James ft. Dake Severely Arralgaei
By Bscrc* Cockraa.
Xew York. June 13. —A motion
to set aside orders for the cxami
aatiooof James C. Dak e and Thorn*
as F. Ryan in suits brought by
George P. Butler and Susan K.
Hlms as stockholders in the Ameri
caa Tobacco Company. was argued
before Justice Clarke in the Su
prerae Court today.
The Consolidated Tobacco Com*
paay, Duke, Ryan and others are
defendants in the case. W. Boutke
Cockraa. who appeared for the
plaintiff in the action and opposed
the motion, talked far about three
hoars before a crowded court room.
He asserted that Duke. Ryan aad
other associates made $100,000,000
ia the transaction by which the
Atactic in. the Continental and
other tobacco companies were
merged into the Consolidated.
Delancy Xicoll appeared far the
defendants who wanted the orders
sets aside. He said that ninty-aine
per cent, of the stockholders of the
American and Continental com
pany* had exchanged their stock
for hoods paying eight per ceat
rather than take chances oa the
tobacco trade. Butler, he said, had
parted with r.OOO of his 2,000 shares
of Amencaa Tobacco, aad aow
wants them back oa slfcgrtiimr si
fraud. Mrs. Hlms. who still holda
her 250 shares ia the Atscricaa
Company .wants aa accouatiag rea
dered of the profits of tbeexchaagu
of bonds for stock.
Ia replying. Mr. Cockraa faPrd
those who had engineered the
change of securities conspirators
and pirates said the Consolidated
narrowly escaped being criminal.
He and his associate had consider
ed for a long lime u hcthcr they
woahl be indicted, bat they had
dropped that course and resolved
on the present course He said
there arc only two wavs of procur
ing money —to make it or to take
it—and these defendaxts had taken
it. Turning to Mi. Nicoir.be broke
oat: "The fruits of that fraud ate
one hundrct'. millions, and they are
now in your ban-is. If this be fi
nanciering then there is no differ*
ence between finance and piracy.''

to submit briefs.
