FROST TROLLEY LINE Bondholder Beaubien Files a Suit in Which He Alleges Fi nancial Jugglery. ATTACK MADE ON THE TRUSTEE Allegation That That the Latter Has Interests Not Desirable. Also That Frost, the Organizer of the Enterprise, Has Been Allowed. Too Much Liberty of Action. Milwaukee, Nov. 7.—Suit to oust the Western Trust and Savings Bank, of Chicago, as trustee of the $10,000,000 bond issue of the Chicago and Milwau kee Electric Railroad company Las been begun by Alexander Beaubien, a bondholder, who makes sensational charges concerning President A.

Says There Was “Juggling.” To uphold his claim of the unfitness of the present trustees, Beaubien’s complaint recites a long list of allega tions citing specific instances of irregu larity and juggling of the bonds of the road, detrimental to the financial inter ests of the bondholders. The nub of the suit is to establish which lias pri ority rights to the rents and profits of the railroads—the creditors-at-large or the bondholders, not all of whom are interested in the present suit because, the plaintiff alleges, they are deriving advantages not shared by Beaubien and his fellow-dissenters.

Gave Frost Too Free Rein. The plaintiff insists that the defend ants have not complied with the laws of Wisconsin, and that the receivers’ Certificates issued on federal court order for the purpose of completing the road put a cloud on the bonds, greatly damaging their value.

Frost; that the defend ants gave him $9,700,000 in bonds, part of Which were in escrow, without get ting anything to show for the bonds, which was a violation of law, he says.

A member of the Players’ club whose simple delight in life is collecting old blue china returned the other day from England and as usual after such a trip had some new blue treasure got on one of his customary off the beat en path tramps. He showed it freely, talked about it eloquently, but always when asked where he found it evaded answering. Finally one who had noted several such evasions said to him: “You’ve reached the very worst stage of the collector’s mania. You refuse to tell the place of your treasure house for fear of rival looters.” “You are wrong as to my motive, but right as to the fact that I won’t tell. I can’t, but I’ll write the name for you.” Laboriously he wrote on a card this fearsome thing: “Mynyddyslwyn.” As his questioner stared with startled eyes at the nerve shattering word the collector explained that it was the true and lawful name of a parish in Mon mouthshire. near Pontvpool, England. uji —=P| m where the joor Opens m | 11 constantly You can quickly heat and keep cozy the draughty hall or cold room — * gno matter what the weather conditions are —and il you only knew how much real comfort you can have from a PERFECTION Oil Heater B (Equipped with Smokeless Device) one another hour.

A tale of a native “boy” from “Con fess-ions of a Beachcomber:” “A boy accustomed to see his master, the owner of a station, jump his horse over the gate instead of stopping to open it, tried to follow. The horse cantered up grandly, seemed to gather himself for the jump and balked. The boy shot out of the saddle and over the gate. As he picked himself up and shook the dust from his clothes he glared back at the horse, saying: ‘You blurry liar!’” Rainbows.
