POLITICAL _J-r- Mr Bright is now at John o'Groats. Mr Ja.nes L. Stanton, of the local brewery firm of Halli- well aa t Co., has been announced as the Conservative candid. for Stroud. He is a brother to the present Libera: member. Exch-quer receipts from April 1st to July 18th. 1874, £ 20,728.9S0; corresponding period last year, £ 20,609,743. Expenditure thi3 year, £ 16.270,30-5 last year, £ 28,202,761. Balanc this year, £ 1,819,074; last year, £ 1,473,523. Both tr Charles Mark Palmer and Sir George Elliot, who w-.r,- lately returned for North Durham in the Liberal and Ccj-;eivative interest, have been petitioned against. Bribery, treating, personation, and undue influence, are amongs. the allegations on either side. Mr G -1 istone has just replied to a memorial requesting him to ^ui.port the Women's Suffrage Bill. He says he must is. recede from the statement he made in Parliament during former years on this important-question. Confining himselt ^o this general statement, he reserves any more par- ticular sr,;i. ement for what he may deem a suitable occa- sion in rarliament. The Kidderminster election petition has resulted in the unseatii J: of Mr Albert Grant, who is condemned in costs. The pc fcal history of this constituency shows that from 1832 to 1837 it returned a Liberal representative to Parlia- ment. fllèn for fifteen years it sent a Conservative. In July, 1852. Mr Lowe was elected, and he retained the seat until 15U. when he was succeeded .by Mr A. R. Bristow. In April. 1862, Mr Bristow was appointed Solicitor to the Admiralty,and the seat was filled by the Hon. Luke White, now Lo d Annally. Mr Grant defeated Colonel White in 1865, bur, in 1868 Mr Thomas Lea, a Liberal, was elected. At the 'ast general election Mr Grant succeeded in re- gaining the seat, which he has now lost.
