APPEAL FOR £150,000


A recommendation that an appeal be made for £150,000 with Which to endow the proposed new Anglican Cathedral and to supplement the Mina Tait Ho r ton Bequest to meet the cost of the first portion of the building has been made by tne cathedral committee to the finance commission, set up to consider tne financial needs of the diocese, states the Church Gazette. It was reported that the original estimate for building the east end of the cathedral without the Lady Chapel and with the nave of St. Mary's removed and attached to the west end was £75,000, hut that it would cost a little under £140,000 on today's building rates. Miss Morton's bequest, originally estimated at about £60.000, now stood at £10i,t>t>i and the income was £3000 a year. The committee decided it was inadvisable to remove St. Mary s to the new site, and suggested instead that either an additional portion or the new structure should be erected, or arrangements made for some other temporary building. Bishop Simkin pointed out that there were other and greate- ne Gds in the diocese than that of a catnedral, but in view of the challenge contained in the liberal bequest he felt the work should go on.
