A STATE JOUMAI, DEVOTED TO THE BTEIESTB OF EDUCATION AID ITS PATBOIS. LITTLE ROCK, ARK NATIONAL GRAND LODGE OF NORTH AMERICA. Pine Bluff, March 28, 1884. To the Editor of the fine Bluff Republican: In your paper, dated March 22, f find annexed article, viz.: “To all it may concern, greeting : “There has been a call issued some time ago for a convention to meet at Morrilton, Ark., in the hall of RII Gleaves Lodge,on the 25th day ot March, for the pur pose of organizing a grand lodge of national compact masons for the state of Arkansas, under the government of the supreme graud lodge of the United States of America. W D Mathews, of Kansas, one of the national grand officers, and P F Hill, grand mas ter of Tennessee, and Rev Mr Young.grand master of the Indian territory, and others will be pres ent.” ‘ This notice speaks of a body which it refers to by the pom pous title of “the supreme graud lodge of America,” and states that “W 1> Mathews, of Kansas, one of the national grand officers, will be present.” It may inter est some of your readers to know who what the body with the tremendously big name is, and why only one of the “national grand officers” will be present upon such an important occasion as the settingup of a grand lodge, when one would naturally sup pose that the national graud mas ter would certainly be present. I propose to answer two ques tions. The body with the big name, ,or “national compact,” as it is called, was, some years ago, an ; organization formed by the col i ored masons of the country, for the purpose of extending ( the i work of the order over the coun ; try, and its original intent is well ■ expressed hv its the “national compact,” that is a mere association of grand lodges i for co-operation in preventing unauthorized and spurious work, i After the body was frrmed, as intelligent masons knew that there was no such body as a ••compact” known to masonry, its name was changed to the “na tional grand lodge of North America,” as will be seen by ref eronee to the printed proceedings of the body which I have in my possession, and from which it at once appears that the writer of the above notice does not even know the correct name of the body he professes to represent. After assuming the name of national grand lodge the body soon proceeded to arrogate to it. self the powers of ,a grand lodge and to hold the grand lodges in other states as subordinates, and it soon became so arbitrary in its ruling and such a regular stealing machine that in a few years near ly every one of the grand lodges withdrew from the “compact.” At present there is not a single state that acknowledges its juris diction. though it still has some followers in some states, among: whom is a small body of men in Tennessee, headed by I’ F Hill, a body formed about two years ago, ; and'not recognized by a single masonic grand lodge in the coun try. According to the constitu tion of this national compact, ar ticle V, the communication of the M W N -G Lodge shall be held triennially, on the first Tuesday in October,” and the 9t.h triennial communication was held, com mencing May 11, 1874, in Louis ville, Ky. At that communica tion there were present, all told, just fourteen persons, five of whom were residents of Louis ville, who held proxies. The grand secretary was blind and deaf and failed to be present with his books and papers, and all the business was transacted in execu tive session. These facts are from the printed report of the proceed ings which ia in my possession and which I am willing to sub mit to the inspection of any per son interested in the matter. The body met again in 1877, at which time the following officers were elected, viz.: Geo Levere, grand master; Lemuel Googins, D G M; W D Mathews, S G W; \V N Cald- ! well, J G W: G W Daniels, j grand secretary; and A Black, grand treasurer. I have in my possession a com munication from W N Caldwell, who was elected GJ W in 1877, as stated above, in which he says; ( “The grand lodge has grounded on the shores of time »nd the crew have all left, now let us see where they ate. G W Levere, their national grand master, was ,in the union of the two grand lodges of Tennessee, June 12. 1882. Lemuel Geegins, N DG M, went in the union, December, 1883; G W Daniels, of Tennessee, N G Sec, went into the union SATURDAY, APRIL 19. 