BAPTIST AND CONGREGATIONAL MINISTERS THROW OVER THE ANTIBIBLE LEAGUE.
The Nationalist Schools Defenoa League is somewhat hasty in publishing the names of clerical supporters of its No Bible'in the. ebools programme, It has published to the world tbat Ctngregational ministers in Du-edin. viz., Messrs Asbford "and Wallace, were members of its executive, and it i 8 also mail 3 known that Baptist ministers like Messrs Jones and Dalston, of Dunedin, were also members of the Executive. It now turns out that these men have not the slightest sympathy with the "No Bible" in the syllabus pro gramme of the National SchoolsDefecoe and further, that instead of objecting to the refer endum, they arc in favour of the referendum. These men, over their own nameß have si gned a statement that they wish the Bible in the school Byllabus, and they favour a right of entry under the Nelson system, whioh means that they go three fourths of tbe way to tho Bible in State Schools League platform.
