The conditions were these: " First The German government to have the distribution of the Silesian coal, or be allotted 1,500, 000 tons monthly for northern Ger many instead of the present allot ment of 1,200,000 tons. Second A mixed commission to be sent to Essen to examine food and housing conditions. - Third The allies are asked to advance money or provide credit for importing additional food for the entire German population, , Acceptable to Allies?

In a personal letter to Premier Lloyd George, the foreign minister, it is understood, asked Premiers Lloyd George and Millerand, to help Germany to fulfill her obliga tions by doing three things: First By allowing Germany to cash difference between the price of coal at the pit mouth in Germany and the price of coal on the world's market Second By making a generous1 arrangement with, regard to ship ping. Third By giving Germany some security or assurance against the menace of invasion if she should at any time be a little behind in ber deliveries.

Its crude meth ods, its awkward- and clumsy ef forts to give expression to every conceivable phase of popular dis content, Its severe denunciation of the two old parties is natural in such a hedge pedge of minority ele ments, but the entire lack of po litical sense in the gathering or consciousness of team-play by which alone a party can make head way is a sad commentary on the liberalism which is supposed to be finding an outlet here. Dozens of delegates talking at once, respect neither for the gavel of the chairman nor the fact that a delegate may have been accorded the privilege of speaking, intoler ance if the views of a delegate seeming contrary to the wish of the mass all this may be defended on the ground that the third party is suffering the throes of infancy but it impressed many on onlooker with the truism that the place to fight for reform is inside the two old parties, after all, rather than out side of them.
