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 crowd.
