He was elected to the office of vice-arch in January, 1888, and on the 18th July of the same year elected unopposed to the highest office which the lodge had power to bestow namely, arch - druid, In the fulfilment of the duties, and throughout the whole of his druidical career his conduot was marked with untiring energy and zeal, and his spare hours were devoted to promote the good and welfare of the Order. Our dear brother had two more nights to serve to complete his term of office as a past-arch whsn taken from our midßt, and I am sure you will agree with me when I say the lodge have lost a true, energetic, and devoted member. You are awaro that we have belonging to this lodge three of the sons of our late respected brother, and I trust that they will follow in the druidical footsteps of their late respected father and become prominent members of our ancient Order. Brothers, I will take this opportunity of thanking you all, also the officers and members of the various lodges of the Order, for their attendance at the funeral of our late dear brother."
