INCOME TAX AND PASSIVE RESISTANCE. (To the Editor.)

5 January 1904, Examiner (Launceston, Tas. : 1900 - 1954), page 8

Income Tax and Passive Resistance. (To the Editor.) Sir, — A cry of execration went up through all Tasmania when Mr. Bird first introduced his Income Tax Bill, and the result was that, on an appeal being made to, the country, the Ministry was completely ousted and a fresh Government formed, which was returned with, a distinct mandate from the people to oppose the tax, and those returned pledged them selves so to do. But now, with feelings of surprise and indignation, the people find that their positive mandate has been totally ignored, and that their representatives have allowed an Income Tax Bill to be placed on…

…Zeehan. A Passive Resistance Movement. Zeehan, Friday . — The following resolution regarding the Income Tax was passed at an open-air meeting in Main street to-night , at which several hundred were present: That we, the taxpayers of Zeehan in mass meeting assembled, hereby express our solemn determination to passively resist the payment of the unjust income tax imposed by the late Government, who were in consequence literally pitched out of office, and which the present Ministry were pledged to repeal, the said tax being therefore contrary to the almost unanimous wish of the country. Messrs R.J. Wilkinson and W. Lamerton, M.H.A., were the speakers. Another…

THE INCOME TAX.

9 January 1904, Zeehan and Dundas Herald (Tas. : 1890 - 1922), page 2

The Income Tax. Last evening an open-air meeting was held in Main street to deal with the income tax demands. There was a goodly number present, who assembled in front of the Victoria Hotel, from the balcony of which the speeches were delivered, and were heartily applauded. Mr R.J. Wilkinson said he was there at the call of duty. He recalled what had taken place at former open-air meetings regarding the income tax, and the efforts which had been put forth against it. He had addressed thirteen meetings against the tax, and he recalled the burning of effigies; also the reply given at…

THE INCOME TAX. CHURCH AND STATE. A PULPIT DELIVERANCE.

11 January 1904, Examiner (Launceston, Tas. : 1900 - 1954), page 5

The Income Tax. Church and State. A Pulpit Deliverance. At one time political subjects were rarely touched upon in the pulpit, but that day has passed, many ministers apparently holding to the belief that such questions can be dealt with just as ably in a church as upon the public platform. Such opinion is evidently held by the Rev. J. Bangers, who last night dispensed with the usual sermon, and delivered instead an address entitled “The Income Tax: Payment or Passive Resistance.” Basing his remarks upon Matthew ⅹⅻ . 21 — “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that…

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR.

13 January 1904, Zeehan and Dundas Herald (Tas. : 1890 - 1922), page 4

Income Tax. Sir, — The open-air meeting held last week, when some 300 citizens pledged themselves to passive resistence in regard to the tax which the Legislative Council demand shall be paid, has been the means of awakening the people. It is gratifying to see that we here, in Zeeban, in this case, as in many others, lead the way of passive resistance to the illegal and unjust demands of the dead house. The action of the member for George Town, Mr A.J. Jenson, in calling on the electors of his district not to pay the tax until every effort had been made to…
