Notes: JC Neild retired from the contest, 'compelled to relinquish a promising candidature through a serious accident which he met with some time since, preventing his travelling on horseback, the electorate being one where it is necessary to do a great deal of work in the saddle. The explanation was very courteously received, and at the conclusion three hearty cheers were given for Mr Neild.' (SMH 14 February 1889, p.7 col.7)
