CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

towards trade unions, and generally in the great outburst of legislative activity during Gladstone's first ministry, a period as fertile in legislation as the period immediately preceding 1867 had been barren.
Among the Acts passed during that ministry was the Ballot Act, 1872, which introduced into parliamentary elections the system of election by secret ballot. Vote by ballot had been one of the famous " six points " of the Charter of 1848, and proposals for establishing it had been annually introduced by private members, but, before the ministry of 1869, had never been supported or proposed by the government. The Act was not passed without a long and hard fight, and then only as an experimental measure, to remain in force for one year only, unless renewed. It has been renewed annually ever since by the Expiring Laws Continuance Act of each year, but curiously enough, though it was passed nearly forty years ago, and though its lapse would throw the whole law of elections into confusion, it has not even yet found its place on the statute book as a permanent measure. It put an end to the venerable ceremonies of election at the old county court-a very different institution from the modern judicial county court-and, incidentally, by altering the form of the writ for elections, removed the distinction between knights, citizens and burgesses, grouping them all as " members."
