FIENDISH    CRIME.
Denver, Colo., Feb. 25 In the twenty
• enturies of history of the Catholii-
church, members of iis priesthood here
declare there is no record to parallel
that of the killing of r'ather Leo
Heinrichs, while adminisi rating the
sacrament to Guiseppe Guaranaccio at
the altar of St. Elizabeth's church
yesterday mornii"".
Kneeling at the altar rail between
two women, Gui'.ranaccio pressed the
muzzle of a revolver against the body
of the priest after receiving from him
the consecrated wafer and shot the man
of God throuh the heart. Exclaiming "My God, My God," Fath.r Leo
fell i r na i.i fr nt of the alter and died
without uttering another word.   Witli
: a scream »f triumph, which communi-
cant  declare w.» the yell of as demon,
j the assassin sprang into the aisle and
waving the smoking gun dashed, to the
church door. F< r a moment, the hui -
dred or mere   people in   the    chur, h
I were d<'"edj then a woman   shrieked
andthecong et 'ii becam panic stricken,
Gua a iacc:o   wa    i vjrpowered only
aft?r a disparate fight.
This cr'me they say will stand out
as one of the most fearful in the criminal recor.is, and its rerpetralion may
r.s'.ilt in the canonization of Father
Leo as a martyr of the < hurch.
The murderer was an anarchchist of
the worst type.

EATON'S   AND SOME MORE.
Recent advices from Victoria inform
us that a young man named "Eaton'
has been appointed Provincial Organizti
for the Conservative Party in British
Columbia. Our advices would indicate,
the young man has, up to the present,
been employed i.i the office of thi
Attorney General, chiefly in the manipulation of the now notorious "Nata
Act" fathered by Bowser.
We are not told who is to pay th.
young man's salary from this on; noi
whether the axpenses of his variec
journeyings are to come out of th.
people's pocket through the medium oi
the "Public Chest, but we are told thai
his business is to gather the scattere.
remnants of the Conservative Parlj
from Alberni toHectorand from Lillot-t
to Michel! It will be a nice job -aim
we dtn't envy the young man in tht
least; buc what we were about to remark is this, that a man of thnt name
ought to be a good hand at gathering
"remnants", and making a display oi
"cheap Johns."
We are not informed if he be anj
relation toih^la;elamented "'iimothy"
of Toronto, but we venture the assertion
he will have quite as heavy a job on his
hands as our good-natured and geniu.
friend Charlie Warren has when loaded
down wiih mail-sacks containing
catalogues bearing that same name!
"Apropos of the abov.'" (to use a
favourite phrase of tho Golden Star)
the Editor of thut terrestial luminary,
in last weeks isue, devoted a column
and a half to reiterating the time worn
wail and arguments about "sending to
Eaton's." In the main we agree with
our contempory; but we are surprised
so gallant a youth as he is credited to
be, should vent all his wrath on the
ladies, li our humble opinion we have
some men in our midst equally to blame.
In fact, we have heard of a parson who
u.es the nickel.! and dimes collected on
a Sunday to »end to Eaton's for hi»
bootlaces and cornstarch on the Monday.
Whether ha buys his sermons also there
we have not heard, liut however this
may be, what we contend is, that if it
be wrong for tho 1-diej of our town to
import some two-and-a-half c«:n dry-
good* from Toronto, il is squally
umbusint-s like for some of our business
men to import tome two-and-a-half
cent Editors from Victoria.
There is just another point in the
"Star" Editorial to which we take exception. He says:- "In the firstplace
we arc earning our living here."   The
ii.ue.tijn occurs to us  "Is Jus  true"?
•f/j donoi deny that the Editor of the
S i,r is GETTING his iivnig-but that is
iiJi.e  different   Irom  EARNING  it.

Th« Uoiuiin adaptation of It war; the

he cited.the information given to tin
House in reply to questions,- that' 1.
certain number of Orientals Were employed at $1.60 to $1.90 pel day, and retailed tue previous statement that
Orientals ware receiving the wages ot
while men, which was apparently not
the case Irom tilese ngures. in the
Wnliingion colliery, according to his
advice there were 1,750 Orientals em-
p oyed as miner.-,. 11 wing to the attitude of ihe inin* owners, the miners
were prohibited irom uniting in their
own protection, and he claimed that it
was nee jssary .hat something should
be done, as serious accidents might be
occasioned any day owing to the employment of these incompetent men.
Hon. Mr. McBride said if  he  had
been decieved the inspectors were re-
0,'oiisitla. anu personally he had full
confidence 111 these officials. Complaints had been previously made, hav-
ng relation to this subject, had been
investigated aiui lound to be ground-

not accept a resolution of this kind.
J.A. McDonald thought there was

by the membe;- for Nivuu,, ihan the
premier appeared willing to admit. And
in any evvnt he did not think the government should decline the opportunity
offered to have the public mind

Parker Wi.lif.ms remarked that if
opportunitv wc-i'.. given to have this
question ventilated, t.ne House would
find that iur. riawthornwaite's figures
as to the number 0' Mongolians employed in Lie mine.i would be found
correct. To-day he stated it to be 405.
Hi n. Mr. McBride said the datagiven
the utoer uuy was for th. year 1906
only At that time he was unable to
give the figures for 1907, as he did not
nave them before him at that time.
Pa.ker Williams declared .hat the
Mungo.ians did not relieve the same
wages 11s white miners, and said he was
prepared to make this statement good.
As to me inquiry referred to - by the
, remier, he argued that it was a farce,
o..e government having invited the mine
owners lo say a to the truth of ihe
allegations, which siiould have been sub-
