PONTYPRIDD BANKRUPTCY COU.RT. THE FAILURE OF "LOCAL COLLIERY PROPRIETORS. At Pontypridd Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday (before Mr E. C. Spickett, registrar), the Official Receiver (Mr W. L Daniel) conducted the public examination of Mr Evan Davies, Primrose-hill, Ystrad.Rhondd^; mid Mr W. Williams, of the VVyndh^m Arms, Treherbert, who were partners in conducting tht: Cribwr Main Colliery. Mr T. Phil- lips, solicitor, Aberdare, appeared to watch the proceedings for the debtors; and Mi H. LJ. Grover I for the bDn;'ers.-tr Evan Davies was first exa- mined, and gave an account of moneys he had been obliged to borrow from time to time in his own name, in order to sp--nd it on the colliery, which was the property of the partnership. The principal items in the liet of unsecured creditors upon his private estate were those who had lent him money. As far as his own private estate was concerned, he had never received a county court summons or any 1 kind of action against him.—Mr Spickett Then the A I difficulties of your private estate have been brought I about in connection with the colliery ? Witness Yes, Sir. Then proceeding, Mr Davies said he joined Mr Williams ten or eleven years ago, and the partnership was br ught about in this way ¡ Mr Williams asked him to go to Mr Randall, Lord Dunraven's agent, to arrange for a "tak- ing" in which to work the coal. He went, and, Mr Randall seid "Alr Williams is a stranger to me but you take it, and you shall have it." That led to the partnership. Titers was no deed of partner- ship drawn, however, until about a year ago. They took 400 or 509 acres of land at about Cl an acre. There was no arrangement as to the money that was to be invested or taken out of the colliery. He had about E4000 in his p ssession when the partnership wag commenced. He had never received a farthiDg from the colliery. He had I ever had anything to do .ith the colliery. lie went there two or three i times during the eleven years. He lived about ten j miles from the colliery. He had never seen the books of the colliery before that day, but he thought, of course that some such books were kept. He bad never seen the partnership banking book. He did not know how many workmen were employed. He knew that there was works' doctor, and that it was Dr Davies, of Llantrisant, but he did not know how much was owing to him in the shape of fees.—Mr Williamp, the other partner, was next examined, and stated, in reply to Mr Daniel, that he had carried on business at the Wyndham Arms, Treherbert, from 1873, and prior to that time he was a works' contractor, erecting buildiugs in connection with colliery work. He was six years under the Glamorganshire Coal Company- Mrs Williams was a widow, living at the Wyndham Arms, when he married her. He had been successful in business previous to his marriage, and he had about £ 3000 of his own. He had not invested it, but had kept it in the house. He subsequently explained that some of it was in house property, and that the remainder was in the house, it being necessary to keep some in hand, as at that time he employed a very large number of workmen. There was a marriage settlement drawn up before his marriage with Mrs Williams. Mrs Williams had a separate income of her own. He had had no experience in the business of innkceping, but his wife continued to conduct the business. The takings at that time were about X50 a week. He did not keep the books at all, but they reckoned the takings about once a week. He had no banking account then. That was commenced in December, 1878. He did not think that they had been making any profit at all in the public-house for the last two years, as times had been so bad.—Mr Daniel: Why did you carry it on ?—Witness: Think- ing times would improve; that is what we have been expecting all of us for the last six or eight years. The witness proceeded to say that he had been using his own money, and afterwards money from the public house, towards the colliery until the last two years, when thero was none coming from the public house to use. During the last two years he had been using a portion of his wife's income towards the colliery. The reason that trade was bad in the top of the Rhondda was that the collieries bad been idle for some time, and previous to that there ht.d been some difficulties in working other collieries in the neighbourhood. His private estate deficiency amounted to 93004 hh 6d, which represented a portioa of the amount lost on the colliery. He did not consider that it bad been hazardous trading because they bad been looking for- ward to improved times. There had