Washisgtos. Dec IK Some of the iee
nlations for tbe protection of senators
from outside intrusion, which have been
adopted during the present session of con
Kress, are attracting considerable atten
tion and much adverse criticism from tba
babitnes of tba CapitoL Manr senators
also regard tbe regulat ions as unnecessary
anu ocject to being put in the poaitition
of trying to avoid meeting tbe public and
say tnat tbe new rules are not the result
of any general consultation with senators.
There are but two elevators in tbe senate
wing, and tbe public is now restricted to
tbe use of one of them. Tbe senate cham
ber which bas ever since the establish
ment of tbe government been open to visi
tors, w-uen ine senate was not in session,
has also been closed against the public
Tlie privilege of going upon the floor bas
always been considered one of tbe great
est wuich the out-of-town visitor could en
joy; but under the new regulations visit
ors will not be allowed this privilege.
The president's room is now also closed
to visitors except those who possess sena
torial influence i-ufficient to have the
doors unlocked. The professed object of
all this solitude is to promote the business
of the senate and protect senators as far
as possible from outside intrusion, while
they are attending to business and as in
the case of excluding visitors from tbe
president's room and tbe senate chrmber
to prevent tlie desecration of these places
by lelic-hnnters. U is said that some ot
tbe senators olject to liug jostled by tbe
crowd in tbe elevators and tbat when they
cboe to occupy tl:cir desks in the cham
ber when the senate is not in session, they
prefer privacy rather than the interrup
tion to which tbty are subjected by the
