BENT ON CURRENCY MEASURE Many Republican Members. Anxious to Arrange Some Compromise. Washington, May 25. The postponement of the final adjournment of Congress has had the effect of causing a renewal of the efforts to bring about an understanding between the two houses on the currency uuestion. Many Republican members of the House do not seek to disguise their fear that if Congress should adjourn without passing an emergency curren7 hill the failure to take action would be disaster-ous to the majority.

His action holds the buildings bill, in which 316 members of the House and many senators are interested, over the heads of "any recalcitrant group or action." that may be opposed to an agreement on emergency currency.

KING MANUE HAS NO CASH Can Get None Until King Carlos' Irregularities Are Adjusted. Lisbon, May 25. The Royal household of Portugal is being besieged by its creditors, and the newspaper of Lisbon are filled with the 'notices of suits brought by tradespeople against its members. The courts already have awarded a butcher $210 and costs, the amount of an unpaid meat bill against Dowager Queen Maria Pia and the Duke of Oporto. This situation arises from the fact that the members of the royal household have not received a single penny from the state since King Carlos and hi son were assassinated, because the new civil list cannot be approved until after the financial accounting of the reign of the late King Carlos is completed. This is held up by threatened revelations from Senhor Carvalho, who was minister of finance under ett-Premier Franco, regarding money which went to members of the present government.
