ALL men would form a combine and
register a vow to avoid noticing
strange women altogether THIS

MR. ROGERS REPLIES
Editor Day Book "Where igno
rance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise."
My good brother, who, no doubt,
speaks very inconsistently when he
casts reflections on me, such as being
simple-minded as priests and politi
cians. I thought my good friend would
have at least a little more respect for
me than to class me with that ele
ment. Not guilty. Unnatural con
ditions caused by the capitalist sys
tem of exploitation is the root of the
evil. Strike at the root, my friend.
In view of the fact that this so
called vice is on the increase, under
this social system, we must do the
best we can by sensible regulation to
keep our chidlren and dear ones from
becoming victims. In order to speak
about vice and what is known as
crime through public opinion it is not
necessary to be a Bunkhouser or a
parasite. An intelligent worker is al
ways interested in bettering condi
tions, whether it be in vice or unem
ployment or other evils. If this does
not suffice to our friend, I am open
at any time to debate, expenses to be
covered by me. Hoping that this will
be taken in the right spirit, I remain.

Several reporters asked the girl for

refused them. One waited until she

her fact and then snapped her. And
Mary cried and begged him not to'

TAX LAND VALUES
Editor Day Book You are right in
your statement that every addition
to the population of Chicago increas
es "the value of the lands owned by
Marshall Field's heirs. Every child
born here, every emigrant or other
person locating in this city helps to
increase the demand for land and
thereby raises the price. This is true
of all land in Chicago, including the
400,000 vacant lots held idle and out
of use, on speculation, for a rise in
This is a natural law and with it
we have no quarrel, but the evil con
nected with it is in permitting indi
viduals to take unto themselves the
value produced by all the people.
However, the remedy is very simple.
All we have to do is to tax this value
into the public treasury and exempt
from taxation all buildings, personal
property, bonds, stock, money in
banks, etc. Tax nothing but the
value of the land and tax it high
enough to raise all the revenue need
ed by the city. The high tax on the
value of the land will lower the price
of land, because it will no longer be
profitable to hold land idle, and land
owners will then be compelled to put
the land to use, thereby giving work
to the army of unemployed, or else
throw their lands on the market for
sale and causing a reduction in price.
