A VERDICT FOR THE GOULD & WATSON INSULATORS.

 

The Detroit Tribune of Feb. 21, makes the following note: ''The Gould & Watson Co., an Eastern concern founded for the dissemination of electrical appliances, sold a large number of insulators to the Detroit Electrical Works some time ago for use on street railways which are being built by the local concern in various parts of the country, including Texas. It was claimed after trial that the insulators were not all that they were represented to be, the composition of which they were formed yielding to the influence of the sun, and various other things which have no legitimate connection with rapid transit, and the Detroit company declined to remit until matters were straightened out. A replevin suit followed, resulting in a verdict yesterday afternoon for the foreign concern for $501.12."
