I HOOLg COUNCIL AT CHURCH. I On Sunday mc ruing tlie chairman and mem- bers of the Hooks Urban Council observed the annual custom of attending divine service at All Saints' Church by tlie inviiation of the Vicar to inaugurate the new year of office. Despite tho inclemency of the weather there was a crowded congregation, and a representa- tive number of local residents assembled at the District Council Offices to meet the mem- bers of the Council and join in the procession to the church, which was headed by the mem- bers of the He-ole Fire Brigade, under tlie commatjd of Major R. CeejJ Davic, -Surgic,(,n- Lieutenant. Butt and Lieutenant Atkin, and the All Saints' Company of the Church Lads' j Brigade, under Mr. John Barber ilieiteiitiii), and Quartermaster-Sergeant Hull. The attend- ance included Mr. R. Wallace ichairman of the Council), Councillors F. J. Duck, J. W. Rich mond, J. T. Ball, J. Bonn, George Dobson, H. Crowder, J. Wralton, W. Williams, W. J. Croydon and Benjamin Pttgh; Messrs. J. R. Thomson, C. Cooper, W. D. Lajrd, J. Watkin, Jas. Beck, W. Beck, C. McGilJ, Johnson, W. Leah (Deputy Chief Constable of Cheshire), J. 11. Challis, John Fenna, Andrew Storrar, A. W. Armstrong, W. G. Marrs, J. Riddell, J. Randies, F. Coveney, H. Anderson, Bell (Newton), T W. Ohalton, T. B. Richardson, T. J. Bough ton, Robert Beck, Osborne. Henry Jcnos, J. H. Fenna, Daniel Dewar, W. Walton, Mills, Samuel; Davies, James Laurie, Richardson, junr., Wal- lace, junr., J. Heaps, etc. The procession was met at the entrance of the church by tlio clergy and choir, and the National anthem was sung as they proceeded to their seats. Tho Vicar (the Rev. Grantham Collins) and the Rev, G. 0. Holt conducted the service, t.lse lessons being read by Mr. S. Reading. The hymns were "God of our fatheiiland," "Jesus lives; thy terrors now," and "Tholl to whom i.h c sick and dying," the latter being sung during ilie offertory, which was on behalf of t.he Chester Infirmary. The sermon was preached by the Vicar from the text: "There- fore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, tin. moveable, always abounding in the work of the Loi-*l forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." ilse Cor., xv., 58.) St, Paul here set forth an ideal character for public workers, a character compounded of j love and strength. There was a wonderful power in pubtie life, which had been illus- trated only just lately in the life of the late Prime Minister. What a wonderful power for overcoming opposition did we find in that per- renial good nature. It oiled all the wheels of public machinery, and made the work of pubitic administration easy and prosperous. But there must also be the power which came only of self discipline and self-restraint. Many- problems demanded their best thought. There was the problem of crime. How liarct it was to punish t.he criminal without hardening the man against hope of reformation. There wa.s the problem of sickness, and they had to deal with many who Zllld not find alleviation or employ medical skill for themselves. There was the problem of sorrow in all its hundred branches, how oould they best express prac- tical sympathy without seeming to patronise. Then there was the problem of po\erty—-how couild they relieve the poor without pauperis- in.g them? How could they best encourage self- help and maintain self-respect. And there was the great problem of ignorance, and how best to teach the young in such a way as to prepare them for their after-life, and without imper- tinent intrusion to advise the full-grown. There were also so many social, economic and sani- tary questions, such for instance as the prob- lem of infant mortality and the faiiling birth rate. Was it not encouraging and inspiring" to note what wonderful results had been pro- duced in such districts as HtidderA.?,ld and St. Panora by the strenuous effort of public bodies upon the principles he bad ju&t been quoting?
