Reference Number: PUBL-0163-1898-001

New Zealand premier Richard John Seddon standing in suit and top hat to the right, a label marked 'Dog tax' in his right hand. Behind him, to the left, a Maori man makes threatening gestures, while a fierce chained dog leaps towards him, snarling. A fenced whare and cabbage tree are in the left background. Refers to strained relations between Maori and the New Zealamd government and to a proposal for a tax on dog ownership, which would affect many Maori.
