as usual, and the Christmas Carols were sung with
grand enthusiasm. A collection was made in aid
of the orchestra, and although everyone con
tributed what they could under the circumstances,
there is no doubt the amount would have been
doubled or even trebled, if the congregation had
been previously aware, that they would be called
upon for such a worthy contribution.
Satuhday night last, in this city, will be long re

" The Time " Leadino Akticle. Extract from
the London Time : Passing by a crowd of minor
notions, we come upon the exhibit of the Walthara
Watch Company, which, in economical importance,
is perhaps superior to anything else shown. The
rivalry of tho watches of this Company has already
been felt by our own makers, and a hesitating at
tempt was made last session, in the interest of the
Coventry manufacturers, to prevent the watch
cases of tho Company receiving the English stamp,
which certifies that they are mado of gold. It
would seem that the Waltham Watches may defy
all attempts to exclude them in this indirect way.
Their first claim to public approval was derived
from the extraordinary nicety of their construction.
They were made with such perfect exactitude that
the parts ol all watches oi tue same ciass couiu db
interchanged, and, production being thus made
possible on a large scale, cheapness as well as excel
lence was secured. But the Company have gone
on introducing improvements in their art, and the
compensation balance they nave uevisea seems to
have overcome the standing difficulty of the vary
ing expansibility of the spring and the wheel. It is
said that the delicacy of construction of the me
chanism invented by the Company is such that a

His Majesty, accompanied by Gov. Domiuis,
received his guests in the Throne Room, th-y
passing by him and saluting him as theirSov
ereign, after which he and the Governor took
their places in the procession as Past Masters,
and with the brethren sat dowu to partake
of the good things provided. The head of
the table was occupied by the Worshipful Broth
ers Higgins and Howe, and on their immediate
right, His Majesty, Brothers R. M. Daggett, A.

On the left were Brothers J. O. Dominis, W. B.

The banquet was spread in the dining room of
the new palace. The tables were laden with all
the good things obtainable, and the wines were
of the most recherche character. Before sitting
down, h llesing was nsked by Brother Alex
ander Mackintosh. After doing justice to the
viands. Past Master DaytOM, Orator of Lodge le
Progres de POccanie, called the brethren to or
der for the first toast of the evening. In giving
this toast he said : Worshipfcl Masters, Waeiv
exs, and Brethren It being obligatory on mem
bers of Lodge le Progres to drink several toasts
ou this occasion, before doing so, I will in
form you that the corner stone of this edifice,
the palace, was laid by the Masonic fraternity on
December 31st, 1879 by the request of His Maj
esty Kalakaua, King of the Hawaiian Islands.
And now, my brethern, his Royal Majesty, King
of the Hawaiian Islands, and Past Master of
Lodge le Progres de l'Oceanie, has become our
host, honoring us with the first festival in this
edifice. My Brethren, I will Invite you to
charge your glasses and drink the first regular
toast of the evening, His Majesty the King, and
the Royal family.
On drinking this toast the band played the
national anthem, after which.by request of Orator
on behalf of His Majesty, replied as follows :
Wobshiptcx Masters and Brethren : I beg
to thank you sincerely for the enthusiastic man
ner in which you have drank the health of His
Majesty and theJRoyal family of Hawaii. I am
certain that 1 express the feeling of His Majesty
when I say that he is much giatified with the
numerous representation of the Masonic frater
nity here to-night, the largest that has ever
asembled in the Hawaiian Kingdom. It gives
His Majesty much pleasure to receive us here
to-night as it does to as partake of his gen
erous hospitality. It augurs well for the
interest that he takes iu Masonry that the first
public entertainment given in the new Palace
was to the Brotherhood. Masonry has been
well represented by the rulers of Hawaii. First,
His Majesty Kamehameha IV, who passed
through the various degrees, and finally became
Master of his Lodge. Kamehameha V. also
took a great interest in Masonry. Afterwards,
we come to the young and brilliant Prince Lei
lihohoku, who, though called away at the early
age of 22 years, was a Master Mason and held
office iu his Lodge. His Majesty, on his visit
to the United States in 1876, was received with
open arms by the Masons in every city that he
visited iu the Great Republic, and also on his
recent tour round the world, the Masonic frater
nity extended a cordial and welcome greeting
both in the East and in Europe. I feel certain
that there is no body of men more devoted to
His Majesty and his family than the Masons.
