PEOPLE'S POPULAR CONCERT
The business connection! of the
Washington Ja tlg-nt Company and
the Geersetown Gas Light Company,
particularly the purchase of 3,510
shares of the ,000 shares of the
Georgetown companjj by the Washing
ton concern, was made the subject of
vigorous protest yesterday morning In
the form, of a suit egalnst the Wash
ington Gas Light Company filed' by
Thomas I Hume, one of the stock
holders In the defendant company.
In accordance with the suit the gas
company was later cited by Justice
Bernard to show cause next Friday
why a trustee should not be appointed
to take charge of the stock of the
Georgetown company and why that
stock should not brf eventually pro
rated among the stockholders of the
In addition to the company at large
the ofllcers iOf the company are named
as defendants. They are Joseph Letter,
president, and Howard S. Reeslde, Ord

William K. Orme, and Lawrence Town
send. It Is the contention of Mr. Hume, who
files his suit In behalf of such other
stockholders as may also desire to In
tervene, that the purchase of the
Georgetown stock, with the surplus
profits of the company and without the
permission or all or tne stocanoiaers
was unlawful. The complainant holds
that the money really belonged to the
stockholders and that therefore tne
stook purchased with It belongs to the
stockholders and is merely held for
them In trust by the gas company.
Statement r Home.
In talking of the transaction after-
nard. Mr. Hume said:
"This situation Is a corporate para
dox. The Washington Gas Company
holds for Its stockholders, a majority of
the stock of the Georgetown Gas com-
pany.and yet It does not control or di
rect that company.
"If this holding. Is a legal one. It en
titles the Washington Gas Company to
control the Georgetown Gas Company,
yet it does not control It: It entitles It to
direct that company's policy, yet It does
not direct It; It entitles it to take pos
session of that company, yet It does not
possess It; It entitles It to appoint di
rectors, a president, and other officers,
and to administer the company's affairs,
yet It does neither.
"In July last the Georgetown Gas
Company declared a dividend upon Its
capital stock, and It paid that dividend
to the minority stockholders of, record,
but held back, and omitted to pay the
Washington Gas Company that propor
tion of the dividend which accrued to
the majority shares held by the Wash
ington Gas Company. The Washington
Gas Company has its stockholders'
money tied op In this Investment, over
which It exercises no control and from
which It collects no return."
