THE EAST MELBOURNE HEBREW CONGREGATION.

A special general meeting of the members of the East Melbourne Hebrew Congregation was held on Sunday afternoon last in the schoolroom at the rear of the Synagogue, Albert-street. There was an exceptionally large attendance, the object of the meeting being to elect three trustees to the vacancies caused by the decease of Messrs. Joseph Cohen and Aaron Waxman, and the resignation of Mr. W. Davis. Mr. J. Levi, the president of the congregation, occupied the chair, and explained the object of the meeting, remarking that as the mortgage of 4,500 pounds on the building would require to be renewed in June next, he had called the meeting that there might be a full number of trustees. Messrs. Mendel Cohen, Philip Perlstein, M.A. Rapken, B. Sniders, B. Marks, B. Rappiport, J.P., and N.D. Herman were nominated. The last two gentleman withdrew their names, and on a ballot being taken the scrutineers, Messrs. A. Loel, N.D. Herman, and A. Harris, declared Messrs. P. Perlstein, M. Cohen, and B. Sniders elected. All the candidates returned thanks. Mr. M.A. Rapken moved the formation of a sinking fund to liquidate the date on the synagogue, promising the sum of 25 pounds to the fund. The motion was carried unanimously. On the motion of Mr. L. Hollander, 20 gentlemen were unanimously elected to act in conjunction with the committee in establishing the sinking fund. They were: - Messrs. B. Sniders, M. Nettleberg, E. Steinfeld, S. de Beer, N.D. Herman, Joseph Levy, J. Kronheimer, A.H. Hyman, B. Marks, A. Kosminsky, B. Allen, L. Hollander, A. Goldberg, L. Zucker, M. Herman, M. Woolf, S. Finkelstein, M. Simmons, J.P., Simon Moss, and L.H. Goldberg. A vote of thanks to the chairman terminated the proceedings.

NORTHCOTE.

COUNCIL - THURSDAY.

Present: Crs. Hastings (chairman), Pearl, Yeomans, Clauscen, Hutton, Munro, Candy, Clapham, McIntosh, Verso, and Dennis.

The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed, and outward correspondence approved.

CORRESPONDENCE.

From Mr. Bade complaining of a cattle fine imposed upon him by the Bench on March 10th, 1890.
Cr. Munro would like a salutary check to be put upon the high-handed proceedings of the Bench.
Crs. Verso and Bastings strongly deprecated the language of Cr. Munro, and considered it was no part of the Council's duties to review the decisions of the Bench, besides the writer had waited nearly twelve months before formulating a complaint. - Referred to the Finance and Legislative Committee.

From the Chief Secretary's Department, asking the Council to strike out the names of all the candidates for the Fire Brigades Board with the exception of one. - Agreed to Cr. Keele's name being retained and the seal of the Council affixed.

From the Northcote Brick Coy, re the construction of certain fixed crossings, and asking the Council to carry out the work and charge them with the cost. - Referred to the Public Works Committee.

From Secretary Clifton Hill and Northcote Tramway Coy., re applying to the Treasury for the 1,100 pound Government money due towards the widening of the bridge.
Cr. Clauscen moved, and Cr. Candy seconded, that the necessary steps be taken. - Carried.

From A. Kosminsky, re filling up a drain in Pender's Grove Estate, and stating that the work is being proceeded with, and also calling the Council's attention to the insanitary state of a drain in Dundas-street. - Referred to the Public Works Committee.
From the same, complaining of the high cost of asphalting as compared with Brunswick and other places.
Cr. Pearl said the writer was a large property owner, and consequently interested. Gladstone Avenue cost 6 pounds 6d., and another street 9s. 6d., whilst similar work had been done in Brunswick for 2s. 6d. Surely the writer had a grievance, especially as the Council were over-riding a resolution passed 18 November, 1887.
Cr. Verso: There is no motion before the chair.
Cr. Pearl: I am aware I am not in order, but others have also spoken.
Cr. Verso: I would like to ask Cr. Pearl if he induced this gentleman to write the letter since he knew so much about it.
On the motion of Cr. Pearl, seconded by Cr. Clapham, it was decided to deal with the letter in the ordinary business.

