Thrf Reasons for Opposing Re-
THE POSITION OF THE FULT05HTES.
Th, Ground for tke Petition for T.mpor.y
f li Junction Provisions of the Fundamen-
tall-awa-Wholeaale Charges by the Pe-
The Pullon Jourcal gives the full text
of - Lu pttiiion for a Umporarj injunction
to restrain the Modern Woodmen from
reemvictj the hear'quartersof theordir
to Rock Island, or away from Pulton,
and the principal points of the psper
will be of interest to the many members
of the order.
It seems that the principal point de
pended on by the nrctors is thRt. the
bend cttmp metiri Ht ().u.ha did not
tal e the matter in hand rightly, and did
not m&ke the change as prescribed un
der the fundamental laws of the order.
The Fundamental Law.
The fundaments laws provide that
"The principal r.ffi-e shall be at the
ofl'.ce of the head clerk at Fulton. LIU
ncis;"also that -These laws m ly be
aniended at any special or rctular ses
s'mn of the head-camp by a two-thirds
vcteof the authorized delegates pres
et t." The petitioners further asaprr
that no change was made at Omaha in
BRid fundamental laws touching the re-
ujuvai ui inn principal omce, 10 any
way, shape or form. What the peti
ti oners call "the alleged late session of
the head camp" at Omaha had attempted
to change the headquarters, not according
to the law quoted above, but by simply a
resolution, and that not adopted by a
two-thirds vote of the authorized dele
gates present, including officials and
committeemen who were not delegates to
that session, it is said that there were
present In all at this Omaha meeting 103
members, and therefore the fundamental
laws could be amended by an affirmative
vote of not less than C9, while in fact
there was cast in favor of the resolution
the votes cf 56 persons in all, including
the votes of attendants cot delegates to
lhat session of the head camp.
The Fultonites make the further claim
.uai ue corporation naving necn or
ganized solely under the laws of the state
of Illinois, and being a creature of the
state has no power, richt or authority to
hold or conduct i.s htad camp at
any point outs:d: of the state of Illinois,
sonsi queni.y tne umnna meeting was
They further charge thit no notice
having been given that the question of
changing the headquarters would be
voted on at OhhIih, the i ffi :ers of the
ordr designedly and intentionally offered
a resolution simply providing for 6uh
removal, intending then aud there to de
tent the wishes of the patrons of said
order and remove said office from the said
Fulton, Illinois, to said Rock Itdand, Illi
nois, without meeting the requirements
of the statute governing such associations
in relation to the removal of their prin
other Charges ,
The petitioners rlso charge Head Clerk
Elawes as having be en "very zealous and
active in his efforts to secure the re
moval" to Rock Islatd; "that your peti
tioners believe and so charge the truth
to be, that he can, with such help as he
can easily procure, remove the said prin
cipal office fr:m said Fulton, Illinois, at
a very early moment, unless restrained by
thi honorable court from so doing; that
said bead clerk has interests in said Rock
Island of a financial character, and for
purely selfish purposes is anxious for
such removal, and your petitioners fear,
and so state the truth to be, that if they
should give him notice of this, their il
teiided application to enjoin him from
such removal, he would perfect arrange
ments to accomplish the removal of such
principal office as herein before charged
before any preliminary hearing could be
had upon this application for injunction.
And the rights of your petitioners would
be unduly prejudiced in case they be re
quired to give notice of their application
for icjunction because of the facts and
allegations stated above."
Then the directors are charged to he in
sympathy with the head clerk.
Unless the ir junction is in the mean
time withdrawn a motion will probably
be mcde in the near future to dissolve it
as not being sustained by the allegations.

ances the last month in the year is a

have been in consecutive winters. In
1876 the average was 15 degrees above

for any one dny was on the 24th, 13S9,
well remembered as a year when winter
was very slow in eettiog in its work.
On that day the mercury rose to 65

All Kindt of Pavement .
It will be admitted by the most casual
observer that the streets of Chicago tie,
taken as as whole, in a most deplorable
condition as to paving. There is all
kinds, woods, asphalt, grintte, etc. The
question is now being agitated and bids
have been called for. for paving a street
with brick as a sample of what can be
accomplished by the proper use of the
product of the kiln.
Ite question of kind, quality, dura
bility, Bervice and adaptability of pave
ments is an old one. It has been dis
cussed and re-dlseussed with no appar
ent satisfaction. The older and larger
the city, more serious and perplexing
does the question become. Each kind
or system has its advocates and to each
kind or system can reasonable objections

more expensive in the long run aud rroP'
erty owners are becoming weary of the
frequent assessments necessary to keep a
block pavement in first-class serviceable

unhealthy condition. So ap
parent is this that oc
cupan'S of good residence sireets object
to mock pavement for this reason. In
nearly all the large cities of I lin.Ms, with
the notable exception of Chicago, this
class of pavement is being discarded and
vitrified brick is taking its place. The
manufacture of this material is a com
paratively new industry but is rapidly
becoming an important factor in the suc
cessful answering of the question of
cheap, noiseless, healthful and durable
pavement. The advantages claimed for
it are tbat it is as non-absorbent as
granite or asphalt, that horses do not.

use of pitch or tar, and hence can be
easily taken up and that while it can be
