NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY JULY 27, 1917.
GRAND CHANCELLOR CRAW
(Continued from page 1.)
have it be, one of the progressive de
partments of the Order, attracting
to It the best young men of the race.
At the Bession held here In Nash
ville last year you levied a tax upon
each member of the Order for the
benefit of the Uniform Rank. This
tax has been paid by quite a number
of the members and has been of much
benefit to the rank In helping it carry
on successfully Its affairs. it is
"hoped that for the first time in the
history of the Grand Lodge of Tennes
see that we will be well represented
at the Supreme Lodge Encampment
by the Uniform Rank. This Encamp
ment will be held in St. Louis, Mo.,
next month. If you have not already
organized a Uniform Rank in your
lodge, let me urge upon you to return
home and proceed at once to organize
a company, and I am sure that by so
doing you will infuse new life into
your lodge, and attract young meu
Who are now outside of the Order.
.On account of the high cost of liv
ing and because of the change in the
meeting place or the Grand Lodge,
at so late a date, it was deemed wise
not to bold an encampment at this
session; and, too, as it was intended
to have as great a number of the
rank attend the great Encampment at
St. Louis as possible, many not being
Able to get a leave of absence from
their places of employment more than
once during the summer.
I am pleased to be able to report
to you that the law department has
guarded carefully all the legal inter
sts of the Order that have arisen
trom time to time. Our Grand At
torney, Sir J. C. Napier, has at all
times displayed tact and skill in
handling all matters coming to him,
and has safely steered us over many
entanglements that were calculated to
involve us in litigation had they not
heen carefully and Judiciously han
dled. We have several cases pending now
a.gainst the board, but they are cases
that we feel we have no just right to
pay and hence the suits.
We have been extremely fortunate
in handling the many cases that came
up for adjustment, in not having
more lawsuits than we have, but wher
ever a claim has the least semblance
of being a just one we make haste
to pay it, believing that it is better to
err on the side of mercy than to in
volve the Order in a long strung-out
lawsuit upon a mere technicality.
This department of the Order is
new. It went into operation October
1, 1916. A full report of its opera
tion will be made to you at this ses-
sion by those whose business it is to
handle the affairs of the Burial
Bureau. It was quite a while before
we could convince the rank and file
of the Order that it was a wise piece
of legislation to operate the burial
. department in conjunction with the
-Order; but I feel safe in saying that
' all of you will agree with me that
the Order took an advance step when
it"-uecided to add this feature.
If I mistake not, the secretary of
this department has informed me that
every single claim has been paid.
'Think what a source of pleasure it
ought, to be to all of us to know that
the obligation to bury our brethren
has been carried out absolutely and
there are no undertakers and others
complaining because of the failure of
our lodges to promptly pay them for
their services in burying our dead.
Such promptness in all affairs that
come to us financially will give the
Order that prestige that will cause
those on the outside to nock to its
standard and crowd its doors for en
trance. Bear in mind, too, that all this has
been accomplished without adding a
single penny to the taxes or dues ,of
Immediately after the adjournment
of .the Grand Lodge Session in July,
J 1917, a proclamation was issued de-
.-' tailing an account of the important
legislation that was enacted at the
session of the Grand Lodge. This
proclamation was sent to all of the
lodges for their guidance and consld'
Another proclamation followed
shortly after the first calling attention
to the "Uniform Rank Tax" and the
"Establishing of the Burial Bureau."
.'The following was the proclamation:
Proclamation No. 2, Series B.
To the Chancellor Commander, Of
, fleers and Members of the Subordi
i nate Lodges of the Above Jurisdic
) tion, Greetings:
Be it Known that the following
legislation was enacted by the Grand
Lodge of the above named Jurisdiction
at its last session held in Nashville,
Tenn., July 11 to 14, inclusive.
Uniform Rank Tax.
A tax of two cents per member
each month was levied upon each
member of the Order for the support
and maintenance of the Uniform
This tax is to remain in force for
two (2) years, until the uniform rank
is built up to that point where it will
Increase of Endowment Premiums.
Owing to the great increase in the
death rate of our members, and be
cause of the fact that our obligations
to our widows and orphans in the way
of death benefits for deceased mem
. bers have reached the point where
hey are larger than the premiums
paid in each quarter, it became abso
lutely necessary for the Grand Lodge
to increase the anarterly premiums
for Endowment from one ($1.00) dol-
lar per quarter to one ?nd twenty-hun-i
dreds or 1.20 per quarter, beginning
- October 1st, 191B.
A Burial Department was estab
lished whereby each member ot the
Orr-would receive a fifty ($."0) dol
lar "burial. This department will go
into effect October 1, 1916. Every
lodge in the entire juris 'iction must
hecome a member of this department..
The secretary of the Endowment.
Board will handle this department.
The Grand Master of Exchequer will
beVthe treasurer. You will be fur
nished later with laws governing the
Burial Bureau. These laws will be

