was, on Thursday of last week, consecrated sixth Bishop of Salford in succession to the late Bishop Henshaw, the first anniversary of whose death occurred on Saturday. The consecrating prelate was Archbishop Downey, and the co-consecrators, the Bishops of Nottingham and Leeds. The Bishop of Shrewsbury preached.

The ceremony took place in the Cathedral, Salford, which was crowded to its fullest capacity with a congregation fully representative of the Catholic life of the diocese and the local Municipalities. Most of the five hundred clergy of the diocese were present, and most parishes had lay representatives, tickets being allotted to the parishes for this purpose. The Lord Mayor of Manchester was represented by Alderman J. Toole, J.P., and the Town Clerk of Manchester by the City's Assistant Solicitor, Mr. F. W. Crowther. Both the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor of Salford were present, as well as the Mayor of Oldham (Alderman J. Bannon).

Owing to the exigencies of the time several members of the Hierarchy who intended to be present were unable to leave their dioceses. Bishop Mathew, who was to have represented Cardinal Hinsley, was unable to attend, as were Bishop Dey and Bishop Cotter. Among those present were the Bishops of Shrewsbury, Clifton, Menevia, and Lancaster.
