Some Complaint Against It From Los Angeles. Alleged Discrimination In Favor of Other Towns. Agont Sheperd Says the Charges Are Not Well Founded—Watsr Com. petition Responsible for the Changes. By the Associated Prew.l San Francisco, Feb. 13.—Referring to the dispatch from Loa Angelee that there waa conaiderable dissatisfaction with the new freight schedule of the Southern Pacific, which went into effect February Ist, Aaßistant General Freight Agent Shepard said: "Ab to the complaints from Los An geles, if thoae making them are really sincere in what they say, the simple fact of the matter ia that they are labor ing under a general misapprehension. In the dispatch which I have just read it is stated that all places on our lines in Southern California are placed on an equality with Loa Angelea, aa regards freight ratea from Southern California. That ia an incorrect statement to begin with. All placea on our lines are not placed on any auch equality. On the contrary, very many of them are not, as I can readily show. One of these points to which it is complained we have given aa low a rate as we have to Loa Angeles ia more or less direotly accessible by water. In that one fact the whole matter ia explained. We keep the rate down to thoae points to what it is simply because we have to do so in order to meet steamer competition. If we are to be in the fight for buainesa at all, we must be there to some pur pose. That ia only business. How much freight would we carry otherwise? No, no, there ia no idea of disenminat ing against Loa Angeles, and those who make the asaertion aimpl.y don't under stand the situation." "Another thing," continued Mr. Shep herd ; "before the new arrangement was made Loa Angeles never had the band ling of the shipments to other points that her buainesa men now think they ought to control. Consequently the freight to other cities went by sea and did not pass through Los Angeles at all. Now that it doea do bo, owing to our re duction in rates, they ace it going by, aa it were, and aeem to be awakening to the realization that they are missing something. Before they did not know that they were being hurt; but the changed conditions are certainly not Buch that we should be blamed for them." A PROWLER SHOT. How a Drunken Hwlea Met His Death Near Petaluma. Petaluma, Cal., Feb. 13.—Early this morning Jamea Gray, living six milea from town, shot and killed Paul Bettra mette, a Swisa, under the following cir cu mstunccs: Mrs. Gray was awakened about 2:30 by the movements of come person trying to get into the house. Her husband, being aroused, took a Bhotgun and went to the door. Opening the door, he or dered the intruder to leave, but the lat ter did not move. Gray, probably thinking there waa some plot to assas sinate him, then tired. The charge penetrated the heart and killed Bettra mette instantly. The officers were noti fied, and Gray gave Himself up. Bettra mette did not know Gray, and is be lieved to have been hunting another house while drunk. Gray is over GO years old. Bettramette was 35. AN UNKNOWN WRECK Sighted Off Oape Flattery-Supposed to Bo the Ship Detroit. Port Townsknd, Waeh., Feb. 18.— Since an nnknown wreck waa sighted off Cape Flattery ten days ago by the barkentine Retriever, four vessels, the Ivanhoe, Theobald, Klikital and Kenne bec, have arrived and report seeing the wreck. None of the vessels were close enough to determine her identity. The descriptions given seem to convey the impression that it is the Bhip Detroit. This presumption has gained consider able credence among shipping men, in asmuch 83 none of tbe vessels arriving lately reported speaking the Detroit. A tug which waß sent to cruise for the wreck baa returned and reporte that a succession of southerly and westerly gales and severe enow storms precluded the possibility of making a strict search. The tug Wanderer left tonight to con tinue the search. A BAD DEPUTY. He Was Drunk and Accepted a Bribe to Let the Itata Go. San Fbancisco, Feb. 13.—The Call prints an interview with U.

AN INTERESTING} TRIAL. Hugh O'Donnell Answering to the Charge of Murder. Pittsburg, Feb. 13.—8y far the most important of the Homestead riot trials is that of Hugh O'Donnell, chairman of the adviaoiy board and practically the whole of the advisory board, aa the oth ora submitted implicitly to his dictation, and all the atrikera looked to him as their unquestioned leader during the stirring timea immediately following the atrike. For aome cause, not fully dis closed, be fell from favor after a time, resigned from the advißory board, waa arrested soon afterward, and haa been in jail ever aince, bail being refused him. He looked pale and haggard in ttte prisoners' box this morning, as the re sult of his long confinement. The in dictment charges him with the murder of the J. C. Conners. He pleaded not guilty to the charge. The work of se lecting a jury was tedious and occupied the greater part of the morning. The afternoon was occupied with the presentation of the case by the prosecu tion and the hearing of evidence of sev eral witnesses who went over familiar ground.

