OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE EVERETT TRADES COUNCIL VOL. XXVI. PROPOSED ASSAULT UPON THE VICIOUS SYSTEM OF PRIVILEGE (By Dante Barton) NEW YORK CITY, July 16, — Legislation is to be presented to Congress soon to levy a federal land tax of one per cent on the assess ed value of all improved land and of two per cent upon the value of all unimproved land. The proceeds are to be used for the war in place of further taxes upon industry and workers. Along with the land value tax, laws are proposed for the immediate acquisition by the Federal govern ment of all natural resources (such as coal and oil lands, iron ores, timber, water power sites, etc.) to be owned and operated by the pub lic for the public at least for the duration of the war. The principle of compensation to the private own ers is to be a return on the actual, honest investment and nothing for the fictitious "values" of "good will," etc. This legislation is part of the constructive program to abolish priv ilege in America and to s...

OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE EVERETT TRADES COUNCIL VOL. XXVI. WOULD UNITE ALL SOCIALISTIC ELEMENTS IN ONE GREAT PARTY NEW YORK, July 23.—1n an in terview 'published in the New York Times, John Spargo, the American Socialist writer and lecturer, out lines a plan by which liberal and radical forces could get together in the United States on a programme for real democracy here at. home. Believing that a programme is more important than a new organ ization in a field where so many already exist, the People's New Ser vice presents Mr. Spargo's pro gramme as worthy of serious consid eration. Said Mr. Spargo: "Of course, what I had in mind was the development of a new party, essentially and fundamentally So cialist, but cast upon very different lines from the Socialist Party. One of my freinds described what I have in mind in a very apt phrase the other day. He said, 'We need a party on broad lines that will gather up the idealism of the country and make it efficient.' It is quite evident, I thi...

Friday, July 27. 1917 STRIKE SITUATION AS IT LOOKS IN WASHINGTON TOWNS AND CAMPS Seldom if ever have thousands of working men been on a strike which has been conducted in such an orderly manner as this one. There have been no riots or other disorderly conduct worth mention ing in a manner to cause undue ex citement. The strikers are convinced of the justice of their cause and have the sympathy of a great majority of their fellow citizens. The employers who hold out against the demands of the unions appear to be determined not to surrender. A few days more will probably show a decided change in favor of the strikers. The Federal authorities may in tervene on account of interference with ship and other building opera tions now in progress. There can be no question of the justice of the demands of the strik ers in the Shingle Weavers' Union or the unorganized street car men, or the newly organized Timberwork ers. Both white and oriental employees of the British Columbia mills have stru...

OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE EVERETT TRADES COUNCIL VOL. XXVI. STRONG PLEA FOR GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP OF ALL RAILROADS NEW YORK, July 28. — Public ownership advocates throughout the country are being organized for a concerted drive in support of a bill for government operation of the railroads, drafted by Frederick C. Howe, Commissioner of Immi gration for the Port of New York, about to be introduced in Con gress. The bill creates the United States Railway Corporation, with a board of eleven directors, of whom six would be appointed by the President and five designated by the railroads of the country.

OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE EVERETT TRADES COUNCIL VOL. XXVI. ANOTHER ARRAIGNMENT OF THE SPECULATORS IN FOOD SUPPLIES By John R. Newberry, Owner of One of the Most Successful Chains of Retail Grocery Stores in the United States, in the National Labor Journal, of Pittaburgh, Pa. Government control of the food supply of the nation must come. Only with government control can the enormous profits of speculators be eliminated. Only with such con trol can the producers, transporta tion companies, jobbers and retailers be assured of a fair return and noth ing more. The people of the United States pay 81 cents for the distribution of every dollar's worth of goods. The Japanese do it for 17 cents. Packing houses and the producers of beet sugßr are reaping untold millions today. The packing houses are quoting ham and bacon on the theory that hogs cost them about 17 cents a pound, live weight. The truth is that the packing houses bought most of the meat that they are now sell ing at exhorbitant pric...
