Believing that the success of this move ment would be a calamity to the public, and deem ing the preservation of the present system efentlal both to the security of the Inventor and the protec tion of the public. I rcsncctfultr lubmlt the follow ing consideration In favor of the present rule of requiring m-icl In all caw which admit or repre sentation by model: This requirement I believed to be peculiar to this country, Canada, tho only other Government making a rlmllar requirement, having adopte 1 the nlon rVnm ns. In a large majority of case the model Jgabso- liiieiy rcqmrcu wr ino proper (irenui"ii vi mi application, a few Inventor aro capable of de- If ncatlnc their lnentlnn by draw-inn or describing them Properly, consequently the requirement Is no nartinip to ine lnvenmr. Again, the model Is the treat safeguard to the Inipnlnr. nml while tlie drawlnirs mav be erro neous and the specification defective, the raodel still remain as Ihe bails for correction by reissue, and as unm'sukablo evidence of the construction of the machine tt represents. Again, the draw lug may lie fraudulently altered. The model Is tint only more difficult to alter but aiso serves as an auauionai uicck upon uie altera tion nfttto ilmwtni?. After the expiration of a patent the model re mains aa a defense ti the public against tho irraut of nnothrr Dntent loaubfnucnt Inventor for Ihe same tiling. Inentlons frequently become obso lete, so that It Is difficult to find reference to them, but the mode- of the Talent Office almost In aria bly afford a ready reference to tho devices desired.
