A Good Attendance and in Every Respect
Successful Communication--A Partial
Record of the Proceedings His
torical and Personal Sketches.
There are within the borders of
our city this week assembled the
representatives of an institution
whose origin ante-dates, beyond
cavil.by seven centuries the Chris
tian era, and that has witnessed
the rise and fall Of empires and dyn
asties, and has grown and flourish
ed throughout all the immutable
changes ot time the Grand Lodge
of Freemasons of the Indian Ter
ritory. The first session, proper, ot the
present communication was held
Tuesday morning, but according
to custom a school of instruction
was conducted the three preceding
To endeavor to give even a brief
sketch of the
HISTORY OF MASOSEY
is to encounter criticism at every
step. There Is a popular belief
that Masonry had its origin at the
erection of King Solomon's tem
ple, but the historians of the fra
ternity do not so write.
Heboid, an eminent French
scientist, writing in 1860, fixes the
origin at 715 B. CMi the date at
which-Numa Pompilfus, the Ro
man emperor, instituted the Col
lege of Builders. The satne au
thor, however, intimates that the
mysteries of the Egyptians.passing
through Moses to the Jewish peo
ple, were afterwards disseminated
among the Greeks and Romans,
and by them introduced in part in
to the societies named. But the
Masonry of those days is designat
ed as"operative,"and that practic
ed at this time as "speculative,"or
" philosophic;" none, however,
' doubt its connection.
The latter may be said to have
begun in London on June 24, 1717,
when the four London lodges
formed themselves into agrand
lodge and named their flrst grand
master. One of the leading spirits
in this revival was "James Ander
son, a Scotch Presbyterian minis-
fpr who conmiled the "Book of
The beginning of Masonry in the
United States was the formation of
First Lodge, subsequently called
St. John Lodge, at Boston, July
30, 1733, by Henry Price, holding
& commission from Viscount Mon
tague, who was at that time grand
master of the first organized grand
lodce of England, appointing said
Price provincial grand master for
Time and again Masonry has
been interdicted by the monarchs
of Europe, chiefly through the in
fluence of the pope and clergy; and
it has been asserted within a
month at Madrid that the revolt in
the Philippines against Spain was
largely attributable to the Freema
sons. But, judged by the declara
tion of the great apostle, "by their
fruits ye shall know them." the ver
dict on Freemasonry will bo a fa
vorable one from unbiased sources.

There are at present 102 subor

each lodge the master and senior
andjunior wardens. In addition,
all Masons in good standing are
privileged visitors, and as a ses

The grand lodge of the Indian
Territory was organized at Caddo,
I. T., October 5, 1S74. Three
subordinate lodges were represent
ed, those of Eufaula, Doaksville.
and Caddo. The first grand mas
ter was Granville McPherson. The
next session of the grand lodge
was held at Eufaula, which in the
records is designated as the first
annual communication. Here, for
the first time, Bro. J. S. Murrow's
name appears in the list of officers
as grand lecturer; it is a pleas
ure to say that he is today still a
part of the grand lodge, and ever
since the first year has been so
for a great many years as secre
tary. By the way, Bro. Morrow,
in the capacity of grand master,
laid the corner stone of the old
Methodist church in this city
about twenty years ago.

present at the session in this city
twenty-one years ago and is with us

The town of Caddo was next
honored by the grand lodge, and
the following year, 1S77, the third
annual communication was held at
Vinita, beginning September 4th.
All the lodges, eight in number,
were represented, and two char
ters were granted to McAlester
and Tahlequah. The grand lodge
officers present were:
Granville McPherson, G. M.
W. L. Mills, D. G. M.

