HE WILL STTPPOET THE MEASURE
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10. After a
tifty-four-hour continuous session on
the government ship purchase bill,
the senate adjourned a 6:11 o'clock
tonight on i motion of Senator O'Gor
man, one of the Insurgent democrats.
The Tote on the motion was 48 to
46, Senators Norrls and Kenyon and j
the Insurgent democrats supporting i
the motion. j
Senator Norrls told the senate that
be believed no vote could be reached
by March 4, and urged that other
legislation be undertaken.
The confluent belief that the , filibuster
against th bill oould be continued un
til March 4, and that It would be Impos
sible to paaa the measure before the ex
piration of this congreaa wu given by
Senator Korrla' aa hia peaaon for voting
to break th long grind.
"I am not finding fault with aer.ate.ia, '
he- aald.' "fop doing what, under the
rule they have a perfect right to do.
But these filibuster are Increasing. It
li unfortunate that we cannot ' decide
any great Issue without a teat of physi
cal strength. It Is a relic of bar barium.
Both sides of the senate have conducted
filibusters, and If -the situation were to
change tonight .. the democratic side
would begin filibuster on this very

"We stay here night after night," he
aid,' "and are dragged out of our beds
to answer roll call when there are three
or four senators In the chamber. 'It Is
ludicrous. It la foolish, except that the
consequence are sometimes serious arid
the practice la engaged in by serious
men. This flood of talk haa no object
but to kill time, and kill tha members.
I don't know what day of the month It
Is or what day of the week It is. ; But
I know It la February and It will soon,
be March 1. You know and I know and
God knows that with about one-half of
the member of, the 'senate determined!1
to eontlnuo' thl filibuster they can ah-1

favored the ship, purchase bill he ccUd

"I understand that It baa been an

Norrls' continued, "that if this bill la
not paesed there will be a special session
of congress soon after .March, 4. I as
sume that thla to true. If this filibuster
continues until March 4. we would have
to have an extra session any way, to
pasa the appropriation bills. Bo there is
nothing to be gained by continuing this
fight and nothing to be' lost.
"When the . special session comes, aa

The action of the senate opens up the
possibility of a feud between the two

the lower house was ao strong for the
measure. The bill puts -out of the run

Majors of Peru and Dan Morris of Kear

the board shall be from a county la
