Mr. Lowe's claim to represent the University of London has

been formally put forward since our last issue by a number of graduates, chiefly medical, who affect to make light of Mr. Lowe's not being a London University man. By a letter from Mr. R. N. Fowler, the head of the small knot of Conservatives in the University, to our contemporary the Standard, it would appear that Mr. Lowe is not unlikely to obtain the Conservative (as well as a small part of the Liberal) vote. He has certainly done much to deserve it. The University would never have had a seat at all if his advice not to reopen the subject of Reform had been followed. Mr. J. R. Quoin, Q.C., has also issued an able address, and Mr. Bagehot has stated his political views in a masterly letter, which will gain him new repute.
