Saunders, Lorie & Co., manufacturing jewelers of Toronto, are quietly making preparations for removing to their new factory at 67 Adelaide Street West. Mr. Lorie say's he don't propose to move until everything in the new premises that can possibly be got ready beforehand, is thoroughly in order, and when they do make a start the real moving will be a very short business. From the looks of the new machinery and labor-saving appliances already in place, there is no doubt but that the firm will have one of the largest and best equipped jewelry factories in America when they get finally settled down in their new home.

Source: The Trader & Canadian Jeweller - May 1900


Saunders, Lorie & Co. are now comfortably settled down in their new factory, 67 Adelaide Street West, where they will be pleased to see any Canadian jeweler who may pay them a visit. Mr. Lorie says that he has just purchased a large lot of choice Havana cigars which he keeps for any friends in the trade who drop in to see them. Their new factory is certainly worth a visit of inspection.

MOSES COCHENTHALER

Montreal

Moses Cochenthaler, Montreal, has been made the official jeweler to Lady Aberdeen as an acknowledgment of the skill shown in resetting and cleaning the jewels of Her Excellency, recently entrusted to him for that purpose.

Source: The Jewelers' Circular and Horological Review - 11th October 1893



The Proceeds of a Jewelry Store Theft went to Charity

Montreal, Can., Feb. 6.—A couple of years ago several thousand dollars' worth of jewelry was stolen from Cochenthaler's establishment. No trace could be made of the goods, and the loss was eventually paid by the Dominion Burglary Guarantee Co., with whom they were insured. Recently John Kiernan, a night watchman on St. James St., was arrested for robbery, and he confessed that he had stolen the jewelry. He further stated that about a year ago he had confessed to the robbery to Father Laurin, of Notre Dame church; that the latter had at first told him to return the goods to the owner, but when informed that the loss had been paid, he had ordered him to dispose of the stolen articles for charity, which had been done, the proceeds going to the Indian school's fund. Father Laurin states that Kiernan did not mention the name of the owner. The Guarantee Co. will likely take action to recover the proceeds, and an interesting legal suit will be the result.

FELTUS & Co.

Stansted, Quebec


The Strange Freaks of J. G. Feltus

Halifax. N. S., Jan. 28.–A week or so ago, a young man named J. G. Feltus applied to the military authorities in this city for admission to the British army. He was of such perfect physique that the authorities urged him to join the Life Guards, but the young man preferred attaching himself to the Royal Artillery and did so. A few days later he told the following strange story:

He is the managing member of the wholesale jewelry firm of Feltus & Co., of Stansted, Quebec, and is subject to peculiar mental delusions. He says: "One year ago last September I left home with $3,000 worth jewelry, became demented, sold the goods and remained away from home and spent the money freely. The spell wore off, I traveled home and after convincing my father that I had not acted dishonestly, was again taken into the confidence of the firm. But a short time ago I was again seized with the same trouble and was possessed with the idea that I must become a soldier, and now find I am one."

Feltus has already had enough of soldier life, but his relatives will not purchase his release for a few months,hoping thus to cure him of his strange freaks.

Inside Door of Safe Foiled Safe Crackers in Canada

Perth. Ont,, July 27.–Burglars entered the jewelry store of M. G. Hicks, about 3 o'clock this morning. They made an entrance by the back door, cutting out a panel and drawing bolts. A hole was drilled in the safe and the door was blown out, but nothing was taken out of the safe, as the inside door could not be opened. Some valuable watches and jewelry were damaged by the explosion. About $300 worth of jewelry was taken out of the store. No clue to the burglars has been found as yet.

J.W. GIBSON

Rondeau, Ontario


The store occupied by J. W. Gibson, jeweler, Rondeau, Ont., was destroyed by fire on the 23rd October. The building, which was owned by T. C. Ford, furniture dealer, was insured, but Mr. Gibson had no insurance on his stock, and will lose heavily. Such experiences as these should teach people that insurance is not a luxury, but a necessity, and that no prudent business man can afford to do without it.

C.F. DYKE & Co.

Yarmouth, Nova Scotia


C. F. Dyke & Co., of Yarmouth, N.S., opened their new store In the Studio Block last month. The building was formerly occupied by Porter & Robbins, but has been greatly changed to suit the purposes of the new occupants. It was given a thorough renovation and decorated in handsome style. Not quite as large as the former premises, it is admirably adapted to jewelry lines, and with a very complete stock presented a most attractive appearance for the holiday season. A completely equipped optical department is another feature of the new store that reflects great credit on this enterprising firm.

O.R. STEADMAN

Thorold, Ontario


AUTO BANDITS ESCAPE

Men Who Robbed Canadian Jewelry Store Are Caught, but Get Away

Toronto, Canada, August 1.–Burglars operating in automobiles broke into the jewelry store of O. R. Steadman at Thorold, Out., last Monday night by cutting the lock of the door with some sharp instrument and secured watches and jewelry to the value of about $700.

They also robbed a general store, taking some $200 worth of groceries, etc., and escaped before the robberies were detected.

The police of the district were notified and the force at St. Catharines kept a lookout for an automobile which had been stolen. Early in the morning a patrolman saw the missing car and held up the occupants at the point of a revolver. He entered the car and was taking it to the police station when the men suddenly threw him out and drove off.

The car was followed for some distance until, turning a corner it skidded into a ditch and was captured, but the occupants escaped. Part of the jewelry, along with the other goods, was found in the car. The policeman stated that there were seven men in the car.

BANDITS GET GEMS

Montreal Wholesale Jewelry Concern Visited by Crooks Who Steal Diamonds Worth About $25,000

Montreal, Can., July 22.–Two bandits posing as customers walked into the wholesale jewelry establishment of Appleby & Co., in this city, yesterday, and after engaging a member of the concern in conversation struck him on the head and stole loose diamonds worth about $25,000.

The bandits entered the Appleby establishment representing themselves as diamond merchants and asked to see a number of good stones. M. Appleby, a junior member of the firm, who was alone in the shop, took them into his private office. After a consignment of fine stones had been brought from the vault the bandits hit Mr. Appleby over the head with a sand bag, gagged him and tied him up, decamping with the jewels.

To prevent immediate discovery of Mr. Appleby, they put up the sign "back in half an hour" in his office window. Mr. Appleby was discovered by his father, the senior member of the firm, an hour after the attack.
