Senator STEWART (Queensland) - I agree with what Senator Pearce and Senator Guthrie have said, and if a division is called for, I shall vote for insisting on the amendment. I do not see why persons on board ships travelling between port and port of the Commonwealth at about the time of the census should not be enumerated. Schedules can be left with the captains of vessels on the occasion of leaving ports if the census day occurs while those vessels are at sea. With regard to not knowing to which State the individuals on board are to be credited, I reply, let each passenger choose his own State. If a man says, " I came from Queensland," let him be credited to Queensland.
