1. The pendency of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy precludes consideration of a second voluntary petition in respect of the same debts. P. 269 U. S. 122.

2. The district court, on application for discharge in a voluntary proceeding in bankruptcy, may take judicial notice of the pendency, in its own records, of an earlier like application, and of its own motion, because of such pendency, may refuse the later application insofar as the same debts are concerned. P. 269 U. S. 123.

294 F. 867 affirmed.

Certiorari to a judgment of the circuit court of appeals affirming an order of the district court which denied in part an application for a discharge in bankruptcy. 290 F. 609.
