A large number of reports had on the previous night been brought down by Taff Vale travellers which made th6 public mind of Cardiff somewhat unsettled as to a possibility of Mr Lewis being in, and when the figures were posted up the utmost relief and satisfaction was experienced. During the evening the Liberal gain at Northampton gava rise to great cheering, which was only exceeded by the enthusiastic welcome which greeted the announcement of the poll for Bristol.

At the Swansea office of the South Wales Daily News the results were posted up in the presence of a large gathering, and the utmost pleasure was expressed at the splendid series of victories for the day.
