ROBERT BOWERS (I & II)

CHESTER CITY PLATE, ETC.

TO THE EDITOR

Sir, Mr. Stanley Ball has, I think, fallen into error in attributing the fitting up of St. Peter's clock in 1813 to Alderman Henry Bowers. Hemingway says it was the work of Alderman R. Bowers.

Alderman Robert Bowers was Sheriff in 1798 and Mayor in 1811. His trade was that of a silversmith, and it is much more likely that the work would be carried out by him rather than by a druggist, as Alderman Henry Bowers was.
H. B. D.

CHESTER CITY REGALIA

TO THE EDITOR
Sir, I am much obliged to your correspondent H. B. D. for pointing out that the fitting up of St. Peter's Church clock in 1813 was under the supervision of Alderman Robert Bowers and not, as stated in my article, by Alderman Henry Bowers. On referring to my notes from the City Records, I find that the resolution of the Council states "It is ordered that the sum of £10 shall be given out of the treasury towards St. Peter's clock and paid to Alderman Bowers." This would, as your correspondent states, be Alderman Robert Bowers, the silversmith, who was elected an alderman on the 24th October, 1810. Mr. Henry Bowers, the druggist was not elected an alderman until the 12th August, 1814.
Yours, etc., T. STANLEY BALL.

CHARLES WRIGHT BOTSFORD

Manchester


$2,000 Divorce Damages

In the Divorce Court, Mr. Matthew Buchanan, wholesale confectioner, Manchester, was awarded a decree nisi on the grounds of his wife's misconduct with Mr. C. W. Botsford, a member of Manchester City Council, and a married man.

The Buchanans and Botsfords were close friends and spent their holidays at Loch Lomond together in 1903. Shortly afterwards, on the return home, after a short absence, petitioner found his wife missing. In a letter, respondent announced she intended to leave him, and said that nothing would induce her to come back. She had loved the co-respondent for a long time.

Petitioner said he had not the slightest suspicion of any undue intimacy between his wife and Mr. Botsford; the pair had been traced to Sydney.

The jury awarded petitioner a decree nisi and £2,000 damages against co-respondent. Co-respondent has carried on business at Manchester as goldsmith and jeweller.

LISTER HORSFALL

14-16, Corn Market, Halifax


NEW CONSTABLE'S CAPTURE

THREE MEN ARRESTED


A new constable, named Jennings, of the Halifax police, has made a highly satisfactory debut, and has been instrumental in securing the capture of three alleged cracksmen. Patrolling the corn market a little after mid-night Jennings detected some unusual noise, which caused him to place an ear against the shutters of the establishment of Mr. Lister Horsfall, jeweller and goldsmith. Then he went to a street telephone and rang up the head police office. In a brief time there was a cordon of policemen round the jeweller's premises. Several constables and a sergeant ascended to the roof, where it was found that an entrance had been effected. The men had ripped up slates, and, tying a stout rope round a beam thus exposed, slid down the rope into an upper room. They were attempting to break through the masonry over a door communicating with the shop, and to shut out all noise, when the door at the head of the stairs suddenly opened and bull's-eye lights were flashed upon them and they were overwhelmed by policemen. George Morris, 66, optician; Thomas Smith, 45, and Harry Watson, 39, labourers, were on Friday remanded for a week. The jeweller's stock in the safe is said to be of the value of nearly £40,000.

...... WATSON

Market Street, Manchester


Robbery of a Jeweller's Shop at Manchester

A young man, named Charles Wood, was brought before the city magistrates at Manchester, on Thursday charged with being implicated in a robbery of the shop of Mr Watson, silversmith and jeweller, Market-street. About two o'clock on Thursday morning a policeman observed four men loitering about the street, and he and some other officers went towards them, when the men ran away. About 20 minutes afterwards the officers heard a noise in Market-street, and on approaching Mr. Watson's shop they discovered that the shutters had been prised open at the bottom. The prisoner was standing opposite, and was immediately taken into custody; but another man who was near, although pursued, made good his escape. On examination it was found that four gold watches, worth about 50l, had been taken out of the window, through a pane of glass, which had been broken at the bottom. The prisoner, who say,s he comes from Sheffield, but is well known to associate with thieves in Manchester, was remanded till Monday.

