Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ... Co. 00 C. C. A. 100, 124 Fed. 968. There was, however, as to the securities under consideration, no secrecy which was not inherent in their nature. The public does not know what stocks, bonds, or notes a merchant has, and therefore does not give him credit because of them. There is no evidence that any exhibition of or statement as to these securities was made to anyone by the New York house for the purpose of obtaining credit. Their books, if examined, would have shown what the real dealing between them and the Manchester house was. If there had been no insolvency, and the New York house had withdrawn securities without substituting others, a court of equity would have compelled it to do so, or at least would have enjoined it from making such withdrawals, at the suit of the Manchester house. If, having failed to cover its drafts, the New York house had refused to deliver the securities to the Manchester house, a court of equity would have compelled it to do so. In delivering the securities to the Manchester house October 25, 1907, the New York house acted without the compulsion of a court of equity in strict accordance with the trust it had declared four years before, when entirely solvent. For the first time in that course of dealing there was an expectation that the New York house would not cover its drafts; that the Manchester house would have to pay them and would need to realize upon the securities which the New York house held for its protection. No new right or privilege was then created voidable under the bankrupt act. The delivery of these earmarked securities was in strict pursuance of the agreement made long before on the strength of which the credit was given. Sabin v. Camp (C. C.) 98 Fed. 074, cited with approval more
