New York, May 2:—Revolting utockholders of the Vulcan Detinning Company yesterday held one oi the longest annual meetings on record Jn an effort to oust the present man agement. The meeting, which began at 2 p. m., was In progress close to mid night when the proxies and ballots were still being counted and the re sult still in doubt. The result will be announced today. John Muir & Company, the well known Stock Exchange firm, headed the insurgent shareholders and placed in nomination for directors, Gardiner S. Dresser, John Kidert, Richard Lindner, George A. Muir, Vincent S. Mulford, Lester J. Saul and Robert L. Worsing. Opposed to this ticket was that representing the present manage ment and consisting of li. E. Spiegel berg, J. H. Prall, Benjamin Nicol, George F. Eldrldge, J. W. Buttfleld, Raymond Tucker. Tucker was nom inated to succeed S. J. Fîloomingdaie. The revolting shareholders started to heckle the present management Immediately after the conclusion of the formal opening of the meeting. W. L. Ball, counsel for John Muir & Co., and two other stockholders asked that two men be appointed to watch the counting of the proxies and votes, both sides claiming cer tain stockholders as their followers. Ε. E. Spiegelberg, president of the company, proposed that the meeting bo adjourned until the proxies had been counted. He stated it would take a long time, whereupon Herbert A. Craft, a stockholder, remarked: "Don't adjourn to a glnmill. We might not get back for two hours. I've got two families and I'd like to get home to one of them." William J. Buttfleld, a director of the company and member of the New York Stock Exchange, took up the cudgels for the present management, and replied to the "attack," as he called it, made by John Muir & Co. and the charges made recently in a circular issued by that Arm. He said that the claim of Adolph Kern, former general manager, for 10 per cent, of the judgment received from the American Can Company would be contested, and would not be paid, although a contract had been made with Kern. Benjamin Nicol, a director, In an •wer to the request for an explana tion of the doubling of directors' fees from $10 to $20 a meeting, said he believed that the legislation on one side and stockholders on the other he considered a director's ser Yices worth $20. There was a considerable stir among the stockholders when W. L. Ball, counsel for the revolting share holder», took up the side of the ln eurgent·. He drew considerable ap plause when he asked what secrets the director* had that should be withheld from the stockholders. Buttfleld said that extractions made secretly from the company's minutes of Charles P. Hull, officer and director, and given to John Muir & Co., were "extractions of the confi dences of the directors." Ball appealed to the stockholders asking them If they wanted directors who concealed things from them, and the shaking of their heads Indicated that those present did not.
