Chinese Discrimination: 0050.0511

            A gentleman well known at THE ECONOMIST office, pledges his honor that he heard a Chinaman singing “Loch Lamond” the other evening.  It has long been known that the Chinese have a musical instrument that gives forth sound suspiciously like the bagpipes, but until now it was never suspected that the compatriots of Confucius had also borrowed liberally from the Jacobite songs of the Scot.  John Gibson, the historian of the Scotch society should investigate this problem without unnecessary delay.
