Re George Henry Best.–This debtor, a jeweller and watchmaker, carrying on business at 27, Talbot Street, Cardiff, was examined last month before Mr. Registrar Langley. He had previously failed in 1885. and obtained his discharge. His deficiency now was Â£178. He attributed his failure to speculating in Allsopp's shares, by which he had lost Â£180. The shares of other great breweries had gone very well, but so far as he was concerned at least, Allsopp's was a failure. The examination was closed.
