YELLOWSTONE PARK. |
Lobbyists Endeavoring to Defeat Legisla
tion in Its Interests.
Washington. Derember 21st.—A persistent
lobby, headed by Heruando De Solo ilorey, has
been actively at work in Washington lor the
last eight years to defeat legislation in the in
terest of the Yellowstone National Park. Morey
haa, as an ex-member ol the Uouie from Miss
issippi, the privilege of the floor, and therefore
exceptional facilities for serving his employers,
the Montana Mineral Railway Company. This
corporation is desirous of securing the exclusive
iririlege for the coustruction of a railroad to
certain mines located near the northern bound
ary efthe park.
Ths value of the mines is more than doubtful,
nor hu it been demonstrated, to the satisfaction
of those who think the park should be kept free
from intrusion of this kind, that a railroad
could not be constructed to reach the mines
without entering the park.
Be this as it may, the fact remains that the
frlenta of the park are willing to change the
northern boundary of the reservation by mak
ing the Yellowstone river the natural dividing
line, bo as to place the proposed railway eu
tirely outiide of the limits of the park, but this
is precisely what the lobby repiesenting the
Montana Mineral Railroad Company does not
want. Its members care less for reaching the
lainw by a dirtot route lying outtide of the
park boundaries, than for securing the exclus
ive privilege of entering the park and captur
ing. In addition to such busiuess as the mines
Bight furnish, a vastly more profitable pa^sen
gat traffic which would be diverted froai the
other raads now leading to the park.

Elgnor Succi Does Not Seem to Have Lost
New Yop.k, December 21st.—Wi.en Signor
Sucti arose from his sleep today, afier the long
slumber which he fell into soon after his feat
ended last night, an elaborate meal was placed
before him. He ate with extraordinary relish
chicken soup, fried smelts, fried calves' brains,
quail on toast, iruit, confections, ice cream,
caffee and a pint each of Bard's Extract and
Grand See. Succi occupied two hours cousum
ing the food. He never faltered, but ate with a
zest that puzzled even George Francis Train,
who was present Julian Hawthorne and p3et
Stephen Massett were also present when the
faster dined. Soon after the conclusion of the
meal Succi retired for a nap, preparatory to his
trip to Boston, where he goe3 to exhibit at a

New York, December 21st.—A Herald Wash

were addressed exclusively to members of the
Foreign Affmrs Committees of the two Houses.
"Fryeof Maine said: 'Elaine's argument was
tbat English poaching should cease on the
cround of good morals among the nations.
Unfortunately for him the report made subse

intelligence that the seals were not ditappear

to-day than they were ten years ago. This was,
I might say, a clean blow between the eyes. It

completely upset our argument that poaching
was destructive to the life of the seafi, and in
a sense justified the action taken by the Cana

the matter In a different light. His report, re

of killing on our part, supplemented by tha
wanton destruction by poachers, is rapidly e»

aud he supports his argument so conclusively
that I have no doubt of its correctness.'"
NO BACKWARD STEP. !
Senator Stanford Will Continue the
Breeding of Fast Borsea.
New Yoek, December 21st —In an interview
with a Herald Washington correspondent, Sena
tor Stanford taid: "While I am best known as
a breeder of light harness horses 1 am greatly
interested in breedinK the runner, as well. I
have not yet fully decided what member of my
stud I shall select to take the place of Election
eer. I have several good stallions of the same
blood, such as Electricity, Palo Alto and As
moor. I shall give Palo Alto a good oppor
tunity in my stud. Electricity would, I think,
have trotted rery low down, but he suffered an
injury to his leg, and I had to throw him out ot
training. I must breed on and on. No back

lifetime I shall breed a horse that can trot a

Altl'Ras (Modoc county), December 21st.
Frank Mears, an old resident of this county,
was found dead in the corral of Robert Wells
last Monday evening. H seems that he was in
the employ of Mr. Wells, and was left at the
ranch to feed the stock while the family came
to Alturas. When Mr. Wells returned he found
Mears lying in the corral dead with a large
bruise on his right arm, resembling that of the
ki kof a horse. The team that he was using in
feeding the stock had run away and broken the
torque out of the wagon. Ihe wagon was
jammed against the barn and one horse in the
bain and the other in the corral. It is not
known exactly how Mr. Mears came by his
death, but it is supposed that he either fell from
the wagon or was kicked by a horse.

