Some one told him to raise his hand and (hid Hie serpent, lit- raised his hand, but, naturally, found no .serpent, for ihut; ci'ea.l.ure is loo wise lo be raught by n blindfolded num. His failure was probably expected, for a voice exclaimed "You did not find it. but II, has found you!" Strictly speaking, this was not true, for wliiit really found him was a hot. 1 branding iron, wlrh whii-ii ho 'was, branded twice on the breast. But Treble's sense of outrage and wrong wns just us great as if it had been a veritable serpent. And, therefore, he poured forth his tale'- ot woe In the- Waltbam District Court: before Judgd' Enos F. Luce the other day. The officers of the lodge offered no evidence in rebuttal of treble's charges. Obviously, ihey could not do so,, without dragging the secrets of the order into public light. But the counsel for the accused argued that no' proof hnd been submitted that there had been any departure from the regular form of Initiation, and, moreover, that the complainant, having voluntarily applied for initiation, was thereby estopped from objecting to nny feature of it. But Judge Luce very properly disregarded this plea, and imposed n- tine of 535 each on six ofllcers of the. lodge. If Treble told the truth—and no attempt was made to impugn his testimony—ho was treated with unjustifiable harshness aud cruelty. It is neither good law nor good morals to say that because a man npplics for membership iu a society Its members may subject him to any indignity or outrage whatever in Its Initiation ceremonies. The public has no concern with the internal affairs of nuy society so long asjt transgresses no law, ami does not offend' against public order and decency. But a society is no less amenable to the law than an individual and the outcome of this case in Waltham ought to impress npon all societies the danger of allowing their desire to have fun with a candidate for initiation to overstep the bounds of propriety and justice.
