Notes: Sitting MP John Hurley contested Wellington. In the report of the nominations SMH 5 January, p.3 col.1, wags attempted to nominate another John Lackey, described in the report as from Smithfield, but he refused to allow his nomination. Neither Joseph Wearne nor J G O'Connor are shown as sitting MPs as both had been defeated two weeks earlier contesting their former seat of West Sydney.
