The Samson Wire Was patented and introduced four yean ago in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and New Zealand ; and th< principal claim sot fourth was itsbeingmad( Oval to prevent fraud. Yet, in the face o! these patents, firms—many of respecaltiy 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 point out to intending purchasers that any persen erecting Oval Win Fences, other than the Patent Oval Samson, renders himself liable for damages. The Patent Acts on this point are verj explicit; therefore, after this notice nc excuse can be made. Wehave had instances brought under oui notice where some persons have been so un principled as to mix the Spurious Ova Wire amongst the Patent Oval Samson ir order to make a sale, and damage the the reputation of the, genuine article. We have a great aversion to take legal proceedings in this matter, but shall be compelled to, iii self-defence, unless these practices are at once stopped.
