WEALTHY NEW YORKER PLANS BIG LIBRARY

Quarters to Be Used by the Institute for Psychical Research

NEW YORK, Aug. 25.- Concealing his identity for the present, a wealthy
resident of New York has just volunteered to supply several thousand of
dollars for the purpose of leasing and equipping adequate quarters, including
a lecture room and library and complete laboratory, to be used by the New
York Institute for Physical Research. This statement is made by H. Spencer
Lewis, of 252 West I48th street, assistant editor of a magazine called Modern
Miracles, and an instructor in the Metropolitan Institute of Science.
"Our purpose," said Mr. Lewis, "is to submit all phenomena o f a so-called
supernatural order to the closest scientific scrutiny. We hope to develop
among our members some who will be capable o f hypnotic power and through
them to study and test every phase o f that subject. We shall invite spiritualist
'mediums' to give evidences o f the power they claim in our lecture hall and
under conditions which will eliminate entirely the possibility o f fraud.
Thorough scientific investigation o f psychical matters is our only aim. We do
not propose to endorse or advertise anybody."

Greatest Psychic Wonder o f 1906


By H. SPENCER LEWIS
(President of the New York Institute for Psychical Research.)

The year 1906 was one of the most successful for the advancement of
psychical research and study, more wonderful discoveries, revelations and
conclusions having been effected in this one year than have been recorded in
the annals of this science since the first "spirit-raps" were heard in this
country in 1848.
In response to the request from the Sunday World for an account of the
most remarkable psychic exhibition of the year, I will describe the
demonstration before the society by a young American Indian, who claimed
that in a trance he could communicate with the spirit of an Indian chief, and
also with the Great Spirit, and that this spirit would describe through him
the homes of those gathered in the room.
The medium did describe, accurately and in detail, the rooms o f six of those
present, one room being in England.
He also describe the appearance of a gentleman whom he had never seen,
and told where he was at the moment o f recital, which facts were afterward
verified to the minutest detail.
In this demonstration it was not possible for the medium to ever have seen
the rooms he described, and therefore there could have been no fraud.
This leaves but two explanations - that o f telepathy and that o f actual spirit
communication. O f course, those present knew their rooms, and telepathy was
possible, for the medium could have received, telepathically, the descriptions
of the rooms from the person present.
But granting this, we find that telepathy could not explain the method
whereby the medium described the room in which the gentleman before
mentioned was spending the evening, nor could it explain how the medium

was enabled to telt us just what this gentleman was doing for no one present
knew where the gentleman was, and certainly no one knew exactly what he
and the others with him might be doing. The medium was a stranger to all
present, and there could have been no collusion.
If telepathy can explain this demonstration then we must admit that
telepathy between strangers at a distance at any time and under any
conditions is possible. This is extending the limitations of telepathy to an
extreme, but even so, it may be the real hypothesis. This demonstration on the
whole was the most remarkable, o f its class, ever recorded by our society, or
perhaps by any other body of investigators.

OLDEST FRATERNAL
SOCIETY IN WORLD TO
HAVE BRANCH HERE
Ancient and Mystical Order of Rosaea Crucis to Have American Lodge Men and Women on Equal Footing - Cross Used Said to Antedate Christ
by 1,700 Years - Many Distinguished Members.
Would you like greater peace of mind, greater control of emotion, ability to
rise above the material conditions of life, capacity for greater physical and
mental recreation, a better understanding of life, a deeper insight into its
possibilities - in other words, to draw from life the best there is in it? You
would, of course, and so would your neighbor. Well, then, become members of
the Ancient and Mystical Order of Rosaea Crucis, which is now organizing an
American lodge.
The Rosaea Crucis is not to be confused with the Red Cross Society. There is
nothing charitable or religious about it, despite the fact that the cross is its
emblem. It is the "oldest fraternal and secret organization in the world," a
prospectus states, and - suffragists please note - the first organization known in
history where women were accepted on equal footing and were eligible to the
highest office.
It has had, and still has, some distinguished members, among whom might be
mentioned, according to the claims of the Rosicrucians, Napoleon, Henry II, of
England, King Louis the Pious, Lord Bulwer Lytton, and Lord Bacon, Dr.
Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller Institute, who is now at Lyons directing
surgical treatment for wounded French soldiers, and Marie Corelli, the novelist,
are members of European lodges, it is claimed. An ex-president of the United
States is also said to be a Rosicrucian.

Antedates Christ
Rosaea Crucis means rosy cross. The cross used by the Rosicrucians as a
symbol antedates Christ by 1,700 years, they claim. Where the arms of the cross

meet in the Rosicrucian symbol appears a half unfolded red rose. The symbol
signifies that through the cross the members of the order unfold as does the rose.
The family of Thotmis IV, founded the order and built the temple of Kamak
and other temples, and were instrumental in having stored in the pyramids and
other safe places the emblems and signs o f material sciences and
accomplishments. Realizing that some day knowledge might be wiped out, the
family of Thotmis decided to store in the pyramids philosophies and secrets
which could not be transcribed or otherwise indicated to perpetuate them for
"time eternal." Astrology, the Rosicrucians claim, was thus handed down
through the ages, finally becoming the science of astronomy.
The order is fraternal, like the Masons, which the Rosicrucians claim, sprang
from the order of Rosaea Crucis, the seventeenth degree of Masonry, it is
claimed being an admission of its debt tothe Rosicrucians. Outgrowths of the
Rosaea Crucis, it is stated, are the Knights of die Rosy Cross in England and the
Societe Rosicruciana in France.
Rosicrucians in the United States have been toying for half a century to obtain
the right to establish a lodge here, according to H. Spencer Lewis, American
foundation president, of 130 Post Avenue, who is also president of the New
York Institute of Psychical Research.

Jewels and Symbols.


"After fifty years of pleading, negotiating, and preparation, the supreme
authorities have granted the right to establish such a lodge," he said. "The
supreme consuls in Egypt and India designated Mrs. May Banks-Stacey, widow
of Colonel Stacey, U.S.A., to bring the jewels and symbols to this country. She
also has the rosary used by the family of Thotmis about 1,500 B.C. The chain is
made of skin, set with rubies, turquoises, amethysts, and other stones bearing
weird hieroglyphics."
Mr. Lewis explained that Mrs. Banks-Stacey was a lineal descendant on her
mother's side of Maty Stuart, and on her father's side of Cromwell. The
qualifications for membership, as he explained them are:

Age, over twenty-one years, belief in a Supreme Deity, good moral character
and habits, and belief in the philosophy of the Rosicrucians. No one can become
a member until he is invited, but one may apply for this privilege. The minute
one becomes a member he or she realizes what a wonderful thing the Rosaea
Crucis is, Mr. Lewis explained.
"When the initiates on entrance to the order pass through the threshold," he
said, "they have a most wonderful revelation of what can be done in the science
of spiritual and material things. They get their first convincing evidence o f the
Rosicrucian control of great natural phenomena.
"They must take an oath to hold sacred above all other tilings the innermost
secrets and teachings of the order. They pledge themselves to accomplish at
least one thing for the betterment of mankind before they die. It is a matter of
mortal life and immortal life for them to reveal secrets. To break the pledge of
the order invites all the disaster of life and condemns the soul and innermost
man to all punishment hereafter."

No Oaths in Court.
The Rosicrucians never take an oath in court. They make the sign of the
cross. They don't believe in heaven or hell, as "Billy" Sunday expounds it. They
believe with certain modifications in the theory of reincarnation. They have a
marriage ceremony which is performed previous to the civil ceremony, a
christening and funeral service of their own, said to be very impressive and
beautiful.
The lodges hold monthly meetings at which the officers wear robes. The
dues are nominal, the "great expenses of the order being furnished in an
unknown and unusual manner." The question of finances never gives the lodges
any concern, Mr. Lewis said. There are not sick benefits or insurance, but the
members see to it that no one of their fellows is ever in want.
"Any one who doubts that Rosicruciana is not well founded," said Mr. Lewis
in conclusion, "should go up to the Astor Library, there are thirty books on the
subject there and a catalogue of some 360 books published in nine languages.
There are also more than 300 manuscripts in the public libraries. There are
between 5,000,000 and 6,000,000 members of the order."

The first public announcement of the plans for the American Order appeared
The Globe of February 24th 1915, exclusively by special arrangements.
The Globe was a newspaper published in New York City.

Why the Rosaecrucians Came to New York


Prophecies Dating Back 1,500 Years Before the Wise Men o f the East Followed
the Star to Bethlehem Are Now Fulfilled in the Advent o f This Ancient Mystic
Order to "The Land Where the Eagle Spreads Its Wings."
The symbols on this page are copyrighted, 1915, by "The American Rosae Crucis."
By Charles W. Wood

THE Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis has come to America. It Is the
most ancient and most mystical o f all orders; so ancient that the encyclopedists
have never been able to trace its origin, and so mystical that even the mystics o f
other cults have never been able to divine its meaning. Every one has heard o f
Rosaecrucianism. Few have any conception o f what it stands for. Lexicon makers
have disputed about the spelling o f the word. But now the thing itself,
Roseacrucianism, is here. And it is here to direct the course o f America during the
next five wonderful years; to point out the course written in the stars in the dawn o f
civilization and interpreted by the Wise Men o f the East years before their
successors followed the Star to Bethlehem.
THERE was no air o f mysticism about the rooms at No. 80 Fifth Avenue, where
I talked with the young Grand Master General o f the long-looked-for American
Grand Lodge. But the story he unfolded was one that brought the hearer back to
the earliest councils of the Egyptian pharaohs, and threw about our whole modem
civilization the glamour o f the cryptic past.
H. Spencer Lewis is the American Grand Master General, or Imperator. He
received his commission eight years ago from the Supreme Council o f the World,
through the Grand Lodge of France, to establish the order in America. This
Supreme Council is the great autocratic authority of Rosaecrucianism. Its very
membership is secret and it enforces its dicta in ways that mystify even the
Illuminati. With his commission Mr. Lewis received orders not to begin the work
until 1916. He was then only twenty-five years old, but had already become one of
the Twelfth Degree Illuminati in Toulouse. His previous life had been a
preparation for this commission. He is known as a student of psychical research

and has aided in exposing many of the so-called spiritualistic frauds.


"Roseacrucianism is true mysticism," he told me. "It is not a religion. It has
nothing in common with theosophy or Hindu and Yogi philosophy, and has no
connection with the new thought movement, spiritualism or mentalism. We call it,
rightly, the Alpha and Omega of all learning. It is a philosophy, a science, an art
and a secret - all o f these, inseparable and one."
"It could not be established here until the year 3268," he added. "That year was
fixed in the stars. It was read by Hermes 1,300 years before Christ; but the secret
was kept, even from Rosaecrucians, until the time of fulfillment. There have been
many earnest attempts to found the order here before. The enthusiastic
propagandists themselves did not know why permission was withheld. Some of
them have founded Rosaecrucian societies, clubs and fellowships. But you will
note that none of these have used the name of the order or its official emblems.
That could not be done until the year 3268.
The year 3268? Yes, that is the present year, according to the Rosaecrucian
calendar. March 21 is the Rosaecrucian New Year. It begins at 1.06 A. M.
Reckoning according to our present calendar, it was in the week o f March 28 to
April 4,1489 B. C., when Thutmose III., Ruler o f Egypt, and his little group of
advanced thinkers, organized the first Council o f the order out o f the class in
philosophy, which had been meeting in the royal chambers and represented the
highest learning of the world. There were twelve in the group, nine men and three
women. There are twelve degrees in Rosaecrucianism. The figures 9 and 3 have
ever since been recognized as mystic symbols. The name o f the order was not
adopted at once, but the principles, rules and modes o f procedure outlined by
Thutmose have come down, it is claimed, practically unchanged in the ritual o f all
Roseacrucian lodges. Thutmose erected two obelisks outside the Temple of
Kamak, where the order met.
According to a tradition o f the order one o f these obelisks was to stand some day
in the 'Land where the Eagle spreads its wings." It does. It stands in Central Park,
in the metropolis o f the world, full o f inscriptions meaningful to Rosaecrucians.
How was America associated with the eagle twenty-eight centuries before
Columbus? "I can only say that it was," said Mr. Lewis. Then he produced a map,

a map of the world showing the Roseacrucian symbols of an eagle, a pyramid and
a black bird (the "vulture") covering the area of the United States. "This map," he
said, "was taken from the pyramid of Cheops and from the oldest Rosaecrucian
tablets. The eagle and the pyramid were adopted in due time by the new
government at Washington as emblems of the American Republic. Thousands of
your readers will understand the significance of the vulture."
According to Mr. Lewis, Rosaecrucianism has had a continuous history from the
day of its birth. And there is no reason, he says, why this outward history should be
withheld from the world. The Supreme Council has permitted him to publish the
chronicle and it will appear in the near future. In this history he states that
Freemasonry is only an off shoot of Rosaecrucianism, resulting from a visit of an
earnest young seeker after truth named Saloman, or Solomon, to the Masters in
Egypt 2,000 years ago.
No one knows how many members of the order are in America today. About two
hundred and fifty have been permitted to "cross the threshold" since Mr. Lewis
received his commission; but aside from these there is a small army o f initiates
especially prepared for the great work of the next few years in the European and
Oriental lodges. So far they do not know each other, and they do not know what
particular work will be assigned to them. But they are waiting for orders from the
Supreme Council of the World and all are confident that the destiny o f America is
wrapped up with the Rose and Cross. With Mr. Lewis's commission as Grand
Master General came official seals and symbols o f authority. Then, through
devious sources, which he says were unknown even to the Grand Master, came
some treasured jewels of the order. Most treasured o f all was the original
SCARAB of Thutmose III, used by the ancient founder to impress his cartouche
upon his royal decrees. This cartouche was adopted as the first seal o f the order
and the SCARAB was used for hundreds of years in Egypt by the Supreme
Masters who succeeded him. The obelisk in Central Park bears this cartouche of
Thutmose. The presence of the original Scarab in the hands of the Master o f the
New World is taken to symbolize the passing of the founder's spirit from Egypt to
America.
ROSAECRUCIANS have been anticipating the great change in America for
centuries," said Royle Thurston, summarizing the forecast for the American Rosae

