ARIZONA’S LEADING NEWSPAPER ißlfi BURLY BRUTE CHARGED WITH ASSAULT ION HELPLESS WOMAN I, (Special to the Tribune) CINCINNATI, O, June 3—Two , | weeks ago from the West find of this city, DMhi, the news was flashed over the world that another Negro outrage had taken place. A white woman called up her husband who worked out at night and told him that a big, burly Negro had caught her after her father left for breakfast, ! over powered her. and robbed the house. That he had evidently been in hiding there all night. The police got busy at once. After an extended investigation the officers got suspic ious and on cross-examination the woman broke down, and said that her statement was untrue. That she sim ply told the story as a joke on her husband. It was funny for her, possibly, but it would not have been funny for any Negro answering the description she gave. For lie might have been lynched. She would have stuck to her story and the reputation of our people would have been make blacker. God only knows how many poor Negroes have suffered death and tor i tqre because of lies. The following clipping from daily papers is interesting: Robbery Told as Joke Mrs. Marie Martliens, 30, of 651 Delhi Ave.. who reported to police she was choked and robbed by a Negro in her home Saturday, told police Monday, they charge, she made up the story as a joke on her husband.

The past three weeks the readers j, of the Tribune have been giving some | attention to articles prepared by three | members of Golden Billow lodge lo- i cated at Globe, Arizona. These three : writers, I am sure, did not mean to ; convey the idea such as the readers 1 ' glean from the article. After all it ; was very kind in these brethren to j try their ability in helping to give , the public something full of research. ! I am sure they appreciated the fact, j however, that when eight lodges of Master Masons assembled in Phoenix on the 3rd of May, 1920, they did not meet for the purpose of stirring up strife and contention in any way, but i rather to discuss in the most friendly and brotherly way, the advisability of organizing a grand lodge. A definite ! conclusion was fully reached when j I representatives of these eight lodges | bail thoroughly gone over the work ! for the best good of the craft through- I out the state. The circumstances confronting i Negro Masonry in Arizona simply i showed to delay the work of or | ganzing" a grand lodge would encour age the scheme of clandestine made Masons. The representatives men tioned above were affiliated with three j different Masonic jurisdictions, name- 1 i ly, Colorado, Missouri and Texas. When a vote was taken on the ques- Ition of organizing »a grand lodge, this ; question was decided by a unanimous • vote. Now that the most worshipful I sovereign grand lodge of Arizona and 1 jurisdiction has been definitely, posi | tively and uncompromisingly organ- ! j ized and dedicated, be it known that | the different jurisdictions which have • hitherto operated within the confines i of Arizona cannot and will not offer | further protection to the subordinate ' lodges within this state. It Is a bit of absurdity upon the- part of our brethren to think tltat they are yet ; standing loyal to the Texas jurisdic | tion. This declaration made by some of | our brethren, of course, is due to the fact that they have not taken the time ;to consult Mackey’s Jurisprudence | I seventh edition. If just a little time I j was spent in becoming acquainted with j the universal laws and land-marks of Free Masonry regarding jurisdictions operating in open territory and the ! law governing the power of said jur j isdictions after a grand lodge organ ization shall have been perfected, I am sure this would eliminate all cross firing. My attention was called just a few ; days ago by the Most Worshipful G. W. Caldwell to the fact that perfect harmony among the brethren of all of our lodges is very essential. We realize, however, that those who have been writing do not mean to be in subordinate. I am personally ac quainted with the brethren in question, and know them to be staunch Chris tian gentlemen.
