Anderson went before the I committee this morning and seemed greatly surprised that the resolution which had i.cc:: referred to tiie committee had not been heard from in an official way. He at ome declared tfaat'_ome railroad scoundrel had caused it to be misplaced." Soon after he introduced another n solution of a like character, and it was referred to the same committee, lie says he will see-that it is not assaulted en route io the committee by the strong railroad lobby which he says is in attend ance. He went back to the committee again and succeeded in gelling a special meeting for Friday to consider the reso lution, which directs the interstate Com merce (k>mm_~tion to ascertain the exact conditions and provisions of the railroad agreement, and report if there is any law now iiie. t will interfere with the organi zation, and ii'not, what legislation would be necessary p> enable the people to pn >- tect themselves in court against the com bination. To a California Associated Press representative, to-day, Anderson said he was determined to get the resolu tion passed nnd investigation ordered.

Allison, as Chairman of the Committee on Appn priations, will, of course, exert quite an influence in the selection of.a Site, as the money must be appropriated by his committee for the purpose, but he v.iil probably not oppose Benicia's selec tion when be ascertains thai the location of a foundry in the interior would, not be feasible, according to the report of the Army Board.

The Directors Decide to Surrender Its Charter. CnicAGO, Jan. 20.—The Chicago Gas Trust has decided to surrender its char ter and wind up its business as soon as possible. This was decided upon at a recent meeting ofthe Directors, but has just been made public. The anti-trust laws, as expounded in a recent decision of ths Illinois Supreme Court, showed that the trust could not leenllv hold stock oi its constituent companies, and the Directors were probably further spurred to action by a recast announcement of Attorney-General Hunt that he would begin quo warranto proceedings. President Billings says an effort will be made to organize a new corporation in a form which will comply with the law. The details are not yet niapinxl out in re gard to the effect of dissolving the trust on the stock. He thought it could not be hurt. It is based on tlie properties of the different companies in the trust, and the dissolution of the form of the trust will not affect it. In the plan of reorganization it isunder stood that the individual companies will retain their identity. PECULIAR CASE. A Minister Arrested In Peru for Hold ing Religious Services. New York, Jan. 20.—The arrest and imprisonment of Francis Penzotti, a Methodist minister in Callao. Peru, has created wide comment in religious circles. That in these enlightened days a man could be imprisoned merely for holding religious exercises, and then, after hav ing been acquitted of the charges against him, is still held a prisoner, subject to a decision from a court, which, immedi ately upon receiving the papers, took a recess for two months, leaving him to Buffer in a filthy dungeon, surrounded by the lowest class of convicts, is an as tounding story. Senor Don Felix Zeganra, Peruvian Minister to tho United States, says the story of the persecution of. Penzotti re flects undeserved discredit upon the civ ilization and Government of Pern. He says: "It seems strange to me that Pen zotti was not bailed out of prison. He represents a wealthy body aud the priv ilege of bail is extended generally, being denied, of course, in capital offenses." PALACE CAR PATENTS. A Temporary Injunction Issued in Favor of tlio Wagner Con pany. Chicago, Jan. 20. —The Wagner Palace Car Company won a temporary victory over the Pullman Company to-day, in a decision by Judges Blodgettand Gresham, in a long-drawn-out vestibule case. In a recent case before Judge Coltin, ot the United States Circuit Court for Massachu setts, it was held that Wagner was in fringing on the Pullman patents, and an injunction was issued. Then Pullman asked that the Lake Shore and Michigan ('entral roads be enjoined from using the vestibule," but Judges Gresham and Blodgett to-day refused this until a full hearing can be had. The court hold that the patent granted Sessions in November, 1887. involved the same improvements, and that it was not shown that Pullman had a prior right to the patent The case, therefore, is still left open. Strike of Railway Employes. CHICAGO, Jan. 20.—The Chicago and Erie Railway has a serious strike on hand, the strikers being conductors and dispatchers. A month ago dispatcher Scott, at Huntington, md., made a serious mistake in giving an order, which was discovered in time to prevMit serious work. He was discharged. On the other dispatchers threatening to strike, the company changed the sentence t<> thirty days' suspension. Now it is al leged by the conductors and dispatchers thai Scott has been dismissed, and they notified General Manager Tucker of a strike, to begin to-night.

