Dr EARLE PAGE (Cowper) .- On behalf of the Country party, I support the motion moved by the Prime Minister (Mr. Lyons), and seconded by the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Scullin), which extends the sympathy of the members of this House to the relatives of the late Senator Ogden. As years go, he was a comparatively young man, especially for a native of Tasmania, where longevity is the rule. He died worn out by the years of service which he devoted to the public. For a brief time I worked with him as a colleague in a Government, and no one could have been more conscientious or painstaking than he in the discharge of his duties. Despite constant ill health he spent many years in the service of his country, and I am convinced that the public have lost a valuable servant by his death.
