THE COST OF PYTHIAN RANKS
Have They Been Oonferrcil for Less Than
the Minimum Sum ?
THE CHARGE OF A PYTHIAN PAPER ,
ICntabllKlmieiit of n I'ytlilan Iliirinl
Ground at Jit. Hope Allcgctl le-
faluatlon in the Order of
Modern Woodiuoii ,
The following editorial is clipped from the
August number ot the Knight Ertant , a
bright and newsy Pythian Journal published
in Chicago :
'Both the present grand chancellor of Ne
braska , it scorns , and bis deputies , Imvo been
conferring the three ranks of the order In
thai state for a sum less than the minimum
provided by law , on the occasion of the in-
Btitution of now lodges. This fact became
public property through the conviction of ono
of his deputies recently , nnd his suspension
the latter was vacated by the grand chancel
lor , possibly on the theory that n fellow-feel
ing makes us wondrous kind.
"Tho ti ! e is now approaching for the ses
sion of the grand ledge of Nebraska , the ro-
eults of which will bo looked for with n good
deal of interest , for twenty years the order in
Unit state had at the head of ii-s attain the
brightest men In I'ythlnn knighthood west of
the river , men of strong standing socially ,
men who commanded respect every vvhcro hi
the supreme jurisdiction , so that Nebraska
had made a name and a fame unsurpassed , In
that regard , by any grand ledge : the names
of K. K. French , George II. Grader , J. J ,
Moncll and J. S. Shropshire had a national
standing In the order that made the grand
ledge of Nebraska respected. With the last
cession in that state came a clean , -umolent-
ing sweep ; us with a sponge , the names of
tlioso whom wO were wont to nssociato with
the rise , progress anil success of Nebraska
were wiped oil the roll , and if all the relia
ble statements arc to bo credited , this result
> \as accomplished by methods by-no means
creditable to the victors , methods which
they must have imported from the sucker
"With the personnel of the now adminis
tration the Knight Krrant has no acquaint
ance , therefore no fault to llnd , except it bo
that the manner of their advent. Judging
from similar experiences , gixvo hope but
slight promise election methods ns unfail
ingly bespeak the oftlcluls ns seed the crop ,
liciicc , while this Journal will jlekl to them
their Just meed of praise for what the results
evidence , ItUll look forward to the coining
session with much interest. That , which one
man , orsetof men , can accomplish others
can do , nnd it remains to bo seen whether or
not the change In Nebraska lu ISS'J brought
with it betterment. "
Urand Chancellor Macfnrlnnd was asked
what truth tucrowas lu the above statement
that the ranks of the order had been con
ferred for less than the minimum fee provided
bylaw on the occasion of the Institution of
now lodges. Ho replied that there was no
truth lu the statement. ' 'The supreme ledge
lias llxotl the minimum fee nt $10 , and It
rests with the grand lodges to Increase that
nmount as tliuy sco lit , \\lth the aiirovnlof ] [
the supreme lodge. The grand ledge of Ne
braska has llxed the minimum ut S U for sub-
ordlnatolodgai , I have hold that boforoa
lodge U instituted It is not a subordinate
but is a part of the grand ledge anil Is , there
fore , working under the law ot the supreme
lodgo. This latter body has Hxcd the mini ,
inuin fee at $10. and It is lawful to confer the
degrees upon charier members of now lodges
for that amount , Mhieh has been dono. Alter
the ledge is chartered tlio fcot must bo & ! 0 as
provided by the constitution prescribed for
eubordinuto lodges. " Some of the leading
expounders of the Pythian law hi this city
take issue with the grand chancellor on this
joint , and hold that , as the grand ledge
liaa expressly provided that "tho minimum
fee in this stnto for conferring the thrco
rnuksof the order snail bo f.'O , " there is no
power , except the grand lodge , which can
* luuigo this law and allow the conferring of the
tbreo rank * for a lost amount. This u a
point for the grand ledge to decide at its
meeting in October.
My rtlo lodge has taken the initiative In a
matter which is of great importance , to the
order and whicli will operate to the advan
tage of the entire fraternity in this city.
This is the securing of n burial ground for
the exclusive use of the order. In it will bo
burled members of the order and their fam
ilies. It Is a beautifully situated tract of
ground In Mount Hope cemetery. The lot is
triangular in sbapo nnd contains 22,000
square feet , allowing space for 5)0 graves
with u largo space In the center for the erec
tion of an appropriate monument. Back of
the triangle lifty lots hnvo been set apart for
those Pythiuns who desire to rest beside
their families la a , separate lot. Each ledge
will pay for the ground as it is required for
the burial of a member of that ledge or any
of his family.
