Kiilehts TVmplnr
( tVmllimcd frwn Inst tiumlay , )
They wcro si monod to the great councils
of the church I rodorlclc IL's persecution
of their order was ono of the main causes of
his excommunication lnl'i.19 , and his last will
enjoined a restoration of their estates Tholr
property was scattered over every country of
Chrlstondom , from Denmark to Spain , from
Ireland to Cyprus Before the middle of the
thirteenth century Matthew Purls reckoned
thqlr manors at 11,000. Soma fifty years carl
lor their income from Armenia olono was
equal to $44,000. Both in Paris and London
their houses were used as strongholds tor the
royal troasur 'ju/Jd / kings looked to them for
loans when lo , jflnunclal straights , In the
Spanish poulnsula they occupied a peculiar
position , aud more than ono icing of Aragon
Is said to have"bceu brought up unuor their
discipline ' ,
Such \verortho power and wealth of the
Templars when PhiJIp IV , of Franco accused
them of heresy nnd worse offenses , had them
arrested in VM nnd forced thorn to confess
by tortures of 'tljo most excruciating kinds
Five years liitfcr the order was suppressed
by decree of tn6'couucll of Vienna and Its
goods transferred to the hospital of St John ,
The vi dor catifisted ot knights chaplains
and men-nt-urms. The knights were bound
for lite or for u fixed pciiod nnd woie the
only members entitled to wear the white
mantle "IhoyMrro obliged touttend relig
ious services dailji ahoy were allowed but
two meals u dsjtund moat but thrice a week ,
Every brother owed the most absolute obo-
dlencu to the master of the order and was to
go wherever his superior bade him without
delay "as if commanded by God " Thej
were to dress iu woolen goods , wear their
hair short , and u rough beard became one of
the distinguishing marks of the order
They were controlled by the strictest dis
cipline , which prescribed the form of ovcrr
act of their life , their clothing , and associ
ates Thu brethren ot the Tomnlo wore ex
horted to shun the kuu ot every woman ,
whether maid or wldow ' mother , aunt or sls- ;
tor , The general spirit of the Toniplar stat
utes romaiuod unaltered to the end At tbp
time of its suppression It was calculated to
number 15.0000 members
PhiliD IV of Franco had secured the elec
tion of Clement V. as pone by his gold and
lulluonce , and this pone lent hlmsoTf to hi
purposes In 1300 the popa summoned the
grand master from Cyprus to Frunco-Janio
do Molul obeyed the call , aud hearing of the
charges against his order domanacd a
prompt examination Clement was urged on
by Philip , who was determined on the dc
struction of the Templars
Finally Philip issued an order for the ar
rest of all the Templars in Franco , aud do
Molal wus Buizcd , with sixty of his brethren ,
in Paris Tne inquisitors began their work
at once , nnd inhuman tortures forced the
most horrible avowals from tLs lips of many
In Paris alone thirty-six Templars died of
torture Of 140 Templars examined at Pans ,
the oxporloaco of seine of whom extended
over nearly half a century , there Is hutdly
ono who did not admit the dishonoring of the
crucifix at his reception , nnd many others
confessed to charges of the worst descrip
tion Clement V. , although ho suspended
the inquisitors powers In Franco , wrote to
Edward II to arrest all tno English
Tomplars , which was accordingly done
The trial of the Tomplais began in April ,
1310 , nnd n month later fifty-four of them
were burnt bv order of the Archbishop of
Sens , and a few days later four raoro worn
met by the same fate Clement and PniUp
had como to terms nnd the former con
domuod the Tomplars , and when thut pontiff
delivered his sermon against thorn Philip
was at his right hand The order was never
formally pronountod guilty of the crimes
laid to its charge , but many wore burned ut
tUo stake us a result of Philips ' hatred
The opinion that the monstrous charges
brought ugalnst the Templars were false ,
and the confessions were only extracted by
torture , is supported by the gcnoral results
of the Investigation carried on in almost
every country outside of Fiance , us councils
cxistct where the prejudice against them was
not so strong as in France
The con ncction between Templarism and
