was not a case for investigation, he declined
to hold an Inquest, and sent a message to
the Health Officer to that effect. The Coro

no authority to give a certificate. Had the
body been recovered oufeide the city limits
and the case been the same be would
promptly have given the burial certificate,
and his reason for declining in this case was
that he had no authority In the premises.
As the Health Officer thinks he has no

Another year has pasted; ano’her year is
measured in the calendar of Old Fellow
ship. by brotherly love anil charity. A
year’s work ha* to be reviewed by you, while
the reccwd Is already made In tbe Book of
Time, whether as faithful servants our
duties have been discharged faithfully, or
If we have failed to comply with our obliga
tions. We meet to-day within sight of the
spot where the first Lodge of Odd Fellows
was Instituted in Georgia. We are where
Odd Fellowship had its fiest struggle for
existence In this State, thirty-nine years ago.
How many change* since! Yet the Lodges
instituted here In 1842 and 1843 still exist,
and are represented to-day In this session;
and we have with u the first Noble Grand
of the first Lodge Instituted and the first
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge formed
In Georria, Alvin N. MilDr, of Oglethorpe
Lodge, No. 1: and we sit with those who,
a ’he Old Guard of the order, the men of
1842 to 1-50, are still active in the discharge
of their duties as Odd Fellows. Surround
ed, then, as we are by these associations, it
should Inspire us to united efforts to per
petuate and increase the usefulness of this
noble brotherhood, and we should reverence
these veteran Odd Fellows who have so
nobly stood by the order from Its early
struggle In our’State to this tbe time of it*
By the laws of the order, you are made
the judges of the acts of your chief execu
tive officer, and it becomes my duty to ren
der to you an account of tny stewardship,
so that you may in your collective wisdom
and justice* either sanction what I have done
or correct that which may be amiss. That
you will do this with credit to yourselves
and a kind consideration for errors commit
ted, I fully believe, and will therefore sub
mit the following:
STATE OF THE ORDER.
While the past year has not been marked
by any great increase of membership, while
the charters of some Lodges not properly
worked have been demanded, while only
one Lodge has been Instituted, yet It Is a
source of gratification tbat a deep Interest
has been awakened In Lodges situated In
the cities, where most of our Lodges are
located, and the greatest Increase of mem
bershlp has been In those places where it
has been said we would lose groood on ac
count of the many mutual aid associations
that had been started with more attractive
feature* than we could offer. The Lodges
tbat have become defunct were located In
sparsely settled neighborhoods and their ex-
Istecce was never on a firm basis.
There is now an awakened Interest mani
fested by most of ’he Lodges making re
turns, to advance Odd Fellowship and place
It in that high and lofty position where It
belongs, and the cheering reports from the
District Deputy Grand Master* of there
vival, a* it were, now going on In ibelr
Lodges shows that In the near fu'ure our
beloved order will throw off, as It were, the
inaction ana lukewarmcesi that bsve had a
hold on It In the past, and make tv- Lodge
rooms once more craved and are* r for Its
members, and a place of pleasu: and en
joyment; and by ehowlng to the world In
their dally Intercourse with men and breth
ren that It Dan order based on principles
that are eternal, and fitted for the wants of
mankind, will thus command the attention
and awaken that Interest tbat will bring a
desire to unite with our great Brotherhood.
Looking from this standpoint, we will
soon see anew impetus given to the energy
of those who have already enlisted In the
grandest service that ever called men to
deed* of self denial aDd toleration, and
make the coming year one of great pros
perity for the order. For a full report of
membership and the Increase and decrease
during the year, I refer you to the Grand
While peace and prosperity have pre
vailed, yet grief and sorrow have afflicted
us, and we yet mourn tbe loss of many
members of ibis Grand Lodge who have
been called from their labors here, we trust,
to a happy home In God’s kingdom.
