    OBITUARY.

    Jose Dolores Narvaez.

    SAN JOSE, June 25. - Jose' Dolores Narvaez, said to have been the oldest native son of California, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. L. Cantana, in this city yesterday, aged 94 years.  He was one of the founders of the Pueblo San Jose, and as such accumulated a large fortune, trading merchandise to the Indians for lands in the early days.  He was robbed of practically all of his savings by trusting those he believed his friends.  Before banks were established in San Jose, Narvaez cached large sums.  When his eyesight failed he told of his buried treasure, believing others would recover it and place it in the banks.  In this way he lost all and died practically penniless.  His reality (sic) holdings in the early days ran into the thousands of acres, his largest holding being the San Juan Batisto (sic) Rancho.  His life was typical of the prodigality of the early Spanish settlers of California.
