  • Notes 
    • HUNT - Thomas Hunt, proprietor of the Queen's hotel corner of Bay and Stuart streets, died suddenly this morning about 4: 45. He was taken ill recently with la grippe, and it left him with a touch of pneumonia. Although far from well, deceased was out on Wednesday and last evening went downstairs into the office for a short time. During the night he became restless and sat on the edge of the bed. On being advised to lie down he did so, and died as soon as his body touched the bed. Deceased heart was weak and this was believed to be the principal cause of death. Deceased did not think himself ill enough to require medical aid and no doctor was in attendance. Deceased was 47 years of age, and was born in Haysville. He lived at Elmira for eighteen years and afterwards resided at Hespeler, coming from that place to Hamilton a little over a year ago to take over the Queen's hotel. He leaves a widow, one son and one daughter. He was a member of the C.M.B.A. branch at Berlin and the Select Knight's of Canada lodge at Preston. Mass will be said at St. Mary's cathedral on Monday morning, and the interment will take place at Hespeler the following morning, the casket and mourners leaving here on the 7 a.m. train.
