The Pharaohs.
Modern reaaaroh haa seldom
brought the dead past into mora
vivid contrast to the living present
than in the case of the recent discoveries amid the royal tombs of
Egypt. The two most interesting
articles in the May Century are on
thia subject. The one ia entitled
"Finding Pharaoh," and other "Pharaoh and his Daughter," Tho particular Pharaoh in queation ia the
fame in both cases, the renowned
Kamses II,, known to the Greeks as
Sesostris, and to Jews and Christianity as he who, knowing not
Joseph, oppressed the Ohildren of
Israel. The first of theae articles
gives a very graphic account of the
finding of this antique majesty's
corpse in the place where it had
been buried amid mighty lamentation more than three thousand years
ago. Time, which blots out so
much, had blotted out from the
memory ot man the location of the
royal resting place, and it was accidentally that its discovery was made.
The circumstances attending this
discovery belong to the romance of
this bran.li of science. For some
time the officials ot the museum at
Bulak hod been puzzled -.understand how visitors from Thebes
brought back so many curiosities
known to belong to the time of
Barneses II., his father and his
grandfather. It was shrewdly suspected that Arabs in the vioinity
had made discoveries which they
were keeping to themselves and
turning to their own profit Detectives were set to work. Arrests
were made. Kvery means was taken
to extort confession, even the bastinado being tried on the more refractory. But it was all in vain. The
victims either had nothing to reveal
or their cupidity wub stronger than
their nervous system and they refused to tell what they knew. A1!
length liberal "bakhshish" prevailed
over the resolution of one of four
brothers who had mode a lucky
"find" and were in a good way of
becoming rich from it tht place
was revealed, thoroughly explored
and found to be in vory truth the
tomb of the greatest of the Pharaohs and of many others who in
their day and in their several degrees had been very great people.
The article on "Pharaoh and his
Daughter" is bountifully illustrated
with pictures of Barneses and of his
favorite queen, who, according to
the authorities, seems to have been
also one of liis very numerous oompany of daughters, His majesty
was fully possessed with the idea of
his own glory and determined that
future ages should be well acquainted with his features, for he had
them out oat in solid stone as often
as the fancy seised him, which
would seem to have been very often,
and many of these old effigies have
resisted all attempts of Father Time
to destroy them and are well-nigh
as life-like to day as when first executed, They aro masterpieces of
the sculptor's art and give us the
highest respect for the realistic ability of anoicnt Egyptian genius, as
it is not at all difficult to trace a
really wonderful likeness between
them and the face of tho rcently-
discovered mummy wliich, by the
way, as if in mockery of human
greatness, is duly numbered and "on
sight" among other "antiquities" in
the museum at Bulak. This very
interesting magazine artiole enters
somewhat fully into the genealogy
of Rameses, and by physiological
comparisons, as well as from the information gained from the "Tablet
of four hundred years," as a memorial slab of syenite found among the
ruins ot Zoan, is called, and other
sources, connects him with those
Shepherd Kings of still more ancient days, who mado shepherding
suoh an abomination to the Egyptians, His father Seti seems to
have been somewhat wanting in
royal blood, according to the ideas
current at the time on those mysteries, but his mother, Tuna, more
thau made up for any of he'r lords'
deficiencies in that respect, her blood
being the bluest of the blue, she be
ing descended directly from Thoth*
mes III. and Amenophis III. The
monumental records mention her as
"Boyal Wife, Royal Mother, Heiress and Sharer ot the Throne." So
much on her father's side, On her
mother's none the less was shea
princess in her own right, for her
father was a powerful king and her
mother Queen of Mesopotamia. A
portrait of this royal lady shows her
to have been attractive enough to
have pleased even our modem notions of beauty. The writer of the
article, Mr. John A. Paine, very
reasonably asks if this Chaldean
origin ot Rameses on his father's
side, and Masopotamian on his
mother's, nay not explain that Bib
Heal verse which says,,,"For thus
saith tlie Lord Ood: My people went
down aforetime into %ypt to sojourn there, nnd the Assyrian oppressed them without cause,"—Toronto Globe.

