Spencer Compton Cavendish, Marquis of Hartington, British Liberal statesman, 1900.Artist: Russell & Sons

Spencer Compton Cavendish, Marquis of Hartington, British Liberal statesman, 1900. Cavendish (1833-1908) became leader of the Liberal opposition in 1875, and after Disraeli's Conservative government fell in 1880 he was invited to form a government. Instead he opted to serve under Gladstone's leadership, holding the offices of Secretary of State for India (1880-1882) then Secretary of State for War (1882-1885). His differences with Gladstone over Irish Home Rule compelled Cavendish to refuse to serve in his government in 1886 and become leader of the Liberal Unionists. He succeeded as Duke of Devonshire in 1891 and entered the House of Lords.

Approaching Dissolution, 1875. Artist: Joseph Swain

Approaching Dissolution, 1875. Mrs Disraeli on the right runs a Baby Farm. Huddled in the corner behind her are all the Baby Bills. Mrs Hartington, the new Liberal Leader in opposition suggests they be put out of their misery. The bills include Judicature, Land Transfer, Agricultural Holdings, National Debt, Supply, etc. Mrs Disraeli sees no need to take any action because the end of the current Session of Parliament was actually only a couple of weeks away. This cartoon also reflects on the Baby Farms that had for some years caused much concern. Possibly the worst example of the baby farming trade was reported by Charles Dickens in 1849. In an article entitled The Paradise at Tooting, Dickens brought out the terrible conditions that pertained at one particular farm managed by a man called Drouet. Although the risks to the children had been notified, the conditions were so poor that 126 children died in one single outbreak of cholera. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 31, 1875
