DR. 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.

We wish to thoroughly impress on your mind
that the present stock cannot hold o it forever; that
if the Spanish-American War continues for any
length of time prices are bound to advance. Again,
freight rates will be high, as well as more or less
