BANKRUPTCY COURT. On Tuesday, Edward Evans, collier, Park Road, Rhosymedre, Ruabon, came up for his public examination, being represented by Mr. R. W. Glascodine. His liabilities were estima- ted at 9127 lis. 3d., and his assets at £ 14 10s., leaving a deficiency of £ 113 Is. 3d. AH the debts appeared to be in respect of provisions, clothes, &c., and the debtor states that he had no knowledge of these debts until after the recent death of his wife, whpn he discovered numerous bills and County Court summonses in the house. The examination was declared closed. Thomas Gittins, malster and corn dealer, West Felton, Shropshire, publicly examined, estimated his gross liabilities at EI,248 5s. 9d.; expected to rank, £1,209 Os. 7d assets, JE398 Os. 9d. deficiency, £810 19s. lOd. He alleged as the causes of his failure too little capital to work the business, so had to buy on credit; loss in malbkiln, floor ivingway; books not being kept quite correctly.' He started business in 1891 with a capital of about £ 200. He took over the business from his brother, David Gittins. It was carried on at Weirbrook, West Felton. In the autumn of 1896, he took into partnership Charles Gittins, but this part- nership, which only applied to the corn trade, existed until March, 1897, only. Charles Git- tins was no relative. The debtor was not brought up as a maltster, but as a farmer. He had had dealings with his father, supplying him with cake, and his father sending him barley; but he had no accounts anywhere showing these transactions. His father kept the account of their dealings. He was insolvent to the extent of nearly £ 500 about two years ago, but nonfe of his creditors bad been pressing him until recently. He thought his book debts would realise more than he had estimated them at, and that the estate generally would turn out more favourable than represented in the state- ment of accounts. The examination was de- clared closed.
