After reading the motion Mr. McManus proceeded to read the affidavits of Carl Peach, Hay Smith, Addison II. Cutting and Frank Duffany, all of whom were in the store when it is alleged that Ingleston expressed his opinion in regard to the case. Itay Smith and Frank Duffany were also present. Smith askod Ingleston how the case was going and he replied em phatically for Patch. Peach warned In gleston that he had no right to talk so about the case while lie was on the jury. Smith and Ingleston said that labor unions were a damage to the country, and a heated discussion followed. Hay Smith in his affidavit says that he was talking with Ingleston abuut unions. Smith said he thought Patch would win and Ingleston said lie "knew d n wi 11 he would." Ingleston said he had seen the strikers hanging around the Patch employes. At tin's time Smith swears lieach warned Ingleston that lie shouldn't talk in that way about the ease. Ingles ton said the unions were a damage to the country. He also states that Ingleston said that some members of the union had stolen their books and would not produce them at the trial. Addison Cutting swears that he was in Carl Beach's store and heard some of the conversation referred to, and a little later he met Ingleston on the street and asked him how the ase was coming out and Ingleston replied that Patch had a clear case, and while he might, not get thftliia-t tTauiiges that he asked for he wcmUt surely get a good sum. Cutting said he had hoped it would go the other way, and Ingleston replied: "By God, you needn't worry; it won't." Frank DufTany states in his affidavit that he heard Ingleston say that Patch would win the case and also that the unions were always sticking their noses mU) other people's business, and that they had harmed Patch and the Lincoln Iron works by boycotting their goods.

The affidavit of Charles J. Waters, the foreman of the jury, gives the result of the voting in the jury room. He also states that Ingleston first voted for the defendants and after holding out for 19 hours he agreed with the other jurors to give the plaintiff S2500. The affidavits of J. E. Kdgerton and E.

The fact that the Webb Granite com pany's quarries in Marlboro have been shut down has caused more or less com ment in Keene and it is thought that business tlure will be injured thereby. It appears that the Webb comyany can better fill such orders as it is now get ting from its recently opened quarries in Fitzwilliam, and that the bulk of its quarry business in the future will doubt less be done in that town. 1 he Marl boro quarries are valuable for paving stones, underpinnings and the like, and if large orders are received for such stone they can still be filled there. The Webb company has for 15 or 20 years kept a large force in Marlboro. The necessity of operating a private railroad of consid erable length and heavy grade is probably a handicap on the Marlboro quarry.
