Probably the entire future of this! onlpr. ithe largest, most successful 1 and most prominent among an coi- ored secret societies in the. world, was involved in the choice of the . mi Grand Fountain of its president. Re cent troubles have brought the or- ganization to a cricitical stage, due mostly, it is believed, to ignorance of business methods and partly,' per haps, to the machinations of more intelligent Negroes, wno found in the members of their race easy dupes to their plans. Holds Highest Place. Remarkable indeed is the history of the True Reformers, which for nearly thirty years has held first place In the respect and admiration of the colored population of America. Its home office and central building are locat?d in Richmond on Second street, near Leigh, where yesterday's sessions were held. The body, which is composed of delegates, met on Tuesdav, and will be in session the remainder of the week. t Bank in the Game. The Savings Bank of the Grand United Order of True Reformers, wTiich is operated as a corolllry of the the order, was chartered in 1888 Stock was subsciibed to by individ ual .members of the order. The char ter of the bank provides that its borrd of directors shll be the bosrd of directors of the True Reformers. Stock was Fold on the condition that at the death of the stockholder, it should revert to the hank,-vand no ! provision is made for its reissuance. As to the unpaid claims asalnst the order, which caused the Bureau of Insurance to sharpen its stick and to besin its work of preemptcrv reform te foMowfng quotation is - from the Hobscn report, made to Commission er Button: "Within the last eighteen months or two years the association has not raid its claims promptly, not due to the lack of funds, for the bank 1ms a balance to the credit of the Orond Fountain amounting to $234,- "738.89, but to the fact th it the bmk was not in portion to meet the checks when Presorted. The depos its of the Grand Founta'n constitute about fif) per oent. of all deposits of the bank. The casMer of the bank is the treasurer of the Grand Foun tain. Checks have been properly drawn when d"e and turnod over to thp cashier of the bank. The cashier had in his .possession (it the t'me of this examination over $30,000 in checks which were being held up. He received no formal permission ! from the officers of the Grand Foun- tain to hold these checks, though it was fully understood by them that they were "being . held. The officers of the Ga1and Fountain are also the officers or the bankf and or all the ; other affiliated institutions. i 'Union Is Hurtful. "Such on affiliation is detrimental 110 officerg 0j the Grand Fountain, holding in trust i and responsible for the funds of the , association, have no right to neglect rag the bank at the sacrifice of the reputation of the association works a most severe hardship and should be discontinued, It is impossible for the officers to occupy the same offl- ces in each affiliated organization and carry out in good faith their full du- ties and responsibilities."

To those of us who are constantly occupied time seems to pass with lightning-like rapidity, and it hardly seems possible that once more we are on the eve of our annual Fair. This Is our third anniversary and each succeeding one should be an improve ment on the last. To accomplish this we must all work together. We must see the needs and be willing to make the sacrifices and "lend our shoulder to the wheel," as it were, to accom plish the desired or required end.
