npJITC "thirty years' war"
Oermany from twenty millions to seven millions.
Cities, villages and even entire districts were destroyed
and wasted. Cannibalism was resorted to by the people in
their distress. To repopulate the nation, polygamy was
sanctioned and all births legitimatized.
The dread that the present war will, like the religious
wars of the seventeenth century, depopulate Europe'
hangs over the belligerents, who are already adopting
.strenuous measures to increase the birth rate. Russia
alone is free from forebodings, as the Slav race is the most
prolific in Europe, with a birth rate of 42 per 1000 popu
lation. Jn all other countries the past half century lias
shown a decrease in births.
Since 1900, the birth rate of Germany has fallen from
.'15 to 27 per 1000. Only two babes are' born in England
where in 1870 three were bom. France was pronounced
a decadent nation because of the birth decrease of the
past century. The birth rate of western Europe has de
clined for thirty-five years one per cent annually.
To the decrease of normal times has been added the
alarming decrease of war times. Belgians and Serbs are
threatened with racial extinction. English, German and
French birth rates are the lowest ever recorded. The
problem of race recruiting is absorbing the attention of old
world statesmen, lest Europe follow in the footsteps of the
ancient Roman empire, whose decline began with a dimin
ished birth rate.
France is literally buying babies. One hundred dollars
apiece is paid to mothers for the first two in a family, $200
for the third, $100 for the fourth and no question of par
entage raised. A life annuity is proposed for every
mother of four children, to be'paid by a tax upon bach
elors and childless people.
Germany is preparing to endow children and to legit
imatize children of unwedded mothers, and has lowered
the legal age for marriage to 15 years. Even Great Brit
ain is preparing to smother its puritanical standards to
encourage the bearing of children.
But the problem is economic. Children are costly lux
uries. The state must shoulder the responsibility for pov
erty prevents raoial increase. The state must provide for
the children after they are born to make them fit for citi
zenship. With the cost of war added to tlio cost of living,
children become aiu impossibility for the average family
of toilers. Adequate living wages, improved industrial
conditions and the establishment of social justice become
Perhaps the war is destined to create an improved

. HISSINGI'MR. U'REN
. ; r
thh conventim of realty dealers of the northwest
at Portland 'this week, AW S. LT'Ren was called for
and upon responding, publicly hissed because of his advo
cacy of the single tax.
This was a caviler proceeding that reflected upon the
realty men rather than upon -Mr. U'Rcn, who proved
himself superior in moral courage and lofty ideals.
The real estate dealers were actuated by ignorance
and prejudice rather than reason. The singletax will not
destroy their occupation, merely eliminate the unearned
increment. It will staplei.c realty values and business
conditions generally by eliminating, or at least minimiz
ing, laud inflation and speculation.
Most of our periods of depression can be traced to the
previous period of speculation. Much of our economic ills
are due to withholding natural and common resources,
lilce the land, from use that a few may profit from. the
values created by the many. Persons withholding a nat
ural resource like the land from development should be
forced by taxation to utilize it or permit others to.
Our present land ami tax system penalize industry
and enterprise and place a premium upon inertia and
slothfiilness. The person utilizing the land is punished
for it by taxation, while the owner of idle land is rewarded
for keeping it idle by light taxes, and increased values due
to Ins neighbors enterprise.

according to its density. An acre in the heart of Greater
New York is worth a fabulous .sum because surrounded
by millions of people. Kxactly as good land in an isolated
spot is comparatively worthless.
The value create'd by the community should properlv
be restored to the community by taxation, for the land
owner has done nothing Tto make his property valuable.
Were this unearned increment restored to the commiinitv,
other taxation would be unnecessary, and instead of creat
ing a few idle billionaires we would be creating cities
worth while audjiholishiug poverty.