Crucis, official magazine of the Order, published at No. 80 Fifth Avenue. "It was
decreed that beginning with the year 1916 these States should come under the
Uranian influence of the Spirit. Gradually the change has occurred and more
visible becomes the influence in all the affairs o f life. "We find Thursday
becoming the day of choice, subconsciously, for the starting and accomplishing of
important things. In even minute matters we find the number 7 figuring
conspicuously. We find the CROSS in various forms being adopted in place of
more decorative or more representative symbols. We note that the mind of the
nation inquiries rather o f the Laws and Causes o f things than o f results. We see the
desire for peace and harmony supplanting the 'glories' o f war and strife. The inner
desire for religious study, for attunement with the Infinite and a more intimate
acquaintance with God and the Divine Laws o f Love, Peace, Power and
Knowledge is more manifest than ever before.

WHAT ROSAECRUCIANISM IS
By a Rosaecrucian.
ROSAECRUCIANISM is the Alpha and Omega of all learning, a philosophy, a
science, an art and a secret - all of these, inseparable and one.
It teaches the world's most profound secrets. It explains life and its phenomena; it
makes plain biology and ontology; it reveals life and death in a different light than
that generally understood. It deals as comprehensively with cosmogony, astrology
(the original science of astronomy as first taught by Rosaecrucians) and geology as
with metallurgy, medicine, art and philosophy.
It reveals the life we have lived and the life we shall live as plainly as the life we
are living. It takes from science in all its branches the great mysteries which have
defied solution by the lay mind and the uninitiated.
It makes of all members real brothers and sisters; it makes the humble mechanic
or artisan in America the equal, the peer, of the most powerful ruler in Europe, not
by humiliation, but by the true law of equality.

THE WORLD, New York, Sunday, July 2, 1916


VISITING THE MYSTIC TEMPLE WHERE IMPERATOR LEWIS
(FORMERLY OF P.S. 16) PERFORMED AS AN ALCHEMIST.
As the June convocation o f the supreme Council of the Ancient and Mystical
Order Rosae Crucis, held in the back parlor o f the dwelling at No. 70 West Eightyseventh Street, which is fitted up as a temple. H. Spencer Lewis. Imperator o f the
Order, performed the mystical transmutation ceremony. He placed fifteen
ingredients in a crucible, stirred them with his fingers and at the end o f eighteen
minutes withdrew a bit o f yellow metal. Everybody present was profoundly
impressed, believing he had produced a piece o f gold.
By Charles Welton
It will surprise some o f the boys who were in Principal John Burke's graduating
class in P S. 16a dozen or so years ago to learn that "Fat" Lewis, as some o f them
used to call him, is now a high muck-a-muck in the occult business and a Grand
Master General and Imperator. It may also surprise some o f the people who ten
years ago worked with Lew is in the Psychic Investigating League and helped him
round up spooks and experiment with hypnotism and telepathy.
But there's no going back o f the words. Lew is is in the mystic line for fair. He
says he isn't out to make money and has nothing to sell.
There are strange goings-on at N o .70 west Eighty-seventh Street - goings-on full
o f mysticism and the pungent aroma o f Eastern spices. Students o f the occult, clad
in the robes o f the Rosaecrucian Order, are as busy as an alarm o'clock trying to get
results in science, electricity and other things by follow ing wheresoever the
symbols o f the ancients direct
Lewis is a short person, with a big, round head, a big round face, a big, round
body and a very stouts arms and legs. He is thirty-three years old and talks
regular N e w York. His office is in the front parlor. He and Thor Kiimalehto,
Secretary General, sit back to hack at rolltop desks, Kiimalehto is a printer by
trade, Lew is used to go lo him with an occasional job and in that way they became
acquainted
I called at the temple on Wednesday. Mr.Roth, who is a student o f hieroglyphics,

and Mr. Callahan, who once explored an Egyptian tomb with me, went along.
T w o glad hands were extended to us.
"W ill you be good enough, Mr. Lewis," I asked, "to tell us just how you do the
alchemy stunt by which you transmute odds and ends into gold?"
"Stunt is good," replied the Imperator. "N o w , to begin remember w e may be nuts
or bugs, but w e don't pretend to have wings growing on our shoulders. On the
night o f our convocation, which was attended by Torch-bearer and the Vestal
Virgin, the twelve other officers and others o f the advanced order to the number o f
thirty seven, 1 delivered an address saying that for the first time in America I would
demonstrate the secret process o f transmutation.
"For hundreds o f years the Elder Brothers o f our order in Egypt worked at their
crucibles and wrestled with the problems o f alchemy in an attempt to apply the
fundamental laws o f our philosophy and science. A t last they succeeded in
transmutation on the material plane. The members o f the Fourth Degree being the
most advanced, I felt the call to make the demonstration for the first time in this
country.
"1 had directed each o f fifteen members to bring a certain ingredient, and I may
say that these ingredients were such as might be found in any kitchen - say,
saleratus, ginger, etc., but these were not among them. Salt was one. A rose in full
bloom was another, although you would not pick a rose in a kitchen.
"Then w e had a bottle full o f distilled water and a cube o f zinc. As accessories,
we were provided with a crucible, fire and a pair o f pinchers - all the necessary
outfit.
"W ell, when everything was ready 1 asked the fifteen brothers and sisters to come
forward with their offerings. N o one knew what the others had. The various
ingredients were plated in the crucible with the lump o f zinc, which had been
tested with nitric acid and carefully weighted. This I stirred with my fingers for
several minutes and I might add that I scorched my fingers in the process. At the
proper moment 1 stopped stirring, and with a pair o f pincers took from the crucible
a bit of ye llo w metal - the transmuted metal which stood the acid test and was
found to be a trifle heavier than the zinc. Every one present saw it. 1 might add that
there is no money in making gold that way. You get only a little bit for
all your pains."

"Gold transmuted

from other

metals," said Lewis, making a statement instead o f

a reply, "is the purest o f gold. N o w about the order. It was established way back in
the dynasty o f Thutmose III, who was the husband o f Isis. The obelisk in Central
Park, one o f the two erected in Egypt by Thutmose III, and intended to stand some
day in 'the country where the eagle spreads its wings, bears the cartouche or seal o f
the order as well as many other authentic and Rosaecrucian signs.
I told Lewis that, while I was not familiar with all the symbols and cartoons on
the obelisk, his word that they were there was good enough for me.
"When I went to Toulouse, France, in 1909 to secure permission to found the
order in this country, I was informed that it soul be not until 1915, and so I waited
and studied and fitted m y self for the work, and on April 1, 1915, the charter was
drawn up and signed, and the order took its place in the country where the
eagle spreads its wings."
A t my suggestion w e were permitted to enter the temple proper, which is the
third room back on the parlor floor The room was heavily curtained. The crucible
stands in front o f the Imperator's desk. A n electric bulb is inside the bowl, and
when the current is turned on lights o f several colors show. The crucible has a
circular pan around its edge.
This was filled with what looked like powdered dried leaves.
Kiimalehto stepped into a closet, and, returning with a bottle, pour some o f its
contents into the pan and touched a match to it. Immediately the temple was
filled with an odor like a combination o f cayenne pepper, myrrh, sweet marjoram,
terebinth and other things.
The thick smoke rose from the pan, spread out over our heads and formed in a
thin cloud which floated to the ceiling and dispelled some o f the darkness.
There was then disclosed the presence o f a very tall and straight figure, garbed
from neck to heels in a bright red garment and topped with a turban. He stood at
the curtained window before an electrician's desk.
'M a y 1 ask what you are doing " 1 inquired, and the figure turned and looked at
me through big. round glasses

I asked his name and he said he was Harry Koenig, a theatrical electrician. He
used to work at Cohan's Theatre and also at the Winter Garden, but was out of
a jo b at present.
W hile he was telling me these things the faint click o f the instrument could be
heard.
"W e do not do any sending here," said Koenig, "but we cut in and pick up bits o f
news. It is rather dull to-day."
W hile Roth and Callahan were breathing the fumes o f the burning incense at the
other end o f the room I slipped the wireless receivers over my ears. Koenig
was right. It was a dull day.
The instrument was not adjusted properly, so student K o en ig turned a
thumbscrew on a keyboard arrangement and, what to my untrained ears, sounded
like a High School o f Commerce boy communicating a baseball result to a friend
in a Manual Training, clicked down the wire
K oen ig was not the only student at his task. There is an average o f dozen men
and women - at work. It isn't absolutely necessary that they all wear robes, but
most o f them do. The different degrees have different robes - some red and others
blue or white.
The chemical laboratory is just back o f the temple, in what used to be the butler's
pantry before the Imperator moved in. The vibration and philosophy departments
are in another part o f the building.
Getting back to that yellow bil o f metal that the Imperator said he had
transmuted, it can be said with authority that all suggestions that it might be sent to
the laboratory o f Columbia University for examination or assayed will be turned
down The metal will be kept in the Eighty seventh Street Temple as a prized jew el
o f the order.
The Imperator will not again give a demonstration o f transmutation. Following
the long established custom, the fifteen members who delivered the raw material to
him are to keep their individual shares o f the secret. N o one individual knows the

mixture, but collectively they own the formula. In the event o f the passing o f the
Imperator the fifteen may come together three years thereafter and repeat the
ceremony.
Probably the next function o f real importance in the temple will be the
christening o f little Earle Cromwell Lewis. The date o f this ceremony has not been
fixed, but the Grand Lodge will be present. Earle Cromwell is the youngest o f the
Imperator's three children.

F ifty Members of Oldest Mystic


Organization in World A r
rive at Moorcroft.
MOORCROFT, WYO., Jan. 13.
! "The Rosicrucians are planning to in
vade and colonize northeastern Wyo
ming.
It sounds like a war bulletin, but it i
isn't. It merely means that about,
fifty members of the order of Rosicrucis, said by members to be the |
oldest secret mystic organization in
the world, have arrived here as the !
advance guard of a large body o f ,
colonists.
They are taking advantage of the
640-acre homestead law to eftabUA
themselves in this section of the
country. Practical co-operative meth
ods will be followed in the develop
ment of the colony.
The ancient and mystic order is j
said to have been established in j
Egypt in the reign of Thotmos, 1540 I
B. C., and devoted to the study of
philosophy, science and the arts, as
well as religion. It has a member-;
ship of 6,000,000, including some of
the worlds master minds, such as
Lord Bacon and Bulwer Lytton. It
claims to possess scicntiJic knowledge
which is revealed only to members, i

1 forced to bury in alleged treatises on alch en y tbe golden wisdom. Perhaps the
best argument in favor of the Baconian
authorship of Shakespeares writings lies
in the suggestion that Bacon's promin
ence forbade his publicly fathering tbe
works that would mark him as an enemy
to the political s y s t e m s of the times, so
that be foisted them on an obscure player,
just as in his Rosicrucian membership he
exchanged opinions with others of the
cult that could not h a v e been expressed
openly.

H ester S c h o o l
Using Hester School as an example,
the spirit of appreciation of schools
and their advantages, which has made
California an outstanding Stale In
the educational world, is the subject
of the leading article published In the
current number of The Mystic T ri
angle. official organ of the Roslcruclan order.
T he article, entitled The Im perator's Monthly Message," w ritten by
Dr. H. Spencer Lewis, Imperator of
the order, describes the custom m ain
tained a t Hester School of keeping
fresh flowers in a vase under the
picture of M. R. Tracc, former prin
cipal. This spirit of appreciation of
the services and friendship of a for
mer teacher, which persists after he
Is dead, Is symbolic of the attitude
of mind of California towards educa
tion, Dr. Lewis points out.
PRAISES SPIRIT

I t Is th e spirit of California th a t
creates this attitude of mind, and
when created In tho lives of children
It will last thew hole Life through,"
Dr. Lewis writes.
Another article in the same m aga
zine discusses the widespread unfav
orable publicity which the Santa
Clara Valley received In connection
with tho flood Ir. the Banta Clara
River Basin Valley In Southern Cali
fornia.
Tha Mystic Triangle" is widely
circulated among members of tho
Rosicruclun order who are scattered
throughout the United States. Pub
lication in the magazine of the true
facts in th e case will be of value In
correcting the wrong Impression given
by misleading Southern California
publicity, it is pointed out today by
the local Chamber of Commerce,

DETECTIVES RAID A MYSTICAL CULT

H. Spencer Lewis, Leader of Rosaecrucians, Arrested


Lily Langtry Home.
He is Said Also to Have Suggested Means of Evading
Draft.

