 CONSTITUENCY ABOLISHED 1885 
Thomas Power O'Connor, MP for Galway 1880-1885 and Scotland (Liverpool) 
1885-1929, and the "Battle of the House of Commons" 27 July 1893
Probably the worst example of physical violence in the House of Commons (apart from the
assassination of Spencer Perceval) occurred on 27 July 1893, at the end of the Committee
stage of the Home Rule Bill. It appears to have been sparked off by Thomas Power O'Connor,
in response to a speech by Joseph Chamberlain in which he had compared William Gladstone to  
Herod. O'Connor then called Chamberlain a "Judas" and mayhem ensued. The following report 
appeared in "The Yorkshire Herald" the following day:-
'VIOLENT SCENES IN PARLIAMENT - The Press Association states that the calling of the first 
of the series of the closure divisions last night was signalised by one of the most violent and 
disorderly scenes which has been witnessed in the House of Commons during the past 
generation. When Mr. [Joseph] Chamberlain's speech was brought to an abrupt close at ten
o'clock, his comparison of Mr. Gladstone to Herod was greeted with hisses by the Liberals and
uproar from the Irish benches, with loud and repeated cries of "Judas." Amidst the prevailing
noise the Chairman called the division. Mr. Vicary Gibbs [MP for St. Albans] putting on his hat
and returning to his seat as required, in rising to a point of order after a division was called, 
was observed to be addressing himself to the chairman presumably with an idea of reporting
what he regarded as a disorderly expression. There was so much noise and confusion that the
chairman could not hear him and took no formal notice of the appeal. Failing in this effort the
Conservative members after a hurried exchange of words resolved to keep their seats until the
point in dispute was settled. Among those who thus remained on the front Opposition bench
were Sir John Gorst [MP for Cambridge University], Sir Edward Clarke [Plymouth] and Mr.
[Edward] Carson [Dublin University], behind whom sat a large body of Conservatives. Meantime
some Ministerialists and others had gone into the lobby to record their votes, but the majority
lingered in order to await the upshot of the impending disturbance. Whilst the turmoil was in
progress Mr. [John William] Logan [MP for Harborough], who had crossed over from the front
bench below the gangway, was seen to be in somewhat excited conversation with Mr. Carson.
In order to put an end to this apparent altercation, Sir Wm. Walrond [MP for Tiverton], one of
the Conservative Whips, advanced and endeavoured to lead Mr. Logan out of the House. That
hon. member resented the intervention, and quickly planted himself on the front Opposition
bench beside Mr. Carson. No sooner had he done so than Mr. Hayes Fisher [MP for Fulham],
who sat behind him, leaned forward and vigorously attempted to push Mr. Logan out of the
place which he had taken. When the Irish members saw one of their Liberal friends being thus
ejected from the place their blood was instantly up, and instead of proceeding into the 
division lobby they swayed towards the Tory benches, and a free fight broke out so suddenly
that it was almost impossible even for those who watched the scene from the Press gallery
above to say who struck the first blow. Certain it was that the tall figure of Col. [Edward]
Saunderson [MP for Armagh North] was conspicuous striking out, as he afterwards stated, in
self defence against some of the Irish members who were being pushed forward from behind.
One of the most prominent of the latter group was Mr. [Eugene] Crean [MP for Ossory], who
was the subject of at least one violent blow from Col. Saunderson. The gallant Colonel was not
without active supporters, but most of those around endeavoured to restrain him, just as Mr.
W[illiam] O'Brien [MP for Cork City] and other Nationalist members surrounded Mr. Crean, who
was seen to be struggling desperately with them, and endeavouring to get at the Colonel.
Other members took part in the extraordinary melee, but it was almost impossible amid the
excitement and jostling and confusion to identify them or apportion the exact share taken by
each member. One stalwart figure which could be distinguished amid the tumult was Mr. 
[Thomas] Condon [MP for Tipperary East], but whether he was intervening as a peacemaker
or otherwise it was not easy at the moment to discern. Whilst the fight was in progress the
Sergeant-at-Arms [Sir Henry David Erskine] and Mr. [Edward] Marjoribanks [MP for Berwick-
shire] interposed with most anxious efforts to restore order, but their endeavours were for
some time in vain. The Sergeant-at-Arms next strove to induce members who thronged the
floor of the House to leave for the division lobby, and some few yielded to his persuasions,
but the majority lingered with a desire to see how the strange episode would end.
