Notes: Morgan was a sitting MP for The Bogan. In 'Civilising Capitalism', Bede Nairn lists Morgan as won of the non-solidarity Labor candidates (p120 and footnote). However, he is shown as a Protectionist candidate rather than Independent Labor candidate as he received the endorsement of the Protection committee. (SMH 16 July 1894, p.5)
