THE GRADUATED TAX.
It woo in A'rniiwh Jad Manor"'? nl Kill
Off All TruU and Combines.
The National Graduated Tax society,
which has its headquarters at Herlln,
Pa., and which publishes a quarterly
there in advocacy of its theory of tax
ation, has for its object the passage by
congress of alaw establishing a gradu
ated national tax, the proceeds to be
used in administering the government
and the surplus in making public im
provements. The proposition is worthy
of consideration and study by all who
are interested in better government
and just relations between the classes.
The plan of the graduated tax seems
to be more just and reasonable than
the tax upon land values, solely, which
is advocated by that faction of reform
ers known as the single taxers, inas
much aa it proposes to tax all descrip
tions of property, while the single
taxers would exempt all prop
erty, except land, from taxation.
While the single taxers have a
very boautiful theory that wealth
created by the possessor through his
Industry and good management should
not be subject to the burdens of taxa
tion while it is possible for the ex
penses of the commonwealth to be
met by a tax upon the profits of values
which have been created by the com
munity, still the fact remains that, un
til the equilibrium of society, which
they assert would be brought about by
their theory of taxation, has been
established, there would be a class of
millionaires and corporations who have
amassed immense wealth under pres
ent unjust conditions who would go
scot free. The graduated taxers pro
pose to tax land values and all other
values as well, which seems much more
equitable and just Land values are
not the only values which have been
created by the community. As a
matter of fact, it is the com
munity which creates all values,
except such as the ox finds in a good
pasture, or as the aborigine of a South
sea Island found in a banana grove be
fore the sails of commerce disturbed
his quiet. Any valuable thing before
it becomes wealth must be accumu
lated, and accumulation beyond the
personal needs of the possessor is val
ueless in the absence of community.
All wealth is the product of the land,
and it is no more just to permit an in
dividual or an association to monopo
lize the product of the land than it
would be to permit a monopoly of the
land itself. The accumulation of vast
wealth by individuals and associations
has been made possible by unjust so
cial conditions, and this wealth should
now be compelled to bear the burdens
of government and foot the bills for
The Graduated Tax society has had
a bill before congress, and for the com
ing second session of the Fifty-third
congress the bill will be known as
House Bill 4,808. The income tax bill
which was passed by congress was de
cided by the supreme court to be un
constitutional because it exempted in
comes below a certain figure, thereby
making it class legislation. The grad
uated taxers, it is presumed, will avoid
this snare by making the tax appli
cable 'to all incomes or all wealth,
whether in large or small holdings,
but graduated according to the amount
held by an individual or corporation.
As the income tax bill was passed by
congress, it would not seem to be an
impossibility to secure the passage of
this bill. But the chances aro against
it The revenues derived from it
would be so enormous that it would do
away with the necessity for the pres
ent system of internal revenue; tariff
duties for revenue would no
longer be necessary, and that would
take away the ammunition with which
the two old parties light their cam
paigns; it would shortly extinguish the
national debt, and that would leave
no excuse for government bon'ds,
which would kill the national banks.
It would reduce the burdens of the
producing classes and increase the ob
ligations of the exploiting classes, and
that is a thing to which the latter do
not propose to submit while money can
influence elections or bribe legislators.
It would approach an equality of taxa
tion though, as Gen. Percy Daniels, of
Kansas, the author of the bill, very
t truthfully says, it would not at first
nearly reach it Equality of taxation,
as defined by Mill, is an equality of
sacrifice. Under this definition it is
easily seen how great a discrepancy
there is between our present methods
and justice in taxation.
The immense sum that would be
raised by the bill under consideration,
as explained by the author, should be
used lor such specific purposes as
would hasten its return to the pockets
of the people, and in this process leave
evidence of permanent benefit The bill
includes measures for accomplishing
this providing that after the expenses
of assessment and collection have been
met, the balance shall be appropriated
for these purposes, as follows: First, to
pay pensions, interest on the public
debt, and all other war charges, in
-eluding the balance now due ex-soldiers
on account of the dishonest
money in which they were paid; sec
ond, the support of the military estab
lishments of the states; third, after a
liberal appropriation for the above
purposes, there would be left from a
--billion to a billion and a half of dollars
to be used in setting all our idle labor
at work on an extensive system of pub
lic improvements to Improving our
water ways; to building great storage
reservoirs at every available point on
the tributaries, large or small, of our
fivers, for decreasing the spring floods
and increasing the dry weather flow;
to rebuilding and improving country
roads, and to establishing forest parks.
San Luis Obispo (Cal.) Reasoner.
Thousands of people are only just
beginning to study the question, "What
is capital?" If it be true that it is
"stored labor," then how can these
men own so much "stored labor?" If
it be true that all large aggregations
of wealth are "collections of stolen
oronertv.' don't we have a new rule
lor the settlement of this question? II

