It seems certain that if th i bonds. In behalf of themselves and other requested him to go on with the work as matter Pt to a vote the men will de- i bondholders. i The plaintiff charges a conspiracy par- tlctpated In by the Allls-Chalmers bond holders' protective committee, of which James N. Wallace, president of tho Cen tral Trust Company, was chairman i the common stockholders' committee, of which Alexander J. Hemphill was chairman, and the preferred stockholders' committee, of which W. Emten Roosevelt was chair man. These committees made up the reorganisation committee which formed the Allls-Chalmers Manufacturing Com pany, which Is named as defendant The plaintiff asks that a receiver be appointed for the company If necessary to carry out the court's orders. The complaint recites that during the year and a half prior to December 31, 1911, the AlUs-Gtialmers Company, In common with many oilier manufacturers of heavy machinery and engines, suffered a bustneuj depression, competition was keen and prices were cut to get orders. The Allls-Chalmers Company was "ham perud by extravagant organltation and laxity of management," it Is alleged, and In the hitter part of 1911 the directors were trying to convert the assets Into cash in order to pay off the Indebtedneea prior to reorganisation. As a result the eighteen months previous showed a book loss of 1600,597. The plaintiff alleges that In the fall of 1911 the company and Its officers, who either held Its notes for iloans or were connected with financial Institutions which held them, conceived a plan of paying off the unsecured creditors In full and then through the device of foreclosure and reorganization to transfer all the assets to the new company without paying off the old bonds. Pursuant to this plan the Indebtedness was reduced from 15,000,000 to 12,500,000, and with cash of $931,047 on hand tho company decided to default on the pay ment of $27,700 Interest on the bonds. It Is alleged that the members of the bondholders committee were large hold ers of the company's notes and that their acts were opposed to the Interests of the real bondholders. The complaint charges that to carry out the purpose .of paying the unsecured creditors nt the expense of the bondholders tho company caused a friendly receiver- ship proceeding to bo Instituted In Now Jersey, and Its president Delmar W, Call, wss appointed receiver. For a year later the net earnings were $ROQ.ooo, but Instead of bclm: applied to payment of Interest as would have been done had the trustee under tho bonds nlud the re ceivership action, thn money was used for other purposes. This resulted In an Immediate loss of $1,000,000 to the bond hoMrrs, It Is alleged. The plaintiff also alleges that the re organisation committee bought the prop erty, worth $19,310,313, with additional quick atseti of $1,500,000, for a total of only $7,250,000. The committee then fixed a value of $36,000,000 for ths same prop erty and Issued $16,500,000 of preferred stock and $26,000,000 of common stock. An assessment of $5,193,000 was made against the security holders of the com pany. The complaint asks that the new com pany be compelled to pay the principal and Interest of the $ll.KI,00 In bonds, or that a new mortgage be executed. It also asks an Injunction to prevent any act which would render a Judgment (or tt puiatut ta Um ault laatactuai.

Oeorge. founder of the Oeorge Junior Republic, was urged to continue as national director by dlrec- io ui me .wionni Association of Junior Republics yesterday. The directors, called In the past The board of trustees of the Freevllle Republic where It was alleged' that misconduct ownfnH niu.. mat in m.I city and put themselves on record aa believing In his moral Integrity. Eleven out of the twenty-four national directors attended yesterday's meetlnr. seven being a quorum. There were three or four proxies, Secretary Lyman D. Stowe said. Those present agreed that the re. port of Joseph H. Choate, Supreme Court Justice Seabury and Miss Lillian D. Wald "exonerates William R. Oeorge fully In relation to the one serious charge, and while criticising the parental attitude of Mr. George toward the citizens of the re public, finds no Intent or purpose or desire to Injure or abuse in relation to the other matters under consideration." The special committee or Investigation found Mr. George guilty on two of the charges of 'wilful misconduct" before they added the clause "no Intent or pur pose or desire to Injure or abuse." It Is thought that the national directors found It hard to reconcile the one with tho other. They feel certain of the truth of that part of the verdict which had to do with no Intention of Injurlng'or abusing. In their resolutions the directors said they were cognlimnt of the "animus un derlying the accusations." They decided that the pending matters of the now Junior Republics In Ohio, Iowa and Ore gon be taken up again by Mr. George and advanced as rapidly as possible. He Is also authorized to assist and counsel the various Junior Republics as hereto fore, and to aid In forwarding .the pend ing project of the training school for Junior Republic assistants.
