The Pythian Star, June 1914

Australia Lodge, No.1, of Melbourne, represents the introduction of our Order in the Antipodes.
It was instituted March 16, 1914, by Deputy Supreme Chancellor Edward Millhouser, formerly of New York.

The Lodge started with forty-eight charter members. After its institution, the lodge adopted a series of
resolutions which included the following: We want to further testify to the fact that this Order is today,
and that there is a freedom of speech, a democracy of membership, and an opportunity for education,
not found in the work of any other Order with which we may be acquainted.
