f BISHOP OF CHESTER MOBBED. A critical stage has been reached in the Protes- tant agitation in Birkenhead regarding Ritualistic practices in the Church of England. Ou Monday evening nearly 2000 members of the Kensit crusade gained admission to a meeting at the Association Hall under the auspices of the Church Pastoral Aid Society. The proceedings were quite orderly until the Bishop of Chester rose to address the meeting. He was immediately requested by the leader of the "crusaders" to apologise for having remarked that the Protestants of Birkenhead were "a reforming mob who were discrediting religion." The bishop declined to enter into a. discussion, whereupon most of the crusaders," after hooting the bishop, left the hall. Those who remained would not allow Dr. Jayne to make any remarks, and after he had endeavoured to make himself heard for over a quarter of an hour the meeting broke up in confusion. Outside the building a monster procession with torchlights and several bands paraded the streets awaiting the bishop. Had the infuriated crowd got within reach of the bishop he would undoubtedly have been roughly handled. Fortunately the crowd were hoodwinked, and the distinguished divine escaped through the rear of the building and caught his train to Chester without suffering any molestation.
