SHOULD PARTY COUNT BEFORE LOYALTY TO THE PRINCIPLE OF THE REFERENDUM ON THE BIBLE INSCHOOLS QUESTION ?

An emphatic answer is given by Bishop Julius, of Christchurch, wbo, speaking at a meeting of the Canter bury Branch of the Mothers' Union, urged tbe necessity of putting the Bible in Schools question ahead of other considerations. They were told, he said, that it was very wrong, very unpatriotic, and goodness knows what else besides, to take one particular thing and put it in front ; and that they ought to put party in front. He did not ask mothers to vote for a man wbo ought not to be in Parliament—a man of bad character—not even if he supported tbe Bible in Schools. But wben it came to a question not of j character but of party, then it was his opinion that New Zealand wouldnot come to utter grief during the next twelve months whether she had tbe Reform or Opposition Party at the bead ; but it would make a very great [difference indepd whether or not re* ligious io-=i.»-uc-on was given in the j schools. (Applause). That was a question not for one year, but for generations to come.
