Viscount Dunlo, whose name was men tioned in the cablegrams on Tuesday, is the eldest son of the Earl of Clancarty. He is not yet twenty-one years of age, having been born on December 29, 1868. His uncle, the Hon. Frederick Le-Poer-French, served in the New Zealand war as captain of the 40th Regiment, was A.D.C. to General Carey, and was mentioned in despatches. The MiBS Bilton who has been "raised to the peerage " is probably one of the Sisters Bilton (Flo and Belle), "song and music hall dance artists," and not by any means the highest class in their profession. For the last few months they have been performing at the London Pavilion and the Royal Music Hall. The character of their performance may be judged from that of their principal song, which the ' Era' stigmatises as "sultry."
