Business Notices--OST THIS ADVERTISEMENT SHOULD BE CAREFULLY READ AND REMEMBERED BY EVERYONE INTERESTED IN FENCING. THE PATENT OYAL SAMSON FENCE WIRE! Has now been before the public for four years, and during that time 5,000 TONS HAVE BEEN SOLD, Giving very great satisfaction, in proof of which we hold numerous testimonials from well-known colonists ; and the demand is daily increasing to such an extent, that numerous spurious imitations have lately been introduced in the various markets of Australia and New Zealand, for the sole purpose of damaging the reputation of the Patent Oval Samson Wire. The Samson Wire Was patented and introduced four years ago in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and Now Zealand ; and the principal claim set fourth was itsbeingmade Oval to prevent fraud. Yet, in the face of these patents, firms—many of respectable standing—have, for the sake of a paltry commission, lent themselves to the introduction of various spurious imitations, which render them liable to actions at law, and annoyance and disappointment to the users.
We would poinfc out to intending purchasers that any person erecting Oval Wire Fences, other than the Patent Oval Samson, renders himself liable for damages. The Patent Acta on this point are very explicit; therefore, after this notice no excuse can Be made. Wehave had instances brought under our notice where some persons have been so unprincipled as to mix the Spurious Oval Wire amongst the Patent Oval Samson in order to make a sale, and damage the the reputation of the genuine article. Wo have a great aversion to take legal proceedings in this matter, but shall be compelled to, in self-defence, unless these practices are at once stopped. The public, when purchasing, are therefore cautioned to see that each coil bears a tin tally thus ; PATENT OVAL SAMSON WIRE, IN OVAL ; And the Patentee’s Tally or Trade Mark : M B . R IN PADLOCK.
