I hemiin. triinp bkothire, of this CITY, AWARDED $10,©OW DA BAUER. About a year aud a half ago a man named James L. Branson, of Phila delphia, was arrested in this city on a capias issued at the instance of Messrs. ump Brothers, machinists of this city, for $2,000 due them by Branson. At the tune of his arrest and shortly alter his release he liici'UBLlCAN re|)orter, and informed tin* newspaper man that lie did not owe them a cent and that he had been shamefully treated. An article to that ellcct appeared, which done the Messrs. Trump Brothers a gross injustice, but was corrected In a later issue. The capias was served on Branson by J. H. Hoffeeker, Jr., Esq., attorney for ip Brothers, for the $2,500 due his clients, which was subsequently re covered without its being taken to Court. The entire circumstance of the case is about as follows : The Trump Brothers first made a contract with Branton in 1870,to manu facture a patent knitting machine, which, when they got hold of it was im perfect and little or no good to the pat entee. The contractors then set about to improve the machiue aud after spend ing considerable time, and at great jrt'iiKc, they made it a very valuable ar ticle. in order that they might fill his (the patentee's) orders a large stock of achines was made up,and in 1882 they were doing a large business in the manufacture of the same. In Feb ruary, 1882, the patentee violated the terms of bis contract aud ran into the debt of the manufacturers to the amount of about $2,700. When he was approached upon subject he disputed their accounts ami claimed that a considerable sum of money was due him. Several attempts were made on the part of the manufac turers for an amicable settlement, but without successs, any part of their claim, unless they ac ceded to certain unjust demands he made upon them, which, ofcourse, they refused to do, and he finally told them that he would not pay them a cent less compelled to in Court. He was ac cordingly arrested on a capias, as stated above, and the amount of the claim col lected. This still left the manufacturers with a large number of the machines on together with a considerable amount of valuable machinery used in the construction, which he refused to take off their bands, and, having al possession through them, of the improvements to his pa tent, he began to manufacture the his o Tl interviewed by ■ Tri 0 flic the he declined to pay I u'd I (A li.Uid Philadelphia ; bid defiance to the firm in this city.
