FAILURE OF A CHESTER BUTCHER. ♦ The first meeting of the creditors of Wm. Henry Hull, 25, Eastgate Row (North), Chester, butcher, lately carrying on business at 14, Market Hall, who filed his petition on September 4th, was held at the Crypt Chambers, Eastgate-street Row, on Friday morning. The Assistant Official Receiver (Mr. Williams) presided, and debtor was represented by Mr. Gamon, junr. (Messrs. Parry, Gamon, and Farmer). Debtor's state- ment of affairs shewed a deficiency of R223 2s Debtor attributes his position to inexperience, want of capital, and bad trade during the year. The Official Receiver's observations on the case were that the bankrupt was 29 years of age, and for the past two years had been carrying on business as a butcher at the Market Hall, Chester. He started business with a borrowed capital of z620, and in a few weeks afterwards he had a further overdraft of R30. The bankrupt had scheduled 33 unsecured creditors, whose claims amounted to 9"115 4s. 8d. There was one partly secured creditor for E49, who also claimed in respect of money lent, and with whom an endowment policy for £100 had been de- posited. Bankrupt said he was aware of his insolvency six months ago, and had contracted fresh debts with that knowledge. He had kept cash books, ledgers, and day books, but did not appear to have made any balance sheets or annual statements of his assets and liabilities. The only asset was the furniture. In answer to Mr. Dodd, butcher, and Mr. Price, butcher(credi- tors), debtor admitted selling his shop fixtures the day before he filed his petition for R12. He put the money in the bank to reduce an over- draft. He bad borrowed R57 from money- lenders, and had paid ClO as interest, and was still owing £ 49. Questioned about his business, debtor said he sold five or six sheep a week on an average. The meeting was eventually closed. The public examination will take place on the 5th October at the Chester Castle.
