MORE MISERY PROBABLE. FRESH TROUBLE FOR THE LIBERATOR VICTIMS. OFFICIAL RECEIVER MUST ENFORCE CLAIMS. The Presa Association says that the misery caused by the failure of the Liberator group of companies is likely to be seriously increased by the decision of the Official Receiver to make an early call on the shareholders of the House and Land Investment Trust. Several shareholder* have appealed to the Official Receiver to omit their names frem the list of contribntories, and various reasons have been given why they should not be called upon to pay this demand. One is that the shares were applied far through the wide oirenlation of lyinc reports and false balance-sheeto, and that the shareholders ought not to be held responsible at any rate beyond the serious losses already, sustained from the deficiency bronght about by the financial methods adopted by Balfonr and his co-workers. In reply te these represent** tions, the Official Receiver has issued the follow. ing circular letter â All persons who were shareholders at th* date of the winding-up order must be included the lit of ?ntributories, but when yon rem. ve a notioe of the call, which will shortly be made on the ewes, you ?h..Id forward an ?ffidait stating exactly of what yo-.= properly oow;o* your mean& and sources of woome, and your inability to py the call in full. This must be sworn befr? justice of the peace or co-& sioner for o&tb. Y Oil should Vr tle .& ti.6 make an offer of compromise, which will be brought before the committee of inspection for their consideration." It is presumed that this means the Official Receiver has no option but to enforoe the oall on all shareholders, no matter what they may have lost in this and other companies of the Balfour group. The effects of the disaster will, therefore, be mr -e severely felt than ever.
