It is with deep and profound regret that this Grand Lodge has 
learned of the sad bereavement of P. G. M. and G. Rep. elect to 
Sovereign Grand Lodge, Bro. Will H. Talbott, in the recent death 
of his daughter, and also of the present dangerous illness of his 
beloved wife, which latter cause prevents his attendance at this 
session. Therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we, as the Representatives to, and members of this 
Grand Lodge, extend to Bro. Talbott, our sincere and fraternal 
sympathy, in the sorrows through which he has passed, in the 
death of his daughter, and in his present deep anxiety and trial 
through which he is passing, occasioned by the illness of his wife, 
and that we all, with one heart and mind, hope and pray for her 
speedy restoration to health. 

Resolved, further. That the Grand Secretary be requested to trans- 
mit forthwith to Bro. Talbott, a copy of these resolutions under the 
seal of the Grand Lodge. 

Which, on motion, was adopted unanimously by a 
standing vote. 

The Grand Officers' semi-annual reports were then sub- 
mitted, as follows :

At the November session, 1891, of this Grand Body, the Grand 
Master and Grand Secretary were ordered to draw a warrant for 
one-twelfth of the amount derived from dues from Subordinate 
Lodges each six months, payable to the Treasurer of the Odd Fel- 
lows' Home. 

At the November session, 1894, the Committee on Finance and 
Accounts recommended that this resolution be rescinded, and that 
the Secretary be directed to calculate the amount due the Odd Fel- 
lows' Home, and that an account be opened with said Odd Fellows' 
Home, giving it credit for the amount then due under that resolu- 
tion, to be paid when the location is definitely settled and the build- 
ing is under construction. This was referred to a special committee, 
(see p. 2168 Nov. session, 1894), which reported that the Ti'ustees of 
the Home had agreed to waive any claim under the resolution re- 
ferred to until such time in the future as the necessities thereof may 
require, and until further notice of the Grand Lodge, and that no 
further sum of money be set aside under the resolution until that 
time, which resolution was concurred in by this Grand Body. (See 
proceedings Nov. session, 1894, p. 2209-2210.) 

The amounts appropriated by the resolution of the November 
session, 1891, were never, in fact, drawn from the treasury, but were 
lost with the other Lodge funds in the Indianapolis National Bank. 
There is now unpaid to the Home under this resolution from this 
Grand Body $4,200, and the Trustees of the Home now have five 
acres of ground near Crown Hill Cemetery, north of this city, upon 
which to build the Home, and state that if* this Grand Lodge will 
pay the above sum, the Home can be built and put in operation this 
year. 1 submit the correspondence from Bro. J. B Kenner, Presi- 
dent of the Home, for your consideration, believing that your gen- 
erous impulses will provide for this noble enterprise all that a pru- 
dent regard for the interests of the Order in the present condition 
of our Grand Lodge treasury will permit. 



ORPHANS HOME. 

In January, 1893, a number of Odd Fellows and Daughters of 
Rebekah at South Bend established a home for the orphans of 
Indiana Odd Fellows, and in August, 1893, it was incorporated 
under the laws of the State. Thus far a noble work has been 
done. There are now seven Odd Fellows' orphans receiving the 



2312 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

loving care and tender attention of faithful Daughters of Rebekah 
in that institution. 

An effort was made to secure subscriptions from the Subordinate 
and Rebekah Lodges of the State to insure the permanent success 
of this most worthy enterprise. So far lour Subordinate and 
Rebekah Lodges have responded and the subscriptions thus made 
have only guaranteed the payment of 1317 per annum for the 
support of these wards of ours. 

In April I received a communication from Mrs. Henderson, the 
secretary of the association, that has so generously given time and 
money to make this home a success, stating that they must give it 
up while they could honestly settle all its obligations and that on 
25th of April they would wind up its affairs. Believing that|the 
43,000 Odd Fellows of this good old State, who pledged themselves 
at our altars to provide for the orphans of those who in life bore 
their share in the great work of Odd Fellowship, would not permit 
these fatherless babes to want for proper care, I requested those 
in charge of this benevolent institution to postpone its abandon- 
ment until this Grand Body should have an opportunity to express 
itself, and this was done. I lay the interests of these little ones on 
your hearts and commit their future to your fraternal care. The 
correspondence, the articles of incorporation and by-laws, and all 
other information in my possession will be submitted to the proper 
committee. 

REBEKAH ASSEMBLY. 

Pursuant to the order of this Grand Body at its last annual 
communication, your Grand Master and Grand Secretary prepared 
a charter for a Rebekah Assembly for Indiana, and it was presented 
and a Rebekah Assembly organized in this hall on the 21st of May, 
1895, and it begins its career under the most flattering conditions. 

DISTRICT MEETINGS. 

Four district meetings were authorized for the current year. 
One of these was held at Rushville, on the 8th day of May, which 
was a decided success in every respect. A very large number of 
Lodges were represetited. The whole city welcomed the visitors 
and treated them with generous hospitality. A grand street parade 
was a feature that excited great interest within, as well as without 
the Order. The degree work, both in the Rebekah and subordi- 
nate branches was of a high order, and the meeting will, no doubt, 
be of great value in that section of the State. 

DECISIONS. 

In response to questions from Lodges and members, a great 
many decisions have been made — too many to embody them in this 
report. One of them involves a question that should be settled by 
this Grand body. 

Is a Past Grand of an old Lodge, who has never served as 
Vice Grand, eligible as Representative in this body ? 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2313 

Under Section 3, Article I, of the Constitution of this Grand 
Lodge it is expressly provided that he is not, while in Section 1, 
Chapter XIX, General Laws, the only qualification required is 
that he shall be a Past Grand. 

At the May session, 1887, page 1182, the question was presented 
to the Legislative Committee of this body as to whether a Noble 
Grand who had not filled the office of Vice Grand would be eligible 
as Representative. The committee, citing Section 5, Chapter 3 of 
the General Laws, held that he would be, but the section of the 
Constitution above cited was not referred to in the decision, and 
believing the provision of the Constitution and the section of the 
General Laws are in conflict that the Constitution would control, 
I held the Noble Grand under such circumstances would not be 
eligible as Representative, and submit it to you for your approval 
or disapproval. 

The large financial and fraternal interests submitted for your ac- 
tion at this session of this Grand Body will demand careful consid- 
eration. The rights of members and of Lodges will be adjudicated 
by you. Let us approach the discharge of these important duties 
with a determination that justice and mercy shall both obtain, and 
that our great Order shall reap some benefit from this meeting. 

M. A. CHIPMAN, 

Grand Master. 



On motion of W. H. Leedy, P. G. Master, the following 
resolution was adopted : 

Resolved, That that part of the Grand Master's report, Lodges 
instituted and resuscitated, be referred to the Committee on Peti- 
tions and Applications; that part refei'iing to the institution of Re- 
bekah Lodges and Rebekah Assembly, to Committee on Degree of 
Rebekah ; that part I'eferring to Odd Fellows' Home, Orphans' 
Home and District Meetings, to Committee on State of the Order; 
that part referring to decisions of the Grand Master to the Legisla- 
tive Committee. 

GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

To the Grand Lodge I. O. 0. F. of Indiana : 

I herewith submit my report for the term ending December 31, 
1894. From the statistics presented it will be seen that we have a 
slight gain in membership, which is very gi'atifying when we con- 
sider the financial crisis through which we have passed. For the 
year ending the same period, our net gain over all losses by suspen- 
sion and otherwise is seven hundred and seven ! 

Our relief report for the term may be summed up as follows : 
Two thousand three hundred and fourteen brothers, and one hundred and 
eighty-six widowed families have been relieved. The sum of $51,- 
002.15 has been paid for the relief of brothers; $2,410.78 for the 
relief of widowed families ; $254.99 for educating orphans; $13,960.40 
for burying the dead, and $5,239.71 for other charitable purpose,s

GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2317 



CONCLUSION. 

In reviewing the work of the term, it will be seen that there has 
been no loss, but a slight gain. Since the beginning of the year 
there has been a great activity among the Lodges, and from present 
indications we anticipate a large gain for the term ending in June, 
1895. With returning prosperity in the various branches of Indus 
try, Odd Fellowship will continue its onward march in the fore- 
front of the fraternal institutions of the land. Invoking the con- 
tinued smiles of a kind and indulgent Providence, let us go forward 
in our work of mutual relief and love, and a rich and golden 
harvest will be the fruitage of our labors.

B. F. Foster, 

Grand Secretary.

W. H. Leedy, P. G. Rep., from the Committee on Leg- 
islation, submitted the following 

REPORT: 

To the Gran,/ Lody,', I. O. O. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on Legislation, at the November session, 1894, 
(pages 2182-2183), were instructed to amend Section 13, Chapter 
IV, of the General Laws by adding the following: 

" It shall be the duty of each Subordinate Lodge to enact such 
by-law for the enforcement of the provisions of this section as it 
may deem most efficient, and such by-law shall be the only law for 
the enforcement thereof. 

"Should any member be dissatisfied with the enforcement of 
said by law in any case, he may appeal to a Committee of Past 
Grands in the same manner as provided for in Section 15 of this 
Chapter." 

By an inadvertance your committee overlooked your instruc- 
tion, but take this, the first opportunity possible, to comply there- 
with. Therefore, in compliance with and respect for your instruc- 
tions, we recommend the adoption of the said amendment. 

Which was concurred in. 

J. B. Cockrura, G. Rep., submitted the following resolu- 
tion : 

To the Grand Lodge, J. 0. O. F., of Indiana : 

Resolved, That this Grand Lodge tender to the Grand Lodge 
Knights of Pythias of Indiana the use of this Grand Lodge Hall 
for its annual convocation in June, 1895, and that we extend to it 
our best wishes and fraternal greeting. 



Which on motion, was concurred in. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2321 

J. B. Keuner, from the Standing Comniittee on Print- 
ing submitted the following 

REPORT: 

To the ara,ul l.uUj,; I. ( >. <). F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on Printing, in obedience to law, hereby report 
the proceedings of the committee since the last annual session of 
the Grand Lodge, 

The contract for printing entered into by the committee on 
December 14, 1893, for one year having expired, your committee 
prior to the said 14th of December, 1894, advertised in two of 
the leading newspapers of Indianapolis, that on December 19, 1894, 
they would receive bids for the printing of the Grand Lodge, and 
all stationery and supplies, and on said 19th of December, we met 
and opened the bids, and finding the bid of the Baker-Randolph 
Co., was the lowest and best bid. we contracted with them for one 
year from December 19, 1894, to December 19, 1895, in writing, and 
have their contract now in our possession. We believe we have a 
very favorable contract for the Grand Lodge. 

We have examined the material that has entered into the sup- 
plies, stationery and printing, and find it fully up to contract and 
of good serviceable quality. 

Your committee are gratified to state that the bills allowed for 
printing, stationery and supplies furnished since our last November 
session is very light, amounting to only $522.19. This is very light 
for that period ; but we can not estimate on these matters saiely 
except we take a year, and possibly several years, as the work laps 
over; but we are firmly of the opinion that by our new system we 
shall be able to save money, and relieve our Grand Officers of a 
burden that never ought to belong to them. Indeed we now know 
that we have by the contract system saved money. 

Which, on motion, was ordered printed. 

The following telegram was received, which was ordered 
printed in the proceedings, and the Grand Master and 
Grand Secretary were instructed to send a suitable response 
of fraternal greetings : * 

Canton, Ohio, May 21, 1895. 
B. F. Foster, Grand Secretary, I. O. O. F.: 

The Grand Lodge of Ohio sends fraternal salutations to the 
Grand Lodge of Indiana. 

Jno. M. Broderick, Grand Master. 

C. H. Lyman, Grand Secretary.

To (he Grand Lodge, T. 0. O. F., of Indiana : 

We, your committee on Finance and Accounts, to whom was re-

No. 935. OPINION BY ENOCH G. HOGATE, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Lidianq : 
J. T. Burton vs. Herndon Lodge, No. 95. 

The charges in this case are as follows : 

" We charge Bro. J. T. Burton with committing a fraud upon 
Herndon Lodge by representing himself in good health when re- 
instated July 8, 1890. 

"Specification 1. That he admitted to the examining committee 
that his sickness and disability commenced in May, 1890, some two 
months prior to his being re-instated. 

"Charge 2. We charge Bro. J. T. Burton with obtaining money 
fraudulently. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2323 

"Specification 1. By claiming and receiving benefits he knew he 
was not entitled to. 

"Specification 2. Knowing he was not entitled to benefits he 
tried through his friends to induce the examining physicians to 
make a favorable report on his case so he could continue his draft 
on Lodge." 

After motions to dismiss and to make the charges more certain 
and specific, the appellant was put upon trial on the charges as 
above set out. The committee reported the charges sustained by 
a minority report, and a majority report was made not sustaining 
the charges. The Lodge adopted the minority report and expelled 
Bro. J. T. Burton from the Order. 

The appellant assigns as one ground of appeal that the charges 
and specifications are not sufficient to constitute a cause of action. 

The charge is fraud. Fraud consists in representing a thing to 
be true when the person making the representation knows at the 
time it is not true and the person to whom the representation is 
made does not know the truth about it, but relies upon the repre- 
sentation and acts to his damage. 