Three score or more men and women of varying ages


-the majority of the men within the draft age- were
seated last night in parallel rows in a room on an
upper floor of what was the old Lily Langtry home, and
before that the Josie Mansfield residence, at 361 West
Twenty-third street.
Any one who had ever been received in that room
when the Jersey Lily was the chatelaine and who was
there last night would have been impressed with the
changes that have taken place since. They have been
peculiarly impressed with the furnishings that were in
evidence last night when Detective Joseph Russo and
four or five other men from the District Attorney's
office entered. But more about the detectives later.
About 9 o'clock sixty or seventy men and women were
assembled in what was once Mrs. Langtry's drawing
room. From the front the old place would give the
impression of a well appointed private residence or
club. The windows were shaded and the iron fence that
fronts the place had just received a new coat of
paint. It was almost a place of distinction and
soldiers and sailors who were strangers in New York
looked at it while passing and inquired of one another
what it was. An inconspicuous group of four or five men
at a convenient corner were also watching the place,
but were not so ignorant of its character.
Scene in Drawing Room
Inside, in the drawing room, were assembled the
members of the New York branch of the so-called
American Rosicrucians. A feeble light from three
candles on a triangular altar in the centre of the room
was the only illumination. On a raised dais at one
end, clad in all the robes of his office as grand
master and imperator of the order in America, Brother
H. Spencer Lewis, F.R.C., whatever that means, was
giving the regular weekly lecture to the members.
At the other end of the room in the somber setting

of a cheap black screen stood a five foot wooden


cross, with a wreath of roses at its base. The
furnishings were of the cheapest, and the floor was
uncovered except for a layer of dust. An unprotected
heating flue gaped in the middle of the floor; plaster
was hanging from the walls and ceiling, and the desk
from which the Grand Imperator was delivering his
lecture on the alchemy of life was of the cheapest
unvarnished pine.
Across the entrance to the room that once boasted
of double sliding doors there hung a cheap orange
colored curtain, through which the light from the
three candles softly filtered to the hall without.
Downstairs one or two members, to whom the ceremony in
the room above was no mystery, occupied desks and were
busy going through card index and classifying
applications for membership.
Then the officers came and in a moment the whole
place was in a tumult. Detective Russo with his aids
entered and were on the top floor before the
bewildered Rosecrucians in the business office knew
what was coming off. A man was placed at the door, and
Detective Russo, thrusting aside the cheap orange
colored curtains, stepped into the dimly lighted lodge
room, walked to the dais and announced to the
assembled members that everybody in the room was under
arrest.
The Imperator attempted to expostulate but was told
to keep quiet and prepare to go to headquarters. He
quickly divested himself of his robes of office while
his followers wondered what is was all about and while
other detectives went to phone for a patrol wagon.
Lights Show Queer Scene
The Grand Imperator was in the midst of an
interpretation and delineation of some of the occult
mysteries in the unraveling of which he is regarded by
his followers as a seer, when he was so rudely
interrupted. When the lights went up a queer scene
greeted the officers' eyes. The assembled men and
women who had been absorbing the words of wisdom from
the lips of the seer presented and odd picture in the
dilapidated room, that was not only shorn of its once
elaborate furnishings, but which showed unmistakable
evidences of long neglect.
Most of the people in the room were of German,
Scandinavian or Russian extraction. Most of the men
were within the draft age, although there were several
older ones in the group. Several of the women were
well dressed and gave evidence of education and

culture. Some of them replied to the questions of the


detectives in an unmistakable foreign accent. But all
of them expressed the greatest concern in what was to
befall the Grand Imperator.
After the detectives had questioned them and
served several with subpoenas two or three went to
Police Headquarters to await the arrival of Lewis.
Others went to a nearby restaurant to await
developments. Meantime with the appearance of a police
patrol wagon a crowd of several thousand gathered in
Twenty-third street curious to know whether it was
Assistant District Attorney Jim Smith instituting a
Monday night raid by way of change, or what kind of an
affair was being staged.
Bond Fraud Charged
The raid followed information that for several
weeks has had the attention of the District Attorney's
interest in the case comes through the allegation that
Lewis and his associates in the so-called American
Rosae Crucis were selling fraudulent 6 per cent gold
bonds.
The interest of the Federal authorities is in the
allegation that Lewis and his associates were
soliciting membership in the order on the
representation that such membership automatically
exempted men from the draft and gave them a legitimate
right to profess conscientious scruples against war.
The interest of the Masonic officials was aroused by
the representations of Lewis that he was a Mason.
Lewis is not a Mason. But the first question he
asked Detective Russo when he appeared on the scene
last night was, "Are you a Mason?"
According to the story of the career of Lewis and
his attempt to organize his American Rosae Crucis, as
it was told to a reporter for THE SUN last night, the
movement has made headway. There have been several
branches of the so-called order established in Western
cities, but through the instrumentality of men who
were watching his movements attempts in other places
failed.
In New York City the affairs of the cult seemed to
reach a crisis last Friday night. A.B.Brassard,
Lewiss former secretary, and the man who finally gave
the District Attorney the information on which he
acted last night, became suspicious of the genuineness
of the 6 percent bonds that Lewis sold to prospective
members.
Brassard and some of his fellow members went to the
Twenty-third street headquarters Friday night and

accused Lewis in the presence of several other members


of making suggestions by which men of draft age could
get exemption. Brassard's signature appears on some of
the bonds that Lewis sold. On Friday night, according
to the story, he accused Lewis of certain
irregularities, including the violation of another
Federal statute.
Lewis Asked for Proof
It is said that Lewis invited Brassard to return on
Saturday night with proof of the charges he made.
Brassard accepted the invitation, and it is said,
presented Lewis with documentary proof of the alleged
irregularities and demanded his withdrawal as head of
the Rosaecrucian order, whereupon ...carding to
Brassard's story. Lewis tore the documents up and
challenged Brassard to go ahead if he wanted to in the
face of what Lewis thought was destroyed evidence.
Brassard claims to have kept originals of the
documents in question and to have handed Lewis only
copies.
Another failure of the case, and the one that is
most interesting the Federal authorities, is the
statement that at a recent meeting of the members of
the organization Lewis is said to have addressed his
disciples as follows:
"I hold in my hand a letter from president Wilson
guaranteeing exemption from the draft to members of
the Rosaecrucian Order in America."
At the headquarters of Local Board 158, where it
was said certain of Lewis's followers had claimed
exemption on the ground of membership in the order,
officials were not able to trace the records of any
such cases without the names although the three
members of the board said they recollected that such
claims had been advanced.
Initiation Fee and Dues
Apart from the sale of bonds, one of which a
former member of the organization showed to a SUN
reporter last night declaring at the same time that
she paid $100 for it and to which was attached a
receipt signed by one L. Lawrence, as secretary of the
organization, new members were required to pay an
initiation fee of $5 or $10 and member dues of $1.
The organization is also said to have published a
secret paper called the "Cromaat," the letters of
which backwards are the first letters of the title the
cult has assumed - The Ancient and Mystical Order (of)
Rosae Crucis. Another monthly magazine called "The

American Rosae Crucis," carries on the first page the


names of a number of associate editors in various
parts of the world. These, it is represented, make up
the Supreme World Council of the order.
Among the dozen or more are such names as these:
Emanuel S. Camilleri, Upper Egypt; Prof. C. Magala
Desa, Bombay; Mohamed Ismail, I.G.O.H., Ceylon; Sir N.
Irnathellickerjo Lemindar, Bengal; Lady Brooks,
Shangai, China; Sir William Samuel Grant, Natal, East
Africa; Lady Florence Burgess, London, England;
Raynaud E. de Belcastle-Ligne, Toulouse, France, and
several others.
A more definite address is not given in the copy of
the magazine, but THE SUN reporter yesterday saw a
dozen of more such letters that had been sent to
addresses furnished by a former member of Lewis's
organization, all of which came back with the notation
"No such person known," or "No such address."

GRAND IMPERATOR GRIEVED AT ARREST
SPENT NIGHT IN A CELL
Cult Leader asserts Purpose of Organization Had No Taint of Money Getting.
Half a dozen detectives attached to the District: Attorney's office were examining
effects, meaning sateen sashes, robes, and other regalia - taken in the raid of the
headquarters of the so- called American Order of the Rosae Crucis.
While they were still going over the papers, books and other paraphernalia of
various kinds collected in the raid that was described exclusively in THE SUN
yesterday, H. Spencer Lewis, who had been variously described as the main works,
the grand imperator, the most perfect master profundis and illustrious brother of
the illuminati of the world, was explaining THE SUN that his arrest, detention and
examination taken altogether comprised one of the greatest outrages ever
perpetrated upon a real and regular Rosae Crucian.
Grand Imperator Lewis was arrested on Monday night in a spectacular raid on
the headquarters of his organization in the old Lily Langtry house at 361 West
Twenty-third street. Two or three dozen of his followers tried to get bail, but the
Grand Imperator had to spend the night in a cell.

Gold Bonds Figure in Charge


Lewis was arraigned yesterday in Jefferson Market Court before Magistrate Blau
on a short affidavit sworn to by Detective-Lieutenant Joseph Russo, alleging
suspicion of larceny of money through the sale of bonds of the so-called American
Order of the Rosae Crucis. Lewis was later released under $5,000 for examination
to-morrow.
Lewis gave his name as Harvey S. Lewis, although he is known among the
members of his cult as H. Spencer Lewis. The charge against him is based on
statements of Miss Elizabeth Meeker, of 70 Fifth Avenue, who at one time was a

member of Lewis' organization, and who, when the financial affairs of the
so-called order were somewhat strained, declares that she handed over a hundreddollar bill, subsequently receiving one of the 6 per cent gold bonds of the Ancient
Mystic Order of Rosae Crucis.
Miss Meeker explained yesterday that her contribution had been given without
solicitation in October of 1916, that she received the bond with a receipt for the
money paid, and that she had also received $6 interest. She admitted, however, that
after attending several meetings of the organization she felt compelled to withdraw
as a member.
From his home in Flushing last night Lewis told a reporter for THE SUN that at
no time had his organization - the Ancient and Mystical Order of the Rosae Crucis
- ever claimed to be operating as a branch of the Rosae Crucis organization in
France. "We have never claimed to hold any warrant, charter, patent or authority
from any foreign country," he said over the telephone.

Studies of the Occult


The allegations against Lewis are that he has disposed of several thousand
dollars' worth of bonds upon the representation that his organization was a
recognized branch of a world-wide institution devoted to studies of the occult.
Among the papers seized in Lewis' desk on Monday night is a piece of parchment
headed "Pronunziamento R.F.R.C. No. 987,601" The document is adorned with a
number of crude seals, dated Toulouse, France, September 20,1916, and signed by
one Jean Jordain. After the signature follow a series of hieroglyphics. In the body
of the document addressed to Le Secretaire General, Thor Kiimalehto, appears the
announcement that a separate jurisdiction of the Rosae Crucis has been established
in America under the supreme Pontiff High Ancient Shekah El Moria Ra of
Memphis and that the official seal is being forwarded to the Most Perfect Master
Profundis H. Spencer Lewis at New York.
In the February, 1916, number of the American Rosae Crucis, which is
described on the first page as a monthly magazine devoted to science, philosophy
and religion, a picture of Lewis in his robes of office appears, and in reference to
him is this statement:
"But in 1909 our Master journeyed to France and England to complete his
preparation for the Rosaecrucian work - which always seemed to be his goal - and

he was given several honors and titles by the French R.C. order, by agreement with
the supreme council in France and Egypt the permission, long sought by scientists
and earnest philosophical students was given unto our Master to establish the R. C.
Order in America in the year 1915."
When he was arraigned in court yesterday Mark Ellison, counsel for Lewis,
declared that the District Attorney had produced no proof to show that Lewis ever
received a dollar in cash for the bonds he is alleged to have sold.

