Tax Resistance in Canada.

Two hundred Irish settlers on the Stag creek section of Gatineau district, [illegible] miles north of the city, have refused for three years to pay a county tax. When a deputy sheriff went to make seizures, the residents threatened to string him to the nearest tree. Finally, they compelled him to eat the writs he had, and then gave him a limited time to get out of the township. Militia will be sent to aid the officials.
