The recent opening of a lodge in Wellington by the Grand Orient of France was mentioned, and a resolution was carried unanimously protesting against the invasion of New Zealand by a Foreign Masonic power, and strongly condemning those brethren who had joined the new lodge, A resolution was also passed declaring the French Orient Lodge irregular and unworthy of recognition, and that one month's grace be given to members either to retire or be struck off the roll of lodges holding allegiance to the Grand Lodge of New Zealand.
