STAMP DUTIES AND STAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 16 January 1917

STAMP DUTIES AND STAMPS. Two centuries and a half have elapsed since the revenue-producing possibilities of stamp duties dawn ed upon European legislators. Ever since that impecunious and extrava gant sovereign, .the second Charles, discovered that method of semi-indi rect taxation, European treasurers have exploited it as persistently as Asiatic rulers rely for ready money on their salt taxes. ,It is 'a far cry from Charles Stuart to Frank Wil son; but this New Year establishes a Stamp Tax connected with them; for tthe first of the taxative mea sures.of the Wilson Government, in creasing the stamp duties, is now in operation. This form of revenue raising is usually resorted to in war time; already South Australia and England have doubled their imposts on property transfers and other documents of legal and business value, while Victoria is also increas ing her stamp duties. West Aus tralia's charges in this direction were the lowest in the Common wealth, and produced' only some £64,...

Captain Dash said that the Direc tor-General had been oommunicat" ed with, asking him to consider the regulation bearing on the subject. Mr. J.

THE NATIONAL FEDERATION Melbourne. Jan. 10. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 16 January 1917

THE NAIIOHAL FEDERATION Melbourne. Jan. 10. The following statement was made to-night by Sir John Forres :--"Tbo prcposal to form a. National Politi cal Party really must mean that the name of the Liberal forces through out Australia& should be changed from Liberal to National. It is quite reasonable that the mem?bers who have been forced out of the of ficial Labour party, and who find themselves homeless, should form an organisation that they can easily en Ster and maintain their position and their identity. Their only offence apparently has been that they have patriotically preferred devotion to the. Empire .to. the domination of I outside unions on the question of compulsory service in time of war. In advocating oompulsory service. they had the support of the whole of thv Liberal party of the Com monwealth, and the Liberals recog nise that they fought the 'Win-the War' baftfle together in complete union; and now that disaster looms ahead for Mr. Hughes and his -fol towers...
