CONGRESS 10 ADJOURN BT JEM OF WEEK Only Fifteen Dtmocratic Senators Still In Washlngton-They Will Not Assist La Follette If He Tries to Prolong Fight-Public Buildings Tied Up. Washington, May 28. Fifteen Dem ocratic Senators, all that now remain tn ihe city, conferred for one anJ a half hours today and agreed that they would gland together In opposition to the Aldrlch-Vreeland compromise currency bill. Many of them will speak against the bill, but there Is nothing to indicate that the opposl tinn will take the form of filibuster. The absence of such inclination is best illustrated by the prediction after conference that "Congrew probably will be able to adjourn tomorrow, ccr ninly not later than Sunday." This opinion was expressed by several Deinoi rats. No Aid for IwlVllctte. Lar'nlb tre's position was also con sidered and the question arose as to whether it would be advisable to stand b him if he should be disposed to prolong I lie figh. against the adoption of the conrerenre report on the bill The disvusslon did not re sui; In a decision, but sentiment ap peared ig.ilns.t that course. Most ot the Democrats seemed to believe that from a political standpoint It will be htt for the Democrats to register only I lo ir objection and vote against the' bill. The Senators present at the conference were: Culberson, Teller, Bacon, liankhead, Johnstone, Sim mons, clay, Gary, Taylor. Overman, Frazler. Newlands, Owen, Gore and McLaurin. The Democrats believe that If they fro on record strongly against the cur rency bill, both by their vote and speeches, they will have enough cam paign thunder to go home with, and as most of them are onxlous for ad journment, it Is not likely they will report to filibustering. It If generally believed here that Congress will adjourn tomorrow or Saturday at the litest. F.ve-y effort is being made by th Republicans to Tush the measure slated for passage and to dispose of all the work possible without further loss of time.

DEMOS mflUME SEER UllUCt iiiitii urn iiiniriir I ENEMY Reported That Conference Be tween King Edward and President May Result In Combine. FRENCH PRESS GIVES REPORT FULL CREDENCE Temps Contains Long Article Dis cussing Advisability of Arrangement-Demands That Army be Ke-organlzed -Prefers England to Germany. Tarls, May 28. The speeches ex changed in London between President Fallit-ries and King Edward have at tracted much attention In the French press. The Palis Tempi say that it considers the time to be ripe' for the substitution of an Anglo-French alli ance Instead of the present entente; provided that the British army be radically reorganized in order to ren der it capable of energetic action on the continent. Otherwise, the paper says, thu benefits of the alliance would be one-aided and In favor of Knglund and consequently Inadvisa ble.

Pi-clci-s Knglund to Germany. "Forced to choose between Ger many and Great Britain," the Temps says, "France chooses Great Britain. We can with dignity lie on correct terms with Gonnany, but the -pai-t forbids us going further. As for the future, Germany only wants what we cannot grant, namely, the admission of German funds to the Paris bourse, On the other hand, the greatest ob jection to a British alliance has dis appeared with the reconciliation of our ally, Russia, with Great Britain. From the F.nglish standpoint this al liance is desirable. Kngland, through out its history, always has felt the ne cessity of a commercial alliance and continental support. The French army would be of inestimable value to Great Britain In the event of war, but would British support bo equally advantag eous to us?"
