Y CYMRO YN GONCWERWR YN FULHAM. Mr. Timothy Davies (R.) 8,037 Mr. Hayes Fisher (C.) 7,407 Mwyafrif 630 Yr ydym yn teimlo yn bur sicr fod bron bawb o Gymry Llundain, gan nad i ba blaid bolitic- aidd y perthynant, yn llawenhau yn llwyddiant ein cydwladwr poblogaidd, Mr. Timothy Davies, yn y frwydr etholiadol dydd Mawrth. Pryd y bu Cymro nid yn unig o waed, ond hefyd 0 dafod, yn arfer addoli bob Sabboth mewn addoldy Cymraeg, yn cynrychioli unrhyw ran o Lundain o'r blaen ? Nid ydym yn cofio i'r un gael y cyfryw anrhydedd erioed. Yr hyn sydd yn gwneyd yr oruchafiaeth hon yn fwy gogoneddus yw y ffaith fod Fulham yn gadarnle Ceidwad- aeth. Bu Mr. Hayes Fisher yn cynrychioli y rhanbarth am dros ugain mlynedd, ac yr oedd ei fwyafrif yn yr etholiad diweddaf yn 2,294. Profa y ffigyrau hyn nid yn unig fod cyfnewidiad anhygoel hon wedi dyfod dros yr etholaeth, ond hefyd fod y Cymro yn boblogaidd dros ben lie yr adwaenir ef oreu, a'i fod yn ymladdwr campus. Llongyfarchwn Mr. Timothy Davies, A.S., yn y modd mwyaf cynes, a gobeithio y caiff yrfa seneddol hir i wasanaethu ei genedl a'i wlad enedigol yn ogystal a gwasanaethu ei etholaeth fabwysiedig.

Notes of the Week. (' The General Election.- The General Election is now in full swing, and it is well nigh impossible to talk or even think of anything else. As we write, some 250 contests are over, and before these lines will be before the eyes of our readers practically the whole of the boroughs in the United Kingdom and in Ireland will have recorded their opinion on the burning questions of Tariff Reform, Chinese Labour, Education, Welsh Disestablishment, and so forth. The excitement everywhere is intense. Not within living memory has political feeling been so deeply stirred as it is just now. Even the children are affected by it, and those in their cradles are going through their first vocal exercises by endeavouring to utter the names of the contend- ing parties. Never were candidates so severely heckled, never were so many refused hearing, never were such a number of meetings broken up in disorder. Cabinet Ministers and ex-Cabinet Ministers were treated as if they were of no im- portance, born orators as if they were tiresome bores. The sights in the streets every even- ing since Saturday have been indescribable. Thousands upon thousands of people stood nightly in the rain and mud, patiently waiting for results and passing the tedious hours by singing election songs. Astounding Results.-The results of the polling so far have been so astounding that they almost take away one's breath. Such a swing of the pendulum has not been seen before since Parliament was founded. In plain words, the great Unionist Party of 1900, and great it undoubtedly was, has simply gone asunder. Four ex-Cabinet Ministers have already lost their seats, and others are more than likely to share the same fate. Mr. Balfour has been thrown out of the seat for the division of Manchester which he had held for over twenty years, and his majority of nearly twenty-five hundred converted into a minority of nearly two thousand. The most remarkable features are the heaviness of the polls, and the hugeness of the Liberal and Labour majorities, these majorities running up as high as seven thou- sand in some cases. Nearly all the large cities and towns have gone clean against the Unionist Party. In Manchester, Salford, Leeds, Brad- ford, Southampton, and other places the Liberals have swept the boards, and have almost done so in Bristol and Sheffield. Towns that never before sent a Liberal to Parliament have done so this time with incredible majorities. As we write the Government has captured 85 Unionist seats, against the single loss of Hastings. And it is the very irony of fate that the small boroughs which Mr. Balfour's Redistribution Bill proposed to disfranchise are the only con- stituencies that remain loyal to him. The total number of members returned up to the time of writing is 244. Of this number the Liberals hold 136, Labour 19, Conservatives 50, and Irish Nationalists 39, thus giving the Government a clear majority of 28 over all the other sections combined, or counting the Labour members as Liberals, as they undoubtedly ought to be counted, a clear majority over Conservatives and Nationalists of 66. Of course it is quite possible and perhaps probable that the final state of parties will not be quite in the same proportion, but all things point to a Progressive triumph, the like of which has never before been experienced. Results in London.-Up to now only 37 of the London constituencies have polled, but 20 of these have been captured by either a Liberal or a Labour candidate. Walworth and Dept- ford have gone in for Labour; all the other 18 are Liberals of the official type. The two large boroughs of Islington and St. Pancras have returned four Liberals each, and of the four divisions of Lambeth the Conservatives have been able to retain only one. Such strong and popular men as Sir Albert Rollitt, Sir George Bartley, Sir F. L. Cooke, and others who had always been successful in obtaining majorities that appeared unshakeable have been defeated by overwhelming majorities. Lord Hugh Cecil lost his seat for Greenwich and was placed at the bottom of the poll through the interference of lMr. Chamberlain's nominee. The most unique contest in London was in North Lam- beth, where there were four candidates, both parties being split, among them being Mr. Horner, the late member, who, however, only found 108 electors to support him. In which- ever direction one turns one sees only the violent swinging of the pendulum. London has been the stronghold of Conservatism so long that it is difficult to realise that a change has come over it. In 1900 fifty out of the 58 members it sent to Parliament were Con- servatives. No doubt the late Government awakened resentment in South London especially, by the opposition to over-bridge trams, and by the several other ways in which it hampered the County Council in its work. The Liberals spoke confidently for some time of winning some seats, but the actual results have astounded even the most sanguine among them.
Am Gymry Llundain. GWAEDDI.- Yr etholiad sydd wedi mynd a bryd pawb y dycldiau hyn, ac ni chlywyd y fath waeddi ers hir amser yn yr ystrydoedd na phan y cyhoeddir y canlyniadau ar y parwydydd yn y nos. CADGYRCH EFFEiTHiOL.—Addefir yn gyffredin mai yn Fulham, o holl ranbarthau Llundain, y gwnaed y gwaith etholiadol trylwyraf ar ran y Rhyddfrydwyr. Roedd Mr. Davies wedi trefnu pob adran o'r etholaeth o dan gyfarwyddwr priodol megys pe bae'r cyfan yn fasnachdy eang. MRS. DA VIEs.-Ni fendithiwyd yr un ym- geisydd a gwell cydmar nac a gafodd Mr. Davies yn ei briod. Canai yn y cyfarfodydd gyda'i llais swynol er dodi'r dorf mewn cywair hapus i siarad wrthynt, siaradai yn effeithiol yn y man gynulliadau, a galwai yn ddiflino ar gannoedd o'r pleidleiswyr bob dydd i ofyn eu cefnogaeth j'w phriod. Does ond sedd yn y Senedd yn ad-daliad digon da i'r fath waith. # Nos SADWRN.—Caed brwdfrydedd dyblyg yn mysg Cymry'r ddinas nos Sadwrn diweddaf.