The ofllclals of the Sioux City corn palace
have announced October a as Pythian day.
and have extended invitations to members of
the order to bo present on that day. Omaha
division No. 12 will attend hi a body on that
clay and Captain Ilnywanl has Invited nil
unattached Sir ICnlghts to accompany his di
vision on that occasion. Ho desires that nil
who wish to go should meet with the division
one night before the tlmo of
A Card front Ilonu Consul Hoot.
To the Editor of Tau DEC : Last Saturday
a dispatch was sent to the press from Chicago
cage representing that the Times had pub
lished nn Item to the effect that a suit was
instituted by Auditor Pavoy against .7. C.
Hoot , and that Root was a defaulter as presi
dent of the Modern \Voolmon for from ? ' 5- ,
000 to $10,000. A moro dastardly falsehood
was never before Imposed upon the public ,
and a greater wren ? could scarcely bo perpe
trated upon nn individual. Tno Times did
not publish such nn item , the suit accuses
nobody of default , is not a personal suit
njjalnst Hoot , but against the society , nnd
does 1'avoy no credit us its sponsor. Neither
Koot nor anybody else lias defrauded the or
der out of ono dollar , and the evidence thus
far produced will undoubtedly exonerate the
officers from any wrong whatever , OiioP.
L. AlcKiimto was removed from ofllcons
head physician of the "Woodmen f or Inatten
tion to his duties , for attempting to defraud
the order by bills for services not rendered ,
for pretended expenses which the oftlcors re
fused to pay , nnd for conspiring with confed
erates In nullify tlio charter iiml obtain n noiv
one , with himself and confederates substi
tuted In place of the legally elected ofllcers ,
nnd he has for several months since his re
moval been engaged In publishing incendiary ,
sensational nnd false statements calculated
and intended to destroy the reputation of the
ofllcorsand Injure the society itself.
The order of Modern Woodmen was
founded by .1. C. Uoot , who Is its principal
ofllcer , Anoutllfty thousand members have
been enrolled and nearly ono million of dollars
lars have been paid to the families of Its deceased -
ceased members , at u loss cost for insurance
nnd expenses than in nny other organization.
Only ono fraternal society In the United
States has * added inoro members during the
last year , und an insnna desire for revenge ,
Inspired by hatred and vindlctlveness , has
been evident in the eTorts ( made against Mr ,
Hoot and his olllcial cabinet. This lust ven
omous item was Intended to Imvo an effect
upon the olcttiou of ofllcers soon to transpire ,
but will , or ought to , provo n boomerang to
expose its cowardly author and instigator.

The supreme court of Iowa handed down
nn opinion lu the Philips' ' life | Insurance case
which was nn utllrmancoof Judge Preston's
decision. The decision Is nn Important one ,
mid affects a great many polices of Insurance
in the A. O. U.V. . and other assessment or
ganizations , At the tlmo of his death lr. I.
11. Philips held nn Insurance certlllcato hi
tlio \ , O. U. W. for S OOO which was pay-
nblo to his "legal heirs. " Ho left surviving-
him n widow and one minor daughter. 1I..M.
Carpenter was appointed the guardian of the
daughter Bessio. The widow contended that
she was entitled to bt least one-third of the
Ufa insurance. This was disputed by the
guardian of llesslo , and ono-half. of tue money
was by agreement placed in the hands of the
ilorlc of the district court until the contro
versy should bo determined In
the couitu. The widow then
brought suit against the guardian
and the clerk of the court for money thus do
posited. The case was tried by Judge Pros.
ton in December , 1883 , nnd ho decided that
when a child or children of the deceased sur
vived , the widow was not n ' 'legal heir" of
her husband , and consequently not entitled
to any of the money In controversy. Mrs.
Philips appealed from the decision to the supreme
premo court. The court of lns rcsoit ren
dered an opinion afllrmlng the decision of the
court below , nnd thus granting nil of the In
surance money to the daughter. A great many
policies in the A. O. U.V. . hnvo In the past
been written as Dr. Philips' was , and in
many Instances , on settlement , one-third of
the proceeds has been unlawfully paid to the
widow. The decision will have the eJTect of
causing a general change in the usual word
ing of such certificates whore the assured in

Most everybody wuo takes interest in the
Masonic fraternity , has seen and hometimes
heard of R. W. Uro. John J. Gorman , whoso
services hnvo made him prominent in this
grand Jurisdiction , especially as district dep
uty , trustee of the hall and asylum , chairman
of the late Masonic fair , and now grand treas
urer , says the New York Sunday Times.
His well proportioned nnd rounded fig
ure , with n liuely-shapcd head , cheeks as rosy
as that of a young girl , with whitened locks
and chin whiskers , is familiar to those of our
brethren throughout the state who como an
nually to intend the sessions of the grand
lodge , and to whom ho has read many a peed
report and given his rino advice. Ho has also
becumo familiar to a different class of human
ity than those who holdalllllationto ourgreat
brotherhood , andttiosoaro the evil doers , for
ho is n respected and feared , though just
Judge , of the police courts.
