EXPENSES OF CANDIDATES Aggregate Estimated as High as $7,000,000. PROFESSIONS IN PARLIAMENT Ages of Members Kange From 23 to 84?Average is a Little Over 51 Years. BY WILLIAM E. CURTIS. Written for The Star ami the Chicago RecordHerald. When a majority of the house of commons no longer sustains the government; when the ministry cannot command enough votes to pass the laws they promise, and carry out their policy, the British parliamdnt nHI/inrns tho buMnut rnvipiiq a new prime minister is appointed and a r.ew election is ordered by "the clerk of the crown." a permanent official who has charge of the election machinery and supervises political contests at the polls. The present clerk of the crown is Sir Kenneth Muir-Macken| zie, who has held the office for many years. He is supposed to represent the king in protecting the sacred suffrages of his people. He prepares and publishes writs and summonses to newly created peers, makes out the appointments and commissions for newly-created commissioners and officials appointed by the king. He prepares and publishes all proclamations by his majesty; when there is a vacancy in the house of commons he is informed of the fact and immediately, or at his convenience. calls a new election. After the votes are polled and counted he is officially informed of the result; he receives all the returns and has the custody of all the balIsxto ,?.w* i-Arrl r.i f inn lL-to I r. IUIO, 11 uuun.t anu icgioiiui*uu i1010. 111 addition to these duties he keeps a record of laws that have passed parliament, makes out warrants and all other documents requiring the signature of the king and the impress of the great seal. Election Writs. Sir Kenneth Muir-Mackenzie signs writs for elections, but issues them in the king's name. They read: "Edward VII, by the grace of God, of the united kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and of the British dominions beyond < the seas, king, defender of the faith, to the mayor (or sheriff, as the case may be) of the city of London, "Greeting: We command you that, no tice of the time and place of election being first duly given, you do cause election to be made according to law of a member to serve In parliament for the city of London in the place of the Right Honorable John Smith, deceased, and that ycu do cause the name of such member when so elected, whether he be present or absent, to be certified to us in our chancery without delay. <; "Witness ourself at Westminster the 31st v day of October, in the sixth year of our J reign and in the year of Our Lord nineteen a hundred and six. (Signed) / "MUIK-MACKENZIE, A "Crown Office in Chancery, / "Palace of Westminster." fj The king of England formerly used to my terfere In the elections and tell the people n whom he wanted them to vote for, but such K partisanship would be fatal to any candiQ date today, so determined are the Britons x In resenting infringements of their rights. Q In 1553 King Edward VI sent a letter to A every sheriff and mayor in England comV manding them to not to permit any interA ference with the choice or election of canV didates, and it concluded by saying that he wanted "the most chiefest men in our \ realm for advice and counsel." Q For some reason or other the clerk of x the crown issues the calls for election In Q England, Scotland and Wales only. The x writs for Ireland are issued by the lord / chancellor and privy council at Dublin, who A use the king's name in the same way. x Election Expenses. ? There are 542 parliamentay districts in y Great Britain, which, with the 101 in IreA land, return 043 members of the house of < commons. h Returns of parliamentary elections are \ made by the mayors of cities and sheriffs 0 of boroughs to the clerk of the crown, who >. certifies them to the king and files them 0 away among his archives. The poll books X and ballots are kept for a year and a day / and are then destroyed, unless a contest A should require tlieir further preservation. ^ The returns are kept permanently. The <; files of the office of the clerk of the crown p extend back to the year 1275 and contain ithe certificate of every man elected to parliament since that date. The population of the United Kingdom is 43,217.087, which furnished 7,066,702 voters at the late election. The government pays f the cost of holding the election, which \ amounts to about $1,000,000. The private / expenses of candidates vary according to v the constituencies, but are very much larg\ er than In the United States. The aggre\ gate expenses of the candidates for parlla/ ment in England at a general election are t estimated as high as $7,000,000. 1 Every profession and occupation you can / imagine, every social stratum, every shade \ of political and religious opinion, is repre! sented in the house of commons, but what I strikes the attention of the American ob\ server most forcibly is the comparatively ) small number of lawyers. The members ( of that profession fill four-fifths of the seats ^ in our Congress and state legislatures, but ? less than one-fifth of the seats of the Brlt# ish house of commons. % Professions in Parliament.
