Thorn- 'asson as one of the best kno-wn law- yers, of Brooklyn, who .was touring the jWest under the auspices of .George Association, Mr. Adams took ,as the pivot of his theory the fact that Jin single-taxation lay the ultimate solu- jtion of the question. Capital and la- !bor respectively represented the two i parts which constituted society in the 'generally accepted term. The former was relatively a small part of the com m unity, for it is only the few who A Let-abridge Cattle Man Says Farmers Bound Up in Wheat Calgary., May cattle rang- es of Alberta arc rapidly becoming .women and children gave one] depleted, and the old type of range the impression that employers were j cattle will soon be extinct."

Mr. Adams 'next proceeded to' contrast the in- cQTfies, and the pathetic conditions un- de'r which modern labor was perform- ed, with tljfi luxury of the affluent classes. He also felted cases to show the absurdity of.'.legai quibbling with reference to. the right to strike. If the employing class is right in saying .that these natural resources we hold are ours, there was no possibility of ending conflicts without crushing the employee class. From this it can on- ly inferred that natural resources should not be monopolized- by the few, trict may have beef.