To be a good Mason one must be a good citizen.
Again on behalf of His Majesty and family, I
thank you most sincerely. (Loud applause.)
Brother Dayton next proposed the Supreme
Council of the Graud Lodge of France. The
Brethren gave the Royal Honors and the Band
played Le Marsellaise.
Brother J. O. Dominis
being called upon by the Orator, responded to
the toast in the following words:
W. M., Officers and Brethren : In the
name of the Grand Body, the Supreme Council
of France under whose authority we act and meet
here to-night, I thank you for this remembrance
and recognition of your distant, though none the
less watchful and indulgent parent, who claims
with some degree of masonic pride, the honor of
having organized the first masonic lodge in the
Pacific. You are all perhaps acquainted with
the beginning of masonry in the Pacific. How
Brother Le Tellier (whom but a few beside my
self remember) a French navigator and a mason,
during his several voyages to the Pacific; stop
ping to recruit at these islands, here met with
other brother masons, partly brother navigators
from his own aud other lands, partly masonic
waifs from every clime whom life's currents had
wafted hither. There was then no temple in the
Islands in which to gather, no altar at which to
kneel, and the sound of the gavel was not heard
calliug the brethren to order. On his returning j
to France, on applica ion to the Grand Body of
that country, he obtained authority to institute
lodgea in the Pacific, and revisiting these islands
in 1843, this lodge Le Progres de l'Oceanie, was
the first fruit of that far-seeing and enterprising
brother. From that day onward, the Grand
Body of France has always treated its distant
daughter with marked consideration and kind
ness, aud well deserves this tribute of recogni
tion at your hands. Among the numerous
Masonic Grand bodies which dot the world in
every direction, exerting, through their subord
inate lodges their silent, but patent influences
upon the culture of mankind, expanding and
elucidating the principles of Brotherly Love,
Relief and Truth ; the Grand Body to which we
owe allegia ce as Masons, stands conspicuous
and honored amongst its fellows ; and by none
more so, than by the M.'. W. G. Lodge of
Califoruia, whose subordinate lodge, Hawaiian,
No. 21, a sister lodge and fellow worker on these
islands, has this night honored us by accepting
onr invitation in that true and fraternal spirit
which we and they so often inculcate of who can
" best work and agree" in the fulfilment of the
objects of masonry. As a personal illustration
of that good will aud high consideration which
these two Grand Bodies entertain for each other,
I cannot but most feelingly refer to the very
courteous, I may say distinguished, reception, I
met with from members of the California G.
Lodge aud from individual lodges under its
jurisdiction when last I visited San Francisco.
Long may that harmony exist ; and I know that
our worthy Orator will not forget so great an
ally, so good a friend. And now, for our own
venerable mother, the Supreme Council of
France, whom you have just tendered honors be
fitting the occasion, I thank you.
The third toast announced by the Orator wus
'The Grand Lodge of California," to which
royal honors were also accorded, and the band
played the " Star Spangled Banner."
upon being called upon by the Orator to respond
to this toast, said :
Most Worshipful Officers and Brethren:
On behalf of the Most Worthy Grand Lodge . of
California and its Grand Master, whom you
have honored with the compliment of the tyist
just offered, it becomes my pleasant duty to re
spond as best I may. I merely wish that that
M. W. Body could have had on this occasion a
better, a more gifted and a more tiuent interpre
ter of its good wishes towards the Progres del'
Oceanie Lodge, that oldest organization of
.Masonry in the Pacific, at whose brotherly and
festive board you now have the honor to be
assembled. During the 30 years that I have
been connected with Masonry, aud during many
of which I had the honor of being in rather
intimate correspondence with successive officers
of the Grand Lodge of California, I have learned
enough of the sentiment of that Grand Body to
express with full confidence the high appreciation
and kindly, brotherly regard which it entertains
towards the "Progres de l'Oceanie " Lodge.
