Defendant continued his evidence, and described the disagreements which, he said, had taken place between himself and plaintiff during the photography of some of the scenes for the picture.
Witnesses called by the defendant said that actresses had been substituted during the progress of photographing which would have made the finished pic- ture ridiculous in the eyes of the public,
Evidence was concluded and counsels' addresses commenced, but had not con- cluded when the court adjourned till to-morrow (?) ?.
