There is not a single range on which tbe death rate was not fully that great, and a great many of them will .equal seventy-five five per cent.

Gladstone's Opinion of the Coercion [Bill. ' PASTEUR'S INOCCULATION. A Storm of Wrath Raised in Eag laiid and Ireland by the Coercion Project. Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. Lo ni>on, March 29. —Gladstone re sumed the debate on the Irish criminal law amendment and was loudly cheered when he rose. He said an isane of so grave a proposal as was now put forth by tbe government, required ample time for consideration. He found himself bonnd to support Parnell's amendment because the ground on which Balfour based the government's case was abso lutely insufficient and unsatisfactory. The government's bill, instead of being a cure for Irish ills or even a palliative,) would aggra vate the deep seated and worst disorders. With this ooeroion bill, ex claimed Gladstone, the prospect of con ciliation vanished into air. The govern ment intended to exclude the land bili, whioh was the main recommendation of the commission whioh has just com pleted an exhaustive investigation of the Irish question. Every Irish and English member should have the fullest information for presenting his views (cheers) and for scrutinizing the proposals of the government. Among its most insulting and exasperat ing proposals the worst ever submitted to parliament was tbe provision that Irish trials be held in London. He never knew such a blow at the national feeling of Ireland. The government could de vise nothing more likely to aggravate every existing event as to demand the permanent duration of this bill. The proposals made ones blood boil. To establish what was formerly only a temporary remedy as a permanent rule of existence of society in Ireland, would put the brand cf inferiority upon Ire land forever, recognizing as a fixed prin ciple that force was a remedy. The les son of many Irish showed that force was no remedy since ihe election of 1885; since tbe bulk of Liberals had judged it both right and safe to grant Home* Rule to Ireland, she had been free from orime and outrage, a condition long un known. Why was this? Because the Irish people knew that a large, though insufficiently large, body of legislators represented their interests and would abide with them to the last. (Cheers.) If the Liberals acceded to the appeals of the Government, the result would be retrogression. The Irish people would return to a state of things which the Liberals' efforts had already partly rem edied. So long as Ireland continued in the present course of moderation, so long would the Liberals be bound to persevere in their endeavor to assist her. The time would soon come when to many, now supporting the cause of Ire land, would be added many more; when , deplorable proposal', such as these, of the government would no more be asso- , ciated with the name of Ireland and when it would be seen that iv doing j what they could now to serve the Irish ! cause they were observing the cause of . the wide empire of Great Britain. [Pro- . longed cheering ] Goschen taunted Gladstone on his alliance with the National League. He asked him how he would continue to meet the League's constantly increasing demands until ab solute separation should be completed. Everybody but the allies of the League considered the state of Ireland intolera ble. PASTEIR'N SYSTEM Of Inoculation for Tattle Not Recommended In England. Lonlon, March 29 —The Rt. Hon. Lord John Manners, vice-president of the , Committee of the Council on Agricul ure, stated, in response to interrogatories iv ; the House of Commons this afternoon, 1 that the governmental inquiry into Pas- 1 teur's method of inoculating cattle for 1 tho prevention of anthrax and o her • diseases was making progress, but that the results so tar obtained would not justify the Department of Agriculture in recommending tho farmers to inoculate i according to Pasteur's fystern. .1 INDItiNANT LIBERALS. The Coercion BUI Arouses a Storm Amongst mauy Classes. London, March 29 -Gladstone's speech is widely commented upon as an effective exposure of the feebleness of the govern ment's reasons for demanding ooercion. The btrength of his reasoning is ad mitted by the Conservatives and felt keenly by the Unionists and Liber als, many of whom threaten to recede uuless the Coercion bill be reduced to simple provisions against boycotting and the plan of the campaign. The Con servatives already talk of dropping the proposals relating to the transfer of jury trials, especially since the Unionist pa pers in the provinces declare them untenable. Gladstone re renewed bis defiance of the government to attempt to enforce the cloture. The Gladstonians are confident that they can delay the passage of the bill until May, and in the meanwhile are hopeful that a revolution of events will throw down the whole scheme. Whips on each side have forbidden members to be absent during the holidays unless paired. Radicals and Socialists throughout the country are passing strict resolutions against the Coercion bill, pronouncing it impolitic and unjust. The English Radical press denounces the measure in language of passionate indignation. Sent to Jail. Dublin, March 29.