The court also made an order permitting M.J. HYNES, guardian of Loren COBURN, to sell a portion of the King City ranch. It is understood that the Spreckles Sugar Refinery has made an offer of $100,000 for a portion of the big holding and that it will be accepted by the guardian.

Quite an excitement was caused in Daly City in the vicinity of South Park avenue Tuesday, when Catherine CASEY, the 14-year-old foster child of Mrs. RAILTON, was taken in charge and then to Redwood City before Judge BUCK of the Superior Court. It was charged that Mrs. RAILTON has been very cruel to the little girl, at times beating and chocking her, so that she ran away from home and would not return. The childís story was verified by several neighbors and Judge BUCK took her in charge.
Charged With Murder
Fred LEVY, former timekeeper for Clark & Henry, has been charged with the murder of John ANDERSON, former gold instructor of the Beresford County Club, with whom he was hunting when latter met his death.
LEVY and ANDERSON were out hunting about two weeks ago in the hills back of the Walter HOBART estate. The following morning ANDERSONís body was found. When LEVY was arrested he told so many conflicting stories as to the cause of his companionís death that the police officers held him on suspicion. The officers are now working on the theory that LEVY killed ANDERSON in a pistol duel over a young woman.
