BISHOP'S LENGTHY LETTER.
LONDON, February 16. The Bishop of Zanzibar, in a twocolumn letter tb the Archbishop of Canterbury, explains his reasons for dissent from the Primate's, decision with reference to the Kikuyu controversy. He argues that the formal charges were intended to be submitted |to the Primate officially only if, after full inquiry, the Bishops of Uganda and Mombassa refused to accept, the Church's judgment. He concludes, by pleading for a definite Settlement,, of. the controversy. , The letter declares that a consultative body of bishops is likely to be regarded as a prejudiced committee of inquiry. Some of the members represent bishops who already have accepted a policy akin to that at Kikuyu. The Primate, who already has prejudged! the case jn his answer, will be, as chairman, both judge and foreman of the jury. > ,
