CO-OPERATION AMONG WORKING MEN. The Bishop of Manchester, who on Saturday distri- bated tne prizes to the successful students in connec* tion with the art and science classes of the Bury JJistrict Co-operative Society, said there was nothing that argued more for the stability and well-being of society in general in England in times so critical as those through which we were passing than the exten- sion of the system of co-operation among the great body of the working men. vi »!erjv^ to the subject of recreation, the Bishop said he aid not think that one could listen to a play of Shakespeare's, such as "King Lear" or "Hamlet," or any good play by great actors, and worthily put upon the stage, without feeling benefited, and if all plays were of that kind he, as a minister, should have no hesitation in recommending the people to go to them. On the question of opening libraries, picture galleries, and the like on Sundays, his sentiment might be in favour of opening such institutions, and yet he could not without fears and apprehensions as a bishop say that he could thoroughly go in for it. He had been asked his opinion upon the proposal to open the Manchester Royal Institution on Sundays, and he had asked if they did open it not to do so during church services. He was glad to find that it had been decided not to open the institution during church hours, so that there would be three hours during which the people could go and see papera and pictures with- out being debarred from the proper observances of the Lord's Day,
