He was a native of England, but emigra'ed to Baltimore at an early age, and was In tbe KVd year of hla age at tbe time of hia death. From the time of the first Inception of the Order, Mr. Wildev has taken a deep Interest In lt? welfare. He was the first Grand Sire of tbe Grand Lodge of tbe United States, having served In that office from 18*25 to 18-13, and filled all the prominent offices of the Order, and throughout hia long life was cherished In grateful remembrance by the Order. He lived to see the Order In which he took so great Interest expand until Its benefits and influences were seen and felt throughout almost the entire length and breadth of the North American continent The Sun says: Tbe officers of tbe Grand I^odge of Maryland. Jerusalem Encampment and William Tell Lodge, of each of which the deceased was a member, assembled on Saturday evening, and made arrangements for tbe funeral, which will doubtless be n very imposing one. It was resolved that the body be taken to the Hall tbls morning, and laid out in state In the large saloon, which will be open to the public from 0 o'clock a. m , until 4 o'clock this afternoon. Tbe funeral will take place from the Hall, at lOo'clock^o morrow (Tuesday) morning, with appropriate services A resolution was adopted Inviting the several Encampments, and all tbe surbotdinnte Lodges cf the city, as well as those at a distance, who can do so, to attend the funeral in a body. The Order In this jurisdiction will doubtless be represented at tbe funeral by delegations, It lielng understood that meetings will be held this evening to make the necessary arrangements.
