GILDER & SON

Hull


ROBBERIES AT HULL

Two mysterious cases of shop breaking have occurred in Hull. On Thursday morning a round piece was cut out of a shutter lined with iron at Messrs Gilder and Son, jewellers. The plate-glass window was broken, and a large quantity of valuables worth £300 were stolen. The other robbery took place on the premises of Mr Hobley, keeper of the branch post-office. The entry was skilful and noiselessly effected from the rear of the premises, and £100 was taken from the cash box.

HARRIS STONE

Leeds


Colliers and Watches

At the Holywell County Court on Tuesday several judgment summonses came before Judge Moss. Harris Stone, a Leeds jeweller, sueing a dozen people (colliers from Bagillt) for payment for watches. The defendants pleaded poverty, and stated plaintiff's representative (a man named Cohen) had forced the watches on to them. His honour was inclined to this belief, and only made small orders in each case, refusing to allow Cohen his costs.

ABRAHAM LEVINE

Leeds


Jeweller Murdered: Two Held

LONDON, Nov. 18. - Police are holding two young men for questioning over the murder yesterday of Leeds jeweller, Abraham Levine. Police detained the men at Southport, Lancashire.

Two men walked into Levine's shop yesterday and drew their guns. Levine grappled with them. They clubbed and shot him and then rushed out of the shop, firing wildly at bystanders. Nobody was hit.

Levine died last night, but managed to whisper a description of the killers. The Chief Constable of Leeds, Mr. J. W. Barnett, last night ordered 900 police to get the men at all costs and to "shoot it out if necessary." Police have taken nearly 500 statements, combed every inch of the likely districts, and screened all passengers leaving Leeds in buses and trains.

The killing follows the theft from a Leeds gunsmith at the week-end of seven guns and 2,000 rounds of ammunition.

WILLIAM LOCKWOOD

Huddersfield


THE DARING JEWELLERY ROBBERY AT HUDDERSFIELD

On Friday the prisoner, Anthony Hopkins, 26 years old, described as a labourer, of no fixed residence, was brought before the borough magistrates at Huddersfield, charged with having broken into the shop of Mr. William Lockwood, silversmith, and stolen jewellery, consisting of a considerable variety of articles, of the total value of £1100. The main facts of the robbery have appeared. Next evening, from information received, Police-constable Greenwood went in plain clothes to Spivey's dram-shop, in King street, and there found the prisoner, who made very little resistance. He wanted to know what he was being taken for, and on the way to the station he remarked that he had been properly caught, and he did not care. He threw a handful of gold chains on the ground, and they were picked up by the people who were following. After the man had been searched in the police office, he created quite a consternation by suddenly extending his right arm, and exclaiming, "And now you ——, the lives of all of you." It was thought he was armed with a revolver, for he had only then been partly searched; one officer ducked behind the counter; a second stood motion-less as though transfixed; and there was a regular stampede of officers and general public from the office into the street. When the office was pretty well cleared, the prisoner retired into a corner and laughed heartily at the joke he had played, for which he was gently tapped by one of the officers, and then removed to the cells. The total value of the property recovered - that is, found on the roof and in the prisoner's possession is £1100, and it consists of gold lockets, brooches, bracelets and ear-rings, scarf-pins, eye-glasses, 39 oz. of old gold, gold spectacles, neck-lets, seals, pencil-cases, and a large quantity of other articles, both gold and silver. The prisoner had nothing to say in defence, and he was committed to the sessions for trial.

DANIEL MULLARKY

13, Manchester Road, Bradford


ARRANGEMENTS WITH CREDITORS

Daniel Mullarky, Jeweller and Dealer in Furniture, Mangles, and Prams, 13, Manchester Road, Bradford.

The above came up for public examination last month, and in answer to the Official Receiver, the debtor said up to October, 1894, he was manager for a firm of jewellers in Bradford. He then began business on his own account as a jeweller and silversmith at 13, Manchester Road, Bradford, having £150 capital. The business was at first successful, and he had a turnover of about £1,000 per annum, which increased year by year. The gross profits varied from thirty to 100 per cent, on the turnover. In 1897 he extended his business by taking the shops 20 and 21, Manchester Road, Bradford, and in 1901 he took a warehouse at 12, Fawcett Court, Bradford, and began to sell furniture and household requisites on the hire purchase system. In the same year he began selling jewellery on the instalment system. The goods were sold through agents, the terms being ten per cent, deposit and ten per cent, per month afterwards. The debts outstanding on that business was very heavy. He had returned his book debts at £2,119, of which £604 were doubtful and £1,039 absolutely bad. Most of the debts were in connection with the instalment branch of the business. People did not pay as they ought to have done, and there were a great many defaulters. In the first year the turnover of the instalment branch was £7,000, but it had since declined to half that amount. In order to meet the claims of creditors he had pawned certain portions of his stock-in-trade, and had otherwise disposed of goods at less than cost price. This had been going on for nearly two years, and had resulted in a loss of probably £500. In February, 1904, he gave up the shops 20 and 21, Manchester Road, Bradford, and in June of this year he discontinued the furniture business. During the last two years he had been frequently sued by creditors, and had paid out executions by selling and pawning jewellery at less than cost price. Questioned as to his indebtedness to a creditor who had proved for over £600 the debtor said he did not owe this creditor more than £350. — In reply to Mr. A. V. Hammond, who appeared for a creditor, the debtor said that the debt last alluded to arose in connection with accommodation bill transactions. The bills were given, in many instances, to help the creditor concerned over his pay day. The creditor would give the debtor his own cheque, and in return the debtor would hand over bills for double the amount to be paid into the bank against the cheque. On the application of Mr. Lemon, representing the trustee, the examination was adjourned to the 4th October, and the debtor was ordered to furnish an account of the goods disposed of at less than cost.
