The reason is a very simple one as I will briefly explain. In the early history Of Masonry - it was an order composed pfM Operative Masons, that?M? tMaspn who worked with hammer and trowel, wiio as entered apprentices were beareis of burdens,; carrying the mortar and materials, and as Fell ow Crafts, squaring the stohes and placing them: in position in the buildings and after thn8 serv i ng became Master Workmen and competent or qualified to work aa such and -receive masters . wages. Contractors we would call them now.KThese Master Masons had an organization, possibly; similar in some respects to what are now called Knights of Labor or more correctly Brotherhood of Skilled Mechanics. They had a ritual for certain occasions and they had signs r ard: tokens which were kjiowhy arid f ecognizeel, and a Master Workman 7 could travel and make himself known as such. They haa a ritual of ceremonies for laying! corner stones, it was an essential paibojf, their work, j We Freemaebbs havr tradition thai the system of Masonry bad its be ginning at the buildin gof King Solonio n 'a Temple, that magnifi cen t :'ed i fice v hich ywas-1 he ad iu ir ation of the world.

It corresponds with -religion in this, that i it requires a belief in Deity. This Deity, to the Christian if a son is the Triune ;God the ,Fa ther, Son and Holy Ghost; to the Jewish Masonithe Jehovah ot the Old .Testament, who delivered tiiemby miraculous interposition from; Egyptian bondage and made of them a mighty nation; tin the Mohaniedan ; Af ah; . to. all ; one great eternal iBeing to be rever r ccd. aud Udorod. .Masonry. is; a Ijeauttful 8ystVm'r; of mDraiity taught . by : syrabolsvt teachee ioyo a.nd service to each brother, pe rfectT ' equal i ty ; 111 world ly sta- tion, -obedience to tho laws of the co u n try , char ty to . al 1 ; man kii 1 d , temperan ce, 1 a n d 1 1 h e s u b d u i n g o t passion, relief to the ; widow ; and orphan, protection to female' vhv tue, warning, ? aud r support and service to one another. , If any Mason comes short in these par ticulars p he I is. acting contrary to his profession and doiii violence to the principles ot the order, s Brayerwas -offered by the act ing .Grand Chaplain. .
