THE CHURCH OF ENCLAND IN POLITICS.
Ono or the mobt important ques
tions of the present Parliamentary
election contest in England is the
attitude of tlio two great political
paitics with regard to the Church
of England. The Tories, or Con
servative party sis they now call
themselves, are in favor of the
Established Church, and the reten
tion of all its rights and privileges.
The Liberals, or a majority of them,
as on this subject there is some dis
scntion in their ranks, are more
favorable to the separation of"
Church and State.
The Church of England, as at
present constituted, is an authorized
and paid establishment of the Statd
and of which nominally the Queen
is at the head. One of her titles is
"Defender of the Faith.' ' Being
established by law, it is supported
by the State and from revenues de
rived from its lands. It is governed
by two Archbishops and thirty-three
Bishops. The Archbishops and
twenty-four of the Bishops have
scats in the House of Peers. The
Archbishop of Canterbury, whose
oilicial title is also that of "Primate
of all England," in the order of
precedency, takes rank immediately
after the Royal family, next to him
coming the Lord High Chancellor
and the Archbishop of York, the
latter portion of whose title differs
somewhat from that of Canterbury,
being termed "Primate of England."
The Archbishop of Canterbury re
ceives the large salary of $75,000 a
year, with the magnificent residence
of Lambeth Palace. The Arch
bishop of York has $50,000 as his
ecclesiastical income, and the Bishop
of London also receives $50,000.
All of these three ecclesiastics are,
by virtue of their ofllccs, members
of the Queen's Privy Council. The
Bishops take rank after the Viscounts
and in advance of the Barons.
These Spiritual Lords, as they are
termed, being all trained speakers
and men of extensive information,
take leading parts in the debates in
the Upper House of Parliament.
Their influence can go very far,
w hen they choose to exert it, tow ards
tlie.pas.8age or defeat of a Parlia
mentary bill. Thus they have social
and political as well as religious
privileges above the clergy of other
denominations. They arc part of
the State machinery and Govern
ment. The Bishop of Durham ic
ceives 35,000, and the salaries of
the other bishops average over $20,
000. The lowest being that of the
Bishop of Sodor and Man, who is,
however, not a Peer of Parliament.
The inferior dignitaries of the
Church are the Deans, of whom
there are thirty, and whose income
varies from $15,000 to $3,500, the
average being $7,500. The number
of benefices is about 13,500, and
the clergy of every class number
about 23,000. The income of the
Church from all sources is estimated
at $10,000,000. In every palish
there are church-wardens, appointed
annually, who are leading parochial
officers, and whose duty is partly
ecclesiastical and partly civil.
One of the objectionable features
of the Church system is the manner
in which the patronage of the church
is exercised. This right, sometimes,
pertains to a manor or land and
sometimes it is a personal right.
The patron has an absolute right,
quite irrespective of the wishes' of
the parishioners, to present any
person he chooses to the beniflce ;
the only requirement being that, he
must be an ordained priest of the
Church of England. Nearly all the
Peers of England and many large
landed proprietors have a number
of "Church livings" at their dis
posal. The Duke of Norfolk and
the Marquis of Bute and some of
the other British Peers, though they
belong to the Roman Catholic faith,
have in this manner the appoint
ment of clergymen of the Church of
England to parishes in which Uie'
own landed property.
Among the people of England
there is a rapidly inci easing oppo
sition to this whole church system.
Aside from its political position,
those who dissent from the Estab
lished Church claim that it is not
fair, by taxation, to compel them
to give it an unwilling support. The
feeling is growing so strong that it
is generally conceded among the
friends of the Church of England
that disestablishment is a incie ques
tion of time. Within the Church
itself there is a party who believe it
would bo for its best interests to
throw off the trammels of State.
They would free it from all poli
tical influence and what they term
the doubtful advantage of State
support. They believe it would be
better for the Church and State to
be entirely distinct from each other.
In other words, they desire that the
Church of England should assimi
lato itself to the condition of that of
the Protestant Episcopal Church of
the United States, dependent upon
the voluntary support of its mem
bers and giving to the parishioners
tho right of selection of tbeir own,
clergy. They avow their principles
to be that "tho Stato should neither
support a Church uor bo subject
Tho movement for disestablish
ment of the Church of England
which in its ecclesiastical functions
also included Ireland, was com
menced in that poition of tho King
dom of Great Biitain. The popu
lation of Ireland is overwhelmingly
Roman Catholic in its religious
faith, and bitter complaints wcio
made of the people having to sup
poitnClnuch with which they had
no adlnity. Constant agitation at
last succeeded, and a few years ago
the Act of Parliament was passed
which disestablished the Chinch so
far as Ii eland was concerned. The
established church of Scotland is
Presbyterian. Its leading clergymen,
however, have no scats inPailiamcnt
byviituc of their ofllec, and it is
free ftom most of the objectionnblc
features of the Chinch of England.
The Queen, in the General Assembly
of tho Church of Scotland, is repre
sented by n Loid High Commis
sioner, appointed each year by the
Crown, and who receives the suhiof
S10,000 for his services.
The Archbishop of Canteibury
and most of the cleigy of the
Cliuich of England are exerting
their influence in behalf of the Con
seivativc party becauso it is opposed
to disestablishment, and it is stated
that Caidinal Newman, who, before
he became a convert to Romanism,
was a noted English divine and a
professor of Oxford, lias also ex
pressed himself as strongly in favor
of the retention of the ' present
Church privileges. Mr. Gladstone
docs not come out in this matter as
openly as was expected. He appears
to bo dodging the question, much to
the disappointment of many of his
followers. Perhaps it may be ac
counted for by the fact that he is a
devoted churchman ; in the absence
of the lector he olllciatcs as the
leader of the service in his own
parish at Ilawardcn, and has at
heart a hesitation for inflicting a
blow upon the Chin cli m w hich he
was reared. San Francisco Bul
letin. A CURE FOR OBESITY.
Dr. Germain Sec read a paper at
the French Academy of Medicine a
day or two ago on the treatment of
obesit'. The method which he
recommends for getting rid of the
superfluous flesh is simple, and does
not involve so severe a regimen as
that presciibed by the late Mr.
Banting. Azotized food is, the
doctor holds, the great cause of fat;
and accordingly he insists on a
spaiiog consumption of meat. Al
coholic beverages he proscribes, but
he allows the victims of corpulency
as much tea as they can drink.
This is the entire programme, and
Prof. Germain See is confident that
it suffices. St. James' Gazette.
A DELIGHTFUL COMMISSION.
Young Mr. Smylhe was passion
ately enamored of Miss Browne, and
was squirming in his chair prepar
atory to a pioposal, when the young
lady said : '
"Mr. Smythc, you pass Mr. Thin
plate, the jeweller's, on your way
homo, do you not?"
"es," he said huskily.
"Well, would you mind doing me
a little favor?"
"Mind! dear Miss Browne," hc
leplied with a look of unutterable
lepioach, "you have but to name it."
"Thanks! Will you kindly ask'
