was made on the bankrupt's allegation that he was possessed of considerable property, bnt enoh was not the fact. The receiver never obtained possession of any part of the bankrupt's property exoept his book*, and Mr. Kidson stated that, from information he had obtained einoe bis appointment, he believed that at the time of filing the liquidation petition the majority of the creditors of the debtor were opposed to it, and were desirous that the estate should be wound up in bankruptcy.

Mr. West, upon cross-examination, stited that when he filed the liquidation petition he knew that orders had been made upon three petitions for leave to proceed, and that executions had been issued against the debtor's property which remained unsatisfied. He heard from his bankruptcy clerk that the receiver had been continued under the adjudication, bnt he had no personal knowledge upon the subject. He had sent in a bill of costs for £63 against the estate. Since lie filed the liquidation petition he had heard that the debtor bad filed a former petition for liquidation, which still remained unclosed, and under which he had not obtained his discharge.

F. C. Willis, in support of the application.—The solicitor is entitled to the costs of the petition for liquidation. He was aware, no doubt, that petitions for adjudication were pending against the debtor, but, under the circumstances, he was entitled to consider that they would not be proceeded with. Moreover, there were thirty-eight actions pending against the debtor, and the property required protection.

Mr. Registrar Pepys.—A receiver might have been appointed, and the property protected, under one of the petitions for liquidation.

, Willis.—The debtor told the solicitor that he had debts and assets, and there is no reason why he should be deprived of his costs. If the creditors had been anxious for a bankruptcy they would have proceeded more rapidly.

E. C. Willis, as amicus curia, mentioned a case from Rochester in which Mr. Registrar Murray had allowed the costs under similar circumstances.

Creed, for the trustees.—There is no authority in support Of the present application. The proceedings under the petition for liquidation were, from every point of view, utterly useless and abortive. Ex parte Sydney (23 W. R. 205, L. R. 10 Ch. App. 208) shows that, until the former liquidation was at an end, the debtor could not enter into any new arrangement. The appointment of a receiver was unnecessary. The court has clearly a discretion as to the costs ot the solicitor: rule 292. In Ex parte Jrjery (22 W. R. 287, L R. 9 Ch. 144), Mellish, L.J., said:— "The object of the rule was that solicitors might know that if they acted properly they would get their coats of a liquidation petition, notwithstanding bankruptcy might ensue, and, as far as the words will allow us, we must fairly carry into effect the object of the rule." But that was a different case, because there the liquidation petition was presented before proceedings in bankruptcy. Under this adjudication there are hardly any assets, and the petition for liquidation and the appointment of the receiver were entirely unnecessary. Ee also cited Ex parte Hopper (L. R. 8 Ch. D. 53.)

F. C. Will s, in reply.—Is the solicitor to suffer for the misrepresentation of his client in reference to the amount of the assets? He is willing to accept what the conrt may tbink reasonable for his costs.

Mr Registrar Pepts said he thought the petition for liquidstionutterly useless under the oircumstances which existed at the time. Several petitions for adjudication had been presented against the debtor, and, if they had been simply adjourned sins die, the case would have been different, butsomeof the creditors had applied for and obtained appointments for a further hearing. Then, and not till then, tbe debtor put a liquidation petition on the file. It was competent for the petitioning creditors under the bankruptcy petitions to make an application for the appointment of a receiver, but they had not done so, and although the bankrupt stated that he had assets amounting to £8,000, the actual amount was very small. The applicant now asked that be might recaive £63 ont of the estate for costs, bnt as he (the registrar) had a discretion under rule 292, he mnst decline to make any order, and tbe application would be refused.

(Befort Mr. Registrar Hazlitt, acting as Chief Judge.) April 1.—Be Barnett, Moss, <t- Co.

After the presentation of a petition for liquidation, the overseers of the poor of the parish within which the debtors ctrried on business caused a distress to be levied up >n the goods of the debt irs in respect of oni quarter's poor rates.

The court ordered the offi ;»r to withdraw from possession, and restrained further proceedings by the overseers, the trust56 under the liquidation undertaking to pay the amount ot the rates within tourteen days.

This was an application on behalf of the trustee under a liquidation by arrangement for an injunction to restrain the overseers of the poor of the parish of St. Leonard, Shoreditch, from further enforcing a distress warrant issued against the goods of the debtors, and for an order to withdraw from possession.

The debtors, Messrs. Barnett, Moss, & Co., presented a petition for liquidation on the 17th of January, and at the adjourned first meeting, hel l on the 2nd of March, the creditors passed a resolution for liquidation by arrangement, and appointed a trustee. On the 17th of March the trustee received a certificate of his appointment. A few days since the overseers of the poor of St. Leonard's, Shoreditch, applied to a police magistrate for, and obtained a distress warrant against, the goods of the debtors in respect of one quarter's poor rates, and in pursuance of that warrant a levy had been made. The trustee then obtained leave to serve short notice of the present application. It was admitted by the trustee that, when the estate had been realized, there would be sufficient funds for payment of the rates.

Finlay Knight, in support of tbe application—Under section 32 of the Bankruptcy Act all paroohial or other rates due at the date of order of adjudication are payable in priority to all other debts. They are, however, proveabla debts, and under section 12 the respondents have no remedy against the person or property of the debtor, except in manner directed by the Act. Before the time arrives for payment of the rates the respondents levy upon the goods of the debtors. This they have no right to do.

Mugliston, for the respondents.—The injunction ought not to be granted in this case. Under section 13 the conrt has a discretion to allow proceedings, "whether in progress at the commencement of the bankruptcy or commenced during its continuance, to proceed upon such terms as tbe court may think just." If the respondents do not get these rates quarterly they have to make a larger rate upon those people who are willing to pay, and this is obviously inconvenient to the public. Rule 260 also shows that the court has a discretion. The respondents might have sold the goods under the distress, and there is nothing to show that the estate will be prejudiced by a sale.

Knight.—To allow a creditor who has a preferential right to enforce that right by distress upon the debtor's property will be productive of the greatest inconvenience.

Mr. Registrar Hazlitt said the rates must be paid ; the only question was in reference to tbe time. He thought the nroper order to make nnder the circumstsncos would be |o direct the officer to withdraw from possession and to restrain further proceedings by the overseera, but the trustee must undertake to pay the rates within fourteen days. There would be no order as to costs.

At the CbarlevilJe Petty Session*, says the Irish correspondent of the Times, a case of a novel character came 00 for hearing. Mr. J. R. 0'Gorman, proprietor of one of the hotels of the town, was indicted for that, beiDg an innkeeper, he, on the 15th of March, refused to receive and entertain Mr. Norris Goddard, Mr. Charles John Smith, and other representatives of the Property Defeoce Association at his hotel, they being able and willing to pay for their entertainment. At half-past six o'clock on the evening mentioned five persons applied for and obtained accommodation at the hotel, and at halfpast ten o'clock Mr. O*Gorman, having been informed that they were representatives of the Property Defence Association, compelled them to leave the house, which they did, having previously warned Mr. OfGorman that they would hold him responsible for the consequences of his sots. Mr. Rice, the Sessional Crown Prosecutor, was unable to produce any authorities showing that the charge made was an indictable offence, as all the "Jarveys'* refused to convey his law books from the railway station to the court-house. Under these circumstances, the magistrates decided to submit the evidence in the case to the Law Adviter for his opinion as to whether an indictable offence was disclosed.
