During the past week only two bod ies met in the Temple—Wheeling Cc-ni niandory No. 1. on Monday evening, and Rates Lodge No. 33 on Tuesday 1 evening. At both meetings of tlio bodies, however, there was a good at tendance of members and visitors. No candidates showed up. and work was dispensed with until next meeting. Ou Monday evening Ohio Lodge No. 1 will meet, and there a number of can didates on the way. and no doubt some work will be had on the occasion. On Tuesday evening occurs the regular meeting of Wheeling Lodge No. 5, and there should he a good turn out of its members ami brethren of sister lodges present to assist in putting through a number of candidates who will doubt less be there at that time. On Friday evening Cyrene Com-i mandery No. 7 will hold monthly con clave, and if work will be had at that time the members will receive personal notice. EASTERN STAR. Op. Tuesday evening will occur the regular meeting o? Midlam Chapter, and a full attendance of its members is expected to be present. ATTENTION. YE S1IRTNERS. The “Shriners” of Wheeling will have a high time on Thursday even ing, November 12 next, if the follow ag be a correct translation of the exordi um epistle to the faithfi^; Noble Arabs of Osiris and Children of Arabia, lend ine your ears, and be attentive to my words of wisdom, and get a camel understanding. Many moons have got full and waned again since we last gathered arc and our shrine, benpath the summer’s sky, and here at our fertile oasis the camels have grown sleek and fat, yet are chafing from the long.delay of the car avan. and are fretfully chewing their cud in discontent. But the pilgrims whose journey has long been delayed are now Hocking towards our tents. Behold them as they now approach, with streaming locks and gaping mouths! What life they impart to our camels as they come seeking our shel tering abode, to refresh themselves from i ur bread basket and our leather bottles of salt water! Co forth, ye sons of light, and neck the prodigals, for the path Is forked and the road on which is riehey’s land has r.o guide posts: but the sands are not iced and if they skate they must go it alone on the bridge of their nose. Search now out all unregenerated that they may get a passport for the journey and pass into our commissary the required shekels to buy the fodder and sirh for the camels to keep their heads cool and the pilgrims their feet warm. LIBERTY. FRATERNITY, EQUAL-* ITY. At the dedication of Moore Lodgp. located at Bungalow India, the orator of the occasion uttered these beautiful sentiments, which are worthy of the perusal and consideration of of the brethren of West Virginia: “The days in which we live are time3 when Free Masons need to act on the defensive. Just as the craft had its or igin In the necessity of protecting the operative Mason from material dan ger. so we have to protect all that we hold dear and that is now being assail ed as never before. There are those who deny the inspiration, the authen ticity, the truth of Cod's word. The Freemason reards it as the great light of the fraternify. and stands or falls by it. The llturature of the day teems with impurity and license. The Free mason is pledged to regard chastity, both in man and woman, as a sacred thing. Even in the days of David there were those who said, in their hearts, there was no God. But such were not Freemasons. Among Free masons there is no room for the in fidel or the atneist. me anarmisi the traitor. To the Freemason that glorious watchword. ‘Liberty, Frater nity, Equality,’ is a true and living character, interpreted in its highest, holiest sense. We are here to diffuse the eternal principles of brotherly love, relief and truth: to wish god speed to our brethren, and to ask the Almighty Father to strengthen them to meet their responsibilities and ap preciate their privileges.” Therefore, it is shown that Masons, in far-away India, recognize but one book as their guide and for their faith, and that book the Holy Bible, and ve. Masons of freedom and of a liberty loving land, know that without it thtre cannot be Freemasonry, for it is rec ognized by the craft everywhere as the I gift of God to man. not to be hidden away for a special source of happiness and heroism, or closeted with sick ness and infirmity, or. in very many cases, to be read and interpreted by the clergy but to be used daily as a guide to wisdom, for perusal and practice. Manv other good books invite re spect but the Holy Bible demands al legiance Masonry fosters the study of' the Scriptures, while her antagon discourage it. One of them prac tically incurs our Lord’s rebuke to those who were ignorant of the Scrip tures and will not trust thorn in the hands of the people, and has said to them the circulation of the Scriptures will do them more harm than good. Thi< c’ass won. in some sections of opr p.