Excerpt: The Barkston Ash by-election, 1905 was a parliamentary by-election held for the British House of Commons constituency of Barkston Ash, then in the West Riding of Yorkshire, on 13 October 1905. The by-election was caused by the death, on 18 September 1905, of the sitting Conservative MP Sir Robert Gunter. Gunter had been seriously ill with neuritis and phlebitis since June 1905 and had been unconscious for several days before his death. Because of ill health Gunter had told his local party in 1903 that he would be standing down as MP. They had then selected George Lane-Fox, an Eton and Oxford educated barrister and a member of the West Riding Country Council to be their candidate. Barkston Ash was a safe Tory seat. It had never been represented by a Liberal or Radical. Gunter had been unopposed at the 1900 general election and also in1895 but the political tide seemed to be flowing against the government of Arthur Balfour. In 1903 they had lost five seats in by-elections, in 1904 another seven and six seats had been gained by the Liberals in by-elections so far in 1905. Against this encouraging background the Liberals had already selected Joseph Ormond Andrews a barrister from Leeds to fight the next election and they adopted Andrews as their by-election candidate. There was speculation that an Independent candidate, Henry Liversidge, who might be best described as a Lib-Lab and who had earlier in 1905 announced an intention to contest the next election, stand as a candidate on the platform of tariff reform. However it was soon reported that no Tariff Reform League or other candidate would be standing on that issue. ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=2286455
