San Francisco, Aug. 3.- Richard V. Dey, in whose hands the $500.000 contract was said to have been placed, was called to the witness stand in the trial of the Angus-Craven case. He stated that after the departure of Mrs. Craven for the east in February, 1895, he met Stephen Roberts, her agent, with the view of coming to some agreement to relinquish her claims to part of the Fair estáte. Roberts argued that as Mrs. Craven had persuaded Senator Fair to make a will in favor of nis children instead of tying up the estáte, and also giving Charles Fair $500,000 to make up for what he did not recelve from his mother, she ough.t to receive $1,000,000. Witness expressed the opinión that $500,000 was the limit. Finally an agreement was drawn up to the effect that Mrs. Craven was to receive that amount, when the document dated Sept. 24, 1894, had been admitted to probate.
