PROPOSED TESTIMONIAL TO THE REV. D. B. HOOKE. The eleventh annual assembly of the English Congregational Union of North Wales was held last week, at Buckley, when the jhairman of the Union, Mr. J. Parry Jones, of Oswes- try, presided. In the course of his address the president referred as follows to the Rev. D. Burford Hooke:â"And in connection with the establisment of the Union I cannot but think that, whatever words of mine may be out of place in this address, this Assembly will deem it only an act of the barest gratitude that I should express in the name of the Union our deepest indebtedness to our secretary Mr Hooke (hear, hear). The word indefatigable is indeed trite and feeble to describe his labours in con- nection with this Union (hear, hear). I am glad to know that some more formal expression of the feelings of the Union upon this subject will be made during the course of the present meetings, but I feel that, occupying the posi- tion I now do, I am bound to express my own views in this matter (cheers)." The Rev. W. Jenkins, of Newtown, in pro- posing the election of officers for the ensuing year, said they were all very sorry the secretary intended partially severing his connection with the Union, but were glad to think that through him the Union would be connected with the larger spiritual life of the English people, and they would all wish Mr Hooke as great success, happiness, and prosperity in the future as he had enjoyed in the past (hear, hear). The Rev. T. Lloyd seconded the motion, which was agreed to. Mr Waterhouse, of Holywell, also referred to the services of Mr Hooke in the formation of the Union, and moved That the General Purposes Committee composed of representa- tives from each county and the officers of the Union forma committee to receive subscrip- tions and to make and carry out the arrange- ments, with a view to presenting Mr Hooke with a suitable present as a momento of the high appreciation in which he is held, and in small recognition of the value of the services he has rendered." Mr Waterhouse mentioned that letters had been received from many friends on the subject, and Mr S. Smith, M.P. had offered X3 3s, Mr Davies of Bootle £2 2s, and Mr T. Minshall of Oswestry 21 Is. Mr H. Roberts seconded the motion, which was agreed to, and a subscription list was opened in the room.