From Bernard Mark on the same subject, and couched in very pathetic terms. - Referred to ordinary business.

From Mr. Brown, complaining of a nuisance occasioned by the Preston Shire drainage into the Merri Creek.
Cr. Clapham designated it as an abominable nuisance, and an intolerable nuisance which should be at once dealt with. That if the Preston Council continued to treat their communications with contempt, prompt and decisive action should at once be taken to compel them to abate the nuisance.
Cr. Clauscen asked if any reply had been received to their letter to the Preston Council.
The Town Clerk: No answer is to hand as yet.
Cr. Pearl: I live a quarter of a mile away, but owing to the stench arising from this nuisance had often to close every window in the house otherwise he could not exist in the place.
Resolved that the Town Clerk write again in strong terms to the Preston Shire Council, insisting upon the nuisance being abated.

PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE.

The above Committee recommended that the following amount be passed for payment, 31 pounds 3s. 6d. - Carried.
That the tender of W. Sims, for metalling Bridge-street, bulked sum, 286 pounds 15s., be accepted. - Carried.

ORDINARY BUSINESS.

Cr. Clauscen enquired why the water had not been laid on at Arthurton-road, although the Council took action some time ago.
The Chairman could not understand the delay as the Department promised to go on with the work some twelve months ago.
Cr. Clauscen moved that the Chairman and Town Clerk wait upon the Department and ascertain the cause of the delay in reference to this and other streets.
Seconded by Cr. Hutton and carried.
The Engineer stated that the estimated cost of forming, channelling and tar-paving private streets 50 feet wide was 40 pounds 17s. a chain, and that a fair estimate for tar-paving was 7s. 6d. or 8s.
Messrs. Kosminsky's and B. Marks' letters were now considered.
Cr. Pearl said that private street construction was an all important matter, and he maintained that the Council's policy had been determined by their resolution of 1887.
The Chairman and Cr. Clapham contended that Cr. Pearl could not make a speech unless he moved a motion.
Cr. Pearl: I beg to move, -
Cr. Clauscen interjected, "I think the letters are here for discussion."
The Chairman: I am prepared to receive a motion.
Cr. Munro: I move the subject matter be dealt with.
The Chairman: Without a motion we might be here till midnight and be no further advanced.
Cr. Verso: I move the matter be referred to the Public Works Committee.

The following article is from May 18, 1888:

The agreement between the Council and the Tram Syndicate has been finally settled. As a guarantee that the work will be proceeded with in the stipulated time, six months, and finished within eighteen months, the Syndicate has accepted the suggestion of the Council to deposit 1000 pounds in the joint names of the Mayor and a member of the Syndicate, in a bank or other institution as may be mutually agreed upon.
As there appears to be a general wish to know who constitutes the Tram Syndicate, we publish the names of the gentlemen endorsed on the agreement. The list includes several well-known and respected business men of the city. We have no doubt as business men they will carry out their part of the contract in a manner satisfactory to all concerned. The list consists of Messrs. A.D. Hodgson, J. Macmeikan, I. Roff, G.C. Clauscen, I. Barnet, G.O. Ballard, R.W. Best, P. Langwill, B.J. Fink, M.P., D. Clifton, A. Kozminski, J. Holden, J. Grigg, G.D. Langridge, M.P., G. Shaw, F.J. Foley, J.D. Forbes, J.J. Miller, and R. Robb.

