We were misled by a mistake in the Times' report

of the poll in Mid-Surrey, when we said last Saturday that Mr. Napier Higgins, Q.C., polled even fewer votes than his Liberal col- league, Mr. Stern, who was not a very successful orator. The Times (which is copied by the Guardian) interchanged the pot. hugs for Mr. Stern and Mr. Napier Higgins. It was Mr. Napier Higgins who polled the larger vote, 5,776 ; and Mr. Stern whek polled 5,727,-49 fewer.
