Killed By a Cable Car
Death of a Well-known Railroad
Mr. G.W. Hunt, who has been in the city for several days, left for his home in Walla Walla last evening.
Mr. M.C. Shaw, who was killed by a Geary street cable car in San Franscisco a few days since, was in the employ of Mr. Hunt for four years as locating engineer, and located all the lines of the Hunt system of railroads, except about 40 miles.
He was one of the best locating engineers in the country, and a very bright, genial fellows, highly esteemed by all who knew him.
Mr. Hunt telegraph to Engineer W.H. Kennedy, in San Franscisco, to have the remains of Mr. Shaw embalmed, enclosed in a nice casket, and forwarded to Walla Walla at his expense, where they will be buried.
Mr. Shaw has many friends at Walla Walla, who will appreciate this act of thoughtfulness on the part of Mr. Hunt for one of his old employes. – Oregonian.
