Strangers Took His Watch.

John Slavin, brother of Jule Slavin, a court tipstaff, was robbed last evening by two men in Wharton Square, at Twenty-third and Wharton streets. Slavin was sitting on a bench and was approached by the two men, who began a conversation. After they left, he found that his watch had been stolen. The case was reported to police and a search is being made for the highwaymen.
