Richardson, receiver for the American National Bank, yesterday appeared in the Civil District Court, and, in behalf of the bank, filed the following suit: M. Schwarta & Co. ts. their Creditors, No. 50,502. DiTislon E. Civil District Court. "To the Hon. George H. Thesrd, Judge of Division E, ClvU District Court for the Pariah ot Orleans. State of Louisiana: Th rx.riti.,n of onoosltion of Frank L. Richardson, receiver of the American National Bank, a corporation created under the laws of the Luited State, with Us domicile in New Orleans, Mate 01 Louisiana, to the homologation of the respite herein granted by some of the creditors of said M. Schwarta Sc. Co., aa per pro-ces verbal ot William Ardill. notary. herein filed on the 12th day or October, lSi, with respect, represents: "That M. Schwarta & Co.. petitioner In the above entitled proceedings!, are indebted unto tbe American National Bon's of New Orleans on sundry notes and for certain overdrafts in their open account with said bank in the sum of $ 16. exclusive of interest, a per statement of said notes and overdrafts herewith filed. including list of securities pledged ana made part of this opposition, maried Exhibit A. T hat notwithstanding said M. Schwarta at Co. well knew that they were Indebted to said bank in the aforesaid sum of llOo.jfiO 16, they did wllilujy and fraudu lently place said bank on their sworn schedule of liabilities filed by then; herein as being a creditor ca open account for $43.211 85. and on sundry notes for jis25 fs. total $4-i,5 io 7o. that is to say. for $52,224 46 less than real and acknowledged indebtedness to said bank. "Opponent further says that said M. Schwartz Co. did thus willfully and falsely place said American National Bank oa their said schedule of liabilities for the double purpose of fraudulently concealing the amount of their actual indebtedness from their creditors and in order to make their assets appear to exceed tleir liabilities by a very large mini. and thereby induce their said creditors to believe they were solvent when in truth and fact tbe real value of their assets then was. and now is. much less than the total amount of their actual liabilities, and when thev filed their said false schedule of liabilities they were Insolvent and without a legal right to a respite. That in order for a respite to have any legal effect It is necessary that the debtor deposit In the office of the clerk of this honorable court, with his petition therefor, a true and exact schedule of his debts, sworn to by him. and aa the said M. Schwartz A- Co. did not tile with their said petition for a respite herein a true and exact schedule of their debts, duly sworn to. but, on the contrary, did tile as aforesaid a false and fraudulent schedule of their liabilities with their petition for a respite herein, said respite is. for said cause, without any legal force or effect. Wherefore opponent prays that this honorable court will enter a judgment herein in favor of opponent and against M. Schwartz A Co., Moses Schwartz and M. G. Well, refusing to homologate the proees verbal of the creditors' meeting herein: and furthermore decreeing that tha respite granted herein br some of the creditors of said M. Sehwirts k C., Moses Schwartz and M. ti. Weil, be decreed to be without any legal force or effect. "And In the event of the foregoln; rrayer of this proposition be denied but not otherwise, opponent pray th.tte.iid M. Schwartz & Co. be required tr furnisii seenrity. within the legal delays, in aa adequate amount, that property of which they are left iu possession shall not be alienated, or in case it is. that the money arriving rrom the sale or mortgage of the same shall be enipiored In pavin" ratabiv the debts existing at the time of the r-spite. Opponent further pray for costs swm renei in tn( premise. "FRANK N. BUTLER. "Attorney for Petitioner." RECORDER THOHPSO.VS CASE. Among tho arraigned before Jndge Joshna G.
