THE POLITICAL SITUATION. THE NEXT SESSION OF PARLIA MENT. !Afc the present time Parliament stands pro rogued till the middle of next month'. / Nothing has jet been definitely heard as J to whether it is intended ; it shall then i meet for despatch of business, or whether a further prorogation is to take place. In . some quarters there seems to be an idea that i the two Chambers will be found sitting ' before the end of the present financial year. This view does not meet with general accep tation, as there is a disposition in others to believe that the coming session ca; not very well commence before some time in July. It is said that, if for no other reason, the draft ing of the legislation which is to occupy the attention of Parliament is not jet in a suffi ciently forward state to admit of Parliament meeting before the end of the first half of 1902, and, in fact, that for this and other reasons it will probably be found the session will not open before July at the earliest.
