The laws of the state represent the

Without further lengthening this

that the service rendered by our

During my c-umpuUn for the nom

during my campaign preceding the
general election. I have given the
people the best service I could pos

the people, Irrespective of party, will
endorse a public service faithfully

every plain and upon every hilltop.

our brave sons have been beaten In

Chief among the questions of the
hour is the permanent improvement
and building of public roads. The
public roads of the commonwealth
are Its first great highways of com
merce. They constitute the strong
est link in the chain of commercial
greatness and are the first evidences
of commercial progress. Duild more

commercial activities will follow as

The public schools of the state are
truly its great universities, and the
real achievements of a people are
measured by the efficiency of their
system of popular education. Look,
well to the education of the youth of
the land, for therein lies the safety
and hope of the future, for no state
or nation can rise above the intelli
gence of its citizens. While we have
a good public school system, yet we
should endeavor to increase Its effi
ciency and improve the service. Our
public school teachers are progress
ive, and we should enact laws which
will enable them to give the people
the maximum benefits and bring the
opportunities of a liberal education
to the door of every home. The con
stitution requires that at least one
fourth of all the revenues be given to
the public schools and, realizing that
popular education is the first element
of state and national success, the
Democratic party adopted the policy
of giving, not one-fourth, but one-
third of all the revenues to the pub
lic schools and extended the helping
hand to the we?5, i.o that every boy
and girl in the land might be given
the best opportunities to equip him

to see that this would be a very
dangerous condition of affairs. In
fact any way way you look at the
single tax proposition it presents
itself an impracticable and dager
ous system. The safe and sane
thing to do is to vote "no" on the
single tax amendment. In discuss
ing the single tax don't lose sight
of the fact that the proposed am end
ment repeals all constitutional and
statute tax limitations. If these
amendments carry there is no limit
to the taxes the tax commission
may levy. And with more than
one-half of the voters nonpayers it
is easy to see how taxes would soar
sky high. It's a plain problem in
mathematics. The dividend is the
amount of taxes required, the divis
on is the kinds of property that are
assessed for tax purpose, the quoti
ent is the tax rate. If you reduce
the divisor by striking out personal
property, you will raise the quotient
the tax rate. You can't get awa y
from it, hence tho proposed single
tax amendment repeals all the tax
limitations aud safeguards and
makes the only limit the blue
heavens above. -Centralia Courier.
Single Tax Comment.
Should the single tax amendment
carry we should have two classes of
citizens, tax payers and non-tax
payers. The taxpayers would bear
all the burden or road and bridge,
school, city, county and state taxes
and have no additional privileges
conferred upon them. The non-
taxpayers would not be called upon
to support the roads, bridges,
schools, towni. or state and yet
would have all the privileges con
ferred upon the taxpayers. When
it came to voting, bonds, tax levys
and money for any public purpose,
the non-taxpayers would vote "yes"
because it would cost him nothing,
and the taxpayer would be more
non-taxpayers to vote "yes" than
there would be taxpayers to vote
"no." We would thus have class
distinctions, the privileged non
taxpayer and the non-privileged
taxpayers. Class distinction would
be get class hatred and soon one
half the citizenship would be array
ed against the other half. It is easy
