A COMMITTEE-ROOM COMEDY. One of those little comedies which serve to enliven the tedium of an election was enact- ed recently. The Liberals had engaged as a committee- room the front room on the ground floor of a private house, but had arranged not to take possession until shortly before the opening of the poll. Judge, then, of their dismay, when, upon coming within sight of their potential head- quarters, they discovered the upper windows to be entirely obscured with flaring scarlet bills proclaiming the benefits of Tariff Re- form and the virtues of Mr Marlay Samson Entering the premises, another shock await- ed them, for, beneath an engraving of Glad- stone had been pinned a copy of the Con- servative picture Free Trade," whilst ad- monitions to vote for Tariff Reform decorated many of the pictures. These latter were speedily removed, but the placards upstairs presented greater diffi- culty, inasmuch as the bedroom was in the occupation of two gentlemen lodgers who resolutely declined for a long time to remove their unwelcome decorations. Ultimately, however, they consented to do so, but as an act of grace, and under protest. The room utilised by the Liberals was tenanted by two Englishmen of strongly pro- nounced Conservative opinions. When asked if they objected to vacating the room for the day they agreed, but, being under the im- pression that it had been let over their heads," so to speak, were in a strongly resent- ful mood, and determined to get their own back," with the result already narrated. As a matter of fact, however, the room was not, we are assured, let until after their assent had been obtained, and, this having been vouch- ed for both by the landlady and by one of the leading Liberal officials, was accepted by them, and an incident which, whilst humor- ous to the general public, was far from pleas- ant to all concerned, was thus amicably smoothed over.
