LEDGER ST. JEAN

116, Ontario Street, Montreal


A quantity of valuable plated goods was stolen from the show window of Mr. Ledger St. Jean's jewelry establishment, No. 116 Ontario Street, Montreal, in the early hours of a recent Sunday morning. A doctor and another gentleman passing the store at half-past three o'clock noticed that the large plate-glass window had been smashed, and the few articles left had been disarranged in a manner to indicate that a quantity of valuables had been taken. They called up the proprietor and later the police were engaged on the case. Antoine Lemarche, one of the men arrested, on suspicion of having committed the crime, has been recognized as a man the police have wanted for a year, on a charge of highway robbery committed on Craig Street. Mr. St. Jean carried insurance on his stock with the Dominion Burglary Guarantee Company, which will cover his loss.

J.B.R. DUFRESNE

Notre Dame Street, Montreal


Much regret has been felt in jewelry and civic circles because of the death of ex-Alderman Dufresne, for many years a well-known jeweler on Notre Dame Street. He retired from business to accept the position of clerk of the works on the repairs to the court house. In 1885, Mr. J. B. R. Dufresne was elected by St. James Ward to the City Council. He remained in the Council until 1891. While a member of that body he was an active member of the Roads, Parks and Ferries and Market Committees. On the completion of the works to the court house he took up his residence in Longueuil and served a year and a half as town councillor in that place. Mr. Dufresne was thrice married, and his third wife, a Miss Hurteau, was also thrice married, being at the time of her marriage to Mr. Dufresne the widow of the late Capt. Bourdon, of the R. & O. Company. The funeral took place from the deceased's late residence at Longueuil to the parish church, thence to Cote des Neiges cemetery. The attendance was very large.
