Washington, May 8. The following has
been issued by the president for publica
tion, dated "Executive Mansion, May $:"
"It has .become apparent after two months'
experience that the rules heretofore pro
mulgated regulating interviews with the
president have wholly 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 Unman Endurance.
"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
m e to decline from and after this date all
personal interviews with those seekiut? ap
pointment to office 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 do
sire to pay ther respects, except on the
days and during the hours especially de
signed for that purpose.
A ltrqnett to Statesmen.
"I earnestly request senators and repre
sentatives to aid me in securing for them
oninterrupted interviews by declining to
introduce their constituents and friends
when visiting the executive mansion dur
ing the hours designated for their recep
tion. Applicants for office will only pre
judice their prospects by "repeated impor
tunity and by remaining at Washington to

Mrs. Depew. After Two Years Illness,
Gathered to Eternal Rest.
New York, May 8. Mrs. Elise Hager
man-Depew, wife of ChaunceyM. Depew.
died at her residence in this city at 12:30
p. m. yesterday. Although Mrs. Depew
woj known to be seriously ill the sudden
terail-jation of her illness was not expect-
TOOK UP ALL HIS TIME,
And Did No (innd to Tho-te Who Cot the
The crush of office seekers Saturday
probably had the effect of bringing out the
foregoing announcement. It was the hard
est day the president had experienced in
fcis two terms. The rush of the applicants
Las been growing greater ever since the
president arrived home "from Chicngo and
the strain is sj-.id to have at last become
unbearable. Friends of the president said
that in the interests of public business and
bis haalth as well as the health of the
cabinet members some check should re
put on personal solicitation of ofike. The
president is understood to have beep, loth
to take such n step, but it seems that ne
cessity has finally forced him to do so.
The throng has leen so great that neither
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
his 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 i im
pression. As there are numerous applicants
for every office it can readily be seen that
if this assumption were a fact there would
have to be a considerable increase in the
number of offices available.
The real fact, however, is that the ap
pointments are made on the basis 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 request him to
come to Washington to see the "president,
but in the absence of such a request from
the executive it is safe to say that nothing
is gained by one applicant in a thousai .J
urging his claims personally and verbally.

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
every one. 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 Xov. 4, 1STI. They have but one child,
Chauncey Depew, Jr., who is now 14 years
old. She caried 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 placa
from St. Bartholomew's Episcopal church,
of which the deceased was a member.
LELAND STANFORD ANDTHE CHINESE
He Denonnces the (ieary Law or Any Sort
San Fijancisco, May 8. Some local sur
prise has been caused by Senator Stan
ford's denunciation af Chinese exclusion or
restriction and of the Geary law made in
an interview printed here. He said: "It
is a serious thing to throw any impedi
ments in the way of our Chinese trade.
There should never have lieen a restric
tion law pass-d in the first place, and the
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 business men are not op
posed to them. Neither are the mechanics,
because the Chinese do not take up the
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 made no appronriatioa
for paying the passage of these people back
to China, anil the transportation companies
are not going to do it for nothing."

contract. The railway company there
upon asked an accounting under an exist

granting the injunction prayed for. The
Pullmnn company took an appeal to the

New York. May 8. Referring to the
national convention . at Louisville next

"Ex-President Harrison was of course in
vited to attend and address the National
League convention, and I made the invita

courteous letter, expressing sympathy with
the objects of the meeting, but saying he
feared he would not be able to attend. I
hope he may come, and if he does we shall
give him an old-fashioned Republican wel

"I have certainly no personal ambition
to servo nor any factional line to raise.
Under no possible circumstances would 1
consent to accept re-election as president
of the league, both because I have made
business engagements thatvould absolute

these party places and thus bringing
young blood to the front and new element
into the party. We are going to have a
strong and splendid convention at Louis

make the party victorious in 1MW."
