Abstract

"A Suit By Mr. Edison", Newark Advertiser. TAE has begun a suit against Gilliland and Tomlinson, who recently sold to Lippincott the agency held by Gilliland for the sale of phonographs for $250,000, for alleged breach of contract, and on representations that they received only $75,000. TAE says that after selling the phonograph for $500,000, the two sold the agency to Lippincott, making him the sole owner of the business. Tomlinson denies the allegations that they told TAE they would only receive $75,000, accepted $250,000 in stock, and then sold them back to Lippincott.
