Senator McLEAY (South Australia) (Postmaster-General) . - It is with regret that I inform honorable senators of the death, in Melbourne, on the 12th April last, of the Honorable James Arthur Boyd, who was a former member of the House of Representatives. The late Mr. Boyd was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Victoria in 1901 and was a member of that chamber till 1908. He was an honorary Minister from February, 1907, to December, 1908. He waselected to the House of Representatives for the division of Henty in 1913, and again in 1914 and 1917. Although many years have passed since the late member sat in this Parliament, it is in keeping with the tradition of the Senate that we to-day honour his memory. I extend to his family our sincere sympathy. I move -

That the Senate expresses its deep regret at the death of the Honorable James Arthur Boyd, former member of the House of Representatives for the division of Henty and former State Minister, places on record its appreciation of his meritorious public service, and tenders its sincere sympathy to the members of hie family in their bereavement.
