Notes: Houghton was elected as a Labor MP for Balmain at the 1891 election. He was absent from the lists of Labor and Independent Labor candidates in the Australian Workman, but was was listed as a Labor candidate in the Worker on 30 June and as a modified pledge Labor candidate in the 7 July Brisbane Worker. He is shown here as an additional Independent Labor candidate to the accepted list from Workman.
Corrections: Hughes and Graham (1975) list Houghton as Protectionist Labor, the affiliation in both the Daily Telegraph and the Town and Country Journal. Given other listings, Independent Labor is the affiliation adopted here.
