LONDON. April 10 The budget which
Andrew Bonar Law, Chancellor of the
Excheauer. will present In the House
of Commons Monday will be the highest
financial bill that Parliament has yet
had to conaider.
Forecasts by financial writers give
the estimated expenditure for the fiscal
year, which began April 1, at,
The estimated revenue on the pres
ent scale of taxation Is 750,000,000
which would result in a deficit of
2,260,000,000, to be covered by war
loans and Increased taxation.
The country la prepared to accept
greatly Increased taxes and expects th
government to propose to raise at leas
1100,000,000 and perhaps even double
thst amount thereby.
The principal Innovation expected
a tax on luxuries, similar to that in
France. Expensive clothing, jewelry
and art objecta are likely to be in
eluded In this scheme. London is the
world's center for art auctions, and
there is a demand for a toll on auction
The income tax has long been the
backbone of the British treasury; It
has been found to be the most even
and easily collected of all imposts.
Hence, the chancellor will naturally
give another turn of the screw there.
'i a present flat rate Is five shillings
In the pound. It Is expected that thl
will be increased to six shillings eight
pence, while the supertax which now
is payable on Incomes of f 3000 will be
extended to those of 2000.
No Increase in the excess profits tax
Is expected. It Is at present 80 per
An increase In the tax on tobacco,
which Is already heavily taxed, while
importations have been checked and
stocks are decreasing, is not predicted.
Cigars, however, may be listed as lux
urles in the new schedule.
There Is talk of a change In the
method of imposing the income tax
on farmers. The tax heretofore has
been assessed on the basis of farm
rentals Instead of profits.

Local Federal Officers Ready to Act
When Definite Instructions Are
Received From Waahlngton.
Federal officials here are awaiting
definite instructions from Washington
to proceed with the registration of
women alien enemies required under
the law enacted by Congress last week
and approved by the President. Be
fore the provisions of the measure can
be carried, out the President must first
Issue a proclamation. When this has
been done the Attorney-General will
prescribe the general rules under
which the registration shall be made
and forward the same -to the United
States Marshal in each state.
As the law is interpreted here, it
applies to all women alien enemies.
In the registration of alien enemy
malea several weeks ago, however, only
unnaturalized Germans 14 years old
and over were required to register.
Subjeots of Austria-Hungary, although
alien enemies, were exempted from
registering. It Is considered likely
that the registration of women alien
enemies may also be confined to women
of German birth.
Another important point to be de
termined Is by whom the registration
of these women will be made. The
registration of males was done under
the supervision of the chief of police
in cities of 5000 and over. In all other
communities the work was superin
tended by the postmasters.
