OUR LETTER BOX. REPLY TO DR. OUIM Bow Island, Alta.. Dec. 24. 1909 Kditor Lethbridge Herald: j Dear noticed a letter in your daily issue of the 15th inst.. from Dr. F. X. Ouim. of Oshkosh, Wls., object- Do You Need Shaltlm? You probably noticed bow Hindi briskly the buroa wbMl freshly built or shaken. You renumber toe, bow much more briakly PWI wed to around when you were U TOW or twenties. The cases arc parallel You art DM AM that is choked with cells compos tlit his land cheap. Three years and men can prove up their claims on their homesteads and the railway charter is good for three years also. Already jthe prospectors and laud-brokers are trying to buy land in this country, [and then what shall be next? Is it j because the prospectors are rich men, and that the rich must always be hon- ored? Or is it special consideration from the government? Or a stroke of good luck or fortune? Or is it ing to the proposed surtax to be plac-1 cotittantly dying and beiMf ed non-residential lands held for speculation. Mr. Ouim claims that such u tax would be unjust and con- tiscatory. It is right that Mr. Ouiui and oth- er speculators should pay their just share of taxes, and the only way to get at them is through the single tax. Let improved and unimproved land be taxed acre for acre alike, then ev- eryone would contribute their just share tov.-ards local or municipal im- jprovements. Such men as Mr. Ouim I who hold large tracts of land that are becoming valuable, not through any efforts of their own to improve them, but by the settler .or homesteader who occupies the surrounding hinds and are taxed for their improvements, to build roads and bridges and erwise improve the conditions of the country. If it wasn't for the settler coming in Mr. Ouim's land would nev- er be worth one cent more than the price he paid for it. He admits he bought the land'on speculation when he says, "Since the JC.X.R. has assured us of a road j through there I have started to break jsome of my "land."
