Mr. Jathes Pryor, the manager of the banii w^s WMpioii^ fd> peracti'ttiit^: ddtaallSind ije- fusal. On two former occasions, when the summonses were returnable, the ootqpl&inant' Boaler was apt 1° attendance, having received^ it was stated, & surii of money to abandon the prosecution. The Lord Mavo^ then ordered the Oity solicitor to institute proceed-? ings against j^iim for unl^wfully receiving the iboiieyl bribe in question. However, when the case again iekme. on, Boater was present, and intimated his willingness t^ go on with the case, and that being 80, the City soli- citor arranged that the proceedings against him should be deferred. Mr. Straight, for the defence, said that the company was formal lv incorporated in December> 1874, by a certain number,of persons, fixed by the statute, combining together to subscribe for so many shares. As in May, 1875, no other persona had j^)ine<^ the concern the original list of tnlbscribers, of course, held good. He admitted that Mr. Pryor now held 2500 shares in the bank, and he had naturally a larg«, interest in it.: -Att4 jntirpatiQn'llff Writing giVfch ~fcb the"ltegi8trar~ of' Joint Stock Companies in May, 187>5, that as no allotment "bad !been made the shareholders 'would. continue to be those who had originally signed the articles of associ a- tion. It might have been better to have Repeated the list and added the actual number of shares, but this waa not thought necessary. He was instructed that a legitimate debt was owing by Mr. Pryor to the-complainant in respect of a transac- tion altogether unconnected with the bank, ana that he indiscreetly, but to rid himself of the man's an- noyance, settled with him while these proceeding8 were pending. The company was in so flourishing a state as to be able to declare a dividend of 12 £ per cent- Eventually Mr. Straight admitted that the comply' in respect of the third summons charging them with refusing ts> give the complainant a copy of the regi^er for nine days, had committed a technical breach the law. Sir William Rose accordingly fined the bank X2 for the offence, and IQ3. for each of the nine days during which the refusal continued, but refused costs.
