The transmission of the Hawaiian coi

nature ot the coriespondoneo nnd instruc

of diplomacy to right the wrong from
Its standpoint which has been done to
Hawaiian monnrohj thnt Hie sltuillon
now is one for congress to deride ln other
words diplomacy has fulled to restore the
conditions existing prior lo the revolu

Washington December 10 Most natural
ly tho recent order excluding fiom the
floor of the senate all persoona excepting
members of that body rnd n few favored
officials has elicited a storm of protests
and criticism JScfore a oclock In the
morning tho clinmber Is nominally fiee to
outsiders Hut the stray Individual who
prhaps once In a month or two might
bo loitering around at that compurntliUy
eaily hour would be qulle sure It he at
tempted entrance to discover there wu no
one accessible with authority to unlock
the doors which had been closed the night

Onlj In recent > eor ha there been any
attempt nt exclusllcness of this charac
ter Ior a long time oen while the sen
nte was holding ft sessions the regula
tions as to admission to the Moor were
quite liberal Step by step howeier
the list was curtailed until scarcely an >
one Willi iho exception of number of
the house can pass the sacred portals If
the senate Is eittlnp
The prohibition extends to n lory largo
proportion of the senates own orfjoem A

hnie a caid of permission from a senator
When the senate was not In eeaslon liow
eicr the iicuple have al ny enjoicd the
not extmoidlnary privilege of inejiictlng
the chamber and If then has l > e n nny
Instance if ruffianism or vandalism In con
sequence It Is not generally known
It Is said the reason for this hen hedging
of th American house of lords from con
tact with the common people Is because
of tho apprehension that cranks and an
archists might gain entrance to the door
and do some terrible damave It Is nleo
said und this la more likely that the
new regulation la Intended to keep out the
army of office soekers and others who
have been in the habit of Invading the
place and catching senators nt their desks
here they cm pour their appeals Into un
willing eats
