GLAMORGANSHIRE. In Glamorganshire the Liberal party has done admirably as the result of the elections on Tuesday, and there will be an overwhelming pieponderance of Progressives on the new Council. Probably the most remark- able feature of the elections was the double victory at Penarth, where two seats were wrested from the Conservatives. No little credit is due to Mr J. P. Jones and Mr W. B. Shepherd for their energetic attack upon what had been regarded as a stronghold of the Reactionaries. The splendid victory obtained by the Liberals will effectually shatter any remain- ing hope that Sir Morgan Morgan may enter- tain of successfully opposing Mr Arthur Williams in South Glamorgan. MrGwilym Jones, an alderman on the retiring Council, was elected with a handsome majority for the Dyffryn division and Mr Henry Anthony has been triumphantly re-elected at Caerphilly. The Labour candidate for the Cyfarthfa division of Merthyr, Mr Thos. Thomas, won an extraordinary victory, beating Mr Joseph Owen by the large majouty of 546. Pontypridd has returned two I <iberals after a stiff contest. In the Rhondda Valley considerable interest was evinced in the elections. There were contests in seven out of the eight divisions Most of the collieries suspended operations early on Tuesday afternoon, and some of the pits were practically idle all day. The shops and other business houses were open as usual. The weather was very fine, the sun shining brightly. Numerous vehicles belonging to different trades- men were to be seen all day conveying electors to their respective quarters co reoord their votes. In the afternoon the number of electors wending their way to the 15 booths throughout the division was gradually increasing, and scores of miners from different pits were to bo ob- served hastily trudging home to wash themselves before recording their votes for their favourite candidates. One strikmg feature in connection with the elections was the conspicuous absence of drunken persons about the booths and in the streets, and the quietness and tho amicable feeling prevailing among the sup- porters of the various candidates, who cordially shook hands with each other and chatted to- gether freely for some time. One of the most interesting contests was in the Cymmer Ward, where a working miner, Mr Moses Moses, was successful against Mr Idris Williams, of Brynglas. It is a noteworthy circum- stance that not a solitary Conservative was re- turned at the contested elections on Tuesday, unless we except Mr Edwin Price and Captain Lindsay. Both these gentlemen, however, dis- tinctly declared that they came forward as Inde- pendent candidates, and not on political lines. For purposes of classification Mr Price and Captain Lindsay have been included below among the Conservatives. As many as seven Labour candidates were successful at the elections, all of them connected with tho coal-mming industry, viz., Mr David Morgan, miners' agent, for the Gadlys Division of Aberdare Mr Isaac Evans, miners' agent, for the Resolven Division Mr T. D. Isaac, miners' representa- tive on the Sliding-scale, for Treovky Mr John Thomas, miners' agent, for Garw Valley Mr Moses Moses, miner, for the Cymmer Division Mr Thomas Thomas, for Cyfarthfa and Mr Morgan Williams, checkweigher, for Porth and Penygraig. The balance of parties on the new Council, not including the aldermen, will be:â Liberals 40 Conservatives. 12 Unionists. 5 66 1
