SOUTH HAY. CONTROL
Caucus and Cloture to Be
Programme in Senate.
NORTH FAR OUTNUMBERED
President's Leanings Said to Be Fea
ture in Probable Plan and Ma
jority Would Even Permit of
Losing Insurgent Votes.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash.,
Nov. 6. The South, not content with
dominating the, House of Representa
tives, is laying plans deliberately to
grab control of the United States Sen
ate, and thus make its dominance in
Congress complete. This it proposes to
accomplish through the instrumentality
of the Democratic caucus and a clo
ture rule. If the plans of the Southern
brigadiers go through, as they may at
the coming session, the South will be
in the saddle, and the rest of the coun
try will be forced to bow down to
Southern domination at both ends of
the Capitol. With a President' who is
Southern born, and whose sympathies
are strongly Southern, the entire gov
ernment will thus be in the grasp of
Already the South dominates the
House of Representatives, through
holding all but one of the important
committee chairmanships in the lower
branch of Congress. Committees, as is
well known in Washington, are domi
nated by their chairmen especially
House committees and because of
their strangle-hold on , the House or
ganization, the Southern leaders are
in position to run things their own
way always with the sanction, and
approval of the "captain of the team."
South Han Party Majority.
In the new Senate, more strongly
Democratic than before, the South has
it in its power to assume control.
The South will have 31 Democratic
members of the next Senate; ' the re
mainder of the Democratic member
ship'. 25. hail from the North and West.
Outnumbering the other sections by
six, the South will therefore be able to
dominate the Democratic caucus, and
the activity of Southern Democratic
Senators, even in advance of the con
vening of Congress, shows that the
South intends to "come into its own."
Tin South, in so many words, intends
tc enforce the caucus gag at the com
ing session, whenever and wherever
possible, and to bind the Democratic
majority to support caucus action.
There is some Democratic opposition
to caucus rule, but the opposition
comes from Senators who do not hail
from the South. Therefore, this oppo
sition is negligible, especially in view
of the fact that the Democratic ma
jority of the Senate is now big enough
to carry through caucus plans, even
though six or seven, or eight insurgent
Democrats refuse to be bound by cau
Cloture Role Proposed.
After adopting the caucus gag, and
compelling Northern Democrats to
submit to the dictates of the 31 Demo
cratic Senators from the South, it is
proposed to adopt a cloture rule, in
order that the decrees of the caucus
may be put through the Senate by
Democratic votes, without having their
programme endangered by filibusters.
There is just one way by which the
South may be prevented from carrying
through its adroitly planned scheme;
that is by defeating the proposed clo
ture rule, and giving to the Senate its
right of unlimited debate. Once the
South becomes master, the following
Senators become the effective force in

the Federal grand jury by Commis

that the two men had stolen original

Zapata captured the city of Mexico.
By means of alleged Spanish passports,
Arriola testified, the defendants
smuggled the plates or lithograph
stones across the United States border.
In his attempts to secure evidence
against the men. Arriola conducted a
printing establishment, where, he said,
Leungo and A.-ivau arranged to have
about $15,000,000 in counterfeit Mexi

was said, did not know that Arriola
was a Mexican government agent until
he testified against Iheru on the stand.

On the other hand, there is develop
ing a considerable sentiment in favor
of the creation of a large Continental
Army, such as the President will
recommend, and it is becoming ap
parent that there may be serious con
flict of interest between the Militia on
the one hand and a Continental Army
on the other. Both are to be voluntary
orgainzatlons; both are designed to
give military training to young men
who care to enlist; both are to be in
structed by officers of the Regular
Army, and . both are intended to con
stitute a "citizen soldiery." to be at the
call of the President in time of war
The main difference between the
Militia and -the Continental Army, as
the plans now stand, la that the Militia
will, receive its training largely in
armories, with an annual encampment
of ten days, whereas the Continental
Army -will instruct-its members in the
field two months a year for three years
and then turn them into the reserve.
There is a growing fear among of
ficers of the Militia that -the Conti
nental Army may be developed to such
a point as to draw many members from
the Militia, and render it difficult to
maintain that volunteer force. And
among some .officers there -is a dispo
sition, to frown, on the Continental
Army idea, in the hope of inducing Con
gress to provide solely for the upbuild
ing of the Militia, making it the only
citizen force in the United States.
Advocates of. tne Continental Army
contend that there Is no prospect of rehabilitating-
the National - G-uard in
those states, and that only by organiz
ing a' Continental Army can efficient
companies and regiments be built up
in states where the National Guard has
