NORTH WARWICKSHIRE ELECTION. The declaration of the poll for North Warwickshire took place on Tuesday at Coleshill. The polling closed on the previous evening at five o'clock, and by nine o'clock all the ballot-boxes were in; but the counting did not begin until ten o'clock on Tuesday morning. At ten minutes to two the numbers were announced as follows, amid loud cheering from the Conservatives present: Muntz 5282 Corbett 3538 Majority 1744 1 There were 8875 ballot papers, of which fifty-five were rejected. Although the result of the election had been generally foreseen, neither party was pre- pared to find Mr. Muutz returned by so large a majority. At the last contested election in 1874, the numbers were: Newdegate (C.), 4672; Bromley Davenport (C), 4322; Muntz, G. F. (L.), 3189, show- ing a majority for the highest Conservative candi- date of 1483, or 46 per cent. This time the majority amounts to 49 per cent., and nearly 9000 polled out of not quite 12,000 on the register. Mr. Philip Albert Muntz, of Dunsmore, near Rugby, who has been elected in the Conservative interest in the place of the late Colonel Bromley- Davenport, is the youngest son of the late Mr. George Frederick Muntz, of Umberslade, Warwickshire, who sat for some years as M.P. for Birmingham in the advanced Liberal interest, and was born in the year 1839. Mr. Muntz, who was educated by private tutors, is a magistrate for Warwickshire, and married, in 1859, Rosalie, daughter of Mr. Philip Henry Muntz, M.P., of Edstone-hall, Warwickshire. He now enters Parliament for the first time, and is the 112th new member returned to St. Stephens since the last general election. His return on the present occasion leaves the balance of parties in the House of Commons unaltered, the late member having also been a Conservative.
