Oi'R esteemed cotemporary, the
Pallas Observer, guve us some kind
ly advice last week, which we duly
appreciate; but .we remember last
wiuter he gave an unknown writer
from Monmouth great latitude to
speak anything but kindly of us.
AVehope hereaftvr, that the good
brother will take a dose of his own
medicine and see how it tastes.
Advice is quite a cheap article, and
is usually given without adequate
data. . ' ' " .
Lo.vgfkixow'h home in Cam
bridge, with its lilac hedge, itaejius,
and itssuperb view across the mead
ows to the Charles, is tenanted now
by the poet's daughter, Miss Alice
Longfellow, who sometimes extends
the hospitality of its roomy parlors
and handsome grounds to the la
dies of the Harvard Annex. The
house was built by a colonial tory,
and although it is nearly a century
and a half old, there are few hand
somer residences in New England
to-day. Harper1 Wetkly.

would not bo surprised if tho Dem
ocrats would elect their entire state
ticket in Nebraska. There are 70,
000 German voters in the state, a
large majority of whom liaye here
tofore acted with the Republicans,
They are tired of MclCinleyism and
the general liberal tendencies of
the party, and are fust breaking
away from it. The democrats
have nominated two German-Americans
for important state offices, S.
N. Wolbach for lieutenant gover
nor and Matthew Oering for attorney-general.
The Republicans, as
in Illinois, have ignored the Oer-nian-Americans
When the Presbyterian ministers
came through The Dalles on their
way to Portland, they stopped off
for breakfast." The Tima-Mount-aineermys
wascreatcd by a k ind-hearted Chris
tian lady, who went about distribut
ing tracts among the passengers, not
knowing they were all preachers of
the gospel. A doctor of divinity
received one on "The Evil of
Gambling," and a white haired
pillar of the church was given one
on "The Sin of Dancing." Some
of the ladies were the recipients of
treatises on "The Evils of Tobacco
Smoking and Chewing," "Dram-
drinking in Saloons," etc. No one
doubted the good intention of the
donor; but tho subjects for mission
ary work were not well chosen.
Roiieiit JoiiNHO,v,of the Corvallis
Timet, our esteemed friend and
brother, says in this week's issue
of his paper that"lie ;han too much
respect for Bro. 15cll to reproduce.
hisarticle in this community, for
there is neither an insinuation nor
a sentence of truth in it." Now
Robert, wo thank you for kindly
rcsncct,and say. That is just what
you should have done, either printed
all we said, and. let the people
judge of its truthfulness, or' you
should have said nothing about it.
We are more than willing that the
people of Corvallis should sco our
article entire. We simply Baid that
Judge Fullcrton had decided the
O. P. case as had Judge Pipes,
that is, . so far as granting more
time was concerned. That is the
only point in thedicussion by either
judge. We said then, and we say
now, that if Pipes was owned by
tlie.O. P., so is Fullerton.
A! VU:AI AS MV1K
The Dallas 2ViiMcWjif has a way
of getting its ideas mixed that is
truly appalling. Iu commenting
uH)u a ltoent declaration of the
kst SuK iu favor of absoluU
free trade, it 'says:
This necessarily imggeats the
abolishment of- revenue collector
at every port of eutry aud th levy
tug of a, direct tax Umu tho na
tion's population auuiiully to rafse
the lHHi,000 or ko iieeemiry to
carry on the government. Add
to this the slipshod system ' of rais
ing state and county revenue, with
u injustices, evasions, and partial
Ities, then cap the chumx by
adopting the Wkw Sidk'h pot hob-
, by, the single tax kmim,
--v--J which would tx the farmer lauds
while it exempts the millionaire's
railroad ears, steamboat;, telegraph
lines, etc., and if you would n't sec
a nioiikey and u parrot time iu this
eonntry for a few years it would
be because the people had gone so
witless they couldn't tell whether
they were American citizens or
Australian kangaroos." ,
v Here is a paper that says our
scheme would necessitate the adop
tion of throe distinct modes of tax
ation, namely, a direct tax on the
people, the present system of coun
ty and municipal taxation, and the
singl tax. , Now it is evldeut that
the leoNied editor of the J'tiH.wr
has forgot teu the detlnition of the
word 'single," Welter says:
"Single, . 1. One only, us dls
Unguishwl from more than one
consisting of one alone; individual
separate," Of course we took it
for granted, w lieu we spoke of the
single tax, that even the editor of
the Trttnrit would know what
we meant. We sec, however, that
ltut is the man sincere when he
objects to raising public revenue
provenionts; and everything he buy i
is taxed also; and ho sells his proj
dueo iu a market free to the "pau
per" labor of all the world. Can
the TiiiHwript find one farmer who
would not be willing to have his
taxes levied upou the value of the
bare laud, provided all his Im
provements and ixnwoual property
were exempt! Of course It can't,
for the taxes of every farmer would
be decreased. "Who, then, would
pay the taxes!" we think we hear
the 2Y!Nei fytt ask. The people who
hold land for speculative purposes,
of course, Tliere ar huudreds of
acres near Independence and Dal
las that arewhotly unproductive and
aud unimproved, and wliith iy
eonniaratively no taxes, betwiuse
they are asmwswl as "furnm," d
which are lnlng held for the increas
ed value that the pressure of pop
ulation is constantly giving them,
A hundred acres of such land is
worth iu the market as much as a
thousand acre of ordinary farm
land) improvements and all; but it
don't pay a teuth part of the taxes.