—Father Ryan, of the Herbertown branch of the National League, presented himself to-day before Justioe Bord, of the Bankruptcy Court. He persisted in his refusal to tell the Court what he knew about the doings of tenants in his parish respecting the trust ing of their rents under the Plan of Campaign and was condemned to orison. When Father Ryan emerged from the court as a prisoner he was met by a mul titude of eitisens. They numbered many thousands and they oheered tbe priest wilh enthusiastic and prolonged applause. They then followed him in a procession to the jail, making his tour a triumphant one. A number of promi nent men took part In this procession, and among the more oonipicuous were Lord Mayor Sullivan and Archbishop Croke. BEAUTIFUL ARCADIA. FOREIGN. E. J. Baldwin* New Town Un der Way E J. Baldwin's Santa Anita ranch is undoubtedly the most beautiful place in Los Angeles county. No visitor to Southern California considers his trip complete without an inspection of the home place and at least a portion of the immense domain. It has always been Mr. Baldwin's intention to subdivide a portion of his raneli and sell off thirty or forty thousand acres of it to settlers and also to establish a city or two. This gentleman has been so much engaged with his great stables, distillery and other things that he delayed carrying out his intentions. Another reason for the delay was that Mr. Baldwin wished to furnish to his cities the finest water supply on the American continent. To that end he has by a won derful feat of engineering and with great labor and expense built a pipe line from a point very far np in the Santa Anita canon, and now has water galore. And such water! Why, if this God-given fluid were piped to Los Angeles aud distributed in the city, the saloons would lose half their cus tomers, and water drinking would be come fashionable. ARCADIA, The water being secured Mr. Baldwin laid ont a city on the San Gabriel Valley road, about four miles this fide of Mon rovia and just north of (he beautiful Santa Anita avenue, and to this city he applied the euphonious name of Ar cadia. It ia one of the most delightful spots imaginable for a town, and as it is pretty certain that the A. T. & S. F. branoh will pass this point and the Southern Pacific be not far off, it looks as if it would make a thriving business city in the very near future. At present the city consists of a sign under a huge spreading oak tree, but in four days about three hundred lots have been sold aud the surveyors are having hard work to keep up with the agent, Mr. H. A. Unruh, in his Bales. Plans for the depot are prepared and the order is now in a Los Angeles mill and the work will commence at once. A large planing mill will be erected near the depot and contracts are being let for several busi ness houses. Tue S int.i Anita Perfum ery manufactory and flower farm is situ ated in Arcadia. The ground has been plowed for the reception of the flowering plants, anil the lumber is on the ground for the erection of buildings. THE GRAND HOTEL. The crowning glory of the whole en terprise, However, is tbe magnificent hotel to be erected by Mr. Baldwin at the head of Santa Anita avenue. The site is on a level plateau near the mouth of the canon, and commands to-day the most beautiful view in California. It is away above the surrounding country and one can see Catalna Islands and almost everything else. The build ing itself will be four stories high, of granite, from a quarry near by, and will cost over $500,000. Aside from this, Mr. Baldwin intends to spend vast sums in beautifying tbe grounds, opening np romantic spots in the mountains, etc. Yesterday fifty men began work on the grounds, one feature of which is an orange or chard of 100 acres. This will be plant ed at once. There are many beautiful little c i iions near the hotel, and it is the in ration to build trails and roadways and make every attractive spot easy of access. There will always be something fresh and interesting to see and some plaoe to go, and the lucky guest of the Hotel Santa Anita will never find tbe time hang heavily on his hands. Mr. Baldwin has started in on an era of improvement, and says in a very determined way that he will make his hotel the most charming place in the State, if money and enterprise will <io it. This gentleman is taking less interest in traveling over the continent, and is thinking more of inakiDg the surroundings of bis home, where lie expects to spend the grea er portion of his years, attractive. His various enterprises iv the development of the region in which he lives will give employment to a vast army of workmen, and put in circulation large sums of money. Tliiy will also assist in spread ing the fame of Los Angeles county abroad, to which his world known Santa Ainita ranch lias so materially added. One Lung Horses. Probably the moat remarkable horse ever known iv English mrf annnls is Or- ! monde, the property of the Duke of Westminster, lie is one of the few horses which, in the past huudndy<ars, have carried off all three of the great English three-year-old events, the fturhy, the St. Lt-ger and the Two Thousand Guineas, aud from the ease with which he won, he is rated a better horse than any of the others which preceded him in the accomplishment of this triple feat. Turfmen have been wont to regard him as the greatest horse of tho cen tury, and now he has turned a "roarer." That is, his lungs are affected, and in galloping he makes a sort of stertorous noise. Consequently the hopes which his owner anticipated for him as the progenitor of a magnificent utrain of racing stock are blasted, for be will not care to breed to a horse i ttlioted with a malady which he inherited from Prince Charlie and others of his fleet footed and blue blooded ancestors. Neither will he run another race, and the Duke of Westminster is said to be about to sell him to go to Australia where the climate is good for horses with weak and noisy lungs. Before it was discovered that Ormonde was diseased, his owner was offered SI no, ■ 000 for him, bnt of course he is not worth anything like that i gure now. The point we wish to make is that if Australia is climatically good for weak lungs California is better, and if this magnificent thoroughbred could be se cured by some of our great breeders he might be the sire of a splendid line of thoroughbreds, Los Angeles migbt beoome the home of the one lung horse with a propensity to snore in his waking moments. Suppose our amiable friend E. J. Baldwid should have an in spiration to add Ormonde to his Santa Anita stud he might add a divine afflatus to the Los Angeles boom. Colonel Otis, of that favored country, has prophesied the coming of "the modern Homer" of the South, and we should not be sur prised If his divine afflatus turned out a horso snore. Nevertheless, it might be proper to have Ormonde vaccinated by Dr. Simpson in advance.—[Oakland Tri bune. J. Marion Brooks. The President did well in appointing J.

