Mr. SPENCER:

Some years ago a case was brought to my notice of a man in western Canada who had invented a very clever device, and sold it to a man simply on a matter of promissory notes. This second man came to Ottawa and got some patent attorney to take up the case, and although application had been made by the first applicant the attorney managed to get a patent for the second man before the first man had a chance. I think in such cases the patent attorney should be strictly dealt with. The original inventor failed eventually to get his patent, did not even get any money at all for it. He not only lost the patent, which was given to the second man, but the man who had done all the work was at a complete loss in every way.
