Salaries, housing and staffing continued to pose problems for the Cathedral’s staggering finances. During the First World War, services were well attended and record amounts had been collected. In 1920, donations by Sir Paul Chater, M. J. D. Stephens and money raised through subscriptions were used to build a new hall. Electric lights began to be installed in 1907 and punkahs were replaced by fans in 1923. Under Bishop Lander’s instructions, the Chinese diocese continued to grow, and he set up the Chinese Anglican Province, the Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui. Bishop Charles Ridley Duppuy succeeded Lander in 1920. One of Ridley Duppuy’s aims was to bring the Chinese Church and the Church of England closer together. His efforts were crucial to the 1930 reform of St John’s governance. Financial instability continued to threaten the Cathedral, if there weren’t repeated injections of funds from Chater, the Cathedral would have been a wreck.
