16 SECRET SOCIETIES. f Recognition of Colored Masons —The Trip to Philadelphia. Odd-Fellow Meetings in Ohio, Indiana, and Other States. Statistics Showing the Growth of the Order—-A. Lodge Revived. A Review of Pythian Legislation on the Mortuary Pond Scheme. KNTGHTS OP PYTHIAS. THB MORTUARY LAW. To the Editor of The Tribune, Chicago, June 3. —Some time ago considera ble correspondence appeared in your columns relating to that mncb-veied question, the 44 Mor tuary Law,** and 1 had hoped that this would have resulted In the more thorough examina tion, by the friends of the measure, of the status of the so-called law, and conse quently a withdrawal of its enforcement until the measure was passed upon by competent authority, and all doubts put at rest as to its constitutionality, not only in re gard to the right of a State body to pass such an enactment, but also as to the manner of its passage in the Grand Lodge. I regret, how ever, that all the evidences since appearing un fortunately go to prove that both the friends of the measure and the Executive in this State, still clinging to its existence as a law, look for Its enforcement, and the latter having declared quite recently, by official announcement, that the mortuary enactment was legal and constitu tional, necessarily must require of all lodges unconditional compliance with its requirements. 1 earnestly trust and hope that such a catas trophe will be averted, and such an issue will not be forced upon the Order at this time, sat isfied as 1 am from the very exhibit of the Grand Chancellor that the propriety, even were it law, must prove abortive, and consequently disas trous. One stock nssefsmcnt and two assessments for death losses have been made, and 1 find that on the last assessment more than one-third of the lodges arc in default. This can hardly be cheer ing to its promoters, or good encouragement to the Executive to press the measure. 8o far tho correspondence appearing in yonr col umns baa dealt with generalities, and has hardly come down to the hard facts of the case, and, as I desire that those who have not the time or the data ' at hand for reference should clearly understand the question, I have carefully examined the subject aud will endeavor, as briefly as possible, to review the facts as appearing on the journals of the Grand Lodge, and leave it to the good judgment of the brethren to decide as to the legality and constitu tionality of the so-called Mortuary law. Beginning with .the first reception of the measure, I find on pages 45 to 47 of the session of January, 3872, that a paper entitled ‘‘Provisions for a Mor tuary Fund “was presented as an amendment to the Constitutions of Subordinate Lodges, which waa’prespntcd by Asa W. Blakesly, of No. IS, and which was laid over until the following session and referred to the Special Committee on Revision of Laws. In January, 1873, and as appears on pages 57 and 58, the subject was brought up and was postponed, and though the Committee on Revision presented their report, as appears on page 84, yet the report as adopted (page 91) docs not refer in any way to the “Mortuary Fund,” nor does it appear in tbc revised Constitution. The matter then lay dor mant till the October session in J 873, when, as ap pearing on pages 34 to 42, the S social Committee ou Rension reported and suggested certain plans for the submission of the question. The report was considered in connection with some amend ments, and adopted. See pages 44 to 48. We next find that tbc Grand Chancellor, questioning the correctness of certain features in the enact ment, on page 10, at the October session in 1874, stated that he had net submitted the law for adop tion, and iu view of this, the changes necessary were made, and the subject put before the lodges for confirmation, resulting m the defeat of the measure. Not satisfied that the Order did not require this feature of cheap insurance to be engrafted upon the body, with a persistency which seemed to fat ten on defeat, the friends of this scheme, at the tame session, October, 1874, bring forward a new phase of the mortuary act, which, while it did not claim to be an amendment to cither the Constitu tion of Grand or subordinate lodges, yet, if prop erly located, ccrtainlv belonged to the former. On pages 159 to 161 appears a proposition styled •• Endowment Law of the Grand Lodge of Illinois K. of I*., ” and also a provision for a “sinking fund.” The signature only of N. M. Plotke appears attached to the document. The Committee on Laws and Supervision, page 172, recommended the adoption of the proposed measure, but just here the point was raised that, being a constitutional amendment, it should lie over. The Chair, in de ciding, asked the author “if they were in any sense submitted as amendments or simply as reso lutions,” mid the reply was “ Simply as resolu tions.” The Chair, however, ruled that “if the matter involved, or could be construed into a change in the law of the Grand Lodge, they then, and necessarily as snch, would, under the rule, have to lie over until next session and be printed. ” This ruling being conditional, I find on page 174 that tho matter was referred to a special commit tee of three, who, on pages 183-*4 reported that they were “of the opinion that the proposition submitted for an Endowment