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 ?

Dunedin, June 6.
