LONDON, Jan. 14. Tho decision deft-
tattely to break up the peace conference
In London slmultiiheously with tho pree
'ehtation to tho Turkish government of
jthe note of European powers was reached
today by the chiefs of tho peace deldga
jtions of tho Balkan allies.
Tho resolution of the representatives of
jRulgario, Oreoce, Montenegro and Servla
wJH be communicated to the porta In a
The 'threatening note of the allies to
,the Turks Is to be worded in such, a way
that it will become effective only In tha
pvent of the Ottoman government refus
ing compliance with the advice given to
it by th ambassadors ot the European
Poircn' Note Colorleaa.
The members ot the Balkan league are
of tho opinion that the note drafted by
the European diplomats Is so diluted
that It requires the admixture of a
vitalizing tonic and this, they think, will
toe supplied by their threat to continue-
At the same time It was decided to In
struct .the commanders of the armed
forces of the allies, in the field to termi
nate tho armistice which has been In
operation since December 3.
Since that date, hostilities between Bui
'garla and Servla on the one side and
Turkey on tho other have entirely ceased.
Greece, wh'ich did not sign the armistice
protbeal, however, has continued fight
ing against Turkey, both on sea and
land,,with varying success.
Montenegro, also which was nominally
a party to tho armistice, has been en
gaged in tho Interim in many severe
8klrmlshcs with the troops forming tbe
garrison of the Turkish fortress of
Bcutari, which shows no sign of yielding.
It is believed that . Ottoman troops there,
lmost o whom form port of the regular
army..ar fairly well provided with food
and ammunition, as Scutari was always
la great center of the .grain trade, and the
'Turkshare a. considerable arsenal there.
Many FigRta nt Jnnlna.
; Janlna, in the south of Kplrus, was the
it-allying point for a largo force of Turk-
fish troops who escaptJ from Monastlr
,jnd other places 'in Macedonia and Al
' Ibanla. The Oreeks have clewed all ap
roroacbes to the fortress from the south,
(but to the north and west the communl-
(options are still open and tho Turks there
'are able to obtain supplies.
Conflicting reports as to conditions In
the great fortress of Adrlanople are cur
ent, but It appears evident that the Turk
ish troops and Inhabitants of the city
are suffering from disease and lack ct
supplies. They have been besieged over
since the last week of October by the
Bulgarians who have since been rein
forced by large bodies of Servians fresh
from their victories on the other side of
"the Balkan peninsula.
Great Army ut Tchalajn.
Before the Tchalaja lines defending
Constantinople there is a great army of
'Bulgarians, who are strongly entrenched,
(and , fronting them are large bodies of
Turkish troops, some of them the reiti
jnants of the defeated armies which fled
before the advance from tho Bulgarians
jand others fresh troops brought up from
the Turkish provinces. of Asia Minor.
The funds in the Ottoman treasury are
Insufficient to meet the coupons of the
(Turkish 5 per cent loan of 1806, which is
'due today, but tho Imperial Ottoman bank
has made arrangements to assure Its pay
ment) Tho loan amounted to JH.876,000
and the amount still outstanding as un
redeemed is $13,276,000.

O. Wade of St. Louts, a member of tho
bahking and currency committee of the
American Bankers' association, today be
fore the house currency reform commit
tee. Mr. Wade said tho so-cauea Aiaricn
plan proposed the best system that haJ

Chairman Glass said the democratic
party's declaration against tho Aldrtch

"You may be able to work that out,
tho witness replied, "but the Bystem will
not be sound without the central bank."
Mr. Wade Insisted democratic opposition
to a central bank was largely sentimental
and rocommended that the committee re
port a measure similar to tho Aldrlch bill.
"Whether it is sentiment or the ghost
of Andrew Jackson," replied Chairman
Glass, "there is an Insurmountable po
litical obstacle to tho Aldrlch plan."

James E. Ferguson, a banker of Temple

of tho currency "the currency bank of
the United States" with eight branch ja
to be known as "currency stations," and
authorize the Issue of $700,000,000 In cur

The plan contemplated tho loan of cur

With tho democratlcprogreBslve organi