G. W. Stidbam, as G. Tres. "
R. P. Jones, G. Sec.
J. S. Murrow, G . L.
At this time the growth of Ma
sonry in the Indian Territory be
gan to take on no mean propor
tions and four district deputies
were appointed, as follows:
Silas Rogers, Chickasaw Dist.
J. McD. Coody, Creek Dist.
Chas.E. Goodney, Choctaw Dist.
John L. Adair, Cherokee Dist.
A resolution was passed, as
shown by the proceedings, thank
ing Vinita lodge for entertaining
the grand lodge "free of cost."
The omcers elected at that session
J. S. Murrow, No. 4, G. M.
Harvey Lindscy, No. 1, D.G.M.

From that time, twenty-one
years ago, until the present, Vinita
has not bad the honor of entertain
ing the grand lodge, and it will
readily be understood that she is
leaving nothing undone which is
calculated to add to the pleasure
of the occasion. The hall of the
local lodge has been enlarged in
its seating capacity, committee
rooms provided and quarters have
been secured for all visitors.
The hall was beautifully deco
rated by the ladies of the Eastern
Star, the five colors of their order
intermingled with the stars and
stripes producing a patriotic effect
so popular at this time. Portraits
oi three masters of Vinita lodge
have just been hung Dr. B. F.

the reception and"hanquet Tuesday
night, at which a considerable
number of visitors were present:
Most Worshipful Grand Master,
Brother Masons, Ladies and Gen
tlemen: In behalf of Vinita
Lodce No. 5. Ancient, Free
and Accented Masons, and of
the good people of Vinita, we ex
tend to the crand lodne of our
order in the Indian Territory a
sincere welcome on this the occa
sion of its 24th annual assembly.
We welcome you because we are
glad to have so many of the good
citizens from every pari oi me
territory assemble within our
midst, feeling that to meet each
other face to fnco and interchange
our thoughts and Ideas in plezsant
discourse will elevate and inspire
our social and spiritual natures.
But, my brothers, wo welcome
you especially on this occasion as
the official repiesentatives ofnhe
several constituent lodges of our
noble brotherhood who constitute
the grand lodge of the Indian Ter
ritory, sent here to assemble in
Every organization must have a
head for business and other pur
poses to hear reports upon the
progress of the work, to adopt
rules and laws for future govern
ment and thus promote prosperity
by preserving stability ami har
mony in the institution. Thus as
Ancient, Free and Accepted Ma
sons this grand lodge has assem
bled, as is its annual custom, for
the purpose of reviewing the work
of this jurisdiction, forming a
closer acquaintance and relation
between the bretheren, that the
tenets of Masonry may be forever
Masonry stands out boldly as
the most ancient original organi
zation ot any character in exis
tence. There have been hundreds
of political, religious and social
institutions born, flourished, de
cayed and forgotten, while Mason
ry has not only vanquished all
opponents, but is stronger today
than ever before.
Some sav that Freemasonry can
be traced back as far as Noah's
ark, that it was conspicuous in
the construction of the Tower of
Babel, the Pyramids and tho Tem
ple of Solomon. I shall not at
tempt to establish this as a fact
but will simply state that there
seem to bo some good reasons, if
we can believe history, for specu
lation leading to such conclusions.
Masonry was undoubtedly estab
lished at a very early day in the
the world's history and its found
ers, as have been its teachers and
leading followers ever since, were
men ot tho highest mental devel
opment. It had ns origin in a
constructive as contra distin
guished from inventive age; at
a time when men conceived the
idea of building large and beauti
ful edifices which required the
work of men skilled in the art of
cutting, polishing and fitting in
place, stones and other material
with a view to symetry and har
mony of design, so that when the
buildinrr was completed it would
possess the combined features of
durability, strength and beauty.
In this manner the science of
architecture was developed prin
cipally by masons as one of the
These stone masons and other
skilled workmen found it condu
cive to their obtaining employ
ment in that early day when
they had to travel long distances,
from city to city, wherever large
edifices were being constructed, to
have a system of signs and sym
bols whereby one mason would be
enabled to know and recognize
another, which would be a guar
antee that each was what he
represented himself to be to the
other. This was practical Free-
'masonry, and was found to be a
useful, profitable and vory agree
able relation to the craft.
It is generally conceded that
modern or speculative Freemason
ry as we practice it today, which
originated in England during the
17th century, while not directly
connected with architecture, yet
tho social and moral advantages
experienced by those eaaly prac
tical masons as a result of their
organized brotherhood, was the
moving power that caused the
institution of our organization,
founded upon a belief in the wis
dom of Almighty God and eternal
principles of truth, its object being
to teach men to adopt a habit of
intelligent thinking and to en
courage the practice of moral and
social virtue. It acknowledges
the Divine Fatherhood and the
universal brotherhood of mankind.
It is as broad as the world, extends
from earth to heaven and compre
hends all that is good, grand, noble
and beautiful in the universe. Its
only religion is best expressed in
the golden rule; and only politics
is loyalty to country and freedom
1 he uninitiated homelimes suppose-it
pretends to embrace a sys
tem of religion, which every Mason
of intelligence knows to be a mis
take. It only inculcates and
undertakes to instill in the hearts
and minds of its members an in
telligent understanding of those
principles of morality and virtue
that every man should possess as
good citizens and which every man
must possess belore he can become
a christian. Every intelligent,
liberal christian man who is physi
cally sound would be eligible for
Masonic honors, while many Ma
sons who are well informed in the
work have never made a profession
However, there are many Ma
sons who are christians in deed
and thought who are never so
acknowledged by the orthordox
christians of the day. The phil
osopher and poet, Leigh Hunt
who Lain persuaded to believe
was a typical Mason expresses
the belief and foretells the reward
of the average Mason in the fol
lowing beautiful language:

