Circular, fr. F. J. Cheney & Co., Tole Ja, Oiiio- j - THE PROPERTY RIGHTS. Written Especially for The Commer cial by Lowe Shearon, 225 East 18th Street, New York. New York, Aug. 22. In your is sue of Aug. 12 Mr. George Lloyd, sec retary of the Single Tax Party, 201 West 13t'a street. New York, says all men have an equal right to use land. Thi3 is true, but the extent of that right -depends altogeher on the amount of diligence used by the oc cupant of land in producing things from that land. If some one else will use that land to produce the necessi ties of life so as to sell them at a less the occupant should yield to his more worthy competitor. This, of course, is considering the matter as an abstract problem in an endeavor ! to set at true property rights as de flned hl Hadleys Economics where .... he S3T3: True PPerty right is something quite distinct from the fact of possession or from the claims j which much possession gives the oc- cupant." Property in a legal sense, however, means those thing3 designated by law as property. Thus the right to occupy land is made a legal right, but a3 such it Is only a true proper ty right insofar as the occupant agrees to use that land for the best advantage of all. If we follow out the idea of fair competition we find that there could be no such thing as an unearned increment in anything, and since property injand is based wholly on the unearned increment it follows that land cannot properly be called property, no matter wheth er that be private or common proper ty. To say that land, per se, is prop erty is an economic fallacy. True property is wealth created by human effort. Therefore land is not true property. The right to occupy land is only a relative property right de pendent on the degree of diligence used in making that land yield to the best advantage of all.' If we were to incorporate this prin ciple of relativity in the right to use land that right would become a true property right. Then if we adopt the single tax as a method for raising such revenue as may be necessary to meet absolutely necessary govern ment expenses, both local and state as well as federal expenses, have free trade, but require fair competition in importing by requiring the naming of import prices a year in advance, we would have, a just economic system and a fair distribution of wealth. Thi3 is the very soundest argument that can possibly be made for the single tax, and is a much sounder ar gument than the single taxers them selves make. To urgo the single tax on the ground that land should be made common property is a fallacy because land cannot be made true property, either common or private, if we argue from now to doomsday. If we carefully follow out the idea of fair and intelligent competition which requires that employers state in advance a rate of compensation with which they will content them selves, which would make it neces sary for them to name prices in ad vance of a season instead of jumping them up and down as at present, we will find that there is no loophole whatever left for such a thing as an unearned increment in anything. Even in case of a wheat crop failure there would be no increase in the price of wheat on hand because it would all have been arranged in ad vance. That on hand would have to be prorated among the consumers at the price agreed upon and the con sumer could not resell until he had first obtained a license to sell and this license to sell must be obtained in advance Of any season so as to re- quire that the seller act in fair and open competition with others instead of holding over the consumer the ' s1iit rt t tmmnillatd n nn1 n a Via Aaa at . t. i viuu va. luiiucuiato ugcu no . i vj u i present. Thus we see that the de plorable condition in industry lies in the fact that our economists have spent more time in trying to recon cile errors of the past with correct practice rather than in trying to ar range fair competition which, on .the face of it, makes intelligent foresight necessary. How many horse races or athletic competitions or even outright gam bling games would there be Jf the rules for such contests were not made in advance? If we had as fair com petition in industry as we have ln sports and games of chance industry would become even more attractive than sports becaluse industry is al- iituut.iiy lueio wuuiu uo wunu ""'""Times, prizes fcr everybody.

When this is done all things will be lovely and the goose will hang high. If we will all put on our thinking caps and pull them far enough down over our heads and let them stay there long enough be fore we think we have hatched out a correct idea we will all come to the same conclusion, for fair competition carried to its logical conclusion re sults every time in co-operation getting that which belongs to you and seeing that others get what be longs to them so that they will help ypu in geting your own rights. As Spinoza teaches, self-interest is the basis of all that is best in man, or as Shakespeare says, "To thine own self be true, etc." v Christian Endeavor Clippings. There havo been few periods in the history of our country when so fruit ful a field awaited action by the Christian Endeavorers as is the case to-day. Their Sixth World Congress in in session. Wherever they may glance they will find a dire need for spiritual awakening, for moral bet terment. It is not tho voice of the few ravens among us that calls for a change. Sensible men everywhere are alive to the downward trend. The great religious and moral revival that was to follow the war did not materialize. The churches have ad mitted their inability to cope with the dangers that surround the grown, the growing, the third generation. Insead of treading the straight re ligious path, people have veered Into by-ways only fitfully lighted by silly superstitions and sillier fads. To be true to their ideals, the En deavorers must not mis3 this rare op portunity. Of course they mupt be careful not to ask too much; they must proceed cautiously against the common enemy agnosticism that parades in various guises, but that always spells indifference to moral principles. They must guard against fads of their own; they must not per- l mit themselves to condemn in a gen eral, theoretical way, when they can do good in a particular, prctical way. i The great world church movement fell to pieces because of its unhealthy financial background. There is no reason for the sort of schism that ruined these plans among the En deavorers. Their cause is not new, it is not over pretentious. If they will make their appeal to thosu who have perceived the peril that lurks all around us, they will find recruits in the most unexpected quarters.

The entire community was cast into sorrow when the news was re ceived that Mrs. Bettie Kirk was dead. She had been in bad health, most all the year but it was not thought to be serious until about ten days before her death, when she was advised by physicians that aa operation was necessary, which was performed, but that could not stay the hand of death and her dear life returned to the God who gave it. Bettie Belcher Kirk was born July 24, 1887, died July 26, 1921, aged 34 years and two days; was mar ried to Charley Kirk Feb. 12, 1908. She professed faith in Christ and joined the Christian Church 13 years ago. She leaves a husband, one lit tle girl five years of age, a mother and two sisters. She was loved by every, one that knew her, had lived a true christian life, and her last words were that she was ready and willing to go. She said death was so sweet and only like a dream. Her last request was for the song, Death Is Only a Dream" to- be sung at her funeral. The only comfort the writer' cai give the sorrowing family is to grieve no: ae those who have no hope, for we know she 1b asleep in asleep ln Jeesus. We can't understand why she was taken away from her hus band end dear little girl, but Ood knows best, and we have to submit to his will. I can only say jto the loved ones to try to live as she has lived, always with a kind word and sweet smile for every one, and be prepared to meet her in the other world where there will be no part ings and sad goodbyes. Funeral services, were conducted by Revs. B. A. Walker and her re mains were laid to rest ln Sanders Chapel cemetery beneath a bank of beautiful flowers to await the resur rection of the dead.
