Notes: The Elections and Qualifications committee conducted a re-count, producing the totals Loughnane 525, Greene 516, Vaughn 330 and Williams 75. (LAVP 1895-5, Vol.1 p.887). The 7 July issue of the Brisbane Worker listed Loughnane as a modified pledge Labor candidate, but he is listed as a Labor candidate in line with all other sources.
Corrections: Loughnane's name is incorrectle spelt Longhnane in the Statistical Return.
