THE DEATH TAX.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir, —Mr Goschen is taxing those whose fortunes are considerable by imposing a death duty tax. He is evidently looking in the same direction as your humble correspondent, although, perhaps, not quite so revolutionary at first. We must all be satisfied with compromises. W T ould not a tax in this direction for New Zealand be more equitable for the toilers and workers than the obnoxious revenue one called Protection ? Let the watchword be “Prom each according to his means; to each according to his wants.” Whichever party rules should always remember this: A Tory Government to commence the inauguration is, to say the least, remarkable.—l am, etc., Lumper. Dunedin, June 6.
