A good beginning of the season was made at Fyfe's station at Kaikoras last week by the capture of a whale, which is likely to turn out nine tons. A man of the name of Allwright belonging to Mr. Fitzherbert's station met with an unfortunate accident which from absence of medical aid terminated fatally. The deceased was a steady active man, and one of the best headsmen engaged in shore fisheries.

Atchison - On 1st January, 1902, at his residence, Tinakori-road, Frederick Atchison, aged 73 years. Funeral, 3 p.m., To-morrow (Friday). Friends invited.
Mr. Frederick Atchison, who from 1862 to 1891 was an Inspector of Police — first for the Wellington and afterwards for the West Coast districts — died at his residence in Tinakori-road yesterday morning at the age of 73 years. He had suffered a severe illness of three months' duration, and the event was not wholly unexpected. Mr. Atchison was identified with Wellington in its early days. Arriving here in 1898? (sic), he went first to Canterbury, but soon returned and for many years he conducted a general store on what was known in those days as "the beach," Thorndon-quay. The building was only recently demolished. After his appointment as Inspector of Police he remained in Wellington until 1880, when he went to reside in Nelson to supervise its West Coast district. He retired in April, 1891, and has since lived quietly in Wellington. He leaves a widow, a son (Mr. F. Atchison, of the Survey Department) and a married daughter.
