To the Editor of TUB Bi'.u : Having at
tempted In my letter last week to show up
Mr. Plko and his methods of working BOIIIO-
what ( they could bo extended almost indoll-
nitely ) , we como to the present time. Mr.
I'tko , seeing the Cornouu body Increasing In
strength and Importance , resolved on u last
resort , and Inld his plans to capture the
grand lodges , grand chapters mid grand
commanderies of thu different1 states. How
tia has succeeded in his designs can ba scon
i > y the edicts that the grand masters of sev
eral states have Issued , and who , In nearly
all cases , are members of the southern and
northern jurisdictions , or expect to bo for
services rendered , and who must , according
to the secret constitution , obey all orders ,
Now how has this conspiracy against the urn ;
tor masons of thu United States been curried
outl Why , by a most disgraceful and un
masonic method , that of laying plans to put
only their men In as officers of subordinate
bodies nud then the grand bodies , and till ;
they have successfully carried out , unti
at this writing they control nearly cver.\
grund lodgu and grand body In the Unltci
States. Brethren , look to vour grand bodlei
niid see If it is not true , what I say , that it
every such body tboro is u llttlo ring , Ir
what may bo called the "ainon corner,11
which rules the destinies of the crand lodgo.
It is composed of the past grand masters
tilne-tcntns of whom are Thirty-second 01
Thirty-third dcitrroo members. And I bo
Hove It to bo n fact that very few of thesi
men received the Scottish Itlto degrees In t
ledge after petition ballot and so forth in i
regular manner , but by having the degree :
given to them by communication , anywhorc
and everywhere. Two past grand master !
Unit 1 know of hnva been requested to "conn
up to headquarters" and the receiving o
these degrees "will bo made easy for you. '
Oh , temporal Oh , Moses I and yet the Pilti
men never peddle degrees. Oh , no. An
other of their taking ways is to pick out mei
who nro "bright" and ballot for them ; tin
brother is then notiiied to como forward um
take the degrees. Alitml Alas I How I :
thin , brother master masons ) It Is generally
understood that when a man Joins any soci
ety that It must bo of his own free will am
accord. Now as regards the carrying t
muasuro through a grand body. It is onlj
of Into that master masons have learutcd any
thing about the Scottish Kite , and very fov
euro to go .into the question of legitimacy
As a brother said to mo the other day : "
think the grand Icdgo ought to have uothln )
to do with any degrees a.bovo that of mastei
mason. What do muster masons knov
about any other than the tlirei
degrees. I ki\ow \ nothing abou
Scottish Rlto degrees and probably can
less. " And by the same token tins worth ;
brother was ut 0119 time n senior grand war
den , but was dropped before becoming gram
master. Why ? Was it , perchance , because
of his open speaking ; ho always spoke hi
mind und is a staunch supporter o
ancient craft masonry. Now tli
Plko men offer n resolution to th
effect that none but u specilloi
members of other branches of- masonry u
recognl/ed. of course naming the two Piki
bodies of the Scottish Uito. The majority o
thu master masons , us Isold before , eithei
not knowing or caring leas about the matter
vote for it without question , considering Urn
a resolution offered by n master niasou suf
ilclunt , and trusting to hia honor as such , no
dren.ning , 01 course , that this was but a par
of n concerted plan.
Now I assert that a grand ledge and over ;
master mason must stand to and abide by th
ancient landmarks , oua of which is thu
there can bo no innovation made in the bed ;
of Masonry. The luroo decrees is nnothei
landmark. Now u grand lodge wnich retog
nizes any degree , 1 don't care what it is
other than the tbroo degrees of 13. A. , F. C
and M. M. , , and possibly part of the Rova
Arch degrees , Is guilty of an innovation am
violates an ancient landmark.
