Grand Lodge, A. 0.U:
in the Montour
The Claimant's Father Died While Suspended as a Member of the Order, and
the Effort to Secure Payment
Adverse Decision
A ease of considerable importance
o ml v Sde-spn'ad Interest in this state
was decided by the Supreme Court yes
terday at noon. It was that of Lillie
Myrtle Montour, a minor, against tbe
tlrand Lodge jof Oregon, A. O. U. W..
on appeal front the -circuit court of
Multnomah eonuty. Judge M. C. George
presiding. The plaintiff Is the heir of
Dan Monlouty who was a member of
Fig lion lodge, at. Oswego, and who
dlel a t a. time when Hie lodge and he
LIuisHf, evhlently thought he was
iHTiuaiH'utly iusiieudod from the order.
After his datb, she nought to hare the
Grand Lodge iay the . amount of his
iK-wliHary certificate, which was re-1
fused, lienee this suit, whlcfh was tried
to a jury in June lMW aiul a Yerdict
obtained against the order, from whicli
the apiMiil wa taken to the Supreme
-Court and there argued on Oetober
1th. , . -. i: -5 !
It augurs that Montour became de
fllliHfMvut in the assessments for May
am! June 1M!H. and his lodge paid these
usscssuicnts :for him, but when tin
July assessment also liecanw delin
quent, lite bulge usiended trim oil the
2'tk day of Jnly. The laws or the A.
O. U. W provide, that a uiemlier may
re instate himself at any time, within
thro month from tbe date of sus,en
liii by the payment of delinquent ass
essment and iiecding assessments, but
after thre I moiit.1i tliere must lie a
ttctr medical examination md" n voo
of the bw1g to reinstate. Therewa
it payment made for er by Montour
nftcr his susi-nsioii until Novemtier
15th. wli'tt a sum to cover delinquen
cies was paid, l rhe linanHer. No ac
tion was taken by the hslge until Jan
uary, l.s&t, when Montour's medical ex
amination jwas presented." together
with more money 10 cover k'Hiiquoiicy.
Imttlie lodge by rote refused to re-Instate
trim. I Mnitour took no a pj teal to
the Grand Lodge or any oilier step, and
(wlil no further attetitlou to the matter,
but died, tin following' year in that con
dition, t '
j"he pr!n-lpal claim relied upon by
1hj claimant was that 1n the spring of
IN'I tuifficieut money liad liecu paid to
.ihe financier for Montour to pay one
more assessment than he was -credited
with, which, with the two assessments
paid by tlw hfdge, would liave covered
the July assessment, Iieuce he- was hot
'legally suspend d mi til August 2JSth.
and eoheinioiitly the payment iu Nov
rnd.Tr was', clearly -within, the three
''month, and of Itself establislied a re
instatement, u rliis contention,', tbe
claimant was aided by the man who
was then financier.
The attorneys for the f Stand Lodge
veil d iti-a the law and lite facts to
reverse the Judgui tit. Reliance was
Idaced tqiuii the universal decision of
the courts so far that the meuilvrs of
an order must xhaust all the tribunal
of the order Is-fore the, civil courts will
Interfere. The claim was made that
tle verldet was wliolly unsu'fported by
facts and was Voutrary to the instruc
tions of the courts
The court hi passing on the cflo re
