(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 December 1875
(FreoM OU R OWN CoItI-SrOUNESTi) Saturday evening. After the experience we have had, I think it connot be disputed but that payment of members is a mistake of the very pIonounced order, for the proof of which I will simply refer my readers to -Iansard, or the news paper reports. It is to be hoped that at the next election constituents will make it a condition that their elected member will vote for the abolition of this infamous muzzle 1uon the convictions of honorable members. Tust shining light, Mr. G. V. Smith, whose appearance would- justify persons in Ire surling him to be au undertaker's sute out of situation, informed his constituents that lio approved of the relluneratioll of members of Parliament. It would indeed have been strange if he did otherwise, because I fancy, in common with many others, that politics would be to that hion. gentleman ;a profitless 1 nirsuit if paymenllt of members was with Could I really believe myself a Victorian, J frankly aro w that I should be a...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 December 1875
THE debate on the budget las at length terminated, and thanks to those mem bers of the Assembly who did not care about facing their constituents, SIR JAMEs IM'CULLocii has secured a ma jority of fifteen in favor of his financial scheme. We must confess that we are utterly at a loss to account on purely political grounds for this result, when it is taken into consider ation that SI, JAMES M'CULLOCII'S financial policy is, but a rehash of his predecessors, with the obnoxious impost of an income tax tacked on to it. It is monstrous that a young colony like Victoria should thus early be saddled with an income tax. This is a measure which is rarely resorted to in extreme cases, and when we have thousands of acres of unimproved lands in the colony which ire not taxed at all, and which should be made to make up any de ficency in the revenue, it is the more iniquitous. To change the entire system of taxation in any country without allowing the body of the people to give expression to their ...