-id a decisive victory when it extin guished the great light in many of our nub’ic schools, which, if the fraternity of Mr sons had guarded the sacred in heritance. that omrpge would never have been accomplished, and of the r, 400,000 pupils in the public schools of our land to-day there would not be twentv-flve. if not fifty, per cent, of them growing up without any real knowledge of the Scriptures. But we hope to see in the near future such a protest against it bv the united one million of Freemasons of our country as shall compel the school boards to restore the Holy Bible to the altars of their nation, draped about with "Old Glory.” Only a short time ago the question of placing a( thousand copies of Bible readings in the public schools of one of the largest cities of Michigan was decided in the affirmative in the face of a protest from members owing al legiance to a foreign potentate, whom, from his dignified and important posi tion, we can classify him by the words of Solomon when he said, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.’’ I One learned so-called doctor of divin ity of the same city says: “He looked upon the Bible as a collection of Jew | ish fables. His children have not been taught to believe in God, or to pray, and he does not want them to receive religions instructions.’’ This apostle of atheism of the nineteenth century further says: “Teaching the Bible in the public schools savors of uniting church and State, a thing that is re pugnant to American theory of gov ernment.” Our readers will agree with us in this, if that foreign diplomat could use the public schools to unjte his church with our government he would not he howling about keeping the Bible out of the public schools. Where in the world exists a Christian nation that does not owe ali its means (S'? civilization to the diffusion of the truths of the sacred Scriptures among its people? And yet this same man we refer to who opposes the word of God in the public schools is indebted to his Creator and to the Bible for all bless ings of Christian civilization of our country which be enjoy3 to-day, In cluding the public schools. If for no other purpose than for the secular edu cation and instruction of his children. How blind' and unprincipled do we Hud men to he in our day, that they will set up themselves against the judgment and stubborn facts of the age! What would Germany he to-day without Christianity? Why, nothing more nor less than barbarians. His tory tells us that when Julius Caesar landed at Deal ho found the Britons a horde of half-clad savages, living in rude huts and clad in skins, sunk in Ignorance and degradation. What lifted Germany from barbarism and Briton from savagery to places among the foremost of nations of the earth? Not atheism, not infidelity, not sec tionalism. but Christianity—the Bible. Thus it can lie perceived that the Holy Bible, the great light to truth, is not only to be constantly displayed in the Masonic lodg“ room, but be found in the homes of the craft, in that of their neighbors, in their workshops, 1 in the public schools and places of ed ucation, as much ro as they are now found in all Christiain churches. If' all the varied people of our great land would become civilized, or, plainly speaking. Americanized, so that they would not be opposed to the Holy Bible or its teachings to the youth of our land in the public schools, then would they he truly known as citizens. KNIGHTS CF PYTHIAS. Black Prince Lodge-has had! more than the ushal amount of business on hand the past week, requiring two sessions, to get through with it. The Special meeting called for last Monday night was a success in every particular ex cept the one point—attendance. The large crowd that was expected was not there, but these who did respond to the call made tin for lack of numbers by enthusiasm, end the business for which the. meeting was held was trans acted in good order and short time. The regular meeting on Tuesday night was devoted to routine b tsiness, reports of various committees and so cial intercourse, the latter consuming most of the time, ns is usual at No. 19. Brother R. R Shubert was reported convalescent after a five weeks’ siege of typhoid fever. He expects to be able to take charge of his business (lur ing the coming week. Brother James Sellers, who, it will be remembered, had his foot badly scalded at the Riverside mill some time ago, is now able to walk short dis tances, and hopes to be able to tackle the “blanket” on next. Tuesday. On next Thursday there will be work in the first degree, and the members of Black Prince Lodge are respectful ly invited, not. specially requested, to be present. Tt has seemed rather odd to the regu lar attendants to have a whole month pass without any degree work, the month just closed being the first blank this year. Let us hope there will he a revival in Pythian matters. now that the cam paign excitement Is nearly over. I. O. O. F. Wildey Rebekkah Lode No. 2 will meet on next Wednesday evening, No vember 4th, and a good a tendance is expected, as this will he a very impor tant meeting to all, and members of the staff are expected to he present on this occasion, as there will he several candidates to be initiated. Members of sister lodges are always welcome; the latchstring is always hanging out for visitors. -tTJ TO BE MARRIED NOVEMBER, 11. Mr. Conrad II.