1884. JjJune 12, 1882; A Black, N G Tre®., is dead; W N Caldwell, ■ N G J Warden, has left and went ‘ into the union, October 31,1883. : i There is only one of the elected , officers left, that ia William I) Matthews, the N G S Warden. There has been no election since 1877, at which these men were i elected.” It will be readily seen from the above statements both what the | big body, of which the writer of the above notice does not know < the correct name is, and also why only “one of the grand officers” will be present. It is for the ‘i simple reason that one is all that jis left ot the onoh powerful na tional compact. Since it met in 11877, all of the elective officers, but W D Matthews, have aban i doned it. It should have met on I the first Tuesday in Otetober, but failed to do so because there was uobody left to meet. Os the grand j bodies which still adhere to the j old defunct fraud, therearo three, • the P F Hill, or John Boyd gang of Tennessee, formed a little over a year ago, a little band in Dela ware once known as “Harmony j Grand Lodge,” from which near I ly all the members, including W ! N Caldwell, the last elected grand junior warden ot national com- i pact, withdrew en masse during the latter part of 1883, and the iso called “King Solomon Grand Lodge,” of Kansas, of which Mathews is grand master. The last named body met in Law rence. Kansas, October Bth, 9th, 10 and 11th, and adopted a reso lution asking the M W N M, “to call the. triennial session of the national grand lodge at as early a day as pract : able.” It has not been found to be “practicable” yet, and the only chance that re mains for it ever to become prac ticable is for the “one of the na e.-offinara” t«L~ mains to »cnd men around ■ through the southern states where the people are not posted on ma sonic affairs ami fool them into: thinking that there is somewhere i a great and powerful organization known by the high-sounding title of the “supreme grand lodge of j the United States of America.” To carry out this impression, men arc slipping around a few of the ' southern states pretending to set up masonic lodges who are in nearly every instance suspended ' ,or expelled masons and a dis- . grace not only to masonry but to I ordinary decency. Their only aim is to get money and get away ' before the people whom they . deceive find out the real facts as to the national grand lodge. In conclusion, Mr Editor, I will re mark that I have in my posses sion the official documents refered to above, and will take pleasure in exhibiting them to any person who may be interested in the matters to which they relate. Very respectfully, J C Corbin. THE ARKANSAS EDITORS. The editors of Arkansas may count on a good time and a pleas ant trip generally, when they' start to this place to attend the press association. It will be a regular ovation trom the time t hey leave home until they return. At Van Buren the hospitable people of that thriving little city will tender them a warm recep tion. At this place they will be feasted and toasted forthree days. | They will then be taken to the, wendertul city of Eureka Springs, I where they will have no cause to [ complain of their treatment. Then j the g od people of Bentonville will want them to visit their live and beautiful little city, and par take of their hospitalities. And finally the metropolis of Western Arkansas, Fort Smith, may have something to say and do in the matter. Brethren, you may just make your arrangements to stay a week in the goodly land. A great majority of the Arkan kansas editors have never visited ‘ this section of the state, although they have read and written much of the “Great Northwest.” VV e are glad that our newspaper brethren will soon have an oppor- . tunity to visit that section of our i great state, to view the beautiful J women and fine-looking men, our grand scenery and fertile region, and share the hospitalities of as , good people as inhabit the globe, , — Fayetteville Democrat. i The Democrat seems disposed ‘ to be rather severe upon Senator ' Judkins as regards the Churchill investigation. It isn’t disposed to consider as a mitigating cir cumstance, that a fellows “hind sights” are sometimes superior to thosd more distant. Little over sights like these do not necessa : rily disqualify a man for position, though it might split the party. THE BOURBON CRUSADE. Gramercy Park is still the dem i ocratic Mecca. Large delegations of the unterriiied visit the oracu i lar old fraud weekly. The amount chewing” and whispering that is going on i in the Tilden mansion, is said to ;be interesting to the beholder. It is further said that the old fellows ,-physical vitality is ample to plan , enemrh deviltry fnr a balfdazon campaigns. The tariff issues it is said, is the sore spot on the dem ‘ ocratic body politic, and it is ■ supposed that Tilden has formu lated a plaster which will hide this old