I LABOUR WINS A BY-ELECTION. (BY ___OTBIO TELBOBAPH — OOPYBIQH'[PKB PRESS ASSOCIATION.] London, May 5. The by-election at Attercliffo, Shef- [ field, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr Langley on the ground of ill-health, resulted: Mr Power (Labour) 3031, King Fallow (oFcial Unionist) 3380, Mr Lambert (Liberal) 31.75, Mr A. Muir Wilson (Independent Unionist) 2803. : Mr Muir objected to the selection of an outsider, as lie contested the last election. The Labourites attribute their victory, apart from the Too' split, to the lareo number of unemployed at Attercliffo and to the consistent Labour advocacy of the Right-to-work Bill. '.' The Liberals are deeply disappoint- \ etl at the result. , (Received May 6, 8.15 a.m.) London, May 5. Tho Chronicle describes the result of the Attercliffe election as an absurdity. Mr Power was chosen by a little more than one-fourth of the voters.
