Ernest Grote, proprietor of Grote’s hotel on Frost street at Red Bank, died on Monday afternoon. His death was due to stomach trouble and other complications. He had been complaining for some time and for the past five weeks he had been confined to his bed. He was 39 years old.

Mr. Grote was a native of Germany, but he had lived in this country the greater part of his life. He came to Red Bank about fourteen years ago to work for Oscar Hesse as a confectioner. Afterward he tended bar for Jacob Degenring, but about eleven years ago he started in the hotel business in the McMahon building, where Fred Gowdy’s hotel is now located. Afterward he bought the Cothren building and moved his hotel business there.

Ten years ago Mr. Grote married Annie Kuhl, daughter of G. Philip Kuhl of Red Bank. She and one son, Ernest, aged eight years, survive him. He had no other relatives in this country.

Mr. Grote belonged to the Red Men’s and Knights of Pythias lodges, the New Era association, the Eintracht society, the Relief fire company and the Monmouth boat club. His funeral will be held to-morrow at two o’clock at the house and at half-past two o’clock at the Episcopal church. The body will be buried at Fair View cemetery. The bearers will be from the Red Men and Knights of Pythias lodges and the New Era association.
