MR. H. K. SPARK.
A meeting of Mr. SPARKS creditors was held at the Trevelyan Hotel,
Darlington, on Saturday morning.
Mr. Charles F. TAYLOR, of Preston, solicitor to the liquidator of the
Lancashire and Yorkshire Loan and Discount Company, creditors for about £24,000,
submitted to the meeting a special resolution desiring the court to grant the
debtor his discharge.
The majority of the creditors present in person and by proxy being
unfavorable to this resolution, it was withdrawn. Mr. TAYLOR then proposed a
resolution to adjourn the meeting to Preston. This was objected to, on the ground
that Preston was inconvenient to a majority of the creditors.
Mr. TAYLOR’s being “an ordinary resolution,” he was able to carry it by a
majority in value. The meeting stands adjourned to Wednesday, the 15th
November at Preston.
