Socialism Makes Slow Head
way in Nebraska.
Socialism is not making any
very great headway among west
ern farmers, and until the social
istic hook is baited with some
things which are not yet con
tained in the socialistic plat
form, that party cannot expect
farmers to flock to it in any
numbers, says Thomas H. Tib
bies of Bancroft, Nebraska. For
25 years Mr, Tibbies has been
the leading figure among west
ern farmers and the warning he
has just issued to them against
socialism will be heeded as pro
bably from no other source. He
"While the socialists have
recently made large gains in the
cities and great centers of popu
lation in the west, they have,
hardly attracted any attention
among the farmers. In fact,
the vague and court way in
which, in their platform, they
have handled the agricultural
question has aroused suspicions
in some quarters that for the
present at least they do not wish
to invite the farming population
to a too close scrutiny
of their
"They have set forth clearly
enough their plans for govern
mental absorption of all the rail
roads, all the telegraphs all the
telephones, all the mining indus
tries; in a word, of all produc
tive industries of the country,
with the single exception of the
one that is most important of
all agriculture.
"On this question their writ
ers, their speakers and their
party platforms have been vague
and unsatisfactory. In fact, in
their national convention held
at Indianapolis the platform
there adopted only devoted to
this most vital matter the follow
ing brief paragraph:
"The collective ownership of
land, wherever practicable, and
in cases where such ownership
is impracticable, the appropria
tion by taxation of the annual
rental value of all land held for
speculation or exploitation."
"This omission is beginning
to attract the serious attention
of the more thoughtful members
of the farming population. It
has been made the subject of a
number of articles in various
publications throughout the
country, notable one by Mr.
Charles Johnston in September
issue of North American Review.
Basing his statements upon facts
and figures presented in the last
United States census, Mr. John
ston points out in a very im
pressive way how enormously
important is this farming indus
try which the socialists seem
ingly adore.
"He shows that there are over
5,000.000 farms in the United
States owned entirely or in part
by their occupiers; that thi3
enormous class of farmer pro
prietors, the largest single-class
in the nation, foams the back
bone of this country and for
that matter, the backbone of the
voting population of the country.
Assuming that each farmer's
family averages six persons, the
farmer-landowning class num
bers over ill), 000, 000 people, or
obout one third of the entire
population of the United States.
In 1900. the capital value of the
farms owned by these farmer
proprietors was $20, 439,901. 16-1.
The capital value of these farm
ers is stated by the census for
1910 as nearly $11,000,000,000;
an increase of over $20,000,000,
000 in ten years. The value of
American farms has doubled in
10 years, and this enormous in
crease is not due chiefly to the
efforts of the farmers; it doo3
not represent the result of better
tillaj wholly or even largely.
It is due to the general develop
ment of the country, to the in
crease in general wealth, and to
the greater demand for land,
which is a measure of the in
crease in .general wealth. In
other words, this enormous in
crease of $20,000,000,000 in the
last 10 years, averaging over
$3,000 for each farm, is what
the socialists describe as "un
earned increment." This un
earned increment, the socialists
say is a "socially created" value,
and so should belong to the so
ciety which created it
"It is at this point in the so
cialist program that the farmer
begins to see where he comes in.
The socialist platform, in its
vague way, demands ' 'the col
lective gwnership of land where-
fever practicable." So far as
thi3 means anything it means
that the government is to take
over and cultivate the land
"wherever practicable", just as
it is to take over and operate
all other gret industries of the
country. It would seem from
their platform, from this pro
j position, that the theorists of
socialism recognize that in some
cases at least it mav not be
"practicable" to take the farm
er's land away from him. To
To meet these case3 the socialist
platform calls for "the appro
priation by taxation of the an
nual rental value of all lands
held for speculation or exploita
tion." "If a farmer farms his land
he exploits it If it increases in
value while it is in his posses
sion, he is open to the charge of
having held it for speculation.
In other words if the farmer
works his farm, or it increases
in value while he owns it, he
comes under the provisions of
the socialist platform where he
shall be taken to what would be
the "annual rental value" of all
the land he possesses.
"According to the socialistic
theory all thisenormou3 increase
of over $20,000,000,000 is the
value of farming lands within
10 years is unearned increment.
It is a "socially created" value
and should belong to the society
which created it
"Therefore, in effect, says the
socialistic platform, we will
either take away this land bodily
from it3 present owners and turn
it over to the government, or we
will tax it to its full rental value
and apply the revenue to making
up any deficits which may arise
from our socialistic merchandis
ing, manufacturing, mining.
railroadingand other industrial
"This is the point which farmi
ers all through the west are dis3ff
cussing with more and more
interest and with the result that
unless the socialist party can
produce some more attractive
proposition regarding the agri
cultural industry than they have
heretofore set iorth in any of
their platforms, they can count
upon having the farmers of the
country massed in solid array
against them.
