larger than a man's baud is already on

country in which the latter road had en
joyed eminent , domain for years. The
Missouri Pacillc is now at work upon this
line nnd has all right of way secured ,
with depot grounds in Crcto , and it was
further understood by the recent acts of
their company that more 1) ) . & M. terri
tory was to bo invaded by the Missouri
Pacific people in a very short tine. To
check thcso Inroads , the H. & M. has
secured the entire right of way fora line
from Crete to Milford and the last work
of this character that secured the way be
fore the road was finished yesterday. It
is evidently the Intention of theB. . & M.
people to bmld this line At once and in
that way precede the Missouri Puoiu'c in
gathering in territory out of. the art that
would otherwise bo captured by its rival.

The Grand Lodge Organized Forty-three
Years Ago ,
Joe Smith's Efforts to Demoralize
Masonry The First TJodRes in the
State The Growth of "the Order
Its Grand Masters.
Davenport Democrat : The grand
lodge of Free and Accepted Masons in
Iowa- will assemble m this city iu their
forty-third annual communication next
Tuesday. And with a hearty greeting
and welcome for the grand oflicers and
representatives , the Domocrat-Gazottcin
honor of the event , gives its readers a
of tlio grand lodge , which' will interest
its Masonic readers , and bo read With
attention by the profanes. Of course the
history is but a sketch complete it would
require as much space as would the his
tory of the state itself ,
It was as early as 1810 that the question
of organizing a lodge in this state was
iirst mentioned , and at that time , while
Iowa wns only in-tlio second ycnr of her
territorial existence , it was a difficult
matter to iind men of sulllcicnt faith or
time to take hold of the matter and to
interest themselves in the organization
of a state lodge. The call was made by
James Clarke , afterward territorial gov
ernor , nnd ho in his proclamation re
quested the members of the craft to
meet in Uurllnelon1 , where they mightbe
able to hoar something for their good.
At this mooting Mr. Wflliani Thompson ,
Iliram O. Honnctt and Evan Kyans were
the most energetic , and thcso'gentlcmon
must , in a great degree , bo given the
credit for the organization of the order
in thn state whioli is now so prominent
and nourishing.
The Burlington lodge was the first one
formally established , and November 10 ,
1810 , the grand master of the Missouri
grand lodge issued to it the letter of dis
pensation. Together with the gentlemen
above mentioned , with the ofllcors , there
wore Messrs. Lovan Curtz , Hammer and
McCord , James It. Harsrook , late a resi
dent of Iowa City , was the iirst grand
master. The nest lodge' wns organized
at Bloomington , ' now Aluscatlne , in the
winter of 1841. Ansel Humphrey was the
Iirst master of this lodge. In the fall of
the same year a loduo was opened at Du-
buquc. The Iowa City lodge , which is
also among the oldest in tho' state , was
founded a early as October , 1843. Soon
after the forming of this lodge , the mem
bers of the four lodges then organized ,
determined on a day for the holding of r
Masonic convention. Iowa City was
designated as the plnco of meeting , and
on the first Tuesday in June , 1814 , dele
gates from these lodges ipot tlloro for the
uurposoof "proceeding to a complete
and perfect organization of the grand
lodge of Iowa. " At this' convention , the
lodges over the territory' were all repre
sented with the exception of ( ho
Turlington lodge. Besides the
lodges . represented , there wore
also delegates from two lodges ,
one being the Rising Sou , No. 12 , al
Moutrose , and Kookuk lodge. U. O.
These had bcon under the jurisdiction of
the Illinohgrand lodge , and had not been
invited ( o the .convention ; but at the In
stigation of' the Burlingtoa lodge they
carne unbidden to the Iowa City meeting ,
uud there , as a matter of course , wore
denied seats in the convention , not only
on account of their charters being , ar
rested , but also of their Mormon afliini-
ties ; for it will bo remembered that Joe
Smith had brought his colonies over into
that part of Iowa and was working his
principles into these two lodges. Ansel
Humphreys , of the 131oominirton lodge ,
