Insurgents.
VICTORIA, B. C Sept. 6.— According to
mail advices received from Manila by
the steamer Glenogle, the officers, crew
and passengers of the looted steamer
Saturnus are safe and uninjured at Tar
lac, which is supposed to be the rebel cap
ital city, as Aguinaldo and his staff make
their headquarters there.
The American, published by the united
States soldiers at Manila, says the cap
ture of the Saturnus by tne Filipinos was
the result of plans carefully laid and car
ried out by the insurgents, who were fully
aware that a large amount of ready cash
?nd a valuable cargo was on board. They
needed "oil" for their political machinery,
a« well as for the lamps, so the cash came
as handy as the petroleum that the
steamer carried. The Saturnus was fully
insured against loss, even the risk of war,

IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Decision by Judge York in the
Superior Court of Los
Angeles.
PASADENA. Sept. 6.— ln the Superior
Court of Los Angeles to-day Judge York
declared the inheritance tax law uncon
stitutional. The case was that of Miss

have the valuation of an annuity reduced.
Mrs. Mary E. Howard, deceased, left
Miss Bixby the interest at 7 per cent on
$5000, the principal to go to gome educa
tional institution. The Insurance Com
missioner figured that Miss Bixby, now
over 60. would live long enough to make
her annuity worth $2900. The inheritance
tax is 5 per cent. Judge York ruled that
such a law is unconstitutional. Judge J.
H. Merriam of this city, attorney for Miss
Bixby, received the decision to-day.

MURDERERS OF
DAVIS CONFESS
Robbery the Motive for
the Crime.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
BAKERSFIEI.D, Sept. 6.— Kern County
jail certainly holds the men— Francisco
Duarte and Pedro Barragan— who mar-
dered Barber John C. Davis on October
18, 1897. The fact developed to-day at the
preliminary hearing of Barragan.
Some time ago Duarte made a confes
sion at Hanford that Barragan told him
he killed Davis for robbery when he was
traveling and stealing with Barragan.
To-day Duarte repeated the story in
court. John E. Malcom of Ventura
County also swore that Barragan told
him he had killed Davis." The testimony
disconcerted Barragan. When the mur
dered man's widow took the stand Barra
gan broke down and shed tears. After be
ing held to answer and returned to Jail
Barragan went to pieces and on request
was returned to court and coolly told the
details of the cold-blooded killing. He
made out Duarte to be the instigator and
guilty one. He told how they arrived
rrm' Hanford on stolen horses about an
hour before the killing, and after getting
whisky started away and then returned
for ropes and money. They tied their
horses near Davis' home and started up
town after ropes. Then. Barragan claims,
Duarte said: "We will go up the street
and the first man we meet we will hold
up and rob." After going a block or so
they met Davis, got within six feet of
him and shot him. Duarte claims that
Barragan did the shooting and divided
the booty, ti
Tne Sheriff's office is satisfied that Bar
ragan is the guilty one and will yet own
it. Sheriff Borgwardt of Kern County and
Sheriff Buckner of Kings, who worked up
the case, are receiving great praise. They
have been working on. the clew since last
September.
VALLEY ROAD RAPIDLY
NEARING COMPLETION
STEEL FOR* ALL* BRIDGES NEAR
LY READY TOR DELIVERY.
Officials Make a Tour of Inspection
and Make a Report on Progress
of Construction Along
the Line.
Vice-President A. H. Payson, Director
F. W. Van Slcklen, Director W. A. Bls
sell and Chief Engineer W. B. Storey re
turned yesterday from a trip of inspec
tion' over the line of the Valley road as
far as Stockton.
They found the work progressing 1 fa
vorably all along the line, and such sat
isfactory advancement has been made
that they now consider the completion of
the road to its Point Richmond terminal
by January 1 a foregone conclusion.
While the work on the Middle River has
only advanced as far as the placing of
piles, yet the foundations for the Old
River bridge are all In place and the
work on the bridge over the San Joaquin
has advanced so far that the laborers are
now employing themselves on the super
structure, the steel for which has now
arrived from the factories of the East.
Although the factories have not as yet
delivered the orders lor the steel to be
utilized In the construction of the other
two bridges, yet the first shipment is ex
pected to arrive within the next three
weeks, and then the work can be pushed
ahead so as to allow of them being fin
ished within a short time after the struc
ture which is to span the San Joaquin.
Work on the new freight depot which
is to emerge from the reconstruction of
tho old Hathaway warehouse will
shortly be commenced, and when once
begun it will be but a matter of a few
weeks to rush It through so as to open
offices in it and have everything ready
for the first trainload of merchandise to
arrive in this city.
The only matter experiencing any great
delay is the new boat to be used
on the ferry service between this city and
Point Richmond. The contract is with
the Union Iron Works, and thus far that
institution has only succeeded in com
pleting two boiler tubes and a link of the
wheel chain. So there is now no telling
the exact date or even the year that will
witness the launching of the n#w oraft.
However, the Ocean Wave, the vessel
brought down from the Sound for that
purpose, has been put in excellent trim, '
and is all ready to take care of the pas
sengers as soon as the cars of the Val
ley road shall haul them to the Point
Richmond wharf.
Vice President Payson yesterday Issued
the following circular of elections and ap
pointments of Valley Road officials, which
becomes effective October 1:

