  "On all the papers upon which it was granted, and on motion of Charles F. A. Young, attorney for the defendant, it is 
  "Ordered that the warrant of attachment granted by me against the property of the above named, the Standard Bottle and Glass Company, on the 29th day of March, 1901, be vacated and it is
"Further ordered that the sheriff of the county of Monroe release from the attachment all property remaining in his hands belonging to the defendant, and pay to the defendant any and all proceeds of sales and moneys by him collected by virtue of said attachment."
  The above order was granted Tuesday by Justice J. F. Mareau, of New York, in the action entitled William F. Flamm against the Standard Bottle and Glass Company, of this city, and thereby hangs an interesting tale.
A few days ago Sheriff Ford levied upon the property of the company mentioned which has a plant in Plymouth avenue just above the Western New York & Pennsylvania Bridge. The levy was made by virtue of an attachment in the action named. It caused considerable surprise among those acquainted with the business and some of the creditors became uneasy at the sensational story which appeared in one of the afternoon papers as a result of the levy. A motion was promptly made to have the attachment vacated, and it was granted at once. Late yesterday afternoon the order was served on Sheriff Ford, and he turned over to the company a large quantity of property he had taken from the office, and nearly $5,000 in money which was in the bank at the time of the levy.
The cause of this trouble dates back some little time. A man by the name of Conrad L. Meyer was employed in New York city as the New York agent of the bottle works. As one of the results of his employment he made a claim against the company for $483.13, which he asserts is due him on account of earned commissions. The indebtedness the company has at all times denied, as is claimed, declaring that there are a number of offsets thereto. Several demands have been mad by attorneys of New York for this alleged debt, and C. F. A. Young, the company attorney, says they have all been returned with a refusal to pay on the ground that there is no indebtedness.
  For some time the company has been figuring on removing its works, but not its offices, to Allentown, Pa., where it would be nearer the material needed in the business, as well as being closer to the great market centers. This furnished the basis for a request for a wits of attachment. Affidavits were procured setting forth the fact of the intended removal and in the ?rayey for the attachment it was stated that such removal outside the state would result in defrauding the creditors.
 In the meantime the claim of Mr. Meyers had been assigned to William F. Flamm and the attachment was secured by him instead of the original claimant. This instrument was placed in the hands of the sheriff and the levy was made. A good deal of property was secured, and the works of the company was stopped until the matter could be settled. In the course of a conversation on the subject yesterday Attorney Young said:
  "It was an easy matter to have the attachment set aside when we get a ????? in the meantime the company has been subject to a great deal of annoyance. In the first place many of the creditors became alarmed when they saw the sensational story concerning the levy, and for a story they did not know but what the company was on the verge of dissolution, when this was very far from true. then it was necessary to shut down the works when the matter was being adjusted, and in the meantime, under contract with men employed, it was equally necessary to pay them the same as if they were working.
  "But this will not be an entire dead loss. In order to obtain the attachment it was necessary for the plaintiff to put up a bond. In this instance it is for the sum of $250, and was given by the American Surety Company. We have been damaged in reality more than this will pay for, but it will help considerably when it is turned over to us, as it will be in a short time.
