A general election for the House of Assembly was held in the Australianstate of Tasmania on 23 January 1913 (a Thursday, as the convention of holding elections on a Saturday did not become common until the 1920s).
Solomon achieved what he had hoped by calling an early election: Norman Cameron lost his seat which was picked up by the Liberals, giving them a more favourable two-seat majority in the house. This advantage, however, was short-lived. The Liberals lost a seat in a by-election, and the erratic behaviour of MHA Joshua Whitsitt was coming under question. Solomon lost a no-confidence motion in April 1914, and the Governor denied his request for another dissolution, calling upon John Earle to form a Labor government.
