BICENTENARY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN CANADA BY J. MILLER McCQNNlELL. COPYRIGHT 1910 BY PUBLISHERS PRESS. The Bicentenary celebration of the first church of England service in Can- ada which, took place at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, in 1710, commences at Halifax Sept 3. That section, forming at the time part of the French pos- sessions ia 'North America, then en- tered upon its regime as a part of{ Great Britain's possessions, and as j an act of gratitude to the Almighty j for the surrender of the French com- mander the British soldiers held oi- scotland, the Earl of Heath, Archdea- con Madden, General Sir Charles War- ren and Sir Dyce Duckworth. Among the most prominent Amer- icans will be the Bishop of Washing- ton, the Bishop of Massachusetts, the Bishop of Tennessee, the Bisnop of Vermont, the Bishop of Kentucky, and Rev. Dr. Worchester, famous as the founder of the Emmanuel Movement in the United States. The celebration proper will com- mence with the formal opening of the new "All Saints" Cathedral in Halifax on Sept 3, wnich promises to be the most magnificent in the history of the Anglican Church ever held in Canada. Tie first three days of the following week will fee given up to the Canadian Church Con- gress. All the historical and other learned societies are taking an interest in tie" event and will participate in the pro- ceedings. Incidental to tie gathering there will be a special convocation in the crude French fortress, -built in stockade style more for safety from Indian attack than assault from for- eign foe. There have 'been many such in the annals of British warfare in all parts of the globe but probably none more interesting than this. Nec- essarily it partook entirely of a mil- itary character as there were no Eng- lish settlers at Port Royal in those days. It was quite a while afterwards before the English commenced to set- tle -there. In 1713, when the treaty of Utrecht was drawn up most of the inhabitants were French Roman Catholics while REV. DR. DAVIDSON LORD ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY vine service, conducted -by the chap- lain of the forces. It is this service which is to he fittingly celebrated, by the 'high -dignitaries and laymen of. the clmrclL Port Royal, as the French of that day called the place, was surrendered to the British in the year mentioned the commander 'being CoL Nicholson.

As there is no record of the es- tablishment of any mission of the church of England in Nova Scotia, or Acadia as it was known then, from 1713 to 1749, it will he seen that wiile the bicentennial ceremony correctly marks an important incident in the history of that religious 'body, the real work of the Church did not com- mence for some years later. Services were occasionally held by military chaplains stationed at Annapolis for the few English settlers there and tie only evidence of-the existence V of the church during that period was -the vance of this bicentenary event have j glican churcies throughout Canada been going on for months and are to correspond with the date of the planned on a most elaborate scale. There is no doubt it will be the most striking event on record in connection the Church of England in Can- ada, High dignitaries of the church from England, Scotland and tie Unit- ed States, as well as from all over ceremony in Nova Scotia. There couid be no more "beautiful place for a great gathering in the latter part of August and the begin- ning of September than Nova Scotia.

Dr. Inglis was consecrat- ed at Lambeth In 1787. His arrival was a matter of great satisfaction to the clergy and people. Bishop Inglis was the son of the Rev.

Rev. Dr. Stanser was the second Bishop but he officiated only for a short time and 'the post afterwards went to Rev. John Inglis, tie first Bishop's son. He was consecrated in 1825. He worked successfully and died in London ia 1850 at the age of 72. Rev. Herbert Binney, born at Syd- ney, C. B., was the fourth Bishop of Nova Scotia. He died suddenly in 1SS7 and was the last Bishop ap- pointed toy the Crown to the See of 'Nova Scotia. Rev.

The new Bishop struggled manfully with the extensive duties of iis large Diocese. One of his first cares was the establishment of a seat of learn- ing and a school and college were es- tablished at Windsor called King's Col- lege, still in a flourishing condition. The history of this institution is largely the history of the church in Nova Scotia. In 1793 the unwieldy Diocese was divided by the appointment of Rev. r REV. DR.