W om an Initiate E xposes W eird R ites o f the R osicrucians


Fearsome Oaths and Exhibitions of Magic Described as Chief Features in
Ceremony of Induction
Member Who Resigned Tells of Attempts to Make Her Pay Penalty for
Withdrawing From the Order
In the general sad indifference to the most recent computation of vril the
coming force, and to the latest astronomical and astrological data from Mount
Ecclesia there are persons in New York who are not aware that many branches of
the Rosicrucian Society exist in America. H. Spencer Lewis, F.R.C., grand master
general and imperator of the Rosaecrucian (note the spelling), shares this ignorance
with them, or alms to, for he says in his history of the order in America:
"While in the United, States there is an array of organizations all purporting to
be true Rosaecrucians, there is in truth but one true order, the original and perfect
Rosaecrucian order, which is known by one only name, 'The Ancient and Mystical
Order Rosae Crucis,' whose universal and worldwide symbol is the triangle with
the point downward.'
Another statement by Founder Lewis will surprise a good many persons who
thought they knew all about Rosicrucianism in this country. It is that the American
society dates back from 1915. He made a misreading o f his original instructions
from the Initiates, and when in 1913 he called upon the Society for Psychical
Research to help him form a lodge here of the Rosy Cross he met with
indifference. It could not be otherwise, for the adepts had retarded the date to 1915.
In the early part of that year, with the assistance of Superior Secretary-General
Thor Kiimalehto and when "the moon was in Sagittarius," armed with charter and
"black book," Founder Lewis called together a little band of nine men and women
to form a committee to originate a Supreme Council for America.

I Growth of the Organization.


The preliminary work went forward steadily. In March fifty persons had taken
the "preliminary oath in the official Black Book. On April 1 thirty of the most
active workers met at a proposed lodge room in Seventh avenue and there and then

they constituted themselves the first true Rosicrucian convention of the order ever
held in the temple to America.
"Since then," glowingly reports Founder Lewis, "the order has grown amazingly.
There are now associated with us hundred of merchants, land owners, newspaper
editors, Government officials, physicians, surgeons, lawyers, scientists,
professional men and women, artists, artisans, laborers at little trades, all working
for a common good and meeting on a common level."
At once the sheep were separated from the goats, and societies which had gained
notoriety as being lodges, &c., of the Rosaecrucians were asked to give an account
of themselves. Many of them did so and disclaimed the intention of representing
officially the great secret order. One of these was Max Heindel, a writer on mystic
subjects. He explained that he had, indeed, founded the "Rosicrucian Fellowship,"
but it made no pretension to temporal power. Mrs. Marie Russak also explained the
meaning and powers of her "Temple of the Rosy Cross."
With the Rosicrucian factory of Dr. Clymer, at Allentown, Pa., the American
authorized society had more trouble. From this printing centre books went forth
broadcast, among them one called "A Secret Book Giving the First Forty-nine
Degrees of the Illuminati of the Rosicrucian Order." This book sold for $10. But
any connection between Dr. Clymer and the true Rosaecrucians was finally
disproved.
What is a Rosaecrucian? Here is Dr. Lewis's answer:
"A Rosaecrucian is one who lives a life of attainment, determined that before he
completes this cycle or period of earthly existence he shall have accomplished
through personal endeavor some deed of goodness for the betterment o f the human
race.
"The Rosaecrucians have nothing to do with any other religion, including the
Christian religion. They created the symbol of the cross, they say, and the
Christians adopted it. They do not teach spiritualism nor mediumship.
Rosaecrucianism has nothing to do with Yogi or other philosophy. It sells no books
or degrees purporting to contain secrets of initiation. It has regular lodges or
temples in various cities, each with its master officer and under officials: It has
also its grand lodges, and its supreme lodge is in this city. The work of the
American branch is outlined by the supreme council of the world and is secret. The
funds are collected by regular contributions."

The Rosaecrucians lodge of New York city has apparently judged it wise to use
another name than its famous one; it functions as a society for educational
purposes as the Metropolitan College, Incorporated. The president of this college
was formerly a Jesuit priest and it has a large society of adepts and initiates and
probationers, with branches and connections in other cities.

Tells of Weird Initiation.


Meetings and classes or the "college" are held in the Masonic Temple in Harlem.
Classes for the instruction of probationers are held weekly and the "initiates," some
of whom are called "Initiates of Tibet," meet on the 15th and last of each month.
All meetings are held at night and the religious meetings, so-called, start at
midnight.
A candidate for probation is obliged to show letters from three well known
business men who have known him for at least five years. When these have been
passed on favorably by the officers he will be summoned to the initiation
ceremonies. As the ancient and mystical order is truly mystical and secret, to know
what these ceremonies are one must depend on what is told by persons who have
gone so far as to have the experience and then backed out A woman o f a high
degree of intelligence and genuinely "seeking" had the experience and did retreat.
She tells the story of her initiation in good faith and would willing to sign her
statement if by doing so any good would be gained.
"Another woman and a man were the other candidates for initiation besides
myself' said she. "We were locked in a small antechamber while the society
carried on its ritual in the main auditorium Occasionally we heard a loud voice
raised in speech or a sort of song or chant, but these came to us muffled. I talked
with the woman candidate, who was very nervous, and learned that she mourned a
dear relative and in the hope of getting into communication with her spirit she had
sought the aid of the Rosicrucians. The male candidate impressed me as being
influenced by curiosity simply.
"At the stroke of midnight the doors were thrown open and we three were
admitted into the big chamber. It was dimly lighted. An assemblage o f 200 or 300
persons, each wearing a black robe with a black headdress and mask moved in
procession past us and around the hall. Each one, whether man or woman, carried a
cross with a red rose upon it, lighted by electricity. At the head of the procession

walked two men, one bearing a bowl o f sacrificial blood and the other a skull.
These were also illuminated by electricity.
"When the procession had paused near the top of the room we, the candidates,
went blindfolded and led before them Then oaths were administered to us. I wish I
could remember how these were phrased but I do not. They were long and we were
asked to repeat them in sections, and all I recollect is that the oaths were very
weird and wild. The principal oath was coached in quaint language, which we were
told came down from the fourteenth century. The last oath of the series was that we
would never reveal the secrets of the order or exhibit to an outsider any of the
literature of the Rosicrucians.
"The folds were then removed from our eyes and we were given seats in a circle
while initiates gave exhibitions of magic to prove what powers can be gained by a
diligent student.
"Throughout this exhibition the auditorium remained dimly lighted, but the altar
with the cross and rose shone brilliantly.
"In the circle in which I sat to witness whatever marvels might be vouchsafed
there were, I think, about twenty-four persons, new members and we three
candidates. In our midst stood an initiate of Tibet with his feet resting on the bare
floor. We could see him dimly and he gradually faded from view as if he sank into
the floor. As soon as he had completely disappeared from our circle his voice was
heard from the altar, and turning our eyes there we saw him standing in front o f the
cross.
"This seemed wonderful but it did not content the male seeker, who asked for
further miracles, and his request was echoed by several voices. The initiate agreed
to produce a dozen fresh roses with the dew on them and cause them to fall from
the air in our midst. Apparently he did this. The roses fell one by one in the midst
of the circle, each one wet with dew as if freshly plucked. The season was winter
and the initiate stood far removed from us, near the altar. Following this
demonstration nothing further in the way of magic was done, and to repeated
requests for more the adepts frankly said they were exhausted.

Resignation Carries Penalty.


"I went to one or two classes, after this general meeting, but I decided that I did
not care to carry out my plan to become an adept member and asked to be

permitted to resign. The secretary of Metropolitan College, who is the wife of a


dealer in secret society equipment in Maiden lane, replied to my request that I
could be allowed to resign only by paying into the society a sum equal to one-tenth
of my income and by returning all literature that I had borrowed or purchased. I
have done neither and have received many letters from officers and adepts which
are fairly threatening in their nature. It has come to my knowledge since trying to
free myself from any connection with the Rosicrucians that another aspirant in
endeavoring to break with the society had an even more unhappy experience than
mine."
"Our House of the Holy Ghost," is the veiled admission of the Society of
Rosicrucians, "though a hundred thousand men should have looked upon it, is yet
doomed to remain untouched, imperturbable, out o f sight, and unrevealed to the
whole godless world forever."
As if in agreement with this desired mystery the beginnings o f the Society of the
Rosy Cross are difficult to find in history. That it was founded by one Christian
Rosencreutz, a German mystic who dwelt for a time in India and Egypt and
claimed to have absorbed their secret wisdom, is vehemently denied, and so is the
statement that the name of the secret order is derived from his cognomen: Lewis
denies that it was established in Germany by him or by Andrea Valentine or by
Martin Luther. Claims of its foundation by all of these are made by different
authors seeking the fountain head.
Lewis tells of a seeker named Arnaud who had heard of a wonderful society in
Egypt which held the key to all science and all art. At the instance o f Charlemagne
Arnaud went to Thebes in 778 A. D., returned to France six years later and
established the first Rosicrucian lodge. The place was Toulouse and the year 804.
From that start we hear of it all over Europe as it pursued its course with the
various tinctures of differing material, national habit and custom, but never
definitely.
From the beginning the society pretended to transmute metals, to prolong life, to
possess knowledge o f what was occurring in distant places and to foretell the
future. Vaughan, who planted it in America, "lost" the Rosaecrucian stone in order,
he said, "that it might sink into the soil and fertilize the land with the thought and
spirit o f Rosicrucianism."
Although known to the world as Brothers o f the Rosy Cross, a mere exact

etymology is derived from ros (dew) and rosa (rose). Dew was considered by the
ancients as the most powerful solvent of gold and the cross in alchemy is the
synonym of light. In 1638 a bit of doggerel fixed its mission thus:

"For what we do presage is not in grosse.


For we are brothers of the Rosie Crosse:
We have the Mason word and second sight
Things for to come we can fortell aright."

Some of the ancient books of the society may be seen, according to a statement
made by the head of the order here, in our public library, "but only in a private
place, where by special privilege I may show them for the edification o f true
adepts. These books are rudely bound, printed on papyrus and leather; some o f the
leaves are crumbling from veiy age."
More modern writings are titled like the following: "Astrological Letters."
"Death and the Life In Purgatory," "Life and Activity in Heaven," "Birth, a
Fourfold Event," "Astronomical Allegories of the Bible," &c.
These books and others like "Continuity or Life, a Cosmic Truth." by Prof. W. L
Lockwood, "Beyond the Borderline of Life," by Gustavus Myers, may be had by
addressing the publishers and booksellers to the S. R. I. A., who are at 45 John
street, New York, but other books intended for students and postulates are given
out mysteriously at the "college," and all are warned not to permit an outsider to
see them To do so is to commit a crime by making the Rosicrucian secrets
common.
The Mercury is the official organ of "Metropolitan College" and is issued
semimonthly. It gives the calendar for the month, a biography of some illustrious
initiate and other innocuous matter. A book o f "Principles and Practice for
Rosicrucians" is issued for neophytes. It was written for the fraternity by "Khei."
Another book cherished by seekers Is "The Landmarks o f the Most Holy Order of
the Golden and Rosy Cross, and the Constitution o f the Societas Rosicruciana in
America: to which are appended the By-Laws o f Metropolitan College, S. R.I.A."

Prayer of the Rosicrucian.


Here is the prayer of the Rosicrucian, which he is expected to repeat at least
three times daily "in a slow, forceful and intense manner":
"Great Central Flame: thee we venerate, thee we adore, thee we invoke: not as a
person but as Essence. Power, wisdom. Light and Life Incarnate. Be with us in this
and all laudable undertakings.
"Invisible Fraters of the Rose Cross: Let your guidance be manifest through
counsel o f the Worshipful Adept in this and future convocations."
To all the secret publications from which the above data were drawn is appended
this "Allegiance":
"Metropolitan College S. RI A. acknowledges allegiance to the magi and officers
of the high council of the Societas Rosicruciana in America as the sovereign source
of the Rosicrucian art in the United States of America. The house o f the S. S. is at
present situate in the city of New York."

In tbe laet Issue of It* official quarterly,


dated September, I t t t , we read on th* cover
that It* teaching* and finding* are "amplified

Medieval Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry. Druld'lam,'* etc. Not* that It *ay* Intimate connection!
On th* *ame page w e find that It offer* a* on*
of it* correspondence course*, to any one, leaton*
on Ksoterlc Masonry-** In th* same tame we
' read on page 140 the*e significant word*:
First, Rosicrucianism I* not an appendage
o f Freenkasoory. Tho Rosicrucian. Fraternity is
regarded by It* members and by several o f the

authority; but tho moat Important points are

for tbe collection of subjects pertaining to Free
masonry and secret societies In general, and to
add such Rosicrucian 'forms, titles and number*

CLAIMS TO BE MASONIC
PARENT
,
In the laiit Issue of Its official quarterly,
dated September, 10Z6, we read on the cover
th at Ita teachings and findings are "amplified
thru Its Intim ate connection with Ancient and
Medieval ROKlcruclanlam, Freemasonry, DruidIsm," etc. Note th at It says Intim ate connection!
On the same page we find th at It offers as one
of Its correspondence courses, to any one, lessons
on Esoteric Masonry. In the sam e Issue we
read on page 140 these significant words:
"First, Rosicrucianism Is not an appendage
of Freemasonry. The Rosicrucian.Fraternity Is
regarded by Its members end by several ot the
best Masonlo historians and researchers, as tbe
parent eource ot Freemasonry. There ere many
conditions that make this a plausible theory.
The l'raternlcy. today. In Its Constitution, re
quires certain ot It* High Council member* to be
not only Master Masons, but Masons ot ell degrtes. However, even this Is an Innovation ot
rccent years.

