Female Honorary Freemasons.— [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 February 1868
Female Honorary Freemasons.— Recently there were very interesting ceremonies he'd at one of the Ma-onic Hails in New York, where the degree of the Eastern Star, or adoptive Masonry, was conferred upon more than 200wotnm, all of whom were either wives, widows, or daughters of Freemisons. Previous to the ceremony, Kobert S. Homes, P.O. M. of New York, referred, as a matter of regret, to the tact that the wives, widows, sisters and daughters of Masons had not heretofore been recognized among Masons, and hoped that hereafter the Grand Lodge of the State would use its influence with all other Lodges for the purpose of adopting fome general token through which these neglected members of the families of Masons might make themselves known all aver the world. The Rebellion not Ended.—We commend the following suggestion from the Philadelphia Item to the disorganizes of California : "We predict that the inso'ence of the Southern aiistocracy is only beginning, l'he next Presidential election wi...

FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE ELEVATOR. A few months ago wc informed some of our personal friends that wc were greatly embarrassed, and unless speedy relief was afforded we would be obliged to cease publishing this paper. We told them we required the sum of $250 to pay debts, which we bad incurred in our business, and something must be done to insure a continuance of the paper. They thereupon issued the following Circular, with the design of eliciting the co-operation of friends in the interior of this and adjacent States : To the Friends of "The Elevator." Dear Sir:—Having understood from Mr. P. A Bell that The Elevator is financially embarrassed, we appeal to the friends of progress among our people to aid in sustaining a good and efficient organ, such as The Elevator has proved to be.

A Response. In reference to the proposition by Mrs. D. D. Carter, that the ladies contribute a dollar each to sustain The Elevator, we ask, in another column, who will follow?

Mr. Editor : —Your appeal to the public to sustain The Elevator should never have been made, for the necessity for it should never have occurred ; but inasmuch as such is the lamentable fact, you should not have been partial in your applications, tor let me assure you the women have always felt an iuterest iu your paper. The ladies do uot neglect you as literary contributors, and I know they will not neglect you as financial contributors, when you make known that our mite is needed and acceptable. The communications of our venerable sister, "Semper Fidelia," are aloue worth the price of subscription ; and also our fairy sister " Waif" adds to the value of The Elevator....
