Sale of revenue stamps in Queensland - 1886

Article on the sale of revenue stamps in Queensland

Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Friday 9 July 1886, p. 2
Hitherto it has been the practice to allow a commission on the sale of duty and postage stamps to Sub-collectors of Customs, Clerks of Petty Sessions and other Government officials. In no case will the commission be allowed in future. The Post and Telegraph Department will in future at all of its offices throughout the colony supply excise as well as postage stamps, and the total proceeds will be paid into consolidated revenue.