'Meantime Mr. [George] Bartley [MP for Islington North] shouted out a suggestion that the 
Speaker should be at once sent for, and he was supported on the Conservative benches by
many other cries for the Speaker. Whilst all this was going on the fighting had abated, and Mr.
Vicary Gibbs made one more attempt to appeal to the Chairman. His immediate neighbour, Mr.
[Thomas] Gibson Bowles [MP for King's Lynn], forming a speaking trumpet with his hands,
shouted out a similar appeal in the tones of one accustomed to give commands at sea in 
stormy weather. Not to be restrained, Mr. Gibbs left his seat and moved to the front 
Opposition bench near the table, and at last succeeded in making himself auditable to the
Chairman. The bulk of the Conservative party with some few of their leaders still retained their
places and refused to leave the House for the division. In view of this state of affairs the
Chairman suspended the division, although some members had already recorded their votes,
and ordered the doors to be opened quickly. Mr. Gladstone and other members who had been
in the division lobbies trooped back into the House and the Speaker was sent for. Mr. [Arthur]
Balfour [MP for Manchester East], who had left the House with the intention to take no part in
the division, also returned, and then upon the return of the Speaker, who was cheered, there
followed the explanations and statements which will be found duly recorded in our Parliament-
ary report. The original division was called at ten o'clock, but it was a quarter to eleven before
the Committee was resumed after the Speaker's dignified intervention, so that the scene - an
unprecedented one - occupied three-quarters of an hour.
'The violent fighting was the universal subject of talk in the lobbies, and members of all parties
expressed their deepest regret that the reputation of the House of Commons should have been
lowered by scenes such as have had no parallel during the whole of the present reign, if not for 
a much longer period. No one was seriously hurt during the melee, but several members 
complained of minor injuries, one having suffered a bruise on the face, another had a swollen
nose, and a third damaged knuckles. It was generally agreed by those who witnessed the 
whole exciting episode that the physical encounter did not directly result from the cries of 
"Judas," but from what the Irish Nationalist members regarded as the rough treatment of Mr. 
Logan when he got into altercation with Mr. Carson and sat down on the front Opposition 
bench. It was stated that Mr. Logan when he stood on the floor of the House was assailed 
with the cry "You are a gang of gaggers." At one time it was greatly feared that the fighting 
might be resumed in the lobbies, but some precautions were taken to prevent this, and these
were assisted by the rapidity with which the subsequent divisions succeeded each other. At 
the time of the row all the space allotted to the public was crowded, and contrary to all 
custom there was loud hissing from the Strangers' Gallery when the disturbance was at its 
height.
'A later telegram states: Mr. Logan, M.P., has tonight made a statement to the lobby repres-
entatives of the Press Association on the subject of the disturbance. The hon. member said:
I came into the House at three minutes to ten o'clock. I went into the side gallery. After the
question had been put by the Chairman I went down behind the Speaker's chair, and was 
walking down the House to record my vote in the division lobby. As I did so Mr. Vicary Gibbs
moved from his seat to the front Opposition bench, and I stopped to hear him. When I did so
Mr. Hayes Fisher howled at me repeatedly. I took no notice until he shouted my name and
called out, "Go to the bar, get out." I then walked from where I was standing to the end of the
table and said to Mr. Fisher, "You are not the Chairman. I decline to obey your orders." Mr.
Carson then shouted "get out; you are a gang of gaggers." I replied "Mr. Carson, I did not
address a word to you, and you have no business to make such an impertinent observation
to me." He replied, "Clear out of that, you are out of order standing there." I could soon put
myself in order by sitting down, and I sat down beside him, not for a moment intending to
cause any row whatever. Immediately I was pushed out of my seat by Mr. Hayes Fisher, who
seized my collar from behind, whilst Sir E[llis] Ashmead-Bartlett [MP for Ecclesall] seized me
in front, but I never raised my hand against one of them and would not do so."
