Tho lato Charles T. Dillingham
was born in Southborough, Mass.,
on Sept. 5th, 1803. He lived iu.
Worcester, Mass., and also in 'Det
roit, Mich., before he came here in
187G, with hia-newlymnrricd-wifc.
He then went into his brother's cm
ploy, and about three years' ngo went
into Mcssis. Castle & Cooke's ofllce.
He wax n member of the Odd
Fellows Society, Treasurer of the
Young Men's Christian Association,
Secretary of tho Reading Room and
Library Association, and an active
member of the Bethel Church, and
assisted iu its Sunday School woik.
From this it will be seen that his
life was spent in an active career of
usefulness, as a kind and loving hus
band and father, a useful citizen,
and bebt of all, a true Christian.
Ills death has cast quite a gloom
over the town, as he was universally
knowu and respected.
Tho funeral took place yesterday
afternoon. At 4 o'clock the service
at the Bethel commenced. It was
led both by the Revs. Mr. Damon
and Mr. Cruzan. The choir sang
some very touching hymns. Tho
funeral procession was the longest
known in Honolulu. All the leading
business houses were closed. At tho
grave, after tho Rev. Mr. Damon
had officiated, the Odd Fellows clos
ed round the grave and performed
tho funeral rites of their order.
The scene, at the close, of -tho
brethrou dropping in their pieces of
evergreen to denote their everlasting
remembrance, was symbolical and
touching. Then Mrs. Hanford and
Mrs. Peircc sang "Nearer my God
