— j Action About Incandescent I Mantles. At the Merthyr County Court last Friday, before Judge Bryn Roberts, Solomon Laven, general dealer, 24, Pontmorlais, Merthyr, claimed JB5 5s. damages from the Block Light Company, Ltd., Manchester. Mr. F. S. Simons was for the plaintiff, and Mr. W. W. Meredith for the defendants. The plaintiff's case was that the defendants, by letters written to the plaintiff on the 27th February and 2nd March this year, claimed to be patentees of an incandescent mantle known as the "Block light," and they threatened the plaintiff with proceedings if he persisted in selling certain block lights, which he was legal- ly entitled to sell. By reason, however, of those letters, the plaintiff returned a number of block lights to the firm from which he had obtained them, and consequently suffered dam- age. For the defence, it was eaid that the com- plaint against the plaintiff was that he sold what were not block lights in boxes marked "block lights," and had, therefore, committed a breach of the Merchandise Marks Act. It was proved that-the mantles sold in no way infringed the defendants' rights. Most of the witnesses in the case were Jews, His Honour gave judgment for the plaintiff, for L2 2(3. and costs.
