conceals himself that a summons cannot be served upon him; or (d)

will be unavailing; or (e) is converting, or is about to convert,
his property, or a material part thereof, into money or
securities, with intent to defraud his creditors; or (f) has
assigned or disposed of his property or a material part thereof,
or is about to do so, with intent to defraud his creditors; or
