"TEACHINGS of Our Ark of the Covenant"

Titled "Teaching: Our Ark of the Covenant". Outlines the "Ark of Our Covenant" that Klanspeople have entered into, which contains: (1) The Bible, "The symbol of, and foundation of, all our liberties. Take the Bible out of Anglo-Saxon civilization and we are ruined. The Bible is the Magna Charta of our civilization. We solemnly resolve to keep it so -to keep it both in all our public schools and homes. We warn all papists and aliens to keep unholy hands off the bible. This is no maudling sentiment. We mean just that. We acknowledge the Bible as God's gift to men and as the source of all our light and life"; (2) The Flag, "The fled is the symbol of British idealism, of British unity, of British life, is the symbol of that which separates and differentiates us from all the other nations and peoples of the earth. It is an expression of Anglo-Saxon, historical achievement and is, therefore, sacred to us. Unholy, alien hands must be kept off that flag and all it represents. The Anglo-Saxon race is essentially, racially, and fundamentally Protestant. Hence, the Flag must express, and does express, the Protestant spirit and viewpoint of life"; (3) The Sword, "The sword is a symbol of defense. If there are ten million Klansmen in the world, then ten million swords will leap from their scabbards in defense of Anglo-Saxon, Protestant institutions. The Klan as an organization is set up to save the World from the sword, for if we do not settle these great problems by intelligent discussion and exchange of ideas, they will be settled by our children with the sword"; (4) The Water, "dedication fluid, is symbolic of Klannishness. In the exercise of an honourable Klannishness we propose to solve many of our problems. We are covenanted together to practice four kinds of Klannishness (a) socially (b) physically (c) morally (d) vocationally. This covers the whole round of our lives. [...] We must practise Klannishness -we must be true to our covenant. A member of this Order who refuses to practice Klannishness thereby proves his unworthiness and makes his advancement in Klancraft impossible. This is the acid test to be applied to each member"; (5) The Fiery Cross, "both a holy symbol and a positive challenge. The Cross is a symbol of "LIGHT" and "SACRIFICE". Our motto is "NONSILBA SED ANTHAR". We "serve" and "sacrifice" for the right. The Fiery Cross is a symbol of sacrifice for the right. It is a challenge to service. These were are sworn to protect with all they mean -the ideals, traditions, institutions and customs they represent"; Document signed by "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Kligrapp Lewis Fowler".

Addressed to "All Genii, Kind and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Citizens of the Invisible Empire, Knights (and Ladies) of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada"

Addressed to "my faithful and esteemed Klansmen and Klanswomen". In light of C. Fowler's messages, must now look to the more vital issues at hand. Reads, "…with upturned faces, written over with a deeper trust, with a kindlier eye, and a warmer beat of the heart, realizing as never before that in the Invisible Empire are the forces, the issues and the life that abides forever". Continues to quote Tennyson, "I dreamed that stone by stone I reared a sacred flame, a temple, neither pagoda, mosque, nor church, but a loftier, simpler, always open-doored to every breath from Heaven, and Truth and Peace, and Love and Justice came and dwelt therein". Further quotes "To live as gently as I can,/ To be no matter where --a man;/ To take what comes of good or ill,/ And cling to faith and honor still;/ To do my best and let that stand,/ The record of my brain and hand;/ And then should failure come to me,/ Still work and hope for victory". Wishes Fowler continued success. Also notes that the Imperial Wizard is in poor health, but wishes to show signs of convalescence. Signed the Knights of Ku Klux Klan of Kanada.

Addressed to "All Genii, Kind and Major Kleagles, Kleagles and Citizens of the Invisible Empire, Knights (and Ladies) of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada"

Reads: "It becomes my duty to-day to send you a message that tugs at my very heart strings. This message is one of farewell to you, since I am retiring from the position of Imperial Kligrapp of the organization. There is always a feeling of gratitude as well as of responsibility in the heart of the man, who through Providence, is permitted to bring any institution into existence. I shall always have the you and the pride of being the father of the Ku Klux Klan in Canada. It is the child of my heart's love, and of course, this love can never be diminished or the union broken. I go, believing I have made a worthy contribution to our Anglo Saxon cause and to Protestantism. This is some measure lessens my regret at going. My world has been done --my contributions made --the movement is well and powerfully established --the foundation made secure! The organization has produced many great souls and will yet produce an adequate and sincere, and able leadership. Trust these leaders and uphold and co-operate with them. This is my parting charge. I came to Canada for the purpose of setting up this movement. I came to give to it the very best in my life. That I have fulfilled my vow, I believe no one will question. All the while I have known that at the proper time, the movement should be turned over to worthy men and women in Canada, who have espoused the cause and accepted the obligation o carrying on the work. [...] I have the pleasure of realizing that we have many thousands of members who are faithful and true, scattered over the county all the way form Halifax to Vancouver. That these Klansmen and Klanswomen will "CARRY ON" to success, and greet victory, I have not the slightest doubt. My associations with his Lordship, J. MacNab Wilson, Imperial Wizard and with the other members of the Imperial Kloncilium and with the thousands of our citizens has been of such a nature as to bring to my soul, memories to be cherished forever. I part reluctantly with these fellowships. It grieves me to even think that I shall not likely see you again soon [...] I bid you God speed as you go forward in the great task of building this great cause in Canada. I charge you, faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen BE TRUE, BE LOYAL, STICK TOGETHER, PRACTISE THE PRINCIPLES of our great cause, ESCHEW PETTY JEALOUSIES, and DIFFERENCES, for your opportunities are all but infinite and your obligations are very great. As I go form you, conscious of my many shortcomings here in your midst, I earnestly solicit your prayers and a continuation of that blessed fraternity and friendship which I have had from every one of you. Let nothing divide or disturb your course. Our enemy is united through fear and external force. Our Unity must be from choice and deep moral conviction. Practice Clannishness and secrecy and keep your eye on the pole star of our great cause. May God bless the Cause and you". Signed by C. Lewis Fowler, Imperial Kligrapp.

Bulletin #21

Title reads: "To All Geni, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles, Imperial Representatives, and Citizens of the Invisible Empire". Reads "Greeting". In general mentions there have been some reports of certain Klan groups that attempted an organization under the leadership "of those who were banished from our ranks for cause has a Charter for their organization", and that this report is false, as they have no Klan Charter and "will never have". Apparently they got a charter for a club called "The Equal Rights League" which "means absolutely nothing". Mentions the Klan movement which is worldwide and is to "compass the Globe wherever White, Gentile, Protestant people live. Nothing can stop or hinder it. The Klan movement is the hope of the white race, is the rainbow of promise for world-wide Protestantism and is the only instrument produced hitherto that does and can guarantee success to our cause". Mentions as well that their increased growth requires more donations, and where those might be sent. Also, the Imperial Klaliff is on a tour in New Brunswick, and planning visits in Winnipeg, Regina, and Vancouver. Cautions to "watch Rome and study Rome at the present. The papists are using every strategy within their reach to get political control in Canada. Their untaxed property is a real menace, their school system a tragedy, and their bi-linguicism a curse to Canada [...] We must have National Unity -we must have a great "National" army of Klan workers. Let us regard those who suggest division anywhere at any time, under any condition as enemies to our great cause". Lastly notes to practice "Klanishness in every Klan", to "stand back of Klans-people in business", to remember that the Klan is not a "Lodge" but a "Movement". Signed "I. T. S.U. B., C Lewis Fowler, Imperial Kligrapp".