So far as the first charge is concerned there is no allegation of a 
fact in it. It does not disclose what Bro. Burton said in regard to 
his health, nor to whom he said it. It does not charge that Bro. 
Burton knew to the contrary in regard to his health, nor does it 
say that the Lodge was ignorant of his condition of health and 
relied on the statement of the appellant, whatever they may have 
been. Mere epithets of fraud, without the facts constituting the 
fraud, can not make a good ground of complaint. It is not necessary 
to even use the word "fraud" if the tacts alleged show it. The 
specification under this charge says "he admitted to the examining 
committee that his sickness and disability commenced in May, 
1890, some two months prior to his being re-instated." This specifi- 
cation might serve as evidence of a properly laid charge of fraud, 
but as an allegation of a fact it is worthless. If it is anything, it is 
pleading the evidence. Again, if the committee mentioned in the 
specification was the committee appointed by the Lodge to examine 
the fitness of applicant for re-instatement, then he informed the 
committee that his disability commenced in May, some two months 
before he was re-instated, and consequently the Lodge had knowl- 
edge of his state of health and was not misled by the statement of 
Bro. Burton, whatever it might have been. 

We do not think Lodges should be held to as high a degree of 
nicety in pleading as is obseri^ed in our law courts, but when a per- 
son is to be put on trial for fraud, involving his membership in the 
Order, the charges ought to have a reasonable degree of certainty. 
The defendant ought to be quite fully apprised of what he must 
meet. It has been so often held that mere epithets in a pleading 
will not answer the demands, but what was said or done that was 
false and whether the other party acted upon it, must be alleged. 

Chapter Xf, Section 2, General Laws, contains these words : " In 
all cases of fraud, conduct unbecoming an Odd Fellow, or other 
particular oflfense, it shall not be sufficient to state the same in 
general terms, but the particulars thereof shall be stated with 
reasonable certainty."

This section of the law has been followed with many adjixdged 
cases by this Grand Body :

Barr vs. Philoxenian Lodge, November, 1891, page 1091. 

The first charge does not come up to tne requirements of the 
General Law, nor the decisions ot this Body in such cases. 

The second charge and specifications under the same are bad for 
the same reasons. They attempt to present a separate and distinct 
cause of action. They do not do so. Nothing is shown by the 
charge why he was not entitled to the benefits he received. We 
can not look to the first charge, and say the money he got grew out 
of his fraudulent re-instatement. Each charge must stand by itself 
and be complete in itself 

Knowles vs. Terre Haute Lodge, November, 1892, page 1476. 

The second specification does not say what he did to induce his 
friends to act; does not say that bis iriends acted ; does not say 
that the Lodge was damaged by anything the appellant or his 
friends said to the examining committee ot physicians. 

There are many other questions arising in the record in this case, 
such as the substitution of the minority for the majority report, 
that the evidence does not sustain the finding of the committee, 
etc., but having arrived at the conclusion that the charges are in- 
sufficient, we do not examine the other questions. 

We therefore offer the following; 

Resolved, That the action of Herndon Lodge, No. 95, be reversed

and the Lodge given leave to prefer new charges if it so desire.

To the Grand Lodge, 1. O. O. F., of Indiana: 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was re- 
ferred the case of William Kiser vs. Wayne Lodge, No. 17, submit 
the following report therein : 

This was a trial upon charges, and the penalty inflicted was ex- 
pulsion. 

The charge was in four different counts, and upon the first one 
the Trial Committee found the accused not guilty. This count, 
therefore, need not be further noticed. 

The secpnd, third and fourth counts were for adultery, associa- 
ting with lewd women, and by his conduct bringing reproach upon 
the Order. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2325 



A motion was made by the accused to dismiss the second, third 
and fourth charges, upon the ground of the alleged insufficiency 
thereof, which motion was overruled. 

It is now argued before this committee that this motion should 
have been sustained. But your committee are of the opinion that 
no question as to the sufficiency of these charges is pre.'^ented by 
this appeal, for the reason that this motion is not contained in the 
statement of appeal. 

Sec. 15, Chap. XI, General Laws, provides : " The appeal shall be 
taken by such person filing a statement of appeal in writing with 
the Secretary of the Subordinate Lodge, which shall state, in plain 
and concise language, the reasons for taking the appeal, which 
statement shall be read- in open Lodge." 

It is further provided that thereupon the Secretary, under the 
direction of the Lodge, shall prepare an answer to such statement 
of appeal, which answer shall likewise state why the appeal should 
not be sustained. 

It is also provided, in the same section, that the Grand Lodge 
shall not have jurisdiction of any matter that has not first been 
presented to and acted upon by the Subordinate Lodge interested. 

It clearly appears, therefore, from these provisions, that before 
any alleged error in such proceedings.can be reviewed here, it must 
first be presented to the Subordinate Lodge; and, in case of the 
motion here sought to be reviewed, must be embraced in the state- 
ment of appeal and read to the Lodge below. 

It must follow from this, that we can consider nothing on appeal, 
except the matters complained of and stated in the statement of 
appeal, and all others must be deemed waived and abandoned. 

We decide, therefore, that in this case, no question arises which, 
under our laws can be considered by us, touching the insufficiency 
of the charges. 

May, 1886, 210; May, 1889, 228. 

A motion was also made to dismiss the cause for the alleged rea- 
son that accused had once been put in jeopardy for the same alleged 
offense. But how, or in what manner, he had been put in jeopardy 
is not stated ; the motion was not supported by affidavit, nor was 
any proof offered to support the same. If such fact existed, it was 
the duty of the accused to bring forward his proof of the same, 
and, failing to do so, the motion was correctly overruled. 

In this connection, it is also argued that the committee erred in 
excluding certain testimony. But the record does not show that 
any testimony was excluded, nor offered, in which case we have 
many times held that we can be guided only by the record. 

Our laws wisely provide that all such matters shall be reduced to 
writing, and incorporated in the record, which record, when prop- 
erly certified to us, must be deemed to speak the exact truth. It 
would be dangerous in the extreme to allow a recoi'd of a trial to be 
explained, contradicted, added to or varied by oral statements made 
when the appeal is being heard by the Grand Lodge. 

The remaining errors assigned challenge the sufficiency of the 
evidence, and assert that the judgment was contrary to law. 

No reason is shown why it is contrary to law, and we have not 



2326 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

been able to discover any. The evidence in the record fully sup- 
ports the charges, and amply justified the finding of the Trial 
Committee. 

It has been urged before us that the witnesses who testified- for 
the Lodge were not of good character. It was the duty of the ac- 
cused to show that in some proper way, at the'trial, if he could. 
But the Trial Committee had these witnesses before them, and were 
the best, if not the sole, judges of their credibility. And, by the 
finding, the committee having believed such witnesses, we can not, 
on appeal, disturb the judgment on mere oral statements, made 
here for the first time, touching their character. 
We therefore offer the following : 
Resolved, That this appeal be dismissed.

No. 937. OPINION BY J. B. COCKRUM, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., of Indiana : 

Joel Males vs. Morgan Lodge, No. 211, I. 0. 0. F. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom is referred 
the appeal of Bro. Joel Males against Morgan Lodge, No. 211, 
I. 0. 0. F., submit the following report : 

In this case charges were preferred on January 16, 1895, against 
Bro Males, as follows ; 

1. To having obtained money under false pretenses between the 
date of September 24, 1894, and November 25, 1894; having charged 
Bro. A. W. Farmer with five and three-fourths days' work more 
than he actually did, at the rate of two dollars per day. 

2. To lying*^ in that after acknowledging to the foregoing charge 
before the Investigating Committee on December 28. 1894, and 
promising to pay this money fraudulently obtained to Bro. Farmer 
in ten days or two weeks— the time being fixed by Bro. Males him- 
self, he has failed to fulfill this promise. 

3. To violating the obligation taken during his initiation. 
Notice was regularly served of these charges, and the same came 

to trial before a regularly appointed Trial Committee, pursuant to 
the requirements of the General Laws. Said committee met at 
the lodge room on the 6lh day of February, 1895, and Bro. Males 
and all witnesses were present. The evidence was heard, and the 
Trial Committee made its finding, and on the 13th day of February, 
1895, at the lodge room, the Noble Grand opened the package con- 
taining the papers and proceedings in the case, and thereupon the 
report of the Trial Committee was read, showing that they had in- 
vestigated the charges, and, after due notice, had heard the case 
and found the first charge of obtaining money under false pretenses 
sustained, and the second charge of lying sustained. 



GRAND LODGE OK INDIANA. 2327 

The evidence is in the record, and goes to show that Bro. Males 
had been at work for Bro. Farmer for thirty-six and one half days, 
by the account kept by Bro. Farmer, and that Bro. Males had 
charged Bro. Farmer with forty-two and one-fourth days' work. In 
the evidence, it appears that when a settlement was had between 
them, Bro. Farmer had charged against the account of Bro. Males 
$43.00 ; whereas, Bro. Males had credited Bro. Farmer with $55.00, 
and in the settlement, Bro. Farmer took the book of Bro. Males, 
both as to the charge for time and the credit for the money paid. 

When the Investigating Committee was looking into the charges 
as first presented, they undertook to fix up a compromise, by which 
Bro. Males was to pay back to Bro. Farmer, within ten days or two 
weeks, a certain amount of money, and as he did not do it, they 
then preferred the charges that he had falsely and fradulently ob- 
tained the money from Bro. Farmer, and had lied to them about 
the payment of it, and the Trial Committee found that hfe had 
obtained money under false pretenses, and that he was guilty of 
lying, as charged. 

There is not one syllable of testimony in this case to show that 
Bro. Males ever presented a bill to Bro. Farmer and demanded a 
single penny, but that in settlement there was some dispute and 
difference as to the time, whereupon Bro. Farmer accepted the 
account kept by Bro. Males, and also accepted the account 
Bro. Males, as to the money paid on the work theretofore 
performed by Bro. Males for Bro. Farmer. It is simply the settle- 
ment of an account between two neighbors, two friends and brothers 
of the same Lodge. It strikes your committee that it is unfair to 
drag into the Order cases which have no more foundation in fact 
than the case under consideration. Odd Fellowship should be too 
sacred ; teachings and principles of the Order should be too bind- 
ing upon the consciences of all members to permit a dispute such 
as this to find its way into the lodge-room and divide and separate 
the members of the Lodge into factions, whereby a discord may 
obtain that will ultimately work to the detriment of the Lodge 
and decidedly against the better interests of the Order. 

We do not believe the Investigating Committee had any right to 
prefer the second charge; we know they had no right to prefer the 
third charge, in which they speak of the brother having violated 
his obligations. In the transcript, that portion of the obligation 
which is set up as having been violated is a part of the secret work, 
and the Investigating Committee, and all other members of the 
Lodge who sanctioned its publication, have certainly forgotten the 
binding force of their own obligations, or they would not have' 
allowed this charge to have been published and the transcript that 
is now in the hands of your committee to have obtained. 
- There is absolutely no merit in this case. The brother has been 
wrongfully dealt with in the opinion of your committee. The evi- 
dence does not show that he obtained money under false pretenses. 
He did promise the Investigating Committee that he would try 
to fix this matter up. He did not do it as claimed. He claims he 
had no opportunity to do it, so that the unsettled condition of an 
account between two brothers is made the basis for the charges 
against the brother, whereby he is to be suspended from the Lodge 



2328 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

for eighteen months, as the finding in this case is — the action of the 
Lodge being that the brother should be suspended for the period of 
eighteen months. 

Your committee can not concur in the action of the Lodge in 
this behalf. We think a wrong has been done Brother Males. We 
think the Lodge has exceeded its power and its duty toward 
Brother Males. We therefore find that this appeal should be sus- 
tained, and we recommend the adoption of the following : 

Resolved, That the appeal of Brother Joel Males against Morgan 
Lodge, No. 211, I. 0. 0. F., be sustained; that the action of Morgan 
Lodge, No 211, as against Brother Males, beset aside, and that said 
Lodge be directed to restore him to membership and to good stand- 
ing in all things in so far as the action in this case is concerned.

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. 0. F., of Indiana : 

S. M. Stevens vs. Richland City Lodge, No. 577. 

Your Committee on Appeals, to whom was referred the papers in 
the case of appeal of S. M. Stevens vs. Richland City Lodge, No. 
577, have carefully examined all the papers in this case and find 
that Bro. Stevens was taken sick about February 6, 1895, and was 
sick two weeks. Bro. Stevens was a married man but was not liv- 
ing with his wife. He, Bro. Stevens, sent for his wife and she came. 
He asked her to stay with him and nurse him during the day. 
He, Bro. Stevens, claims that some of the Relief Committee told 
him, also his wife and the landlord, to board Mrs. Stevens while 
she was there and that the Lodge would pay her board. This is 
denied and the Lodge refused to pay her board, which was $5.25. 
This case is not in a proper shape for your committee to make a 
decision as to the merits of this case, but we recommend that if 
Bro. Stevens desires to do so, he and the Lodge may refer this 
claim to a committee of Past Grands, as provided in Chapter IV, 
Section 15, of the General Laws.

