UNIVERSAL TOURIST COMPANY.—Col. Mater and Captain Barrett Leonard were summoned before the magistrate at Bow-street, on Saturday, at the instance of Edwarch Roach, late a clerk in the employ of the Uni- versal Tourist Company (Limited), charging them, that they, being directors of the company did, on the 15th of April last, and subsequent days, unlawfully carry on the business of the company without having any book kept for the registry of shareholders. Mr. Ribton appeared to prosecute Mr. Bridgman for Captain Leonard, and Mr. Parker, solicitor to the company, defended Colonel Mater. The summons was taken out on behalf of several persons who alleged that they had been in the service of the company, and had each of them claims for their salaries. It was proved that the defendants had been seen at the office, and were acting as if they were direc- tors of the company. Application had several times been made for inspection of the registry of shareholders, but it had never been produced. It was now stated to be in the possession of Mr. Styles, the secretary, who had gone over to Paris, and in his absence the book could not be produced. The solicitors for the defendants said they should be able to prove that neither of the defendants were directors, nor even shareholders in the company, and an adjournment was asked for, as sufficient notice had not been given. The case was adjourned for a week.
