'Bill The Giant-killer', 1884. Lord Salisbury, the Conservative Leader in the House of Lords, peers over the battlements at the Franchise Bill which, dressed as a herald, noisily demands entry. This relates to the Liberal's new Franchise Bill which had occupied much of the parliamentary time in the Commons during the past few months. At the beginning of November 1884, the Bill had a third reading in the Commons and was then sent for consideration to the Lords. From Punch, or the London Charivari, November 22, 1884.