Scenes of Confusion and Exaspera tion at the Railway Stations Ne cessitated Extra Police Protec tion—The Smart Set ot the Me tropolis Interested in Countess Cowley's Divorce Case. (Copyrighted, 1S96, Associated Tress.) London, October 31.—The weather during the week settled to some de gree, though on Tuesday the first yel low fog of the season plunge clthe me tropolis into semi-darkness and made street traveling difficult ami danger ous. London is greatly incommoded by the cab strike. The drivei 3 have start ed a system of boycotting the railroad stations, which has produced scenes of confusion and exasperation at the dif fered depots, where huge piles of bag gage are set down by the roadway and crowds of indignant male ami female Hrltous. hampered by bags, traveling rugs and packages, are fretting and fueling while pushing about in a moie or less helpless condition, engaging messengers, porters or unybodv ut hand to help them out of their difficulties. In fact, tiie muddle and the trouble are so great that the officials of the rail roads have been compelled to apply for extra police protection. The so-called “smart set” is taking considerable interest, in the suit tor divorce brought by Countess Cowley against the earl, hor husband, on the ground of desertioln and adultery. The co-respondent In (ho case is a Mrs. Charington. The affair rerolls that the i earl while Viscount Dangan was forced to heavily compensate Phyllis Brough ton, the well-known actresa, for breach of promise. The Dowager Countess Cowley, i i August, a year ago. was sued bv Mrs. Jacoby, sister-in-lav/ of James A. Jacoby, M. P , for slander in charging the plaintiff with writing anonymous and objectionable letters affecting the character of numerous t persons in high society. The case was ! finally settled by both parties sw-'orig (hoy did not write the letters and did i not know who did write them. The i divorce ease has been postponed until next session. Now that tho fetes in honor of the ! marriage of the Crown Prinee of Italy i to the Princess Helene, of Montenegro. ! are over,, the extraordinary behavior | of the Roman clergy connected with the ceremony is widely criticised. The I clergy are paid by the State, yet it ap ; pears that when King Humbert and i Queen Margaret entered the church of i Santa Marie de Gle Anglia, where the ceremony was performed, they found that no preparations for their reception had been made and they had to sit in the body of the church. Mgr. Piszilli, who officiated, upon being ask*“d to explain, said that the details were ar raigned by the Pope, “who considered their majesties to he no part of the ceremonial.” It is added that the as tonishment of the king and queen of Italy and the anger of the court was in creased ten fold when the usual prayer • for the royal house was omitted and it is said a long time will elapse before the commotion caused by so public an insult in the presence of foreigners subsides. Jeanne Nuoia, the American singer, by (he desire of tho Infanta Eulalia, was engaged for the winter season at the Madrid Opera house, but tho con tract, she has been notified, is cancelled owing to the irritation in Spain against the United States for the alleged sup port given to the insurgents in Cuba. The director of tho Opera house said: “if an American sang under the pat ronage of tVie court, it would lead to a demonstration against the royal fam ily.” CLARKSBURG. Clarksburg, W. Va.. October 3!.—Not withstanding the political campaign, Clarksburg Ipods on in her usual and accustomed way, perhaps in the cer tainty of the election of Bryan and' an Increased circulation of monc.v, engag ing in this and that enierprise. Labor here has steady employment, and every Saturday night receives its pay, and 10 a greater extent than elsewhere. Is con tent and happy. The mines are run ning and’ the on put of coal is large for ithis season. The people are learning that it is what they save that helps them in after life, or on a rainy day, and. hun dreds are taking advantage of the op portunities offered to lay up their week ly savings by depositing them in the Home BtiiU. rs Building and Loan As sociation. a new project put on foot by such men as John Basse!, Dr. Morgan and Dr. Howell. Mr. R. T. Lowndes is building a new bank, into which the savines bank will be removed, when