Preeldont Wilson's second note, to tho allied Pre miers concerning the Adriatic dispute Is being prepared and 'probably will be cabled to-morrow evening:. Thero was every Indication to-day that the Premiers, confronted with tho President's first note disapproving their course, and his threat to with draw the treaty, had' put it up'.to the President to suggest some other solu tion than that which they embodied in their ultimatum to the Jugo-Slavs. This ultimatum .has been, extended from time to time, but to it the. Allies till stand committed. Before rescind ing it the Allies apparently wont to eee what the President has to propose In its stead in view of the Italian re jection of the Joint memorandum of December 9. Just how far the Allies have gone In discussing the relation of this Govern ment toward European affairs, brought up by the President himself in hlsj threat to withdraw, the treaty, has not teen disclosed. Upon this point. In volvlng not only as it does the-Adrlatlc question but the Turkish problem. In terest In the Senate now Is focussed. Dictates for an Hour.

After spending all reiterday afternoon turning over In his tnmd the reply of Premiere JJbyd George. JIUlerand and Nlttl he sent for his confi dential stenographer at $ :30 o'clock this morning and spent more than an hour In Ma study dlctattng what appears to have been a rough draft of his reply. It then was carried .over to the State Department, where It engrossed the at tention of Frank Polk, acting Secretary of State, who. It Is understood, was called upon by the President to supply certain technical details which the President lacked. It was evident from what went on to day that unusual care Is being taken In the preparation of this note, and the finished draft yet awaits the President' approval It probably will be despatched to-morrow evening. There Is now no question that .this 'hole correspondence; momentous in its nature as revealing Mr. Wilson's present conception of our foreign relations and ue allied dilemma, will be given to the world In Its entirety within the next few days. The President was reported tc-cay merely to be awaiting the "receipt by the allied Governments of the note he Is now preparing before -jnaklng all f the notes public.

President Wilson, demonstrating to-doY ever before during, his Illness that ho ls.bitCjPat work, apparently has not yet rencneu the point t where It Is considered wlso for him to meet with his Cabinet.
