Senator E B JOHNSTON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - It is known, of course, that I did not vote for you, Mr. President, but I am personally pleased to see yon take your place iti the President's chair. I am sure that you will maintain the traditions of the high office to which you have been called.

Senator COURTICE(Queensland) [3.3SJ. - It gives me great pleasure, Mr. President, to congratulate you on your election to the high office which you now occupy. I feel sure that you will carry out your duties and responsibilities with dignity and credit to yourself, and as capably as your predecessors.

I take this opportunity to express a word of appreciation to the retiring President, Senator J. B. Hayes, and to thank him- particularly for the great consideration and kindness he always extended to me, and, I think, to honorable senators generally, while he was President. I shall always entertain very happy recollections of my first three years as a member of this chamber under the very able and very kindly offices of the retiring President.
