The meio fact of tholr holding their own

appeal to the country. To nciitiall/c the

must win lilteen scats. To socuio a
working majoilty they need at leist twenty-
fi\e , niidtoohtnln these they must do bottei
than lilthcito. The significance of jestciday's
elections is that they were fought in constit
uencies supposed to contain the strongest
Irish vote. The results indicate either that
the Hi/not this lilsh contingency has been
overestimated , 01 tint the abstentions ol the
Kugllsh liberals aio seilous. Ona scat was
Rained by the Irish vote In Llveipool , and
two In Manchester. But , though the Irish
were presumed to bj strong in I'lestou , licrk-
enhcnd , Holton and St. Helens , they failed
to wrest the scat from the unionists. In Sal-

as a dlstilct , contains moio Iilslimcn

Blmply by tlio llhcial abstention horn the
polls. Taking alHho seats jet contested , and
compaiing the polling with that of last No
vember , the nopulai vote shows a net gain ol
10,010 lot the unionist * , n fallingott ot 15 pin
cent In the liberr.l vote , and a falling off ot 10
per cent In the loiy vote. The total diminu
tion of the vote on both skies causes
general astonishment. It is accounted
lor paitly by the Mioitness of the
lipilod allowed for the electoral cam
paign , pailly by the n ual changes of
icsldcnco among the vvoiklngmcn , who Imo
had oppoitmiltj toieglstcr anew , and these
liavo to lose their \otcs , and paitly by the ab-
htcntlon of llbcial \ otes , as bufoin inciitioncd.
Moic than to any of these causes , however ,
the dccieascdoto Is duo to the fact , now IP-
vralcd , that the masses aioless Intoicsted In
this contest than are the educated classes. It
Is foil by many that Gladstone may have
inado a mistake. In n purely political sense ,
in basing his appeal to the countiy too ex
clusively on high moral and sentimental
giounds. The unionists have taken advant-
agn of this to api oil to the pockets and stomachs
achs of thermal classes , \vho are naunally
( iladslono's allies. It tactics like these
prove as potent as the union
ist leadeis expect , the Glndstonlans
tuesent claim , that yesterday's Indications
will be conliadlctcd by the results in the
iigilciiltuial distilcts , may bo too singulnc.
Assuming that all the reasonable calculations
of the conseMatlvc-tinlonlsts coalition are
fulfilled , their majority will htill bo very
small , and It Is now icpoitrdthat unless the
vpidlct of the countiy Is decisively azalust

that any unfavorable results In the present

Slngoi will have to console himself with the

The ttlals ol Heinilt and Cliiisticiiacn , who

made an unpleasant impression. The les
