In the cities and villages. Diamond saturnalia.
The next interesting and very typical story excites a lot of talks in Kiev at the present time. This interesting criminal epic was disclosed in Moscow by Arkhipov N.I., the legal adviser of the famous trading house under the guise of «C. Fabergé», the lawyer and the chief accountant of this house and Yarke O.G, the trustee. In general, the case is presented in the following form.
The head of «C. Fabergé» trading house with a huge variety of various diamond things for sale during the fair has arrived at Kiev to the Contracted fair in February this year, and has announced his arrival in newspapers. Having drawn attention to the declaration of the arrival of the representative of «C.Fabergé», Nikolay Cherny and Joseph Iofe, two Kiev shysters, have come to him with the following proposal. They undertook to deliver buyers to the visitor. These buyers were known for their secured financial condition. The proposition turned out to be profitable, and Iofe and Cherny, who were promised to have a certain percentage, have started to bring buyers. Iofe and Cherny brought their clients to the representative of the firm, and recommended them to moneyed people who were in need of jewelry gifts for brides, wives, dowry for daughters, etc. It was arranged so craftily that all the «buyers», namely imaginary riches and businessmen, played the comedy so jauntily that they managed to misinform the Englishman, the firm's representative, who spoke Russian badly. And now a kind of diamond saturnalia has begun. Those who wanted were acquiring diamonds for a few thousand rubles at the expense of Iofe and Cherny.  Part of these jewels was given to Iofe and Cherny immediately, or Iofe and Cherny were being paid with money, and the rest of brilliant things was immediately pledged in pawnshop, dolly shops and with private persons, presented to relatives, wives, and daughters. Once the police even drew attention to the fact that many poor people have appeared to have money, diamonds, etc. In the stores of precious things it has been turned attention to the appearance of mass of diamonds of great value and clean water in the city, which were sold for trifling sum. The stones were sold for half-price in exchange houses and nightspots. Suffice it to say that all the firm has sold diamond things to the amount of 175,000 rubles, and the «Fabergé» firm has received 13,000 rubles in the form of advance payments altogether. Arrests of fences of diamonds continued all night on 6th of June, and these fences were brought to the city police in cabs. Cherny and Iofe, the main culprits, who were the soul of this case, have, of course, been detained the first. 10 people were arrested altogether, but some of them have paid security payment and have been released. One engineer took the diamonds to the amount of 34,000 rubles including a couple of remarkable diamond earrings, which cost about 12,000 rubles. It is unknown where these earrings are, but the engineer was not arrested, because he undertook to pay the money.

 Judicial news. The claim of the jeweler.
Morozov, well-known Moscow rich man, on the property of whom the guardianship had been established due to his extravagance, took more than 84,000 rubles of jewelry from the jeweler Fabergé 2 years ago, desiring to choose something to buy. A year or two passed, but diamonds never returned, except for a very small part. Fabergé has made a claim for refund, but both the Moscow District Court and the Appellate Court have disallowed the claim on the principle that the transactions made with the ward without the consent of the guardianship shall be considered void. Lednitskiy, Fabergé's attorney at law, has filed a cassation to the Senate, which has been considered on April 28. The judgment of the Appellate Court has been cancelled and the case has been submitted for reconsideration.
