"Forest Mills" Underwear for Women New Fall and Winter Stocks Now Ready for Your Selection STRIKE NOW (Contributed) The financial plight of the Na tional Government has created an unusual opportunity to impress some facts upon Congressmen. The present revenue law, with its host of mean and petty taxes, its burdens on labor, its interference with trade, its hampering of in dustry and thrift in countless ways, and its inquisitorial features has at last driven the patient and long suffering American citizen to pro test. The protest has been made silently. There have been no great mass meetings, no scare heads in the daily press, no articles in the big magazines, no publicity of any kind. What open agitation has ap peared, outside of the labor and rad ical press, has been for relief from the features of the law irksome to the very wealthy, but this has been linked with demands for substitution of taxes more oppressive upon the poor. So little has the Administra tion been aware of popular feeling on the subject that the Secretary of the Treasury recently recommend- Ed imposition of more taxes —on in dustry, of course. Then something happened. Congress rebelled. It takes a very strong force to make a Congressman refuse to obey or ders from a recently installed ad ministration of his own party. The Administration quickly surrendered to the Congressional protests. The Congressmen must have revealed something to which Mr. Mellon and his colleagues had been blind. To one thing only can this result be attributed. Congressmen were flooded with protests from consti tuents. Under the circumstances these letters had to be exceedingly numerous to accomplish anything, ft takes many expressions from con stituents to overrule the recommen dations of i member of the Cabi net. So when an average Con gressman refuses to obey orders we know what must have happened. So strong must these protests have been, coming spontaneously from individuals without knowledge of each other, that Congress has be come panic-stricken and is hastily trying to reduce taxation. While in this chastened and humble frame of mind its attention should be called to economic truths which, had they not been ignored, would have prevented popular discontent and saved the Treasury from its pres ent plight. Congress might have imposed a land value tax four years ago in stead of the collection of nuisance taxes it imposed. Congressman Crosser, of Ohio, had introduced a bill to that effect at the time. Labor organizations, farmers' or ganizations, many business organ izations and many civic organiza tions had demanded such taxation. No demand was openly made by anyone for taxes on amusements, on ice cream, railroad tickets, or -mall incomes. But some myster ious influence made the then Sec retary 'if the Treasury, Mr. Mac- Adoo, accept the recommendation of socalled "economic experts" and urge upon Congress the monstros ity that is now the revenue law in stead of the legislation demanded by popular organiations. Congress, disregarding popular demands, slav ishly obeyed its master's voice. The last Congress had a chance to remedy this wrong by passing the Nolan bill. It failed to do so. The present Congress has an op portunity in the Keller bill for land values taxation. By passing that bill many more iniquitous taxes can be repealed than are contemplated in the bill approved by the Ways and Means Committee. These are the facts which Con gressmen should learn. This is the psychological moment. Single Tax* ers should promptly take advantage of it. Write at once. Strike while the iron it hot.—The Bulletin of the National Single Tax League.

The fact is obvious to all observant Single Taxers. But though the moral applies, it is seldom applied. The average newspaper editor does not know enough to apply it. If he does know, the owner of the paper ob jects. The Single Taxer notices the glaring omission and perhaps, writes a letter to the editor. The letter may be published, but very few readers, except those who write letters themselves, read what ap pears in the contributed column. More often the letter does not ap pear. In any event it does not go far. The newspaper continues to shed darkness on most vital sub jects. It performs this function with remarkable efficiency. The daily papers are now record ing Congress' struggle with the rev enue problem. It reminds one of a blind man frantically trying to discover the whereabouts of a lu minous object directly under his nose. Congressmen and newspaper men seem equally blind. The Sin gle Taxer can see, but the blind men are too busy arguing with each other to follow his directions. There is the same trouble with the hous ing situation, the coal shortage, the railroad problem, the high cost of living, disarmament, industrial de pression, and countless other mat ters asociated with the land or tax ation problem. Those entrusted with power to act or advise are blind and ignorant. Those who know what to do are virtually gag ged and fettered. The way out of this trouble is through a single tax daily, a paper that will show, day after day, the easy solution of seemingly hard economic problems, will make clear the inexcusable ignorance of many entrusted with the task of conduct public affairs, and will perform the one vitally important function which other newspapers neglect. For is suing of such a paper preparations are now being made. The work is in the hands of Benj. J. Salmon. The paper is to be called by the title given by Henry George to the weekly organ of which he was edi tor. Subscription price will be one dollar a month.

