J.P. MARSHALL & Co. - HARRY HODGKINS

Somerset Lane, Melbourne


GOLDSMITHS ROBBED

Man for Trial on Two Charges


At the City Court yesterday Alexander Blake was presented on two charges of factory breaking. Harry Hodgkins, manufacturing jeweller, trading as J. P. Marshall and Co., Somerset-lane, city, said that on 31st August he locked His premises at 5.00 p.m. There was a quantity of jewellery, gold filings, &c., in the workshop. The following morning he found that the steel gauze above the front door had been partly removed, and the back door was open. The property in court had been in the workshop. He valued it at £30.

Charles Richard Forster, manufacturing jeweller, Collins-street, said that at 8.15 a.m. on 30th August, when he went to his premises, he found the door of the workshop open. A trap door in the ceiling had been forced and a sheet of iron removed from the roof. An attempt to blow open a safe had failed. A tin of gold and platinum ring mounts and some gold filings were missing. He valued the property stolen at about £10.

Constable Lloyd, of South Richmond, said that at 3.50 a.m. on 1st September, in company with Constable Hunt, he arrested accused near the factory of Tilbury and Lewis, silversmiths, Wangaratta-street, Richmond. He identified the property in court as that found in the possession of accused, who said he got it from the office of Tilbury and Lewis. In accused's overcoat pocket were three plugs of gelignite. Accused told Constable Hunt he had tried to blow "the safe upstairs" with gelignite.

Detective Lee said that when questioned at the Detective Office accused admitted having broken into the factories of Marshall and Forster. He said he had stolen the gelignite from a quarry at Northcote, When asked where he lived, accused said he had come from Sydney about ten days previously.

Blake was committed for trial at the Criminal Sessions on 2nd October. Bail was fixed at £250 and a surety in a like amount on the first charge, and a personal surety of £50 on the second.

A further charge against Blake, of having broken into the office of Preston municipal quarries and stolen 12 detonators, was remanded to Preston court.

BIRNSTINGL & Co.

473, George Street, Sydney


Image
Birnstingl - Sydney - 1844

A Pigeon Match came off on Tuesday last, at Hill's paddock, for a splendid silver cup, manufactured for the express purpose by Mr. Birnstingl, silversmith, of George-street. In consequence of a disputed shot by Mr. E. Clarke, decided in favour of the field, it ended in a tie between four of the candidates, Messrs. E. Clarke, Brother Rickard, J. Gannon, and Shuttleworth, and will be re-shot for by those gentlemen on Wednesday, the 12th of March. Umpires, Dr. W. B. Neville and Mr. Gaskell. There are some heavy bets pending on the ensuing meeting, and some first-rate sport is anticipated, more particularly on two by-matches formed between the crack men.

Birnstingl & Co. were noted in trade directories as being located at 473, George Street, Sydney in 1847.

PRESCOTT & DAWES

Mitchell Street, Bendigo


ROBBERY AT JEWELLER'S SHOP

While working his beat about 2 a.m. on Monday, Const. Quinlan discovered that the plate-glass window in the recess of the doorway of Messrs. Prescott and Dawes shop in Mitchell Street had been smashed. He had examined the door about an hour earlier. and everything was then intact.
After finding the window broken, Const. Quinlan made an examination of the door, but found that it had not been tampered with, his investigation, however, showed that some of the stock in the interior of the window had been disturbed. Mr C. Dawe and Det. Currie were apprised of of the robbery, and the former, on arrival, examined the stock in the window and found that between £35 and £40 worth of watches, bangles. brooches, and necklets had been removed. Most of these were of the cheaper class of goods, but a fairly large number of each was taken. Mr Dawe for some time past has observed the precaution of placing the valuable stock in safe each evening, and consequently none of the best jewellery was stolen.
