Douthltt, "are in tho same boat. If

the secretary, "owing to the fact that

Ilottomley testified that the real rca.
son for the adjournment of tho origin

Peacock had made ngalnst him. "That
reason," says the court, "Is not In the

show that the adjournment was 'owing

Messrs. Peacock and Lansing. This
I ronton seems to the Court a most rea
sonable one, for It Is butnatural that
the assembled shareholders should do
sire to first ascertain the financial con
dition ot the corporation before pro
