Associated Press Dispatches to the Uibald'
San Francisco, June 23.—The wir.e
rates from California to Atlantio sea
board poiuts are greatly disturbed. A
few weeks ago the Atlantic and Paoitte
began to ship wine from Los Angeles to
New York for $ 1 a hundred pounds, the
traffic rate from all California poiuts
being $1.25. The Sunset agents knew
nothing of the cut until recently, wheu
they began to quote a dollar rate from
all points in this State. Tito Atlantic
and Pacific maintained the tariff rates
here for a day or two and then swung
out with a 96 cent rate. Tbe Union
Pacific, Southern Pacific and other lines
have met tbe cut, and wine going east
nf.w, all goes at the rate of 96 oeut9 per
hundred pounds. It is stated that all
shipments now made are billed out ot
this city ut full tariff rates, the shipper
receiving a rebate of 29 cents a hundred.
The proportion of the through rate re
ceived by lines between this city and
Chicigo is only 64J cents, as the Kastern
trunk lines come in for their full pro
portion of 25 per cent, of the tariff rates
of $1.25. They will accept nothing
A TARIFF ESTABLISHED.
A meeting of general-freight agents of
the East-bound roads was held at the
offiae of the Atlantic and Pacific Com
pany this morning. Tho object of the
meeting was to fix a tariff ou wine and
brandy, as the rate of late has not been
uniform on all roads, although the state
ment is denied that there has been any
snob outing of rates as was alleged in a
-morning contemporary? The session as
usual, was executive, but at its conclu
sion information was given tbat an uni
form rate had been made, which will go
into effect immediately. Tlie tariff
agreed upon is as follows: wine, in the
wood, carload lots, $1 por pound to New
York and SOo to Chicago, St. Louis and
Missouri River points. Brandy, in the
wood, carload lots, $1.25 per pound to
New York and $1 per pound toChicsgo,
St. Louis and Missouri River poiuts.

Wherever introduced as from Califor
nia the first inquiry made of him
was: "From California? Ah, indeed!
What address?" "Sacramento." "Sac
ramento, eh ? Hew far is that from
Los Angeles or Pasadena?" With
only rare exceptions, he reports, did
he meet people who had any intelligent
idea of Central and Northern California,
and yet his business took him among
people of intelligence, and supposed to
be of broad information. What we
need to do for our share of duty s>
making the future of this "great empire
of the West" eclipse its past, and to
"make available" the inexhaustible re
rources of the central aud north
ern section, is to drees the land in its
best, prepare tbe table for guests, and
send out the invitation. We repeat, it
will be by preparation alone tbat we can
win. If we sit idly by and trust to
the possession of great resources by the
land to advertise our heritage unaided,
or for immigration to come to us unin
vited; or once here to remain with us
without hading plaoea prepared for it,
we will suffer keen disappointment.

F. A. Botsch, telegraph operator of

The cross-examination shook tbe wit

Continuing, Ibe witness said: ''I was
present when Simmons turned the hotel

sented his case as that of a man who had
been sentenced and had been forced to
appeal, without any idea but that the
result was a foregore conclusion, and
tbat he would bo snubbed and insulted
by the propaganda. He assaults the
church iv Rome as a "Romish machine"
and closes as follows: "The engineers
of tho machine, who are profiting by its
power and its emoluments, are really
laughing in their sleeves at us for onr
excessive generosity in contributing Pe
