By Thomas L.Stokes

     ...Action on the Symington nomination was deferred at the suggestion of Senator O'Mahoney, inveterate foe of monopoly. He pointed out to the committee the antitrust conviction by a Delaware federal court of Vehicular Parking, Ltd., on charges of monopoly and restraint of trade in manufacture, distribution and sale of parking meters, parts, services and accessories.
     The suit was brought in 1942. Mr. Symington, who had resigned in September, 1938, as president of Vehicular Parking, Ltd., and Kar-Park corporation, was not a party to the suit, but his part in organizing Vehicular and in creating a patent pool to keep out competition was described in detail in the court's order. Letters in which he was very frank about the pool arrangement and its purposes were put in evidence. One carried the injunction, "Kindly destroy this letter." It spoke about the ignorance of another person involved in the proceeding "of the great importance of masking the Vehicular development."
     The court said of Vehicular Parking, Ltd., that "though empowered by the state of Delaware," it has not since its inception manufactured or sold any product faintly resembling parking meters; and as far as the court can see has no facilities for research or development of such devices.' Bluntly, it is a patent-holding company."
     Describing the formation of the company in 1936 the court said that Mr. Symington and Vernon L. Taylor and John Howard Joynt, two defendants in the case, "formulated a plan to secure domination over the parking meter industry, then in its infancy. Defendant Joynt recommended the acquisition of a number of competing patents since patents 'could be used to advantage in discouraging competition." They agreed that the acquisition of patents would enable them to present 'an impressive array' and 'bluff' their competitors.
     "Symington and Defendants Joynt and Taylor planned to regulate the parking meter industry by inducing only 'reputable' manufacturers of parking meters or manufacturers 'with patent positions' to take licenses under patents which these defendants and Symington planned to acquire. These licenses were to fix uniform prices, terms and conditions of sale. All other manufactures were to be refused licenses."

Aqueduct Rider Thrown from His Mount and Fatally Injured
     New York, April 25.- At the Aqueduct race track yesterday Jockey Frank O'Leary was fatally injured and two other boys were badly shaken up. In the fifth race G.E. Wightman, McJoynt up, stumbled and fell, the jockey rolling out of harms' way and escaping with slight bruises and a shaking up. Pettifogger bumped into Wightman as the latter was falling and went up into the air turning a somersault and landing on his back. Hewitt was thrown some distance but he, was even less hurt than McJoynt. Randy, whom O'Leary was riding stumbled into the pair and threw O'Leary among them. He was kicked in the head by one of them and his head was crushed in. He was taken to St. Mary's hospital in Brooklyn, and later died of his injuries. The three horses escaped with severe injuries.

    Much interest is taken in the discovery of gold on the Joynt homestead in Quebec. It is stated that Sergeant-Major Bowen, late of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, hunting last autumn in the Laurentian Hills at Kazabazua, was told a story by his Indian guide which led to the discovery.
    According to legend, in 1820 the Indians of Western Quebec used to worship in a gully on the Joynt homestead. This gully is a remarkable natural sanctuary, for the cliff is so steep that the sun's rays cannot penetrate into it. A white man discovered gold in the gully, but apparently not in great quantity and the Indians, when mining began, abandoned it as a place of worship. Mr. Bowen, impressed by the legend, visited Joynt Farm, whose owner is 94 years of age, and got permission to blow up an old stump with dynamite. The discovery of gold followed the explosion. Mr. Joynt, who for 60 years has made a bare living on a none too productive farm, will it is now expected, probably become a millionaire.
    Mr. Bowen is peculiarly affected by the discovery. In former days he dressed in most sombre fashion, but now wears a smart blue suit, a vest of many colours, a gold watch with an immense chain, a 20-dollar hat and suede topped boots. In the middle of conversation he breaks into singing and dancing, and although 51 years of age takes his turn in the wheel of fortune much as a schoolboy regards a new toy.

     MILWAIN & JOYNT - The old family firm of Seymour & Joynt, established in the stove and tin ware trade of this city in 1852, was succeeded in 1863 by that of Milwain & Joynt. Since the year 1853 the ground on Front and First streets in the center of the block bounded south by Alder and north by Washington streets, has been the field of their operations which were always quite extensive. A few years since a brick, fronting 25 feet on Front street was erected, two stories high, and 90 feet deep, to which the past few months has been added a building of uniform appearance on First street, making a continuous salesroom on the first floor 200 by 20 feet in size. The upper story of the new building is calculated for the workshop, and the ??????? are equal in point of finish every way, to the most extensive stove and tin store on the Pacific coast. We are more than pleased to witness and record such evidence of prosperity in one city, and hope the enterprising proprietors may be fully compensated for their fine improvements by an increasing business. Notwithstanding the additional room given them by the erection of this new building, they still could find employment for more. The building was constructed by Mr. M.M. Burtos, and is in accordance with the good character of work that gentleman has the reputation of performing.

     O. Joynt, Esq., who has been absent from Oregon for nearly three years, has returned. Like all old citizens of Portland who have been absent for some time, he expresses his astonishment at the prodigious strides which the city has made during his absence.

Nov. 21, 1879

    This cause recently occupying the attention of our court and the bar generally, is based upon the following facts.
    Some years ago Hubbard Ward, James Daly and Orin Joynt entered into a copartnership in an extensive liquor business in San Francisco, under the firm name of Daly & Ward; Joynt being a dormant or silent partner. This firm, in 1875, was dissolved by the retirement therefrom of James Daly. Hubbard Ward then continued the business alone for a short time and finally formed a copartnership with Geo. C. Joynt, a nephew of Orin's, under the firm name of Hubbard Ward & Co.
     In 1877 Ward & G.C. Joynt were adjudged bankrupt and not being able to effect a settlement with their creditors, the business was broken up. About eight months ago several of the creditors of H.Ward & Co, assigned their claims, aggregating about $80,100, to John Lloyd, who acting upon the assertion of Hubbard Ward, that Orin Joynt was a partner in the late firm of H. Ward & Co., instituted an action against that firm in our circuit court, for the amount last named, claiming in the complaint that Orin Joynt was a partner. Immediately upon the filing of the complaint the plaintiff caused the property of Orin Joynt, situated in our city, to be attached.
    Mr. Orin Joynt admitted that the firm of H. Ward & Co were indebted to the plaintiff in the sum alleged but denied being a partner. This one point, partner or no partner, was the whole and only issue in the cause. The jury, after a trial lasting through several days, found from the evidence adduced for the defendant, Orin Joynt.

Sept 17, 1884

    Orrin Joynt, of Seymour & Joynt, who were in business here, where the Elite theater now stands, from 18?2 to 1870, is visiting friends in Portland.
