INSOLVENCY MEETING
Tuesday, August 12
Before Mr A Money Fisher, District Commissioner
     A special meeting was held in the insolvent estate of Henry Augustus James for the examination of witnesses.
     Mr Harper (for Mr Wilkinson who was indisposed) appeared on behalf of the official assignee.
     Mr Iceton watched the proceedings on behalf of the insolvent.
     Selwyn Pembrooke deposed: I am the local agent of the official assignee in the insolvent estate of H A James; in compliance with instructions received from the official assignee, I proceeded to the insolvent's residence on the 5th August instant, for the purpose of attaching the assets in the insolvent's estate; I attached certain furniture and other things, a list of which I produce. (List attached and marked A.) The following conversation passed between insolvent and myself:- I saw a dray standing close to the house, and I asked him where the harness was; he replied, "The dray is not mine, nor is the harness, neither are the three horses, they all belong to a party named Michael Whalen;" Whalen was present at the time; the insolvent said that in June 1882, Whalen lent him £30 to purchase the horses, dray and harness; the money was to have been paid at the end of six months; about January 1883, I could not pay the £30 to Whalen, and I gave Whalen a receipt for the horses, dray and harness, in consideration of Whalen foregoing the payment of the £30; I noticed that the name H A James, Hard's Flat, had been recently partially erased from the dray; the erasing of the name must have been recently done, as I noticed it was on the dray during the present year; I have seen the name on the dray within the last three months; the farm occupied by insolvent contains I believe about 75 acres; insolvent told me the farm was freehold; about 30 acres of the land are under crop; the crop is for hay; I asked insolvent if the crop was his; he said, "No, I did not intend to put in a crop this year and Whalen said he would put the land under crop;" I asked insolvent if Whalen was to give him any consideration for the use of the land; he (insolvent (replied "No"; insolvent is a married man, and has four or five children; I believe insolvent has no other means of supporting his family except by his farm; he also brought wood into Yass with his team; insolvent told me that the farm belonged to his wife by a deed of gift, and that he had no interest in the land; he also said that after his wife's death the land went to his daughter, and then to his son; he said the deed was in the possession of Mr Iceton, Solicitor, of Yass; after the attaching of the horses and dray, I received a protest from Whalen, who claimed them; (Letter attached and marked B); I have realised a portion of the assetsof the estate, amounting to £7-13-0; the protest marked B is in my handwriting: I wrote it at the dictation of Whalen, and read it over to him, and he signed it.
     Edward Arthur Iceton deposed: I am a solicitor, residing at Yass; I produce a deed, dated 25th January, 1876, made between Timothy Kileen, of the first part, Ann Kileen, of the second part, and Ellen James, wife of H A James, and daughter of Timothy Kileen, of the third part, and William James of the fourth part; it contains two parcels of land - one of 30 acres, and the other of 44½ acres; the land is conveyed to Ann Kileen and Ellen James during the life of the said Ann Kileen, or during her widowhood, should she survive the said T Kileen, without impeachment or waste, and should she marry, it was to go to Ellen James without impeachment or waste, and on her decease, in case the said Ann Kileen should survive her to the use of the said Ann Kileen during her lifetime or widowhood without impeachment or waste, and on decease of both Ann Kileen and Ellen James, or the marriage of the said Ann Kileen, in case she should be the survivor of the two, to the use of the then eldest surviving child of the said Ellen James, and the said Henry Augustus James, his or her heirs or assigns for ever; in the event of there being no such child of the said Ellen and Henry A James then to the heirs of Timothy Kileen for ever; the date of the registration 28th February, 1876, No. 315, book 157; I do not know wheter there was any document amongst the papers signed by Timothy Kileen; my knowledge is confined to the contents of the deed; there may be such a document in my possession; I have not searched my papers for any other document.
     Michael Coen deposed: I am a storekeeper, residing in Yass; I know the insolvent, Henry Augustus James; he was indebted to me in the sum of £91-7-11 at the time of his insolvency; on 24th March last he owed me £77-14-1; at that time I had a conversation with insolvent; I told him that his account was so high I must have some security or that I would stop his credit; he relied he had plenty of security, I need not be afraid, as my account was quite safe; he said he had 75 acres of land (freehold); he said he had a stack of hay worth between £50 and £60 unencumbered in any way; he said Crago has a lien on the hay, but there is a separate stack that will more than pay Crago's lien, and I will give you a lien on the stack of hay, which is worth between £50 and £60; he said there was between 12 and 15 tons of hay in the stack; he asked me not to bring the hay in at once, as he had just commenced to plough, and was going to put in the whole of his land, about 75 acres, under crop this year, and it would take him about four months to do it; he said he would deliver the hay in the latter end of July - that would be last month; he then asked me to let him have some more goods, and I said I would on the strength of what he had told me, but he must keep down the account, as it was very high; he gave me a lien of the stack of hay he spoke previously of; It was only on the representation that insolvent was putting all his land under crop that I advanced him any goods; the whole of this conversation took place in the presence of Mr J McEvoy, my clerk; insolvent endeavoured to obtain more goods on the 28th June last: I did not let him have them, in consequence of something I had heard; I have received from Crago £6-8-3, the amount over and above his claim on the hay; I sold a gun to insolvent, valued at £12-2-6; I did not press James to go into the Insolvent Court.
