In that month he took the White Horse Inn, Rhyl, having at that time 950 of his own besides his furniture. He loft on 10th July last, when the stock and fixtures were valued at E18. At that time he appeared to have been unwilling to assent to a transfer of the licence, but ultimate- ly agreed, and E9 was then paid to his solici- tor in respect of the E18 which he stated was applied towards costs. He removed his furni- ture from the inn, but stated that shortly after. wards he sold it for E9. He appeared to have lived since in various places at Rhyl, but fol- lowed no oonstant employment. He was insured in a post office benevolent fund, and believed that about JB60 would be payable at death, and he (the Official Receiver) was ascertaining whether there was any surrender value to it.
