DETROIT. Mich., Aug. 22. — Intimat
ing that the society Is guilty of breach
of confidence, of obtaining money by
false \u25a0 pretenses and In pursuing a
dishonest policy, delegates to the con
vention of the Associated Fraternities
of America^ fought through an intense
discussion on the matter of insurance
rates in their afternOon. session. Judge
Pfost of Kansas furnished' the sensa
tion of the raeetingjj declaring: .
"There*ls not a' society in the United
•States that can carry out Its insurance
contracts in full."
The substance of his short speech
was that, while societies are constantly
Increasing their liabilities, they are not
increasing their assets. Other speak
ers condemned insurance procedure of
their respective societies as dishonest,
dishonorable and disgraceful.
The convention was split Into two
factions, led by ex-President George F.
McKay of Cleveland, who declared for
the presentation of a minimum rate
bill to the Legislatures, and Thomas B.
Hanley of Tipton, la., who opposed such
action. The general spirit of the con
vention - was that the amalgamation

The decision of the Relief Corpora
tion to make all persons who are able
to work self-supporting was communi
cated to Chief of Police Dlnan yesterd
ay in a letter from Major J. A. Gaston,
superintendent of relief. He asked the
co-operation of the police in weeding
out the worthless refugees. Special
mention was made of many persons
who are residing in the various camps
for the purpose of ' making a question
able livelihood. ' \u25a0 \u25a0
Those that are Bick will be removed
to the various city hospitals. Special
arrangements have been made for the
care of those who are infirm from old
age. ThoBe^ refugees, however, who
have been drawing rations gratuitously
and sleeping in the various parks and
driveways will be compelled to supply
their own food after next Sunday. The
reason given by the .Relief Corporation,
of which Rudolph Spreckels is chair
man, is that four months have elapsed
since the fire and that the people have
had ample time to become self-sup
porting, especially in the matter of
supplying their own food.
The following orders were issued by
By authority of Rudolph Spreck

houses, the following is published for

tion are hereby forbidden to make any
further Issues of milk, eggrs. meat or
other raw food after Saturday, August
25, 1906, except' as hereinafter pro
3. No worthy person shall be allowed
to go hungry. All worthy persons
needing food for 'the present and ap
plying in person shall obtain meal iick
ets from the camp commander at the
nearest permanent camp where kitch
ens are maintained.- Those who on ac
count, of age or infirmity cannot go -to
the camp kitchen shall .be-' furnished
transportation - for themselves , and
bedding to the camp, at, the Speedway
(or to one of the. other camps," if that is
full), by applying to'H. S. Johnson,
quartermaster, permanent camp, cor
ner of Gough and Geary/streets. .All
agents of the -relief association are
hereby directed to make sure that aged
and .infirm ..persons, who "might other
wise suffer from this order, are.no

for transportation are sent at once to
this office. ' " '
4. 'All seriously sick or paralyzed pa
tients shall 'be sent -to -one of the city
hospitals. For those only- slightly 111

5. Camp commanders are the only
ones to- whom kitchen tickets shall be
Issued,. and they shall carefully investi
gate each case, and only issue tickets
to worthy persons to prevent suffering-.
The campr kitchens are only retained
on account of the necessity for them.

SPEEDWAY CAMP. HAS ILL SAME.
Refugee* Wrongly Consider It "Poor
house" and May Away. f
That word of 111 omen, "poorhouse,"
has been settled by the refugee imag
ination on the camp at the speedway In
the park, and as a consequence there
have been few. even among those In
great need, who have yet applied to
the -Relief Corporation for removal
from other camps to the- one beyond
Strawberry Hill.. In tin oruer issued by
Chairman Rudolph Spreckels of the de
ifertment of camps and warehouses the
distribution of raw food at camps other
than the speedway will be discontinued
Saturday,, and all the aged and Infirm
who have no means of supporting
themselves * were instructed to apply
for transportation' to the park camp,
which, by the same token, had been
di'fignated the "camp for the aged and
lii firm." !
But the' words "aged and infirm"
caught In the pride of the refugees.
They .considered it an euphemism for
"poorhouse". and would have none of it.
Many of the aged who will be housed*
at-the speedway are probably delaying
their move as long as possible, but it is
expected that by. Saturday Major Gas
ton. \u25a0who Is In- charge of the permanent
camps, will have. plenty of employment
for his transportation department.

UNTIL. September 1 and a fresh
appropriation corrfe many of the
sewing centers which have been
conducted under the ; dispensa
tlon of the rehabilitation department of
the Relief Corporation will have to be
discontinued. The ' appropriation for.
August was $2000, and the goods pur
chased under that fund are rapidly be
ing' made; into garments, so- rapidly
that in many.centers the supplies have
been exhausted. Father Crowiey, who
Is superintendent of the industrial de
partment of the rehabilitation commit
tee, stated yesterday, that he will ask
for an appropriation of $5000 for. Sep
tember and that he expects that it will
be allotted the department 'by the ex
ecutive committee. Miss Lucule Eaves
of the Red Cross, who directs the
work, asked for $5000 for August, but
her estlmiUe was cut. down. In Jeffer
son square the sewing has been discon
tinued. In the Mission there is still
plenty of material on hand.
Father Crowiey saw many varieties
of good In tho sewing centers. They
are mentally, morally and materially
beneficial to the refugees, said the
priest yesterday, and he gave cate
gorically his reasons. "First and fore
most." he said, " the sewing circles
keep women busy and therefore out of
mischief; keep them \away from: gos
siping." Conventionally the sewing
circle has a name for being the center
of small talk, but Father Crowiey looks
on It as a beneficlent institution and
his view ; is not apt to be gainsaid by
the executive committee. .'',

\u25a0;. Telllnc, Therefore Are Illegal.
'SEATTLE, Aug. 22. — Rev. Mrs. Rice,

The decision is one of great impor
tance to the spiritualists of Seattle, as

"The boat's crew must have perished
before the storm subsided. The boat
