-. lusonlc Note.
At the meeting of Columbia Commandery
Friday ovenlng tho Order of tho Temple was
conferred, and tho usual largo number of peti
tions acted upon. The Sir Knights, out of
regard for the weather, appeared in fatigue
uniform, althongh the Recorder, as prom
ised, introduced an innovation which materi
ally reduced the temperature. With Dyren
forth's rain producer and Plttis' temperature
reducer the latter part of tho nineteenth cen
tury will become famous for the advances
made by science in the aid of suffering hu
manity. Noble Aaron Bell has demonstrated tho fact
that he is one of the most energetic and versa
tile members of Almas Temple. On the recent
excursion ho was chairman of one Important
committee and also served on several others
with a degree of efficiency which surprised
even the most ardent believers in his capabili
ties for looking after the comfort of his
Mt. Vernon Royal Arch Chapter No. 3 will
resume its regular 6emi-monthly convocation
on next Monday evening, the 24th instant, at
7:30 p. m. The Most Excellent High Priest
hopes that a largo attendance of companions
may be present. The crand master degree
will doubtless bo conferred.
Brother James H. Trimble, after a safe and
pleasant voyage to Boston by sea, Is now stop

that he is enjoying all the comforts he could
Noble B. E. Fugett and mother are so
journing for a few weeks at Harper's Ferry.
Brother Bob has been fishing, and made some
Peutalpna Lodgo No. 23 will hold a special
communication on Monday evening, for the
purpose of conferring the third degree.
Past Master O. S. Fermiu has returned to

In Findlay, Ohio.

XHe Tenure of Oillco Disapproved.
In foreign countries tho highest Masonic
officer Is in several jurisdictions hereditary,
and in several systems life tenure of office is
.a common thing. In the United States with
its broad ideas of liberty and with a practical
exempli fieation of the blessings which result
from a representative form of government
constantly before them, the Masonic fraternity
have in nearly every instance limited official
terras, never, however, destroying eligibility
for office by reason of former service. Tho
Supreme Council, which Is tho governing bodv
of the Scottish Rite, is composed, when its
number is complete, of thirty-threo members
who hold office for life. All vacancies are
Jilled by tho survivors. Tho officers of tho
Supremo Council are also selected for life.
This has been the case in this jurisdiction
until now, although originally the Supreme
Council consisted of only nine members. Tho
members aro selected as far as possible from
the several States comprising tho jurisdiction,
without reference to tho number of the
subordinate bodies or membership in such
State. Tho object is to have one member
from each State. Tho Grand Commander,
Albeit Pike, 33d degree, having died last
April, Mr, Batchelor, of New Orleans, -who Is
the Lieutenant Grand Commander, became at
once, under their lawB, acting Grand Com
mander. Ho will bo continue until tho next
meeting of the Supremo Council, which will
bo held in this city in October, 1892. At that
time the successor of Albert Pike -will bo
elected, more than probable for a short term
of years, as tho sentiment of tho members
appears to be setting strongly in favor of a
representative form of government and tho
abolition of tho life tenure of office.
Sir Harrison Dlnginan'a Uumjuot.
A number of tho friends of tho Eminent
Commander of Washington Commaudery No,
1, Sir Harrison Dlngman, celebrated his re
turn to tho city Saturday evening last by
tendering him an elaborate supper at Budd's.
The compliment was very highly appreciated
by tho distinguished Mason in whose honor
it was given. After discusslug a delightful
menu, Eminent Sir John II. Alcott, opened
the 6peech-making with an extremely happy
"welcome home" to Sir Knight Dlngman,
who, in reply, after alluding to tho manner in
which ho appreciated tho feelings which
prompted tho entertainment tendered him by
tho assembled gentlemen, gave a 6hort
synopsis of his journey through tho Western
stated, and alluded In a vejy enthusiastic
manner to tho courtesies and unbounded
v. vitality of the Western f ratere and Shrluers.
until his return tho uniform kindness which
ho received he attributed not alone to tho fact
that ho was corresponding secretary of the last
Triennial Commlttoo, but more to his official
position as Eminent Commandor of Wash
ington Commandery and tho desire which
sir knlghta of other jurisdictions havo
to honor any of their f raters who hall from tho
Capital City. In several of tho cities visited
tho degrees of knighthood were specially
worked during Ills stay, while the Shrlnors also
called "oxtra occasions" for his benefit., Tho
numbor of banquets he attended was some
thing remarkable, aud tho entire trip was full
of courtesies aud expressions of good will. J.
II. Wardlo responded to the next toast in one
of his characteristic speeches, congratulating
Sir Knight Dlngman on his safe rctHrn and ex
pressed tho sontlmonts of tho company in pro
posing his health a second time. Sir Knight
Aaron Boll, to whom on this, as well as on
several other occasions of thlsklnd.tho honor of
originating tho idea of tho welcomo is due, pro
posed thohcalth of our absent iutmato friend of
all prcsent,Sir Leonardo. Wood. Tho toast was
drank standing and a telegram expressing tho
regret of all present at his inability to bo with
them was sent to tho absent ono. Sir Kulghts
Thompson,Rhlnchardt, aud Gcorgo II. Walker
also mado speeches applicablo to tho occasion
and "mine host," Georgo Budd, who is a
prominent Knight Templar, also emphasized
tho congratulatory spirit of the ovening by an
eloquent and happy address. After again ex
pressing his thanks for tho h onor which had
been tendered him, those present severally
congratulated Mr, Dlngman, aud tho party