B. F. Carl vs. Salamonia Lodge, No. 392. 

It appears from the record in this case that prior to May, 1894, 
charges were preferred against the appellant, and being convicted 
on a trial he was fined $25.00 by his Lodge. On appeal to this Lodge 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2329 

the judgment was atiirmed. See Carl vs. Salamonia Lodge, No. 392, 
May, 1894, page 2020. 

On the 26th day of January, 1895, the appellant filed in his 
Lodge a petition, containing eight propositions, asking that said 
fine be remitted because he was financially unable to pay the same ; 
that he was in good health and his dues were all paid. We do 
not set out the reasons given in appellant's petition in full, because 
the view we take of the case renders it unnecessary. The petition 
was accepted by the Subordinate Lodge and placed on file, and a 
motion was made to remit the fine, which motion was lost. A 
motion was then made to remit all of the fine but |5.00, and this 
motion was lost. A motion was then made to suspend the appel- 
lant for eighteen months for non-payment of the $25.00, and that 
motion was lost. A motion was then made to expel the appellant 
for the non-payment of said fine, and the record informs us that 
more than two-thirds having voted to expel, the Noble Grand de- 
clared him expelled. The appellant then gave notice of appeal 
and filed his grounds in which he claims that the action of the 
Lodge in expelling him was "unlawful, inoperative and void." The 
Lodge answei'ed the grounds of appeal with a denial. 

The judgment of the Lodge in assessing the fine against Bro. 
Carl, having been affirmed by the Grand Lodge is forever at rest, 
and the validity of that judgment can not now be questioned. Bro. 
Carl must pay the fine, if the Lodge does not remit it, if he would 
be in good standing with his Lodge. The only question to decide, 
therefore, is the validity of the action of the Lodge in expelling 
him for the failure to pay the fine. 

Section 16, Chapter XV, General Laws, reads as follows: 

" The refusal to pay any fine imposed according to law shall sub- 
ject the delinquent so refusing to the penalty of suspension or ex- 
pulsion, as the Lodge may determine." 

We do not understand from this section that a member of a 
Lodge, against whom a fine stands, can be expelled from the Lodge 
for non-payment of the fine without charges preferred and a regu- 
lar trial and finding showing his refusal to pay the fine. The Lodge 
in this case acted summarily without notice to the appellant. He 
was before the Lodge by petition asking mercy by reason, as he 
says, of inability to pay. The Lodge refused this and proceeded 
to expel the appellant, presumably from the fact that the records 
of the Lodge showed an unpaid fine against the appellant. He 
had no day in court to answer to a charge of refusal to pay, and it 
should be borne in mind that the law says " refusal.' 

It might be that the delinquent member could show an utter in- 
ability, by reason of .sickness or lack of opportunity to earn the 
money, and these might constitute valid defenses to a charge of "re- 
fusal to pay." We do not, however, decide that they would be de- 
fenses. This case is somewhat in the nature of a suit on a judg- 
mient in our civil courts. There the judgment is pronounced and 
is valid. Before a suit could be maintained on the judgment, the 
defendant mu^t be notified that he may come into court and show 
a payment of the judgment, or make any valid defense he may 
have. The court in such a case can not take notice of the fact that 
the records show an unpaid judgment and summarily enter a re- 
newal of the judgment. In this case the brother was not informed 



2330 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

that he was to be proceeded against for the non-payment of a fine. 
He has not been heard on "refusing to pay," and yet the extreme 
penalty of the law has been inflicted. We do not believe there is 
any ofiense mentioned in Chapter XIV General Laws, or any of- 
fense cognizable by the laws of our Order, where a penalty may be 
inflicted, that the penalty can be imposed without notice to the de- 
fendant. 

Again the record of the vote showing the expulsion is not given. 
The record says : "More than two-thirds having voted to expel for 
non-payment of fine, Noble- Grand so declared him expelled." 

It is decided over and over by this Grand Lodge that the record 
made by the Lodge and the record on appeal must show how 
many were present when the vote was taken, and the number 
who voted for and and against. This is not done in this case.

For the errors pointed out, we think the action of Salamonie 
Lodge, No. 392, in expelling Bro. B. F. Carl, ought to be reversed. 

We therefore recommend that this cause be reversed, and that B. 
F. Carl be restored to membership in his Lodge. But nothing 
herein shall be construed as affecting the fine of twenty-five dollars 
assessed against B. F. Carl.

This case is the original claim of Sheridan Lodge, No. 691, 
against Delphi Lodge, No. 28, for $57, which it claims to have paid 
Bro. Clayton E. Cox, a member of Delphi Lodge, No. 28, in good 
standing, while living in the jurisdiction of Sheridan Lodge, No. 
691, on account of sick benefits due to Bro. Cox. Delphi Lodge has 
made its answer, but there is no evidence on either side submitted 
to your committee by which we can arrive at a correct conclusion 
in the case. We therefore recommend the adoption of the follow- 
ing: 

Resolved, That the case of Sheridan Lodge, No. 691 , against Delphi 
Lodge, No. 2S, together with all papers therein, be referred to a 
commissioner, to be appointed by the Grand Master, who shall pro-

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. 0. F., of Indiana : 

In the case of Aaron Chamberlain vs. Grand Prairie Lodge, No. 
164, the record shows that appellant was tried and expelled upon a 
charge of failing, neglecting and refusing to provide for his wife. 

Two grounds of appeal are stated : 

1 . 1 nsufficiency of the charge. 

2. Refusal to allow accused to testify as to the cause of such 
failure. 

Your committee believe that the charge was insufficient for the 
reason that it did not charge that such refusal was without cause. 
But we do not rest this opinion upon that alone. Upon the trial 
the Lodge contented itself with simply showing the fact of such 
failure, without in any way attempting to show the cause thereof. 
In his defense ajDpellant offered to show the reason why, but all 
evidence on this subject was excluded by the Trial Committee. This 
was error. If appellant had just grounds to part from his wife, or 
for any cause had good grounds for his refusal to provide for her, 
he was entitled to be heard. To say the least of it, he was entitled 
to show all the circumstances surrounding the case in mitigation of 
his supposed ofiense. 

We therefore ofter tBe following : 

Resolved, That this appeal be sustained ; that a new trial be 
granted, and that future proceedings herein, if any, shall be had in 
accordance with this opinion.

S. J. Hinkle vs. Saratoga Lodge, No. 703. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals to whom was re- 
ferred the grievance of S. J. Hinkle against Saratoga Lodge, have 
had the same under consideration, and, from the record, find that 
the brother was fined by his Lodge for not responding to a call by 
his Lodge to watch with a sick brother. 



2332 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

Brother H inkle claims he ought to be relieved from that duty 
for the reason, as he alleges, that two members of his Lodge agreed 
in his st^ad to relieve him of that duty whenever his turn came in 
rotation on the roll. 

Ee neglected to watch when hi» Lodge notified him, and the 
matter seems to have been duly investigated by his Lodge, which 
found the excuse and reasons urged by him insufficient and fined 
him. 

A Lodge has no right to fine a brother without a charge and 
trial, but in this case the record shows that an investigation was 
had, and after such investigation the fine was made. 

We can not disturb the finding of the Lodge. Inasmuch as 
they took the evidence we must assume that the evidence justified 
the finding. The evidence is not in the record, except as shown by 
the grievance and answer of the Lodge and the record. « 

Under such circumstances, we must presume the action of the 
Lodge correct. We therefore recommend that the grievance and 
appeal of Brother Hinkle be dismissed.

Adam W. Meek vs. Hudson Lodge, No. 692, L O. O. F. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was re- 
ferred the case of Bro. Adam W. Meek against Hudson Lodge, No. 
692, I. 0. 0. F., submit the following report f 

In this case charges were presented to the Lodge against Bro. 
Meek on the 14th day of September, 1894, and were referred by the 
Noble Grand to an Investigating Committee, which Investigating 
Committee reported reasonable grounds for the charges and pre- 
ferred the same in the name of the committee. The charges were : 

1. That Brother Adam W. Meek, at a special meeting of Hud- 
son Lodge, No. 692, I. 0. 0. F., on Thursday evening, September 
13, 1891, did enter the reception room of said Lodge in a maudlin 
or intoxicated condition and attempt to work his way into said 
Lodge ; failing in this did then and there use profane and boisterous 
language. 

2. That Bro. Adam W. Meek, on the evening of September 13, 
1894, did use profane and boisterous language on a public street in 
Hudson, Steuben county, Indiana, while in a maudlin or intoxi- 
cated condition. 

Upon these charges being presented the Noble Grand appointed 
a Trial Committee. The accused was regularly notified and furn- 
ished with a copy of the charges, and the time for the trial was 
fixed for October 3, 1894, at two o'clock p. m., at the Lodge Hall of 
Hudson Lodge, No 692. At the time Bro. Meek appeared before

the committee and pleaded guilty to the charges as made. He 
submitted his plea of guilty in writing, and tlie committee ap-

whereupon they made their report to the Lodge accordingly, and, 
on the Lodge night of October 18, 1894, the Noble Grand of the 
Lodge announced the consideration of the report in order and 
thereupon the Lodge voted by slip ballots, to sustain the finding 
of the Trial Committee, and the Lodge then voted by slip ballots, 
on the highest penalty, expulsion, which resulted fifteen in favor 
of expulsion and four against, and the defendant, Bro. Adam W. 
Meek, was declared expelled. And from such action and decision 
of the Lodge in his case, Bro. Meek prosecutes his appeal to the 
Grand Lodge, and submits his written statement of appeal to the 
Grand Lodge, which has come to your committee. 

The reasons assigned for an appeal are : 

1. That the trial was irregular from the beginning, and the 
Constitution and By-Laws governing such proceedings were wholly 
disregarded. 

In this contention your committee can not concur. The pro- 
ceedings were entirely in conformity with the general laws, and 
your committee do not find that the first specification as cause for 
appeal is sustained. 

The second assignment of appeal is that citizens that were not 
members of the Order were cognizant and apprised of the proceed- 
ings to be had in said Lodge in relation to the charges preferred 
against Bro. Meek prior to the time the said charge was heard in 
the said Lodge. 

Of course this is a matter that should not have been given any 
prominence at all, and the Lodge certainly took no action as a 
Lodge by which the fact became public, and therefore, it could not 
be charged againet the Lodge as a body that such an action was any 
cause of irregularity upon the trial. The members of the Order 
who thoughtlessly said anything about the trial being had upon any 
such charges, if they did so, acted very wrongfully toward Bro. 
Meek and toward their Lodge, but such action is not a matter that 
can be taken advantage of in the consideration of this Appeal. 

The third assignment of appeal is that the members that pre- 
ferred the charges did, before the vote was taken to determine the 
guilt or innocence of the accused, solicit, influence and request Bro. 
Charles Parnell and others to vote to expel the accused. 

Whether this be true or not, there is nothing in the record to 
show the truth or falsity of the position assumed, and the bare 
charge made as a cause for appeal of course will not be considered 
by your committee. There is nothing in this specification of appeal 
that entitles the claim of Bro. Meek to any consideration. 

The fourth assignment is that an accurate vote was not taken 
and counted by said Lodge on sustaining the decision of the Trial 
Committee and that said vote was taken by and on paper slips, and 
that the same was not tallied when taken, but that after said count, 
on demand of members of the said Lodge, all of said paper slips 
that could be found were re-counted and then tallied. 

This assignment of irregularity and as cause for appeal of this 
case to the Grand Lodge has been considered by your committee. 
The law upon the subject of voting upon questions of this charac- 



2334 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

ter is that the vote must be had by ballot. The vote on the de- 
cision of the Trial Committee was properly taken, and therefore, 
this charge is no cause for a reversal of this ca^e. 

The fifth assignment for the appeal of Brother Meek, is that 
when the vote was taken to expel the said member, paper slips 
were used for ballots, one member of said Lodge writing and 
making the ballots on slips for several other members of said 
Lodge to vote, aside from himself. 

Paper ballots could be used to vote upon this question, and there 
was nothing wrong in one member writing and making ballots for 
other members to vote. The law upon this subject is that the ballot 
must be had upon the question of punishment, including the 
question of whether or not the Lodge will expel a member, but the 
kind of ballots is not mentioned, whether by ball ballots, paper 
ballots, or slip ballots as in this case, so that the action of the 
Lodge in this behalf was correct. 

There are several other charges set out in the statement of 
appeal of Brother Meek, which your committee do not deem it 
advisable to take up the time of the Grand Lodge to cite, or to 
recount, for the reason that the record does not show facts to base 
them upon so that we come to the conclusion at this time that the 
appeal in this case must be dismissed. 

Your committee therefore recommend the following : 

Resolved, That the appeal of Brother Adam W. Meek against 
Hudson Lodge, No. 692, I. 0. O. F., be dismissed.

