A CORRECTION

TO THE EDITOR - In your report of the conviction of William Williams, at the Quarter Sessions, October 22nd, for stealing German silver goods, you mention Messrs. Mappin and Webb as the firm victimised. This is a error. We know nothing of the man, nor of the matter recorded, and, as from the circumstances of the case some reflection is erroneously cast upon the employes here. I courteously ask for immediate correction.

Yours truly,
MAPPIN AND WEBB
H. Linley Howlden, General Manager

An important arrest was made in Montreal last month when H. H. Muggley, age 48, claiming to be from New York was picked up by the police after endeavoring to purchase valuable articles in the Mappin and Webb and Birks' stores.

The arrest was due to the fact that Mr. W. Talbot Payton, secretary of Mappin and Webb, Limited, had noticed in the Jewelers' Circular an account of a man securing $5,400 worth of jewelry from J. B. Hudson and Sons of Minneapolis by means of a worthless check.

Muggley arrived in Montreal from Vancouver and took a suite at the Windsor Hotel with his wife and 13 year old son. He paid several visits to the Mappin and Webb store and picked out a $6,000 stone for his wife. He was particular about getting the benefit of the New York exchange on the cheque with which he proposed to make payment and Mr. Payton became suspicious, recollecting the description of the man who had operated in Minneapolis. He communicated with the police and Muggley was placed under arrest. All of the jewelry reported as missing by the Hudson firm was recovered and proceedings were at once taken to have the prisoner returned to Minneapolis.

Muggley had visited the store of Henry Birks & Sons in Vancouver, but was unable to put anything over on the astute Western representatives. He found the going equally hard in Montreal as he had visited the local Birk's store and selected a $6,000 diamond ring, but Mr. W. M. Birks had a dispatch from Vancouver advising him to accept no check from the visitor and he was accordingly refused credit.

J—Pltfs., Mappin & Webb, Ltd., incorporated in 1898, were the successors in business of two old-established firms of Mappin Bros. & Mappin & Webb. Deft. L., a London retailer, sold goods similar to pltfs. but made by one B., who was alleged, without strict proof, to have bought the business in Sheffield of one Theophilus Mappin, trading as Mappin & Sons. The goods sold by deft, were marked “ Mappin & Sons,” & bore price tickets with such phrases as ” Mappins’ A1 Quality.” Deft.’s salesmen had represented that the goods were the same as pltfs.’ Separate proceedings were pending against B. ; - Held : pltfs. were entitled to an injunction restraining deft, from selling goods not of pltfs.’ manufacture as & for such goods.— Mappin & Webb, Ltd. v. Leapman (1905), 22 R. P. C. 398.
