The following gesolutions were unanimously
passed at a regale.r cornranvicatiort of Eula-
Ha Lodge, held Alpril
Whereas, The President of the United
States has' been cruelly assassinated, this
Lodge of Master Masons, therefore feels it to
be a duty which it owes to itself, to the great
brotherhood to which it belongs, and to the
sentiments of humanity which it inculcates,
to formally declare its detestation or the great
crime and mingle its expressions of li' , lartfelt
sorrow with the people throughout the n aL
tion. And, - I
Whereas, A Mason is "taught to be a penes- 1
ble citizen, never to ..be concerned in plots
and conspiracies against the peace and wel
fare of the nation, nor to behave himself un
dutifully to inferior magistrates, but is, to
conform to every lawful authority, to uphold
on every i occasion the interests of the earn
inanity, and zealously prcimete the prosper
ity of his own country," Therefore,
R.esolved, That inithe murder of Abrilram
Liu' coin, Presidentdsf the United,Statss, we
recognize a. foul blow against humanity, a
crime disgraceful to the age, war,against - the
institutions of our country, and the wicked
momentary triumph of violence against law,
order and right.
, Resolved, That this Lodge, having no ran
ity with political faiths or systems, standing
as it were by the grave of the martyred
Chief Magistrate, can butAeplore the loss of
Abraham Lincoln :at the moment when eon
,' curring Circumstances united to invest him
with the power to gratifij his disposition' of
restoring unity, peace and fraternity through
out the Republic.
Resolved; That the kindly, forgiving. con/
ciliating, disposition manifested by Abraham
Lincoln, endears his name and : memory-/to
all future time, and nowhere can they be
more fittingly enshrined than within th/e tem
ples of our Orde4, devoted as it is , to / the in

.Resolved, That in token of our appreciation
of the.personal worth and distudguished po
sition of our late President, as/well as a fee
ble expressiia of our deep :sc i irow at Ws un

near oiir Borough, along the Allegany or some
of its tributaries. And in this connection we
!have a word for the land-bolder.s in the
county. The Company about organizing in-
I tend to develope the country and land leased
j to them will be, s leased, for that purpose and
not simply for specalation. A great many
I leases tiara been taken throughout the county
by parties !who never intend to make use 6I
1 them in any other way than as paper neon
which! to speculate. The policy of such' a
course cannot be *oo severely condemned.
If land is leased it should be to parties
who will make some e'ort tc find oil. The
!Company desire land leased to secure the co-i
I;operation. of capitalists from abroad. it is
no more than fair if persons from abroad
invest their, money in this experime.nt that
they should be secured in•some way, and if a
certain number of acres are le (• , 7 th6y will
consider it security, and proceed with the

to -rising their rand on these conditions, for
the e reason that if oil is discovered
their MI re will be sufficient to make then:.
