PACKER AND HIS TAXES
A Full Exposure of his Conduct at his
Own Home—A Chapter for Every Hon
est Taxpayer and Citizen to Read.
The Mauch Chunk Gazette, published at
the " supposed " home of Asa Packer, the
Democratic candidate for Governor, in its
last issue—Sept. 11—makes a clear exposure
of Packer's attempts to evade the payment of
his borough, county and State taxes. Read
what the Gazette says :
For the benefit of outraged tax payers here,
and for the information of all the honest
voters of the State, who demand an honest
man for Governor, we publish the following
" facts and figures," which are taken from
the official records of this county, and from
the documents bearing upon the subject, in
possession of the o ffi cers and attorneys upon
whom devolved the disagreeable task of com
pelling Packer, by legal process, to disgorge
the amounts of taxes due severally to this
borough, school-district, county, and poor
It should be understood, in the beginning,
that Asa Packer, after migrating from the
"Nutmeg State," and sojourning for a time
over on the Susquehanna, settled at Mauch
Chunk in the year 1833, and that, ever since,
this has been his " home "—the legal, usual,
actual, and only residence of himself and
family. During this time he staid awhile in
Washington, and drew pay as a member of
Congress from this district. He never made
a speech there, or, indeed, anywhere, and
the country knows even less of his Congres
sional career than that of John Morrissey's;
but a reference to the records of that period,
show that his name was on the rolls. This
episode in his life, however, did not remove
his legal residence from Mauch Chunk.
During the war, both the county and bor
ough were obliged to incur heavy liabilities
to keep our quota of soldiers in the field.
This was especially the case in the latter
part of the war,
when nearly every Repub
lican and war Democrat, who could leave
his family, had enlisted, and when the others,
following the teachings of Judge Packer and
his brother patriots of the Breckinridge Se
cession wing of the Democratic party, stood
entirely aloof from the Union cause. Then,
the large number of soldiers' widows and
orphans produced by the war, increased the
Poor tax. This added to the augmented as
sessment levied to pay the soldiers' bounties,
proved too much for the patriotism of Mr.
Packer. He was notified in due form by
the proper officials, in July, 1867, that the
following sums were due from him, to wit :
For State Tax $2832 71
" Special State Tax 557 96
" Borough Tax 5767 17
" School - Tax 9228 88
" County Tax 9228 88
" Poor Tax 5767 17
Total ...$33,382 77
He paid no attention to the notices, and
when spbsequently called on by the collec
tors, positively refused to pay, alleging, as en
excuse, that he had got himself amused down
in Philadelphia, and should pay his taxes:
there. The matter stood thus for some time.
The officers hoped that he would yet obey the
plain requirement of the law, and pay, with
out obliging them to resort to compulsory
measures. Meanwhile Packer still resided 1
here with his family as usual. When busi
called him to Philadelphia, as it did once
in awhile, he stopped at the Merchants' ,
Hotel. An examination of the hotel regis
afterward, showed that he had always
written himself there "Asa Packer, Mauch
Chunk." The tax-collectors finally employ
ed counsel and prepared to make a distraint
and sale of goods. Packer, not daring to
trust the matter to a suit of law, kxowine
that he had no legal residence in Philadel
phia, resorted to higgling and delays. He
employed an attorney from Philaiclphia
wbo consulted with the counsel of the of:
flcers, and the former assuring him that he
could not escape payment, finally t o 3th
day of February, 1888, handed Mt the
money. In the meantime, the comotission
and fees of counsel, with the other necessary
expenses of the protracted negotiation and
delay, amounted to a total of $2,002.84 .
Thus Packer dishonestly attempted to cheat
his own neighborhood out of $33,38/.77 in
taxes due the school-children, the soldiers,
and the unfortunate poor of the distict, in
cluding many soldiers' widows and orphans;
and actually did swindle the public treasury
out of over $2OOO, which it cost to compel
him to obey the law. These facts are as
disgraceful as they are indisputable. But I
they are not all.
The whole amount of this assess
ment here, in the year men
tioned, was $1,153,435
His real estate in this borough was
as the amount of his personal property—cer
tainly small enough, when it is admitted
that his whole fortune now aggregates about
$20,000,000. But to avoid contributing even
his taxes to his own borough and county, he
got himself assessed, as he told the collectors
here, in Philadelphia. The books in that
city were searched, and it was found that,
truly enough, he was assessed there, but for
how much ? For a total of $16,500 ! This
was made up as follows :
Monies on Interest 6,500
Salary as Vice Pres't L. V. R. R... •6,500
Two Gold Watches 200
Total $l6 , ,500
With a fortune, which at that tim —only
two years ago—must have equalled t least
ten millions, nearly all of which cam under
the head of personal property, he returns for
taxation a paltry sixteen thousand ! s per
sonalty, even at the extremely moderkte as
sessment made by the officials here, adount
ed to $1,128,385 ; yet he goes down to Phila
delphia and gives in $16,500. Tint is,
while he only succeeded in chiseling dow'
his assessment here, where somethin wt
known of his property, to less than a ulna
and a quarter, he had the hardihood WI go 1
Philadelphia, where scarcely anybody kne
him, and return even one million, one hu:
dred and twelve thousand dollars less.
It is claimed by his friends that he did n 4
return his large amount of railroad and othi
stocks to the officers in Philadelphia, becaui
of mime law which Is said to exempt stock
from local taxation in that city. But admitting
the existence of such a provision concerning
local taxation, it manifestly could net absolve
him from making a full return of all hie per
sonal property, for State taxation. Itwould
be monstrously absurd to suppose that Asa
Packer, a resident of Mauch Chunk, was re
quired by law to pay taxes on his whole pro
perty, but that by taking his carpet-bag to
Philadelphia, and pretending to reside there,
he could escape taxation for State purposes
on nearly ninety-nine hundredths of it.
Neither can this false return be Justified, as
will doubtless be attempted, by the law pass
ed half a year afterward, exempting, in cer
tain cases, individual stockholders from taxa
tion on their stocks. No such statute was in
existence at the time Judge Packer, feigning
a residence in Philadelphia, made the false
return mentioned, and no amount of sophis
try can reconcile this action with that hcm
esty and honor which should characterize the
man who aspires to be Governor of Pennsyl
But, worse than all, this champion of
Pennsylvania Democracy, this " Pride of
our Valley," notwithstanding that he has
pretended, for the last three years, to regard
Philadelphia as his home, has not paid coo
cent of taxes there, and since the year fiBl7,
when forced to pay, has paid no penolal
taxes here. Since he persisted in account
ing himself a Philadelphian, the officers here
concluded the succeedirg year not to contest
the matter again at so great a cost, but to
let him pay in Philadelphia. The re►ult
has, been that for 1868 and 1869, le has
evaded payment on his personalty altoigher.
We have no space for comment and noie is
NORTHERN Democrats were too cow
ardly to go to the assistance of tieir
Southern friends during the war, but low
that ballots are employed, they come gal
lantly to the rescue. But the same gal
lant hest that defeated him on the leld
of battle will again defeat them in °etcher.
