I THE CHURCHES. The Rev. E. P. Edmonds, rector of Whit- iirijrton, writes in the Oswestry Deanery Mag'- azine that episcopal palaces and rectoiriiif mansions givc the impression, however false, < of alootiiess and affluence. They will have to g. "There arc clergy in and near this city who do not get—and whose families do not get, enough to eat to enable them to do their work cfficiemly, said the vicar of Leeds at a oieel- jlJ in that city 011 Monday. The dcatli occurred at Chester, on Mon- day, at the age of 79, of the J lev. James a pa.t president of the National Eva-Tig,, lical Fi-e,) Church Council, an<l past president of the Primitive Methodist Conference. At the annual meeting of the West Merioneth Caivinisiic Methodists at Pen- rhyndeudraeth, the following wen1 elec- ted officers :-Presidpnb, the Rev. R. R. Biacnau J''e-uniog. and Mr Ed- Morr is, Griffith, Harlech; tiealirer, Mr ward M orns, Griffith, ilartech; t) ea.-urot' Mr 'ArSBider Hughes, Hartbcris; secretary, the Rev. Hugh Levi Jones; Croc&or. PASTORS' MINIMUM RAISED. At a meeting of tho West Merioneth Presbytery, at Penrhyndeudraeth, on [Wednesday, the deacons held special sit- tings at which it was unanimously decided to increase ministers' minimum remunera- tion for Sunday services from 30s to 40s, tit-art-in g with the new year. NEW BANGOR PASTOR, The Itev. E. Cefni Jones, at present pastor of the Baptist Church at Hirwain. Glamorganshire, has accepte(I a call to tho pastorate of the Penuel Welsh Baptist Church, Bangor. Mr Jones, who was edu- cated at the North .Wales Baptist College, ■Bangor, is a native of Llangefni, and has previously held pastorates at Llanbens and 31a enau Festiniog-. FEEE8 AND 3ERIS. Iti these days of many dioceses (says the Daily Express) a new bishop lias to wait many years before he reaches one of the privil- eges of his office-that of a seat in the Houso of Lords. In the old days there were twenty- four bishops and twenty-four scats on the Episcopal Bencli. Wlicn the number of sees was increased, the spiritual peers were not given extra representation. Instead, three of til em-LODdoii, Durham and Winchester—were each accorded a seat -by right, and tho re- niainder, who now number thirty-six, had to await vacancies among the twenty-one places ill order of seniority. C.M. MONTHLY MEETING. I At the Monthly Meeting of the Arvon C.M., held at Engedi, Carnarvon, on Monday, the following were appointed officers for the ensuing yearPresidents, Rev. J. E. Hughes, B.A., B.D., Portdin- orwic, and JNir Rowland Williams, laly- earn. The Rev. R. Dew i W illiams, B.A., was elected representative on the Bala College Committee, and Mr Rhys Wil- liams, Carnarvon, was appointed auditor. The following were appointed delegates to the Genoral Assembly:—Revs. H. Harris Hughes, B.A., Bangor; R. M. Jones, Clasgood; Messrs .R. J. William- Ban- gor; ajid Rhys Williams, Carnarvon. Dr. John Williams.. 1'iynsieLcyn, called attention to the Connexion's pub- lications. He complained of the lack of support given by members of the ch urclie^. MR LLOYD GEORGE'S FAVOURITE I HYMNS. The Church Family Newspaper'' last week had an article on tho Premier's favourite hymns. After mentioning what may bo news to a good many, that Mr Lloyd George is very musical and the possessor of a fine tenor voice, the article goes on to state that the Premier has several favourite hymns, the chief of which is "Jabcz," which he has been persuaded to translate into English. The first line reads: "If e'er I cross the wilderness. Brynhyfryd," and "Dyfrdwy" are other hymns for which Mr Lloyd George has a special liking. In addition to these, the Prime Minister is particularly fond of the great mining hymn, "Cwm R.hondda," which is full of force and fire, and is sung every- where by Welsh miners. Another favourite is the weird and mournful "Moriah." '"Dwyfor" is another hymn to which the Premier is very attached. flis is the name of the mountain stream I at Llanystumdwy. where Mr Lloyd George spent his boyhood, and he says that the tune of this hymn is like the music of the water rippling over the rocks. Mr Lloyd George not only takes a keen in- terest in the preservation of the old Welsh hymn tunes, but encourages present com- posers in them.
