Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (West ern Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [3.24]. - by leave - Since the Senate last met, yet another member of the first Federal Parliament has died. I refer to the Honorable Samuel Mauger. The late honorable gentleman was PostmasterGeneral in the Deakin Ministry during 1907 and 1908, and was an Honorary Minister during parts of 1906 and 1907. Commencing his parliamentary life as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Victoria from 1899 to 1901, Mr. Mauger transferred to the federal sphere during the latter year as member for Melbourne Port3. He remained a member of the Commonwealth Parliament until 1910, and served on several select committee* and royal commissions. Outside of Parliament he was associated with many public movements, in all of which he was a very prominent member. The late Mr. Mauger leaves behind him a record of long and distinguished service in many movements organized with a view to the uplifting of humanity. On behalf of honorable senators, I tender to the members of his family our sincere sympathy in their bereavement. I move -

That this Senate expresses its deep regret at the death of the Honorable Samuel Mauger, a former member of the Victorian and Commonwealth Parliaments and Commonwealth Minister of State, places on record its appreciation of his meritorious public service, and tenders to his widow and family its sincere sympathy in their bereavement.
