TO RETURN FROM
SCOTLAND VISIT j
Rev. C. K. Nicoll who, after two <
years as pastor of the Whitehorse .
Presbyterian church, leaving that |
place in May on a visit to his par- ?
onts and old home in Scotland, is now
on the way back and will pass through
Juneau on the Princess Sophia next |
When Rev. Nicoll left Whitehorse
in May it was not his intention to re
turn, although he contemplated com
ing back to Canada after a short visit
to his old home. His decision to
come back is, therefore but another 1
instance of the lure of the North.
The first Information of liis having re
turend to Canada came in a wire from
Rev. Nicoll to Mr. McLennan of
Whitehorse in the form of an inquiry
as to whether or not the Presbyterian
pulpit there was still vacant and ex
pressing a willingness, if acceptible
to the congregation, to return.
The Presbyterians were delighted
at the prospect of having the'.r former
popular pastor back and an urgent
night letter to that effect was immed
iately dispatched. An answer received
from Toronto said he will sail from
Vancouver for the North September
