the Royal Engineer* there, it can

The honors comprise the chief

120.1*00 acres, situated for th?- most

rastle of Toltalloch. The clan lias

the dawn of Scottish history.

county of Suffolk. The Malcolms
played a very great role In British
history, and one of them. Gen. 8ir
John Malcolm, who won fame as a
commander in v/ar and as a special
ambassdor to Persia, was ultimate
ly accorded the honor of a state
funeral In Westminster Abbey,
where a splendid monument com
memorates his name.
The official announcement that Sir
lan had obtalr.ed the stewardship of
the Chiltcm Hundreds and had been
in consequence thereof obliged to re
sign his seat in parliament for Croy
don. which he had held for the last
ten years, requires a little ex planar
tion. Strictly speaking. a member of
parliament cannot resign or throw up
his job.
According to the law. the only way
in which he can escape from Its ob
ligations is by accepting an "office of
profit and emolument" in the service
of the crown. There is some question
as to whether the chief British direc
torship of the Suez Canal can be in
cluded under this head, so Sir lan
applied to the crown for the office of
steward of the honor of the Chiltern
Hundreds, which carries with it a
salary of about $5 a year and is only
kept up for the purpose of enabling
members of parliament to rapidly dis
qualify themselves.
At the time lan Malcolm was
knighted a Tew months ago. the
Marquise do Fontenoy wrote the
following interesting article:
"All these who recall the tall and
stalwart Ian Malcolm, conservative
member of Parliament for the
Croydon division of London,' who
accompanied Arthur Balfour on the
occasion of his special mission to
the United States In 1917 and who
ha* again been acting as that
statesman's private secretary at the
Peace Conference at Paris, will be
glad to know that he has Just re
ceived from King George the star
of a knight commander of the Or
der of St. Michael and St. George,
which gives* him a handle to his
name. From now on he will be Sir
Ian Malcolm, and his wife. Jeanne,
the only child of Lady de Bathe
iLily Langtry). becomes Lady Mal
"Sir Ian. who received in 1916 from
Nicholas II the honorary rank of ma
jor general In the Muscovite army in
recognition of his Red Cross work In
Russia during the first two years of
the war. is a native of Quebec, hav
ing been born there while his father
was stationed there as the command
ing officer of royal engineers. It is.
however, from his father's brother,
the late 6-foot f Lord Malcolm, of
Poitalloch. married to the widowed
Mrs. H. Gardner Lister, of New York,
that he has inherited the chieftaincy
of the clan of Malcolm, as well as
the great landed possessions connect
ed therewith, including the castle of
Poitalloch. The property, extending
over an area of some 30.000 acres, is
situated in Argyllshire. In fact,
north of the Tweed Ian Malcolm is
known either as ?'Poitalloch" or else
as "The MacCallum "
"The clan has been established In
Argyllshire since the dawn of Scot
| tish history, and was flourishing in
the reign of David II and Robert II,
as shown by contemporary official
record* still In existence. A junior
branch of the house has a baronetcy.

"This did not prevent the emperor

the coronation festivities "
Here is a bit of gossip of interest
her" from "Choliy Knickerbocker's"
pen. written from New York.
"The Edson Bradleys gave a de
lightful dinner party last evening
at their apartment. No. 998 Fifth
avenue, in honor of the Belgian
Ambassador and the Baroness E.
Cartier de Marehienne. and it K"es
without saying tne guests were
culled from a very, very swagger
"1 know of no more charming a
hostess than Mrs. Bradley, nnd
when I learned at her dinner party
last evening that she will be In our
midst throughout the entire season.
I was indeed delighted. Metropoli
tan Society is badly in need of a
number of hostesses like Mrs.
Bradley?hostesses who give 'dif
ferent' entertainments.
"In former years Mrs. llradley has
divided her time between her pala
tial residence in Washington and
her apartment in this city. This
winter she has decided not to oc
cupy the Washington house, which,
on dit, has one of the most gor
geous ballrooms it has ever been
my good fortune to see. and will
remain In the metropolis.
"Mrs Bradley, as you all know,
is Julie Shipman's (Mrs. Herbert
Shipmani mother, and Julie is de
lighted that Mrs. Bradley will be so
near her. Later in the season Mrs.
Shipman will be the guest of honor
at several parties which her pa
' rents will give.
To return to last evening's dinner
party, it was a triumph for the
Baroness. In fact, her whole life
these days seems to be one long
triumph. There was a time, when
she was Mrs. Hamilton Wilkes Carey,
and before that Mrs. Frost, that so
ciety adopted a rather "offish" atti
tude toward the beautiful matron who
now bears a title and rs one of tne
most important personages In the
diplomatic world at Washington.
At the reception which Mrs.
"Neely" Vanderbilt gave several
weeks ago tn honor of Her Majesty,
! the Queen of the Belgians, many
social leaders who formerly over
looked the baroness were forced to
grovel befare her. so to speak.
Let it be said to the Baroness's
credit that her triumph over the
snobbish New York-Newport set has
not ?hanged her one iota. She is Just
as unaffected today as when she was
living quietly at Newport and not
attempting, as the tabbies said, "to
scale the social barriers" at the Rhode
Island watering place. Mrs. Bradle>'s
dinner party was the beginning of a
series of such events which will le
given by New York hostesses in honor
of the baroness.
The baroness has certainly attained
the ape* of the "social ladder.?
