Murder at Victoria.
Shot through the heart by a burglar whom he surprised in his residence upon returning from the

there is no clue, made good his escape.

Wellington Colliery Co., manager

Olven Suspended Sentence.
Indian Dr. Tom, who has been
operating in the up country for
several weeks was arrested this
morning at Nicola charged with receiving money under false pretences, having accepted a fee of $10.
He admitted the charge and made
restitution, and was let go on suspended sentence. He has just
been released at Ashcroft where he
claims he left the sum of $200 to
be paid back to his victims. He
left this afternoon for Sullivan
reserve, Quilchena.
To the Editor of the Herald:
Sir,-Many measures have been resorted to in the vain endeavor to re-organize the political order, and many of
the measures adopted have failed, because they have been placed upon too
low a pedestal, and have not clearly
portrayed to the public mind the true
ideal of a man's duty to his God, his
home and his country.
Any measures that can be adopted
for preserving the sacredness of the
ballot, will be gladly welcomed by
those who are working for the betterment of society, and where the Christian church is true to its mission it
will heartily co-operate with the press
in any laudable measure having this
end in view. Thus society will be saved from corruption and will be purified
with a new life and a new morality.
We honor and love our native land and
are anxious for her future success and
prosperity and are eager to exercise
our influence for the uplifting of the
great mass of society and preserve inviolate the charter of our birthright
and privilege-the ballot.
Let us look at the ballot. A ballot is
a vote upon some question, or measure
or law, as a constitutional law, brought
before the citizen voters to decide.
More commonly it is a vote by which
each citizen makes his choice of the
man whom he wishes to hold certain
offices of trust as his representative,
whether in the state or nation, to enact
and to execute laws.
The ballot is a piece of paper. It
means nothing except in the hands of a
citizen who is privileged to show by its
use of it what kind of a man he is.
When we speak of the purification of
the ballot, we mean the purification of
the men and their acts in the use or
misuse of the ballot.
Upon the sacredness of the ballot depends the future stability and prosperity of the country, for it is the true
measure of the virtue and intelligence
of a citizen.
If the ballot can be bought it then
becomes corrupt and at once strikes a
blow at the true life of the state. Corrupt men would then hold office and
frame our laws and bribery would be
rampunt.
We are glad, however, to know that
the moral conscience is not dead or dying, and numbers are embracing the
wide opportunity afforded them and are
WILL COMMENCE OPERATION THE
FIRST OF MAY.
Will Build a Branch  Line From Fort
George to   Vancouver.-Lots at
Prince Rupert on Market
ln September.
"I feel confident that actual construction on the coast seetion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, east from
Prince Rupert, will be started about
the 1st of May. We shall also build
the Kitamaat section with all possible
speed. There need be no idle people in
British Columbia for the next three
years. Our company will furnish work
for every laborer who seeks employment."
This was the definite statement concerning coast construction made by Mr.
Wainwright before he went east Sunday.
Mr. Wainwright also set at rest all
rumors respecting the date when the
townsite of Prince Repert will be placed on the market.
"From the present outlook I don't
think it will be possible to sell any lots
before the first of next September," he
continued. "Before we start selling
the townsite must be surveyed, the
plans accepted by the Lands & Works
department at Victoria and the city incorporated. All this will take time.
The plans are now being worked out by
two Boston landscape artists who re
cently visited Prince Rupert,
Harry Orchard on Wednesday,
before Judge Fremont Wood in the
District Court at Caldwell, Idaho,
was allowed to withdraw his former plea of not guilty, entered at
his first arraignment, and enter a
I plea of guilty to the charge of
murder in the first degree, as charged in the indictment. Judge
Wood will sentence Orchard on
March 18.
Orchard pleaded guilty to having killed former Governor Steun-
enberg by the explosion of a dynamite bomb at the side gate of, his
residence in Caldwell early in the
evening of December 30th, 1905.
He was arrested for the crime on
January 21, and in February confessed that he was hired to kill
Steunenberg hy William S. Haywood, secretary; Charles H. Moyer,
president, and G. A. Pettibone,
honorary member of the Western
Federation of Miners. Haywood
and Pettibone were tried in Boise,
Idaho, and set free. The case against Moyer was dismissed.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
A writer in Printer's Ink makes
an interesting diagnosis of the reason why some towns are "slow."
He says : "Anybody who has bad
experience travelling among the
small cities and towns of this country knows that wide differences are
seen between places of the MMM
population, and in much the MUM
locality, and enjoying what would
seem to be equal opportunities for
trade. One place of 10,000 people,
for instance, will be thoroughly
alive, its shops bright, its people
brisk, and prosperity apparently on
every hand. Another, perhaps but
25 miles away, will be thoroughly
dead, its stores deserted, dull, dusty, its people given to the habit of
cracker-box conversation. In one
town it is a pleasure to step off a
train and look for business, while
in the second an experienced traveling man has no sooner alighted
than he wants to know the time
of the next train out."
The diagnosis is ridiculously
simple. In one, the newspapers
encourage live advertising by charging a rate wliich includes letting
up new ads. as often as the merchant cares to change. In the
other, an antiquated rate system is
in vogue, making a low charge for
space and an extra charge for every
change of advertisement. It's just
worth while considering what good,
live advertising by the merchants
does for a town and its trade.-The

STOP THAT KNOCKING.
Let there be less shaking of
heads and more joining of hands
in pledge not to let the wheels of
prosperity roll back a foot more
than is necessary for safety.
The man who cannot carry into
his place of business some element
of hopefulness had better take a
day's vacation by visiting some unfortunates worse off than himself,
and then going back to his work
feeling that he has a reason to feel
ashamed of himself, says the Wall
Street Journal. Do not bi a sinker, put help to keep things afloat.
Be a corker.
In nine cases out of ten, when
"the times are out of joint," it's
you, mainly, that is "out of joint."
You need a straight out talking to
by somebody who is large-hearted
enough to love you with all your
faults, and courageous enough to
fire the truth at you. It takes a
soldier to stand up and face firing
like that, but it's worth the powder if only you can find someone
capable of doing the shooting.
