privileged for I object1 to the line of separation wherever it is But it is conceivable that a change in the terms of might win over other and si weaken my hope of religious equality on the other by forcing a new olasj into Hence every thing that bears on the working of this Act of Uniformity affects the arid not a private affair of those who call themselves JNE that the worship of Albanu has been so far changed that Reserva tion is and the Mass is beinj said on the lines of the Romish distinct categorical statement which it is well to article pro ceeds There is much in Father Stantond touching appeal in the Times for Charity above This is nothing but sheer sentimental Where is the call for charity Stanton Etill remains a clergyman in a Church in which Tie enjoys a certain status

held that the Ritualist controversy was one for the Church of England to the people retaining the ultimate right to say whether a Church which settles down on one line or the other shall continue to represent them as an So says the Chronicle in the first paragraph of a leaderette in which it expresses a certain amount of sympathy for Father Stantdh in his stand It would have been more interesting and instructive if the Chronicle had under taken to define the difference between the Church of England and the people of The writer evidently proceeda on the assumption that there is some ecclesiastical to be supposed with a definit 3 organisation of its which may be describad as the Church of and which ought to be left to manage its own The idea is not an uncommon but a single question may suffice to expose the fallacy wbioh lurks in this plausible Ask for a definition of the and it ft will soon be apparent how untenable the position The people of England are the Church of England as by law and any attempt to make a distinction between the two is sure to lead to a from which extrication will not be I do not say this because I desire to interfere in the domestic affairs

been manipu lated by priestly hand and consecrated by a priests BUT now for the kindly sentiment shown to Father After admitting SUCH a plea for placing charity above for indulgence to a positive defi ance of a voluntary suggests the need for a new definition of the word which is as much abused as any word in the English In Father StantonV case the abuse is sjmply But even in ordinary contra versy too much is continually sacrificed at the shrine of socalled In relation to we have simply to obey the Lords Judge not that ye be not and we shall be saved from all As it there is often too much
