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".

"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".
