It i> reported that the British
government ooveta Faint Roberta,

the Mme. In the name of a long
suffering community the Reveille, on
behalf of our glorious governmont,
horeby quit claims, without iny consideration whatever, except the provisions binding, the Britiih government' to forever keep and hold the
same, all right, title and interest
that the government, of which Whatcom county is a part, holds in the
Point known as Boberte., ..The release of the point in question yearn
ago would have saved to the tax
payers of Whatcom county many
thousands of dollan. Yes, by all
means let it go, The Britishers
would establish a naval station thereon, and our glorious govemment
never will, With fortifications established . on Point Roberts, and
troops stationed there, increased
markets and demands for our produce would be afforded. And further, a few 80-ton guns planted in
close proximity to Blaine and Semiahmoo might produce the wholesome and pacifying effect of preventing the oitisens of those two
rival cities from everlastingly'terror
iang each other and the community
surrounding just prior to the opening of evety term of court in this
county. Yes, there are many advantages to be gained by us and lost
to the Britishers by reason of their
acquisition of Point Roberts, and
now that they have asked for it, the
Reveille is in favor of compelling
them to take it—even if the point
of the bayonet must be called into
requisition to enforce our demands,

mind that the English are in Egypt
to stay; Tlio highway to India is
too valuable for" a grasp upon it,
once secured, to be relaxed. When
the time seems ripe, the temporary
occupation mask will be dropped
and it will be formally announced
that Egypt is an integral portion of
the British empire.-Seattle Post.
BERLIN ABLAZE.
Every few weeks some advanced
Radical in the house of commons
feels called upon to question the
British government concerning the
probable date of the withdrawal of
the British troops from Egypt. The
answer returned is always a noncommittal combination of words
whioh conveys the idea that the
government is really not quite de-
elded in regard to the exaot time at
which tho evacuation shall take
plaoe, but that then is no intention
of keeping a single Britisli soldier
in Egypt a day after order has been
completely restored in tliat unhappy
country and British interests have
been sufficiently taken care of. The
advanced Radical thereupon expresses his gratification and hia fellow membera look upon him with
tbe half contemptuous, half pitying
gase whioh people are wont to turn
upon individuals who have been
squelched. The government's answers to this question, however, are
confined to tho verbal ones which
are thus given in the house of commons. If their actions speak at all,
they tell an entirely different story.
The present generation saw the
English go into Egypt, but the pres
ent generation will not see them go
out They, aro there to stay, and
they will stay unless some combination of the European powers is
formed strong enough to compel
them to relax their hold upon the
Nile valley. The protection of
British interests wag the ostensible
objeot of the original interference
of the English government in the
affaire of Egypt, and the protection
of British interests will be the excuse offered for the annexation of
Egypt to the British empire when
the proper time for that move seems
to have arrived. Annexation is the
only logical outcome of the present
British occupation, and, throughout
all th* ministerial ohange* and vicissitudes at London, the British government haa kept steadily in view
its original intention of Egypt as
muoh a portion of the empire as
India. Every movement since the
bombardment of Alexandria has
been planned and carried out for
the purpose of furthering the attainment of that object, and the
pretense of a temporary occupation
has been a fraud from the fint, For
almost two centuries England and
France have been playing a game of
whioh Egypt was the stake. Franoe
throw down her hand and virtually
went out of the game in 1881 when
she. refused to co operate with England in suppressing the uprising of
the Egyptian people under Arabi
Bar. England saw her opportunity
and was quick to improve it The
bombardment of Alexandria and
the battle of Tel-el kebir followed
in quiok succession, leaving the English troops in complete possession of
lower Egypt. The uprising under
El Mahdi, the advance up the Nile,
the battle of Abu-Klea and the fall
of Khartoum were but incidents of
the occupation and did not ohange
the purpose of the British government or the means which had been
chosen for its accomplishment, The

