Clerks and Officers of Probate Court
Present Him With Handsome Clock.
In appreciation of the courtesies
shown them during his twelve years on
the bench of the probate court, the past
and present attaches of that tribunal
prepared a little surprise for Judge
Livingston W. Cleaveland Saturday
night and in the course of the evening
presented him with a handsome colo
nial Chippendale style, Seth Thomas
clock. The surprise was held at the
residence of Assistant Corporation
Counsel James Kingsley .Blake, who
was a former clerk of the probate court.
Mr. Blake invited the judge to dinner,
and when he arrived he found awaiting
him all the clerks and ex-clerks of the
court during his terms, with the excep
tion, of ex-Clerk A. F. Welles, who is
out of the city.
After the dinner was served the clock
was presented. On it are placed two
silver plates, one bearing the inscrip
tion, "Prcsentei to the Hon. Livingston
W. Cleaveland, Judge of probate court
for the district of New Haven, 1895 to
1907." On the other are the names of
the clerks John C. Gallagher, James
Kingsley Blake, George W, Crawford,
Benjamin I. Spock, J. W. Edgerton,
Clarence 'W. Bronson and Frank C.
Judge Cleaveland's connection, with
the probate court ends on January 9,
when Mayor Studley, who was elected
in November, will assume the office.
MIDDLESEX BANKING COMPANY
Demurrer to Minority Stockholders'
Judge Wheeler of the Superior court,
at its recent term in Middlesex coun
ty, has decided a matter of considera
ble Interest to the legal fraternity of
this state. It will be recalled that
stockholders representing about $100,
000 originally invested in the stock of
the (Middlesex Banking company of
Middletown, Conn., brought an action
last January, In which they asked that
the superior court should appoint ft re
ceiver to take possession of the prop
erty of this corporation for the benefit
of the stockholders, and that the cor
poration should be dissolved. This
proceeding was brought under section
26 of the corporation act. of the state
of Connecticut of 1803. The essential
features of this section are as follows: ,
"Whenever any corporation having a
capital stock has wilfully violated its
charter or' exceeded Its powers, or
whenever there has been any fraud,
collusion or gross mismanagement in
the conduct or control of such corpora
tion, or whenever Its assets are In dan
ger of waste through attachment, liti
gation or otherwise, or such corpora
tion ha 3 abandoned its builness and
has neglected to wind up !':s affairs,
and to distribute its assets within a
reasonable time any stocktviUer
or stockholders owning not less than
one-tenth of Its capital sbvk may
apply to the superior court in the coun
ty wherein such corporation is Jocat-
d for the dissolution of such corpora
tion, and the appointment of receiv
er to wind up its affairs."
The complaining stockholders among
other allegations aver that tho c rpora
tlon has paid no dividends since- lSi'5,
and that the company has lost money
ever since that year, and In support of
this point out the fact that in August
and September, 1905, ;the company t:,ol;
steps to reduce its capital stock by
one-half, in order that the company
might appear to have a surplus of
$237,000, which surplus these stockhold
ers claim, is produced by largely over
estimating the value of the resources
of the company, and that a fair valua
tion of these resources would show that
this surplus do:s not exist. The lengthy
bill of complaint contains many other
charges with reference to the manage
ment of the company, which the offices
of the company have thus far avoided,
answering by means of various dila
tory motions and this recent demurrer
to the complaint. Irt spite of the clear
wording of Section 26, the company
through its attorneys claimed that ap
plication for a receiver could only ts
rhade either by the owners of a ma
jority of the stock of the corporation
or by the building and loan commis
sion'1. With reference to this claim
Judge W'hteler uses the following lan
guage: "The legislature does not appear at
any time to have Intended to entrust
the interests of stockholders of such
corporations entirely to the protection
of public officials, but, on the other
hand, specially provided that holders of
a majority of their stock might in cer
tain contingencies take a.ctlon for the
protection of the Interests of the stock
hold: rs. It cannot bo regarded as al
together Improbable that the legisla
ture might have considered it wise to
make some provision for the protection
of minority stockholders of stock In
such crp'O-ration, or for the protection
of the interests of all the stockholders
at the Instance of the holder of a mi
nority of the stock."
And concludes by saying, "the lan
guage of the act of 1903, and the rea
sons for its enactment, are too clear
to admit of the construction claimed
by the defendant. Demurrer to the
plaintiff's complaint is overruled.
