N'o doubt .Brother Bliss, from the position
you occupy, and the Jewel you

yourself that few persons know
more of the secrets or Masonry than

privilege to reveal to you this evening.

Rogers, E. S. Lodge No. ISC, Phlladel- l(
phia. Pa.; John Goshorn and G. L. j|
Thompson, of Wheeling lodge No. 128, _
A M. M. lodge was opened in due t
form, minutes read and approved. Bro. j
J. M. Warden. S. W., and A. Dunlevy, t
S. D., now entered and took their re- e
spectlve stations. j
I am thus particular In copying the .
minutes of the meeting that our present
omccrs may Jearn now faithfully their I
predecessors attended the meetings of ,(
the lodge. Twenty-one ollicers and
members, out of a membership of probably
lcs3 than one hundred, were present.
Of those oncers and member# of No.
101 present fifty-one years ago, all save fl
one are believed to bo dead. James /
Luke, of Missouri, a brother of the late
Mr. Kobert Luke, was In the city last .
fall attending the funeral of his
brother. I tnet him then, and I pre- n
suine he is still living. ft
A few of us can remember Brothers
Sights, Day, Houston, Norton and Bal- .
ley, of No. 101, and John Goshorn, .of .
Wheeling Lodge No. 128. The others
you alone of all the present lodge mem- .
b?-rs can have a distinct recollection.
Fifty-one years ago the telegraph was ?
a mystery and a wonder. Invented
thirteen years before. The Mexican '
war of 1S17-48 had made a hero of General
Zach Taylor, and he wns elected
President of the United States, and In- ,
augurated March 4. IS 10, seven months .
before ho wis made a M. M. The city ,
of Chicago wa? mere tmdlng post or a
half-dozen huts. Had an angel told P
President Taylor that In lens than llfty *
years the President of the United States .
could sit In his room In Washington "
and converse with frlr-nds In Chicago,
old "Rough and Iteady" would have .
made It hot for the angel. Wheeling I
was without a railroad for three years
after; the first train on the Baltimore &
Ohio came Into Wheeling In ISM.
Hut this Is not a secret to you. Our 11
necret Is that your brethren of Ohio ;
Lodge having passed by so many recur- u
ring anniversaries and birth days of our u
loved tylcr, without recognition, when v
they discovered that the date. Monday,
October 1. 1900. was the exact anniversary
or your bring made a M. M., con- r
eluded It as good time as any for a date ii
of kindly recognition, hence they have
Invitediyou Inside the lodge this evening
that the brethren tnay Ret acquainted
with you and be able to vouch
for you as a M. M. In case you were to t
visit with them In some oHmr JurlHdlc- K
There are others present who have a
something to say, hence I conclude,
wishing you many pleriKant returns of
anniversaries and birthdays.

"German Day has nothing to do with
politics or parties. More than anything
else German Day is a patriotic
affair, and more commemorative of
what happened in America than In Germany.
We are proud that the Gorman