NONE WILL BELIEVE IT

NOT TRUE ROSICRUCIANISM


We tar that the above paragraph is sig
nificant because It attempts to foster the Idea
that Rosicrucianism Is-not merely affiliated with
Freemasonry, but Is recognized today as the
parent body or guiding body of Freemasonry.
And tbe statement is misleading because it
attempts to associate tho two. organizations and
to make readers believe that the Rosicrucian
Fraternity limits Jts high councils. to Free
masons. This is probe bly. the case with the
society we have been discussing. BUT IT IS
NOT TRUK OF THE UOSICRUCIAN ORDER
THROUGHOUT THK "WORLD.
Such claims to Masonic connection are
further emphasized by this Society of Roslcructau* by the official statement.'!! sent to Hartmanti 1925 inane of a Directory of Occult and
Fraternal Societies. There, on page
this

tact that has made the Rosicrucian teachings
notable in comparison with modern cults; and
we know tho same thing can be said In regard
to the teachings of Freemasonry.
Tet. here Is an organization, a society, using

In attempting to start this new, local Rosicrucian group in this city, these
several ex-members of the nation-wide Rosicrucian body known as AMORC,
have made serious charges against me as chief executive of AMORC and
against die organization as a whole.
To arouse the just indignity of Tampas population they have principally
charged that the AMORC claims itself to be associated with Freemasonry and is
otherwise sailing under false colors. The facts are that this new Rosicrucian
branch of a small New York society has itself been persistently claiming
intimate connection with Freemasonry.
Under the pretense of protecting the righteous interests of Freemasonry - as
though such interests needed protection! - this new group hopes to secure
Masonic endorsement here of its particular form of Rosicrucian work and
official condemnation of the AMORC , which high endorsement and
condemnation they will use in a nationwide, according to their inglorious
threats.
To protect the good name of AMORC and at the same time to reveal the
insidiousness of the campaign now under way, I present these facts to the
hundreds of our members and many hundreds of friends in this locality, solely
in the spirit of fair play.
This other organization has been operating for some years as a Rosicrucian
society in America under the leadership of Khei, and it also claims to be a
chartered branch of a local society in England.
We are not attempting to criticise this society for its researches into
Rosicrucian and arcane teachings, its purpose of disseminating such
knowledge, or its methods of arousing an interest in Rosicrucianism, except as
such methods include statements which are misleading and unwarranted.

In examining the early propaganda literature of the parent (English) body of


this American society we find in a book written by their own Supreme Magus,
published in London in 1916, the origin and purpose of this society outlined in
an interesting d manner.
After reviewing all the early historical references to various ancient
Rosicrucian organizations in Europe, the book comes to the founding of this
modem society in England. We read:
The name Rosicrucian has suffered greatly from the pretentions of men, who
falsely claiming membership, have made exaggerated, false and unreasonable
statements regarding the powers and possessions of the Fratres of the Rosy
Cross. Very true, indeed!

CLAIMS MASONIC BIRTH


Then we find how this particular society was bom and what claims it makes.
It is clearly stated that the Society in Englandthe parent body of the American
societywas designed by Robert Wentworth Little who rescued some rituals
from the store-room of Freemasons Hall and Kenneth R. H. Mackenzie, who
had received Rosicrucian initiation in Austria, while living with Count Apponyi
as an English tutor, and also Authority to form an English Masonic Rosicrucian
Society.
Several interesting points are involved in this illuminating paragraph which
presents a very strange origin for any society. First, we should like to know how
it came about that the only available Rosicrucian Rituals were located in
Freemasons Hall in England, which place has been the principal Masonic
archives for many years. Second, what danger surrounded these Rituals that
they required such strenuous action as rescuing? Third, how is it possible for an
Austrian Rosicrucian to authorize the establishment of an English MASONIC
Rosicrucian Society?
BECOMES LITERARY SOCIETY
If all this is not an attempt to make it appear that the said Society was a new
form of Masonic study and work, then let us read a little further. We find that
one year after its foundation with rescued rituals, the first Lodge or College of
the Society was opened, Mr. Little, referred to above, was its Supreme Magus
and William James Hughan, the Masonic Historian, was one of the "Substitute
Magi. Now we recall that, as a Masonic Historian, Mr. J Hughan has an
excellent reputation for preciseness, and we recall that he was one of the editors
of "History of Freemasonry, by Stillson and Hughan. So we turn, for a mo
ment, to see what Hughan permitted to be published in his history about this
Rosicrucian Masonic Society, of which he was a high officer and intimate
associate. In Part V., page 873, we read:

The modem and present existing Society of Rosicrucians was instituted


through the inception and influence of Robert Wentworth Little, of England,
who, in his searches in Germany, came upon the remnants and outline of an old
association, which, he resurrected and rehabilitated in order to create a
literary organization, retaining the forms, titles, and numbers of the degrees, so
far as might be subservient to his purposes, which were defined to be as
follows: to create a base for the collection and deposit of archaeological and
historical subjects pertaining to Freemasonry, secret societies in general,
and interesting provincial matter; to inspire a greater disposition to obtain
historical truth and to displace error; to bring to light much in relation to a
certain class of scientists and scholars, and the result of their life labors, that
were gradually dying away in the memories of men. (The emphasis in this
paragraph is mine).

LIMITED TO FREEMASONS
If we examine this paragraph we find a discrepancy between it and the
official statement as to where Mr. Little secured his rituals and authority; but the
most important points are those to which I have given emphasis by blackface
type. To resurrect and rehabilitate the remnant and outline of an old association
in Germany in order to create a literary society, is NOT an official manner of
establishing a Rosicrucian organization. But, to make such a society the base for
the collection of subjects pertaining to Freemasonry and secret societies in
general, and to add such Rosicrucian forms, titles and numbers of the degrees,
so far as might be subservient to his purposes, is to confound Freemasonic re
search and study with a relationship to Rosicrucian.
If this is not sufficient to show that the society started out solely to be a new
attachment to Freemasonry without any justification for it in the requirements of
Freemasonry, let us see what happened a few years later. We read on page 10 of
an official book of this society, published in America, that other Lodges or
"colleges" were established soon after 1879 and that by the establishment of
these branch bodies the society was entitled to form its own high council of
authority. This may be proper organization work, but note that this fine point is
stated:
"Membership in these colleges was limited to Freemasons of the 32nd Degree;
quarterly meetings were held and their sessions were devoted principally to a
banquet, with an aftermath-of a literary and philosophical nature, with little if
any attempt to exemplify the Rosicrucian Degrees with the philosophy they
embodied.
That does not sound like Rosicrucian sessions with the traditional seriousness
and sublime sacredness which constitute the very foundation of all true

Rosicrucian conclaves. But, it is typical of the sessions of the literary societies


of that day and of this day. Note, however, that it was a society for Freemasons
exclusively.
NO ROSICRUCIAN WORK
A further indication that the society thus formed, and establishing branches
of itself in America, was not organized on Rosicrucian principles with
Rosicrucian authority, is shown by the words of this society in other pieces of
its own official literature. We note, for instance, that they did not permit women
to unite with them; and on page four of a book recently issued by them, as well
as on page eleven of another official pamphlet, they state that:
A member of the Massachusetts College (lodge), in Boston, thoroughly
awake to the omission , of the real Rosicrucian work, and having received the
VIII Degree constituting him a Provincial Magus of the Fraternity, engaged in
special research work to recover the original Eckartshausen Rituals of the
Fraternity.
Thus we see that although the society was establishing Rosicrucian lodges or
"colleges" and was conducting its member through degrees as high as the VIII
and conferring upon them one of the Rosicrucian titles which had been made
subservient to their purposes, they admit having had no real Rosicrucian
Work, and one of their highest members engaged himself in the labor of
recovering some Rituals possessed by a descendant of an early German
Rosicrucian Lodge. Further on the same page we read that it was the ambition
of this VIII Degree member to undertake the formation and institution of a
branch of the Fraternity that would devote itself exclusively to the true
Rosicrucian Art and Operations, and at the same time open its doors to both
sexes on a basis of true equality."
NO ROSICRUCIAN AUTHORITY
In other words this member hoped to secure a proper authority and real
system of the Rosicrucian order for his American society, even to the extent of
following the ancient Rosicrucian principle of admitting women, instead of
limiting membership to Freemasons. But, according to this same booklet, the
transition of this member prevented the fulfillment of his personal ambition.
This setback in the plans was overcome by the officers of the American society
who proceeded to reorganize their almost extinct literary society on the basis of
authority given to them by that conscientious member before his transition.

Thus, the society in America today, says the official book again, is the
outgrowth of the old society in the United States, most of the Colleges
(lodges) of which became either dormant, extinct or inoperative.
Here we see by their own admission that the present society, calling itself
Rosicrucian, is an outgrowth of the parent bodys branches founded as a literary
society, formed by Freemasons, for Freemasons and to study Freemasonic and
other "archaeological and historical subjects.
Is it any wonder that persons reading such literature in their search for
Rosicrucianism, believe that this society, using the name Rosicrucian and a
symbol much like the ancient one, is a part of or in some way officially
affiliated with Freemasonry? If you are one who may argue that it is all in the
way you read such matter, let us take some of its more recent literature and see
what it claims in unmistakable language.

CLAIMS TO BE MASONIC PARENT


In the last issue of its official quarterly, dated September, 1926, we read on
the cover that its teachings and findings are amplified thru its intimate
connection with Ancient and Medieval Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry,
Druidism, etc. Note that it says intimate connection! On the same page we find
that it offers as one of its correspondence courses, to any one, lessons on
Esoteric Masonry. In the same issue we read on page 140 these significant
words:
First, Rosicrucianism is not an appendage of Freemasonry. The Rosicrucian,
Fraternity is regarded by its members and by several of the best Masonic
historians and researchers, as the parent source of Freemasonry. There are many
conditions that make this a plausible theoiy. The Fraternity, today, in its
Constitution, requires certain of its High Council members to be not only
Master Masons, but Masons of all degrees. However, even this is an innovation
of recent years."

NOT TRUE ROSICRUCIANISM


We say that the above paragraph is significant because it attempts to foster the
idea that Rosicrucianism is not merely affiliated with Freemasonry, but is
recognized today as the parent body or guiding body of Freemasonry. And the
statement is misleading because it attempts to associate the two organizations
and to make readers believe that the Rosicrucian Fraternity limits its high
councils to Freemasons. This is probably the case with the society we have been
discussing. BUT IT IS NOT TRUE OF THE ROSICRUCIAN ORDER
THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

Such claims to Masonic connection are further emphasized by this Society of


Rosicrucians by the official statement it sent to Hartman's 1925 issue of a
Directory of Occult and Fraternal Societies. There, on page 125, this Society of
Rosicrucians says of itself that its first attempt to establish a branch of its own
in America in 1878 was on Masonic lines, and at the close of the article we
read this:
The Societas Rosicruciana in America works in complete harmony and
close association with the Masonic Fraternity, and constitutionally, its major
officers are Masons of all Rites and Degrees.

WHAT IT TEACHES
Let us turn now to another book, the official text-book of this Rosicrucian
society, sold by mail to anyone and purchasable in bookstores a state of
affairs that is inconsistent with the traditions of the true Rosicrucian order which
has never published text books for the profane with a claim that they contained
its teachings and in this book of Fundamentals we find again and again the
statement made that Freemasonry of today in America and England is not only
associated with Rosicrucianism, but even more than this. For instance, in the
XIII Chapter of this official textbook, whose author is given as Khei, the head
of the Society, and whose publication is authorized by the High Council of
the society, we read:
It is the teaching of the Brotherhood, that Freemasonry owes its real origin
to the Rosicrucians. In other words, this Society teaches this claim to its
members.
Then on page 321, in the same Chapter, we find that after the author has tried
to show that Masonry does not contain all the secrets and explanation of the
symbolism of the Masons, the seeker is told he must go to the Rosicrucian
teachings: This is stated in these words:
Since Masonry, the offspring, fails us in our search for the true exegesis, we
must turn to Rosicrucianism, the parent.
A TERRIBLE EXAMPLE
Such a misstatement of fact is unfair both to Freemasonry and
Rosicrucianism. There is nothing in the true teaching of Rosicrucianism that
reveals the secrets or meanings of the Freemasonic symbolism or work from a
Masonic point of view. Such a claim is intended solely to make Freemasons
believe that if they have not quickly and easily discerned all there is to discern
in Freemasonry, they need only unite with the Rosicrucian society. It is
ridiculous and without the slightest warrant.
How does the society proceed to illustrate such a point? We read on in the
same Chapter of this official textbook. We approach an interesting point. The
author is offering his Rosicrucian explanation of the Masonic symbolism of the

House not made with hands. We wonder what dare be said in public print on
this subject. We are assured, however, that what follows was read before
Metropolitan Lodge No. 1, Ark Mariner Masons, New York City, in 1918, and
that by publishing it freely to the world
No Masonic Obligations have been violated by this procedure and it is hoped
that this Instruction will be studied most carefully by all Masons to whom it
may come, whether they are members of the Rosicrucian Fraternity or not.
So, believing that what is to follow was approved by Masons and I s not
prohibited by them as secret parts of their studies, we are astounded and
shocked to discover that this author presents the matter that was given in the
above Masonic lodge, in the form of sex-teachings! Can anything be further
away from pure Rosicrucianism and true Freemasonry? Actually, the columns
before the Temple of Solomon and the entrance way are associated with sex
matters in words that are too disgusting for us to think of using here and which
could never enter a lecture or discussion connected with real Rosicrucianism.

