THE CONTEST IN THE FLINTSHIRE…

THE CONTEST IN THE FLINTSHIRE BOROUGHS. The Tories have at length got over the very troublesome question of the expense of a contest. They could not induce Mr Pennant to contest the seat in opposition to Mr John Roberts at his own expense, and at a meeting at Chester on Tuesday, they decided to defray the expenses, and Mr Pen- nant therefore decided to stand. The Liberals anticipate that Mr Roberts will be returned by a larger majority than in 1878, as he will have the whole support of the Irishmen of Flint. Mr John Roberts, the Liberal member for these boroughs, was promptly in the field, in anticipa- tion of a spirited contest with Capt. Pennant, but in the latter end of last week a meeting of Con- servatives was held, at which it was decided that Capt. Pennant would not come forward. The reason for this is obvious, and the "enlightened" votaries of Imperialism put out the name of Sir Andrew Walker, a brewer and Ex-mayor of Liverpool, as a probable candidate before that ambitious gentleman was ever invited. However, the Tories considered it better to make shift than to show the white feather, and Capt. Pennant is once more before the constituency.
