ELKS TO ORGANIZE
WITHIN ONE MONTH
Indications Are Ne.v Rock
Ccfora April 1.
Ti:o meeting of the Elks who ar-
in charge of the preliminaries to the
organization of a branch of the order
in Kock Island will be postponed, ow-
jns to nK. apjiearance of Otis Skinner
at the Illinois this evening, when
tile meeting was to have been held.
The committee is meeting with great
encouragement in their efforts. and al
ready the charter list has been sign
ed by 5it applicants. It is probable
that the' original plan to eirganize the
lodge' here in May. when the state as
sociation meets in Moline, will not be
carried u:t. The pre-seii' intention is
to rl:.;e the list and pre'sent it to the
Moline lodge for actiem within the' next
two wee ks. It is necessary, necor ling
to the regulations eif the order, that 25
ef the' applicants le accepted by the
Moline lodge, before a charter can be
secured. The change of plans is due
to the fact that all interest during the
wick of the convention wi.l be center-
of April. Otherwise they would not
care to withdraw until July, the close
of the second quarter. With the large

"The complainants' share of the ac
cumulated fund for the season of 11)01
eloes not appear from the bill to be
denied or withheld, and only, as re
spects this fund, is there any right te
accounting. There does not appear
to have been any mutuality in the con
tract between the complainant and de
fondants. It does not appear conipluin-
and was under any obligation to re
main a member ef the league any
! length of time, or, was required to
(consult the other members of the
league when it wished to te-rminate its
membership by resignation. Com
plainant had a right to withdraw from
membership at any time under the
destitution or articles of association.
Another view of the case, the resolu
tion of the clubs in dropping the com
plainant and receiving the Peoria club,
was. in effc-ct, a dissolution of one as
sociation, and the organization of an
other. This bill seks specific per
formance of a contract by injunction,
and under the showing made by the
bill, it is not such a contract as equity
may compel specific performance, and
for that reason the biil is demurrable.
It is not practicable for a court of
equity to enforce spe-cif.c performance
of the agreement alleged in the bill,
even if we interpret the constitution,
and the subsequent resolutions, as
contended for by the complainant. We
think no sufficient grounds for equit
able jurisdiction, is shown, that the
eu urre-r should be su-raineJ. and the
bill dismissed for want ;f equity."
