it did not open up any avenue for Mc
Kinnie, who by the way, was not pres
ent, to get in. The order is down on Mc .
Einnie for getting out the injunction, and
it is down on Root for permitting the
delegates to incur the expense and loss of
time of going to Des Moines when he
knew that tbe special meeting of tbe
head camp could not be held.
When the hour of meeting arrived
Head Consul J. C. Root announced that
it had been thought best, in view of tbe
issuance of an injunction by the Chicago
courts, not to sound tbe gavel to call the
meeting to order as a head camp. He
expressed the hope that the delegates
present would do nothing to tbe injury of
the order, but on tbe other hand would
take such action as would reflect credit
on them, whether the injunction held
good or was withdrawn. Attorney Ire
tana, oi Illinois, expressed tbe same
views, and suggested that the meeting
be resolved into a conference for the good
and welfare of the order. The idea was
adopted, and a Kansas delegate proposed
the name of E. S. Bertram, of Council
Grove, Kan., for chairman. He was se
lected, and adjournment taken till after
noon, when an exceedingly lively session
Tbe Illinois delegates began the session
by selecting Judge Cavan, ot El Paso,
as their leader, and he made a speech de
nouncing the call for tbe special session
as illegal ana a wnouy unwarranted pro
ceeding, besides bringing unnecessary ex
pense. ue sata that the Illinois men
were opposea to holding a heart camp
outside of the state. Tbe session now
being held was not legally a head camp
and no Woodman who was loyal to the
order could accept any action of the ses
sion as official. The speaker said that
tbe injunction did not restrain members
from paying assessments . nor did it
necessitate tbe expulsion ot members who
did not pay. All it did was to restrain
the removal of the records from Spring
field, A heated discussion followed .
