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.

Every day things happen to
which a single tax moral applies.
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.

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
"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

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."

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,

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
