It doe one good to eee an editor of a first- class paper coma oat boldlj and saj Jet the platform be absolute free trade." The people are beginning to think the papers are a 'raid to speak the troth. Isajthe trouble with the country to-daj is landlordism. I qnote from the can? ass of the tene ment hou districts of mj citj: A population of 1,332,773 living in 39,138 tenement booses, of which 2,316 are rear houses; of this swarm- ng population 180,359 are babiee under fire jears. A rear tenement house is a build- ind sbnt In bj other buildings, with out proper drainage, and without resb air. The reason this Is so is because land Is eo high. To take the taxes off of houses, will make bouses cheap, and to put the taxes on land will make land cheap. Yonrs" trulj, C P. COOPEH. Dn bab, Pa., June 19, 94. Dear Sin Tour bold stand tor "'absolute free trade," is grand, and the "single tax" is its logical conclusion, which aim pi j gires God bis rent. All we bare to do is to pass a law for private bands to keep oB and let the rent run into the public treasury. People are anxious to paj the price to exclude from a plat of land to some one, and more anxious to paj into the the public treasury than into private pockets, because it takes the tax off of his home and labor,, therefore hands oB and it will run into the public treasury, and not only give yon your equal right to land but save the enormous expense of the tax collectors. Natural law is marrelous in its simplicity. Truly, C. B. Power. James tow5. N. T., June 1G94. Editor Cbaritox Courixr, Keytesville, Mo., Dear Sin I write to commend your editorial utterances, especially those of U ay 25th last, when yon say 'If the appeal becomes necessary let the Democratic platform be ab solute free trade, cut' down and dig up root and branch the entire infa my." These are wise, patriotic and brave words. They are so because they call forth wisest, most patri otic and eourageoTM principles and tpoUcy the country is saost in need of. Trade! What is trade but a superior mode of proteetrea, ' i. e. the bringing forth or procmring the good things of life. Without trade dvillxationcould cot exist; we would revert to barbarism, w&ere and wben everyone prodsced for him setf the things he used. Production, as ws understand It, cocld not exist without trade. And if we ovet trade, why the interfere wIcq wnatwe must, wita -wnat we tike to, do? All trade shooid be free. It not free, i t is not trads ra the true meaning -c! the word. For just to theexteot that trad is hindered, hasaperec. it lacks the essential chscaeterktJcs of trade: free ex chaegs of production. Bat tariffs, lipases, etc, are not the only things that hasnper and lessen prsduction. Anything and everything tkat make the snaking and possession of things more exftensire than etnerwise would have been the ease, Interfere 1th and lesson the production. Taxes on industry or Its products. of coarse we must have govern ments (nataral, state, county, town ship and taanlcipal) and so must have money wherewith to pay the governmental expenses. Bst be cause this is so, it does not follow that we must tax industry or its products. For apart from industry and its prodacts, there is a source, or fund, specially, as It were, provid ed or designed by Ood (or nature, if yon please.) in the appearance and development of society, for that Terr purpose. I mean for defraying governmental expenses. This fund or source is the community-produced aloe of land, a alae that comes and rises with the appearance and increaee o! population, and grows as population increases and decreases as (and if) population decreases. It is thus a sell regulating fund, or af fair, and works to a nicety. Land values and the need ol government, or the need of money for defraying governmental expenses, all corns from population, this being so, why not taks the one (land valoe) for the other, L e for defraying govern mental expenses? Can anything be mors natural, simple, sensible, and mm The Fourth of July will be observed at Keytesville in a rousing celebration at the Fair Grounds. There will be public speaking, horse-racing, numerous other amuse ments and music by the Dalton Silver Cornet Band. A S200 Display of Fire Worksat Might!

