The Assignee said that as those present were aware, where there were two partners there must b8 three meetings, one in respect to each of the separate estates and one of the creditors iu the joint tßtate. The book debts, he believed, were understated. By the estimate made by Mr Reith, these amounted to L 1,500, whioh was recoverable according to his idea. In answer to the ABaignee, Mr Jonea said that he was prepared to offer L 5.750 for the available assets, including the private assets. The Assignee said it would be well for tho creditors to know what they were asked to Bell. The aseets which tho debtor offered to buy were stock L 4.870, debts L 1.500, bills available L3OO, consignments still to be accounted for LI 50, private property L 1.250, shares Lll6, landed property LI9O ; total, L 8.326. Taking out the private assets, there would be L 7.126. Mr G. L. Denniston suggested that the Assignee and two supervisors bo asked to consider the offer and report.
Mr Beal supported the suggestion. He for one was utterly confounded with the figures presented at the different meetings, and would not know how to act until some explanation was given. In answer to Mr Reeves, bankrupt stated that the securities held by the bank wero not of recent purchase.
Messrs G. L. Denniston and J. Davie were elected supervisors.