I attended the meeting call-d at Macon,
and there met both of our Worthy Grand
Representatives, Adolpa Brandt and John
B. Goodwin, our Worthy Grand Secretary,
John G. Deltz, our Deputy Grand Master,
and D. D. G. Masters or Representatives of
all Lodges save two called to meet at tbat
place. Our Grand Representatives carefully
explained and Imparted the new secret work
to the satisfaction of all present. It wi then
arranged that Representative John B. Good
win should give the work at the meeting
called at Atlanta tbe. next night; that Rep
resentative Adolph Brandt should give It at
Augusta at the same time, and that I should
give it at. the meeting the same night at Sa
vannah. The arrangement was faithfully
carried out. Although all the Lodges were
not represented at Atlanta, yet our worthy
Brother, Representative Goodwin, gave
It to several of the Lodges after
wards, either to their Representa
tives who called on him, or he visited
the places where the Lodges were located,
while others I directed afterwards to re
ceive the work from their neareat District
Deputy. 1 think all the Lodges working
received the new work as early as practi
cable. Before leaving Macon to atteDd the
meeting called at. that point, I drew my
warrant on the Grand Treasurer, John 8.
Tyson, for three hundred dollars, sufficient
to cover the expenses of the meetings
called to give tbe new work, which arnouut
I handed to the Grand Secretary at Macon
to pay warrants drawn on him for that pur
pose. The cost of all these meetings by the
plan and carried out amounted to
(191 20, and the balance is In tbe hands of
the Grand Secretary, and will be accounted
for In bis report.
The Grand Secretary having asked my
opinion of the price to be charged bv this
Grand Lodge for the new books, the Sover
eign Grand Lodge having set the price to
State grand bodies at $1 00 and $1 25, re
spectively, and knowing the great expense
that subordinates would have to Incur by
the new work, and believing that this
Grand Lodge should, on supplies, charge it*
subordinates only sufficient to pay charges
of expenses, etc., I instructed him to charge
an advance of twenty five cents on each
book, and it is for this Grand Lodge to say
if that shall be the price In the future.
If this new work Is properly rendered,
and every Lodge furnishes Itself with the
regalia and paraphernalia called for, it will
be an expense that but very.few Lodges In
tbe State can stand, and, If tbe letter of the
law is carried out, but few Lodges can com
ply, for more members are called for to
confer some of the degrees than we gener
ally find In our Lodge room, and, to make
the present work successful and Impressive,
nothing should be omitted, for If any
part is omitted, tbe beauty of tbe
whole Is destroyed. Our city Lodges
may be able to jyork tbe degrees
successfully, but our weak country Lodge*
will be deprived of tbat pleasure. While
tbe new work Is a great improvement over
the old, as far as an expression of our opin
ion la concerned, yet j fear that Its beauty
and usefulness will be marred by its Imper
fect rendering by Lodges outside of our
cities, as tbe expense of putting the new
work in operation bas been quite heavy on
tbe Lodges. 1 trust tbat no matter what
objections may be raised, tbat no alteration
will occur that will add any additional ex
pense, and that our Grand Representative
will be Instructed to vote against any change
that will cause additional expense to subor

REPORT OP GRAND REPRESENTATIVES BRANDT
Your representatives attended the fifty
sixth annual session of the Sovereign Grand
Lodge, L O. O. F., held in the city of To
ronto, Canada, commencing on Monday,
September 20th, 1880, at 9 o’clock a. m., and
closing on Monday, September 27th, at 5
o’clock p. m.
This communication was distinguished as
being the first one ever held on roll other
than that of the U nlted States, and for the
magnificent greeting of the brethren of
Canada, as well as for the important legis
lation of the session, embracing a revision .
of the secret, work and ritual.
