Victoria. FURTHER VICTORIES FOR ; LABOR. Melbourne, April 15. In Victoria, as in Tasmania, the Labor Party are assured several^viQtories.' -.??... ? For the, Hous,e of Representa tives it is. expected that they will gain at least six seats. For the. Senate the return of three Laborites is now certain. The Fusionists attribute their defeat to the split in the Liberal ?vote caused by the presence of Mias Vida Goldstein in the con test. This lady scored 46,000 votes, the greater portion of which would have gone to the Fusionists. u Another reason given for the Labor victory is _ what is termed the imbecility of the Legislative Councils. Senator O'Keefe's return is re garded with satisfaction by politicians in all quarters, but otherwise the Fusionists are^ disgusted at the result of the elections in Tasmania.
