I.MBCIAX DISPATCHES TO THK BECORD-UMOSt.] BEFORE CONGRESS. Little Business Expected to be Trans acted tbe Present Week. Washington, December 21st.—It is unlikely that any positive legislation will be achieved in Congress this week, and the failure to take the usual holiday recess is not expected to result iv any measurable advancement of public busi- In ihe Senate the elections bill will probably consume the rlrst three days of the week. The possibilities of an interruption hinges alto gether upon the result of the negotiations now In progress anioug the Republican Senators upon the subject oi the caucus financial bill. If a harmonious understanding to support this measure is rcaehtd, the elections bill may be •aid aside in its favor, and discussion in the Senate turn ou financial matters until the day before Christmas, when it is expected a recess will be taken uutil Monday. It It probable a successive adjournment for two or three days at a time will mark the course of the House during the Chiistmas holiday sea son. No business of importance is expected to be done, as so many members nave left Wash ington tor tome that a quorum can hardly be su.-r.rtd. Monday is District of Columbia day, and the House will probably pass upon local legislation until some measure is proposed, upou which a vote is demanded, acd tne absence of a qi^prum thereby disclosed. Such other days in the week ai the douse is in session will probably be de voted to comparative by unimportant measures. 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. LARGE LAND DKll., Baigham TouDg'« Eldest Sou Purchases a Large Tract in Mexico. Pittsburg, December 21st—A special from Lima, 0., says: B. C. Faurot, a well-known basker of this city, and who is also Pro»ident or the Columbus, Lioaand Northwestern Kail road, large y interened in railroad enterprises 1b Mexico, returned home from New York this afternoon, and announce! the consummation of a deal with John ,W. Young, e'.dest son ot the late Brigham Young, whereby Young CDmes in p«#se£sien of three million acres of land, which was granted to Faurot by the Mexican Govern ment three years ago. The negotiations have We«n in progress for some time, and were finally clojed iv New York yesterday. Tne land is lo cated in the northern part of Mexico. About three years ago Faurot obtained a valu able grant from the Mexican Government, which included these lands, the stipulation be ing the construction of a railroad extending (rum Deming. N. M . to CasMlabompa Bayo, on the Pacific coast. The Mexican Government, in connection with thia graut, offers $-OJto ever family and SVi to every man who locates Permanently on this land.

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 museum. !

My inquiries 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 quently by the two Treasury agents contained intelligence that the seals were not ditappear ing, but on the contrary were more numerous to-day than they were ten years ago.

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 ward step must be taken, but whether in my lifetime I shall breed a horse that can trot a mile in two minutes is a problem I am not cap able of solving. lam earnestly endeavoring to do so, and in so trying I shall certainly not retrograde iv the science of breeding.

New York, December 21st.—If the rumors current at ihe Windsor Hotel ye§terday turn out to be correct, George J. Gould Is about to re ceive a very handsome Christmas present from his indulgent father.

San Diego, December 2Ht.—A turn of the scales in favor of Los Angeles, after four succes sive defeats at the hands of the San Diego Club, gave the former club to-day's game by a fcore ot 14 to 10. The batteries were Carsey and Loh man for Los Angeles, and Darby aud Dungan for San Diego. Los Angeles hit Darby hard, es pecially Jn the first, when they piled up seven mns, five earned. In the second San Diego nearly overtook them, making six. but they were unable to score any more until the ninth, when they scored four. By that time, however, the Los Angeles team had too big a lead for tbe locals to oveicome. In the fourth Goldie, at bat, received a pitched ball in the temple, which knocked him out as effectually as a Sullivan undercut, aud for a time it was thought he was seriously hurt. He recovered consciousness in a few miuutes, and is apparently none the worse for Darby's speed.

P., who was sent to Cowlchan by the Gov ernment to report on the extent of the floods and damage done, returned to Victoria to-day. He says the published reports were not at all exaggerated. Every bridge in the district will have to be rebuilt. The waters are now reced ing, and fears of further damage allayed. An extra of the Government Gazelle was issued this evening, summoning the Provincial Parlia ment to meet January lath. This is a much earlier date than usual. Fatal Accident. 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. Twelve Prisoners Escape. Olyxpia (Wash.), December 21st.—Twelve prisoners confined in the County JaU escaped this afternoon. JaileT Headley, 74 jears of age was seized and locked in a cell. He was ascend ing the steps into the second story of the jail, where the prisoners are confined, and was fol lowed by several ol the prisoners, who pushed tbe door■\>pen, seized htm by the throat and took his pistol and keys. The prisoners then had no difficulty in escaping. All the jailer re members of the affair is that he was thrown into the cell. Suicide of a Mexican. Los As<;eles, December 21st.— Fernando Chacon, a one-legged Mexican, committed sui cide in the city prison this morning, cutting his throat from ear to ear, severing the jugular and dying in ten minutes.

He bad a large bowie-knife secreted about his person and cut hie throat in his bunk it-is morning just as the prisoners were awak ened for breakfast. Harness Store Bnrglarized. Gbass Valley, December 21st.—Elmer Rob erts' harness store, on Mill street, was burglar ized last night and a number of articles stolen. There is uo clew to the robbers. Remarkable Memories. 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 call. 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 individual charters. 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" Fussy. "Little Miss Fuss," they calletl her when she was a tiny thing, and though she is now known as Margaret, the old nickname is still deservedly hers. "She has known one letter of the alpha bet ever since she was born,'? said her father, when, as a child, she spoiled an ex cursion for a large party by fidgeting; and complaints, "and that's the letter O!" '"O ." cried Miss Fuss, when the coach lurched, and "Oh !" again as the point of a sunshade touched her hat. She certainly did use that one expression with monot onous faithfulness. Ten years have done a great deal for Margaret. At 16 she is graceful, pretty aud affectionate, yet her habit of complain ing makes her a nuisance, even to the 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 np, make me very nervous." "Of course the concert hall had to be burned just before I went to St. Stephen '." 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 ments of fretful selfishness.— Youth's Com panion. Placer Olive Oil Industry. Mrs. Emile Roberson is now making her olive crop into oil. With her facilities she is able to crush and press from 300 to 400 pounds a day. The quality of her crop this year is very superior, and Bbc antici pates realizing some very good oil. The fruit being crushed at present is mostly of the Pieboiine variety, the Missions and some others rippning later are hardly ready yet to be gathered. As an oil olive Mrs. Roberson, who has some seventeen ditfer ent varieties on her place, favors the Pich oline, as it ripens earlier and produces she thinks the highest percentage of oil. Un this latter point she is makiDg a test, both as to quality and percentage of oil Irom the different varieties, which will he of value to all producers.— Placer Herald.

HABKINUTON DEFENDS rARNELL. rcßLiy, December _'lst.—lturington, at Queenstown, said he believed if O'Brien Lad been home, or if Parnell had seen his way to retire in accordance with the wishes of the majority, tte present disastrous crisis would have been avoided. He supposed, however that Parnell had good reason* for the course he adopted. 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, people. 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 pendence Is more valuab'e than Gladstone's good intentions. The question of public moral ity was settled at Ltinster Hall, and the seced ers possessed no programme or plan justifying their desert on or their leader. PARNELL'S AGONY SOT YET OVER. Kew York, December 21st—A Dunlap Lon don cable says: Parnell's agony is by no means 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.
