in the Siberia, credits tho informa

coast papers .before he loft. It was
his litst impulse to cable the news
here, but, on second thought, he
to.ok it for granted that the Associ-
Ued Press would have flashed it
here to the newspapers. Theodore
Richards feels inclined to doubt
he correctness of the telegraphed
newspaper item from Baltimote.

"that no one notified us."

BALTIMORK, October '2G.
Bev. Dr. lliram Binidiam, the
noted Congregational tnissicnary,
who underwent a surgicsl operation
at John llonkin s Hospital last
week, died here yesterday. Dr.
Bingham was born in Honolulu in
1831, to which place his parents
had gone from America in 1820 as
pioneer missionaries. In 185G he
went to the Gilbert islands as
missionary. In 18o( he went to
the Gilbert islands as a missionary
Buried away on the Gilbert is
lands for a third of a century,
whore the eqnutor crosses near the
ISOth meridian of longitude and
the seafaring man changes his day
in crossing, Bev.'IIiram Bingham,
missionary, lexicographer, master
mariner and philologist, in June
made his appearance amid civilized
surroundings in San Francisco,
coming by way of Honolulu.
Bev. Mr. Bingham went to the
islands in 1S57 and found the na
tives in a very savage stale. They
wore hardly any clothing, and
were hostile to whites. Owing to the
influences which have been brought
to bear the natives, according to
the missionary, are now civilized
Mr. Bingham's great work was the
translation of the Bible into the
Gilbortian language, and he has
not only been successful in that
herculean task but he has adapted
215 hymns to tho language, which
the natives delight in singing,
His dictionary of the Gilbert is
lands language contains 12,000
Mr. Bingham commanded the
missionary packet Morning Star on
her famous voyage from Boston to
Honolulu in 1807, which occupied
120 days, and his father, Hiram
Bingham, was one of the fu st seven
missionaries who arrived at Bono
lulu in 1820.

October 21). T. Milner Harrison,
attorney, today languishing behind
'.he bars at the police station, hav
ing been placed there at ;:!!()
o'clock this morning for iifvestiga-
tioo. Love for a Hawaiian damsel
seems to be the reason for his getting
into trouble, and the Sheriff states
that serious charges will be pre
ferred against him.
From the statement of the police
the girl involved, a comely damsel
named Carrie Sponeer, it seems
that tho attorney ha been smitten
with the ( harms of the be uity for
some time past The gii lays that
lastiiight he and the rest of the
family, which consists of four
young girls and tlieir parents, saw
Hnrrison prowling about their cot
tage on the road in Kalihi lending
makai from the poi factory At a
limit midnight, thev saw Harrison
returned, lie banged on the door,
and, on being refused admittance,
he began to break it down. Tin
father of the girl went to the door,
but was told, so Carri savs, that
if ho came out he would get a huh
let placed in his anatomy
Paterfamilias retired in some dip
order, anil as Harrison continued
with hi-' work of breaking down
the door, the entire family flee
through a back door, seeking re
fusge in outhouses and bushes. In
the meantime, thev say, Harrison
gained entrance to the house, am
held the fort. He "brandished i
blackjack, and occastiomilly made
sure of bis strategical position by
playing a pocket ilashlight on tho
In the meantime the police had
been sent for, and two officers ar
rived. They wore informed that
Harrison was armed with gun,
bjackjaot and searchlight, and as
they could see him holding posses
sion of the camp in a belligerent
attitude, they sent for an entire
squad of qllicers. When 'the rein
forcements had arrived the house
was surrounded, and the ollicers
waited for a chance to tackle the
amorous and bellicose attorney.
Finally Harrison tired of standing'
guard, and went to the kitchen,
where he sat down to eat poi and
bread, flashing his searchlight out
in'tho yard from time to time. The
ollicers by excorcising care, how
ever, manage to creep upon him,
aid he was arrested and taken to
the station, where he is now being
hold for investigation.
No revolver was found on Har
rison and the gun which he is
known to havo had in his posses
sion formerly, is now in the hands
of the police, this being the the
weapon used by Strauss in his fa
mous ease. A cartrige was found
in the yard this morning, and the
police believe that Harrison must
have had a gun, hut hid it before
the arrival of tho ollicers.
Sheriff laukoa stated this morn
ing that ho had not as yet decided
what charge he would place against
Harrison, but that it would be the
most serious one, which the cir
cunistances would warrant. Tho
family, he said was very afraid of
Harrison, and if ho wero released
on bail, an attempt would bo mado
to place him under a bond to keep
tho peace. It is also probable that
an ollicer will bo stationed at tho
house, if Harrison gets out of
