Two other bills designed to perfect this system of handling minor liquor cases, were passed by the house yesterday and also will have to wait until next session to obtain senate consideration: _ One of these, proposed by Representative Stobbs, Republican, Massachusetts, would modify the famous "Jbnes five and ten" law by limiting to a $500 fine and six months at hard labor, or both, the penalty, for a person, not an'habitual, offender,-selling, manufacturing or transporting a gallon or less of Hquqr. The other bill. > would " define the "petty offenses" Which could be tried by commissioners Instead of Juries as cases In which the penalty Js not more than six months at hard labor or $500 fine or both. ' All" offenses punishable by death or more than'one year In Jail would be classed as felonies and offenses in between these two extremes as misdemeanors.

Fletcher, the new Imperial potentate, is a man to whom nothing appeals BO much, as Masonry. It has been bis hobby from the time of his induction in 1902 and since his retirement from business in 1017 he has made it his life's 'work. ' Born the son of a. lumberman In Ivy, Ontario, on July 23, 1860, young Fletcher completed his education before his 13th birthday and entered the business of his father, taking planks from planers In the latter's mill. A hard worker, he advanced in the Industry and, desiring to be on his own, went to Rochester in 1000 and aet up a business. Successful from the start, ho retired at 48 to devote his time to fraternal and civic projects. He .had been president of the New York State Lumber Dealers' Association, trustee of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce aJid Is now a bank director. In 1017-18 he served on the War Industrie's Board. His Masonic record began In 1902 when he received his degree in Corinthian Temple Lodge No. 805. He assisted in forming^ Zetland Lodge No. 961 and became its first master. H« served the grand lodge as senior grand deacon from 1925 to 1827. He was exalted to the royal arch in Ionic Chapter No. 210 in 1908 and in the same year became, a, member of Cyrene Commandery' No. 39, later receiving the Order of the 1 Temple.

The Shjelue is faiuilHrly known as "the piaygvguftd Qt Masonry," al- tarlff commission. The Democrats are planning make'an'issue, of the tariff bill. Representative Dickinson of Iowa defended his vote on the Hawley-Smoot bill and won his contest for the nomination in Iowa. His argument, of course, was that the bill .benefited agriculture. Most of the protest against the measure is coming from the eastern states, and particularly businesses which Import raw materials or articles needed in manufacturing. Many of these manufacturing interests are secretly hoping the senate coalition will defeat t{ia bill and leave the status quo. The financial district in New York which, a decade ago; was strongly in favor of a protective tariff, is now talking about the Ill-effects on American foreign trade and possible reprisals abroad as a consequence of the new tariff law here. American investments in tho last decade in the foreign field have increased so -that a higher tariff law would naturally be opposed by many financial elements. Some of the staunchest Republican papers in the country are criticizing tho tariff bill and hoping for its failure. The Democratic press, of course, has traditionally been opposed to hlgli tariffs. Indications are, nevertheless, that, notwithstanding the strength of the protests being made from Republican, as well as from Dempcratio sources, the final conference report will go to the president for signature within tho next two weeks.

Its 50-year history, is one of the most picturesque in ~ the annals of American fraternallsm. In 1876, Billy Florence, an actor, and several friends formed tho lirat temple, in New York City. They called it Mecca and gave the order the dress and forms of the Arabian because these appealed to the theatrical and colorful ideas of the founders. General Lew Wallace, author of Ben Hur. was one of these. He contributed much of tho oriental atmosphere to the order, with its red fez, chanters and brilliant costumes. More temples followed, and in 1878 the fraternity was placed gn a national basis by the organization of an imperial council, composed of four representatives of each temple. There are now more than 150 temples in North America with membership varying from 2000 to 23,000 and total membership of more than a, half million.
