BakerCullenThe notorious Cullen Baker, to use the language of the press, is no more. He came to his death at the hands of his brother-in-law, it is said, a short times since in the County of Lafayette in this State.

That he was a deperate character, there can be no doubt. That he richly deserved death, if the half that is told be true, is likewise undeniable. Like Ishmael of old this hand seemed to have been raised against every one, as was every hand against himself.

We give Gov. Clayton joy and hope that he will now rest easy, as this raw-head and bloody-bones.; The Weekly Press2/4/1869

December 9 the Rev. Father Bandini suffered a stroke of paralysis at Tontitown, Washington county, the Italian colony which he founded, and was removed to the City hospital at Fayetteville. Later, at the insistance of Bishop John B. Morris of Little Rock, the priest was brought to St. Vincent's infirmary. A second stroke of paralysis caused his death.

The Rev. Dr. Titus Bandini, S.T.D., J.N.D., who teaches dogmatic theology at the Polish seminary at Orchard Lake, Mich., is a nephew and the only surviving relative. He was called to Little Rock when his uncle's condition became serious and was preparing to return when the fatal stroke occurred.

Founds Immigrant Aid Society.

The Rev. Father Bandini was born at Forli, Italy, and became a priest in early life. He came to the United States about 30 years ago. Seeing the needs of his people, who were coming to the United States in large numbers, he founded St. Raphael's Society in New York city to aid the immigrants materially and spiritually.

His work in this connection attracted the attention of Austin Coribin, a New York millionaire, who owned a large tract of land in southeast Arkansas. The priest was urged to establish a colony in this section.

He first established a colony of Italians at Sunny Side, Chicot county. The death of Mr. Coribin and the effect of the climatic conditions upon his health caused the Rev. Father Bandini to move some of the colonists at Tontitown.

Gets Medal From Italy

The Italian government presented him with a gold medal in rcognition of his work. The Medal was presented at the Universal Exhibition at Turin, Italy. Anthony Caminetti, general commissioner of the Immigration Bureau of the United States conferred his appreciation and thanks for the work of the priest.

Plans formulated by the Rev. Father Bandini before his illness will be used by the immigration societies in the United States in caring for the many immigrants expected to come to this country at the close of the European war.
