Adoption of British Budget Re garded as Certain. i SUMMARY OF PEACE PROPOSALS. iBoers Accept British Lord Commis sioner , With a Burgher Executive. ' England's Reserves Veto Right No War Tax Shall Be Levied on Boers. London , April 15. Not for many ycnrs 1ms Great Britain's fiscal pro- , Km in been awaited with such Interest as that which attached to this year's announcement and there Is no doubt that all the proposals contained In the budget given out yesterday by Sir Michael Hicks-Beach , the chancellor of the exchequer , will bo adopted. It Is equally certain , however , that none of the proposals will meet with the unanimous approval of either side of the house. Moro Important , perhaps , than the curious forms of the new taxation Is the statement , made by the chancellor of the exchequer , that the government had acceded to the Boer demand concerning the restocking ing of farms. The Associated Press learned upon excellent authority that the principal provision of the budget , namely , the treasury loan of 32,000,000 , has a se rious bearing upon the peace question. There appears to bo a very strong be lief in the cabinet that owing to ex pected early termination of the of the budget gets to the committee stage , the peace negotiations will have Teached a stage that Sir Michael IlicUs-Bcach will bo enabled to an nounce a decrease of the loan. The failure to explain this Import ant point is taken In the house of commons to indicate that the govern ment has strong hopes of a speedy issue of the negotiations now progress ing at Pretoria between the Boer lead- ers. V ers.Sir Michael Hicks-Beach Is seldom dramatic , but when he referred to the government's intention to restock the Boer as well as the colonial farms , his voice rose to an eloquent pitch. His gesture as he spoke in praise of the valor of the Boers and expressed his hopes for subsequent friendship be tween Briton and Boer took the house with him , and the cheers , especially from the opposition , prevented the speaker from continuing his speech for some moments. During this pause the chancellor of the exchequer turned towards Mr. Chamberlain , the colonial eecretary , who sat pale and motion less , plainly none too pleased at this official recantation of his "uncondi tional surrender" formula. After mentioning that he did not propose to interfere with beer , wine , tea and sugar , the chancellor said he must select for indirect taxation an article practically in universal con sumption. He , therefore , proposed an import duty of 3 pence per hundred weight on all grain , with a correlative Vluty of 5 pence per hundred weight on flour and meal. The total yield of this duty was estimated nt 2,050,000. In the house of commons the general 'debate on the budget followed party lines. The house divided on the corn and flour duties resolution , which was adopted , 254 to. 153. The conservative papers highly ap prove the corn duties and deny that they constitute an Infringement of the traditional free trade policy. The liberal papers condemn the corn duties vigorously.

Brussels , April 15.- The day passed hero In perfect tranquillity. Several meetings , were held In the suburbs during the evening. M. Vadorvoldo and other socialist loaders ntado violent lent speeches , but order wn main tained.
