Under the presidency of Archdeacon Sinclair the clergy of the Archdeaconry of London are to meet at Sion College on Friday next to elect their proctor. to sit in Convocation as one of tbe representa - tires for tho dioceso of London. A similar meeting of the clergy of the Archdeaconry of Middlesex, under tha chairmanship of Archdeacon Thornton, will be held on the 29th inst. At the' former meeting the Rev.

The churchwardens' of East Brent write to ns with reference to Archdeacon Denison't jubilee : In the letter that appeared in your columns a short while ago attention was called to the permanent memorial to be erected in this parish 'to commemorate the above event. It was proposed that this memorial should take the form of the reitoration - of the. cross in the churchyard, the .base of which has been standing for some five centuries.. This scheme, together with a sketch of design, has been submitted to the Bishop of the diocese, and has met with his warmest approval. The Bishop has; also signified his intention of visiting the parish on Sunday, August 4, in connexion with the jubilee festivities, and also intends to officiate at the dedication of the memorial cross when completed We think these facts will be of interest to those who have subscribed or intend to subscribe to this memorial."

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, As one who contested a London seat last May, and, though not myself a candidate, took an active part in the late general election fight in the metropolis, I should like to say a few words as to the causes Of the defeat we Liberals have sustained in every portion of London. There can now be no doubt that the Liberal Government should have dissolved Parliament when the Lords threw. out the Irish Home Rule Bill. The resignation 'of Mr. Gladstone, the appointment of Lord Rosebery as Premier, the abortive attack on the House of Lords, rendered absurd by the appointment of a peer to be Premier and leader of the Liberal party, all combined to weaken us greatly in London consti tuencics. The contest in South Hackney last summer, and in Walworth last May, plainly showed, to all who could read the signs of. the times, impending disaster both GLOrCE5trjlSUinE. - Fini Inticts.

Sir, In your issue of July 19, Mr. Pcreira, Vicar and Rural Dean of j Croydon," rebukes Sir William Hareourt, in 'the 'style of an ecumenical council, for some expressions as to the lamentable alliance between the Church party and the drink party during the 'recent elections. Obviously. Sir William Hareourt. by the word "alliance," intended to imply no more than! that, when a popular vice has assumed the propor tions of a national sin. the community bearing - the honoured name of the National Church should boldly confront the vice regardless of possible consequences to itself, and when, trembling for its own temporalities, it deliberately lends its influence to the maintenance of a demoralizing traffic, it is virtually in alliance, with that traffic, though it 'may say with truth " Rien no nous re concilia commo nne haine tierce Mr. Pereira virtually accepts this position when he says, e who are on the winning side.' who ate tho" we " ? In this case the Established Church, and the monopoly which Mr. Chamberlain has called " the swollen tyranny," and which Lord Randolph Churchill called " tbe. devilish and destructive liquor traffic." Mr; Pereira lays :" It b a surprise to many to see tho) Church putting forth her great influence on any political question. . . . Let them henceforth clearly understand that . . . when we find one great political party proposing the disestablishment, of. the) Church . . . ' we deem it time to summon ourHpeopIe together," ic. True, it is a surprise For where has this " great influence on political qnes tions " been in the past ? 'When has it made itself felt m the great movements prompted by suffering, in equality, hardship in the long history of the slow evolution of the people's rights, their gradual emanci pation from disabilities and tyrannies ? Where was this "great influence " of .the National Church in the crusade against slavery, .in the abolition of the corn law, in the enfranchisement of the unrepresented ? What has been consistently the attitude of the clergy as a body and the - Bishops in the Heuse of Lords to all such questions ? And now Mr. Pereira warns us that this" " great influence "is only exercised in self - preservation ; that the prominent leaders of the Anglican branch of the Catholic Church, to whose nnroused consciences the open sores of national sms and the unredressed wrongs of sections of the community have perpetually appealed in vain,, are only to be lashed into a fever of enthusiasm when the position or the emoluments of their Church are threatened. If the " great influence " which is now TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, I rejoice to see from three different quarters protests appearing in The Timet of to - day against thai assumption that " local veto " is.alone responsible for the defeat of the late Government at .this election. In Sooth London the Chnrch party has worked independently of any political party ; many Liberal Churchmen, both clergy and laity .have preferred Church to party ; and working men have formed their owm bands of workers to put the case, of the Church before their fellow electors. In Croydon the. rural dean invited tbe two candidates to: state their views on the Church question before the largest public meeting of Churchmen ever held in that borough. In Battersea Town - ball, on July II, there was a publie meeting ef ever 1,000 Church people. Our opponents in the Walworth election of May stated that the action of the Church party was one of the principal causes of the defeat cf the anti - Church candidate. Ample evidence has been received from all parts of South London to show that the action of the Church party has been one' of the main causes ' of the altered majorities ; to use the words of one of the defeated candidates for Kennington.he had no idea the Chnrch narty would be so active."

