TRIBUTEs. To His MEMORY. 295 student of the Hindu scriptures. He was a man of wide sympathics himself. His own social views, I believe, were strictly orthodox, and he was naturally a keen supporter of the scheme for the Hindu University in Beneras. All these activities are examples of the tremendous and abiding interest which he took in educational matters. He was one of those men to whom his country owes a deep debt of gratitude, and it is right and proper, therefore that his fellow countrymen, who mourn his loss, should take such steps as are appropriate parmanently to mark their appreciation of his life and his cxample. I will now call upon the Hon’ble the Vice-Chanccellor to move a resolution. The Hon ble the Vice-Chancellor:-This is a special meeting of the Scinate called at the request of many influential members of the Senate, and, as you are all aware, it is for thc purpose of placing on record our deep sense of the loss sustained by the niversity by the death of Sir Gooroo I)ass Banerjee, and to consider what steps should be taken to perpetuate his memory. The resolution which I have the honour to propose is as follows:- "That thc Senate place on record its deep sense of the great loss which the University has sustained through the death of Sir Gooroo Dass Banerjee, who was a Fellow of the University for 40 years and Vicc-Chancellor for three years from 1890 to 1892.' It was suggested that His Excellency the · Viceroy should be invited to preside at this meeting. His Excellency, owing to his numerous engagements, was not able to accede to our request, but he intimated that the proposal had his warmest support.
