Income Tax. MAN WHO EARNED ASOVEREIGN STILL UNDER~AN OBLIGATION. WHAT THE COMMISSIONERS WANT. The Taxation Department building in George street North resembles -a general information bureau and is al ways in a state of siege. This is due to the fact that the Commissioners have started out on their collection campaign and taxpayers are anxious to know how they stand. In order to make the position clear and to remove any misapprehension, Mr. Wlilddon, Chief Commissioner, made the following statements: . "Every person who earned one sov ereign in 1914 is under an obligation to make a return just as it was in 1896 and the penalty for not so doing is now £100. The Act is clear on the point, but you can say now that the Commissioners are not going to rush that particular person unless it is so desired.

Zeppelin Raid on London GERMAN'S TRUMP CARD. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 8 January 1915
Zeppelin Raid on London GERMAN'S TRUMP CARD. Writing in "London Opinion," under the heading of "Tho Coming Bombs," James Douglas dcnls with the possi bllity of u Zeppelin raid on England. The war, he says, has taught one les son, to wit, that Germany prepared for war more thoroughly than France, Rus sia, or Great Britain. Her organisa tion is superb. There has never been anything to equal it. In only one re spect does our organisation surpass hors-our navy is irrestiblc. But In "tv;o respects Germany has staggered the world. Her submarines have pro* ved their eliicicncy, and her artillery lias revolutionised wnrfnee.- Liege, N'amur, Maubeuge, and Antwerp prove that the day of the ring-fortress Is over. The German howitzers are the capital surprise of the war. The 1 question we have got to face is wheth- &lt; cr Germany has another trump enrd I up her sleeve. Can she secure coin-I mand of the air? There is a silly tendency to assume that Germany has played all her air cards. ...

Nicholls, secretary of the Master Butchers' As* HodaUoii, declares that the retail trade h in a disastrous condition, and that the necessity for Government actiou i: urgent. Mr. Nicholls said that the wholesale price of beef bodies in Sydney was lAd per lb. while for the highest qualities i 43d'was the ruling rate; and it was expected that the prices to-day would be still higher. At a low estimate, there was 1301b. of bone, without rec koning uny of the other waste prod* ucts, in a 7001b. body, and it 'would thus be seen that the retuilcr to make a profit must ask a big price. As n matter of fact, none of the retailers were making profits at all now. They had all they could do to make ends meet, while many were actually los ing money In the hope of recovering themselves by retaining and increas ing custom when better times came. He believ...

Motor Notes The motor tax is now being collec ted. Tills-is payable at the local police office when renewing licenses. So far several motorists at Young have up. Many motorists who use oil lamps Jmvo experienced the difficulty of en* surlng their always keeping alight. They aro liable both to blow out and J to jolt out, more especially if they are I not kept in good order. Care should be taken to use a good quality oil, and to completely empty and clean the re servoir periodically. A new wick al so ought to be fitted Crom time to time. It is strange that acetylene tail lamps are not In more general use; they are far more r&llable, and give a better light.

An electric lamp, is, of course, the sim plest of all, but, it, too, is liable to failure. A tell-tale lamp on t...