W. H. Fisher vs. Johnson Lodge, No. 76. 

Your Committee on Appeals, having carefully considered the 
appeal of Johnson Lodge, No. 76, from the Committee of Past 
Grands, find that on November 9, 1894, Bro. W. H. Fisher received 
a cut on his left hand that nearly severed the thumb from his hand. 
He applied to his Lodge for benefits. The Relief Committee, after 
investigating his case, reported adverse to allowing the claim. Bro. 
Fisher then appealed to a committee of Past Grands, who were 
properly appointed ; time was set to hear the case, the committee 
met, and the only evidence introduced was that of Bro. Fisher and 
the physician's certificate, which certificate and his evidence show 
that he was entirely unable to use his left hand for any purpose. 
Bro. Fisher was working as a hand in the meat-market of his son, 
and says he was in the shop every day, but was unable to do any 
work, except when a customer came to the shop, if there was meat 
cut such as they wanted, he could weigh it for them. As a compen- 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2335 

sation for his remaining in tlie shop he took what meat his family 
used. There is nothing to show that he received any other com- 
pensation. The Committee of Past Grands considered the case, 
heard the evidence and reported, finding Bro. Fisher entitled to 
three weeks' benefits, $15. From their decision Johnson Lodge ap- 
peals to this Grand Lodge. That while it is true that Bro. Fisher's 
affliction was not of such a nature as to confine him to his house, it 
was of such a nature as to totally disable him from doing any work 
that required both of his hands to perform it. We therefore 
offer the following : 

Resolved, That this appeal be dismissed and the report and find- 
ing of the Committee of Past Grande be affirmed, and Johnson 
Lodge directed to pay the amount of this claim.

Thomas Williamson vs. Utilis Lodge, No. 260. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals report that they have 
examined the papers in this case, and find the following facts in 
substance : 

Utilis Lodge, No. 260, at one time passed a by-law and submitted 
the same to this Grand Body for ratification. This Lodge decided 
that the by-law in question was one beyond the power of a Subor- 
dinate Lodge to enact. Again the Subordinate Lodge passed a by- 
law, embodying in it the substance of what the Grand Lodge had 
ruled could not be enacted. Bro. Williamson appealed from the 
action of the Lodge. The papers sent up are signed by the appel- 
lant, Thomas Williamson, alone, and not in any official capacity, 
and without a certificate of the Secretary and seal of the Lodge. 
We can give this case no further consideration for the reason, 

1. That " the Grand Lodge shall not have jurisdiction of any 
grievance by petition, memorial or otherwise which shall not have 
first been presented to and acted upon by the Subordinate Lodge 
interested or involved in the matter." 

2. The papers are not certified by the Noble Grand and Secre- 
tary, and authenticated by the seal of the Lodge. 

We therefore recommend that this appeal be dismissed.

2336 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

No. 948. OPINION BY J. B. KENNER, P. G. M. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., of Indiana : 

G. B. Havens vs. Warrick Lodge, No. 379. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals to whom was re- 
ferred the appeal of Bro. G. B. Havens from the action of Warrick 
Lodge, No. 379, in expelling him, have had the same under consid- 
eration. We find that Brother Havens was charged by a com- 
mittee — 

1. That he converted to his own use Lodge funds while Perma- 
nent Secretary. 

2. Pasturing on a lot belonging to the Lodge. 

3. Improper language used in the course of debate. 

4. Falsehood. 

5. Dishonesty toward a person not a member of the Order. 
Upon this charge he was tried, he having admitted the truth of 

the second. 

The Trial Committee sustained the first charge, the second sus- 
tained in part, the third charge sustained, the fourth not sustained, 
and the fifth was dismissed. 

We find that the evidence under the first charge of converting 
to his own use the money of the Lodge consisted of his being short 
in his accounts as Permanent Secretary, about $2.00. This shortage 
was found by the Auditing Committee, and Brother Havens promptly 
paid it, and we are unable to find, from the evidence, any intention 
upon the part of Brother Havens to willfully wrong the Lodge. 

The evidence under the second charge shows that Brother Ha- 
vens did pasture a horse on a lot that the Lodge owned, but the 
committee finds that such pasturing did the lot no damage. 

The evidence under the third charge shows that the improper 
language used was language used in debate in the Lodge meetings, 
or in conversations while the Lodge was not in session. We have 
carefully read all the evidence, and find no language used which 
would warrant expulsion from the Order. The members had heated 
debates, and strong language was used on both sides, and, besides 
this, certain rejjorts had been, it seems, circulated on the outside of 
the lodge-room about Brother Havens, reflecting on his honesty; at 
least Brother Havens heard such, and this exasperated him, and 
probably caused him to be more intemperate in his language than 
he otherwise would have been. 

The fourth charge was not sustained. 

This statement seems to be a fair abstract of the points shown 
by the evidence. 

While your committee always feel disposed to uphold the ver- 
dict and findings of trials in Lodges, yet the membership of a 
brother in our Order is too sacred to be taken from him unless he 
is properly convicted of some oflense against the Order. 

The evidence is so meager that it is doubtful whether it shows 
any real offense. Certainly it is not strong enoiagh to warrant the 
visitation on him of the highest penalty known to our Order. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2337 

We fear that the disputes and wrangling in the Lodge prior to 
the trial, placed some ot its members in a prejudiced frame of mdnd 
against the accused, and operated against a fair trial. 
We can not sustain this judgment. 
We therefore offer the following ; 

Resolved, That the appeal of Bro. G. B. Havens from the action 
of Warrick Lodge, No. 379, in expelling him, be sustained, and the 
action of the Lodge reversed, and that Bro. Havens be restored to 
membership.

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. O. F., of Indiana : 

Rossville Lodge, No. 183, I. 0. 0. F., vs. John J. Fisher. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was 
referred the appeal of Rossville Lodge, No. 183, I. O. O. F., against 
Bro John J. Fisher, submit the following report : 

This is an appeal from the action of a Committee of Past Grande 
upon a claim for benefits presented to the appellant, Eossville 
Lodge, No. 183, by Bro. John J. Fisher. His claim was presented 
for benefits from August 29, 1894, to September 29, 1894, and the 
same was rejected by the Lodge and an appeal was taken to a Com- 
mittee of Past Grands, the Lodge selecting P. G. W. A. Morris, and 
Bro. Fisher selecting P. G. W. H. McGuire, and the two so selected 
selecting P. G. W. G. Morris, all of Frankfort Lodge, No. 108, to 
try the case. 

On the 20th day of December, 1894, the committee met at the 
hall of Rossville Lodge, No. 183, and examined the witnesses. After 
considering all of the case the committee made the following 
report : 

" We, the committee selected to hear the appeal case of Bro. 
John J. Fisher against Rossville Lodge, No. 183, would make the 
following report: We find that Bro. Fisher's disability commenced 
August 29, 1894, and that the Relief Committee was formally 
notified about October 13, 1894. Section IX, Article 4, By-Laws of 
Rossville Lodge; also. Section VII, Chapter 4, General Laws of 
Indiana, provide that no claim for sick benefits shall be allowed for 
a longer period than four weeks prior to such notice being given. It 
has been proven that Bro. Fisher was unable to follow his usual 
vocation or to earn a livelihood from August 29, 1894, to Sej^tember 
29, 1894. Therefore, benefit*? should commence four weeks prior to 
notice, or September 15, 1894, and end at termination of sickness, 
September 29, 1894. 



2338 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

" We are, therefore, of the opinion that the action of the Lodge 
should be reversed and that Bro. John J. Fisher be allowed two 
weeks' benefits. Respectfully submitted in F., L. and T." 

Signed by the committee. 

The testimony in the record tends to support the action of the 
committee and we think the committee was justified in its con- 
clusion upon the evidence. 

When the rej^ort made by the committee was submitted to the 
Lodge, a motion was made that it be received and placed on the 
minutes, which motion prevailed, and thereupon a motion was 
made that the Lodge appeal to the Grand Lodge of Indiana from 
the decision of the committee selected to try the case, and that the 
Secretary make out the necessary transcript and forward the same 
to the Grand Lodge, which was done. 

The action of the committee of Past Grands in this case is 
thoroughly sustained and justified by the evidence, and your com- 
mittee is of the opinion that an injustice would be done both to 
Brother Fisher and to Rossville Lodge, to disturb the action of the 
Past Grands' Committee. We therefore offer the following : 

Resolved, That the appeal of Rossville Lodge, No. 183, I. O. 0. F. 
against Brother John J. Fisher be dismissed and that the action of 
the Past Grands' Committee, selected by the Lodge and Brother 
Fisher, be in all things approved, and Rossville Lodge be, and the 
same is hereby directed to pay to Brother Fisher the benefits found 
to be due to him by the Past Grands' Committee aforesaid.

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. 0. F. , of Indiana : 

Ashboro Lodge, No. 251, vs. Center Point Lodge, No. 700. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was re- 
ferred the grievance and claim of Ashboro Lodge vs. Center Point 
Lodge, have considered the same, and find from the papers that 
Center Lodge filed some sort of a charge against Ashboro Lodge, 
and a Special Deputy was appointed to investigate the same, and 
such proceedings were had as that the Special Deputy found no 
merit in the charge, and dismissed it. 

It seems that Ashboro Lodge brought some seven witness a dis- 
tance of several miles, for the purpose of giving testimony. Now 
Ashboro Lodge claims that Center Point Lodge should be com- 
pelled to pay fees and mileage of these witnesses, together with 
the services of the secretary in making the service, etc., and prays 
this Grand Lodge to compel by mandate such payment in the 
total sum of $15r65. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2339 

While your committee believes there ought to be a law to tax 
costs in such a case against the losing party, yet we know of no law 
authorizing or warranting it under our laws at the present time. 
We, therefore, recommend that the claim be dismissed.

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Indiana : 

Daniel Emery vs. Oakland Lodge, No. 534. 

Your Committee on Appeals, to whom was referred the papers 
in the case of appeal of Daniel Emery vs. Oakland Lodge, No. 534, 
having carefully examined all the papers in this case, find that 
John W. Teal was initiated* in Oakland Lodge March 15, 1878, and 
that on September 27, 1882, he applied for and received the three 
degrees as per our present work, and they were conferred on him 
without fee. At the May session of this Grand Lodge, 1882, the 
following resolution was adopted (see page 1743 of this Grand 
Lodge), as follows : 

" Resolved, That all Lodges in this jurisdiction have the privilege 
to confer the three degrees upon all initiatory members who apply 
for the same within three months from July 1, 1882, without fee." 
This brother applied for the degrees September 27, 1882, which was 
within the three months specified, consequently he was entitled to 
receive the degrees withovit fee. It seems that lately a controversy 
has arisen among the members of Oakland Lodge about the pay- 
ment of the degree fee, and Bro. Teal has offered to pay to the 
Lodge five dollars, provided the Lodge would give him a receipt in 
full for those degrees ; and this proposition the Lodge has accepted 
and agreed to, and from this action Bro. Emery appeals, and from 
this appeal your committee offer the following ; 

Resolved, That this appeal be dismissed and the action of the 
Lodge be affirmed.

No. 953. OPINION BY J. B. COCKRUM, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. O. F., of Indiana: 

Aaron B. Templeton vs. Capital Lodge, No. 124. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom is referred 
the appeal of Aaron B. Templeton against Capital Lodge, No. 124, 
L 0. 0. F., submit the following report: 

In this case charges were presented on the 2d day of November, 
1894, by an Investigating Committee, pursuant to the requirements 
of the General Laws, charging Bro. Templeton with conduct unbe- 
coming an Odd Fellow, specifying therein certain statements and 
charges of public indecency on his part, the particulars of which 
we do not deem it necessary to set out in this opinion. 

The Noble Grand thereupon appointed a Trial Committee, to 
whom the charges were referred, and subsequent thereto a trial 
was had, and the finding of the committee was to the eflect that 
one of the specifications set out in the charges was sustained and 
the other specification was not sustained. 

The specification that was not sustained was a specific charge of 
indecency at a particular time in the presence of particular persons, 
the names, circumstances and facts concerning which we do not 
deem necessary to set out at length in this opinion. 

The charge that was sustained was that on or about the 11th 
day of October, 1894, the appellant was tried and found guilty in 
the Police Court in the city of Indianapolis of the crime of public 
indecency, which charge the evidence in the record fully sustained. 

We do not need to set out the evidence of the particular wit- 
nesses, nor to set out at length the finding of the Police Court, but 
submit that it is true that the brother was charged upon affidavit 
in the Police Court with the crime stated in the specifications, and 
was found guilty in that court and sentenced to pay a fine of 
twenty-five dollars ($25 00) and costs, which fine was replevied and 
paid. 

The evidence of certain witnesses in the record is to the effect 
that the finding upon the charge in the Police Court is correct, as 
several testified to certain acts which would go to show that the 
offense had been committed as charged. 

The grounds of appeal, as stated in the statement signed by the 
appellant, in the opinion of your committee are not valid, and we 
do not deem it necessary to take up the time of the Grand Lodge 
or incumber the record with setting out at length any of the spe- 
cific allegations of appeal. 

We find that this case has been fairly tried, and the judgment 
of the Lodge is that the offense committed by the brother, for 
which he was found guilty, was sufficient to expel him from the 
Order. In this judgment your committee fully concurs, and we 
believe the evidence sustains the finding, the conclusions of the 
committee and the Lodge, and further that the proceedings upon 
the trial were all regular, and that this appeal should be dismissed. 
We therefore recommend the following: 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2341 

Resolved, That the appeal of Bro. Aaron B. Templeton against 
Capital Lodge, No. 124, I. 0. 0. F., be dismissed and that the action

Indianapolis Lodge, No. 465, vs. George W. Bone. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals to whom was re- 
ferred the appeals of Indianapolis Lodge, No. 465, from the action 
of a committee of Past Grands in awarding Bro. Bone one week's 
sick benefits, have had the same under consideration. 

