The famous budget of Mr. I.lod
Ceorgo furnishes tho issue that
n.ight be epitomized as a struggle of
people against gormandizers of mon-
e) nnd property. In April last the
Chancellor of the Exchequer was
confronted with a deficit for the
coming j ear of $75,000,000; He
faced the situation by presenting a
tevenue measure declared by the
Conservatives to be revolutionary.
This budget has undergone a great
many changes, but the latest state
ment of lis general terms Is git en
by the Outlook as follows:
1. An Increase of i per cent In
the Income tax on all unearned in
comes and on earned Incomes over

per pound on tobacco.

9. A tax of two-tenths of one per

value of undeveloped land.
10. A duty of 10 per cent on the

Owing to the radical move against
the "conserntle" property men of
the country, this extraordinary
budget has raised a constitutional
question, which by the nctlon ot
jesterday tho House of Lords has de
clded Bhall be fought to the finish.
Tho country divides on the ques
tion of the right of the Houso of
Lords to deal with meaaures ot taxa
tion. The House ot Commons has
held rigidly to the policy declared by
the Commons In 1G71 that "In all
aids given to tho king, by tho Com
mons, the rate or tax ought not to
be altered by the Lords." While this
has not been admitted, the llou?e of
Lords has submitted tn it.
