THE ENCI.ISH KLECTIOX. The position of ihe parties iu Kng land last night after the second day's: pollings in the general election is us follows: Government coalition?Liberals, 87; labor, 14; nationalists, 10. Total, 117. Oppoaition?Ur.ionists. 116. The rcsults japterday merely con_in the opinion formed.lhat from the results of Saturday\s contest that the uniouiats now have DO possible hope ol replacing tho liberal government in power. The only question rema;tiiug i? whether the liberals will return with a larger or a smaller majority. J'o gain a bare majority in the new parliament the utiioiiists must make a netgainof 'i'2 seats. Thus far, wiih 130 pollings. they gave a "et gain of only 5 aeata. They havo gained 11 and the liberals 6 seats. The <nm by the utrtontata 0H Saturday was 7, while tlie liberals gained 4. Ye-terday the nnionists gained I and the liberals f, seats. A eontinuation at this rate of progress would fitllill tbe nnionist predietion tbat tbe Aeqoitli cabinet wouid come back witb a greatlv weakened majority and would be more than ever deperxlent wpoti tlnpir Irtali i and labor allies. On tbe whole It seems likely that tb new House of Commons will meet arifii the position of the parties practical I .? : unchanged. The i|iiestioii will tben arise whether the king will feel justified iu gtvim* guarantees for tbe creation of liberal peers to force the veto bill through tbe House of Lords.