Friday, September IT, b, preceding the
meeting on the 20th, had been set apart as
“Old Fellows’ Dy” by the Industrial Ex
hibition, then being held In Toronto, and tbe
procession of brethren which escorted the
Sivcrcign Grand Lodge through the princi
pal streets to the exhibition grounds was
conceded to be the largest ever witnessed
in that splendid and historic city. Arriving
at tbe exhibition grounds, the Sovereign
Lodge was welcomed in addresses by
His Worship, James Beatty, Jr., Mayor,
aud Mr. Withrow, President of the
Industrial Association, which were happily
responded to by Grand Sire Harmon. These
txercites were witnessed by about flfty
thousand people—a larger assemblage than
was attracted to the same place just one
year previous by the visit of the Marquis of
Lome and Princess Louise, loyal and de
voted as are the people of the Dominion to
Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, and her royal

AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION.
Of the various proposed amendments to
the Constitution of the Sovereign Grand
Lodge which came up for action but one
was adopted—that of Section 5 of Article 1,
in regard to the vote necessary to change
the secret work of the order, providing that
the unwritten work may now be altered or
amended by a four fifths vote of the mem
bers, and the written work by a two-thirds
On this subject majority and minority re
ports were submitted, and In action on same
the majority report was adopted, the Sover
eign Lodge thereby declining to legislate
further In that direction than at the preced
ing session, when the matter was remitted
to the discretion of juris
In tbe matter from this jurisdiction the
following action was taken, by the adoption
of the report of the committee:
To the Sovereign Grand Lodge of the Inde
vendent Order of Odd Fellows:
The Judiciary Committee, to whom was
referred the majority and minority reports
of a committee of the Grand Lodge of
Georgia, In the case of appeal of A. C.
Heggle, and others, against the decision of <
W. J. Hudson, D. D. G. M., beg lease to re
port that the facte in the case are * 'ollovrs:
A member of Cherokee Lodge No. 5, cf
Georgia, was taker, sick Jane 28th, 1879. On
the first day of the following month the
brother was Just three months in arrears for
weekly due*. The brother resided twenty
five miles from tie location of the Lode--.
He was sick six weeks, and on the
16th of July, and while sick, was so report
ed to the Lodge, and he pidd $2 00 does.
On September 30th, the Relief Committee
reported the brother entitled to six weeks’
benefit*, whereupon the Noble Grand
directed that an order be drawn on the
Treasurer for the amount. An appeal from
the action of the Noble Grand was taken to
the Lodge, and the decision of the Chair
was sustained, the vote being five tn the
affirmative, four In the negative, and three
not voting. From this decision of the
Lodge tn appeal was taken to W. J. Hadron,
D D. G. M., who sustained the appeal.
From the decision of D. D. Grand Master
Hadron an appeal was taken to the Grand
Master, who sustained tbe decision of tbe
D. D. Grand Master. An appeal was then
taken from the decision of the Grand
Master to tbe Grand Lodge, and
said appeal was referred to the
Committee on Grievance and Appeals,
who submitted a nwjority ard minority re
port upon the subject. The majority of the
committee reported the following resolu
tion: ''Rt*J.ved, That the decision of the M.
W. Grand Master be not sustained ” Tbe
minority of tbe committee reported the fol
lowing reaoln'ion: "Rctdli'ed. That the de
cision of the M W. Grand Master affirming
the derision of W. J. Hudson, D. D. G. M. t
be sustained.” After debate on the matter,
the report of the majori’y was adopted. It
will be noticed from the foregoing state
ment of facte, that the brother was benefi
cial when he was taken sick, but became
three months in arrears for dues before tbe
expiration of one w<>ek from tbat time. The
Grand Lodge of Georgia, in passing upon
the cate, decided that a brother who Is ben
eficial when taken sick Is entitled to bene
fit* during such sickness, and that decision
is consistent with section 182, White’s Di
gest. Therefore the action of the Grand
Lodge should be sustained.
We therefore submit the following resolu
Budlvtd, That the action of the Grand
Lodge of Georgia upon the foregoing sub
ject was legal, and Is hereby sustained.
