(Before the Chief Commissioner.)
IN RE HENRY HICKMAN.
A first and only meeting. Official assignee,
No creditors were present, and the assignee said he did not expect any, as the only asset was a razor.
The insolvent stated that nineteen months ago he opened a hairdresser's shop at Bal- larat, with stock worth 40l. He made at first from 15l. to 20l. a week, but of this he paid 3l. a week rent, and 3l. 10s. a week and board to an assistant. Latterly he did not make more than 6l. a week. Since his
insolvency he had been working at Sand- ridge as a journeyman hairdresser, for 2l. 10s
His Honor said that as the insolvent's debts amounted to only a small sum, he thought he might pay off his creditors in a twelvemonth, but at any rate he must fur- nish to the assignee an account of his receipts and expenditure.
The meeting then closed.
