The said trade-mark consists of the arbi- trary word “Compass ” and a pictorial repre- sentation of a mariner’s compass. These are arranged generally, as shown in the accompa- nying fac-simile, with the Words “Compass Brand Salmon ” and a pictorial representation of a mariner’s compass on awhite background, showing the various points of the compass. The words “ Com ass Brand ” are placed above the said mariner s compass and the word “ Sal- mon” below the same; but the words “Brand” and“ Salmon” may be omitted altogether from above and below the said mariner’s compass, or one or the other may be used in connection with the word “Compass” and the represen- tation of said mariner’s compass, and the re- mainin g Word omitted altogether, without de- parting froin the character and spirit of said trade-mark, the essential features of which consist, as before stated, of the word “ COM- PASS ” and the pictorial representation of a mariner‘s compass.

On the left-hand side of the fish, near its mouth, are usually printed the words “ Packed at Ko- dat, Alaska, by the” and on the right-hand side of the fish, near and below the tail, the words “Peninsular Trading & Fishing 00.” Two parallel rows of light-blue and blacklines are printed lengthwise across the label, partially covered by the picture of the compass and the background on which the picture of the fish is printed. The trade-mark above described is arranged and printed, for convenience, on the same band or strip of paper with the picture of the compass in black and white or any suitable colors, and the words on said label also in any suitable colors. This trade-mark has been used by said cor~ poration in its business of packing and selling salmon since the 15th day of May, A.D. 1889. The class of goods for which thesaid trade- mark is appropriated and to which it is ap- plied is hermetically—sealed goods, and the particular description of goods comprised in said cases upon which said trademark is used is salmon. It has been the custom from the beginning to print the said trademark in colors, as shown by the accompanying fac-simile, and to print it upon labels, which are afterward affixed to cans or packages containing the goods.

D. 1889. [L. S._| PENINSULAR TRADING J6; FISIIING 00.. By J. E. ADAMS, President. HARTLEY WILLIAMS, Secretary. \Vitnesses: J. M. SCOTCHLER, CHAS. E. GIBBS. 50 S5 60 65 70 75 80
