COUNTIES POLLING. LIBERAL GAINS. MABON RETURNED. 1 MAGNIFICENT MAJORITY. CARMARTHEN AND RAD- CLIFFE WON. There were 21 contests yesterday, but '\he majority of the results were not ex pected to be declared till to-day. The re- turns, though few, show a gain of two seats to the Liberals-viz., Carmarthen Boroughs and Radcliffe Division of Lanca- shire. The greatest possible interest was taken locally in the contests in the Rhondda Val- ley and the Carmarthen Boroughs, but before any news came from either of those places a couple of results had been received from Lancashire and one from St. Andrews Burghs. The announcement that a Liberal victory had been gaiaed in the Radcliffe Division of Lancashire was heartily wel. comed, but it was as nothing to the cheer. jing that ensued when the fact that Mr Alfred Davies had beaten Sir John Jones Jenkins in the Carmarthen Boroughs was received. The Liberal Unionist Association have apparently received complaints that a num- "ber of Conservatives have been described s Unionists, and they have issued a revised ist which showed that up to midnight, in. cluding the above-mentioned returns, the Unionists sent to St. Stephen's numbered 51. The Press Association stated that up to 1 o'clock this morning the Ministerialists numbered 327 and the Opposition 165. It was nearly 2.30 a.m. when the result of the Rhondda election was received at Cardiff, and the announcement of Mabon's huge majority was loudly cheered by the crowd which had waited in St. Mary-street. Nominations have now been made in all but two of the constituencies, namely, Wick Burghs (to day) and Orkney and Shetland (Thursday). More than one-third of the House has been elected without con- tests. On the members actually elected the Government is this morning 160 to the good but among the 177 seats still to be filled the Liberals held the greater number at the dissolution, so that if no further changes occur the Ministerialist majority will be 138.
