Baltimore, Md., Oct. 29.—The Klank Manufacturing Co., silversmiths and platers, 110 W. Fayette St., have made an assignment for the benefit of creditors to Charles C. Stieff, trustee. The bond was for $20,000. Mr. Stieff on Saturday applied for a receiver for the company, the action being withdrawn Monday. The business of the company has been unprofitable, it is stated, since its incorporation, last January. Its liabilities are said to be $5,000, and the assets, consisting mainly of machinery, are estimated to be more than sufficient to pay creditors dollar for dollar.

SIMON RUMAN

156, North Gay Street, Baltimore


Daring Hold-up and Robbery of Jeweler of Baltimore, Md.

Baltimore, Sept. 13. — Another sensational robbery has occurred in the downtown jewelry center, this time in daylight also, the victim being Simon Ruman, 156 N. Gay St. Early this morning two men walked into his store and asked to see some watches, and as he proceeded to get a tray from the show case one of the robbers leveled a pistol at his head and demanded that he throw up his hands.

The jeweler was so startled that he failed to comply immediately, whereupon the gun was shoved into his face and the demand repeated. Although traffic on Gay St. was at this time of the day very heavy and there were many people passing to and fro, the jeweler could see no other alternative than to comply, as the hold-up occurred in the rear of the store, where he could not be seen, and he realized the men were desperate. Following the command to throw up his hands he was led back into an anteroom, where he was bound and gagged, and while one member kept close watch on him with the pistol handy the other proceeded to lock the front door and ransack the show cases. Not content with this, they took $25 from his pockets and whatever loose change they could find around the store. In addition rings valued at $200 were taken, and five watches of the cheaper variety, valued in all at $50. Mr. Ruman expects the loss will be found to be considerable when he goes through all his stock.

The first intimation that anything was wrong in the store was when August Grecht, who was standing on the opposite side of Gay St., heard a crash, and, running across the street, peered through the broken door glass and saw Mr. Ruman struggling on the floor, bound lightly to a rocking chair, which he had succeeded in shoving through the glass. He had tried to unlock with his teeth the door which the robbers had locked before they made their escape through the back door, but had only knocked the key to the floor. He directed Mr. Grecht to reach his hand in and find the key, unlock the door and release him. While this was going on others notified the police, and four detectives from headquarters were rushed to the scene and followed up the robbers, who, however, had made good their escape through the back way. They had bound him tightly with towels and strong cord and threatened to return and kill him if he attempted to give an alarm. Mr. Ruman described one of the robbers as being about 28 years old, with smooth face, black hair and weighing about 175 pounds. This man wore a soft blade hat and dark suit. The other was about 25 years old, five feet six inches tall and weighed about 125 pounds. He wore a black derby hat.