AMBNDINO THE OBIHBS BILL.
London, May 13.—In the oommone
Healy, in order to meet the cue of

sworn    information by the injured
fatty. Holmes, attorney general for
relaud, repudiated the smondinent ns
unnecessary. Healy ' challenged
Holmes to show a single instance
where au Orangeman hsd been hanged
for the murder of a Catholic. Holmes
was glad of the. opportunity afforded
him to eiplain hia reason for aaving
the blood of Giffin was on the head of
Earl Spencer. Earl Spencer knew
that rival nationalist and Orange
meetings were announced to be held
in Dromon on tha same day, and that
they ought to be prohibited; therefore
he (Holm-s)mainuined the expression
waa justifiable. Sir Wm. Harcourt
reproached Holmes with reiterating an
expression intended to inflame party
passion. Balfour said the hat speaker
need not fear that the example of
Holmes would have any serious effect
upon tho gantleman below the gangway, and asked whether tbt opposition would support an amendment extending to unproclaimed districts Ihe
operation of a olause whioh they were
now opposing word by Word.   Glad*

An euttrn exchange, comment
ing upon Prof. Shaler's paper oh
natural gat, whioh appean in the
laat iuue of the Fvrum, conjectures
that this gat may probably exist in
Ontario. Prof. Shaler uyi it is
only-whtn therockiltnositoremain
unfractured and in tolerably hori-
nmtal attitudes, and when beds of
porous rook are overlaid by beds of
very compact clay, that we find the
conditions in . which this material
may he firmly impritoned. Our co-
temporary uys: "Thete conditions
obtain over large areas ot Canada,
and if the present director of the
geological aurvey ware not above
everything practical he might be
expeoted to institute a regular
tearch for natural gas. Nearly all
petroleum wells afforded it in abundance, but, though it waa known to
be a valuable fuel to long ago as
1821, no systematic effort to utilise
it was made until during the last decade. In 1873 it waa first uaed in
Armstrong County, Pa., for the
manufacture of bar iron. From
that time ita employment haa in-
oraaeed rapidly, ahd the report of
the United States geological survey
estimates that "the natural gas used
in 1886 for heating and illuminating
purposes, was equivalent to 3,131,-
000 tont of coal, having a value of
$.,857,000." The value of the
Mme amount of gas in Ontario,
when no coal is found, would be
not leu than from eight to ten million dollars. The advantage of a
supply of this fuel is estimated by
Prof. Shaler at not less than ten.
per eent on the capital engaged in
tbe Amerioan factories that have it,
and an effeot of ita utilisation has
already been to transfer large iron
works to the Pittsburgh district,
when it is obtained. There is, however, considerable economic risk in
founding industries upon the supply,
because experience haa already
shown that the subterranean stores
are not inexhaustible. The outflow
boa mott of the borings has steadily diminiihed with the multiplication of wells upon adjacent ground.
In nut eattt the gas is under the
high preuure of about 1,000 pounds
to the square inch, hence migrates
through rock crevices for great dis
tansat toward the point of escape
provided by each new boring. Eaoh
well drains a large territory, and in
order to secure a continuance of
supply the state ought to regulate
thev linking. Should a successful
search for rock gat be made in Canada, tlie legislatures might well ttep
in at once and compel proprietors to
refrain from dettructive multiplication .of Aeeingt."

