Every candidate for the mysteries and privi. leges of Freemasonry must, in the first instance, be proposed and seconded at a regular lodge, full particulars being at the same time furnished as to his name, age, profession or occupation, and place of abode, so that due inquiry may be made into his character and antecedents. He is balloted for at the next regular lodge, and in the event of his being elected, must, prior to his initiation, subscribe his name to the following solemn declaration, namely, that "unbiassed by the improper solicitation of friends and uninfluenced by mercenary or other unworthy motive," he "freely and voluntarily" offers himself as a candidate. Thus, a person who is desirous of becoming a Freemason must discover among his friends and acquaintances one who is able and willing to undertake the responsibility of proposing him for initiation and membership, it being strictly forbidden to Masons to solicit outsiders to join the Order. The fee payable for initiation must not be less than five guineas, inclusive of registration in the books of Grand Lodge and Grand Lodge certificate in the case of lodges in England; and three guineas, exclusive of registration and certificate, in respect of lodges abroad; but every lodge is entitled to place the amount of this fee at a higher figure if it chooses, and also to fix the amount payable as a subscription to the lodge by each of its members.

Freemasonry is not a benefit society, yet it disburses large sums annually in relieving its distressed members. The Grand Lodge Fund of Benevolence is administered by a Board, which meets monthly at Freemasons' Hall, the sums granted amounting in the aggregate to some £9,000 a year, the individual grants ranging from as high as 100 and £150 down to as low as £5 and even £2, while the number relieved annually is between 300 and 350.

There are also three principal charitable institutions maintained chiefly by the voluntary subscriptions of the craft-namely, (1) the Royal Masonic Institution for Girls, founded in 1788, and (2) the Royal Masonic Institution for Boys, founded in 1798, each of which spends annually between £13,000 and £14,000 in clothing, educating, and maintaining in the one case about 270 girls, and in the other over 280 boys; and (3) the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution, founded in 1842, which spends annually between £19,000 and £20,000, the bulk of which is devoted to annuities to aged and indigent brethren and their widows, each brother receiving 40 a year, and each widow £32. Each Province has also its own benevolent fund, while many of them maintain by voluntary subscription educational and benevolent institutions for the relief of their own distressed members and their families. A large number of private lodges also have benevolent funds of their own. The lodges in the Colonies and abroad remit no dues for charity to England, but administer their own relief funds; but English Colonial Masons are eligible to be relieved in England, and they and their widows and children are eligible to receive the benefits of our three principal charitable institutions.

The headquarters of English Freemasonry are at Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, W.C. Here United Grand Lodge, consisting of the Present and Past Grand Officers, with the Masters, Wardens, and Past Masters of the private lodges, holds its quarterly communications on the first Wednesday in March, June, September, and December, and its Grand Festival on the Wednesday following St. George's Day ed April). Here, too, are held the Quarterly

Convocations of the Supreme Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons-which is a recognised part of Constitutional Masonry on the first Wednesday in February, May, August, and November. Here also meet, on the third Tuesday in every month, the Board of General Purposes, which is immediately concerned with the internal administration of the affairs of Grand Lodge and its private lodges, and on the last Wednesday but one in every month the Board of Benevolence, which administers the fund at the disposal of Grand Lodge for purposes of benevolence. Here, too, are the offices of the brother and companion who is Grand Secretary of Grand Lodge and Grand Scribe E. of Supreme Grand Chapter. Lastly, here are located the offices of the three principal charitable institutions; the Girls' School itself being at Battersea Rise, the Boys' School at Wood Green, and the Benevolent Asylum, which accommodates a small number of the annuitants, at Croydon.


The Grand Lodge of Scotland was established in Edinburgh on the 24th November, 1736, when thirty-three of the hundred or so lodges that had been invited to attend were represented by their Masters and Wardens, and William St. Clair, of Rosslin, having renounced for himself and his heirs the rights he was held to have possessed under certain charters as hereditary patron and protector of the Masons of Scotland, was unanimously elected Grand Master. Masonry in Scotland, as in England, has had its schisms and other vicissitudes of fortune to contend with, but it is now a prosperous organisation, with His Majesty the King as its Patron, and the Lord Saltoun as its M.W. Grand Master. The number of lodges on the roll of Grand Lodge exceeds 600, among them being the Lodge of Edinburgh (Mary's Chapel) No. 1, which is in possession of an almost unbroken series of records, commencing from the last day in July, 1599, its existence dating from a still earlier period, though how much earlier it is now impossible to say. are several other lodges of early date, including "Mother Kilwinning" Lodge, which is placed at the head of the roll without a number, and declared to be the oldest lodge in Scotland, and sundry that date from the seventeenth century. 600 and more lodges are formed into Provincial Grand Lodges at home and District Grand Lodges in the Colonies and abroad, those in India, however, being placed under an officer who is designated "Grand Master of all Scottish Freemasonry in India." Lodges are formed and persons initiated after the same manner as under the United Grand Lodge of England, the amounts payable as fees being, however, somewhat lower.

career since 1730, though not without serious vicissitudes of fortune, and that at the present time the private lodges on its roll fall not far short of 400, those outside Dublin and in the colonies and abroad being formed into Provincial Grand Lodges -that title being applied to all lodges organised into groups, whether at home or in foreign parts. Its affairs are administered much in the same way as in England and Scotland, while the constitution of new lodges and the initiation of candidates are similar in all things essential. There are also other Masonic organisations in Ireland, as to which the same remarks apply as te those in England.

The Grand Lodge meets at Freemasons' Hall, Molesworth Street, Dublin, on the first Thursday in March, June, October and December, and also on the 27th December (St. John the Evangelist's Day). The Committee of Charity and Inspection, the Grand Lodge of Instruction, and the Board of General Purposes also meet at the same place on certain specified days. Here also are the offices of the Grand Secretary. There are in addition two charitable institutions, of which the Masonic Girls' School was founded in 1792, while the Masonic Boys' School is of more recent establishment. The premises of both institutions are located in the vicinity of Dublin.
