EniTOit Nineu: Please allow me the
privilege through the columns ot" your pa
per to say a few words in favor of a Fence
Law for Yavapai County, and also to notice
an article published in the Minek of the
1st inst., headed "No Fence Law," and
First, I will drop a hint to aspirants for
Legislative honors, that if they want un
vote, let them give me assurance that they
will use their best endeavors to enact for us
a proper Fence Law. This will draw to
their support numbers who share alike with
me objections to the law as it now exists.
But while this No Fence Law is in force,
and my neighbor claims protection for his
crop from my stock, I certainly can do no
less than claim that same protection for iny
"Countryman" starts off with "No Fence
Law," but sincerely I believe it ia one word
for Xo Fence and two to justisy himself in
public opinion in thu part he played in de
feating the plaintiff in obtaining just dues
from the defendant in the suit which he re
fers to I being the plaintiff in that suit.
Again, be speaks of the grand monopoly,
and how the plaintiff had his crop scattered
for three miles from East to West, aud thereby
keeping stock men from occupying the
lands. Now the real truth is this: The
plaintiff did commence to plant a crop
some three miles West, but saw that it was
too much exposed to stock, and abandoned
it, going about three miles East and putting
in a crop on unsurveyed lands. That is the
same and onlv crop the plaintiff has or ever
had that he claimed damage for.
He ("Countryman") says, "it being un-

SUTVCYea ianar UI uuiaiunuu oicri.. "
much rich ts there as the plaintiff's crop of
rnm had We fail to see it in that light,
from the facts that the defendant and his
stock were in California at the tirao this
crop was planted by plaintiff, but the dc
fendant drove his stock to this locality and
they did the damage, as proven. Further
more, there is no other way to appropriate
loruse unsurveyed land than by takin
possession und occujmnff the same until
surveyed and placed in market, and we be
lieve that the law will protect personal
property upon United States lands, as well
as on lands belonging to actual settlers; and
as our experience has been both unprofitable
and unpleasant so far as the operations of
the existing .No Fence Law is concerned, we,
of the Juniper Mountain Country, say: Hur
rah for the Legislators who will give us a
good, substantial Fence Law !
