WREXHAM. INFRINGEMENT OF THE TRADE MARK AcT.-At the Borough Magistrates' Court, on Monday, Messrs Wallis Brothers and Co., ginger beer manufacturers, &c., appeared to answer three charges preferred against them by Messrs J. F. Edis- bury and Co.,mineral wate^manufacturers,of com- mitting three offences against the Trade Mark Act. —David Brown said that on the 22nd February he purchased a number of bottles belonging to the complainants which contained Wallis' Mineral Waters,and also the libel used by the defendants. At the Henblas-street Cocoa-rooms he saw the father of the defendants soliciting orders. He (Willis) asked for some empties, and said that it did not matter whose they were if they were equal to their own.—Mr J. F. Edisbury said that the bottles of Wallis and Co. (Limited) were his pro- perty, as he had purchased their business in November of last-vear--The defendants said thev had not committed the offence wilfully.—The bench fined them 10s. each on the three separate charges, the fines amounting with the costs to £7 18s. 6d., or in default fourteen days' hard labour. The defendants were allowed a week to pay the money. THE OUTBREAK OF DIPHTHERIA AT ROSSETT AND ORBsFoRD.-Diphtheria, which brske out nt Rossett a few months ago, has now spread to Gresford and the surrounding neighbourhood, and assumed such proportions that a special meeting of the Wrexham Rural Sanitary Authority was held on Friday to consider the matter. Dr Davies, the medical officer, recom- mended that the Bossett School should be closed, as well as any public-house or shop in which the disease might break out, and that steps be taken to secure suitable premises for the isolation of the cases.—The chairman pointed out that sanitary authorities had no power to close schools they could -only recommend.—Mr Swetenham, Q.C., said he believed that it was intended to insert a clause giving that power in a bill to be brought before Parliament.—The clerk said that, in the case of public-houses and shops, the occupiers of such, places, in the event of infectious disease existing, were liable to a penalty for serving any person whilst the disease existed on the premises.—It was ultimately resolved to forward a copy of the medieal officer's certificate to the managers of the Rossett School and that the clerk state that the sanitary authority strongly recommend the adoption of the medical officer's suggestion.—The clerk was also instructed to take the necessary steps with a view of obtaining one or more cottages for the purpose of isolating the existing cases.—A report was also presented from Mr Hugh Davies who stated that the drainage of Gresford was' very defective.—The matter was adjourned to the next meeting of the board.
