Trouble Pending For Alamance In
surance and Real Eatate Co.
The Alamance Insurance and
Real Estate Co. of Burliugton has
been cited to appear before Judge
Johnson J. Hayes in Greensboro,
to shour cause why it should not
be declared bankrupt. The hear
ing is set for next Monday.
It will be a great hardship to
the many stockholders, those in
debted to the company and oth
ers, should it be fouud necessary
to rule against the concern.
The real estate concerns of
Burlington have contributed in
large measure to the wonderful
progress the city has made in the
past twenty and more years.
The first of these companies to
be organized was the Piedmont
Trust Co., launched by James
W. Murray. He was in fact the
pioneer, and planned well, but a
tragic death ended his actviities.
Later the Alamance Ins. & R.
E. Co. and the Central Loan
& Trust Co. were organized.
The Piedmont waned and about
two years ago went into the
hands of a receiver.
The Alamance and Central
weut to the rescue aud took up
many of the suourities of the
Piedmont, and in some measure
quieted the panicy feeling created
oy the failure of the Piedmont
But their burden was heavy, for
besides they had put large sums
in developments, which are
usually slow in yielding returns.
The Central succumbed a few
mouths ago. This intensified
the situation with the Alamauce,
which has battled bravely under

The big part these companies
