Organization Decides lo Consider
Proposed Changes in Constltu
. tlon Another Year, Before Tak
ing Definite. Action.
The Grand Lodge of Masons yester
day elected officer for the etuming
year aa follows:
Grand master. Charles B. Wolver
ton, Portland.
Deputy grand master, Thomas M.
Baldwin. Prinevllle.
Senior grand warden, George H.
Burnett, Salem.
Junior grand warden, S. S. Spencer,
Grand treasurer. "W. A. Cleland,
Grand secretary, James F. Robinson,
J. E. Werlein, Portland, trustee of
- the educational fund.
Election of officers was the event of
consuming Interest In the session of
the Grand Lodge of Masons yesterday,
and was reached at a late hour in the
afternoon. The first- three offices In
the gift of the' chief "body of the fra
ternity in this state were awarded to
Judge C. E. Wolverton, Thomas M.
Baldwin and-George M. Burnett, with
out opposition.
It required more than one ballot to
select a grand junior warden, that posi-
. tlon being the stepping-stone to higher
honors. S. S. Spencer, of Eugene, was
elected from the floor of the Grand
Lodge. In accordance with the secrecy
with which the Masonic fraternity sur
rounds its proceedings. It was impos
sible to ascertain how many ballots
were taken or who were the favored
members but it is known that- Henry
Koe and W. C. Bristol received compli
mentary Dauots.
- Installation Conies Today.
The officers of the Grand Lodge will
be installed during the session of that
body today, and soon after assuming
the leadership of the fraternity in the
state. Grand Master Wolverton wil an
nounce his appointments. All of the
officers below those elected yesterday
are gifts from the chief officer. These
officers will also be installed so that
the working machinery of the order
may be complete when the hour of ad-.
Journment is reached this evening.
James F. Robinson, grand secretary,
and W. A. Cleland. grand treasurer,
were re-elected, the former having
served the Grand Lodge for more than
six years. Neither of them had op
position for the positions.
Failure of the Grand Lodge to adopt
the new constitution recommended by
the committee allowed the election of
a deputy grand master at this session.
The new law provided that the position !
should be an appointive one and should
confer no rights of succession to the
chair of the master. It has heretofore
been customary to consider the deputy
as the only available candidate, his se
lection being a foregone conclusion.
Action Is Postponed.
Fearing that the custom might still
prevail of following the line of suc
cession, and thus conferring on the
grand master the power to practically
name his own suacessor, the Grand
Lodge postponed consideration of the
new constitution until next year.
Those delegates supporting the move
ment to postpone, urged that a step
of such tremendous importance In Ma
sonry should have full consideration by
the Blue Lodge membership, and the
matter will be closely studied. It is
said to have been 40 years since the
rresent constitution was adopted, and
while no effort has been made to de
viate from the customs of the order, it
is urged by the supporters of the mod
ern document, that they be brought up
.to date.
This morning a report will be sub
mitted to the Grand Lodge from a
committee appointed for the purpose
of making the degree work In Oregon
uniform in character, the committee
having been Instructed to prepare a
cipher key for the use of all lodges.
At this time the lodges of the state use
work from other states, all based upon
the same principles but using different
language of expression.
Eastern Star Received.
During the afternoon session of the
Grand Lodge a committee-was received
from the Grand Lodge of the Eastern
, Star, bringing the congratulations of
the 'lady Masons" as well as a large
offering of beautiful flowers. The com
mittee was composed of Past Grand
Patron G. M. Hyland and Past Grand
Matrons Jennie E. Reaxnes and Mar
garet Lutke, the members being accom
panied by Most Worthy Grand Matron
Ella Simmons Washburn, of Wisconsin,
and Past Grand Matron Mrs. Krebs,
of California, as guests of honor.
The visit was Immediately returned
by a Masonic Grand Lodge committee
composed of J. R. N. Bell, H. L. Plttock
and B. B. Beekman.
Past Grand Master D. P. Mason, of
Albany, arrived at the convention yes
terday afternoon and was Immediately
presented with one of the emblematic
aprons, which will hereafter be fur
nished to each person who attains that
high honor.
