Then again, there is nothing like fair and free discussion to lead men out of error and into trnth, and trnth is not likely to suffer in such discnssion. We are far from regarding 'space as wasted that may be given, in reason able amount, to writers who differ from our Populist declaration of principles. There is just one other thought to which we would allude in this con nection. There are, unfortunately, a few people who are so narrow minded that if they find a little space in a paper occupied by something contrary to their views, or something that is not particularly interesting to them, they kick, or stop their paper. Such people forget that a paper can not be made for one man alone or one class of men. What may be dis tasteful to one man may possess special interest to another; and in the great variety of matter that gets into any good paper daring the year certainly every subscriber ought to find enough...

G JIN. 23 TE1S SINGLE TAX. NO. VII. Friend Wakefield: la your letter now before me, you object to the method I suggested for the cure of land monopoly as not sufficiently ex plicit or definite ia detail. Your ob jection is, in my judgment, absolutely groundless. The method is perfectly explicit and, I apprehend, perfectly comprehensible. I will endeavor to make it clear to you. Government should, without da lay, proceed to reclaim every foot of tend now held out of use for specu lative purposes, and every foot of tesd held by landlords for rent, and open the same for occupancy to act ual settlers. How? First By declaring void all grants to corporations and individuals that have not been disposed of to small holders for personal ocoupancy and use. . Second By immediately and ab solutely dispossessing all individual proprietors of land held for specu lative purposes. In carrying out the latter purpose some discretion is undoubtedly neces sary. We have in this country a large claw of w...

It is not strange that those who fat ten upon legalized public plunder should wish to teach the rising gen eration to "respect authority and obey the law." Obedience to law is a good thing for them so long as they make the law that other people must obey; but it is not so clear why our Kansas teachers should be asking to have days specially set apart for the in struction of our children that indis criminate respect for authority and indiscriminate obedience to law is a patriotic daty. Suppose the revolu tionary fathers had been so taught, and h...

The local pa pers are giving the same old J nauseating stuff about the White House being too poor and email to house the chief execu tive of a great nation like ours. It ia not likely that the appropriation will be granted. It ia too monstrously absurd to take the publio money in this time of awful need, this time of homelessness and misery, to build an elegant palace for some swell nabob to live in while he draws $50,000 a year. Tom Reed said not long ago that of all the gratifying results of the last election the one which pleased him most was the defeat of Populism in Kansas, and especially the retirement of Jerry Simpson. Now, does not that show that Mr. Read knows right well the power and purpose of Populism? Mr. Reed knows very well that democracy ia no enemy of republicanism.

A few years ago I took a sort of census from the assessor's books of Multnomah county, Oregon, in which the city of Portland is located, and in a population of 80,000 there wera Boms 4,700 land owners, and they boast out there that Portland is a city of home-owners and that everyone can get land. If only 10 per cent, own land, then less than 1 per cent, of land-owners are benefited by the rise in the value of land that comes from land booms, for while city lots go up, farm lands not immediately adjacent to such cities, go down. Booms sweep our country periodically, and after each boom comes panio, riot, suffering and poverty that afflict our people worse than any plague could possibly eflTct them.

When any plan of eliminating a so cial wrong is objected to, it is presup posed that the objector either denies the existence of the wrong, or that he has in view another and preferable remedy. You do not deny the wrongs of land monopoly, nor of unequal and unjust taxation, but prefer communism to the single-tax as a remedy, and now we have something sufficiently definite to found a logical argument upon. Possibly you may object to the word 'communism," as properly describing your social system, though that is to my mind the only logical inference of your partially defined position on the various questions at issue. Are you quite consistent in saying that use of land is a natural right that land should be free as air and yst discriminating between the large and the small speculators and land lords, saying the lands held by the former should be reclaimed for use of actua...

5 THAT WICKED AND FOOLISH SURRENDER The National Watchman of Jann ary 25, says that since the St. Louis conference, the entire program of the republican party ha3 been changed; that prior to that time the party leaders were holding fre quent meeting to considers the best plan to meet a campaign upon the iBsne of financial reform, but now they have nothing to fear upon this question and are getting rea y to conduct another campaign upon the old tariff humbug. All this has re sulted from "the wicked and foolish surrender to the Chicago socialists by the St. Louis meeting." Njw will the Watchman be kind enough to state explicitly jast what the St. Louis meeting surrendered to the Chicago socialists? The address which the executive committee was compelled to sdopt, re-affirmed alle giance to the Omaha platform, and the reform press throughout the country so far as wo have seen, with the single exception of the Watch man, has commended that address. Further; as a matter of fact, outside ...
