CILMAK BKOS., iTol.rietorB, BOftoa --'--.......      - due Mr Wlthorell would take them up, of course adding Interest and allowing them to run for various periods. As the years went on, Ritchie's notes glVi'U to many creditors began to accumulate and become troublesome, at least his creditors did. His pleasure trips became more frequent, and his being away so much caused his business to suKer. Finally Mr Wltherell held so many notes that he would not allow Ritchie to have any more coal. Then his business, once large and prosperous, dwindled to a mere commission agency. He would get an order and buy his coal from some East Boston dealer to supply his customer. So his biiBlness went on for about two years, then came the crash. Ritchie failed June 18, 181)2, for nearly $60,000, with assets in proved claims amounting to nearly $40,000, and some real estate property, which is atlU a bone of contention, as the oredltors oannot get hold of It. Among Ritchie's creditors are a large dry goods house and a large Jewelry firm of Boston, also several East Boston ooal dealers. O. D. Wltherell Is the largest creditor. Where Is Bllot Ritchie? Quite a large number of Boston people are asking this question. 1^ It appears that Ritchie, who was once a well-known coal dealer in East Boston, suddenly and mysteriously left the city a week ago, and has not since been heard from. Ha went away without letting his oredltors, his intimate friends or even his wife know of his going. In many respects Ritchie's, was a remarkable career. His first wife was the daughter of a rich Boston man, Nehe-mlah Gibson, and she brought her husband considerable money. For many years Ritchie did a large business, and he lived In clover. He had excellent credit and was regarded as a most successful man. But misfortune came. He failed In business, tried to go through the Insolvency court, was cited Into the poor debtors' court, was sent to Charles st Jail, and finally, crushed by defeat, afraid to face the music, he disappeared. Spooulatlon Is rife as to his whereabouts. Some think that he has gone to Canada, others think that he is in hiding nearer home. No one knows Just how he was fixed as regards money. One rumor has it that he has plenty of real estate put away, upon which he can realize at will, the property being kept back from his cred,-Itcra. Another ruinor,ls that he is pr.5t-ty hard up.       _ It Is stated that shortly before he skipped he was borrowing small sums of money to carry hliu along from day to day. Just previous to his sudden going a's^y he was engaged soliciting advertise-rrents for the Banker and Tradssraan, a trade paper, and the day before he was missed he drew ?5 which was due to him for services and a week before that he received some $25 on account, so that If these sums were all ho had he oannot have gone far from Boston, for Ritchie, as one of his friends remarked to the reporter, "iB not the man to live on crackers and cheese If he can help It." Ritchie always liked to live well and he was troubled considerably while In Charles st jail as to his food, and got tired of tho everlasting soup that was served to him as a poor debtor, and although some of his friends sent him luxuries he had no mind to risk a second arrest, and so fled from the scene of his triumphs and failures. HiB friends say that he will come back when he gets his head again. So far he has done nothing of a criminal nature, but It Is believed that he has gone crazy over his troubles. PJIlot Ritchie Isvbetween BO end G2 years of age. He Is a man of highly rervous temperament and socially a good fellow. He always took things easy, even at the worst. He was an excellent entertainer and knew how to tell a story. He would have been a success as an actor, but as a coal dealer he has turned out a failure. Then, too, his friends say that he had a big heart. Ho was always kind to his help. Even In slack times he would keep on his full force rather than discharge any one. He was well liked In business by merchants and customers. It is reported also that he used to give away a great deal of coal in small quantities to poor people.      _ Ritchie married 25 years^gb the daughter of old Nehemlah Gibson, once one of East Boston's prominent citizens, president of the East Boston ferry company, alderman for several terms, feri-y dii'ec-tor, president of the Maverick national bank, while Asa P. Pol ter was vice president, and a man who amassed a fortune of nearly $200,i;00. Mr Gibson, Eliot j-iitchle's fatber-ln-law, died about 12 years ago, and left ills property to be divided equally between a son and a daughter, the latter Ritchie's wife. Some time before Nehemlah GlbHon's death, Ritchie formed a partner.sblp with Charles Gibson, the son, under tho firm name .of Nehemlah Gibson & Co. They did a large business with tiig.'i and steamers, in addition to a large family trade. Then, later on, Charles Gibson sold out to Ritchie, but the latter still continued doing business under the old firm name. Then a few years after her father'.s death, Mrs RltcUle died ^id left all her property to her husband. Four or five years later Ritchie married .a Mr.s Baker, the divorced wife of Capt Baker, who owned a tow boat. Before the marriage Capt Baker had attached Ritchie's property, in a suit against him for the alienation of his �i\'lfc's affections. The case, hoiyever, iie\'-.-r came into court, as it was uiuler.-^tood that Ritchie paid liberally to have the suit abandoned. After his marriage with IMrs Baker, itltcbie traveled through Kiuoiic aii'i all over this country, taking his wife with him. Mr.'j Baker had a daughter, a rather fashionable young wninun, who lived with the Rltcble.s on Wyoming st, Roxbury. Ritchie wa.s in buslncpK at 2", Lewl.s st, E.ast Boston. He had a bi-uilful and luxuriously appointed home at :i ^\�yum-Ing st, and this hou.'^e, until recently, was in his wife's name. When the trouble  ;si', worth about $lii,OM, ovor to the .Markei national bank, which claimed to be a preferred creditor.
