RESISTING INCOME TAX.
HIGHER EXEMPTION WANTED.
So far all the western miners' lodges which have dealt with the proposal to exercise pas- sive resistance to the Income tax, unless the exemption is raised to £300, have unani- mously endorsed the scheme.
Only two lodges have yet to deal with the matter, after which the proposal will be sent to the general secretary of the federation for endorsement by the central council.
The secretaries of all the industrial organis- ations in Australia will be written to and requested to resist payment of both Federal and State taxes unless the exemption is raised.