Nicaragua Canal Discussion Begun in the Senate. Chicago's Entering Wedge for Corral ling the Earth—The Confirmation of Judge Jackson's Nomina tion Now Assured, By tbe Associated Press.] Washington, Feb. 13.—There w»9 a backset to the bill to admit the four ter ritories to statehood this morning, but Senator Carey, who haß the matter in charge, says it ia but a temporary de feat. Today, during the morning hour in the senate, Carey called up the bill to admit New Mexico, for the purpose of getting it before the aenate and order ing it printed. Piatt, chairman of the committee on territories, who is opposed to the admission of any more states at present, objected, and Carey forced the issue by moving that the bill be taken up. On a yea and nay vote his motion was defeated—3o to 14. Following ia tbe vote in detail: Yeas—Blackburn, Butler, Carey, Fel ton, Gordon, Harris, McPheraon, Mit chell, Palmer, Peffer, Pugh, Quay, Saw yer and Teller—total, 14. Nays—Berry, Blodgett, Brice, Caffery, Call, Cockrell, Coke, Callom, Dawes, Dolph, Faulkner, Fry, Gorman, Hoar, Hill, Hunter, Jonea of Arkansas, Mc- Millan, Manderson, Mills, Morrill, Paa coe, Piatt, Bherman, Stockbridge, Voor hees, Waßhburn, White and Wolcott— tttal, 30. There appearß to have been a fear on the part of some senatorß that Carey Bought to displace the Nicaragua bill, and thia is to some extent accountable for the vote. Some of the senators, par ticularly among the Democrats, will vote for the bill when the canal matter is out of the way. Carey sayß the opposition to the admission of territories had its votes present, and the friends of the bill did not. On a square vote, without any thing to interfere, he is confident the territories will be admitted. No further attempt wiil be made to get the bill up tuen under the agreement of the caucus he will call it up and expects to have a majority on hia side. TUB NICARAGUA CANAL BILL. The bill intended to aecure the con struction of the Nicaragua ship canal occupied the attention of the senate the greater part of the day. It provides that 8 per cent bonds of the company to an amount not exceeding $100,000,000 be guaranteed, principal and interest, by the government of the United States, said bonds to be issued according as money is actually paid out and expend ed by the company on the construction of the canal. The government is then to own the capital stock of the company, with the exception of $1,000,000 of it, which is to be retained by the company, and except shares to be delivered to the governments of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The importance of this guarantee by the government waa demonstrated in a speech by Frye, who undertook to Bhow that the canal Iwould be finally com pleted (with a guarantee), at a cost of $100,000,000, and that the fixed charges only would be $5,000,000 a year (outside of the sinking fund), whereas, without the guarantee, the coat would not be less than $200,000,000 and the fixed charges $14,000,000 a year. Morgan discussed the diplomatic feat ures of the measure. During the discussion of the bill, Mor gan expressed the opinion that there wae not now, and never waa, anything in the Clayton-Bulwer treaty to prevent the building of the canal. The bill went over until tomorrow. DOES CHICAGO WANT THE EARTH? Callotn introduced a joint resolution transferring to the state of Illinois, after the world's fair, the naval exhibit for use as an armory for the naval militia cf Illinois.

It is not known whether there will be any Berioua Democratic opposition. Tbe nomination was favor ably reported in the executive session today and went over. SILVER AGAIN TO THE KOBE. Representative Traeey of New York suggested today to Representative Ba con of tbe banking committee to insert in tbe national bank bill now in confer ence between the senate and house °a clause repealing the Sherman act, aB a means of getting it once more before congress, and also add such silver legis lation as may be deemed advisable.

It will atate that in the opinion of tbe delegates from thia country there wae a very much better feeling towards the ob jects ecught to be accomplished mani fested at the close of the conference than at its beginning. They hope for sub stantial results from the adjourned meeting at Paris.. Great Britain holds Vrbtaniß thliWiQtWiUiWsi^: from that country, except Currie, gives the United States delegates a substan tial basis for the hope that at the Paris meeting the attitude of Great Rritain will not be unfriendly, to silver.

Nathan Appleton of Boston testified that in 1879 he received a letter from De Lesseps, asking him to accept the posi tion of general agent of the canal com pany in thtß country. His idea was that ahares of the company should be placed on sale by the national banks of this country. The estimated cost of the ca nal was $240,000,000. In 1880 a sub scription for $00,000,000 ot stock wae opened in this country and was a great success. The amount was covered three times over. At that time he had not heard of the American committee. He had drawn a salary of $4000 a year as general agent of the com pany ever since, through the banking house of J. Sc. W. Seligman. To earn tbis salary he did all he eculd to pro mote the interests of the project by writing articles for the papers, having himself interviewed, etc. * He did not know what inducements were offered to Thompson to give un the secretaryship of the navy and accept the presidency of the American company.

