Lodge No. 1 Insists, Upon Further In
vestigation of Affairs of Grand
At an assembly of Lodge No. 1,
Caballeros de Honor held in its hall
Thursday nijit, a resolution was1
adopted declaring that the lodge was
still not satisfied with the results of
the investigation oT*the Grand Lodge
transactions, and urging that an ex
traordinary grand convention of the
order he held at Brownsville as soon
a*i possible. The grand officers of
the lodge were presen and consented
to call an extraordinary convention,
as soon as the constitutional require
ment that fourteen lodges of the or
der shall request that such a conven
tion he tailed. The grand officers,
in fact, had announced previously
hat they would call a grand extra
ordinary convention as soon as pos
Geo. P. Warner, state examiner of
insurance fraternities, was present
by request, and not in any official
capacity. He addressed a Tew words
i to the meeting, saying that, while
I tit' had found some {Regularities in
the methods by which the grand
lodge conducted business, yet hf
hoped, for the good of the order, that
the differences between the factions
Would be healed. \
Objected to Report.
f On Thursday ^ternoon, Jose i
Manzano, chancellor of Lodge Xo. 1,
and Francisco Gonzales, secretary of
the loge, called on The Herald, to
say that they strongly objected to
the report In Thursday's Herald, to
the effect that th? Grand Lodge had
been vindicated by the investi
gation made by the state examiner.
They insisted that a large number of
the members of the order were dis
satisfied with the administration of
the Grand l^odge and would demand
an extraordinary grand convention,
and that, unless there should be a
change, a number of lodges would
drop out of the order.
The Herald assured the committee
hat it had only published such re
port as had been furnished it by the
state examiner. Mr. Warner, and the
officers of the grand lodge, that it
had understood the differences were
healed and had been rejoiced to pub
lish the fact, hoping that peace was
restored and the prosperity of the
order assured.

As matters now stand, it appears
that the case of the grand lodge will
go before the extraordinary grand
convention, to be called at Browns
ville soon, for final settlement.

Exposes Fake Reports on Bolivian
Mines Sent Out to Boom Lands in
That Republic.
Washington, D. C., June 7—A fake
•letter, signed by an American min
ing prospector named Ferguson, tell
ing of rich deposits of gold along
the Tipuani river, in Bolivia, has
drawn a large number of Amerlcmu
/• . « '
prospectors to tha: country, accord
ing to a warning issued from the
department of state. The letter has
been circulated widely among the
mining communities of the Western
States and Alaska.
An investigation by American
Minister Knowles in Bolivia has
shown that the Ferguson letter was
circulated by a German fugitive
-from justice, now resident in Bolivia,
who is the owner of large tracts of
land along the Tipuani river. The
reports of gold were circulated to
.boom the land.
Despite the discouraging informa
tion given to some of the Aorrrjcan
prospectors upon arriving in La Paz,
Bolivia, several of them decided to
visit the Tipuani district and see for ,
themselces whether deposits existed
there. Certain of the«e prospectors I
have reported that there fe uo gold ^
to be obtained by the ordinary meih- ,
ods of placer mining and that the
Tipuani is not worth one-half the
poorest river in Alaska.
The Bolivian government has done
everything in its power to help out
the American prospectors who have
already arrived in Bolivia, 6aya the
state department. There are gold
deposits in certain sections of Bolivia
and at the suggestion of Minister
Knowles the Bolivian government,
when made aware of the plight of the
urospeetors lured to he Titu'ni dis
trict, opened a bureau of mines and
placed at the service of the prospec
tors engineers and guides to take
them to those regions where It/Is be
Ueved gold in paying quantities may
be found.
t\ 9
' It is still possible that these efforts
of the BoMvtan government may re
turn to the prospectors a reward for
their long journey, and at the same
time prove of grfat benefit to tha Bo
f *
ftvian government by opening up
mining fields which have heretofore
remained unexplored for want of
proapactora. *
