Defeat of Single Tax Is De

People of Oregon.
PRAISE GIVEN' FOR RESULT
Manager or Equal Taxation League
Tells of Help Given Him and
Says He Hopes Mr. VKen Is
Candidate lor Governor.
BT CHARLES H. SHIELDS. .
Manager Oregon Equal Taxation League.
The defeat of single tax is a gTeat
Victory. It means more for the people
of Oregon than will perhaps will ever
be realized. Confidence is-now re-established,
and Oregon with her srreat
natural resources but partially devel
oped, should forg-e ahead rapidly.
The victory meant nearly as much
for my own state. Washington. The
defeat of the single tax in Oregon will
be a great factor in keeping the .agi
tation out of the State of Washington.
This was one of the reasons, in fact
was the deciding feature in my coming
to Oregon to fight the single tax. l!
felt that if single tax should be es
tablshed in Oregon, it would be much
harder for me to defeat it in my own
I shall return to Seattle soon, ana
again take an active part in my busi
ness. I shall be ready always, however,
to assist in defeating single tax In
any part of the United States.
I believe that private ownership in
land is one of the strong pillars of
our Government. Single tax means
nothing but a blow at private owner
ship of land. The people of Oregon
have so understood It. That accounts
for the decisive vote against it. It is
mv candid opinion that had there been
no organization to fight the Fels Com
mission in the state, single tax would
today have been fastened upon the
Edaratloa la SerfMarf.
The Oregon Equal Taxation League
was organized to conduct a campaign
of education. We have done nothing
else. Our campaign has been clean
and free from personalities. Our sole
purpose has been to place the facts
before the people, having had absolute
confidence, that when they-had the
