"INSIDE INFORMATION" CLIENT SAYS WAS FALSE Two Lawyers Sued by Legatee of Eugene Zeile -In a complaint filed in San Francisco yesterday by John 3acob Fargue, one of the legatees under the will of Eugene Zeile, who -died November 22 # 1907,- At torneys Harrison S. Robinson and E. 'C. Robinson'of Oakland are accused of having- defrauded and cheated the plaintiff out of part of his Inheritance. The will bequeathed to Fargrue $5,000. He states that 11. S. Robinson told. him he had certain ''inside information" which would enable Far«rue to get im' mediate 'possession of his legacy; but that without this information it was extremely doubtful if the estate would ever get anything. , Fargue asserts in his complaint that he was induced by these* representa tions to assign to H. S. Robinson- a third of the $5,000 as. compensation for collecting the legacy. H. S. Robinson afterward assigned this third ofi \he $5,000 to E. C. Robinson, his partner. In pursuance .of . t"he assignment* and agreement the: Robinsons February 10. 1310. were allowed by the probate court $1,707.23. Fargue sues them for, this sum, charging .that "Robinson's representa tions about "inside information" were fraudulent' and untrue and were made with" the intent to cheat him.

F. of L. com mittee will hold its first meeting here." At" the meeting of the joint commit tee the attention of the members com posing it will 'be called to the English labor exchanges and what they do for the unemployed. The plan of assisting the unemployed; and . migratory, or casual labor, as it is called in that country, includes a central clearing house for^ the whole territory with 1$ district clearing houses in as many dis tricts. In each of these districts there are a number of exchanges, the number being graduated •by the size of the population. The method of assisting is thus explained: . "Suppose a man has registered at an exchange at Sheffield and wants work mv pome other Yorkshire town; The Sheffield exchange notifies the clearing house of the / district of the.' man's wants, as the clearing house has al ready been notified of all vacant jobs in the district. The man calls at the Sheffield exchange and is interviewed by the superintendent. If- there-is any vacancy and he^is suitable, but has no money to pay his fare to the place where the work is, the superintendent makes the necessary advance, or loan, and sends him off. "Besides . this . use, the labor .ex changes will subserve other purposes. First, by their . . means Uhe board of trade .will be able to 'take what may be called a census of. the unemployed. Second, the system is essential to the satisfactory working of the 1 great scheme of insurance against unemploy ment which, the government has prom ised. No such scheme of insurance can be worked- except In conjunction .with some apparatus for finding work and testing willingness to work. The labor exchanges will supply, this want. -Third, the labor, exchanges will gradually effect the (Jecasualization of casual labor. Both the .majority and ; the minority reports, of the recent royal ! Gossip of Railwaymen j THE xS3 bills - affecting railways, which were pending before con gress February 21,* have been listed in; a digest published by the Railway Business association. The substance of each, bill Is described in one or two sentences, except that the comprehen sive administration bill to amend the interstate commerce law and. a few others" are set forth at some greater length-- „ \u0084 -\u25a0 In the preface to the digest the asso ciation appeals vto the congressional committees to avail themselves <of the knowledge and experience', of railway men on the technical questions at issue before passing bills, which ~ may ' seri ously impair railway prosperity. ; The wide disparity, of opinion "among members of congress, as shown by ' th 6 great variety; of bills -introduced, gives 'evidence that the people at- large are also perplexed; and. therefore, the only judicious ; course is: to proceed with great . caution. - . \u25a0 • •"\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0.•\u25a0" L.

FORTY-ONE CENTS FOR EACH DOLLAR Receiver of the California Safe Deposit and Trust Company Files Annual Report r.'A 1 - dividend ol 41 cents on the dollar Is what Receiver Le Breton estimates he will be able to- pay the depositors of the insolvent California safe de posit and trust company if the affair 3 of *the bank are' left % in his manage ment.. In his. report for the year 1909,* filed yesterday. Le Breton states that this estimate* is based upon the valua tion of the assets today. He adds: '"This receiver can not state, and no onecan state, what percentage i\ill be realized by the depositors. Naturally, with time and careful management, the valuations should increase." . ;Le Breton's valuation of the re sources of the insolvent bank as of December 31, MO9, gives a" total of J4.149.684, against which there are pos sible - offsets of $624,167 on -trust and other funds, leaving 13,525,517 for dis tribution, or approximately 4"1 cents on the dollar. \u25a0 v " On the other hand, the book-valua tion of these resources — that is, the valuations placed -on #hem - by the wreckers of the bank — totals $12.141. 997. ' The differences inthe two valua tions are shown by the following fig ures. Le -Breton's estimates being in parenthesis: : Bank , premises, * 1950,000 ($600,000^ '.bank- |76, 239 ($1,000) ; investments. $5,967,106 (sl. 152,531):. loans, $3,512,997. ($1,143,376). In. the hands of the receiver are 41.500 shares of Western Pacific stock, which he values at $30 a share. During 1909 the receipts of the re ceiver totaled $422,544. of which $259. 466 represents money repaid on loans, and the ' disbursements aggregated $192,991.50, of which $61,758 was paid on order of the court upon preferred claims. The sums paid to the receiver and to his attorneys, De Laveaga & Magee, for their compensation were as follows: To the receiver for compensation to December 31. 190S, $9,000: drawn by re ceiver on account of compensation for $1909. $3,000: paid to attorneys for serv ices to December 31," 1908, $26,340; paid to attorneys on account of compensa tion for 1909, $3,050. The amount of cash now on hand is stated by the receiver to be $944,527.06. and since January 25, 1909, he has stood ready to pay a 10 per cent dividend to depositors, but has been prevented because of the rehabilitation scheme. The net monthly cost of the receiver ship, apart from the compensation of the receiver and his attorneys, is $387. Four clerks are employed.
