000,000 brought by C II. Hayniond, ol
Somervlllp. for alleged conversion of
certain royalties In connection with
tho production of petroleum.
Counsel for Jtayuiond sought to
show by the testimony of friends of
Mr Rogers In New Bedford mid Fair

tickets giving n record of calls be-
tweon New York and tho homo of .Mr.

Several witnesses admitted that
they had talked with Mr Rogers wltji
in the past few weeks, but all declared
that ho was much changed.
In support of the claim that Mr
Rogers was too III to appear, four wit
nesses were heard Tin llrst was
Urban 11. Iiroughtou, the son-lu-lnw or
Mr. Rogers. Hu said that sine July
22, when Mr. Rogers was taken ill In
New York, his father-in-law had been
unable to transact any business, and
that soon after that date Mr. Rogers
told him that Iiroughtou must pick up
all his business and carry on the af

that he would not hold Mr. Iiroughtou

The last witness was Dr. Pratt, who
told tho court that he could not Mate
exactly what would be the ultimate re
sult of the attack lust July, nor to
what "it was due. Ho thought It might
bo apoplexy, or perhaps a clot on the
brain, or a slight paralytic shock.
Dr Pratt refused to sav whether
Mr. Rogers' condition or reluctance to
testify in the Massachusetts suit was
due to ills feur that he might bo called
upon to give evidence In the case of
