GLAMORGANSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS. OGMORE. The polling for a county councillor for the Ogmore division, caused by the elevation of Mr John Williams to an aldermanic seat, took place on Thursday. Three candidates were nominated, namely, Mr Wm. Llewellyn, grocer, Gwa'ia ( House, Tynewydd Mr Wm. Jenkins, mining engineer (Ocean Collieries), Ystradfechan, Tre- orky and Mr Onions. The latter withdrew, and a smart contest ensued between the other two candidates. The number of voters in the division is 1,182, and of these 1,055 polled, but two papers were rejected; > At eleven o'clock on Thursday night the returaing officer, Mr R. C. Griffiths, solicitor,^ of Brjd#6nd, declared the re- sult at Tynewycfd & follow^— Llewellyn 543 Jenkins 510 Majority for Llewellyn 33 SWANSEA DISTRICT. The following is the result of the polling at Tirdeunaw and Sketty:— TIRDRUNAW. Llewellyn Davies. (L.) 137 Thomas Freeman (L.) 75 Majority 62 SKETTY. Robert Amine Morris (C.) 454 W. Fred Richards .(L.) 409 R. Francis Crawshay (L.) 57 h h Majority for Morris 45 Mr Morris stood as an independent, and in the course of his election speeches promised as much T\,T ra* °PPonenty- It is to be regretted that Mr Crawshay, after only a very short residence in the district, should have persisted on going to the poll, as by so doing he lost the seat to the Liberals, for no one would for a moment suggest that Mr Morris lost votes through his candidature. Mr Morris, the new member, is the son and heir of Sir John Morris the lay rector and tithe owner of Swansea; but, nevertheless, it is stated that the chairman of the Gower Liberal Association drove past the polling station without recording his vote against him, while the Liberal member on the County Council for Pencl&wdd, who secured his own return chiefly because he is the son of a sterling Radical father, actually worked for and supported Mr Morris, notwithstanding his Toryism. With respect to this mote will pro- bably be said anon. CWMAVON. The result of the poll was declared by Mr Howell Cuthbertson, returning officer, yesterday as follows -— Thomas Davies, merchant (L) 444 Rev Daniel Evans, Congregatioaial Minister (L) 431 Majoi ity 13
