"All property, save that of the sov sovereign,

tax can be collected only by proper

foundation of our tax system. The
collector collects by your assessment
and proceedings looking to the en enforcement

on your work. It follows that if we
are to have a tax system which is
just as between the individuals of the
county and as between the counties

also, then we must look to the asses assessors

Tax Certificates
"As I study the comptroller's re reports,
ports, reports, I am very glad to notice that
the tax collectors have been able to
collect on an average about 93 per
cent of the taxes assessed; leaving
only about 7 per cent to comprise tax
sale and errors and insolvencies list.
Of course in time, the larger part of
the tax certificates are redeemed thus
bringing higher the total percentage
of collections. In this connection, I
want to call your attention to one
fact. The size of the errors and in insolvencies

fault of the tax collector. No doubt
there are many instances when more
aggressive work by the collector would
decrease the list and amount of insol

not be called on to pay commissions

could easily have determined were not

"In this, your first convention dur during

you to consider such changes in the
existing laws as will make for im improvement

state. It occurs to me that we have
long needed a law which will force the

pioperty owner to give in his property

for assessment. The present law con

templates that he should do so, but

its practical application is a complete

failure. Unless there is sufficient pen penalty
alty penalty attached to one's failure to give

be of no eeffct. What the penalty

tions. recommendations. For my part, I believe that
every one should be forced to make a
sworn return of their property to the
assessor. If he fails to do so, there
should be a penalty of from ten to
twenty per cent added to what the
assessor may assess him with.

Not so with personalty. Let me tell

you, gentlemen, however, that while

personalty is hard to get at, yet closer

investigation on your part, and more

moral courage, will increase our per personal
sonal personal totals enormously. Each of you
men know pretty generally who owns
personal property in your county, and

when you have some fair idea of its
amount and value, I feel that you are

called upon to assess it. It takes work

People Turned Out in Force to See
and Hear the "Bean "Bean-town
town "Bean-town Choir"
After three weeks of hard practice
and untiring preparation for the
greatest affairs yet given by the B. Y.
P. U.. last Tuesday night, January
25th, found the big town hall crowded
with not only interested Belleviewites
but friends from all neighboring
towns and Ocala, who came to see. just
what all the unique advertising that
had been scattered broadcast over the
county concerning "The Beantown
Choir" meant.
There was an anxious, impatient
crowd waiting when the clock struck
eight. This was the appointed moment

for the curtain to rise and each per person
son person had invested 50 cents to enter-,
just taking the doorkeeper's word
that they would get their money's

worth. Some of them had even in indulged
dulged indulged in an extra 15 cents for a re

served seat, so the crowd had a right
to be anxious with that amount at

stake.

However, they did not have long to

wait before the curtain rose, showing
the parlor at the home of Widow
Wood. It was old-fashioned and in
keeping with the times during which
the Beantown Choir reigned.

The cast for this play was careful

ly chosen by the entertainment com committee

The Widow Wood (she would of

course, she could; all widows would)
Biiss Eleanor Abshire.