The CIM of Shear*..
Notwithstanding differences of
opinion reelecting the mental condition of Shearer, the slayer of
Murne, then it no doubt but publio
opinion generally demanded hit execution. ..The orime was a monstrous
one. Without any immediate provocation Shearer, in cold blood,
walked up to his victim and stabbed
him repeatedly and viciously after
the fashion of a man who it impelled by revenge or whose mental
equilibrium hat been disturbed. If
Shearer wis really responsible for
hit acts, flit, crime certainly deserves
the t-verest punishment the law
oould: inflict, for it must have been
the mult of premeditation, and it
proved the existence of a brutal nature. But some physicians have expressed the opinion that Shearer
might have keen under the influence
of delusion resulting from .mental
aberration, and their testimony
learnt tht imprtuion that thty did
not regard him aa altogether responsible. Against this testimony we
have that of other professional men
tome of whom teem quite clear in
the opinion that the prisoner was
aane gnough to control his actions.
Tha question it one what a good
deal of difference of opinion among
profeulonal men might he expeoted.
It it often a matter of much di_B-
oulty to determine the exact condition of the mental faculties. Some
penoni an entirely une, apparently, en all aubjtcta but one, and in
tome the lympttmi of derangement
are moat diffioult to find. The line
that separates between a sound mind
and a mind diseased is often as indistinct a* the line that divides the
animal from the vegetable in certain
forme o! We. It mutt be evident
that Shearer had a motive in com-
mitting the crime, or he muit have
Ui control. Noi infficient motive
teemo to have been brought out at
the trial. It hai been itated that
ru a ditpute ol |8 between
aad hii viotim some time
,., and that the priMner threatened
at he would Mil Murno for it on
right, 7 Bit one can scarcely imagine that any une tt-urwould com-

master of himself it seems a pity to
hang .him; but he could never be
trusted with liberty, and tliere is no
doubt that people generally think
his crime entitles him to execution.

EHYMES FOB BOBBOWDBB,
Curious Keaas of Claiming 'Oramtclp
In Books; -
Some people have a strange way
of designating their ownership ot books.
Of courso you remember, when a
eohoolb-y, what' ridiculous do.gerel
some ot the scholars wrote ln theirs,
As for example;
'• This book I-John Smith's,
Myilstlsuother;
7ou touch ono
And you'U feet the other.".
And again:
"Steal not this book, my honest friend,
Por tear the gallows'11 hs thy and."
Once more:
" Steal not this book, for fear of shame,
Por here you see the owners name;
And when you die the Lord will say;
' Where le that book you stole away t'
And if you say you do not know,
Ho theu will cast you down below."
A great many grown-up childnn
havs adopted the oustom In a graver
mood.
The two verses commonly used an:
"If i hou art borrowed by attend,
Bight welcome shall he be,
To read, to study, not to lend,
But to return to me."
And this:
" Not that Imparted knowledge doth
Diminish learning's store:
But books, Iflnd.lt often lent,
Boturn to ihe ito mors."
There Is one found In a book formerly
belonging to a well-known resident of
New fori:
"Anyonomay borrow, but a gentleman returns."
David W. Jayne's books have the following Scriptural quotation:
" Oo thou rather to them that sell,
and buy for yourselves."
The following rather severo lines were
used bya Massachusetts mu:
" Stern power of Justice, lift thy wand
In spite ot mercy's look;
Strike him who with presumptuous
hud
Purloins this valued book."
Aaron Putnam, who flourished In Med-
ford, Mass., about one hundred yean
ago, used these lines:
" The wicked borrow, but do not return again. See thon art not oneof that
number."
Duncu C. Pell, of New York, had
this rather churlish motto, not at all ln
keeping with his character:
" He does not lend his books."
W. J, Snelling, oneof the early editors
ot the Boston Herald, had these Instructions:
" Do not turndown the leaves to mark
ths plaoe, but put In a slip of paper. Do
not give the book to children for a plaything. Handle not with dirty hands.
Beturn the book when you have read It."
It Wu the Other On..
A year ago we wero all at one of the
lakeside resorts, where Pluohette had
become all the rage, and everybody waa
Intent upon exploring the mysteries of
tho future.
.Upon this particular evening a young
man who had developed strong medium-
Ifltlo powers, had hia hand upon Pluu-
chette, when I was called from the
room to welcome a friend, a young
lady woo had just arrived from Lakeside.
A few minutes later I entered with
my friend, u utter stranger to them
all, upon my arm. With mischievous
Intent, I stepped forward to the table
and suld:
" Now, PlMichette, If you cu tell ma
truly whether this young lady fell In
love wlille she was at Lakeside, I will
believe In you."
" Sho did," promptly wrote' tho little
machine.
"With whom? Cu you tell his
name!"
"Cortalnlyi It ts • 'vary common
name." My friend gave a little shriek.
" Is lt Smith or Brown!" I continued.
" It Is the other one," answered Plan-
ohetta.
"Did you 'over!" exclaimed my
friend.
Sure enough, she married Jones very
shortly afterwards, ud thoy have been
very happy.—[St Louis Spectator.
Short Chapter on Chemical Nom.n-l.tnr_,
Persons who undertake to gain through
chemical literature a knowledge ot what
chemists an doing In ma for the
world encounter a discouraging nomenclature which repels them by Its apparent Intricacy ud Ita polysyllable
character.
Their opinion of tha terminology of
en exact science la notenhuoed when
they learn that "blacklesd " contains no
lead, " oopporea" contains no copper,
"mosaic gold "no gold, ud "German
■liver," no silver; that" carbolic acid "
Is not u add, ud that "oil
otvltrol"ls not u oU; that olivo
oil 1. a •' salt" but "rook oU " Is neither
an oil or salt; that some sugars an
alcohols, ud somo kinds ot wax an
ethers; that "cream of tartar," has
nothing ln common with oream, " milk
of Ume " with milk, " butter of antimony" with butter, "sugar of lead"
with sugar, nor " Uver ot sulphur" with
the animal organ trom which lt was
named.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(-UIMITH-D.)
ON THB 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to bo known as the
"Britiih Columbian Printing Co.,
Iiiniiteil." Tke concern tias been for
nearly a yoar owned and controlled by
tho British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria nnd Vanconver. The object of
tho now company is to continue the publication of tho British Coluhdian newipaper and carry on a general printing and
pul 4 Wliny concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, Thore will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tho management of the establishment, ami its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Thc Colombian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and'
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of inch schemes a
may bo considered in the publio Interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over hy Mr. T. R.
Pcarson, who will coutinuo to carry it on
iu liis uwn name and for his own benefit.
It Is dosirnhlo that a dally newspaper
ihould be maintained in this city, and
the now company aiks for publio patronage on the ground tlint it Is engagod In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Col-
i-miu as bo judged on Its own merit), and
supported only so long as Its policy is
enconr-tstt with its professions. In consequence of this bniinoss change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delny so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