completed, another enterprise worthy of ironi mend at ion. Th^ centre of the old town is moving west ware', which is only a repetition of history. The new Bal timore and Ohio railroad depot will he erected on the Goff farm, just north of Clarksburg, and will be approaAed by an extension of Fourth street, and by bridging Elk creek, throwing Traders’ and other hotelh, and the business bloc/ks in close proximity to the d«pot. Just west of this the new town of North view has been located, an enterprise un dertaken by G. S. Howell, of Maryland, H. It. Henderson, of Maryland', and C. S. Sands, C. R. Pride, M. M. Thompson and E W. Williams, of this city. One hundred and thirty lots have already been sold and located. There is a school thouse in ’he immediate vicinity, and talk now of erecting a Methodist Church. The company also have very favorable propositions from several manufactur ers for the location of permanent in dustries. In the spring a large number of houses will be erected, which will af ford labor for a large number of me chanics. In eight or ten days Hart Bros, will complete the repairs of ?ae water plant, which will be one of the best in the Spate. Now let tho Council sub mit to tho vote of the people a subscrip tion for the paving with brick the streets of the town, giving as good roads land good pavements, and Clarksburg will be satisfied for a while at least. The funeral of Mrs. Sophia S. Hewes, the widow of the late Col. Hewes, took place yesterday from her residence in this citv. The Rev. Forrest, of the Epis copal. and the R^v. White, of the First Presbyterian churches, officiated. Her remains were interred at rbe Odd Fel lows’ cemetery. She was one of the oldest an * most respected citizens of this county. The funeral was one of the largest ever in Clarksburg. She dis posed of her property by will, giving most of it to her daughter. Miss Rossie Hewes, who has cared for her for many years. . _. . . The Central Presbyterian Church is bemg repainted*, and is now putting on auite a different appearance. Rev. G«o. A. Doyle is to be congratulated on this enterprise. • T!m i Methodists contemplate the building of a church at Northvlew. The people out here will be glad when election day is over, and especially so if Bryan is eleete . THE MASSACHUSETTS “REFEREN DUM.” lly Allfe Stone UUckwol), of Bouton During my visit to England this sum mer, I was asked to give at a suffrage convention, on account of tho so-called • “referendum" In Massachusetts. As It has been widely misrepresented In this country as well as In England, u brief statement of the facts wtth figures front afhclal returns, may be of use. In the spring of 1889, our Legislatures passed a bill inviting men and women to vote at the State election In November oo the question, "Is it expedient to extend ! municipal suffrage to women?" This so i called "referendum” was to have no le j gal validity and was to give the woman . nothing, if the vote went in their favor. A Man Suffrage Association" was form ed. with Mr. Francis C. Lowell, as chair man. and Mr. Charles R. Saunders, as sec retary; and a hundred prominent men, in cluding President Elliott, of Harvard, signed an appeal against equal suffrage. A society of women. "The Massachusetts 1 Association Opposed to the Extension of I Suffrage to Women,” was also ir. thdkfleld. j Both these societies put forth great of- , ^orts and spent money freely. The Man j Suffrage Association has refused to file a ! sworn statement of its campaign receipts ; and expenditures, as the law requires; but according to the unsworn statement pub lished by Its treasurer, It spent $.1,578. The j Woman Suffrage Campaign Committee spent $1,379. When the returns were In, It was found that lhe men had vot**d ugalnst women suffrage a little more than two to one, while the women had voted for It twenty five to one. The exact figures of the wo men's vote were, yes, 22,201; noes, S'd. Newspapers opposed to suffrage ac knowledged that not one woman of had i character registered or voted. The men’s vote did not differ greatly from the vote In most of the other States, where suffrage has been defeated. There was nothing especially significant about it, except that in Boston the affirmative vote was largest in tho good wards and smallest in the slums. But the women's ( vote was really curious and Instructive. It was the first tins- an offlctaJ vote of women had been taken on the question. According to the women’s vote, every county, and every Congressional, Senator ial and Representative district in Massa chusetts went In favor of suffrage by at least ten to one. Thus in Norfolk county, thq women's vote stood ye«, 1,171; noes, I4: in Essex county, yes.* 1,493; noes, 2N tt: Worcester county, yes. 2,620; noes 151; In Middlesex county, yes 3.19S; no<-s 230; in Suffojk county. >•■ i, T.200, Noes, 293.
