The annu.d speech-day proceedings in connection with the Scotch College were presided1 over at the Athenumm yesterday b>7 His Excellency the Governor (Sir George. Sydonluin Clarke), who waa accom . panied by Lud}! Clarke.

The vice-regal patty ivas received with onthusiasfcie cheering, and the, principal 1 (Dr. Morrison), in a few words- of hearty

welcome, assured^ Ilia Excellency that the

Scotch College,, which had. ever been true mid loyal tq tlw throne, would always be so te the King'« representative. (Cheers.)

De-, Morrison, in his report, thanked the donors o£ special prizes, .mil, on ot the vowing, club, gratefully acknowledged the generosity; ol Air. Charles Ayrey, of W.irranooke, in presenting an eight-oared racing» boat to tile college. Twenty-tive . boys front-lihe college had« passed for. matri-

cula tion, gaining, seven places in ci-us lists, including- first cliiraes in classics, mathenia tics, physic<i,'iml ehöiuistrjV in uiathenu tie» the, college gained1 the first place and the exhibition, and two out of n total of* four íirüt olasses ia Latin and Greek. Jn

physics njid- chomiotty the college wu& equal iqr second, glace. In the ordinary examina- tions 27, passed in their respective years, gaining 28 places on. the honour list», 12 lirst classes, 10 sooond> six third, nine ex- hibitions,, and, a prox. access, la the final liononii examination in classics the college had. both (¡he first classes awarded, and the scholarship wa« gained by li C. Wilson, the dux of 1807. The college also gained first place in classics, mathematics, physics, -and chemistry at the entrance ex.imin.itioii

at-Ormond'College, and live exhibitions.1 In public school contests the college had woir the three matches already played, in cricket, was equal for first place in foot- ball, and second in rowing. The repprt closed with sympathetic reference to the death- of Lieutenant Stanley Reid, in South Africa, and' of Mr. 33. M'Leod, a former school captain.


His Excellency rose amid cheering and said:-"Eilte, in the person of you, sir (ad- dressing, the principal), hws decreed that the first duty Lady Clarke and I are called upon to perform iu Victoria is that of presenting the prizes of the Scotch College, one of the four grout public schools of this great state. (Applause.) I' ian assure you that it giyes ? us the greatest pleasure to come amongst

you to-day, and give away those prizes. We most heartily reciprocate the kind words Dr. "Morrison said in welcoming us here. We luive felt most deeply the cordial wel come we have, received from everyone hi "Melbourne since Tuesday, te han sunk deeply in our hflirts, ami it will be a memory wo shall never forgot. (Applause.) I know that there is no more loyal people in this world than the Scotch people, ami no more loyal state than the ftale ot Vic- toria. (Cheers.) 1 have not, unfortunately, the honour of being a Scotchman, but'I yield to no marr in admiration of those fine qualities the Scotch people have shown all the world over. I believe these qualities, if not derived-, have been, .it any rate, fos- tered by the principles of the grand educa- tional system of Scotland. These princi- ples, transplanted across the world, have found now sphere of activity in this greai southern continent. I know that thii col- lege does not work on purely denomina- tional linos, and throws open its benefits to al! comers, but its inspiration is, in a gteat measure, drawn from little far-away country of heather and mountain which ha'-, given so many gallant sons to the empire. (Cheers.) 1 have not yet had time to study your curriculum, but one can soo from the report how wide and broad ¡J. its. Anil the rcport tolls more than that. It speakt. elo- quently of the success ol the great work the Scotch College is doing in Victoria. In these'days everything is subjected to test and analysis, and the test ol' tho work of . this college is the success gained at the l*ni

versity and other outside institutions. These successes, which speak for them- selves, seem to mc to be phenomenal, .mJ I think they point, not only lo the good work of the teachers, but to the capacity and industry of the students. I don't agree with I>r. Morrison when he hinted that this record year would never be repeated. I believe that what the college has done once it will bo able to do a second time, and 1 hope, on some future occasion, to be able to congratulate you on a success .1» as the present repot t discloses. 1 do no: think any words of mine could be as elo- quent as tho bore facts, which that report narrates, but t should like to say a few words, especially to you boys. A very great soldier, Von "Moltkc, said iu the Reichstag that the schoolmaster had helped to bring about the riotocicM of Prussia, «nd -thcro, was a very great deal of truth in the re- mark. Good schools produce good citizens,

and a nation of good citizens is strong alike in war and peace. I believe that Vic- toria, in the schools which she is spreading broadcast through her land., is establishing n great reserve of strength of .ilj kinds. Dr. "Morrison said that this college had taken the lead in establishing drill as a compul- sory subject, and I wa» glad lo hear tlul sentiment cheered by you boys. No man lutes war more than 1 do, but I hold it is the duty of every man to prepare himself to defend hw honour and his rights if tlu> nocessitv should arise. (Cheers.) I believe this duty can bo inculcated in our youth, mid that the training can be begun in our schools. Looking through the lines of the cadets, willi, their bright faces and -.mart uniforms, on Tuesday, I could not help realising that A'ii'torKi recognises the need of teaching l>cr youth the profession of war. (Cheers.) And now, hoys, just a yen* fow last word.-. We live in days in winch there is a good deal ol' apathy about -onie things and a great deal of shallowncss about others. I beg you to be in earnest in all vou undertake, and thorough, whether in vow work or sports. Remember, yon will have to take part in moulding the destinies of the greatest empire in the world. In- to fit yourselves to play part nobly. (Applause.) Cherish honour und truth nbove- all things. Maintain the highest (.tandara and sense of duty, and then you will grow up to be good citizens of the state of Victoria, and of that greater empire to which we are all so proud to belong. (Great cheering.)

After the prize distribution the Key. Dr. Marshall moved II vote of thanks to His hx ccllcncv and Lady Clarke for their píe- seme. The motion was seconded by Colonel Tom Price, and acknowledged by, His hx

tV'llis excellency then presented the fol