I found a very general opinion among voters of all classes that trade was better and rates and taxes lower under a Tory Government than when Liberals were in. power. Many complained tnat tne Laberals had done nothing for London, while too mnch tuna was devoted to the wants of Ireland and. Wales, - and that measure such as (" taxation of ground values," of old - age pension," " one man one vote," had not been brought forward. These various causes combined led to the Liberal defeat in London, and, should they not' be removed before the next general election, we shall then bo again defeated iust .as badly. - A striking fact in tbe recent London elections is the defeat of nearly all tbe working - men candidates. Messrs. Cremer, Howell, Rowlands, and Keir Hardie have all been turned out ; Mr. Stcadman fought an utterly hopeless battle, and John Bums just escaped defeat. Evidently London workers do not care to bo re - presentsd in Parliament by one of their own class.

Sir, The laity of the Church of England would, I am. sure, deplore equally with the clergy any appearance) of an alliance between their Church and the drink traffic, and as the calumny that suggests such an alliance seems to be somewhat widely spread, whether in the - form of an electioneering address or symbolized in a political car toon, it is well that attention is being drawn to the matter. The fact that general elections are rarely fought on a single issue, and that, as your correspondents have pointed out, the present election is being' fought on at least four vital measures, has a tendency to obscure the motives of the different section engaged. The late Government propose, among other measures, alLocal Veto Bill and the disestablishment and disendawment of a section (at least) of the Church ; in opposing the latter measure the Church finds its forces in conjunction with those of the - opponents of the former Bill who have entered the arena in defeaea cf their own interests, and this fortuitous combination of forces is called, forsooth, an alliance between the Church and the drink traffic. In accusing the Church of forming this alliance Sir . William Harcourt's party obviously wish to appear as the - champions. par excellence of temperance, and in claiming this character they rely on their Local Veto Bill. 'Now, one must admit that the Church in voting against this party is necessarflyvoting against the Local Veto Bill, but one may at the" same time most emphatically deny that she is thereby favouring the drink traffic, for we may surely pay that in the present contest members of the Church of England, as such, have rightly voted, against the Local Veto Bill for one or other of the following reasons : 1. Because, although they believe that the BOd will' further the cause of temperance, they know that if they return its supporters, to power a measure of discs ta - blishment and disendowment will be passed which: they' believe will not only grievously impair the Charch's machinery but which is in itself an act of sacrilege, and as such cannot be countenanced at any price. 2. Because, although they believe that the Bill will further the cause of temperance, they bold that some) of its provisions wonld would affect most unjustly the interests of a section .of the', community with whom, it is true, they are not in sympathy, but whose claim ought in common fairness, to be considered; They therefore refuse to do evil that, good may cotne. . 3. Because, being of the opinion that "it is impossible to make men sober by - Act of Parliament." tbey believe that the Bill will not in reality farther th cause of temperance at all.

