A TREHARRIS BANKRUPT. At the Merthyr Bankruptcy Court on Wednasday, before Mr. Registrar Lewis, Thos. Watkin Thomas, Thornwood-place, Trehaaris. came up for examina- tion before Mr. W. L. Daniel, the Official Receiver. This debtor alleged the cause of failure to be Losses on bad debts and contracts and keen competition." In this case the debtor, who went away prior to the receiving order being made returned recently, and had filed a statement of his affairs. The receiving order was made on a creditors petition. It appears that he commenced business in February, 1892, with a* capital of £52. The only books he kept were a ledger and a day book, showing accounts with his debtors. His gross liabilities were set down as £1,025 5s. 10d., and they were estimated to produce £ 464 5s. 7d., but the official receiver felt sure that this could never be realised.âMr. W. W. Meredith appeared for the petitioning creditors. A few days before his petition was filed debtor absconded, and he took with him a sum of L4 2s. 6d. He returned early in December. His liabilities were £ 852, and his assets amounted to £ 393 9s. The official receiver stated that the debtor had greatly over-estimated debts due to him. They all knew Treharris was the worst place for collecting debts in the district. He had sent out 280 applications for the payment of the money due to this man, and had only received JE5. The examina- tion was adjourned. THE MERTHYR G.P.O. STAFF. Last Thursday night the Merthyr Post Office Staff sat down for their annual repast at the Globe Inn, where an excellent table was spread by the hostess, Mrs. |Williams. In addition to the Merthyr staff, about a dozen of their fellow-employees from Dowlais, Troedyrhiw, Aberdare, and Mountain Ash, paid a visit and joined at the feast. After the tables were cleared, Mr. E. Stockwell, clerk, was voted to the chair, and presided over a most enjoyable meeting, which consisted of toasts, recitations, and songs.
