Bulletin #22: Special Official Imperial Document

Title reads: "To All Geni, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles, Imperial Representatives, and Citizens of the Invisible Empire". Claims they have a document signed by J.H. Hawkins who was banished from the organization in June 1924. It states that "an amalgamation has been formed between the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada and the Ku Klux Klan of the British Empire, and a meeting of the Imperial Kloncilium will be held" on march 27. Document further states that all members should lay aside all "personal ambitions" and be ready "to work in the interest of Klancraft". The bulletin responds to this by saying personal ambition was already laid aside months ago, and they see Hawkins note as a "ruse entered into for the purpose of accomplishing the early ambitions and purposes of these discredited and banished men". In general claims the Fowler's statement is false, as there has been no amalgamation, and never will be, and that they can never restore the banished people because they have already proven themselves unworthy. "This organization, the K.K.K. of K. has consistently for the sake of our great cause taken over without cost to them, such men and women as were deceived, and gotten into these spurious movements. Accordingly the Imperial Wizard, the Imperial Kligrapp, and the entire membership at Sarnia, London, and Stratford of the Hawkins group were taken into this body together with a goodly number of others in the four or five communities in which the organization operates. [...] [this] organization has been right and God sent from the beginning. It was O. Elliott who on June 24 accused J.H. Hawkins of (1) treachery [...] (2) failure to account for funds, (3) disloyalty to the organization, and (4) violation of his Oath of Allegiance [...] We are given the facts to our entire membership and we are a unit and are prepared to show up discredited and banished, personally ambitious, parties, and to see that they shall not at anytime, anywhere, further deceive the White, Gentile, Protestant people of our fair Canada. They are banished. They belong to the alien world. Let us deal with them accordingly". Signed the Invisible Empire of the Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, By order of the Imperial Wizard, C Lewis Fowler, Imperial Kligrapp.

Greetings Announcement

Title reads: "To All Geni, King and Major Kleagles, Kleagles, Imperial Representatives, and Citizens of the Invisible Empire". Reads as "Greeting": (I) "In Union there is strength. Anything to the contrary scatters abroad. A real united Klankraft in Canada is now being born. The real Klan is coming into being. The recent events are not to be regretted. There is a divine Providence back of an in it all. In the stress the real worth or lack of it has revealed itself. Those who compose the Klan are true, real, sincere and they came into the Klan because they knew that we must find an adequate remedy at once or we are doomed as Protestants in the world. We now know where we are. Those who sought to rise to a place of leadership, or shall we say "Dictatorship", over the abused reputations of others have been revealed and the Klan has been saved from them forever. no real Klansman will follow them. The real Klan is now taking definite shape in Canada"; (II) Mentions the amalgamation of the 3 main Klan groups in Canada, "Now that our house has been purged by Providence of all dead timber and that the old ship has had all the barnacles scraped off we are ready to set to sea"; (III) Urging Klansmen to abstain "from all the bitterness and from all perfidy. Those who are responsible for the recent disturbances have tried to build the cause upon hate, prejudice, slander, narrowness and false report. They alone are the sufferers. The real Klan is going on just the same. Thus they have put themselves outside our realm and outside the fold of Klankraft"; (IV) Mentions new features to be adopted, such as appointing a new "Imperial Representative" to go as a "Kourier to the Klans, a teacher or messenger whose duty it shall be to teach Klankraft and to help in all the details of the forward movement and work"; (V) Includes the following statement from Dr. Fowler: "Faithful Klansmen and Klanswomen [...] I was to turn over the higher Orders. That promise was also given in good faith. But no sooner than my back was turned than certain parties who had been at work ever since last June to undermine me, began a campaign of vile slander against me seemingly hoping to elevate themselves by destroying me. Well, I am not the kind that sits down under such perfidy. I lost all confidence and of course refused to deliver the other Orders. It was a gracious Providence that saved them from such unworthy hands. There was a fiasco meeting held in January. In that I have absolutely no confidence. The same ugly spirit prevails. We cannot build the Klan about such. Better a thousand times that we disband now than that we try to build that way. We have no room for those who thinks only of self. The key to our holy cause is "NON SILBA SED ANTHAR". To these principles I have been true. I have kept the faith, slanderous, false, purposefully wicked statements to the contrary notwithstanding. My record is before the members. They know I defy the world to show to the contrary. For this reason I am remaining, for the present, with the continuing, the original Klan until it can go forward without me. I have no ambitions, save the building of the real Klan in Canada. I shall give every ounce of my strength to the worthy men and women who have now been chosen to do the work in Canada. I have made the Orders available for them. As soon as the Imperial Officers are ready to take over the work, I must go on to another wider field in the great Klan struggle, for as you know the Klan movement is international. I bid you trust the leaders now before you. You are the only original, official body now functioning in Canada. All others must soon pass out of existence. I am I.T.S.U.B. C Lewis Fowler".; (VI) "Let all Klans declare at once just what they are going to do. If you want all of Klankraft, then come on with us, declare your loyalty to the Headquarters that has the message and the Orders and the program". Bottom signed "The Ku Klux Klan of Kanada, Imperial Headquarters".

Reads: "I find that too many men are being admitted into our Order without their Klectoken or Donation being paid and in many cases these men do not attend meetings or take any further interest in Klankraft. This method is roving a detriment to Klankraft and must be discontinued at once. Effective at once King Kleagles, Kleagles, and Exalted Cyclops are instructed to see that the Obligation or Secret work is not suffered upon any applicant until the Klectoken or Donation has been paid in full and dues for the first quarter or remaining period of such quarter has been paid. You will t once notify all members that when they bring eligible with them to our meeting that they must inform such eligible that the donation is ten dollars and the dues $1.50 per quarter or 50 cents per month [...] and in case this is not done the member bringing them to the meeting will be held personally responsible for such donation and dues".
