Single Tax to Lead to Anarchy Girl
Tells Judges Farmer Soon But
a Tenant All Agree.
In the very home town of W. S.
U'Ren a 17-year-old Oregon City
high school girl, debating against
Single Tax, defeated absolutely the
arguments In favor of the U'Ren
scheme outlined by older schoolmates
in a recent debate.,
Miss Elsie Telford was the tenth
grade girl who had charge of the
debate against Single Tax and all
who heard the argument agreed with
the judges, that she won with flying
colors, despite the fact that it was
the first time that she had ever en
gaged in a debate.
Right on Her Side.
Miss Telford declared after the en
counter that she was sure of her
fight because she had right on her
side, while she was, equally sure her
friends had to debate a cause with
which they had no conviction. A
Some of Miss Telford's points were
most trenchant. Here are some of
Farmer Loses Land.
"In case weather conditions did
not favor crops and- the landowner
was unable to meet his -taxes, then
either the, Government would take
the land in payment of the taxes or
It would be sold to the highest bid
der. "This would lead to anarchy.
"But more (he homeowner would
defend his country and not so the
tenant. 'The hireling will run but

the shepherd will fight.' The man
with a home will fight for it The
man whose home is owned by the
Government, or another, will run."
Single Tax Unjust Says Girl.
Jn her opening argument tClsie Tel
ford said that Single Tax is unjust,
because all wealth should bear a
just and equal share of the expenses
of the Government If all business
and the products of labor are exempt
from taxation, which they will be un
der so-called Single Tax, taxes on land
values, water powers, natural depos
its, etc., will have to be raised accord
ingly to make up the deficit.
"For the 6ame amount of money as
before will be required to run the
Government," added Miss Telford.
"The extra tax pn water powers
and natural deposits will not affect
the common man, but the extra tax
on land will work a hardship on him.
Land Taxed, But Not Cash.
"For instance, if a man cuts some
wood and raises some potatoes, sells
them And takes the money derived
therefrom to the bank. Single Tax
says his money shall be exempt from
taxation it is the result of the man's
"But If he cuts some wood and
raises some potatoes, sells them, and
invests the money In a few lots for
his home, Single Tax says these lots
must be taxed. Does not this land
still represent the result of this man's
labor? His money In the bank Is
exempt from taxation and Is drawing
interest as well, but the same amount
of labor invested In land is taxed.
SmaW Home Owner Hit.
"It Is the man with the small home
that will not be able to pay the extra
tax. The landlord always has a way
of making others pay It The man
with a home must get it out of the
land and If his crops fail, where
"Single Tax means the Government
as owner of the land and the farmer
as tenant It can mean nothing else."

At his home in Sand Hollow on
Mnndiy morning, occured the death cf
William Hynd, one of Morrow county's
highly respected citizens. Mr. Hynd
had been sick for about a month and
under the care of a physicin, suffer
ing, as it was ascertained from cancer
of the mouth, thoogh np until this
time it was not known just what his
ailment was and it was thought his
oain and suffering was cansed from
neuralgia. Combined with the com
plications of old ase it made it diffi
cult to do more than alleviate his suf
ferings and this was done by proper
medical treatment and patient care of
a trained nurse.
A few days before death name, Mr.
Hynd seemed to recover rapidly and
was able to be np and abont the place
as usual so bis death, though not un
expected, was not looked for and came
as a shock to the family at this time.
Funeral services were held at the
farm home nn Tuesday at 11 a. m.
and the remains were brought to
Heppner and laid away in the Masonic
oemetery at this place at 4 o'clock in
the afternoon. Services at both the
house and the crave were conducted
by Rev. Charles Qoinny pastor of the
Episcooal church of Pendleton, and
were largely attended by the friends
and neighbors of the deceasd.
William Hynd was born in Dundee,
Scotland, in 1828, being at the time
of his death 84 years, 7 months and 19
days of age. He farmed in Forfar
shire. Scotland, daring his younger
years and when about 30 years of age
he moved to the north of England
where he farmed extensively, owning
some of the best farms in the county
of Durham. In 1883 be moved to
Ontario, Canada where he farmed
quite extensively till 189S when he
moved to Morrow county, making his
home with bis sons who had previously
rairchased the old Powell homestead
in Sand Hollow. Here he continued
to reside nntil the time of his death.