We find that the brother claimed benefits for three weeks, but 
his Lodge refused to allow him any part of it, whereupon a com- 
mittee of Past Grands was duly appointed, and after taking much 
testimony, awarded him one week's benefits. 

Your committee have read over the evidence and we can not 
say that the award pf the committee was wrong. 

The Past Grands heard all the evidence carefully, saw each wit- 
ness face to face, and could thereby judge best as to the credit to 
be given to each and all, and your committee believe that their 
finding should not be disturbed ; furthermore the appeal is very 
irregular, as there is no statement of appeal nor any reasons given 
why the finding should not be sustained, and for this reason alone 
if none other existed, this appeal must be dismissed, but for the 
reasons first set out we think the finding of the Committee of Past 
Grands should be approved. 

We therefore recommend that the appeal be dismissed, and the 
award of the Committee of Past Grands be approved.

Your Committee on Appeals have examined the papers in the 
case of appeal of Richmond Lodge, No. 254, vs. a Committee of Past 
Grands This is a case in which Bro. John Vanzant filed a claim in 
his Lodge for two weeks' benefits, with a physician's certificate of 



2342 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

his disability. The Relief Committee investigated his claim and 
reported adversely to allowing his claim, after vphich Bro. Vanzant 
asked an appeal to a committee of Past Grrands, and he selected 
Past Grand C. E. Newman, of No. 41 ; the Lodge appointed Past 
Grand Jepe. H, Brooks, of No. 212, and they selected Past Grand 
C. A. Bartel, of No. 199. The committee organized with C. A. Bartel 
as Chairman and C. E. Newman as Secretary, who also acted as at- 
torney for Bro. Varzant. The Lodge appointed A. K. Deets as the 
attorney for the Lodge. The committee met, heard the testimony, 
which was reduced to writing, and we have had the evidence be- 
fore us. Bro. Newman, on behalf of Bro. Vanzant, presented a 
statement that Bro. Vanzant made to him (Bro. Newman), and 
asked that it be taken as evidence. Bro. Deets, the attorney for 
the Lodge, objected to its being received as evidence, for the reason 
that the Lodge had no notice of such a statement being made and 
therefore had no opportunity to question Bro. Vanzant in regard to 
this statement. The Committee of Past Grands overruled this ob- 
jection and did receive that statement as evidence. This, your 
committee think, was an error. Bro. Vanzant should have been 
present and given his testimony in person ; or the Lodge should 
have had the privilege of being present when that statement was 
made by Bro. Vanzant, so that they might have had the privilege 
of knowing what that statement was before it was presented. The 
next evidence, and, in fact, the only evidence produced by Bro. 
Vanzant, was the certificate of J. S. Harold, M. D., which is as fol- 
lows : " This is to certify that I examined John Vanzant on Sep- 
tember 16, and found him suffering from chronic enlargement of 
the liver, feeble circulation with general prostration, and that he 
has been unable to perform manual labor from that time to this, 
September 16 to 30." Bro. Vanzant, as it is shown, owned a small 
farm, on which he kept some cows and horses, etc. His folks make 
butter and he takes it to Richmond and sells and delivers it to his 
customers. A number of witnesses testify that he, Vanzant, said, 
at all times when visited, that he all the time fed his cows and 
horse, cleaned out his stable and performed such other chores as 
were necessary to be done. Bro. W. A. Johnson testified that he 
had bought his butter of Bro. Vanzant for three or four years, and 
that Bro. Vanzant delivered butter to him every week for which he 
claims benefits, and he did not know that he was sick. The Noble 
Grand, Vice-Grand and Secretary visited him, and also the doctor 
that made the above certificate, and they all testify that the doc- 
tor said that he knew Vanzant was a farmer and that he was able 
to conduct his business and do such work as was necessary for him 
to do. Your committee do not wish to be misunderstood. We have 
not weighed the evidence in this case, but fail to find any evidence 
that would sustain the findings. We therefore offer the following : 
Resolved, That this appeal be sustained and the action of the Past 
Grands' Committee be set aside. Respectfully submitted,

No. 957. OPINION BY JOHN B. COCKRUM, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. 0. F., of Indiana : 

George W. Pitts vs. Philoxenian Lodge No. 44, I. 0. 0. F. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom has been 
referred the Appeal of Bro. Geo. W. Pitts, against Philoxenian 
Lodge, No. 44, submit the following report; 

The case is an appeal from the action of a committee of Past 
Grands, appointed as provided in Section 15, Chapter IV of the Gen- 
eral Laws, to try the question of whether or not Bro. Pitts was en- 
titled to benefits from the Lodge from August 17, 1894, to October 
10, 1894, amounting to $40. The committee of Past Grands were 
selected at the request of Bro. Pitts, and was composed of members 
of three different Lodges, none of them members of Philoxenian 
Lodge. After a fair trial the committee of Past Grands found that 
Bro. Pitts was not entitled to the benefits claimed. From this de- 
cision the present appeal is prosecuted. The grounds of appeal most 
strongly urged by Bro. Pitts are, (1) that the finding of the com- 
mittee of Past Grands was contrary to law, and (2) that the finding 
of the committee of Past Grands is contrary to the evidence. Your 
committee have carefully gone over the record, and have heard the 
argument offered by both parties, and after a full consideration we 
can find no reason to disturb the action of the committee of Past 
Grands. This Grand Lodge has repeatedly decided, and the de- 
cisions have been for many years acted upon, that it will not re- 
verse the action of a Past Grands' committee when there is evidence 
in the I'ecord to support the finding of such committee. In this 
case there is abundant evidence to sustain the Past Grands' com- 
mittee, and your committee recommend the adoption of the follow-

No. 958. OPINION BY GEO. SHIRTS, G. REP. 

To the. Grand Lodge, I. O. 0. F., of Indiana : 

Your Conamittee on Appeals makes the following report in the 
case of Bro. M Gish vs. Covington Lodge, No. 21 : 

Appellant prosecutes this claim for benefits before a committee 
of Past Grands, which committee found that appellant was entitled 
to nothing. 

The record on appeal is quite informal, but, as no objection has 
been made thereto, and it eufficiently appears therefrom what the 
controversy is, we have concluded to give our opinion on the 
matter. 



2344 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

Appellant joined said Lodge more than twenty years ago, but 
never advanced farther than the Initiatory Degree. When he ap- 
plied for the degrees, years ago, the Lodge refused to advance him 
upon the grounds that at initiation he had represented that he was 
in good health, when, in fact, he was then in bad health. But he 
has remained an initiate member of said Lodge ever since, no 
steps having been taken to revoke his membership for that, or 
any other cause. The Lodge contested this claim for benefits upon 
the sole ground of such alleged fradulent representations at initia- 
tion, and did not introduce any proof upon the subject of his actual 
condition during the period for which benefits were claimed, and, 
we must assume that the committee of Past Grands decided for the 
Lodge upon the ground thus assumed by it, for there can be no 
doubt, under the evidence in this record, that appellant was entitled 
to benefits unless debarred by such alleged representations. But, 
under the decisions of the Sovereign Grand Lodge, as well as those 
of this Grand Body, the Lodge can not successfully defend this 
case upon the ground assumed by it. For many years the Lodge 
has known of such representations, because when the degrees were 
applied for the Lodge refused on account thereof. It was then the 
duty of the Lodge promptly to cause charges to be preferred and 
his membership severed. Having knowledge of the supposed 
fraud, and failing to take steps promptly for its relief therefrom, 
the Lodge must be held to have waiv'ed the same. And now, when 
appellant has grown old in years, and after twenty years have 
elapsed since the supposed representations were made, the Lodge 
can not be permitted to urge them in defense of a claim for 
benefits. 

May ISSl, p. 1439. 

We thereiore offer the following : 

Resolved, That this appeal be sustained; that the finding and 
judgment of the said Past Grands' committee be set aside, and that 
any further proceedings herein shall be had and taken in accord- 
ance with this opinion.

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., of Indiana : 

A memorial from Bro. Alpheus Morris has been referred to your 
committee. It asks for an opinion concerning his rights to further 
benefits from Greencastle Lodge. We have concluded to answer it, 
but of course this opinion can not be binding on said Lodge, for it 
has not had notice. 

Bro. Morris prosecuted a claim for benefits against said Lodge ; 
the case was here one or more times, and finally went to the Sov- 
ereign Grand Lodge. Eventually all matters growing out of such 
claims were settled by agreement of the parties, and the Lodge 
paid the sum agreed upon. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2345 

With this Bro. Morris must be content. We know of no way to 
open the matter up, nor any reason why it should be opened up, and 
we therefore ask to be discharged from the further consideration of 
this matter.

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on Appeals, in the case of Charles Mund vs. 
Moltke Lodge, No. 674, report as follows : 

The charge in this case recited that on the 14th day of November, 
1894, the Circuit Court of Lake county handed down a judgment 
in tlie case of the State of Indiana against appellant, wherein 
appellant was fined 1100.00, sentenced to jail for five days and dis- 
franchised for one year. 

This charge was quite informal in that it only pleaded the evi- 
dence, whereas it should have charged the accused with the crime. 
To this charge appellant pleaded guilty, with some reservations, 
and on that he was expelled. 

If the case stood alone on the above facts, we would not feel 
warranted in reversing the judgment. But there has been filed 
with us the official statement of the D. D. G. M. of that district, to 
the effect that the result of this case was not satisfactory to the 
Lodge, and we have concluded that justice will be best subserved 
by granting a new trial, when all parties may have a fair and im- 
partial hearing, and we therefore offer the following: 

Resolved, That this appeal be sustained; that the Lodge have 
leave to prefer new charges, if it desires, and that any further pro- 
ceedings herein shall be had and taken in accordance with this 
resolution.

No. 950. opinion by geo. shirts, g. rep. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Lidiana : 

Your Committee on Appeals have examined the case L. H. Wil- 
lis vs. Sullivan Lodge, No. 147, and beg leave to report : 

Charges were preferred in said Lodge against the appellant on 
the 19th day of January, 1894, for assault and battery with intent 
to kill one Wm. C. Hultz, and, in another paragraph charging him 
with the murder of said Hultz. 



2346 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 



A Trial Committee was duly appointed, and the yth day of Feb- 
ruary, 1894, was set for the day of trial. 

Upon notice given to the accused, he failed to appear at the trial, 
and the Trial Committee so reported to the Lodge, without having 
taken any evidence whatever upon the merits ot the case. 

Thereupon, a new investigating committee was appointed, who 
reported charges against appellant for contempt in failing to appear 
and answer at said trial on Febi'uary 9, and, on notice of trial upon 
said last named trial, appellant again failed to appear, and for these 
reasons alone, he was tried and expelled for contempt. 

It appears, without any dispute whatever, that the killing, which 
was the subject of this controversy, occurred on the 24th day of 
December, 1893, and that appellant was at once arrested and thrown 
into the Sullivan county jail, and duly indicted for murder in the 
first degree, under which charge, of course, he could not be ad- 
mitted to bail. He was afterward transferred to the jail in Knox 
county, where said criminal case had been sent on change of venue, 
in which jail he remained until September 20, 1894, at which time 
his trial for said alleged offense was concluded, resulting in- his 
acquittal of said charge and release from imprisonment. From his 
long imprisonment he was worn in body and mind, his farm and 
property needed his attention, and time was required to straighten 
out his financial affairs owing to the expense incident to his trial 
and his enforced absence from his business. 

We are met at the threshold of this case with a motion to dis- 
miss this appeal on the ground that the appeal was not taken 
within the time required by the law. 

Section 15, Chapter XI, General Laws, provides that such appeal 
shall be taken to the next session of the Grand Lodge, if possible. 
It will thus be seen that the law does not absolutely cut off an ap- 
peal if not taken to the next session, but leaves, for the decision of 
every case, the question whether the failure to appeal is justified by 
the circumstances. 

The Lodge does not contend in this case that appellant lost his 
right to appeal on account of not bringing the case here in May, 
1894, because it admits that appellant was then in prison. But it 
does contend that, appellant having been released September 20, 
1894, that the appeal is barred because not taken to the November 
session, 1894. But your committee think otherwise. We believe 
that, under the extraordinary circumstances of this case, appellant's 
long confinement, his trial for his life, and the consequent derange- 
ment both of his physical nature and his financial affairs, that he 
ought not to be denied the privilege of a hearing in the Grand 
Lodge. 

We are the more inclined to this opinion for the reason that we 
believe he was not properly nor justly expelled from his Lodge. 

As above shown, at the time the first charge was presented 
against appellant he was incarcerated in the county jail, and he was 
likewise so confined at the time of his expulsion. But his trial in 
the State court, on the charge of murder, had not taken place, and 
it was not proper to require him to disclose his defense thereto, nor 
any part thereof, in a trial in the Lodge for the .same offense. It is 
true the evidence shows that the sheriff was willing to take the ac- 
cused to the lodge-room to attend these trials, but under such cir- 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2347 

cumstances it is manifest that the accused would have stood upon 
an unequal footing. Besides this, in the State law, a party accused 
of crime can not be required to testify, nor can his refusal to do so 
be commented upon by the State, much less be made the foundation 
for an action for contempt. Our laws provide that in cases not pro- 
vided for in our laws the laws of the State shall apply, and, we 
think, in cases such as this, it ought not to be held that the accused 
should be required to answer, or show cause, or take any steps in a 
proceeding in the Lodge in advance of his trial in the civil courts. 
We are the more inclined to this view where, as here, after a 
regular trial in the courts, where eminent counsel on both sides 
have been employed, the accused has been entirely exonerated 
from the terrible crime charged. 

