there was something beside
the price that was cheap, when

by Kodak workmen in Kodak

to satisfy us, and the results

Oregon Equal Taxation
The Gazette Times is in receipt
of a communication from the sec
retary of the Oregon Equal Tax
ation . League, Mr. Chas. H.
Shields, which sets forth the
objects of that organization.
The principal work before the
League, of course, is the defeat
of the single tax measure.
This League holds that private
ownership in land is an import
ant factor in social progress; it
therefore opposes the single tax
system, the ultimate end and
object of which is the destruc
tion of private property in land.
The League is now circulating
an initiative and referendum pe
tition for a bill which provides
for restoring to the people of
Oregon the rule of uniformity in
taxation throughout the state,
which rule was destroyed at the
last general election by the adop
tion of the County Home Rule on
taxation. Public speakers hired
by the Joseph Fells Fund "Com
mission (which Commission is
furnishing the necessary funds
tn introduce the sinrfe tax. in
Oregon) have made the state
ment that the specihe purpose ot
the County Home Rule on taxa
tion was to allow experiments
in Single tax. The State Tax
Commission will submit to the
people a bill providing for exemp
tions on household furniture and
personal effects; otherwise the
hill nrenared bv the League
would have included an exemp
tion. The citizens of Oregon are
tired of this shifting and chang
ing in tax laws. A law of one
kind for this county, and a differ
ent law in the adjoining county,
and so on, is extremely confusing
and detrimental to the interests
of the state. Investors should be
nhlp to look urjon Oregon as a
state with a reliable governing
power. We have the greatest
natural resources in the west,
and could enjoy the greatest
growth and development, and
we will, if we will be conserva
tive in our legislation.
Single tax has tor its end state
ownership of land. Under such
a system land values must decline.
No investor or promoter would
buy land in any country wnen
values are declining, and most
psrieciallv where there is no hope
of a renewal of values.
The Equal Taxation League
have for distribution a book on
tha enhiprt. "Sinffle Tax Expos
ed." Our people are interested
. "la Jl
m this subject and wisn to stuay
IT WP therefore recommend that
they get this book and read up.
It will be an aid to you in settling
how you should vote this fall on
the single tax measure.
Judge Patterson, as secretary
of the Boost Club, has been very
busy for the past two months and
a half. At the time he took
charge of the work there was a
large amount of accumulated cor
respondence on hand unanswered.
The judge has cleaned this up
and has distributed as much as
4000 peices of booster literature
and answered no les3 than 500
personal letters in reply to special
inquiries, and these have gone
out.to the four quarters of the
inhabited globe. Our advertis
ing matter is just now beginning
to have effect and the work must
be kept up. It requires funds to
pav postage, salary and printing
bills. Subscriptions to this fund
to the amount of $123 per month
I .V.al A
have been made but utile oi it
collected. When the secretary
calls on you be prepared to pay
up, at least the three months
now due. that the fund to carry
on the publicity work shall be
replenished, and then this money
should be collected each month.
