PATTISON NOT ILL
San Mateo Man, Sued by
Servants,' Will Try to Prove
Chauffeur's Health Good
• Nicholas J. McNamara of San Mateo,
defendant ln two $25,000 damage suits
brought by former family servants,
is preparing to introduce testimony
before the Jury in Redwood City to
show that the health'of Fred Pattlson,
plaintiff in the case now being tried,
was not Impaired by his Incarceration
in a New York jail. Attorney Ed
ward A. Cunha, of counsel for Mc-
Namara has been in San Mateo for
two days obtaining witnesses who
will attempt to refute the statement
of Pattlson that he has been unable
to work owing to a tubercular trou
ble brought on by his imprisonment
In an underground cell.
Pattison told the jury that he went
to work on a building being erected
In San Mateo for his uncle, A. J. Pat
tlson. chauffeur for Captain A. H.
Payson, but was compelled to quit
the job owing to his weak condition.
McXamara's attorneys believe they
can prove that Fred Pattison did al
most all the work on the building.
When the hearing of the Pattison
case Is resumed Tuesday morning it
is expected that Miss Gladys McNa
mara will take the stand In her
father's behalf and tell of her hur
ried return from a finlshiag school
In Belgium to effect a reconciliation
of her parents.
The most peculiar feature of the
case is that the entire McNamara
family is trying to prove that Mrs.
McNamara Is suffering mentally and
physically from the effects of strong
drink and that she was under the in
fluence of liquor when enticed away
by her servant, while the suing serv
ants are attempting to prove that
Mrs. McNamara was a moderate
drinker and that she was sober when
