THE GENERAL ELECTION.

METHODIST RESOLUTIONS ON BIBLEIN SCHOOLS,

The Taranaki-Wanganui Methodist Synod passed the following resolu tion:—

"Tb.9 Synod expresses itn satisfac tion at the continued growth and activity of the Bible in State Schools League now numbering over 150,000 members, and the able manner in which Canon Garland and bis coad jutors placed the evidence before the Parliamentary Committee. Tbe Synod regrets that that Committee by its re commendations carried by tbe nar rowest majority gave a lead to Parlia ment which resulted in the question being withheld from tbe people through the Referendum not being granted, and tbe question thus being hurled into the arena of politics at the election. We realise that some ad vance has been made in receiving some recognition by Parliament of tbe necessity of Bible teaching, and urge our ministers to take advantage of tbe facilities offered under the Nelson system until the more adequate provisions advocated by the League be securtd. We also pledge ourselves to strenous action witb a view to obtaining the Referendum from the next Parlia ment."

The Nelson Methodist Synod passed tbe following resolution : — " Thin Synod is of opinion tbat, all other things being equal, no candidatefor Parliament is worthy cf tbe sup. porr, of our p-ople who is nor, prepared to give them the right to vole on the question of the introduction of the iiiblo into our State Schools."
