It would read j it is clear Ehat taxing land a year as ground rent, for the I use of that, spot of Canada. How i many farmers have any land so val- ;liable that a spot about as big us the ;ground their house rests on will rent for a year? This is only an il- lustration of the enormous value of land in our towns and cities. And 1 farmers are seeing, more and more 'of them every year, that this value it> not wealth produced by labor, but is power, strength, force or value in the hands of ihe holders of the title deeds, jio lake wealth, such as crops, cattle, produce, goods, etc.. produced by la- bor for the privilege of using tlmt spot of earth. In the case referred to it is not the people of Calgary alone who are laboring to pay one man only this enormous ground rent, but the people of all Alberta are taxed, tolled and levied on to pay this rent. Or. in other words, this title deed is a mortgage, ever growing, growing, growing as 'the land grows in value, and the beneficiary is the holder of the title deed, and the people at large are the burden bearers, ,more and more of whom, every year, are sinking into the slough of poverty and despair on account of this grow- ing burden. Of course this is a ter- rible fact but it is true, although [many do not yet seem to realize it. I Either people must seize these val- jues for revenue, by direct taxation, or j be destroyed. For the victims, the j burden bearers, there is no other plan jot" salvation. The farmers of Alberta jare not the only farmers who see this [fact. There are others. It is liecom- jing a lively topic among the Grangers in the United States. For instance, in tlie National Grange monthly, the fol- lowing from a farmer in New York state makes very interesting reading, and shows that farmers everywhere are doing some clear thinking: "Farmers complain, and justly BO, of being overtaxed; that for' benefits received th'ey pay far in excess of what town and city dwellers pay. We have tried for many years to get rid of this unjust burden, but. our efforts i have been In vain and have tended rather to increase our load. The rea-1 son has been that we did not under- stand economic law as effecting the incidence of taxation, so when we taxed mortgages we only raised the rate of interest on ourselves, or else made it more difficult to get money, SIR SAM HUGHES COMING WEST Ottawa.