Sir L. E. Brown, 625 Walker avenue,
Memphis, Tenn., to be known as

the Order in good standing will re
ceive a fifty ($50) dollar burial.
No additional tax is to be placed
upon the member, but the ten cents
will be deducted from the regular
monthly dues paid by the member. It.
may be more convenient to send this
burial tax quarterly, if so that may
be done. Each lodge must let this
tax reach L. E. Brown by October 1,
1916. Blanks for this tax will be fur
nished by L. E. Brown. Don't fail to
comply with this mandate, if you
would keep your lodge in good stand
ing in the Order.
It is sincerely hoped that each
chancellor commander, each officer
and each member of out lodges will
take kindly to this progressive legis
lation ot our order and help us to car
ry it into effect and thus make our
order one of the leading factors in
helping to solve the many questions
that confront us as a race. I am
sure that your race pride and your
love for the order of your choice will
Inspire you to do your duty in full
in carrying out the provisions of this
proclamation. With an abiding faith
in your loyalty and patriotism to the
order and the race, I am,

The next act of mine was to pro
ceed to get out the literature and the
laws and regulations necessary to
Inaugurate the. Burial Department
which was to go Into effect October
The Committee on Law and Supervi
sion was communicated with and that
committee furnished me with a rough
draught of laws to govern the depart
ment. These laws, together with oth
er literature, was compiled and for
warded to the secretary of the En
dowment Department to be sent to
every lodge for their guidance, etc.
I am pleased to say to you in this
report that practically all lodges com
piled with the same. I think that
possibly there are one or two lodges
that have not done so. I would urge
you to say at this session just what
penalty shall he placed upon lodges
not complying with the enactments of
this Grand Lodge.
The following resolution was read
and adopted without opposition at the
session of the Granl Lodge, held here
in Nashville, Tulv 11 to H, 1916
"Officers and Members Grand Lodge
Knights of Pythias North America,
South America, Europe, Asia, Africa
We, your Committee on Internal
Improvements, beg leave to submit
the following report: We are of the
unanimous opinion that our state to
keep in the line of progress with our
sister states must at once take steps
to erect a Pythian iTemple.
We further recommend that a com
mittee of seven be appointed with
power to formulate plans and to act
and to present the same at our next
session of the Grand Lodge."
Acting In conformity with the above
report as adopted by you, the follow
ing commission was appointed to
carry into effect the provisions of the
report of your Committee on Internal
Improvements: Wayman Wilkerson,
Chairman; Dr. R. W. Allen, A. W.
Flte, Preston Taylor, T. Clay Moore,
A. S. Pyles, A. N. Johnson, Dr. C. O.
Hunter and J. P. Crawford.
You will notice that the resolution
called for seven and nine were ap
pointed. In appointing this commis
sion we kept in mind the expense at
tached and appointed five of the
Grand Lodge officers as they would
have to attend the session of the
Grand Lodge anyway and would not
entail any additional expense.
This commission met and has acted
according to the provisions of the re
port and will make a full report of
what has been done for your earnest
Proclamation for the "Annual
Thanksgiving Sermon and for "Me
morial Day" were gotten out and for
warded to the lodges in due time.
I am forced rfo say that in some in
stances very little attention is paid
to the observance of these special
days, set apart by the Order. This
ought not to be, no lodge ought to
be allowed to Ignore any of the
rites, ceremonies, or obligations of
our Order, for to do bo only paves
the way for .greater neglect of the
obligations, laws and mandates of
the order; and it will be only a ques
tion of a little while before the whole
fabric of our institution will be de
stroyed by negelct and insubordina
tion. Our first obligation is obedience
and when a lodge or member sets
at naught the slightest of our laws
and enactments, such a lodge or mem
ber ought to be dealt with in a man
ner that will prevent the recurrence
of such disregard for law and order
I wish to recommend that the ses
sion of the Grand Lodue be made as
bhort as possible, because of tho
stringency of the times and the high
cost of living. I also recommend that
the legislation of this session be con
fined to perfecting the laws and regu
lations of the Burial Bureau, and the
Pythian Temple. iThe Temple has.
been bargained for, and a payment
has been made on the same, and if
you would save the money already
spent, you must put aside all preju
dices and get together and formu
late eome plans by which, we may
meet the remainder of the payments.
Let us face our responsibilities like
men, and prove to the world that the
Order of Knights of Pythias is com
posed of men, and not mere pygmies
In view of the fact that It is not