Gladstone Introduces the Fa- raons Measure. Grandest Effort of the Grand Old Man's Life. An Exposition of the Bill of TWO Hours' Duration. The Home Listens with Rapt jAttentlan —He Concludes With a Perora tion of Remarkable Mlo qnence. By Iho Associated Press. < London, Feb. 13.—Gladstone slept well last night, woke refreshed thia morning and anticipated with pleasure the exertion of the day in opening the debate on the home rule bill. Front early morning the scene around the palace yard at Westminster was of a most animated description, crowds as sembling to witnes3 the arrival of the members. At noon the inner lobby waa packed with members and the approach*] were crowded. When the doors were opened there waß a disorderly rash for eeatß, the members ehoutingand strag gling like a mob of excuraiOniata. The veteran member Caleb Wright wae; borne down, ttampled on and with diffi culty rescued. When Gladstone entered the house at 5:30, he waa greeted by prolonged andV. enthusiastic cheers by the Liberal and Irish members. A quarter of an hoar latter, when he rose to introduce tbe home rule bill, there was another dem onstration laating several minutes. Gladstone's speech. Gladstone spoke as follows in a clear, etrong, ree onant voice: "I may without impropriety remind the house that the voices which usually pleaded the cause of Irish self-govern ment in Irish affairs, have within these walls during the last seven years, been almost entirely mute. I return there fore to the period of 1880 when a propo sition of this kind was submitted or the part of the government of the day, and I beg to remind the house of the posit on then taken by all the promoters of t sag measures. We Bald we had arrived at a point in our transactions with Ireland where the roada parted. 'Yon have,' we said, 'to choose one or the other, One n..j nnnrti autonomy, accord ing to the conceptions I b»v» jus* referred j to; the other the way of coercion; that is our contention.' It will ba the recollection of the house how that contention wag moßt stoutly denied. It was said over and over again by many of the members opposite: 'We are not coercionists. We do not adopt that alternative and neither can we adopt it.' [Ministerial cheers.] That assertion of theirß was undoubtedly sus tained by proposals, especially from dis sentient Liberals of various plans, deal ing with Irish affairs. Thoae plans, though they fell entirely abort in the principle and in acope of Irish self-gov ernment, yet were of no trivial or mean importance. They went far beyond what had heretofore been usually pro posed in the way of local self-govern ment for Ireland. "Well, what has been the result ot the dilemma as then put forward on this Bide of the house and repelled by the others Has onr contention that the choice lay between autonomy and coercion been jaatified or not? [Liberal cheers.] What has become of each and all those important schemes for giving Ireland self-government in the provinces and giving her even a central establish ment in Dublin with limited powers? All have vanished into thin air, but the reality remains; the roada are atill there; autonomy and coercion the choice lay between, and the choice made was to repel autonomy and embrace coercion. "You cannot always follow coercion in an absolutely uniform method. For the first time coercion was imposed on Ireland in the shape of a permanent law added to the statute book. This state of things constituted an offending against the harmony and traditions ol self-government. There wae a distinct, violent breach of promise, on the faith of which union was obtained. That permanent system of repression inflicted upou the country a state of things which could not continue to exist. It was impossible to bring the inhabitants of tlie country under coercion into sympa thy with tbe coercive power." ENGLAND'S BROKEN PROMISES. Gladstone proceeded to dilate aft length upon the circumstances under which the act of union passed, declar ing that it was under the promise of equality in laws andcommercial equality that union was effected. It was then prophesied confidently, he said, that Irishmen would take their places in the cabinet of the United Kingdom, but it had been hie honored destiny to sit in cabinets with no less than 60 to 70 statesmen, of whom only one, the duke of Wellington, wbb an Irishman, while Caßtlereagh waa the only other Irish man who had eat in the cabinet Bince the union. Pitt promised equal lawa when the union was formed, but the broken promises made to Ire-' land were unhappily written in indelible characters in the hiatory of the country. Coming to 1832, when the reaurrection of the people began, thence down to 18S0, Ireland could preaent only a email minority in favor of restoring to her Bomething in the nature of constitu tional rights and practical self-govern ment. ...w ta niS. me .»ston'Bhino;,» he eaid, that bo little weight ie attached by many to the fact that before 1886, before 1885 indeed, the Irish wishes of self-govern ment were represented only by a small minority. Bince 1885, when a wide ex tension of the franchise, protected by the secret ballot, waa made, Ireland's position has been improved in parlia ment. In 1886 there were 86 National ists among the 100Irwh members of par lament. or more than fUe-eithths. [Cheers.] They have been reduced from
