Ames Daily Intelligencer (Newspaper) - November 14, 1911, Ames, Iowa Ames daily intelligencer \ volume 44ames, Iowa tuesday november 14, 1911 number 36 prof h a King Don Sowers loses after silo Trost Rand in a Husker matter of great importance to Iowa Farmers hand Alwg try thread harder Patent interferes with worn. Of great importance to the Farmers of Iowa prof my. L. King has offered $><>.00 Reward for information Iii regard to old silo hearing on tins matter. The agricultural engineering department at the College has struck a Snag which threatens to interfere greatly in the work which it is doing Over the state by the installation of the Iowa silo. Vav thin the last year or two the t cited states silo company which is really a combination of a Large percentage of the stave silo manufacturers has been formed and operates under what is known As the harder latent issued june 27, 1899. This is probably the broadest Patent that has Ever been issued upon a modern Edlo. The Secretary of this so called Trust the United states silo Colas even gone so far As to Send out letters threatening with a Law suit any one building any kind of a round silo not licensed under the harder Patent. While there is really no con licit Between the masonry silos and the harder Patent. In his specifications or. Geo d. Harder of Cobleskill in. Y., makes the following statement i do not herein claim therefore the vertical opening from top to Bottom nor the round construction of the tank or silo nor the Means for closing formed in sections and inserted so As to be removable from the top downward and arranged to be pressed against the Wall or any part of the Wall in an outward direction As i am aware that these devices and elements Are very old in the same or analogous structures. My invention relates particularly to the special torm of Brace or stay piece for holding the edges of the opening at the proper distance from each other to prevent collapse and further in the special Means for holding the sections of the door firmly in neither the Brace referred to or its equivalent is required in any masonry silo. This Brace must not be confused with the hoops As it is entirely separate from the same and is used entirely to prevent the Staves crowding together. In support of this viewing the most recent court decisions upon the subject judge Hay of u. S. Circuit court Northern District of n. Y., stated in explaining the use of this Brace Quot it is obvious that the braces of the harder Patent would be superfluous in Stone or Brick however the last claim �?o4. In a silo or tank having a continuous opening from top to Bottom braces Between the edges of the Walls forming the opening door sections for closing the opening and reinforcing strips for the door sections substantially As described a is Broad and any stave silo with continuous doors is evidently an infringement upon this Patent which makes the formation of this so called silo Trust possible and even lawful. As has been pointed out by different judges in order to limit the scope of this Patent it will be necessary to find the old silos referred to by or. Harder in that portion of his specifications quoted above. The Experiment station is putting Forth an Effort through the columns of the press to locate any silos built in the summer of 1898 or before having the combination specified in or. Harder a claim. In order that any one knowing of such a Structure May consider it Worth his while to report the same Early m. L. King has placed $50 on Deposit to be paid to the first person reporting the location and giving the description of a silo which will conform sufficiently close to or. Harder a last claim to destroy its Validity. Such a silo must be round have continuous opening and reinforced jambs by which i meant simply Jamb heavier than the other Staves or the same weight As other Staves but double. The Brace mentioned will necessarily be included in continuous door As such a thing could not be built without the Brace. Also of course any silos must have the door sections mentioned in the claims. The idea is if possible to simply restrict the scope of this Patent to the evident purpose of the original inventor As set Forth in the Early part of his specifications.

Taft said a the deplorable delays in the administration of civil and criminal Law have received the attention of committees of the american bar association. I do not doubt for one moment that much of the Lawless violence and cruelty exhibited in lynchings is directly due to the uncertainties and injustice growing out of the delays in trials judgments and the executions thereof by our a in his message of december 1910, he said a one great crying need in the United states is the cheapening of the Cost of litigation by simplifying judicial procedure and expediting final judgment.

A Lawray Back in 1895, or. Taft then a judge of the United states circuit court said a a a the Opportunity publicly and freely to criticism judicial action is of vastly More importance to the body politic than the Community of courts and judges from unjust aspersion and attack. But non professional criticism also is not without its uses even if accompanied As it often is by direct attack upon the judicial fairness and motives of the occupants of the Bench for if the Law is but the essence of common sense the protests of Many average men May evidence a defect in judicial conclusions though based on the nicest Legal reasoning and profoundest a Home Talent play soon.
