More than 1,000 noncombatants including many women and children, were killed today in an upri-ing near Tabriz, which was led by Royalists. The revo lutionary commission has made an ap-1-v.il to hasten the revolutionary forces to Tabriz, although it is reported that the Rovalists have since been routed. The University of Missouri has at tracted a number of interesting and widely known men to Columbia more, perhaps, than any other town in the state has known. Old residents of Co lumbia can talk for hours of college presidents, odd professors, geniu-e-. Al.-o they can tell of state-men, poli ticians, writers, and painters. One of those men Columbia persons tell about was General George C. ISingham, Ad jutant General of the State, professor of painting and sirt. corre-pondetit for some ot the metropolitan turners and painter. Mr. Bingham's work as a painter i of special interest to Columbians be-cau-e alnio-t all of it wa- done in Co lumbia. Very few of hi- picture- were painted outside of hi- old -tttdio on Rroadway. The mo-t noted of the-e "Order Number Eleven." or "Martial Law.'' is still owned in the original by (Jorge Itinuham Rollin-. It hang- on :t wall of hi- home in Columbia. Why it Was Painted. '"Order Number Eleven" got its name ft om ait order i tied by General Thom as Ewing of Ohio during the Civil war. an order tin-urpa ed in cruelty by any issued in the era of martial law. Ew ing wa- a Union General and he order ed everv man. woman and child to i vacate Jack-on. Cass, Hates and Ver I lion counties within a period of fifteen jdays. At the end of that time the home- were to be burned oer the heads of any who remained and any who re-i-tcd were to be -hot. Forag ing parties had lett tew lior-es in tne , di-trict and invalid women were forced j to walk, mile- and mile-, often carry ing infant babies in their arms. Sometime- a few of the treasured posses , -ions were loaded on the back of a 'cow or an ok and were carried to some t j-ett lenient out-ide. Some families did not believe it pos- sible that such a terrible order would be enforced and remained at their homes over the stated time. Itingham's picture deals with Kwing's forces com ing to one of these homes. The sky is clouded with smoke from burning homes and the soldiers are preparing to apply the torch to another. The occupants of the hoit-e are surrounding the officers in charge and are pleading and imploring for mercy. One matt who ha- resisted the -oldiers probably i- lying on the around dying from a gunshot wound ami a woman has thrown herself aero his body. An old man with streaming beard is arguing with the soldier-, one of whom has a -nioking pi-tol in his hand. Little children are crying. His Threat to Ewing. The hi-tory of the picture i- inter-e-ting. General Piii"hani was well ac quainted with General Ewing and 'heard that Ewing intended to is,ue the i order. ISinhant wa- a -launch Union 1 man but the cruelty of the order dunib- fi'tiudcd him and he remonstrated with ! Ewing. lie told him that if the order ! was i ued he would make him infa 1 mous with brii-h and pen. Ewing laughed at him and soon issued the , otder. Several years later Ewing had 'gone into politics and was running on ! the Republican ticket for Governor of Ohio. Then, a- now. the Governor of Ohio wa- available material for the J Pre-idency and Ewing had announced hi- intention of appealing as a candi ' date for that office at the next elec tion. I'ingham hail a large number of copies of hi- picture. "Order Number iEleen." made and -eattercd them over I Ohio with a full account of the order 'and it- working-. At the election Ew ing was defeated. Ewing. himself, often said that Uing I ham's picture defeated hint for the 'Pre-idency. A few years later Ewing was killed in New York City by a 1 -treet car. Itingham's pictures grow in interest land value as they become older. Their chief value is not so much in their fini-h. or color, or technique, or bru-h work, although the quality of all these is good. They are chiefly valuable, it is said. lecause they take the life of their time along the Mississippi Val ley and crystali7e it so it is preserved for all time. His pictures of the lioat men on the Missouri River, for in stance, are reliable and intere-ting sources for a study of the life, dress, habits, and even amusements of that type of men which has entirely passed away. Copies of two of these pictures. "The Jolly Flathoatman" and "In a Quandary." may 1h seen in the Colum bia club. They are owned by Edward Rollins. Bingham also published a series of pictures dealing with the elections of his day. The -cries includes '"Canvassing for a Vote." "Stump-Speaking," "The Election" and the "Result of the Elec tion," copies of all except the last of the-c may be seen in the Columbia club where Edward Rollins has placed them. Bingham's painting embraced a wide vaiiety of types. Besides the pictures mentioned he painted a view of Pike's Peak. Another type of picture was one of '"The Migration of Daniel Boone." He even painted one picture of a study in nude, called "The Palm Leaf Shade." Bingham was widely1 known as a writer. He contributed to the news papers of his day, dealing especially in di-cii ions of political questions of the time. Bingham was actively interested in politics at one time, and served a term as Adjutant General of the State. After that he was appointed Police Commis-ioner of Kansas City and his liff was threatened many times for the reforms which he instituted and the weeding out of saloons. A Fighter, Too. "Bingham was cast in a heroic mold." said Edward Rollins in speaking of his own remembrances of the great paint er: "never a man lived whom he fear ed." Mr. Rollin- told this story to illus trate his point: "One dav I was coming with Mr. ItiiiL'ham from Cciitralia to Columbia over the YVaba-h branch and the train jumped the track. All of the pas -eager- uathered around the train crew which was prying the wheels back in place and Bingham became much inler--ted. 'Here.' he -aid. "put a block un der there and pry her up anil you'll get !ier back all right : let me show you.' ""Ilere. men. i- a man who knows more about this than any of us.' said one of the workmen. 'He can pry her bjick alone. Give him a crow bar.' The workman laughed sarcastically at Bingham. Bingham was a small man. old and stooped. Without a moment's hesita tion he leaped at the Irishman and struck him with all hi- -trength in the mouth. The workman was too a-ton-i-hed to get mail and in a few moments he was laughing at what he regarded :t- a joke on him-elf." Itingham's ta-te- were simple. He preferred mii-h and milk to any food be hail ever tasted. He once said that he believed him-elf the wealthiest man in the world as lie had everything that he wanted, lie was born in Virginia in 1S11. His parent moved to Boon ville. Mo., when he wa- 4 years old. His early occupation wa- that of a cab inet maker, lie came to Columbia at the reqtie-t of James S. Rollins who engaged him to paint some portraits. He died while i-iting in Kansas City in 1ST1I. He was married three times. ROGERS The New Suits, Jackets, Skirts and Spring Dress Goods are just in.
