PRESIDENT HABRlaOX INTERVIEWED.
What He lias to Say Concerning the McKln-
ley Bill and Other Things.
New York March 17. The Tribune's
Washington correspondent had a conver
sation with President Harrison wherein
the latter said with respect to tbe work ol
the Fifty-first congress: "In many ways
it has been a most remarkable congress.
Its work has been done in the face of tre
mendous criticism and the legislation
evolved has been the outgrowth of fierce
contentions. The result is one that will
stand well in history and one which the
country will approve. The principle of
tbe majority rule has also been asserted in a
marked decree and adherence to that rule
is in my judgment the one principle which
win preserve me iusiuumuub ui uui coun
try." . . .
speaKing on tne lariu issue ma presiueni
said: "Most decidedly I think there should
be no more agitation on this subject until
the McKin ley bill has been finally tried. Ii
has been charged with numerous faults.
There is no reason why its workings should
be p-ejudiced by malevolent partisans. The
bill has already been long enough in opera-
lion to indicate that much that was antici
paled against it is untrue. A period should
be permitted to pass enough to test fairly
the character of the measure. Then if it
can be shown by such fair and impartial
trial that it has faults letioem De enmiu

London March 17. Mr. Gladstone re
ceived a tremendous and spontaneous ova
lion today. He was leaving Charing
Cross a railroad station for Hastings when
an immense crowd gathered at the depot in
order to witness his departure. Fired by
enthusiasm tbe crowd shouted itself hoarse.
After Gladstone appeared they broke down
the barriers and made a rush for Iho
'grand old man" cheering and waving
hats and handkerchiefs as if mad with joy
to see the veteran statesman.
A number of extra enthusiastic admir
ers of Gladstone not content with demor
alising the depot with their outbreak of
admiration scrambled on top of the cars
of tbe train which was to take him out of
town and there they stood and yelled and
cheeisd until a sudden starting of the
train threw several of them down upon
tbe (rack and platform. Two men were
seriously injured and had to be taken to
Chating Cross hospital and several others
were badly cut and bruised.
urevious to the departure of the train the
executive committee of the Radical associa
tion presented an address to Uladstone In
which it was stated that the association was
hopeful of the brilliant triumph tor Clad
stone and his followers iu tbe coming elec-
tion but the turmoil prevailin. in the dep it
was so great liiai utiauuiuue was uiieriy un
able to say a word in reply. He could only

sentiments eonveyeu in me presema ion oi
In reply to an address presented to him
hi IT in ini'i i hnrtlv afier his arrival. Mr.
Gladstone sail he found little to bUme iu
Lord Salisbury's foreixn policy dunne re
cent years but Mr. Gladstone added he
condemned tbe policy of Mr. Uoschen
I'.iiancellor of the exchequer in concocting
fictitious surpluses and concealing tbe teal
ex n. ndii tires Iroin parliament in order to
manufacture a satisfactory budget. "The
finances of tbe country1 continued the
liberal leader "were intimately connected
with its liberties and he protested against
the insidim.s attempts to undermine tbe
poer of the house of commons to con-
trol the expenditures."
He next alluued to the Irish parliamen-
tary party and remarked that the party
now existim; was the result of a long series
of events and united eff iriB. It could not
be disputed tbat the members of this party
were bound to sink their individual
opinion and bow to the opinions oi the ma
jority. That opinion had been generally
used in the inierests of the empire. "Be-
fore proceeding any lurther" Mr. Glad-
atone added "1 should like to say a word
about Paruell's speech in which he said
'hat he had opposed the claims of the
labor candidates in England in con-
sequence of tne obligation be was
under to the Liberal leaders. There is
not one word of truth in the statement
so far as I am concerned. (Hear! Heart)
Far from opposing tbe claims of the laoor
candidates I have always been ready to
support them. (Cheers.) Touching upon
ihe painful disclosures ot the divorce case
Mr. Uladstone said that it was not his place
to judge the amount of delinquency bat it
was the uartof the Liberals to consider up
on what priuciplea they would be guid' d
in the disposal oi tneir votes xue ioeraiB
knew that the cause ol homerule depended
upon them. The Conservatives might pass
a measure for home rule on the lines indi
cated by the Liberals but the ill starred
abortion called Liberal Unionists were real
objectors to home rule measures. The Lib-
erals" added the veteran statesman ' had
arrived at a definite conclusion in
regard to Mr. Parnell. He (Ulad
stone) was merely the reporter
of the general conviction that the party
was againbt Parnell. This conviction was
arrived at in December. It held good now.
(Cheers.) The Liberals were ready to face
defeat exclusion and misioriunt oui. iney
were not prepared to create a cousin uininai
leade-ship for Ireland under such a guid
ance as Paruell's. No constderaiion would
make them do so." (Cheers.)
Hefeiruig to the government's Irish ad-
minit rminn. Mr. Gladstone contended
that Ireland was governed one way and j
Great Britain another way. "irisnmtn
continued he "were deprived cf many lib
eriles which Entdishmeu enjoyed. It was
for ihe Irish themselves to solve the qties
lion by a prompt and i nanimous declara-
tion against ihe existing administration'
In conclusion Mr Gladstone expreed
the opiniob lhat it was the duty of the L b
erals to prosecute the great aud patriotic
purpose and obtain justice for Ireland
knowing that by the courageous app ica-
lion of liberal principles they would secure
the union of classes the dominion of law
aud the stability of tbe crown. (Cheers.)

The Director of tbe Mint K.-fn 11000-
000 Gold Bars Ordered Fur report
New York March 17. Late this after-
noon Superintendent Mason "f the asuay
ofUce received notice from the director of
the mint tbat $10 0000 in fold bars
ordered by Heidlebacb l Uelholw A
Co. and Lazard Freres would not be l
lowed to be taken for export and the re
quest for the bars was rt fiued.
iuis is the nrst tune in eigt.i years that
tbe government has refused to ;i lnw gold
bars to be taken for export. Previous to

Thet e bars were then in the htmJs cf the
bullion dealer sometimes commanded
premiums as high as i per cent. '
Three years bko the assay o i!i:o bud $.-
000000 in g.dd behind its counter but the
steady drain for tne last two years bay
reduced their stock to $1800CVi!K and the
prospectof further depletion wax plainly
apparent. If the firm named now desire
to ship gold they will have to drw gold
coin from the sub treasury. 'J his it. what
on of ihe firm says it will do.
Coin however by abrasion and other
cases is expected to show a loss ol weight
of yi percent if remitted on other bid and
it is .thought this additional c'la" will
prevent any furtuer shipments min us tht
demand from abroad is extremely urgeut.
