Source: SMH 6 June 1892, p.6, col.2, reported as 'Final returns', same totals also published in Daily Telegraph the same day. SMH Report of DOP on 5 July does not include results, merely referring to already reported results. Relevant issue of Dubbo Dispatch in NSW State Library collection had been mutilated.
Corrections: Hughes and Graham (1975) use earlier figures that appear to have been published in the SMH on 4 June, p.10, col.3
