VICTIMS OF THE MINE 'A hundred men dead in a coal mine. Three or four hundred women and children moaning and wringing their hands at the entrance to the mine. Scores of workmen down in the earth, risking their lives to recover the bodies of the hundred. Investigation o causes of the explosion. Publication of some very fine theories about cause and effect of black damp. Coroner's inquests. Denunciation pf corporation greed. f And next day public attention goes to a backwoods murder case, or the hightoned elopement of Mr. Tohn Doe with Mrs. Richard Roe, or a prize-fight in which is involved the hope of the. white race. Those dead men earned barely a living. Their families -were poorly housed, poorly fed, poorly clothed, and the source of that poor living lies maimed and blackened, dead and useless, in the darkness of the mineWhat becomes of the three or four hundred widows and orphans? They are the real tragedy of the mine horror. The paths of vice are open to the girls and boys, and ...

wmmmmm&amp;wm THE SINGLE TAX WHAT IS IT? Article No. 7. By Edmund Norton. There are two principles or rules in regard to taxation, one or the other of which most people accept in theirjudgments of such matters. The first says: "People should. pay toward the support ' of gov-j ernment according to the amount, of wealth they have rthe poor paying less, the rich most." " The second says: "People should pay toward the support of government according: to the amount of benefits they receive from government if the benefits are small they should pay little;' if the benefits are large, they should pay much." Which is right? Whatever- your answer, both rules are viciously and villianously violated by nearly every form of tax in existence except the Land Value Tax where applied. The Poll Tax takes from the 'rich and poor alike without re,gard to benefits or wealth "breaking both rules. A Road Tar, which is a form of Poll Tax, takes from rich and poor alike. Then it puts -both amounts o...

that are entirely created by the Community in its-collective capacity and in which, the individual, as an individual has no right of ownership. The right of Society to this value is born of the Right of the Creator to its own creations; just as the individual right to himself entitles him to the ownership of .his own creations of private property. Therefore, to leave to each its own creations squares with the Moral Law and satisfies Justice. Incidentally, the evils that are born of Social Injustice will disappear vhen Social Justice is satisfied and society has no business in attempting to remove any other kind of evil that belongs to the individualwith all its penalties and rewards. Attempts of society to remove individual "Motes" while suffering from its own "beams" is the essence of arrogance, ignorance and presumption. Now, in the second place, the Taxation of Land Value is known by all authority on that subject to be unshiftable. It stays where i,t is put. It is on a subject th...

VJ ,THE DAILY SHORT STORY Shearing the Wolf. Philipson, real estate dealer in Johannesburg, led his partner, Oberheim, into a saloon and set him down before a quart bottle of champagne. ' i "Liquor up, old'man," he said. I've sold a three-month option for 5,000 to buy our piece of mining ground at 130,000:" Oberheim's face turned pale; he clasped his partner frantically by the arm. "You've sold a "three-month option to buy our land for '30,000?" he gasped. "Are you mad, Philipson? Didn't you refuse to sell it to the Twisted Snake Co. for less .than 150,000, and haven't they been negotiating with us to get it zi 125,000? And you sell it at 30',000?" "Now,- Oberheim, listen to reason and don't act crazy," said Philopson. "This rich. Englishman comes along, says he represents some company or other, and wants to buy a mine on -its 'behalf. I told him I had a fine property adjoining the Twisted Snake mine, right onjthe gold reef, which I'd letninThave an option on, providing, he agreed n...

Shafts had been sunk and gold was being removed by the hundredweight, as was evinced by the great heaps of tailings white refuse left over after the cyanide,process had extracted the metaj. "Glad to see you, gentlemen,' said the Englishman. "I'll mail your check for 30,000 this afternoon." Philipson looked at his aghast. "You you're going to buy?" he stammered. , "Well, I should say I am," said the Englishman. "Best mine on the Rand, gentlemen." "But but" stammered Philipson, "your reef is the property of the Twisted Snake. We found it was a continuation of their own vein. You can't use a" particle of that gold." "So I learned. But the Twisted Snake has taken over the mine." "You can't sell to them!" shouted Philipson. "The clause in the contract says" "That I should not sell to the Twisted Snake, but should develop the land on behalf of my own company. But I have not sold to them. My company was the Twiste...

mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmw&amp;zm TAFT SUBMITS TARIFF BOARD REPORT ON WOOll SCHEDULE WITH NO RATE RECOMMENDATIONS Report Shows Tariff Should Be Reduced, But Leaves It To Con gress To Say How, and Taft Points Out Danger To3usiness oj Radical Revision. Washington, Dec. 20. The report of the tariff board on the wool schedule of the Payne-Ald-rich tariff was laid before congress with a special message fromJPresident Taft this afternoon. It shows that that scfiedule is contrary to every economic principle and ought to be lowered right away. It shows that the traiff exr eludes all foreign competition in just those lines of clothing in which competition is most needed for the great mass of-consumers the cheaper lines. " It shows that the tariff also excludes all foreign competition even in the higher grades of clothing whenever prices in this country are high. ' It shows that the cost. of production of clothing in this country is twice that in England or France, and that the main reason it ...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Yet the percentage of the manufacturer's profit is not nearly so great as is the retailer's. By the ad valorem system of juggling with the tariff, when prices here are high and the consumer paying through the nose, rthe tariff -automatically becomes correspondingly high, and the .'producer, immune from foreign competition, charges what -he pleases. " When prices are low, then the ad valorem duty also becomes low, and the producer has to- face foreign competition. (A little reflection on these last two paragraphs shows clearly why American manufacturers and retailers take such great pains to see that prices in this country never, are low.) The tariff on cheap goods is often much in excess of the total value of raw material. This last is" worked by figuring. on a cost ofproduetjon in this country, thus, themported go.ods are taxed not on their actual cost of production, but on what they might have cost had they been made in this country. And the- cost of production ...
