Notes: In 'Civilising Capitalism', Bede Nairn lists W H Wood as one of the elected non-solidarity Labor candidates (p120 and footnote). He was listed as an Independent Labor candidate in the Australian Workman, the party label adopted here. Wood had not been listed in Worker by 7 July. Other candidates have been listed in line with general listings in newspapers, though Stiles is shown as an Independent as newspapers disagreed on whether he was a Free Trade or Protection.
