(Per United Press Association.]

WELLINGTON, October 23. The Education Committee this morning continued the taking of evidence upon the Bible-in-schools question. Canon Garland was further cross-exa-mined by Professor Hunter. He said it was impossible to make a short reply to the question as to the comparative morality of Victoria and New South Wales, but he thought the convict settlement at Botany Bay had left a state of affairs of which the State would feel the effect today. There should be formal recognition of religious teaching without compulsion upon the children. He did not regard the Nelson system as enabling them to : give the same religious instruction as in i New South Wales. In reply to Mr Caughley, the witness stated that they relied largely upon Australian evidence in support of their proposals. Ho accepted the statement of the Director of Education in Tasmania that the system there was a happy solution of he difficulties, but he did not know that the Roman Catholic Bishop of Tasmania had repudiated this statement. A deal of his time was occu- i pied with questions upon circulars and { correspondence. He did not assume that : those who opposed the Bible in schools \ were pagan. Catechism, creed, and I dogma could be taught under the right of ! entry instruction. The State would not I pay for this instruction. Right of entrv would be given to all denominations. He could not say what the State would do to compel teachers to give instruction if they passed a regulation providing for religious instruction.
