"What have you to say to she demanded. "What explanations have you to "None." he answered. "Because you don't care what I think of you. You were willing to give me up to these people, to let me romanti- cize about honor'and duty, about my efforts to make that creature a man, and you knew all the time it was only the money they were "I shouldn't he replied.

But, 01 course, this is far from the truth. Indeed, the bribing f voters .is one of the most vener- able of English customs. In the days oi Queen Elisabeth a candidate nam- ed Long took a course even more simple and direct, it he bribed the returning officer to declare him -elect- ed. But exposure follow-d, Long lest his seat, and the returning officer was fined and imprisooned. In 1623 another candidate was committed to the Tower for buying votes. Some interesting, stories of bribery in English elections in the distant and recent past have appeared off and on of late in the London Chronicle, and some of the occurrences rob elec- tion performances in Ontario in our own day of all claim to originality. Our bribers and corrupters have en- joyed an evil eminence they have not seem but clumsy, no- vices. Bribery first became a recog- nized mode of securing votes in the reign of diaries I., but was carried' tr> a higher perfection in the time of Til. "Tf." ne wrote to his c'.url adviser, Duke uf Northum- berland requires some gold pills for the el ction, it would wr- rig rot to satisfy him." In an election in Oxforshire in the eiahi-.-'enth century the sheriff return- ed candidates as having 'been el ctt-d, and parliament had to de- cide. 'After many days spent in tie- two were declared elected. It was of this election that Walpole wrote. "A knowing lawyer said to- day that what with purchasing ures. votes, and carrying on the elec- tion and petition, will not- pay the whole expense." But -even this was exceeded by the Yorkshire election of 1807, in which Mr. Wilber force was one of the successful -can- didates. The election lasted sev.-n- tLvn days, and cost the candidates half a million. Wilberforce's bill ran into which had to be defray- ed 'by public subscription, Mr. Crocker was standing for tho little Irish borough of Down in 18.1.2, and frankly wrote Peel that there were sixty-two votes there sale, and it woould take to buy en- ough of them to win the seat. He wa? prepared .to pay of "na- tural expenses" incident to the con- test, 'but he insisted in his letter to Peel, "with regard to the money for votes, that I expect from the govern- ment." 'Money was scarce: Crocker did not get what he asked, and was not- elected. But for six years he j worried Peel for jobs he had promis-; ed to voters. A member once complained to J. Bjright when an appeal to the conn- try was talked of. "My he said, "has already cost me and there is that I have yet to pay." Liquor a very serious item of (those old-time unire'formefcl expenses. For an election dinner in Forfarshire in 1830 the Hon. S. Worthy paid: Ginger beer, bran- dy. champagne, claret, gin, 20s.; ale, 16s.; brandy toddy gin toddy, dinner, 10s.; Maderia. 2s. Frum, July 21 to September 15 his bill from the same landlord amounted 5s. item, with the exception of that 10s. for dinner and 7s. Gd. for suppers, being for liquor. The passing of the old electoral cor- ruption was sincerely mourned by many a free and independent voter... In the Times of May 10, 1831, there is a story of a London police con- stable who asked his inspector for leave to go into the country to vote for an anti-Reform candidate. The inspector asked how much he would make on it. "'Only and the pay- ment of my said the con- stable, and in rjply to the inspector's expression of surprise, he complain- ed that "they don't come down now like they used to do. I have had as much as for my vote, and never but now I am glad to get The inspector, in giving- him leave, said he supposed this would be the last time he would be wanted to vote. "I hope not ejaculated the policeman, with a long-drawn sigh; "and if that Reform bill passes it will be a sad loss to me and my freemen." Nor are to suppose that the squandering of money and the .influ- encing votes is a thing "of past in British elections. Although elec- tion expenses are, now limited by with us in is still plenty of room outside the sta- tute for spending money. In the Brit- ish elections in 1S80 there were do- ings that made anything in the way of corrupt money spending that we had in Canada afr-the same time look tame aJid amateurish by comparison. A favorite device was the buying of flags. First 'the flag and then the pole were bought- of voters at fancy prices, then a. site on "which to erect the was rented from a voter, a number of voters were hired to put it up, and finally another detach- ment were engaged to protect it. There was one glorious pole refer- red to in the hearing of an election petition from which twenty flags floated, while at the masthead was a huge penant inscribed, "Our Illus- trious followed by a list of names. This particular pole cost twenty-five guineas, took thirty men three days to erect, and was guarded by. two sets of watchers, each of six men, who received two pounds apiece In another case a witness confessed that he had. received three pounds for "watching" a "watching" consisting in looking at it when he went to bed and when he got up.
