It is to be hoped that some prac
tical ranchman can form a partner
ship with a practical butcher,, to
thoroughly test the matter of
slaughtering beef on the range for
tho wholesale trade. Should the
attempt ' prove unsuccessful, there
seems no other wav than that range-.
men should pool together to raise
prices, or to adopt the Mcdora plan
of killing on the range and relail-

A movement is on foot by the
range cattlemen to establish a large
cattle yard at St. Louis. The ob-
ject. it is said, is topyercoms tne
alleged monopoly resulting from
combinations between the stock
yaS&s and dressed "beef men of Chi
cago, which is stated to include the
stock yard in East St. Louis, Chi
cago, Kansas City and Denver. The
proposed yards at St. Louis will be
controlled by the rangemen with
nlnsn relations, however, between
them and the commission men
Edward Koch of E. S. Dreyer &
Co., D. W. Clapp, A. H. Pickering,
and J. W. Porter, of Chicago, have

rood Hnmranv at lMn an acre
The tract lies chiefly between the
western line ot lNew Mexico aim
Flagstaff, Arizona. The buyers
propose to establish a large cattle
and horse raising ranch, and will
is one of the heaviest transactions
of the kind which has taken place
for some time. The lands arc ad
mirably adanted for grazing pur
poses, and the climate is such that
there will be no losses trom severe
cold. Stock Grower.
The big steer on exhibition at
the Dallas State Fair is six years
old and weighs 3,080 pounds. He
is six feet one and a half inches in
height and measures thirteen and a
half feet around the body. He is
three feet ten inches through the
shoulders, and measures twenty-six
inches between the forelegs. His
foreleg above the knee measures
thirty-one inches round. Ho is three
feet three inches over the hip and
ife otherwise gotten up regardless.
He is a regular beef monopoly. He

man who stood by him with a stick
to keep him from lying down, said

Concerning the cow-boy tourna
ninnt. at Albuoueroue, an eastern
exchange has this to say : The rid
ing was equal to the lassoing. There
seems to be no possible position
however difficult or unnatural, and
no combination of circumstances,
however unfortuitous, in which a
cowboy cannot maintain his equili
brium libn .and his absolute and
complete control of a bronco horse,
anj animal naturally so wild and
vicious that very few of the most
venturesome and accomplished
r i d ers, u t si d e o f Mex i c a ns , In d ia n s
and cowboys, "would dare even to
mount him.. The man who will
show the people of the eastern
cities such a cowboy tournament as
I witnessed tonlay at Albuquerque,
can become the wealthiest showman
of Gin time, for it is an entertain
ment so thrilling and exciting that
"Buffalo Bill's Wild West" .and the
most daring feats of the circus ring
sink into utler insignificance in
comparison with it.
, A desperate and sanguinary af
fray occurred "about fifteen miles
from . Hackberry, Arizona, on the
23d ult., resulting in the death of
one of the participants, and the
awful culmination of what was
once the acms of friendship and
confidence. Messrs. Cohn & Spen
cer, the well-known stockmen have
not, it is said, been on the best of
terms for some, time past. The two
gentlemen started for Hackberry
morning with a team, it is sup
posed, to dissolve the partnership
existing between them. The jour
ney to Hackberry was attended with
numerous disputes and harsh lan
guage from both sides. When some
fifteen miles from the station, it is
alleged, both men became involved
in a violent fist encounter, when
Charles Spencer drew a knife and
was promptly knocked on the head
with-a beer bottle, in the hands of
Cohn. Spencer now frenzied with
rage, rushed at Cohn again with his
knife, when Cohn drew his knife,(a
small sized pocket knife) and
slashed" way at Spencer's throat,
severing the jugular vein and caus
ing immediate death. Cohn came
into Hackberry this morning with
the dead body of his late partner,
and gave himself up to Deputy

.has been notified and will take
charge of Cohn pending investiga
tion. No one witnessed the killing
but Spencer's four year old boy.
Spencer for a long time had been
acting head duet lortne nuaiapai
Indians and was almost worship
ped by them as "The Big Hico."
The Globe-Democrat publishes
the subjoined account of an inter-
view with Col. George S. Robinson,

