THE CALUMET NEWS. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 1910. NEWS OF THE LODGES CHARGES AGAINST MODERN WOODMEN ARE UNFOUNDED Prominent Officers of Great In surance Order Refute Dam aging Statement. SONS OF ST. GEORGE BUSY Copper country members of the Mo-ilt-rn Woodmen of America will un-d.-ubteelly bo inte-re sted in the follow ing which appeared In a recent Issue of the ChliitKo Tribune: America's larKft fraternal order, the Modern Woodmen, was made the tthjeet of an Inquiry in State's Attorn ey W.i) man's ofllce in Chicago a few l.iys ago. Simultaneously a merles of charges was framed by a member of the order before State Insurance Su perintendent l'ottor of Illinois. This member of the order claims to have made a search of several years for evi dence and alleges larce Irregularities. Officials of the order say the man making this charge is a distinguished ex-oftlcial and that his allegations have no perlous basis. State's Attorney Magill of Kck Isl and county, who Is in the midst of an investigation of various fraternal so cieties having headquarters in Illinois, has also conferred with State's Attor ney A'ayman of Cook county on the developments as related to the Wood nun. Mr. Wayman's interest in the Modern Woodmen's management has beet) stirred by allegations that for several years a controlling clique In its f directory has not been turning Into the. order's treasury all of the interest on , i its big deosits of funds, but has been "raking off" interest above two per cent by special arrangements with cer tain banks. The possible profits In Mich an arrangement are shown by the statement of cash on hand on April 1, 191 when there was JJ.41S.S55 in the benetlt fund and $soj,15S in the general fund, a total of I3.-J21.013. On this basis of average deposits and as suming that the depository banks paid 3 per cent the yearly profits in the al leged private agreements would be $3-"00. Members of the Woodmen's direc torate deny they have been in any way derelict in their duties and have said, when suspicious circumstances were called to their attention, that enemies have been responsible for the stories i'f Irregularities. Assistant State Attorney Thomas Marshall, however, has received some information en the charges regarding the management ,,f the order and has promised numbers of the Insurance brotherhood that a thorough investiga tion of the nreus'itloin will be made. Whether other action will follow he Is unable to say. Sons nf St. George to Reunion.

Monaghan Will Lecture at Sacred Heart School Tomorrow. ON HOW OTHER HALF LIVES Professor James C. Monaghan of New York, who will lecture on "How the Other Half Lives" in the Sacred Heart schewd auditorium tomorrow eve ning, under tho auspices of Calumet council. Knights of Columbus, has held u place on the faculty boards of Wis consin and Notro Dame universities. For several years he was prominently Identified with the consular service. He is u man of exceptional talent und a conspicuous example of tho highest type of Catholic citizenship. Concern ing his ability as an orator, Denis A. McCarthy, associate editor of the Su- red Heart Review, says: "It Is hard to tell accurately wherein lies tho jKivver of Professor Monaghan over his audiences. It Is not so much In tho words he utters, though they are always distinguished by force and scholarship and literary flavor. Nor is It In abundance of action, wherewith some speakers seek to help out their delivery. Monaghan 'uses but little gesture, lie stands for the most part with his hands In his pockets, or with one hand in his pocket and tho other bedding his glasses, lie never saws the air or Indulges In any school-of-cl- ecution gymnastics. "His physical appearance Is not trlkingly impressive. He has not the commanding presence of tho old-time rators. He lacks tho leonine head. the deep chest, the thunderous tone of the conventional western spellbinder. Ills hearers sit up and take notice w hen he begins to toll, In his own In imitable way. some little story that has them all laughing before they are nwarc; and then, when, with a sudden hango of manner, he grows intensely serious and. reaching down Into the lepths of his soul, brings up some sol- mn or heart-reaching thought, some luostion of morals or ethics; when he unrolls it before his audience, and ex amines and probes it In keen flashing sentences; und when ho drives It home with glowing eyes nnd terrible earn- stness, then It Is that his wonderful force and power begin to inanitesi themselves. "There Is only ono way te account or tho spell which ho weaves over his audience, and that H genius. Rut it Is more than genius. . It Is the power of the man who knows." Musical Program. The following pupils of Prof. A. Ks- pel will render musical numbers at the lecture- hero tomorrow evening: Miss Frances Schnellor, Miss Kleon- cra Kspel.AIlss Irma Knlfel, Miss Ve ronica Avanskl, Miss Margaret Uring dahl, Masters Kmmet and Cornelius Harrington, Edwin Cllocke.
