At a special meeting of Lodge St. Andrew held in the Masonic Hall last night, the following motion was unanimously carried : —" That Lodge St. Andrew, No 432, S.C., does not at present see its way to move in the direction of a United Grand Lodge for New Zealand, but will remain adherent to the Grand Lodge of Scotland, and further regrets that the matter of the formation of a United Grand Lodge should have been gone about in so unmasonic and precipitate a way." At a meeting of Lodge Wairau, 663, S.C., the following resolution was carried : " That in the opinion of this lodge the time has not yet arrived for the establishment of a United Grand Lodge for New Zealand." The Devonport (Auckland) Masonic Lodge decided unanimously last night in favor of the Grand Lodge proposals.
