Lodge Beats Bank Damon Lodge of Knights of Pythias used to be a depositor in the First National bank. At that time it had as one of its officers, W. A. Rice, who acted as secretary. It was part of his official duty to correspond with the widow of one of their members, transmitting to her the lodge’s check in payment of funeral benefits. It appears that instead of the check be ing transmitted as drawn, Rice changed it to his own name as payee, an dfailed to transmit it. The lodge contended that the bank was liable to it for having withdrawn from its account money upon the presentation of an altered check. The bank ac cepted that view and repaid the lodge, which thereupon paid the widow $75 as it had intended doing in the first instance. Later the First National bank reimbursed itself by withdraw ing without the consent of the lodge, $75 from the lodge account which re mained in the bank. Out of this arose a suit by the lodge against the bank, which was decided in Judge Thrush’s court last Friday in favor of the lodge. The case brought a host of witnesses to the court, most of them for the lodge. The victory means much to the lodge and more to its counsel, who was Lawyer Townsend. He was ar rayed against the great law firm of Dorsey and Hughes, and won. We are informed that the criminal case against W. A. Rice was dis missed just after this civil suit, and he has gone to other fields and pas tures new. For several months the state permitted the case to be post uoned, an act for which no explana tion has yet been given. ANTI-LYNCHING SOCIETY WIELDS WIDE INFLUENCE W#rfc Fbr Human Prat—flaw Receives •übetantlal AM. Boston.—The work and Influence of the Antl-Lynchlng society, composed of a large number of thrifty and Intelli gent colored women of this city and riclnity, are being felt for good In many sections of the country. Its growth has been substantial and Its work thorough. Scarcely a lynching has taken place in any part of the United States without Its deep concern for the punishment of the guilty per petrators. The April public meeting of the so* city was held In Faneuil hall and was* attended by many of the leading white and colored citizens of this community. Among the speakers were such well known men as the Hon. A. ifi. Fins bury, Bishop Alexander Walters of New York, Rev. Dr. A. Mark Harris of Jersey City, N. J.; the Rev. Herbert 8. Johnson, Mr. Darius Cobb, the noted artist, and the Rev. James Foster. That the women have the ear of the public in more than an ordinary sense may be seen from the fact that in their efforts to investigate the cause of lynchings in the various sections of the country they have often received sub stantial financial assistance from a distance. As an encouragement in this direction the Colored Women’s Non partisan league of San Francisco sent $5.35 and the William Murray lodge, Knights of Pythias, donated $5 toward the expense of the meeting. The organization has reached the point where it has to constantly seek legal advice in order to do the most effective work of investigation, and it is hoped that our men of legal lore will consider it a privilege to co-op erate with the officers of the society in giving the necessary advice. Mrs. M. Cravath Simpson, president of the organization, has labored as* slduously to bring the work up from an obscure position to its present place of Influence and usefulness. She has had the support of the other officers and members who, like herself, labor constantly for the promotion of Justice and respect for human rights. WANTS LYNCHING STOPPED. Right Um of tho Ballot Will Do It, Saya Dr. W. A. Croditt. Ip an able article which appeared In a Philadelphia paper not long ago from the pen of the Rev. William A. Oreditt, LL. D., are found the following inter eating and logicul statements: "It is difficult to make us believe that our nation can exert influence to the advantage of the Hebrew in Rus sia and at the aume time be unable to exert' an influence upon the states where our people are lynched without trial, without Judge, without Jucv. and portions ol tile charred, riddled, muti lated and dismembered bodies carried around as souvenirs. •‘The colored men In the section of the country where they have the right of franchise have a mighty power in the ballot. Let them, as the Hebrew, remember, no matter how highly they themselves may develop, their develop ment, opportunities and successes are only theirs in order to help their suf fering brethren and they are connect ed by blood with the colored men who suffer in certain sections of our country. “If the Hebrews in America can succeed in having America protect the Hebrews in Russia, why may not the colored men of the north so use their political power as to cause the statesmen of this section to cf-me bod ily out in their utterances and say, ‘Lynch law must go?’ ” Dr. Creditt is the successful pastor of the Cherry Memorial Baptist chureh in Philadelphia.
