The Rev. P. L. Larkins presided. The Rev. A- W. Webb said ho favored the New South Wales system, or the alternative Irish National School system. He urged that an arrangment be come to with the Roman Catholics, if possible, as to.flesßons in schools, similar to those drawn up by. the late Archbishop Whately and the Roman Catholic Archbishop Murray. .The Rev.
