R.W. STODDART

Montreal


A daring robbery was perpetrated last month in Montreal, by which Mr. Mr. R. W. Stoddart lost about about $4,500 of diamond diamond rings. About 6 o’clock in the evening, when the streets were thronged with men and women returning from their work, three men approached the show window of Mr. Stoddart’s place, and while one of them fastened the door to prevent anyone getting out, another smashed the show case window, while the third reached in and secured a glass case in which the diamonds were exhibited. The thieves got away before pursuit could be entered upon. In breaking the window the blow also broke the glass case containing the diamonds, and in their flight the thieves dropped one or two of the gems which were recovered.

C. SWENSON

657, Craig Street, Montreal


A Missing jeweler

Montreal, Feb. 13.—Mr. C. Swenson, jeweler, 657 Craig street, is missing. He has not been seen since Monday. He was doing a good business. He is a bachelor of about 55 years of age, has been established here for over fifteen years and bears a good name. Many suppositions are afloat concerning his disappearance. Swenson was in the habit of carrying large amounts of money about him and there are fears of foul play. Detective Robinson went yesterday morning to Mr. Swenson’s store, where the dust all over the place was a clear proof that nobody had been in for several days. The store was well searched but nothing was found, and the stock, which is a valuable one, had not been touched by anyone. Last year Mr. Swenson had a severe attack of grip and has never been the same since, and his friends think that he has done away with himself in some way, as his revolver, which was always kept in the store, is missing. He was very well known in the city, and owned considerable property on Lagauchetiere street, and it is known that at the time of his disappearance he had to his credit in the bank over twelve thousand dollars. There also are suspicions of foul play.

Swenson Still Missing

Montreal, Feb. 14. —During the last two days several persons have applied to the police to get goods, which had been left at Mr. Swenson's, returned to them. This morning the Chief of Police was granted an order from Justice Mathieu to bring the safe and all the jewelry in the store of Mr. Swenson to his office and take charge of it. Detective Robinson has searched the city and the municipalities, but has not been able to find any trace of the missing man. Swenson was seen at three o’clock on Tuesday morning by two policemen of No. 5 station. He was then on Craig street. They asked him where he was going and he told them he was going for a walk as he could not sleep. He added that while dozing he had heard a dog howl, and it reminded him of a dog he heard howl in the Franco-Prussian war. Chief Hughes says that Swenson was worth $20, 000.
