London, Feb. 11.—Serious consideration of economic conditions throughout the. country was urged upon the house of commons by. King George in his speech from the throne, which opened the session of parliament. _ Especial interest was attached to the kings allusion to the Russian situation as he spoke only of the desirability of peace in that country. Not until normal conditions of life were restored there and in eastern Europo, he said, could the full blessings of peace and prosperity be assured' to Europe. The session opened, at noon, the king Immediately beginning his speech. ' He counseled patience in the passage of far reaching reforms, which, he said, were necessary to meet abnormal conditions. He urged better educational facilities, settlement of the Irish question, adjustment of coal mining controversies on an enduring basis, regulation of the liquor traffic and measures stimulating the growth of more-foodstuffs at home. He said bills would be introduced in parliament dealing with insurance against unemployment, regulation of working hours, minimum wages and antidumping. Will Seek Irish Solution. "The condition of Irelaud causes me" grave concern, but a bill will be im-' mediately laid before you to give effect to the proposals for a better government of that country, which was outlined at the end of the last session of parliament. 1 . A bill to make further provision for education in Ireland, will also be submitted. -Absence of facilities for education for a considerable part of the child population of certain distHcts makes the question one of urgency, but care will be taken to make the measure compatible with the home rule bill." Refers to "Peace in Russia." After briefly referring to the'peace conference the king said he intended shortly to ratify peace with Bulgaria and Austria. The negotiations for peace 'with Turkey, he added, were "being pressed forward with all possible speed." Referring to the recent conferences in Paris and London he said: "I earnestly-trust that as the result of these meetings a'settlement of the long continued Adriatic dispute will shortly be reached. In order, however, to assure the full blessings of peace and prosperity to Europe It Is essential that not only peace, but normal conditions of life, should be restored in eastern Europe and in Russia. So long as these vast regions withhold their full contribution to the stock of commodities for general consumption, the cost of living can hardly be re^ duced or general'prosperity be restored to the world." London witnessed for the-first time since 1914 the ancient ceremony of a state opening of parliament, with all its traditional pageantry.

' •" '•• ' The efforts of the senators in this classification are chiefly directed at the Lodge^ reservation on Article X and the Leuroot reservation on the equality of voting in the league.
