Early American Jewry and Freemasonry The Masonic, fraternity bus l»eeii part of Amcrictkij life almost from the (lays when this great institution took its historic rise. Shortly* aftfr the four city lodges of London united In 1717. to form thu first Masonic grand lodge. traus-Atliiutic offshoots? thereof were set up hero in tin* English col onies tif % America. Whatever may hate been the practice Of Masons in times past, from 1717 on. when the institution was universalized, admis sion to its mysteries was open to ovary freeman of good repute. Thus from the first the .lews resident in the future United States became ineiuliers of the Masonic fraternity, and as such, were enabled to participate intimately in- the general concerns of their neigh bors of all creeds and stations. It is not too much to say that the adhesion of a number of Jews to freemasonry in America made possible the close re lations subsisting between them and their felloWcitlzens of other faiths and bore an important Influence on tlieir standing In tin* general community, as well liefoVe as immediately after tie' conclusion of tin* Revolutionary war. We need not linger long over the tra dition that still persists, to tile effect that Jews introduced Masonry, at least s i fur as the three symbolic, degrees went, into Americanat Newport. Rhode Island, In 3«tss. This dale .long pre ! coed the historic constitution of 1717. I above referred to. ami no conletnpor i ary document in support of the claim : s extant. That a small hand of New port JCws should in this remote cor ner of the world at so eufly a period, have conferred the “degrees of Mas onry” on one of their number after '-■ynagog on a Sabbath may be a plead ing tradition: but it baffles analysis and. in fact, it cannot stand tin Im paired under the searching light of scientific inquiry. The matter is only suggested here, rather than elaborated as a part of our subject, and. we add. that the claim that the Jews introduc } cd the symbolic degrees of Freema sonry into America cannot well ho sub stantiated. As we shall set*, they bore a great part in introducing here the i higher or so-called Scottish Rite de crees. Tin* Connection between the Jews and Masonry is again evidenced l>y an incident which clusters about the first settlement, of Georgia as an English colony. Tin* first Jews who repaired 1 hither from London had experienced' no little difficulty In securing admit tance to the colony, and it is thought (hat one of them, who joined the Ma sonic lodge in London, of which t*ov ernor Oglethorpe was a member, ef fected their entrance on the delights «<f Georgia thrp (ids u .ssociufft.uk Moreover, there is an extant Masonic record from the year 1731. which des cribes the admission of a Jew to the city lodge in London to which Ogle thorpe belonged. A man of almost sim ilar name was among the first 'Jewish settlers of Georgia. Tints there if** | more than n mere coincidence in this ! circumstance. Rut the connection of Jews with i Freemasonry became even more ap parent as wo reach later periods in the history of the American "colonies. This connection, we may add. clusters about the Scottish Rite division of the fraternity. Here the names of Steph on Morin anrl Henry Andrew Franc- Ken claim recognition. Roth of them are reputed Id have possessed Jewish affiliations; their Jewish identity is. however, a matter of some doubt. Re this'as it may. Morin was settled over the North American and West Indian colonies as head of the Scottish Rite branch of Masonry, and lie deputised consistories, as they wore called, in various parts of his jurisdiction, lie: in turn confided the task thus en- ; trusted to him to a number of denu- i of his own. one of whom. Moses Michael Hays, then of NVw York and subsequently of Roston. vis an un-! doubted Jew. Just as Francken is ne-j Knowledge*! •«» hu'v l*eru the rounder! TEE DENVER JEWISH NEWS of the Alauy Lodge of Perfection, u division of the Scottish Kite embrac ing the fourth to the fourteenth de gree, inclusive, so Hays acted in a similar capacity in the case of the fa mous Philadelphia Lodge of Perfec tion. It is unnecessary to discuss at. length Hays’ work in Masonry, be cause we reserve this topic for a sub sequent consideration of the life of this American Jewish worthy. Of the Philadelphia Lodge of Perfection we need only say that that at its consti tution practically all its officers and Oie preponderant majority of its mem bers were Jews, as to whose identity as such, there is nqt the slightest pos sibility of doubt. In course of time the Jewish complexion, as it were, of tills lodge changed. Hut this has no Pouring on the matters now being treated. Jews bore an interesting part in shaping the relations of Pennsylvania j Masonry to English Masonry In that Solomon Bush, of Philadelphia, a rev olutionary -soldier, who proceeding to England in 187(1. was entrusted by the grand lodge of Pennsylvania with the duty of advising the parent body in London of the fact that the former had formally thrown off its depend ence on the latter ns an incident of the successful war of the Americans for their independence <»f fSreat Brit ain. The mother grand lodge which had originally chartered Pennsylvania as a provincial grand lodge was the grand lodge the ancients, as it was called. In the intervening years anoth er grand lodge had arisen in London, which was known ns