Wellington, Juiy 9. Addressing the Anglican Synod here, Oanon Garland considered it extraordinary that opponents of the Rible-in-Sohools League had not pro duced any definite evidence from Australia He learnt they bad written there for evidence against the working of system, but he would certainly be surprised to learn they had published all replies received. He quoted - the extraordinary leaflet issued, by his opponents, claim* ing to have, proved definitely, that an official circular hadjjbeen Hsued by Mr Wilkin, Secretary Education Council, New South Wales Education Department on July, 1900, against ministers proselytising in schools. He bad cabled to the present Direoror of Education of that State, receiving a reply datedMuly 9th: "Mr Wilkins retired in 1884 and died in 1892, so could not therefore have issued tbe circular referred to by you, whioh cannot be identified by the Board—Director of Educaion, Sydney, N. 8. W." Laughter and ap # plftupe greeted this exposure. Tbe Synod affirmed the Referendum BiH by 100 votes against 2, 46 out of 47 laity supporting it.