This means a single tax on the vzilai of land irrespective ol area and improvements. Yes, lets adopt the single tax, the discovery of lieory George. The adoption thereof will be as much of an im provement on free trade, as free trade is better than enslaved trade, trade restricted and lesseaed by tar iffs. The single-tax adopted, not only shall we have entirely freed pro duction, but shall also bave freed land, the first and most necessary element, or factor in production. We shall then have freed natural op portunities to the use of free, com peting capital, and to labor. For who will or can hold land out ot use when so to do would ental financial lose? Consequently, land that is now held out of use (for speculative purposes,) would under the single tax be either put to proper use or abandoned, be free to whomsoever wooldfjo on it and nee it. Aod in freeing trade, production and land, we shall have freed, emancipated A,haU have saved the industrial qaestlon, t? hich means plenty and suitable work for all wishing work aod the Jail reward of labor, bosl- oes booming, general propriety and reasonable contentsaeat, involun tary poverty and the fear of such poverty absllshed, and U1 the vices, tates&perance, greed, crimes and deg radation that spring, an the place, from involuntary poverty and the dread ol such poverty, would there by be eradicated. God would be glorified, peace would reign and good would prevail among men; and people would, because then nuey could (arnica now they generally con not) "do onto others as they woild have others do noto them." Hoping and asking that yon will kindly give space in your esteemed paper to this letter and also (if pos sible) to inclosed single-tax platform, I remain, sir. Keepecttully yours, F. G. AxncitaoN P. S. Why not editorially discuss this single-tax question in your pa per,it's a question of great public in terest and people are paying more attention to it than ever before. F.a.A. SIXSLX TAX rLATFORlf. We assert as our fundamental prin ciple the self-evident truth en on dat ed in the declaration ot American in dependence, that all men are created -mile dash $5 to -mile dash $5 3-8-mile dash Purse same as 1st and EDIT ECL3U32S3HL 3? equal and are endowed by their crea tor with certain inalianable rights. We hold that all men are equally entitled to the use and enjoyment of what God has created and of what Is gained by the general growth and Improvement of the community of which they are a part. Therefore no oae should be permitted to hold nat ural opportunities without a fair re tarn to all for any special privilege thus accorded to him, and that val ue which the growth and improve ment ot the community attach to land should be taken for the use of the community. We hold that each man is entitled to all that his labor produces. There fore no tax should be levied on the products of labor. , To carry out these principles we are in favor ot raising all public rev enues for national, state, coucty and municipal prpos-e by a single tax cpon land values, irrespective of improvements, and of the abolition a! all forme of direct and indirect taxation. ;Since In all our states we mw levy some tax oa the alue of load, the single tax can be instituted or the simple and easy way of aboUehlng, oce after another, all other taxes mw levied, and concmensarately in creasing the tax on land valves, un til we draw cpon that one socrce for aU -expenses of government, Cue rev ear e .being divided betweest local goernmenta,etate fpvernmesrts and the .general government, as the rev enue from direct taxes isnowdivid ed between the local .and state gov- ern scents; or a direct assessment be ing scade by tfce genesal government upon the states and paid by them from revenues collected in this man ner. Thecingle tax we propose Is net a tax on Jand.and therefore would sot fall on the use of land aad become a tax on labor. It Is a tax, not on land but on the value of land. .Thas it would not fall on all land, but only on valuable land, and on that not In proportion; to ths use mads of it, bnt la propor to its value the premium which the nser of land must pay to ths owner, either In purchase money or rent, for permission to use valuable land. It would thus be a tax not on the nse or Improvement of land, but on the ownership ot land, taking what would otherwise go to the owner as owner and not as nser. In assessment nnder ths single tax lbllLlo)liiiiSl II E 1st; $3 to 2d and to 1st, $3 to 2d and all values created by individual use or improvement would be excluded, and the only value taken into con sideration would be the value at taching to the bare land by reason of neighborhood, etc., to be deter mined by impartial periodical as sessments. Thus the farmer would have no more taxes to pay than the speculator who held a similar, piece of land idle, and the man .who on a city lot erected a valuable building would be taxed no more than the man who held a similar lot vacant. The single tax, in short, would call upon men to contribute to the pub lic revenues, not in proportion to what they produce or accumulate, but in proportion to the vaJneot the natural opportunities they hold. It would compel them to pay just as mnch for, holdtag land idle as for putting it to its fullest use. The single tax therefore would I. Take the weight of taxation off of the agricultural districts where land has little or no value irreepec tiro of improvements, aad pat itoa towns and cities where bare land ris es to a valoe of millions of dollars per acre. . Dispense with a BauItfcHcrty of taxes and a korde of tax-gatherers; simplify goecnment and greatly re dace its cost. i?. Do away with the fraud, cor ruption aadross inequality insepa rable from e)ur present methods of (cation, which allow the rich to es cape wniie cney gnna the poor. Load cannot be hid or carried off, and its valae.can be ascertained with greater eaaend certainty th&n any othor. 4 Give us with all the worid as perfect freedom of trade as now ex ists between she states of our Union, thus-enabling our people to share, throcgh free exchanges, in all the advantages which natcre has given to other countries, or which the pe culiar skill of other people has enab led them to attain. It would destroy the trusts, monopolies aad corrup tions which are the outgrowths of ths tariff. It would do away with ths fines and penalties now levied on anyone who Im proves a farm, erects a house, builds a machine, or in any way adds to the general stock of wealth. It would leave everyone free to apply labor orexpendcapital In production or exchange without fine or restriction, and would leave to each the fall product of his sxer-tion. $2 to 3d. 2 to 3d. d. ' 5. It would, on ths other hand, bj taking for public use that value which attaches to land by reason of the growth and improvement of the community, make the holding of land unprofitable to the mere owner, and profitable only to the user. It would thus make it impossible for speculators and monopolists to hold natural opportunities unused or on ly half-used, and would throw open, to labor the illimitable field of em ployment which the earth offers to man. It would thus solve the labor problem, do away with involuntary poverty, raise wages in all occupa tions to the full earnings of labor, make over-production impossible-nn-til all human wants are satisfied, render labor-saving inventions a blessing to all and cause such an enormous production and such an equitable distribution of wealth ass would give to all comfort, leisure and participation in the advantages of an advancing civilization. With respect to monpolies other than the monpoly of land, we hold that where free competition becomes) impossible, as in telegraphs, rail roads, water and gas supplies, etc, such business becomes a proper so cial function, which should be con trolled and managed by and for the whole people concerned, through their proper government, local state or national, as may be.
