Mr FOWLER (Perth) .- May I, as one of the few remaining original members of this Chamber, be allowed also to add my word of tribute to the memory of the late honorable member for Maranoa? He has been through all these years a very intimate personal friend of mine, and I feel his loss most deeply. To me he was always the beau ideal of those who have come from the Old Land to help to build up the fortunes of Australia. He started at the very bottom, and worked Himself up, by sheer force of character and the admiration of those with whom he came in contact, into the high and honorable position in which death found him. He always lived a strenuous life, and the manner of his death is probably the one which he would have desired. There have been many who have already entered this Chamber and have left it for one reasonor another. Many more will yet come, but I feel sure there will never enter within its walls a finer type of man than Jim Page.
