=::==:.ft==:===-=-=:=:=.= "w ELECTIONEERING IN THE SNOW. Serious floods were caused in the LotMani on Monday by the melting of the snow which had fallen heavily for days. Rivers over- flowed their banks, and miles of land were under water. In Berwickshire drifts over twenty feet high still remained. In the Lauder district the railway line was opened after a stoppage of four days. Several ham- c lets had been completely cut off from outside communication for five days. While returning from his campaign in West Fife, Mr. John D. Hope, M.P., was snowed up near Tranent. His motor-car was extricated by miners from a snowdrift, but after proceeding some distance the car again became embedded, and it was found impos- sible to get any further. Mr. Hope had to remain overnight at Tranent. The Sunday mails were despatched from Kirkby Stephen by sledge to Tebay, but snowdrifts eight feet high blocked the road, and the driver had to return to Kirkby Stephen, which he reached about midnight in an exhausted condition. The gale along the south coast of Ireland continued with unabated severity on Mon- day, and much damage was done to the gear of the fishing fleets. Polling in the West Cork constituency was carried on under great difficulties owing to the snow. The candidates and their friends found it almost impossible to travel, and in many cases their cars had to be abandoned.
