The Eddisbury Radioala must be in a more de- plorable muddle than we had suspected, through their precipitate "adoption" of Mr. Stanley as their Parliamentary candidate two years before any necessity had arisen. In January next it will be two years since Mr. Stanley was formally adopted by the Eddisbury Liberal Association, and a good deal of money must have been spent in the promotion of the candidature in the interim. Meetings alone have a habit of running away with a considerable sum, to say nothing of the costs of organisation, so it will be no surprise if drastic measures of economy are taken for the I protection of the candidate's interests. The Act, we know, is exceedingly stingy in the allowance of election expenses, especially for a widely- I scattered division like Eddisbury. Something obviously must be done to curtail the expense of running the candidato during this extraordinarily protracted period, and some idea of the straits in which the Liberal Executive find themselves may be gathered from the new departure, an- nounced for the approaching Frodsham meeting, of charging for admission to the reserved seats. It is only a modest impost of a shilling a head, for that favoured part of the ,hat1, we know, still every little helps, and if only ten or a dozen people could be prevailed upon to buy tickets, there would be some contribution to t-ho printing bill at all events. The institution of a charge for admission to a Radical meeting is certainly an innovation in Eddisbury, and its result will be watched with some interest. Al- though Mr. Stanley is a firm advocate of Free Trade for the country, he evidently is no be- liever in free admission to political meetings.
