JOHNSTON BROS.

2359, St. Catherine Street, Montreal

Johnston Bros. - Montreal - 1905


No trace has yet been found of the $15,000 worth of diamonds stolen from the jewelry store of Johnston Bros., St. Catherine St., Montreal, three weeks ago. Circulars have been sent out to all the police departments in Canada and the United States, giving a full description of the stolen diamonds, but so far none of them have been recovered. Photographs of jewelry thieves who are known to be at large have been sent to Montreal by Boston, New York, Chicago and other cities, but the clerks who were in the store at the time the robbery is supposed to have been committed have been unable to identify them. An advertisement has been published in the papers offering a reward of one-third the value of the diamonds for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the thieves, or for the recovery of the stolen diamonds. There is a suspicion that the thieves have gone to Europe.

GEORGE COOPER

Toronto


Almost every retail jeweler in Canada knows George Cooper, the former engraver of Toronto. George went along with his Company in the "Queen's Own," and was unfortunately wounded in the battle with the Indians under Poundmaker at Cut Knife Creek. His many friends in the trade will be glad to know that George fought like a hero, and that although his wound (through the thigh) was a severe one, he is now almost convalescent.

Source: The Trader - July 1885


George E. Cooper, well known to the trade as an expert engraver on his own account, died on Jan. 24 in the General Hospital, Toronto, aged 55 years. He had a large number of friends in sporting and military circles.
