Ah, 7, SI & A. M.

/■* ARLY in the fall of 1863 it was proposed,
HHS by several brethren, to organize the second
Masonic Lodge, in Virginia. After several
months' consideration, the friends of the move-
ment, fourteen in number, met on the evening
of December 31, 1863, and signed a petition
to the Grand Master of California, for a dis-
pensation. The petition was recommended by
Virginia City Lodge, No. 164, Cal. Reg. ;
now Virginia Lodge, No. 7, Nev. Reg.

On January 22d, 1864, the M.\ W.\ Wm.
C. Belcher, G. \ M.\ of California, issued his

' [ 3 ] t,

dispensation, to open and hold a Lodge of F. &
A. M., naming therein Bros. Charles M.
Cornell as W.\ Master, Wm. A. M. Van
Bokkelen as S. \ Warden, and Columbus
Walker as J.\ Warden.

The first communication of the new Lodge
was holden on Tuesday, February 9th, 1864.
At the next annual Grand Communication of
the M.\ W.\ Grand Lodge of California,
October 13th, 5864, a Warrant was granted
to Bros. Geo. W.. Hopkins as W.\ Master,
Wm. A. M. Van Bokkelen as S.\ Warden,
and Columbus Walker as J.*. Warden, and
their successors in office, under the name and
number of Escurial Lodge, No. 171. The
Lodge was constituted, on October 28th, 1864,
by W.\ Bro. Robert H. Taylor, P.'. M.\ and
Act. Dep. G. \ M.\, according to the ancient
usages of the Craft.

At the stated communication in November

1864, at the suggestion of the W.\ M.*., Bro.
Geo. W. Hopkins, a committee, consisting of
the Bros. Hopkins, Van Bokkelen, and John
G. Bloomer, was appointed to confer with the
other Lodges in the State as to the expediency
of organizing an independent Grand Lodge.
At the stated communication in December, the
report of the committee and accompanying
resolutions in favor of organizing the Grand
Lodge of Nevada, were adopted; these reso-
lutions were subsequently adopted by six of the
eight Lodges then in the State. The Lodges
met in convention on January 19th, 1865,,
the Lodges surrendering their Warrants to the
Grand Lodge of California, receiving new ones
from the Grand Lodge of Nevada. Subse-
quently the Grand Lodge of California pre-
sented the Lodges with their original Warrants,
as mementos of their connections with that
jurisdiction.

Historical Sketch oj



In December, 1864, the two Lodges organ-
ized a joint Board of Relief, to consist of the
Masters and Wardens of both Lodges, agree-
ing to pay for its support twenty-five cents per
month for each M.\ M.\ on the roll, and five
dollars for each degree conferred. At the
present time only the degree money is collected
by the Board, the other being remitted until
the Board shall need it to meet its expendi-
tures. The Board is now clear of debt and
has

Loaned out at z\ percent., - - - $1455.10
In Treasury, - - - 127.93

Due from Lodges, - - - 75.00

Interest due, - 35-°°



Assets Dec. 1st, 1867, - - - $1693.03

At the stated communication, February 13,

1866, the Lodge By-Laws were amended so as

to abolish the fee for affiliation. This at the

time was considered of doubtful expediency, but

[ M

of it every Brother who voted for the amend-
ment should be proud : the experience of a few
months proved that it was a move in the right
direction. And so evident were its good effects
in reducing " the army of non-affiliates, " that
the Grand Lodge on September 18, 1867,
unanimously amended the Grand Constitution
so as to prohibit the collection of any fee for
affiliation.

In the year 1866, a committee was appointed
to procure and have properly arranged, jointly
with the other Masonic bodies, a suitable burial
ground. Eight acres of land have been pur-
chased, and a portion of it fenced and laid out.

Thus briefly have we sketched the prominent
landmarks in the history of Escurial Lodge,
during its short existence.

In the number of its members it now ranks
as second in the jurisdiction.