a city or mtE.
Bbhun, Har. 22.— Tonight Berlin
is like a city on lire., Steeples and
domea shine with tbe brilliance of
electric light as the groundwork of the
illumination. Three rose-oolored
lights shine radiantly from the lofty
avenues in tho centre, where the palaces are situated, to remote' streets
and to the roofs of houses. Bengal
fires are everywhere sending forth soft
glowing flames. The electric light pn
the square tower of'the town hall
emits a ruddy glare. Tho colossal
arches at Pottsdam station are illuminated with eugles, sta und crowns,
and the whole building is encircled
with biasing pitch fires. Amid all
this glow and light 500,000 moved in
perfect order.
THE IHFXBOB's BIRTHDAY.
BiiiUN, Mar. 22.—The ninotleth
anniversary of the Emperor William's
birthday was ushered in hy the pealing
of bells in all the churches and the
tower of the town hall and the sounding of ohorsl. The oity is decorated
as it never was before. Garlands,
flags, laurels, festoons of evergreen,
banners, bright drapery and brilliant
carpets sre hung on every conspicuous
spot where ornaments can be made to
add to the appearance of tbe towp.
Conspicuous by the extreme of their
decorstions are the Royal academy
and university buildings and the eity
reaidenees of the crown' prince Frederick William. The monument of
Frederick the Great is covered with
wreaths and flowers, Wherever there
is a bust or statue of the emperor in a
shop window or other exposed place it
is buried in; flowers. People are all
in holiday attire, and the streets are
thronged. Early in the day special
memorial religious services were held
in all the churches. Children from all
the schools in the city went in .processions, accompanied by bands of
music, to the church services. The
student's procession past the palace
was a grand affair. They went in carriages, of whioh there were several
hundred in line, and carried banners
of the various schools, societies, associations, etc., and wete accompanied
by many bands playing music A
long line of oa.riages was preceded
and followed by students on horse*
back. Passing the palace the bands
played the national anthem, " Pres*
sentied," and " Wach Am Rhein," the
students all singing to the music The
emperor appeared at tbe window as
the procession wss moving past and
remained there a considerable time,
The great crowd in tho street gave
him an ovation. All the members of
the imperial, .family and their princesses drove iu tlie procession' to the
palace and tendered their congratulations to the emperor. The procession
wss cheered by the crowds in tho
streets. The municipal procession
was preceded by heralds snd marshals
bearing the town banners. The whole
body of the evangelical clergy, the
chief civil ahd military authorities,
representing German science and commerce, directors of gymnasiums, burgesses and officers, in all 200,000 persons, were in the preeession, accompanied hy several bands nf music, which
played marches alternately with choruses by trumpeters. The procession
went in stale from the liall tu attend
the commemoration. Al noun a royal
salute of 101 guns wus lirod Princo
Bismarck and Mni'-lnl Vi'ii Moltko
presented their congriiiuhuum to the
emperor at 1 o'clock. Tiuy aero enthusiastically cheered along the route
to and from the palace. The illuminations to-night throughout the city are
superb. A striking feat ire is a picture 100 yards long and 20 yards wide
iii front of the academy of arts depicting events in the emperor's life.
Prince Bismarck and Geu Von Moltko
say that they have received a wonder.
ful reward for their services, the character of which is yet unknown. All
secretaries of department were decorated by the emperor. In receiving
the household deputation the emperur
said: "I have reached this age hy
the grace of god, and if the Lorn
helps me und wants nm tu I may live
to sse another year." Prince Iludnlph
of Austria-Hungary, who is attending
his father's birthday celebration, says
that Germany's foreign policy is pacifio; that peace is assured for 1887,
and that there is no cause for disquiet
either east or west,

