The total number of seats gained by the latter is 59, and their majority is already sufficient to make them quite independent of the Homo Rule Party. It is generally thought to be quite probable that Mr. Gladstone will not accept office should the Liberals come into power. The election for Middlesex took place to-day, and resulted in the return of the two former members, Lord George Hamilton and Mr. 0. E. Coope. Mr. Herbert Gladstone, a son of the exPremier, who contested the election, was defeated. Mr. Gladstone has been elected for Midlothian by a large majority.
