**Death of a Good Man -- William S. HUNT, native of New Hampshire, aged 49, a well known citizen of the county, died at Jolon last Sunday, of consumption. His remains were brought to Salinas Monday and interred from MULLER’s undertaking parlors by his comrades of J.B. STEEDMAN’s post, of which he was a member. He enlisted at the breaking out of the civil war in the Second Kansas infantry and again at the end of 3 years’ service in the Ninth Kansas cavalry, coming out as a sergeant at the end of the war. In 1879 he was married to Miss Mary GRIMES in Kansas and shortly after removed to California, settling in Salinas. After the passage of the arrears-of-pension act, he received $1,800 back pension and bought a farm on the Carneros. Two or three years ago he sold his Carneros farm and returned to Salinas where he engaged in merchandising. Failing health compelled him to relinquish business, and he has spent the past year in San Antonio valley, in the hope that the climate there would restore him to health; but the seeds of the disease, acquired in the service of his country, had made too great progress to be relieved only by death. He was a man of culture and superior intelligence. He leaves a widow and son 8 years old. He was a member in good standing of the A.O.U.W., and his widow is the beneficiary in his policy, entitling her to $2,000. Mr. HUNT was a pensioner of the general government, and his widow has made application through U.S. Circuit Court commissioner PARKER to be entered on the pension rolls as a veteran’s widow, which will entitle her to $8 a month and $2 a month for her son.
