McNAB STARTS SUIT
AGAINST SHERIFF
Attorney Makes Bitter Com
ment on Action of the
Commissioner
l« from some rusty screws,
crackers and cheese and a few musty pa
nothing , of Interest was Jound
in t'ne vaults of the Continental Blind
ing and Loan association, wliirli were
forced yesterday by experts working
under direction of Oorp* , S. Walker,
commissioner of state building and
loan associations.
The massive steel vaults were opened
by an who, although not ac
quainted with the combination, was
able to accomplish his purpose by lis
tening to the tumblers fall. The door?
were opened thirty minutes after he
started working.
It was necessary to drill the inner
safe, an old fashioned affair, used as
a strong box. It was in this the
commissioner hoped to find the books
and money of the institution.
Suft against Sheriff Fred Eggers and
Ins surety, the Pacific Coast Casualty
company, for $50.0t)0 for •"willful! and
violent entry into the of the
Continental Building and Loan associa
tion, at Market and Taylor streets, was
filed by Attorney Gavin McNab yester
day in the superior court. The plain
tiff alleges that Sheriff Eggers or
dered his agents to force their way
into the offices of the corporation,
thereby interfering with peaceable
possession of the plaintiff in the
premises.
HIV TO GET COMBINATION
Before opening the vaults
sioner Walker made every "effort to
secure the combination from officers of
thp institution.
Gavin McNab, director of the con
cern nnd its legal adviser, over the
telephone told Mr. Walker that he
wouldn't give him the combination if
he had it, for he felt that he must
refuse "to help a burglar in his opera
tions.''
night a formal demand was
made by Mr. Walker on William Oor
bin, secretary and general manager of
the Continental, and on Gavin IfcNatl
for possession .if the books, papers and
assets of the concern.
"All I can say about Mr Walker,"
said Gavin McNab yesterdat, "is that
as a man trained by Marshall Black
be i= not a person we care to have
handle th<> money of the depositors of
the Continental. fhe action of the
sheriff and Walker was . absolutely
without warrant of law, and all those
connected with it will suffer. Suit haa
!>»p!i riled against the sheriffs bonds
nxM). :in<l just a.s .«oon as we hear from
Sacramento we will file a similar suit
against the bondsmen of Walker."
WAuan retiree statement
The following statement was issued
by Commissioner Walker:
"I f~el that. In justice to the public.
I should now make a statement of my
hop** and expectations in regard to the
future liiiuidation of the Continental
Building and Loan association, should
it be declared by the court that it is my
duty to liquidate the same. First of
all. I fully realize the magnitude of this
proposition, and now say that while I
have never in my life shirked a duty I
would willingly and gladly turn this
matter over to the state superintendent
of banks for liquidation could I legally
do so. and some time ago I discussed
with Mr. Williams, the superintendent
of the banking department, this propo
sition.
"I have also in the past set forth a
tentative proposition to one of the di
rectors of the Continental association
that I was ready at any time to agree,
could it legally be done, to have a thor
ough and exhaustive examination made
of the assets and liabilities of this as
sociation by any reliable firm of certl
n>ri accountants of the city of San
Francisco and if bo shortage way found
I would cheerfully withdraw, but 'in
case a shortage was found it should he
made up at once. Thus was my brand
of dollar for dollar talk, but it was not
accepted.
< Ol It IN Ml ST DRCIDK
"Thi> ( ourts will soon decide whose
duty it is to liquidate the affairs of this
association, and should It be my job
there will be no shirking; there will be
no unnecessary expense; there will be
no hesitation in bringing civil suits
against any man or set of men against
whom actions should be brought,
whether he be a beggar or a million
aire, and in this determination no man
or set of m*n in the state of California
have enough drag or power to pull me
down. OKO. S WALKER.