That sentiment has been exercised, on several
occasions, by the warm and respectful reception
visiting brethren, and, what I may call repre
sentative members of Le Progres de l'Oceanie "
Lodge have met with in the subordinate Lodges
of that Grand Lodge in California; and on this
occasion my voice is but a feeble echo of that
sentiment; a sentiment, however, which one day
in the not far distant future, when Puck or Mr.
C. O. Berger shall have put his girdle round
about the earth," I hope the Grand Lodge of
California, itself, may be able to transmit in
stanter without a proxy. Once more I thank
you on behalf of the M. W. Grand Lodge of Cali
fornia and its M. W. Grand Master.
The Orator then gave as the next toast,
'The Presiding Officers of the Lodges," which
was responded to by Worshipful Bro. Howe in
the following terms:
In behalf of my Bro. Master and myself, whom
you have twice elected and twice installed as Mas
ters of Masonic Lodges, we take this opportunity
to express onr sincere thanks for the honors
you have so kindly conferred upon us, We have
been chosen to fill the highest office which a
Blue Lodge can bestow. You haye twice in
stalled us as your Masters to place the novitiate
upon the first step in Masonry, to impart those
mysterious secrets which are supported by the
tenets of brotherly love, relief and truth. We
have been chosen to rule and govern with the
regularity of the planets; to extend our hand in
token of friendship and brotherly love ; to give
words of comfort and perform deeds of charity.
Masonry, supported by its beautiful tenets, has
not been impaired through a succession of ages.
The Master has directed the Craftsmen, who
have performed and obeyed, and when we pause
and think of Jthe vast amount of labor and ma
terial which have been expended, we are im
pressed with the highest admiration for the de
signs of the Master and the workmanship of the
craft. By our lessous in daily life we are taught
that the operative Mason erects his building
agreeably to the rnk-s and desiins of the Master,
and we as Free and Accepted Masons are taught
to erect our spiritual building agreeably to the
rules and designs as drawn by the Master from
that great book of nature and revelation which
is our spiritual, moral, and Masonic trestle
board. These designs, which have been care
fully drawn by the Master and faithfully exe
cuted by the craft, place him who is elected to
occupy the chair in the east, in the highest so
cial a" J Masonic position which can be conferred
in Masonry. Masonry regards no man for his
worldly wealth or honor, and as a lodge confers
its highest honors upon a brother who is a prince
or sovereign, it confers like honors on one who
is destined to walk in a more humble path in
life. There must be the great pillar of Wisdom
to contrive, and supported by the one of Strength,
and adorned by that of Beauty; and he who
represents the pillar of Wisdom, which for ages
has been the support of our holy order, is con
tinually reminded that justice is alike to all.
Prudence and fortitude must ever be remem
bered, and by temperance we control the mind
and keep those secrets sacred which are only
known to the initiated, and he who wears the
square the emblem of truth and morality, and
immovable as the pillar of Wisdom reminds the
lodge that we meet on the same level and travel
as all brothers have done, and that we part upon
the square of truth and morality, to meet again
where charity is extended to all. To our host
we extend our utmost thanks for the beautiful
entertaii;nient which has been provided for this
evening, aud as Masons we are proud to meet in
the palace of our Sovereign, and when we extend
our thanks to a brother who is our Sovereign we
extend them to one who occupies the highest
position in Masonry, and to one who has been
Master of a Lod"e. But a short time ago we
assembled upon this spot, when the corner-stone
of this building was prouonneed well formed,
true, and trusty by the Master; and we have
again assembled this evening by the invitation
of him who was regularly initiated, passed, and
raised, and who honors his lodge as a Master
and his people as a Sovereign.
