A Revolution in the Legal Fraternity Im

The Texas Round-Up.
Poihik City, Kan., April :!. The sec
ond annual convention of the Western
Kansas Stock-growers' Association met
in this city to-day, and will remain in
session three days. This association is
funned of the stockmen of Southwestern
Kansas, Northern Texas, Colorado and
New Mexico, and the membership here
tofore has been about seventy-live, each
member owning from 100 to L'O.ooO head,
the whole number of cattle aggregating
pome 300,000, valued at 8,000,000. Exten
sive preparations have been made for this
meeting, as It will be one of the most
important meetings ever held by
the stockmen of this State, and
the citizens of Dodge have left
nothing undone that would go to make
the meeting a success. The meeting was
called to order in the Opera House, which
had been handsomely decorated with
evergreens, pictures, etc. Amongthe pic
tures was one of Mr. C. M. Beeson. one

THE I'RKSWKXT'S ADDRESS.
The 1'resident, Mr. A. 11. McCoy,
opened the Convention at p. in., and
spoke as follows:
i ientlemeu of the Convention: I am
wholly unprepared to make you
a speech on this occasion, Out
will endeavor to assure you of the
pleasure it gives me to call this iiactiiiii
and welcome the visitors who have hon
ored us with their presence. It affords
me great pleasure to call your attention
to the prosperous condition of our asso
ciation. A cood beef market and in
creased values of stock are evidence
of the good results of orsuid.ation.
We have come together again to remedy
such defects in the workings of the asso
ciation as experience has pointed out
to u. Less than a year ago we came
together that we might indelibly brand
and stamp out the meu who are prey
ing upon the property of honorable own
ers, and may we continue until burning
brands and' maveriekiug shall be a
tiling of the past, ami we prove
that the cattle busiuess can be carried
on as legitimately and safely as any
other. We want the next Legislature to
puss laws to punish the originators of
tires and put an end to the (login 2 of cat
tie in the range. There is no need of cit
ing instances of loss caused by thes- two
evils. You know their exU-nt and the
need of legislation on the subject. I de
sire to say in beha.f of the Executive
Coiiirnittee'that they havedone their duty
fn the consideration of ail matters claim
ing their attention and action. There
will have to be a revolution in the legal
fraternity before a proper enforcement of
the law and conviction of cattle-thieves
can be secured. On behalf of the asso
ciation I desire to welcome our visitors
and express the pleasure felt at their
presence with us to-day. We will now
proceed with the regular order of busi
Mr. McCoy spoke In an easy, graceful
manner ami his remarks were greeted
with warm applause.

laid over for future action by the Arbitra
tion Committee. A Committee on nomi
nations was then appointed, and after a
few remarks on important affairs
the Convention adjourned until 10:150
a. m. The meeting to-day will
be of great Importance, us the
tariff question and guarantee law and
others of like nature will come up, and
as there are several good debators, these
questions will be ably hindie l. All of
the leading papers in the West are repre

Spirit of the New York Press.
I IIH SL .
New YoHk, April 15. To-day's Ani
says: "A year ago it seemed tolerably
certain that the Democrats would elect
the next 1'resident of the United States.
The prospect was good; so good that it
(lid not appear to need any improvement,
and yet people had never then heard of
the Morrison bill. Even in politics it is
frequently wNc to let well enough alone."
The Thic says: "There are not a
great many Kepublieans in thi state who
desire the nomination of President Ar
thur, but they makean imposing showing
for tkeir numbers. They are nearly all of
them working politicians. They are ex
perienced, watchful, active, and of late
bold. Tbe opponents of his nomination
are the greatest body of the Kepubiiean
voters throughout the State. They are
earnest, but not active. They believe
that with 1'resident Arthur as its candi
date, the Kepubiiean party would lose
New York and loe the w hole light, but
they behave as though the w hole business
were a bore and a matter of indifference
The Trilim siys : "Then' is a striking
contrast between the feeling in the ranks
of the two great parties in Pennsylvania.
The Iieinocrnts an' sullen ami apparently
without hope. Their State Convention
meets iu Alleiitowu on next Wednesday.
It now seems probable that Mr. Kandall
will be 'indorsed' for the Presidency, and
that a tariff plank similar to that adopted
by the Democrats of Ohio will be un
proved. While such a plank will mean
nothing further than an expression of
Democratic cowardice on the tariff ques
tion, the 'indorsement' of Kuulnll will
prove that the Democrats of Pennsylvania
are not iu sympathy with the party as
represented in Congress."
THE IlEltW.D IE
The Ili-nilil says: "If a clique of politi
cians surrounding a leader feel sure that
they will hold the Democracy in the hol
low of their hands if he Is ma le President,
and know Hint they will be of small ac
count if his chances perish, have they not
yet the hope of providing a political heir
to those chances and counting upon tho
gratitude of the heir? If, for instance,
they could get a Democratic Convention
to 'nominate Mr. Tihleu ami wait for his
answer,' ami if that answer should give,

TildiM would like to see nominated, there
would be large openings for gratitude if