By the R.M.S. Massilia Mr. A. Kozminsky, a gentleman well known in mining and commercial circles, arrived here from Melbourne, and is about visiting the various goldfields of the colony, with the view of investing in mining properties. Mr. Kozminsky is evidently of an enterprising disposition, for prior to leaving Melbourne be obtained from the Victorian Railway Department the sole right of advertising in their book time tables. The Argus of the 26th March states: - "The Railway Commissioners have made a new departure with reference to the issue of the book time tables, by which the department will save at least 1,000 pounds per annum. They have let the right of advertising in these timetables to Mr. Kozminsky, who will sell them at 1d. each instead of 2d., the present price, besides giving the public better value. The first issue will appear in September next." It may be added that this should prove a valuable medium of advertising our various railway systems, routes to the goldfields, and resources of the colony, to the many thousands in the other colonies who are likely to reach these shores. Mr. Francis Hart has been appointed agent for advertisements in West Australia.

MELBOURNE JEWISH AID SOCIETY.

The first annual meeting of the members of the Melbourne Jewish Aid Society was held at the Synagogue schoolroom, Bourke-street west, yesterday morning. The president (Mr. P. Blashki) occupied the chair.

ANNUAL REPORT.

The report of the council stated, inter alia, that since the inception of the society the sum of 1,047 pounds 1s. 5d. had been received in subscriptions. It having been ascertained that moneys, which had some years ago been contributed for a purpose similar to that of the society, were lying on trust at one of the Melbourne banks, the council by its endeavours obtained payment of them with accumulated interest, amounting to 28 pounds 7s. 11d. Pursuant to the rule requiring 300 pounds of the society's capital to be set apart and invested as a permanent capital fund, that sum had been invested in the names of the trustees by way of fixed deposit for three years with the Freehold Investment and Banking Company of Australia Limited, carrying interest at the rate of 6 per cent per annum. Of the remaining capital, 200 pounds had in like manner been placed on deposit for one year with the Standard Mutual Building Society at 6 1/2 per cent interest, with 1/2 per cent bonus. Other sums had been placed with the Metropolitan Bank Limited at call, carrying interest. The interest from all such sources, calculated up to the end of June last, amounted to 39 pounds 19s. 8d. Sixty-nine loans had been granted, of an aggregate amount of 753 pounds. All such loans but one were secured by guarantees. The necessary weekly instalments in repayment had, in nearly every instance, been paid with satisfactory regularity by the various borrowers. The council expressed its great satisfaction at what might just likely be regarded as the eminent success which had attended the operations of the society during the first year of its existence, and congratulated the members upon the highly satisfactory result of their efforts and liberality in a most praise-worthy cause, namely, affording monetary aid and relief in a manner not calculated to pauperise those in need of assistance, but tending to preserve or engender feelings of manhood and self-respect, and to promote habits of industry and thrift amongst them.
The report was adopted on the motion of the president, seconded by Mr. Woolf Davis.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS.

The following gentlemen were appointed to hold office during the year: - Messrs. P. Blashki (president), A. Kozminsky (treasurer), R. Moss, W. Davies, B. Marks, A. Smith, N. Nettleberg, E.L. Zoz, M.L.A., A. Loel (members of the council), L. Goldberg (hon. sec.), N. Levinson (hon. solicitor), E. Benjamin, and J. Marks (auditors).

SPECIAL MEETING.

At a special meeting which was subsequently held several alterations in the rules of the society were agreed to.

LAW REPORT.
SUPREME COURT.

BANCO COURT.
(Before their Honours the Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Holroyd, and Mr. Justice Hood.)

FRIDAY, MARCH 7.
RE THE MELBOURNE STOCK EXCHANGE AGENCY, &c., COMPANY EX-PARTE KOZMINSKY.

