"I was much impressed and gratified at
trie wsrmth of the public reception given
to the queen and myself by all classes nf
the community." he said. "It afforded me
grest plaaure to mit the emperor nf
Germany and the empress again and I
feel confident that the expressions of c.or-
llal welcome with which we were greeted
in Berlin will tend to strengthen these
amicable feelings between the two coun
tries that are cssrntisl to their mutual
welfare and the maintenance of peace. '
Immediately after the usual reference
to the continued friendliness of the foreign
relations of Great Britain, the king spoke
of the waterways snd fisheries sgrcements
with Amenta. "Smisfactory progress has
been made." he said, "in the negotiations
on outstanding; quest ons with the United
Slates. A treaty to regulate use of water
ways aii;acenl to the nternutional boun
dary between Canada and the V uited Stairs

After mentioning the continued anxiety
concerning the situation in Persia and
the "imperialistic demand" for the Intro,
duction of representative Institutions In

"T am happy to think that there is now
an Improved prospect for a solution of the