sore. JUDGE JUDKINS. Judge Judkins lias issued his manifesto to the people of Ar kansas, ae a democratic candidate for governor. The judge deals i some hard blows to the leaders of j the democratic party ot this state. ' The address is seasoned with many excellent and timely sug gestions, interspersed with much i good adviee, which will doubtless prove about as effective as water poured upon a ducks back. Your bourbon is not a reformer: he don’t propose to submit tame ly to the currying of the moss from his spinal column. The fact that the judge is a reformer and not a “wah hoss,” is decidedly prejudicial to his political aspira tions. The following from the Phila delphia Press is suggestive, anl rerv liiilL CO the. republicans of some of the other southern states. The Press says: . : *“A basis for harmonious action j has been reached, it is rumored, between the Louisiana republi cans and the sugar plarxtara o£ J that state. The result will be a ; united support of the republican state ticket on the second Mon day in May next and the selec tion of a fusion electoral ticket in ■ the fall, which may give one-half •of the electoral vote of the state ; to the republican presidential can didate.” The action of cer*nin overzeal ous refmblicana in endeavoring to discourage the Logan movement by quoting from some of the gen erals speeches delivered before the war, while he was acting with the j democratic party, is to say the ' least, in bad tfiMo. Doubtless, ; Gen Legau like a majority of the Moses’ of that party, were pro slavery in sentiment, but when it came to choosing between slave- I ry and disunion, he like all true patriots Unhesitatingly took aides with the party that was endeav : oring to maintain the union and the constitution. Out, we say, with all such partizan unfairness. The Wattersonian, “Star-eyed Goddess of reform,” combination, left Pennsylvania in disgust last 1 week, when the Randall boom ’ struck the concern. Randall for ’ president, with the Ohio “Idee” as a platform, is the ticket ot the burghers of the Old Keystone ; state; cr in other words, an avow ed protectionist upon a mean- I ingless platform is the card. Carl isle and Morrison, will, we pre , sume, file a demurer at Chicago, before the racket begins, which will render the subsequent pro ceedings interesting to outsiders. It is generally conceded that Judge Edmonds has the strong est following tor the republican nomination for the presidency, in most of-the New England states, more especially in the Old Bay State. But recent advices would seem to indicate thfit beneath the ; Edmonds preference there is a strong Blaine feeling, which is ! liable to manifest itself openly at any time. There is also a growing j Blaine sentiment in the north . west, which is liable to develop ! into a boom upon a sufficient ; provocation. The Morrison bill fer the re- I vison of the tariff came up in the 1 house on Tuesday last, tor con sideration. As there are ‘some ’ eighty odd members booked for | speeches upon the measure, it is safe to presume that no definite ■ action will be had for several • days to come. The Blaine boom is still boom ing in Pennsylvania,several other ■ places, similar. If it doesn’t prove i a boomerang at Chicago as here i tofore, Bob Ingersoll at least will I be happy. , EX-SENATOR B. K. BRUCE EN ROUTE TO THE CAPITOL. I On Friday. April 11th, just live weeks alter be parged tbrouirn here. Retfigter Bruce arrived In the “City ol Roaee.’* For the first time in fourteen years. The re ception here was not what it would have , been, bad it not been In the midst of po- i litical excitement and the death of eo.ne , ; very prominent citizen*. The ex-.Senavor . was met at the depot by Hou. M. W. Gibb* I and Henry Simkens of the Mansion, who 1 occupied the foremost carriage, which con- veyed the distinguished visitor througu lh» j principal street, calling at Vfce telegraph . office; thwu via lb, Mavaioa office to tne ’ private residence of Hon. M. W. Gibbs, [ , followed by several carriages containing the reception committee, among whom | were: Messrs. J. E. Rector, S. G. Garrett* ! E. A. Fulton, C. W. Keatts, W. A. J. PUil lips. Dr. J. IL Smith, 11. It. Morgan, and . others. All met at Judge Gibbs’ and spent i the evening eating, drinking, smoking and talking over the days of yore. The Sena tor seemed to enjoy himself nobly with his people. He was not what a great many of us thought he was; bis manner was pleas- I ant, kind and agreeable to all that met him. We are sorry that we unintentionally mis represented him, and no doubt, prejudiced the minds of a great many