POLL TAX ON DAUGHTERS.

New Zealander Obliged to Pay Upon
Arrival in San Francisco.

That taxation without representation is still enforced in the United States and ought to be suppressed, is the opinion of George Plummer, a wool manufacturer and merchant of Auckland, New Zealand, who, with his three daughters, is making a tour of the globe. Mr. Plummer declares he was obliged to pay a poll tax of $4 for each of his daughters and himself when they arrived in San Francisco from Australia several days ago.

"They said they would return it if we left the country within thirty days," said Mr. Plummer at the Hotel Kupper yesterday. "We have stopped in all of the larger cities in the West from San Francisco, but in my opinion Kansas City far excels any of them in point of industry, progressiveness and metropolitanism. A more beautiful park and boulevard system would be hard to imagine."
