A Hard Day's Work at Listening
ILLINOIS PRESENT IN GEEAT F0E0E
A Pleasant Incident to Break the Monot-
gtony One Caller Who Thought He Bad
a Grievance Carlisle Gives a Musical
Union Man Cold Comfort General Over
hauling of Senatorial Reputations
Talked of, but Probably Will Not Come
Off Latest List of Cmnrmatlons
Washtnoton, March 30. Cleveland was
worn out yesterday by the necessity which
compelled him to shake hands and talk
With scores of office-seekers. For three
hours and a half he stood in his office and
talked with the importuning senators and
representatives and their convoys of more
persistent and more interested constituents
who are anxious to serve the government.
One o'clock is the hour at which the
president closes his door to callers who
wish to see him on business. When that
time arrived there was still a large crowd
Of people waiting in the cabinet room,
bnt he left them there and went down
stairs into the East room, where several
hundred people, including a nun?oer of la
dies, waited a chance to shake hands with
the chief executive. It was the hardest
day he has had since his inauguration,
j; An Incident that Was Refreshing.
t "Here's luck, Mr. President," said Rep
resentative Washington, of Tennessee, and
there was a smile of satisfaction in re
sponse. In this manner the Tennessee
member made the presentation of a lucky
piece to Cleveland. The coin was a half
dollar of the year 1837 the year in
which Cleveland first saw the light and it
was sent to Washington for presentation
to the president by an old Democratic war
horse, named -Andrew Jackson Long, of
Cedar Hill, Tenn. The coin was accom
panied by a letter which seemed to amuse
Cleveland very much when he read it, and
he promised to answer it personally. This
was only one of a number of incidents
which occurred in the president's room yes
terday. Illinois Was In Force.
As remarked above there were quite a
number of callers and among them was a
delegation of Illinois men, marshaled by
Senator Palmer. There were Perry Smith,
applicant for the Grecian mission; J. J.
O'Donnell, applicant for public printer;
John Guy Owsley, applicant for consul
general to Calcutta; Ch arle Felton, who
wants the Chicago collectorshipy and Sher
wood Dixon, Palmer's candidate for dis
trict attorney for northern Illinois. They
formed in line at the top of the stairway,
General Black taking the position at the
left of the senator. Mr. Durborow 'fell in
Jnst behind. Springer and the others.
Frank Lawler Was There.
'Wasn't Frank Trawler the re f might be
aaked and the reply ia that he was; he
Ilways is. And as soon as he got inside he
Slid for a chair and prepared to stay, tak
ing a paper out of his pocket and becom
ing so interested that he didn't see the Illi
nois delegation go. Frank has as backing
now Palmer, Black and McGann. He also
has that of Archbishop Feehan, of Chicago,
and the College of Jesuits at that place.
Archbishop Ireland has urged the appoint
ment of William J. Onahan to the Chicago
postoffice, and it is said that the Jesuit
college there may withdraw their support
from Lawler in favor of Onahan.
An Aggrieved Caller.
President Cleveland had a caller yester
day who came away very much aggrieved.
He brought his papers to present in person
to the president and to make his applica
tion for office. The president listened to
the applicant and received the precious
bundle of papers, which he straightaway
tossed into a basket on the table near by.
"Did you see that?" gasped the office-seeker
as he passed out. "He threw my papers
into the waste basket," and he refused to
be comforted until it was explained to him
that the basket was designed to hold the
accumulation of papers until they could
be properly assorted and filed.
The only appointment of prominence
made yesterday was that of Herman
Stump, of Maryland, to be superintendent
of immigration. Secretary Carlisle ap
pointed Millard B. Herley, of Chicago, a
special inspector of customs, and Fourth
Assistant Postmaster General Maxwell
whacked off thirty-six heads.
CARLISLE TO A MUSICIAN.
Be Declines to Shut Out Foreign "Arti.t."
in the Musical I.rhe.
WASHINGTON, March 30. Some time ago
Alexander Bremer, the president of the
Musical Protective union of New Yo rk,
wrote to Secretary Carlisle protesting
against what he 6aid was the unfair inter
pretation of the alien contract labor law
by virtue of which foreign musicians or
ganized as buds or orchestras were per
mitted to land in this country under the
"flimsy excuse of designating and classing
them as artists." In his letter Bremer
said that he had corresponded unsuccess
fully with the late administration for a
favorable interpretation of the law in be
half of the musical profession of this coun
try against the importation of cheap Euro
pean musical talent by unscrupulous and
avaricious American speculators and man
agers. Left with the Inspection Officer.
Carlisle sent a reply to Bremer iu which,
after citing the law, he says that he sees no
occasion to interfere with the previous ac
tion of the department which, in his opin
ion, is fully justified by the law. "I have
no doubt," says the secretary, "that the
term artist includes musicians who com
bine science and taste in the manual execu
tion of their art. Whether they have at
tained to this standard of excellence is a
question to be determined in the first in
stance by the inspection officer."'
MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA.
We Could Then See Whit Sort of Senators
, .AVashisgton, March 30. The feature of
the senate session yesterday came at the
close when Senator Powers, of Montana,
demanded an investigation of the insinua
tions which have been made against his
enaracter prior to nis election tor the sen
ate. The Republicans have determined to
press the investigation into the life of
Roach, and there were published state
ments yesterday that it was the intention
of the Democratic senators, if this investi
gation was gone into, to open wide the
doors and have a general investigation of
Gorman Makes a Dark Insinuation.
1 In this connection there was published
statements regarding Senator Power and
also the remarks denunciatory of him
made by Turpie, of Indiana, at the time of
the contest over the seat held by Power.
Tnrpie's remarks were very bitter and as
cribed personal rascality of the worst kind
to Power. No action was taken on the de
mand of the Montana senator, Gorman,
asking that it go over and intimating that
if the senate wished to go into the investi
gation of transactions which had occurred
prior to the election of senators, the in"
vestigation would have to take in several
of the senators on the Republican side of
Vest Gives Bis View of Matters.
Powers said that Turpie's remarks re
garding him were unbecoming a senator
unless susceptible of proof. Vest said that
if the senate was going to investigate every
charge in the public press the senate might
as well abandon all other business and go
into investigations exclusively. There was
not a senator who had not been libeled. As
the senator from Ohio (Sherman) had once
said on a similar occasion the courts were
open and a senator was like any private
Will Be No Investigation.
A prominent Democratic senator is
authority for the statement that there will
be no investigation of senators as proposed.
He intimated that the Democrats would
vote down the resolution proposing an in
vestigation of Senator Roach.
Washington, March 30. The senate
after its executive session yesterday an
nounced the following among other con
firmations: William Simms, assistant

I The Senate In Brief.
, Washington, March 30. The oppor
tunity for a long talk on the governor ap
pointees question is too rich for neglect
and Pugh started the debate yesterday
with an extended speech in favor of seating
. such appointees. Mitchell, Piatt, Vest,
' Gray, George, Hoar, Vance and others
also spoke. Powers demanded an investi
gation of the charges made against him in
the senate by Turpie at the time he (Pow
ers) was seated, and the demand went over.
