n PUSCH" AND THE GOVERNMENT.—In con- nection with the knighthood just coti Cd I..1 upon Owen Seaman, Editor of 44 Punch," it, lIS. interesting to recall that this is the fifth honour of the kind granted to those idontified wii-li "Punch" by Governments of both political parties. The earlier honours were the* baronetcy conferred on the late chairmau of the proprietors, William Agnew, and the knight- hoods given to John Tenniel (for 50 years Chief Cartoonist, and now in his 94th year), F O Burnand (Editor 1880-1904), and Henry W Lucy (" Toby, M.P. "). Punch" has received. in fact, in these four knighthoods and baronet- age more distinction from the Governments uf the last 20 years than has been vouchsafed to any other newspaper or magazine at any period. Sir Owen Seaman commenced to contribute to Punch" in 1894, becoming Editor of the paper ten years later on the retirement of Sir Francis Burnand.
