I LAND REFORMER'S DEATH. r News has been received in London of the death in Philadelphia of Mr. Joseph Fels, the well-known land re- former and the head of the firm of the Sales Company, Ltd., makers of Fels- Naptha soap. Mr. Fels, who was reported to have made a big fortune out -of soap, was a general subscriber to the funds which had as their object the advancement of the movement for the taxation of land values. He was a keen sympathiser with the woman suffrage movement and in August last he invited Mr. George Lansbury to his residence in Cornwall- terrace to recuperate after his release from prison. Mr. Lansbury stayed at the house some days, and Mr. Fels gave him permission to receive a depu- tation of East-End workers, who marched from Bow and Bromley, to hold a demonstration outside the resi- dence.
