The Affairs of Chaffey Bros. (BY TELEGRAPH.) MELBOURNE, May 1. The Liquidators' report on the affairs of Chaffey Bros. Ltd., has been issued, and some startling disclosures are made. The report states that from 1892 to 1894, further capital was acquired by the issue of deben tures to the amount of £114,900, at a total cost of £28.395. The first issue of £100,000 was obtained at the expense of £18,239. but the second portion, £14,900, cost £10155. or 68 per cent to float. Owing largely to the meagre proportion of paid-up capital actually received in cash the company became burdened with a weight of interest, making it practically impossible for it to succeed. At the date of the company's suspension the interest chhrged was about £27.500 per annum, and the current ex penses were about £18,008, exclusive of any provision for depreciation. In order to raise funds the expedient was adopted of pledging for advances the mortgages executed by the purchasers of land, the public subsequently ...
