QUESTIONS ABOUT JEWELLERY. BANKRUPT AND BAILIFF. Before the registrar (Mr. Cousins) at Car- diff Bankruptcy-court on Tuesday, David John Phillips, builder and contractor, 114 Bridgend-road, Maesteg, appeared, with lia- bilities ranking for dividend amounting to JB305 Is. 6d., and deficiency L291 lis. 6d. In answer to the Official Receiver, the debtor stated that this was not his first experience of the bankruptcy-court. He was an undischarged bankrupt during his last trading. Asked whether lie had any alteration to make to his statement of affairs, bankrupt replied, Yes, as I have not disclosed every- thing." What do you want to disclose?—Jewellery. What is the jewellery?—Two gold watches, one silver one, three gold rings, lady's bangle and two chains. You were in my office on Wednesday last. Why did you not give the information then? -I did not know then where they were. Let me warn you that I know that state- ment to be untrue. I know more about this jewellery than you think I do, and I warn you to be careful about your answers in your own interests. Where is that jewellery now ? —Clanzy, the bailiff, has it. He is the bailiff of the County Court at Bridgend, and gave me money to pay executions. Has he been advancing you money on jewellery?—Yes. At whose suggestion was it that you bor- rowed money from the bailiff of the Bridgend County Court?—I asked him to give me money, and I said I would deposit the jewel- lery with him. How much money ?—-He wants £ 24 now. How much money did you get from him? —i did not have it all in money. Well, how much money had you from Clanzy?— £ 12. Bankrupt admitted, when further pressed, that it was not welve months since he had the money from Clanzy. He was in gaol at the time he filed his petition under a com- mitment on a judgment summons. The bai- liff offered by letter to let him have the jewellery back on payment of a certain sum of money. Pressed as to where that letter was, bankrupt said he was not certain, but he might be able, he thought, to find it at home. The Official Receiver: I require you to deliver that letter up to me. Bankrupt stated that in 1904 Michael Lazarus Marks, trading as Usher and Co., Swansea, issued a writ for R425 against him on a number of promissory notes given by debtor and his wife. Marks has a mort- gage on bankrupt's property, and that debt had been paid out. The Official Receiver: I see he is one of your unsecured creditors now to the extent of £ 139 16s. 6d. A large bundle of judgment summonses and County Court papers, which had been handed over by the bankrupt were produced by the Official Receiver, who asked: "Why did you with all these summonses against you incur these debts for jewellery?"—I thought I would be able to pay them. I had three houses in Bridgend-road, and was financed by Mr. T. J. Hughes, Bridgend, and I had to transfer these three houses for less than their value to Mr. David Davies, of Liverpool House, eighteen months or two years ago. The examination was provisionally closed.
