In 1883 he was elected to the Assembly for Charters Towers, and sat till 1888, when he was returned for Kennedy, which he still represents. Mr. Lissner came to England with Mr. Black in 1887 as the representative of the Charters Towers miners to assist Mr. Harold Finch-Hatton in pressing the question of North Queensland Separation on the attention of the Home Government.