tion, appointments, service and refined . patronnge. Orchestra daily, garage,
bath houses, tennis, etc., on premises. Special attention given to ladies and
children. Send for booklet. E.
now a question of whether we shall
have a Temple or not, but rather, how
thall we pay for the one already
bought, I prtiscnt the following plan
by which it may be paid for and urge
its adoption by you unless a belter
plan is suggested by some one Jlse.
The plan is as f jilows: Assess each
member of the order one ($1.00) dol
lar a year, for liv- consecutive yeai'3,
giving each member credit or receipt
fot the amount paid, until the su.n of
five ($5.00) do)lars has been paid.
Then issue to each member a share
cf stock in the Tomnle showing th.
he has paid five dollars and owns that
amount of stock lu the Temple. Each
share of stock when paid for, hearing
Interest at the usual rate of interest.
It also being provided that said
shares of stock be redeemable by (he
Grand Lodte at statu! periods, pro
vided that c. member cf the order can
only disprse of stock to the Grand
Lodge, of course this plan and the
ruies givuning same would have tr
be enco r.hed in legal form.
I wou' 1 ?ecommend tnnt this Grand
Lodge appoint a strong committee at
this session to confer vvPi the Court
of Calanlhe as to the Pythian Tem
ple with a view of havi ; them take
a part lr this project.
Thero pre several other important
matters that ought to come before
us, but I believe 'that if we succeed
in legislating wisely concernina tho
Pythian Temple and the Burial
bureau that we shall have accomplish
ed much for the future of our Order.
The secretary of the Endowment
Department has been notified by the
Insurance Commission to put some of
its money of that department out on
interest, it being his contention that
there is too much of it lying idle in
the banks. He also demands that he
be advised with as to the loans made.
He also says that not more-'than I
$5,000 should be kept in the banks
by you at any time. .1 recommend
that you act upon this matter at this
1 recommend that In view of the
fact that many of our young men are
b6'ng caller" to Arms to support the
honor and dignity of our country, and
since there is n tioubt that many of
them will bo killed, that this Gran
I odge takd some action as to tneii

ment and Just h(:w the Beard's liabil
ity will be atfected.
During our txis ence as a Grand
I I dge we have succeeded in organic

i'F! subordinate lo-lges. Many of

there, subjecting the secrets and
mysteries of our Order to exposure
Now, I believe that, with the proper
effort put torth many of these de-:
funct lodees could be re-established 1
and started to going again. For this
reason I recommend that you consider ,
the advisability of putting Into the
i field a general organizer whose busl-
ness it will be to look after the work
of resurrecting defunct lodges and as
sisting the weak ones to enlarge their
membership. If this is done I feel
sure that the next year will show a
fine increase in the number of our
membership and In the number of re
established lodges now defunct.
I here propose another plan for pay
ing for our Temple just purchased by
the Pythian Temple Commission.
iThe Burial Bureau law provided
that the surplus from that department
each year be turned Into the Endow
ment Department's treasury, I recom
mend that said surplus be turned
over to the Commission and that to-J
gether with revenue from Temple be
used in meeting payments on said
building. This will preclude the ne
cessity of taxing the members at this
I recommend that you go on record
at this session, by pledging your loy
alty to our government, by showing
your willingness to co-operate in any
way possible to assist the president
of these United States in successful
ly carrying on the struggle in which
our country is now engaged. Reso
lutions to this effect will be in order.
And now in conclusion permit me
to say that I trust that you will con
front the task here presented to you
with the fortitude of true and brave
men, determined to do that and" only
that which will bring success not only
to our order, but to the entire race.
May I extend to you all my sincere
thanks for the courtesy and consid
eration shown me and the helo given
all these years to make the order
one Grand Success. May long life,
happiness and prosperity attend you
all is my sincere prayer.

PATRIOTIC GATHERING IN
(Continued from page 1.)
enry Allen Boyd. The speaker paid
high tribute to the thrift and strides
evidenced by the people of Paducah in
maintaining their high racial stand
ard. He took pains on the outset to
pay compliments to those business and
professional men of the city who had
taken part in making the exhibits in
tho basement of the church a success.
He declared that the opportunity of ap
pearing in this section of Kentucky
another time was as enjoyable to him,
as he hoped It was to the citizens
themselves. For one hour he spoke.
He was given prolonged applause by
the magniflcient audience, present.
Notable among those who assisted the
Paducah citizens in making the de
monstration meeting a success, aside
from those who appeared on program
were attorney and Mrs. J. W. Egester,
Dr. and Mrs. C. W. Dawson, Rev.
Dr. Chnvls and Daughter, Dr. Royal
W. Grubbs, Mr. Charles J.'Boyd and

of the leaders of this city.

Brave Knights were cheered ail along,
the way. Brigadier-General Preston
Taylor although detained and pre
vented from going by engagements,
had designated Adjutant Boyd and
Major Hall, Lieutenant McClellan, to
represent the Staff. At the Fair
Grounds proper there were amuse
ments that kept the great crowd en
tertained throughout the day. A
Basket dinner was served, athletics of
all kinds indulged in.
"I suffered with asthma for eight
years. I tried a number ot doctors and
all the different kinds ot medicines I
could hear of, but got no relief. In
stead, I steadily grew worse.
"I finally tried Lung-Vita and have
used three bottles to date. And since
I have been using this medicine my
asthma has not bothered me at all.
Previously I could hardly sleep at
night. Would have smothering spells
and would have to get up. During
these spells I frequently became black
in the face. Now, however, I sleep
well and am not bothered in this way
at all. I recommend Lung-Vita to
people suffering in this way."

Beulah Brown, 188 7th Ave., N., dated
June 7, 1917.
