"Inquisitive Tax-payer" Answered.
Astoeu, Dec. 25tli, 1882.
Editor Daily Asterux:
In your paper of the 24th inst aro
some questions asked by "inquisitive
tax-payer, (delinquent tax-payer
would have been a more appropriate
pseudonym) whiehl Bhall, with yonr
permission, endeavor to answer.
At the meeting of the the board of
directora of school district No. 1,
when it was decided to collect the fivo
mill lax, the school clerk was instruct
ed to loan the money soon as col
lected on good terms as possible till
needed for building purposes. It
would, however, be very difficult for
., Azrann ,.. iMrt n An
linquent tax-payers money before he
pays it ill.
"Inquisitive tax-payer" or any
other person, can borrow what money
there is left on hand by giving suf
ficient guarantee that he will refund
the same with iutercst when required
by the directors.
The directors decided to levy
and collect the said five mill tax
this last season for the simple reason
that contractors will put in much
lower bids when they know the money
is in tho treasury than they will if
they have to wait the pleasure of
delinquent tax-payers to get their
Perhaps it would be as well for me
to give at this time somo of the
reasons why tho directors concluded
not to build the school house the past
season. As it is well known bids were
advertised for and the con
tract awarded to the lowest bidder
who soon after notified the directors
that he declined to take the job, as
signing as a reason that building ma
terials of all kinds had advanced in
price and that two of the articles
needed first, namely: lime and brick,
could not bo had under sixty days'
notice. The next lowest bid was two
thousand dollars higher than tho bid
accepted, so thi directors consulted
with some of the principal tax payers
of the district, and upon their advice
concluded to wait till the first of Jan
uary, 1883, and see if the contractor
will take the job of building the
school house at his bid. If he decide
not to enter into contract at that
figure, the directors will advertise for
new bids, so as to give tho contractor,
who over ho may be, ample time to
take advantage of the winter or early
spring market to buy his materials
and get the school house finished by
the 1st or 15th of August next.
Had the directors gone on with the
building and paid an extra $2,000 to
the next lowest bidder and htd to
pay from $1,000 to 1,200, for a year's
interest on borrowed money necsssary
to finish and furnish it; besides having
tho building dragging through the
winter months, like the Odd Fellows'
building, "Inquisitive Tax-Payer"
would have had greater cause for
complaint than ho has now.
If the tax-payers will lend a help
ing hand, utter kind words of en
couragement and vote another five
mill tax at the next annual school
meeting only a small loan will be
needed to complete a much needed
school house, one that every body in
.tho district may be proud of, and it
will be an ornament to the city as well.
But if contractors see that some "in
quisitive tax-payers" are finding fault
and grudgingly pay their school taxes
they are not likely to put in any very
If "Inquisitive tax-payer" knows
of any one who can build a school
house without money or levying and
collecting taxes it will afford mo tho
greatest of pleasure to have such a
person elected as my successor at the
coming annual school meeting for
school district No. 1.

The following are condensed from
late decisions as given in official
"l. Subordinate bodies are sovereign
as to tho amount they will pay to
their sick members, as weekly benefits,
but the same amount must be paid to
all sick members of the samo rank or
2. Lodges shall have tho right to
prescribe that a member shall bo in
membership for a certain time ere ho
is entitled to benefits and also to say
that a larger amount of benefits shall
be paid to a member of a higher de
gree in the order than to an initiate,
or one of a lower degree.
3. Lodzes have the right at any
time to increase or reduce benefits, in
a constitutional manner, and said in
crease or reduction operates aliko on
all, whother sick or well.
A. To be entitled to benefits of any
kind a member mutt bo in good stand- '
ing when takeu sick. He cannot, if
in arrears at tho time of being taken
sick, pay -up so as to entitle him to
benefits during said sickuees; nor, if
he is in good standing in a sick-benefit
paying society at the commencement
of his sickness, can ho become in
G. In a body which required that a
member Bhould be in membership six
months before entitled to benefits, a
brother was taken sick ere the six
months expired, and was sick several
months, it was a rule that after the
first six months had expired he was
entitled to benefits.
G. Lodges, etc., can make by-laws
prescribing the terras and conditions
upon which members shall bo entitled
to benefits, and all members are sub
ject to any changes or amendments
that may be made to said by-laws.
7. A written waiver or release
given by a member, stating "that for
certain considerations no claim will
hereafter be made for weekly bone
fits," etc., is illegal and void.
8. Subordinate bodies have the
right to adopt a by-law that when a
certain amount (say $1000) has been
paid to any one member for benefits,
that no more shall be paid to him
except at tho optiou of tho body.
9. A member showing that he has
been unduly influenced to report him
self well or "'out of ciro," can recover
10. A member who has ignored or
abandoned a claim for benefits for
years, c.innot revive the samo and
11. A member who, though sick
and disabled, is yet able to go out,
collect debts and make contracts, is
not entitled to benefits as a matter of
right or legal claim, but the matter is
entirely within the control of his
12. Legal representatives of a de
ceased member, other than widow,
orphans or dependent relatives, are
not entitled to his beneficiary dues.
13. The payment of dues, assess
ments, and a strict complying with
tho pecuniary and fraternal laws, are
requisite to entitle a member of his
family to benefits.
14. Insane members are entitled to
benefits. Also those who may be nick
and provided for by government, state
or local authorities.
15. A brother was taken sick who
was in arrears for duos, but the lodge
owed him for his services as an officer
an amount which if credited to him
would have placed him in good stand
ing prior to sickness. Held, that he
was entitled to benefits
1G. Lodges, etc., cannot donate to
or reinstate a member during sickaess,
so as to make him entitled to bene
fits. 17. Undecided charges against a
member does not deprive him of the
right to benefits, but Buspend payment
of them until a final decision. If de
cision is favorable to him, said bene
fits must be paid for the time said
charges were pending, and vise versa.
18. A member illegally suspended
or expelled, who is afterward restored
by action of the Grand body, if sick
during the time said suspension or ex
pulsion, is entitled to benefits.
19. A lodge has a right to withhold
benefits from a member of whom it is
believed that his sickness was tho re
sult of his own immoral conduct,
without bringing charges against him,
or even convicting him. He, how
ever, has a right to defend himself,

is one of mere fact as to "physical
disability," the judgment of the su
bordinate lodge is final

those particular laws, and cann t
