DETROIT

Last week Unger Bros., New York, began suit in the Wayne Circuit Court against F. G. Smith, Jr., for $500, assumsit. It is understood that several more suits will be commenced shortly, backed by John Baumont, of this city. F. G. Smith was a member of F. G. Smith, Sons & Co., F. G. Smith & Sons, and Smith, Sturgeon & Co., jewelers. The first firm failed, the last named being their successors. Recently the Smiths retired from active participation in the business and are now engaged in the insurance line. A number of accounts were left unpaid and the plan now is to get a judgment and levy on their present interest in Smith, Sturgeon & Co., which consists of stock.

Eugene Unger’s Residence Entered by Thieves

Newark, N. J., July 30.—At an early hour this morning when a domestic in the house of Eugene Unger, of Unger Bros., manufacturing jewelers, who resides at 165 Clinton Ave., went to the kitchen, she found the door open and articles strewn about the dining-room floor in great confusion. Mr. Unger was at once roused and he found that burglars had been in the house.

From the sideboard one and a half-dozen solid silver tablespoons, a half dozen teaspoons, a butter and pie knife, a butter dish and a valuable silver handle umbrella were taken, but a large quantity of other solid silverware was left behind. These articles bore evidence of having been handled, but why they were not appropriated is a mystery, as each piece was stamped “sterling silver.” The articles stolen are valued at $150.

The burglars gained admittance to the house by prying open a rear cellar window with a sharp chisel, after which a hole five inches square was cut in a solid oak door leading to the kitchen, and the bolts drawn. Once in the kitchen, access was had to the whole lower floor. Two rooms on the second floor of the house were ransacked and the contents of closets and drawers scattered about, but little of value is missing. Mr. Unger notified the police this morning and detectives were at once put on the case. It is supposed the burglars were frightened away before their work was completed.