Idiots hare been known whose memory
for names and words was so retentive that
they could repeat a sermon verbatim and
indicate where the preacher blew his nose
and coughed while delivering it. Cardinal
Mezzofanti, the linguist, who is said to
have known a hundred languages, de
clared that he never forgot a word he had
once learned. To a friend, who had con
gratulated Leyden on his remarkable
memory, he replied that he had often
found it a source of great inconvenience.
On the friend expressing surprise, he ex
plained that he had often wished to recall
a particular expression in something he
had read, but could not do it until he had
repeated the whole passage from the be
ginning to the expression he desired to re
An English clergyman mentions a man
who could remember the day of the burial
of every person who had died in the par
ish during thirty-five years, and could also
repeat the name and age of each deceased
person, and the name of the moßrners at
his funeral; but so weak was he intellect
ually that he could not be trusted to- feed
himself. J) r . Moffatt, the distinguished
African missionary and father-in-law to
Dr.-Livingstone, once preached a long ser
mon to a crowd of negroes. Shortly alter
he had finished, he saw a number of ne
groes gather about a simple-minded young
savage. He went to them, and discovereJ
that the savage was preaching his sermoa
over again. Not only was he reproducing
the precise words, but imitating the man-
ncr and gestures of tbe white preacher.
Prejudice Against Railway Management.
Estimating the aggregate value of our
railways- at $3,000,000,000, Dr. Lyman Ab
bott declares that this has been acquired
"by railroad kings taking as their own the
public highway*." Now. there doubtless
have been cases where franchises, known
at the time to be valuable, have been in
judiciously or even corruptly parted with
by the State for private gain. Jacob
Sharp's Broadway horse railway was
clearly enough such a case. Perhaps the
elevated roads of Xew York city afford
another instance. Possibly the New Jersey
Central and the Pennsylvania C'-entral
might be mentioned in this connection.
Bnt, in regard to the vast majority of the
ordinary steam railways of the United
States, the indisputable fact is that, at the
time they were chartered, fhe franchises
were not highly valuable, if indeed they
had any market value at all. In regard
to many of them, the original investors
' were moved quite as much by public spirit
as by considerations of private interest.
Take the old Western Railroad, for exam
ple, now the larger part of the Boston and
Albany. To secure the capital for this
road, public meetings were held, at one of
which, if I rightly remember, Edward
Everett presided, the citizens of Boston
and of the towns along the projected route
were urgently appealed to, as for the gen
eral good. Every fresh subscription was
greeted with appLause. Vn the comple
tion of the road a great banquet was given
in Albany, at which Governor Seward
presided and toasted the projectors of the
enterprise as public benefactors. Substan
tially that which has been said of this
case could be said of hundreds of other
loads', little or big, which were buii. under
Nor is it true that, the railroads having
been thus built by general consent, and
having been made private property by law,
the owners and managers have used the
advantage given them to bleed the public.
The history of railroad rates in this coun
try presents a wonderful record of charges
reduced, and further reduced, and still
again reduced, until today goods and
passengers are carried at rates often less
than the proper cost of the service, so low
indeed as to be, in the broadest view, in
jurious to the public interest. In an ad
dress to the workingmen of Providence, in
ISSC, Edward Atkinson stated that in 1860
the Vanderbilt roads charged §3 45 for
carrying a barrel of flour from Cbicago to
Boston. In 18S5 the charge had been re
duced to 68 cents. The profit to the rail
road by the transaction was 14 cents, or
less than the value of the empty barrel.
A very large part of our railway mileage
today pays no dividends on stock: much
of it does not even pay interest on the
bonds issued for its construction. It is
doubtful whether the present value of the
stock and bonds of all the roads in the
comitry equals the amount which would
be needed to build and equip the system.—
GeneralF. A. Walka- in the Forum"
"Little Miss Fuss," they calletl her when
she was a tiny thing, and though she is

is still deservedly hers.
"She has known one letter of the alpha

father, when, as a child, she spoiled an ex

Ten years have done a great deal for

aud affectionate, yet her habit of complain

people who love her best.
'"Keep Margaret out of the room,"' said
her aunt, as she was recovering from a se
vere illness. "She is a dear girl, but her
complaints of everything, from the weather

"Of course the concert hall had to be

pouted Margaret on her return from a
visit. "Just my luck . I always wanted
to hear the organ there!"
"I believe several people lost their lives
at the fire," said her mother, gravely, but
Margaret only reiterated her complaint:
"It's just my luck! Why couldn't it
have happened afterward?"
Margaret did not begin life a3 a selfish
child, but she is fast making herself a sel
fish woman. The habit of dwelling much
upon one's own woes leads to the habit of
compelling other people to listen to them,
and in the two are combined all the ele

Harrington Jurther said he regretted the per
sonalities in which both sides indulged He
was surprised that Parnell hud descended to
the use of scurrilous language and had applied
offensive epithets to his late colleagues. The
unfortunate split in the party, he said had frus
trated the objects of the American mis.-ion,
which it woud be useless to nnew at present,
for while the Irishmen were in their present be
wildered state they would reiuse to listen to the
appeals of either party.
Speaking at Cork when the Mayor presented
the address to him. Harrington contended taat
whether or not Parnell's action was right, those
who, after re-electing him leader sougni to oust
him, forfeited the confidence of the Irish,
Ihe English democracy, he declared, would
fupport home rule, and it was only necessary to
bring up to the scratch the English politicians,
who would likely betray them if disappointed
in setting places afer the general ejection.
Parnell was not a mere political leader, but
rather a general of the country, leading his
army to freedom. However, men might shake
their heads in the family circle, this is not the
time to desert him, and with him Irish inde

Kew York, December 21st—A Dunlap Lon

over. The Queen's Proctor has had all ths evi
dence and documents connected with the
divorce placed before him, and he is at present
engaged In instituting inquiries with a view to
intervening before the dtcree nisi is made abso
lute. This action has been taken in conse
quence of Parnell's speech at Dublin.
Ihere is good reason to think that Parnell
made a statement leading to the belief that
there was another side to the case, with a view
of forcing the Proctor to interfere. If the Proc
tor does not take this course it will undoubtedly
produce a great sensation, as it is a well-known
iact that a great deal of evjdeuce was tup
pressed at the trial.
