  • 1918 - Comments on a letter signed by Messrs. Kiefer, Garrison, Stephens and others printed in the March-April issue of The Single Tax Review:
    "It isn't necessary for the San Francisco Star to say that it does not share the peculiar views expressed by Kiefer and his 'non-resistant' associates, but it is necessary to say that the only importance of these men to us and to other Single Taxers is the fact that for some years they have been prominent in the Single Tax movement, and that we hope the Single Taxers of America will quickly and effectively relieve them of their prominence in the movement.
    .... "The overwhelming majority of single Tax men and women of America are loyal to their cuntry, and the stigma of disloyalty should not attach to them because of the attitude and utterences of a few persons. Those Americans who are not for America in this war are against America, and if there is any difference between against America and being for Germany and Prussianism we don't know what it is. It is distinctly harmful to the Single Tax cause that Daniel Kiefer is chairman of the National Single Tax League."

    "It is a consant surprise to discover how many one mets who are already largely or wholly won over to single tax. It is equally astonishing to note how easy it is to win other others. This condition here on the coast is party due to the leaven of the Canadian coast and to our necessity of competing with them for prospective residents; partly to the fact that in a state of mountains and rich valleys, old and large land grants are especially conspicuous and hence preach their warning in unescapable language. With the war conditions coming on top of these local conditions, the Single Taxers of the world have the greatest opportunity of history to exemplify their teaching."

    "Rental value is theuse-value of land; so-called selling value is merely the market value of the franchise to appropriate (ground) rent, interest, and rate of tax. To turn a part of all of (ground) rent into government revenue, is a very simple matter, but to undertake to do this by taxing a law-made privilege instead of rental value, creates a confusion of taxable values that complicates the collection of the tax on rent and makes the results of such an attempt very uncertain."