The church and other religious
and political organizations under
different names, have on many oc
casions declared bitter war upon
Freemasonry,,J3ut it has withstood
all onslaughts and as the Adaman
tine rocks of Gibraltar have for
ages stood serenely while the
waves of the Mediterranean have
lashed themselves into foam, so
Freemasonry, without offering de
fense or excuse, has allowed its
enemies to destroy themselves in
their efforts to destroy it, and its
nrincinles are now more firmly
and deeply rooted in the hearts of
its followers than ever.
Secrecy has always been a car
dinal principle of Masonry for the
reason that a "wise man keepeth
his own counsel." If the secret
work of Masonry or any other se
cret society should be published,
the vulgar and uneducated who
could not grasp its meaning would
endeavor in their flippant way to
ridicule the solemn teachings of
the order, and while all Masons
know that there is nothing a fair
minded critic could truthfully say
to it? disparagement, yet they
have ever deemed it wise to ob
serve a degree of secrecy and thu3
give the public nothing to talk
Some of the symbols used by the
craft as the sun, moon, planetary
system, lily, and many others,
were selected through admiration
and love of nature's most beauti
ful handiwork as being emblem
atical of, and by which to illustrate
tho sublime lessons taught in
The square, compass, plumb
level and lamb's skin as well as all
other insignia, aro each suggestive
of deep moral lessons, wincn oy
reference to these simple instru
ments aro easily illustrated and
readilv retained in the memory
Many, I fear, fail to comprehend
tho deeper import of theso lessons
and therefore in the same propor
tion fail to practice them. Let
each of us inquire for himself and
iudco of his own worthiness ip
that important matter.
It is not enough to know the
work so as to go through it mo
chanically, but we should over be
mindful of the high and noble and
virtuous lessons we are attempting
"As a man thinketh in his heart
so is he." Whatever a man tin
dertakes to do is, or should be,
what ho has thought over and de
cided to do. Masonry therefore
endeavors to arouse intelligent
thought and inspire enthusiasm in
our undertakings. We realize that
every man, by the grace of God, is
a;free agent, and has his destiny
in his own hands. Wo draw wis
dom from an observance of na
ture's laws and leach that if man
will be virtuous, he may be, and
that if he is virtuous he cannot but
be happy. Like the suffering Re
deemer, he may anil will bo "a
man of sorrows and acquainted
with grief," but his consolation
shall flow like a river, and his
righteousness and happiness
shall roll liko tho waves of a
peaceful sea ' following one after
another, until they bear him to tho
bright and beautiful land beyond
tho tomb. Art thou poor? Art
thou tried by thine infirmities? Art
thou persecuted by enemies? Still
"hope on, hope ever," be tho
motto of thy life. Still be virtu
ous and thy triumph shall be cer
It must not bo forgotten that in
addition to its enemies Free
masonry has had its staunch and
loyal friends in every age and ev
ery land where civilization has
made any degree of progress.
Upon its roster mav be found the
names of many of the noblest men
of their day, including kings,
princes, statesmen, ecclesiastics,
philanthropists and heroes, as well
ns those two distinguished gentle
men and statesmen recently de
ceased, for whom England and
Germany now mourn, William E.
Gladstone and Prince Bismarck.
Therefore, my brethren, I im
plore you to practice the teachings
of Masonry by living lives of love
and virtue, so that when the last
summons comes you will receive a
welcome into the mansion prepared
by the Grand Master of the Uni
verse, and have your brow encir
cled with a crown brighter and
more enduring than tho diadem of
a cloudless sky.
Again I welcome you as my
brothers, and as the Grand Lodge
of the Indian Territory, and ex
press the hope that your delibera
tions may be characterized by wis
dom from the Grand Architect on
high and that harmony for which
our grand brotherhood is noted.

