looHn J * ^naoUdtted Company, on
rtft*S through his accounts, bright
t??,r ^h ltc c,aim* Dp. Bailey owed
n~ 5? ,lc th,s b,uit *?b pendin
l-. b. Court attacking the Company on
various grounds, suing for salnVv, com"
missions charging violation of law in its
oipuiuaton and conduct, insolvency, and
as^ng tor a receiver. This suit ???' com
,nv.Mlti.U-S- Circuit Court for
o grant any orders without notice to de
enUawt. upon service being made to the
UMnnany, it appeared, and a dav was
sought to be fixed for the hearing. Before
that day arrived, ihe plaintiffs dismissed
their case,and went without notice before
a County Jndge who was temporarily hold
n?K court lor tho circuit in which the
Company Is located, and got from him an
order appointing Bailey Receiver upon a
very small l?ond. The Company immedi?
ately went before the judge of the circuit
who suspended so much of the order as
gave Dr. Bailey possession, requiring the
Company to gh-o bond, and make its show?
ing within twenty days. Before the end
?T this twenty itoy?. Dr. Bailey went with
the same bill with some fritting additions
KgJiuiore the circuit judge, ami asked the
same relief. This tho eircnit judge (Kelly)
refused, as be subsequently stateuN l>c
cansi? of the pending cause and the ordet
which W9M in full force, but. he endorsed
upon the baclc of it simply the word "Re?
fused." (Under the Virginia statute,
Bg-where a Circuit .Judge refuses mi injunc?
tion, the petitioner may go to the nearest
Judge of the Court of Appeals, und he bus
power to grant the injunction order.
Whether he, has power to appoint a re?
ceiver is an unsettled question, oil which
the Court is divided.) Dr. Bailey, on the
same day that Judge Kelley refused, went
before Judge Richardson of the Court of
Appeals,'who granted an injunction and
appointed Dr. Bailey receiver again. From
this order the Company took an appeal.
ByCaml. on bearing it, the Appeal-Court of
Virginia, declared that Richardson's order
Was invalid, and the decision distinctly
decides that any appointment of receiver
was improper. It is claimed that the
Appeal Court did not in words vacate the
first order of theCoiiuS* Judge to which 1 j
Invo alluded, and that it is still in force.
When I read the decree I noticed that
this point was not very dear, and in?
structed my council to call it to the atten?
tion of the Appeal Court. He did so. and
the President of the Court said no order was
nsoessafy, as their order had thoroughly
settled the w'iole question. Matters stood
in this way until some time last summer,
when our counsel; Mr. Avers, informed
me that be hud good reason to believe
that Mr. McGeorge, who had expressed
great dissatisfaction with the management
of the Company, had prepared, in concert
with Dr. Bailey and other*, an amended
bill, upon which they hoped to get a re?
ceivership before the Virginia Courts.
Upon hearing this, I at once reported it
to the Directors, and, as a result, the Cen?
tral Trust Co. applied for a receivership
on an overdue loan lie fore Judge Bond of
Ihn Circuit Court of tho U. S. This ap?
plication w.ib based upon confession of
judgment which I trado on the day before
the application was made to Judge Bond.
Thero was no resolution of the Directors
authorizing me to confess judgment, be?
cause it was imoossible to get a meeting
in time. The Directors subsequently met,
as did the,stockholders.of the Company,
and ratified my action. Mr. McGeorge
then, in conjunction with Dr. Bailey and
some others, came in and answered the
bill making various charges, alleging that
the original order of the County Judge
was still in for<Je, and asking to be made
parties, etc. To this answer Bullitt and
Dixon appeared as counsel. Upon finding]
that they appeared as. counsel, I proposed j
that each piirryshall name two or three!
men, disinterested, and fit for the position
of referee in the cause, and that one of)
them be selected by IheConrt; that.there?
upon the Company will give access to any
of the books and papers of the Company
? to counsel of Mr. McGeorge and the other
parties to the case, put. in its evidonce
without a moment's delay, within thirty
days submit the case to the referee, and,
upon his report coming in, join in a re?
quest to the Circuit Court to hold a special
session, and agree that the decision of
Judge shall be final, each side waving all
techuical objections and defences, As
President of the Company, I have always
felt it my duty to try in every way in my
power to correct any wrong that had been
done, and have repeatedly offered that if
Mr. McGeorge or any one else would give
me any evidence of wrong doing, to pro?
ceed at once in the nanto of the Company
to resist and correct it in the courts if
necessary. 1 have in tho present case in?
structed our counsel to consent to parties
coming in, and directed him to offer no
technical objection to anything they may
want to bring before the Court. 1 am
-still ready to do this, or to modify it in
any reasonable way that Bullit and Dixon
may suggest. Of course, in leaviug mat?
ters, ft) unreservedly to ypu, I do it with
the understanding that you will protect
the rights of the/Company, as wcli as
those parties whom you represent, and act
rather as arbitrator than partisan coun?