and Sinking Fund Is properly an amendment to the Con stitution, and would have to lie over one year. Wc therefore recommend that the resolution be laid npon the table.” This view of it was adopted, and at the session of 1875, page 324, the consid eration of the proposition os appearing on pages 159 to 161 of 1874 was made the special order for 1U o'clock Thursday morning. On pace 328 the subject appears called up for action, when a substi tute entitled “Mortuary Benefit Laws” was of fered, a proposition different in name and widely different in detail from the former document. This had no signatures, and was objected to on the grounds thaV it was a new proposition, and not competent to be passed on at that session. This point was overruled, and on the final vote the sub stitute was adopted—yeas 27, nays 10. This is the history of tbe legislation in this connection. Now let us sec how this meets tbe requirements of the law, and what grounds there could be for its enforcement. In order that tbe plan upon which all amendments to tbe Constitution must be pre sented may be fully understood, 1 quote from Constitution of Subordinates, Art. 17: “This constitution shall not be altered or amended, unless tbe proposed alteration or amendment be sub mitted iu writing signed by five representatives.” Let us see bow closely this has been conformed to. First, the original proposition (subsequently de feated) is signed only by Asa W. Blakesly. Second, tbe next proposition, as found on pages 159 and 161 of 1874, bears tbe lonely name “N.* 2a. Plotke,” and. in presenting it. It was offered “simply as resolutions.” Owing to the defeat of the first one, these * * reso lutions” became the original question, aud in their presentation bad not even a semblance of compliance with the requirements of the article quoted. This, however, was the basis upon which the next move was made, aud certainly seems to be poor foundation, since, if the original proposi tion is defective, all matters made pendant thereto would necessarily share tbe defeat. ■ But on fur ther examination we find that even in tbs last proposition no effort is made to cure tbs blunder or tbe original, and the substitute as appearing on page 328 is not even signed by one representative, nor was It even honored in the presentation by a representative. in thus reciting the legislation had In this con nection 1 have given page and date, so that those who desire It can view the subject for themselves; but, irrespective of these facts, 1 claim that, even If the defect iu tbe procedure bad not been fatal, the project, if at all admissable, could ouly be as sociated with the Constitution of the Grand Lodge, necessarily requiring submission to tbe Supreme Chancellor before becoming operative. The law pro-* Tides for its enforcement through the grand officers. The Grand Lodge become responsible for tbe pay ment of the mui. provided the labor be performed by the Clerk of tbe Grand Lodge, and tbe salary of that office is increased in view of tbe enactment, and yet it ia claimed to be an amendment to the Constitution of the subordinate lodges. Grand Lodges have no power to make assessments ex cept where the revenue fails to meet the current expenditures, and they certainly never had rele gated to them the right to convert tbe body into compulsory insurance. The proposition now pending before the Supreme Lodge leaves tbe mat ter entirely voluntary, and even this seems to meet with but little favor. 1 regret very much that the difficulty has arisen here, out trust the mature judgment of tbe Ex ecutive will lead him to change bis already pro nonncetl views in repard to the constitutionality of the enactment. Mr. “N. JL Plotke” may be a gentleman of superior ability and wide-spread influence, but even this would not add sufficient weight so as to render his signature to a proposition as forcible as that of “five representatives,” nor would the fact that the next proposition came heralded by Mr. Schmidt, notwithstanding tbe World-Wide feme of that great family, compensate for the lack of the legal requirement with which cot even in any one particular this curiously-pre sented document bad complied. There are many other features of objection that might be made to the status of this so-called law, but their mention . is unnecessary, as those already stated should be sufficient to sink any legislation, and render it null and void. If the friends of the measure had been its enemies they could not have more effectually worked for its defeat, and 1 earnestly hop* that, in view of thefaulty legislation bad, the Grand Chan cellor will pause before be acts in this matter, and by returning the Mortuary fund to private life pre vent a conflict of authority, which must assuredly be the result should he decide upon its enforce ment. 1 trust “ A Member ” and his advocate will hunt up these references and examine more fully the 4 ‘Supreme Constitution.” For myself I desire no more controversy, as I feel that the matter has reached a point where, should the Grand Chancel lor press the issue, intervention of his superior will be invoked. Even this letter should never bare been written, but that X hoped that .perilwJL if light was shed upon the record, different coun sels mi£ht prevail. F. C. 8.. Imperial Lodge No. 37. ODD-FELLOWSHIP.

