Given to Entertaining. NEWPORT CASHIER'S AFFAIRS. Unfulfilled Legacy Expectation. Albert Harrison Duffieid, cashier and secre- tary, St. John's-road, Newport, underwent his public examination at the Newport Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday. The statement of affairs revealed a deficiency of £250 7s 5d. Heavy expenses, illness in the family, and heavy payments to money lenders were assigned as the causes of his bankruptcy. The Official Receiver inquired as to debtor's dealings with money lenders, and he replied that he bor- rowed £ 2o or £.30, and had to repay £50. He had paid a portion of it. The Official Receiver produced several bills which had been made out by tradesmen against the debtor, and quoted from a fishmonger s account showing that several largs quantities of salmon had been supplied to debtor at Is 8d per lb., as well as a lobster, four partridges, wild ducks and pheasants. Were all these things necessary ? Debtor said he did not think they were all ordered for him. A Voice I hope the lobster didn't cause indigestion. (Laughter.) In repiy to Mr Digby Powell, who repre- sented the debtor, the latter said the salmon was purchased by the doctor's orders for bis wife. The Official Receiver read extracts from bills for six bottles of Scotch whiskey, a dozen pints of claret, and other wines, supplied to debtor's order, the total amount being over £40. Was all this necessary "t" The Registrar said a good deal would depend on the period covered. The Official Receiver: Were you given to entertaining very much ?—Yes. Did you entertain beyond your means Yes. Debtor said he had expected a legacy from his father-in-law, but did not get it. The examination was adjourned.
