PEMBROKESHIRE. Progressive Triumph. MAJORITY INCREASED. The votes in the Pembrokeshire contest were counted on Saturday, and the result was de- V alared as fouows W. F. Roch L 6,135 E. Marlay Samson. VC 3,291 Ub. majority 2,844 The result was greeted with cheers, again and again repeated. On the motion of Mr Roch, seconded by Mr Samson, a hearty vote of thanks was passed to the returning officer. Afterwards Mr Roch was chaired in triumph round the town. A band from Milford Haven was in attendance, and the greatest excite- ment prevailed. Mr Roch afterwards addressed a large crowd from the balcony of the Mariners' Hotel, He said that once again he had to thank Pem- brokeshire for a vote of confidence. Once again had they buried Tariff Reform. (Loud cheers.) They had shown what Pembrokeshire Liberals thought of the Budget. (Cheers.) Now we know, added Mr Roch, that Pembrokeshire m.en did not think that the Unionists gave old age pensions. (Much laughter.) Pembrokeshire believed in the Budget; Pembrokeshire under- stood what the Budget means in the years to rome. He thanked the veterans and the large army of the younger generation who had worked so hard. Above all he thanked Mr Walter F. James, the chief in command, who had organised the victory. He also thanked Mr Ivemey and the Pembroke Dock friends jor- the valuable work they had done in the south of the cooftty. Continuing, Mr Roch said he believed their Conservative friends sometimes underesti- mated the earnestness of Liberalism in Pem- brokeshire—the deep conviction which under- lies it and the broad humanity that inspires it. lcheem) Rousing speeches were also delivered by Dr. Griffiths, the Rev. J. Hughes Parry, rector of Rudbaxton; Mr Isaiah Reynolds, and Mr Walter James. BUDGE-r4 DRMNG FORCE. Interviewed by our representative, Mr Roch cttributed his victory to the driving force of the Budget, which had aroused great enthu- siasm, especially among young Liberals, who worked for him magnificently. The desire for religious equality and temperance reform were also among the causes wtkich led to his victory. MR MARLAY SAMSON'S ADDRESS. Mr Marlay Samson was carried by his sup- porters to the Castle Hotel, from the windows of which he addressed a large crowd. They had, he said, put up a good fight, and had done I their best. (Cheers.) He thought the feeling they all had was one of hope that the time Would come when they would have a chance of. Aoing it again. (Cheers.) However, they must Hot allow themselves to be discouraged in Pembrokeshire, but must work all the harder, to that next time they would do much better. ICheers.) He hoped that next time he would be able to pull down the majority, if not get rid of it altogether. (Cheers.) He did not want them to go home feeling in the least dis- souraged, but to find out where the weak places where and try to remedy them. How- trer disappointed they might beat the result in Pembrokeshire, they could congratulate them- selves upon the results of the elections in Eng- knd. (Cheers.)
