Washington, May S. The following has
been issued by the president for publica
tion, dated "Kxecutive Mansion, May S:w
It has become apparent after two months'
experience that the rules heretofore pro
mulgated regulating interviews with the
president have w holly failed in their opera
tion. The time which under those rules
was set apart for the reception of senators
and representatives has been almost en
tirely spent in listening to applications for
office which have been bewildering in vol
ume, perplexing and exhausting in their
iteration, and impossible of remembrance.
Too Much for Hainan Knilaranrr.
"A due regard for public duty which
must be neglected if present conditions
continue and an observance of the limita
tions placed upon human endurance oblige
me to decline from and after this date all
personal interviews with those set kiug ap
pointment to otllee except as I, on my
own motion, may especially invite them.
The same considerations make it impossi
ble for me to receive those who merely de
sire to pay t Iit-r respects, except on the
days and during the he urs especially de
signed for that purpose.
A Keqneat to Stateaen.
I earnestly request senators and repre
sentatives to aid me in securing for them
uninterrupted interviews by declining to
introduce their constituents and friends
when visiting the executive mansion dur
ing the hours designated for their rece
tion. Applicants for office will ouly pre

TOOK UP ALL HIS TIME,
CHAUNCEY DEPEW BEREAVED.
Mrs. Depew, After Two Years' Illnnas,
Gathered to Kternal Rest.
New Yokk, May 8. Mrs. Elise Hagei
man-Depew, wife of Chauncey.M. Depew..
died at her residence in this city at 12:30
p. m. yesterday. Although Mrs. Depew
waj known to be seriously ill the sudden
termination of her illness was not expect-
II IiS. CHAUXCEY M. IiEl'EW,
ed by her family and those who were inti
mately connected with her. All her loved
ones were present at her death, which was
peaceful. Mr. Depew was completely
prostrated and has shut himself up against
everyone. All the afternoon and evening
friends were calling at the residence, leav
ing canls and expressing sympathy with
the family. Mrs. Depew had been an in
valid for two years.
Mrs. Depew was married to Mr. Depew
on Nov. 4, 171. They have but one child,
Chauncey Depew. Jr.. who is now 14 years
old. She enried little for society and devoted
her time mainly to charitable and church
work. Her passion was music, and at one
time she had the reputation of being the
finest amateur pianist in the city. It is
probable that the funeral will take place
from St. Bartholomew's Episcopal church,
of which the deceased was a member.
LELAND STANFORD AND THE CHINESE
And rid o tinoil to Those Who iot the
The crush of i.ffiee seekers Saturday
probably had the effect of bringing out the
foregoing announcement. It was the hard
est day the president had experienced in
his two terms. The rush of the applicants
Las been growing greater ever since the
president arrived home from Chicago and
the strain is sr.id to have at last become
unbearable. Friends of the president said
that in the interests t f public business and
Lis health as well as the health of tl:e
cabinet members some check should 1
put on personal solicitation of ofiUe. Tli?
president is understood to have beep, loth
to take such a step, but it seems that ne
cessity has finally forced him to do so.
The throng has lieen so great that tieit her
the president nor his cabinet has had time
to look over endorsements, and thereby ap
pointments have been hindered instead of
expedited. As a matter of fact it is said
that no good arises from the personal in
terviews of applicants. The president and
Lis cabinet ministers are so overburdened
with remarks verbally on the subject that
it is a matter of mental and physical im
possibility for them to begin to remember
the hundredth part of what is said to them.
Each applicant naturally thinks that he
personally is sure to make a favorable im
pression. As there are numerous applicants
for every office it can readily lie seen that
if this assumption were a fact there would
Lave to be a considerable increase in the
number of offices available.
The real fact, however, is that the ap
pointments are made on the iwisis of the
showing made in the endorsements are
carefully studied in the little time filed
in each case, which endorsements left
after the numerous callers are received.
Whenever these endorsements point to any
man as the one for the place, it is then
sometimes deemed wise to make further
inquiries and perhaps to ret pi est him to
come to Washington to see the president.
but in the absence of such a request from ,
the executive it is sale to say max novuing
is gained by one applicant in n thousai d
urging his claims personally and verbally.

an interview printed here, lie said: "It
is a serious thing to throw any impedi
ments in the way of our Chinese trade.
There should never have leen a restric

Geary law which has followed is an out
rage. We need the Chinese here to work
in our fields, vineyards and orchards and
gather our fruits and do the common labor
of the country.
'Our intelligent businessmen are not op
posed to them. Xeitherare the mechanics,
because I lie Chinese do not take up tha
trades. They simply do the commonest
kind of work, and in doing so they do not
really come into competition with white
labor. Congress has m-de no appropriation
for paying the passage of these people back
to China, and the transportat ion companies
are not going to do it for nothing."
