A SUIT AGAINST MARCONI
New Yorkers Accuse the Italian Inventor of Infringement.
NEW YORK, Oct. 18.--The New England Wireless Telegraph and Telephone Company, which claims to hold the patent issued to Prof. Amos E Dolbear, of Medford, Mass., has brought suit in the United States to enjoin Prof. G. Marconi from using the wireless system in the United States.
Professor Dolbear asserts that he antedated Marconi's discovery of the possibility of transferring electric currents without the use of wires by many years.
The first contract for the use of wireless telegraphy for commercial purposes has been given by the International Power Company, of Providence, to the New England Company.
