Baum 4V Co., wholesale liquor dealers, is excit ing considerable comment in business and, other circles. An inventory of the concern's assets discloses but $3900 worth of property? while the liabilities ere nearly 130,000. It is said that Mr. Baum offers to pay his creditors twenty cents on the dollar of his indebtedness and that the books of the concern have been hidden or made way with. The old gentleman, Mr. Baum, always tanks 1 high here among those who knew him, but it has been generally understood that for the past two years he has been financially embarrassed. Tho indebtedness here is only $1300, due to the Manhattan Bank, and secured to that 'institution The principal creditorsre Freiberg i Wcr'ium, of Cincinnati, who, it is un derated, werc4Mr. Baum'a financial backers, and that firm's claims amount to $4G,OO0 or upwards. The remainder of the debts arc due to firms of various cities North, extending west to San Francisco, California, and east to the Atlantic coast.
