    "The roisterous spirit of the new lodge, expressed by the slogan "Credo Quia Absurdum" ( I believe because it is absurd) and by the Constitution of the Order which said that "all members are officers and all offices are of equal indignity", had a tremendous appeal to the miners, who thought that hoaxing a tenderfoot was the greatest of sports. Therefore, when the hewgag would bray, signifying that a Poor Blind Candidate had appeared in camp and was ready to have the veil of ignorance lifted from his eyes by having revealed to him the great truths and secrets of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E CLAMPUS VITUS, the brethren hurriedly gathered from far and near for the merriment."
