FERDINAND J. TOLEDANO

New Orleans

Ferdinand J. Toledano, jeweler, New Orleans, La., was, July 2, discharged upon the affidavit that had been made against him by Matthew Weil, a mute, with having received and melted stolen property, the property consisting in a double case gold watch, chain and locket, valued at $150. The above articles had been stolen by his son, Henry Weil, aged about 23 years, some four weeks ago, and by him had been sold to Toledano for $25. The effort to prove Toledano knew that the property had been stolen was futile.

EMILE JAMES LANG

New Orleans


Death of Emile James Lang

New Orleans. La., Sept. 8.—The unexpected demise of Emile James Lang, a prominent jeweler of the lower section of the city, came as a severe blow to a large circle of relatives and acquaintances.

Mr. Lang had been in the jewelry business for years, and by his fair dealing and disposition to please won the esteem of all with whom he came in contact.

Mr. Lang was 59 years of age. He was born in New Orleans and it was here that he spent the greater portion of his life. Although associated with other businesses during his life, the jeweler’s trade appealed most to him, and it was that by which he was best known.

His death marks the end of a beloved and useful citizen. The funeral took place from his late residence, 1611 Dumaine St., Saturday afternoon. Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery, the funeral being attended by a host of friends.

LOUIS MOSS

Carondelet Street, New Orleans


Louis Moss, a Carondelet St. jeweler and diamond setter, who was arrested for stealing a quantity of jewelry from William Frantz & Co., 142 Carondelet St., pleaded guilty to larceny before Judge Chretien, in Section B, of the Criminal District Court, a few days ago. The plea is a compromise one, and under the law Moss will escape the penitentiary, but be compelled to serve the term in the parish prison. The first charge against the diamond setter was embezzlement, but Mr. Frantz, not wishing to be severe on the man, agreed to have him plead guilty of the lesser offense. Moss did job work for Mr. Frantz and other jewelers, and several weeks ago he created something of a sensation by declaring that two masked men had come into his place while he was working at night, and at the point of a pistol robbed him of a lot of valuable property. The property stolen belonged principally to Mr. Frantz and the remainder to private customers. The detectives went to work on the case and recovered most of Mr. Frantz’s jewelry in pawnshops, where it had been pledged by Moss.
