Winnipeg, July have been very much struck by the grotesque competition of denominations, al struggling and none being successful On purely practical grounds some rea sonable arrangement between the Pro- testant deonnrinations "seems to be urgently called for." Thus was the situation summed up this morning by Eev. Canon Hen- son of Westminster Abbey, who has just made a three months' tour of the United States and is now visiting his brother here. Eev, Canon Hen- son is one of .-the able Divines of the old land and in addition to be- ing a canon of Westminster, he is also rector of St. Margaret's the- 'Par- ish Church of -the British House of Commons. Holding such a position he is necessarily on the cross benches and has a splendid opportunity of watching the trend of p3litical affairs at the seat oi the Empire. On Wednesday next the Rev. vis- itor will address the Canadian Club on "A Cross Bench View of Imperial Defence." 56 new elevators have been built im Saskatchewan this year. Rev. .7. C.
