JAMES R. HARPER

Montreal


On the night of May 5, died James R. Harper, of Montreal. Of late he had been in very poor health, and for more careful treatment had gone to the city hospital where he died.

The deceased gentleman was well known by his long connection with the jewelry business, extending over a period of twenty-five years. His specialty was the manufacture of sporting medals. When the retail trade of Montreal was in its infancy, he was a partner with Joseph Street. Just before his death, he sold out his business to R. Hemsley. Mr. Harper was a member of the Montreal Hunt, and a warm supporter of all kinds of athletic sports. He was well known and esteemed for his remarkable geniality and good-feeling which prompted him to lend his assistance in any case when appealed to.

WILLIAM WILSON

170, Queen Street, Toronto


Toronto, Can., May 31.—An unusual number of thefts and frauds in connection with the jewelry trade have occurred latterly. On the 27th, Peter Sheridan, in order to secure the gold watches displayed in a tray in the window of William Wilson’s jewelry store, 170 Queen St., W., smashed the plate glass with a heavy stone. Before he could carry out his design the proprietor seized him and handed him over to the police. When arraigned in the Police Court he admitted his felonious intention and pleaded guilty. The prisoner was remanded.

WOLFE BALLOTS

York Street, Toronto


Toronto, Can., May 31.— On the 24th, James Gourdier and a companion entered the shop of Wolfe Ballots, York St., and asked to see some rings. When inspecting the goods, Gourdier slipped a ring into his pocket. The proprietor, who detected the theft, went for a policeman and had Gourdier arrested. The case came up for trial on the 31st, when the counsel for the accused urged that he was under the influence of liquor at the time. As he had a good record he was allowed to go on suspended sentence.

S.E. SHEYCK

125, York Street, Toronto


Toronto, Can., May 31.— The premises of S. E. Sheyck, 125 York St., dealer in cheap jewelry, were broken into by burglars on the night of the 27th and large quantities of watches, chains and rings of the quality usually sold by traveling peddlers carried off. The thieves, who evidently fancied they had made a big haul, were disgusted on ascertaining the real value of their booty, and threw it away. A number of the stolen articles were found next morning scattered on the street, and the remainder were found the following evening in the rear of a wholesale warehouse where the disappointed burglars had apparently abandoned them.
