;eor?e M. I.ooley Turns 0r HI Stork
for IIIh Creditor' ltcnpfit.
George M. Lo'osley, lealer in china,
glass and (jueensware at 1609 Second
avenue, last evening turned over his
stock to P. I,. Mitchell on a bill of
sale for the benefit of his creditors.
Mr. Mitchell proposes to clear the
entire stock out at cost without de
lay, his purpose being to remodel the
store, which he owns. Mr. Looslev
will, at Mr. Mitchell's reijuest, re
main in charge of the stock until it
is disposed of. Mr. Looslev has felt
the stringency of money matters
perhaps quite a severely, if not
more so. than any other class
of merchants. He has realized
the dull times since Jan. 1. when his
business began to fall behind and
each month it has fallen behind tho
corresponding month of a year be
fore, yet he has kept up in
hopes of better times, until he got to
that point where his only recourse
lay in the step he has taken. The
crockery trade feels the dullness of
the present situation more than oth
er line of business pursuit because
it includes articles which the major
ity of people are able to get along
without, and when they begin to
economize they cut these first?
