THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1917
(Special cnrrcspnmleiire ( The (iamifn J
Washington, 1). C, Jan. (Spec
ial:) An innocent looking resolu
tion submitted to tlie Senate by
Senator Walsh, of Montana, lias
been found, on examination, to
have teeth in it and, if adopted,
it will be the opening wedge for the
adoption of a cloture rule in the
The resolution, which was sub
mitted on Jan. 11th, is as follows:
" Resolved, that it is the sense of
the Senate that the present session
will, without any action on the part
of the body and without action or
concurrence of the House; of Repre
sentatives, terminate at twelve o'
clock meridian on March fourth,
nineteen hundred and seventeen."
Under present rules and practice,
I'liate is a continuing body,
and any change in its rules can lie
affected only by a two-thirds vote
of its membership.
Should the resolution be adopted,
the present Senate would terminate
its existence on March 4th, and
the next Senate would be an entire
ly new and not a continuing or
ganization. As a new organization, the Sen
ate could adopt rules by a majority
vote, ami in this way adopt a clot
ure rule which has been found im
possible under the two-thirds re
quirement. Commenting upon the signifi
cance of the resolution, the Washing
ton I'ost points out that the radicals
in the House are clamoring for less
restrictions upon debate, while the
redicals in the Senate are urging
the cloture rule so as to impose re
strictions. The Tost says:
"The Senate radicals want a clo
ture rule. They desire to limit tie
bate oh the floor of the Senate.
They say the present system of per
mitting unlimited debate is undem
ocratic and that it leads to a great
waste of time; that it has often re
sulted in killing measures which a
majority of the Senate desired by
permitting a filibuster to the end of
The first move toward a cloture
is the proposal that without action
on its own part the Senate be dis
solved at 12 o'clock meridian' March
4. This would mean Hint with the
beginning of each new Congress a
new set of rules would have to be
adonted in the Senate. Only a
majority would be needed to adopt j

If the radicals of the two lirancn-
es should be successful m their cf-,
forts, the importance oi the enaie j
would lie sunominaiea to inai oi

DOING TQ JAPAN
(Special Correppnn.lence of The Gardkx
Washington, D C., Jan. 12th: The
Federal Reserve Hoard's "warning"
to the United States banks, regard
ing shortterin notes, hns resulted in
turning that class of business to
Japan. The Monstary Times, of
Canada, says that the British and
French governments, after t h e
warning was issued, agreed not to
sell in the United States securities
to which the Ixiard took objection.
The governments turned to Japan
The Japanese Government i n
July last provided the British trea
sury with $")0,(XX),000, secured on
treasury bills. Jin the present tran
saction the Japanese public is pro
viding the fund. A syndicate of
liS Japanese banks, headed by Yo
kohama Specie Bank, was formed
under the auspices of the Japanese
Government, which offered its ser
vices as an intermediary between
the British Government and the
Japanese Syndicate. Only one ex
change of view between governor of
the Bank of England and financial
commissioner of the Japanese
Government in London sufficed to
conclude the arrangement.
The Japanese syndicate asked no
collateral, and undertook the issue
simply for the actual costs. As
neither the syndicate nor the pub
lic was in position to pay in dollars,
the Japanese Government, in co
operation with the Bank of Japan
and Yokohama Specie Bank, under
took to remit the whole proceeds,
for the British Government to A
merica, so that the British treasury
would be enabled to accomplish the
only aim it had by the issue.
