DECLARING THE RESULT. Magnificent Liberal Majority. Mr Hemmerde M.P. Speaks. E. G. Hemmerde (L). 6,865 David Rhys [C]. 3,321 Liberal majority 3»544 After the declaration of the poll at Wrexham, on Wednesday, Mr Hemmer- de spoke from the balcony of the Imperial Hotel and also at the Reform Club, and met with a great reception at both places. He was carried through the main streets of the town, and was enthusiastically cheered. In the course of his remarks he said they had, by that magnificent victory, wiped out the eight in the Denbigh Bor- oughs a hundred times over. He desired most heartily to thank them for that splen- did majority, and for the way they had worked for him in his absence. It was their victory for more than his. They had not only increased the majority-the poll had never been larger. Wales was going to return a majority of votes in the next Parliament of two to one. The ma- jority would be over 100,000 votes (cheers) Their message was one which absolutely insisted that the power of the House of Lords must be broken for ever, The Lords had attempted a revolution, and upon their heads be the penalty. The de- termined effort of Walesâthe determined decision of the Welsh nation, was that it would no longer brook the insolent inter- ference of the Lords with its liberties and with its highest aspirations.-[ Cbeers]. They had waited long enough for this chance. The enemy had played into their hands, and the game was now wich them. It wanted, however, determined men to play it out. They must not falter or whittle away their chances now. He had taken a pretty good part on the land ques- tion. He hoped with that majority to take a yet bigger part.-[Cheers] He again thanked them on behalf of his wife and himself for the splendid and enthusi- astic manner in which they had supported the Liberal cause. -[Cheers]. j Mrs Hemmerde also briefly expressed her warm thanks for the great w,)rk they had done during the contest and for such an overwhelming majority. The Unionist candidate (Mr Rhys) Sir W W Wynn, and Sir Foster Cunliffe addressed a large crowd assembled out- side the Conservative Club. Mr Rhys said that although they were beaten they were not disgraced. They had fought a very good fight. He had been fighting in that contest, not Mr Hemmerde-against whom he had noth- ing to urge-but a greater than he, Mr Lloyd George, and it was because of him and his Budget that they stood beaten that day. He intended to come back again, if his supporters would have him, to" fight again and to win within the next 18 months at the latest.â(Cheers.)
