South Bend, Ind., Feb. 12, 1912.
Mr. R. E. Marshall,
North Platto, Nebraska.
Enclosod find carbon copy from
my filos of tho lettor revoking tho
charter of tho North Platto Nest. This
letter was sent to Mr. Huffman in nn
envelope containing a five days return
direction, just liko tho envelope con
taining ths letter, and it wns never re
turned (o he undbubtly received it. Ho
subsequently wrote here complaining
thnt tho Nest should not bo required to
pay per capita tax for tho quarter end
ing September 30th, but that they
would mnko their report and pay tax if
they wore given credit for it for tho
quarter ending December 31st. Tho
Supremo Trustees considered tills and
finally agreed in the instance of your
Nest to allow that to be done, and
HuiTmnn was so imformed, and since
that timo he has never written to tho
Mr. Kesler never had a commission
ns n organizer from this order. Mr.
Hill did havo such n commission to or
ganize North Platte. Enclosed find n
blank such as was used for his com
mission, on tho back of which you will
find his contract as an organizer. I
havo uovor hoard from Mr. Hill since
tho North Platto Nest was Instituted.
As to when per capita tax was due, I
call your attention to Article 8 on page
0 of tho constitution
Shoriif of Lincoln County, Nebrasku. constitution is somewhat different from
that which was furnished you at the
time of your institution, because it has
since been amended, but this particular
article is just the same in the amend
ment as it was in the other nnd it will
show you in connection with Article 9
on tho same page that per capita tax
is payable for every member who paid
dues for any time during the quarter
ending September 30th; therefore.
thero was due per capita tax from your
Nest on all thoso members who paid
dues at any time between September
9th nnd September 30th, but as you
say, that matter is, in tho light of cir
cumstances, not so important ns that
blamo should bo placed whero it be
longs. Yours in O. O. O.
John W. Talbot.
November 27th, 1911.
Mr. G. S. HuiTmnn, North Platto, Neb.
Dear Brother: My attention has been
called by tho Supremo Secretary to
tho fact that since its charter was
Issued September9, 1911, and forwarded
to you nnd received by you, as shown
by tho registry receipt returned, many
communications have been addressed to
you nnd your President, Vice-President
and treasurer, relative to your Nest
and to the report which it should have
mndo on September 30th. To all of
these communications your officers havo
failod to make any responso and you
havo failed to make tho report of your
Nest, for which report blanks wore
forwarded to you on Soptombor 15th.
Therefore, I heroby rovoko tho chnrtor
of your Nest at North Platto, Nobras
ka. Yours in O. 0. 0.,
