BOARD OF TRADE AND A SWANSEA I FIRM. I In Chancery Division Saturday Justice Warrington. on the application of the Board of Trade, under "The Trading with the Enemy Acts, 1914," appointed Sir Wm. 11. Peat, controller of Hugh Stinnes, Ltd., coal exporters, of Swansea and elsewhere. Mr. Cartmell, for tho Board of Trade, said there was reason to think that an offence under the Acts might be com- mitted by the company. The company was incorporated in 1902 with a capital of £ 25,000. All the shares were practically held by Hugh Stinnes. One was held by a Mr. Thomas, and one by a Mr. Ferguson. The directors were those gentlemen and a Mr. Shaw, who never held more than a share, which he got from Stinnes. Stinnes had always been in Germany and was the principal. There was money in hand ci pay English creditors, a number of con- tracts having been entered into with English collieries. Mr. Wilson, for the company, eaid he did not resist the application. When the war broke out the company owed various English creditors C72,000 for coal brought from the Tyne, Bristol, and the litimber. Those creditors formed a committee, and appointed as chairman LIr. Jackson, solici- tor, Hull, who had been endeavouring to collect the money for the purpose of mfet- ing the English claims, and he had got in his hands £ 23,000, which they wanted to disburse. That money was on the point j I of being distributed, and the creditors do-j sired that the distribution might not be interfered with. His Lordship, in making the appoint- ment of controller, said Sir William Pea-t could discuss with Mr. Jackson the qnaa- tion of paying the creditors. r;fj- -mm. ?-   _?.L.?. ?'"