Masonry dates from thu time of the persecu
tion of the order under Philip the Fair ,
when tl > o English und Scotch Toinplurs
Jolnod the Freemasons lodges , and ns 11 vo
Knight ! could consccrato a convent and cro
nto Knights , they did so under the shield of
Masonic lodco rooms The order with ull its
secrets wus thus handed down to the present
time It is said that this association of the
Tomplars and MnsonB at the tltno of the
formers persecution led to the grnftlngupon
the ritual of the working craft of considera
ble eastern imagery and signs and symbols ,
many pf the latter being today a protection
to travelers through the hostllo til bos ot the
east.Tho order of the Knights of the Red
Cross , which is the first of the Templar degrees -
groes conferred under the present Masonic
working , is founded upon incidents con
nected with the building of the second tem
ple , aud which are said to hava taken place
during tbo reign of Darius I. , son of
Hystnspls , king ot Persia Many historians
bcliuvo Hystaspis to bo Ahasuorus , who dis
carded Vushtl and took Esther to bo his
wife This order Is more Intimately con
nected with Freomusonry than Is either of
the other two orders of Knights Templar ,
Tholr sessions nro held in a council cbumbor ,
culled the Hall of tbo East , aud the gather
ing ot tbo Knights represents an assemblage
of rulers and princes which was held at
Hubylon Tbo ritual of the order provides
that the room shall bo lu/nlshed in oriental
splendor , with red drapery and the blazing
sun ot.Porsla behind the sovereign master
For the latter , known also as the eminent
commander , is prescribed a costume of royal
scarlet or purple robes , with Persian crown
und golden scepter , Thu cnancollor or gen
erallfslmo wears a yellow and green roba
and turban , a broad purple glrdlo around his
waist and a Persian sun upon his breast
The master of the palace , or the captain general -
oral , wears green robes and turban , u broad
rod sash about bis waist , a sua on his breast ,
and is armed with a sword

Urothor John Medolo , P. G. M- , makes a
good point against the action ot the sovereign
grand lodge In the lata legislation of that
body allowing subordinate lodges to omit
mooting * which fell on legal holldajs , says
the Ilbchesier , N , Y. , Herald He justly
claims that such a law , before It ran become
operative , must first bo sauctloued by tbo
grand lodge , which alone has control of the
meeting of the subordinate , nnd ho gives
oino pertinent points in which the subordin
ate ledges are deeply Interested The chief
point Is tbo payment of dues If the mooting
falls on a legal holiday and Is omlttod and a
member cornea to pay his duos , and Is de
barred because the lodge Is uot In session ,
and that member is taken slek the law ot the
sovereign grand lodge declares that ho is not
entitled to benefits because ho did not pay
his dues in il.o lodge Now if the ledge
Ulogallv omits a meeting of this kind
without the pcinilsslcn of the grand
ledge , then the benefits must bo
• pild the same ns If the brother
hnd paid his dues The same rule applies to
the time of electing oflloors Wo give the
following case : Christmas this j oar false on
Wednesday Suppose Plornl lodge , whlirh Is
required by the constitution to elect ofliccry
on that night , should conclude to omit the
meeting becausu it win a holiday , nt what
other time could the ofllcers bo legally
elected ) The Bntuo law also affects the time
ot nuioudmg the bylaws , wnich must lav
ever two weeks after being proposed , and
are required to bo acted upon at the third
mooting Suppose u member of Floral or
Humboldt ledge otlors an amendment on the
11th day ot December nnd the lodge omits to
hold n meeting on both Christmas and Now
Years , what can ba done with thu pionosod
amendments ! These points ate of vital in
terest to each subordinate ledge and also
each subordinate encampment , nud ns
Brother Meilolo s ivs the ledges would do
well to hesitate In taking advantage of the
privilege direct from the sovereign grand
It bus been ostituatod that the order pays
fO ovury mlnutu for the relief of the dis
tressed , which shall lng hns no parallel cither
in scctaiiau or non-sectari.iii bodies ,
