Cologne, November 16. The Kölnische Zeitung in its issue of November 16 draws a wholly invented connection between the “Appeal of the Rhenish District Committee of Democrats” and an “Assurance” about the refusal to pay taxes alleged to have been sent to the provinces by the extreme Left of the Prussian National Assembly. Nothing is known to the undersigned of a news report spread by members of the extreme Left concerning a refusal to pay taxes already decided on by the National Assembly.
