The estimated liabilities in the case are reported to amount to 9251 15s. 10d. The assets are expectcd to realise X171 10s. Debtor attributes his failure to "bad trade and inability to realize three houses in Morgan-road, Swansea." Mr, Thomas, who was previously adjudged a bankrupt in 1834, coin- Inanced his present business in 1891, with a capital of about £ 40 or £ 50, but previous to this he werked as a foreman joiner.

Alderman Morgan Tutton has already offered himself as a candidate for the proprietary trustee- ship made vacant on the Harbour Trust by the resignation of Mr. E. H.

Steeds has been named as a possible rival, but he has declared his unwillingness to stand. TESIFXRANCE MISSION.

He has received the assistance of Dr. Rawlings, Councillor Rocke, Mrs, F. S. Bishop, and many other well-known local teetotal advo- cates, and at the meetings, which have been extremely interesting, numerous pledges have been taken. The series of meetings are to be continued a few days longer. I LLANAYFELACH ROAD.