We are, therefore, of opinion that it was not contempt for the 
accused to fail to appear at these trials, under the peculiar and ex- 
traordinary circumstances disclosed by this record, and that his ex- 
pulsion from the Order on account thereof should not be allowed 
to stand, and we offer the following: 

Resolved, That this appeal be sustained ; that the judgment of 
expulsion herein ,be set aside and that appellant be restored to 
membership in his Lodge.

No. 959. OPINION BY ENOCH G. HOGATE, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. 0. F., of Indiana : 

Reuben Koontz i;.<;. Greensboro Lodge, No. 247, I. O. O. F. 

The Committee on Appeals, to whom was referred the above- 
entitled cause, report as follows : 

Brother Reuben Koontz had his index finger cut in an effort to 
remove a fruit can from the hoof of his cow. The wound was a 
painful one, and prevented the brother from performing all the 
duties of his trade, that of carpenter. Brother Koontz filed a claim 
in the Lodge for two weeks' benefits. The Lodge refused to pay, 
and an appeal was taken to the Committee of Past Grands. The 
result of the trial was that the committee denied the benefits 
claimed, and allowed Brother Koontz nothing for his disability. 
An appeal was properly taken. 

If the Committee of Past Grands had decided this cause the 
othei" way we would not feel, under the evidence, like recommend- 
ing that such a decision be disturbed. There is evidence tending 
to support the finding of the committee, and this being the case, 
under the well settled rule of this Grand Lodge, we can not dis- 
turb the finding ; to do so would constitute the Lodges judges of 
the weight of the evidence and the credibility of the witnesses. 

Brother Koontz makes complaint in his grounds of appeal that 
the evidence is imperfectly set out in the record, and does not dis- 
close the burden of what the witnesses testified to. We are in- 



2348 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

clined to believe that this complaint is well founded. The evidence 
is given in narrative form, and professes to be only the substance. 
But Brother Koontz did not take any steps in the Subordinate 
Lodge to have the record corrected and perfected. He only as- 
signs it as a ground of appeal. If he v?ould have the record dif- 
ferent, or fuller, or more perfect, he ought have looked after it be- 
low, and if denied a completer record, then, by a proper showing, 
this body could have ordered all the proceedings here for review. 
We do not understand that there is more record in this case than 
is before us. It may be not much of the evidence was taken. Of 
this we can not say. We therefore recommend the following : 

Resolved, That the appeal of Brother Reuben Koontz be dis- 
> missed. Enoch G. Hogatb,

E. G. Coverdale vs. St. Mary's Lodge, No. 167. 

Your committee begs leave to report on this case as follows : 
Bro. E. G. Coverdale, a member of St. Mary's Lodge, No. 167, 
filed in said Lodge a claim for benefits. The Lodge disallowed the 
claim, and an appeal was taken to the Committee of Past Grands. 
The committee heard the evidence and reported that Bro. Cover- 
dale was not entitled to benefits. Bro. Coverdale appeals from the 
.decision of the Past Grands, and assigns as grounds of appeal that 
the finding is not warranted by the evidence. 

We have read the evidence in this case over carefully, together 
with the briefs of counsel, and find that there is evidence tending 
to sustain the finding of the Past Grands. The evidence is con- 
flicting. The witnesses were before the committee. They saw their 
manner in testifying, and are better able to judge of the weight of 
the evidence than are we. In this state of the case we must be 
content with the finding of the committee.

No. 961. OPINION BY ENOCH G. HOGATE, G. REP. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Indiana: 
Ex parte, J. R. Sutherlin. 

Your Committee on Appeals, to whom was submitted the appeal 
of J. R. Sutherlin, D. D. G. M., from the Grand Master, submit the 
following : 

The record in this case shows that one, H. C. Hobbs, applied for 
membership in Salem Lodge, No. 67. His application was referred 
to a committee, and that committee reported favorably, and the 
ballot being spread, the said Hobbs was declared elected. At a 
subsequent meeting of the Lodge the D. D. G. M., in a written 
order filed with the Lodge, set aside the action of the Lodge in 
electing said Hobbs to membership, and being again balloted on, he 
was rejected. The Lodge then, by unanimous vote, appealed from 
the decision of the D. D. G. M., and the Noble Grand appointed a 
committee of three brothers to make the appeal papers and " to 
fully inform the Grand Master of all the particulars regarding the 
ballot and action of the Lodge." Afterwards the committee re- 
ported that the Grand Master had reversed the decision of the 
D. D. G. M., and the committee was discharged. The D. D. G. M. 
appeals, and a properly certified record is sent up. We are asked 
to reverse the decision of the Grand Master. Your committee is 
at a loss to know what to decide in this case, as the decision of 
neither the D. D. or the Grand Master are given. We can not tell 
what the controversy is about, nor who is 'right or wrong. The D. 
D. G. M. sends a statement which accompanies the papers, showing 
the grounds on which he acted, but the decision of the Grand Master 
is nowhere given, and so we decide nothing on the merits of this 
appeal. We only say that no D. D. G. M or Grand Master has 
any power to set aside the action of a Subordinate Lodge on electing 
a person to become a member. 

We believe, however, it will be profitable to state in this connec- 
tion what we believe to be the proper rule of practice in the 
decisions made by District Deputies and appeals therefrom to the 
Grand Master. 

It ought to be remembered that it is not the province of the Dis- 
trict Deputy or the Grand Master to pass upon questions of fact. 
Their decisions must be upon questions of law only, excluding all 
facts except such as may be necessary to present the question to be 
decided. Any contest involving a decision on the facts ought not 
be submitted to the Grand Master or District Deputy, nor ought he 
be called on to make a decision in such a case.

Section 8, Chapter XV 111, General Laws. 

On page 80 of General Laws, under the head of "Redistricting 
the State," is the following provision: 

"liesolved. That the D. D. G. M. shall be the medium of com- 
munication between the Lodges and the Grand Master on all ques- 
tions of law, usage and custom of the Order arising in the Lodges; 
and it is hereby re-affirmed as the law of this Grand Body that the 



2350 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 



Grand Master will not be required to decide questions of law, usage 
or custom of the Order arising in the Lodges, excepting on an 
appeal from the D. D. G. M." 

These quotations from the law and the above citation of authori- 
ties plainly indicate that the District Depvity and the Grand Master 
pass only on questions of law. 

As we conceive it, the proper method in these cases is for the 
District Deputy to make his statement and decision in writing, 
clearly indicating the law on the point made. This should be 
spread on the minutes of the Lodge in full. If the Lodge appeals 
from the decision of the District Deputy to the Grand Master, the 
only matter to go to the Grand Master is the statement of the Dis- 
trict Deputy as recorded on the minutes, properly certified by the 
Secretary of the Lodge. No other matters or statement of facts 
should go to the Grand Master. When the Grand Master sends 
his decision to the Subordinate Lodge, that must be spread of record 
in full. If an appeal should then be taken from the decision of 
the Grand Master to the Grand Lodge, a certified copy of the 
decision of the District Deputy and, also, the decision of the Grand 
Master, together with the grounds of appeal, would constitute the 
record. In such a case no question of evidence could arise. No 
committee is necessary to prepare the papers on appeal. No state- 
ments, outside of what the, minutes of the Subordinate Lodge 
ought to show, are permissible. It is purely a question of law, and 
this is the only matter the District Deputy or the Grand Master 
can properly decide. It is not proper tor the District Deputy or 
the Grand Master to pass upon and decide controverted questions 
of fact. (Washington Lodge, No. 11, supra.) We, therefore, offer 
the following : Resolved, That the appeal herein be dismissed.

No. 939. OPINION BY .J. B. KENNER, P. G. M. 

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. O. F., of Indiana : 
J. T. McShane vs. Carmel Lodge, No. 401. 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was re- 
ferred the appeal of Bro. J. T. McShane, from the action of Zions- 
ville Lodge, No. 28.5, in expelling him from the Order, have had the 
same under consideration. 

We find, from an examination of the whole record, that this case, 
together with the former trials and proceedings connected with it, 
have been in the Lodges or Grand Lodge since the early part of 
1892, and in order that the Grand Lodge may have the history of 
this case, and the facts as shown by the record, we will briefly set 
out the ifacts. 

On the 21st of January, 1893, charges were filed in Carmel Lodge, 
No. 401, which, in substance, charged Bro. McShane with seducing 
the wife of a brother, John A. Haines. Bro. McShane was at that 
time a prominent physician, and resided at Carmel, in Hamilton 
county. 

On or about the 7th of January, 1892, Dr. McShane was called 
to the house of said John A. Haines. Bro. McShane went, thinking 
he was called in a professional way. When he arrived he found 
John A. Haines and his wife there and no one sick, but Haines 
immediately charged him with seducing his wife. Dr, McShane 
at once became very angry and used some very strong language, 
and this language is the basis of the first charge in this case. Bro. 
McShane denied the charge made by Haines. 

After the charges were filed in the Lodge, for seduction, the 
Secretary took a copy of them to Bro. McShane, to his office, and 
delivered them to him in the presence of his wife, and a number 
of the doctor's patients. This conduct of the Secretary, at the 
place and under the circumstances, greatly angered Dr. McShane a 
second time, and he again indulged in the strong and intemperate 
language that is set out in the second charge in this case now on 
trial. Bro. McShane used improper and violent language, but, after 
cooling down, he wrote out and sent to his Lodge a full apology. 

The charge first spoken of, which charged Bro. McShane with 
seduction, came in for trial upon Carmel Lodge, and upon change 
of venue, was sent to Broad Ripple Lodge, and upon this trial he 
was found not guilty. 

A civil suit was also brought in the Circuit Court, but Haines 
abandoned that. 

We now come to the case now before us. 

This case was first tried upon two charges: 

The first charge set up that Bro. McShane when called 
to the house of John A. Haines, and charged by Haines 
of seducing his ( Haine's ) wife, used grossly vulgar and 
profane language in response to the charge made by 
Haines. The second charge is that when the Secretary 
delivered a copy of the charges to Bro. McShane, in the' presence 
of his wife and several other persons not members of the Order, he 
renounced and denounced the Lodge and the Order in violent. 



2352 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

defamatory, profane and oftensive language, and put the copy in 
the fire. These charges were preferred alter the original charges 
of seduction had been tried, and not sustained. 

A trial was had on these charges in Carniel Lodge, and the 
brother was expelled. There was an appeal to the Grand Lodge, 
and the action of the Lodge was reversed. (See Pro. of Grand 
Lodge, November, 1892, page 1469.) 

After the case was sent back to Carmel Lodge, a change of venue 
was taken, and the case was sent to Sheridan Lodge for trial. A 
trial was had, and the brother was again expelled. An appeal was 
taken again to this Grand Lodge, and again it was reversed and 
sent back. (See Pro. of Grand Lodge, May session, page 1882.) 

The case was returned to Sheridan Lodge, and by that Lodge 
returned to Carmel Lodge. The case slept there until the 28th 
of November, 1894. This was eighteen months after the Grand 
Lodge had reversed it the last time. 

On the 28th of November, 1894, the case was sent by Carmel 
Lodge to Zionsville, and a trial had. 

Many errors have been argued against the action of Zionsville 
Lodge in expelling Bro. McShane. 

Your committee has carefully examined this record, and the 
evidence and proceedings in the case, and have heard able and full 
oral arguments in the case by attorneys on both sides. 

The accused was notified when the case was sent to Zionsville 
Lodge, to appear and defend the case, and he appeared and filed a 
plea to the jurisdiction of Zionsville Lodge over this case or the ac- 
cused, on the ground that the record in Zionsville Lodge in this 
case does not show that any investigating committee was ever ap- 
pointed, and did actually prefer charges against him in this case. 

We have carefully examined the record and find no appoint- 
ment of an examining committee, whose duty it was to prefer 
charges. Therefore, so far as the record is concerned, none was 
ever appointed, and this Grand Lodge has decided again and 
again, under our present law, that unless charges are preterred by 
an investigating committee, no brother can be put upon trial, and 
unless the record shows this to have been done, Zionsville Lodge 
had no jurisdiction of the case or the person of the accused. The 
plea to the jurisdiction should have been therefore sustained, and 
it was error to overrule it. 

After the plea to the jurisdiction was filed, the accused asked 
the right to sustain his plea by proof, and that the Trial Committee 
rule on the plea, but the committee refused to do either, but held 
the plea and compelled the accused to go to trial on the merits, 
and made up their report and sent the question of the validity of 
the plea to the jurisdiction, to the Lodge, along with the report on 
the merits. 

We think this was error. 

A Trial Committee has full power to decide all questions arising 
on the trial, and settle all preliminary motions and questions, be- 
fore going to trial on the merits. 

If the plea to the jurisdiction was a valid one, and could have 
been sustained, then no trial was necessary and could not legally 
be held. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2353 

Many other errors are alleged, and some of them, we think, are 
well taken, but inasmuch as we have taken the above views, your 
committee will not discuss all of them. 

