"SALDIVA--Fatal Shooting -- Francisco SALDIVA Killed by John DUNNE in a Dispute over a Drink -- Francisco SALDIVA, a tamales peddler, was fatally shot by a gambler named John L. DUNNE, at Vic BARLOGIO's saloon on Main street, between 4 and 5 o'clock last Sunday morning. The evidence adduced at the coroner's inquest held on Monday evening was substantially as follows: Frank CONNER testified that he went into BARLOGIO's saloon a little after 4 o'clock Sunday morning and there found DUNNE and SALDIVA. DUNNE ordered the drinks and SALDIVA asked CONNER to join them. After imbibing DUNNE refused to pay for SALDIVA's and CONNER's drinks. After wrangling a short time DUNNE drew his pistol and began striking at SALDIVA who was unarmed. SALDIVA backed out of the saloon and went to his home on Castroville street. A few minutes afterwards CONNER met SALDIVA on the street going towards BARLOGIO's saloon and saw him enter. A moment afterwards the saloon door opened, struggling men emerged upon the sidewalk and the report of a pistol was heard. Immediately afterwards SALDIVA started up Castroville street, entered his home and died in about 5 minutes. Vic BARLOGIO corroborated CONNER's testimony in regard to DUNNE's refusal to pay for the drinks and his attempt to beat SALDIVA with his pistol. He further testified that SALDIVA returned to the saloon brandishing a knife, when DUNNE drew his pistol but did not fire until SALDIVA had backed out to the sidewalk, when a shot was heard. DUNNE came into the saloon again exclaiming that SALDIVA had cut him and that he had shot SALDIVA, at the same time exhibiting a bleeding hand. Joe BOTILLER testified that when SALDIVA returned to the saloon he struck at DUNNE with a knife and, as he backed out of the saloon, was shot by DUNNE from the inside. Dr. Dorus BRUMWELL, who performed the autopsy, testified that the bullet entered under the collar bone, pursued a backward course when was it deflected downward, striking the 4th rib and fracturing it, when it took an upward and backward course lodging in the muscles of the back. In its course the bullet ruptured an artery causing death from hemorrhage. The coroner's jury, which was composed of John H. SMITH, W.J. SMITH, W.W. ZABALA, J.E. RIORDAN, C.Z. HEBERT, J.F. SNYDER, I. FERGUSON and Fred HUTCHINSON, rendered the following verdict: We, the undersigned jurors summoned to appear before John PARKER, coroner of Monterey county, Salinas, on the 22nd day of August, 1892, to inquire into the cause of the death of Francisco SALDIVA, having been duly sworn according to law and having made such inquisition, after inspecting the body and hearing the testimony adduced, upon an oath, each and all do say that we find the deceased was named Francisco SALDIVA, was a native of Central America, aged about 35 years, that he came to his death on the 21st day of August, 1892, in this county, by a pistol shot fired by John DUNNE. All of which we duly certify by this inquisition, in writing by us. Signed this 22nd day of August, 1892. DUNNE was arrested and lodged in the county jail. He will have his preliminary examination on a charge of murder before JusticeROADHOUSE today. Thus far he has refused to talk about the affair." Source: Salinas Weekly Index, 25 Aug 1892.

"SARGENT--Death of B.V. SARGENT -- Ex-State Senator B.V. SARGENT died at his home in Monterey about 10 o’clock last Monday forenoon in the 65th year of his age. The malady to which he succumbed was a combination of la grippe and pneumonia brought on by getting wet and cold while driving cattle across the Carmel river to his San Francisquito ranch a few days before. He seemed to be getting along pretty well until last Friday night, when he suffered a relapse, became unconscious and remained in a comatose state until he died. Dr. GYDISON of Salinas and Dr. LANE of San Francisco were in attendance, but medical skill was unavailing to save their patient. Surrounded by all the members of his family the spirit of Bradley Varnum SARGENT winged its flight to those viewless realms on the other side of the river, where vast throngs are gathering as the stream of time flows onward. B.V. SARGENT was born in Grafton, New Hampshire in 182-[last digit illeg], and came to California in 1849. In the fall of 1850, in company with his 3 brothers, J.P., R.C. & J.L. SARGENT, he went into the stock business in San Joaquin county and, in the course of time, became the owners of large tracts of land in that county and also in the counties of Santa Clara and Monterey. B.V. SARGENT took up his residence in Monterey in 1858 and resided there until his death. A few years ago the brothers dissolved partnership and divided up their possessions, the property in Monterey County, estimated to worth $250,000, falling to B.V. SARGENT. B.V. SARGENT was a Democrat in politics, but of very liberal views. He was an affable big-hearted gentleman, a true friend, chari- [about 3 lines are illegible due to damaged newspaper]…prominently mentioned for Congress in this district. He was a leading member of the Masonic fraternity, being a Past Master of Monterey Lodge No. 217, F.&A.M.; a member of Salinas Chapter No. 59, R.A.M.; and a member of Watsonville Commandery No. 22, Knights Templar. The deceased was married to a most estimable lady at Mokelumne Hill in 1856, besides whom he leaves 3 sons and 1 daughter, all of whom are married and residents of this county. They are J.P., R.C. & B.V., Jr., and Mrs. M.M. GRAGG. The funeral took place at Monterey at 2 o’clock p.m., yesterday under the auspices of Monterey Lodge, No. 217, F.&A.M., Watsonville Commandery of Knights Templar acting as escort.
