The article discusses the political divisions that arose regarding questions of solidarity and the level of control the Labor Party in New South Wales (NSW) should have over parliamentarians following the party's first major electoral success in 1891. Particular attention is paid to the first labor electoral battle in Armidale, NSW, which was contested by Labor Party nominee G. S. Beeby in 1894. Beeby's involvement in the drafting of a solidarity pledge that caused a breach within the Labor Party is examined.