the grand lodge of the moderns. Thru some innd \ertoucc Bush notified tin* moderns in stead of the ancients of tin* alteration ii> Pennsylvania's Masonic relations. For a long time the leaders of tin craft in Philadelphia doubtless won tiered why no word came to them from London with reference their inde pendent action. It came at last, long after Bush lmd absolved himself of the trust reposed in him. and was in the nature of a message of congrat ulation on the stop thus taken. Another Masonic incid—..t of these early days in which Jews of America participated may he related in tills place. Moses Seixas was a respected citizen of Newport, in Rhode Island, a pillar of the local synagog and ac tive in tin* general life of tlic place. In the lieginuiug of tlfe nineties of the eighteenth century, before Rhode Is land had become a part of the Tinted States by formally ratifying its new Constitution, as well as after, he was ; a mass, or president, of the synagog. At the same time In* was worshipful master of King David's Lodge, the local Mu.sonic ipiM-Ty: - nnd cashier of the Bank of Rhode Island. King David’s Lodge had originally been established at New York, with Moses Michael Hays .1 : one of Its members, hut had been transplanted to Newport during rev olutionary times. In virtue >f tin* fact that Seixas was tin* Worshipful master of this important bulge', he had been chosen as the grand master of the then newly constituted grand lodge of Masons of Rimde Island a post lie occupied with credit to himself and satisfaction to the fraternity down 1<• hi- death in 1800. Ilis tombstone in the celebrated Jewish cemetery at New port records this outstanding fact of ids honored Masonic career. Now, after Rhode Island had form ally ratified the Constitution of Die Cnited States, President George Wash ington made a . visit to that section of tiie country. As Is well known, the Jewish congregation of Newport shared in Washington's triumphal progress i.v presenting to him a formal address >f congratulation which was signed by .Moses Seixas ps its president or warden. A similar address was pre sented to the first president, a mem ber of the. Masonic fraternity and past master of tin* lodge at Alexandria., in \ irginia. by his brethren of King David’s Lodge at Newport. This again was signed by Moses Seixas as the muster of this lodge. It is believed by reputable Masonic liistoriaus that the two addresses were presented together to Washington in the hall of the New port synagog: regrettably, there is no confirmation of tills suggestion, inter esting as it is, from historical sources at our disposal. Later incidents evidencing tin* im portance of the connection between American Jews and the fraternity "i .Masons exist without number, but they are neither so significant nor so char acteristic as th«- few early ones w< have just been considering. In mod ern times many Jews in the Tnited Mates have been and are members of wiriotts Masonic Lodges in their dif ferent communities, a fact, as has been pointed out. which has some bearing on their standing in the general com munity.. Some have even risen In tie* dignity of the grand mastership of the Masonic grand lodge of their own slate. The names of Tlenr/ M. Phillips, in Pennsylvania, toward tin* middle of the nineteenth century, and of Abra ham Jonas. In both Kentucky and D linois at a slightly earlier time, oe cnr to illustrate this statement.

AN OLD JEWISH LEGEND FROM AVIGNON. Several centuries liuve already pass ed since there existed a large Jewish Congregation at Avignon, the whilom residence of Popes. The Jews were huddled together in narrow, dirty quarters on the shores of tin* It hone and they risked their lives when they emerged from them. On a beautiful autumn’s afternoon a poor Jewish woman, oh whose wrink led facial lines wore written the grief and trouble that aged her premature v. ventured outside of the ghetto ie enjoy the benefit of the sun's warm ra.vs. because, the high walls and nar row streets of the ghetto did not let the sun’s .hen ms dispense to the pitiable inhabitants the Messing of heat. Hesitatingly and timidly did the old woman move' along, because she lmd to expect every moment to he reeognir « d by the inimienlly disposed inhabit ants and to be tormented as a Jewess, but slit* reached the square of the Papal residence without being molest ed. She sat down upon one of the num erous benches hid between bosquets, eyeing wistfully the life and hustle of the crowds of people and looking with admiration at the well-dressed digni taries of the Church entering and leaving the palace. She pictured her self the contrast between those princes of the Church who rode in nitigniflbon; conches, in their gold and silver elu te oidored vestments, beaming with health and vigor, nml their unhappy coreligionists who rfte in the morning from their poor couches sorrow-laden and care-worn and retire at night with uriof and pain at tin* terrible fate that weighed them down, which, how ever. they accepted wiih humility a ; coming by the dispen-ntion of an all wise Hod. ft must lie so." she said to herself. Cod is gracious and just. lie lifts uiven ms such numerous proofs of Ilis love and mercy and apparently lms withdrawn Ilis hand front us. hilt Mb ro ly has not abandoned us entirely. "Put ob ! our sufferings arc very, very great, when will lie at las! take pity on us. ’and