PAST GRAND COMMANDER.

The following resolution, presented by Right Eminent Sir Oliver L. McKay, was adopted unanimously by a rising vote of the Grand Commandery:

"Whereas, Eminent Sir James K.

"Resolved, That Eminent Sir James K. Moore be elected an Honorary Past Grand Commander of this Grand Jurisdiction, and that the Grand Recorder be directed to purchase a set of Past Grand Commander's shoulder straps and present the same to Sir Knight Moore with the compliments of the Grand Commandery.”

INSPECTOR OF COMMANDERIES.

Eminent Sir George B. Power presented the following resolution, which was, on motion, referred to the Finance Committee:

"Resolved, That the Grand Commander be authorized and empowered to appoint an Inspector, whose duties, under the direction of the Grand Commander, shall be to inspect each Commandery in the State at least once during the year, and to visit those Commanderies in need of help and encouragement as often as, in the judgment of the Grand Commander, may be necessary; that he be required to report from time to time to the Grand Commander as to the condition of the Commanderies and as to the results being obtained by the inspection. For his services the said Inspector shall receive the sum of $10.00 per day, and, in addition all, necessary expenses for the time actually engaged in the work.

"Resolved Further, That it is the sense of the Grand Commandery that an official visit from the Grand Commander to the Commanderies is helpful to them in their work, and the Grand Commandery expresses the hope that the Grand Commander will find the time to visit all of the Commanderies in the state, as often as, in his judgment it may be desirable, and that the actual expenses of the Grand Commander in making such official visits shall be paid out of the treasury of the Grand Commandery."

To the Grand Commandery:

We, your Finance Committee, to whom was referred the resolution introduced by Eminent Sir Knight George B. Power, in reference to the appointment of an Inspector of Commanderies and compensation for his services, recommend the adoption of said resolution.
