The Late Restauranteur Honored by the Bishop of the Russian Church.
The last tributes of respect were paid the memory of Christopher Cernogorcevich yesterday afternoon at the Russian Cathedral on Powell street. Hundreds of friends of the deceased assembled at the church, where the funeral services were conducted by Bishop Nicholas, an honor seldom shown in the Greek church in this City.
From the church a long procession of carriages followed the remains to the Odd Fellows; Cemetery, where the interment took place.
Christopher Cernogorcevich was well known in this City among the Austrian and Russian residents and the congregation of the Russian church. For a number of years he was proprietor of a liquor and restaurant business on Vallejo street. He was born in Baosich Bocche di Cottaro, Austria, nearly fifty-five years ago.