Brother J. M. Monsarrat,
upon being called upon by the Orator, respond
ed to the toast of " The Wardens" in the fol
Yocr Majesty, Worshipful Masters and
Brethren : It seems to me out of the order of
things that a Junior Warden should be called
upon to respond to this toast, instead of the Se
nior Warden of the oldest Lodge present here
this evening. And I am sure it could have been
more appropriately and at the same time more
brilliantly responded to by him than by me. I
feel it, however, to be a great honor to be called
upon, on so auspicious an occasion as a banquet
given by Our Roy.-.l Brother King Kalakaua, in
celebration of the anniversary of one of our
patron saints, aud more particularly do I feel the
honor as I am young in Masonry. I cannot
speak authoritatively for the Senior Wardens not
being one of them more than to thank you
Brethren in their behalf as well as in that of the
Junior Wardens for the toast just drauk. As I
look upon this table so bountifully spread with
good things and graced with the choicest vint
ages, I cannot but think that the duty of the
Junior Warden, that of (superintending the craft
auring me nours oi reiresnment, is nparucuiariFrsiae, ana as sue buries her dead, throwing within
pleasant one on this occasion, and I am sure F") the dark portals of the grave the evergreen, she
1 ! a" 1 1
shall be excused by all the Brethren present for
being in no hurry to call the Craft from refresh
ment to labor again, even at the order of the
Worshipful Master. Brethren I again thank
you on behalf of my Brother Wardens and my
self for the toast just drank.
The next toast announced by the Orator was,
"The Officers of the Lodges," to which
being called upon, responded. He said :
Yocr Majesty, Brethren : I had hoped some
older and more honored member of the fraternity
than myself would be called upon to respond to
this toast, some brother with more rhetoric and
elegant diction than is possible to eminate from
my poor tongue who would more adequately do
justice to the officers of tho lodge, one of whom I
have the honor to be. Since, however it has pleas
ed the masters to call on me, it shall be my duty as
well as my pleasure to respond. It has never be
fore been my pleasure to meet so fine and so large
for assemblage of masons in this city. Metaphori
cally speaking, the officers of a lodge are the work
ing "bees in the Masonic hive, and it has been our
experience t learn this to be a veritable truth as
applied to Honolulu. One could never infer from
an attendance at lodge or other Masonic gatherings
(banquets excepted) that so many members of our
honored fraternity existed in this little island king
dom. Remember Brethren the universal rule
" whenever labor stops progression ceases," is ap
plicable to mankind and doubly so to Masonry. By
absenting yourselves from lodges the officers are
hampered in their labors, work is slighted,
interost flags a wrong impression and con
viction of the great vital principles and ten
ets of our order and its beneficial ef
fects upon mankind is imparted to the novitiate,
is in your very presence alone ; help not only to
us but to yourselves as well, for you are uncon
sciously preparing yourself to fill offices with case
and pleasure, when otherwise it would be a labor
aud burden. If any there be whose apoligy for
absenting 1 imself from masonic duty or lodge
attendance is non-interest, let me say to such that
"Masonry actually contains the rudiments of all
worldly science and spiritual edification. Neces
sarily human nature fixes men in a state of mutual
dependence one upon another, it is even so in
masonry we must be united for our welfare- -nay
for our very existence. Such brethren are the
feelings of the officers of our Lodges, and I speak
for them in no spirit of, carping, fault-finding or
criticism, but with a masonic and fraternal intent,
and our plea is for the fraternity only. The officers
of tho lodges feel grateful in return for the uni
form courtesy which the Craft resident and visiting
have always testified toward them, and also to
His Majesty for this generous and elegant banquet,
and it shall be our endeavor to never lose siht of
the service our office demands, but to give dignity
to our Order, and honor and authority to our laws,
accomplishing our labors with a Judicious union of
wisdom, strength and beauty, and being careful at
the same time to act to our superiors with sub
mission, to our equals, courteous and affable, and
to inferiors, kind and condescending. Decorated
as we are with badges which yield preference to no
other order in the world, we shall abhor any act
calculated to debase the exalted place our Order
already occupies, that our example may convince
the world, that our grand principles are brotherly
leve, relief and truth. So that this life passed
in a conscientious discharge of our masonic duties
we may at iast gain the pass word to the Lodge of
the Supreme Grand Master and receive the
welcome salutation "Well done good and faithful
The seventh toast given by the Orator was,
'The Members of Sister Lodges and Visiting
Brethren." The Orator called upon
Brothei: J. A. Chl'Zan,
who responded as follows:
Your Majesty, Brother Kalakaua, Worshipful
Masters and Brethren : Like the brothers who
have preceded me, I too, cannot imagine why I
should have been chosen from among all the visit
ing brethren to respond to this toast. Perhaps it
is upon the principle recommended for choosing a
wife : " In choosing a wife," says some one, ' be
governed by her chin." And some one else has
wickedly added:. "The worst .of it is that after
choosing a wife most men are governed in the
same way I" (Laughter.) Perhaps I was chosen
on the chin principle, for a minister is compelled
to use his " chin" a good deal. Then, too, how any
one can be expected to speak after such a long
interval for " refreshment " with no " labor " in
terspersed, is a marvel to me. How, under these
circumstances, the brothers who have preceded me
can produce such eloquence as that to which we
have listened passes my comprehension. I fel
much more like the good New England lady who
went to visit friends in the West, and had her first
experience with a cyclone, than I do like speaking.
