Senator CLOTHIER (Western Australia) . - I, too, congratulate you, Mr. President, on your elevation to your high office. Having sat with you as a member of the Parliament of Western Australia, I am aware of your ability. It is noteworthy that the occupant of the

Speaker's Chair iri the House of Representatives is also a Western Australian. Honorable senators from that State, therefore, derive added pleasure from your election; and for the information of honorable senators generally, I might say that we expect further honors to fall to Western Australians in this Parliament. I congratulate the retiring President, Senator J. B. Hayes, upon the able manner in which he carried out his duties in the chair. He did justice to all honorable senators. Indeed, I think that you will' agree with me, sir, when T say that your predecessor has set you a high standard to attain.
