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.

Bulletin No. 43

Explaining the need to increase membership and "develop a nobler manhood". Mentions also that they have received "public recognition from the K.K.K. of U.S.A., which Grand Dragon G.E. 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. Explains further that a "nobler manhood" is developed by "cultivating the ideals that build for higher things. Klankraft is essential to the real Canadian gentlemen to-day, and to this and worth0while activities should be undertaken. At this period it has become easier to obtain intoxicating liquors, and we wish to emphatically state from Imperial headquarters that no intoxicating drinks shall be permitted within our Klaverns, or on our Open Air Fields where Demonstrations are held". Emphasizes also the need to show one's Imperial Pass Card to prove he is a Klansman when gaining admittance. Signed J.S. Lord, Imperial Kligrapp, and George Marshall, Imperial Wizard.
