[To THZ EDITOR OF THI " SPIICTATOZ."3 SIR,—" Frederick Pollock "

at the bottom of a letter made me read. I too would support Lord Hugh Cecil if I had a vote. But if I understand Sir Frederick aright, he would support the opponent of a Tariff Reform candidate, even if in so doing he voted for the most pestilent Socialist or Home-ruler. This surely is Free-trade gone mad.—I am, Sir, &c., C. MUNRO.
