There was also a fair attendance of the general public present. An objection was raised by the Liberal party against Mr Warren, coachman in the employ of Miss Griffith, Plus Pigot, and who resided at 8, Ruthin-road," on the grounds that he had not bpen the occupier for the full time.—Mr Warren said he had been the occupier of the house for the last 18 months.—The claim was allowed.

Other people were struck off the list, owing to objections being raised by both parties, both Liberal and Conservative. William Roberts, of Chapel House, Denbigh, was transferred to Division 2 on the list. Mr John Williams, of the Crown Vaults, wss objected to, with the result of his name being strueff off the list, on the grounds that he was not the tenant, and that his employer resided on the premises.

Mr Parry Do you know for a fact that this Davies, the claimant, is the occupier and not his father? Mr Mills I do not know.