Aboit Schools.
As th* appropriation for educa*
tiooal purposes now reaches the
larg* sum of onr $100,000, it is
tin* for the legislature as well as
the taxpayers to consider seriously
"how far thia rapidly - increasing
charge ia to encraach upon the
•caaty revenues of the province.
T*H subject oame up for discussion
laat Friday, when uie honse went
■•'■■ into eomtnittee on the estimates,
bnt th* remarks of those who spoke
w*re confined chiefly to the ques-
tion of free high schools. We
»»v» on several occasions intimated
, ttaUhetiaiewillcomewhenthewhole
<**ho*l eystem must be placed noon
• new b««U. At present the whole
OostDf both publio and high schools
'' ooaMa ont of the provinoial treasury.
'So form finanoial responsibility is
oonoerned, the trustees are simply a
finance oommittee under the govern-
■■•*»*. They cannot raise a ferth-
ing of school funds, and they oan
({Mod nothing but what the govern.
mant cboosw to giv* them.   They
Jhh*. no finanoial responsibility, and,
, ithwshre they have no object in
practising the sublime art of economy ao essential to the popularity
of persons who themselves are rea-
ponsible to the people who have to
provide th* funds. Oneof there-
suits af thk system is almost certain to be extravagance.     Each
' boodof trustees comes to have but
' «n* financial' principle, and that is
to get as much money as it possibly
oan. If the school taxes were im-
possdand collected by order of the
liwlsu board, the rate-payere of
nnh school section would take car*
thataohool taxes did not exceed the
WaWaiiMuuuta of the section, and
flirt they were dispensed with judg
jrtit.-eid economy. It may be
njBfll to carry out a system of
lacal stool tax while so large a
part of th* province is without mn-
nMpal erganigation, but we believe
r this system is adopted
will it be for the country.
«ane$t to the high schools,
is tna, many of the opinions
" during the debate. Some
proposed to withdraw all
aid from high schools,
(dared it as their opin
tkat thef* institutions were not
needed in |k* country Air *11^ -On
th* other hand others, and especially
Mr. Higgins, wished to let the high
Kduek remain free. It would be a
mat mistake to abolish government
high nthool*. It will not do to say
that private schools would spring
Hb to t*k*:theirpl*ce. The value
of the high school is threefold:
T» -prepare teachers for the pnblic
Mluois, to prepare matriculants for
tk* unlvMBtiea, and to afford a general higher education to those who
har* completed th* publio sohool
Mam. H the high schools were
*WMih*d, where should we look tor
«•» pnMi* sehool teaohersl A per-
son who hag graduated from the
nollie school ia not qualified to
teach, and than is no institution in
thaprovine* wh*re he could qualify
to i pattsctly as at the high school.
'Mint* •ohooh cannot take the

(Correspondence of the Columbian,)
Thn man who was reported lost ou
the Siinilknmeeii road some time ago,
and who wa supposed had perished in
the mountains, has, I am happy to inform you, turned up all right. It will
ba recollected thai when last seen he
was near the Oedar Aat Iiouse. It
seems he stepped there one night and
startbd for Hobo with oolyaday'e
jWrteiduiitnd with neither axe nur
blanket, He soon lost all traces of
the trail, and thinking the ereek emptied into the Fruer he followed it.
Floundering through ' the deep snow
over logs and brush, crossing and re*
orosaing the icy stream, he made but
slow progress. His scanty supply of
food waa soon consumed,but day after
day he toiled along, happy if at night
ho found the shelter of a dry log. On
the ninth day, when almost ready to
die, he oame across a anowthoe track.
He followed tbis and found it led to
some traps. He still followed, however, and toward night the blue amoke
ourling above the tree-tops told him lie
wu used. He wu oared for by Hr.
Gordon, the hospitable proprietor of
Boundary valley farm, who nursed
hint like a ohild, and when thoroughly restored furnished him with food
and blankets and sent him on his way
to Hope rejoicing.
Now, Hr. Editor, let me Uk if it
would not be advisable for the government to expend a few hundred dollars
in marking these trail! ao; that thay
o.ji be traveled in winter without a
{juide. With'regard to Boundary val-
ey, Hr, Gordon, who his certainly
been the means of saving this mau a
' life, and the other uttlen in the
neighborhood, should have a better
roadtothoirsettlement, The valley
il a large one, The truil tu the Ska-
get mines posies through it. There
is room yet unoccupied for many settlers. The placer mines in the vicinity furnish a g"nd market for farm
produce. All that ia wanted ia a good
mad to Hope, the head of liuyigatioji
on the Fraser, to make it a very desirable locality for the intending settler. Aa some of your readers, Hr.
Editor, may not know where Boundary valley is, permit me to say that it
is on the Skagit river, 35 milea south*
eut of Hope, a portion of it lying in
in Washington Territory. It is seven
or oight miles long and three or tour
wide.  m

