M. of La Fayetto Lodge No. 19, represents that body in St. John's Mito Association, and is very earnest in his efforts to promote tho usefulness of the latter organi zation. Tho board of High Priest, having In charge the Chapter Chamber of tho Masonic Temple, havo recently added some attractive features in tho way of new decorations for tho official stations. Tho address of James E. nasford, tho W. M. of Acacia Lodge No. 18, is 1720 Fifteenth street. Brother Hasford is quite prominent in Templar circles, and is a very active member of Columbia Commandery Drill Corps. E, J. Bornhnrd, W. M. of Lebanon Lodge No. 7, is also M. E. H. P. of Washington Chaptor No. 2, although tho two offices reaulro much time and attention, yet tho duties are per lormed by Brother Bernhard with characteristic energy. La Fayetto Royal Arch Chapter No. 5 has been very busy during tho past week. On Tuesday evening tho M. M. degreowas worked, and Friday tho same chapter conferred tho P. and M. E. M. dogrees. On next Tuesday tho Royal Arch will bo worked. Pentalpha Lodco No. 23 is to bo congratu lated upon the fact that tho three first officers are so well known and popular. Wm. J. Nay lor, thoW. M.; F. O. McCleary, S. W., and Harry W. Smith, J. W., are probably the youngest and among tho most efficient officers in the jurisdiction. Tho affairs of Potomac Chapter No. 8 will bo presided over this year by J, F. R. Appleby as M. E. II, P., Frank P. Davis as E. K., O. C, Graham as E. 8., the Veteran F. W. Storch as Secrotary, and Charles Becker as Treasurer, All of the above-named have a wide acquaintance in tho different Masonic circles, the E. 8., Com panion C. O. Graham, being also Worshjpful Master of aeorgo C. Whiting Lodge No. 22, which meets in tho same hall. Washington Council No. 1, Royal and Select Masters, held their stated monthly meeting In the Sanctuary last evening, tho date (last secu lar day of the month) falling upon Saturday night. The degrees of Royal and Select Mas ters were couferred in full form, with the fol lowing cast: A. H. Holt, Th. 111. Master; Wil liam 06car Roome, R. Ill, Deputy Master, David M. Cridler, 111. P. O. of Work; George E. Cor son, Recorder, and James Lansburgh, Treas urer. The work was very impressively ren dered on a largo class of candidates. These de grecs are beginning to attract considerable at tontion, and the prospects arc that tho council will be very busy during the coming year. This fact Is very pleasant to tho officers and mem bers of tho body who are very anxious that tho conncil degrees should become as well known hero as in other jurisdictions. Several of the newly elected masters aro very earnestly endeavoring to enhance that cordial feeling of hospitality and welcome for which this jurisdiction is justly famed. W. J. Naylor and George J. Fritch, respectively of Pentalpha Lodge No. 23 and Potomac Lodge No. 5, aro especially kind in this particular, and under their administration both lodges will materially add to their reputation of being among tho most genial and pleasant bodies to visit in the city. Mount Vernon Chapter No. 3 is now holding special convocations weekly. On Monday evening last tho Royal Arch was worked, and a special has been called for to-morrow night for tho Past and Most Excellent. Companion Cridler, the M. E. H. P., Is very earnest in his desiro to promote the best interests of tho chap ter, ani is receiving a cordial and warm support from his officers. The large attendance of tho Past High Priests at each conclave is very grati fying to tho younger members of tho chaptor. Periodically, some Rudyard Kipling stylo of satirist, a new school who find fault with every thing, except their own sweet selves, crops out in Masonic journalism and begins to jump with both expansive feet upon the unoffending matter-of-fact, mlnd-your-own-buslness Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. On tho sea of Masonic writing tho editorial barks usually Ho safely moored In calm and peaceful harbors of frater nity, with plenty of lee-way in case of tempests, to escapo the rocks of discontent hidden in the breakers of controversy, but when tho winds of egotism begin to blow tho staunchest craft is In danger of draglng her anchors and breaking up on tho shoals of personal ambition. These at tacks upon tho Shrine arc ill-advised and lack the first element of all good arguments truth. The Shrine has passed tho experimental stage, it is hero for good, and Its foundation is builded on more than one Imperishable principle, while its connections and associations should insure a proper amount of respect and a duo propor tion of consideration, especially from those who, through Ignorance, aro incapable of forming any comparative estimate of Us worth, Shnners usually pay no attention to these undignified attacks, but, like tho burly Englishman who frequently was thrashed by his small but violent wife, when asked why ho put up with such treatment, very philosophically remarked: "Hit pleases 'er and hit don't 'urt me."