We now desire to give our views upon the case on its general 
features and the evidence. 

It seems to your committee that the great persistency with 
which this case has been pressed after several reversals savors some- 
what of persecution. 

After Bro. McShane was acquitted of the charge of seduction 
by Broad Ripple Lodge, it would seem that the main charge was 
settled, and the hot, intemperate language of the brother growing 
out of this charge was only an incident of the main charge, and is 
accounted for by reason of a brother Odd Fellow charging him 
with a most serious and grave charge, of which he was innocent. 

After Dr. McShane had been acquitted of the charge of 
seduction in Broad Ripple Lodge, out of which the charge in this 
case grew, and he had been practically acquitted of it in a civil 
court and given the manly apology to his Lodge which he did for 
his violent and angry language, it does seem that the principles of 
Odd Fellowship ought to have extended to him the principles of 
charity and brotherly love. But it seems that no apology or re- 
pentance on his part haa any weight in this case. 

We do not approve of the language used by the brother in any 
respect; it was angry and very intemperate, and wholly improper. 
But there are in this case, as this Grand Lodge has held similar 
language in other cases, extenuating and palliating circuinstances 
for strong and intemperate language. See Proceedings of Grand 
Lodge of Indiana, November Session, 1890, page 756. 

What would any brother probably do or say when another 
brother called him to his house and in the presence of his wife 
charged him with ruining that wife, such charge being wholly 
false, and on trial found to be false. We submit that most men 
would boil over, and one would be inclined to express himself 
strongly. 

Then, again, when the Secretary of the Lodge presented copies of 
charges to the brother, in the presence of his wife and other per- 
sons, who were his patients and friends, it seems that either by in- 
tent or inadvertence it was intended to humiliate our brother in 
the presence of his wife and friends, and it is not to be wondered 
at that Dr. McShane became very much agitated, and for the mo- 
ment lost control of himself, and used the very improper language 
which was used, but after he recovered his usual frame of mind he 
promptly and fully apologized to his Lodge. 

We are fully of the opinion that, under these facts, it is excessive 
punishment to expel a brother who had always before been a good 
man, and has always been since. 

The strong and intemperate language used by Brother 
McShane, in the presence of the Secretary, was hot, vio- 
lent and profane, and we must condemn it, but, under the circum- 
stances surrounding it, and provoked it, that there were extenuating 
and palliating circumstances, which after the apology did not war- 
rant the extreme penalty of expulsion ; besides this, your committee 



2354 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

does not regard that the evidence sustains the charge of renouncing 
the Order. 

The brother did speak rashly about his Lodge, but it could not 
be construed to renounce the Order. 

Brother McShane got the idea in his mind that the Lodge was 
under the influence ot the Haines' and their friends' influence, and 
that they were persecuting him, and this fact called out the strong 
language by the brother against the Lodge. 

That part of the charge which sets out that the brother burned 
the copies of the charges given him by the Secretary, was an im- 
proper charge. 

We believe it was error not to strike out that part of the second 
charge, and it was error to hear evidence on that subject, for the 
reason that when copies of charges are given to a brother, they are 
the brother's property, and for his information, and he can do what- 
ever he pleases with them, and if he destroys them, it is no offense 
againt the Order. 

It appears in this whole transaction that Dr. McShane has always 
borne the reputation of a good man, both before and since this 
trouble, besides being eminent in his profession. This being the 
case, should a case of mere contempt against his Lodge, for that is 
all that we can make out of this charge, expel a brother from our 
Order who has been an honored member for more than twenty 
years ? 

Your committee believe this case ought to be reversed, and inas- 
much as Dr. McShane has been tried three times and compelled to 
spend time and money to defend himself, and inasmuch as he 
rendered a manly apology, we think this ought to be an end of 
this case. We therefore offer the following : 

Resolved, That the action of Zionsville Lodge, in expelling Bro. 
J. T. McShane, be in all things reversed. 

J. B. Kenner, 
Enoch G. Hogate, 
J. B. Kimball, 

J. B. COCKRUM. 



The various reports were then considered, and the fol- 
lowing unanimously concurred in, without debate : Nos. 
935, 936, 937, 938, 940, 941, 942, 943, 944, 945, 946, 948, 
949, 951, 952, 953. 

The next report. No. 955, Indianapolis Lodge, No. 465 
vs. George W. Bone, was then read and considered. The 
question of concurrence was discussed by Bros. Bartley, 
Percifield, Shideler, Kenner, Cockrum and others. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA 2355 

J. M. Bartley, P. G., then moved to refer the report 
back to the committee, with instructions to reverse the 
action of the Past Grands' committee and sustain the ac- 
tion of the Lodge. 

Discussion ensued on the motion to refer back, and a 
vote was taken, which decided in the negative. 

The report of the Committee on Grievances and Ap- 
peals was then concurred in. 

Reports Nos. 956, 957, 958, 960, 947 were then con-

Report No. 950, L. H. Willis vs. Sullivan Lodge, No. 
147, was taken up and made the special order for 1:30 
o'clock, this afternoon. 

W. H. DeWolf, P. G. Rep., from the Committee on the 
State of the Order submitted the following 

R E P (.) R 'r : 
To the Grand Lodge, T. O. 0. F., of Indiana: 

Your Committee on the State of tlie Order, to which was referred 
so much of the Grand Master's report as relates to the Orphans' 
Home established at South Bend, beg leave to report that we have 
given the subject careful consideration, and from the documents 
submitted to us we believe the Home is a most worthy institution, 
and commends itself strong^ly to the minds and hearts of all Odd 
Fellows in this jurisdiction. It appears, however, to have been 
organized and incorporated as a merely local Home, without the 
sanction of this Grand Lodge, and therefore can have no legal claim 
against this body. And in the present condition of our treasury 
your committee can not see its way clear to recommend the Lodge 
to make an appropriation to aid the Home at this time, however 
much we might desire to do so under different conditions. Besides, 
the Lodges to whom the parents of the orphans now at the Home 
belonged are under legal obligations to maintain them. We are 
also informed that the organization of the "Odd Fellows' Home" 
contemplates the support of the orphans of the Order as well as of 
old and disabled and indigent members, and as it is expected that 
this Home will be in operation within a few months, we ofier the 
following resolution: 

Resolved, That it is inexpedient for this Grand Lodge to make an 
appropriation from its treasury to aid the Orphans' Home at South 
Bend. 

Which, on motion, was concurred in.

ing resolution : 

Resolved, That annotation No. 42, under Sec. 4, Chap. IV, Gen- 
eral Laws, be stricken out, and in lieu thereof the following be in- 
serted : 

42. If a brother has been sick thirteen weeks at the time a by- 
law is adopted reducing the benefits after thirteen weeks, or if he 
has been pick one year at the time the Lodge adopts a byrlaw re- 
ducing the benefits after one year's consecutive sickness, the reduc- 
tion applies to such brother immediately, from and after the pas- 
sage of the by-law. See proceedings G. L. of Indiana, November, 
1888, pages 8U and 81; White's Digest, Sees. 27 and 28; also decision

J. W. Tingle, P. G. , from the same committee, submitted 
the following 

REPORT: 

To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on Petitions and Applications, to whom was 
referred the petition of Hardinsburg Lodge, No. 501, asking per- 
mission of the Grand Body to solicit aid from the sister Lodges to 
assist in building a Lodge hall, report that we have had the same 
under consideration and find the said Lodge has sustained a loss 
by fire of their Lodge property. We find that they were insured 
for $1,180. We further find by the report of the Secretary of 
Hardinsburg Lodge to the Grand Secretary June 30, 1894, the re- 
sources of said Hardinsburg Lodge was 13,333.56, which would in- 
dicate that this Lodge is in a very healthy condition financially, 
and we are of the opinion that they are amply able to take care of 
themselves. Therefore, we recommend that the petition be not 
granted. 

Which was concurred in. 

At this point in the proceedings a motion was made to 
appeal from the decision of the Acting Grand Master in 
deciding the vote on the report of the Committee on Peti-

Grand Master, and referring the question to a vote by 
Lodges. A point of order was raised by J. B. Cockrum

of a deceased brother of a Lodge dies leaving no children or 
dependent relatives, or relatives on whom she is dependent, and 
also leaving an estate sufficient to pay her funeral expenses, that 
no person is entitled to said benefits, but that the same should 
remain in the Lodge treasury. 

Which was laid over until to-morrow.

J. B. Kenner, P. G. Rep , from the Committee on

made by that committee on yesterday, in case of J. T. 
McShane vs. Carmel Lodge, No. 401, and in accordance 
with instructions submitted the following : 

No. 939. OPINION BY J. B. KENNER, P. G. M. 

To the Grand Ijodge, I. 0. 0. F., of Indiana : 
J. T. McShane vs. Carmel Lodge, No. 40L 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals, to whom was re- 
ferred the appeal of Bro. J. T. McShane, from the action of Zions- 
ville Lodge, No. 285, in expelling him from the Order, have had the 
same under consideration. 

We find, from an examination of the. whole record, that this case, 
together with the former trials and proceedings connected with it, 
have been in the Lodges or Grand Lodge since the early part of 
1 892, and in order that the Grand Lodge may have the history of 
this case, and the facts as shown by the record, we will briefly set 
out the facts. 

On the 21st of January, 1893, charges were filed in Carmel Lodge, 
No. 401, which, in substance, ciaarged Bro. McShane with seducing 



2366 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 



the wife of a brother, John A. Haines. Bro. McShane was at that 
time a prominent physician, and resided at Carmel, in Hamilton 
county. 

On or about the 7th of January, 1892, Dr. McShane was called 
to the house of said John A. Haines. Bro. McShane went, thinking 
he was called in a j^rofessional way. When he arrived he found 
John A. Haines and his wife there and no one sick, but Haines 
immediately charged him with seducing his wife. Dr, McShane 
at once became very angry and used some very strong language, 
and this language is the basis of the first charge in this case. Bro. 
McShane denied the charge made by Haines. 

After the charges were filed in the Lodge, for seduction, the 
Secretary took a copy of them to Bro. McShane, to his office, and 
delivered them to him in the presence of his wife, and a number 
of the doctor's patients. This conduct of the Secretary, at the 
place and under the circumstances, greatly angered Dr. McShane a 
second time, and he again indulged in the strong and intemperate 
language that is set out in the second charge in this case now on 
trial. Bro. McShane used improper and violent language, but, after 
cooling down, he wrote out and sent to his Lodge a full apology. 

The charge first spoken of, which charged Bro. McShane with 
seduction, came in for trial upon Carmel Lodge, and upon change 
of venue, was sent to Broad Ripple Lodge, and upon this trial he 
was found not guilty. 

A civil suit was also brought in the Circuit Court, but Haines 
abandoned that. 

We now come to the case before us. 

This case was first tried upon two charges ; 

The first charge set up that Bro. McShane when called 
to the house of John A. Haines, and charged by Haines 
of seducing his ( Haines' ) wife, used grossly vulgar and 
profane language in response to the charge made by 
Haines. The second charge is that 'when the Secretary 
delivered a copy of the charges to Bro. McShane, in the presence 
of his wife and several other persons not members of the Order, he 
renounced and denounced the Lodge and the Order in violent, 
defamatory, profane and ofiensive language, and put the copy in 
the fire. These charges were preferred after the original charges 
of seduction had been tried, and not sustained. 

A trial was had on these charges in Carmel Lodge, and the 
brother was expelled. There was an appeal to the Grand Lodge, 
and the action of the Lodge was reversed. (See Pro. of Grand 
Lodge, November, 1892, page 1469.) 

After the case was sent back to Carmel Lodge, a change of venue 
was taken, and the case was sent to Sheridan Lodge for trial. A 
trial was had, and the brother was again expelled. An appeal was 
taken again to this Grand Lodge, and again it was reversed and 
sent back. (See Pro. of Grand Lodge, May session, page 1882.) 

The case was returned to Sheridan Lodge, and by that Lodge 
returned to Carmel Lodge. The case slept there until the 28th 
of November, 1894. This was eighteen months after the Grand 
Lodge had reversed it the last time. 

On the 28th of November, 1894, the case was sent by Carmel 
Lodge to Zionsville, and a trial had. 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2367 

Many errors have been argued against the action of Zionsville 
Lodge in expelling Bro. McShane. 

Your committee has carefully examined this record, and the 
evidence and proceedings in the case, and have heard able and full 
oral arguments in the case by attorneys on both sides. 

The accused was notified when the case was sent to Zionsville 
Lodge, to appear and defend the case, and he appeared and filed a 
plea to the jurisdiction of Zionsville Lodge over this case or the ac- 
cused, on the ground that the record in Zionsville Lodge in this 
case does not show that any investigating committee was ever ap- 
pointed, and did actually prefer charges against him in this case. 

We have carefully examined the record and find no appoint- 
ment of an examining committee, whose duty it was to prefer 
charges. Therefore, so far as the record is concerned, none was 
ever appointed, and this Grand Lodge has decided again and 
again, under our present law, that unless charges are preferred by 
an investigating committee, no brother can be put upon trial, and 
unless the record shows this to have been done, Zionsville Lodge 
had no jurisdiction of the case or the person of the accused. The 
plea to the jurisdiction should have been therefore sustained, and 
it was error to overrule it. 