This Is wlmc thu Plko men are doing ii
nearly every state In thu union ; they havi
entered into a horrid conspiracy to use tin
grand ledge oQlcers , tno graud lodg
interest , and the grand ledge funds for at
unworthy and unmasonlo purpose , namely
that of foisting upon ancient craft mnsonr ;
an illngitlmato body of the Scottish Ultound
not only that , but it Is a body that Is dc
stroylng the peace and harmony of tin
brethren in every state where they have , b ;
their questionable methods of running foi
masonic ofllco , bringing themselves down ii
the level -politicians , and doing what tin
master masons , If aware of it , would bnii |
down upon tno unxvorthy heads of the Piki
men the woll-meritcd con to mot of the \ vli1 1
As a proof of what I have stated , show m
nn Instance where the Corncuu member
have created any disturbance. I defy tli
Pine members to give mo a solitary instance
and , more than this , look at New York to
day , and some other states , whom there ar
suvural Scottish Uitu bodies meeting , tli
members of which are found side by side li
lodgu , chapter and commandery , peace am
harmony over pro vailing. No instance c.n
bo named where disruption of inasonl
brotherhood has occurred save where tin
inherent rights of Freemasons have bcui
trampled upon , and only then in suet
states where the Pike member
have obtained possession of the gram
ledge olllcos. Another very questlonabli
method of Mr. Plica's and his followers is t <
ilood tlio country with pamphlets , taking oin
grain of truth und covering it up with i
inasii of untruths. To give instances woulc
bo beyond thu limits of this article , but taki
thu committee's report to the grand ledge o
lawn at its last session page 8 of thu pain
phlot , copies of which were distributed al
over the ntato of Nebraska , after the gram
ledge of lown met and before the gram
lodge of Nebraska mot who was creating die
turbuncus thonl They guy : "Wodonotlim
any grand ledge of the United Status , o
elsuwhoro , or any grand master , has eve
rucognUod the Cerneau body of the Scottlsl
Kilo ns legitimate or duly constitutcd.nor d <
wo Und that any such grund ledge or gram
master has taken any action to prohibit o
provout the conferring of the Scottish Riti
degrees by the supiomo councils of uithe
the southern or northern Jurisdiction of th
United States. " Now mark the deception
It may bo true that ao grand ledge or gram
master has over recognized the Curneau hod ;
of the Scottish Rite as such , but on December
bor 7,1S08 , the sovereign graud cousistor ;
notified the grund ledge of the state of Nuv
York of its establishment and full organlzu
tton on October 24 , 1S07 , which noiill
cation wits cordluily received and or
dercd on file ( see grand ledge o
Now York proceedings , 1603. page 131) )
Thuro is no such thing as the "Ccrneu
Body" us such , so you BOO how the Plko mo
deceive these who have uot studied the his
tory of the Scottish Rlto bodlos In America
and it Is for this very reason that tlijs artlc !
is wrltton. Da Witt Clinton was grand mas
ter of the grand ledge of Now York , as wor
also Hobort D. Holmes and Stepbku H
Johnson , There are thrco graud masters wh
were members of ttia Cornoau Body , An
it Is quite true that we do not Hud any gran
ledge or grand master prohibiting the south
cm or northern jurisdictions from couforrln
thn Scottish Rlto degrees , for very good rot
sons. Firm , because until Pike got contrc
of nearly all the grand lodges , umstor mi
sons in grund ledge assembled have confine
themselves to grand ledge bustuoss , wbic
does not tncluila the bolstering up of Illegiti
mate Scottish Rlto bodies , neltner hnvo they
In the past prohibited the supreme council for
the United States from conferring the Scot
tish Ulto degree , for the same good reason.
Secondly , they considered the Scottish -Ulto
question as not being proper business for a
grand ledge to have anything to do with ,
thereby taking pattern from and following
in the foots to in of the grand innstor of the
; rand ledge of England In 1810 , as will bo
oen from the following extract , to bo found
on pugo 3 8 , Preston's Illustrations of
vlusoury : "That the addre.vs of tho27tti of
September , 1810 , was iccolvcd by the M. W.
; rand master scaled , having been trnns-
nlttod direct to him ; that , upon perusal his
roval highness found It to contain questions
relative to the order of the roval nrch , which
could not , under any circumstances , bo dis
cussed In the grund lodgo. " Note this last
paragraph well. Now In most , If not nil of
, ho resolutions presented by the Plko men ,
thev craftily insert , "that wo dec-lino to outer
upon nny discussion or Investigation regard
ing the legitimacy pf the several Scottish
Itlto bodies , " etc. , etc. Then they turn round
ind declare the southern and northern bodies
to bj the only legitimate bodies. Now will
nny honest man toll mo how a master mason
or anyone else Is to dccldo between us , with
out Investigation and discussion. If the
muster masons are to Judg.0 us , then they
must first hoar the evidence ; If they dcollno
Lo hoar the evidence , or > n other words , to
do what the Pike members do not want them
to do , namely , investigate , tuon they must
not Judge us.