Several Grand Jurisdictions having taken
action favoring the conducting of Lodge
work in the Third, or Scarlet Degree, in
stead of the Initiatory, tbe matter will come
before tbe Sovereign Lodge at next sesalon,
and as tbe question is one of vital im
portance to the order, If the Grand Lodge
of Georgia bas a preference in regard to it,
we would suggest an expression of it by
appropriate action for the guidance of your
THE CLOSE OF THE 3EBSIOS.
At quarter past eight o’clock last
night the Grand Lodge assembled at the
hall, to close up the business of the session
and discuss various matters and pas* tbe
usual resolutions of thanks, etc.
The members of the subordinate Lodges
of tbe cl'.v bad meanwhile assembled in
Pythian Hall, on tbe same floor, which bad
been kindly placed at tbelr disposal, and
when the announcement wa* received at
half past nine that the Grand Lodge
had finished it* business, and
were about to close, a procession was
formed to escort them to the Masonic Tem
ple, where a grand
In their honor had been provided, under
the direction of Mr. John Bresnan, the In
defatigable manager of the Marshall House.
As tbe brethren filed out of the hall the
colacnn was formed on Broughton street
two abreast, and at once proceeded up Bull
to Liberty to the Masonic Temple. On
reaching the entrance to the Temple
the proceision was halted, and tbe
order given to open ranks and face about.
Tbe officers and members of the Grand
Lodge then passed through, the brethren
uncovering, and, entering the Temple,
marched boldly Into the main hall, where
five tables, stretched the entire
length of the floor, loaded
down with substantiate, and very hand
somely decorated, greeted tbelr vislou.
When the vaat company, numbering over
three hundred and fifty, were arranged
around the tables, the Grand Master
called attention, and able-sing
was Invoked by the Grand Chaplain. Tbe
brethren were then Invited, without fur
ther ceremony, to be seated, and to enter
upon tbe Important work of testing the
merits of the bountiful fea*t.
Man ager Bresnan was present and bad bis
entire corps of excellent and well trained
waiters from the Marshall House on the
floor, and superintended arrangements to
tbe entire satisfaction of all, the commit
tees being relieved of all duty except
general supervision. It Is no easy task to
attend to nearly four hundred people, but
so well planned were the arrangements that
there was no delay, and everybody was
promptly served. The banquet was a credit
to tbe host*, and attested tbe skill of Mr.
Bresnan in getting up a mammoth feast at
a ssar-on when the m*rVet 1* barren of many
luxuries and delicacies.
Tne reunion was in brief a very delight
ful success, there being no set speeches,
and an utter absence of formality. It
was truly a fraternal gathering, and we
have no doubt those In whose honor
It was given will long remember tbe occa
sion with pleasure. There was abundance
of ice-cold lemonade and delicious coffee,
and the banquet was closed with a
pleasant smoke. There were calls
upon certain brethren for speeches,
but the inclination did not seem to
run In tbe way of response, and
there wa* no airing of eloquence and ora
tory, which to many was an agreeable omis
sion, as social converse suited them better.
About midDight the banquet hall was de
serted and the visitors returned to their
EXCURSION TO TYBEE.
This afternoon the Grand Lodge aod
visiting brethren will be given an excur
sion to Tybee, for which the steamers H. B.
Plant and David Cla;k are chartered, and
two bands of music have been engaged.
The admirable manner in which the com
mittee acquitted themselves last night jus
tifies the. assertion that this excursion will
be a gratifying success.

There has been the largest travel to points
on the Air Line this summer than ever was
known before, and this has made every one
more hopeful. Notwithstanding the
fact of nearly all tbe resorts being
crowded, there has been a very large
number visiting White Sulphur, New Hol
land and Gainesville, Wbite Sulphur bav
ing turned away a great many on account
of having no accommodation, as they are
full to overflowing. They are sleeping, a
dozen or more, in a church near by. They
certainly ought to be good guests. Among
the Savannahians at White Bulphur are:
Dr. W. 8. Lawton and family, Thomas F.
