Political Cartoons - "The Fight Is Over Boys", 1874

This cartoon, 'The fight is over boys', depicts the result of the contest for the Inverness Burghs seat at the general election of 1874. The constituency comprised the burghs of Inverness, Nairn, Forres, and Fortrose. The central character is saying 'Come on', whiile the others reply, 'I give in' and 'I'm off home'

The result of the election was:
Charles Fraser MacKintosh (independent Liberal) 1134
Eneas MacKintosh of Raigmore (Liberal) 879
MacKintosh of Holme (Conservative) 16.

In the election as a whole the Liberals, led by William Gladstone, won a majority of the votes cast, but Benjamin Disraeli's Conservatives secured a majority of seats in the House of Commons, largely because they won a number of uncontested seats
