ST. MICHAEL'S COLLEGE APPEAL An Educated Ministry. DISENDOWMENT INJUSTICE. An effort was made on'Wednesday afternoon to bring the work being done in St. Michael's College, Llandaff, to the notice of the public, and also to obtain assistance towards the build- ing fund, on which there is a debt of £ 5,000. A large number of Church- people were invited to the College to hear an address from Lord Hugh Cecil, and there was a gratifying response to the invita- tion. A large marquee had been erected in the beautiful grounds of the College for the accom- modation of visitors, and in this was a plat- form adorned with pretty plants. The Lord Bishop of Llandaff presided, and amongst those supporting him on the platform were Lord Hugh Cecil, the Bishop of St. David's, Rev. Dean Davey, Archdeacon Edmondes, Rev. Canon Buckley, Rev. Canon Beck, Rev. Canon Harding, Rev. H. R. Johnson (warden), Rev. H. J. Riddlesdale (sub-warden), Rev. C. A. H. Green, Rev. A. C. Lindsay, Messrs A. Sims, T. B. R. Wilson, Byass, G. Lipscomb, Mrs Owen, Mrs Hughes. Misses Davey, Miss Owen, Mrs Byass, and Miss De Winton. Chairman's Opening Address. The Chairman, in an introductory address, welcomed the College to the cathedral city of Llandaff, and said how much they appreciated the services it was calculated to render to the Church in this diocese and throughout the Principality. (Applause.) They must all feel that it was the right thing to remove the College to the cathedral city, and that removal meant a great deal, for it tended to bring the College more into the life of the diocese and into con- tact with the cathedral and the great and grow- ing city of Cardiff with its University College. (Applause.) Those circumstances augured well for its future. They hoped the College would be as broad as the Church of England. Upon the assumption that it would be, they based their hopes for the future. It would not be a College confined to one section, but would em- brace and benefit all. In these days, when education had become so*much more widely spread than 20 or even 10 years ago, when men and women were thinking for themselves, when every institution was progressive, it did not do for the Church to lag behind, for it was of the utmost importance thsft men going forth to teach and preach themselves be abreast of the itimes and be well qualified to teach. (Applause.) That was what by degrees they were trying to do. This great question of the adequate and proper training of candidates for Holy Orders had occupied the attention of the Church for many years, and quite recently there had been no less than five Committees or Com- missions sitting to consider the subject. It was felt throughout the Church that the manner in which the future clergy were pre- pared for their work was most important. He was glad to be able to testify from the ex- perience he had had there that tho College was doing a great work in the preparation of can- didates for Holy Orders. (Applause.) Six students from the College went up to the last Trinity examination, and four of these were the gospellers in the several dioceses. (Applause.) A gospeller meant that the student had passed in the examination for deacon's orders. That in itself was eloquent practical testimony to the value of the work being done at that Col- lege. (Applause.)

Lord Hugh Cecil.
