THE INCANDESCENT LAMP.
Henry Gobel and Not Wizard Edison the
Inventor of It.
Boston, Jan. 23 —In the United States
circuit court today, in the case of the
Edison Electric Lighting company, re
straining the Beacon Lamp company
of thin city from manufacturing incan
descent lamps, for an alleged infringe
ment on Edison's patent, the Beacon
company filed about 30 affidavits al
leging that the incandescent la mo was
not invented by Edison in 18711 as al
leged, but by a German-American
named Henry Gobel. The affidavits
show that Gobel, after having experi
mented for several years, final ly devised,
somewhat earlier titan 1600, nubatan
tially the form of incandescent lamps
now in use, and on which E lißon
claims the patent. The nee of this lamp
was necessarily limited by the fact that
dynamos were not then invented, but
Gobel made many of these lamps in full
anticipation of Edison's lamp, and ac
cordingly Edison's patent is invalid.

for tbe publication of semi-annual state
ments by banks, showing their actual
financial condition on tbe first Monday
in March and the first Monday in Sep

quires these statements to be published

assessors of tho different counties are
made. It is also provided that all

erty, the money deposited in bank to
the credit of every tax-payer. Under
the present system it is impossible for
the assessors to reach this class of per