The Security offered to polioy holders Is

Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing evory Item or Income and how expen-
Its position Is ascertained annually /rom

Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfel table after two years'
existence;
Ita proflta an distributed upon an equitable Toasls. The profits to one olass of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, wbloh
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Sir John Macdonald has stated in
parliament that the government would
contribute an annual subscription of
175,000 in aid of the Paoific steamship
service, on condition that tho imperial
government would grant 8300,000 annually. The sorvico proposod was tri-
monthly, between Vancouver and
Hongkong.
The determination of the city council to dismiss certain police officers was
not taken, we are sure, without careful
consideration. The executors of tho
law must be beyond suspicion—if they
are not, tiie whole administration of
justice falls into contempt. Let us
have first-class men in these positions
by all means.
The Ousts Kisa.—Captain Snwyor
and crow of the ship Ocean King,
which wu lost at sea, have arrived at
Port Townsend from Ncali Bay. They
were picked up by a scaling schooner
and landed at the latter place. The
fint report wu that the skip had boon
burned, but it is now stated thnt she
foundered during a gale.

Bioobot Cut on R_coit_.—Last
Friday the mill hands at Port Blakely
made up their minds they would rustle
and see hew much lumber the mill
could turn out in ten hours. All hands
worked with a will and the machinery
never worked smoother. When the
mill whistled to notify tlie men thnt it
wu time to knock off the tallymen in
tho mill figured up nud annouced that
the mill tha, day had cut 303,000 feet
of lumber. This is the biggest day's
work ever done at Port Blakely, and
we doubt if it has ever been equalled
by a mill on the Pacific coast.—W-

to date by the city of Vancouvor towards the relief of tho Nanaimo suffer*
en: News-Advertiser list, (045; employees of the Hastings Sawmill Co.,
$250; city subscription, $500; Royal
City Planing Mills, «1«0* Leamy &

