ANNUAL SESSION OF THE GRAND LODGE, 1.0.G.T.

[by telegraph.]

Wellington, To-clay. The 7th annual session of the Grand Lodge of New Zealand of the Independent Order of Good Templars was opened last night. There was a large number of representatives from all parts of the colony present. A deputation from the District Officers of the Rechabitcs presented an address of welcome to the Grand Lodge on their first visit to the North Island. The Report of the Grand Secretary showed an increase of two in the number of Lodges, but, notwithstanding this, the number of members had decreased by 5(>4, the total on the roll being 7,090. Six now lodges are in progress or being commenced, the charters having been issued since Nov. Ist. The Degree Temple showed the same number as for the previous year. A number of special sessions had been held on the west coast of the Middle Island, Nelson, Blenheim, and Wellington, which had been productive of great good. It was resolved that the Executive be recommended to continue the visitation of districts. The financial report showed the position to be fairly good. At eight o’clock this evening a testimonial is to be presented to Bro. J. W. Jago, P.G.W.O. T.