Oounoil met on Saturday. Har. 10;
all the members present. A communication wu nad from the Hon. Jno.
Robson stating that he would use his
best offices to have the settlers consulted with reference to the location
of the road from the North Arm to
Vanoouver; also, a communication
from ume source stating that under
existing circumstances he eould not
promise to have a sufficient sum of
money pieced on the estimates to
build the bridge*, but at the ume
time intimated that a fair share of the
distriot appropriations would fall to
the important settlements on the
North Arm. The board of workare-
ported having let contracts for' building bridges over the dykes at the ends
of the trunk road, one on Sea Island
and one on Lulu Island. Bridgea ordered to be built, and also the flume
extended at the outlet of road ditch
at north end of trunk road. On motion the oouncil went into oommittee
flf the whole on the loan by-law. The
oommittee row and reported the bylaw oomploto. Report adopted and
by-law read the third time and ordered to be submitted to the electors,
the vote to be taken at the town hill

next, Hugh Boyd, Esq., to be returning offlosr. On motion the reeve
wu instructed to consult the legal
advisers of tha company respecting

cefe from the Dominion government

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(iiixCXTHD.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1S87,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concert- wss purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known as the
"British Colombian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tho British Colnmbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The objeot ol
the now company is to continue the publication of the British Colombian newspaper and carry on > general printing ud
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whoso Individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of thc Mainland. . There will be no
slackening of' the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the estab*
lishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Thc Columbia* will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of snch schemes as
may be considered In the public Interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate fiom
any othor business, the j book' and
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who wilt continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.'
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
the uew company asks tor publio patronage on the ground that it is engaged tn
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on its Own merits and
supported only so long as its polioy Is
enoonslstt with its professions, In consequence of this business change all accounts due tho concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

Change or Name.—Tho CoiumWaii
proposes that the name Now Westminster be abbreviated by dropping the
word New. The name, as it stands, is
thought to be unnecessarily long, and
a great troublo and inconvenience to
those who have to write it many times
a day. The suggestion is a very good
one, and we hope to see' it acted upon,
For other reasons than brevity, the

Cape Horn bacon, a few spuds, and
perhaps one of those kind of porterhouse steaks that hnve a nice round

would make a Frenchman's hair curl."
The Weekly Columbian.— Thi
publishers are desirous to make all
subscriptions for the Weekly Colum*
BIAFond with the year. Thit will
enable subscribers to know -precisely
when their subscriptions expire, and
it will greatly simolify the book-keeping. Persons bonding new subscriptions during thc yenr will, therefore,
be good enough tu xond, as far as possible, tbe amount that will pay to the
end of tho current year. The paper
costs, aa nearly as may bo, 17 cits, a
month, and tho sum required to | pay
to the end of tho year may bu easily
calculated. If it is not possible tu obtain tho correct amount, send {2, and
the change will bo returned iu slumps
from thii office.
Shooting.—A shooting affray took

yesterday morning. A man by tho

more than waa safe of that ardent
spirit which exciteth rampageouaness,
and finally, when the liquor took effect,
they began disputing over some trivial
matter. Whilo the dispute waa atill
going on, without a word of warning
Beard is said to havo nulled out a revolver and find two allots at the cook,
neither of whioh, luckily, took effeot.
Beard was promptly arrested, and
will appear beforo the police magistrate this morning.—News.

New York, Mar. 22.—The IMune'a
Ottawa special says: Sir John Macdonald said last evening that no measure will bo introduced by tho government at the coming session of parliament looking to a reciprocal treaty
with tho United States. Ho did not
feel tliat Canada should humble itself
in the dust to beg of thc American or
any other people reciprocity. He woe
satisfied that such measure as that proposed by Congressman Butterworth,
would be a grand thing for tho manufacturers of tho United Statei but it
would ruin Canadian manufacturers.
