ORDER OF TONTI ASSIGNS
Its Affairs in Hopeless and Irremedi
STATEMENT OP ITS PRESIDENT
A Bill Filed In Court Showing That the
Company Has Been Badly and Recklcislv
Managed and Has in Many Instances Se
riously Violatod IU Constitution and laws.
PniLADELrniA, May 18. The Order of
Tontl mado an assignment to the Land, Title
and Trust Company and Trancls Shunek
Brown, the order's nttomoy, this afternoon.
Tho assets ate estimated at 81,250,000. A
lull disclosure ot the methods employed by
the order and its officers, which have resulted
In what looks to be a collapse ot the order, is
contained in the bill in equity Bled in the
common pleas court to-day.
Tho complainants, who comprise many of
tho general officers of tho order, state that
they aro nil membors in good standing, having
paid In sums ranging from S150 to 8300, and
that they aro holdersof relief fund certlflcates
ot 51,000 each. To moet the liabilities ac
crued and to nccruo upOD tho certlflcates of
membership Issued tho constitution and laws
of tho order required the respondents to es
tablish n relief fund, and for that purpose to
ley assessments upon nil membors equally.
Notwithstanding this duty imposed upon
them, tho bill says, they did not during tho
earlier years of tho order levy such assess
ments ns wero necessary to create a relief
fund sufficient to meet tho obligations of the
To show tho hopeless insolvency of tho
order, tho bill st 9 ;hat several hundred cer
tificates pro Iding for the payment of sums
ranging from 5200 to 1.000 hae matured
since March 21 last, requiring in tho aggre
gate tho pajment of upward of 5250 000, and
these ha 0 not been paid, nor is there any
sufficient fund upon which the order can
During the next two jears certificates will
mature requiring thepajment of 58,000,000,
showing au a err.ge monthly liability, in ad
dition to that already ehargd against the
order, of 333,333.23. Besides this the order
is now under an average liability of 525,000
per month for sick benefits. paable under us
ccrtlilcates. 'ihero no now about 1G,000
members iu good standing in tho order, 12,000
of whom arc, according to tho position as
sumed by tho defendants, liable to the pay
ment of three assessments per month.
At a session of the supreme lodge in Brook
lyn on April 3 last the then supreme see re-
tary, D. II. Kennev, reported that the liabili
ties during tho next two jears from the ma
turing of certlflcates would be about "G.0O0,
C00. After tha adjournment of the supreme
lodge the books were audited, and it was
discovered that Kenney's estimate was sJ,
000,000 short of the em liabilities, and to
the extraordinary number of 200 assessments
la n hinglo call ten more were added.
During n'no jcars of the order's hltory,
and until April 11, 1891. it is nllcgcd, tho
order had collected from asesinents levied
for the purpose of relief iol0.2"4.19. During
a largo part of this period there has been a
membership approaching 25,000, from which
this fund was received. It will require dur
ing tho next two 3 ears th collection of 8,
0CO.000 from a membership ot lb,000 and
now rapid! decreasing, mid tlih sum, If col
lected, will" discharge the liabilities of the
order for only two years.
The order is Involved, the bill savs, In bODe
less.tnd lrremedlablo insolvency In conse
quence of the neglect and mismanagement of
tho officers and the violation of Its constitu
tion and law.
Like the bill previously filed, this one pravs
the court to grant an injunction restraining
tho orderfrom levviugthe delit assessment or
collecting an kind') of funds frou the certificate-holders,
and from disposing of or in
cumbering lt3 ocrt.
Supreme Ircidtnt Clausen, whtn seen at
his oflltu this n'tcrnoon regarding the assign
ment, said tl nt v,'l "a ho was first elccteJ to
