—— JUDGE WADDY AND MONEY- LENDERS. On Monday, at the Glossop County Court, before Judge Waddy, Q.O., a labourer named John Galvin, of Bernard Street, applied for an administration order, the total amount of his debts being £ 40 10s 4d. It appeared that one of the creditors was John Levi, who claimed Y,7 19s 6d, and Galvin said he had paid 8s in the pound interest.-His Honour: If you have got into the hands of money- lenders it's all up with you, and I cannot help you. When you get into the hands of these people it's a case of Hope abandon all ye who enter here." Money-lenders themselves are as bad as that other place, no matter what that place is. — Galvin said that Levi had put him into court and got 6s a month.-His Honour This case did not come before me. If it had done I should have interfered be- tween you and your money-lender, who has taken advantage of you. What makes this appear more abominable is that you cannot separate these extor- tionists from the other creditors. The Judge ob- served that Galvin offered to pay 5s in the pound at 4s per month, and as none of the creditors object- ed he would make the order.-Galvin promised to keep up the payments, and his Honour said If you don't you are the biggest donkey I have seen for sometime." —
