There are forty-two lodges In this
lurlsdlccn, and all, with one excep

Its representatives did not appear. But
from all other parts of tho Btato mem
Report o from district, deputies show
an Incicaso in membership all over
Utah. Old lodges and now lodges
have heen taking ln now members,
and the fraternity which now has tho
largest membership In America, and
Is rapidly extending to foreign renin
'J tries, seems to bo faring as well here
as anywhere. Reports of relief ex
j tended were very gratifying, but as
this brotherhood believes In not let
ting tho right hand know what tho
I left hand doeth in the way of asslst-
ance to tho needy, for the burying of
r the dead, tho caring for tho sick,
and tho education of tho orphan, no
figures are at hand.
Sufficient to say all members of the
Grand Lodge were highly pleased at
Not the least important of the re
ports made were those of tho repre
sentatives from this jurisdiction to
tho Sovereign Grand Lodge. The or
der Is prospering all over the world
as It never has before prospered and
tho future looks bright Indeed. Dur
ing the year 1903, tho year upon which
tho reports were based, there was ex-
Ipended In tho United States for tho
relief of tho distressed ?4,32C,509.19.
Tho records show that during the
years from 1830 to 1893, both Inclu
sive, tho Odd Fellows of this country
have expended for relief tho enormous
sum of ?100,795,034.61. If is believed
that no other fraternal order In exist
ence has such a record.
There are C7 grand lodges In this
country and grand lodges in each of
the following foreign countries: Ger
many, Denmark, Australia, Nether
lands. Sweden and Switzerland. Tho
lodgo members number 1,151,421. Tho
encampment members total up 1G7,
849. Itehekah members 447,587.
Speaking of relief: During tho
year 1903 the order attended and con
ducted tho funerals of 11,042 mem
hers; It relieved 113,379 brothers, nntl
took care of 5,908 families of widows.
It was a great year for tho fraternity,
and no wonder It Is growing.
