THE MASONIC GRAND LODGE.
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
WELLINGTON. July 6,
A suggestion is current in Masonic circles here that if the majority of the Otago lodges are favorable to the proposal that the installation of the first Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of New Zealand should take place in Dunedin duriDg the visit of His Excellency Lord Odslow to the New Zoaland Exhibition, it is believed that Lord Carrington, Governor and Grand Master of New South Wales, would attend to perform the ceremony, and that the attendance of Sir William Clarke (Grand Master of Victoria), and Lord Kintore (Past Grand Substitute Grand Master of Scotland, and Governor of South Australia), who will probably by that time also be Grand Master of South Australia, could be secured for such a great Masonic function. That the Grand Lodge will be established, with Lord Onslow as its first Grand Master, is regarded here as a matter of certainty. Sir F. Whitaker, Provincial Grand Master of the North Island under the Scotch Constitution, has appointed P.M. Bro. E. T. Gillon as Deputy Provincial Graad Master.
