Edward W. Fink, the ex-bookkeeper for the Mermod-Jaccard Jewelry Co., was last week held for the Grand Jury on five charges and his bond fixed at $500 in each case. Fink waived a preliminary hearing. His attorney made a motion to dismiss the case on a technicality, but it was overruled. Fink is charged with taking jewelry from the Mermod-Jaccard jewelry store.

The 12 striking plate printers formerly with the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co. have issued a statement to the effect that the trouble was caused by the firm’s employing a non-union workman, who refused to join their organization. They claim that wages are lower in St. Louis than in most large cities. Up to the present time they say they have been unable to effect a settlement.

The auction sale now being held at the old stand of the Merrick, Walsh & Phelps Jewelry Co. by the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co. is undoubtedly affecting the trade of the rest of the retail dealers.

The stockholders of the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co. will soon vote on a proposition to increase the capital stock of the company. The present capital is $500,000 and it will be increased to $800,000. The voting will be done July 3. The recent absorption of the Merrick, Walsh & Phelps Jewelry Co. is the cause of the increase.

ST. LOUIS JEWELERS PRONOUNCE THE PEARLS TO BE OF LITTLE OR NO VALUE

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 10.—So many alleged pearls from the wilds of Arkansas are arriving in the city that the St. Louis correspondent of The Jewelers’ Circular called on some of the leading jewelers this week to obtain their views in regard to value of the ‘‘finds.”

A. L. Steinmeyer, of the E. Jaccard Jewelry Co., said: “Yes, there are pearls coming from Arkansas, but the number of real marketable stones is small. This week we received one beautiful specimen, but that was really the only genuine one this week, though we receive from 8 to 10
packages a day. One of the attractive features of this sort of work is that is costs a firm like ours a whole lot of postage stamps to return worthless stones to their owners.”

Goodman King, of the Mermod & Jaccard Jewelry Co., said: “Almost every day we receive from six to a dozen packages of pearls and alleged pearls from Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas, those from the last State, however, being small. As a rule the specimens sent us are worthless. It is but occasionally that a pearl with any approach to the proper shape, luster and skin is received, that is, measured by the standard of Oriental pearls. We have purchased a few of them, but they necessarily will have to be sold at prices under Oriental pearls of the same size. The excitement in the adjacent pearl beds has been on for the past 90 days, but we have received occasional specimens from the same territory for the past three years. From what I have heard the beds along the White River, Arkansas, from which most of the pearls have been received, are practically exhausted, and the pearl seekers have gone to other fields.”

"That is the handsomest vinaigrette in this city,” said Mr. Bolt, manager of the repairing department at the Mermod-Jaccard Jewelry Company the other day, as he wrapped up the bijou and passed it over the counter. Miss Orth is the owner of this approved scent bottle, which is of English cut-glass, long and tapering in shape, square-cut at the sides, but with a rounding bottom cut in long rayed fans, the hipped top similarly finished and capped with a silver lid. At glance seemingly like many another long scent-bottle, but on examination easily recognized as unique in elegance and costly in workmanship, a fit trifle for the fair hands of an elegantly dressed woman in idle moments.

Leading St. Louis Jewelry House to Establish a New York Branch

Goodman King, president of the Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewelry Co., St. Louis, Mo., was in New York, last week, where he completed arrangements for the establishment of a New York branch for his house. Mr. King has just closed the lease— for a term of five years—of the premises at 400 Fifth Ave., where he will establish a distinctly up-to-date retail establishment, which will carry practically the same lines as are handled by the house in St. Louis.

The premises, which include several floors, will be fitted up on the Parisian plan. No counters will be used, but the goods will be displayed to customers on tables in special parlors devoted to particular lines. On the parlor floor of the house will be a series of rooms, the first one devoted
to cabinets and silverware, the next to gems and jewelry, the third to the art department, the fourth to silver hollow ware, and the last to the mail order department. On the upper floors will be the stationery and shipping departments, and also the diamond mounting and repairing factory of the concern.

The company’s lease dates from March 1, but arrangements have now been made to begin the renovation and changing of the premises to meet the requirements of the business, and it is hoped that the concern will be established in its new quarters some time between April 1 and April 15.

The Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewelry Co. is one of the largest and oldest houses in the trade, the present concern practically being the successors of three great firms — Mermod & Jaccard, the Eugene Jaccard Jewelry Co. and the Merrick, Walsh, Phelps Co., all of St. Louis.
