Pembroke Boroughs Result: The result was received at our offices at 1.20 a.m., which a huge ciowd anxiously awaited. The figures were received with immense enthusiasm by the Liberals. The following were the figures Sir Owen Philipps (L) 3,582 Sir George Armstrong (C) 2,877 Liberal majority 7°5 Sir Owen Phillips attributed his victory to the popularity of the Land Taxes and the Budget, and to the feeling that the Dockyard would not suffer under a Liberal Government Sir George Armstrong ascribed his defeat to the persistent manner in which the Liberals had declared that Lord Cawdor's letter in December, 1905, foreshadowed a bad time for the Dockyard, and that it was the inten- tion to close the Yard eventually. These statements were absolutely without founda- tion, but his experience was that once a false rumour of this kind was allowed to gain ground in a Dockyard constituency it was impossible to overtake it. Great scenes of enthusiasm on the part of tha Liberals were witnessed after the declara- tion, and Sir Owen Philipps was the recipient of a magnificent ovation. The cheering was again and again renewed, and the victor was carried on the shoulders of his supporters to the Liberal Club.
