Interesting Case Decided by
Knights of Honor.
THE COLLECTION OF DUES
A Change Made in the Whole Method.
Death of Another Member Re?
ported?Failure to Reduce
At Its ?-esslnn held tn the Masonic Tem?
ple In tills city yesterday the Supreme
Lodge, Knights of Honor, handed down
an important decision In an appeal coso
which has attracted considerable atten?
tion, and over which thero appears to
have been consid?rable discussion.
Just what aro tho details In this Inter?
ettliig caso cannot bo ascertained. Mem?
bers are chary of discussing the matter,
and the chairman of the Press Committee
likewise declines to speak. Only tho mere
fact of tho appeal and tho decision aro
given out for publication,
Tho appellant in the caso was A. S.
Brand, of Louisiana. For somo cause,
which Is not stated, this member was 8US
spended, but was afterwards reinstated
by the grand dictator of the State. Ope
lousas Lodge, No. 34i)7, appealed from the
decision of the grand dictator and carried
tho matter before the supremo dictator
of the order. Here tho decision of the
Stale olllccr wa.; reversed on a question
of law, Brand himself thereupon ap?
pealed from tills opinion to tho Supreme
Lodge, the linai court. Tho question
enmo up yesterday In the Supremo Lodge,
and the decision of the supremo dictator
himself vas reversed and tho Loulslanlan
was again reinstated, it was a clear and
decl?ivc victory for tho appellant.
Thu meeting of tho Supreme Lodgo was
called to order at the usual hour yester?
day morning by tlio supremo dictator.
The body at once got down to business,
and during the day several matters ot
Interest and Importance to tho members
wero brought up and discussed.
Perhaps the most generally Important
matter of the day was a change In tho
entire method of collecting tho general
fund assessment and tho lodge dues.
Heretofore the general fund assessment
for tho Supremo Lodge has been >":.60 per
annum, payable every quarter In forty
cents Instalments. Tha law was changed
so that this assessment shall bo $1.56,
payable nt the rate of thirteen cents each
month. In addition, the lodge dues are.
made payable in monthly Instalments of
not less than twenty-five cents. The*
Instalments for tho benefit of the general
fund and tho lodge dues oro made payable
at tho samo time and In the same man?
ner, with the same penalties for non?
payment as the benefit fund assessments.
The new law will go Into effect December
1, 1803, It provides for a slight uecreaso
in expense to tho members.
Another death of a well known member
has Just occurred to further mako this
session of the lodge a. gloomy ono. A
telegram received yesterday and read In
the convention announced the death
Thursday night of Supreme Representa?
tive Murray; of Massachusetts.
An Invitation has boon received to
visit, the Virginia Club, which Is domiciled
In the old Van Lew residence. Many
have already accepted, and others will
visit the interesting old place befor-3 thoy
MEMBERSHIP AND SALARIES.
Considerable discussion developed yes?
terday over the terms of membership
o? certain of the members, who are al?
ways chosen for two sessions of the Su?
premo Lodge. It was decided that tho
term of those elected since lost July,
when the change was mado to biennial
passions, and whose service began at
this session, should extend through the
full four years.
An effort was made to reduce the sala?
ries nnd the allowances for clerk biro for
the supremo dictator and the supremo
treasurer, but tho movement failed.
Tho ' appeal case of A. S. Brand, ???
Louisiana, was taken up and disposed
of In the manner Indicated above.
It. was voted to create Georgo XV. Ten?
der, Jr., of Indiana, nnd Henry Walters,
of Louisiana, past grand dictators for
meritorious services. The appointments
wore requested through petitions from the
respective Grand Lodges of the two
It. was also voted to donate a full set
of supplies to tho Vermont Lodge, at
Jacksonville. Vermont, which recently
lost, its building, supplies, etc., In a fire.
Notts of the Meeting.
The present session of tho Supremo
.Lodge is ono of the most thoroughly
pleased and harmonious ever held. The
visitors seem to bo pleased with the city
ir.d with Ihe arrangements made for
them. Up to this lime there has been no
iiiggtstloii of the next meeting place.

Smith Is tho pastor. Special seat?? will

of tlie order will lie welcomed by the
congr?gation. An attractive musical pra
gramnio has been arranged. Tho lodge
will assemblo Sunday morning at 10:30
o'clock at the Jefferson, and will attend
tho si I'vlces In a body.
A notable feature nf tho present conven?

of Indies, the wives and daughters of tho
members, The ladles will meot nt 0:.'10
o'clock at the Jefferson this morning,
and will take ? ride over the city, visit?
ing the various points of interest.

The eyes of all loyal Virginians, of all
who love tho State, cherish her glorious
history and havo fncos turned hopefully
to tho future; all who believe In tho be?
neficent effects of higher education and
tho Intellectual training of all the peo?
ple of the Commonwealth; tho eyes of
oil these are to-day turned toward the
University of Virginia, whore at noon
the Board of Visitors assembles for the
election of the first president of the in?
stitution bullded by tho combined fore?
sight, energy and Intellectual power of
Jefferson and Cabell ever had.
This meeting Is the most Important this
body ever held. Tho Immediate future
and much of the Hie of the great school,
with Its broad, upbuilding Influences, Is to
be placed in the hands of one man. It Is
needless to dwell upon the Importance of
the duty which falls to tho board. They
and tho alumni throughout the country
Cully appreciate It, as shown by the nu?
merous meetings tho latter havo held in
almost every Important city In tho East.
These have expressed tho utmost confi?
dence In the board, particularly the large
Richmond chapter, whlcn refrained from
eevn making a suggestion.
NOT COMMITTING THEMSELVES.
Tho members of the board have been
most careful not to commit themselves.
No one knows how they came to bo sug?
gested, but the alumni, public or news?
papers havo picked out certain men and
settled on these, from whom It Is sup?
posed tho selection Is to be made. They
aro Professor John Bassott Mooro. of Co?
lumbia University; President Charles XV.
Dahnoy, of the University of Tennessee;
President Frank Venable, of tho Univer?
sity of North Carolina; Colonel George
W. Miles, of Radford, and some mention
has been mado of former President Gro
y?r Cleveland. The ono man on whom
all the alumni who bave takon definito
action at all have settled Is Professor
Moore. No mortal man can say that he
or any of those named will bo chosen.
The board may go outside of these alto?
Not many of tho Richmond alumni take
tho mention of Mr. Cleveland's name In
connection with tho position seriously.
It is exceedingly doubtful If he would
accept If elected.
Hon. Eppa Hunton, Jr., tho Richmond
member, went to Atlanta Thursday. He
was to go from there to Charlottesvllle
last night. Hon. Henry C. Stuart, of the
Southwest, who Is residing here because
a member of tho Corporation Commis?
sion, went up last night to bo on hand
promptly at 12 o'clock.
