From the Adelaide Mail (excerpts):
Won’t Increase Their Liabilities
The difficulty of finding money to pay the Federal land tax is forcing well-known men into an attitude of “passive resistance,” according to a statement issued by the Graziers’ Federal council.
Agents, it is stated, have advised their clients to sit down and do nothing, and men are gradually being led into this attitude rather than go one increasing their liability by further borrowing.
The article goes on to give a number of details about the tax, but no further information about the threatened resistance, alas.