The cyclone came at midnight, leveled the house
and buried the visitor under it. Her friends dug
her out, expecting to find her dead. To their
amazement they found her asleep and uninjured,
and tfs they lifted a rafter from off her chest, she
sleepily murmured, ' I feel a little uncomfortable !
Jane; unfasten my corsets!" (Prolonged laughter.)
I am at a loss what these visiting brethren would
like to have me say for them. Josh Billings, the
good philosopher but poor speller, says : " When
a man kums to me for advice, I find out the kind
uv advice he wants, and then giv that to
him. This satisfies him that he and I ar two
as smart men az there is livin." (Laughter. 1
Now I may say just the wrong thing, for I haven't
the remotest idea what these brothers waut said
for them. However, at a venture, I point out the
fact that this gathering is an illustration of the
universality of Masonry. I do not believe that it
would be possible to bring together in any other
city of the size of Honolulu on the face of the globe
a like number of men who were made Masons in
ho many different lands. England boasts that "her
drum-beat is heard with the rising of the sun
round the world, and that tho Bun never sets on
her dominions." But Masonry can boast an older,
a wider and a more stable empire. She has seen
nations rise and fall; but she stands firm through
all political changes. Wherever civilization goes,
there Masonry is omnipresent and indestructible.
She even goes in advance of civilization, for whei
the French, a short time ago, took their armed plea
sure excursion into North Africa, they found in
Tunis a Masonic lodge. Masonry can say with
" Men may come, and men may go,
Bat I go on for ever, ever,
I go ou for ever."
These visiting brethren are a good illustration of
this universality. They represent nearly every
laud nuder the sun. We have here Maons from
the vineyards of sunny France, and her frtat
neighbor across the Rhine. Germany ; Old England,
whose Prince of Wales, like our own Kalakaua.
counts it an honor to be a Mason and the Ciraud
Master of the Grand Lodge, has her reprocntattveg;
Ireland, who puts her shamrock just llow the
emblems of Masonry, sits with us in the person of
an honored brother." Coming to tho great liepuMic,
there is scarcely a State or Territory unrepresented.
Beginning at tho very easternmost poiut of Cape
Cod. where no one can walk for pitting cand in
Lis boots (laughter) passing all the States,
aud bringing good and truo Masons from them all ;
halting in Nevada, where men never die except
with their boots on. (langhtcr) Prcaidont Arthur
finds a Mason whom he sends to us to represent
America at this Court ; even Arizona, where the
greatest living curiosity to her inhabitants is the
camel, because he goes so long between drinks
(laughter) ; to the fir-clad mountains of the North
Pacific, where, as Bryant tells us,
" Roll tba Oregon, and hear no aouoJ,
Save his own dihlng,"
Masonry spans the Continent. The Colonies meet
us on the " level ;" and Japan, where they do
everything backwards, and where I suppose they
confer the Master's degree first, and the Entered
Apprentice's last (laughter) sends us Professor
Scott; and China, where everything is written up
and down, and where they write their ritual ou
their tea-boxes (perhaps !) 'and crawfish throngh it
as best they can (laughter) sends us our ready
writer " Brother Brown of the Advertiser. And
here, from all these widely-sundered Lodges we
are met around this hospitable board in Hawaii
Nei. And it is perhaps well that we meet here and
not in Texas, for, it is said that they meet every
stranger in the Lone-star State with three ques
tions : " Where did you come from V" " What
was your name there?" "Why did you have to
leave there?" (Prolonged laughter). Now I know
that I speak the sentiments of every visiting
Brother when I say that we should consider such
questions as those personal, and as we have a Deputy-Marshal
for Toast-Master, not only inoppor
tune, but very embarrassing ! (Renewed laughter.)
