Mr. Tilak.


THUS a message from Bombay:--“A Bombay Government order in the Judicial Department, dated the 15th October says that the Governor of Bombay in Council is pleased to withdraw the order dated 31st Jan, 1918, served on Mr. Bal Gangadhar Tilak under rule 3 of the Defence of India (Consolidated rules, 1915.” The order, it will be remembered, was one prohibiting Mr. Tilak from public speaking in the Bombay Presidency. While congratulating the Bombay Government on this belated act of justice, we may be permitted to express the hope that this decision as well as the cancellation of the Punjab Government’s order against Mr. Gandhi mark the initiation of a new policy in India.
