The Speaker (London, UK)

23 April 1904

The Speaker: A Review of Politics, Letters, Science, and the Arts ran from 4 January 4 1890 to 30 September 1899 and, in a new series, as The Speaker: The Liberal Review from 7 October 1899 to 23 February 1907. Under the editorship of J. L. Hammond (1899-1906), it served as a prominent forum for Liberal politics, voicing support for Free Trade and opposition to the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), during which it published articles critical of the war by J. A. Hobson. By 1904 the paper was struggling, and it folded in 1907.
