TAXATION TO OPEN AUSTRALIAN LAND South Wales Labor Government Proposes Bill to Cut Up Big Estates OPPOSITION TURNS TO COURTS Constitutionality of the Levy on Population Values Will Be Contested SYDNEY, N. S. W., Dec. 10.—The land tax bill of the new Labor gov ernment is monopolizing public atten tion to a great extent because, directly or indirectly, it affects the interests of more people In a tangible and substan tial fashion than any bill that has seen the light of day in any Australian legislature. No legislative proposal hitherto Introduced In this country will have anything like such imme diate effects upon individual citizens as this measure if carried in its pres ent form promises to have unless it altogether falls to fulfill the Intention of its authors. The case for the imposition of some form of land taxation by the federal parliament can be stated briefly. There is a case for It now, and a fairly strong one. Whether that case Justifies a tax In this form Is another question. First, large areas of land suitable for agriculture are certainly at present locked up In the hands of wealthy holders and are not put to their most productive uses. The extent of this evil Is always exaggerated, but the evil Is undoubtedly there, and In the Interests or Immigration and defense, lf for no other reasons, requires to be cured. It is not so easy for the small farmer as it ought to bo to get land not too remote and suitable for culti vation on a email scale. Second, the state parliaments have had this evil before their eyes for a long time, but they have up to the present taken no vigorous or properly effective steps to cure It. DESPATWF.n Or BTATB ACTION With them land taxation was a duty, and they are directly responsible for letting It pass into other hands and upon a scale that makes any kind of equity, not to speak of equality of sac rifice, all but Impossible. Third and last the electors undoubtedly gave their sanction April 13 last to the Im position of some form of graduated land taxation, calculated to "burst up" the big estates containing land suitable for closer settlement. They did this because In most cases they despaired of state action, long over due, and still either neglected or in operative. There Is, to begin with, the fundamental question whether, taking for granted all the evil results of state inactivity In the past, the federal-par liament can be the proper authority to correct these. In other words, is it constitutionally entitled. In the appar ent exercise of Its taxing powers, to regulate the conditions of land hold ing in the states? This is, In one of Its aspects, a dry question of law, which is certain to be submitted to the judgment of the high court as soon as the tax cornea Into operation, and constitutional lawyers scorn much divided as to what the answer will be. On the precedent of the new protection cases, where the high court held that the federal parliament could not, by pre tending- to impose an excise tax, regu lato the conditions of workers in fac tories, there seems to be some ground for the anticipation that the gradu ated land tax, which under the guise of a tax undoubtedly regulates the condition^ of the holding of land, will be disallowed. At all events, this is the main ground on which Mr. Deakin, leader of the opposition, has based his adverse amendment. WlXIi TEST CONSTITUTION A LITT Even assuming the tax to be consti tutional in the legal sense, It is still quite possible for it to be unconsti tutional In the political sense, the op position claims. Mr. Deakin claims that it strains the federal powers to their utmost and imposes a. limitation on the freedom of the states to control thair land policy—which they alone can control effectively—and on the state powers of taxation. Though this may be consistent with the bare words of the constitution, It is claimed that it Is not consistent with the mainte nance of the equilibrium of govern mental powers, and means, in effect. the transfer of a governmental power of the first importance from local authorities, which can exercise it ef fectively, to one central authority, which for both constitutional and practical reasons cannot. It Is not argued that every form of federal land taxation is obnoxious, but only that form with which the people are now confronted, since while affecting to be a tax for revenue purposes it in effect controls the size of land hold- Ings In the states. It is argued that it may be a good thing that the com monwealth should be now investetd with the power with which the con stitution has not endowed it to legis late on this question, but that it is not a good thing that It should obtain or •exercise the power by a subterfuge. These considerations will not prevent the passage of the bill. It is out of fashion now to show any regard for the maintenance of the federal prin ciple on which the whole of the con stitution was deliberately and care fully founded. The people have be come impatient >.f any barriers that stand between the majority and the Immediate realization of th^ir political aspirations, even though they tii.m- Mlves placed the Harrier where it is only ten years ago. WOMAN AWARDED $2500 FOR DEATH OF HUSBAND The jury in the case of Louise ' Eckberger against the American Bee! Sugar company yesterday returned a verdict In ravor "f the plaintiff toi $2600.
