EAST KENT BANKRUPTCY CASES.

Mr. Registrar Furley presided at the sitting of the Bankruptcy Court, held at Canterbury on Friday, and there was also present, the Official Receiver (Mr. Worsfold Mowll).

Re. William Davis, licensed victualler, Dover.

Mr. Payn, of Dover, appeared for the debtor, and the deficiency was stated to amount to 120. Under examination, the bankrupt stated that he formerly managed the "White Lion," at Tenterden, for four and a half years. He then took the "Rose of Denmark," Maidstone, and carried it on for four months, during which time he lost 60. He said the utmost profit he could obtain was 3s. per barrel. The official receiver observed that there was a great difference between the price to "tied" as distinct from "free" houses. On July 1st last bankrupt took a public house at Dover, and soon afterwards found he was insolvent. Allowed to pass.

(I do not know the name of the Dover house as yet. Paul Skelton.)
