LEDGER ST. JEAN
116, Ontario Street, Montreal
A quantity of valuable plated goods was stolen from the show window of Mr. Ledger St. Jean's jewelry establishment, No. 116 Ontario Street, Montreal, in the early hours of a recent Sunday morning. A doctor and another gentleman passing the store at half-past three o'clock noticed that the large plate-glass window had been smashed, and the few articles left had been disarranged in a manner to indicate that a quantity of valuables had been taken. They called up the proprietor and later the police were engaged on the case. Antoine Lemarche, one of the men arrested, on suspicion of having committed the crime, has been recognized as a man the police have wanted for a year, on a charge of highway robbery committed on Craig Street. Mr. St. Jean carried insurance on his stock with the Dominion Burglary Guarantee Company, which will cover his loss.
