Big test for parties in Federal by election labor winning in Flinders Melbourne sat labor is Well ahead in the Flinders by election and late tonight it appeared labor was almost certain to win the Federal seat from the government. Labor candidate or. K. E. Ewert led from the Start of counting and increased his margin with each posting. To overtake or. Ewert or. J. F. Rossiter Liberal must pick up about 3,500 in approximately 15,000 votes outstanding which seems an impossible task. The result is a personal Triumph for the Federal opposition Leader or. Evat who has been extremely Active in this Campaign. The poll was regarded As the severest test of the popularity of the Menzies government since the Lyne new by election in 1951, although victorian elections have sometimes proved a poor guide to Federal prospects. The result will not disturb the balance of the House of representatives but it will be keenly Dis cussed As a Pointer to the next Federal general elec Tion. Figures late tonight were k. E. Ewert lab17,698 j. F. Rossiter lib13,397. Mrs. G. M. Stratton ind449. B. Hipwell ind358. Informal 385. Although nearly one third of the total votes have still to be counted the present substantial returns from All subdivisions provide a Cross Section indicator of the final results. The Liberal vote is sure to impro\5p slightly with further counting of the Rural sections of the Divi Sion but it is now Clear that or. Rossiter will fail to poll As Well As he did when he unsuccessfully con tested the South Eastern province at the june legislative Council elections. He was then Defeated by just Over 600 votes when the Liberal total split in a triangular contest. Or. Rossiter who does not reside in the electorate has also apparently failed to retain the Strong per Sonal vote which always assisted the late or. Rupert Ryan whose death necessitated today by election. There Are nearly 3,000 More electors on the Roll than at the april 1951, general elections. Of these about 1,200 Are in Frank Ston subdivision which has previously returned a Liberal majority. It was expected that the increased vote would mostly favor labor. At the 1951 general elections or. Ryan Defeated or. Ewert by 22,728 to 17,833. Liberal leads in Stirling the endorsed Liberal candidate or. W. W. Jenkins was 800 votes ahead in the Stirling by election tonight. He leads or. W. P. My Tifaney ind. Lib with 12 of the 24 polling places counted. These figures included the returns from the two major polling centres Strathalbyn and Victor Harbor. Or. Mcananey led easily on the earlier returns with or. Jenkins always in front of or. F. A. Halleday Independent. But the Victor Harbor boxes put or. Jenkins a Victor Harbor auctioneer Well in the Lead. Progressive figures Are w. W. Jenkins lib. 2,407 w. P. Mcananey and lib1,607 f. A.

It a tailed Bend bound freight train left the line pulling out of Mona to South station about 10 Miles from Murray Bridge at 6.30 . Officials held the express up in Adelaide because it was not known How Long it would take to Clear the line. A breakdown train from tailed Bend reached the derailment about 9 .

Lion mauls ii i Tamer Melbourne sat a 14-year-old circus lioness Pansy savagely mauled her Tamer last night. Victim was Tex Hoin Ville. Claimed to be the world s oldest lion Tamer at Perry s circus at Moorabbin. Pansy sprang 10 ft., pinned him upright against the Cage Wall for several minutes and clawed his right and leg.

As she stood up and pinned me the worst thing happened i dropped my crop. Pansy knew this. She bared her fangs and lashed out at my arms and legs. My right was use less after she had slashed it three times. Picked up crop As cautiously As pos sible because a Man has no Hope once he is Down i forced my left Down and picked up the crop about 400 people attend ing the1 circus sat tensely As Pansy tried to push Tex Down. Suddenly i gave her a terrific Belt across the snout with the butt of the crop Tex said she lashed out again ripped my right knee open in several places and re treated sullenly to her Stool. But she had smelt blood right through the performance she kept look ing for another opening. She made another at tack but missed As i was putting her Back in her Cage. Then when she realised she was beaten she put her head Down for a Pat Man 72, drank acid a Man.
