Our attention was called to an ar ticle in the Star and Times of March - snH t Th ?vnnn5 of the article was that the complete roll of 55 Ma sons of this country were located at E and 3d streets, n w., so far as our Council is concerned, we know no one of the said name, and while we have the greatest respect in the world . for the Pike Faction, we would sug gest in the future that complete roll under our obedience" be inserted in stead of complete roll of 35s Masons. In the United States a poor man has as much right to be a Mason as a rich man ; furthermore, tnere are five lac tions of Scottish Rite Masons in the District of Columbia, three white, two black ; each faction has a large num ber of 330 Masons on its rolls. In this great republic we are lree and equal and no one set of men have exclusive jurisdiction over the United States out side of the proper Government officials. I was attracted further by an article in TkePostoi March 21, 1S97, part 2, headed Voodoism or Magic. In the second column my attention was at tracted by the description of the Tan or Egyptian Cross.

It was a green stone of prentagonel form ; at the bottom of which was a fish in the center a Solomon's Seal. At the top the four Chaldaic letters, Jod, He, Van.
