Notes: There are questions over the party classifications in this seat. The SMH listed Brown as an Independent Liberal. However, the Star and the Telegraph listed him as an Opposition candidate in their results, and the Telegraph also listed him as a selected Protectionist candidate, though he was missing from the Star's list. Based on the Telegraph, Brown has been listed as a Protectionist, though it may be more appropriate to describe him as an Opposition candidate. All sources listed Smith as an Opposition candidate, but he was not included in any selected list and is shown here as an Independent Protectionist.
