Notes: Garvan was a sitting MP for Eden. Rawlinson did not appear as a selected Labor candidate in any newspaper, but the SMH initially listed him as a Labor candidate. All other papers referred to him as a Protectionist candidate. The Australian Workman listed him as an Independent Labor candidate before the election (14 July) but not after (21 July). He is shown here as an Independent Protectionist.
