A Publican's Affairs.

At the office of the Official Receiver for the Bury St. Edmunds District on Monday, the first meeting of creditors was held under the failure re. Francis Joseph Wright, later than "Maidstone Arms," Camden Road, Ramsgate, licensed victualler, now serving in H.M. Army in a regiment stationed at Bury St. Edmunds. The statement of affairs filed by the debtor disclosed gross liabilities and mountains to 338 10s. 0d., of which 264 10s 0d. is expected to rank for dividend. In his observations the Official Receiver, who remains trustee, says that:- "The statement of affairs show a surplus, but the information I have received leaves me to think that claim will be made in excess of the sums scheduled by the bankrupt, two in number, one being for 60 money lent by relative, and the other for goods supplied. The creditor returned as partly accused holds, a policy on a debtor's life, which will mature in June next.
