Notes: Despite Labor's decision to contest every seat, a candidate was not nominated against the pro-Labor Progressive Young. (Rydon, Spann and Nelson, 1907 chronicle) Along with EW O'Sullivan in Belmore, the SMH listed Young as one of only two former Progressives to be opposed by an endorsed Liberal candidate, and he was not listed in the Liberal list of candidates generally supportive of the government, Daily Telgraph 10 September.