1 most earnestly appeal to mnstor
masons to stnml by tholr rights
ns master masons , anil to put
themselves In the pl.ico of the Cernoau
members , and nsk themselves this question ,
Is this mutter brought before gruiid lodges ,
In the Interest of tlio blue lodges or in the
Interest of it rite entirely foreign to
them , nud In tlio interest of llllgltl-
inato bodies trying to defeat a rival
body , and the only legitimate ono in
the United States ! Master mason , you who
do not belong to any Scottish Rite , must settle -
tlo the question. Suppose your grand master
should by edict attempt to compel you to do
violence to your manhood and obllgutlons , In
direct opposition to what you wcro most
solemnly told before you bccatno a mason 1
Suppose your grand master was n member
and ugcnt of ono Masonic insurance com
pany , which only takes nustor masons Into
uiombcrshlp , and that you belonged to
nnothei' Masonic insurance uompiuy , with
the s.unc restriction ns to membership , and
that ho was to issue an edict compelling you
to withdraw from your coiupauv , and to Join
his on pain of cxpulsonl What would you
think of such u maul Would you obey hia
"Slaves may be so made and coerced , but
Mnsons should not bo deceived tnoy
should rend all sides of the question ,
uud look well into matters before deciding.
"Tho Plko men are making a great fuss
about our sovereign grand commander visit
ing the college of rites on his v'isit to Franco
in 1SSS. They try and make out tint It was
the grand ledge section of the grand orient
which ho visited. He nays not , and asks the
very pertinent question , Cannot ono Scot
tish Kite moinbor visit another Scottish Rite
member , even although the grand lodges
have interdicted master masons from visiting
blue lodges under the obedience of the
grand orient ! If Brother Gorgas visited the
grand orient or a blue loiign ( ns u muster
mason ) why does not his ledge or the grand
ledge prefer charges against him ! Is not
this the same old scheme of Piko's men to
decline the uninformed by playing on the
words "grand oriunt ? " Now do you see
through their scheme ? If Gor"as bus done
wrong , it Is no reason why I and all the other
members of our order should bo punl'ticd
for his fault ( If any ) Why is it that these
late turn-coats from our order should wait
until now , before denouncing the act ? They
know It In June , IbSvis well as they do now.
It is because they were soro-headcd ovei
fancied sights , and wore moro easily niiinlp
ulalcd by the Pilto inon.
The grand orient , in its relations to the
several degrees , is not easily understood ,
hence It is easy for Pike mon to state the
atfair in such a manner ns to place Brothct
Gorgas In n bad light. Now , Brother Gor
gas states that ho visited thu council of de
liberation of the college of rites of the grand
orient ; that his visit related to Scottish Rite
masonry only , and that ho refused to visit a
symbolic ledge in Paris , and tnat the rela
lions of our body with the grand college 01
rites in France arothoso of ono Scottish HStc
body with another , and are wholly independ'
cut of symbolic masonry. Mr. Pcciihaui , in
his letter , gives this visit of Brother Gorgas
as his reason for withdrawing , and gives the
names of the grand orient oillcpra and of the
members of the council of the order ; also ,
the ofllccrs of the grand college of rites. .
Homo of the brethren uro ofllccrs of the
grand orient us well as oQlccrs of the college
of rites , which is the Scottish Rite , body , and
this , ho says , shows beyond controversy tlml
they are members of anu owe allegiance tc
the graud orient. Was there over such t
shallow protest given for such u traitorou
proceeding ! Cannot u , brother bo au ofllcoi
in the Blue ledge , in tbochnpter , in the com '
mandcry und the Scottish Rite body at 'the
same time ! Why , you see it is dpno righl
hero all the timo. Now tbo sovereign grand
commander of the grand college ol
rites may also be an ofllcer oi
a blue lodge ; ho must ho t
member or ho could not bo a Scottish Rite
Mason , that is vor.v certain. Knights
Templar in lown , wo will suppose , com mil
some oftenso and all the Knights rcmplan
In the United States are intordlctcJ from vis
itlng in lowu , or un Iowa Knight Touiplai
from visiting outside of Iowa , does this af
fect any other body than the KuighU
Templar ! I guess not. Muster Mnsons oi
Royal Arch Masons of any state could visit
lodges or chapters iu Iowa unless prohibited
by tlioir several grand bodies. At present
master masons cannot visit blue lodges In
Franco , but Royal Arch Masons or Scottlnli
Rite Masons could. This is very plain ,
brethren , "Tho truth ia mighty and must pro
vail. " Wo realize that our obligations us
muster masons and as gentlemen , preclude
us from calling the Pike mouibers ( who arc
also brother master masons ) liars , deadbeats
boats , Impostors , renegades , etc. , as Albert
Pllce and nearly nil of his follo.wers iiortli
and south viciously call us , but wo will cn <
deavor to exorcise brotherly love , relief unO
truth and leave the result In thu hands
of the Supreme Grand Master of the
universe. If Pike uud his followers choose
to call us names and bear falsa witncs'
against us , they must reconcile such conducl
with their own consciences if they can. Wn
remember that "no coiito-itiou should evei
arise among masons , save that noblu emula
tion of who can best work who best ngroo.11

There is nn longer ndy doubt about Sioux