of Phythiu, $130; Odd Fellows'

date, with more to follow. Tho Next
complains that this journal reported
the subscriptions at Vancouver at $450.
We are sorry if wo under-estimated
the amount. At the time the figures
were u near correct ns could be ascertained.
Statistics or thb Naxaimo Disas
ter.—jV resume of the dispatches roceivod by this paper concerning tho
recent terrible disaster at Nanaimo
gives the following woful statistics; In
the mine at the time of the explosion
were 177 human beings—102 white
men and. 75 Chinamen. Six of the
white men were rescued alive. Tho
places of nativity of the remainder of
the white men, who perished, were as
follows: England 30, Wales 8, Sweden
4, United States 10, British Oolumbia
15, Cape Breton 4, Scotland 7, Ireland
5, Nova Sootia 2, Italy 4, and Holland
1. Forty-five of the unfortunate
minen left widows to mourn for them,
and 130 children lost their fathers.
Thx Nanaimo Disaster.—Nanaimo,
a western Canadian town, in whose
afiain Winnipeg should have an immediate - interest, is making an appeal to
the civilized world for aid. By a terrible mining disaster upwards of _ one
hundred and fifty of the male inhabitants of the place liave lost their lives,
and a large number of families have
been left dependent on the charity of
the world. Times may be hard, and
corporation finances iu none too satisfactory.condition, but cries for assistance in such cases cannot be ignored.
It is to be hoped that the council, nt
its meeting to-night, will take prompt
action, and we feel satisfied the public
will endorse its action.—Iftnm'_.«;

William Shearer to Buffer Death
for Ills Crime.
THE OTHER CRIMINALS DISPOSED OF.
TllE   ri'OK's C'HAlUiE.
The throe day trinl of William
Shearer was concltulod lost night. His
lordship's clinrqe to the jury occupied
about an hour and three-quartera, and
was as follows:
"GENTIEMEN   OF   THE  JtlEY.—TllO
prisoner stands indicted for wilful
murder, the highest crimo known to
the law, and ono you must consider
with care. Tho enso against him us
to the actual murder is undisputed.
Four of livo witnosscs testify to this.
It is not iucumbont upon tho crown to
provo a inotivo for the crime. Who
does a cruel act voluntarily does it feloniously and with malico aforethought.
The defence set up by tho prisoner in
this case is insanity. Bofore I call
your attontion to this I must deal with
tho other circumstances of tlio caso and
thc inotivo for the crime. A motive
to kill or rovenge is inconsistent with
tho theory of insanity. The more clear
the inotivo the more conclusive is the
evidence of sanity. There are certain
things wo can't get ovor; he is in
Murne's camp, and tho fact of what
he said when he gave himself up to
Hamilton. A long standing ill-feeling,
probably greatly increased by brooding, seoins to define a motive for his
crimo. Tho onus of proving his insanity lios with the prisoner, and if it ia
not proved to your satisfaction, why
he must take the consequence. Observe the conduct of tho prisoner anterior to tho crime. He is working
for Murue in August and then leaves.
Ho returns again m February. Then
he is working for Mr. Hamilton on
the C.P.R. wharf and the crime occurs.
Observe his conduct as to Iub insanity.
He gives himself up to Hamilton, and
throws away the knife. I can't say
this is nn insane act. He is taken into
custody nnd sends for a lawyer and
takes good enro to say nothing, oxcept
by hie lawyer's advice. It is your duty
to watch and detect his insanity.
Medical men go to see him and he will
not speak until advised to do so by his
counsel. It is highly probable he had
somo quarrel with Murne and by
brooding over it it became a delusion.
If he considered Murne his enemy and
with a view to avonge this he takes
his life, this explains his remarkable
words to Mr. Hamilton. There you
have tho motive. I can't help pointing out that the motive is a vory feigned one. Then comes tho insanity.
Doctors are called in and asked to tes
tify what insanity will justify homicide. Lot ino tell you what the law is
on this point: "Every man is presumed to be sano until the contrary is
proved." I must say I can't find ovidonco that this man did not know he
was doing wrong at tho timo of crime.
He has supposed fits. He tells the doc*
tors of his delusions ami Murne's perse*
cutions towards liim. Another proof
that i ho knew he was doing wrong is his
fear of being lynched." His Lordship
then reviewed the evidence on both sides,
pointing ont the peculiar character of
the prisoner's defence. He Instructed
the jury as to the law in such a cose. In
conclusion, his lordship said: "Gentle*
men, there is th. ouo; there Ib the cruel
aet; then is. the motive and there is the
alleged delusion and Insanity. There is
nothing further that I need call your
attention to. If you wont any information on any point of law I will be happy
to inform you."
The jury retired, remaining out nearly two hours. Thoy brought in a verdict
of guilty of murder againBt the prisoner.
His lordship then pronounced sentence
of death upon the prisoner, the date of
the hanging being fixed for the Oth of
July next. As sentence of death was
pronounced everyone in tho court room
turned to see what effect it would have
on the prisoner, He did not appear in
the least moved by the judgment, HU
manner wu careless and aeT.-poss._Bed.
When asked if ho had anything to say
ho answered, "Nothing. He walked
with steady step from tho dook to the
carriage which conveyed him to the jail.
On reaching the jail he was led to his
cell and locked in. He threw himself
on hiB bed without undressing and slept
until one o'clock, when he awoke and
called for a cup of coffee, which was
given him.' Drinking tliis, he lay down
again antl slept well until morning.
THE OTUEE BENTEX.B.
The following are the sentences of the
other prisoners as pronounced to-day:
Jno. Welsh, for burglary in Vanoouver,
18 months in jail; Wing Chung, for bur*
glai-y, ,1 years in penitentiary; Jim Will*
lams, for killing Indian Bill, -It months

