MASONRY. On last Monday evening occurred the regular communication of Ohio Lodge No. 1. at which time there was a good attendance of brethren. The first bus iness in order was the installation of officers, and in the absence of the Wor shipful Master. Past Master James Mc Cahon was called to preside in the East, and who installed Worshipful Master-elect. George Hatch, who then took the chair and installed all the oth er officers except the Stewards, who were not present, but who will be there for that purpose at the next meeting. The officers for the ensuing year are: George Hatch. W. M.: F. T. Bourne. S. W.: J. W. Milligan. J. W.; Hugh Sterl ing. Treasurer: Joseph Hall, Secretary: Edear Charnock, S. D.; W. J. Hamil ton. J. P.; John Beckett and Alfred Lewis, Stewards: Wm, H. Travis. A. H. Forgey and J. H. Dehmel. Trustees; T. W. Bliss. Tyler. At the close of the in stallation. two candidates were found in waiting, on whom were conferred the F. C. Degree. Bro. Hatch presiding in the East, and Past Master Dehmel giv ing the carpet lecture, every part of the work being done in an excellent manner by those brethren. On Tuesday evening, Bates Lodge No. 33 met in monthly communication, and had a full attendance of its mem bers and visitors present. Work was had on two candidates in the Entered Apprentice Degree; in conferring the same, Worshipful Master Peabody call ed to his assistance, ip the East, Bros. Batelle and Baird, Senior and Junior Wardens, and the ability, skill and knowledge exhibited by th£se brethren, of the work, upon that occa sion. shows that Brother Peabody had zealous students, and who will he fully proficient when the brethren of the lodge shall elect them to preside over their work and deliberations. On Wednesday evening, the “Consist ory of West Virginia” held its annual meeting, and the following officers were elected and appointed for the ensuing year: Grand Master of Kadosh, John W. Morris; Grand Prior of Kadosh. J. C. Riheldaffer: Grand Preceptor of Ka dosh. H. B. Baguley; Grand Chancellor of Kadosh. S. Waterhouse, Jr.; Grand Master of State. J. M. Fawcett; Grand Hospitale of State. Joseph Hall; Grand Registe^er of State, Thus. M. Darrah; Grand Treasurer of State. Wm. A. Wil son; Grand Master of Ceremonies, Wm. H. Hose; Grand Expert of .Ceremonies, F. M. Young; Grand Assistant Expert of Ceremonies, C. 3. Shaffer; Grand Primate of Ceremonies, R. C. Darrah; Grand Master of the Guard, Julius Hearne; Grand Steward. L. W. Blaney; Grand Steward. T. W. Bliss. All of the aforesaid officers were in tailed in their respective stations in accordance with the ritual. On Tuesday evening. Nelson Lodge No. 30, held its stated meeting, and with a very full turn-out of members pres ent. Much business of interest to the lodge was transacted, but no degrees were conferred on this occasion. At noon, on Friday, quite a large gathering of the members of Cyrene Coramandery No. 7. and some visitors, assembled at the Masonic Temple to respond to the toasts offered by the Grand Master of Knights Templars, and the Grand Commander of W> st Virginia. Promptly at the hour. Grand Commander John C. Riheldaffer, who had ! '>en requested to preside, offered the toast. “To Our Most Eminent Grard Master, W. La Rue Thomas. His faith fid Knights send greetings on this holy Christmastide—On earth, peace and good will toward man.” Sir Past Com mander Alfred Pauli responded “To All the llrotherhood of the Faith;” may the peace of God. which passeth all un derstanding. keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Then the following Sir Knights were called upon to respond to the following toasts: Grand Lodge of W^st Virginia. Joseph Hall: Grand Chapter and Grand Com mandery, .1. A. Miller; Grand Encamp ment, Hugh Sterling: Wheeling Com mander}' No. 1, John A. Zorn; Cyrene Comnmndery No. 7. Edward C. Schoen; to the llrotherhood of the Order, by a Knight from Indianapolis. All of the Sir Knights, with one exception, had not previous notice, hence the respon ses may not have been as lengthy as would have been possible otherwise, but they were enjoyed by all. The last toast was to the Templar dead, and each Knight present gave a silent response to it., from the innermost, recesses of his soul. Then the meeting of the Knights Templars of Wheeling, in their Christ mas observance, was brought to a close. The meetings for the coming week well be: On Monday, regular monthly conclave of Wheeling Commander}' No. 1. of which personal notice has been sent to the Sir Knights. On Wednesday evening. McDaniel Lodge of Perfection will meet and work will be had from Fourth to Ninth De grees inclusive, and members are re quested to be prompt to assist in the j work. On Friday evening occurs the month ly conclave of Cyrene Commandery No. 7. If it meets and does work at that time the members will receive personal notice. AMONG THE SAINTS. The Masons borrowing from and imi tating the services of the church, says the “American Tyler,” have also their paints as well as their days of festivity and celebration. The constitution of the Grand Lodge of Scotland declares that that body 'practices and recognizes no degrees of Masonry except those of Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason, denominated St. John’s Mason ry.” The twenty-third day of April is St. George’s day. The constitution of the Grand Lodge of England declares that “there shall he a Masonic festival refreshments.” It is the