A meeting of creditors in the bankrupt estate of Walter Shaw, ex-solicitor, was held at Tiroaru yesterday. The Official Assignee submitted a report and statement of accounts, which proved that the debts amounted to £51,867. Since the middle of 1913, £1,908 had been received' and £1,729 expended, and solicitors' fees (probably £450) had not yet. been paid. There is £1,940 that is probably realisable, but much of it will take many years to collect, and other more doubtful sums amount to £3.200. A solicitor said he thought that by careful management Is in the pound could be saved. The meeting resolved that the remaining assets be sold if possible. " I cannot sing the old eongs," She warbkd. It was true ; And it wasn't a bit less painful Wh-211 she tried to sing the ni-v,. —' Musical America.'
