Sir EARLE PAGE (Cowper) (Prime Minister) . - It is my sad dutyto announce the death of another former member of this House, Mr. William Wilson Killen. Mr. Killen was elected for the Division of Eiverina at the general elections of 1922, and was re-elected at the general elections of 1925, 1928 and 1929. He retired from Parliament in 1931.

Those of us who were associated with Mr. Killen, when he was a member of this. House, were able to appreciate fully his sincerity and hishigh personal worth.' He rendered valuable public service while a' member of the Commonwealth Parliament. As an authority on matters connected with the pastoralindustry, his contributions to debates on questions affecting rural industries were always welcomed by his parliamentary colleagues.