     Michael Whalen deposed: I am a farmer; I reside at Hard's Flat, in the same house with insolvent; I am unmarried; I am in no way related to insolvent; I commenced farming at Hard's Flat this year; I have been living with James for five years; prior to commencing farming this year, I was sometimes working on the line and sometimes for other people; I sometimes got 15s. sometimes 20s., and sometimes 25s. per week with rations; this time last year I was working on the line; I went back to insolvent's place in the spring time of last year; I was living at James' in June 1882; I was working for him splitting billet wood; I received 2s. per ton, and split about three tons a day; James supplied me with rations; my team brought the wood into town; my team consists of three horses and a dray; I got the three horses and dray and harness from insolvent; in June 1882, I gave insolvent £30 to buy his team; he gave me no receipt at that time for the thirty pounds; I gave him the money in notes - fives and ones; James bought one of the horses from Field's; in January, 1883, insolvent could not pay the money, and he gave me a receipt for the horses, dray and harness; I produce the receipt; insolvent wrote the receipt.
     Witness objected to have his receipt attached to the proceedings, and a copy was attached.
     Examination continued: I left the horses, dray, and harness in insolvent's possession; although I was the owner of them; in january last I was working at a threshing machine; at the time the receipt was given insolvent's name was on the dray; the name of insolvent appeared on the dray up to within a month ago; I took the name off the dray, I did not want another man's name on my dray; I swear I do not know anything about insolvent's position; he did not tell me he owed money to anybody in town; I knew Louise James, brother of insolvent; he is now deceased; J. H. P. Mallyon had an execution against Louis James; a horse and saddle were seized; I claimed the saddle, and rescued my own property; during the time I have lived with insolvent, I have not paid anything for my board; I am farming this year; I have about 30 acres under crop; the 30 acres are on insolvent's farm; I am cultivating it on the authority of insolvent's wife; I am not paying anything for the use of the land; insolvent is working on the farm, grubbing stumps out; the grubbing does not bring in any money; he is doing it for himself; the dray and horses are my own property; I am not protecting them from insolvent's creditors; I let insolvent have the use of the team, because I lived with him; I saw a breechloading gun at insolvent's place; I last saw it two or three months ago; I do not know where it has gone to; James told me he had sold the gun to his brother Louis James, since deceased; I do not know who took the gun away from insolvent's premises; I have now got the land under crop, and have the use of the dray and my board for nothing, all at the expense of the insolvent.
     Thomas Besnard deposed: I was part manager of the butchering business of S L Besnard, of Yass; I know the insolvent; he was indebted to S L Besnard in the sum of £20-1-6; in the month of June last I instructed Mr West, the bookkeeper, to collect the amount; I also tried to collect it myself; I had a conversation with insolvent; I went out to his residence, in company with Mr West, about the 20th June last; Michael Whelan was at insolvent's residence; I asked insolvent to give me the security he had spoken to West about; I asked him about the dray and horses he had offered to West as security; he said, "they are not mine;" I said, "why did you want to sell two of the horses to me the other day;" he said, "I could not sell them to you, as they were not mine now;" insolvent offered to sell me the horses about the middle of June; I wanted to purchase two draught horses, and seeing insolvent in the street with a dray and three horses I said, "do you want to sell either of the horses;" he said, "yes, you can have the horse in the shaft for £15 and £20 for the leading horse; I offered him £15 for the leader; he said he would give me a trial if I would give him £20 for the leader; when we had the conversation at insolvent's place, insolvent said, "I cannot let you have the horses now, as I gave a receipt for them to that young man, pointing to (Michael Whalen) about two months ago; he then told me he was insolvent, and I replied, "the receipt is no good"; I swear he said the receipt was given to Whalen two months ago;
     To Mr Iceton: The conversation took place between the 20th June and 1st July; I did not know whether James was insolvent at the time; I did not know that he did not file his schedule until the 11th July.
