The latest construction of Judge Carpenter's decision against the Ber liner patent, tbe most important patent held by the American Bell Telephone company, and the one upon which it depends, II it depends on patents at all, for the continuance ol its monopoly, makes it probable that the ruling will not pre the com petitors of the Bell company some. thing of an advantage in the situa tion. Tbe patent in question was that is sued to Emile Berliner Nov. 17, 1891, and is known as the Berliner patent. It covers the transmitter now in use .on long distance tele, phones and in a general way it nay be said to cover any transmitter in which the vibrations are due to dif ferences of pressure between elec trodes in constant contact. 1 be expiration ol tbe patents on the receivers a few months ago was of some benefit to the public in the establishment of certain kinds of private lines. This decision that the patent covering the transmitters is void, will not, it is said, be of ben efit even to that extent, at least not for a vear or so, for two reasons. The Decision. First, this decision is not final. The case will now go to the United States court of appeals," savs Fred crick P. Fisher, of counsel for the Bull company. "A decision will be rendered by that court possibly next spring, alter tbe case nas neen ar gued anew, just as though the cir cuit court had not made a decision. Should the case go against us in tbe United States court of appeals, it will probably go to tbe Lnited Mates sn pre me court, but we behave the court of appeals will decide in our favor." The other reason is that tl.c Amer ican Bell Telephone company is firm ly established all over tbe country ana enjoys irancbises wnicn in some cases would-be rivals could not get. and in other cases would not attempt to utilize n thev aid get. because of the long war .'ith the rich monopoly such a thing would involve. The Bell company has - its franches, its wires, and its exchanges all in oper ation. 1 radical men say this fact will do more than any number of patents to protect it in the enjoy ment of its monopoly. otwith standing this fact, the adverse de. cision was immediately felt by the stock. A few days ago the Bell tele phone stock climbed to 201. An the announcement of the decision it fell to 191. But it immediately began to pull itself together, and closed at 134 on tbe day ol tbe decision. II the higher courts reverse Judge Car penter's decision in the Berliner pat ent case, the telephone monopoly will be practically proofs against as saults until Nov. 17, 1908, as the life of the patent is 17 vears from Nov it, 1891, to date of its issue.

J Daily Advertiser savs: The Princeton Glee, Banio and Mandolin clubs, an organization made np of 50 voung Princeton students. entertained a large audience in tbe most delightful fashion at the Essex Lvceum last night. The concert was as much a social affair as it was a musical treat, and the combination was one which gave a distinctive flavor to the occasion. The audi ence was both large and enthusiastic. and its warm approval soon bad a most happy effect npon the singers d tue players, wbo were stimu lated to their very best efforts and were rewarded with hearty applause. Ihe Ulee club was better than us ual. It sang the old favorites. "The Orange and the Black," New Jer- sec, etc.. in a most acceptable wav. and it was particularly effective when it sang the much loved "Tri angle Song1' and The Creole Love Song." with full accompaniment of tbe Banjo and Mandolin clubs. Be sides, tbe Glee club's singing of some glees was well done. The two ac companied solos bv Mr. Rcichner, who gave Kai men," and Mr. rcase. who sang the doleful story of Thomp son s Mule, caused much pleasure. It is no detraction to the other clubs to say that tbe Mandolin club carried off the honors of the evening. It would be difficult to find tbe equal of this club in its own department. The men played with the most de lightful expression and intelligence and their performance was as ex quisite and as refined as if it were tbe work of professionals. Tbe Melodic" of Rubinstein was master ly in its intrpretation. Tbe rlub is admirably trained and it is a great pleasure to hear its brilliant work. The Banjo club also gave a great deal of pleasure with its jolly jigs and characteristic melodit-s. The three organizations, although tbcv were down on tbe program for 17 selec tions, cheerfully responded to every demand fur "mori " STRAUSS, Y0IID0RF h ROSE STOCK Which was sold at Auction at Chicago oh December 6, now going on.
