A JEW AND HIS ACCOUNTS. ———*——— INDEBTED LESS THAN HE THOUGHT. At Chester County Court, on Thursday, before his Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd, Eli Chenkin, a Russian Jew, of 25, Bishop- street, Hoole, applied for an administration order, his debts being stated to be R29. Mr. E. Brassey appeared for applicant, and Mr. Churton on behalf of Solomon Polinker, another Jew, and a creditor of Chenkin's, opposed the application.—Mr. Brassey, in opening, said Chenkin was a foreigner, and had come from his country.—Mr. Churton Hoole? (Laughter.)—Mr. Brassey No; I did not mean Hoole. Continuing, Mr. Brassey said Chenkin was a hawker, with a wife and five children. Some years ago he had been in hospital for six months, even now being an outside patient suffering from sciatica. His household goods were of the value of £ 2.— Applicant, who at first deprecated his ability to speak English, in giving evidence, said he had been in England five or six years. He put JE8 or JE9 in the Post Office Savings Bank shortly after he came over.—Mr. Churton: Where do you come from? Witness: From Russia.— What part of Russia? Don't know.-Do you mean to say you cannot tell where the immortal Jenkins came from ? When did you put a C to your name ? I cannot spell in English. I came from a small country.—I think Russia is a very big one. (Laughter.) Whereabout is the place you came from ? Vaskovitz.—Have you been selling goods ever since you came here ? Yea.— Then if you don't understand the language, you understand the sound of the money ? (Laughter.) Yes, shillings, six- pences, and such like. (Laughter.)—Do you z, speak English or Russian when you are selling your goods ? A little of both. (Laughter.)—Do you mean to say they understand Russian? No answer.—When did you begin to put money in the Savings Bank ? Don't know.—Where did you get it from ? From people.—Did you have as much as F,30 in the bank ? No.—When did you draw it out ? I sent it to my missis to come over from RusEia.-You want to get out of this with 3s. in the L, do you not ? Yes.— Have you been paying Cramer, of Liverpool, £70 a year for goods ? Don't know:—Sup- posing you don't owe him JE19 10s. as stated, and the amount is only £ 4 10s., will you want an administration order? No answer.- Polinker, 17, Sumpter pathway, Hoole, said Chenkin had had an excellent business, and at one time had £ 30 in the savings bank.— Cramer, a Liverpool underclothing manufac- turer, said that Chenkin did business to the extent of £ 60 or £ 70 a year with hiua. The debt owing by applicant to witness was about £ 4, and noteig 10s. as stated by Chenkin.— His Honour made no order except for the pay- ment of Chenkin's debts in full at the rate of 10s. a month. He would reduce the debts by the difference in Cramer's bill.
