j AEdUT TAXATION,
j Mr. David A. Wells is writing a
series of articles in one of the
: economic journals on taxation. It
is to be hoped that he will be able
to enlighten the people a little on
that subject, but his first article
gives poor promise of it. The
whole subject can be summed up
in a very few words. Labor pays
all taxes, that is, in this
country. In the "effete monarch
ies" of the old world it doesn't pay
quite all, for they have an income
tax. A good deal of that tax is not
paid by labor.
In this country if a poor man has
only five cents, he is taxed. If he
buys a loaf of bread with it, unto
the price of that loaf is added the
tax on the farm where the wheat
grew, the mill that ground it, the
railroad that transported it, the
building and oven in which it was
baked, the horse and wagon that
hauled it along the streets and the
grocers building in which it was
sold. There is a great deal of
aifference in the cost of the material
dnd labor in a loaf of bread and
what the starving man pays for it.
A good deal of mat difference is
You can't tax a railroad any more
than you can tax the man in the
moon. Put a hundred thousand
dollars taxes on one of them and
they will raise their tariffs just that
much. It comes out of the con
sumer and producer after all.
Taxes wont stay where you put
them. They pass on until they
reach the laborer and producer and
then they have to come.
Taxes and interest is what is
eating the life out of this nation.
Roth ought to be cut right in two
in the middle. The only way to
do it is to double wages and the
price of products. The only way
that can be done is to double the
quantity of money. That will do
WHICH IS RIGHT?

this country, such as the Rocefel

enormous fortune by interest. Tbey
were permitted to gather them by
class legislation and the decisions
of venal courts. Commodore Van

Thksk magazine economists say
that "interest is a reward for absti
nence," i.e. one is paid so much for
waiting to gratify his wants. In
deed! How much abstinence do
the Vanderbilts and Rothschilds
endure waiting for their quarterly
payments of interest?
Dr. S hkisskk, the German ex
pert, estimates the gold now in
sight in the South African 'Rand
district at $1,650,000,000, if mined
to a depth of 1,200 feet. If that
much gold is thrown into the cir
culation of the world in the next
five years, we shall see the gold
bugs beaten at their own game.
Ir the money lenders would only
remember that when wages are re
duced to the bare expenses of liv
ing (both urban and agricultural)
that the rent of capital producers
vanishes, as well as the interest on
money invested in all productive
enterprises, tiiey might be persuad
ed that perpetual contraction is not
even to their interest.

Is a land of "over production''
why should there be such loud ap
peals for charity? Class legisla
tion robs one class and makes them
paupers to make millionaires of an
other. Then these millionaires
bestow a few dollars of their stolen
wealth in charity and are held up
by a fawning public as shining
lights of christian philanthrophy.
How much we lack of civilization
Thkv are going to hang a despera
do named Gay, at Helena, Mon
tana, for killing about half a dozen
men. Now that is contrary to the
teachings of the Magazine econo
mists who all say that too many
workingmen has caused the pres
ent low prices and misery. Gay
was only trying to bring back, the
good times by killing off a few. If
the Magazine theories are true, he
ought to be given a medal, instead
of being hung.
Tom Watson, in the last edition
of his paper remarks that "the
socialists in Baltimore and there
abouts raised a most tremendous
racket during the recent campaign
and polled three hundred and odd
votes. This for socialists, was
doing remarkably well. Generally
the socialisst is a person who makes
so much noise about "platforms"
and "principles" that he forgets all
On k of the speakers, an Iowa
gold bug, in the Trans-Missippi
congress said that, "if cheaper
money was good, then the cheaper
the better. Let us make dollars
worth only one cent." Well, if
dear money is good, the dearer the
better. Let us make a dollar,
worth a million cents, so it will take
all the property in the United States
to pay interest for day. Then
prosperity would come sure.
Tin- ' Nineteenth Century says
that the aggreate quotation of the
Witwatersrand gold mining shares
has risen from 30,000,000 to
150,000,000 since last autum.
The quuestion is: How did the
Rritish gold bugs manage to crowd
$150,000,000 worth of "intrinsic"
into some gold mining shares in
so short a time? Did the South
African mining boomers take the
"intrinsic" from the Dark Conti
nent and plant it in the London
Tur. wages of agricultural labor
ers throughout England was 50 per
cent higher during the half century
after the Black Death destroyed
one third of the people, says Rogers
in his six centuries of work and
wages. That was a direct proof of
the quantity theory of money.
The money didn't die, but remained
in circulation and a greater per
capita circulation raised the wages
of workmen. There is but two ways
to raise wages. One is to kill off
same of the workmen. The other
is to increase the number of dollars.
The wage earners seem to like the
former mcthoi the best. That is
the reason they vote for it.
Thk populist press of this state
is fighting a conflict such as has
never been fought by the press
since printing was invented. It is
at the Valley Forge of the conflict
now. but although starving, ragged
and unpaid, it will, like the patri
ots who followed Washington,
march on to victory in the next
campaign. Only send us a few
supplies to hold the forces together I
for the winter, then when the
spring campaign opens, you will
see such a fight as you never saw
before. Please pay at least pi it of