Sir, As in your leader of Friday you allude to my gyrations " on the drink question, and insert a letter from " A Woodbridge Elector " on which your remark is founded, may I ask in fairness for, space for a line in reply.? I have never swerved a hair's breadth at this election from the line which I took on the drink question when fighting the election of 192. Then and ever since I have contended for transferring the whole power of licensing from the magistrates to' the people in localities. . I do not believe lu veto except as a part of control. I want to see the people masters over days and hours of opening, over the quality of what is sold, and over the price. In" fact, I want them to have entire control. At the temperance meeting at which I presided at Felixstowe before the .election I stated these, to be my views, and . also that I did not agree with the resolutions passed. Notwithstanding this, all through the contest tbe words of one of tho resolution were songht to be fastened on me as my opinions by Unionist speakers who knew perfectly well that they did not embody my views. I do not wonder that the Woodbridge elector whose letter yon have inserted has withheld his name. Yours, &c, B. U. EVERETT. Rushmere, near Ipswich, July 20. THE UNIONIST MAJORITY, TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir, I hope the Conservative party will not be misled by the' result of the present elections. There has been no "conversion of electors from Liberal to Conservative opinions. Local veto. Home Role, Welsh disestablish ment. and the foolish agitation against the House of Lords have done, but little to swell tbe Conservative majority. Far more effect has been caused by the various measures of the labs Government, all of which have added to the burdens of producers, and have therehw d - creased by so much the demand for English labour. I allude to the increase in the income - tax, the death duties, the handicapping of our Indian trade by .the imposition of duties, and the costly legislative restrictions imposed upon manuiacinrers, rreatest clanee at similar nature since what w pay. term tbe period of cheas revival wiu wei interest, and this is afforded m the louowmg of genera, uvciw, . .hl, which sAbodita ti cbtti tsactos The Fatal Boiler Exflosiox at Ridcae.

Sir, In your leading article of to - day, m comment - ng on the Separatist gains in North Tyrone and Londonderry City, you state that it is alleged that the registration .in these two. constituencies has beea neglected. . ' Permit me to point out that you 'are unwittingly doing an injustice to myself,' as late member for North Tyrone, to Mr. John Ross, ex - member for Deny City, and to our respective registration agents. In England registration plays a comparatively subordinate part in electioneenng - aa compared with Ireland, and no Englishman can, I think, have any idea of the great labour and minute care .which have beea expended on the North Tyrone registration for the last three years. Some idea of the importance wliich'attaches to registration in Irish constituencies will be given when' I state that the Revision Courts in North Tyrone, with an electorate of some 6,000, sit for nearly three weeks annually, and that last year the Unionists lodged some 2,000 claims and objections. The Unionist defeat is to be attributed to a decision given by the Irish Court of Appeal in what is known as Simpson's case.: It was held in this decision that a rated occupier could not be held to be in exclusive possession of his holding unless he could produce the will under which the interest in the holding had been bequeathed to' him. For reasons I need not go into, wills are very seldom proved in country districts of .the North of Ireland, and an unproved will has no value as evidence. Owing to this cause large numbers of Unionist farmers have beea struck off the Tyrone register, and to this, and to no other cause whatever, is the Nationalist gain to bl attributed. Englishmen do cot realize that in Ireland, especially in Ulster, electoral victories, are won, not on the platform, but in the Revision Courts. la Bnglaod there exists nearly always" a large body of electors who caa be swayed either one way or the other by personal or ; other considerations. In Ulster it is not so. The two : great rival parties are permanently separated by clearly - 1 defined barriers that, .despite Imperial considerations or the persuasive eloquence of candidates, will remaia immovable to .the end. and. whilst some Unionists may exercise their individual judgment, the Nationalists will the ' vote solidly as ordered, and, whether their candidate be one ot the leaders oi their party, aa idiot oat of the asylum, cr a corner boy " from a country town. they - will flock with equal alacrity aad nxuLtumity to record their votes for him if directed to do so by their spiritual aansers. 1 nave the honour to be, Sir, tout obedient servant.
