conneetion with the business On Maroh 84 I was entitlod to draw 48700 against wheat sent and had drawn 48800 On May 12 1 hod drown 46600 and ns entitled to draw 44400 I had overdrawn 48800 I had no grounds fra saying that the Bunk of New Zealand would guarantee Crorar After May 11 when the Firth of Lome sailed all whoat waa shipped on the noeount Grain ia afloat I should think whon the bills of lading axe issued as a ra1e that is when the ship is cleared Mr Joynt had not found any technical wuMuiiwg for "afloat" Witness (to his Honor) I believe that according to the custom of trade "afloat A wiAnna when bills of lading are issued To Mr Hcdmoss 1 never told anybody that the firm required accommodation James Yhwhling (examined by Mr Fisher) am omo of the inspectors of the Bank of New Zealand I was banking for the firm of Crorar and Deaborough at Sonthbridgo The Bank has given Mr Cterar no expressed or implied undertaking to him harmless in any lose he may sufrer in connection with this claim or anything else The witness was not cross-examined Here letters from Messrs Garrick and Cowlishaw to the defendants were pat in demanding payment of 42675 12a 8d amount stated to be due to the firm after certain alleged mistakes in tha accounts had been adjoated tho replies from the Company were also put in stating that the accounts were correct and asking fra the items alleged to be incorrect John Crerar (examined by Mr Fiaher) I was lately partnership with Des-borough I never arranged to take over the contracts of Deaborough with the Grain and never oanaented to become re-' for them in any way I did not know his wheat transactions were being mixed with mine Inf the Company The draft for 41000 of May 18 1 never saw before I knew nothing about contract until a few days after the partnership began I never spoke to Mr Stead in my life The drafts for 41000 and 41600 axe the only drafts I authorised the firm to draw on the Company I had a general Ma that Deaboroogh waa drawing on hia own account against hia own wheat None of the drafts went to the account I never sanctioned drawing on the Company for the benefit of the firm Cross-examined by Mr Joynt i A few days after the partnership began Dea-boxongh explained to me that he was entering into afresh oontract which would he more advantageous than the former one He did not particiilarly explain what the other one was I managed the books as my portion of the business Mr Dee-borough did the correspondence and principally the flwn'nntal part at that time He was the senior partner I had the larger share of the capital To a oertain amount the profits were to be equally divided after that he was to have two-thirds to my one-third He was paying interest to me 8 per cent on the amount I put in mere im hia I do not know why ne did not show me the accounta directly he received them I never asked for them because I distinctly understood I had nothing to do with his accounts The hatch of accounts sent in in Jane were distinctly kept from mo 1 never saw them I think till after hia bankruptcy I found a memorandum an the desk which ww evidently a private one from which I understood that the accounts had been sent in I asked him about fitem and he said they had been sent back for correction I saw the memorandum before hia bankruptcy on Jane 27 Be-examined 1 1 saw noaooounts from the Grain Agency I kept account with them in my pwn books Mr Knlnra proposed to pot in the original statement of dafanoe aa evidence of admissions Mr Joynt objected His Honor thought it a dangerous proceeding that a plea having been withdrawn the foot or its having been pleaded should be taken as an admission of its contents The question was a now one Mr Hnlmra contended that the document on the record It oonld not be with HS5MS not quite sure that they oould do so The letter just road was the first definite Intimation I had received that they would fully load the Firth of Lome if I would loud 1000 sacks I ultimately lont 1000 Books I acted aa far aa fondling was oon-oornod upon tho oorreapomfonoe Tho Firth of Lome cleared about May 11 or 18 Of a total of 6600 sacks 4600 were branded DandOraCandD The rest merely bora a railway brand spook in round number Mr Desborough saw me early in May and pressed me to make them advances I referred him to the letter of April 9 in which wo arranged that on the further quantity thefy were not to have advance until the wnent waa afloat He then said that there was a balance coming to them on tho first contract ho supposed they must do with that Ho then intimated that they would draw the balance due on the first oontract I think ho used the personal pronoun and said: "I will draw the bolanoe that we There was a balance of about 4700 due about that time This was against the 80000 bushels but more wheat than that had been delivered At that time there