Edit huge files in Emacs.

I downloaded the file DASGMachineReadable.txt [1] from its official
website [2-3].
This file is very large, as shown below:

$ du -h DASGMachineReadable.txt
28M    DASGMachineReadable.txt

$ wc DASGMachineReadable.txt
  306319 12775096 28535028 DASGMachineReadable.txt

When I try to open and edit the file using Emacs, Emacs gets stuck and
basically doesn't work. Any suggestions for solving this problem?