CHECKED Itr A SIOX.
Slieriuau's Troopers Halted by an
emy Without Gun or Words.
From the Richmond Dispatch.
'I saw a regiment of Sheridan's
cavalry halted once by an old Vir
ginian, who had no arms in his
hands, and who didn't speak a
word," said Junius A. Cosby, the
giant sergeant of the second dis-
trict police force.
He did not deign to notico the
incredulous expression which the
Dispatch reporter was trying to
conceal, and trying to squeeze
himself further into his chair,
that is fully three sizes too small
for him, went on:
"It was during the retreat from
Helersburg,' i'u April, 1S65, tho
day before General Lee surrender
pj. I ha J been stationed hero as a
military telegraph operator, but
just betore utenmonu was evacu
ated I was ordered to skedaddle
and join the army. I was suppos
ed to be close to Gen. Lee's head
quarters on the retreat, but I con
sidered myself mighty lucky to
get any place where I could keep
a whole skin and out of reach of
Sheridan's cavalry, that didn't
give us any peace for an hour at
a time. It seems to me 1 was gen
erally with tho wagon train, and
there the trouble was the hottest
for the blue coals would dash in,
destroy a portion of our wagons,
and would then have to get out to
escape the fire our cavalry and in
fantry would pour into them.
"We were getting pretty well
up tho country marching and
fighting all the way when, one
day about noon, I was going it
alone through a piece of woodland,
and came on a beautiful spring,
just at tho edge of afield. I had
not had a inouthfull to eat, except
com sometimes parched and
sometimes raw for about four
days, so I followed tho path out
into tho open, thinking it would
lead to a house. I wasn't mistak
en, for when I got to the edge of
tho woods I saw a comfortable
looking farm house not for off. I
went up to the front gate, and in
to the yard. There was an old
gentleman on the porch, but be
fore I could speak his wife ran out,
crying the Yankees were coming.
"I told them I wasn't aYankee,
but a Confederate soldier without
a meal for four days, and wanted
something to eat. I was at onco
invited in, but before I had a
chance to sit down hardly, the old
man came in oft the porch, ex
claiming the Yankees were com
ing up to the house. I saw through
the front door that what looked
like a regiment of Yankees were
coming along the road and up tho
winding carriage road to the
' 'You aro my son,' said tho
old man, and 1 caught on in a
minute. I wasn't anything more
than a boy, so I thought I could
work something of a baby racket.
I ran out and hid under the wood
pile my telegraph instrument,
which I carried swung over my
shGulder, and then came back and
sat down near the old man on the
front parch. The old man started
to give me some directions about
how .1 was to conduct myself,
when he saw the eoldiers tearing
down the fence along tho road and
turning their horses into his
wheat field. Tho wheat was S or
10 inches high, and of course sev-
appetites would ;ruin the whole
patch in a mighty little time.
" 'My Godl I can't stand that,'
the old fellow said, and he jump
ed up and started down the steps.
He trotted down to the gate and
climbed up and sat on top of one
of the posts. He didn't speak a
word, but he did something worth
more to him then than all the
speeches ever made. He didn't
have anything to shoot with, but
he had something else that beat a
cannon all hollow. I didn't know
then what he did, but I know now
that he made the distress signal of
