Decision in the Uutted States Circuit
Court by Judge Grier.
The case of E. A. L. Roberts vs. the
Reed Torpedo Company et al., in
volving the right , to use torpedoes, in
oil wells, was decided in the U.S.
cult Court, at Philadelphia, on Wednes-' I
day of list week. The cue first came
up in the Western District, and a
preliminary injunction was grant
ed by Judge McCaw/lase, but counsel
agreed to argue It in the Eastern District,
for the accommodation of Judge Grier.
The Philadelphia-la:at; in a statement
of the case, says: •
Within the last few years the produe
tion fn oil wells has been greatly increas
ed by lowering down into Went large
iron flasks containing six -tote& ixitinds
of gun powder or --nitro-glycerine, and
then exploding the mass by means of a
percussion cap on the top of, the flask,
on to which cap a weight :mils dropped
from the top of the well. ' It was estate -
fished by proofa in the case that moat
remarkable results had • been 'produced
te oil region bv the introduction of
the torpedo by Air. B. L Roberts, the
plaintiff. Thus in the Eureka well,
whibli'was produdng only three barrels
a day, a Roberts' torpedo was exploded;
and its production i
to 180
barrels a day; Hyner was incr
from SW 30 barrels. per day; Key
well from 5 to 175 barrels per day; Neill
well from 3 to 80 barrels per day; Tarr
Homestead well was increased 65 barrels
per day; Keystone well from 15' to 200
barrels per day.
These were , only a few out of rismteruile
eases. where Roberts had succeeded.
The animal production of oil due to'the
use of the torpedo Was adMitted by de
fendants in their,,argumeet alefedy
have reached several millions of dollars.
After Roberts had suepeediel in 'intro
alucing his invention, Mr:Reed; of Titus
ville, united . with' a: former!.agent of
Roberts, Mr. eitaratOn,. and set -u p clairn
as a rival Inventor to Roberts. They or
ganized the "Reed .Torpedo compeny;"
the object of which *as to nialteruad sell
to oil men torpedoes at a ; ow rate, and to
defeat Roberts's patent: The defendants
based their claim' 'upon certain trials
made by. Reed of torpedoes in 1863. The
defendants did not deny, that they were
infringing the Robertspatimt, but insisted
that it was void by, reason of what Reed
had dohe. The Plaintiff contended that
Reed was merely en unsuccessful eX.-
-Peaimanier •whe bad abandoned his tor
pedo as worthless before Roberts's patent.
was issued.
The oil men united with. defendants to
defeat the patent, and raised a large
fund. They were repreaented at the ar
gueient by Charles M. Keller, of New.
