Tha Bishop's hit at "wlre-pulllnB" to ob

his return to America ho had been Im
pressed with tho activity nf the laymen In
tho foreign mission enterprise, contrasting
tho Italy of former days with tho Italy
of todkyj a tjcw Italy, an awakened and
enlightened Italy. Ho explained that a
lack of vision had been responsible for
Italy of the past, hut that the advent of re
ligion bUsed on something other than his
tory ha'd brought about tho changes.

The "blBhop'.then presented Doctor Hof

A public rebuke administered by Bishop

cern, while the fatter was speaking.
Recently, In an open letter. Dr. Cooke
criticised a book which had been published
by Dr. Mains; and challenged htm to a de
bate on the subject Dr. Mains Ignored
both Ufa criticism and the challenge.
When the hour for presentation of me
morials was reached. Dr. Mains vas intro
duced and asked to address the Confer

when .suddenly Dr. Cooke interrupted him
"Without wishing to be discourteous to
Br. Mates, I tatfl tho attention of the Con
ferenqe.to the' Special order."
Before Dri Mains could reply, Bishop
Barry came back at Dr. Cooke in crisp
"If you wanf to be courteous you will
take xour seat, If you want to be a bore.
Interest tha speaker, who Is your guest."
