? Dataller ^Bup. ? Mr. Wobkeb: I notice that another element is being introduced into the struggle that is to come— a man named South is sooling the yellow pup on to the Labour ranks. Now, sir, I am as staunch and straight a rrocestant as a wuuie iw ment of Souths, and it isn't doing me one bit of good. Why it was only the other day I asked a capitalist, who claimed descent from a member of Cromwell s Iron sides, for a job and he told me that as he could get a Pagan Chinee to work for ten shillings a week he could etart me at nine. Why didn't the 'pup' bark then? Per haps the 'pup,' like Demetrius, onlv gives voice when ' tbe craft is in danger.

The Socialism of Single Tax. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 20 August 1892

The Socialism of Single Tax. The following is the concluding portion of a prize essay on the Single Tax by Harry S. Taylor, editor of the S. A. Pioneer : _. In arriving at the conviction that the introduction of the Single Tax will in evitably pave the way to Socialism, it will probably seem to many of the Single Tax party that my conclusions run radically counter to tfoose of Henry George's. That positions is true, but the variance is not great, and will be found to centre mainly in the interest question. No doubt Mr. ^Seorge has of late re paatprily ripfila,rftn''~hiR opposition t-r» tihp Socialistic spirit, but nevertheless his. earlier writings are distinctly Socialistic in character, and he has repeatedly affirmed that the nationalisation of rent would lead to a sort of Socialism, if not by methods nrriinarilv nnnRirifireH Siir-in.listiin in fihpir nature!'
