Ulhoo may, by the assent of both part

grant a patent to tho new applicant if
ho proves priority.
If the assent of both parties is not
given, tho Patent Olllco may tako ex
parte testimony from tho applicant
and givo him a patont if ho proves a
dato of invention earlier than tho dato
of tho filling of the application of tho
hrst patentee. A simi'ar provision ap
plies to rejected casr i and connoting
applications. Whoever proves by ex

made beforo tbo dato ot tho tiling ot

receive a patent.

an end to a vast amount ot litigation