     Henry Augustus James deposed: I am the insolvent, in whose estate this meeting is being held; I have a wife and five children; the eldest is 9 years of age; since 1882 I have been farming and drawing wood into Yass; last season I had about 30 acres under crop; I put it in myself; I had 16 or 17 acres under hay; I made two stacks of the hay - eight tons in one stack, and fifteen in the other; I gave P. T. Crago a lien on the growing crop for £40; I owed Crago about £20 at the time I gave Crago the lien; the debt to Crago was increased to £40 ; I owed Crago £20 when I signed the lien; Crago afterwards gave another man £20 on my account; It was agreed when I signed the Lien that Crago was to give J. H. P. Mallyon £20 on my account; I sold Peter Johnston, of Yass, about two tons of the hay at £4 per ton; I got permission from Crago to sell Johnston the first load of hay, but not the second; I sold Johnston the second load about a fortnight before my insolvency; I did not deliver the remainder of the hay; Crago took it away; I have had transactions with Mr Coen; I owed him about £77 last March; I recollect Cohen asking me to pay my account; I told him I could not pay any money until I sold the hay; I told Coen I believed the hay would bring enough money to pay my way; I did not tell Coen in March last that I had a stack of hay that was not encumbered; I think Mr McEvoy was present; although Crago had a lien I gave Coen a lien over one of the stacks; the lien was not read over to me before I signed it; I never said to Coen that there was one stack more than would pay Crago, and he could have a lien over it; I swear there was nothing sold by me about putting in a crop this year; I did ask Coen not to press me for payment until July; my reason, as stated to Coen at the time, was that I thought my hay would bring a greater price; I told Coen I could not bring in the hay until the ploughing was over; I did not lead Mr Coen to believe it was Whalen's ploughing I meant; I swear Coen never attempted to stop my credit; I got goods from Coen after this conversation; my credit was never stopped; I did not authorise my wife to get anything from Coen; my wife was refused some goods by Mr Coen; there are a dray horses, and harness at my place; they never belonged to me; I first had them in my possession during the year 1882; I bought the horses; I got the receipt for the black horse; I bought a bay mare from Fields, but got no receipt; I got a brown horse from George Whalenin a swop; I got no receipt from either Fields or Whalen; I paid £8-15-0 for one horse, £12 for the second, and the third one is worth £4 or £5; the dray cost £17; the harness cost about £6; before I commenced to buy the horses I had about £12 or £13; I got a loan of £13 from Whalen; no one but Whalen and myself were present when I asked him for the loan; Whalen was working on the line at the time; the money was all in notes; Whalen took it out of his pocket to give it to me; my name was put on the dray when it was made; I told the man to make a dray for me; I gave Whalen no receipt for the money when he gave it to me; the £30 was to be paid back to Whalen in about six or seven monthsfrom the time the loan was made; I gave Whalen a receipt for the horses, dray, and harness, which cost me £46, for his claim of £30; when Whalen asked me to pay him the £30 back, I told him I could not repay him, and then gave him the receipt; Whalen has made my place his home for the last four or five years; I kept him; he paid nothing for his board; I swear the receipt was given to Whalen in January1883; the receipt was written in my house; I do not know if my wife was present; The dray and horses were left in my charge, and I was to work them all the same; I might have said to Whalen it would be better to take my name off the dray; I never erased my name from the dray; it is about one month since the name was erased off the dray - about a week before my insolvency; I remember meeting Mr Besnard in Cooma street, Yass, a short time ago; I was driving the team; Mr Besnard wanted to buy the leading horse; I told him I would sell it to him; he asked me what I would take for the leader; I said £30; he said the price was too high, and he would not give it; he did not offer me a price for the shaft horse; I did not tell him he could have the shaft horse for £15; I would not have taken £30 for the leader without consulting Whalen; I offered to take £30 for the leader; I am not doing any work at present; I told Whalen I was not going to put any crop in this year; I swear I have no interest in the present crop; I did plough some of the land; I was about a week ploughing altogether; Whalen was ploughing also; he paid me 20s. for the week's work, and I found him in board and lodging; Whalen is cultivating about 30 acres; I am not in a position to support my wife and family; I bought a breechloading gun from Mr Coen a short time ago, at a cost of £12-2 6; I sold the gun to my brother Louis James about two months ago; Mallyon had a judgement against me in the District Court, but I do not know whether I sold the gun after the judgement or not; my brother took the gun to the back country with him; he gave me £8-10-0 in cash, and was to send me £4 more; my brother is since dead;
     To Mr Iceton: Whalen never paid me anything for board and lodging during the four or five years he has resided at my place.
     To Mr Harper: I do not know whether there was any deed with references to the land prior to the one produced.

This concluded the business of the meeting.4