This was an appeal against an order of Mr. Justice Williams dismissing a summons by Abraham Kozminsky, of Queen-street, to be reinstated on the register of members of the company in respect of 200 shares, of which he claimed to be the owner and had been the registered proprietor, and which were forfeited for non-payment of a call. It was contended for Mr. Kozminsky that notice of the call was not properly given, and that the shares were therefore illegally forfeited. The call was made on the 11th October, 1888 and the notice given of it was as follows: -
"Melbourne Stock Exchange Agency and Banking Corporation Limited. - Notice is hereby given that a call of 2s. 6d. per share has been made, payable on the 5th day of November, 1888, at the registered office of the company, 44, Collins-street west, Melbourne. J.B. Joske, manager." It was contended that this notice was informal, inasmuch as it did not state the person to whom the call was payable as required by the rules. The rules relating to the payment of calls were 14 and 15. Rule 14 was as follows: -
"All moneys payable by any member of the company shall be payable at the registered office of the company or at such other place or places, and to such person or persons, as the directors may appoint."
Rule 15 provided that "the directors may from time to time make such calls upon the members in respect of moneys unpaid on their shares as they may think fit, provided that no such call shall exceed the sum of 2s. 6d. per share, and that no call shall be made if an interval of three months has not elapsed since the date of making any previous call, and each member shall be liable to pay the amount of calls so made to the persons and at the times and places appointed by the directors, which said persons, times, and places shall be specified in the notices of such calls respectively." It was contended for the applicant that as the notice of the call did not state the person to whom it was to be paid it was informal, and the shares were illegally forfeited. The company is now being wound up voluntarily, and a dividend will be payable to the shareholders.
It was submitted for the liquidators that the notice of the call was good, as where the money was payable at the registered office of the company it was unnecessary to state the person in whom it was to be paid. Mr. Justice Williams decided that the notice of the call was sufficient, and against this Mr. Kozminsky appealed.
Mr. Isaacs appeared for the appellent; Dr. Madden and Mr. Topp for the company.
The CHIEF JUSTICE said that the Court was of opinion that the learned judge from whom the appeal was brought was right, and that the articles of association made payment of moneys payable by members of the company at the registered office of the company to any person allowed to be there to receive payment on behalf of the company a valid payment. Clause 15 was somewhat obscure where it referred to the persons and the times and places appointed by the directors, which said persons, times, and places should be specified in the notices of such calls respectively. But the Court thought that that referred only to other places than the registered office where such other place was appointed as that for the payment of calls. The appeal would be dismissed with costs.
Appeal dismissed with costs.

The dissolution of Mr. Andrew Lyell and Mr. Abraham Kozminsky's partnership:

MR. A. LYELL'S ESTATE.
PROCEEDINGS IN THE INSOLVENCY COURT.

The case of Mr. Andrew Lyell, of 87 Queen-street, Melbourne, accountant, in which a petition has been lodged for liquidation of the petitioner's affairs by arrangement, was before the Insolvency Court yesterday, before his Honour Judge Molesworth. The case came on for the settlement of certain points which the chief clerk had raised for decision by the Court, previous to the registration of a resolution passed at a meeting of creditors held on the 2nd inst. The creditors presents, as represented by proxy, at the meeting were:
- Mr. J.M.A. Howden (in the chair), Oriental Bank Corporation, Mercantile Finance Company, Messrs. Mark Moss, H.T. Pinsted, A. Kosminsky, James Gallagher, Pavey, Wilson, and Cohen, and Janet Lyell. The resolution agreed to was as follows: -
"1. That the affairs of Andrew Lyell shall be liquidated by arrangement and not in insolvency. 2. That Thomas Ellison, of Melbourne, manager, be, and he is hereby appointed, trustee. 3.
That Mr. Montagu Lohun, solicitor, be entrusted with the registration of this resolution."

Attached to the resolution was the following memorandum by the Chief Clerk: -
"This resolution is presented to me on Monday, the 6th October, 1890, for registration. I require proof (1) of the summoning of the meeting; (2) of the election of the chairman; and (3) that the debtor was present at the meeting."

"(Signed) GEO. BELL Oct. 6, 1890."

"The requirements above specified having been satisfied, I still require to be satisfied that the statutory number of creditors in number and value have agreed to the resolution, and I am unable to ascertain this from the statement, because a liability thereon appearing is said to be "continuent," and is not stated at any definite amount. This requirement was raised by me, and discussed with Mr. Cohen on Monday last, when the resolution was first presented. Mr. Cohen asked me to submit the matter to his Honour the Judge, under rule 18, and also to submit his contention that I ought to calculate the value of the debts after deducting the value of the securities by creditors, and not upon the gross debts appearing in the statement, as I think is required by section 153, subsection 26."

