JOHN HOWARD

Manchester


TRIAL OF A MANCHESTER TRADESMAN

Mr. John Howard, silversmith, of Manchester, charged with having purchased stolen silver, was tried at Chester, on Friday, and acquitted. He had purchased one parcel of old silver, for which he gave the usual price. The witnesses relied on by the police of Stockport, who took great pains in getting up a case against Mr. Howard, were a couple of convicted felons, who told most improbable stories, and evidently perjured themselves.

JACOB SANDEMAN

Liverpool


In the matter of Jacob Sandeman, who has just made the big jewellery smash in Liverpool, we should like to know who is to blame the most, the debtor or the creditors. Sandeman commenced business about seven months ago, and he had hardly opened when the Brummagem men commenced to pile the goods on to him, notwithstanding that they knew what sort of gentleman he was. He now comes before them with liabilities £5,435, and assets on paper £728, or, in other words, a deficiency of £4,706.
