BISHOPRIC OF WAIAPU.
(By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent.^ (_iraSTCHITRCH, this day. The name of Archdeacon Averill> of St. Michael's Parish, Christchurch, has been mentioned as the probable successor to the Bishopric of Waiapu, but nothing definite will be known . till the Synod specially meets, probably next month. Archdeacon Averill has been ministering in Christchurch for twelve years, and is very popular there. In. view of the large Native population ia the diocese of Waiapu, some are o£ opinion that an ecclesiastic who is also a Maori linguist will probably be appointed, but, on the other hand, it is sbated that a majority of the Maoris now speak English, and the necessity, for the holder of the position speaking Maori is not so great as in earlier times.
