Midway News
On   Sunday ' the  4th   inst
death"occnrred of William Powers
at the Spokaue Hotel, Midway, in
his 57th year. The deceased gentleman was a native of Southampton,
England, and came to New York
when   14 years old.    In 1886 be
located at Vernon where he took
up a ranch.    Six   years later   he
moved to Midway and started the
first sawmill in the Boundary.    He
was  a successful   mill   man   and
during the  time he was* in  that
business operated  mills  at Grand
Forks,     Curlew,     Rock     Creek,
Beaverdell,    Carmi,    Nicholson
creek,   Midway,   Boundary   creek
and  Norwegian  creek.     He  had
been ill a long time and on Friday
previous to  hia death took a relapse and  sank into unconsciousness from which he never rallied.
At Midway in 1894 he married
Mies Lulu  Hopper-who survives,
him   and also leaves a daughter
Mrs. Chaa. Bubar of Beaverdell, to
mourn his Iosb.
He won the friendship of every
one he came in contact with and.
will  be sadly  missed by old and
The funeral took place from
Midway church on Tuesday 6th,
B. G. Gray officiating. The esteem
in which the deceased was held,
was attested by the great number
of friends~~who gathered to. pay7
their last respects.
"To live in the hearts of those,,
we leave behind is not to die.''
We haye known men who had
little sense of smell, and a girl to
whom sweet   aromas   made  no
appeal whatever,  but   she  died
young,   Such   men   miss   something of the terrors of the back
alley.-but the happiness iu  this
privilege is  their  bane  in the
orchards springtime.     Why   do
the orchards smell so sweet in
the   spring?   Some  argue  that
this sweetness is a ribbon of subconscious memory stretching from
blue to blue, from birth to death
and immortality.    These things
are too hard for us, but we do
know that  every flower  is the
promise of  immortality   to -the
plant to which it belongs, and
man*s craving to live always is
so persistent that all flowers are
beautiful   to  him.   Those  who
walked in the orchards last week
were with the Gods.   The scent
of the apple blossoms, the blending of the vast masses of pink
and white and green, the music
ofthe birds and bees,  all spoke
of  heaven.     The  man  in  the
orchard  who   could   open   bis
heart to thsse things and let his
thoughts and imagination run,
got a taste  of  glory that  will
soothe him throughout the year, '���

Tke Canadian Budget
During the Great War and in (ho years since, men responsible'for the
administration of national finances the world over have been confronted with
great difficulty in balancing thcir annual budgets. They have had to overcome obstacles of all kinds. War expenditures had resulted in piling up
national debts to unprecedented heights, the interest charges on which alone
called for enormous sums annually. Pensions, care of disabled soldiers, re-
cstablishinent of soldiers, call for further lnrge sums each year. During the
war years ordinary expenditures on capital account were discontinued, and
with the close of the war many services were round lo havo deteriorated and
called for large sums of money to make good the previous years' cnfoj'ced
Larger revenues had, therefore, (o bc obtained and there was only one
way to get the money���by increasing taxation. But taxation had to be imposed in such a way as to interef'ere as little as possible1 with business during
the dilticult period of re-adjustment from a war to a peace basis when the
whole world was engaged in the task of reconstruction, when hundreds of
thousands of people were ruined, and with unemployment of millions of men
and women. Governments only exist by will of the people, and it always
has to be recognized that there is a limit which any people will stand in the
matter of taxation.
Thc problem facing finance ministers has been to raise the larger revenues needed without at thc same time doing irreparable injury to the business interests of the country and (hereby, in the final analysis, creating an
even worse and, more difficulty situation.
British Chancellors of the Exchequer went further than those of other
countries in imposing heavy, even drastic, taxation. They proceeded to impose such taxation upon everybody," but more particularly upon the wealthier
classes. The result has been that, for some years past, Great Britain has
been steadily reducing its war debt, and in the last British budget it was
possible, owing to drastic cuts in national expenditures and as a result of
naval disarmament to a marked extent, to announce a beginning in reduction
of taxation. In the United States, too, there has been a reduction in the
national debt since the close of the war.
In Canada, on the other hand, the enormous debt created by the war,
instead of being reduced in the years since the Armistice, has gone on steadily increasing,. This has been due to the fact lhat the national revenues have
failed (o meet thc extraordinary charges for interest on the debt, pensions,
re-establishment of soldiers, and the heavy deficits on the national raihvays.
Tlie time had come when a halt had to be called to further increases in the
debt unless it was to become a monster which would Anally bring the Dominion to bankruptcy. Reduction in exnenditurcs had to be insisted upon,
and heavier taxation hud to be imposed, but imposed in such a way as not to
seriously interfere with business and the development of the country.
How W. S. Fielding in his first budget since again assuming the office of j which may be thought of as fore-
finance minister appears to have taken a leaf out of the books of British j shadowing the Gentiles* attitude to-
���ministers. Reductions in expenditure in many departments of government ward Christ. Though' Ebed-melech

