ST JOHN'S, WvRKSOP. JUBILEE ANNIVERSARY. THIS month St. John's Church, Work- sop, is celebrating the jubilee anniversary of its Consecration. The church owes its existence to the Foljambe family, of Os- berton, Worksop, and it has always been identified with the Evangelical tradition of the Church of England. The founda- tion stone was laid by Countess Milton, who gave the site, on April 16th, 1868, and the church was consecrated by the Bishop of Lincoln, in which dioeere Worksop then was, on August 9th of the following year. The late Mr. G. Savile Foljambe endowed the church, and his descendants continue to take a generous interest in its welfare. Owing to cir- cumstances it was found necessary to defer the jubilee celebration services until now. Fifty years ago Worksop was only a small town of 10,000 inhabitants, whereas now the population approximates 25,000, with every likelihood of a further in- crease, especially in St. John's parish. The first vicar was the Rev. uharlc" Bury, who left in 1872 on being appointed to Tickhill by the late IIT. Hon. F. J. S. Foljambe, He was succeeded by the Rw. G. Dobree, who was the Vicar from 1872- 1909, a man whose fervent zeal and true piety is a cherished memory. Mr. Dobree's good work is continued by the present Vicar, the Rev. J. H. Bligh, under whose influence- St; John's is steadily progressing. To mark the jubilee, the church has been renovated and re-decorated; the organ has been enlarged, the electric light installed, and the interior of the lofty spire thoroughly restored. A memorial to the many men of the parish who fell in the war has been placed in the church in the form of a brass tablet. The Lord Bishop of Southwell was the preacher on Sunday morning, and on Sunday next the Ven. Archdeacon Hack- ing, of Newark, will dedicate the organ and unveil the Memorial Tablet. As special preachers the Vicar has also had the assistance of two former curates, viz., the Rev. John Goulton, M.A., Vicar of St. Philip's, Nottingham, and the Rev. W. Langford, Vicar of Little- borough. St. John's Church is a centre of missionary enterprise and activity.

THE ULSTER QUESTION, ITS RELIGIOUS SIDE IN a sermon preached in Belfast Cathedral, the Very Rev. Dean Grierson, Bishop-elect of Down and Connor, re- ferring to the religious side of the Ulster question said, At times men tried to explain the hatred of England that ex- isted so largely in Nationalist Ireland by saying that it was due to the Celts' passionate devotion to their native land and the wrongs inflicted upon them in past centuries by England. But if that was so, how did it happen that Scotland, which also suffered grievous wrongs in past centuries, and was Celtic in blood, could combine intense love for Scotland with a pride in forming part of a glorious world-wide Empire? The real cause of the trouble in Ireland wa.s that two religious systems—two religious ideals—contended for the mastery there. On the one hand, Ultramontane Romanism seeking to bend all thought and life into obedience of ecclesiastical authority. On the other hand was the reformed faith, with its sturdy belief in liberty of thought and with its convic- tion that the most certain way of giving victory to Christ's religion was to pre- sent its truths for willing acceptance to the free conscience of mankind. These systems were intrinsically antagonistic, and the history of their rivalry was as long as the history of Christian progress. Where Ulster Stands. They in Ulster were so placed that they were not merely struggling for passing political aims, but were contending for civil and religious liberty, just as their forefathers, generation after generation, had done throughout long centuries be- fore them, and English statesmen would do well to remember that they were not there facing a mere passing quarrel. As a matter of fact, they stood where Eng- land stood in the days of Edward I., when Papal jurisdiction was contested. If the Roman Church confined herself to the spiritual shepherding of her own flock, no voice would be raised against her. They opposed her because she sought to bring the pressure of her authority to bear upon every depart- ment of their social life. But under her control they would never willingly suffer themselves to be placed, and it would be WELL if all concerned would bear in mind that never under any circumstances would Protestant Ulster consent to be placed under an Irish Parliament that would be predominantly Roman; she would resist it, he believedf to the death.
