A Crisis in the Affairs of the
Order at Hand.
Somerby's Philadelphia Bank Gees Inte
, the Hands.ef. an Assignee.
Bnpreme Accountant Walker Talk Frem

sion. In Indlannpelli li That the
Iren Hull U Deemed.
INDIANAI'OLIS, Ind., Aug. 17. The res res
pert telegraphed Tuesday from Phila
delphia that Somerby's bank had gene
, into the hands of an assignee, has
smqthered the little hope that remained
among the local members of the order,
that the Iren Hall would be able te tide
ever fts'difllculties. These of the plain
tiff's attorneys who did net go te Phlla-
'dclphla tire charging treachery en the
- pert of Semerbr and his associates in
throwing the Philadelphia bank into
the hands of an assignee.
It new crops out that the continuance
from last Saturday until Wednesday
morning was granted te give both par
ties te the suit opportunity te go te
Philadelphia and remove the funds of
the order from the bank te Indianap
olis. Once !n.Philadelphla, it is charged
that te prevent the removal of the funds
te Indianapolis, Semerby et al. assigned
te the bank's attorney, A. E. Stock
well. The universal impression here is that
the Iren Hall is deemed. The attor
neys for the plaintiffs declare that they
arc prepared te prove that the bank has
net sufficient assets te meet the de
mands of the Iren Hull alene; that the
total assets are only about 700,000,
,geed, bad and indifferent, that the
Iren Hall claim alone is $720,000, and
that the total cash In tlie bank, as
". shown by the bank examiner's report,
5V ,' Is only about 8100,000. .
g This was about te be put in evidence
v 'it when the case was adjourned last
T, ' Saturday, and the plaintiffs claim that
'r' the defendants asked for consultation
if in order that some steps may be taken
. - te protect whatever might be gotten
; from the bank, and make it available
" for the court te consider. One thing
that indicates the early and complete
:k - 'collapse of the order is the manner in
which the rank and file are deserting,
as rats will desert a burning ship.
Haucrhvlllc Iren Hallers held an In
formal but red-het meeting. Supreme
Vice-Justice Ames U. Hesmer, Supreme
Medical Examiner C. H. Uakcr, O. B.
Badger, representative from St Leuis,
and Jeseph Glading, supreme trustee,
of Philadelphia, honored the suburban
its with their company and were given
a courteeusyhearlng. In paying tribute
te Somerby the visitors asserted that he
had almost given up his life for the
geed of his fellow-me mbcrs in the
order, and that he was new little better
than a physical wreck. Moreover, his
"little home" in Philadelphia was shad
owed by a mortgage and he had n6t
made himself wenlthy at the expense of
these he had induced te join the organ
ization. The local members took a
hand in the discussion. J. II. Jacksen,
one of the trustees of the branch, said
that tha action taken by the members
must be based upon business and net
sympathy. Te them It was new purely
a matter of dollars and cents.
While it was doubtless true that a
mortgage was resting upon Mr. Sem
erby's home, they should remember
' that the homes of probably two-thirds
- of the members were mortgaged, who
Selvere looking forward te the maturing
