Crawford against J. H. Squler and his assignee, J. B. Smith, for an Injunction and the appointment of a receiver, was before Judge Cox, In the Equity Court, this morning?Messrs. Cook and Cole for complainants, -Messrs. Allen Rutherford and R. D. Mussey for Squler, Judge Shellabarger for the assignee, and Mr. N. Wilson for District Commissioner Edmonds. Mr. Squler 1 and a number of his creditors were present. Mr. Squler's answer was read denying the allegations in the amended bllL He denied every charge of fraud or attempted fraud, and asserted that the assignment was made equally for the protection of the creditors. Mr. J. B. smith, the assignee. In his answer said That at the time of the assignment there was but $700 in the bank. lie denied that Squler or any one had taken away or suppressed auytiling of the assets. He states that he is unable to give the amount of liabilities, because he does not know i the amount of squler's paper out. He denies that i he Is under the control and Influence of squler, or i that the assignment is virtually an assignment to < Squler himself. He admits that he has received no i schedule of assets except from the books: but he believes that a correct account can be made. mr. edmonds' relation's with Sqt'ier. Mr. Smith's answer further states In regard to the averment that Squler had a silent partner, , some responsible person, "that this respondent has 1 no knowledge in regard to said matter, except that he Is informed and believes that James B. Edmonds, of the city of Washington and District of Colum- 1 bla, was at the time of and before the said assign- i ment under a contract relation with the said Squler, i which relation was rfom time to ilme evidenced by i several written contracts between said Edmonds and said Squler. Respondent is not able to give a copy of the said contract now In force. He requested said Edmonds to permit respondent since < the assignment was made to see the contract, but the said Edmonds did not furnish such inspection to respondent. That at the time the said assign- . ment was made, to wit: on the 7th day of June. J 1884, and for several years before that time, said contract or contracts existed between the said J. H. squler and Edmonds, the substance of which was as respondent can state, as follows:?That the said Edmonds would and did furnish money to the said Squler, the amount whereof respondent cannot aver, for which a note or notes were given to t he said Edmonds, and It was agreed by said writings . that said Squler would buy pay vouchers at such rates as to yield a certain designated proflt; that . these vouchers should be delivered from time to time to the said Edmonds, and that there should be collected by the salt squler, when they became . due, upon his delivering to said Edmonds other . vouchers or equivalent amount and like kind with those surrendered for collection; and that In the , settlement or the said matters relating to the said vouchers, as purchased under the said written conI tracts, the said Squler should pay to the said Ed1 monds the principal sum by him advanced and ev- j ldenced by said promissory notes, and also the Interest on said principal at the rate of one and one-half per cent per month. In view of the matters atoresald existing between the said Edmonds and 1 the said J. H. Squler, respondent believes and \ charges that respondent, as assignee, and the j creditors of the said J. H. Squler k Co., have an i Interest in all vouchers purc hased under said con- < tracts, and are entitled to have an accounting In f regard thereto, and avers and charges that the said i Edmonds Is a proper and necessury party In this 1 case. Respondent Ls informed and charges that a i i large amount of vouchers of the kind called for and i described In said written contracts between the i said Edmonds and said J. H. Squler, and which , were purchased by said Squler pursuant to said i written contracts, are now in the sate claimed by 1 said Edmonds as private property, and which ls In 1 the said banking room on Pennsylvania avenue, in t this city; and t he respondent avers and charges t that the said vouchers ought, under the order or the court to be placed In the possession of this respondent and assignee, for the purpose or taking , said account and for the purpose or securing any interest which said creditors may be found, under the direction and order or the court, to have in the same. Respondent has not since said assignment 1 was made, nor at any time, had access to said vouchers so kept by said Edmonds In said safe claimed by him: and respondent has not the combination of the lock of the safe and never had It.