This second thought : Masonry exists world
wide because she stands for certain great ideas and
principles. She emphasizes Fraternity, and a uni
versal Brotherhood. She knows no "state lines,
no party or sectarian divisions, no race, rank, or
condition ; Prince and mechanic meet as equals,
and are alike eligible to her highest honors ;
she bids hr highest or humblest go where
he will, world-wide, not as a strauger, but
in every land he will find not only friends but
brothers. (Applause.) Masonry stands for morality.
She teaches charity, unity, honesty, integrity, tem
perance. The man who is a Mason at heart as well
as in name, is a rounded, symmetrical, manly man,
standing upright before God and men, able to look
purity in the face without blushing, and never
drags' his manhood through the slums. Like the
young man in the scripture, only " ono thing " he
lacks to make him a "perfect man," and that is
Christianity. I know that many Masons are Masons
only in name, and not in life. As I look into some
Masonic (?) lives I am reminded of the witty say
ing about a fast New Yorker. It is said that a
young man in that city sports a seal ring on which
the ten commandments are engraved, in characters
so small that they can only be read with a micro
scope, and his friends say that he has lost his
microscope. (Laughter.) Masonic principles are
very finely engraved on some Mason's souls and
they, too, have lost their microscopes. But all
such un-Masonic lives are not the result of, but
the want of Masonry. Masonry has a right to ex
ist because she is a helper of men. She watches by
tne bedside or ner sick ; sue stands by the grave
I . - - . 1 . . . -
preacnes immortality ; she turns from the grave
and takes the widow and the orphan by tho Laud,
and bids them bo of good cheer, that they shall
never want a protector, that though the dead man
was the last of his race, his wife will find the world
full of brothers. As long as humanity remains
what it is, and as long as Masonry is truo to her
principles, she meets a felt want, she has a right to
bo, and will never perish from the face of the earth.
The Orator next proposed "All Masons Existing
on the Globe," and called upon
Brother Rollin M. Daggett
to respond, which he did in the following eloquent
Woushipfcl Masters, Wardens and Brethren:
This is indeed a goodly assemblage of Masons,
and I extend a fraternal geeting to you all. To
me this is a very interesting occasion, and so, I
doubt not, is it to you all ; for it is an event speaking
most eloquently, not only in the Masonic spirit hero
prevailing, but in its surroundings and the varied
character and nationality of the brethren present,
of the beneficence and universality of Freemasonry;
and that universality referred to by Brother Cruzan
cannot be better expressed, perhaps, than by say
ing that it is easier to point out where it exists iu
the civilized world of to-day than where it is not to
be found, for on every continent and on almost
every habitable island are seen its temples, wherein
are taught its religion of love,' charity, obedience
to law, and those sublime virtues tending to raise
men nearer to the angels nearer to that august
Grand Master whose seat is in tho east of the
eternities, and whose love and mercy it is our duty
to emulate so far as humanity may. The occasion
also is interesting because, under the gilded
rafters of royalty and surrounded by the para
phernalia of supreme national power, alike the
entered apprentice who has taken his first regular
step in Masonry and the advanced craftsman who
has received his final instruction in the order
alike the artizan, the mechanic, the humble toiler
who earns his bread iu the sweat of his face, and
the brother in whose seeptered hand abide abund
ance and authority all meet here on a common
level, all act here by the plumb, all part here on the
square ; and so, in language Masonic, may we ever
meet, a'ct and part. Of the antiquity of Masonry,
nothing need be said here where so many of the
brethren are learned in the lore of the craft ; but,
whether it had its origin in Assyrian or Chaldean
mystery, or, as Masons more readily leliove, among
the priesthood in Israel, it assuredly embraces a
code of morals and of worship as pure and as grand
as God ever gave to mankind ; and he is the best
citizen of all lands as well as the best Mason who
most closely observes its precepts. The monu
ments of Freemasonry are all over the world the
grandest being tho charity and social order which
its teachings have so largely assisted in shaping,
and the lesser, but none the less interesting, being
the Masonic relics and symbolism met with in
almost every land, even among the unlettered
savages, who knew not their meaning, but univer
sally regard thom with awe. A brother Mason
informed mo that he had seen, near his birth
place in North Carolina, on a precipitous cliff hun
dreds of feet above the earth and far below its but
ting summit, a large Masonic symbol cut or paint
ed upon the face of the rocks. It consisted of the
all-seeing eye, square and compass, aud how it
came there no man knows; and aboriginal tradi
tion failed to solve tha mystery. It was seen by
the white settlers there, and the Indians said that
many years in the past, their fathers saw it when
they came. This would seem to add weight to tho
assumption of Major Noah and others that por
tions of the lost tribes of Israel were among the
people who were successively landed in the New
World from Asia, and in turn were overwhelmed.
