BUTCHERS BANKRUPT. Sickness, Bad Trade, and Hot Weather Combine Against Them. This morning the creditors of Frederick Pit- man, of 6, Holmesdale-street, Grangetown, then of 56, Splott-road, Cardiff, and 29, Glamorgan- street, Barry, a journeyman butcher, was held at the Official Receiver's office, Queen- street, Cardiff, this morning. The statement of affairs showed the gross liabilities to be Y,65 lis. 5d., the whole of which would rank for dividend. The assets were esti- mated to produce jE33 17s. 10d., which would leave a deficiency of R31 13s. 7d. The debtor alleged his causes of failure were sickness of himself, wife, and family, and bad stock.-The Official Receiver observed that debtor had no offer to make, and had been adjudged a bankrupt.-No resolution was passed, and the Official Receiver remains trustee. At noon a meeting of the creditors of Robert Blight, butcher, of 10, the Hayes, and No. 10 stall in the Market, Cardiff, was held. In this case the gross liabilities were JB326 lis. 6d., the whole of which would rank for division. The assets were set dgwn at JE54 lis. 3d., the deficiency being JE272 Os. 3d. The debtor alleged as his cause of failure bad trade, sickness, and loss of stock during the hot weather. — The Official Receiver's observations were :—Debtor has no offer to make to his creditors, and has been adjudicated bankrupt on his own appli- cation. He filed his petition owing to a number of his creditors suing him. He commenced trad- ing about twelve years ago, at which date he had a capital of £ 63; that he also worked as a journeyman butcher during the first ten years of his trading, and it was not until about two years age that he devoted all his time to the business, He admits that he knew he was insolvent about this date, since when he has contracted new debts amounting to over JE150, his only ex- pectation of payment being the hope that trade would revive. The only books of account kept are daybooks of credit sales. There is nothing to show the result of the trading or what he has done with the cash taken in the business, and he cannot show his financial position at any date, but he appears to have been insolvent for many years past. He estimates his assets at JE54, but they are not likely to produce this amount.— No resolution was passed and the Official Receiver remains trustee.
