As Henry George was the author
of Single Tax and as his master work

Single Tax advocates draw their in

as Joseph Fels, who Is financing the

"If the land belongs to the
people, why continue to permit
land owners to take the rent, or
compensate them in any manner
for the loss of rent?"
No Possible Question.
Is there room for further question
as to what Single Tax means? Can
you' not see that the object In plac
ing all the burden on land is to
destroy land values, to drive the dag
ger deeper and deeper Into private
ownership of land until the rent value
is taken In the form of taxes.
Then Single Tax will have accom

From all over Oregon I have re

Tax really is. Widespread and ex

has been, there is yet much ignorance
regarding it This I propose to dis
Single Tax is offered as a system
of taxation. It is offered as a tax
reform. It is offered as a panacea
for all the ills of society. We are
told that under the magic influence
of Single Tax, the inequalities so
apparent in society will completely
disappear; that crime, want, misery,
and even physical imperfections will
vanish with the introduction of this
peculiar system of so-called taxation.

to those whose envy and prejudice
are easily awakened, and most gen

he was placed under a fire of the hot
test nnd most severe kind. The scream

the musketry thoroughly demoralized
him. He became absolutely sick and
paralyzed with fear. lie was s6 weak
from nervous excitement that he lost
physical control over himself.
General Grant came up at the very
climax of his fright, and, noticing his
pale face, his blue lips and chattering
teeth, lie salil: "Captain, you are fright

will get over It. Suppose," continued
Grant, "1 should come to you with a

you to thrust your hand Into tlrt; hat nt

Do you think your chance of getting
that black bean would be very good?
Well, your chance fur being hit under

for drawing the black beau."

MORTGAGES ON LAND.
Why It I Essential That They Should
As the value of land to the owner
Increases so does the security of mort
gage Investments given ou that laud
increase. A mortgage may be consid
ered as a deed of the land which re
vests the title In the original owner or
his successor on the paying on: or the
mortgage or the bond or uote which
the mortgage secures.
Mortgages are recorded In public
offices, called registers, recorders or
county clerks' offices, in much the same
way that deeds are, so that nny one
buying the land Is bound to take no
tice of them, and the land Is bound by
them, no matter to whom the land Is
conveyed, and no one has a right to
say that he bought the land uot know
ing that a mortgage was on it. for he
Is presumed by law to know such
facts, as a search of the title in these
public oflices would reveal.
If, however, the holder of the mort
gage does not cause the mortgage to
be recorded then any innocent pur
chaser of the land can take it clear of
the lieu of the mortgage.
In no particular has the law of this
country gone further than in the elTort