Suppression of the "one big union" principle and decision to enlist with the farmers' faction in political affairs were agreed upon by the convention of the Brother hood of Railway Carmen at To ronto. The General Federation of Trade Unions in Canada has an aggre gate membership of 1,583,058, as against 1,480,108 last year, and its annual income has greatly exceed ed all previous records. The executive board of the Unit ed Mine Workers of America au thorized continuance of the strike in the Mingo County (W. Va.) field and also ordered support for miners declared to have been locked out in western Washington. A number -of British trade unions are taking advantage of the op portunity which peace in the in dustrial field offers them to ad just their own domestic difficul ties and in developing and strength- ing their organizations to meet the turbulent demands of their mem bers. With the exception of the Electrical Trade union, the amal gamation of the Engineering Trade union is complete and working sat isfactorily. Martin F.

The British Favor Health Insurance H arrisburgi Pa., Sept. 18.—In a report to the Pennsylvania health insurance commission, made pub lic yesterday, on the results of an official investigation into the op eration of the British health in surance act, William T. Ramsey, chairman of the commission, and Ordway Tead, expert, set forth the conclusion that workmen's health insurance in England has proved "a distinctly forward step in social legislation," and that British ex periments "can and should be used as the basis for wiser measures designed specially to meet Ameri can conditions and needs." Chairman Ramsey and Mr. Tead, in the course of a field inquiry in England, interviewed over 50 rep resentative persons, including gov ernment officials, employers, union officials, commercial insurance com pany officials, insured workers and doctors. Opinion of all groups was favorable, and those cited to the investigators by American critics as opposed were found to be against details only, while approving the act as a whole. "The health insurance act has unquestionably leveled up the stand ard of medical service which is giv en in England," the report asserts. In a statement issued in connec tion with the report, Dean William Draper Lewis of Philadelphia, mem ber of the commission, declares that the findings with respect to the British health insurance act con stitute "the one piece of work done by the Commission which is of en during value." Contrary to widely circulated re ports in America, the report states, British doctors are now as a whole in favor of the act. "It has brought a degree of economic independence in the profession which is unpre cedented," says the report, "and has served as a spur to better work manship and to the enlistment in the profession of more young men and women than the medical schools have ever before had." American proposals for health in surance laws by providing for the full co-operation, and advice of doctors without permitting dictation have, according to the report, given heed to a warning out of British experience. "It will be a serious mistake," says the report, "to allow those who are accustomed to think that they 'have a vested interest in ill health,' to dictate how much or how little medical service the commun ity shall provide for itself on a public and universal basis. When basic policies are being determined the experts should be on tab but not on top." The report asserts that "hun dreds of thousands of persons under the British Act, it is universally agreed, seek medical advice now who would not have afforded it before; and they seek it promptly. They seek it, as the doctors told us, at a stage when the length and seriousness of the illness can usually be reduced." Among the outstanding advant ages of the British act, the report finds, is the impetus it has given to a more extensive and better ad ministered public health program. Workmen's health insurance legis lation for America, the report con cludes, should include "medical and institutional service freely available for all employed persons and for their families, with cash benefits for physically incapacitated workers out of a fund created by joint con tributions." Contract Used to Strangle Freedom James O'Connell, president of the Metal Trades Department of the A. F. of L., has received this form of "individual contract" in use by the Moore Drop Forging Company at its plant in Springfield and Chicopee, Mass.: "I apply to Moore Drop Forging Company for employment as (blank) and if employed agree that such employment will be upon the fol lowing terms and conditions: Wages (blank). Hours of labor: to be arranged as employer may deem expedient not exceeding (blank) hours in any one week. Overtime: To be optional, for which time and a half will be paid. Factory con ditions are accepted as satisfactory and will not be the subject of a controversy during my employment, though suggestions for improve ment will be welcomed by em ployer. I understand that employ ment is upon a strictly non-union basis and I agree that while re tained in