From the Archives: Mr. S.N. Banerjee at the Law College.

At a meeting at the Law College, Madras, which was intended for the benefit of the students of the College and which was not open to the Press, the Hon'ble Mr. T. Rangachariar delivered a lecture last evening [Jan. 21] on the Montagu-Chelmsford Reform Scheme. The Hon’ble Mr. Surendranath Banerjee presided. In the course of his concluding remarks as Chairman Mr. Banerjee said that the road to responsible government was laid out in the scheme in clear and strong outlines. They had only to prove their capacity at every stage of development before proceeding to the next stage. There had been a profound change in the angle of vision of their rulers. The colour barrier had been removed. The appointment of Sir S.P. Sinha as Under-Secretary in the India Office was an instance.
