Notes: Curran is listed as a selected Labor candidate in the SMH, and is also shown as Labor in the general listings of all newspapers. However, he is not mentioned in the Australian Workman (as he was also absent in 1895) and had not been mentioned in the Worker by 7 July. Given these sources, he has been listed as a Labor Party candidate additional to those listed in the Workman.