Thk bureau of statistics reports
a shrinkage in exports of over
$ioo,odo,i)i hi for the year. That
is a shrinkage in value of exports,
not in the amount. It takes a very
lare pile of wheat, oats, corn, tot
ton, beef and pork to amount to
$100,000,000 in value at the pres
ent pi ices. That shrinkage in the
value of spoils means the s-hip.

The courteous reply of Prof.
Barter to Mr. Ivoach's letter ask
ing what "value is," is given be
low. From the standpoint of such
economists as Francis A. Walker,
A. J. Warner, Prof. Allard, Sir
Morton Frev.en, John P. Jones
and others of the like way of think
ing, there is scarcely a sentence
without an error, while John
Sherman and J. Sterling Morton
would agree with every line of it.
Without in any way indicating
what the errors may be the Injh -I'KNHKNT
asks some of its subscrib
ers to point out what they deem to
be errors, and it will take pleasure
in printing such communications.

Lincoln, Nku,, Nov. 19, 1895.
Mk. G. R. Roach, City:
Mv Dkak Sik You have raised
a question that it is a great deal
easier to ask than it is to answer.
You will will never get a clear
idea of "value" from anyone's defi
nition. You will have to study it
out. The word has so many phases
that it eludes strict definition. It
is only when it is applied in a given
case that its strict meaning can be
However in economics there are
some general things that may be
said about it. Polititical econo
mists tell us that value depends
upon three things:
1st. The degree of desirability of
an article, which depends largely
upon the ratio of supply and de
mand. 2nd. The amount of labor em
bodied in it.
3rd. The cost of reproducing it:
The increase or decrease in the
value of any commodity will be
found to be, generally speaking,
due to the changed operation of
one or more of these principles.
The value of some things depends
upon all three of the above princi
ples, others upon one or more of
them. For instance the price of
wheat for a series of years will de
pend mainly upon 2 and 3, but its
price in a given year will be de
cided chiefly by No. 1.
A piece of gold, whether the
government stamp is on it or not,
depends upon all three pretty uni
formly, for its value. I
The note of an indiv idual, or of a
government as a greenback for in
stance, does not cost an appreci
able amount of labor, and the cost
of reproducing it is almost nothing.
Hence their value does not de
pend on z or 3, It does depend
upon one, because there is some
writing or printing upon them,
that makes people want. them.
Their desirability consists in the
fact that with them one can get
certain things promised upon them.
If the risks of getting what ' they
promise increase, the desirability
diminishes and the value decreases.
In general decrease the degree
of desirability of a commodity
which may be done by changing
the relation of supply to demand,
or continue to put less labor into
it, or acquire the ability to repro
duce it at less cost, and you will
surely reduce its value and vice
versa. Of course, value or price
of, a commodity, is . what it will
bring in someother commodity, and
it is in this sense that I have been
using the term.
Now probably I have not given
you any light on the subject above
what you already have, but the
question is so complicated that a
letter will not let one get into the
subject very deep.

was loudly applarded in his open
