To licgin with, it i a matter of
record that Hon. J. W. White oenly
opposed the removal of the head
oflice of the M.xl.Tn Woodmen of
America at the meeting of the Head
Camp in Springfield in 1S1:. and at
the meeting in Onialia in 18'.)2. He
did not oppose the removal liocause
the oflice wa located in Ihe county
of which he was a resident, but took
higher grounds. He advocated that
the oflice remain where it is in the
interest of the order. At Omaha he

Mr. W lute, while endeavoring to ol
taiu legislation favorable for the or

regarding the in iiui.-tioii that were
kept secret from the other member

The record of the proceedings of
the meeting of hoard of directors
doe not show that any action wa
taken by the board of directors in
regard to appointing Mr. While to
get the injunction dissolved or in
structing him to do so. The fact
aliout the matter i that after the ac
tion of the Head camp at Omaha.
Mr. White and the other membetsof
the boaid of directors were not only
willing, but anxious to carry out the
will of the order a expressed at that
meeting. Their personal preference
w a set aside. Thev could do noth
ing else but attempt to carry out the
w ill of t lie order. Arrangements for
the removal of the head oflice were
made, and the oflice would have been
removed last Uecenitier. had not an
injunction been obtained by some of
the citizen of Fulton. The board of
director are all lawyers, and thev
oon reached the conclusion that Ihe
injunction could not Ik dissolved
and the matter ha been left to drift
along without anv action beingtaken

The fact are that all the members
of the iMiard of directors, includin
Mr. White, have expressed them
selves favorable to the removal of the
ouice in accordance with the ex
pressed wishes of the order, and no
matter what may have been Mr
White's iersonal preferences, mo.
tives, or intentions, he never failed
to declare hi entire purpose to car
ry out the will and wish of the order
with reference to removal until hi
final confession that he made the
promise during the legislative ses
sion that he had promised not to move
in the matter at the time other law s
were secured advantageous to the
There is nothing to fear iu the
Fulton injunction, which is merely
the outcropping of a desire to retain
the offices, whether the order so de
crees or not. The order was not con
stituted merely in the interests of
the city of Fulton, but for the bene
fit of the great mass of Woodmen
throughout pit country, w ho, 80,00
strong, havte through their chosen
representatives decided that the of
lice be removed to Kock Island.
The head officers of t he order should
see that the will of those whom they
represent is carried out. If any bar
riers stand in the way, they s'hould
at leas, attempt to remove them, and
Mr. White, who was delegated to
make this move, and accepted the
trust in good faith, should do his
duty, and do it to the best of his
ability without regard to personal
bias or prejudice, if he would act the
part of a man.
