I Wellington, Ocb. 29 The organising secretary of the Bible in State Schools League has juat come through an ordeal of crossexamination which few men would care to face unless backed by a thoroughly sound case. Following his evidence before the Education Oom mittee of the House of Eepresentative?, he had to stand the most severe critical examination by Bishop Cleary, Mr John Caughley, and Professr Hunter, their questions keeping tbe witnesses and committee occupied for four days of lengthy sittings. Tbe official stenographer gave up with exhaustion on one occasion, but Canon Garland kept on so long as bis oppon ents were ready with a question, full latitude being allowed by the Committee. Despite this severe physical, and mental strain, the witness kept hiß wits and his 'temper throughout, Bishop Cleary generously admitting at the close that; Canon Garland had treated him courteously and frankly, Canon , Garland alse gave this strong opponent credit for the same qualities. The Committee's report is awaited with extreme interest.
