A FURNESS MINING
At Ulverston Bankruptcy Court, on Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Charles Edmund RAY, mining engineer, of Birkby, Cark-in-Cartmel, and formerly manager for Messrs. HARRISON, AINSLIE and Co., of Lindal Moor Mines, came up for further examination. The statement of affairs showed a deficiency of £1,547 4s 7d and debtor attributed his failure to inability to obtain sums of money due to him, costs of two actions against him for wrongful dismissal.
In answers to questions by the Official Receiver, debtor stated that he had for many years carried on horse breeding on his own account at Lindal Moor, and it was with the object of continuing this business that the Birkby Hall Stud Co. Was formed. It was a private company and there were two subscribers. His wife, who had a marriage settlement, took the farm and lent him sums amounting altogether to about £1,000. None of these sums went into his own banking account.
Debtor was cross examined at some length by Mr. BARREL, solicitor, of Liverpool (one of the largest creditors), and also by Mr. DODD, barrister, on behalf of Messrs. HARRISON, AINSLIE, and Co., and the examination was adjourned sine die.
