A Reply to the Single Taxers iDISTRICT NEWS PINCHEJt CREEK The following communication com batting BltiKfe tax IB published by Horiild, as'It Is tho policy of this paper to bo absolutely fnir to all parlies. Tho writer of the following let tor is a Socialist, A few weeks ago-we a visit from iMr. Henry George, Jr., tho son or tho recognized authority on the "Single- Tax and fie hrlur- ed on Ills father's theory to a small and apparently appreciative audience. At tho conclusion of the lecture, the speaker invited questions and discus- sions, and I put to him five simple questions, all ben ring on the subject of evening, but the answers given I'cre entirely unsatisfactory and ev- Bivo. Mr. George's 'plea was: That to reply to my questions as I desired would compel him to discuss Social- sm, which he refused to do. Now, when the leading light of tho Single Taxers cannot discuss the, varying phases of Political Economy in order Lo show them to greater .advantage than his own peculiar theory, then it clearly shows without much probing he weakness of the much lauded pan- acea for all our social ills. In a recant issue of the local papers here appeared a report of an ad- dress given by Messrs. Man waring and Mecch, of this city, before the sorth Lethbridge Ratepayers' Asso- ciation.

BALMORAL BLOCK, LETHBRIDGE. Henry George, it is to have all taxes for city improvements collected from land'valuations. For instance, say a few years ago 1 buy on tlie install- ment plan, two lots: I have them, clear, and, save sufficient money., to them a two-roomed shack. The next two lots to mine are owned by a new a monied gent.; ho goes to work ana erects on bis two lots a plain several stories and n the manufacture and distribution' of his products he uses the city's light power, water, etc., and the teams ho engages" have the use of the streets al which it takes a considerable sum to keep up' the wear and Do you consider this a good Oh, yes, for the man that owns the plant, but not for me who only owns a shack. under Single Tax I would have to pay the same tax-as.

In conclusion, I would say that I mine yesterday, but had to wait al1 day to get loaded and some stayed over night.

The so-called Single Tax is no new invention of. Henry George, as is gen- erally supposed. The idea of taxing land values as the chief means of raising national revenue was advocat- ed brv the French econnomlsts of the fifteenth century.
