**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,
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 Justice ROADHOUSE
today. Thus far he has refused to talk about the affair.

**Suicide of an Unknown Man -- Coroner PARKER was summoned to Castroville
last Saturday forenoon to hold an inquest on the body of an unknown man who
was found dead in his room that morning. A glass about half full of water
in which had been dissolved a quantity of cyanide of potassium, and an
unopened bottle of strychnine were found on a stand at the head of the bed.
The deceased got off the south-bound train, which reached Castroville at
noon Friday, and secured a room at the hotel, paying for it in advance.
Upon his person was found $17.60 in coin but nothing that would lead to his
identity. He was apparently about 30 years of age, 6 feet in height, fair
complexion and light hair and mustache. He was well dressed and had the
appearance of a laboring man. The coroner’s jury rendered a verdict to the
effect that the deceased came to his death from poison voluntarily
administered by his own hand. The remains were brought to the undertaking
parlors of W.M. VANDERHURST in Salinas and buried in the potters field on
Since holding the inquest Coroner PARKER has received a letter from
B.E. HOLLOWAY, a Hollister druggist, stating that a man answering the
description of the deceased bought an ounce of strychnine at his store on
Friday. He gave his name as J. HUNT, and also wanted a pound of cyanide of
potassium, saying that he wanted to poison squirrels. HOLLOWAY didn’t have
the cyanide of potassium and the man got it at the store of WEAVER & WENTZ.
He then went to the station and bought a ticket for Paso Robles, but got
off the train at Castroville, procured a room and drank the fatal draught.

Peter WEIMER, a pioneer, aged 82, died recently at Josephine, San Luis
Obispo county. Deceased was at Coloma, Eldorado county, with Mr. MARSHALL,
when gold was first discovered in California, and his wife, who died some
time ago, always carried on her person the piece of gold found on that
memorable occasion, and though often offered fabulous prices, would never
part with the souvenir.

place her horse suddenly shied, throwing 2 wheels of the buggy over the

whole thing from falling. Assistance soon arrived and rescued Mrs. RICKARD
from her perilous position.
