Senator McLEAY (South Australia) (Minister for Supply and Development) . - I regret to inform the Senate of the death in Melbourne on the 27th July of the Honorable the Reverend James Black Ronald. The late Mr. Ronald was a member of the first Commonwealth Parliament. He was elected to the House of Representatives for the Division of Southern Melbourne at the general elections in 1901 and 1903, and represented that division until 1906. It is proper, I think, that we place on record a tribute to the memory of one who was a member of the first Commonwealth Parliament. On behalf of the Senate I extend to his family our deepest sympathy. I move -

That the Senate expresses its deep regret at the death of the Honorable the Reverend James Black Ronald, a former member of the House of Representatives for the Division of Southern Melbourne, places on record its appreciation of his meritorious public service, and tenders its sincere sympathy to the members of his family in their bereavement.
