,THE SINGLE TAX.
Tho National Single Tax
Longuo 1ms boon circulating in
every State in tho Ainorican
Union a potition praying that tho
sovornl Legislatures will enact
such measures us will lesult in
tho collection o nil public
revenues from tho viilue o land
without regard to improvements
on it niul from no other source.
On the roverso sido of tho peti
tions is tho following argument
ative language in regard to tho
utility and necessity of tho singlo
tax, which is reproduced for the
THE 8INOLU TAX.
The singlo ta means tho aboli
tion of all taxes on industry or qu
its products and tho tnking for
public purposes, by tho taxation
of land vnlues irrespective of im
provements, of that fund arising
Irom tho gonornl growth and
dovolopmont which constitutes tho
natural, just and sufficient Bourco
of publio revenues.
To tax labor or its products is
to discourago industry and de
crease tho gouoral wealth.
To tax land values is to dis
courage the greatest of monopolies
which prevent industry and lesson
the cenornl wealth.
It will render it impossible for
any one to exact for his private
benefit a toll from others for tho
use of those bouuties of nature to
which all have- tho equal right of
use, and compel ovoryono holding
valuable natural opportunities
either to utilize them by tho om
ploymont of labor or pormit others
to do so.
It will thus open opportunities
of work for all and will secure to
each the full reward of his work.
As a result involuntary poverty
will cease; the greed, iutempor
auco and vice that spring from
poverty, or tho dread of poverty,
will disappear, and a reosonablo
equality of condition, born oMho
equality of access to natural op
portunities, will take tho place of
an increasingly monstrous in

A FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES AND CUTLERY.
In a Coast newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
we read that dealers in bicy
cles are authority for the state
ment that the business aspect
of the bicycle trade has mate
rially changed during the past
year. Instead of the main
business consisting in dealing
with men's wheels, .quite the
contrary, is true. Dealers are
now doing their utmost to
attract the eyes of the women.
All of which shows that the
ladies are taking very kindly
to bicycle riding all over the
world. And it is the same
here, the demand for ladies'
wheels is continually increas
ing. We have received five
of the TRIBUNE LADIES'
WHEELS on this steamer and
have more on the way. These
wheels are of this year's make,
direct from the factory, no back
numbers, and have all the latest
We have also a number of
Tribune racers and gent's road
sters, and a number of "Zim
mv" wheels. This is an en
tirely new machine, named
after the great rider, Zimmer
mann, and we shall be pleased
to explain its merits to in
But we started in to say a
few words on CUTLERY, of
which we received an im
mense assortment on the Aus
tralia, which is now unpacked
and on exhibition. In table
cutlery we have an immense
variety in new and elegant
patterns and all sizes. In pock
et cutlery we have a number
of new designs. Knives to
cut lead pencils and knives to
trim your finger nails with, and
knives to cut down your ex
penses with. We have prun
ing knives which are just the
thing for the members of the
Legislature to use in cutting
down the appropriation bills,
and some suitable for the Ad
vertiser man to do his "cheese
paring" with. In fact we
have all kinds of knives, large
and small, light or heavy, but
all of them of the best quality
We have earning knives
with ivory, buckhorn or bone
handles, butcher knives, skin
ning knives, knives with cork
screws in them for camping
out or staying at home. In
fact we have all sorts of knives,
suitable for all sorts and con
ditions of people.
