URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL ELECTION. The election of five representatives on the Holywell Urban District Counoil, took place at the Halkyn- street Board Schools on Monday last. There were eight candidates for the five vacancies, but one of the candidates (Mr E. M. Evans), had previous to the election withdrawn owing to the issuing of the order of the County Council transferring the Penyball district to Brynford Parish. Three of the eight candidates were retiring members seeking re-election and each was successful in securing his seat, namely, Messrs Hague, J. E. Jones and J. W. Daviea. The election was exceptionally unexciting, the interest evinced in the^canvass of the candidates being comparatively small and the poll up to within an hour of the close was decidedly flat. Mr Robert Thomas (olerk to the Urban Council), was returning offioer and presided at one of the polling booths, assisted by Mr T. O. Griffiths as poll olerk Mr Joseph E. Jones, presiding at the second polling booth, assisted by Mr W. Chisholm, as poll clerk. The expeditious way in which the result of the poll was obtained and declared was unexpected. Those not directly connected with the election and in the room at the time had left the school premises under the impression that there would be a considerable break between the closing of the poll and the declaration. The anticipation was wrong, as the declaration was formally made by the Returning Officer to an empty schoolyard, not a single person being present except those who were present at the oounting, The declaration of the poll was made shortly after nine o'clock as follows Mr J. H. Hague, High-street 241 Mr Walter Owen, High-street 223 Mr John E. Jones, Victoria Buildings..219 Mr John W. Davies, Whitford-street., 194 Mr Robert Richards, Greenfield-street.. 174 Mr J. W. Bennett, King's Arms Hotel.169 Mr Edwin Hughes, Whitford-street. 109 Mr E. M. Evans, Penyball, o 39 After the declaration was made a oordial vote of thanks was proposed to the Returning Offioer for the prompt despatch with which the whole proceedings had been carried out. The poll taken was 3Gi out of nearly 600 electors. There were five spoilt votes.
