AMUSEMENTS TAX COLLECTION [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917
AMUSEMENTS TAX COLLECTION The organisers of various war patriotic funds on the goldfields, incline to a belief that the imposi ti(o, of the amusements tax of oai" [ nny in the shilling on tickets .1i admission to entertainments, when applied to those arranged for pat riotic purposes,will have a prejudi cal effect upon the funds in ques tion. Since the beginning of the. war they have acquired a great deal of experience in the management of concerts and other entertainments' The tax is. supposed to come out of the pocket of persons paying for ad nmission. They are expected to buy and affix postage stamps to their tickets. Tickets that are sold, and not used, are also to bear postage stamps. The tickets are to be de 1 spatched within 12 hours of the par I tcular entertainment to the Deputy I Commissioner of Taxation., in Perth. If this be mandatory, then the war patriotic funds on the goldfields will suffer to an appreciable . extent. Many .tickets are purchased, but Inot presented. Th...

LIlUOR AND TODACCO LAWS Perth, Jan. 23. In the Legislative Assembly to day, the Attorney-General moved the second reading of the Sale of Liquor and Tobacco Bill. He said the bill was to amend the Liquor Regulation Act of 1915, and the Li cessing Act. The section of the Act amended would apply to only the metropolitan and agricultural dis taiots.

The books would be subject to inspection. The penalty provided for was £20. The next amendment was the selling of liquor to children.

STAR EXPLORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
STAR EXPLORATIONS. The revenue of the Star Explora tion , Limited, was in the year end ed September 30 last curtailed by heavy taxation, and the reduced earning capacity, of the enterprises in which the company is interested, while the field for new business was limited on account of Treasury re strictions and other adverse condi tions due to the war. The. profit and loss account showed a credit balance of £1076, making, with £76 ybrought forward from 1915, a'total of £1152. A comparison with the 1915 accounts shows that about £950 less was received in dividends from the Lake View and Star, Limited, * while the consequent depreciation in the market value of the shares had to be provided for. It had been thought advisable, therefore, to transfer £1100 to investments re serve account, and to carry forward the balance of £52.

SERRYMAlNERINC BILLE Perth, Jan. 25. fn the Legislative A;esembly to day, Mr. Piesse resumed the second reading debate on the Electoral Dis tricts Bill.
