(Special Dispatch to Tho Bee.)-Durlng tha National Mis sionary congress held In Chicago May 10-June 6, tha various religious bodies rep resented drew up statements of their own particular views In relatlop tj tha great common cauae which had drawn them all together. Hera Is a paragraph clipped from tha memorandum adopted by the member of the churchmen's conference: . yA An Airirmation we anirm tnat upon Ivor church re-ma the responsibility for: f M. The "local parish." which Includes hla own congregation and tha community In which he Uvea. A, Tha "diocesan parish," which Include "IT parts or hla dlnceae where the church Is unknown or weak, and where help Is needed to establish It strongly. i. The "national parish," which Includes that part of our own country beyond the borders of his diocese, where tha church as a whole In carrying on mlaxlon work. 4.

I A great deal has been said during the ' I." laa fnw mnntha nrhinl msira than vt In tha whole history of the Christian religion up to the present time, of the necessity of bishops In the Christian ehurch. I fancy that I could atart very enthusiastic If not an ultra harmon ious discussion on that subject If I really set myself to get my hearers all by tha I eara, but perhapa I better say at once that s. I have no such purpose In mind, v. Bit ot Word ralatlnar In glancing over the recent number of 'vtha New York 'Churchman, I waa Impressed .W a bit of word-painting In regard to tha 'rtiTJ.', f-esponsllbttlea and powers that a missionary bishop may possess, and It oc - - m i.r .il a ma that mnstA manv H i mf 1 1 I slons might ba avoided If the genuine re i ..,.. . . - ". oc a given course oi action were oearly presented to tha people at tne atari Instead of the endeavor being made to ij)v conclusions from premises which probably have lost their Interest to the majority of people. To quote from tha Churchman: "The Christian Unity association of Edinburgh, which brings together for mutual discus slon representatives of tha varloua churches in tha community, recently listened to an able exposition by Canon Daweson of the advantage of hiving the work of th ehurch entrusted tc an authoritative super Intendent rather than to an Impersona committee. Illustrating his point especially from the missionary field. 'The missionary bishop,' he said, 'Is literally a general at the head of hla forcea. Ha may not ba able to use such words aa the French I bishop of tha Roman church, who boasted, k 'My clergy are a regiment; at tha word - njareh, they march.' Nor, If ha ia a true son of tha Anglican church aystem, would he wish to use such words. Since the whole spirit of the system is tha deval opment of, rather than tha auppresslon of, Individuality. But he Is very much the head and leader of hla ataff. In soma few cases, aa in that of the missionary dlo- ' case of Lebombo and Korea, a bishop la first appointed and sent out,' and Is ex pected to gather a band of worker about him. There, having no troublesome vested -flights, can ba sent where they are moat wanted, and given precisely the work they seem most fitted to do. The bishop Is lit erally their father, and often to a consid erable extent their provider, alnca tha nec essary funds have to ba gathered, or at least supplemented, by hla exertions. What effective thing can be done by such a bishop may easily be aeen In the lives o Belwyn, Fatteson, Steers, French, Lompas, . Maehrey, Ridley and really loo many other u roe rate here." ldHh office of the Society for tha Prop- agatlon of the Faith, Cathedral college building, Madison avenue and Fifty-first treat,.
