THE NEW BISHOP OF ST. DAVID'S. It is officially reported that the Queen has approved of the appointment of the Rev. Canon Owen, Principal of St. David's Col- lege, Lampeter, to the bishopric of St. David's. Principal Owen was educated at Jesus College, Oxford, and graduated in I 1876. He was ordained four years later by the Bishop of St. David's. Most of his work I has been done in scholastic offices. From 1879 to 1885 he served successively as tutor, classical lecturer, and professor of Welsh at St. David's College, Lampeter. In the latter year he succeeded Dr. Edwards, the present Bishop of St. Asaph, as head master of Llan- dovery College, and retained that post until 1889, when he was appointed Dean of St. Asaph, Dr. Edwards having been appointed Bishop of St. Asaph in the same year. Can- on Owen left St. Asaph in 1892 to undertake the Principalship of Lampeter, but retained a residentiary canonry at St. Asaph. Prin- cipal Owen belongs to a Nonconformist I family. He is thoroughly Welsh in speech and sympathies, and has taken a keen in- terest in the Welsh education and Church Defence controversies. As a Church defen- der, indeed, he comes second only to Bishop, Edwards, though his methods are much less calculated than those.of the former to excite the resentmept of his opponents. It is worth noting, is connection with the memor- able speech which Mr. Gladstone delivered in the House of Commons some j ears ago in defence of the Welsh Church, th .1 Canon Owen was closeted with Mr. Gladstone for some hours before the debate, and he is credited with having been the Liberal leader's 'coach' in reference to the progress of Church work in Wales. Principal Owen is the third Welsh bishop to be drawn in succession from the ranks of schoolmasters.
