ST. PAUL'S, TRANMERE. On Monday the Bishop of Chester instituted the Rev. A. S. Hewlett, A.K.C.L., to the bene- fice of St. Paul's. Tranmere. ARCHDEACON AND THE PRAYER BOOK.—At the annual meeting of the English Church Union (Warrington branch), held on Wednesday night, the Ven. Arehdeason of Chester said that it would bo inexpedient now to alter the Prayer Book. It was inconceivable that anyone should propose to submit it to the deliberations of the House of Commons. No- thing seemly could result from such a discussion. It would be a dangerous thing to open the flood- gates of criticism by any suggestion of alteration. They^could not know where attack would stop. It would not be limited to the ornaments and rubric, but would also act against the Athanasian Creed.—The Rev. J. Hollingworfch (vicar of St. Barnabas's, Warrington) expressed the view that no alteration of the doctrine or ritual would bring together the High and Low Church parties. CLERICAL PREFERMENTS.-The Bishop of Chester on Thursday collated the Rev. P. A. Miller, M.A., to the vicarage of St. Stevens, Prenton. Mr. Miller was formerly vicar of St. Indes, Tilstone Fearnall. He was educated at Pembroke College, Oxford, and St. Aidan's College, obtaining his B.A. in 1893 and M.A. in 1895. He was ordained deacon in 1894 and priest in 1895, being curate of St. Mary's, Liscard, from 1894 to 1897. and at St. Oswald's, Chester, from 1897 to 1903, in which latter year he was appointed vicar of Tilstone Fearnall. His lordship licensed the following to curacies:—The Rev. F. H. Coveney, to St. Paul's, Crewe the Rev. G. A. Duncan, B.A.. to St. Peter's, Chester the Rev. T. J.
