The dioctin convention of the Protastant Episcopal churches in New York City, which began its sessions this morning in tLe church of the Incarnation, will asked to make provision for a pud chaplain to assist Bishop Potter in his multitudinous iaboi s in connection with tbe work of tbe diocese. The proposal will call forth a spirited discussion and the result will be awaited witb inter est by the Prottstaut Episcopal church throughout the country. Obje't'.otis will not be made on gtounds person il to the bisbop of New York and indeel it is gecerally admitted that be has need of an assistant in the performance of his routine labors, but tne fact will be pointed out with emphasis that saould action in the affirmative.be tak en it may prove the entering wedge ior tbe introduction Into the Anglican church in America of a custom which, if generally adopted, will prove both expensive and cumbersome. At pres ent no Episcopal bishop in this country is provided with a regularly appointed chaplain, while in England and in the most of tbe English colonies there is a chaplain connected w.th each apostolic office, tbe aichbishop of Canterbury having three such helpers, mere has heretofore existed a certain laient c tr ie t ion to tbj creation of such offices ou this side of the Atlantic, but those favoring the innovation argue that the sturdy growth of the denomination in recent years and tbe consequent in crease in tbe amount of routine work to be performed by the bishop of today render a change of some sort absolute ly neces-ary.
