4 3-EDrfoft CjBosicVki In conaideniur a
simple tax on land values we must bear
in mind what these values are and how
they are created. The solitary settler in
a wilderness might improve 160 acres to
a high degree ; but to one who came
along and offered to buy hinr out.'his
land apart from the improvements could
have no 'possible vlue "wMIe"' along' "side
of him was to be had equally good land
for the taking hp'. ' But' if Vither settlers
come in and surround the first one, and
commence to improve, then- the land
begins to acquire a value that is not due
to the exertions of any ' individual, but
to the join labors and accumulation's of
the whole community. And should the
situation of the place be such that a
postoffice, a store', a school house and a
church be built thereon and the place
becomes a' trading center, the added
value acquired by the land would be
more due to the effects of human' associ
ation. Should the state charter a rail
road to tap this point ; should ' individ
ual enterprise erect mammoth factories,
machine shops, etc., and the day of
street railway, electric lights and costly
water works arrive, our first settler the
owner of the town site though he toiled
not, neither spun, might eventually find
himself a millionaire, under present
conditions, through the operation of
the great law' of human pro
gress which finds its prime factors
in association. Yet twenty miles away
may be an individual far. more energetic
and industrious than the first-named,
Who has toiled early and late to improve
his farm, yet its value has come up very
slowly, because population is scanty
there and land still ' isn't worth very
much more than the improvements cost.
There is of course a natural rent, due to
'the ' superior 1 fertility, the presence of
minerals, etc., but the greatest increase
of land values is due to population "and
the wealth its presence accumulates..
The presence of millionaires, their stocks
and bonds, to "which the Chronicle re
fers, all inure to the benefit of 'the land
holders. ' All men know' that the bring
ing of capital intd a country means a rise
in land values. In 1886, the New York
Sun' estimated that ' $25,000,000 " were
brought into Kansas by the immigration
6t that yearl- The consequence was' that
lands, 'which, when the writer was there
two years before, you couldn't give away,
at once-jumped- up to astonishing figures,
and men who sold out town property be
came rich through the "unearned incre-
menti'.'j Now 5 the )money has all left
that non-productive country, and popu
lation with it, lands have dropped again
to nominal figures.' iJ M -.
The lands of, let us say, any county,
will be found" 6n the "average' 6 have- an
equal value with the Improvements and
personal property accumulated 'thereon.
The -Jreason being that' they get 'their
value from the presence of these products
of trhmanlfidbstry'andr'fhg' accompany
ing population. If assessments show
personal property much less in value
than the land.itdnly'proves the impossi
bility of a 'fair and just assessment of
personal property that some of it has
escaped, taxation. ( Now as it is this .Tory
personal property and these imnrove-
jnents that give value to land, what, can
be more fair than to tax these - land val
ueswith h.e burdens of soc.ie.tary ,gov
ernment. t The values cannot escape. the
assessor. No man .can say of the com
iiunity value bf the land lie" holds : ''!
made this." That value is the joint
production of all ; let us tax it , for the
joint benefit of all. Wallace Yates.
1 Saturday last at 5 :S0 p. m. as an east
bound ' freight train' neared bridge No.
IIS which is alittle this Bide of Viento the
engineer, Mr. Powers, discovered when
within two or three car's length that the
bridge-was -on fire-. -The -moment-the
engineer saw the fire he reversed his
engine but the next moment perceiving
that the train would certainly stop on
the bridge he threw back the lever and
made a dash to clear it. The violence of
the snap, when the locomotive made a
fresh start, broke the train in two, back
of the first car 'and the engine and this
car dashed over' the half btirned 'bridge
while they reeled and staggered' like a
drunken 'man. It was a close call for
the' engineer and fireman, and to make
matters Worse the car which staid with
the locomotive got derailed 'and while
the'engine made 'the east' end tf-'the
bridge in safety the car had to be left to
its fate and in a short time it was burned
to" a' cinder .--Meanwhile ten flat cars
loaded wtthTrocK-"and We"cohi'mon car
filled with' merchandiser for Thrf Dalles
broke through the bridge - and "fell one
upon "'another thirty-nveL feet; below.
(-while one car and the caboose' remained
bh'the track. ' The cars that felf through
the bridge were soon enveloped iff flames,
fend nothing amenable to the fire was
left. Fourteen bents of the bridge were
burned and it was almost a ' miracle that
no Kves were lost. ": ' The onl Jr Injury done
to anyone", ed far as wef could learn ', was
to fireman Boyd,' whose face was blacked
and bruised somewhat 'by " striking
against the tender. The injury however
was not' serious and he is able to go
about his work as usual. :

tempted to catch the animal by throw
ing a rope on him, he made a desperate
break for liberty by trying to jump over
the fence that surrounded the enclosure.'
The corral is made of logs and is nearly
or quite eight feet high. IJncle Jim
Vanderpool was sitting on the topmost
log in the panel which the horse tried to
jump. . This log was knocked off the
fence and Uncle Jim with it. In the fall
he received a blow about the head that
knocked him senseless for a time ; but,
fortunately, his hurt was not a serious
one, and he soon rallied. The horse fell
over, the fence on the outside, back down,
into a fire that was being used to heat
branding irons,' and was severely burned.
