  • 9 Dec 1893, THE LAW COURTS. BEACONSFIELD HEIGHTS ESTATE COMPANY. Application was made to Mr Justice Holroyd in chambers yesterday on behalf of the Commercial Bank of Australia for final judgment in an action against the "Beaconsfield Heights Estate Company Limited to recover £2,554 and interest upon a promissory note made by the defendant company in favour of L. L. Smith and J. H. Webb and endorsed by them to the bank. The defendant asked leave to defend the action. An affidavit was made by William Brisbane acting secretary of the company to the effect that the note sued upon was one of a number given to Messrs Smith and Webb for land purchased from them that in November, 1892, it was agreed that the contract should be cancelled upon the company forfeiting the payments made and giving up the land and the vendors restoring to the company the promissory notes then current and that the deponent was afterwards told by Mr L. L. Smith's solicitor that the bank had promised to give up the note held by it upon the above arrangement being carried out. The land was given back early this year and the company was now without assets of any kind.
    Mr Justice Holroyd held that as the bank received no consideration for the alleged undertaking it was not now estopped from suing on the note. He also overruled an objection that the plaintiff had failed to show that the defendant company was a trading company with power to make negotiable instruments. The Court was entitled to infer from everyday experience that companies formed to buy and sell land were trading companies. It was a trade, and sometimes a very dirty trade, too. As the defendant was not prepared to pay the amount of the claim into court, judgment would be entered for the plaintiff with costs. Mr Vasey appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Cussen for the defendant.67

  • 12 Dec 1895, BEACONSFIELD HEIGHTS ESTATE COMPANY. THE LIST OF CONTRIBUTORS. Mr Justice Williams yesterday delivered a reserved decision on an application made to him on the 21th October last to have the names of certain persons placed on the list of contributones of the Beaconsfield Heights Estate Company, in liquidation. The application was made by Mr Mitchell for the liquidator of the company and it was opposed by Mr H. Barrett, on behalf of A. Asher and E. J. Field, and by Mr Levinson on behalf of W Hider Smith. It appeared that Asher, Field, and Smith were formerly shareholders of the company and their names were still on the share register, and the liquidator therefore desired to have them placed on the list of contributors for calls. The grounds of the opposition to the application were that Messrs L L Smith and J H Webb were the vendors of the property to the company, that Messrs Asher, Field, and W. H. Smith were not able to pay the calls that were made by the company, and that it had formerly been agreed that if they would pay what money they could, their shares should be transferred to the vendors, and they should be freed from the shares. Asher paid £15, Field £18, and Smith £72, and they sent in transfers of their shares in blank to the directors of the company, but the shares were not transferred to Messrs L. L. Smith and J. H. Webb, and their names were left on the register. Two calls were made after they sent in their shares, but they were never asked to pay them, and it was contended that under the circumstances they had
    been freed from the shares, and could not be made contributories. Mr Mitchell stated that the liquidator found the names on the share register and therefore had to apply for them to be placed on the list of contributories. No transfers of the shares had been made to Messrs. L. L. Smith and J. H. Webb, and the directors had no power to accept surrender of the shares. Messrs. Asher, Field, and W Hider Smith were therefore liable for the shares. Mr Justice Williams in giving his decision yesterday, said he found that the directors had no power to make the arrangment to release Messrs. Asher, Field, and W Hider Smith from their liability for calls, but he also found that the company had acquiesced in that arrangement. His decision was there fore in favour of Messrs. Asher, Field, and W Hider Smith. He held that they could not be placed on the list of contributories, and the application was dismissed.69