After the plea to the jurisdiction was filed, the accused asked 
the right to sustain his plea by proof, and that the Trial Committee 
rule on the plea, but the committee refused to do either, but held 
the plea and compelled the accused to go to trial on the merits, 
and made up their report and sent the question of the validity of 
the plea to the jurisdiction, to the Lodge, along with the report on 
the merits. 

We think this was error. 

A Trial Committee has full power to decide all questions arising 
on the trial, and settle all preliminary motions and questions, be- 
fore going to trial on the merits. 

If the plea to the jurisdiction was a valid 'one, and could have 
been sustained, then no trial was necessary and could not legally 
be held. 

Many other errors are alleged, and some of them, we think, are 
well taken, but inasmuch as we have taken the above views, your 
committee will not discuss all of them. 

We now desire to give our views upon the case on its general 
featurs and the evidence. 

It seems to your committee that the great persistency with which 
this case has been pressed after several reversals savors somewhat 
of persecution. 

After Bro. McShane was acquitted of the charge of seduction by 
Broad Ripple Lodge, it would seem that the main charge was set 
tied, and the hot, intemperate language of the brother growing out 
of this charge was only an incident of the main charge, and is ac- 
counted for by reason of a brother Odd Fellow charging him with a 
most serious and grave charge, of which he was innocent. 

After Dr. McShane had been acquitted of the charge of seduc- 
tion in Broad Ripple Lodge, out of which the charge in this case 
grew, and he had been practically acquitted of it in a civil court and 
given the manly apology to his Lodge which he did for his violent 
and angry language, it does seem that the principles of Odd Fellow- 



2368 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

ship ought to have extended to him the principles of charity and 
brotherly love. But it seems that no apology or repentance on his 
part had any v^eight in this case. 

We do not approve of the language used by the brother in any 
respect; it was angry and very intemperate, and wholly improper. 
But there are in this case, as this Grand Lodge has held similar lan- 
guage in other cases, extenuating and palliating circumstances for 
strong and intemperate language. See proceedings of Grand Lodge 
of Indiana, November session, 1890, page 756. 

What would any brother probably do or say when another 
brother called him to his house and in the presence of his wife 
charged him with ruining that wife, such charge being wholly false, 
and on trial found to be false. We submit that most men would 
boil over, and one would be inclined to express himself stongly. 

Then, again, when the Secretary of the Lodge presented copies 
of charges to the brother, in the presence of his wife and other per- 
sons, who were his patients and friends, it seems that either by in- 
tent or inadvertance it was intended to humiliate our brother in 
the presence of his wile and friends, and it is not to be wondered 
at that Dr. McShane became very much agitated, and for the mo- 
ment lost control of himself, and used the very improper language 
which was used, but after he recovered Lis usual frame of mind he 
promptly and fully apologized to his Lodge. 

We are fully of the opinion that, under these facts, it is excessive 
punishment to expel a brother who had always before been a good 
man, and has always been since. 

The strong and intemperate language used by Brother McShane, 
in the presence of the Secretary, was hot, violent and profane, aud 
we must condemn it, but, under the circumstances surrounding it, 
and provoked it, that there were extenuating and palliating cir- 
cumstances, which after the apology did not warrant the extreme 
penalty of expulsion ; besides this, your committee does not regard 
that the evidence sustains the charge of renouncing the Order. 

The brother did speak rashly about his Lodge, but it could not 
be construed to renounce the Order. 

Brother McShane got the idea in his mind that the Lodge was 
under the influence of Haines and their friends' influence, and that 
they were persecuting him, and this fact called out the strong lan- 
guage by the brother against the Lodge. 

That part of the charge which sets out that the brother burned 
the copies of the charges given him by the Secretary, was an im- 
proper charge. 

We believe it was error not to strike out that part of the second 
charge, and it was error to hear evidence on that subject, for the 
reason that when copies of charges are given to a brother, they are 
the brother's property, and for his information, and he can do what- 
ever he pleases with them, and if he destroys them, it is no offense 
against the Order. 

It appears in this whole transaction that Dr. McShane has always 
borne the reputation of a good man, both before and since this 
trouble, besides being eminent in his profession. This being the 
case, should a case of mere contempt against his Lodge, for that is 
all that we can make out of this charge, expel a brother from our 
Order, who has been an honored member for more than twenty 
years ? 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2369 

Your committee believe tliis case ought to be reversed, and inas- 
much as Dr. McShane has been tried three times and compelled to 
spend time and money to defend himself, and inasmuch as he ren- 
dered a manly apology, we think this ought to be an end of this 
case. We therefore offer the following : 

Resolved, That the action of Zionsville Lodge, in expelling Bro. 
J. T. McShane, be in all things reversed. 

J. B. Kenner, 
Enoch G. Hogate, 
J. B. Kimball, 

J. B. COCKRUM. 

By instructions of the Grand Lodge the action of Zionsville Lodge 
in expelling Bro. J. T. McShane is affirmed. 

J. B. Kenner. 

Which was concurred in. 

Deputy Grand Master C. F. Northt rn in deciding the 
question on point of order in the appeal taken from his 
decision adopting the report of the Committee on Petitions 
and Applications, granting a charter to Liberty Lodge, 
No. 710, in lieu of dispensation, stated that as there was 
some question as to the correctness of the vote taken yester- 
day another vote might be taken by unanimous consent, 
which was agreed to. Another vote was taken with fol- 
lowing result: Affirmative, 418; negative not counted. 
Pending further consideration, on motion ofD. B. Shideler, 
the report was concurred in by unanimous vote. 

The following appeal was submitted :* 

Notice is hereby given that I appeal to the Sovereign Grand 
Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., from the action of the Grand Lodge of Indiana 
in the case of John T. McShane vs. Carmel Lodge, No. 401, at the 
May session of said Grand Lodge of Indiana. 

John T. McShane. 

Appeal granted. 

S. P. Stroup, P. G. Rep., from the Committee on the 
State of the Order, submitted the following 

REPORT: 
To the Grand Lodge, I. O. O. K, of Indiana: 

Your Committee on the State of the Order, to which was referred 
so much of the report of the Grand Master as relates to the privi- 



2370 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

lege granted to the Grand Jurisdiction of North Dakota to solicit 
aid in our jurisdiction, would report that we have examined all the 
papers coming into our hands in connection with such subject, and 
find that the Grand Jurisdiction of Indiana contributed the sum of 
$971.51, for which the Grand Lodge of North Dakota commends 
this Grand Jurisdiction for its liberality. 

Which was concurred in. 

J. E. C. F. Harper, P. G. Rep., from the same com- 
mittee, submitted the following : 

REPORT: 
To the Gram! Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee oij the State of the Order, to which was refer- 
red so much of the Grand Master's report as relates to the Odd 
Fellows' Home, have duly considered the same, and respectfully 
report the following resolution: 

Resolved, That the Trustees of this Grand Lodge be instructed to 
pay to the Odd Fellows' Home the amount now due them from the 
Grand Lodge, in such sums as may from time to time be necessary, 
and raise the same by loan or otherwise. 

Which was concurred in. 

J. E. C. F. Harper, P. G. Rep., from the same com- 
mittee, submitted the following 

REPORT: 

To the Grand Lodge, I: 0. O. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on the State of the Order has had under con- 
sideration the following statement from Richmond Lodge, No. 254 : 

" To the Grand Lodge of Indiana, I. 0. 0. F.: 

" Richmond Lodge, No. 254, desires to submit the following 
statement: 

"On the 22nd of October, 1894, the application for membership 
by card of Thomas F. Swain was received in this Lodge. On the 
evening of the 29th of the same month the Committee of Investi- 
gation reported favorable. The Secretary was then instructed to 
ask Chinkaroror Lodge, No. 120, for a dispensation to admit him 
(he living nearer their Lodge than ours), Bro. Swain having taken 
his card from Webster Lodge, No. 371. (The accompanying dia- 
gram will illustrate the location of all the Lodges interested.) On 
November 3rd, 1894, Chinkaroror Lodge, by resolution, refused to 



GRAND LODGE OF INDIANA. 2371 

grant such dispensation. (See paper marked ' A,' and herewith 
enclosed.) On the 12th of the same month Richmond Lodge 
instructed the Secretary to ask a reason for such refusal. 
(See paper marked 'B'.) Then, again, on the 17th of the same 
month, Chinkaroror Lodge refused to recede from its former action, 
and also refused to give any reason therefor. (See paper marked 
'C'.) Now, therefore, Richmond Lodge petitions this Grand Body 
and prays that this Grand Lodge cause Chinkaroror Lodge, No. 120, 
to assign a reason for such refusal or prefer charges against Bro. P. 
O. Swain for annulment of card. (Signed C. R. Tingle, N. G., A. K. 
Deets, Sec'y, with the seal of Richmond Lodge, No. 254, attached)." 

Your committee finds upon examination of the correspondence 
between the two Lodges that the above statement is substantially 
correct. 

The correspondence does not show, however, that the proceed- 
ings in the matter have been in accordance with Section 10, Chap- 
ter II, General Laws, on page 22 of July edition, 1894. A refer- 
ence to that section will show that the whole matter is under con- 
trol of the Grand Master, and from his decision there can be no 
appeal. 

Your committee therefore asks to be discharged from the further 
-consideration of the subject. 

Which was concurred in. 

Representatives Wm. Lockhart, of No. 64, and J. H. 
<joldsmith, of No. 7, submitted the following : 

Amend Section 2, Article II, of the Constitution as follows : After 
the word "Indianapolis" insert — ''Provided, however, That the 
Semi-annual Communication of May, 1896, be dispensed with. " 

Which was laid over until next session and referred to 
the Legislative Committee. 

L. J. Monks, P. G., from the Legislative Committee, sub- 
mitted the following 

REPORT: 

To the Grand Lodge, I. 0. O. F., of Indiana : 

Your Committee on Legislation, to whom was referred the de- 
cisions of the Grand Master, to-wit : 

"Is a Past Grand of an old Lodge, who has never served as Vice 
Grand, eligible as Representative in this body ? 

" Under Section 3, Article I, of the Constitution of this Grand 
Lodge it is expressly provided that he is not, while in Section 1, 
Chapter XIX, General Laws, the only qualification required is that 
he shall be a Past Grand. 



2372 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

" At the May session, 1887, page 1182, the question was presented 
to the Legislative Committee of this body as to whether a Noble 
Grand who had not filled the oflBce of Vice Grand would be eligible 
as Representative. The committee, citing Section 5, Chapter III, of 
the General Laws, held that he would be, but the section of the 
Constitution above cited was not referred to in the decision, and 
believing the provision of the Constitution and the section of the 
General Laws are in conflict, that the Constitution would control, I 
held the Noble Grand under such circumstances would not be eli- 
gible as Representative, and submit it to you for your approval or 
disapproval " — have had the same under consideration, and recom- 
mend that the same be approved. 

Which was concurred in. 

L. J. Monks, P. G., from the same committee, submitted 
the following resoution : 

Your Committee on Legislation recommend the adoption of the 
following resolution : 

Resolved, That Section 3, of Article I of the Constitution, be 
amended to read as follows : 

Sec. 3. No person shall be eligible to a seat in this Grand Lodge 
unless he shall have served regularly as a V. G and N. G. at least 
one legal term in some Subordinate Lodge (except only in the case 
of the first N. G. and the first V. G. of a new Lodge), and in the 
case provided for in Section 5 of Chapter IlT of the General Laws. 
And these qualifications shall be, in all cases, certified io by the N. 
G. and Secretary of all Lodges concerned, and sealed with the seal 
of the same, before the Grand Lodge Degree shall be conferred upon 
any applicant for membership or Representative elect." 

Laid over until next session under the rules.

of the secret work, having arrived, W.' H. Leedy, Grand 
Instructor, assisted by J. B, Kenner, P. G. Rep., gave the 
instruction therein.

Your Committee on Subordinate Constitutions, to whom was 
referred the By-Laws of Golden Star Rebekah Lodge, No. 452, of 
Whiting, Indiana, have had the same under consideration, and 
make the following report ; While we find many of the provisions 
contained in said By-Laws which seem to us not necessary to the 
proper administration of the affairs of that branch of the Order, we 
have permitted them to remain because not in conflict with the 
Constitution and Laws of this Grand Lodge. We have, however, 
found many of the provisions thereof not in harmony therewith, 
and have therefore made such changes by erasures and insertions, 
as well as additions, as we believe will harmonize them with the 
General Laws. These changes have been so numerous that to set 
them out in detail in this report would extend the same to an 
unreasonable length, and we believe would not serve any good pur- 
pose. 

We therefore recommend that said By-Laws, as so changed by 
the committee, be approved. 

Which was concurred in.

tion of Wyoming asking permission to appeal to the Lodges of this 
jurisdiction for aid to assist in rebuilding a hall at Cheyenne, 
Wyoming, recently destroyed by fire, respectfully report that we 
have had the same under consideration and desire to say to our 
sister I'urisdiction that we deeply deplore their great financial loss 
and extend them our fraternal sympathies, but, in view of the 
numerous calls of a similar nature coming from our own jurisdic- 
tion, we deem it inexpedient to grant such request at this time, and 
recommend that the petition be not granted.