of them 2 months ln jail and tho other
.1 months in jail.
Memorial Service.
In tho town of Hope, B.C., on Sabbath afternoon of May 8th u large
number assembled in the schoolroom,
which was draped in blaok, and enlivened with llowen, to pay tho hist tribute of* honor to the memory of their
lnte highly esteemed and muoh
lamented friend and citizen, Joseph A.
Howes,
The service was opened by singing
"Wo shall Sleep, but Not Forever,
followed by the reading of the 00th
and 103rd Psalms, after whieh prayer
was offered, that thu Spirit of God
might deeply impress tho paramount
importance of living prepared for the
great event that must of a surety come
to all. A paper was then read by one
of the young mon, giving a sketch of
tho secular history of tho deceased and
the high respeot ho commanded during
his residence in British Columbia.
After singing "Oh Think of a Home
Over There, an earnest address was
given on the brevity and uncertainty
of life, and the advantage and privi*
lego of choosing the sorvice of Christ,
embodying the eternal hopo of the departed, nnswen to parental prayers,
and tho manifest loving kindness of
God in the guiding hand of his providence. The dew-drop on many a
oheek betrayed the heart's deepest
emotions during the hour of felt solem
nity. After singing "The Sweet Bye
and Bye" this touohing and never-to-
be-forgotten servico was brought to a
close by pnyer and the benediction.

The Alaska Seizures.
Ottawa, May 13.—Tho correspondence with reference to the seizure of
British Columbia sealen in Behring's
Sea waa brought down in parliament
to-night. The Canadian government
hu demanded reparation from the
United States for tho seizures, but in
his latest reply, dated iu January, Secretary of State Bayard said be could
not come to any decision until certain
papers reach htm from Alaska. Meantime he gave instructions for the sealing schooners' release. Since then the
captains of tho vessels have put iu
large elaims for damages. Britisli
Minister West, in conversation with
Bayard, represented to him the unjustifiable nature of the seizure. Bayard contended that the United States
obtained a right to Behring Sea from
tho Russians. West then pointed out
that when Russia had Alaska the
United States contested claims similar
to those tbey were now making, which
Bayard admitted. West, however, in
his despatch to the imperial government, ssys Bayard is vory conciliatory.
