THK Lichfield Election is a great victory for the Liberals. The title really seems to be turning in downright earnest. The Tories had fully counted on capturing Lichfield. Their candidate, Major Darwin, was a very strong nian locally, while Mr. Warner, the Liberal candidate, was almost a total stranger in the constituency. Lichfield, more- over, comes within the Birmingham sphere of influence, and Mr. Chamberlain threw his snppoit in the Major's favour. So did Sir Robert Peel, who, from the sands of Egypt, exhorted the electors to vote Toiy, and described Home Rulers as rebels." The" rehels," how- ever, sent up the majority from 44 to 528, and so Lichfield makes a rattling good third to Montrose and Southampton. It should be noted, however, that Mr. Warner did not go in for extreme Temperance legislation on restrictive lines. He took his stand boldly on the Anti-Local Veto plat- form. This is an incident the Liberal leaders should take cognisance of.
