Feb. 13.-Lloyd-George during his speech In the Commons said: "Great Britain was to give up her coaling stations throughout the world. J confbss that was the last demand flermany ought decently to have put forward. Treated Germans Right These coaling stations had been ac-cessablo to Germany as well as to British ships. In the past the German fleet always has received most hospitable treatment at all these stations. During 1913 some 63 visits wore paid to them by German warships and they received exactly the same facilities as British warships. The same thing applied to German merchantmen. There were German coaling firms there conducting trade under exactly the same conditions as British firms. "To make such a denmnd for the first time In Ui.e fourth year ot the war Is the bes't'possible proof that the German Empire' or'those at preacit controlling'It Is not In a mood^to discuss reasonable terms of peace.

There was room for Improvemtiit in the docks but they were t)loai>eii with the general situation. To Winnipeg the line was In "average good cimdliion." hut some Improvements were nccossary. With tho rest of the main line to Vancouver they wepo agreoahly surprised. Returning, some ot tho branches wore visited. The Goose i^ake line was In poor condition after :!0 days' rain. Thougl It caused discomfort to ride over It- "the joints were low and tho tracks out of allgnmnnt"- it could be put In good shape at Ip.s..; than $300 a mile. "During the 12 years 1903-1914," he said, "the growth of the C. N. R. av-eraged more than 300 miles a year. 'The fact that is most apparent Is that 47 per cent, ot the mileage ot the G. N.
