A WHISKY TRANSACTION. Litigation Growing Out of William T. Colemnn &amp; Co.'a Failure. There was filed in the Superior Court yesterday an agreed statement of facts upon which a controversy exists between Outerbridge Horsey and William T. Coleman &amp; Co. and the assignees of the latter, L. L. Baker and Louis Sloss. It is set forth in tho statement that Horsey is a distiller of whisky in Maryland, and was in the habit of consigning his goods in bulk to Coleman &amp; Co. for sale in lots, and then, instead of waiting for payments, to draw cash from the firm against the consignment. When Coleman &amp; Co. failed in May, 1888, there was an apparent overdraft of Ilorsey's to the amount of $8000, but there should have been sufficient whisky belonging to Horsey in the possession of' Coleman &amp; Co. to pay the dralt and all expenses and leave Horsey a profit on the consignment. However, it is alleged that shortly before the failure Coleman &am...
