Up in Washington a woman is
asking for a divorce on grounds
that her husband hypnotized her
into marrying him. Wouldn't
there be a merry time if every
body who might honestly use such
an excuse would make up- their
minds to do so? Hypnotism is
right, and it applies to both sexes.

the real estate valuation of De
tro t, the Ford town, had risen
$50,000,000, absorb'-ng in that
one week practically every dollar
of tho wage Increase in 'its rent
and business exactions upon the
public that lived on the wages
Such a condition, he said, could
not exist under a s'ngle tax ad
ministration. A quotation from
Senator Robert LaFollette, that
the railroad stocks contained
$12,000,000,000 in water, he said,
was true; but 4he farms of the
nation contain more than 12
time3 that much, he declared, in
unearned increment of land val
He stated that when the New
York elevated railroad was built,
it wa3 held forth as a great boon
to the people who could get cheap
rates; but it was the land owners
who made the hundreds of mil
lions of dollars. The New York
subway, that cost $35,000,000 and
wS tc be a boon because It
brought cheap homes and .trans
portation to the toiling masses
paid 20 times its cost to the own
ers of lands that were benefitted
The speaker held that "the farm
er would not pay an excessive
tax on the s'ngle tax theory; for
only abcut one-tenth of the real
estate valuation of Oregon is ac
tual producing farm lands. The
Morzan building of Portland, he
said, paid $72,000 ground rent
year. This one lot would pay as
much under the single tax system,
he said, as 130 average Oregon
farms of 250 acres. He would
convert the unearned increment of
land values into "wages," and in
stead of having 10 men for 9"
jobs, ho would have nine men for
10 jobs, putting wages to a pre
mium and so up to a peak where
they vould stay.
Bonds Not Taxable
A question - was raised - as to
whether if a man had $50,000
worth of bond, they would be
taxable. They would not, accord
ing to the speaker. He had stat
ed that there were some $60,000,
000,000 in untaxed bonds in the
country; which under this inter
pretation wouldn't pay a cent.
