THE CASTLE STEEL AND IRONWORKS COMPANY. In the High Court of Justice, Chancery Division, on Tuesday, .before Vice-Chancellor Bacon, Mr. Marten, Q.C., made an ex parte application for the appointment of a receiver and manager of this company, which is in liquidation. He stated that a Mr. Mowatt, who is the holder of £1,500 worth of debentures out of a total issue of £30,000, had instituted an action against the company on his own behalf and on that of all the other debenture holders. On the 16th inst. the company had been ordered to be wound up, but no liquidator or provisional liquidator had been appointed, and the present action was on Tuesday commenced by Mr. Mowatt, whose object was to protect the in- terests of the debenture holders. He produced an affidavit sworn by Mr. Mowatt to the effect that the matter was urgent, and that his action had been entirely prompted by the desire to protect the debenture holders, and also stating the facts of the case. It was desirable that a receiver and manager should at once be appointed, as there was a large amount of property on the company's pre- mises.—An affidavit of fitness having been pro- duced, his lordship appointed Mr, Henry Spain, of 76, Coleman-street, London, receiver and manager, with power to act immediately, and Mr. Mowatt undertook to be answerable for the receipts for a fortnight, or until proper security being given within that period.
