Refusal of a Church Rate.-The parish of St. Mary and St. Eanswith, Folkestone, refused a church- rate last week, by a vote in vestry of seventeen to thirteen. No poll was demanded. The incumbent (the Rev. M. Woodward), who was in the chair, would not allow Captain Boxer, R.N., local agent 'of the South Eastern Railway Company, to take part in the proceedings, because he was not himself a ratep&yer' though the company pay one-third the rates of the parish; and when, subsequently, the incumbent atä tempted to address the meeting, he was prevented. from doing so because he himself was not a ratepayer nor a resident in the parish.
