THE list of Birthday Honours was published on Friday last, but, as usual, men of science do not figure largely in it. Among the new Privy Councillors we notice the name of Sir William Mather, who has done much to promote technical education. The honour of Knighthood has been conferred upon Mr. H. Hall, His Majesty's Inspector of Mines for the Liverpool and North Wales district, and Dr. A. Hopkinson, Vice-Chancellor and principal of the Victoria University of Manchester. Colonel F. B. Longe, Surveyor-General of India, and Dr. R. T. Glazebrook, F.R.S., become Companions of the Bath (C.B.). Mr. J. H. Marshall, director-general of archæology in India, Mr. C. Michie Smith, director of the Kodaikanal and Madras Observatories, and Dr. M. Aurel Stein, superintendent of the Archæological Survey, Eastern Circle, are appointed Commanders of the Indian Empire (C.I.E.). The order of C.M.G. has been conferred upon Dr. A. D. P. Hodges, principal medical officer of the Uganda Protectorate, in recognition of his services in the suppression of sleeping sickness, and Prof. T. W. Edgeworth David, F.R.S., of the University of Sydney. Mr. C. O. Water-house, of the British Museum (Natural History), has been appointed a Companion of the Imperial Service Order.