San Francisco, Jan. 20.—Tho State Board of Trade met at tho exhibition room in the Bancroft building this after noon. Eugene J. Gregory, of Sacramento, presided. The following were present: Joseph Emery of Alameda, T. J. Rice of Stanislaus, A. B. Caldwell of Stanis laus, J. K. Rapp of Contra Costa, Dr. Smith ol* Palermo, Erskin Greer of Sac ramento, R. B. Blowers of Woodland, Jesse 1). Carr of Monterey, W. H. Mills and John P. Irish of San Francisco, A Caminetti of Amador, J. X. Piatt of So lano and John Q. Brown, Managei. W. H. Mills reported that "California on W Heels" was at Seattle to-day. He had received information that a great many emigrants to that place have found that the country cannot be cleared rapidly enough to furnish them openings for a livelihood, and that the development of that section is not equal to tho immigra tion. Believing that a number of those emigrants could be persuaded to settle in California, he had sent three members of the board to aid the officials In the car dur ing its travel through the northern States on this coast. He suggested arranging cheap excursions from that place to this State. The report was approved. BT. G. Rice reported that he was gather ing statistics which would enable him to provide a clas of literature for emigration purposes which would equal that so dili gently given out by the people of the southern part of tho State. He also ' stated that he is endeavoring to direct emigration from the East to the San Joa quin and Sacramento Valleys, and break the monotony of seeing emigration con tinually directed to the extreme south- i crn part ofthe State. . John P. Irish said that his observation ' in the East led him to believe that Cali- ' fornia was not benefited by the literature ' sent there from the southern part of the ' State. The literature contains too much reference to tho production of tropical ' fruits, and does not, as it should, identify ' with tropical fruits the hardier fruits of the SUite. He advised that the literature I sent from northern sections should also ! contain reference to the production of tropical fruits. John P. Irish moved the adoption of a resolution favoring the readjustment of the assessment on growing trees and vinos in this State, inasmuch as the pres ent rate worked a hardship upon those who are necessarily without any revenue from their land until the trees and vines bear. The resolution was unanimously adopted. The following financial report was pre sented and approved: Balance on hand October 1, 1890, 81,7! _ 97; receipts for Oc tober, §1,731; for November, 81,198 50; for December, $1,838 85; total, §0,559 32. Disbursements for October, 81,410; for November, $1,375 70; for December, 81, --321 57; total, 84,107 27: balance on hand January 1, 1891, 82,452 05. The resolution of W. H. Mills, recom mending that, in case the Legislature . makes an appropriation for an exhibit at the World's Fair, that provision be made against the use of the money for sectional exhibits, was adopted. J. S. McCue. of Marin county, advo- ! cated that, instead of expending 830,000 upon an exhibit at the World's Fair that amount of money bo used to enlarge "California on Wheels" from three to ten cars. He argued that the traveling exhibit was taken to the doors of the people of the ' United States, while the World's Fair ex- ' Libit would be forgotten a day after it was » gazed upon. He moved that the Legis- < htture be petitioned to appropriate 830,000 1 a year for two years for the purpose of " advertising the resources of the State. " His motion was not approved. 1 OX THEIR TRAIL. Troops in Hot I"_rsuit of Cliqulto Smith's Murderers. I Los Anoei.es, Jan. 20.—A dispatch was ! received at the headquarters of the De- ; partment of Arizona te-day from Lien- j tenant Clark, in command of the detach- < ment of troops and Indian scouts in pur- ' suit of the band of Apaches who killed Cliquito Smith three days ago at Meises Canyon, just north of the Mexican bor der. A horse and one rifle that tho In- 1 dians were obliged to abandon have been I found. The trail is very fresh, and, tin- < less snow interferes, these Indians will lie < captured. J Smith was a lone rancher in the can- ! yon. He was killed In his house, and his body was horribly mutilated. The trail shows that there were three Indians in the party, and they are believed to be i renegades from Mexico, whither the trail • leads. j The army authorities here claim that the ] treaty with Mexico should lie so amended as to permit United States troops to cross the border. As it is now, they can cross only when in close pursuit of hostile In- , dians, and must return immediately upon losing the trail. CHURCH ROW. Warrants Out for the Arrest of Inter- . ested Parties.