Morgan County, Colorado
Morgan county is not "way out on the
frontier." Don't allow any idoa of that
sort to take possession of you. Nothing
could be further from the truth. Morgan
county is more prosperous than any sec
tion of equal size m Illinois or Ohio. Its
citizens are ns intelligent as any in the
country. Its educational and religious
advantages as good as the best. Its cli
mate as healthful and pleasant as any in
the world. You must visit Morgan
county to appreciate it properly.
Morgan county Has any number ot ad
vantages ovornine outof every ten farm
ing sections of the United States. No
crop failures; ho inuluriu; no hot winds;
no intense heat; no bitter cold, me peo
ple are friendly. The system of irrigation
is co-operative and economical.
This year s yields are beyond belief.
Think of ten per cent of the wheat fields
iu tho county averaging 50 bushels to the
acre. Outs, barley, corn, potatoes and
alfalfa made juHt as good u showing.
One man made $1,.150 from three acres of
onions. Another has already received
1 1,520 from the proceeds of 70 acres of
wheat. A third cleared SjHisO lroin bees
The prico of land ranges from $15 to
$30 per acre including perpetuul water
right. 80 acres are as much as one man
can farm and if lie goes in for market
gardeningor fruit raising both of which
are very successful tlicre he will find
that 40 acres will knep him busy.
Detailed information about Morgan
County together with full particulars of
this year's crops is contained in an
illustrated booklet issued by the Passen
ger Departmentof the Burlington Route,
atid now ready for free dHitribution. A
copy will be mailed to any one who will

The democrat like Senator Vest,
who wears himself out talking- for free
silver and then says if the democrats
nominate a gold standard candidate he
will give him a hearty support, and all
loyal democrats will rally to his sup
port, may be an astute politician, but
he is alike destitute of principle or
patriotism. Partyism is all he can
boast of. Star and Kansan.

MRS. N. C. MILLER.
Of Fort Wayne, Ind., writes on Nov. 29, 1894:
"I was afflicted for forty years with heart
trouble and suffered untold agony. I had
weak, hungry spells, and my heart would
palpitate so hard, the pain would be so acute
and torturing, that I became so weak and
nervous I could not sleep. I was treated by
several physicians without relief and gave
up ever being well again. About two years
ago I commenced using Dr. Miles' Remedies,
One bottle of the Ileart Cure stopped all
heart troubles and the Restorative Nervine

Lonesomeby Hello, old man!

with you. My wife is also away.
Widowly Don't be sarcastic. It's not
the loneliness that worries me, but the
matter of letter-writing.
Lonesomby How so?
Widowly Well, If I fill my letters
with declarations of love, and tell her
how much I miss her, she'll come home
to enjoy the sentimentality at closer
range; if I write an indifferent letter,
she'll come home to see what's the mat

come home to see if I've run off with
another woman. So what's a man to

"Accidents?" said the old sea captain.
"No, we never have any to speak of on

ago, the ship caught fire down in the
hold and we never discovered it till we
got Into port and began to unload."
"That's strange. What put the fire
"Why, it burned down through to the
sea and the water put it out. Couldn't
burn the water, you know."
And the captain walked away smil

tonished that he never thought to ask
why the ship did not sink.
