Dr. Harrison was summoned and  the injured lady walked up to the  hospital where the broken bone was  set, after which Mrs. Eggert returned to her home. Though extremely  painful the accident is not serious  and it is only a matter of time and  careful attention till lhe lady will be  up and about again.  i Just..in passing it might be well  to mention that all the sidewalks  are not cleaned yet.

A. R Installation.  Coming Dance.  Tbe dance to be given jointly by  the A. 0. U. W. and the A. B. will  be held in the Atlin club house, on  Friday, April the 19th.  Tbe committee issues a cordial  invitation to all to be present as they  may not be able to invite tliein individually.  The officers of the Arctic Brotherhood were installed- last Tuesday  night. Routine business was disposed of and Mr. Frank Gigot, of  the Bank of Commerce, was given  an excellent-idea of how the chee-  chaco .made his arduous, trip over  the summit .in .the early days. He  stood the trip sufficiently well,to be  able to enjoy the fun afterwards.  When installation was in order  the guests of the Brotherhood were  admitted and enjoyed the privilege  of witnessing .that impressive ceremony. At the .conclusion of this  the floor was cleared .and music-  songs, cards andPdancing .were in  order. AH present enjoyed themselves aud it was well on' in the  morning before the merry party  broke up.  Atlin sent'.up a goodly contingent, quite a-.number of ladies making tbe trip. The Brotherhood  realize that' without' the fair sex it  is impossible to make such a gathering the success it ought to be; and  they extend their .thanks to those  who accepted the invitation and express the hope that all the ladies  will be present at their future social  gatherings.  The follcvvisg were installed:  Arctic Chief, J. Gibson; Vice"Arctic  Chief, - J. Dunham; Recorder, W.  E. Haddon; Keeper of Nuggets,  W. Morrison; Chaplain, G.

E- Brown, Dr, Harrison,  O. F. Conley. Visiting Committee;,  M. R. Jamieson, J. Haslett, Walter  Sweet.   ���  Make Haste Slowly.  J. M. Ruffner, manager of the  Pine Creek Power Company, will  not be leaving for the North till the  i8th of this month. Some,local  wit? started the rumor that Ruffner  was bringing in a bunch of Japs to  work on his property on Pine creek.  No amount of diligent enquiry  can elicit any confirmation of the  story, and the general belief is that  it is the result of a highly seasoned  imagination.  The rapid increase in the price of  real estate in the city of Vancouver  is making some of the wiser aud  cooler heads think. It is a dead  certainty that the lop nolch will be  reached very soon. No amount of  legitimate business or growth of the  city will stand for lhe frenzied leaps  in prices' now prevailing. Those  who have the interest of the place  at heart are quietly sounding notes  of caution. It is not in the permanent welfare of any community  that such practice should be indulg-  iu. A plea is being made by the  banks aud other financial institutions to discourage and discontine  these methods.  Mrs. J. H. Black  is  much better  and will visit Atlin shortly.

Annual Meeting of the Liberal  Conservative Association.  There was a good attendance at  the meeting of the Liberal-Conservative Association, held in the dining  room of the Pine Tree hotel, last  Saturday night. Mr. Jules Eggert  was in the chair. After some preliminary discussion the election of  officers was proceeded with, resulting as follows; President, S. H.  Plumbe; vice-president, John Dunham; Sec.-Treas., C. L, Culliu;,executive committee, H. Molyiiea'ux,  C. T. Baker, C. P. Hickman, C.  Gilmore and G. A. Ker.  On taking the chair Mr. Plumbe  made a capital little speech, refer-  ing to the recent decisive victory of  the party in British Columbia and  other provinces. He also pointed  out the glorious possibilities of the  party in federal matters. It will  uot be long before the conservatives  will sweep the Dominion from pea-  board to seaboard. After gracefully  complimenting and congratulating  Dr. Young on the promotion to the  cabinet, he concluded his remarks  by pledging himself to do all in  his power to further tire interests qf  the party.  . Mr. J. Dunham brought a resolution before the association asking  the government to establish an  assay office in Atlin. And, further,  that the government carry sufficient  funds on hand to purchase gold  from the miners and companies in  the district. It is believed that such  an office would be self-supporting,  and it would be of inestimable value  to miners aud prospectors in the  district, in determining the value of  their gold dust and making assays.  The resolution asks that a vault be  built in which might bestqred gold,  money, valuable papers, records,  etc. The way things are now a fire  would wipe out in half an hpur the  records of years.  The petition or resolution has  been circulated throughout the district to obtain the signatures of all  those who favor the idea.  After a short informal discussion  the meeting adjourned.  9&X  St. Maktin'm Oilmen or nunr.ANp.  Sunday  inornina; services tire rendered ut,  11 o'clock.    \Viii,G,K, llntliorn. Iny reader.

The Nesutlin District;  "Sandy" Brown, who visited At-  }in a short time ago from Nesutlin,  speaks very encouragingly qf that  district. He says that prospects of  poarse gold can be got ou many of  the creeks. The discoverers of  Iron Creek have claims pn three  'different-creeks, and do assessment  work on all.  The Livingstone Creek Hydraulic  Company, spent abput $10,900 last  year and have got within a few feet  of bed-rock with their f)llme. Their  dead work is about finished. They  handle the dirt very economically,  and, after paying expenses last year  cleaned up about $30,000.  The country is a hunters paradise.