RALPH ISAACS

St. George's Crescent North, Liverpool


EXTENSIVE ROBBERY

On Sunday week, the premises of Ralph Isaacs, silversmith and jeweller, St. George's Crescent North, Liverpool, were entered by thieves, and robbed of eight valuable gold watches, nearly one hundred silver watches, one hundred wedding rings, thirteen dozen silver table spoons, six dozen dessert-spoons, three dozen forks, two dozen dessert ditto, three soup ladles, three silver skewers, and a gold-backed locket, amounting in value to upwards of £400. It appears that a person always sleeps on the premises, which he did not leave until eight o'clock on Sunday morning, when all was safe the robbery must, therefore, have been committed between that time and three o'clock in the afternoon, as Mr. Isaacs, at the latter hour, visited the shop, and then discovered that it had been entered and robbed. It appears that the thieves at first obtained entrance by some means or other through the door of the old Parish offices, in Harrington street, they then cut out a panel in a door a few steps from the bottom general staircase; this door opened into an empty room adjoining Mr. Isaac's shop, but the wall it is presumed, being too thick for them to perforate, they went up stairs, and forced their way into the office of the Manchester and Bolton Railway Company, which is directly over the shop. A hole was then cut through the floor, and the robbers descended a depth of twenty feet, by means of a rope. The work of plunder then commenced, the jewellery being drawn up to the floor above. How long they were on the premises is not, of course, known; but it is supposed they did not make their escape until warned by their scouts of the approach of Mr Isaacs, who, as we have stated visited his shop at three o'clock, No clue to the apprehension of the thieves has yet been discovered, but the police are on the alert, and it is to be hoped that ere long they will be apprehended. A reward of £100. has been offered for such information.

R. THELWELL

St. Ann's Square, Manchester


EXTRAORDINARY ROBBERY CHARGED OF £9,000

Manchester, Saturday. - This day Mr. R. Thelwell, who lately carried on a most extensive business as jeweller and silversmith in St. Ann's-square, was charged before the borough magistrates on suspicion of being concerned in a robbery committed on his own premises about seven weeks ago, when property to the amount of £9,000 was stolen. William Moobay was placed in the dock along with him, who had been employed as the porter in the establishment. Mr. Thelwell had been made a bankrupt, and the robbery was committed at me time the assignee's were in possession of the property. The magistrates called on him to find two sureties, in £1,000 each, for his appearance next Saturday. Moobay was also required to find sureties, and the parties in Ireland, whose evidence has led to this disclosure, will be brought forward at the next examination.

WOOLF SABOR

Whitechapel, Liverpool


IMPRISONMENT OF A LIVERPOOL JEWELLER FOR BUYING STOLEN PROPERTY

This morning, Mr Woolf Sabor, a jeweller and silversmith, Whitechapel, in this town, was brought before the borough magistrates, charged with having purchased a gold pencil case, knowing it to have been stolen. It appeared, from the statement of the case against the accused, that on Wednesday last, a lad named Quayle, in the employ of Mr Quick, jeweller, of Parker-street, stole a gold pencil-case from his employer, and soon afterwards took it to the prisoner's shop, and sold it to him for four shillings. Mr Snowball, for the prisoner, contended that the charge could not be sustained. The prisoner had not purchased the pencil-case from the boy Quayle without proper care. Quayle brought with him a written document, which stated that the case belonged to a respectable person, named Fisher, on which the prisoner thought himself justified in purchasing it. He had on former occasions purchased articles from Quayle under similar circumstances. On being questioned by the magistrates, the prisoner said he was not able to produce the paper which Quayle brought with him. It was thrown aside, and, he supposed, it had been destroyed. The magistrates having consulted for a few minutes, Mr Benn, the presiding magistrate, said it appeared clear that the prisoner had purchased the pencil-case, knowing that Quayle had improperly got possession of it; but, as there seemed to be some doubt thrown upon the boy's evidence, they had concluded not to pursue the extreme course of sending him for trial, he must be imprisoned for two months.
