Notes: Willis was a sitting MP for Bourke. Rosa was not in the SMH list of selected Labor candidates (16 July) but was listed in the Australian Workman as an official Labor candidate. He had not been listed in the Worker by 7 July. The general listing of candidates in the SMH, Star and Town and Country Journal listed Donald Macdonnell (variously spelt) as a Labor candidate, while the Daily Telegraph listed him as Independent Labor. See letter published in Worker (18 August, p2. col.2) for an explanation of his candidacy. He is listed here as an Independent Labor candidate.