Music for Nervousness.
Some scientists have claimed that music has i
the power to soothe the n»rves. But the quick- !
est way to cure nervousness is to strengthen
the nervous system. We know of nothing j
which will accomplish this quicker than Hos- ;

cine that is successful above all others In the
treatment of blood, stomach and liver diseases.

CARRIE SANKEY
HAS DEFEATED
HER GUARDIAN
Recovers Judgment of
All Her Property.
WAS INFLUENCED BY COGGINS
HE MUST ACCOUNT FOB. ALL
MONEYS SHE ADVANCED.
Judge Belcher Decides That Question
able Advantage Was Taken of
Plaintiff's Youth and
Simplicity.
Charles Coggins and his wife Mary
must grlve their presents back. Judge
Belcher yesterday rendered a decision
canceling deeds to nearly $40,000 worth of
property executed by Carrie E. Sankey
to her guardians, Mr. and Mrs. Cogglns.
several years ago. Miss Sankey made the
deeds, it was proved during the trial,
while under the undue influence of her
guardians.
When Miss Sankey was but 13 years of
age her uncle, Samuel Sankey, died In
Pennsylvania leaving a large estate. She
Inherited property worth about $40,00*3,
and as she was at that time employed in
the Cogglns household she became their
ward. Soon after his appointment as
guardian Cogglns. the testimony showed,
immediately began to systematically
wrest the property from her. Miss
Sankey was made to pay all the bills of
the household under the belief that she
was compelled to do so, diamonds were
bought and she footed the bills, and the
Coggins home was furnished in palatial
style. One by one her real estate hold
ings were transferred to Coggins and his
wife and a short time ago, when Carrie
blossomed into womanhouu, she awoke to
the realization that she was penniless.
She immediately brought suit to recover
all the property transferred to her guar
dian and from that time no longer lived
in the Coggins household.
Coggins and his wife contested her
action on the ground that they executed
all of the deeds in g/jod faith and "for
Berviees rendered." Nearly ten days were
consumed in the trial of the case, and
during that time it developed, in addition
to the fact given heretofore, that the so
called services which Coggins valued at
$4u,iaw were practically worth nothing. In
giving judgment Judge Belcher decided
all points of the controversy in Miss
Sankeys favor. He held that the d
were made under undue influence and
without consideration, and in addition to
ordering their cancellation the court
ordered the defendants to account to the
plaintiff for all properties which have
come into their hands through purchase
by Miss Sankey as well as moneys re
ceived from her "for her use and benefit."
Concert Season Opens To-Night.
The concert season will be inaugurated
