      Morning Bulletin (Rockhampton, Qld. : 1878 - 1954) Tuesday 16 March 1897

      THE .SUPREME COURT.
      Monday, 15th March
      Before His Honour Mr. Justice Power.
      In the matter of Joseph Rossiter and Alexander Henry, of Rockhampton, carpenters and contractors, insolvents - adjourned application on the part of Joseph Rossiter for a certificate of discharge.
      Mr. F. O'Rourke, instructed by Messrs. Rees R. and Sydney Jones, appeared for the applicant and stated the application was made under Section 109 of the Insolvency Act. He also read the affidavit of Rossiter, which was filed on the 17th of February last, and which stated that prior to being adjudicated insolvent on the 23rd of May, 1879, he had been carrying on business in Rockhampton as a constructor for sixteen or seventeen years. In 1879 Henry also carried on business as a contractor in the town. Tenders were called for the erection of a Presbyterian manse, and Henry and himself tendered for the work separately. It was arranged between them that if Henry was successful in obtaining the work he (Rossiter) was to work with him ; and if he (Rossiter) was successful, Henry was to work with him. In either case Rossiter was to find the money, as he was the monied man and Henry was not in a position to finance the matter through. Henry’s tender was accepted, and Rossiter worked with him at the job until the building was practically completed. Not having received any money for wages, as agreed, Rossiter sued Henry for the amount due to him ; but he was unsuccessful. As Henry had not paid some of the persons to whom he was indebted for materials, one of them, named David Wiley, sued Rossiter and obtained judgment, it being held that Rossiter was a partner of Henry. Subsequently, on the petition of Wiley, Rossiter and Henry were adjudicated insolvent. Henry had no property; but the whole of Rossiter's property was realised, and he lost everything he had. The insolvency was closed by an order of the Supreme Court on the 29th of June, 1881, and the trustee (Rees Rutland Jones) was released by an order of the Court on the 8th of August, 1881. Dividends amounting to 8s. 6d. in the £ were paid on all the debts proved in the estate, and in Rossiter's separate estate 20s. in the £ was paid. He made a full and fair discovery of the estate, and had not granted or promised any payment or security or entered into any collusive agreement for the purpose of obtaining the consent of the majority of the creditors whose debts amounted to £10 and upwards, and who had consented in writing to a certificate of discharge being granted to him. Mr. O'Rourke also read a consent to a discharge being granted, signed by a majority of the creditors (which consent was filed on the 22nd of February, 1897), and stated that notice had been given to the Official Trustee, under rule 121, and the Gazette notice filed.
      The Registrar (Mr. J. L. Blood-Smyth) read the report of the trustee (Mr. Rees R. Jones), which is dated the 23rd of February last, and which was filed on the same date. In that Mr. Jones stated that according to the insolvents' statement of affairs, the joint debts of Rossiter end Henry were £198 1s. and the assets £12 3s. 3d. and in the insolvents' separate estates there were no creditors and no assets set forth; that in the separate estate of Rossiter he paid preferent claims and rates amounting to £18 3s. in full ; that he also paid 8s. 6d. in the £ on the debts of the joint estate amounting to £210 11s. 10d., involving an expenditure of £89 12s. 7d.; that the rest of the estate realised went in expenses; that the money received, with the exception of £4 1s. 9d. received from the Official Trustee on account of the joint estate, all came from the separate estate of Rossiter by the realisation of certain real estate which had been transferred by Rossiter to Mary Rossit; that he obtained an order upsetting the transfer, and the land with the exception of a piece that was held on a possessory title extending over only fifteen years, was transferred to him ; that after the order had been obtained Rossiter put no further difficulties in his way ; that he was of opinion the whole of the properties of the insolvents had been realised ; that he believed the cause of tho insolvency was Henry contracting to build the manse and having no capital of his own ; that neither of the insolvents had passed their last examination, and any further examination, in his (Mr. Jones's) opinion, would be of little use ; and that be did not object to a certificate being granted to Rossiter. The Registrar also read the report of the Official Trustee (Mr. J. B. Hall, Brisbane), which is dated the 10th instant, and which was filed on the 15th instant. Mr. Hall stated that from tho date of the release of Mr. Jones as trustee up till the 23rd of October last (when an order was made transferring the proceedings in the insolvency to the Central Supreme Court) there had been no dealings in the estate. The report of the Official Trustee, Rockhampton (Mr. J. L. Blood-Smyth), was also read by the Registrar. It is dated the 15th instant, and was filed on the same day. In the report the Official Trustee stated that, as far as he could ascertain from the papers, the only outstanding asset in the estate was the right, title, and interest of Rossiter of, in, and to allotment 5 of section 51, containing 10 perches, situated in the county of Livingstone, parish and town of Rockhampton, of which Rossiter had held adverse possession in 1881 for about fifteen years, but whose only title to the land consisted of the adverse possession. A search at the Real Property Office showed that the land was sold by the real owner some few years after the insolvency, and before Rossiter could obtain a title by possession. Roster had not passed his last examination, and he (the Official Trustee) did not require him to do so, as he could not see that it would be of any advantage to his estate.
      His Honour granted a discharge to Rossiter.
