A Cross Bill in Equity.

Issue 9 and Volume 1893 14.

A Cross Bill in Equity. A cross bill in equity was filed in the Circuit Court, Omaha, Monday, by the American Water-works Company of Illinois against the American Water-works Company of New Jersey, the Denver City Water-works Company, E. Hyde Rust, the receiver of the New Jersey Company and other directors and officeis of the different corporations that have become mixed up in the maze of litigation. The bill joins in the prayer for the permanent removal of Receiver Rust of the New Jersey Company, and charges that the incorporation of that company was illegal and the transfer of the property of the Illinois and Denver City companies consolidated was illegal. The further allegation is made that the consolidation was illegal, because no notice was sent to stockholders of the meeting, and that the deal was pushed through by Vennor and Underwood for their own enrichment.