It may be interesting to the brethren to learn
that a crude Masonry exists among many of the
Indian tribes of the great west of the United
States. It is confined to the chiefs and sub-chiefs
of the tribes where it exists, and the Master of a
Lodge in Grass Valley, California, informed me,
some years ago, that while crossing the western
plains he had visited a lodge and witnessed the
work of these Red Masons. When Masonry was
first introduced among thim, the Indians do not
seem to know, but such of its obliga
tions as are understood by them are observed
with rigid fidelity. There is one Masouic sign
and the laditt present will not bo benefited by the
information which would be apt to find recogni
tion among one or more of any considerable body
of Indians from British Columbia to Mexico, and
through its opportune exhibition the lives of white
Masons have frequently been spared. One well
authenticated case is that of Hon. Albert Hires,
late Master of Virginia Lodge No. 3, of Nevada.
Some years ago a train of which he was a memlicr
was attacked by Indians in New Mexico. He was
recognized when wounded and in the act of lxang
slain. The hostile weapon was lowered, and he
was conveyed to a place of safety, and after the
battle, was provided with a horse, provisions and
whatever else was necessary, and escorted on his
way beyond the reach of danger. These rude Ma
sons of the wilderness these "plumed riders of
the deserts," savage in all things except when sub
dued by a mysterious influence of which they
scarcely know the meaning teach us an instructive
lesson. They teach us that Masonic obligation
does not end with the mere payment of lodge dues,
and that the receipt of the Secretary is not always
evidence that no dues remain unpaid. There are
Masonic obligations that cannot be canceled with
money, but must be paid in kindness, in sympathy
and brotherly love. And in this connection permit
me to make a remark which stands in reproof of
many of us. In our walks in life we here and there
meet a brother with whom fortune has dealt
harshly. Although not criminal, calamity has laid
its heavy hand upon him, and with the sunshine
driven from his heart, he may have sought oblivion
in an indulgence to which all mankind is prone.
We pass him by in silence, heedless of our duty,
and wonder how he ever became a brother in Ma
sonry. Let us take charity to our hearts when we
remember that, however desolate, forsakeu and un
worthy he may be now, some time during his lifo a
lodge of brethren, our poers in all things Masonic,
gave him the hand of fellowship and commended
him to our care to the care of all Masons whither
soever dispersed around the globe. For the benefit
of the substantial charities of our Order we pay
dues to our lodges; but there are dues to the Grand
Lodge above which must also be met not in gold
or silver or precious stones, but in cheering the
hopeless, in raising the lowly and in assisting the
weak, so that when at last we are called to final re
freshment in "that house not made with hands, but
eternal in the heavens," we may not be found de
linquent on the h-dvt-rs kept by the Refolding
Adk'1 tlirre; and with tLeae dues paid our path
will bo made luminous through the ways of dark
ness leading tip toevcrlMHtitig love and liK'ht, wl re
the fundamental prim-iplrs of Fioo Mawnry find
exprCKKion in the inwrtitablo dvnaiuiV of tl.o mil
ver aud in the wisdom and mercy of God. (IOtid
and continued applause.)