Lewis (who now lies sick in his rooms at the Tremont House), assisted, amongst others, by John P. Foss and A. G. Lull, of Chicago, both of whom were present upon the extremely interesting occasion of reviving the long defunct body. During the troubles of war times the Comp surrendered its charter and effects, and ceased work. Re-commencing with seven teen of the principal and most promi nent citizens of that portion of the State, to unite in keeping the camp-fire burning, there Is every reason to look forward to a flourishing and successful career in its work of cementing the bonds of brotherhood and pouring oil into the wounds of the afflicted. The thanks of the visitors arc eminently due to their Kankakee brethren for the magnificent supper served at midnight in the Exchange Hotel hall. Every effort was exerted to con duce to the comfort and happiness of their guests. Before the charge of the hungry and the tempting blandishments used the delica cies of the season rapidly disappeared, leaving both tbe visitors and their attentive hosts in a pleasing frame of mind. PERSONAL. N. C. Nason, R. W., of Peoria, Grand Secre tary, was in the city last week. Jibe Grand Patriarch has appointed Grand Secretary Nason Grand Representative to fill tbe place of T. W.

G.; Jacob Mayer, V. G.; Thomas E. Miller, Treasurer; J. E. Thorndyke, Recording Secretary. MASONIC. RECOGNITION OF COLORED LODGES. . The Paris Monde Macotmlqtu for April con tains the following account of the Masonic rec ognition of the Grand Lodges of Colored Ma sons in Ohio and -Missouri: The Council of the Order of the Grand Orient of France, in its seance of April 8, on the proposi tion of Brother Canbert, recognized as regular Masonic powers the Grand Lodge of Colored Men of Missouri. Fraternal relations, supported by gamuts d'amitle, wilt henceforth be established be tween these Masonic powers and the Grand Orient of France. We heartily applaud these resolutions. The readers of theJ tonde Maconnlque have long known our opinion on the situation of tbe colored Masons in the United States. Wc are happy to sec Europe, and especially France, finally render jus tice to their cause. Their Masonic regu larity is incontestable. Like all the other branches of our great fami ly, colored Masons held their first constitutions from the Grand Lodge of England. Like other Masonic associations, they have combatted for principles which are dear to ns. Their bitterest enemies have not been limited to the adversaries of our grand Association, but have been Masons themselves, whom a deplorable prejudice domi nates, and which tbc light of Masonry has not been able to dissipate. To this unjustifiable conduct of those who should have been their first and firmest supporters, the colored Masons have constantly re sponded by testimonials of the most sincere feel ings. While the white Masons of America relent lessly shut their doors against them, far from ex cluding those who shut them out, they sought them, appealed to them, and invited them ear nestly to come and partake of their labors. Tbc recognition by the Grand Orient of Franco of the Supreme Council of Louisiana, the only Masonic body which, in the Unit ed States, admitted indifferently in its lodges white and colored men; then the*solcmn declaration made in 1869 by the Masons of France ‘ ‘ that humanity and Masonry were outraged when motives of race or religion sufficed to Interdict the admission of a profane into the grand Masonic family,” were hailed by tbc Masons of color as a promise of reparation—as the announcement of Setter days. Since then several of their Grand Lodges have solicited tbe recognition of the Grand Orient of France. Unfortunately, difficulties indc- Sendent of tbc will of the French Masons have bin ered, until tbe present, the establishment of of ficial relations with these powers. To-day this act of justice and of reason is an accomplished fact, of which all true Masons will rejoice with ns. Wc deplore the terra “Masonry of Colored Men,” which the exclusive spirit of tbe white Masons of America compels us to use when speaking of tho Masonic groups of which we are now treating. Wo hope these distinctions will speedily disappear, when we shall have men fraternally nnited in Masonry without distinction of origin or race. CENTENNIAL TRIP. E. B. Myer (33), V. L. Hurl but (33). T. T. Gurney (33), Sublime Princes of Oriental Con sistory and members of the Supreme Council, are now East making necessary arrangements for the coming visit of Oriental Consistory.

