A PASSIVE RESISTANCE MOVE- MENT.
Zeehan, Friday.— The following resolu- tion 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 pre- sent 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. Lamer- ton, M.H.A., were the speakers. Another meeting was announced for next week.
