WORLD'S FAiR.CHICAGO, (893 Freight Business on the Panhandle is Booming. Freight business on the Panhandle Is booming aud every available car is In use and more are needed.Fourteen new firemen were employed today and others will be needed. A well- known Panhandle official said today that he did not know where all the loaded cars came from, nor how long the big business will last. The shipments of grain, meats, coal and merchandise are remarkably large, and if the business holds UD men in the railway service will have a busy time of it.

It is said there have been a few additional men employed, and in some departments the men are working longer hours than formerly, Master Masons Meet. A. J. Robinson and S. B.

Question in • Salt Against a Defunct Benevolent Association's Members. An Interesting suit has been Instituted in the Circuit court at Mt. Vernon, 111., by the receiver of the late Masonic Benevolent association. It Is against quite a number of the local members of the association in that city. The action complains of a plea of trespass on the case on promise, and is brought to recover death benefits assessed and unpaid, varying In amounts from 11.60 to $241.20. The plaintiff avers that at the time of entering the decree for the winding up the affairs of the association in 1894, there existed against the as- assoclatlon death lasses accruing to the beneficiaries of the policies already Issuec", a debt amounting to 1134.000, due and unpaid; that the plaintiffs named in the case agreed in their written application for membership to faithfully abide by the association's rules and regulations then in force, one of which bound the applicant to pay a death benefit on the demise of a brother member, said benefit to be graded according to the class in whfch each member was insured and in proportion to the amount insured. Plaintiff further avers that in conformity with the foregoing, and in obedience to the decree of the Circuit court, be levied an assessment against each defendant for the various amounts due and compiled with the law by mailing to each the assessments doe; that on the completion • of this work each defendant became liable and it was his duty to pay the receiver the sum of his assessment within sixty days from the date of the notice given; that, though the sixty days has long since expired, defendants had refused to pay the various amounts due; hence recourse is had to the courts to compel such payment. The association at the time of its dissolution had a large membership distributed throughout Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa and other western states. Suits similar to the ones begun at Mt, Vernon will be instituted against each member, and tlae result will be watched with interest, not alone on account of the novelty of the suit, ^ut because it will be judicially determined If a benevolent association- can legally reassess its members in'good standing to pay for the arrearages of delinquents.
