INTERESTING ACTION AT THE LISTOWEL QUARTER SESSIONS. At the Listowel Quarter Sessions, before Mr J J Shaw, Q .C , County Court Judge, a number of interesting actions for the recovery of shares in connection with ,the Newtownsandes Co-operative Society, were heard. The defendants were: —Wm Stack, Mrs M Flaherty, and Laurence Buckley and Edmund Stack.

Mr E J McElligott, B L, (instructed by Mr F Creagh, solr.,) appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr John Condon, solicitor, represented the defendants.

Mr M J Nolan, J P, examined by Mr McElligott , said that in the case of Wm. Stack he was aware that the defendant paid a first call of £6 5s-, which was portion of his shares of £25 in the society. The present action was to recover another sum of  £6-5s—  which, was a subsequent call on the outstanding amount of the shares due to the society. This call was  made at a meeting of the committee of the society held on the 10th August last, at which Mr Stack was present as a member of the committee. At that meeting a resolution was passed, making a call upon those shares, which resolution he read from the minute book. The way in which the amount of the shares was generally paid was by deducting the amount from the milk supply of the shareholders every month. But in consequence of some little friction at the creamery some time-since, Mr Stack left, and sent his milk to another creamery.

Mr Condon: What position did you hold at that meeting?  Witness: I was president or chairman. Do you hold any other position in the society? —I am treasurer. And secretary?—-No; Mr De Lacy is secretary since July. He is manager and secretary now. Were you present at the meeting that was held at which Mr Stack’s shares were allotted? —No. I was away at the time.

 Do you produce any record showing the allotment to Mr Stack?—Yes, the share book. Was the meeting hold on the 8th or 10th Aug. an ordinary committee meeting?—Yes. Do you produce any minute in your books showing the purpose for which this meeting was held? —I think it was an ordinary monthly meeting. Was that the only intimation he got about the necessity for this call?—Mr Stack was present at the meeting himself, and I believe he got more intimation.  Do you produce any minute of a circular directed to Mr Stack, showing that the object of this meeting was to call in shares?—The manager will be able to tell you that. Mr Thomas De Lacy, in reply to Mr McElligott, said he was appointed secretary and manager of the society on the 24th July, 1899. He wrote up the minutes of the 10th August, 1899. Mr. Stack was present at that meeting. Mr McElligott: Did Mr Stack at that meeting make any objection to this call?—No.

Ha he been sending his milk to another creamery since — He was sending  his milk to another creamery before I was appointed.

Did you post a circular similar to that one (producing a circular) to the shareholders of the society?  Mr Condon: No; not that one.

Witness: No that one was sent round by hand. There was another one sent round by post. The application in Mr. Stack’s case, was for £6 5s., and was given to a boy named David Connor who was in the society’s employment to post. It was undoubtedly sent to Stack and those other parties here sued. Mr Creagh, solicitor, also made an application.

 To Mr Condon: The committee he alluded to was the committee of an ordinary meeting. Did they at an ordinary meeting resolve to call shares?—Yes; I think it was an ordinary meeting. How many were at it? Mr McElligott—Eight. Mr Condon: I take it then that it was in accordance with the resolution of this ordinary meeting that this circular was sent out. Are you familiar with the rules of the committee of management —I didn’t study the rules. Mr Condon remarked that there was no general meeting any how since then, and that this call was sprung upon some of them.

David Connor said he was in the employment of the society. He remembered getting some circulars from De Lacy to post. He didn’t know what month it was. He posted all the circulars given to him at the Newtown Post Office. To Mr Condon: He did not recollect posting one to Mr Stack. He checked them with a list De Lacy had in his pocket. Do you swear you posted a notice to Mr Stack? I could not swear-it. To Mr McElligott: He was of opinion that these circulars included one to Mr Stack.

Mr Condon said that these proceedings against Mr. Stack were, to say the least, somewhat peculiar. He was a man who took a very great interest in getting up this creamery. In the beginning it seems to have been going on all right, and was then under the patronage of the parish priest, but unfortunately friction arose , and like a good many local industrial schemes dissension prevailed, and this society has now formed itself into a company of one man. In his various public duties there is no man who has a greater admiration for Mr. Nolan than he had; but in connection with this matter he did not think the position of Mr. Nolan was as honourable one. Mr. Nolan was a man whose public duties, as everybody know, were many and varied, but still he found time to occupy almost all the available positions in this society—for what ends he could not say. At all events, Mr. Stack, who, although he has not so many alphabetical initials to his name as Mr M J Nolan, may be as capable and intelligent a creamery manager, and also the respected parish priest had to be removed, with the result that what was once a flourishing institution has now dwindled down to a position which made it necessary to call in all the outstanding shares. Everybody well knew that this result was due to the course of management adopted by the committee of one. The “call’ that is made here against Mr. Stack has not been made, in a legal way, or in accordance with the conditions of the rules of management. It is true that at an ordinary committee meeting of five or six members a sort  of hole and corner gathering—in a society of over 100 shareholders—this resolution  or “ukase” was-drafted, but the committee had nothing to  do with the finances of the society. The committee mentioned in the rules meant the committee of management, and as this was not a general meeting, the action of the meeting was ultra vires in passing this resolution.

Mr William Stack, cross examined by Mr Condon, said he was one of the subscribers of the society, and a committee man. He continued to send his milk there up to last May; except on another occasion, when some trouble arose, and Mr Nolan acted  as chairman for a couple of months. Mr. Nolan then: became president, but he could not be president. The parish priest has been removed and the institution has dwindled down ever since. He got no notice that there was to be

a meeting for a call for shares on that day; (See paper for more)
