From the Archives (from the issue of October 2, there having been no issue on October 3, 1919): Moderate Deputation.

Bombay, October 1. — Among the passengers who arrived in Bombay [October 1] to-day by S.S. “Neuralia” were the Hon’ble Mr. Surendranath Bannerjea, President, & Mr. K.C. Roy, member of the Moderate Deputation, & Mr. C.P. Ramaswami Iyer of the Home Rule League Deputation which had proceeded to England in connection with reforms.

An “Associated Press” representative asked Mr. Bannerjea what his impressions were about the work of the Moderate party and prospects of the Reform Bill now before Parliament. Mr. Bannerjea said in reply, speaking for the Moderate party he had no hesitation in saying that they, including every member of the party, did their best in helping forward the objects of the delegation according to their rights and their opportunities. They had a very busy time of it and speaking for himself he might say he never worked harder as he had in addition to the work of the committee to serve on another committee to which he had been appointed by the Secretary of State to study institutions of local self-government with a view to their applicability to Indian conditions and he had to submit a separate report for the consideration of the Government.