Special to the Record-Uxion. I St. PETERsnuRG, Jan. 20.—A well- , known Jewish banker named Baron j Ginshurg last week waited on Durnovo, ' Minister of the Interior, and asked him . to try to alleviate or postpone the carry- | mg out of the edicts for the repression of the Jews. During the interview the Baron handed the Minister an envelope containing a check for one million roubles, payable to . the order of Durnovo, and indorsed by the Mendellsohns of Berlin. Durnovo subsequently gave the Czar the note. The Czar gave orders for tho an es-. of Baron Ginshurg.

Which Led to tho Present Troubles. • " York, Jan. 20.—A member ofthe ttrm of Grace A Co. was interviewed on the troubles now existing in Chile. Ho not make known his business dis ps bes, but stated that the Custom-houso "■■'•'• loaedand business at a standstill. "I <■ difficulty," he said, is simply this. Quitea considerable number of influen tii! mleans are dissatisfied with tho pies Mt electoral system, which, in point oi -. gives the retiring President tho appointment ot his successors. They havo petitioned President Balmaeeda to cull .ogether a constituent assembly to re vise tiie whole electoral system before tho coming election. This, it seems, he re fused to do; hence the troubles. We have no means of knowing wha4 the outcome -is ill be. Political principles divide tho country, yet we believe that the opponents ot General Balmaeeda are as disinterested and patriotic as he. We hope and be lieve the trouble will be arranged peace ably, but we feel assured that the credit ot the country and the foreign capital there invested are as safe in the hands of one party as with the other." IRELAND'S CAUSE. Substantial Progress Made Toward a Settlement of the Trouble. Paris, Jan. 20.—O'Brien says in answer to a question as to what had been the re sult of the conference with Dillon: "It is difficult, under the existing circum stances, to make any statement with respect to the conference, as it is still necessary for us to preserve silence in the matter. Dillon and myself are in lull agreement, have made substantial progress toward a settlement which will be satisfactory to the British, as well as to our own sentiment. There has not been a single day's needless delay. Wo shall not leave France without exhaust ing every effort for peace, and a very few days now must determine the result." Dillon signified his approval of this statement. The Duke of Bedford Suicided. ' London, Jan. 20.—The mystery sur rounding the death of the Duke of Bed ford has been cleared up.

Boston, Jan. 20.—Faneuil Hall was packed to-day with business men of Bos ton, gathered at the call of Mayor Mat- , thews, to formally protest against the free coinage of silver. A number of addresses were made. Gen- > eral T. A. Walker deprecated the admis- n sion into tho Union of new States to neutralize the influence of the older com munity. The freo coinage of silver is dishonest and destructive. The principal speech was mado by Hon. Edward Atkinson. Ho said, in part: "A small fraction of Senators from the remote border States have combined together as reuresentatives of the silver mines, rather than of the people, to force into circulation a dollar made of silver which will not meet the test by which tho just unit ol" value must be tried—a test by fire.The silver dollar is not a true standard. It may he worth seventy, eighty, ninety, or even a hundred cents for awhile, and yet no one can tell what it will be worth the next week, month or year. Such a dollar is not lit to be the standard, or unit of value of a great commercial nation. Faneuil Hall, he said, calls upon tho great West, and the great West will surely respond. We do not call upon sparsely settled border States, whose little product of the silver mines is not equal in value to the hens' eggs annually produced in the barn-yards of the country,and not even equal in value to the poultry and eggs of poor New England. "Thelarmers, workmen, manufacturers and all tho solid sense of this country are against the measure." In conclusion, Mr. Atkinson said: "Let us call upon the Executive and the Leg islature of the State to sec to it that an Act is passed to this end, that in all con tracts entered into after the passage of this Act, in which dollars are named tn promise, the courts shall construe that the dollar meant and promised is the best dollar that can be mode—a dollar in gold coin. "In this course we will be justified by law, by the action of California in another emergency, and the record of our great commonwealth, which throughout all time has maintained its promise according to tho intent and meaning of whatever tho law of the legal tender may have been. We shall be justified, again, by the act of our great country, first among nations, that of having issued, under the stress of war, its own notes for the purpose of col lecting a forced loan, and has paid, or stands ready to pay, the debt in the best dollar that can be coined—a dollar made otgcM or its equivalent."
