A. M., ol liOgan Oregon, assisted by visiting
brethren from Multnomah Lodge No. 1, of
Oregon City, performed a very interesting
ceremor.y at their regular monthly meeting
on the l:ith Inst. A procession was formed
in the lodge room, which marched to the
grounds owned by the order when a pine
tree was planted with all due Masonic cere
mony, l'ast Master, John II. Uwellen, of
Springwater, was the orator of the occasion
and in a masterly manner told those assem
bled what had led to the proceedings of to
day, he said In part: That In the years
gone by as far back as 72 a number of
sturdy pioneers, of Oregon, had assembled
together and planted thia home of our
beloved order here in depths of the foresta
of our laud. The next thing was to select a
name for it. A solitary pine tree which
grew here suggested the name which was
adopted and by which our lodge is known
to-day. Many ol the pioneers, who organ
ized this lodge are numbered with our
honored dead. The giant pine hasalso been
prostrated by the storms, but we are proud
to say the work of their hands now entrusted
to our care still grows and nourishes, and
to day is i:i a nourishing condition and ao
in commemoration of those whose names
and memories are dear to us and also to
perpetuate the name or this lodge, we to day
plant this pine tree. Procession returned
to lodge room where all did justice to
bountiful dinner which the stewards of
Lone Pine know how to supply.
