A Lodge has a right to levy a tax upon its members. This is paid under the name of "dues" or "quarterage." The subject of dues is a local matter, with which Grand Lodges should not interfere; yet it must be admitted, under the theory advanced elsewhere on the subject of by-laws, that a Grand Lodge has, if it chooses, an unquestionable right to adopt any regulation controlling the action of its subordinates, in respect to this tax.
