  United Kingdom general election, 1885 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1885 UK general election was from the 24th November - 18th December 1885.
It saw the Liberals, led by William Gladstone, win the most seats, but not an overall majority.
As the Irish Nationalists held the balance of power between them and the Conservatives, this exacerbated divisions within the Liberals over Irish Home Rule and led to a split and another general election the following year.

 The British Occupation of Komundo 1885-1887

On 6 May 1885 the Anglo-Russian conflict suddenly threatened to erupt in Yokohama harbour when HMS "Agamemnon", returning from its deployment in Port Hamilton with HMS "Sapphire" and HMS "Swift", suddenly received a "hostile demonstration" from the Russian warship "Vladimir Monomach".
However, between 1885 and 1887, the islands commanded the attention of the governments of China, Japan, Britain, Russia and Korea, and were a focus of considerable tension and anxiety in the region.

 The Emergence of Modern Irish Socialism 1885-87   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
However, these branches (in Dublin, Cork, Belfast and Cootehill) were short-lived because of the intense opposition that they encountered and their demise was followed by a complete absence of socialist organisation until 1885.
In a sense, Irish socialism from 1885 onwards is best seen as an outpost of the British 'socialist revival'.
The emergence of the Dublin branch of the Socialist League in December 1885 can be said to mark the real beginning of modern organised socialism in Ireland.

 Ellen E. Dickinson's 1885 New Light on Mormonism, Part 1)
The younger Rice replied to Dickinson on Feb. 21, 1885 and she barely had time to forward his initial reply regarding the Honolulu discovery to her publisher before New Light on Mormonism was put through the press in New York City.
The Deseret News of May 20, 1885 broke with its usual policy of not quoting RLDS sources defending Mormonism and reprinted the Mar. 28, 1885 L. Rice letter from the Saints' Herald.
As alluded to previously, Dickinson's lasting impact upon the Spalding authorship claims lies not so much what she herself had to say in her reporting during the 1880s, as it does the fact that she uncovered and made available a considerable amount of valuable source material for the student of this subject.
