Fifty-two clerks of the three largest
department stores of Davenport have
been discharged for alleged dishonest
practices with patrons.
The three stores affected are J. H.
C. Petersen Sons. Harned & Yoa
Maur and The Fair, many of the
clerks let out being old and trusted
employes. The discharged clerks are
accused of giving too much goods too
The fact that the 52 clerks were
dismissed simultaneously by the three
big stores shows that the proprietors
had been considering the move and
had planned to act together. They
had received numerous intimations
that goods was disappearing too fast
for the amount of money taken in and
had only been able j discover the
reascn after a close surveillance of
their suspected employes.
The chief cause for action on the
part of the management of the three
iarge department storeg was in the
sale of goods that came by the bolt.
The clerks discharged are said to
have been accustomed to give their
friends a yard and a half for the price
of a yard or two yards where but one
was paid for. This practice gave the
store management little chance to dis
cover where the leak occurred as the
money taken in would be correct ac
cording to the bill of goods sold and
it was not believed that the clerks
themselves were making away with
the number cf yards that disappeared.
