History of the Proceeding Growing Out
or the ()uh Mectlnc How tbo Will
of the Great OrKanizatloa Wi Thwarted
What la Now to be Done.
The history of the movement on
the,part of the M. W. A. order to
move its head oflies to Rock Island
and what it has had to contend with
in so doing, will be read with inter
The last session of. the bead camp
instructed the Doara to remove the
head office of the order from Fulton
to Kock Island, where arrangements
bad been made to provide the order
with temporary oflices and furnish it
with a site upon which this board
was instructed to erect a suitable
building for the permanent head
offices of the order. During
a meeting of the board of
organization, held at Fulton im
mediately after the adjournment of
the head camp, each member of the
board, as well as the head consul and
head clerk was served with process
in a proceeding which had been com
menced in the circuit court of White
side county. 111., (in which, county
the city of Fulton is located), by cer
tain members of the order, and other
residents of Fulton, to enjoin the
order from carrying out the instruc
t'ons of the head camp with respect
to said removal, and each nf the ofli
cers was served with a copy
of a temporary restraining order
which had been issued in this
suit by the judge of the court in
which it had been commenced. An
investigation showed that the Fulton
citizens who had commenced this
suit based their objection to the re
moval upon the grounds that the
head camp held at Omaha was an il
legal body, having been held outside
the slate in which the order was in
corporated, hence any action of it,
ordering a removal, was null and
void. Further, that the- vote taken
on the removal question bad been
participated in by the head officers
and members of committees, while,
under the peculiar wording of one
clause, only the delegates should
have been allowed to vote on this
question, and that the proposition to
remove to Bock Island did not re
ceive a two-thirds vote of the dele
gates present at the head camp.
Other questions were raised, but
these two were the principal ones,
and the ones relied upon.
The board, considering all of the
grounds set out in the bill of com
plaint, (except possibly the first
above stated) insufficient, interposed
a demurrer, and, for the purpose of
strengthening the order's position as
to the first of these objections as well
as to settle this question for the
future, had introduced and passed by
the Illinois legislature an amend
went to the act under which this
order is incorporated, expressly pro
viding that any society organized or
doing business under that act
May transact any business out
side of the state of Illinois that it
can or may do in the state of Illinois,
and anv business heretofore tran
sacted outside of this state by any
such organization, which would be
legal if done within the state, is
herebv legalized and made valid.
After securing this legislation, the
questions involved in the case were
argued before Judge Crabtree, of the
Whiteside circuit, on the pending
demurrer. The holding of the court
was against the order and based on
the second ground set out above, the
court holding that the resolution in
favor of removal was in effect.
change in our laws, and under the
peculiar phraseology of the section
above alluded to, wnly delegates
could vote, and not officers nor mem
bers of standing committees. The
directors, contention on this point
was that the relocation of the head
office was not an amendment of the
by-laws, but the charter, and hence,
the section of our laws above indi
cated, had no application.
Upon the court intimating, in its
action on the demurrer, its view of
the case, it was considered useless to
press the matter further, as the
record of the head camp would not
show a two-thirds vote of the dele
gates present there, in favor of the
Kock Island resolution, if officers
and members of standing committees
were to be excluded. So the dircc
"This action on the part of the
Fulton citizens who commenced it
has been very unfortunate for the
order. The necessity for safer and
more convenient quarters for the
head office were, two years ago, very
apparent. The records of such an
order as ours comprehend the very
lire of the institution, and, if de
stroyed, could never be replaced, nor
could a new organization be
effected except in the midst
of unspeakable confusion and
at an expense of at least fo.OOO. Two
years ago it was pointed out to the
head camp that there was no ade
quate protection for our property
and records in our present quarters.
True we had a large so-called Are
proof vault, but it could be called
such only by courtesy; any ordinary
fire would make ashes of its contents
in an hour. The result of thUthow.
iug to the lai-t head camp was the
adoption of the resolution of removal
and the provision for an adequate
tire-proof building. Had we been al
lowed to carry out the expressed
will of the bead 'camp the dangers
aborp adverted to, would have been
promptly ended. Instead of this
they have constantly mumpiiea.
Our records are now far beyond the
capacity cf the vault, only the most
valuable being -kept in tnat over
flowing receptable. and the balance
in the ordinary office rooms. Since
the last head camp the mailing list
has been added to our property. It
could hardly be replaced for $ 6.000.
One hour's fire would wipe it oat of
existence. The books and records
of the office have been doubled since
1892, and all are at the mercy of the
fl lines. Insurance cannot protect
the order's interest in these
things. The board has done
all in its power to minimize
the risk, by providing a large iron
proof safe, chemical fire extinguish
ers in all parts of the office, and the
employment of a night watchman,
but the risk which the order is run
ning in its present office quarters is
so far beyond the power pf words to
express that it should call for the
prompt and effectual action of this
head camp, to provide adequate' pro
tection, either at Fulton or some
.The Xecwiary Work.
Now in order to finally determine
the location it is necessary that the
delegates in head camp meeting at
Madison, Wis., by a two-thirds vote
relocate the head office, which action
must then be ratified bv the directors
in the state of Illinois. The
directors are believed to be for Kock
Island without exception, bo will