NONE WILL BELIEVE IT


How can Masons of today read such matter and believe that it la either
Masonic or Rosicrucian? Rosicrucianism does not touch upon sex matters
anywhere in its thousands of lessons, in any of its booklets, discussions,
symbols or physiological treatises. It is this one outstanding fact that has made
the Rosicrucian teachings notable in comparison with modem cults: and we
know the same thing can be said in regard to the teachings of Freemasonry.
Yet, here is an organization, a society, using the name Rosicrucian, claiming
to be "intimately connected" with and the "parent" of Freemasonry, appealing to
Freemasons in every breath, limiting its high council membership to
Freemasons and otherwise proclaiming an affiliation or connection with
Masonic bodies, contrary to all Masonic principles and at the same time
offering as official teachings such things as are an insult to the intelligence of
either Freemasons or Rosicrucians and unfit for polite discussion anywhere.

WHAT AMORC CLAIMS


In conclusion let us call the reader's attention to what AMORC has always
said about the connection of Rosicrucianism with Freemasonry. We knew, too,
that some Masons might think that there was a connection between the RoseCroix Degree of Freemasonry and the Rose Cross of our Order. Hence we tried
in every clear cut emphatic manner and in every piece of official propaganda
literature, to state the true situation.

In the first propaganda book issued by the AMORC to be sent through the
mails all over the United States, we said:
"When we say that the Order (AMORC) has absolutely no connection with
any branch of the Theosophical Society, the New Thought Movement or
Freemasonry, we do not mean to say such a connection would be displeasing or
detrimental; but it is unnecessaryand impossible! ... In respect to all these
movements we have only the kindest thoughts and good wishes.
The book containing the above statement, on page six, was distributed for
many years while we had our headquarters in New York and San Francisco, and
not less than 60,000 copies of such books, outlining the nature and purposes of
the AMORC, were distributed.
On the same page, in the same AMORC book, is this very definite statement:
"Lest there be any misunderstanding, let it be known that the Order (AMORC)
in America is not affiliated in any waynor are its Supreme Officerswith
any other philosophical, scientific or occult organization in America."
There is nothing indefinite or misleading about that statement.
The first newspaper articlessome covering a whole page, such as that in
the New York World Magazine Section for March, 26th, 1916 announcing the
establishment of the Order in America, distinctly state that the AMORC was
being sponsored solely by Rosicrucian bodies or authorities of Europe and
mentions no connection with any other society.
When the time came to prepare a new national propaganda booklet because
of the move of the headquarters to Tampa from San Francisco, the same
precautions against misunderstanding were taken. The new book, still in use,
with thousands of copies distributed in every state of the United States and in all
parts of Canada and Mexico, and with at least five thousand copies distributed
right here in Tampa itself, says in very plain language on page thirteen:

NO MASONIC CONNECTION
"Just as the AMORC has no physical relationship with the Freemasonic
Order, even though., this body has every right to use the term Rose Croix and
the Rosy Cross symbol in its Scottish Rites (as mentioned on page 5) even so
the AMORC is not physically connected with some of the other movements in
Europe and America," etc. Throughout the book the statement is emphasized
that AMORC is independent of all other societies or organizations and our lit
erature, which has been translated in seven languages and disseminated through
the world for many years, presents the same consistent claims.
In summarizing, then, let us repeat: There may be a society in England using
the term Rosicrucian, founded by some men as a Rosicrucian Masonic literaiy
society and having no real Rosicrucian rituals or work, and having some
assistance from an Austrian or German source through an individual. And it
may be that this English body, created without any intention of making it a pure

Rosicrucian body, chartered some branches in America which passed away and
then were revived as being intimately connected" with Freemasonry.
But, the fact remains that the Rosicrucian bodies can be formed in only one
way, by sponsorship and guidance by a superior Rosicrucian body possessing
and retaining the ancient authority, ritual, constitution and system as well as the
pure teachings, FREE FROM ALLIANCE WITH ANYTHING BUT PURE
ROSICRUCIANISM.
The Rosicrucian Fraternity in Germany was NOT the first and parent body in
Europe. That is believed only by those who also believe that there was a person
or character having the name Christian Rosenkreuz without realizing that this
was merely a pen-name used on some propaganda books, and means, when
translated from the German, "Christian Rosy Cross." The Order in Germany and
Austria, as in other countries at different periods, was founded on authority and
approval from a superior body, and that superior body of men a real high
council indeed existed in Toulouse, France, for several centuries after having
existed in India and Egypt.

AUTHORITY FROM AN INDIVIDUAL IMPOSSIBLE


To claim that any person could go from England or America to the home of a
Rosicrucian member in Austria or Germany and there receive, at the hands of
one person, Rosicrucian Initiation and Authority to start an "English Masonic
Rosicrucian Society," as this society in England and America claims, is too
absurd to argue. It may make an appeal, under a misleading impression, to some
Freemasons, but not to many, in fact. If authority to organize new jurisdiction of
any ancient order could be granted in this way, what a mess there would be in
all society circles.
No Rosicrucianism has absolutely no connection with Freemasonry today,
and has not had for hundreds of years, even though they may have cooperated in
many ways in years gone by in England, and even though many Freemasons in
Europe today are also Rosicrucians, and some of their conclaves are held in the
same cities in the same vacation period of the summer. In America, at any rate,
the two bodies have NEVER been associated or affiliated, despite any of the
claims and great insinuations of this "literary" society of Rosicrucians.

THE FACTS ABOUT THE AMORC AUTHORITY


The Rosicrucian Order, known internationally as AMORC (or translations of
this name) is not only separate from all other but Rosicrucian societies, but in its
very first pronunziamento issued in this country it proclaimed itself to be a
separate and distinct organization, and this proclamation was incorporated in its

Constitution when each of its various paragraphs were adopted by the great
national convention of Rosicrucian Delegates from all over the United States.
The AMORC in America today is the only Rosicrucian organization
affiliated with the international bodies of Rosicrucians throughout the world. It
is the only Rosicrucian body in America having received authority, power,
rights and assistance from a competent body of Rosicrucians of the ancient
lineage and through the See of Toulouse, the recognized and traditional
International seat of true Rosicrucianism for many centuries.
Likewise the AMORC in America, as in dozens of foreign lands, is die only
Rosicrucian organization using the original and true Rituals, Titles, Degrees,
symbols and secret work, as translated, revised and adapted from century to
century under competent authority and approved by the various international
Rosicrucians Congresses. And it is the only such body in America adhering to
the true ancient traditions, keeping itself clean and wholesome, free from sex
teachings, political arguments or misleading affiliations, bearing the authority of
Count de Bellecastle-Ligne as Hierophant of the international council and
having the only American representation in the recent and past International
Rosicrucian Congresses.
We say all this with honor and respect, as we have always said, to all other
orders and movements in America, especially the Freemasonic; and many
incidents in our work here in America have shown and proved that each one of
us at headquarters has labored often at great sacrifice, to maintain the
independence of Rosicrucianism and at the same time the good wishes of every
other organization acting fairly and in accordance with facts.
* * *

There are many hundreds of reputable citizens in this district who are only
too happy to vouch for the cleanness and fairness of the activities of AMORC,
but just as the AMORC protected the Rosicrucian Symbols as the AMORC
name with the only Registration of this kind in the United States Patent Office,
and protected its organization form by proper legal incorporation in many states,
countries and lands, so the AMORC will use its vast national and international
resources to protect its name at this time. The matter presented on this page will
be given national and international distribution through its own magazines in
different countries and through the newspapers. Telegrams and letters are being
received from all Rosicrucian jurisdictions everywhere offering to assist in this
open presentation of the real facts. As in the past, the slogan of the Order is
Soli Deo Gloria!

Tho coming of the order to Ban Jose,
which was selected for ita Ideal oilmale, according to Dr. Lowli, and the
lock of congestion, will bo a very great

IS 3000 TEARS OLD


In tho words of Dr. Lewis tho or
ganization Is moro than 3000 years
old, having been founded by King
Amenhotep of tho Egyptians, centuries
beforo tho advent of Christ. It Is to
Amenhotcp's recently excavated city
that tho expedition plana to head next
year, and there, amid tho recon
structed ruins, lead a llfo similar to
the tradilton of the ancient people.
It will bo a trip primarily proposed
for the collection of scientific data
regarding the fine sciences, which tho
Ill-fated Amcnhotcp fostcicd during
biiof reign.
Tho symbol of tho ordorAMORC
Is taken from tho ancient and mystical
order o f "rosao crucli," The order
already operates four stations, at
Tampa, New York, Montreal and
Vancouver and haa already applied for
a transfer of tho Tampei license to
San Jose.
Tho contract for tho E g y p t i a n
templo to bo erected on tho half block
f property owned by the order at
Neglee and Chapman Streets, has
already been awarded to tho Minton
Company of th is vicinity, and many
other local contracts will be prepared
shortly.
In addition, ft Is expected that many
new homes will be built In San Jose i
by the attraction here of students of
the organisation.

.5,000 FROM AMERICA

TO MOVE TO EGYPT
W ill Try Living Under Ancient

La w s.
San Francisco. Five thousand
American men, women nnd children
plan to move to. an ancient RgyptUm
} city by the Nile and prove thoy con
live there harmoniously and progres
sively without benefit of modern con
veniences. This w u b the announce
ment made by Dr. H. Spencer Lewis,
national president of the Rosecruclan Order, a philosophical cult.
Doctor Lewis declared plans were
being made to have the expedition sail
late next year.
Tha city of Tel-el-Amarne, sun city
of Amenhotep the fourth, founder of
the Jlosecm dan Order, is the site
picked for tbe experiment, Doctor
Lewis said. The expedition will con*
tain an approximate even number o f
men and women, all carefully selected
for their physical fltnees and devotion
to the principles of the teachings un
der which they are to live.
There will also be several chil
dren, Doctor Lewis said.
Estab
lishment of families will be encour
aged. '

The colony will abandon modern


dress for coslume of the ancient
Egyptians and will forsake mechan
ical implements for the crude tools o f
3300 B. C. They are to live accord
ing to the principle* propounded by
Amenhotep in b d effort to demon
strate that these laws have not lost
their value for the human race.

While carpenters and painters and


masons nnd other members of the
building trades arc still hard at work,
rushing the new building to comple
tion, the national hradquartors of the
Ancient Mystic Order of Rosicrucians
was occupied today by the headquar
ters' staff.
The last plect of office furniture
and equipment was moved to the n<*w
plant In Nnelrc Avenue today. While
work still remains to be done on Uie
new building, all of the office records
and nil of the office staff, have been
transferred from the temporary head
quarters on The Alameda, In use for
somo weeks past.
EGYPTIAN STYLE
The front of the new structure Is
In the classic Egyptian style. It was
drsignrd by E. T. Strwar Rosicru
cian of Tampa. Fla., designer of many
Masonic buildings, who has traveled
extensively In the Orient, gathering
Information and material to aid In the
design of Just such structures. Two
tall battlement flagpoles arc to be
erected at the front.
The main entrance way. also In pure
Egyptian style, has two Egyptian an
tique doors, fitted with stained glnas
windows, and further ornamented
with hammered antique knockers and
hlngra.
LOnnY EGYPTIAN
The main lobby is also Egyptian In
character, with three Egyptian doon,
the bronze handles of which repre
sent mummies in their caskets. The
door casings taper, being narrower at
top than at bottom. The reverse side
of the doors arc of ronvcntlonal mod
ern design.
One of tho doors from the lobby
leads Into the AMORC radio broad
casting studio. The walla and coil
ing of the studio arc being lined with
double thicknesses of material ol
echo-proof qualities, to permit cleai
broadcasting without confusion from ,

interferrnro of reflected sound waves.


