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.

"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"

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.

Letter to "Hanean"

Folded letter. Reads: "My Dear Hanean… hoping you are all well as we are… has been very cold and… very dull here at present. The shops are only working three and four days a week. There is a lack of cutting… I started about three weeks ago to work for my old boss again... I do not know how long it will last as he has not got many on hand. He is paying me the same as he was paying me. Four dollars a day. The other men is only receiving three dollars. I don't let on to the other men what I get. There are a number looking for work everyday. We got some maple syrup... and as soon as we can get ale send if we can. You will have to send the can back again, now and next spring as I will have to refill it. The syrup had a gallons so that is from dollars... I have forgotten the price of them. I know it was pour "something", We will say four and a quarter. Then you told me you would of liked to get him more apple trees and a plow... I told you to get them and I will pay for them. Blanche has just received your letter. Also a card from myself. She was saying she would like more gallons... I do not think we can get it... even writing this couple of days where is more coming in. So I do not think we will be able to get it... saving as you are waiting to get the trees in the tall and I will pay for them as I have promised two apples and one pear tree... sending you back his dollars and a held and I will pay fifty cents more to it and make it even three dollars. The syrup and the extra fifty cents will pen for the brushes. I suppose you have got all your liquor in this time... was saying in the first letter that she hoped it would all be gone before... think there is worse things than a bit of liquor. I just got in a letter around hundred dollars worth, expect to get in two more shipments this week. Won't forget and let it run too long for then you will not be able to get it. You will see other people drinking the food stuff... You know there is never anything wanted in this house from spending a little money a liquor and she knows. She has never wanted for anything from the little money you spent on liquor and has never made me poor. You know there is more... Those revolvers... liquor just look at as the men who went in... and held up... all those men with revolvers... I hold up those men in Niagara without revolvers and look how... and from these had working men and just all the men who were held up and right beside you in Toronto this Winter. Is that not worse than a little liquor. Then is the things that a poor man who is not... liquor are he cannot get it, it is too expensive and he cannot... and get it like the man who sends for it now is not because his family wants for anything to eat. So don't forget... before it is too late. If you have not got the money I want... He was here one day... Told him they would do whatever I do. He came up to place where I was working and wanted to know what I was going to do. And I told him I was going to work for liquor. He said how and I told him my father raised six boys and none of them are drunkards. I told him there was lots worse than a bit of liquor, he said he knows it. I told there I always keep a... in the house... Like most I even take in a couple of spoonfuls. I always keep it for sickness here must be going to be a lot of sickness ahead to drink up all the liquor I have now. So then he went away and did not say anything more to me. So didn't wait too long and have to take value when you see older people taking a drink. I came to the conclusion none of us are going to." End of letter, signed "Archer".
