RHODES v HIS CREDITORS.– Mr George RHODES, formerly a coal proprietor, near Mottram-in-Longdendale, now insolvent, appeared for his first examination touching his debts, estate, and effects, when Mr Thomas MIDDLETON appeared for a claim against the petitioner for the sum of £15, for wages. Mr BROOKS appeared on behalf of the petitioner, and presented a numerously signed schedule, and explained that the applicant had stood out, and the estate had been sold by the executors, the whole of the money arising therefrom being divided amongst them. Complainant: The petitioner had drawn £40 through his first wife, and now he had married a second sister, would have another £40. His Honour: Even if that was so, it would be of no avail, as the marriage was not a legal one. Have you some connection with a stone quarry? Mr RHODES: I have had at Woodhead, but I only worked it for the Railway Co, they paying me in the same way as a labouring man was paid. All that belonged to me has been sold by the assignees. His Honour: I am afraid there is nothing, but I will grant a month for enquiry, and on the next time the petitioner came up for his final examination, the information could be tendered.
