WASHINGTN, Jim. 6 <AP»— Senator Tom Connally (Dem.. Tex.) today opened a bitter fight to kill the anil-lynching bill on grounds it is an "unconstitutional political gesture" and a "gratuitous insult to the southern states.' Connally's declaration was the opening blow In a battle by n bloc of IS southern senators, aided by Senator William E. Borah (Rep,, Idaho), same of them privately described the fight as nn undeclared filibuster. Charges Public Misled The Texan charged that the public had been misled In regard to the bill, that It "deliberately exempts from its operation gang murders In the great cities" and "encourages and accelerates the mad waves of crime in other sections." "It may wipe out the governmental and judicial systems of the 48 states," Connally declared. "We are against the destruction of the states. We are against the emasculation of state courts. Lynching has almost vanished. Qaiie murders—organized murders in the great cities and in many other sections—have Increased rapidly and defiantly. Political Gesture to Hurlcm "The south will stamp out lynching. The bill is plainly, palpably, admittedly a political gesture, to capture the colored vole In Harlem and a few so-called pivotal states. Its admitted purpose is to pillary and insult the south to .. gather a few colored votes, in a sordid political game. . ' -' 'The 'bill Is ..Wholly. uViconslitu- ~tional.'It'is a plain invasoh of the polce power of the states. We, who oppose the bill, do not condone lynching. It is murder. We are against It. "The public Is often deliberately misled. Misbranding and false labeling is a common abuse. The so-called anti-lynching bill is case in point. The public is told it will prevent lynching, that those who oppose it are opposed to this desirable objective. Both are false."
