THE HOLBORN ELECTION. MRS GLADSTONE AND EARL COMPTON'S CANDIDATURE. A meeting of ladies was held on Saturday, in the Holborn Town-hall, in furtherance of the candidature of Earl Compton for the representa- tion flf tbe constituency in Parliament. Mrs W. E. Gladstone, who presided, and who was loudly cheered, speaking in support of the Gladstoaian candidate (Earl Compton), said:—Ladies and gentlemen,—Having had the honour of taking the chair as your president, it is most cheering to me to see so large an assembly gathered together, for I take it as a sign that you recognise the national importance of the Holborn contest, and that you are determined that no effort shall be lacking on your part which can contribute to a Liberal success. I have always pointed out that if the final victory is to be won our exertions must not flag, and at such a moment as now 1 need hardly repeat this. You have a great opportunity; you have, indeed, a very great opportunity. You recognise what a contested election means at this moment, and what an advantage it is that Lord Compton should be your candidate. He stands before us to conduct the contest on behalf of the Liberal and Radical party. (Cheers.) Now, my friends, we have a great and a noble cause, and a candidate whom we are proud to tight for. (Cheers,) What further spur can we possibly need t (Hear.) And here is my dear friend Lady Compton, whoir. I am so glad to introduce to you to-day, and who heartily shares her husband's great exertions in our anxious cause. (Cheers.) You will have read — or, if not, you ought to do — my husband's letter. (Hear, hear.) In that letter you will have seen how high Lord Compton stands in my husband's opinion, and you will understand how, in selecting him for your candidate, you are helping and encouraging not only my husband, but also furthering the causa of right and justice—I mean, of course, in Ireland, and also in the United Kingdom. (Hear, hear.) Aud it is that gives me courage to appear to-day and take my part in the great work which lies before us. (Cheers.)' Mr COBB moved, the Dowager Lady SAND- HURST seconded, and it was agreed :— That this meeting of Liberal desire to express the fullest confidence In Lord Compton, and, recognising the importance of the present contest ill Holborn, pledge themselves to use in the most energetic man- ner every legitimate means to secure his return as a representative ot the Holborn Division of Finsbury. A vote of thanks to Mrs Gladstone closed the meeting. -u_
