Liberal Treachery, PP8
TO THE UNFORTUNATE POOR
The pauper in the Workhouse
No Pension has to-day,
Because, "your good friend Hardy" says,
The Nation could not pay the extra sum to let such poor
Enjoy their tail of life,
And have again a cottage home in comfort with the wife.
When good Balfour tried to bring a better change about,
Your Member with his LIB'RAL FRIENDS
Rose up and "chucked it out";
For why, they said, should pauper poor
(And this I beg you'll note),
Be treated just like other poor-
"THE PAUPER HAS NO VOTE"!
Vote for Goldsmith
and the Old-Age Pension for ALL THE AGED POOR.

To The ELECTORS of
the NORTHERN DIVISION of LINCOLNSHIRE.
GENTLEMEN, The Honorable CHARLES ANDERSON
PELHAM again offers himself as your Representative in Parliament
at the next Election. In doing so, he has no private views to gratify:
he stands on the ground of his tried and unremitting attention to
you interests in Parliament, of his public opinions, and his own
private respectability and character, which are sufficient pledges
of his supporting all attainable improvements in the Country.
It is MR. PELHAM'S anxious wish that it
should be clearly understood by all Parties, that he is wholly
unconnected with any other Candidate; and that he is decidedly opposed
to any alteration in the CORN LAWS
that may prove injurious to the AGRICULTURAL interests of
The Committee hope that the knowledge you
have of his principles and conduct will induce you again to put
him in the honorable situation of your Representative.
Gentlemen who favour Mr. Pelham with their
Interest, are requested to address their communications to his Committee
at the King's Head Inn, Louth; or to any of this Professional Agents
By order of the Committee, MARM. ALINGTON.
Louth, 18th July, 1832.
Yours in Chains, PP10
To the DEPENDENT
ELECTORS OF LINDSEY DIVISION.
When under oppression, who will not complain?
Our new Candidate Sir R. Sheffield, has at last put himself
fairly in the lists, and his opinions also,--cheer up!
Dear companions in Slavery!
We are soon to be free:--I would gladly say now is the time,
but our Landlords must know best;--we have no right to think
for ourselves, or feel oppression; - I am compelled to groan
this in secret, or I should lose my Farm.
My old Friend, poor Sir W. Ingilby, has nothing but
our hearts, our votes go elsewhere;-
I am an Old Man, and ONE VOTE I WILL GIVE HIM IF I LOSE MY
FARM FOR IT. I attended
a Sir William meeting the other day at Alford, and was well pleased
with the remarks of his Friends, as well as their unanimity, when
oh! I blush to write
it! A Lusty Champion
of Sir Robert's in answer to a remark, roared out: "it's a Lie,"
"Its False," bless me! How
the company were astonished, they seemed to think, as I thought,
that nothing but Truth had been spoken, but I am a dependent
voter and have no right to judge; yet it grieved my heart
to hear a Gentleman by Profession, use such language in so respectable
a company and not offer an apology for his rudeness.
Yours in Chains,
A BROTHER VOTER.
13th, 1832. H. Hurton, Printer, Mercer-Row, Louth.
Awhile ago the CONSCIENCES of the greater part of the Canvassers and
Agents of Sir Robt. S-d Bart, also the Temper and Discretion of the
whole of the said Party. It
is said of Sir Robert's "Lusty Champion" entirely lost the whole of
his, at the Windmill in Alford, on the 10th of July last.
As these severe losses operate very much against Sir Robert's
success, it is hoped that the other parties will in courtesy cease
Canvassing for awhile. Large
Rewards will be given on the restoration of any of the above requisites,
(except those of the "Lusty Champion," they being considered by him
of little value). Apply
to MOTHER SHIPTON, opposite the Town Pump Alford, or any other of
Sir Robert's Officious Friends.
Instantly, 100 new canvassers for Sir Robert to take the places
of the Gentry who have suffered such losses as totally incapacitate
them for further service. None
need apply whose consciences are at all tender.
Wages good providing the character fits the Office.
The few Managers who feel themselves at all
competent, take this opportunity of saying, that they should be glad
to dispose of the Interest (principal there is none) of Sir Robert
and his party in this concern, it would be offered as the Drapers
say, a DECIDED BARGAIN. Application as above, or to those who hold Sir Robert's Subscription
Purse, (they being afraid that its contents will be expended to no
purpose that will answer their ends,) of to Sir Robert himself poor
fellow, who has every reason to be heartily sick of Job.
More trouble still,-another serious loss,-an active and zealous
young Collegian has disappeared, he was seen as late as Saturday Night
last at Hogsthorpe, with a Pink Ribbon at his Buttonhole, but made
a Bolt on hearing the Crier announce, "No Sheffield Wasters

Shameful Treatment, PP12
AGE PENSIONS ACT. Shameful
Treatment of the AGED POOR by the RADICAL PARTY.
Every honourable Politician readily admits
that the Old Age Pensions Act (except where it is Defective and Unjust)
is practically MR. CHAMBERLAIN'S MEASURE, and was passed by
the aid of ALL PARTIES in the House of Commons.
The Supporters of the present Government are, however, trying
to make Political Capital out of it by PROFESSING SYMPATHY with the
Are they Straightforward or even Honest in
doing this? Read the
following and JUDGE FOR YOURSELVES:-
Section 3 of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1908,
was Specially inserted by the Radical Government to DEBAR ALL
POOR PEOPLE in receipt of Parochial Relief from the right to an Old
In order to remedy this flagrant injustice
to our AGED POOR, Mr. W. C. BRIDGEMAN, CONSERVATIVE M.P. for Oswestry,
on June 29th, 1908, when the Bill was before the House
of Commons, MOVED AN AMENDMENT to the effect thatALL POOR OLD MEN
AND WOMEN in receipt of Out-door should HAVE AND OLD AGE PENSION.
148 MEMBERS of the House of Commons, headed by MR. A. J. BALFOUR,
M.P., VOTED FOR IT.
On the other hand, 256 Radical Members of
the House of Commons, at the instigation of Mr, Lloyd George, including
MR. G. A. HARDY, M.P. (STOWMARKET); VOTED AGAINST THE PENSION BEING
GRANTED TO THESE POOR OLD PEOPLE, and they are consequently DISQUALIFIED
by the deliberate vote of the Radical majority in the House of Commons
FROM BEING INCLUDED in the List of Pensioners.
