'I A COLWYN BAY CARRIER'S BANKRUPTCY. BOUGHT LAND AND BURIED THE MARE IN IT. At the Bangor Bankruptcy Court, to-day week, be- fore the Registrar (Mr J. Glynne Jones), Thomas Owen Robsrts, carrier, Trillo Cottage, Willoughby-road, Ool- wyn Bay, appeared for his public examination. His unsecured creditors represented X139 16s lid., and according to his statement of accounts there was a surplus of assets amounting to R64 3s 7d. The debtor attributed his insolvency to "losses of horses, sickness in family, and accident to myself." According to the Official Receiver, the debtor, who is 50 years of age, is a carrier or porter, and ap. peared to have resided in Colwyn Bay since 1882. The debtor filod another petition in 1S99, then his unsecured liabilities amounted to 9128, the receiving order being rescinded upon his paying a composition of 7s 6d in the 2. Last May the bank, rupt gave a bill of sale to his wife's uncle for "1, a past consideration, and his wife claimed other res- pects. He owned a hou-e nailed Pernios, Elwy road, the estimated value of which he put at 2940, subject to a mortgage of t740, bearng an estimated surplus of C240, which the Official Receiver was informed was successive. Questioned by the Assistant Official Receiver as to the value of the mortgaged property, the debtor said that a lady whom he regarded at one time as a likely purchaser had expressed satisfaction that the property was worth 9940. He afterwards adver- tised in the newspaper, inquiring about the lady in question. The Official Receiver: I am afraid it was a poor way of securing a purchaser. The debtor went on to say that unfortunately he bought a piece of building land at Colwyn Bay for £110. He had paid a deposit, but had not yet com- pleted the purchase nor had he been asked to com- plete.. Is the land still vacant? I buried a mare in it (laughter.) Does that increase the value of it as a monumental ground? (laughter.) Subsequently the debtor was examined by Mr T. H. Morgan, his solicitor, and Mr Lucas, one of the cre- ditors, the examination being closed.
