Editor's Notes

The recent decision of Judge Coxe in the suit of TAE et al, against the Cyclostyle Co, on his Electric Pen patent, in no way effects the Mimeograph, which is protected by entirely distinct patents. # The remarks of Judge Coxe re the comparative merits of the two devices which were under consideration by him, refers only to the Electric Pen, and a machine called the Cyclostyle. # The superiority of the Mimeograph over all other manifolding machines is universally admitted. # The suits which we are pressing against the Cyclostyle Co for infringement of our type-writer patents, are not effected by this decision, and are being vigorously pushed to a hearing. # It is needless to add that TAE still considers his patent for Autographic printing as being infringed by unlicensed users of the method and as appeal will be taken from Judge Coxe's decision to the Supreme Court of the United States. # We feel it our duty to put you in possession of the facts concerning this decision, as the items which have appeared in the various newspapers, fail to designate particularly the Electric Pen patent, in referring to the ruling of the Judge, and consequently an impression is left with some readers that it is the Mimeograph which is effected, which is entirely erroneous.