were 9600 sacks delivered The 4700 was paid on May 7 I saw Deshorough again about Mur 10 or 11 when tho venel was practically loaded though I had not received advices of the completion of the loading I told him I did not think hra loading waa quite finished He said I suppose tre can draw against I printed out that they were not to draw till the wheat was afloat by whioh I understood till the bills of lading were signed I ultimately consented to their drawing 41000 against what we always termed the further lot The 41000 waa paid on May 15 Before I saw Desborough again -toother draft by Desborough and Crerar fra 41600 was paid I have seen since that the 41000 of May 16 was drawn by Desborough in his own name They were to return 1000 sarin and that was why the accounts were delayed I waited fra over three weeks for them to return the wheat and'finding they had not done so I wrote in this beginning of June (Letter of June 1 trad) I saw Mr DesborouKh between June 10 and 14 He requested us to make an advance of 4600 in excess of the value of the shipment on the Firth of Lome I was reluctant to advance more than we were bound He printed out that there were over a thousand sacks in Lyttelton belonging to them which would be ample security I pointed ont that it was not a question of security but' that it was time enough to advance when the wheat was shipped I pointed out that they were entitled to about 4500 for the wheat 3h the Firth of Lome ihdnding the wheat returned to replace that font by tu I consented to let them have a temporary advance in excess of the value of the Firth of Lome shipment A day or two later a draft for 41000 waa presented and as this represented the 4500 due on the Firth of Lome and the 4500 1 had agreed to temporarily advance to Desborough and Crerar I paid it The accounts were sent and I saw them I wrote a letter with them Mr Harper asked the other side to produce the letter Mr Holmes had not got it Mr Harper propoaeato pat in a copy Mr Holmes objected unless the posting of the letter was proved The dork who posted the letter was sent fra and witness continued I never sent Desborough a private memorandum respecting the accounts On June 27 he saw me after he had had the acoounts returned to him He said I thought might have induced yon- to amend the accounta showing me your private debtor for I said certainly I should do nothing of the sort The accounts had been made ont in accordance with the arrangement and I could not alter them He replied WeU I suppose I must do the best I can I am 4500 out of my reckoning but I must arrange it when we had concluded our conversation about money matters he asked me about the other shipments and arranged that we should put their wheat through a odd blast machine and ship it for I did not-see Desborough again till the mlalig of creditors I waa surprised to receive notice that I was a creditor and attended to see why I was The accounts showed a debit tetenaw against Desborough and Crerar but nothing to the debit of Deshorough I found he had put the Grain Agency down as hia creditors for 41700 At the second meeting I fonnd that he had altered the amount to 41850 11s 6d Coming away from the meeting I told him he knew I had made the advances to the firm against their wheat He said I knew you were under a misapprehension and considered you were making advances to the firm but I did not oorrect yon I knew from your letters and conversation that you would not make uncovered advances to He said: When I came to your office last I intended to explain everything but when I got there I wae too ashamed He repeated the statement he had made at the meeting that it would not affect Mr Crerar as the Bank of New Zealand had guaranteed him He said that Mr Hanna of the Bank of New Zealand had the account we had in and that he had told Mr Hanna that we had advanced him personally 4600 and that he had not corrected that statement till hia meeting of creditors He asked for another copy of the account I arid Come into the office with He walked into my private office and I called Mr Cooke onr accountant I asked Mr Oookfl and him one or two questions with reference to an interview Desbraongh had had with Mr Cooke Mr appeaxed to me to prevaricate and I rather warmly I said "Surely you led me tobelievethatyou were obtaining the money from me for the He said "No I did not put it that I aid You quite understood I was making the advances to the firm and not to you" Ho replied We were talking at cross purposes You thought I was getting tho maniw for the firm but I wanted it for myseu I knew from your manner that you would not let me have money on my own I said "But you quite knew that the advances I was making wore for tho He said Yes for the firm not for myself I knew tfoit you thought you wore making the advances for the firm you did not grap that I