Suddenly her. thoughts were inter j nipted by un exclamation which made l hot* whole body Khalil* mlil tremble: j A Jewess, a Jewess!" It echoed all ! around her. Those* who raised that cry were u I lot of choir boys or the l*upal chapel, i ,tvho lileil their ,\y»v to. divine Service jammings and evefttngs nurt who hover i missed their opportunity to fully a trick on those \Vho were least able to defend themselves. Today they had selected the Jewess as their butt: they had spied lier be hind tile bouquets and they were re ' erberant. in tlicir joy, occause such : port did not offer every day. It was an extraordinary opportunity to laugh amp have fun and perpetrate mischief. *1 herofore. without mmji ado. they sur rounded the poor woman, teased her and made sport of her in hoys’ fash ion. The poor old creature .believing that she was in serious peril, summoned all her strength and. ran as fast as site could to escape her enemies. She jumped up and run as fast as 'her legs would perisjt. her toward her home, at least she thought she was taking that direction, but. in her ex citement she took the opposite direc tion, followed by tin* noisy urchins who had been joined by a lot of street a rubs, throwing stones at her and call ing the attention of tin* people passing by keeping up the cry, “A Jewess, a Of course, the way to the ghetto * grew much longer, but the fear she* was in winged her steps: gradually j she gained on her pursuers and the 1 < iy was growing fainter by the dis lance increasing between her and her I enemies 0 . She suddenly fell a sting- ( I mg pain in her back, which deprived J her of all power to move further, and after making a vain effort to run further she dropped to flic* ground. She considered herself already lost and uttered piercing cries of lament— when a young man, with a pale face and mild eyes, approached her and inquired for the cause of her distress. He did not go away after restoring her courage, but tried to find Mu* cause cf the sudden collapse of the poor woman and of the stinging pain with which she was attacked. His hand disappeared In I lie* rags of the old wo loan and when lie drew it forth tin grasped one of those disgusting ki t seels wbrh. in spite of all \j recant ions, i propagate in .those damp, badly ven- I Minted, squalid hovels, flu* plagtic of | the inhabitants. The woman uttered a cry of Joy and relief when the pain stopped ns sud -1 doiily as it had come, and in a -, 'rt | of eestney she biassed her benefactor ,*<nd protector, and prophesied to him that Moil in heaven would reward lllm s<*iuc day with plaeing upon ids head I the T’npnl tiara. Then she hurriedly went home to the ghetto and the adventure was sunn i forgotten. Years haul passed by when oliu day .11 extraordinary excitement kept the population of the ghetto astir. The visit of ai high dignitary of the Church haul been announced, and, of course, nl* jMissive preparations were made to Jiuußive-iiiiu' with becoming honors. % I Hit to the sul'pfise of nil, the richly caparisoned cqttfpftge. instead of talk ing the road toward the customary ► meet tuft-house of tho congregation, were directed town I'd one of the most dilapidated. tumble-downs. and the Pope himself left the carriage and stepped into the dwelling which re semDied a stable more than a dwell ing place for hitman beings. Followed by at lackey, the lu»ly fath er ascended the Stairs atnl enteml n room in the garret which was exposed to Wind and Weather. Finding him self face to face with am old woman who tenanted the apartment, he in quired with soft voice: “Do you re member. brave mother, at young man who many years ago protected you against at crowd of wild hoys and wh" relieved you of at stinging insert?” “Certainly. T do.” replied the aged woman, “of course 1 reidomliOr il: oli! he was so kind.” "And do you remember the proph ecy which yam made then?” "lie merited.” continued the wont j.n quite confused, "the iiigltest re ward. and I presaged that ho would f-ne day ascend the Papal Mirone.” "Well, then.” resit mod tin* holy fat tiler,” your prophecy lms hen ful filled; it is I lie Pope you art* speaking to. and I am the young man who 'help ed and assisted von ! f’onfldo 1 to_ nir* nmV. without fear and faN,*. pride, ycitr highest wish, and I swear it shall he fulfilled if It Is within limuah pow er.” “Certainly, do I recognize you.” re sumed the old lady, her eyes swim ming in tears: “hut am old. and Hitve probably hut a few days of life left nr.d they will carry me to the place from Which then* is no return. How ever. if it is your sincere desire t<> confer a benefit upon me. if it is your sincere desire tluit. l shall die In peace, then grant permission to my unhappy eo-religionists to leave those miser able quarters, these lanes in which they choke, because air and light can iot enter, and give thonr leave t«» ex change them for better, more tnohey olid more airy habitations.” “Your wish slmll he fulfilled.'* re plied the Pope, and lie loTt the room with tearful eyes. Immediately after the rein On to his palace. In* issued nn order which granted permission to the -lews of Avignon to leave ftteir unheal thy llhone-quarters, and assigned to them otic of the most salubrious localities <>f the city as their quarter. They lived there until the F'vm-h revolution broke out. and the name “.lerusnletn Place” Is r’hnthined to this day.—Jewish Voice.
