There will lie a hallot i box; nothing more is needed." MT. Neilson is an ardent advoctttc 'of the single ta.v, haying i earned the first nrinclplea of the plan from ITenry George, while engaged iu jour- nalism in York years ago. He was a member of "the staff oC the New York Recorder, afterwar-a join- ing the Sun, and spent 1- years in newspaper aud dramatic -work in York Mis drama of the English Ema-rt set, "The Butterfly on the created no little comment in Ne'n- York last year, when it held Ihe hoards the entire season at the street theatre. ''The classes have had a long inn- Mr. Neilson said. ''Inn the schoolmaster has h-aen abroad and xhe younger artisans and mechanics are reading iheir country's history and turning their attention to the study of economics. "Democracy is socn to have a larjj- CT and fuller voice in :ihe affairs oC the English nation by the abolition of The plural voting system and by mak- ing It as eaay for a man lo get on- tho register a voter as it is lo get on 1o the. rate book. We are also, I hope, going to reform our electoral system oh a basis of adult suffrage .for men and women. "In view of theac things it Is no womler the Conservatives'and repre- sentatives oE the privileged clasEes, who pass through Canada aud a'boub the decadence of England; thiuk that their -world is coming to an end. That it should end Is the aim and purpose of the democratic party_ in Rngland." Mr. Neilson reviewed the history of the movement for Hunl it exists In Englaild, starting with the awakening oi the British people Io the fact, during Sir Henry Campbell- Biumernian's adhilnibtration, that it was impossible to get any measure of land values taxation through the House of Lords, so long as the upper 'house had an nbeolute veto. Conse- quently, in the English League for the Taxation of Iiantl Values or- ganized a campaign :to urge the gov- fe-rn-ment to lax land values In the budget. So successful was it that the government wag forced to accede lo Lloyd George's.program, and he intro- duced tho tax on land values in the budget of "The reason we asked for a Mr. Ncilson explained, "was that It should be inade a financial question in the budget and carry Tvith it the valuation of land, which we regarded as the flrst step in the proposed re- form. To the surprise of 'everybody in England the Hotiiae. of Lords threw out the budget. Mr. Asquilh dissolv- ed hia cabinet nnd went to the coun- try aud was returned with a working majority of more than 100 members. The House of Lords Ihen passed the budget, hut-Mr. Asquith saw that thej limo hnd come for dealing tvlth thej powers of that body, and they should never again he able to reject the budget, Disc he would limit the power of their vole in regard to ordinary legislation. "Our agitation for the taxing of land nil lies, therefore, not only pro- duced a Valuation ot land, but it also settled the Lords' question which had been before tho country far more than 100 years. It will take five years lo value the land, and at the end of that time we shall have "only thfi value of the land as it was in IDOf1. .but tile treasury authorities hav-a given the assurance that the values, will be brought lip. to date, once they have tho valuation basis decided, in one year. "A new agitation now begins, and that Is to urge -the government to levy a Hat tax on all laud values, so ihat we may begin Lo uutax Improve- ments and industry generally. "Reports circulated in this country, stating that Lloyd George's budget has the trillion Lolly affected industry, arc preposterous. Already the 1903 has had the effect cf forcing into" the .market estates that liave been unbroken for hundreds of years. Our trade has gone up by leaps and bounds since the introduction of Lloyd' George's budget. Our inter- national trade last year anioimted to over SG.OOO.UOO.OOO. "Hfln-d in hand with the land val- ues question, go the housing question, cho problems, the low wage question, the problems of disease and other social ills. Lloyd George realized that it: social problems, that arc pat- ent lo everyone, are to ue reformed ihe only true way Is through an econ- omic solution of the land problem.

Then he ridiculed Roosevelt's comparison of himself with Lincoln. .Mr. i-larlah-picked to pieces the Roosevelt and ers applauded, vigorously. "The., close said Bed's, "between Col.

Lincoln did something like that ainjosi every morning. "When n school girl on horseback passed bis riding party, he is said to have struck her horse an angry blow with his i-idmu 'whip, frightening the animal and almost throwing" the girl to the ground. Lincoln always had just such .1 lordly grouch as that. "The closest resemblance, however, was shown when Mr. Roosevelt, while president, in an' article published ev- erywhere, over his' own signature, Pen Angle Union Suits ,0 Q Do Delight Those Wfcd> Wear Them You will feel R6 conifbrtably clad ittypur first Pen-Angle Unioh Suit... the under- wear that fits and does not lose its shape. has been jtlie same price? will with 74 PENMANS LIMITED PARIS CANADA SWEATERS HOSIERY UNDERWEAR him die without ?n answer.
