Opening of the Session. THE Seventh Session of the present Parliament was opened on Tuesday, Jan. 30th, when a message from Her Majesty the Queen was read in the House of Lords by the Lord Chancellor, acting as one of Her Majesty’s commissioners. In this message Her Majesty spoke of the heroism shown by her soldiers and sailors in South Africa, and expressed her regret that so many valuable lives should have been sacrificed, and said, " I am confident that I shall not look to them in vain when I exhort them to sustain and renew their exertions until they have brought this struggle for the maintenance of the empire and the assertion of its supremacy in South Africa to a victorious conclusion." With regard to India Her Majesty said, " regret that owing to insufficient rainfall in the autumn over a great part of Western and Central India, the harvests and pasturage have failed to such an extent as to create a famine. Timely measures have been takeu by my Government and by the rulers af the Native States affected to relieve suffering and to prevent starva- tion. I regret to add that the epidemic of plague continues and that although its severity has not increased since last year there is at present no prospect of its diminution." The references in the message to intended legislation were not numerous nor were they of very great importance. Mention was made of Bills to amend the law of lunacy, factory legislation, the Housing of the Working Classes Act and the Companies Acts, and to lessen the number of accidents among railway servants. The Bill for the Amend- ment of the Companies’ Acts will, in all probability, contain a pro- vision with reference to companies carrying on medical practice. There was no mention in the message of any Bill to amend the Medical Acts, but it does not follow that such a measure will not be introduced by the Government in the course of the session. The London Water Question. The final report of the Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the subject of the water-supply within the limits of the metropolitan water companies has been laid on the table of Parliament. Special Rules for Chemical Works and Match Factories. The Secretary of State has prepared two new sets of special rules - one in regard to the employment of persons in chemical works in which is carried on the manufacture of bichromate or chromate of potassium or - .odium, and the other in regard to the employment of persons in lucifer match factories in which white or yellow phosphorus is used.
