CHAIItMAN AOKEW'S REPLY.
On beba' ( of tbe convention, as its
temporary officer, and for each individ
ual member, and for the society as an
organization, Mr. Agnew returned
thanks for Ibe mayor's greetings and
courtesies. Knowing the reputation of
Rock Islatd, ibe Woodmen expected
open-hearted greetings, and in this they
were not disappointed . Mr. Agnew also
returned sincere thanks ior the Lonor
conferred upon him bj the convention
by making him its temporary presiding
officer, lit always fell that in meeting a
Woodmen be met an honest man. who
was making k me deprivation for loved
ones; and wben be realized that be had
been railed to preside over a convention
of such men who were meeting
together to protect , and elevate
the order from impending danger.
he would be something less than
human if hedid not appreciate Ihecompli-
ment. He then went into a brief review
of the recent alleged frauds that had been
discovered in the office of tbe head consul
of tbe ord r, in tbe way of supcifluout
and illegal printing bills, the Burnham
death claim fraud, etc. Not only bad tbe
public press of Illinois exposed these
frauds, he said, but the head consul had
acknowledged tbcm.yet neither he nor the
executive officers of the older as a whole
bad made any effort to ferret them out.
And furthermore the state auditor and
attorney general of tbe prairie state of
Illinois ha 3 seen reason far grave charges
and proceedings looking to the running
down of the frauds. He also tpoke of the
attempts by the head officers to delay
proseculicns in Illinois of these
cases, and failing in this had called a
meeting of tbe head camp of tbe order
not only in this state, but in Iowa. The
question is are we Woodmen going to
stand loyi.lly and faithfully by the order
of Modern Woodmen. This is your con
vention; it is not a meeting of the Mod
ern Woodmen camps of Illinois, but of
all Woodmen everywhere in the order.

A motion was made that the chairman
appoint a committee of three on perma
nent organization,' and three on resolu
tions, the latter to be composed as far as
practicable of representatives of Ibe dif
ferent jurisdictions. ": ,
An ami ndment prevailed that tbe tem
porary organisation be made permanent,
and the litter part was changed to provide
for three representatives from Illinois
and one from each of the other states
represented Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin
and Nebraska and so carried.
The cl air named the following as com
posing said committee; .
Illinoiii Neighbors R. O. Mammon, of
Bloomin;ton; T.J. Sparks, ofBnshnell;
G. W. Price, of Atkinson, and J. L.Ha&s,

Nebraska F. B. Baker.
Tbe cbair added Neighbor Man

Neighbor Perry, of Davenport, ob
jected to Illinois having four delegates
to only one from the other states.
An Illinois neighbor replied that on the
basis of representation, Illinois having
ninety-nine present to one from the
other states was entitled to three to one.
Neighbor Mammon withdrew from the
committee on resolutions, and the con
vention approved of the same.
Tbe chair asked the unanimous consent
to add neighbor W. A. Norcott, of Green-,
ville, to the committee. Objection was
heard and a motion was made that the
committee be increased by one and that
neighbor Norcott be added. -An ani
mated debate followed after which the
cbair declared the motion out of order.
The committee on credentials com'
posed of 8. Mattison, 8. Murdoch and J
M. Blaisdell, reported 175 delegates pies

A formal suggestion that Dr. McKin-
ie address the convention was the incen
tive for the body to resolve itself into a
school of oratory, which consumed the
time until the noon hour, there being a
vigorous protest on one side of the house
and from the Iowa representatives in par
ticular, to McKinnie being beard, which
was met with overwhelming strength on
the other side that the delegates were
present to bear and to learn all they
could from McKi nnie. Root or any ore
else, and that if McKinnie could prove
what he bad said be would be hailed as
tbe savior of the order, one neighbor in
a burst of eloquence declaring, "if Dr.
McKinnie can satisfy us that what
be has said is true, we will Bay
to him, 'well done, good and faith
ful servant. Thou hast been faithful un
to little things; we will make you ruler
over many things. In tbe further ex
change of thoughts, there was a good
deal said complimentary to McKinoie.and
considerable that was not so complimen
tary to Root, and finally after further
earnest debate a motion prevailed that
the secretary telegraph Head Consul
Root that tbe convention would be
pleased to havehim address it at 9 o'clock
this evening. The convention then ad
journed for the noon hour with tbe un
derstanding thsjt Dr. McKinnie was to
appear before it at the reconvening at
Tbe convention did not get down to
business until 2 p. m , when on motion a

dations as follows: N. G. Truby, Illi

sell, of Wisconsin; Neighbor Cosher,
Michigan; J. C. Sloau. Nebraska.
M KINNIE SrKAKS.
Dr. McKinnie then took the stage
under the resolution of this morning and
made a lengthy address, tracing bis con
nectlon with the order, the manner in
which he had discharged his duties, faith
fully and acceptably as he believed. - He
spoke of the first discovery of fraud upon
tbe order by Rev. B. F. Tollman, of
Abingdon, 111. In tbe investigation that
followed one of the most outrageous
crimes ever planned by mortal man was
unearthed.' He admired the footpad and
the highwayman and the burglar to
any man who will by means of
fictitious death claims assess men who
trust him throughout tbe land and put
tbe money in his own pocket. He read
a letter from the attorney general of the
state of Illinois, which he said was the
platform on which he stood and on which
every other Woodman ought to stand.
It stated that the only thing the state
could do was to let the proceedings go on
and let the public and the members of the
society judge of the propriety of the
same by the results. Dr. McKinnie then
talked at length on the second meeting of
the bead camp called at Des Moines next
month of tbe recently organized sovereign
camp of the world, which he regarded as
a scheme to unite the head camp with the
sovereign camp and abandon tbe charter.
He claimed that Root proposed to rope
the Woodmen into the sovereign camp by
jugglery, and if that failed, to attempt to
accomplish it by threat of a copyright re
cently secured by Root on the copyright
of the ritual of the order, which would
prove a failure, as Root had ' not
secured a copyright within the time spec
ifled by the law. He derided tbe
ideas of Root or of McKinnie factions.
There were no such factions. It was
simply right against wrong; the state, the
law, and the courts of Illinois against
criminals. He hoped tbe Woodmen
would let the facta be developed by the
attorney general of tbe state. It was
not the duty now for the Woodmen to
investigate. The matter was in the
hands of the state. - Tbe only thing for
the Woodmtn to do now. (Here a dele
gate from camp 644, stated that he bad
heard Root express his determination to
abandon the charter of llrnois, and seek
one under the laws of Iowa.) There was
nothing to worry about as to insurance.
The state of Illinois will look out for that.
If four hundred members should die in a
day the state of Illinois will see that the
beneficiaries are paid, as there are 40,000
members of tbe order good for it,
and the attorney general would
see that they are assessed, and
the obligations of the order met. Bnt
he did not believe tbe state of Iowa
guaranteed such protection to the society.
He assailed tbe call for the special bead
camp meeting as illegal, as it was not
backed as he claimed, by the requisite
number of camps of the order. He en
tered into detail of the charged illegal
assessments, which showed either lackjof
method in the present system of book
keeping in the head camp or else gross
and outrageous criminalities and unwar
ranted use of funds, and the doctoring of
the official records to cover up these de
falcations. He cited tbe use of N. W
Love, of Milan, as dead and the insurance
paid in 1800, whereas it was paid in 1889.
The present thing to consider, he held.
was self preservation. There must be
wise measures and actions taken here tos
day under tbe shadow of the law, and it
must be taken with legal advice. He
favored a rt solution asking the auditor of
Illinois to take charge of the books of the
order at Fulton and that be make an in
vesication as to all assessments made
and collected this year.
