The General Election


June 25, 1892
This is a little item from Walton intended for the perusal of the Conservative candidate, Mr. Stock“In his address Mr. Stock says that he yields to no man in a desire to suppress intemperance. How can he reconcile with the fact that his chairman, Mr. T. May Smith, is a brewer and publican; that his proposer, Mr. John Houlding, is a brewer and publican; that he chairman of Belmont-road Conservative Club, Mr. Duncan McLaren, is a brewer, and that his election agent, Mr. Edwin Berry, is solicitor to the Licensed Victuallers’ Association?”
