'Spoiling the Spoilers', 1883. Mr Joseph Chamberlain is holding his Bankruptcy Bill as a Fraudulent Bankrupt and his 'advisor' worry about the implications. Recently, Chamberlain had introduced this Bill, the principal intention of which was to provide regulations for full and proper examination of insolvency applications. It was hoped that this would severely hamper the attempts by those intent on defrauding the public to escape justice by a declaration of bankruptcy. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 31, 1883.