occasion of the “Great Feast.” This change from St. John the Baptist day was made in 1727. i The :10th of November. St. Andrews Day. was adopted by the Grand Lodg of Scotland, as the day of annual com munication. in 1737. In Ireland the festival kept are those of the two saints John, as in the case in this country. The chief festival of the Operative Ma sons of the Middle Ages where those of St. John the Baptist, on the 24th of June, and the Four Crowned Martyrs, on the 4th of November. The latter were, however, discarded by the Spec ulative Masons, and St. John the Evan gelist. December 27. substituted. Sir Isaac Newton (on the Book of Daniel) says that “the brethren were delighted with the festival of their gods, and unwilling to part with those delights, and therefore Gregory Thau matuegus, who died in 265, and was Bishop of Neoeaesarea, to facilitate their conversion, instituted annual fes tivals to the saints and martyrs. Hence It came to pass that, for exploding of festivals of heathens, the principal fes tivals of the Christians succeeded in their room—as the keeping of Christ mas with Joy, and feasting, and play ing, and sports, in the room of Bacchin alia and Saturnalia; the celebrating of May Day with flowers, in the room of the Floralia, and the keeping of the festivals to the Virgin Mary; John the Baptist, and divers of the apostlei\ in the room of the solemnities at the \n trance of the sun into the signs on the Zodiac, in the old Julian calendar.” At one time St John the Baptist waa exclusively the patron saint of Mason ry, the name of St. John the Evangjdist having been introduced subsequent to the Sixteenth century, and his festival celebrated on the 27th of December. It believed by many Masonic writers, that of a hisorical character, proof of which Masonry is rather of a symbolic than of a historical character p.roof of which conclusion has been previously given, we think, by it not being found in its ritual in the earlier periods of its his tory. In one of the old ceremonies of the last century, reference is therein made to the two Saints John in the dedication services of a lodge, in these words: “Why were lodges dedicated to St. John the Baptist? Because he was the forerunner of our Savior, and by preaching repentance and humilia tion, drew the first parallel of the gos pel. Had St. John the Baptist any equal? He had, St. John the Evangel ist. Why is he said to be equal to the Baptist? Because he finished by his learning what the other began by his zeal and thus drew a second line par allel to the former; ever since which time Freemason’s lodges, in all Chris tian countries, have been dedicated to one or the other, or both, of those wor thy and worshipful men.” The myste rious nature of the Apocalypse, the mode of instruction adopted by St. John the Evangelist to that practiced by the Fraternity, made him worthy the posi tion he occupies in our order. No Ma son can venture much on the tutelary care of sanits that have passed to that “bourne from whence no traveler re turns.” and, therefore, wo must turn our thoughts to the constant admoni tion of this patron of Masonry in his epistles, to the v ’ i:i I o h to become a saint on eartl ;o ?!.■ ultivation of brotherly love, :'d to tb relation of things to come, if .■Job was a de fender of our prin ipl .v I he is so recognized by < .r i ruby to-day, then certainly it : mi;, natural that we study his life ami wri’ . . '<> the dis covery of what i ur ; : i;>b s were in his day or what they re when our brethren chose him worthy to be a pat ron of true holiness. He was the dis ciple whom Jesus loved. It was he who presented to the world the won derful gospel of love opening with “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that hath been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.” As his words come rolling down the centuries and reach our ears, what comfort they bring to our souls to-day. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that who soever believeth in him should not per ish but have eternal life.” Talk about the fatherhood of God, and the brother hood of man, and then be satisfied with the husks of the prodigal! Away with thp spirit that led Judas to betray his master to death, and the builders to re ject and oast among the rubbish the chief corner-stone. On that day that Christ said to the women of Samaria: "The hour cometh when ye shall neith er in the mountain nor yet at Jerusa lem worship the Father, but when true worshipers shall worship him in spirit ard in truth." was founded the true re ligion of humanity—the eternal and universal religion of Freemasonry—ir respective of nationalities, doctrines and dogmas. The love of God as the type of all that is perfect, love for fel low men. and charity for all—this sums up the doctrine of Freemasonry. Be ye. therefore, perfect, as my Father which is in heaven is perfe. t. and love thy neighbor as thyself.” On these commandments, are we not told, hang the law and the prophets? Shame, then, upon that cowardice in Masonry that is ashamed or abashed to deal justly with the truth as is given to the world by its God-given patron saint, John the Evangelist. Listen to his words as he speaks to the true “Sons of Light." Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called the children of God, and such we are. Trust God, then, my brethren. Trust Him as you did when you started on that dark and perilous journey. You remember it?
