A Screeching Karoo.
The following is taken from' the lost issue
of the Masonio Review :
"Tho latest ( back counties not hoard from )
order to attach itself to the Masonio institu
tion is the 'Independent International Order
of C Vis , ' of which 'Nest No. "Mias just been
instituted at Cairo , 111. No man can bo made
an 'Owl' who has not ifirst been made a
Mason. Symbolic Masonry will soon bo coin-
polled to publish a directory in order to keep
up.with the precession. With Cerneaus ,
Snriners nnd Owls , Masonry is fast becom
ing a 'screeching farce.1 " The Tyler.
Pertinent to the above wo nro reminded
that some time ago wo tnado In these pages
the statement in substance that "the Mystic
bhnno is not now ( then ) regarded as a Ma
sonic body , but how long uoforo it will bo so
recognized wo nro not able to say. " For
making this statement wo were brutully as
saulted ( with a pencil ) and threatened with
most diru conscauencos ; in fact , there was
no end to the terrible things some person was
Kolngto do to us.
Now , what is the factl Simply this : The
Mystlo Shrine exhibition which took place
at the close of the northern jurisdiction
Scottish rite reunion in this city during the
present month was paragraphed SB the
lilting and crowninjjclose of the "Masonio ( I )
jubilee of the week. "
For a while the Shnno was nn aside a
good-fellowship concern ) then it grow to bo
u contingent of Masonry , and at last it
assumed the role or principal and Masonry
is thp contingent of the Shrine the Shrine
being the right hand of the northern juris
diction rite in this jurisdiction , and is using
the northern jurisdiction rite nnd the
Knights Templar society us u fulcrum for
Its lover to overcome the fabric of Ancient
Craft Masonry. The facts all point this
way. While Master Masons are degraded
for "conscience sake" in every ledge in
Ohio , these Mohammedans and Scottish
chiefs , who hold the reigns nnd the whips
and ply the spurs arc the in full fellowship
with the powers that bo of the grand lodgo.
They speak , nud it is done ; they command ,
and it stands fast ; while just and upright
Masons aro.shamofacod . nnd drop their
leads as their oppressors pass by ,
