feel that the new stock law, which

being transported to St. Louis
would tfe tliink for a moment that
they stayed in the cars unlass it
was specifically stated that they
were unloaded. But would inita '
be a legal dc-tinntion for cattle.
The destination is also implied in
transnortation. We would not.
tliink of transported cattle as going
on forever unless it was specifically
stated that they .stepped somewhere
If transportation is lawful and
Council lias nothing to do with
destinations out side of the Chero
kee Nation, it follows that destina
tions within it must be lawful.
It seems to us that the pur
pose of the law is most cvi-,
dent- It is to prevent the cattle !
lever. If it be true that cattle, CHELSEA, I.
shipped nx never cause tne lever,
then the doing so would not con
travene the puqiosc and the spirit
of the law. A decision on this
point by the Cherokee Stock As

ue. Nevertheless the law seems
to have meant to prohibit the in- " "

driven as early as April 1st. So

iiielmyfn'rof cattle jt a5, except
at such, risks as to make it imprac
ticable. It is further claiai"d by
lhem that April 1st is uuut-ces-ar-

will discuss the objections to the
law nest week.
Blackleg and Salt,
A correspondent, writing from
Sleplijas county, states that black-
Ijf early- Large numbers of cattle I leg, more or less, has prevailed
iuvebecn shiiipcd in 3fay, it is ! amongst the range cai-tlc, but with-
claiiEed, without causing the cattle
cveau.tliat there is no necessity
$oz making tlic date earlier than
iCay 1st, or even IJaylth. They
,claiTV, farther, that the cattle fjever
h&s never been caused by cattle
shipped Into the country qver the
Section 5 of the law comes in for
a generous share of objection. It
provides that every citizen owning
fifty head of cattle must regi&tor
his brand, and then declares all cat
tle bcarins unregistered brands
Krays, and provides for their sale.
It is claimed that this law virtually
connscaics all tDe cattle of the poor j
who have not so much as fiftv head.
It Is objected to Sec. S, that it
aces not define a legal fence, or
jnake any allusion to, or provide
Sot, the application of any law with
regard to fences. It is thought that
ihis omission in the law will surely
work trouble, and likely injustice
-to owners of stock.
The above arc some of the ob
jections wc have heard to tlic new
tock law. Next week wc intend
io give a. full discussion of it we
have not hpacc or dma this wcok.
.Some of the objections seem to
Lave orcc, but some of them will
jiotljo sustained, wa think,by earo
ttil investigation and dirfuIon.
JAre will discuss the whole mutter
fully next week.
ie feayc been asked lo give our
opinion on (he latter pait of See. 2
nf thjs low, which providos for the
transportation qf cattle over the
railroads in the Cherokee Nation.
We. arc asked if that clause does
not permit the shipment of cattle
into ihp cquntry by railroad at any
lime. Wc cannot give an opinion
.without more time than is at our
disposal this week. The following
has been handed us, which we will
print, and Tcply next week :
" 1 The law hinges on the word
i'transport." It is derived from
ixo Latin words trant, meaning
acrcss, and porta, to earn'. So that
lie rcrd literally means "to carry
across.1' The law law then tech
nically provides only for carrying Leighton.s
pattle across the country. But has '-"Wedded "
out serious loss. "Without going
into thegcncral treatment for black
leg, it might not be amiss to state
that blackleg would be less common
it ranchmen were more liberal with
salL It is within the limits of
truth to assert that Texas stock,
outside of the alkali rcgions,do not
get one-tenth the salt requiroc for
their proper development, and get
none at all in the Yinler, when it
is most necessary. The whole dufy
in salting stock does not consist of
an unusual liberality at calf-roundups
in the Spring, buj- constant
salting with a liberal hand the
whole year through. Rock salt is
belter than common salt, because
it can be usek to I ?tter advantage,
with less waste and trouble. Texas
