Because the Single Taxers of Ore'

! up their cause by Inferring and de

Young Men's Christian Assoclatio.
is for Single Tax, there Is every in
dication that grave dissension. Is
brewing in that Institution.
H. W. Stone, secretary of the as
sociation, is a Single Taxer, and has
allowed meetings to be held In the
association favoring the Single Tax
propaganda. Stone, however, de
clares that his leanings are merely
personal, but do not Influence the
association In any way.
Y. M. C. A. Said Non-Political
"The Y. M. C. A. is absolutely non
political," said one of the Y. V. C.
A. officials the other day. "Mr. Stone
has his ideas, but they have noth
ing to do witih the association. Per
sonally I am opposed to those views
and I resent the idea that seems to
be abroad that the Y. M. C. A. is
for this scheme for it Is nothing
else but a scheme."
Despite this disclaimer a number
of Portland business men and friends
of the association throughout the
state declare that if the Y. M. C. A.
Intends to nter the field of politics,
or become interested in tax schemes,
they will withdraw their annual sub
scriptions. Stone May be Hushed.
The fact that the Y. M. C. A. owns
one of Portland's skyscrapers and
wants to dodge taxation on the build
ing, may account for the stand Stone
is taking," said one of these. "How
ever, I want to give fair warning
that should the Y. M. C. A. give
further opportunity for gossip over
the state by espousing, either whole
heartedly, or half-heartedly Single
Tax or any other political issue that
should be kept out of religion, I
shall not only withdraw my own
subscription, but shall hope to Induce
my friends to 'go and do likewise.'"

The hard ti'nes, scarcity of morey
sn 1 hieh rates of interest on this
coast may he largely attributed tiour
oxn lack of fcrisight. For exrnple,
the exportation! of wheat and flour
from Washingop, Oregon and Califor
n'a for the fiscal year ending Jnne
30th, 1911. amounted to $20,226,000,
while daring the same period oar peo
vla sent east, for life insurance prem
iums, $21,662 000. or over 11,400,000
more than our exoortations of wheat
and flour brought in. Any of these
U rje states have life insurance com
panies that can give as good contracts
in all respects . as tht eastern com
panies. ' The mnney paid to Oregon
companies stays io the state and helps
to develop oar own resources. These
matters are worthy of careful thought.

j We rally round the war chest .
Supplied by Mr. Fels,
And o'er the voter strive to cast
Our Single Taxer spells.
What though the scheme we advo
cate Is one whereby we'll rob
The social tree of all its roots
We're losing nothing by it
We gloat, we gloat,
As we strive to cinch the vote
Of the simple-minded public
For our communistic scheme.
Though -private rights go flooey,
Let 'em tumble, "Blooey, blooey!"
We'rel osing nothing by It
And we're skimming golden cream.
We sidle up unto the chap
Who never owned an acre.
And roar that private ownership
Is but a trouble maker.
And urge him on to break it up,
Though "poverty" It spells.
Why not? It means our salary
Thanks to our good friend, Fels.
To those who balk at Single Tax.
We make another call.
Insisting wbat we advocate
Ain't Single Tax at all.
We call It Graduated Tax
To throw them off their guard;
But called by any name you choose,
'Twill stick them Just as hard.
So rally round the war chest
Supplied by Mr. Fels.
In working for the Single Tax.
We're surely "there with bells."
Our hearts may not be In the fight,
Cut still we ll try to win it:
For thanks to Fels and to his "chest"

There is a fish In Hawaiian waters
which Is known by the native name
of humuhumunukunukukuapuan. which
means literally "sewing up the nose."
The native Hawaiian method of kill
lng- a pig to be roasted Is to smother
It, not cut Its throat, and It Is smother
ed by sewing up the pig's mouth and
nose. This fish with the long name
has spines which In ancient times were
osed as needles to sew up the pig's
mouth; hence the name more fully
means "the fish that provides the nee
dles for sewing op the nose of the
Tho Morning Star.
The morning star, an Iron ball stud-
fled with spikes and fastened by means
of a chain to a short handle, was
' much used In medieval times as a mili
tary weapon. It was exceedingly
i formidable, for when thrown it could
1 not easily be avoided or dodged, the
'chain permitting It to curve around
jthe arm or over the shield. It was
j confessedly modeled after a common
cactus which grows in every pnrt of
