to the producers of all wealth for agess |

one xvho xviU not flinch front xvhat I deem
the paths of truth and justice , I dcsiro to
present a fexv facts apropos to the ques
tion.Noxv xx'ith your kind permission T xvill
point out the effects of biioh a tax. But
before going on , letns clear up some |
facts , xx-hieh , simple though thov bo , are.
persistently and dogmatically rtveV-
looked or ignored.
Iu discussing political economy ( the
labor question ) xvii have three primary
factors to consider , viLand , labor '
and capital. The moaniugof these three
must bo distinctly understood , anil they
must have a fixed meaning.
Laud is the product of nature : the gift
of Cod to man. It is a fixed factor.
Nothing man can do'ca n increase or
decrease it one io.ta. It is indispoilsiblu
toman. Without land ho can hot live.
and those xvho lio.ld Iho key to use , hold
llio key to the life of his felloxv man.
Wilhout it the laborer cannot exert his
labor and produce xvealth. Labor is the
poxvor of man , with or without the aid
of machinery , to produce xveallh. This j
he only do by hax'ing lecourse , dii ;
rcctly or indirectly , lo land. Wealth is
the product of labor , and that alone . It
is the accumulation or saving of labor. ,
It is a factor xvhich is not fixed. Its increase - '
crease or decrease depends upon the cX" '
ertion or ix'ant of it by labor. Wealth isri .
also checked bv taxation , and thoheavierii
the lav the greater the check. A '
tax for example of fifty cents a piecu
upon fruit trees xvould greatly tend to
diminish the production of this staple.
If a tax of $ i a piece bis levied the plant
ing of fruit lives xvould eeaso , and everyj j
body having them xvould bo quite liable j
to chop them doxvn. !
By this .simple example it xvill be seen
that no matter hoxv small , the tax upon
production ( xvealth and capital ) the ten
dency xvill hu to check : it. A tax upon
xvealth is , in tact , a tax upon labor.
Dr. Adam Smith has xx-ell defined cap
ital as that part of xx-e.ilth xvhieh is used
to produce morfl xvealth. Hy placing all
tax upon land all other tax must bo re
pealed. Let us see xvhat these are.
I once read an editorial in ono of the
Lincoln dailies. that taxation is in reality
a very small item , so small that it is of
no consequence in our social fabric . Let ,
that editor xvi pc the blur of ignorance ,
xvillful or real , out of his eyes and look
around him. We have a protective tari.T
of about 10 per cent. Some of it goes to
tiic gox'crnment txnd a goodly share finds
its xvay into the pocket ? of monopolies.
