DEATH OF WM. K. McNAUGHT

Prominent Canadian Jeweler, Watch Case Maker and Army Officer Passes Away

Toronto, Can., Feb. 5.–The death of Col. William K. McNaught, C. M. G., president and general manager of the American Watch Case Co., of Toronto, occurred on last Sunday at his residence, 614 Huron St. He was in his 74th year. He returned last week from a business trip to New York suffering from bronchitis, which combined with a weak heart caused his death.

He was born in Fergus, Ont., and began his business career with Robert Wilkes & Co., wholesale jewelers, of Toronto, severing his connection with that firm in 1877 to establish the wholesale jewelry business of Zimmerman, McNaught & Lowe. In 1885 he sold out his interest in that company to organize the American Watch Case Co., of which he became president and general manager in 1904. Notwithstanding the demands of his business upon his time and attention, Col. McNaught was very active in public affairs. He was president of the Canadian National Exhibition from 1901 to 1905; president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association in 1896-8; chairman of the Tariff Commission from 1899 to 1905; a member of the Ontario Hydro-Electric Power Commission since 1906, a director of the National Consumptive Sanitarium Association and the British Empire League; chairman of the Liquor License Board of Toronto in 1905-6, and a member of the executive committee of the Canadian Reconstructive Association.

Col. McNaught was elected to the Ontario Legislature as Conservative representative of North Toronto in 1906 and continued to hold that position until 1914. During his term of service he was instrumental in securing the adoption of a number of important measures and was a strong supporter of advanced temperance legislation.

He was deeply interested in military matters and, when a young man, served in the Queen's Own Rifles and was afterwards an officer in the 12th York Rangers. He won many prizes for rifle and revolver shooting.

At the outbreak of the war he offered his services to the Government and was attached to the headquarters staff with the rank of honorary colonel. He did splendid services as a member of the Special Land Transport Committee as well as in connection with recruiting work. Col. McNaught raised $100,000 for a battery of armored cars and superintended the construction of cars and the organization of the Eaton Machine Gun Brigade. He was a keen sportsman and was at one time vice president of the Toronto Rowing Club and president of the National Amateur Lacrosse Association.

In recognition of his notable work in reorganizing the Canadian National Exhibition he was the recipient of a silver service at a public banquet, and on resigning the presidency was made a life member of the association.

Col. McNaught is survived by his widow, three sons, and one daughter.

OSCAR POTHIER

177, Cascades Street, St. Hyacinthe, Quebec

ROBBERS RANSACK JEWELLER'S STORE

Experienced Thieves Visit St. Hyacinthe Establishment During Night

St. Hyacinthe, Que., August 3.– Burglars forced an entrance Into the premises of Oscar Pothier, oldest jewellery establishment in this city, early this morning, and made their escape with a stock of merchandise valued at nearly $5,000. An automobile jack was used to lift and smash the steel bars reinforcing the read door of the store, and police expressed the opinion today that the burglars responsible for the robbery were experienced hands.

The Oscar Pothier jewellery store is situated at 177, Cascades Street. The burglary is believed to have been committed between four and five o'clock, as V. Kakos, restaurateur and proprietor of the building, made a round at 3.30 o'clock this morning and found everything in order.

Articles of little value were either left untouched or thrown on the floor of the establishment and everything was found upset upon the opening of the store this morning.

Chief Adjutor Bouggeois, head of the St. Hyacinthe police is now investigating the case together with officers of the Provincial Police force. Several finger prints were carefully examined by the investigating sleuths, and also the automobile jack that was left behind by the burglars.

T. & J. SMALLWOOD

1076, Bloor Street West, Toronto

The jewelry store of T. & J. Smallwood, 1076 Bloor St., West, Toronto, was robbed of diamond rings valued at about $1,000 on Sept. 16 by an unknown man, who entered the store and asked to be shown some necklaces. He was shown a number of rings by Thomas Smallwood, but took exception to the quality of the goods, alleging that some of the stones were imperfect. Mr. Smallwood offered to procure others in the city which might prove more satisfactory, and arranged for an interview later in the day. This took place and the customer again objected to one of the stones in the necklace which he said contained a flaw. Mr. Smallwood stepped to the rear of the store to replace it, and as soon as his back was turned the visitor secured 23 rings exposed on a tray. On Mr. Smallwood's return the thief asked to be excused for a minute while he went to a store next door to make a purchase. That was the last seen of him.

F. CRAKE

New Westminster, British Columbia



Image
F. Crake - New Westminster, BC - 1888

Formerly Manager of the Watch Department of Savage & Lyman.

Clockmaker to the Pacific Section of the Canadian Pacific Railway.


F. Crake, the well-known watchmaker and jeweler of New Westminster, B. C., tells a singular story. A gentleman dropped into Mr. Crake’s shop the other day and left an old-fashioned watch to be repaired. On opening the case Mr. Crake found that he had repaired the same watch exactly thirty years ago, in a town in one of the midland counties in England. Mr. Crake's name was scratched inside with the date and year when it had last been in his hands. That the watch should again come into Mr. Crake’s hands for a similar attention after a lapse of thirty years, and in a country thousands of miles distant from where he had last seen it, is an occurrence of more than ordinary interest.
