GIVE SOME ACTUAL EXAMPLES Go Back Ovr the Illstorr of Cnses Where One rropertr Owner Profiled nt the Uzpense at Mnny Others. "If you stimulate the speculative value of land, you force a lot of It out of use," says U J. Quinby. "In Henry deorgo's doctrine of the sin gle tax we have u means, without shock, without revolution, of effecting a great economic change that will bring economic Justice," says W. F. Baxter. "If you want to stimulate Industry, stop putting a penalty on Industry as you do when you levy a tax pn It," says Frank O. OdolL The abovo are a few of the pithy re marks made by L. J. Quinby, W. F. Bax ter and O. Frank Odell In addressing the eltal Kstate exchange Wednesday noon. These three men were Invited by the ex change to expound the single tax doctrine to the real estate men. Quinby held that the application of the single tax, or the exemption of all Indus try and Improvement from taxation, and the' placing of all taxes on ground values, would hurt no one but the land specula tor, who holds land out of use until the community has grown about his land In such a way that the. Increasing popula tlon Is forced to pay him a large price for his ground before It can be put to use. Glvea an Example. He gave the example of the man who, seeking to rent a home, found rents twice as high In one town as in the other.. The man called the attention of the owner to this fact. "Ves," replied the owner of the house and lot, but In that town over there you have no paving, you have no fire department, you have no police department, you have no sewer system." The man took the house and paid the higher rent In order to get all these ad vantages. Then came the assssor and demanded entrance to the house to levy tax on the household goods. The man refused to admit htm. "Vou are a queer man." sold the assessor. "Don't you know that we have to tax your household goods and all your property to maintain a police department, a sewer system, a fire department, and to maintain the paved streets?" "Have I not already paid Mr. Jones, the landlord, for all these things?" re plied the irate renter. Tax Is Never 1'altl. V. F. Baxter called the attention of the exchange to the fact that a tax on merchandise, for example, Is never paid by the merchant, but by the man who buys the goods, or the consumer, He argued that a tax on land values Is the iJ $11 handsomo, Choice.

He gave Houston, Tex., as an exomplo of a town that . has been tending toward tho single tax system under a 'tax com' mlsBloncr It has had for the last few years. He sold that Houston -was mak ing good use of the advantage accruing from such a system fin that It was ad vertising with the slogan, "Bring your wealth and energy to Houston, It is unassessable." Frank G. Odell gave nn Illustration' of a piece of vacant ground In the heart of Portland, Ore. The ground, he sold, hod been bought by the present owner some years ago for I3.O0P. Tho owner had Just refused JJ.2S0.00O for the grouhd, the offer coming from a concern that wante'd to build a $5,000,000 skyscraper on It. At tho moment he refused that offer 40 per cent of the men In Portland were said to be out of work. "By refusing- that offer," said Odell, "that man was not only holding It for still greater profits, but ho was preventing the expenditure of an additional (3,000,000 In the city, which would have given employment to a vast army of the Idle men of the city." Davis Carries Old Checks Around With Him as Evidence J. A. Davis, head of a labor agency in the city, Is carrying In his pocket the cancelled checks, showing that since 1901 ho has paid the city of Omaha something like 1300 In licence fees for the privilege of doing a labor agency business In the city. This he does to prove false the statements of the license Inspector, Berkowltz, who recently charged that Tavls had given the office a lot of trouble and had not paid his full llconse fees during four of the last six years. "I have been in the labor agency busi ness since away back In 1S3S," said Davis, "and In all that time only once did I get by with a six months' license. I have the cancelled checks to show exactly what I paid the city for this purpose, and anybody can see them. There are at least eight labor agencies, though, in the city, that are getting by without paying their license fees. I should like to know how they are doing It. Also, I should ;iko to know what the Inspector Is doing when he lets them get by. Also I should like to know why he Is making such charges against me, when I havo all the cancelled checks In my pockets to show as receipts for what I have paid."

ToPoel and City Attorney John A. nine, with thv law spread out before them In Judge Baker's office, held a prolonged confer once yesterday relative to tho opinion the city legal department will render inter preting the liquor license law as It ap plied to wholesalers and retailers. Police Commissioner J. J. Ryder has Intimated that he will not permit "barrel houses" and wholesalers to sell over a counter without a retailer's license. To this' Mayor Dahlman has Indicated that he Is strenuously opposed, because the practice," presumably contrary to or an evasion of the law, has been permitted in the past. The question the city legal department will be asked to answer is whether or not a "barrel house" may under the law sell liquor over a counter at retail even with a retailer's license. There Is a statute which has been Interpreted to mean that anybody Interested In any wholeealo liquor business cannot legally be engaged or Interested In a retail liquor business. The matter of determining whether or not such an Interest exists Is left largely with the city commission. This latter law has been evaded by the owners of a wholesale or "barrel houses" taking out license to sell at retail In another man's name It Is understood that where the Identity of the two licenses can be established the council will strictly enforce the restrictive law and refuse to grant the retail license. MRS. EDITH PEW SECURES DIVORCE IN DISTRICT COURT Judge English granted a divorce to Mrs. Edith Pew, wife of Arthur Pew, who applied for a separation from her hus band on grounds of non-support and mis conduct.
