sold fifty thousand copies and number eleven, Peers and the People, about the rejection of the Franchise Bill, sold one hundred and twenty thousand, both far in excess of the circulation of the Pall Mall Gazette (see Too Late unpaginated; Pictures of 1885 xiv)--but for Stead this circulation was proof of the interest in his various campaigns.