presided at the meeting , and through liis
[ instrumentality and wisdom the grand
lodge of the state was organized.
The Burlington lodge was represented
bv J. H. McKenny , Y > cslcy Jones nnd II.
T. Hngins.
The Uloqmington lodge was represented
bv Worshipful Master Humphreys and
D'r. 8. B. Olds.
The Iowa City lodge was represented
bv Dr. William Reynolds , J. Hartsock
and Dr. Ballord.
The Dubuque lodge was represented by.
Timothy Fanning , G. W. Cunilngs and
T. S. Wilson.
At this mooting Oliver Cock was elec
ted grand master , and thus in duo form ,
the grand lodge of Iowa was established
on the 2d of January , 1H44. T. S. Parvin ,
who , with his father , Josiah Parvin , had
taken prominent part in the organization
of the grand lodge , was elected grand
secretary , a position ho has hold over
singe , with the exception of the year he
was grand master , ajulevcn llicn ho per
formed the grand secretary's duties. The
late Judge Joseph Williams delivered the
address at the convention. Such was
the beginning of the grand lodge of
There was little that occured of much
consequence till early m 1818 , the grand
lodge commenced the stocking of its li
brary and now it has in Us possession
one of the best and largest coUsction of
books in the States and a fine li
brary building of its own.
The first few sessions of the body wore
held at Iowa City , when in 1818 ,
it was deemed best to make an itinerant
body , or , as was generally romarkcti ,
"put It on wheels. " This was done in
order to remove it from the political
capital. The members of the fraternity
have ever regarded politics and mason-
ary as two separate institutions , and any
alliance of the two as wrong ; but in December -
comber , 1818 , two ambitious iiolilic'mns
sought the advantages that their masonic
friends and their rank might give thorn ,
and the ofliccs Which they sought came
to thorn very easy. Thii was used ns a
pretext by other politicians outside of the
order , and it cast , of course , an oppro
brium upon tno order to have such re-
ilcctions cast ufiori its members.
At about this'tintothe mania for the establishing
" " had its
tablishing ot "masonic colleges"
origin , and the grand lodge , with a
treasury of loss than foOO , wns hardly
able to indulge in < < this kind of work.
On this subjcctjtho/grand secretary , Prof.
T. S. Parwin , was pleased to remark in
his report , that "b/ippily , for once , the
dogged obstinacy of youthful members
overcame the proverbial wisdom and
strength Of the older onesr and the grand
lodge of Iowa was spared the humilia
tion of some of faof sister grand lodges
on thirf score' " '
It has also been the object of the Iowa
grand lodge in'tho'past not to recognize
any sentiment tending toward the estab
lishment of a national grand lodge. This
they have ever considered but the crea
tion of n great giant that would iu time
consume thu lesser bodies. The Iowa
masons hnvo also been not a little con
servative on all questions which seemed
o bear.upon the ultimate narrowing of
hnlr state rights , and tilts polut they
have guarded jealousy.
OAs is generally the case with largo pub
lie associations of this kind it has been
dil.icull for the Iowa grand lodge to
come up through all these years Without
contention und excitement. The Burl
ington meeting in 1800 was ono of ex
treme excitement , for nt this mooting

Masons from eastern states who werede -
sirious of afliliatng ! with Iho Iowa , lodge ;
and this-question , involving as-it did
much risk to the Iowa fraternity , must of
a necessity engender alarm. To this
grand lodge thuro came great numbers
of veterans in the Musonic cause in the
cast , and these sought to assist the olli-
cers of the state fraternity in reaching
some definite conclusion upon the sub
This is the only question that has given
the grand lodge any extraordinary
anxiety. Its government has been ex
ceptionally smooth and but little discus
sion has existed in tlio order. This may
bo counted as a reason for its peculiar
success iu the state ; for really there is no
state grand ledge in the union that has
prospered better than this. When it or
ganized in 1814 , there was a representa
tion of only four charter lodges repre
sented. Now it has 481 working lodges.

How Two Selected Belles Bohaveu
