Died -- BULLENE -- in Salinas, April 14, 1892, Alfred BULLENE, a native of New York, aged 67 years, 7 days. [Deceased was born in Hannibal, Oswego county, New York in 1825. He came with his parents to Kenosha, Wisconsin, while a mere lad. Arriving at manhood, he located in business at Richmond, Illinois, where he was married to Miss Mittey [3rd letter iffy] STOREY, of Walworth county, Wisconsin. After living many years at Richmond he removed to Sharon, Wisconsin, near the former home of his wife, where he remained until his removal to California in 1872, settling in Salinas. His marriage was blessed with 3 sons & 2 daughters. His wife died in Sharon, 1 year before he came to California, and both of his daughters died in Salinas, Mrs. Charles L. WESTLAKE dying not long before her father. Mr. BULLENE had been an invalid for years, and often remarked to his family during the past year that the end of his pilgrimage could not be far off. He was an honored member of the Methodist church, and died in the fullest assurance of a blissful immortality.]
[Death of Alfred BULLENE -- In the death of Alfred BULLENE Salinas loses one of its oldest citizens, he having been a resident of this place for nearly 20 years, and having been one of our best known and respected citizens. He followed his trade here successfully up to 3 years ago when failing health compelled him to relinquish it. He was a brother-in-law of the late Hon. W.H. SEARS, who at the time of his death was collector of internal revenue at San Francisco and of Judge CUTTER, an attorney who died some years ago in Salinas. The funeral took place last Saturday afternoon from the Gabilan street M.E. church, of which deceased had long been a member, the services being conducted by Rev. C.G. MILNES, and the remains were followed to their last resting place in Odd Fellows’ cemetery by a large concourse of friends and acquaintances of deceased.]
At the county hospital Tuesday an intricate surgical operation for the removal of an ovarian tumor was performed by Doctors ARCHER, STAFFORD, PARKER and BRUMWLL upon Mrs. DAVIDSON. The operation was considered the only possible chance to preserve life. The unfortunate woman never recovered from the shock, but died yesterday morning.
From last Saturday’s Monterey ‘Cypress’ -- J.A. MONTGOMERY, father of Mrs. W.W. RAMSAY and Mrs. D.K. FRASIER of this place [Monterey] and Mrs. YOUNG of Santa Cruz, died at his residence at Oak Grove (in this city [Monterey]) Sunday, and was buried from Presbyterian church Monday, Rev. George McCORMICK, an old friend of the deceased, officiating. Deceased was an ex-soldier, having served in the Union army, where he received a wound which made him an invalid for the balance of his life. He had been a resident of this county several years and was highly respected and well liked by all who knew him.
Judge DORN granted an order Monday committing F.H. RAY for contempt of court for neglecting to pay alimony heretofore ordered by the court to his wife whom he has deserted. The case presents some nice legal points, the attorneys for RAY contending that there is no law to compel a man to support his wife until after she has commenced action for divorce. As she cannot commence such action on the ground of desertion until after the lapse of a year, and after the commencement of the action has to allege that her husband has contributed nothing for her support in that time, the situation seems to present an exigency calculated to make a woman’s righter howl.

**Tug of War Contest -- Last Saturday evening at the pavilion, the contest between the Salinas butchers and the Gonzales team took place, with result of victory to the Gonzales team in 7 minutes and 40 seconds. It was a straight victory for the Gonzalites, the Salinas boys never gaining any rope from their opponents. C.E. NOUGUES, Esq., was chosen as referee. Williams SARLES acted as judge for the Gonzales team and Henry FORSTON was its captain. Tom JOY was the judge for the butchers and W.T. DUNCAN captain. The Gonzales team was composed of the following members: W. BROCKMAN (anchor), Meliton ALVISO, Jno. HARGENS, Wm. WHITCHER, Tom NELSON, James QUIRK, James I. TAYLOR, Joe FROLLI, Frank KIDD, Jack PLATZ. The butchers’ team was made up as follows: Ed. LITTLEFIELD (anchor), F.A. ABBOTT, Frank HOLLAND, Gus WEBBER, Ed. STRUVE, F. TRIER, James HOLM, John WHITE, Frank MACHADO.
The attendance was not up to former contests, and showed that interest in these matters is on the wane here as it has been at every place where it has been introduced. The Salinas band enlivened the occasion with some of its choice music, and after the contest the floor was cleared for dancing, which continued until late into the night. The inevitable result was a little more conspicuous on this than on a former occasion -- the victors celebrated their conquest and the defeated drowned their sorrows, and as there had to be victors and vanquished in the nature of things, the spirituous influences were a sequence of the contest.
**Elegant Private Residence -- The finest private residence of Salinas is now in process of construction for Don Pedro ZABALA on the corner of Pajaro and San Luis streets. The brick foundation is now laid for the 8-foot basement story, in readiness for the superstructure. The building will be 2 stories above the basement with an 8-foot attic, Queen Anne style, with a corner tower. The building will square about 60 feet each way. The lower floor is so arranged that the front and back parlors, reception hall and sitting room can be thrown into 1 large, magnificent room for festive occasions. There are 8 large chambers in the upper story and 1 bedroom on the first floor. The plans for the front elevation facing Pajaro street show a beautiful structure. The work is under the superintendence of B.S. WILCOXEN.

**Nearly a Fire -- Last Friday afternoon the mill of the Central Milling company had a close call for destruction from fire. As VANDERHURST, SANBORN Co.’s men were returning from pasture, where they had gone to bring up some horses, they discovered smoke issuing from the ventilator on the roof of the mill. One of them notified the mill hands and the other hurried up town to give the alarm. The fire was quickly extinguished by the facilities kept at the mill. But for the timely discovery, the fire would have soon got into the roof and elevators and distributed itself throughout the whole building, making it impossible to save it. The fire is supposed to have caught from a spark from the smokestack.
