We have heard President Taft
referred to as an ordinary thief,
?tc. It is well to remember that
Mr. fTaft Is ntlll our President and

office is to lose our own self
respect ns a nation..
The Missouri Anti Single Tax
League announces to the farmers
that the unpurchasablc press of
the . ntntc is making it possible
to defeat Single Tax. The
League urges the farmers and

of the local press In ho hour of
critical distress. Ex.
If all voter who do not own
rca le-state voted in favor of
Single Tax, It would carry. Hut
we have move faith in the honesty
of our people. If is is so easy
to vote other people's pro
perty away, why not call another
election and vote to divide all
the money In our banks It ought
to bo easy to get n majority In
favor of such a proposition. One
is about as fair as the other.
