J. E. Caldwell & Co. have designed and made the Henry D. Moore cup, which is to be presented to the Holly Beach Yacht Club as a perpetual trophy to be contested for annually by motor boats. The cup stands 14 inches, independent of the base, and is built of sterling silver. Around the top of the cup is an etched scene of a motor boat race in which four modern high-power boats are shown dashing through the water at high speed. Below the etching is applied a rope which forms a nautical loop. In the loop are the initials of the club. On the reverse side a rope medallion is applied. The remaining space is for the winners’ name each year. This house has the contract for the prizes to be awarded at the Chesterbrook races, Sept. 28.

J. E. Caldwell & Co., Have a Suit Against a Countess

Philadelphia, Pa., July 27.—Counsel for J. E. Caldwell & Co., have issued a foreign attachment from Common Pleas Court against the Countess Folchi-Vici, formerly Lily Macalester, and summoned the Fidelity Insurance and Safe Deposit Co. as trustee. Bail was placed at $849.50, and the action is brought to recover for a bill of jewelry, etc., aggregating half of that amount. The Countess Folchi-Vici is a granddaughter of the late Charles Macalester, who died shortly after the war, leaving a large fortune. His granddaughter, the Countess, lives in Italy and contracted the bill for jewelry while in this country about four years ago. Part of her income arises from a marriage contract trust of which the Fidelity Co. are trustee, and as the Countess but rarely visits this country, the only method possible to collect the bill is by making a claim for its payment out of this trust estate.

The publication of the alleged flight of Henry B. Chambers, at one time head bookkeeper for J. E. Caldwell & Co., was a surprise to the members of the trade in this city, where Mr. Chambers was well known and much esteemed. When seen by a Circular Weekly representative, Mr. Riley and Mr. Davisson, of Caldwell’s, said they had seen or heard nothing of Chambers since he left their house, two years ago. Efforts to locate Mr. Chambers’s wife, who is thought to be living in West Philadelphia, were unavailing.
