TTTE OMAHA DAILY I1EE: FRIDAY, "MAY 13. IQftt.
FIVE THOUSAND FOR SPINNEY Annual 8Ury of Banker Union Prsstfsct Fixed Aftsr a Tight. ORDER CLOSES ITS TUMULTUOUS SESSION Bylaws and C'oollmtlo Be Be v J serf Splnaey Declares Saprtnt Court'! Mandate Will Be Compiled With. The whlte-wlnged dove of peace hovered over the closing session of the Bankers' fnlon of the World at Crelghton hall yes terday afternoon. There whs considerable debating, motioning and amending when It came to fix the salary of the supreme pres- ident, Dr. E. C. Pplnney of Grand Island. W. 11. Thonrpson, chairman of the com mittee on law, started the ball rolling by making a motion that the president's sal ary be placed at $5,000 per annum. This precipitated a general discussion, with the result that In a few minutes the chairman had a motion, several amendments to the motion and a number of amended amend ments, all In connection with Dr. Spinney's salary. Delegate Frans moved that the salary be fixed at fc!,5u0; Delegate Q. F. Pierce of Des Molnea thought that $10,000 would be a fair compensation; O. B. Dillon of the committee on law then moved for $3,0. At this point Delegate Canfleld of Minnesota made a ringing talk, saying: "Let us understand where we are, as so many things have occurred since January 1 that we don't know whether there Is $l.uu0 In the treasury. Are you going to compel us to do Impossible things? The only sen sible and logical thing to do is to allow the board of directors some latitude. I pro pose to resign If you are going to fix an arbitrary amount. I would be In favor of naming a maximum salary. If Dr. Bplnney can earn $5,000 a year and I hope he can I am In favor of that amount. For heaven's sake let us work for the Interests of this organisation. If we can arrange with Dr. Spinney to work for 1000 until we get on our feet ugain, let us do that." Decide on Fire Thousand. Delegate Hopper of Omaha then made an amendment to the original motion, fixing the salary at an amount not to exceed $5,000, the exact amount to be paid to be left to the discretion of the board of direc tors. It Anally was agreed to fix the su preme president's salary at a figure not to exceed $3,000, at the discretion of the board. It Is said this officer has been receiving $600 per month during his last term of office. The salaries of the supreme secretary, banker and correspondent were fixed at $1, fcOO, $600 and $1,200. respectively. The law committee reported certain amendments to the constitution and by laws, which changes were ratltled by the delegates. The moat Important change was one whereby the voting by proxies at the grand lodge is abolished. After allowing various expenses incident to the meeting and installing the newly elected officers, the grand lodge adjourned sine die. After the meeting some of the moving spirits of the anti-Spinney faotlon stated that they accepted their defeat for the time being, yet they Intimated that the end is not yet. It Is said a complete report of the proceedings will be compiled by the late supreme secretary, banker and medical adviser and submitted to the attorney gen eral at Lincoln with a view of determining whether the actions of the session have been legally performed. They contend that at least six of the delegates were not mem bers of the organisation, and that sixteen proxies were voted, besides other Irregu larities in the proceedings. It also was stated that there Is more or less discord in four of the local lodges, and that com ing meetings of these lodges will be fraught with much Interest. These four lodges con. tain a membership of about 400. Says II Will Obey the Caart. In speaking of the dispatch from Lincoln which stated that the re-election of Dr. C. K. Spinney as head of the Bankers Union of the World, according to the of ficers of the state Insurance department. Is without effect unless alleged irregular ities complained of are rectified. Dr. Spin ney Bald: "Everything will be arranged according to the orders of the court Two of the orders of the court already have been compiled with and the third which provides that I am not to receive any money from the order with the exception of such sal ary as may be voted me by the board of directors, will be taken care of. At pres ent, the order owes me quite a large amount of money, my claims for which probably will be waived. In this way the books will be cleared and the order of the court carried out." The injunction issued from Judge Troup's court to restrain the organisation from voting proxies or electing officers did not have the effect desired by Its author and consequently it was withdrawn. One of the bolters in speaking of the matter said: "We made up our minds there is nothing In sight worth fighting for. The organisa tion owes at present about $50,000 in death claims and has about $2,000 on hand with Which to meet its liabilities. In addition to the death losses the officers' salaries have not been paid during a period covering about five months and this unpaid item amounts to about $5,300, in addition to the death losses: At present the total reoelpts of the torder are only about $3,000 per month." A portion of the morning was spent In modifying the constitution to fit the orders of the supreme court. These orders, among other things, provide that the board of directors shall not Include supreme of ficers of the order and that the board shall consist of at least eight members.- Nine members were elected at Wednesday's meeting. The order also provides that no money shall be paid out except upon the approval of the board of directors and that the supreme president shall renounce all claims against the association except such alary as may be voted to him by the board of directors.

In order to reorganise, we found It neces sary to elect an entire new set of officers with the exception of Dr. Spinney, and he was retained in the position of supreme president because he is thoroughly familiar with all details of the affairs of the con cern and is the only man whom we could select who would be famlllnr enough with the affairs of the organization to help It out of trouble. Miss Burdock also was re tained as supreme correspondent for much the same reasons." Will Revise Bylaws. W, H. Thompson, chairman of the law committee, said after the morning meeting: "We will immediately take steps to re vise tho bylaws of the association in such a way that the business can be conducted along safe lines. We will soon have mat ters adjusted so the order will be estab lished upon a firm foundation, and after it Is in that condition we will see that it Is kept that way." The matter of reinstating members who have dropped out during the recent trouble of the order was taken up at the meeting and a resolution passed providing that such members as have lapsed can be reinstated upon presentation of a medloal certificate, showing they are In a good state of health, and by paying their dues and assessments for the month of May. M. T. Bwarts, supreme banker, submitted his report for the two years since the last general meeting, which was. received end placed on file. Supreme Secretary E. H.
