Annual Convention of State
Woodmen Workers Opens
CRITICISM IE0H ME. KOETHCOTT
Says Lack of Energy is Cause o
Falling Under Record
The annual meeting of state depu
ties of the Modern Woodmen con
vened at M. W. A. hill in the Carse
block at 10 o'clock this morning
About 50 state and district deputies
attended the opening session, repre
senting nearly all parts of the United
States from Portland. Maire, aid
Portland, Oregon. The board of di
rectors of the Woodmen and the board
of supreme managers of the Royal
Neighbors were in attendance.
Ileal Consul W. A. Northcott pre
sided and made the opening address
His remarks were chietly devoted to
the falling oil in the rate of gain
in new camps and adoptions for the
year lUOO as compired with lo'jy.
and a severe criticism of the state
An Appeal to Deputies
For ten years he said he had been
appealing to the jurisdiction in be
half of the state deputies, but now he
proposed to reverse the order ami ap
peal to the deputies in behalf
of the jurisdiction. Mr. Northcott
then read statistics from the
several states comparing the gains for
the present year with those of last
year." In the older states they showed
a material falliDg oil, while in some
of he new ones tney barely held their
own. Colorado, Ualahonia ana Cali
fornia made the best showing, in fact
their records, the speaker said, had
never been equalled by any fraternal
insurance order in anv state.
The fault for the poor showing the
head consul at'.ributed to lack of pro
per energy on the part or tne slate
deputies. They had failed to secure
the best possible work from their
district deputies. He included him
self in the criticism, admitting that
he had possibly devoted too much
time to other matters.
Maj. Hawes on Supplied.
Head Clerk C. W. Hawes read a pa
per on "iiur buppiy uenartment.
lhe laws governing tnis very import
ant department, he said, had been of
gradual development Thesvsiem of
free supplies to deputies adopted in
ltv.'.ihad wrought much good and re-
suited in an immediate increase in
the growth of tbe order. After read
ing figures showing the cost of the
free supplies, the major intimated
that the deputies were very well
treated. He protested against depu
ties working in the interests of out
side hrrus in view of the fact that the.
order furnished everything needful to
members &l 10 per cent above cost
lhe balance of tb9 paper was devoted
to affairs, connected with the head
olli'e, closing with a llattering eulogy
of Head Consul Xorthcott.
On suggestion of different parties
the honors of the order were paid
in turn to the head consul, the head
clerk, the board of directors of the
Woodmen, and the board of supreme
managers of the Koval Neighbors.
The morning session closed with an
address by State Deputy C. J. Byrns,
of Michigan, on ' How to Secure Good
Deputies and Organize a District
Properly," with discussion bv E. M.
Tousley and J. S. Shearer.
At this afternoon's meeting the
main addresses were made by u. 1.