ORIENTAL DRAPERIES
Many thousands of dollars arc In
vested In rare Oriental rugs which
will cover the studio floors.
Still
other thousands represent the Invest
m ent for costly Oriental draperies and
couches and a clever lighting system,
which will convert the interior of the
studio Into a replica of an Oriental
seraglio.
On the opposite side of tho lobby
aro halls leading to a Ubcrary room,
finished In mahogany. Here also are
the offices of the Imperator, Dr. H.
Spcnccr Lewie, and the supreme sec
retary. Ralph M. Lewis.
EX PERIM EN T*! LABORATORY
In this building will also be loeated
the experimental laboratory. Accord
ing to Dr. Lewis, considerable experi
m ents have already been conductcd
by the Rosicrucians, many of them of
startling significance.
"We plan to continue our experi
ments In television here, as well as
high and low frequency radio trans
mission. We have actually performed
the feat of transmission of matter hy
radio, for a distance of about 20 feet,
using beam transmission. The ex
periment was carried out with gold,
whlc.li was broken down Into electrons
by a process of i. Jlo-octivlty. and then
sent out on a carrier wave, and gath
ered together by an accumulator.
"In 1012, at the same time that Dr
Herrold was experimenting with radio
telephone broadcasting here, we were
experimenting with radio reception at
the AMORC laboratory in New Vork.
We perfected tho method of radio
phone reception by crystal detector
receiving voice broadcasts from aa far
away as Chicago. We donated the
circuit and the results of our experi
ments to the United States Nftvy
yard a t Brooklyn, and it was adopt
ed for Navy use.
TRANSMUTATION TESTS
"Wc have even reached that goal
of the alchemists of ancient days

t r a n s m u t a t io n

tests

"We have even rcachod that goal


of the alchemists of ancient days
the transmission of baser metals Into
gold. In some of our cheiglcal experi
ments. We have m ade th e expert*
mcnts In the presence of newspaper
men and scientific men of first rank,
transmuting 2lnc to gold. It costs
about $150 to make a dolar's worth
of gold, so It Is not a process that I b
commercially practicable.
"The gold produced stands all tests
of pure, natural gold, except that of
hardness and specific gravity. It Is
harder than natural gold. I t Is more
compact. The electron arrangement
seems more compact.
BOX OF ELEMENTS
"In a month or two you will see
here a box containing every knofan
elem ent a truly remarkable collec
tion. Wo have one unique rock which
contains all three of the radlo-actlw
elementsradium, uranium and van
adium. While examining this rock
we found that If held in the hand It
changed color. We passed It from
person to person, trying to note any
peculiar performance or variation.
There was one person In the group
troubled with kidney disease. He held
it for a few minutes and when we
looked at the rnrir we found It cov
ered with moisture. His hand was
m o ist We examined the structure pf
the crystals of the moisture drawn
from the hand, and found It to bo
uric acid. Thereupon, we treated this
individual by letting him hnld the
rock dally for a half hour. He was
shortly cured completely of his trou
ble. Since then. the rock has been
used successfully on many occasions
for the same purpose.
If
"There are many men of national
note who arc Rosicrucians. and It is
when they visit headquarters that
mast of the outstanding experimental
work Is dune ________ __ _______ ;

MAILING DErAUTMENT
|
At the rear of tho building Is a ,
large, airy, well-lighted room, used as
the mailing department. Here girls
prepare and mall out the orders pub
lications.
We send out In the neighborhood
of 100.000 plcces of mall a month,"
Dr. Lewis declared. With every piece
of mall goes a circular advertising the
beauties and advantages of San Jose.
We are hero to do what we can to
build up the community.
"We are the biggest customer the
Postal Telegraph Company has In San
Jose. Our telegraph bill runs from
t300 to $500 a month.
"Our postage alone costsf m m $100
to $150 per day, on the average. In
Florida, wc maintained one branch
postoffice by our stamp sales alone
We didn't get our mall deliveredIt
was so large thnt wo always called
for I t And- tne Doom corfSfJSIfl, W in
the result that our stamp purchases
maintained the branch postoffice.
"I believe we have the only metered
mailing machine In the country. It
automatically stamps, cancels and
' seals our mailing matter, and
a
meter keeps accurate count of the
number of pieces stamped. At the
I end of the month we pa:* th postorficc department what the meter
reading indicates. Most of our mall
leaves here bundled and sacked, ready
to go on the mall trains,
i it Is our Intention to do all our
business In San Jose, so far as pos
sible. Already we are keeping two local 'printing houses supplle- with our
work. Wc shall try to employ local
people, so far as possible.
,
RADIO STATION
I
Two tall steel masts are now being
erected for the AMORC radio station.
The radio control building Is separate
from and in the rear of the main
structure. Some >30.000 Is being ex-

ponded tor the radio Installation.


"The radio will not bo used for prop
aganda, Dr. Lewis declared. "We
arc not going to broadcast sermons
or religious services of our orderfor,
despite the symbol o* the cross 1n our
Insignia, wc have no denominational
creed to preachwe arc not a church.
Wc arc going to try to give only the
best of music, and programs that will
reflect credit to SAn Jose."
The short wave brnadrast work will
begin next week, the transmitter now
being In process of Installation. Th6
short wave station will 1: oadcast on
a wave length of 41. me tors. using a
250-watt transmitter. A counterpoise
antenna w llN b e used Instead of a
ground, giving a wave of exceptional
sharpne&i.

This map, foond on (he w ill* of the Roxlcruelan Temples and (he Pyramid Cheops during estivation* In

United States, This same eagle was many centuries later adopted a* (he ufdclal bird of (he United States
and In found on many of our coins.

H r o . A. REAVER
The very wide and Incrraslng Inter
est In the subject o f ftaslcrucianism
at the present time Indicates a nat
ural revlvnl of one of the earliest
forma of philosophical and scientific
knowledge systematized in America.
In fact. It may be c&ld that Roslcruclanlsm and the Roslcruclan princi
ples were closely allied with the foun
dation ol America and certainly played
an Important part In the establish
ment of many of Its cultural systems.
as shown by the historical records
preserved In Philadelphia nnd Wash
ington.
Ever since the first Rosicrucians
came to America In 1694 and estab
lished the first non-sectarian Sunday
school, 10 years before a Sunday school
was established In Europe, and pro
moted astronomical, botanical, chemi
cal and medical research, the Rosi
crucians have been Instrumental in
advancing the fine arts, the sciences
and the religious activities of many
organizations.
"V IA ROSAE CRUCIS
Just aa "via crucis was the cry In
tho crusades of the middle ages, so
has tha cry via Rosae Crucis" been i
the cry of countless thousands for
many centuries In tho united effort to
contribute to the personal evolution of
man and his general advancement In
civilization.
By way of the rosy cross, the cross
with the alnglo red rose In Its center,
tho symbol of Rosicrucians, or fra
ternity of the red rose and golden
crossl Mystical though the name and
symbol appear, the organization In all
ages and all climes has been one of
practical effort and distinct efficiency
In meeting the material problems o f
life. Roslcruclanlsm Is not tho doctrine
o f a cult, nor the philosophy of a
school of esthetics.
O R IG IN IN A N T IQ U IT Y
W ith its origin lost In antiquity wc
can find references to it In the sane
and rational writings of the earliest
dentists. Among Its first advocates
In the Orient wc find men- and
women whose names and fame are
associated with the discovery of medi
cine and therapeutic systems, astrono
mers, herbalists, cosmotologlsts and
chemists.
Xt is true that In the middle ages
man:* of its most learned apologists
weer alchemists and wrote much about
their "a rt of transmutation" but their
work with crucibles and fire was not
always for tho purpose of proving na
ture's processes of purifying the dross
Into the refined gold; It was tho
higher purpose of demonstrating that
In the nature of man there was that
which could be mentally transmuted
Into the spiritual essence of perfec
tion.

SEVERE M O R A L FRECEPTS
Wherever and whenever the brothers
o f the rosy cross wore united In their
official duties, there advances were
made in tho name of their symbol,
without ostentation, personal credit or
aggrandizement, and the literature of
the world Is replete with references
to the organization like that tribute
uttered by Lord Bulwer Lytion, who
said In his Roslcruclan story called
Zanonl, that It was "an august fra*
ternlty most Jealous of all secret so
cieties whose doctrines, hinted at by
tho earliest philosophers, are still a
mystery to the greatest scholars not
Initiated. Its members still prosecute
their profound researches Into natural
sciences and occult philosophy, and
no monastic order Is so severe In the
practice of moral precepts."
PRACTICES I1U M AN ITARIANISM
Known throughout the world as
tho Ancient, Mystical Order Rosae
Crucis, or by Its abbreviated name In
every land, Amorc the organization
numbers among Its present adherents
nnd followers the most learned of men
and women and those most devoted to
good citizenship, Christian living and
charitable thinking. From the highest
offices In governments In all countries
to tho quiet and undisclosed efforts
of those who have retired from tho
business world, there Issue the direc
tion and promulgation of the many
humanitarian activities of the order.
Funds are sent to the Egypt Ex
ploration Society In Boston for carry
ing on the special excavations at Telel-Amnrna, from which must light has
been thrown upon the history of scicnce and civilization; other funds are
sent to branches In Copenhagen. Ver
dun, Berlin. London and Rome for the
cars at war orphans; while through
the agency of specialized workers
clinics are maintained in many cities
fo r the care of tho sick, the rehabili
tation of soldiers, the promotion of
education and the prevention of dis
ease. Libraries are established In ac
cordance with the first Roslcruclan
manifesto to thla effect issued by Ben
jamin Franklin, who was an officer of
the early foundation In Philadelphia,
ROOSEVCLT WAS MLMBBIt
Through Its teachings, men and
women are helped in their prolesslons
and arts. Its chief officer. Dr. H.
Spencer Lewis, la one of the directors
of the American Foundation ol Fine
Arts as planned by the late Theodore
Roosevelt and Mmc. Lillian Nordica.
Who were enthusiastlo Rosicrucians.
Ho Is also the American representa
tive of the International fine aria
bodies of Europe, ol wnich Fermin
Qumier o f the Opera Comique in Park
Is the president.

Through these and many other


similar connections, tho AMORO In
North America auitts many to attain
a high degice ol perfection In tncii
chofcen lieids. while it contributes to
the advancement of m e sciencn
through Jts penutl revelation ot fuels
dibcovered in us many American aud
foreign laboratories.

NUT KfcLIUIUUS SCHOOL

TTiq organization is not a religious


Kiiool. aithougn the foundations of lit
teachings are laid in IU lu vt principle
of the Rwierucmn ontology, which is.
"And Clud breathed Into man the
oreath'ol life and the man became a
living loul," with emphatia upon the
'act that many bccume essentially a
.oul rather than a living body.
Since clergjmen and followers of
- all denominations are members of the
organization, one may see that sec
tarian doctrlncs play no part In the
teachings. However, applicants for
membership must vouch for their be
lief in the existence of Ood as well as
pledge to respect and honor the flag
ot the country and B f f l r m that they
have never been guilty ot treason or
engaged In any unlawful practice.
N O T A K IN TO Y O G I
The teachings o f the organization
are graded into classes and subjects
like the curriculum of a university and
include such matters as physics, chem
istry, psychology, ontology, cosmology,
dletlcs. biology, metaphysics, tho ap
plied and practical sciences and the
professional arts. There is not the
slightest relationship to the vague and
Oriental Ideas of the Yogi exercises,
or the Hindu methods of mysticism.
In fact, the AMORO la not a part o f
any of the nficlcnt or foreign systems
of occult study.
The principles o f Roslcruclanlsm are
very -strict In regard to moral and
ethical standards.
To RoGlcruciane,
marriage Is a most holy and sacred
tie, not to be entered Into lightly nor
easily severed. Each member Is taught
that next to his duty to Ood Is his
duty to his wife, family or parents,
then to his country.
He must be
charitable in his political and busi
ness dealings, broadly humanitarian In
his desires and actions and enthusi
astic In his support o f every move
ment, every institution and every plan
contributing to the uplift o f man or
the personal evolution o f character.

NO F A N A T IC A L DOCTRINES
There arc no fanatical or extreme
doctrines. Roslcrudans are not vege
tarians, teetotalers, antl-vlvlsectlonlsts
or reformers In any sense through
commands o f the organization. Each
is made acquainted -vlth the laws of
nature, the penalties for all violations
and allowed the privilege of choos
ing personal courses in life. The mem
bers arc not th e . blind followers o f
some leader to whom personal allegi
ance Is pledged, but equal associates
with all others in an International
body with branches In every civilized
land.
PltEE OF P A R T Y TIES
Thomas Jefferson, one of the early
officers of the organization, was one
of the first to establish the custom o f
pledging co-operation with the gov
ernment In Its activities, and since
then the AMORC In America has been
a loyal supporter of State and na
tional laws and principles. Through
many channels and with the assist
ance o f many In high office the order
Is ever alert In the protection o f the
best Interests of the oitlzens, and
being free from any political connec
tions It Is able to carry to fruition
many projects which m ight be frus
trated by party Influences.
*
Since tho organisation functions as
a fraternal body, with Its lodges and
temples. It naturally has rituals and
ceremonies, but these are not in the
form of Oriental rites of barbaric
pomp. Each ritual o f Initiation Is
a dramatic presentation of some of
the fundamental laws of nature, ar
ranged t o Impress the members with
the beauty and significance of the
principles Involved.
USE E G Y P T IA N COSTUMES
Th e order has Its own temple
buildings and lodges In the principal
cities of North America, and these are
usually of Egyptian style and decora
tion, with all officers robed In Egyp
tian costumcs o f tha nth dynasty.
Tho reason for this Is found In the
fact that the Roslcrudons trace much
of their philosophy to the wonderful
writings of Amenhotep IV, Pharaoh
of Egypt. He It was woh established
the first moiYothetstlc religion known
to man and by official decree pro
hibited the practice of heathen. Idol
worship throughout Egypt.
He claimed that tho sun disk was
not to be worshipped except In adora
tion to It as the medium o( life power
which emanated from the "sole living
Ood." iHe changed the art. literature,
moral and ethical customs of his
land, arid although he lived but a
few years he left an inldelble Im
pression upon civilization. He Is gen
erally regarded as the founder o f the
philosophncal, religious and scientific
schools of the Orient, and for this
reason he Is honored by the Roslcruclans.

