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. 1r.rw fmintv sVinnlrl he Ifpnt I before the world as a good place for the homeseeker, and persist ent advertising will do the work ' and bring the desired results.
