Judge Lacombe, of the United States Circuit Court, for the Southern District of New York, issued a temporary injunction on the 16th inst. against the American News Company in an injunction brought by Gen. Nelson A. Miles and Frederic Remington, to restrain the News Company from selling a book entitled " Remington's Frontier Sketches." it is claimed in the bill of complaint that this book of sketches is an infringement of the copyright covering " Personal Recollections of Gen. Nelson A. Miles," a book which was published by the Werner Company, of Akron, Ohio, and which was copyrighted by General Miles in 1896. The alleged infringing book purports to be published by the Werner Company. It consists of facsimile reproductions of fifteen sketches made by Frederic Remington as illus trations of General Miles's book. The temporary injunction is accompanied by an order, returnable November 25, directing the American News Company to show cause why an injunction should not issue pending the action. It is understood that other booksellers will be proceeded against. Suit will also be begun against the Werner Company."
