News of the Week

Their Majesties in Scotland THE visit of the King and Queen to Scotland has been a great success. That the Court should move to the Palace of Holyroodhouse for a week in the year was an admirable idea, and it seemed likely to be an annual event until the King's illness broke the sequence, to the grief of Scotland. On Friday, July 10th, the King accompanied by the Queen spent a day visiting " the second city of my Empire," and steamed down the Clyde tp Shieldhall to open the new Dock which, on the petition of the Clyde Navigation Trustees, he allows to be named the King George V Dock. We venture to add to the congratulations happily expressed by the King our own congratulations to the Trustees on the unconquerable Scottish spirit which, in days such as these, continues to provide on a grand scale fot hicreased trade froth the Clyde to the world overseas.
