s vote should be necessary for the election of new members. Andrew Adams was the first Master, Nathan Crane and Elijah Learned the first wardens. The petition for a charter was approved by Columbian Lodge of Boston, and was presented to the Grand Lodge on June 10 of the same year. After a trial of four months the name Aurora seems to have proved unsatisfactory, and the petition prayed for a charter under the name of Oriental Lodge. As this name had been preempted by another Massachusetts Lodge, it was finally decided to take the name Amicable, one which has been proved to be not unfitting. By this time six new members had been admitted, James Fillebrown, Joseph Ayres, Richard Bordman, Benjamin Grover, Samuel Cutler, and Benjamin Bowers; and one of the original signers, Ebenezer Watson, had dropped out. The ceremonies attendant upon the consecration of the lodge and the installation of its officers were held on St. John's Day, June 24, 1806, when the Grand Lodge attended, an orati
work, which is stronger for its organization and activity. The Order consists of the Lodge, Encampment, and Daughters of Rebekah, the last being adopted by the Grand Lodge of the United States for the use of ladies legally connected with subordinate lodges by male membership. Cambridge has six subordinate Lodges, two Encampments, and two Rebekah Lodges, all active, and supported by an earnest and enthusiastic membership numbering over two thousand. They are as follows:— New England Lodge, No. 4, instituted July 21, 1827, 274 members; Friendship Lodge, No. 20, instituted September 26, 1843, 365 members; Mount Auburn Lodge, No. 94, instituted October 15, 1845, 113 members; Cambridge Lodge, No. 13, instituted September 2, 1874, 240 members; Mount Sinai Lodge, No. 169, instituted September 23, 1874, 205 members; Dunster Lodge, No. 220, instituted July 11, 1893, 184 members; New England Encampment, No. 34, instituted October 3, 1865, 149 members; Charles River Encampment, No. 22,
Knights of Pythias. Eben W. Pike. St. Omer Lodge, No. 9, Knights of Pythias, received its charter April 11, 1884, and with a list of nearly 100 names entered upon the work of the order. For twelve years it has done a large amount of charitable work in this city, and to-day, with a membership of over 200, ranks among the first in the grand domain of Massachusetts. Recognizing as it does the universality of human brotherhood, and embracing the world within its jurisdiction, its fundamencultivation of friendship, charity, and benevolence. Nothing of a sectarian or political character has ever been permitted within its portals, and obedience to law and loyalty to government are its cardinal principles; with these in view, and with justice to all, no doubt can exist as to its true and good intentions. There can be found in the ranks of St. Omer Lodge men from all classes of life, and among its Past Chancellors are those who have held the highest office in the gift of the city.
