Spencer Compton Cavendish (1833-1908), Marquis of Hartington, British Liberal statesman, 1906. Artist: Unknown

Spencer Compton Cavendish, Marquis of Hartington, British Liberal statesman, 1900. Cavendish (1833-1908) became leader of the Liberal opposition in 1875, and after Disraeli's Conservative government fell in 1880 he was invited to form a government. Instead he opted to serve under Gladstone's leadership, holding the offices of Secretary of State for India (1880-1882) then Secretary of State for War (1882-1885). His differences with Gladstone over Irish Home Rule compelled Cavendish to refuse to serve in his government in 1886 and become leader of the Liberal Unionists. He succeeded as Duke of Devonshire in 1891 and entered the House of Lords. From Hignett's Butterfly Medium Cigarette - Modern Statesmen, 1906.

Carey (1845-1883) was a leading member of the Republican group known as 'the Invincibles', which carried out the assassination of Thomas Henry Burke, the Under-Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, and Chief Secretary Lord Frederick Cavendish in Dublin's Phoenix Park on 6 May 1882. He was arrested in January 1883 and turned queen's evidence, leading to the hanging of five of his former associates.
