Etymology of "Teleport"

The current etymology of Teleport that you have traces it to the 1940s. However, there is an occurrence of the word (same meaning) in an 1878 Hawaiian newspaper: The Hawaiian gazette. [volume] (Honolulu [Oahu, Hawaii]) 1865-1918, October 23, 1878, Image 4 « Chronicling America « Library of Congress
It references the original story from a Bombay paper, which I haven’t been able to find.

That’s a noun. The entry is for a verb.
