The Supremo Court sat long enough
this morning to adjourn for the day.
Charles W. Booth has made a separ
ate nnswer to tho complaint of Sarah
Anna Berger against himself and Chas.
S. Desky for the cancellation of a deed.
A summary ot his allegations and de
nials is here given. At tho tlmo ot
execution of n deed of trust by Joseph
Booth the grantor wns not possessed
of the principal part ot tho land which
Is tho subject of complaint, nn area of
208 3-10 acres, but had only a life es
tate in it. Whatever interest the plain
tilt may havo acquired In that land,
by tho deed of trust or otherwise, had,
long prior to tho date of the deed from
plaintiff to this defendant, been lost to
her through tho statute of limitations,
by reason of tho adverso holding of
Annie Booth, afterward Annie Long,
the mother ot plaintiff nnd ot this de
fendant. As to all tho Pauoa property
mentioned In the trust deed, tho plain
tiff had no Interest therein except the
right of residence and maintenance on
tho premises, which right was lost by
plaintiff upon her becoming forisfami
liated and through adverso holding.
Plaintiff was not Ignorant of tho
value ot tho Interest she convoyed to
defendant, but hnd Independent advice
tncreupon. Dctendaut admits ho is
brother of plaintiff, but denies that ho
has knowlcdgo of tho vnltio of tho lands
In question not possessed by plaintiff
or easily obtainable by her. Tho land
subject to tho agrcoment with Chas.
S. Desky was, at the tlmo of tho execu
tion of tho deed, pasture land of in
ferior quality nnd had but little ac
tual value. Defendant was advised
that the interest ot plaintiff In the
land' was without value except for tho
purpose ot saving litigation and quiet
ing title. Ho hnd heard that plaintiff
said she would tako 13,000 for her In
terest, nnd ho tendered that amount
with a qultclnlra deed for her to exe
cute In San Francisco. Tho deed was
executed September IS, 1898. Negotia
tions with defendant Desky did noc be
gin in August, 1808, but In February,
1899. Plaintiff hnd not for many years
reposed great confidence nnd trust In
this defendant. Ho had not communi
cated with plaintiff by letter since 1895.
All tho charges of fraud, etc., aro de
nied. Neither at the tlmo of receiving tho
deed from plafntlff nor for mnny
mouths thereafter did this defendant
