"ENGLISH BUSINESS MAN MOST
HEAVILY BURDENED IN THE
WORLD," SAYS LONDON TIMES
—OTHER PAPERS FOLLOW.
London, May 17. —The gederal im-j
pression made by David Lloyd- j
George's intricate and portentious
budget is that as a net result the
businessman is more heavily taxed in
Great Britain than in any other coun-:
try in the world.
As the Times remarks: "We shall;
be surprised if, both by what it does
and by what it suggests, it does not
increase the uneasiness of all who
have property to be taxed and tend
still further to that depression of
trade which it should be the business
of the chancellor of the exchequer to
"The budget is so large and amor
phous that it is hardly surprising
that in the lobby of the house of
commons the united chorus of both
parties In that Mr. Lloyd-George has
Indeed, opinion upon the various
complicated proposals can hardly be
said to have matured yet. Opinion
among the ministerialist party does
not appear to be by any means unit
ed. A large body of the radicals are
pleased with the budget, regarding it
as the embodiment of radical finance.
ChanceUor Is Courageous.
There are others, however, who
consider that the proposals should
have been much simpler and that the
present time is ill chosen for mak
ing concessions to any interests. On
one point every one is united, Mr.
Lloyd-George can not be accused of
any lack of courage in his convic
The Financial Times remarks: "Al
though this is his first budget and
as the chancellor of the exchequer
le a mere gosling, he has gone for
the whole farmyard like a veteran
"One general impression is very
widely made by this very complicated
budget, and that is the huge deficit
of nearly 16,000.000 sterling (SBO,
000,000) is to be raised almost ex
clusively at the cost of the wealthy
and well-to-do. They are'struck at
in all sorts of ways, through the ml
come tax, legacy duties, estate duties,
stamps upon their investments, their
land, their royalties, their brewery j
dividends and their automobiles."
So that when Mr. Lloyd-George!
exclaims rather theatrically. "Mr. [
Emmott. this is a war budge,t" his I
words carry a meaning which he did j
not intend. He talks about waging'
war against poverty, but, as the i
Times again remarks —and the
Times, be it remembered, was until
recently a strenuous government or
gan—"that is never really waged by
unjust exactions from those whose
custom prevents worse poverty than
any we know and whose brains and
capital count for at least as much as
thews and sinews."
The Exempt the Ones Benefited.
Unless men exempt from the in
come tax either smoke or drink they
do nt(# pay a single penny toware*
making up the deficit, mainly due to
the old age pension scheme, of which
they reap the whole benefit. The
doctrine of social ransom has never
been carried quite so far, yet Mr.
Lloyd-George is of the opinion that
to show any reluctance to pay is to
be at once shabby and shortsighted.;
Another important point to be
noted is that the automobile industry
has been exceptionally difficult to
establish in this country, yet auto-'
mobilists are assailed with unexpect
ed vigor. They are taxed on their:
cars, they are taxed on their petrol,
and the expense of keeping automo
biles is so severely enhanced that
there is very likely to be a real
check put upon their use.
High licenses are applied by the
chancellor of the exchequer in the ex
pected manner and it is further
commented upon that American fi-j
nance is imitated without regard to
j the utterly different conditions pre-
I vailing here. In this country licens
ed premises already paid more than
the equivalent of American high li
| censes through the beer duty, which
is remorseless here and non-existent
In the United States.
Duty May Defeat Itself.
But however fallacious may be Mr.
Lloyd-George's theory, it is "not sc
paradoxical as his practice. Before
the end of the year, the Standard
thinks, Mr. Lloyd-George will prob-

will defeat itself, and that between
adulteration and abstinence his ex
pectations of revenue will be heavily
disappointed. It is difficult to be
lieve that the ministry expect to be
in office when the time comes for de
fraying the liabilities from so specu
lative an income. If it were their
intention to dissolve parliament at
mid-summer, and leave another gov
ernment to pay their bills, this is the
sort of a budget they would have
framed, for the next chancellor of the
exchequer will have but two alterna
tives, either he must go the full
length of socialism or turn for relief
to tariff reform.
RAIN YESTERDAY AT
(By Associated Press.)
Wtaerville. May 18—Rain fell over
the Big Bend around Waterville last
night and continued until noon. The
growing crop is greatly refreshed.
Resowed grain and late seeding are
now sure of germinating. Gardens
were especially helped.
Drenching rain fell Sunday in the
wheat belt north of Ephrata, and the
crop is looking fine. A soaking rain
fell yesterday at Ephrata. Early
sown wheat has been improved and
late sown incalculably benefited. The
stand is satisfactory and conditions
excellent. If the June rains come a
record yield is assured.
