Modern Woodmen Withdraw.
The Modern Woodmen of America has
withdrawn Its membership from the Na
tional Fraternal congress, a federated orga
nization with about fifty affiliated societies.
This action has been contemplated by Head
Consul A. R. Talbot and other officials of
the Woodmen for several months, practi
cally since the last serslon of the congress
at Buffalo. August lis7, when by a close
vote a resolution was carried which com
mitted the affiliated societies to the policy
of asking state legislatures to enact a law
providing a minimum tuble of assessment
rates, to be charged by all societies alike.
. Head Consul Talbot declares that the en
actment of such a measure as Is contem
plated would require the collection of as
sessments at least 2o per cent higher than
the death rate demands at this time. The
Woodmen officials are discussing the ad
lsahllity of forming a new federation of
societies not satisfied with the action of
the National Fraterral congress.