employment I will not be or become a member of any trade union. That if I hereafter apply for membership in« any trade union I will at once notify my employer, who may thereupon terminate my employment. That upon termina tion of my employment for any rea son I will not in any manner an noy, molest or interfere with the business, customers or employes of said employer." In the September number of the American Federationist President Gompers deals a body blow to the "individual" wage contract in gen eral and forcefully analyzes the Moore contract in particular. "It is difficult to understand," he writes, "how any employer attempt ing to operate a modern industrial enterprise can hope to achieve suc cess in relations with workers on the basis of a document as com pletely autocratic as the contract by which the Moore Drop Forging Com pany seeks to enslave its em ployes. Every sense of justice is outraged by such a document. The entire concept of democracy in in dustry is made void by its use. In dustrial life is plunged back to the day of the tyrant and serf where ever workmen are compelled to work and live under the terms of a contract of this character. These contracts are not signed freely by workmen. They are signed only under duress and thus, even at the very' outset, they constiute a denial of freedom of action. No worker signs away his rights freely. He does so only under compulsion. It is a prinicple that a contract signed under duress or compulsion is void in law and in fact. It is reprehen sible to compel workers to renounce their industrial franchise, their right to exercise a voice in co-op eration with their fellow workers." In 1919 the bureau of labor sta tistics reports there were 3,374 j strikes in the United States. THE LABOR JOURNAL PRICES ARE STILL RISING Changes in Retail Prices of Food in the United States. The retail food index issued by the United States Department of Labor through the Bureau of La bor Statistics shows that there was an increase of 4.3 per cent in the retail cost of food to the average family in August as com pared with July. Prices of 43 food articles are re ported to the Bureau of Labor Sta tistics each month by retail dealers in 51 important cities. From these prices average prices are made for each article. These average prices are then "weighted" according to the quantity of each article con sumed in the average workingman's family. From January, 1913, to December, 1920, 22 articles of food were used in this index, but from January, 1921, 43 articles are in cluded in the index number, Changes in One Month During the month from July 15, 1921, to August 15, 1921, 27 of the 43 articles on which monthly prices are secured, increased in price as follows: Potatoes, 24 per cent; strictly fresh eggs, 13 per cent; pork chops, cheese and cabbage, 11 per cent; butter, 10 per cent; lard, 8 per cent; sugar, 6 per cent; can ned tomatoes, 5 per cent; ham and oranges, 4 per cent; nut margarine, 3 per cent; plate beef, fresh milk, oleomargarine, and corn meal, 2 per cent; and bacon, rolled oats, rice, canned corn, canned peas, and prunes, 1 per cent.

Wholesale Prices In August Wholesale prices of many im portant foodstuffs showed a strong upward tendency during August, according to information gathered by the United States Department of Labor through the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Among articles showing decided price advances were butter, cheese, milk, eggs, meats, sugar, fruits, and potatoes. Meat animals, including cattle and hogs, also averaged higher in August than in July. As measured by the Bureau's weighted index number, food artic les in the aggregate were nearly 13% per cent higher in August than in the month before. Farm products, including many food items in the raw state, were 2% per cent higher. In all other groups, ex cept that of cloths and clothing, decreases took place, ranging from 1 per cent in the case of building materials to 4 per cent in the case of metals. Cloths and clothing ar ticiles showed no change in the general price level. All commodi ties, considered as a whole, were approximately 2% per cent higher than in July. Of 327 commodities, or series of quotations, for which comparable data for July and August were obtained, increases were found to have occurred for 99 commodities and decreases for 123 commodities. In 105 cases no change in price took place in the two months. Below are shown the index num bers of wholesale prices in the United States, by groups of com modities, as computed by the Bur eau of Labor Statistics for the months named. The figures for the last named month are pre liminary and subject to revision. The base used in computing these index numbers is the average for the calander year, 1913. articles were over 35 per cent cheaper. Fuel and lighting mater ials decreased 32 per cent, and chemicals 25 per cent in the per iod. Miscellaneous commodities, in cluding such important articles as cottonseed meal and oii, lubricating oil, jute, rubber, millfeed, soap, newsprint and wrapping paper, and tobacco, decreased nearly 39 per cent in the period.
