fluence therein. The Church ot England has
two convocations, ono of Canterbury and ono
of York, known respectively as tho southern

Both the archbishop of Canterbury and tho
archbishop of York aro entitled Primate of
England, but he of Canterbury is authorized
also to prefix boforo "England" tho adjective
"all" ror this reason the archbishop of
Canterbury claims pre-eminence, and tho
claim Is enforced by such considerations as (1)
a $73.000-a-year salary against York's 530.000 a
year; (2) tho capital ot Great nrltaln being
situate In the province of Canterbury, and. by
certain historical associations with British
royalty In coronations, etc. But this prc-em
lneiice of Canterbury has been disputed
stoutly by York and ue Northern province,
and current is tho story of an Archbishop ot
York belated at an ecclesiastical assembly ot
England, seating himself In tho lap ot tho si
