Pittsburg St. Bring Your Prescriptions Here! , The Store Your Doctor Recommends UN APPEAL To the Citizens of Connellsville Let's suppose that you were denied the right of walking on the paved sidewalks or of driving your automobile on the paved streets, and were compelled to travel the muddy back alleys, or that when you appeared on the streets at night, the street lights would be turned out, or that you awoke at night and found your room filled with smoke, called the fire department and if refused to respond, or that burglars attempted to enter your home, and the police department refused you protection, or that your children were refused admittance to the public schools or playgrounds, or that you were refused the use of the public library, and suppose that the reason given by those in authority for refusing you these public services and conveniences was the fact that you had failed to pay your taxes Of course none of these things will happen because these services and conveniences are privileges that are part and pracel of your right as a citizen of this, the best nation on earth But do you think it is fair that you should accept these public services and conveniences without doing your duty as a citizen by paying the taxes lawfully assessed against you Citizenship is not all privileges, it also entails duty. The same Constitution which guarantees to you the rights and privileges of citizenship, also imposes upon you the duty of paying taxes and provides the taxing authorities with legal means of collecting them One of these means of collection is to distrain or levy on personal property (Household goods, furniture, appliances, jewelry, automobiles, merchandise, stocks, bonds, etc ) , arid advertise it for sale by the posting of ten (10) notices in the immediate neighborhood of the delinquent taxable This means of collection applies to both property and personal taxes Another legal means of collecting personal taxes is by the attachment of wages These methods of collection have not been generally used in Connellsville, and because their use is embarrassing to those persons upon whom they are used, I sincerely hope it will not be necessary for me to use them in a single case However, if those who have not been paying persist in further evading payment, 1 will be compelled to resort to their use The taxing authorities are demanding action So please pay your taxes and thereby relieve me of an unpleasant duty Very Respectfully, C.