'Degree Work Scheduled.
Portland Lodge! will tonight confer
the third degree at Masonic Temple for
the benefit of out-of-town members of
the Grand Lodge.
While the Grand Lodge of Masons is
behind with its schedule of work, the
Eastern Star is working exactly ac
cording to programme, and yesterday
afternoon Installed its officers for the
ensuing year.
The thing of Interest in a legislative
way was the fight precipitated by dele
gates from cities other than Portland
for a migratory Grand Lodge, many of
them being desirous of entertaining the
distinguished body from year to year.
Under the present law, the Grand
Lodge is located permanently in Port
land. The effort to -hold a meeting
elsewhere failed.
Charters were allowed to new chap
ters at Creswell, Seaside, Portland,
Ranier, Bandon and Myrtle Creek. The
principal officers of each of the chap
ters were present and installed.
Tonight the tents of the faithful of
the tribe of Al Kader, nobles of the
Mystic Shrine, will be open to the
Moslem of every clime, and It is pro
posed to prepare the. way for the cara
Machinists Return to Iron Works as
Nonunion Men.'
Serenity apparently prevails at the
Willamette Iron & Steel Works as re
gards the machinists' strike, for yes
terday there was a force of 40 men em
ployed in the machine shops, and it was
said that most of them were old em
ployes and more had applied for po
sitions. Though the men walked out recently
as a means of forcing the corporation to
recognize 8 hours as a maximum work
ing day, those re-employed- are labor
ing 9 hours, and some of them say
they have decided that the only method
to be pursued is to work for a universal
8-hour day by legislative enactment.
"While we have employed as high as
100 machinists and apprentices in the
machine shop, -we have not work for
such a force at present and are turn
ing out without difficulty the contracts
we had accepted," said Treasurer Ball
yesterday. "Our men are satisfied so
far as we have ascertained, and we feel
that we have gained an important
point toward establishing an 'open shop,'
for every machinist at work is a non
union man. Some of them have be
longed to the organization for a long
period and others joined shortly before
the strike, but those who applied for
places have withdrawn their cards."
Until the labor difficulty is settled
the corporation does not propose to ac
cept any large contracts, and the offi
cials say they do not expect trouble
from other departments in the plant.

her the company was protesting the
payment of the policy and that it would
be necessary for her to . sign a re
lease. She signed in two places, as

Upper River Men, as Opposed to
Glllnetters, Believed to Lead in
Choice of Successor.
With State Master Fish Warden Mc
Allister on his way to San Francisco
to tender his resignation to Governor
Benson, speculation is rife here regard
ing which of the fishing interests, the
lower or the upper "river men, will
have the greater Influence in naming
his successor. The belief is expressed
that the upper river men will be vic
tors in the fight which will follow Mc
Allister's resignation.
. The seinemen, the trapmen and the
wheelmen, who are opposed to the gill
netters, now have the greater influ
ence, or would be expected to have, In
the settlement of such questions. The
wheelmen represent the capital and are
located up the river. Aligned with
them are seine and trapmen. who have
a common enemy In the Fishermen's
Union, or the giilnetters, as they are
more commonly called.
Speculation in this reBpect transcends
even the identity of the probable suc
cessor. It is believed that the lower
river men were not advised previously
of McAllister's Intention and have not
agreed on any one maci. . McAllister,
while professing to be neutral, is said
to owe, in part, his position to the up
per river men and the commercial trav
elers of the state. The naming of his
successor is believed to be one of the
reasons for his trip to San Francisco.
The question as to who will have the
appointing power is unsettled. Jay Bow.
erman, president of tue State Senate,
now Acting Governor, will have a great
deal to say, It is possible. His atti
tude is not disclosed.
McAllister, -it Is said, has received an
offer of the management of the affairs
Of the Home Rule Association of Ore
gon, - which is opposed to prohibition,
at a salary of $6000 a year, with a
two years' contract. He rejected the
offer several days ago. it is said, but
was influenced to consider It again.