"(Signed) GEO. BELL Oct. 8, 1890."

Mr. Cohen, who appeared for the trustee and the debtor, argued that the contingent liability mentioned in the debtor's statement ought to be disregarded in the taking of a vote. A contingent debt, for any debt the value of which had not been ascertained, did not give the right to vote. With regard to the other point raised, the contention of the chief clerk was altogether opposed to what had hitherto been the practice. It was that where a secured creditor proved his debt he could only vote for the balance after deducting the value of the security held by him, but that where there was no proof the voting should be for the full amount of the debt. There would be a palpable inconsistency in adopting such a procedure, and he (Mr. Cohen) urged that in the absence of proof of a secured debt the value of the security as appearing in the debtor's statement should be deducted from the full debt, so as to ascertain the voting power of the creditor.
His Honour reserved his decision on the two points raised.
The statement which has been filed by the debtor gives the following particulars as to his affairs: -

The liabilities are stated to be 19,651 pounds, of which 6,280 pounds are due to unsecured creditors, and 13,371 pounds to secured creditors. The assets are 10,605 pounds, including real property, 9,960 pounds, and personal property held as security 643 pounds. The deficiency is, therefore, 9,046 pounds.

The following are the secured creditors: -

J.H. Maddock, 4,462 pounds, balance of purchase money for land; security, second mortgage on land at Preston, Land Mortgage Bank, 3,223 pounds, mortgage loan and interest; secured by first mortgage on land at Preston, New Oriental Bank, 3,265 pounds, money lent; secured by mortgage on land at Preston; 100 shares in the Australian Freehold Bank, and 160 shares in the Perkins Brewery Co. Limited, William Hawkins, Preston 1,825 pounds, balance of purchase money on land; secured by mortgage on freehold land at Preston, Mark Moss, 586 pounds, money lent; secured by 100 shares in the Squatting Investment Co., 208 shares in George and George Limited, 200 shares in the Melbourne and Suburban Agency Co. Limited, and 400 shares in the Stock Exchange Co., H.T. Plaisted, Melbourne, 307 pounds; balance of purchase money on land, secured by second mortgage on freehold land at Preston. Total, 13, 371 pounds 3s. 6d. Total value of securities, 17,016 pounds.

Contingent Liability - Thomas Alston, as landlord of premises rented under agreement dated 16th October, 1888, till 1st May, 1892, at 480 pounds per annum, no amount stated.

The unsecured creditors are - Mercantile Finance Trustees Company, 3,003 pounds, moneys lent in 1887 and 1888, J.M.A. Howden, Melbourne, 1,475 pounds, moneys lent in 1887 and 1888; Janet Lyell, East Melbourne, 1,183 pounds, moneys lent in July, 1888; Abraham Kozminsky, 443 pounds, balance of capital owing to him in respect of a partnership dissolved; James Gallagher, 133 pounds, for share of contribution for the purchase of land on joint account; Pavey, Wilson, and Co., 40 pounds, law costs; total, 6,280 pounds.
The real property is in land held jointly with James Gallagher, 13 acres, Bell-street, Preston; five acres Murray road, Preston; four shops, High-street, Preston, all freehold, 15,765 pounds. This is mortgaged for 12,784 pounds. The value of petitioner's interest if sold is set down as nil. There are no debts due to petitioner except as partner in the estate of A. Lyell and Co.
The losses sustained during the last two years are given as follows: - In connection with land and share transactions (cash paid), 3,541 pounds; further losses on land and shares now included in liabilities, 3,071 pounds; in connection with the opening and closing agency in London, 370 pounds; in connection with opening branch in Sydney (to date), 269 pounds; total, 7,253 pounds.
The debtor states the expenses of his partnership business, including partner's salary, to be 180 pounds per month, and his household expenses to be 50 pounds per month.