PARNELL APPEALS To the Great American People FOR SUPPORT AND SYMPATHY" On Behalf of Ireland—John Pitt- Gerald, of Lincoln, Neb., Sends a Beply. Associated Press Dispatches to the H ska LB. Lincoln-, Neb., March 29.—1 he fol lowing cablegram was received by Hon. John Fitzgerald to day, and tLo follow ing reply sent to Parnell: House of Commons. \ London, Marou 29, 1887,/ To Hon. John Fdzgerald, Lincoln, Ne braska : The Coercion bill proposed lo-night is the Uonse of Commons, is the eighty seventh since the act of the Union, eighty-seven years ago. It is also the mist stringent, tyrannical and uncdledfor by the state of affairs in Ireland. Never before has a coercion bill been proposed when crime was so rapidly decreasing, as compared with the previons years. The measure is aimed against all open agitation aad appears to be u.t «!y designed for driving-discontent beneath the surface. It places all public speakers, writers aad conductors of newspapers absolutely at the mercy of the Riipendiary mifriatratee, holding ibeir office at the p oasure of the Crown. It consigns the !r ak ing peasant, of rack-rented Iwry to the tender mercies ol packed juries of Orangemen or landlords, or to a jury of Ergli-limen ut the nl.i Bailey in London. The L iteral party, hcade i by Ghidsto ie, stands ii3 one man against this measure, and will tight shoulder to shoulder with us iu opposing it, to the last. It seems impoestble to believe that even the pres ent House of Commons will continue to follow the Tory government in their mad course, and good judges con - ider that the measure wiii be wc.:k ami wiii ruin the Cabinet. We mas', however, prepare for the worst, uud I confidently appeal to the American people for that sympathy and support which they have never withheld from a people struggling for its liberty, (Sigued) Parnkll. Lincoln, Neb., March 29, 1887. Hon. Chan. F. ParneU, M. P, Hottse of Commons, London .—Yoar cablegram is received, Tue League will redouble its efforts. Ireland is sure of Amerioan sympathy and support in tbe coming crisis. The Nebraska Legislature to-day, by a unanimous vote passed resolutions of sympathy with Ireland and condemns the policy of Coeicion. This and , similar manifestations throughout this free country give the lie to the (landers of the English press that true Americans do not sympathize with Ireland. This great liberty-loving people of the United States is entirely in sympathy with Ireland's struggle for home rule. (Signed) John Fitzgerald, President. (•eneral Ripley's Death.

Committee. Our Own Knox. Following is extracted from a privttc letter written by a gentleman who is wedded to the interest! of Los Angeles: Oroville, Msrch 27, 1887. "I write to you to give you a little in formation as to how one Knox, Assem blyman from Los Angeles, encourages the smallpox epidemic in his oounty, He and General Brierly are wandering around the northern portion of this State with the Normal School commission and Knox tells everybody that he does not intend to go back until the smallpox is over. I don't suppose that very many of us down there will care very much if he never oomes back. Now he is a pretty representative to have. I don't know why it is, but I never get away from Los Angeles but my patriotism is : awakened. I wish you would let tho people know what sort of a gentleman they sent to the Assembly." Fresno. The Expositor says: One of our en terprising citizens who passes the ted loos hours away by running a hotel, tho asm works, a vineyard and an alfalfa ranch, found a little spare time on bis hands day before yesterday and went out and negotiated the sale of $88,000 worth of real estate. He said he would become a> real estate agent U be nadaUtUeUeinr* time. j
