Journal.During the few years of ln-^ftbUtty of the state to pay the |ir^Hriit^lummy the peats have Increased to^ouch 1111 1 \tent an to seriously menace^the live stock tmhistry and mwttlu^must be don.. The loss In young stock^eacli year Is sslU to run as high as IB^per cent., and while all agtW that^somethiiiR must l^- done, the question^what to do Is the one which has to be^solved by the legislature thai inn-ts In^January. It Is the duty of the stock-^men. who nre virtually Interested, to^decide what they think Is the best plan^to adopt, and then by systematic work^to endeavor to get a satisfactory law.^which will receive the govrrnor's^nature, through the legislature.
IVoathe inlnlnir counties there will^be a strong opposition to any appropri^^ations from the general fund for^bounty purposes. Though the argu^^ment ran 1m^ made that the live stock^and farming Interests pay the taxes^while the mining Interests escape that^burden. It will have little avail as long^as those Interests have the votes of the^legislature. The live stock men and^farmers ^get the worst of It^ but they^have to take It.
Therehas been some speculation as^to the kind of a MM that could be get^through the legislature, and one has^been submitted which Is so be Intro,^dueed before the legislatures .'f Mon^^tana, Wyoming. North and South l^a^kota. this winter, after suggestions, cor^^rections, annotations and advice of^st;K knien has been received.
Thebill was prepured, in the rough,^hy H. M Allen, manager of the Stand^^ard Cattle company, who has through^his Interest In the matter.started the ball^U^ rolling. Cattlemen and farmers are^asked to make any changes or sugges^^tions so that the bill when formed for^presentation to the legislatures of the^states Interested, may be found to be^uniform In working through the largest^possible area of country, and satisfac^^tory to the Interests affected.
Th-bill provides that for the pur^^pose of encouraging thp destruction of^coyotes, gray and black wolves and^mountain Hons. In the state of Mon^^tana, the boards of commissioners of^the various OOaattSfl are authorized and^requested to make payment from a^fund to be raised by special levy, for^each coyote killed. $1; for each gray or^black wolf killed, tx, lind for each^mountain Hon killed, IB. Th^ funt^from which the sums mentioned slur1^be paid as bounty shall be cn-at-d and^raised by a special levy of ten mills,^which shall be laid upon the total val^^uation of sheep and cattle. It Is in^^tended, and must he so understood, that^this special levy Khali be laid in ad^^dition to the kVJT for state and general^county purposes. The above mentioned^special levy shall be collected tor the^til st time up. in the assessment for the^year 18113, and no certificates or war^^rants Issued previous to Jan 1, 1896,^shall he paid from the fund raised by^the state levy. After Jan. 1, 1M)6. the^bounty on coyotes, wolves and moun^^tain lions killed shall be paid from th*^isald fund: and In case the said fund^shall become exhausted before a new^tax for the following year shall apply,^the certificates or warrants shall Da^paid from the tax of each succeeding^year, as soon as the tax has been col^^lected.
Afew suggestions have been made by^stockmen who have read the bill which^will Is' given to assist those In con^^sidering the matter who feel so dis^^posed.
FirstLeave the present bounty law^standing as It Is. but have an appropri^^ation mude to pay warrants issued un^^der It. Then have enacted the above^law, or one similar to It, to be In effect^und op. i live at the same time.
Ssoondamrtabill suggested Is ambig^^uous, as it does not provide an author^^ity to snake the levy. The power should^be reposed in either the board of county^commissioners of each county, or In the^state tioard.
ThirdTber* should not be such a^difference between the bounties of coy^^otes and wolves. The wild cat could^well ha cut out and the money go on^to the bounty of coyotes.
NowIs the time for the stockmen nnd^farmers to formulate their Ideas and^get them Into such shape that a united^mi . .insistent fight may lie made for^a measure of protection that is due^such lartM Interests. Everybody who is
nota miner Is Interested In the passage^of such a law and the miner's wife Is^Interested In It If she has any chick^^ens or pigs.

marly always effect a cure In one^night ^ time. This remedy Is also a^favorlta for rheumatism und has cured^many very severe eases. fiO-cent bot-^, Ilea for sale by all druggists.

LandAgent Hickman Talks o^ th, AgiicuS^tural College Crant.
Forseveral months,'' said Slate Land^Ac. nt It iv Hickman to an Independent^reporter, ^criticisms have been made hy^pin tles who reside al Hcneinan and in that^vicinity, and who should be better In^^fo, nn.I, (hi t the state board of hind^coninitnlssloners had located the agricul^^tural land In the ilnllatlu valley near^win re the College of Agriculture and Me-^etaat. Arts Is located, and placed them^to the seeotmt of the grants for public^buildings and the state normal school,^and had gone off a considerable distance^t ^ sekaM Inn.Is to till the agricultural col^^lege grant, greatly to the detriment of^that Institution.
Forthe Information of these parties,^and all others not knowing the facts, I^will stale that In September and October.^IHK, or several months prior to the loca^^tion of the college at Itoiemsn, the Hon.^Cranvllle Stuart, then acting as state land^agent, visited IVaverhead. tlalletln and^Haiti nan counties and selected atiotlt^cm rythUsSj he cosldered desirable. He re^^ported the same to llov. Toole, then pres-^lih nl of the hourd of land commissioners,^and the land so selected was by the board^ai portioned to the sewral different^grants.
IfIt happened that the Agricultural^college did not receive Its full share of the^agricultural lands of tiallutln county,^neither the present nor the former board^of land commissioners, nor anyone con^^nected then with are to blame, for, as^you know, the college was not located un^^til a number of months after the lands In^ipu st Ion had been select ^d. Had the lands^la liallatln county been credited to the^Agricultural college grant, and the col^^lege Itself heen located at Missoula, Oreat^Falls, Hillings or Miles City, the same^criticism could have heen made.

Thus.Cruse, quite recently, got returns^from thirty-live head of cattle sold In^Omnha. As he had made no shipment ot^beef cattle this season he was at a loss^to understand the matter.
