Employees of the "Advertiser" Job Department
Present Mr. Atwell FLEMING/FLEMMING with a Handsome Masonic Ring on the Occasion of his Leaving the Establishment.
The employees of the "Advertiser" job printing department assembled in the composing room last evening and then requested the presence of Mr. Atwell FLEMING/FLEMMING from the office. Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING was very much surprised to see the gathering and before he had quite made up his mind whether or not a strike was in progress Mr. Wm. W. WRIGHT proceeded to read the following address, which explains itself.
"To Atwell FLEMING/FLEMMING, Esq., Superintendent "Advertiser" Job Department:
"Dear Sir, -- We, the employees of the above department, on this the eve of your retirement from amongst us, feel that we cannot allow you to depart without a slight expression of our esteem and affection for you, and thanking you for your unvarying kindness and sympathy which for the past nineteen years you have so cordially extended to us. We respectfully ask you to accept this ring merely as a symbol of our unity, not only in the past, but also in the future; for, though separated from us, we shall ever remember you as a fellow-worker, not ashamed of that noble profession, the 'Art Preservative of all Arts,' for the elevating of which you have always striven with unvarying zeal.
"Kindly tendering you best wishes for your future prosperity and success, and hoping that you and Mrs. FLEMING/FLEMMING may both be spared a long, peaceful and happy life, we remain."
This address was signed by Mr. Lewis CLARK, Wm. W. WRIGHT and their fellow employees in the job department.
When the portion of the address, "we respectfully ask you to accept this ring," was read, Mr. Lewis CLARK stepped forward and placed on Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING's finger a beautiful masonic ring. The square and compass were set with small diamonds which, standing out in relief against the dark surface of the ring had a very pretty effect.
Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING was very much moved as he proceeded to reply, saying that he had not realized until that moment how hard it would be to say good-bye. It was true, as their very kind words stated, that he had been in the position of superintendent of the department for nineteen years, and as a matter of fact, he had always, as far as lay in his power, done his best as between the office and men. (Hear, hear.) He had never tried to give one or the other advantage, and had endeavored to do what he considered right. He had to thank them cordially for their very kind expression of esteem, and he would cherish their beautiful gift as long as he lived; and after that he hoped to hand it over to one of his boys who would probably wear it after him, and he could tell him that that was what the boys of the "Advertiser" job department thought of his father. Again he thanked them.
On the under surface of the ring is the following inscription: "Atwell Fleming. From job hands, "Advertiser" office. London, February 28, '95."
As the foregoing indicates, Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING has received an attractive offer to engage in business in Toronto, and he has accordingly resigned the position which he has occupied with credit to himself and satisfaction to the "Advertiser" directorate, and the many thousands with whom he has come in contact during the nineteen years that he has held it. It is perhaps superfluous for us to say that Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING takes his departure with the best wishes for his future success, not only of the department of which he has been the head, but of every department in the "Advertiser" establishment. While parting with them with regret, his many Friends in business and fraternal society circles will be delighted to hear of his brilliant prospects, while satisfied that his character and ability will enable him to take full advantage of them.
Mr. FLEMING/FLEMMING went to Toronto today.
