Sir JOHN QUICK (Bendigo) - I feel very much impressed with the complaints made by members who have had experience of the working of the South Australian Act. It appears that under that Act some of the officials authorized to witness the marking of the ballot-paper have been hawked about the country in the interests of certain candidates.

Mr Kingston - That was before the Act was altered.

Sir JOHN QUICK - I do notknow why the South Australian Government permitted this to be done, because noState officer should be utilized by electioneering agents or other interested persons.

Mr Kingston - The practice was stopped on soon as it was discovered.
