The second is numbered 8363 dated 1902 entitled “Improved Igniting Device for Miners’ Safety Lamps and the like” was applied for on 10 April 1902 and accepted on 2 April 1903. However, some difficulties must have arisen since the complete specification was left with the Patent Office some months after the application date, on 9 January 1903.
