The Auckland City Schools Committee received a donation of books from the local Scripture Gift Association. One of them is 1 A Life of Bishop Patteson,' The following passage occurs in page 15:—" He was only six years old when he told his mother that of all the things in the world he would like to be a clergyman, and when pressed for his reasons said he longed to say the ' Absolution,' because it would make people so happy." The censor of the Scripture Gift Association stuck up at the word " Absolution," and scratched it out, inserting instead "Gospel St. Mark ii„ 7." Every copy of the work was so treated. A reference to the passage referred to gives the following : " Why doth this man thus speak bias- ? henries ? Who can forgive sins but God ?" 'he Committee passed a resolution to the effect that they would be happy to receive the volumes, but in their original form. The Michigan House of Representatives has passed, by a vote of fifty-eight to twentythree, the Bill to confer upon women the right to vote at all school, village, and city elections.
