Special Bulletin no. 36

Wishing to address the changing outlook of the Klan due to increased membership. Because they did not foresee this many members to enroll, the Klan has shifted from being a sectional organization to a national one. Apparently many members have been receiving letters from Dr. C. Lewis Fowler, who is attempting to seize control of the Klan, but ultimately failed and now "banished in Canada and also in the United States". On the second day of their recent Klonvocation, Fowler visited Headquarters and took "supplies", so they changed the locks and keys. Makes mention that, according to an auditor's report, Fowler received funds in 1925 in the amount of %5, 785, $390.03 in travelling expenses, and an additional $368.72 advanced to him, as well as some $3,670.000 and another $11145.16 for expenses in 1926. Also, Fowler and Jos. Ballons collected money that was never handed over to the Treasurer, he stole their official stamp design, and claims that Mrs. Ballons is leader of the Ladies of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada despite it actually being Mrs. Lydia Barrett. The bulletin goes on to talk about his other allegations, such as his stealing official records from headquarters, not returning the "Second Order" upon his forced resignation, and spreads slander. The bulleting is signed by "J.S. Lord", Imperial Kligrapp.

Addressed to the "Faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen of the Ku Klux Canada". Clarifies that since Klonvocation at Toronto on Jan 17 and 18, that C. L.

Our answer is that to finance him for twenty-two months cost the Order $10, 995.84. As a commercial transaction, two had the worst of the bargain. If there are any more American Bodies and Souls for sale at the same price, we are not in the market!" Also mentions the "audacious" attempt of Fowler to associate with their "Number" and their "Great Seal" in order to "further deceive" and commit other "unprincipled activities". Ends with the statement: "My Body and Soul is not for sake, but I am truly and heartily in accord with every true Klansman and Klanswoman who is resolved that the K.K.K. of K. shall continue to stand for the advancement of those high Moral and Christian principles of our Constitution".

Special Bulletin #36

Begins with: "Loyalty to this Organization, to the Imperial Officers, and to the great Movement in which we are engaged, means much to each and every one of us. Let us try to accomplish more … In view of this, we must be continually on the alert, not only here at Headquarters, but at our Local Klaverns and Auxiliaries, to guard against the evil design of those not only from the outside, but from the inside of our own membership. We have nothing to fear from the outside if our membership is loyal to the duly elected and constituted officers, and supports them in their work for this great cause". Goes on to explain that they do not have the money for an "Investigation department", or a "Secret Service Department", so much depend on the cooperation of their membership. Further reiterates that dues must be handed in on time, and Units should be having regular meetings, reports should be handed in to Headquarters, and that the shipment of robes are coming in soon. Also mentions that 5 new units have been established in Nova Scotia, and that work in New Brunswick has been "satisfactory". Cautions: "Don't grumble -don't be a grouch -don't kill a meeting by knocking a Klansman. Don't say you cannot help or will not help, but be a booster. If your local Organization is not pledged 100 per cent, why not go to work to-day and make it 100 per-cent. This is the spirit that will make this Organization truly a success". Updates that Fowler is in New York, and lists names from different towns in Ontario that have been banished from the organization. In closing, "we trust that each Klansman may realise the truth contained in the resolution unanimously passed in the House of commons and in the Senate: 'Resolved, that as Canada is approaching the sixtieth anniversary of our founding as a Dominion the Parliament of Canada place on record its appreciation of the achievements of the Fathers of Confederation, and with united voice express the faith and confidence in the future of this our country and its development as a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations, owing allegiance to His Majesty the King. We trust that this commemoration will lend added inspiration to the patriotic fervor of our people, and afford a clearer vision of our aspirations and ideals, to the end that from sea to sea there may be developed a robust Canadian spirit, and in all things Canadian profounder national unity' ". Signed by George Marshall, Imperial Wizard, and J.S. Lord, Imperial Kligrapp.

Carr stated: "Our doors in the U.S. are open to Canadian Klansmen who operate their own Klans as Canadian organizations. our doors are closed to any group that follow banished Americans who are over here. The U.S. Klan does not know how to operate in Canada, doesn't want to operate in Canada, and isn't going to. And the U.S. klan doesn't want Canadians to have banished American Klansmen operate their klans for them". Goes on to update the Fowler is out of Canada for good, and that there is talks between the K.K.K. of K. and the Canadian Knights of the K.K.K. to amalgamate.

Klankraft is essential to the real Canadian gentlemen to-day, and to this and worth0while activities should be undertaken.
