The news that the Fresidenthas his mes eage no longer on his mind, buton the type wrlter, has produced a final rush to the center- It will be batn few days now until Congress meets, and the time Is being utilised by Senators and Representatives to catch the Presidential ear before the bard work of thesesslonis commenced. Xesterdaywasa type of the rehabilitated rwsb which has been in suspense now or about two weeks. There was a big crowd until 4. p. m.t at which hour thre were many who went home with a great deal of tmfmisHPd business under their hats. It will perhaps be pleasing news to those -with delayed brief.s to be informed that from tiorrow it .will not be mi difficile to get an HUditncc. Tim. applies only to of ficial visitors. Some idea of the popularity of the Presi dent Just now may be had frum a- list of tlKihc who sought and most of whom utomlttcd a hearing lrom him yesterday. There wore Senators Klkins, Lodge, Priteh anl Burrows, Jones of Nevada, Fairbmks, llnwlcy ind Lodge, and Representatives llitt. Morns, Bingham, Bnlzell, and others -who escaped the catalogist. Other vihitorh were Gen. Dodge, cx-Sp-ak-er Keifer, Judge Thompson of Ohio, ex Semitor Conger, Judge Miner of Utah, Gov- Olero of Mew Mexico, Comptroller Eckels,, Ed. Biuwaert French consul gen eral at Now York. The interesting wiggestionsin the Mi-its wuie that Senators Erklns, Lodge, and I'riteJMvrd are members of the Civil Service Reform Committee of the Senate. There lms Ueen a strong effort made to excite the miuds of Repiefentatives against te pTeeerii conduct or the merit -system. A great deal of testimony has been taken as to the cause of the dismissals or reduc tions of employes, bt the President Is said to be fetnuding firm on liiK construc tion of the law, even on the minor matter of a change of rating. All of his rulings are so far In favor of the employe whoc record Is good. The President can scarcely take any other ground in bis message. Representative Hitt has been gazetted jib the friend uf the President in the Hojse on foreign affairs. He has paid se.-eral visits to the White House, at the request of the rreMdent, it is said, to talk over the dittoes of the Hawaiian treaty and the Senate resolution relating to granting lMsSlgereiit rrglits to the Cuban insurgents There is patent in all the Administration has said, so far, a desire that there shall e no e3ciled agitation of the Cuban qtierttots in tlie House. The Ha;vUian annexation treaty will pass the Senate -with LonNiiVrahlt opposition, however, and then- will be opposition to it in the House.
