G. H. WETMORE A Well Known Hilo Resi dent Died on May 13. Came Around the Horn In 1S4-9. Prominent in Church and Edu cational Work. Dr. Charles H. Wetmore, one of the early missionaries to arrive in the Ha waiian Islands, died in Hilo, Hawaii, on Friday, May 13th, after nearly half a century of faithful work. He was well known throughout the Islands and was prominent in church and edu cational work during his whole life. The Tribune says of him, in part: Dr. Charles H. Wetmore was born in Lebanon, New London County, Conn., February S, 1S20, and is of long lived as well as noted ancestry. His own father reached the age of 01 years, and several of his ancestors on both sides are recorded to have lived to ages vary ing from 77 to SS years. Dr. Wetmore with his wife, whose maiden name was Lucy S. Taylor, (of Pittsfield, Mass.), arrived in Honolulu the 11th of March, IS49, having made the. voyage around Cape Horn in 14G days. Dr. Wetmore came under the auspices of the American Board, as missionary physician and he was locat ed at Hilo where he arrived on the 18th of May, 1S49. He labored here for six years under the A. B. C. F. M. at a salary so small that it required the strickest economy in their mode of living. In 1S55 Dr. Wetmore severed his connection with the American Board. In 1863 the board relinquished their work and turned over the evangeliza tion of the Islands to the Island churches. Dr. Wetmore was one of those who opposed this plan. Upon the withdrawal of the Amer ican Board, Dr. Wetmore continued in practice upon his own account, and had charge of the American Hospital, where sailors from American ships and ether Americans in need were cared for. This hospital was the build ing where the Rev. Mr. Hill now lives. After the hospital was given up, the building was turned over to the church and became the parsonage. It was oc coupied by Mr. Thompson, the first pastor of the Foreign Church. WTith this church Dr. Wetmore was closely identified from the first and gave it great financial assistance and much personal work. He was made first Sunday school superintendent, a posi tion which he held until the day of his death. Dr. Wetmore was, until his death, trustee of the Lyman school, now the Hilo Boarding School for boys. Dr. Wetmore's family consisted of one son and three daughters. The son died, in early youth. The three daugh ters survive him. They are Mrs. Lewis of Oakland, Cal., Mrs. Henry Deacon of Pepeekeo, and Dr. Frances Wetmore, who received a thorough education abroad, and has been for several years her father's assistant in medical work; and has lately taken charge of it. Mrs. Wetmore died in 1S83. In the early days of sugar Dr. Wet more was engaged with D. H. Hitch cock and E. G. Hitchcock in the estab lishment and management of Papaikou plantation, which was turned over to the present owners in 18S3. Dr. Wet more was also interested in Kohala and other sugar plantations. In 1863, during the absence of Cap tain Worth, the American Consul at Hilo, Dr. Wetmore was appoointed act ing Vice-Consul, and occupied as Con sulate the office now owned by Consul Furneaux on Front street. There are now but three white men in Hilo who were here during the early years . of Dr. Wetmore's residence in this town. These are C. E. Rich ardson, D. H. Hitchcock and W. Rose. Punahou Teachers. Mrs. Lillian Turner, well known as one of the best teachers of Honolulu, and formerly in the corps of Professor Scott, has been engaged as a teacher for Punahou Preparatory School. The trustees are fortunate in securing Mrs. Turner, whose appointment was strengthenly recommended by Prof. F. A. Hosmer. Miss Ely, a most valued member of the Punahou Preparatory staff of teachers, will remain only to the end of the present term, much to the re gret of the school managers. Miss Ely reiurns again to her old position in the Phil Armour Normal Institute of Chi cago. The new man at Oahu College in place of J. L. Howard, who is studying medicine on the Coast, is Prof. Albert N. Campbell of Stockton Business Col lege. He will arrive next month. ITCHINGNESS OF THE SKIN AND ECZEMA.