And Mr. Plonkett never stole a railroad, I believe; Nor dealt in crooked whisky, crooked fortunes to retrieve; Nor shared a plunderer 1 * profit his own Income to enhance; But 1 must confess, in passing, that he never bad the chance.

The late Prof. Wyman, in an article on the shell-mounds of Florida, argued that 44 The steady progress of discovery justified the infer ence that man, in the earliest periods of his ex istence of which we have any knowledge, was at best a savage, enjoying the advatages of but few of the newest inventions.” The term “primitive man,” Prof. Wyman thought to be a misnomer, if intended to be strictly applied; because the earliest traces thus far discovered do not reveal to us his beginning. “ This la still hidden,” Prof. Wyman states, “in that mysterious past out of which be has emerged and into which neither science nor exploration has as yet penetrated.” Geology, in fact, falls to reveal to us our actual beginning, for, as Cu vier writes, “the places where he [man] dwelt may have been utterly destroyed, and bones boned at tbe bottom of the existing s&3 ” BOSTON. Anniversary Week —Grand Reunion at Parker’s. Laird Collier at tbe fleeting of tbe Issoeiation for Aiding Discharged Convicts. What the Boral Hew-Englandai Thinks ol the Westerner, Ben Butler and Hie Good Loots—One of Wendell Phillips’ Saints. Special Correspondence of The Tribune. Boston, May 31.—Anniversary week, which Is Boston’s grand finale of spring, is just now In full blast. Tbe city streets are overflowingwlth strangers, and visitors from the rural districts are in great force. It seem to be a time of gen eral reunion, and old Bostonians who haven’t the New England appetite for daily meetings have a great relish for Anniversary week on ac count of the opportunity it gives them for see ing some far-away friend. Mrs. Spofford, the poet and story-teller, used to say that if you waited long enough iu tbe Parker House dining room you would meet anybody that you had ever heard of, because, sooner or later, every body goes to Parker’s. This certainly comes pretty near the truth on Anniversary days. Going in there Monday, 1 caught a glimpse of Emerson’s placid face BEAMING OVER A COP OF TEA at a literary admirer, and, before tbe cup of tea was replenished, 1 saw Alcott and Lowell and half-a-dozen other lights, amongst whom were two or tlirec prominent journalists. But tbe people best worth seeing after all are the rural visitors, whose good time is written in legible characters on their smiling lips and in their seeking eyes. And out of all this “rolling ocean the crowd,” as Walt Whitman phrases it, there is a veritable result of good which is unmistakable. 1 don’t think, os far as my own experience goes, that I have ever known a more earnest state of feeling, and a greater interest in Anniversary days, than is manifest in this Centennial year. And, thus far, the most interesting meeting has been that of the Society for Aiding Dis charged Convicts. Edward Everett Hale was there as Chairman, and amongst the speakers was your quondam townsman, Laird Collier, just returned from abroad. Everything went as smoothly os a croquet-ball on a freshly-trimmed lawn, until THE REV. LAIRD CAME BOWLING IN THROUGH THB WICKETS, He had listened to Mr. Joseph Story’s story, of how much good tbe Society was doing, and how grateful certain convicts were for the aid that had been given them after their discharge, until wc began to think that about all the good iu the community was in this worthy Society, and that convicts were really very interesting sort of fellows, and that we were all generally and individually rather a good set of kind hearted creatures who only needed to be told what to do in the way of chari ty and the rest of the virtues to immediately set about the performance. In this millennial state of things the Rev. Laird came. He said there was nothing he was more interested in than this convict question, and he thought that wewereinauytbiagbutamllleniiial