The single tax will tax it to its full
value. Does this look like exempt
ing the rich aud huing the poor!
Tun Wkht StpK till January 1,
by a direct tax! Is ho wilting to
stand up aud lie counted as one
who favors a tax that costs the
poor man as much as tho million
aire, aud also gives every dealer a
profit ou the tax!
And note that he sas "the
slijishod system of raising state and
county revenue, with it Injustices,
evasions, aud purtiulitie." What
can the 'man meant In one breath
he seems to be opposed to chauging
the preseut system, and 1n tho next
he bitterly denounces it. We con
fess that we are unequal to the
task of unraveling the mystery.
ltut what astonishes us most is
what he says regarding tho single
tax. It is plaiu to be teen that he
believe tbe "millionaire's railroad
cars, telegraph lint, steamboats,
etc.," are bostiloto the public
good. The West Side do not
think so. lie also, appears to lie
laboring under the impression that
telegraph lines can lie hung from
tie clouds, railway cars use the
rainbows instead of tracks laid on
the ground, and steuiubonts ply
the air. Tho Wrst Siok does not
think so. If what tbe Trnutmpt
says about exemptini; millionaires
were true, you would see the thir
ty-odd thousand millionaires of the
Uuited States straining every nerve
and using every effort to have the
single tax adopted, liut, strangely
enough, like the Tiqiwrtj)!, they
And what would lie the effect ol
tho single tax on corporations! It
would tax their rights of way at
their actual value; it would anuu
ally -place in tho public treasury
the full rental value of all the laud
they use, including the millions of
value of real estate in places like
Portland, which are taxed now only
nominally. Their taxes , on real
estate would be greatly increased,
whilo the taxes ou their personal
property would lie abolished. Why
would we take the tax off from
their personal property! Because
that kind of property is a benefit to
everyone. Men are given tanor in
making tho rails, cars, engines,
buildings, laying the trucks,' grad
ing, etc. Other men are employed
in depots, fieighthouscs, round
houses; iu running trains and inak
intr repairs in a thousand differ
cut ways, jscsnios, it mere were
no railroads, think how inconven
ient it would bo to the people who
have no interest in thein except to
travel over them or ship merchan
disc over them. So the more per
sonal property in existence, the
better for everyone; and if this is
true, as even the Trammpt must
admit, it is only the part of public
policy that personal property lie
exempted from taxation. For it is
an axiom of political economy that
a tax levied on a product of labor
increases the cost of the product,
and that as cost increases, con
sumption decreases. But while
taxes on industry inevitably in
crease tho cost of production, and
hence tend tq decrease tho output
and reduce tho number of laborers
employed, a tax on land as inevit
ably decreases its celling value,
and hence, by giving agreator
number of people access to those
natural opportunities from which
alono all must live, tends to stimu
late production aud employ more
labor. Now these are self-evident
propositions, aud must be applied
as well to lands and personal prop
erty of every description as to rail
roads. Tax the farmer's land in
deed 1 Surely tho Transcript is not
i. 1 1 1
so silly as to suppose uis ianu
eicapes now. At present not only
is the farmer's land taxed, but
everything ho has, including ira-,
