The Hon. Sir Ford North, Judge of the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice, Aug. 10, 1899. granted to The London Times an injunction restraining Mr. Lane, a publisher, from reprinting speeches of the Earl of Rosebery admittedly taken from The Times. The Judge held that the reporter had a copyright in his report, and that this copyright hadbeen acquired by The Times. ’In November, 1899, this decision, on tne appeal of Mr. Lane, was reversed by the Appeal Court, which held that a reporter had no copyright of the report of speeches giving not only ideas, but words in which ideas were expressed. The Times then appealed the case to the House of Lords.- * • r^[ - ----- - ------GERMANY'S MANY PRIZES.Estimated that She Will Get 250 Awardsat the Paris Exposition.BERLIN, Aug. 6.—Tfieodor Wolf wires to the Berliner Tageblat.t from Paris thatGermany will get more first prizes at theexposition than any other foreign nation.He estimates the number at 250.Germany, will be first in industrial arts,with 20 Grand Prix and 100 gold medals.
