WHAT 'THE WORLD' SAYS. ol Lord Haddington and his daughters are spending a month at Arderne Hall, Cheshire, before going to Tyningham, the family place in Haddingtonshire, for the autumn. Lord and Lady Binning, who have been for some time the tenants of Exton Park, Lord Gainsborough's place in Rutlandshire, are going to reside at Mellerstain House, Lord Haddington's interest- ing old seat in Berwickshire. I hear that the Rev. Algernon George Lawley, of Trinity College, Cambridge, Lord Wenlock's brother, has taken time to consider the offer of the rectory of Hackney, made to him by Lord Amherst of Hackney. Mr. Lawley has overworked himself during his fifteen years in the slums, first in connection with the Eton Mission and later at St. Andrew's, Bethnal Green, and his health has given way. The doctors order complete rest; and it lies with them to consider whether on his resumption of duty Mr. Lawley will be strong enough to undertake the responsibility of Hackney, The Bishop of Wakefield was a noteworthy instance of a successful parish priest being an equally good suffragen and diocesan bishop. Practically he set on foot two new dioceses, and while what he accomplished at Whittington and Wakefield would have made him a deserved reputation, his unique influence was among the poor in East London. There his name was and will long remain a household word; and in addition to his many claims to distinction as an author, poet, and scientist, he may be said, by his striking personality and inherent goodness, to have overcome the Queen's dislike to suffragans and their translation. It is generally expected that the see of Wakefield will be offered to the Bishop- Suffragan of I'hetford. Dr. Lloyd, who is a High Churchman of the same school as Bishop How, was for many years vicar of New- castle-upon-Tyne, and an intimate friend of Bishop Lightfoot. Whatever may be the real cause of the Prince of Wales not going to Homburg this year, but going to Marienbad instead, there is no doubt how it is interpreted by the hotel-keepers and shopkeepers of Homburg itself. They put it down to a want of an entente cordiale between him and the Emperor. The prince is extremely popular with the Homburg inhabitants, partly on account of his genial and good-natured manners, and also, no doubt, because his presence brings a large number of Britons in his train. The same cannot be said of the Emperor William. His unpopularity is getting very pronounced all over Germany, but especially in Prussia, and more especially still in Homburg. Prince Henri d'Orleans has been duly punished for his extremely ill-timed criticisms upon the conduct of the Italian prisoners in Abyssinia, having met the Count of Turin in the early hours of Sunday morning at a place called the Bois des Marechaux, beyond St. Cloud. The duel was a real fight, lasting for nearly half an hour, and ending with a real wound in the body of the representative of the French Royal House. It is difficult, however, to see what is proved by the result beyond the superiority of the Count of Turin as a swordsman tor the fact that the Count is handier with his weapon than the Prince seems but remotely connected with the be- haviour of the Italian officers at the capital of King Menelik. The whole affair must appear most unspeakably silly to people who have not been educated in the artificial atmos- phere of the duello. Still, one cannot avoid a feeling of satisfaction that the Italian cham- pion has had the best of the encounter. Prince Henri has the unfortunate capacity of stirring up ill-feeling wherever he goes, and of all his maladroit actions these allegations against the vanquished and unfortunate Italian soldiers must appear one of the most unpardonable.
