LLANDUDNO BAKER'S FAILURE. At the Bangor Bankruptcy Court on Thursday Thomas Meredith, baker and grocer, Artro Villa, Trinity Street, Llan- dudno, was publicly examined. He re- turned his gross liabilities as £ 627 16s. 4d., the deficiency being, £:159 Is. 7d. He ascribed his insolvency to "bad debts, giv- ingi credit, loss on goods/' The 'Official Receiver reported that the debtor, who was 53 years of age, had car- ried on business at the New Bakery for thirteen years and before that for about six years at Bodafon Road at Llandudno. He stated that he had no capital when he started in business, but £ 10 borrowed from an uncle, and since repaid, and 215 g:)t from his wife, still said to be due. The debtor was the owner of the lease- hold bakehouse, which he purchased in 1901 for £ 490 and mortgaged then for £ 450. The sum now due on the mortgage was scheduled, at £:495 9s. 10d., the value of the property being estimated at JE400, leaving £ 95 9s. 10d. unsecured. There was no stock in the shop at the date of the receiving order. The wife had been tenant of Artro Villa for nine months, and the debtor before that time. The wife claimed all the furniture and effects there on the ground that she bought them from her own savings and earnings, the earn- ings being for lodging-house keeping. The debtor had kept no cashbook or pro- per books, and admitted knowledge of in- solvency twelve months ago or a little more. Questioned by Mr Tobicas, the debtor said that his wife made R,104 out of the house last year, compared with 297 for the previous year. The Assistant Official Receiver: How much a week did you allow your wife 7- Nothing in money. You are unique. You ought to be set on al pinnacle by yourself. On the application of Mr Tobias, who remarked that the case was a most extra- ordinary one, the examination was closed.
