THE GENERAL ELECTION.

THE GENERAL ELECTION. A NECK-AND-NECK RACE. Apart, altogether, from the momentous constitutional and political issues involved, the General Election now drawing to a close will live in the annals of posterity by reason of the marked degree of uncertainty which has, from day to day, existed as to the posi- tion of the several parties. In sporting par- lance it has been a neck-and-neck race. Eliminating—as an unknown quantity-the Nationalists, and classifying the Liberal and the Labour members together as supporters of the Goverment of the day, the public has witnessed the constitution of the new Legis- lature fluctuating in a manner which only be likened to the eccentric behaviour of a steam guage. Sometimes the Government, some- times the opposition has been in the ascend- ant, but never to any marked degree, whilst occasions have been frequent when the two parties balanced evenly in the national scales. As the contest draws to a close the odds are, of course, in favour of the Liberal- Labour coalition, but, in the face of the re- vulsion of public feeling which has occurred in many constituencies, he would be a rash man indeed who denied the ultimate possibi- lity-as distinct from the probability—of a dead heat. Already the leader writers of daily papers of either political colour are consider- ing what the future holds in store in the event I of such a contingency, whilst a suggestion for the formation of a non-party ministry under the leadership of Lord Rosebury has actually been mooted. The position of parties as we go to press this Thursday morning is as follows — Position of Parties Total to be Elected 670 Total Members Elected 608 Liberals Unionist Lab'r Nationalists 23225539 72 1 1 1
