The damage inflicted by running on  Fiddle Reef is not as bad as anticipated. Capt. Hickey was in command at the time of the accideut.  Probably the largest deal on record is the sale of James J. Hill's  ore properties in northern Minnesota to the U. S. Steel Corporation,  for $400,000,000. "Jim" might  spend a few of his hard earned dollars building homes for old and  worn-out prospectors aud miners.  Mr. J. L. Banks, last Thursday,  met with/a very painful and serious  accident while working in the shaft  of the Yellow Jacket mine, -on Pine  creek, ;  He was standing on a stage about  45 feet from the surface, engaged in  hoisting sections of pipe which had  been used to pump out the mine.  In some way either the sling slipped  or a joint worked loose aud a section about r5 feet long dropped  striking the unfortunate gentleman  on the left breast, pinning .him to  the wall. 'He saw it coming but  could not get out of the way, being  confined iu , too narrow, a space.,  After .being strack he released himself and 'started ier the" '.top,  nearly .reaching it, when assistance  came. Mr, Banks showed the greatest fortitude and .pluck throughout,  the whole sad affair. ' -  ���It was thought necessary by Dr.  Young to liave the injured man conveyed to the . Atliu hospital in a;  chair, the roads, being too rough .to  use a vehicle of any kind. Willing, hands were; immediately offered  and,after a long and tedious jour:  ney the patient was 'safely landed,  about 9 o'clock. It took over three  hours fcs accomplish the distance.  At the present time it is almost im-'  possible to state the extent of the  injuries. Up to going to press Mr;  Banks was resting as easily as  wounds of such a nature allow, alleviated by the kind .and willing  hands of the nurses and the skillful  care of Dr. Young.  Mr. Banks is a geutletnan of sterling qualities and has been associated with J. M. Ruffuer for some  time past in mining veutures in this  district. It is hoped he will soon  recover. Such accidents at first  sight sometimes scetn worse than  they really are.  Mr: Lumsden Honored.  Presented With a Nugget Chain by  Presbyterian Congregation.  At the close of the service in the  Presbyterian church on Sunday  evening Mr. J- A. Fraser addressed  a few appropriate .remarks- to the  congregation:  , Frien'ds and fellow worshippers::  The world has been likened" to a  stage, we mortals the -actors who  appear upon it for a time, act our  little part and pass from the scene,  I.have often thought that the simile  might very well be applied to Atlin  and to this congregation. Although  our existence as a congregation extends' over but a few years we. have  witnessed many changes. From  ���time to time we. have Lad occasion  to say good-bye  to willing  workers  Thomas, Hiuehcliffe, oue of the  pioneers of the Atlin camp, died  near Whitehorse, last Thursday..  We are not in possession of particulars yet.  Wonderfully rich deposits of sapphires have been discovered on the  Judith river in Montana, 75 miles  from Helana.  A giant nugget valued at $15,000,.  has been taken from the. Big Bonanza mine at Cobalt, Ont.  Two earthquake shocks visited;  Portland, Ore., .recently, destroying  a considerable amount of property  besides scaring the inhabitants.  J. Clarke, of the Half-Way house,  left for a trip to the coast cities.. He  returns'in March, to start -work, on���  his Boulder creek properties. Mr.  E. Pollock will have charge during  "Jim's" absence.  Don't forget that subscriptions to  The Claim are always in order.  who for a period sojourned amongst  us and helped . us in various ways  until lured or compelled by other  scenes or circumstances .they have  left 11s, -.much to our regret. Tonight we as a congregation ��� have  foregathered, .perhaps -for. the last  time for a long period, with a willing worker who has been'actively  associated with us practically, since  organization. Before another sab-:  b'ath comes round Mr.- Lumsden will  in all probability have left Atlin.  He has been a willing worker, giving us of his means, his time and  his talents. Air. Lumsden has been  an office bearer since organization,  and has cheerfully rendered efficient  service. It would be unworthy of us  to allow him fo leave the district  without some little token of appreciation and it was therefore decided  to present him with a short address  and a souvenir which he might car-  rj' with him as a memento of his  sojourn here and I was accorded the  honor of making the presentation,  and now if you will bear with me a  little longer I will ask Mr. Lumsden  to come forward and receive them:  To James Drysdale Lumsden, Atlin,  B. C,  Dear Sir,���It is with feelings of  profound regret that your friends in  the Atliu district, and particularly  the members and adherents of St.  Andrew's Presbyterian church, contemplate .your early departure from  their midst and the consequent severance of the fraternal ties and plea-,  sant relations which were born of  mutual intercourse and association  and which were rendered ever  stronger by the passing years, and  they would fain persuade you to  remain.  As,  however, .you have decided'  to  leave the "camp" we desire to '  give some .expression,   inadequate  though ;it may be,  to the  high  es- '  timatiou in which you are held by  the whole community, and more especially by the "session," board of  management and Sunday School of  said    St.    Andrew's   'Presbyterian  church, from whom aud  on whose  behalf I have the honor to preset*;  (continued on page 4-J A'JLIN,   B.

Useful and Ornaitietital Goods  SUNDAY WORK IN MINES.  The-question of Sunday* work-in  ' the  mines  is   now   to  the front in.  Western Australia.    Some companies have adopted  the short-sighted  polic}- . of   attempting- to   increase-  their. production. by working' seven,  days instead.of' the customary sik.  We say short-sighted policy because  aside   from ' religious- soruples and  sentimental grounds it has-been the  experience of the world at large that  the   workman   requires  something,  more than one free-day out of.seven,  to obtain   the necessary relaxation.  The additional time is provided in,  occasional holidays..    Aw  attempt  to depart from  this  custom,, which  has been established,by the-workers-  of the world, will  lose more than it  will gain..   So -far> as- any legislation  is  required, it is aisound'i principle  to> restrict   Sunday,   work  to  that  which is strictly necessary.. Even in  smelting.- plants,. where- the   work  must go ou  continuously,  the men  will lay off the number of days- in  the year that the demands of nature  require.���Engineering and Mining  Journal.  We full endorse the sentiments of  the above article..     No- self respect*  ing minef or company of individual  miners in this camp works on-Sunday.     If au   individual miner, who  as'a class.are as short o��ready>mo��^  ey as any we  know of,' can  stand  the loss of a few hours of labor,..why  does   it- not: apply   to- companies?  They are usually backed with sufficient  funds.     Certainly, if a company has uot ample  capital,  working a few more-- hours-a. week will  not save it from bankruptcy..  That  there are exceptions all will admit.  In these cases,..wb.ere.-a concern. has  t�� be  kept  running.- continuously,  could  it  not be arrangedito .allow  the men who work Sunday to have  one of the. week days, as-a day of  rest.

This started  the evening with a swing that- was  kept  up' tili  the . end���till the last  note  of God  Save The King  was  finished.
