Of course, even with a permanent

On the morning of the third day,
MaJ. Gumming began the argument for
the defense, cositendlng that the rela- 1
lionship between the two roads was
not a partnership one, but that of land
lord and tenant. That no receiver
should be appointed unless entire dia

no creditors and no Insolvency.
