Everybody was surprised this
morning when a notice appeared
on the window of W. W. Condon's
jewelry and music house, to the ef effect
fect effect that he had made a deed of as assignment
signment assignment in favor of Albert
Wright as assignee.
Mr. Wright told a Star reporter
this morning that Mr. Condon's
business was not in as bad a condi condition
tion condition as it m'ight be, and that he
had ample resources to more than
pay all he owed, but there would
have to be time to collect in.
He said Mr. Condon's creditor's
were crowding him, and he could
not get what the people owed
him. So something must be done
to protect himself and others.
Mr. Wright says there will be
ample to pay off all liabilities
and then have a handsome sum
left to Mr. Condon's credit.
The deed of assignment was ex executed
