ently have do regard for the law at all."

Court Holds License :
Device of Patentee ;
to Fix Price Void
" NEW TORk" March 24. -The right of a
patentee under the patent law to tlx 'the
price at which a patented article roust
be sold at retail was denied by Judge
Augustus Hand in ' a ' decision handed
down yesterday' in the United States dis
trict court. A suit brought by the Victor
Talking Machine company to restrain R.
H. Maoy A Co. from selling phonographs
and records at a lower price than' that
fixed by the Victor company was dis
missed by Judge Hand. '
Counsel for R..H. Macy & Co. had al
leged that in consequence of a decision
J by the United States supreme court In
: the Banatogen case to the effect that the
' owner of a patent could not control the
retail price, the Victor company devised
a system by which it sold none of its
patented articles, but disposed of them
under a license system at a stipulated
(tries to the ultimate consumer.
The Maoy firm - refused to abide by
this plan. Judge Hand ruled that there
was only a form difference between the
fianatogen case and the Victor case.

$80,000 FOR BARN AT THE FAIR
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, . March 24. (Special.)
The thoroughbred hog with a ped-
trree.and the unregistered poor man
without a pedlgree fouht it out on
the floor of the house today- and both
won. I The hog won first when an
appropriation for $80,000 was up
toy the building of a hog barn at the
state fair grounds and the appropri
ation won. '
The poor man without a pedigree
and a. slim pocketbook won In the
second round,' but it was a close call
and a bitter fight. '; The matter was
upon an appropriation of $150,000
for the erection of a public hospital
in Omaha and charges were made
that the friends ot the hog and the
friends of tbe poor man had tied up
for mutual benefits.
Norton, Taylor. Osterman. Lan'lgan.
Cronin .and a few others were against
the appropriation, Norton On' the plea' he
has made throughout the session that it
was spending money of the people when
it was not necessary.
Tailor Jolna Opposition. .
Taylor Joined with htm In opposition to
the appropriation because he said it
would mean that more money would
have to. be spent at the next session to
tqulp the building.
Friends of the bill. Relst.er, Oreenwalt.
Hunter. Negley, Richmond, Burgess,
Alnla,y. Bvans. Hoffmelater.: Meredith
and, others talked In favor of the bin
and how . much it would mesn ' to the
poor man who could not afford to send
a member of his family to a hospital
because of lack of funds and the crowded
condition ot Omaha hospitals..'
All of the six members from Lancaster
county voted with, the twelve DoukIus
county men to engross this bill for third
reading. This alone gave it over one
third of the votes needed to get It
through committee of the whole.
A motion was first offered by Mr.
Scott to postpone Indef Inltelv. This lost.
61 to 4S. The division on the motion to
advance the bill for third reading a

At its head It la not more than three or
four miles aide. If this neck of land
were effectively held by the allies. Turk
ish communication with the strong po
sitions on the peninsula would be Im
possible. A dispatch from Athens, received by
way ot Parts, says an allied fleet resumed
