Julius G. Stendel vs. Longshoremen's Protective Union Benevolent Association
The Association was "a colored labor and charitable organization" with 1,100 members. Its object was to find work and fair wages for its members and to provide for families of deceased members. Its hall was on Jackson Ave. near Franklin St. The Association fell into debt and, in trying to reform and reduce its outstanding obligations, suspended purchases from a number of former providers, including Stendel.
Stendel was a druggist who had done business with the Association for many years. On September 15, 1905 he sued the Association as a creditor, claiming a balance due for drugs provided to its members. His attorneys subpoenaed all of the Association's books. Judgment was rendered in favor of the Association on November 27, 1905.
In addition to the pleadings filed by attorneys on both sides of the suit the record also includes:
