The two political parties in the town are the Blues (Синие) and the Buffs (Желтые). Mr. Samuel Slumkey is the candidate to Parliament supported by the Blues. Mr. Horatio Fizkin is the candidate of the Buffs.
Who will succeed in the election in your opinion? (anticipating)
It was Iate in the evening when Mr. Pickwick and his friends stopped at the Town Inn (гостиница). They wanted rooms for the night. Large blue silk flags were flying from the windows of the inn. A crowd of people was standing in the road looking at a man in the balcony who was telling them about Mr. Slumkey.
The man had already lost his voice and few people could catch his words because of the four large drums which Mr. Fizkin’s committee were beating at the street corners.
“Slumkey for ever (навсегда)!” cried the people.
“Slumkey for ever,” repeated Mr. Pickwick, taking off his hat. “No Fizkin!” shouted the crowd. “Certainly not,” repeated Mr. Pickwick again.
‘Who is Slumkey?” asked him his friend Mr. Tupman. “I don’t know,” answered Mr. Pickwick in a Iow tone. “Hush. Don’t ask any questions. It’s always best in such situations to do what the crowd does.” “But if there are two crowds?” “Shout with the largest,” said Mr. Pickwick.
3) Find the statements in the text to support the following ideas.
• The election campaign was in full swing (в полном разгаре).
• Mr. Pickwick didn’t support any of the candidates.
4) Who won the election? (reading for specific information)
The election began the next day. Mr. Pickwick met his friends at the Town Inn. There were blue flags everywhere. A band was playing loudly. There were electors on horses and electors on foot.
“Is everything ready?” said Mr. Samuel Slumkey to Mr. Parker, a committee man.
“Everything, my dear Sir.”
“Nothing has been forgotten, I hope?”
“Nothing, my dear Sir. There are twenty washed men at the street door for you to shake hands with and six children whom you will pat (похлопать) on the head and ask their age; it always has a great effect. And you can kiss one of them. It will make a very great impression on the crowd.”
“Can somebody else kiss the children?”
“I am afraid not. If you do it, it will make you very popular.” “Very well,” said Mr. Samuel Slumkey, “then it must be done.” Soon Mr. Samuel Slumkey appeared before his electors. He shook hands with the men, patted the children on the heads and kissed them all. The cheers of the crowd were Ioud and long. Then the procession moved to the election hall. On the way there it was mixed with the procession of the Buffs. The electors called out the names of their candidates, pushed the electors of the other party.
The Mayor asked the electors to stop shouting and twelve policemen helped him. At Iast the band and the crowd were stopped, and the candidates made their speeches, after which the election began.
During the whole time of the election the town was in a fever of excitement. Some of the electors did not know whom to support. One hour before the close of the election Mr. Parker spoke to these intelligent, respectable patriotic men. His speech was not long but resui-tative. All of them went to the election hall and when they returned, the honourable Samuel Slumkey was elected.