state in regard to it. He believed the prison one of the grandest opportunities the State bad iu its hands for reform. And be told the story of THE GERMAN OBERMEYER, who visited the Munich prison aud found it a perfect hell of horrors and abuses. Allowed by the authorities to try his own plan with it, which plan was to malic the prison a home where beautiful influences should be employed, he made it so successful that the whole King dom gained by it in better law and order. One of tbe details. of his management was that every prisoner should receive wages—that is, a profit—when his work had exceeded in com putation the allowed margin of State remunera tion for his expenses, and this profit to be banked in the prison bank for such purposes, and duly credited in a bank-book. This system Mr. Collier declared was a greater help to the morals of the convict and tbe community than anything else. By this, the convict had an in centive to work, and could taste the fruits of honest labor, when discharged, he needed no aid by funds. He was prepared to meet the world, both by his experience in labor and the ready money which he had himself acquired. From this success in Germany, Air. Collier ar gued, wc might all take a lesson in this country. THE SPEAKER OF THE MASSACHUSETTS HOUSE OP REPRESENTATIVES, who had preceded Mr. Collier in his remarks, had implied approval of capital punishment. Mr. Collier at once disclaimed all sympathy with this law, and expressed his sentiments with great enthusiasm. At the present moment, perhaps, Boston was never so agitated in its mind generally and individually on this ques tion. And never, perhaps, so unitedly in sym pathy with the death penalty. Tbc recent mon strosities of crime in the case of the boy Pom eroy and Piper are, of course, the moving causes. The vehement earnestness of Mr. Col lier, then, and his sympathy with the crimi nal, his remarks that every criminal was capable of being rescued from sin and restored to a moral sense through kind and salutary influences, were received with audible laughs now and then from the disaf fected, aud a word flung out occasionally which boded opposition, and showed that these gen tlemen considered the Reverend Laird as GUSHING AND SENTIMENTAL on this particular point. When Mr. Collier asked the question, 44 Will anybody tell me when and where our crimlpol laws originated! ” there was a quickening of tbe breeze, but no one answered until Sir. Collier himself, in default of the answer, declared that they were the same as they were at Calcutta 3,000 years ago. At this, one after another, the voiedh of the dis affected cried out such passages as these from the Old Testament: “At tbc hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man I ” “ WHOSO SHEDDETU MAN’S BLOOD, BTMAN SHALL BIS BLOOD BE SHED.” To speak slangily, they evidently thought they “ had him;” butin the first lull Mr. Collier responded: “Yes, ami an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but I say unto you love your enemies. You may go on quoting the Old Testament till doomsday, but I will preach nothing else but the Gospel of Christ.” Cncs of 4 *Hcar! Hear!” and “Good! Good!” broke forth now, and one young man at my left shouted, “GO ON, LAIRD, OO ON?” But the Rev. Laird bad about said bis say, and jresently bowed to his hearers and retired with lying colors. The meeting after this came to a speedy end, and everybody seemed to be of opin ion that they had been not only edified, but en livened in an unusual degree. 