Orator Dayton then gave tl.o Muni toast of tho
evening, "Our Past Masters." which on cell by tho
Orator was rcsjtoiidt-d to by
BuoTiiiru J. A. Hamiixoek,
r.M. He said :
WoRMiiprra Sin. Bi-.eturkn: I am called by
our Brother Orator to respond iu behalf of "Onr
Past Masters." For the last hour, this Banquet
Hall hath echoed to eloquent words, stirring the
hearts of all hearers and finding response in
bursts of merited applause. What is there left
for me to say. Fortunately, Li-dory hath it
that the Past "Masters of Honolulu have ever
been distinguished for eitrtme modesty and a
dis-iuclinatiou to make speeches upou iny sub
ject, more especially during the hours of re
freshment. These happy seasons ore brief and
infrequent, and the time therein omjdoyHl of
great value, so that amorg other considerations,
this may perhaps be with them a reason for
"proverbial silence." Tradition, also, bath it,
that when compelled to epeuk our Past Masters
never talk about themselves wisely deeming
that during their incumln-ncy of the Chair,
their suffering brethren had heard full enough
upon niutteis personal. We are taught that
Masonry is in more ways than one a " Pro
gressive Art." That the Institution is both pro
gressive and prosperous in this Kingdom wo
have ample evidence. No ltettcT example can
the cldi is have, than lo behold tbn rising gen
eration of out land, so soon ns tiny anivn nt
proper age steadily and flimly climbing tha
same mystic ladder, that their Kiris ascended in
years gone by. We have further evidence of
progress in the increase of our membership by
brethren, who having learned the mysteries of
Masonry in othtr lands, have knocked at the
door of our Island Kingdom, seeking a
fraternal greeting aud a home. Aud Masonry
may well flourish here. Hawaii nei set like
an emerald cluster upon the braving Iiohoiii of tho
Pacific, contains within herself all the elements
that should bind men together in fraternal yiu
pulhy. She has Won blessed with a growth iu
civilization and prosperity rarely if ever rxceeded
in the history of nations. Within three score of
years she hath worthily taken all the degrees of
Progress in the Ocean, aud in every Hense of the
word, passed from darkness into light."
Blessed with a generous soil, that cornucopia
like yields a harvest rich enough to sweeten
the whole Pacific coast, she is fostered by
Reciprocity Treaty with the Great Iti public, who
can supply all our wants in both the ut ccshitics
and luxuries of life, and who in return uenda all
our produce, yea! even were it ten times more.
An Ex-Chancellor of Hawaii hteered the boat,
and a Past Master of our sister lodge, Le Progres
de l'Oceauie, pulled the stroke oar, that wou for
Hawaii thi- treaty of rcciprocit3'. Let ns trust
that the term of years named ns its firi-t limit
that fortunate number seven (so highly e steemed
by the craft) may prove a harbinger of the
long continuance of a bond that hath prospered,
both a nation grt utandn nation small. Endowed
with a climate that makes the land emphatically
the poor man's paradise there is ntundant
room for honest labor, and u true man need have
no fear that he will e ver suffer from hunger or
from cold. As Hawaii prospers so must piosper
every institution, every individual who can claim
this land by the dear name of home. Brktubikj
There is one of the early lensous of the craft
that cannot but impress itself upon those who
are assembled at this season of refret-hmcnt ; a
lesson which perhaps, sou c onr visiting brethren
may to-night have seen practically illustrated for
the first time. It is that portion of the charge
wherein the novitiate is taught that "Free
"masonry is so esteemed as an honorable order
" that even monarch, have, at times, exchanged
' the sceptre for the trowel to join in our mya
" teries and aid us in our labors." To this fact
is due in no small degreo the prosperity in Ha
waii of an Order that bears upon its active roll
the name of one whom wo greet to-night an.
sovereign, as host, and ns brother.
The Orator having announced this to be the lat
pcoch of the evening, the Brethren Joined hands'
and to the accompaniment of tho bnnd, they joined
heartily in siiiKmg "Auld Lang Hvne." "shortly
before midnight tho Brethren tosili leave of their
ltoyal host, each and evcryomi fouling highly
pleased with the Krand success t.f the entertain
ment. This 27th December will long lo looked
upon as a red letter day in tha history of Free
masonry in Honolulu. The gencrul aspuct of new
ness about the edifice, the glowing carpets and
hangings, bright flowers and verdure tastefully
spread around the tables, hnppy faces gathered
around the festive board, were indeed refreshing to
witness. Tho music us appropriately Kpji ited and
iterfortned in that first class style or which the
loyal Hawaiian Band bus U'come so renowned.
'i'he Lodge Lo l'rogmi of which His Majesty is
