revocation of some local charters, 1l
denied charges that the Klan -in Penn-
sylvania was insolvent, informing
Judge Thomson that the state order
had assets of $10,000 and debts of
only $250.
Affidavits charged that the KLair
maintained a "super secret" organiza-'
tion within its ranks known as the!
"Black Robe Society" which punished
members who failed to obey orders.
Dayton W. Labach, Philadelphia jew-
eler, declared in one of them, that the
society staged floggings and tar and!
feather parties in his district and that
when complaint was made to Paul
Wintc "s, Philadelphia Klan leade r,
the latter openly stated he was be-
hind the society and its conduct.
Affidavits purporting to describ~e
specific outrages declared that Samnt
D. Rich then acting as grand dragon,l
directed the kidnapping in Pittsburgh
in June, 1923, of a four year old~
daughter of Mrs. Margaret Ulrich and
that this child was "secretedI" in the;I
