BToxiajc mvi.-.itv in GATESHEAD
London. Fe',. ,| -.jhe Liberali have recaptured
Cirencester and have recured , largely increas*
majority in Gateshead.
AtCinnceater Harry L. W. Lawson, tho Liberal
oandidate, 1?, been elected by a vote ol 1,681 to
?J.H., for Colonel Cheater Mast*-, Conaerva
Jive. In the general election in July \ B
?Interbotliam, Liberal, waa elected by 4 *>07 to
4.034 east io, t olonel Master. Alter' the death
Mr Winterbotham another election waa held
in (-rober, which wns sharply contested. Colonel
MMter, who ? deocended iron, tho t\r>t mmher
of Parliament tor Cireneoater, who represented
that constitneney In tbe ti,,,,. ?f the N,,,,.-,
Armada, waa declared elected by 4,277 votes to
4.211 for Mr. Lawaon.
Tha Liberals contested tho election, both on the
ground that the ballots had not hoon correctly
counted and on the charges of corruption ami
bribery. The court found that iho charges of
corruption were nm sustained, hut ordered a nen
election on the ground thal a careful recount of
all the ballots showed au equ'il number for each
candidate. Mr. Lawson was thereupon renom
!";'"'cl l,v ?'"' I.raia and Colonel Master by
tii? Conservatives and Liberal-Unionists. Th*
new register showed a decrease ol tarty-.. ?-.,-?
voters, ti,.- total number being 10.04s.
Great interest was fell in the election on ar
count of itr* being held after iho li_n,e Rule
bill hn.i been fully launched. Mr. Lawson de?
clared himself in favor of Irish Hoi,,,* Rule, and
also drew attention to tho fael that Mr. Glad?
stone's Government proponed to devote ape. .1
attention t?> tho interests of the rural poor, and
to create parish or district councils and rive
the laborer access to the land on fair teran
?' '? tuit rent. Tho liquor-dealing intercut made
vigoroue efforts in support 01 the Conservative
candidate, who was also sustal.I hy all the
influence the landed gentry could bring to bear.
The victor) is thoroton regarded with -.rout bat
Lafaetioa by the Liberals, a. showing that the
aerteulturalists ot the Weet of England an im
