The Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, Jan. 17. The tight for cloture In the I'nited States senate, which In to feature the opening of the next, or Sixty-fifth congress, already r s begun. The opening gun has been fired by Senator Thomas J. Walsh of Montana who is recognized as one of the ablest fighters in the senate. The senator from Montana arose in the senate a day or two ago and intro duced a icsolution which has attracted practically no attention because its purport has not been fathomed? His resolution (senate resolution 313 > is as follows: "Resolved. That it is the sense of the senate that the present session will, without any action on the part of this body and without action or .con currence of the house of representa tives. terminate at 12 o'clock meridian » March 4. 11» 17." The resolution was read and re ferred without comment to the com mittee on the judiciary, of which Sen ator Walsh is a member. In the absence of any official ex planation of his resolution bv Senator Walsh the construction put upon it by ell-informed persons is that it lays the ground-work for a more deter mined fight than ever has been made heretofore to force a cloture provision into the rules of the United States senate, to the end that a majority of the senate shall be enabled at all times to do business and that (filibusters en gineered by one obstreperous member, or a small minority, shall no longer be possible. The Walsh resolution fits in with the contention of the advocates of cloture, namely that when a new congress is to be organized it is perfectly competent for the senate to adopt a new set of rules. The adoption of a new set of rtrtes would enable the senate to vote on a rule providing for cloture It is contended by the opponents of cloture that the United States senate, theoretically speaking. Is always in session: that the senate does not die when a congress expires but that it goes on forever and that tts* rules, by the same token, also go on forever. As the rules do not provide for cloture In any sense or degree the advocates of that reform would "stand a fat chance,'' »peaking in the vernacular, to bring about cloture under the con tention of the ''antis'' that the sonnte'» DOINGS of the duffs A MIDNIGHT CALLER.

Most soaps and prepared shampoos contain too much alkali, which is very injurious, as it dries tin* sculp and makes the hair brittle. The liest thing to use is just plain mulsified cocoanut oil, for this is pure and entirely greaseless. It's very cheap and beats the most expensive soaps or anything else all to pieces. You can get this at any drug store, and a few ounces will last the whole family for months. Simply moisten the hair with water and rub it in. about a teaspoonful is I all that is required. It makes an ! abundance of rich, creamy leather, j cleanses thoroughly and rinses out I easily. The hair dries quickly and ! evenly, and is soft, fresh looking, 1 bright, fluffy* wavy and easy to handle. I Besides, it loosens and takes out every I particle of dust, dirt and dandruff. Superintendent Votaw Says the Railway Congestion is Be ing Cleared Up.

K. Votaw. the division superintend ent at the Power city, who is spending the day in Butte attending to business affairs. He arrived this morning from Billings and will go to Great Fall this evening. Mr. Votaw said: "The congestion, resulting from ihe shortage of railway cars and from the big demands for freight movement during the early part of the winter and the last part of th*.* fall, is I »eilig cleared up. There is not so much freight movement now as there was some weeks ago. and we are in a posi tion to relieve the congestion in yards which was the worst in many years. The weather has been very severe in northern Montana and practically all along the division." SECOND TRIM ANKLE LURES "BLIND PETER'' Chicago. - Na light \ Remember Peter Potçr!

The Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, Jan. 17.—An interest ing resolution, intended to impress upon the public mind that there has been a great deal of absurdity con nected with the discovery of diplo matic "leaks" and their effect on the stock market, has been introduced in the house of representatives by Rep. William Kent of California. Kent was first an insurgent and is now listed as an independent member of congress, belonging to no party. He never be fore was accused of being much of a humorist. His resolution, house reso lution No. 436. has met with such a heavy demand that the entire printed supply is exhausted. The full text is as follows: "Whereas, There lias been undue and unnecessary friction between the J correlative branches of government lo- ! cated, respectively, in Wall Street, I New York, and Washington, D. and "Whereas, The Washington branch held the opinion that peace was to the advantage of the nation and the world, whereas Wall street mon largely profited by a state of war; and "Whereas. The president of the United States, in ignorance or heed lessness of Wall street interests, did humbly ask the nations at war wheth er in their respective views it might not be well to consider the possibility of desisting from slaughter; and Whereas, it has been alleged that the rumor of such diabolical question ing reached some of the speculators of Wall street before it reached others to the result of inequality of profit among said speculators; now. there fore, be It "Resolved, That all rumors of such leakage of information be pursued t< their lairs and that the rules commit tec of the house examine all brokers newspapers, ticker tapes, secretaries, stenographers, members of the house and senate and all sources of news, rumors and lies, including all liars, ancient, modern and pre-historic; and lie it further "Resolved.
