which the raid was made by the police
The city council at first voted to take
away Fryes saloon license but after
council was ordered to show cause before
the district court the members rescinded
their action and promised Frye a hearing

the address of Mr Bosh on Woodcraft
Rounds of applause followed his an
nouncement that tae Pacific jurisdiction
had amassed three millions of dollars in
the reserve and surplus funds and that
every cent of it was invested in munici
pal bonds in cities of not less than 10000
and of an assessed valuation of not leas
than a million
Strength in Numbers
Mr Boak reported that for every five
persons In the nine states of the Pacific
jurisdiction there was one member of
the Woodmen of the World In fact the
record be said is a little better than
that for to every thousand of popula
tion there are 210 members He stated
that the Woodmen of the World is the
richest fraternal benefit society in the
world
Though the organization is not more
than nineteen years old he Mid three
millions had been paid to widows and

the order expected to lose 10000 members
because of an increase in the assessment
there were only lAtt memhrs Who droppd
out but that with the return of better
times the new members had been In
creased so oUi to offset the losses
The meeting lasted until midnight and
Armory hall was the scene of a big Jolli

AGED SPINSTER HElD
fOR MURDER Of NIECE
Many Suspicious Features in Connec
tion With Death of Mrs Ocey
W N Snead
New York Dec Virginia Wardlaw
a grayhaired spinster was arraigned at
East Orange N J today charged with
the murder of her young niece Mrs Ocey
W N Snead whose body was found in
a bathtub in a deserted house in East
Orange Monday
Death according to the coroner was
due to drowning in less than a foot of
water In view of many features of the
casethe young womans detention in de
serted houses while having a 20000 in
surance policy on her life the fact that
she owned property in Brooklyn worth
18000 and her apparent helplessness for
months Miss Wardlaw was held without
ball Two other women said to have
been associated with the victim are un
der surveillance
The police theory is that Mrs Snead
had been in a helpless condition for
months unable to direct her own affaire
and was at the mercy of whoever acted
as her guardian
A will has been discovered said to have
been signed by the victim which gives
50 to an infant son and bequeaths the
rest of the estate to Mrs Sneads grand
mother Martha Eliza Wardlaw
The son was born last August but was
taken from its mother and presumably
placed in an institution
