Cases Pending, in Progress, Settled, With Interesting Details to San Mateo County Folks
The papers on appeal from the justice court of the Fifth Township in the case of W.J. DEBENEDETTI against C.V. THOMSPSON, have been received and filed in the county clerk’s office.
R.S.K. MacMILLEN has brought suit against the Crocker Estate Company to compel the later to execute a deed to lots 29 and 30 in block 19, Crocker Tract, to him. The complaint recites the fact that in 1907 an agreement was entered into between the parties whereby plaintiff was to pay a monthly installment on the property until the full amount was paid. Plaintiff claims to have done this and now wants a deed to the property, which defendant refuses to give him.
Christina ETTLIN has commenced an action against F.A. SMACK to recover the sum of $490 for rent of a certain building in Daly City. Defendant rented the place on November 26, 1912. Mr. SMACK succeeded William RAVEN, who leased the property on September 1, 1911, for a period of three years. He became bankrupt in 1912 and defendant bought his stock of liquor and succeeded to the business held by RAVEN.
Ethel Soule COOK has brought suit for an interlocutory decree of divorce against her husband, Joseph W. COOK, on statutory grounds.
The National Brewing Company has brought suit against F.O. BRANDT to recover the sum of $1648,98 for merchandise, ware and goods delivered defendant during the two years last past.
The Bank of Italy has brought foreclosure proceedings against R.S. HARRIS to recover the sum of $500, costs of suit and attorney fees in the sum of $150 and the further sum of $125 for money advanced in connection with the property. The real estate on which the mortgage is to be foreclosed consists of a portion of block 35, Eastern Addition to the town of San Mateo.
Horace HILL Jr., et al has commenced an action against L.W. WILLIAMS to determine adverse claims and clouds upon title to 985 acres in the Fifth township.
Hannah SULIVAN has applied for letters of administration upon the estate of Jeremiah SULLIVAN, who died at San Mateo on December 5, 1913. The estate consists of real property consisting of town lots and San Mateo and a parcel of land in the town of Mayfield. The personal property is worth $100. The value of the estate is unknown to the petitioner. However, it will exceed in value the sum of $10,000. The heirs at law are the petitioner, widow of the deceased, and the following children, all residing in San Mateo: Annie H. SULLIVAN, Mary E. MADDEN, Kate Z. KEATING, Lena N. McDERMOTT, Timothy P. SULIVAN and Daniel J. SULIVAN. (Sulivan/Sullivan as printed)
Abbie W. FULLERTON has applied for letters of guardianship upon the person and estate of Ernestine CLAXTON, a minor, who, being over the age of 14 years, and being competent to select her guardian, nominated the petitioner to be her guardian. There is no estate. Grace M. CLAXTON is the present guardian and Mrs. FULLERTON wishes to displace her. The minor is 17 years old. The parties reside at San Mateo.
Otis M. CARRINGTON has applied for letters of administration upon the estate of Walter R. NOBS(?), who died in South America on September 1, 1913. The estate consists of cash in the San Mateo County Savings Bank, amounting to $892.65 and the sum of $65.28 on deposit in the First National Bank of Redwood City.
Pietro MOLINARI has applied for letters of administration upon the estate of Domenico CANEPA, who died at Colma on February 1, 1914. The estate consists of money in the bank, the amount of which is unknown to petitioner, and an interest in a vegetable garden at Colma. The entire value of the estate does not exceed the sum of $1500. The heirs at law are a brother and two sisters living in Italy.
The following builders’ contracts were filed in the office of the county recorder during the week:
C.C. MOOREHOUSE agrees to do the artificial stone work for the C. Frederick KOHL new residence at Easton for $9750.
Fred J. MAUER agrees to erect for the Warranty Investment Co. in 90 days, a five-room bungalow at “Blossom Heath Manor,” Beresford, for $2550.
The Van Sant-Houghton Company agrees to complete the interior wood finishing “trim” in the conservatory and bed rooms of the Geo. A. POPE residence at Burlingame by March 21, 1914, for $2047.
A.J. GREEN, one of Daly City’s most popular sheet metal workers, is engaged at present on the Kohler mansion at Easton.
Richard HARRIS who has been confined to his home at 147 Santa Ana avenue for the past two weeks from a capital operation, is slowly improving and hopes soon to be around.
Mrs. Robert R. HOWARD presented her husband with the finest valentine in Daly City on the 14th inst. – a splendid, health, baby boy. Papa HOWARD permits passenger to ride free on his car, he is so joyful, and Grandpa S.E. SANDERS just owns the earth, that’s all.
Frank R. SAMPSON, who owns a beautiful cottage home on Santa Ana avenue and a resident of Daly City since the town was first started after the great fire in San Francisco, having resigned his position with the American Type Foundry after a continual service of twenty-two years, left Thursday morning for Dinuba, California, where he will probably locate. Daly City is losing one of her very best citizens and Dinuba will be indeed fortunate if he locates there.

“Papa John” Biggio’s 68th Birthday
On Thursday of last week the BIGGIO home at Biggio Park was the happy scene of a most complete surprise, occasioned by the birthday of John BIGGIO, Sr.
The BIGGIOs have a large rock and brick crushing contract at the San Francisco city hall and the men folks were busy in the city, so the party was arranged by “Papa John’s” Daughter-in-law, Mrs. Enrico BIGGIO and their charming daughters, Charlotta and Erminia.
Owing to the probable lateness that the men would return home, a ruse was made in which a telephone message was sent saying that a man was there who wished to buy or lease the Biggio Park. This worked splendidly, so, of course there was no hitch in the arrangements.
So overjoyed at the surprise was “Papa John” that he never thought of the prospective buyer until all were seated at the table that was laden with the most delicious Italian delicacies, including of course, raviolis, abalone, mussels, crab salad, chicken, etc., and then he inquired. Jim DOWNEY had been acquainted with the ruse and at once proceeded to offer a dollar for the property that worth several thousand. This caused a great laugh of course and no one joined in more heartily that the grand man in whose honor the dinner was given.
Following the sumptuous repast, there was music and dancing until the midnight hour and every minute of the time was joy supreme.
