London, Jaootry 23. The Marquis of Ripon presided at * banquet given by the National Club to Dadabhai Naoroji, and m proposing the toast of the guest said that Lord Salisbury's dictum that because a man was not born m England he was unfit to hold a seat m the House of Commons, was repudiated everywhere, for himself, he said he hoped Australia, India, and Canada would yet be represented m the British House of Commons. Dadabhai Naoroji, replying, said his fellow-countrymen m India were determined to obtain a measure of self-rule, and that the establishment of the India Congress three years ago marked an epoch m their national history.