Stubbs, J. 8. Woods, Jr., Samuel A. Woods,
Marlon Erwin, T. N. Theus and wife, Mr.

lamlly, Mrs. Preston Dixon, Misses Aggie
*id Irene Dixon, Mrs. Dr. B. F. Ulmer and
ftmilv, and several others.
Quite a happy event occurred this morn
irg at 9 o’clock, at Gainesville. It was the
nmrrlage of Mr. Wm. Nelli, of Savannah,
tc Miss Mattie, youngest daughter of Mr.
aid Mrs. John Trammell, of the Piedmont
Hotel. The ceremony was performed by
hev. Marshall H. Lane in the presence of
George W. Jones and wife, Mrs. Howard,
Mrs. Neill and a brother of the bridegroom
and a number of tbe guests of the hotel.
7he happy pair left on the ten o’clock train

thence to Saratoga and the Eastern cities.

Aajruat 10. —lhar Xm*: I bave Joat learned
that my hastily written letter of last Sunday
care effense to some of the Tybee Islanders.
Sow nothin* was further from my inten
tion. Mr. Monnerlyn, the clever Superin
tendent of the Tybee Railway, is doing the
best that can be done—in fact, the road is
better managed than it ever has been. The
cars are in good order and are run regularly.
] I only said the road did not make ex
i pen sea last month, or something to that
] effect. This information I got from a good
j source I thought it reliable, and I think
jso si ill. The agent of the Plant,
' 1 am informed, also thinks I
j rtfleeted on bis “persistency.” in
| saying that a “persistent effort might have
I secured excursion rates over the Central.”
It appears, however, that Col.,\JTadley re
j fused positively to grant any concession, as
I he wanted to show Milt. Smith, Sam. Barnett
; and Wallace Campbell, the “Boss” railroad
| superintendents of the Empire State, that
if they made rates for his road the people
i would get the full benefit of them. Hence
tnis machine, known as the Railroad Com
mission, Intended originally to satisfy the
low tariff men of the town of Ameri
cas, affected the excursion business to
Tybee. And it is further alleged
that last vear the Tybee hostelries
could not accommodate the immense crowd
that rushed to the surf beaten shore, and
many went back dissatisfied. This allega
tion may have been true in 1880, but you
can take my word for it that a very large
excursion of “Inlanders" can now be accom
modated by the “Islanders."
This reminds me (that Is the subject, the
Central Railroad, reminds me; that I saw a
paragraph In the Nkws the other day copied
from one of the one hundred and forty nine
weeklies from which you quote, which is
unusually inaccurate even for a Georgia
paragraphs. This item stated that
Colonel Wadley was bora In Scot
land. This Is not so. He
is a New Englander, and his first job in
Georgia was that of doing the blacksmlth
ing work at Fort Pulaski, back In the ’3o’s.
It is stated that the engineer In charge was
astonished one morning when he visited the
work to find that the voung mechanic had
pulled down the little smitbey, and was
putting up one suitable to the work iu band.
Col. Wadley, whfle employed at the Fort,
married Miss Everingham, the minister
coming down from Savannah in a row boat
to perform the ceremony. The bride of
nearly fifty years isastately matron of to-day,
beloved by all who know her. The railroad
magnate is not a Scotchman, but the mis
take of the paragrapher was a natural one.
Colonel Wadley is as honest and self willed
as any native of “the land of cakes."
I'esterday “Bt. John’s Guild,” an asso
ciation of young gentlemen, who play bil
liards (pioush; and Indulge In other inno
cent amusements, had an excursion. It was
a nice affair and eDjoyed by everybody.
The society, while ostensibly attached
to Bt. John’s Episcopal Church, ad
mits young men of any Christian
denomination to membership. The
religious toleration of this age and country
was exemplified by the presence of people
of other religious creeds in the excursion.
