A OUNrTY LAW I # PROP e,
It WM Prsented to the Comktg Legisla
atwo by Representtivet From the
During the last campaign the burn
Ing question in the cow countles of the
state, am they are called, ws the mat
ter of a bounty on wolves and other
stock destroying animals, and a bounty
1-W' to encourage the extermination of
these pests of prey is one of the chief
subjects that will engage the attention
of the lawmakers at Helena at thisu
coming session, snyn the Stock Growers'
Journal. During the few years of In
ability of the state to pay the present
bounty the pests have Increased to
such an extent as to seriously menace
the live stock Industry and something
must be done. The loss in young stock
each year Is said to run as high as 26
per cent., and while all agree that
something must be done, the question
what to do I. the one which has to be
solved by the legislature that meets in
January. It Is the duty of the stock
men. who are virtually interested, to
decide what they think is the best plan
to adopt, and then by systematic work
to endeavor to get a satisfactorg law.
which will receive the governor's sig
nature, through the legislature.
From the mining countles there will
be a strong opposition to any appropri
ations from the general fund for
bounty purposes. Though the argu
ment can be made that the live stook
and farming lnterests pay the taxes
while the mlnlng ltterests 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 "'et the worst of It" but they
have to take It.
There has been some speculation as
to the kind of a bill that could be got
through the legislature, and one has
been submitted which is to be intro.
duced before the legislatures of Mon
tana, Wyoming, North and South Da
kota, this winter, after suglestliona cor
rections, annotations and advis of
stockmen has been received.
The bill was prepared, in the rough,
by R. M. Allen, nmnager of the Stand
ard Cattle company, who has through
his interest in the matter,started the ball
to 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.
The bill provides that for the pur
pose of encouraging the destruction of
coyotes, gray and black wolves and
mountain lions, In the state of Mon
tana, the boards of commissioners of
the various counties are authoriaed and
requested to make payment from a
fund to be raised by special levy, fot
each coyote killed. 81; for each gray or
black wolf killed, $8, tnd for each
mountain lion killed, $6. The fund
from which the sums mentionel shall
be paid as bounty shall be created 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 be so understood, that
this special levy shall be laid In ad
dliton to the levy for state and general
county purposes. The above mentioned
speeial levy shall be collected for the
first time upon the assessment for the
year 1895, and no certificates or war
rants issued previous to Jan. 1, 189.,
shall be paid from the fund raised by
the state levy. After Jan. 1, 1894, the
bounty on coyotes, wolves and moun
tain lions killed shall be paid from the
said 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 be
paid from the tax of each succeeding
year, as soon as the tax has been col
A few suggestions have been made by
stockmen who have read the bill which
will be given to assist those in con
sidering the matter who feel so dis
First-Leave the present bounty law
standing as it is, but have an appropri
ation made to pay warrants issued un
der It. Then have enacted the above
law, or one similar to It, to be In effect
anl o.prtliv\'e at the same time.
Secuold.'"he bill suggested is ambig
uous. as it does not provide an author
ity to mantk the levy. The power should
be. reposed In either the board of county
c(-ormisiIoners of each county, or in the
Thlrd-Therie should not be such a
difference .etwelen the bounties of coy.
otes and wolves. The wild cat could
well I' cut out and the money go on
to the" bounty of coyotes.
Now is the time for the stockmen and

Land Agent Hitkman Talks of the Agieaul

"For oeveral months," said State Land
Agent It. O. Hickman to an Independent
reporter. "criticisms have been made by
parties who reside at Loseman and in that
vklnlty, and who should be better in
ftrmed, that the state beard of land
commmisalonere had located the agricul

where the college of Agriculture and Me

to the account of the grants for public
butildings and the state normal school,
and had gone of" a cotnslderable distance
to select lands to fill the agricultural col
loeg grlant, greatly to the detriment of

andI all others not knowing the facts.,
will state that In September and October,
1i12. or several months prior to the loca

Giranville Stuart, then acting as state land
agent, visited Beaverhead. G4lUMla and
Madlson counties and selected about
everything he cosldered desirable. He re
ported the same to Gov. Toole, then pres
Ident of the board of land commislonerse,
and the land so selected was by the board
apportioned to the several different
"if It happened that the Agricultural
college did not receive its full share of the
agricultural lands of Gallatin county,
neither the preent nor the former board
of land commissioners, nor anyone con
nected therewith are to blame, for, as
you know, the college was not loeated an

question had been selected. Had the lands

Thos. Cruse, quite recently, got returns
from thirty-Ave head of cattle sold in
Omaha. As he had made no shipment of
beef cattle this season he was at a loss
to understand the matter. The only plaus
able solution was that some one had sto
len some of his cattle, but had become
frightened and failed to collect for them
after selling them; and that the money
had beeen sent to the owner of the stock's
The alleged unlawful sale of opiates by
city druggists was a matter discussed
by the city council Saturday night. One
alderman said It was a well known fact
that morphine fiends could get their
"dope" easily without physicians prescrip

pay for it. He alluded to the state statutes
which makes it unlawful to sell morphine
or similar drugs without a physician's
order, and said that the lew relating to
this evil ought to be enforced.
