diet, 'we 'cite the following account of the
meant utea to aesiroy tne "Argus " company,
taken from the Journal before mentioned. It
It MSMwbat long, bnt it will repay perusal.
"The most remarkable feature connected
with the amalgamation of the Argus' Is that
II has been effected against the wish of the dl
reotors. The entire , transaction' was the sole
work ot flva gentlemen who held shires in the
company, tul vtr not in tmy uoyoanjuctd iclh
Ut pumajtmtnl. The matter was' so skillfully
oonauctea oy inese persons mat tne enarenold'
ers had no. choice but to accept the oronotal
made to them. The plan of operations was
described by one of themselves at the general
meeting or tae propnesjnrs, ant irom tnat ao
ooont the following particulars " have been
gathered. In April last, them fire eentlemen
succeeded In- 'getting themselves appointed a
committee of Inquiry to consider ,wnat steps
could be taken to benefit the compaoy.
" This appointment Was made In conwauence
of representations by one of their number
mat tne ousueas or tne association was not In
a flourlshlnc' state: and with the view of ena
bling the committee to make suggestions for Im
provla it thev had the nowerof examlnlnar
rus doms ana papers oi ine company, too
nronnauon una oouunea ror one purpose was
empioyea oy tne committee lor quite a diner
enl one. The directors havlni nceltlvelv re
fused to entertain the Idea of amalgatton, the
oonutltlee resolved, without any authority
whatever, and. In fact, behind the backs of
both shareholders and directors, to enter Into
negotiations for that purpose themselves. Hav
ing inus aewrminea 10 ouer tne company lor
sale, they had no difficult j, according to their
own account, In deciding where to look for a
purchaser, There could be no hesitation on
that point, and they Went accordingly to tha
gaiet omoer oi too asguv
" If practice In amalgamations could make the
operation pleasant to the morlbnnd company,
It could not fall to bs so In the bands of Mr.
JTelUooe. That gentleman has, perhaps, greater
experience in transactions oi inis sort man
any other Individual, and his nsme has. In con
sequence, becomb a potent word of terror In
tne insurance worta. . Tne tnreat oiDeingftaod
ed over to the office over which sir. Jelllcoe
presides Is always sufficient to coerce directors
or reduce refractory shareholders to order. A
cartons Incident which cccurred during the
meeting Just mentioned Illustrates bow widely
the reputation of Ifr. Jelllcoe It spread. A
shareholder named Hornby having censured the
oomautee .ror.ei cnoa offering ine 'Argus'
to' tne"aaurie.' instead or putting; it un to
ths highest bidder, was twitted with having
himself gone to Mr. Jelllcoe and offered to sell
the 'Argus' for a commission of two per cent.
The meeting was Instantly In an uproar, the
shareholders being Justly Indignant that any
one of their number should presume to dispose
of their property wltUutthoIr sulhorlty. When
order was restored, Mr. Hornby denied the
choree so far as retarded the 'Araus.' but ad
mitted its substantial truth with reference to
another oompany or wnlch he was a share
holder. No one at the meeting appears to hare
hrqulred what was the remuneration to be re
ceived by the committee for their labors in
transferring the 'Argus.'
"It is somewhat atrange that Mr. Jelllcoe
should listen to proposals coming from persons
wno nau no snaaow oi auinority rrom eitner
the shareholders or directors or the 'Argus' to
enter Into such negotiations. The five gentle
men who carried the Argus Company Into the
market, though accidentally in poesetslon of
minute information regarding Its affairs, had
no more authority to sell thi company than
they had to sell tne buslnera of the London and
Westminster Bank; and yet Mr. Jelllcoe and
ths directors or the 'Eagle'- treated with them,
and, after due consideration, made them an
offer of amalgamation. Tha matter was then
completely In the hands of the committee of
five. Their next step was to call a meeting of
tne snarenoiaere, ana lay tne proposal Derore
"It was. however, aulto evident that the
oommlltee had gone so far as to leave the
meeting no alternative In the matter. When a
scheme for amalgamation has advanced so far,
It is Impossible to stop. Oue thing Is quite
oertaln observed one of the shareholders,
tnat tne gentlemen nere taxing notes will pro
olaim II aloud through the empire that the
"Argus" Is a falling company ;' and people will
not feature to Insure there. Mr. Lloyd, one
of the most conspicuous members of the com
mittee of amalgamators, used similar language,
oy way oi inreai. -1 wu you mat we uve re
qulsltlonlsts shall not be likely now to let this
matter drop. It would be annihilate you and
us, gentlemen. It cannot stop. Whatwacald
by Mr. Hornby Is true I an Insurance cfllcels
lib Onsar'a wife there must be no suspicion.
Tha moment there cemea suspicion, there Is
ruin.' Thus Mr. Lloyd scknowledgcs that he
and his associates have, placed the Argus ' In
a pcctlon from which tbere Is no retreat. He
makes II a matter oi boast that tbey have run
the.vessel aground. The thing has no doubt
orien ocourrea Deiors nut ne oniei aotora
have seldom made so frank a confession.
"II Is not intended to deny that there are a
few. oases In whloh amalgamation, with the free
consent of all the parties conoerned, may be a
proper oourse to follow. Hut It oannot be de
sirable that one or two persons who have no
thlflff to do with the management of a comoauv
should have II In their power to force amalga
mation on both directors and shareholders.
This state or things It rendered possible by the
fact that there are companies who are ready to
treat with unauthorised persons, and do not re
ieol offers from whatever Quarter thev mav
oome. In this, as la other things, demand cre
ates a supply. There are persons quite willing
so give a nsiping nana to nutso tne aissoiu-
Hoo or a oonpaoy. .., ..
, " Mr.Kcfd Informed the 'Argus' sharehold-
ers, with the view of restoring any doubts tt
to tha legality of their proceedings, that he bad
already assisted at fifteen or sixteen cases of the
sort, and bad a couple more on bit bands at
mat instant. Tne presenoe oi uat gentlemen
