Can Force Extra Sessions. ■ » Opinions will vary as to the virtue of the filibuster against (lie anti-lynch Ing bill. It makes no difference, how ever, whether one approves or dlsup proves of the legislation, the point ts that senators who choose to talk and keep on talking can prevent the passage of any legislation, even if it has back of it nil Die weight of public . opinion. To put It In another way, an appro priation bill which every senator agrees should he enacted into law can be defeated by filibustering tactics ein ployed, not really for the purpose of killing the particular bill, but to force congress into an extra session because the bill failed. No one in Washington believes that the senate ever will adopt a rule which will make It possible to shut off debate as It can be shut o(T in the house of representatives. No one here believes that a rule to this effect can be adopted because of the simple' fact timt all such rules have failed The senate , Pho Iyer antl-lynelilng hill having been blocked, the senate Is confronted with the necessity of passing coni paratively few measures.

Couid Win if Allowed to Vote. Administration leader« ln Die sen ate say that if Die subsidy l*ill shall be allowed to come to a vote, it wilt be passed by a small majority. In fact, a poll of Die senate made by Die majority leaders shows that a suffi- , eient number of Republican und Dem ; I i sidy measure say the country does not law and therefore any tactics intended to pie vent Its coining to a vote are justiti from Ocra tic senators will vote f»r the bill 'to put It through—but are they to be given a chance to vote for it? Naturally Die opponent« of Die suh . want to have it enacted int able. The proponents of the measure say the country does want legislation, and that filibustering tactics against its passage are unjustifiable if not wicked.
