Blomfield, John Collis, 1873-1942 :Still they come. [Wellington, New Zealand Free Lance, 7 January 1905]
- Blomfield, John Collis, 1878-1942
Shows Chinese men leaping over a wall marked New Zealand, aided by a pole marked 100 pound poll tax. Behind them are many more Chinese. They are watched in horror by Premier Richard Seddon and by Joseph Ward . Refers to the imposition of the poll tax on Chinese immigrants, and the perception that too many Chinese are still arriving in New Zealand
Copied from The Free Lance, 7 January 1905, p. 7
Extended Title - Sir Joe - 'Look, Dick. It's up to us to do something.' King Dick - 'Yes, by Jove. The wall's got to go up a bit higher. If a £100 poll tax won't keep the yellow agony out then we'll have to slap on another hundred.' Twenty chinamen arrived yesterday, and the Treasury benefited to the tune of £2000 - daily paper.
