EDDISBURY REPRESENTA- TION. e IMPORTANT UNIONIST ACTION. COL. COTTON-JODRELL RECOM- MENDED. A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Eddisbury Unionist party was held in Chester on Saturday afternoon. The Selection Committee re- cently appointed submitted their report, which recommended Colonel Cotton-Jodrell to the General Committee as the Unionist candidate for the Eddisbury division, when a vacancy occurs by the retirement of Mr. Henry Tollemache at the close of the present Parliament. The report was adopted. SOME PERSONAL DETAILS. Colonel Edward T Davenant Cotton-Jodrell, of Reaseheath Hall, Nantwieh. is the only son of the late revered Bishop Cotton of Calcutta, by his marriage with Sophia Anne, daughter of the Rev. H Tomkinson, of Reaseheath Hall, and was born in 1847. He was educated at Rugby and Marl- borough and at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. He entered the army as a lieutenant in the Royal Artillery in July. 1868, and retired in April, 1881. Colonel Cotton-Jodrell married in 1878, Mary Rennell, eldest daughter of Mr. W. R. Coleridge, of Salston, Ottery Sr.. Mary. At the end of 1890 he took the name of Cotton-Jodrell on succeeding to the extensive Jodrell estates. The gallant officer has commanded the Crewe Volunteer Engineers with conspicuous success, and rendered valuable services during the late war in despatch- ing Volunteers to South Africa. He has been honoured with the distinction of the Companionship ot the liath. Colonel Cotton-Jodrell's political career has been one of continued success. In 1885 he was opposed in the Wirral Division by Mr James Tomkinson, whom he defeated by 1.495, the voting being Cotton- Jodrell. 4,756; Tomkinson. 3,261. In 1886 he was unopposed, and in 1892 Mr. B. C. de Lisle fought him, with the result that he was defeated by 5 509 votes to 3.051, the Conservative majority being 2,458. In 1895 Col. Cotton-.Todrell was unopposed, and in 1900 he retired i rom the representation of the constituency. The gallant colonel is an ideal landlord, and a true friend of the farmer, as his conduct and speeches at the Cheshire Chamber of Agriculture and other bodies have amply shewn. It will be remembered that he recently conducted some important experiments in wheat growing.