suspiciously. Tho next time ho would ask Us

not, but In reality wo hadn't tho remotest
Idea whoro wo were. Nor did wo care. That
was a featuro of tho enjoyment. At tho sixth
faro ho evidently considorcd us escaped lunatics
and kept au eye on us. Aftor halt a dozen
more collections, however, ho seemed so
anxious about us that out of sheer pity
wo told him wo wore just riding for
tho "fun of it." Ho then became moro at
ease, and seemed to regard ub Blmply as
harmless imbeciles. And so after flvo or six
hours of unalloyed bliss the 'bus would sud
denly turn Into tho Strand whoro wo got up,
after having been goodness knows where,
aud wo would climb down feeling as though
wo wcro leaving tho homo of our childhood.

These restaurants uro so comfortablo and
appetizing over here. 1 don't know what it is
about them, but they don't look so bleak and
unsociable as ours. There Is a cozy, restful
air about them that adds not a little to tho
enjoymont of ono's meal. My favorlto ordor

"Bolter not say anything about your Bass,"
Smith say6, a6 ho looks over this lost pago of

wcro nono tho worso for It," I retort. "And
besides," I continue, "you know what a hor
rible case of dyspepsia! havo and I only take
it for medicinal effect, and as for you it would
simply bo suicidal, for you to drink London
water." And ho murmcrs something about
"that not going," and again takes up his
book. That steak and those vegetables and
that Bass wasn't so bad after all. I oupposo
it must bo in thp cooking, for I understand
most of tho be consumed In London is
American. But! Loudou steak is delicious.

For four yoars whllo at college, I think I lived
on prunes, oatmeal, and potatoes, and I have
over since considered theso 60-called articles
of diet as being about equal to sawdust. But
I ate my potatoes, all of them, and enjoyed
them, too. After dinner it was delightful to

Colony of Convicts.
Au Englishman writing from Frcmantlc,
Western Australia, professes to havo discov
ered that the reason why that huge colony is
not equal, at least, to New South Wales and
Victoria, is that tho dominant class out thcro
is composed of well-to-do men, who were
themselves convicts or aro sons of felons sent
to the colony when it was a penal settlement.
Ho says: "I buy my tobacco from a man
who, on board of a ship, cooked for din
ner tho mate's head that some of the crow
had cut off. I often havo business with a
master-mariner, whose crime was rolling a
man about up and down tho deck In a cask,
with nails driven through it, until ho died.
My meat I buy from a wealthy butcher, who
was also sent out for his country's good. A
wealthy bookseller is also an old hand. A
leading jeweler and -watchmaker Is another.
I touch my hat to a gentleman as ho drives to
business in his carrlagc-and-palr, who was
sent hero for life for scuttling ships, thereby
losing crows and ships. A celebrated and
wealthy pearl merchant and storekeeper, with
whom I am well acquainted, camo horo for
forging Russian bank notes. Since I have
been hero, I havo been In almost dally inter
course with two murderers, ono clover em
bezzler, who was town supervisor here and is
now in durance vile; flvo or six forgers and
thieves innumerable; so, you see, I havo seen
a variety of the convict profession."
