EDISON IS A WINNER
In Bis Suits Against Other Compa
nies That Are Kow Using
ALL THE INCANDESCENT LAMPS.
Infringers Must Come to Terms With the
Owners of the Talent,
BUT TIIET MUST HATE PROPER PRICES
r&FZCIAL TZLEORAM TO TIIE DISPATCH.
New Yokk, Dec. 15. There was handed
down in the United -States Circuit Court of
Appeals o-day a decision in the suit of the
Edison Electric Light Company and the
Edison General Electric Company, appel
lees, against tha Sawyer-Mann Electric
Company, appellant, sustaining, the injunc
tion obtained by the plaintiffs restraining
the defendant from making, using or vend
ing the incandescent lamps of the patent
granted to Thomas A. Edison January 27,
1880, and now owned by the plaintiffs. The
decision tars, however:
The injunction orderappealed from should
bo modified so as to cover only lamps made
in infringement or the second claim of the
patent, the other claims, not having been
in rinsed, according; to the aajndlcation of
the Circuit Court or orthiscouit. It should
also contain a provision reserving the rhjlit
to the defendant to movo lieiearter for the
vacation, suspension or modification f the
injunction upon proof of specific instances
of rerusal on the part or the complainants or
eithor of them to supply the lamps o the
patent upon terms reasonable, under tho
circumstances of the particular case, to tho
owners or electrlc-lishtiiirf plants which
weie installed borore the lendition or the
interlocutory decree of the Circuit Court
sustaining the validity of the patent.
Bights or Competing Manufacturers.
As to competing manufacturers the court
says that they took their risks in manufac
turing while the patent was in dispute. If,
in consenuence, their investments in other
electrical apparatus will be greatly depre
ciated, they must take the consequences.
The users "who have supplied themselves
with electric lighting plants from the in
fringers which required lor their operation
lamps of the patent are of course iulringers.
But those who did so before the decision of
the Circuit Court sustaining the patents,
and at a time when judicial decisions in
foreign countries interpreting the patent
were in conflict, and who are now willing
to accept their lamps from the complainants
upou reasonable terms, have much stronger
equities than the manufacturers and in
fringers. These equities the court will not disre
gard, but what would be reasonable terms
if an application were made to the court on
behalf of these users is a question which
can only be determined in each case upon
its particular circumstances. As to those
users, however, who have acquired these
plants subject to the decision ot the Cir
cuit Court, it they are deprived of the use
of the lamps, and as a consequence the
value of their plants may be greatly im
paired, they must accept the results as a
consequence of their own imprudence.
How It Affects the West.
A special from St, Louis says: The decis
ion Effecting parties making or usine the
Edison incandescent electric lamp, handed
down to-day by the New York Court of Ap
peals, and' restraining the Sawyer-Mann
people Irom making, selling or using the
incandescent lamp, affects St Louis mate
rially. It is regarded as the forerunner of
a series of suits and injunctions. The West
ingbouse people have been making and
selling lamps under the Sawyer
Mann patents, so that of all the in
candescent lamps used a great many of
them are brought under the ban. It has
been uuderstood here for some time that if
the injunction prayed for in New York was
granted, proceedings would be immediately
brought here against individual electric
licht companies. The latter will be com
pelled to chance to the Edison. Of'the St.
Louis companies the Missouri uses the
Westinghouse, and the Municipal and
Laclede the Thomson-Houston, which is
virtuallv the Edison, as all of the electric
companies are consolidated under the name
of the General Electric Company, except
EIGBT'S CASE IS SIBONGEB.
On the Evidence at rirst Introduced in the
Meadville, Pa., Dec. 15. S'nfaaLJ
The bills .of particulars which the court
ordered filed in the Andrews-Higby election
contest were filed, one last evening.aud
that of Higby, who was granted a little
further time, was filed to-day. In court
to-day the evidence in the Andrews case
was presented. It asserts, in substance,
that 200 votes have been illegally cast in
the various election precincts, and sets up
for the most part the plea of defective
papers in cases of non-registration. The
case is not as strong as many had antici
pated. The Higby bill complains of over 1,000
fraudulent or illegal votes, but omits to
state wherein they were fraudulently cast.
The Higby people think they have the
best of it" on the evidence before the court.
It is expected that the judicial considera
tion of the case will take much time, and
that it will finally be transferred to a com
missioner to sift to the bottom.

