THE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION. GRAND DEMONSTRATION. To celebrate the victory attained by the re- turn of Sir W. T. Lewis, Mr R. H. Rhys, J.P., and Mr James Lewis, J.P., a monster demon- stration took place at Aberdare on Friday evening. Never in the course of a Parlia- mentary electionâand the town was full of enthusiasm during the recent severe struggleâ has a greater amount of excitement been mani- fested, and all classes of the people united to mark their sense of the pronounced triumph over the clique who presume to act in the name of the Liberal Association. Shortly after seveu o'clock a large procession was formed at Llwyd- coed, and, preceded by a band, marched to Mill-street, where a strong contingent of the Hirwain voters joined them, and the whole body united and proceeded to the top of Gadlys. At this point the town ratepayers, also accompanied by a band, amalgamated, and the massed forces journeyed by way of High-street and Com. mercial-place to the Queen's square, where a large platform had been erected. Owing to a severe cold Mr R. H. Rhys was unable to leave his house, and Major Phillips acted as his re- presentative. After speeches by Sir W. T. Lewis, Mr James Lewis, Major Phillips, and others, the procession re-formed, and ac- companied the successful candidates to Maidy House, the horses having been taicen from the carriage and their places supplied by a number of willing hands, who affixed ropes to the vehicle. In every quarter of the town huge gas designs were burning brilliantly, and at most of the houses coloured candles were lit, whilst magneta fire was ignited at the most prominent points on the line of route, the town being crowded with people until a late hour. During the whole of Friday cauons were dis- charged from the neighbouring hills, and there was every indication that the result of the poll was very acceptable to the majority of the in- habitants.- Western Mail.
