ONTARIO SILVER WORKS

Humberstone, Ontario


A special despatch from Humberstone, Ont., states that as a result of the new tariff that town is going to lose its principal industry, the Ontario Silver Works, established there on account of natural gas advantages. The company have established a branch in Muncie, Ind., where natural gas is also obtainable, and since the change in the tariff orders have been canceled in the cutlery department at Humberstone, and as soon as the goods on hand have been completed the plant will be removed to Muncie, throwing 50 men out of employment. The competition of England and Germany, always keen rivals in cutlery products, is assigned as the cause.

TORONTO ELECTRO-PLATERS' EXHIBITION

The members of the Toronto branch, American Electro-Platers' Society, conducted a social event on Thursday evening, March 26th. 1914, in Occident Hall, Toronto, which was in every detail a credit to the society and the craft. The entertainment was preceded by an exhibition of some very beautiful and skilful work done by the members and of supplies used in the various branches of the art. Some of the principal exhibitors were:

Mr. Emil Nordblom, foreman plater for the Standard Silverware Go., Toronto. Mr. Nordblom's display consisted of splendid examples of silver deposit work on glass, also specimens of metallized non-metallic articles such as roses, insects, a turkey's foot and lace, copper electrotypes of beautiful designs and finish, and relief work from both wax and plaster mold.

Mr. Robert Dermody, foreman plater for Roden Bros., silversmiths, Toronto, showed some wonderful specimens of galvanoplastic reproduction from wax molds. There were trophy shields in the various stages of completion and the master mold bronzed.

Mr. Don Sutherland of 39 Duchess St., Toronto, exhibited some very dainty and artistic panels in relief and finished in both copper and silver.

Mr. John Magill, foreman plater for the Standard Sanitary Co., Toronto, displayed a line of plumbers' supplies of the latest design beautifully finished in nickel.

Mr. John Young, foreman plater for the Fletcher Mfg. Co., Toronto, exhibited several soda fountain fixtures of rather unusual type, beautifully finished in silver and nickel with onyx trimmings. Some of Mr. Young's articles consisted of fixtures composed of several metals assembled to form one unit and plated together at the same time.

An exhibit which attracted great interest was that of Mr. Robert Anderson, foreman plater for the Canada Foundry Co. It consisted of a metallized baby's boot, also an egg and an apple processed in like manner and a large panel reproduction of Guido Reni's "Ascension of Christ", beautifully finished in antique copper. This piece is truly a study and an excellent copy. He also showed a small panel of St. Paul's Cathedral at Rome, and a copper reproduction of the home of his boyhood.

Mr. John Achison showed specimens of comparative nickel deposits, obtained from solutions made according to Dr. Adams' formula and from modern rapid nickel salts, also samples of the various salts and specimens of barrel plating and ball burnishing.

Mr. Ernest Coles, foreman for the Carton Plating Co., Toronto, exhibited several specimens of electrical fixtures finished in various attractive and artistic colors.

Through the kindness of Prof. W. Lash Miller of Toronto University, Mr. J. T. Burt-Gerrans and Mr. Morrison, who have acted as instructors to the A. E. S. class at the technical school during the past season, were permitted to exhibit the complete apparatus used in the laboratory. Furnaces, multi-voltmeters, shunts, retorts, miniature plating baths, chemical glassware, analytical balances, etc., were seen as in actual use. This exhibit was a perfect enlightenment to many who were sceptical as to the possibilities of technical education for the plater and the result of the demonstration is sure to bring about beneficial interest and increased attendance during future sessions.

Mr. W. W. Wells of Toronto exhibited an exceptionally full line of platers' supplies, buffs, rheostats, copper anodes and nickel anodes which had been bent, twisted, hammered and otherwise abused to show their malleability and freedom from gross impurities as well as proving correct casting conditions. Mr. Wells' exhibit also included specimens finished with Celluloid Zapon lacquer and others by the Rojas process. The exhibit was arranged by Mr. W. W. Wells, Jr.

The Canadian Hanson & Van Winkle Co.. had a very large and complete exhibit of plating supplies including multipolar dynamos, mechanical plating apparatus, polishing lathe hoods, rheostats, voltmeters, ammeters, brushes, polishing compounds, etc. The exhibit was arranged by and in charge of Mr. Rupert C. Bruce, manager of the company.

The space allotted the several exhibits proved to be much too small, but everyone present managed to obtain a view of the various displays and hear the explanatory lectures delivered by the respective exhibitors.

HERBERT T. MORRIS

675, Lansdowne Avenue, Toronto


GET LOOT WORTH $1,000

Automobile Bandits Rob Toronto, Can, Jewelry Store and Escape

Toronto, Can., July 28.–Early on Sunday morning the jewelry store of Herbert T. Morris, 675 Lansdowne Ave., was broken into by burglars who obtained watches and rings to the value of about $1,000.

The robbers broke the window with a heavy stone wrapped in cloth, and entered through the opening, clearing out the stock displayed in the window. As a rule these goods were put away in the safe every evening, but on this occasion were left in the window over night.

B. Fairthorne, a butcher, who happened to be passing in an automobile, heard the crash of the breaking glass, halted his car and saw three men emerge from the store with their plunder and run for an automobile about 100 yards distant, which they immediately started. He immediately gave chase and followed the robbers for a long distance, but finally lost track of them.

The car used by the burglars answers the description of one reported to the police as having been stolen Saturday afternoon. The robbers were apparently young men.

Four men, named Thomas Davidson, Herbert Spano, Louis Terano and Herbert Hickel, are under arrest in Toronto on suspicion of being concerned in recent jewelry robberies at the stores of Herbert Morris and Isadore Shoot & Co.