This is especially going on among the
conductors, with apparently a good degree
of success, for at present all the passenger
conductors of the Fanhandle between
Columbus and Fittsburg who were mem

order except one. Among those who have
taken this action within the last few months
are Oscar Bull, William Merrick, James

Dan Brown, Thoma Doyle, John. Baker,
John McDevitt and Ed MorrelL
The latter gentleman sent in his request
for withdrawal only last Sunday. Mr.
Morrell is assistant trainmaster, and has
alwavs been an active member of the O. B.
C. He has held a number of positions of
honor and trust in the order, and was con

withdrawal is the greatest surprise of any,
especially as there was no apparent reason.

While returning to Mohave, Ariz., re

strangest animals ever seen in this section
of the country if not in the world. Mr.
Parks, after shooting it five times with a45
caliber Winchester, finally succeeded in
Tho body, as described by the Miner, is
10 inches in circumference aud 18 inches in
length. The tail, if such it mav be termel,
is 4 inches. Its trout feet are similar to
those of a dog, only the toes being missing,
while its bind legs, sonvwhat longer than
its front, terminate in cloven hoofs. Its
head is ot a bright red color, somewhat of
the hue of the "red-eve" which the hunters
had taken along as a preventive for snake
bite. The hair on the animal's body is of a
light baby blue, which gives it a neat, tidy
appearance. The upper, jaw of the quad
ruped is adorned with two immense tusks,
curving downward, giving it a ferocious ex
pression. The tongue is forked and is used
for catching ants. The snout terminates in
a long trunk similar to the arm of an oc
topus ot prehensile tendency.
It was discovered by Mr, Parks, clinging
to the surface of a pine tree about 50 feet
from the ground. It was placed in the ice
house pending the arrival of Prof. Baelle,

after which it will be placed on exhibition

TKEY 0EBAUSHT THE LIP1
Pieces of Bone Inscrtee in the Under
Labial to Increase Its Size.
Among the Babines, who dwell in the
north of the Columbia river, says the
Brooklyn EagU, a large under lip is re
garded as a type of beauty. A small incis
ion is made in the lip during infancv and a
fragment of bone inserted. This is replaced
from time to time by larger fragments,
each operation beinc attended with severe
pain, and at length pieces of wood measur
ing not less than three inches in length,
and one and a half inches in width are in
serted, causing the lip to protrude to a
A similar custom exists among the Para
guay Indians, and the labnets worn by the
Botbcudos are inserted in a slit made in the
lower lip. ABotocudo has been noticed to
take a knife and cut a piece of meat on it
and tumble the meat into his month.
Among the Hvdahs (Qneen Charlotte Is
land) it is considered a mark of the lowest
breeding to be without this labial ornament
of the lower lip.
"When a young woman and an old one
quarrel the e'lderlv dame will reproach the
younger one with her youth, inexperience,
and general ignorance, pointing, were fur

her lip. This lip or beauty is not, however,
peculiar to these aborigines, but is common
among some of the African tribes. The
Berrys, for instance, who inhabit Sanbriat,
a tributary ot the Nile, insert in the lower
lip a piece of crystal an inch in length.

Lubricating Oil ana Cakes Made From tho
Seeds and the Besldne.
In some portions of Kansas the sunflower
is a veritable nuisance, and the amount
that is made out of the thousands of plants
that are to be found in the summer time in
well-nigh every county is a mere pittance,
says a writer in the St Louis Glode-Democrat
This is to be regretted, especially in th e
face of so much being said about bard times,
for there is money to be made out of the
sunflower even if a trifle were expended to
persuade it to grow, which, however, it
seem entirely superfluous to do. From
sunflower seed one of the best lubricating
oils yet discovered can be made, and after
the process is completed the residue is a
species of oilcake which will make an ani
