Premier .Laurier's speedy response  to a telegram from Kossland on the  smelter question tlmt the parties owning the Le Roi, who want to huilcl  their smelter at Northport hud better  go slow, must have conic .-is an unpleasant surprise to thu Witt'lkiuds,  etc., who have* dared to assert that  Canada dare not put an export duty  on ore. In the present temper of the  Dominion parliament an export duty  would he put on" with scarcely a  disscntent voice. As tin intelligent  community we do not want, to adopt  these haibiirous and ��������� antiqiri.ted  methods of restricting trade and intercourse, such as alien acts and export  duties, hut if forced to do so in self  defence, wo shall use Iheni with some  effect. In accordance*, with .the host  traditions of the old country," there is  not a country on tlie continent,.in  which foreigners have so much freedom and opportunity to make use to  the utmost of its natural advantages.  But il would he a great -mistake for  them to imagine on that account that  Canadians have the least intention of  allowing, anybody except themselves  to run it. ."    ,"  '  The Government cun arrange to hold  the river, bank, Allen's Brewery will  stand., lie ciininiiiiagt* the test .himself.

XV  in-  The   question  for this -province   to  decide  is  whether we   intend   to.let  this business go on or -not.    We can,  if we choose,   elect repiesentatives at  the next provincial election pledged to  repeal this Cassiar act   or any   other  concessions, in which'the government  has-been-to-Iiberal-iti-parting-with-the  resources of the country for the  benefit of the faintly compact at Victoria  and its friends.   But if   we  intend to  do so, we certainly ought to warn  investors, who may he disponed  in  perfect good faith to put money into certain enterprises on   tho   strength   of  these  concessions, that  we   mean   to  retract them.    A  petition should   be  'drawn up.-iskingthe Dominion Government to veto .the obnoxious acts and  clauses, such    as    the    Cassiar    Aid  -Bill and the ltithet clause in the Railway Loan Act.   Perhaps constitutionally they cannot help us, but it would  shew outsiders what the temper of the  people i.s with regard   to   these   measures.    We shall then  be able wilh a  cleat' conscience to instruct our representatives in  the new pitrlianicnl lo  repeal lliem.   We cannot afford to allow  a  gove.'i-nmi'nt   which   has   long  sincelo3ttheconlider.ee ol* the country to foi co these flagitious measures  on   the  people   with   a  cynical    impudence, unparallelled  in  the history  of parliamentary   institutions.     The  acts must be repealed.   At the same  time the good faith  of  the province,  though pledged  by a breach ot   trust  with the province itself, must as far as  possible   be  maintained.    As   to the  members of the government and their  supporters, it is high time an  example  was made.   The temptation to squander the magnificent resources of  this  province for unworthy ends is becoming to great to be   eombatted e-by the  dread of mere   expulsion   from oilice.  We'shall not get a good  government  till a more drastic remedy is provided,  anil we have it to our hand.   An  impeachment of the present government  for betray.-']  of tlie public trust will  restore a much needed sense of  personal responsibility to our public men  and provide a day of reckoning for the  anticipation  of defaulters, instead  of  that complete impunity to which they  are no doubt loeiking forward.

In a degree  this is true.    But  not wholly so.  There was a time when certain"  surface indications were accepted  as positive evidence of the value  of tbe ore beneath them, and sales  were made based- upon such  indications", butscience liasstepped  in, and ore supposed to be worthless has assumed a new value.  Consequently the old surface indications are not considered infallible guides by the prospector  of this day, and., are sometimes  entirely ignored by the mining  expert.  "Gold is where you Iind it," has  become a modern prospector's  axiom, and not without good  reason, for valuable mines are now  being worked whicli have been  tramped over for months by  supposedly -well posted mining  men, and carefully turned down  in the past by the experts.  When a man puts his money in  a mine now. he not only knows he  is buying a mine, but he knows  just about how much ore is in  sight and about what it is worth  per ton- He therefore takes not  so great a risk in reality, as many  merchants do, who credit goods  a thousand miles from their homes.  When the return* from a paying  mine are compared with the investment the risk becomes of no  moment, and some mines are so  productive that they pay  dividends as regularly as, and  much larger than, bank stock or  any lirst class security.  Jn any well managed mine the  risk is out of all proportion to the  returns, for where it may cost  $20,000 to open and develop a mine  s-j that it pays expenses and  finally dividends, the returns  . frequently run as high as SI00,000  in a single year.

"INSECT SPIRITS" PROHIBITED.'  The following is from the official report of tho House of Commons on the  21st ot" April. Mr. Nicholas Floorl Davin  was replying to some rem-uks of his  colleague from the North West. Mr.  Oliver, and proceeded: "I did not  manifest the miserable, wretched, insect spirit ho has manifested here, and  that ranks him not on it level with hon.  legislators in this chamber."  Air. Speaker���������I am afrnid both hon.  gentlemen in their last fow remarks  have not been unite in order. Tho hon.  gentlemen, (Mr. Oliver) spoke of mean  insinuations in regard to the speech of  an hon. gentleman, and the hon. gentleman who is now addressing the  House is going pretty far into the use  ot language which should not be used  by one hon. member to another.  Air. Davin���������Am I to understand that  it is henceforth the rule in this House  of Parliament, that it is abreach of the  rules to say of a member lliathe shows  a miserable insect spirit.  Air.

Language that one  gentleman would, not use lo another jn  any other place withoutbeingolfensive  should not be used by one lion, member towards another in this House.  That is the simple rule which I would  like to see followed.  Air. Davin���������Shades of Disrael*. I  wish we had Air. Disraeli here; 1 wish  we had Air. Gladstone here as a witness.

'.    It is believed representations will be  j made    personally   to   the  Sultan   to  ' induce a modification of these terms  but it is foreseen thatvthis will be  dittic-nlL owing to the attitude of the  powerful old Turkish war part}-. If  the Porte should prove obdurate an  European conference isnotimpiobable  although at present Russia is opposed  to sitch a step. * It is' remarked as  certain that the powers' will not consent to the retrocession of Thessaly.  liven Germany is believed to be resolute on this point, and altogether the  reply from the Porte .caused the  greatest surprise.  TO CUT OFF. THEIR RETREAT  THE  GREEKS LOSE   ANOTHER  SERIOUS BATTLE.  Powers Asked   to  Intervene- to   Check  the   Progress   of  the  Turks���������The  Powers Find the Protection of Greece  . an     Extremely     Difficult     Matter  London, Alay IS.���������The latest news  from the sent of hostilities by way of  Athens shews that the battle of yesterday ceased about nine o'clock in the  evening, but will probably be resumed  this morning. Thus far the only  account of the lighting has been  received from the Turkish side. , It, is  evident lrom the Greek account that  the Greeks hn vc> sutTered a most serious  defeat", and if the left wing has given  way as appears probable, l-Mhcm  Pasha may be able to cut oil'the Greek  retreat iind separate General Sinolen-  at Souroi from the main army.  This is 1'Jdhcms reply to tlie foolish  attempt of Col. Manns to snatch a  victory in Epirus. If Greece had prevented Alanos lrom playing this last  card of a gambler, Turkey might perhaps cease hostiliiies, as it is now she  is in full possession of Thessaly and the  powers will find the task ot protecting  Greece more difficult than ever.  Disuatches from Athens represent  the .populace as bounded when the  news of the fighting came. They hoped  to the,last that the powers would present Turkey from going any further.  One account reports the Greek government as threatening to take very  extreme and desperate steps unless  Europe arrests the progress of the  invaders.