44 Came from Chicago, didn’t heP* asked a far away rural brother, alter the meeting broke up. “Tell you what ’tis, these - Western chaps are spunky fellows.” The next meeting of great Interest to the mul titude was the memorial services at Music Hall. I don’t mean by this to slight the Unitarian As sociation and its doings, where Laird Collier again delighted the rural brother, and another Chicago light, Brooke Hereford, held forth in eloquence to a goodly audience; but 1 do mean to say that when the heretical multitude who 44 hate meetings,” and who want to be amused, saw in the morning papers that BEN BUTLRK was to give the oration at tbe soldiers’ memorial services at Music Hall, there was a rush for tickets; *nd at an early hour, consequently, the big hall was packed. Old friends of tbe General said he bad never looked better than on this occasion, but, in tbe eyes of a new acquaintance yclcped, this faithful correspondent, thfscompli ment was not easily appreciated. As I looked at the burly hero of New Orleans, I recalled the portrait of the old Lieutenant-Governor which was on exhibition at the Centennial art rooms recently in Boston, and Wendell Phillips’ roguish reproof when, as I looked at tbe heavy jaws of the portrait, I remarked, “LOOKS LIKE BBN BUTLER!” Look out how you abuse tbe saints! respond ed Mr. Phillips,—a response which points the moral of Inc portrait’s peculiar features. But the hero’s look of power, ids grim sar donic face, has a magnetic attraction for all of us. and his oration, though failing to move anybody, even in its pathetic touches, had the charm which power always gives. Of course the General was not mealy-mouthed in his ex pressions toward tbe South. They were not to ie petted, and flattered, and accepted into the Union, as long as they allowed the outrages against life and liberty that had been making them infamous since tbe War to go on. But when thev showed themselves law-abiding cit izens, he believed in grasping them by the hand, and not twitting them of the past. Frequently applauded throughout, specially at the telling stories with which the oration was Interspersed, where political points and weak nesses were caustically hit, at tbe close there were THREE CHEERS AND A TIGER given for the grim old orator, and the services came to an end. Dropping into Wesleyan Hall just after, I came upon the Woman Suffrage meeting, and, curiously enough, upon a discussion of the sof- frago question in connection with the Prohibition law, wnlch Butler promised to see enforced if he was elected, two or three years ago, under that ticket. W cndell PHILLIPS ALWAYS STUCK TO IT, that Butler icould have carried out that law. But the point that was made at the suffrage meet ing was in direct opposition to this firm faith of Mr. Phillips. But however much Massachusetts people abuse and doubt Gen. Butler in detail of faith and principles, they are enormously inter ested In this Lion out of Judah, and enormous ly proud of him when they are not afraid of him. And so endeth the first lesson of the An niversaries. The future days are crammed full of festivals, of which more anon. N. P. ' THE ROBIN. Sweet wildllng bird with ruddy breast* That singest high upon the elm As creeps the sun adown the West. What more would’st thou, the world thy realm? With thy small wings, from clime to clime, So free to come, so free to go. What more wouid’st thou this happy time, While apple-blossoms bud and blow? I list thy note, so clear and shrill. As on the air it floats to me, Upon ihe ev'ning air so still; What better ev’ning-hymn could bel Thy song to me U more than song; It thrills me as uo other bird. So loud thy clearest notes prolong. For 1 am to the soul-depths stirr’d. O backward years, ye sail a fleet. Borne on this birdling's simple note,— Some with white sails so fair and sweet, Some weather-worn like ships afloat. Some sail with careless, easy grace. Content to slip along tbe tide, Sweet years when youth aud flow’ra had place, And had a thought for naught beside. Some on again, with careful prow. Contend against both wind and wave, And, though the masts may bend and bow, They hold their way both firm and brave. The robin’s note is hush'd and still. And dim, like sleep, the ev'ning falls. And years of life that sail at will. Back, back again, 'til sweet note calls. Mbs. Coudelia n. Turner. MEDICAL. DR. FRITZ, Southeast Cor. Madison and Clark-sts. THE DTINO GIRL'S LAST WORDS.
