Mr McCAY (Corinella) - No time will be saved by allowing justices to sit instead of stipendiary magistrates, for the simple reason that the returning officer will have to attend each court ; and as he cannot be in two places at once, it will take him fully three months to make a circuit of some of the larger electorates.

Clause postponed.

Clause 41 postponed.

Clause 42 (Notices of sittings).

Mr. HUGHES(West Sydney).- This clause provides that the returning officer shall give notice of the sittings of a court of revision by advertisement in some newspaper circulating in the division. I move -

That the words " some newspaper" be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "one or more newspapers."

Mr. THOMSON(North Sydney). - If the amendment is agreed to, advertisements will be published in all the newspapers in each division. It is desirable, in order to avoid unnecessary expense in advertising, that the number of papers should be specified. I suggest that the whole of the clauses down to clause 50 be postponed.

Clause postponed.

Any person may by writing object to any name being retained on the lists.
