Under tha single tax tha 1210.000 of
Improvement of labor value on the Ore
gonlan'a two lots would not be taxed,
and no machinery or other personal

The tax would fall on tba unimproved

ills important to near in roina m
' relation between acrea and city lota, be
cause so many persona think of country
or farm laad when they bear that single
' . tax la a tax on tha unimproved value of
land..' No farm land Is worth f 1,011.000
an acre, no matter what tha Improve
ments ara; and no farm land In Oregon
has a community made or social value
of one tenth, or even one thousandth of
that amount The unimproved value of
the two Oregonlan lota, which ara less
than one quarter of an acre. Is equal to
the improved value of 250 acrea of oroh-
ard worth 11000 aa acre; and If the an
' Improved value of tbe earns orchard Is
SUO an acre, then It would take 2500
acres of auch orchard to have the unlm
proved or social value of the less than
one quarter of an acre occupied by the
Oregonlan building. With tha same tax
rata, 1500 acres of orchard land with an
. "unimproved" value of 1100 an acre
, would pay under the single tax exactly
tha aama tax aa the two Oregonlan lots,
Suppose there are two vacant lota
adjoining tha Oregonlan lota, and worth
, the aama amount 1260,000. Under the
general property tax, with a tax rate of
. 22 mills for 1910, tha Oregonlan paid
' 15500 tax on the anlmproved value of lta
lots and ttltO on Its. building, and In
addition it waa taxed on Its machinery
and other personal property. But the
tax on the two equally valuable vacant
t lot would have been 15500. or 610
lees than the Oregonlan paid on lota
, tha Owner of the vacant lots a premium
of 19100 a year not to Improve his lo j,
and we flue tha Oregonlan. 16180 a year
for making Improvements and beautify.
Inr;tbe vity. That is unjust to f labor.
to all Industry, .
i Mow Single Tax Would Work.
How would the taxes be under "the
Ingle tax f Leave out of account tha
' Increased tax on the public service cor
porations, I which would pay much more
under the single tta than they pay now,
and suppose there Is nothing to be taxed
except the unimproved value of the four
lots. J we need, say, as much revenue as
we had before, or 117,160, from four
lot ;wlth a total unimproved value of
1500,000. . flo the ' tax rate would be
raised from It mills to" 14.12 mills.
Then' the owner of tha two vacant lots
would pay 18880, or 1S080 more than
he jpnya under the general property, tax,
and the Oregonlan would pay 18680, or
13080. less than It pays under the gen
eral irtroperty tax; and both together
would Vpay. 117460. Tba community
would have the tame amount of reve
nue, .but the tax would be taken from
Industry- and placed upon privilege; for
the p mo last on given by society to any
one to have exclusive use of valuable
land, is . privilege, and Is recognized
as snoh by the lawa of civilised nations.
In the case of these four lots and
of all j other lots and lands that have
a community made value we would tax i
nothing except tha value created by
population and industry as a whole. No
product of labor would b. taxed. Thus
the owner of vacant lots would be en
couraged to employ labor And buy build
ing material to improve his lota, while
the present system of taxation, by In
creasing taxes when labor values are
added to tha land, discourages one from
making Improvements and encourages
him to bold bis lots lBia until someone
Is willing to pay him tha full value
that the . aonwnuntty ' has added - tb hla

Now take ten acres of bishly Im
proved orchard with a com ni unity-made
value of 2At an acre and an Improved
or labor-product value of I7lt an acre
making a tout value of 11000 an acre.
The Improved value consists of fruit
treea, home and other buildings . live
stock, furniture and other personal
property. Right alongside of the ten
Improved area are ten unimproved
acres worth :I0 an acre. Suppose the
general property tax rate ! 1 mills
Then the owner of the orchard pays
117.59 tax on tha unimproved or social
value or bis ten acre and 1111 0 on
the improved value, while the epecu
lstor who owns the ten unimproved
acres paya only 117.50. Because ha Is

How would these two men be taxed
under the aingle tax? Leave out of
account the railroads, telegraph, tele
phone and other public service corpo
rations which would pay muoh more
under the single tax than they pay
now. and suppose these two land own
ers are the only taxpayers In tba coun
ty. We must get from them, by the
single tax aa much revenue as they
pay ander the general property tax, or
1117.10. Tha orchardlat would be aa-

to get 1187.60 In taxesthe single tsx

lat would pay 191.75, or IS 25 leas than
ha pays now, snd the 'speculator would
pay It J 75, or 166.16 mors than he pays
now, would not that encourage In

How about the factory and the store
under the' single tax? Remember the
Ofegohlan building and lots. The Ore
gonlan Publishing company Is a manu
facturing concern; It la a merchant be
cause It sella papers and advertising
space. It Is taxed on lta building and
machinery as a manufacturing plant
If we tax factories on their product we
should tax tha product of the Oregonlan
plant; and since wa tax merchants on
the value of what they have to sell,
we should tax the Oregonlan on the
vslua of Us advertising apace. But
under the aingle tax the plant machin
ery and product of a factory would not
ba taxed, and tha building and goods
of the merchant would not be taxed.

Railroads, eleotrio lines and other
fianchlse corporations would pay mora
taxes under 'the aingle tax than they
pay under tha general property tax

to bring capital that will be Invested
In Industry rather than In land and lot

property and Improvements from taxa

tax on the social or unimproved value
of land. That will Increase the taxes
on franchise corporations snd on lands
snd cltj lots held for speculation; will
encourage men to put land to Its best
use; will lower the taxea on farmers
