Henry C Hodges of Mansfield, register of bankruptcy call to order at 10 am for the benefit of those who had not been present at last meeting. He stated the meeting was called to effect settlement between the endorsed and unendorsed creditors by division of estates of Mr. Sexton and McDonald and Co., was understood that acceptance by Sexton’s Men had not been completed and the question therefore was what to do. Mr. FL Baldwin of Massillon, who represented as attorney 175000, said that since the last meeting, an renewed effort had been made to get the endorsement of creditors to accept the offer of 50% made by Mr. Sexton, that Farmers Bank of Canton 7000 still stood out and that also Rollston National Bank of Pittsburgh 4000. A refusal he had also been met from Mansfield banking Co. 150000 and Savings bank 10000. He hoped and thought it would accept. But even if they did not, he was confident 275000 of endorsed paper that had been signed would be willing to take new notes on Sexton’s for the 50%, McDonald and Co. and Sexton estates would be sold and settled either by bankruptcy or state court and Sexton representative could rescue his dividends and outstanding creditors and the proper dividend on their claims out of the Sexton estate and those out standing creditors that felt that they were entitled to a further dividend of the firm of the estate, they could at least make the effort to get it. When litigation delaying that taxation unquestionably ensue, He did not believe the compromise should be abandoned and in all probably 275000 of endorsed notes would go to the Sexton’s for which Maj. McKinley was the proper person to act. Mr. Conger nominated John H Kauke, Wm McKinley estates as assignees of the estate in court of bankruptcy. The names of the creditors were called and the vote resulted in the unanimous election of the nominees. The registrar than announced that this was all that could be done at this time, meeting stating the assignees chosen would be legally qualified by him in due time. The court adjourned, then an unofficial meeting was held.
