BINFORD RETIRED BY THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF CENTRALIA. Appearing in the last week's edi tion of The Richmond Planet, was an article referring to the trouble of Dr, J. H. B nford with the Centrala Baptist Church. In rep.y t0 the sa d article we beg to stat2 that the Centralia Baptist Church has by no means cast aS'de her pas tor. Dr. Binford. Dr. Binford has led the Centralia Bapt. tr. church for nine years and for feibout three years he has been gr atly handicapped be cause of the losr of his sight. After e mtiuu ng t0 grow worse an at emp' was made in the year 192 7 to retire him on half salary, whicn was re used by him. Then after v struggle I'cr more than a year, w.th a constant clamoring from the younger part of the congrega ion for better service, the Chur h was forced to retire Dr. Binford on a ealary. Th s we must say. in r f cst'ng him aside. The Centralia Baptis" Church has a record of s'xty-one years wh- ii began in th year IS67.

The matter had not been reported to the Police Department, due, It is said to the plead ng with him of Nor man Chambers not to have him ar rested and promising to derray all the expenses of his illness. Death forced out.the facts. According to the statements of witnesses, a party of men were engaged In a game at 107 E. Coutts Street. AFTER ANOTHER MAN. Norman Chambers, who is alleged tto have been on the trail of some person he suspected with his wife, came in and got into the game. It was about 6 P. M.

Norman Cham bers told him he wouldn’t allow him to take the money and when he said he would take it, Chambers drew his revolver and fired. When he found out he had shot Oliver, he. became grief-stricken and pleaded w th h.in not to have him arrested, that h© did not intend to sheet him. BEGGED NOT TO BE ARRESTED. He fell on his knees at his side, and had visited the hospital regular ly to see about h s condition. He said he would pay all of his expen ses . Since the death o! Oliver, a’l efforts on the part of the police o locate Chambers have been futile. He is said to have resided next to Mt. Carmel Baptist church on Nor h F:rst Street.
