PORTLAND, Maine. April 11. To the Editor: Duke Manning calls attention to the single tax platform and asks If it Is not wrong where it says that "the single tax ts not a tax on land, and therefore would not fall on the use of land and become a tax on labor." It would be a tax, not on the use or improvement of laiSd, but on the ownership of land, taking what would otherwise go to fne owner as owner and not as user." Suppose we put the question In an other form and see how it Will look. After ail, does not the producer of wealth pay taxes, as well as all other bills out of the wealBh he produces, and what Is the difference whether it be paid to the landlord or to the State? does it not come out of labor and is it not a tax on labor? The answer must be that as labor applied to land Is the only way In whioh wealth can be produced, all taxes and rents come out of, and are paid by labor. But suppose there Is no tax on and, will the man who has only his tabor to sell fare any better? Can he obtain access to land on any easier terms? Certainly not.

The consequence will be that rent will go iip so" that the laborer will be compelled to give a larger share of the wealth his labor has produced for the privilege of producing it. If. then, a tax be laifd on land values. labor will fare lust as well. If the value of the land be all taften by tax, the laborer will not have to pay any more rent than he JId when tihe re was no tax on land.

The landlord gets all lh rent that any one will pay for the use of the land, when there is a tax on K. He can get no more when ft ts taxed up to Its full rental value. The lww of rent ts a natural law and cannot be evaded. But if the user paid the rent to the State, be would get his share of it back In benefits sucn as schools, roads, bridges, lights, poOce service. It will make no difference if he pays It to the landlord and the latter pays It to the State, the benefits will be distributed precisely the same.

Now. then if in his dealings with the landlord the laborer fares just the same whenjand-values are taken by the State, as he does when there is no tax on land, canJ a tax on land values be said to fall on labor or Its products? To be sure, all benefits derived by us from the State must be paid for by labor; but where- they is no land value tax all these benefits have to be paid for, and in addition the rent must be paid to the landlord and he be allowed to keep it. What can be clearer than "that It would be a tax not on the use or improvement of land, but on the ownership of land, taking what would otherwise go to the owner as owner, and not as A. M. RICH.

Thomas Murphy, a blacklisted railroad engineer, was shot by the mar-shall of Medina, Ohio, for begging for something to eat. Thus was the f.vaj- esty of the law vindicated, and our national prosperity proven I NOT CHARITY BUT FREEDOM. The New Earth, a reform paner that knows what kind of reform Is needed refers to the Increase of charity organ isations as "cause for sorrow rather than for rejoicing." Such Is Indeed the fact. Whstt it is found that there are persons in a community who stand In neei of charitable aid, and must coffer and perhaps die unless succored by those more fortu nate, none who have not hearts of stone can turn arway coldly and refuse to do at least a little something toward helping tfhe destitute ones. But a community or an Individual that is satisfied with a system of almts-givlng, and never seeks to discover the cause or causes of involuntary poverty and the remedy falls to discharge a plain duty.

The "boy" having taken our order returned, not too quickly, with two portions of mutton and mint sauce, which he hurriedly set down before us, and then disappeared.