against him. Though the Senator in his kind way says: “Yes, I understand how it Is,” no one ex cept a public servant at tbs Capitol under stands what a man has to contend against. So many incompetent applicants and as many again malcontents are always around the offices of public men, which give us i very ottimes threadbare patience, and we treat good men as we are compelled to treat bad ones. He said that he ratber’tbe gov ernment should enforce the civil service reform bill, as it would rid him of having to answer a large number of complaints over which he had no control. He says no vacancy ever occurs In ths treasury depart ment that the secretary hasn't a person to fill it before it is vacated; hence he hasn’t got the placing of any person out of hit ■ immediate department, under the civil ser- > l vice reform system. No ene has the plac- i I ing nor picking ot who shall fill the places until he receives his notice according to bis examination papers on file at Washing ton. Ii is Just as apt to be a democrat as a republican. During the day Saturday. «»-£•«-**** ■ ruwsii vi ay ton, Col. Logan 11. Roots, 11. I M. Cooper, Judge C. C. Waters, C. E. Kel sey, Prof. J. R. Rightsell, and a large num- I , bor of leading republicans called on the I Senator and they had a tine time. In the afternoon the Judge took the Senator out riding, sight-seeing, which be enjoyed very much. Ob Sunday, at 10 a. m.. the Senator, ac . thr M*»n- ■ ■ slon office a ua'> Tiie Senator was highly pleased at our prospects for ultimate suc cess, anil was surprised to see that we was doing so well. Now It may be recorded that we have buried the hatchet, he'ro and all. At 3 p. ni. in compauy with Judge Gibbs, the Senator attendee the funeral of Robert H. Jones, at Bethel church, where we had ■ seats reserved, that they might sit in the i rear of the pulpit saving the audience, that •II might see the long talked of Biuce, reg later of the treasury, and one of the two cakircd ex-Senatora that has been honored wi ti a seat Senate «f and the Oxly colored man that Lan ever acted preaideqt pro Mta of the United States j senate. **** After leaving the church the Senator called on W. A. Hector, who is now chief i constable of the city of Lltle Hock; when Mr. Bruce was here before lie wan marNhal of the city. 1 bey had pleasant discussions over thing? that had passed between them fourteen years ago. The Senator also mat Prof. J. Corbin. ' who used to run cabin boy with him r»u thu Mississippi river twenty or thirty years ago and they bad a merry chat. On Sunday night the Senator was enter tained and bad supper at .fudge Gibbs’ and ( the following guests participated: J. E. Hector and lady; J. G. I«b and lady: W. E. Joahenberger and lady; Miss A. M. Hich mond; Miss E. Foster and Mrs. Branch. All remained and had a nice time until nearly time for the train going north, which leaves at 11:25 p. m. On taking our names the Senator promised to exchange photos, bid us adieu and we all retired, when the carriage drove up and taken the Senator to the train for Jackson, Miso., via St. Louis, Mo., to be at the Capitol May lot. j FROM MONROE COUNTY. !

Marianna, Ark., April 15, 1884. i Editor Mansion: Dear Sir—Enclosed ♦on will find post ..race order tor 82 00, dos for the Arkausas Mar hu. i ii:i . In looking through your paper you have niuile h mistake In the Seventh clause ot the article headed‘‘Our < ipinlon of the Delegation to Chicago.’* You vay MMr. Jacob Trieber, a very wealthy merchant ot Helena, being the ouly man us UmM nalton >i)lly that attempts to take any stuck in polities or the bu.ineaii of state ’’ I will state that Mr. Jacob Trieber Isa wealthy lawyer ot Helena, and there were two ethers of that ffiationaltty there who i feel an interest in the welfare of their country —Jacob Shaul, a merchant of Ma rianna, and Mr. J. B. Fnedbeftn. a mer chant of OumMUl Yours, truly. Jacob Shaul. We stand corrected. Our review of’be delegation was gotten up in such baste and > without time lor consultation, it was con sequently very Imperfect.

Yet there are mea who think a great party should go before the country with such rot imbedded in it* declaration of principle*.—[Arkansas Gazette. The Pennsylvania republican* heads are i level. They take our view of the matter, I precisely. Tariff on imports tor revenue ; only, is what will subserve the best inter ests of every American citizen, and protect home manuiacturers. Kandali taking the ■ ' protective tariff democrats over to'the re- I publicans is sufficient evidence of the pop ! ular sentiment of the people, irrespective of party affiliations.
