LONDON, April SO.— At ths night ses
sion of the London Diocesan Conference
yesterday the Bishop of London, night
Rev. Arthur F. Ingram, made a state
ment to the effect that he had thrice sent
for an explanation, from Rev. Mr. Had
den regarding the Vandcrbllt-Rutherturd
wedding and that none had been received.
The galleries and the floor of the little
churchhouse In the shadow of Westmin
ster Abbey were crowded In anticipation
of ,the Bishop's announcement. Arising
amid Intense ' silence, the prelate salt! he
had hoped to present to the conference an
explanation from the officiating cliryy
man'ln the matter of the. "grave scandal
which recently ba"U occurred in the dio
cese." He could only surmise that a fam
ily bereavement, the death of a child, was
responsible for ' Mr. Hadden' a ' havin? en
tirely ign/red the Bishop's letters ami
messages. The Bishop characterized the
use of St. Mark's Church for the per
formance of the ceremony as constituting
a "grave moral scandal." and expre3acd
his determination not to enter the church
until due reparation had been made.
The Bishops remarks were vigorously
applauded, and the session ended with
the passage of a vote of thanks, moved
by the suffragan Bishop of London.

LONDON, Arril SO.— Lord Cranborne,
the Under Foreign Secretary, replying to
a number cf questions of the House of
Commons to-day, said that negotiations
on the subject of Manchuria were «till pro
ceeding between the power* concerned.
His Majesty's Government, however, had
received from a trustworthy source con
firmation of the statement that Russia
had announced that she had no knowl
edge of the reported convention, and that
•he disclaimed any intention of seeking
exclusive privileges or departing from her
previous assurances regarding Manchuria.
Answering a suggestion that the Gov
ernment should propose that Russia refer
the Manchurian, Persian and similar dif
ferences to The Hague Arbitration Tribu
nal. Premier Balfour said that, while de
sirous of using to the utmost the advan
tages offered by The Hague Tribunal, the
Government did not think that the ques
tions pending between Great Britain and
Russia could be submitted thereto.
