Proposals to Invoke the cl?ture
rule for the purpose of shutting
off debate on th.? treaty and bring

a final vote found considerable ?up
port among Senators yesterday.
Two distinct proposal? of cl?ture
were made, one by Senator Under

the other hy Senator? KHlogg and
Hale. Republicans. It was said that
thirty-five Democrat? were willing
to sign up for cl?ture and that al
most us many Republicans would
make a similar agreement.
Under the rules, sixteen Senator?
may present the bcopoaaj o." cl?ture
to tb? Senate, bat the vote of two
third* it ne-ces-sary to put it Ibfeece.
Senator l>odge. the Republican leader.
said that although he had not been
approached with any proposal for
limiting debate, lie did no. doubt that
there would be enough vote? to in
'voke the cl?ture rule if it should be I
presented to the Senate.
Tbe movement to insiiluie the rule ;
for limited debate wa? bro-iuht about ?
by the fear that a filibuster wa? to >
