The name of Burin. There is none
more dear or more inspiring to the true
son of Scotia than that of the gifted
bard of Ayr, who first saw the light of
day amid the tugged Ayrshire hill 188
years ago. Last night the sturdy sons
of Scotland of this city, who are bound
together as the Scratiton Caledonian
club, gathered at the Wyoming to cel
ebrate the birth of "r u greatest poet
that ever sprang fiotu le bosom of the
paoplt, and lived an t died iu an linin
Tno Caledonians invited n numborof
their friend to participate in the fes
tivites, and by all the name of Robert
Bums, the inspired "poet of humanity''
was fitly toasted and honored.
Burns is the triiusc-nde;it literary
genius of Scotland. He possessed the
highest literary tiuailitie, combining
the easiest negligence of stylo and the
highest finish. Exquisite tenderness
and humor that is ut once broad, re
filled ami delicate permoate his writ
ings He had a tine preception of
natural beaut and an exalted ideal of
patriotism, as is manifested in some of
the bursts of patriotism iu bis poel&l
of a heroic strain.

TBE SPEECH MAKING
Before the speech making began
Mis Julia Allen rendered a medley of
Scotch airs on the piano. Brief but
eloquent introductory remarks were
made by the chief of the club, James
B. Skeoch, following which the Cale
dor.ian Oiee party sung Barns' song
"There Was a Lad Was Born in Kyle,"
with splendid effect.
Captain James Moir was introduced
as toss' muster of the evening by Mr
skeosli and was given a hearty wel-
corns, in accepting tne duties or nis
oftice the toast master paid a tribute to
i the genius of Mr. Burns, aud then
called upon Colonel F. J. Fttzstmmons
to respond to the toast "Tho Memory
of Burns." The. eloquent colonel evoked
i a storm of applause. He spoke as fol
Mr. Chairman, Ladiasand Gentlemen
The custom of annually assembling in so
cial ommunion and by song and speech
commemorate the memory of some en
nubiing .ndividual whose life made man
kind happier, is Indeed b"autlful and com
mendable. Every nation has its hero
which it delights to honor. Tonight we
meet to pay tribute to one who touched
the heart strings of the human family by
putting in undvitig verse the choicest and
sweetest sentiments that the mind of mnu
has ever conceived. Iu undertaking to add
a (lower to the wreuth which humanity
has woven around the inspiring name of
Bobby Burns. I will be brief. I will not
attempt to analyze his poetic productions,
nor consider his place In the world of lit
erature. Timo has placed the seal of Im
mortality upan his mitclile-s stanzas and
assigned him a distinguished place among
the children of the Muse. He was greater
than bnrd and mose than poet. His fame
does not alone resiupon being the great
est lyric writer of any age or clime. True
he won his sudden popularity and musical
distinction as the author of the most soul
stirring lines that gonitis has given to an
appreciative universe. Yet his most ex
quisite song hut feebly reflected tho mug
namity or his noble nature. The bard of
Avon and the hard of Ayr belonged to
what was trrinod the common people-the
peasantry and neither ever denied his an
cestry or fell victims to the emiles of
royalty. The one glorified him who would
not "bend the pregnant hinges of the
knee that thrift might follow fawning,"
and the other re-rchoea the seotimeut
when he said "a man's a mau for n that."
H was endowed with comprehensive
and liberal views. Probably In advance
of his environments. He loved his fellow
man and all of Clou's creatures, even to a
lowly mottse. He cultivated an apprecia
tion of what he found true and etneere.
fie extended the same consideration to the
man of intelligence and honesty, wheu he
found him clothed in homespun, as to him
wno was bedecked with the Bneriesof roy
alty. He was proof against education.
His nudden fame and the regal recep ious
tendered him wheu b-- first visited EUn.
bnrgn did not disturb him or
vanity. Tho great mastersof thought and
celebreties of education, who then
dorned the famous and historic university
met him only to be charm nl by his wealth
of knowledge and edifl td by his marvelous
conversation. What a i;rand tribute to
gemusf Robertson, the dl-tiuguished his.
loiitnt Biair, the finished rhetoricians
Stewart, the f am. us author of Moral
Philosophy; Dr. Adam Sunt!', the re
Downed political economist; Erskin, the
U eaiest advocate ot his generation, and
others scarcely less eminent, nil doing
h. iiigo to tho son of a bumble farmer,
himself a ploughmau. With all these
attentions ha remained plain Bobhy
He sympathized with the oppressed of
every laud and nbhored a government
that circumscribed the rights of the In
dividual. We tlad him approving those
who rebelled agaiust imperial rule is
France, and again proposlug a toast to
Washington when the sentiment offered
was William Pitt.
FULL OF AFFECTIONS.
No one ever had a more nfl'nctionate
heart. It was enduring aud comtant. The
annals of courtship; the history of affec
tion; or the archives of sentiment do not
record a more touohing incident than his
sad parting with the stucere hearted
Argylelas- -Highland Mary. His tribute to
the memory of Lord Qleucalrn the onlv
member of the Scottish peerage whoever
befriended bim is unsurpassed in beauty
of thought and tenderness of expression.
His kneeling and kissing the sod over the
grave pi his charming predecessor in song

tion for gretnes- by Cicero's visit to tho

What was good iu Scotia's favorite son
bus made the World better. His sons
bave brought cheer to the people of every
clime. They have been by the children of
the Nile; they have been warbled aloug
the beautiful blue Danube; they have been
heard iu the huts of the majestic St. Law
rence. Everywhere under the broad
dome of heaven where the beacon light ot
civilization shines, tho melodies of Burns
have driven away sorrow. May they con
tiuue to be sung until the dnrk clouds of
sectarianism breaks the buuilgbt of liber
ality pourmg through mage the people of
the whole earth
"Shall bo brothers for a' that."
A TOAST TO UHOVEK.
Mis Wallace Kennedy sang "Caller
On" in tine voice, and Senator M. 12
McDjnald was asked to respond to the
toast, "The President of the United
Stales." He said that when wo honor
the president we hut honor ourselves,
for it is the people In the exercise of
their sovereign power who make and uu
make presidents, Robert U inkin sang
"The Star Spangled Banner," and then
John Poacocl; spoke about "Scotland,
the L ml of Our Birth." There is no
sentiment that uppeals so strongly to
Scotchmen, he said,, as patriotism,
.and when a Scotchman says he is proud
of his noble country, everybody must
admit that he has something to be
proud of. It is not everyone who can
boast of having a couutry that was
"Scots' wha Hs,e," the national song
of Scotland, was sung by the Ciledonian
Clue party. The next speaker intro
duced by the toastnuster was William
T. Smith, who was aske 1 to siy soms

He said that if be is not eligible at a
member of the Culedoaiau club he
could at least join paying tribute to
that sweet singer, the post of the com
mon people Robert Burns. Taming
to a consideration of this conntry Mr.
Smith said It is possible that God might
crate abetter country than the United
States, but he was thoroughly eon
vinced he never did. The government
is the best that tho hum iu mind has
devised. Locally, the sons of Scotland
have done a wonderful work and havi
made their impresr on public affrirs
In closing the speaker p it I n tributo to
the worth of James Archbald, sr., who
was born in the village where Burns
first saw the light of the day; Thomas
Dickson, George Dickson,- James Dick
