Uflliikal imb (tlcctioit nfdligtlta. MIDLOTHIAN.—It is expected that Mr. Gladstone will open his electoral campaign in Midlothian about the end of this month. Preparations are being made by the Edinburgh Trades Council and other public bodies to give the right honourable gentleman a grand reception. LIBERAL CONFERENCE.—A conference of Liberals was held in Glasgow, on Tuesday, at which several resolu- tions, in anticipation of the approaching general election, were passed. One of the resolutions favoured a reform of the county franchise and a redistribution of seats, and declared that Scotland is fairly entitled to an increased number of Parliamentary representives. Mr. Chamberlain, M.P., addressed a meeting in the even- ing, at which resolutions condemning the policy of the Government met with approval. ADDRESSES BY THE HOME SECRETARY.—The Home: Secretary attended a great Conservative gathering at Leigh, on Saturday, and was afterwards entertained to dinner. The right honourable gentleman made two speeches, and dealt with a variety of topics. He attri- buted the prevalent distress largely to the inflation of trade a few years ago, and over-production. There were, happily, signs, of better times. Speaking on Afghanistan, he said the Government had no wish to interfere with the internal affairs of that country, but they wanted to secure India. He repudiated the charge that the Government had followed an aggressive policy, and remarked that it was a charge which was not made: against them in other countries than England. As to the Zulu war, no one wished to go into it less than the Government, but he believed the results of that war would be hailed with the greatest satisfaction by those who had escaped from the tyranny of the Zulu King.— Mr. Cross also attended a Conservative meeting on Tuesday evening, at Clitheroe. In reply to a vote of confidence in her Majesty's Ministers, he defended their general policy, especially the means they had taken to preserve the prestige of the country abroad, and the re- cognition of the solemnity of Treaties. He asked that the Treaty of Berlin should be judged only by its re- suits, and as to the accusations brought against the Government with regard to the annexation of Cyprus and other matters, he said they were small details in the main scheme, not worthy of prolonged consideration, He affirmed that if the Opposition had been in office they could not have taken any contrary course. If they had done so an indignant country would have hurled them from office.
