If Bourne is gifted with t-eunnd-sight, then Bryan is the next president, for Tnft will cer tainly be the Republican nominee. Thai is now conceded by the friends of the opposing candidate.

And Wattersnr- is about as far from bdinj; a Bryan man as is j Parker, Bjlmont or the New York World. Speaking of i mphecies, or guesses, for that is all they are, the N"ws Record ventures one.

When the "Interests" allowel the rate bill to pass the U. S. senate, they knew t wouldn't hurt them. As Harriman said in his Kansas City speech, when the Government really regulated the rates on his railroads he was willing the Government should own them. Miscellaneous.

Editor News Record: f eee in tin News Record reference is made to tiio special road tax levy In district No. 18, and I have been urged to make a few oomments. Your article reads "the oounty belug out of debt it is in excel lent shape to stand up for its rights against the big corporations,'' which is very commendable as far as It goes, but does the editor of the News Record kuow that three-fourths of the legal voters of district 18 are wondering if they have any rights, and that they are welooming the contest and hnve urged the lumber companies to take up the matter and aro w ith thi companies in regard to it. i lie nrst know ledge that juich a tax had been -nted and passed came as news through the News Record to three fourths nf the voters in the district, and the proceedings ought to be of Interest to ev. ryoue in the conntv as it involves the legality of one-fourth of the voter voting a tsx and the other three-fourths knowing nothing of it. Thanking the News Record for giving us the first information that such a tax had Wen voted, and trusting that it may always keep us posted in such mat tore, I nm, yours lo behalf of the slighted majority, Matt II. Stables. Kxtract from an address delivered by Hon. Tom L. Johnson, Mayor of Cleveland, before an audience com posed almost excb eively of farmers. After fpeaking on the issues in state and county for some half hour, the Mayor, as is his custom, called for questions. A venerable gentleman, wim long white whisk ere, arose and said: "Mr. Speak er, I have a suspicion, from wnat li have rend in the papers, that! Mayoi .li'linsoii desires to place aili . - I T . . 1 . .1-1 laxeson ianii. is mis c.'iitc r it Someone else in the auiiieme ihtnij. called out: "Tell us a!out tin- I Single Tax." Replviug to thel eltb rly man, the Mayor iai.i: ' Mopt emphatically, iNo!" He paused for a moment, then con tiiiuing said: "But if you mean that I have a desire to place ail taxes on land values, I answer most decidedly, yesl If you want to hear about the Single Tax, I will stay with you and let my tent meeting in the city wait, while I say that if it were not for this idea, called Single lax. I would not be here toniht. This is the reason that I a;n what I am, ami making the fight which we are now in. A tax on land would be an uniusl and iniiiuiious system, but a tax on la nl values would be the best and fail est pV"1 that the world, has ever known. Laws which would bring about the taxation of land values would he of more ser vice to humanity than any legisla ti m ever yet enacted. Farmers are large owners of land, but not ot land values. We have land in out city tiiat spIIs at the rate of five million dollars per acre; have any of you farmers land as v. lua- hle as that? In New ork City there is land that sells for fiueen million dollars per ncre; is there any land in this neighborhood at that priee? To answer my fiinnl's question, I will relate a litiie talk I had one day with Congres-man Pierson,, of Tuscarawas county, whtn wewere in Washingum to gether. Pierson waK a farmer and he said to me one day: 'Tom, I cannot go your single Tax, as it wouid be a hardship on the farm ers, and they" already have more than their share of the btrden of taxation.' I said: 'Look here, Pierson, if I thought the Single Tax would increase the farmer's burden I wuld not Btand for it one minute.' In fact, if I did not know it would be the greatest blessing to the farmers and to the workingmeo in the city 8 well, I never woi 1 1 advocate it again. I can show you that the .Single Tax will lighten the farmer's burden as compared with the present method. Let me ask you some questions, to see if we can get at the facts of the matter. How much, Mr Pier son. of the present tax burden do you think the farmers bear?' Well,' he answered, the farmers constitute over lia'f the population of the United States, and I should say that they pay at least GO e cent of all taxes.' 'Very well, le 8 call it 50 per cent to be sate ' 'N.', no,' aid Piersoii, tnat s too lov. They pay more than (JO per cen, rather than less-' 'All rigm, but to be eafe, let's call it 50 per cent Now, Mr Pierson, I want you- to tell me how much of tl.e value ot land the farmers have in, the United States? Please take into consideration all the valuable coal lands, he iron, silver, ild, copper and other valuable mines the water power privileges, the rail roads and their rights of way and terminals, including street rail roads, telephones and telegraphs, for these are built on the most val uable land; all the gas ar d ele trie I'ghtiug rights of way, built on land of great value; all the city lots, Home of which are worth more than a whole county of farming land. I want you to take all these into consideration, and then tell me hw much' of these values in the United States the farmers have Our Complete Line Of Gents' Furnishing Goods Is now in.

More Stock On Reserve. - WVehiiitston, March 24 Tl.e Forest Servicu has recommended that the number of cattle and horses ulloVed to grate, upon the Blue Mountains (W) National t.,i-st in Oregon, during the 1 season I'.i0.s, be increased from 10,000 to 17,900 head, and the number cf sheep from ISO.lHk) to 152,500 head. This for est has recently been divided into three administrative units, and the increase in the l umber ot head of stock to graze on the range this year was made to per mit au equitabla adjustment among the former users of the forest. Irrigated furms and splendid bit wheat lands for sale at bai gains by the O. R. & 1. Co. Mr. Pierson replied: 'Well, I should say, less than 5 per cent.' I said. 'call it 10 per cent to be safe.' 'Oh, no, no; thatV eniinly too high; that's doub'e.' 'Well we will call it 10 percent, anyway, j Now, don't you see that if the' farmer are paying 50 per cent.,! that if all lliH taxes were raised by a Single Tax ot hind v.tl'ies the) farmers, since they hHvo but 10 j tier cent of these values you . ay i n per cent would pay lew; that their lax would be red m ml li e times? That instead of payin. nne-lWf us now. they would, under that plan, pav but one-tenth?' " 'I deolaie, Tom, I never looked j at it in that light, and I guess you ; have got me. "So, I t-ay to you farmers here tonight, that this Single Tax,' of which I am proud to be an advo cate, would be to the over bur: dened farmers and workingmen the greatest boon, the greatest blessing, the greatest Oodend that any country ever knew.
