The Rev J. Sidney Boucher, the principal of the North Wales Training College, was dismissed by the committee of management, consisting, among others, of the Bishops of Bangor and SL Asaph, without assigning any reason, and he applied to the archbishop to hear the case. Mr Prideaux, Q.C., appeared in his behalf, and Mr J. A. Stephens, Q.C., (Mr Trail with him) for the com- mittee. An objection was made to the jurisdiction of his grace, and was discassed at Lambeth Palace in December last. Sir Travers Twiss attended as assessor, and the judgment was reserved. A report had been made by Sir Travers Twiss to the arch- bishop, on which his grace communicated his judg- ment to the parties. Notwithstanding the answer of the managing committee, be was anxious to hear all that could be advanced, and after the advice of his learned assessor, and in accordance with his report, he decided that he had no power to entertain the appeal of the principal against the decision of the managing committee.
