EIDES OPENING CUN
IN SENATE FIGHT
Senator Walsh Introduces Res
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
"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
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'»

proponents of cloture wifi be fortified
with an argument for the adoption of
a new set of senate rules when the
next congress convenes, either in extra
session in the coming spring or in
regular session next December.

DON'T LET SOAP
SPOIL YOUR HAIR
When you wash your hair, be care
ful what you use. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too much
alkali, which is very injurious, as it
dries tin* sculp and makes the hair
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,

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.
While weather conditions in tin

general situation in regard to rail

is considerably improved, a«-cording t*

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."

Kent, in Facetious Mood,
troduces Resolution in
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
"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.
"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;
"Whereas. The president of the
United States, in ignorance or heed
lessness of Wall street interests, did
humbly ask the nations at war wheth

not be well to consider the possibility
of desisting from slaughter; and
Whereas, it has been alleged that
the rumor of such diabolical question