a Master Mason, iou coulu nave
knocked me down with a feather
when I saw those men begin to
climb into their saddles and ride
out into the road and then fix up
"Then several officers came gal-
lopingup the drive and stopped
at the gate. The old man clam
bered down from bis perch on the
post and then there was a most
fraternal handshake all around.
"The old fellow invited them
all into the house, and I tell you
I felt mighty oqueemish when
they came up on the porch where
I was. One of them said some-
thing about my being lucky not to
have been born in time to take a
part in all the trouble, and then
they all went into the house and
had a drink of old apple brandy.
When they came out the colonel
told his entertainer that a guard
would be placed at the gate and
that his property would be pro
tected. They galloped away, and
and I went in and packed away
under my belt as much cornbread
and fat meat as I could hold. I
then struck out and caught up
with the army. The next day we
surrendered at Appomatox.
"The really remarkable fact of
all this, it seems to mo now, is,
that when I took the masters'
degreo in Masonry, and learned
what it was the eld man did to
hold Sheridan's troopers in check,
ho himself helped to confer the
Frleudljr to Secret Orders.
The national council of Congre
gational chuiches was held some
time ago at Portland, Oregon.
Rev. W. II. Davis, of Newton,
Mass., read the report on secret
societies, which in part was as
"The growth of secret and social
orders during .the past ten years
has been rapid, both in multipli
cation of societies and in members,
the total annual increase in mem
bership being rated at 250,000. In
1S9G the expenditures in benefit
gifts and claims reached the sum
of 640,000,000, while in trans
portation, fees, banquets, testi
monials, regalia and convention
expenses $250,000,000 more were
spent. To theso items the approx
imate sum of 42,000,000 was add
ed for the rental of buildings and
halls for lotjge purposes, thus
making a total of $941,000,000 ex
pended in a singlo year by the
secret societies of tho United
"These organizations are not an
tagonistic in their purposo to the
work of the churches. It would
be unfair to charge clubs with any
purposeful conflict other than that
moral indifference which so largely
obtains in worldly society. Other
widely influential secret orders
put emphasis upon certain funda
mental truths of Christianity, and
demand in the character of their
members those moral qualities
which we associate with religious
standards of life.
"Tho attitude of the Christian
church toward these multitudinous
secret orders should be courteous
and christian, for the church can
not afford to occupy a position of
prejudice and unreasonable hostil
ity upon any question of public
opinion or social habit, for such a
temper at once sacrifices both the
spirit and the power of the christ
The following resolution was
presented for passage:
"Resolved, That we gratefully
recognize the fraternal and philan
thropic purpose of many of the
secret organizations. We deem it
the privilege and the duty of the
church to meet in more generous
and christian ways the social ways
of the neighborhood in which they
arc organized, to the end that
whatever tends to lower the social
and moral tone of the community
may be met and supplanted by
the higher social service and
wanner christian fellowship of the
church of God."
The council accepted the report
and theciminilteo was discharged.