been no profits on the working of the colliery ever since the commencement, but of course they expected to spend some monay in opening out a colliery. The land taken was subject to a payment to Mr Arthur WiUiams. M.P., of £ 200 a year dead rent. It was first of all f50 a year, but it was advanced at the rate of £ 50 a year until it arrived at £ 200. He had not paid Mr Williams anything, and there was probablv £ 1000 or i:1200 due in in the shape of dead rent. He had reckoned Mr Williams as a creditor for £1000. He did not know that Mr Williams claimed £ 2300, but he thought that if Mr Williams got the £ 1000 he ought to be satisfied. At the same time he was not aware that that amormt-tras due to him. He had paid some money on account of dead rent to Mr Leonard Wil- liams, brother of Mr Arthur Williams. He believed the receipts could be produced. He had never quali- fied for a colliery manager, but had been brought up as a builder and a mason, subsequently taking con- tracts in and around collieries. He had seen the colliery books before to-day, but had never examined 1 them because he would not have been any wiser if he had done sc. Their agent kept the accounts. That agent had told him that they were losing about X150 a month on the colliery, but no copies of the accounts were sent to him. A long examination ensued as to the mortgages on the property, Mr Daniel remarking that Mr Williams seemed to have mortgaged every- thing. and Mr Grover, who appeared for the bank, said he was quite satisfied as to the most recent mortgages. Witness, continuing, said the amount due to the bank was £ 13,615. He valued the colliery at £ 5000.—After some further evidence with regard to the accounts, &c., the examination was adjourned for a fortnight, Mr Phillips, on behalf of the debtors, in the meantime to furnish further accounts, and to forward them to the Official Receiver.

Whooping Cough Difficulty of Breathing, and all Affec- tions of the Chest and Lungs. IW Extraordinary Cure of a Cough of Six Years' standing, declared before a Commissioner to Administer OathB in the Supreme Court of Judicature, England. I HENRY JAMES GAMMAGE, of 5 116 & 117, Widemarsh-street, in the City of Hereford, Contractor and Decorator, do solemnly and, sin- cerely declare as follows :— 1 About eight years ago 1 had a severe attack of rheumatic fever, from which, when I bad recovered, I had a bad cough, and the medical man who attended me, who is one of the Visit- ing Surgeons to the Hereford Infirm- ary, informed me that I never could be thoroughly cured from it. 2 From that time until about two years ago I have suffered more or less from the same cough, wbich at times was worse than at others. I especially was affected by it in the morningswben I got up, when sometimes I coughed until I was almost suffocated, and I thought I should be stifled. 3 During those years I consulted several medical men, from following whose advice I obtained no relief, and I have taken various patent medicines with the same result, and I bad given up all hope of alleviating the couçb. 4 About two years ago I was recom. mended by a friend to buy a bottle of George's Cough Balsam, And although I had no faith in its proving efficacious, I gave way to my friend's importunities, and purchased a bottle. 5 From the First Bottle of George's Cough Balsam n 9 I took I felt greatly relieved, and I bought another bottle, which I took, and which effectually cured my cough, ayi(I since that time I bad no return of the couorh. 6 If I find I have tnken cold I take a dose of the Balsam ns a preventative, and I am now, and have been since I took George's Cough Balsam As free from Cough as I ever was in my life. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true, and by virtue of the provi- sions of an Act made and passed in the fifth and sixth years of the reign of bis late Majesty King William IV, inti- tuled "An Act to repeal an Act of the present Session of Parliament, inti- tnled an Act for the more effectual Abolition of Oaths and Affirmations taken and ninde in various depart- ments of the State, and to substitute Declarations in lieu thereof, and for the more entire suppression of volun- tary and extrajudicial Oaths and Affir- mations, and to make other provisions for the abolition of unnecessary Oaths." Taken and declared at 16. Bedford. row, in the County of Middlesex, this 9th day of October, 1880, before me, C. LOCKE MULES, a Commissioner to Administer Oaths in the Supreme Court of Judicature. Hy. SMITH GAMMAGE. Mr H. A. GEORGF.-Dear Sir—Please send me three gross of Cough Balsam at once, as I shall be quite out in a few days.