A N T IQ U IT Y MERE BACKGROUND
While the in d en t philosophies are,
therefore, referred to In their dra
matic ceremonies, they form only Uie
background for the stage-setting of
the present-day teachings- No mystic
or historical character of the post Is
worshipped by the Rosicrucians and
all their sacred prayers arc directed
to the Ood of our hearts," meaning,
thereby, the Ood o f man's conscious
ness and emotional comprehension, the
Inner being of all men. tho image of
the God of the universe.
The government o f the order In
each land Is autocratic, as Is that ot
practically every fraternal organiza
tion. But each branch or lodge Is
composed of 114 members who elect a
council of 1G. This council then electa
BU- iiBBEUf ana aUicr officers are un
der the direction o f the supreme coun
cil for North America, elected to that
body by the general councils of all
lodges. The Imperator of the order.
Dr. H. Spencer Lewis, Is the chosen
leader of the supreme council as well
as a member o f tho International
council and a lagtc of the other su
premo councils of the world.
IIAS OW N COLLEGES
The organization has Its own col
leges and university In America, In
which specialized courses are given to
members who are preparing them
selves fo r definite missions In life
along very practical lines. As In the
past, tho organization Is non-commerclal, since It publishes no books for
public sale, has no merchandise or
Items o f equipment to be purchased
and gives Its Instruction to Its mem
bers without fees of any kind.
However, the order in this country
has the same reputation as has Its
parent bodies In uropo; Jt Is gener
ally believed to be enormously wealthy
and able to raise any sum of money
to carry on Its activities. For this
reason It has often been accused of
using Its alchemical knowledge to
transmute the base mcUla Into rare
ones or to direct the affairs of Its
members In such ways aa to bring un
stinted prosperity Into their lives and
thereby Into tho coffers o ' the order.

RECORD IS CLEAN
Be that as It may. the fact Is that
the organization has never been known
to want for means to carry out Its
natlon-wldo plans, nor has It ever been
sued In any court or chargcd with
any Irregularity from a. moral, ethical
or financial point of view. Its Im
perator Is a member o f many boards
of directors and Is affiliated with
many corporations and big business
propositions and Is one of tho prin
cipal supporters of the order's hu
manitarian activities,
to, the organization's reputation with
those who are unacquainted with IU
real nature, and bccausc the order
seldom seeks publicity, very few of the
real facts arc popularly known.

New Book Loaned To Sincere Seekers
The Rosicrucian w ere the M aster M ystics in all ages and today they are
organized in lodges, groups and colleges in all parts o f the w orld. In
their teachings. In their teachings they secretly preserve the ancient wisdom that

secrets of mystical power you can change the course o f your life and attract
success, health, happiness and a development of mental foresight that will astound
you and surprise your friends. The Rosicrucian teachings containing the true
knowledge of the mystics are never sold in books. But, you may borrow a book
called "The Light of Egypt," in which the strange story of the Rosicrucians is told
and an explanation given of how you may have the private teachings of the
Rosicrucian Fraternity in America.

For Pilgrimage
Like tho crusados of old, a little
pnrty will Icnvc San Joso tomorrow
night on n pUgrlmuRc to Tar lands.
But unlike lho old crusades, this
pllgrlmago will travel in tho luxury of
modern transportation to tho mystic
land of Egypt.
It is a pllgrlmago of members of the
Ancient and Mystic Order of Tlo&uc
Cruel, headquarters for which Jn
North 'America aro located In the
Amorc Temple on Nagleo Avenue.
Tho long Journey will start from
Ban Joso tomorrow night at 7:30
o'clock with a party of 12, which will
pick up additional groups en route
until moro than 200 members of the
order will ho gathered from all parts
of America and JSuropo at the end of
tho trip In Egypt.
Dr. H. Spencer Lewis of San Jose,
Imperator lor North America of the
Rosicrucian order, will conduct the
pilgrimage. Tho itinerary, as already
mapped out, is: San Joso to Los An
geles, where 50 members, representing
the Pacilic Coast, will board the
private car of tho Sunset Limited;
thenco through tho south to St.
Louts and Chicago, where 30 more will
join the party; and thenco to New
York, whero 20 moro will be picked up
for ihe voyage to Europe. In Europe,
moro than 100 are expected to join
the pilgrimage.
ANCIENT INITIATION
One of the features of tho long
pllgnmago will bo the undent Initia
tion ceremonies qmong tho rums of
Karnak Tcinplo at Tcl*el>Amarna,
The Mystic Sun City.

I lie Arabians and Egyptians from


whom a great portion of the knowl
edge which Europe then had c^me,
especially in matters of astronomy
and mathematics. It was popularly
bclic\cd
that
Rosenkreutr
had
brought back and transmitted to the
Rosicrucians the long-sought secrets
of the elixir of life and of the phil
osopher's stone which transmutes
base metals into goldA great stir was caused and there
was much running to and fro and
much furtivencis. No one could be
sure that his neighbor was not one
of the eastern maguians. Many per
sons thought the whole work a sa
tire and it has been attributed to
a German writer, Johann Valentin
Andrea.
Finally som e secret societies did
arise, calling themselves Rosicrucians. These were almost all organ
ized in Germany and from the towns
of Germany may be traced the York j

witchcraft as that section was to a


considerable degree populated by
Germans.
It is a very notable fact that the
symbolically inscribed tokens and
charms which have come to public
light as the result of the York trial
display queer charactcrs having a
quite definite resemblance to Egyp
tian nnd Arab' ancient writings and
carvings from that part of the
world.
The American branch of the Rosi
crucians contends that their society
and their ritual come down from the
Pharaoh Amcn-Hotcp, who is de
clared the f undcr. Amcn-IIotcp
was the son-in-law of Tut-AnkliAincn, whose sumptuous burial palacc in the Valley of the Kings in
Egypt lias been excavated rcccnll}.
The 200 Americans who will be
joined by Rosicrucians from other
parts of the orW, particularly E u
rope, plan to hold a great ritual in
the Temple of Karnak at midnight
on Feb. 28. They claim that the rit
ual will be the same as that gone
through with some 1,350 \ears be
fore the Christian era. They have
induced the Egyptian Exploration
Society of London to assist them in
perfecting ipropcr costumcs for the
occasion and arrangements have
been made for lodging the Rosicrucians in monasteries near Karnak.*
I t is cxpcctcd, a* a part of the
ritual, that m-iiy new members will
be initiated into the order.

Activities of Count Caglioatro.

Probably the most interesting fig


ure who ever practiced Rosicrucianisru was Joseph Dalsamo, whom the
caustic Thomas Carlyle character
ized as "the quack of quacks, t li c
most perfect scoundrcl th t in these
latter ages lias marked the vxorld's
history-" Balsamo was born iti 1743,
the son of a shopkeeper in a small
way at Palermo He is known to
history . s Count Caghostro
Even
his early life seems to have been
marked hy dishonesty but he did not
set forth in full carccr until he mar
ried Lorcuza Feliciana, daughter of
a Venetian girdle maker. Perhaps
sonic of the glory and credit for his
tremendously incredible rascalities
belong to her fc they set out from
Venice as Count and Countess Cagliostro. Th :y were richly equipped,
traveling in r. coach and four for
which doubtless they owed. I f they
did, then soon paid for them for a
they proceeded 'across Europe, 110
one questioned the title and I he gold
was good.
The connection is that the subtle
count had revived oRosicrucinmsm
and cml cllishcd it with consummate
art. He claimed he l a d discovered
that it was the forerunner of Ma
sonry and that he could work as
tounding cures. Whether or nol lie
I1 ...I some skill in mcdicinc or traded
on the faith of his patients it ap
peared from contemporary docu
ments that hr did cure people of all
the diseases in the almanac. Wealth
showered 0 1 him. In London his
fame had arrived before him and he
was met with ovations. H e claimed

that the Prophets Elijah and Enoch


were the originators of Masonry.
From Kokand the Count and
Countess traveled lo Jlu&sia where he
again was received with honors nnd
finally sen led in Slr.isburg 111 Cicrin.iny. If is fame in healing .sprcal
all over Europe The Pr'.iec Cnrdi*
nal dr Rohan, a great French prince
of both rluirrh and state, either be
cause of mmr illness or because of
rurioiity, lent word to Slranhurff
that he would like, to aer the Count.
The. Count immediately return!
word that If ihr Prince wm Ilf hr
klioiiM come lo him; if not he did not
care 1 0 er him. This only incrrnied
the Prince. Cardinal'* mrioniiy and
he went to Siraihnrf and from that
time on completely fell under Cagliostros domination. The Count and
Countess returned to Paris with him.
Hut the Prince Cardinal fell into disfa.or at the court and both he and
the Count were thrust into the bastile where they languished foi nine
months. Then thcv were released.
Tho Count was expelled from Franc-*,
nnd never ngnin did he find the old
welcome from the courts of Europe.
On visiting Rome he fell into the
hnnds of t h % Holy Office which made
short work of the whole matter, or
dered Ihe Egyptian Masonry manuncript burned hy the common hang
man, cursed any who adhered to the
belief, and sent the Count to prison
for fife where he died in a short time.
The Countess, who had been impritoned in a convent, survived him for
tome time.

Noted Expert
On Forgery
Coming Here
A. R. Lewis, acknowledged as the
dean of the world's experts on forgery,
and his wife will arrive here Sunday
to spend the months of July and
August as tho guests of their son, H.
Spencer Lewis, Imperator o f the
Rosicrucians, on Naglee Avenue.
For over thirty years Mr. Lewis was
associated with Harvey Spencer, one
of the two famous Spencer brothers,
originators of the Spencerian penman
ship sysytcm used In all schools for
many years.
I t was at this time that the science
o f chemical and microscopic exami
nation of writing, Ink and paper was
developed In connection with the
study of suspected documents or ques
tioned chlrography. In the develop
ment of the science Mr. Lewis became
the associate of Daniel T. Ames,
Americas foremost authority on un
conscious habits and tendencies In
normal and abnormal writing. After
the death of Mr. Ames, Mr. Lewis be
came the dean o f the science and
profession and has held that attain
ment over since.
IN T H A W CASE ,
As an expert In criminal chlrogTaphy, Mr. Lewis has not only served
the United States Government for
many years In Federal and local
courts, but he has been the chief ex
amining expert in such famous cases
involving forgeries or questionable
writings as the Dr. Kennedy, the
MoUneux, Rlce-Patrlck and Harry
Thaw cases.
Many of the most
prominent wills and legacies Involv
ing millions of dollars, but containing
some clement of doubt in the wrting
or signatures, .have passed through
Mr. Lewis' hands for final decision, as
have many Important documents
bearing upon national and Interna
tional problems.

ASKS FOR INFORMATION


Editor, T H E EVENING NEWS:
Dear Sir: A great m ultitude of peo, pie have t h e i r curiosity aroused norvI ndays a b o u t press accounts and
i magazine articles conccm ing the an| cient Rosicrucian brotherhood es; pecially because so little can be
learned a b o u t them.
It is gathered from Lord Bulwer
Lyttons reference to th e Rosicrucians in his unique novel Zanoni
th a t this body of mystic* and philoso
phers have always had n hale of glory
and honor around them and many of
th e writers today re f e r to the Rosicru
cians with g r e a t respect and high osteeni notw ithstanding t h e fact t h a t
some encyclopedias as su m e the a t t i
tude that t h e organization was only
a emporary one and of an awesome
nature.
In decking to learn more about
them, it h a s been found that the o r
ganization is established in all lands,
operating u n d e r the s t r a n g e name of
AMORC and th a t there ere branches
in the principal cities of the United
States, and an Egyptian temple *>f
g reat wealth and power in Sao Jose,
Calif.
It

has

occurred

to

th e

w r ite r

whether any of your readers know |


the real meaning of the word AMORC
nnd what the real principles of the
Rosicrucians are ihat has held them
in such high esteem and given them
as an organization such an unusual
length of life through many c e n tu
ries.
Not being a religious cult ( f o r it is
found t h a t they aro highly regarded
by w riters of various denominations
and religious beliefs) there m ust be j
some g reat purpone br.ck of their !
work th a t ca rrie s them on, and since
the organization does not appear to
be commercial, political, or religioun,
it is evident they possess something
of value to humanity.
Any facts th a t can be added Lo
those already learned will be appre
ciated.
Very sinccrcly*
R. A. M.
