Whenever a registered owner of a trade-mark, or his agent, makes oath before a magistrate
that he has a reason to believe and does believe, stating the grounds of his belief,
that a bottle, siphon, barrel, platter, vessel or other thing to which is affixed
a trade-mark belonging to him is being used or filled, or has been sold or offered
for sale, by any person whomsoever in violation of the preceding section, then the
magistrate may issue a search warrant to discover the thing and cause the person having
it in possession to be brought before him and may thereupon inquire into the circumstances,
and if on examination, he finds that such person has been guilty of the offense charged,
he may hold the offender to bail to await the action of the grand jury, and the offender
shall also be liable to an action on the case for damages, for such wrongful use of
such trade-mark at the suit of the owner thereof, and the party aggrieved, shall also
have his remedy according to the course of equity to enjoin the wrongful use of his
trade-mark, and to recover compensation therefor in any court having jurisdiction
over the person guilty of such wrongful use.
