THE CHESTER DIOCESAN CONFERENCE. TO THE EDITOR. X Sir,—The Diocesan Conference of 1905 has come and gone, and important results may be expected to follow it. The Bishop's address was thoughtful. statesmanlike, and farseeing, as was to be expected from one of the most distinguished prelates of our time. The speakers on temperance and juvenile smoking were most sensible and their remarks valuable, though too much appeared to be expected from parents while drinking and smoking facilities are being multiplied. The discussion on the depopulation of the country districts did not sufficiently emphasise the enormous cost of build- ing owing principally to inflated wages. The model cottage of a garden city may cost £150, plus builder's profit, architect's fees, and charges for laying foundations, but C250 is found to be the least for which a decent cottage can be built if all charges which have to be paid are included. The relaxation of the ''paraon's freehold" was declared to depend on the provision of an adequate system of pensions, which can hardly bo expected in the near future. The Bishop of Ripon's eloquent address on national character was clear and intelli- gible to all, and most interesting and useful. In une matter the Diocesan Conference is unmerciful. Neither age nor long service exempts men from iseiving on committees. The Rural Deans for instance have already more than they can do, and their place on committees might well be taken by the juuior incumbent in each Rural Deanery.—I am, sir, yours &c., CHURCHMAN.
