accepted, emblematically,
as the chief corner-stone of our Masonic edifice.
Uevrse the Pyramid, and you will have a key
stone of an arch a Royd Arch of the world's
circumference. The position of the Pyramids
being thus established as the pivot of a compass,
the right limb or arm running due north-east
towards and ending at the coast, of Pelusia, and
the left limb pointing due north west in the di
rection of and ending at Alexandria, form to
gether a triangle, the arc between the two points
forming an arch or quarter of a circle ; and, as
if designed, we of Hawaii, representing the
II rth-west limb or point of the compass, should
meet you, brothers of the Grand Sational Orient
of Kgypt, representing the north-east point, for a
purpise. An idea has struck me as to the sig
nificance of our meeting here this evening,
which I will hereafter propose, if 1 may be
allowed, to your grand bjdy for consideration,
an l which it is hoped will be pregnant of good re
sults for the benefit of Masonry and of our com
Tlicie is no doubt, as our worthy Grand
Master has expressed it.tl.nt Egypt was the cradle
of operative nnd Fpcculative Masonry. Frag
mentary evidence of the forms by which the
inituted have to pass the ordeal of initiation to
giin admi.-sion into the worship and knowledge
ot the mysteries of Osiris, forws and Jsis, have
been handed down to as. The ceremony of
baptism is considered by tbe ancient Egyptians
as one of the most important ; the initiated
undergoing the tremendous ordeal ef first passing
through a living flame of fire, and second, that
of water. This is prescribed in the ritual of
one ol our degrees ot Masonry, and is now repre
sented by the Christian formula of baptism, by
that of the spirit repreientative of the flame,
and the second form hj that of water. The
.Scrir ture evidently shows that Moses, the great
law-giver of the Jews, must have received in
structions from his father-in-law, a priest of
Midiao, w ho imparted to him the knowledge of
the mysteries of Isis, to make him by inspiration
command the Children of Israel. Enoch a Pil
l irs of stone and brass, which are emblems of
Masonry, ante-dat the period of Noah's flood ;
a conclusive proof of its great antiquity, inter
mingled with the religious ceremonies of the
period as with those of a later date, as proved by
the mixed Masonic worship at the building of
SjUinon's Temple, derived from more ancient
The interior of the Pyramid contains no less
equally valuable lessons of interest to us. From
the King's chamber to tbe end of the passage are
marked a series of numbers ot feet, inchee or
steps .ending at every stage with an approximation
to the period of time from Adam to the present
era, and, singularly enough, from the foot of the
great hall at the comer stage at the foot of the
causeway leading to the entrance, is marked a
significant symbol cal revelation of the period
from the birth of Christ up to the present year,
1881. figuratively defining a fired period, at
which an event will occur. May I say now that
event is a signification of our meeting here to
night, as I have already illustrated that Ilawaii,
the m."st n ji:h-westerly point of the compass, or
corner of the world, should have been destined
and in confirmation of one of the least of the
tenets of our order that Ilawaii, having re
mained Jong m darkness." a now permitted to
enjoy the benefits of the true light. In viewing
the mighty handiwork of ancient operative Ma
sonry, assisted by the aid of inspiration from
that Great Light which is from above, the grand
Geometrician, the great Architect ol the Universe !
another significant instance prophetically pre
sents itself; that from the birth of ChrUt, (one
of the chief patrons of speculative Masonry.)
corresponding with the existence of Christianity,
for one thousand eight hundred and eighty-one
years, may be taken as a symbolical revelation
of the fulfillment of the period when all the na
tions of the earth will meet to the better ac
knowledgement of Him, one at least of the
Triune, representative of moral and spiritual
Masonry. Isaiah XIX 19:25. It certainly
seems that a special legacy of antiquity is indeed
predicted for uh speculative Masons of the
present d.;y m decipher both the hidden meaning
and mysteries it ontains.and the fulfillment of its
It seems strange that destiny should have
placed my journey around flie world so a9 to ena
ble me to offer and express to you these remarks.
Need I suggest a method by which this im
portant object can be brought about, or that I
may be allowed now to propose that an Antiqua
rian Masonic fli filiation of the world be held in
Cairo at a proper time decided by your grand
Egypt, tis I may presume to say, has passed
her greatest embarrassments and financial crisis,
and should by an enterprising spirit of this) na
ture again assume a position worthy of her
ancient glory and renown. Other nations have
practically proved the possibility of holding
exhibitions for commercial purposes, England,
France, Austria, America, and lately Austra
lia. It becomes Egypt's duty now to assume
the allotted task.
The genius of Count de Lesseps in cutting a
passage through the Isthmus of .Suez is a simple
dot, indicative of a point by which the circle of
the world's geographical surface may be reached
with ease by the whole world's representatives
meeting in the circle. The importance of such
an object cannot be over-estimated, and can
easily be discussed as bearing upon its political,
social and moral point of view, combined with
the commercial benefits which will accrue to
Egypt. Although my sojotyn among you is but
short, 1 would be most willing to co-operate with
you in the matter ,and to take a lively interest in its
success. The consummation of such an under
taking, it is hoped, would be but the fulfillment
of onr moral duties in uniting tho speculative
Masonry ol 1881, to become operative, as of old,
thereby completing the last and finishing touch on
the work of our moral trestle beard, and again to
resume, symbolically, the use of the trowel in
cementing the speculative and spiritual fabric of
the world in one bond of Unity, Love, Friend
ship and Truth !