Commons, notably in the militia and naval departments. The budget now man in Jerusalem. He was not only
announces the imposition of increased taxation. There'are certain reduc- sympathetic, but courageous. He went
tions in Customs duties, principally by way or increases in the British preferential tariff, and there is'a removal of a number of restrictions to trade which
should prove beneficial all round, but from a revenue standpoint these reductions are more than orfset by increased taxation in other ways. \
It is in the form of raising this additional revenue that Mr. Fielding is
following the example of British ministers. The much needed new revenue
is to come from heavier taxation on luxuries, and upon transactions carried
through by men and corporations of larger means and wealth. There are
increased taxes imposed on liquors, both intoxicating and known as soft
drinks, on the higher priced cigars and cigarettes, on automobiles, on bank
cheques, telegrams and cablegrams, on the note circulation of banks, and
through an increased sales tax. In other words, those people in the Domin- 'as he was lifted up'
ion who are best able to pay are to be required to do so.
0C\ course, there will be criticism from all these quarters, and already
associations representing this and that particular interest are demanding reconsideration by tlie Government, of this and that tax. It must be recognized, however, that the Federal Government must obtain larger revenues.
Canada dare not go on adding additional millions to the national debt every
rear. To do" so would be to commit national suicide, because it would not be
long before an ever-mounting debt would eat up the entire revenue in interest
charges alone.
That being the case, it follows that those who can afford to indulge ia
luxuries, or who are in "a position to issue large cheques where the average
man issues only small onej; or none at all, should be called upon to pay. It
is the system which has helped Great Britain through the hard years follow-
T.  Jeremiah Predicts  the' Capture of
Jerusalem (vy. 1-3).
1. To Whom���the People (v. 1).
Jeremiah had been taken out of the
prison by the king (37:17), and ordered confined to the court of the prison "(37:21). The people seem to
have had free access to him in the
court (32:12). From this place of
limited confinement Jeremiah announced to the people their approaching captivity.  .
2. Counsel Given (vv. 2, 3). (1) All
that remaineth in. the city shall die
by the sword, famine and pestilence.
(2) He that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live. "He shall have his
life for a prey" doubtless means Lhat
he shall escape with his life, though
losing all else.
11. Jeremiah Accused by the Princes
(vv. ���!, 5).
1. "He weakeneth the hands of the
men and all the people", (v. 4). From
a human standpoint what they said
was true, but since Jeremiah was but
the interpreter of God to the nation
thcy ought lb have, heeded his advice
to surrender.
2. "This man scekelh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt" (v.
���1). This charge was utterly false.
Jeremiah was the best friend of the
people, for he faithfully proclaimed
to them1'God's judgment upon them
for thcir sins and advised them how
to make the best of their unfortunate
3. The King's Cowardly Act (v. 5).
Jeremiah is abandoned by his cowardly friend. The very one whom Jeremiah was trying to help deserted him.
The king was afraid of thc Chaldeans,
the princes, Jeremiah and God.
IIL Jeremiah Cast Into thc Dungeon
(v. 6).
This was not a regular prison, but
a cistern which had doubtless been
emptied of its water during the siege,
leaving only "mire." Into" this mire
he sank. The purpose was to let
Jeremiah die there. There was no
possible way to escape. In this situation Jeremiah is a type of Christ
(Psalm 69). Jeremiah was one of
(.he bravest of God's servants.

' Postage Stamp
. The.-,smallest'gold coin In the world
has just been minted at Geneva Tor
the use of the League of Nations.
Though called &��� franc, it has nothing
in common with the familiar French
coin, being worth only about one
penny in;British money, Jt is octagonal in shape, and on one side aro
engraved the initials "S.D.N."���So*
ciete des Nations. So tiny is tho *
coin, however, that the letters can bo
read only by the aid of prpowerful
magnifying glass, while its weight -is
less than that of an ordinary postage
stamp. The gold franc is not intended for general circulation. It represents the unit of universal value in .
which the forthcoming bu'dget of the *
League of Nations is-to be calculated.
Its actual weight'is given officially'as
.03225805 of a' gramme. V     '