'Our Parliamentary correspondent telegraphs:- The abnormal quiet which had prevailed up to
ten o'clock when the closure of the remaining clauses began was followed by the most 
astounding disturbance which has ever outraged the decorum of Parliament in the memory of
the present generation. Members who had not paired re-assembled in force, and there was not
less than five hundred present. Mr. Chamberlain had the last word in the debate, and declared
that never since the days of Herod had there been such blind adulation as that of the 
followers of Mr. Gladstone. After the division was called, and when some few members had
already left the House for the lobby, Mr. T.P. O'Connor was heard crying "Judas, Judas,"
directing the epithet to Mr. Chamberlain by placing his hand to the side of his mouth in plebian
fashion. Mr. Vicary Gibbs was making his way to a vacant place in the front Opposition bench
beside Mr. Carson to complain to the Chair, when Mr. Logan pushed into the vacant place. He
was hastily collared by Mr. Hayes Fisher and another member and hustled. Next moment all 
that quarter was turmoil. Mr. Crean and Colonel Saunderson were exchanging blows wildly.
Several other opponents became combatants. Heavy blows were struck. Colonel [Thomas]
Waring [MP for Down North], Mr. Burdett Coutts [Westminster], and Sir E. Ashmead-Bartlett 
were among those on the one side or the other side. Mr. Wm. O'Brien, Mr. T[imothy] Healy [MP 
for Louth County North], Mr. [James] Gilhooly [Cork County South West], and Mr. [William] 
Field [Dublin St.Patrick's] were in the thick of the fight. Mr. T.P. O'Connor tried vainly to act as 
peacemaker. Sir R[ichard] Paget [MP for Wells] was knocked down. While Col. Saunderson was
endeavouring to raise him his feet came in contact with some one's face. Dr. [Charles] Tanner
[MP for Cork County Mid] arrived rather late, and leaped over the benches and was soon in
the midst of the fray. Mr. Marjoribanks and Mr. H[erbert] Gladstone [MP for Leeds West] were
trying to act as pacificators. Mr. T[homas] W. Russell [MP for Tyrone South] was being held
down on the one side and Mr. T. Healy on the other. Mr. Gladstone sat calmly in his place while
the scrimmage was going on. It lasted nearly three minutes. The Speaker was then called in, 
and "progress" was formally reported to him by the Chairman of Committees. The Speaker
suggested that the leaders of the House could possibly offer some explanation of what had
occurred. Mr. Gladstone, rather clumsily for him, and with evident pain, gave a diluted version
of the incident. Mr. Balfour followed, Then came explanations and contradictions. It was again
becoming hot when the authority of the Speaker prevailed, and his recommendation to let the
affair pass into oblivion was adopted. Successive divisions followed in the ordinary course.'
Archibald Noel Skelton, MP for Perth 1922-1923 and 1924-1929
and Scottish Universities 1931-1935
Skelton was one of four men during the twentieth century who were posthumously elected
to Parliament. The other three were Thomas Higgins (Galway North 1906), Sir Edward
Taswell Campbell (Bromley 1945) and Leslie Pym (Monmouth 1945). For further information
on each of these cases, see the notes at the foot of the page which contain the various 
constituencies.
At the time of the general election in November 1935, Skelton was terminally ill with cancer.
He died on 22 November 1935, three days before the declaration of the poll, at which he 
was returned posthumously. 
The following report is from 'The Times' of 23 November 1935:-
'The death yesterday of Mr. Skelton, Under-Secretary for Scotland, creates a most unusual
position. He was a Unionist candidate for one of the three Scottish Universities seats, and
polling had actually closed before his death, although the result will not be declared until
Monday………It has been decided that the election must continue, and the result will be 
declared on Monday as already arranged. Sir Thomas Holland, Vice-Chancellor of Edinburgh
University and the Returning Officer, stated yesterday that Mr. Skelton's death would not
cause any alteration in the lection proceedings. If Mr. Skelton received a sufficient number
of votes, he would have to declare him elected; in that event no doubt when Parliament
assembled someone in the usual way would move for a writ to be issued for the 
by-election.'
