LONDON. Jan. 13-The political map
of England underwent a atriking change
today a a result of the Parliamentary
election held in 39 conatituencie- in
widely watterrd but im porta nt center,
and in which th Liberal gained eigh
teen aeata. The Laborite, who ara
counted among the Liberal in the
gains, .ecu red four aew aeaU. Ia the
east division of Manchester, Arthur J.
Balfour, th former Premier, wa de
feated by T. O. Horridge. a Liberal,
who wa conceded a weak candidate
even by the Liberal. Horridge'. ma
jority wa 1080. Thia victory wa. de
cidedly the sensational outcome of th
day' polling and will, it i believed,
enormously effect the election which
will continue for a fortnight. Although
only sixty-six seat are now filed out
of 670 required for the new Parliament,
the composition of the House a ihowa
by the result, up to midnight is. .Lib
eral. 39, Unionist 11 Laborite k and
Nationalist 7. Little disorder occurred
anywhere. The excitement at Manches
ter wa intense and candidate aad con
stituent worked with feverish anxiety
and activity, especialy in Balfour'a dis
trict. Dispatches from Manchester say
the excitement tonight is indescribable.
Great Crowds swarmed th street
cheering nd demonstrating with the
utmost enthusiasm. Balfour tonight
adi!reed a meeting at the Conserva
tive Club. He acknowledged the grav
ity of the disaster, but predicted a
short life for the Liberal government.
Of course Balfour will find another seat
before the elections are owr by one
of the I'nionist candidate retiring in
hi favor. I'p on the present however,
ther ia no indication of where the for
mer Premier will find thia place.
