of the Alliance \Warehouse. I begin
this w eek by qfuotint, from Mr. Keitl t'

will have to be loft with Mr. Kvitt to
tell his own talo ahout it. 1H1t il
order to get as near at the trnt aits
possiblo concerning this and all other
matter!; connected with this c!ontro

of Iho )rsons who attolnded the two

and many others that could be given
if we had tho space.
If Mr. Keitt is correct, less thant
1-1 of the stock represented that day
was withdrawn from the meeting,
but, notwithstanding this insignili
cant withdrawal, wo are informed
that Mr. Koitt immediately withdrew
his insulting resolution that. fixed the
prico of the property tat r,2,000.0
and which condonmnod overy Oneo
who did not. agree with him, and
had another resolution adopted of
fering the same property at $1,5O0.0O.
A drop of $500.O() or 25 per cent. on
property richly worth $2,000.00, and
this in loss than ten minutes of time.
Verily the smaclil numiber leaving thie
mooeting must have been. a wonider'
ful eooponer to 'ring for'thI such
large fruit ini h a short t im11.
These poor, deoludoed, blind followers
should hauvo 1boon atteniding these5
stockholders' meetings long ago anid
pberhaps Mr. Koitt would niot have
sealed his book akgainst themn.
Mr. Koitt says something about
the saloe of t.he property being made(1
throughk the regular or prloper'
chkannell--l1 suposo leho meanIs the
(directors. That channel is no( longer'
opened. It is completely blockaded
by Mr. Keitt throwing his hugo form
longthwiso aLcross its mkouithi, and
while hiolding huis sealed 1)00k tight
ly in his airms, he cries oumt with a
lmid voice, "No stockhlolder shalhl seo
inlsido this book."
So the p)ublic wvihl readily observe
thbat the stockhkoldelri cannot, even
akpproachl this channlelol, and all this
comues about bocanso Mr. Keitt will
niot allow such ak thing. Is it niot
rue that wVhen tile mny wVas raised1
for this Warehiouse thalt eakchk inde
vidlual was i pproacheod and( asked Ic
suibscribe to the stock ? Should1( t.h
dlirectors now considlor it a b)roachk of
trust, a reflect ion on Itheir mnag~e
mont and an1 inksult to their honor foi
oach stockholder to ho conisulted
about the sale of his ownk proporty
and if lhe dlesires to sell thalt which
he paid his owni mon0ey3 for, is h<
comp)ollod, in order to keep peac<
wVith Mr. Keitt, to go to Ihim andE gol
his permission to do so' Thisi
tyranny ran mad. Again, did I 1no