"No. Reports have gone out, j
believe, that there are bands' o
such men, but it is not true. Tin
whole Territory is as safe for travel
as Missouri or any other State.
The consequence of the immediate
outlook for the Territory is very
bright. Business has already im
proved, and it ill continue, to do
so. Ve also expect immigration"
to increase soon, though it is yet
too soon to feel tnis effect."
;The El Paso Times says that af
ter Porfiorio Diaz had made him
self President of the Republic1 by
his successful expulsion of Lcrdo
de Tejada, he proceeded to lay any
lingering ghost of Lerdoist senti
ment, that might shake its gory
locks at him in future, by marry
ing in the midst of the enemy's
camp. His young and beautiful
third wife is the daughter of Ro
mero Rubio, who was Lerdo's chief
supporter and companion in exile.
Immediately after this alliance
Senor Rubio was appointed Presi
dent of the Senate, that official be
ing empowered -by law to call and
control a new election in case of a
vacancy in the presidential chair
a not unwise move, considering the
danger of assassination to which
Mexican rulers are subject, and the
fact -that Gonzalez's murder was
more than once attempted. Ever
since Senor Rubio became papa-in-law
to the President he has held
the most eligible position in the
gift of the Executive, and it is de
finite!'' stated by those who claim
to know, that plants are already
laid by which he will be President
during Diaz's off term. If the wily
Warwick can manage this he may
be able to keep the office in the
family for an unlimited period by
a series of judicious alterations.
Mrs. Diaz, Who is not yet twenty
six years old,, is an .extremely well
bred and accomplished lady- There
are not a few points of similarity
between Mrs. Cleveland and her
self, and. if the ypung'wmTs'o'f the

would certainly become fast friends.
PL'S. Diaz is a devout Catholic, and
that goes far towards 'placing an
other . strong -element in Mexico,
who hope much from her influence
on the anti-church, ad ministration.
But President Diaz's position is
by.no means a sinecure, nor is lite
for him a bed of roses. Although
he is personally .friendly to the
United States; the quid mines say
that he would welcome war. with us

J heroes. General Diaz fully realizes
that if his people necouie aiouacu
f. of wanting war with
the United States, war must be ; for
an o hesitation on his part would
be political ruin, if not the signal
for his assassination. He well
knows that in the event of such a
conflict there could be but one is
sue defeat tor the weaker power
and then in all human probability
the blame of the whole transaction
would be heaped upon his devoteo
head. But a "boom" he must have

! men, and many suggostions 4;
made with reference to the best
thing to be. done, which are all
worthy of some co.nsideratioji, and
many of them would aid "material
ly in producing competition in the
purchase of range cattle, yhch is
the great want in the business The
Chicago syndicate,asyou are 'aware,
have managed to control both, the
"purchase : and sale o! the beef pro
duct j that, both branches of. the
business are at their mercy. The
cattle. producer is getting $10 to $15
a heat!' less "thaiY tliey arc worth,
and the consumer is paying about
the samcprice for Jbeef ' a's when the
producer received the $10;to $15
more for his product. In. my judg
ment, there is but One present rem
edy for this condition,, and that is
for all producers of beef to' sell
their cattle at home, where' "they
may be heard in determining a price
for their cattle. Shipments by "pro
ducers must be entirely stopped
and compeMhe buyers to go to the
producers to buy. This would bo
a radical' change, and perhaps' sbmo
parties might think it could' not be
carried out ; but it surely can, for
the reason that the Chicago slaugh
ters have broken down the compe
tiiibn,otlocaUutchers all over the
country and especially in the East,
and are compelled to have a" large
product every day to supply them,
and they vouJdjiot dare to-attempt
to break up a combination among
producers not to ship, as it would
otonce develop into life all the lo
cal butchers all over the country,
which they "are now "supplyingand
would in tbat way lose their custo
mers, and at once advance the price
of beet cattle largely, boih of which
the slaughterers, -want to prevent.
So they could not afford to attempt
to break down the producers' com
bination. In fact, the slaughter
ers would be thorou
power of the product
shippers are now in their power, as
.they-would be .compelled to have a
large number of cattle every day iji
border to run ineir lmmeusu u&mu
lishments. Tlie result ot siopping
shipments would at onco force,thc
slaughterers to send their pnrchas-
ng agents to all shipping points to
make purchases, which would soon
tnfcn Riieh shane as to enable all
parties to be reached who had cat-
tie for sale by these purchasing V
agents. Any altemjit to pool or
control shipments would fail to
have the" desired effect, even il they
could be controlled,' as the syndi
cate would still exist, and, knowing
that the cattle could not be held,
and must be sold immediately when
in tho Chicago yard, would still
dictate the price. The fact that the
Chicago syndicate, as now arranged
must have the cattle in supply of
6,000 to S,000 head a day is the im
portant fact for the producers to
compel the slaughterers to come to
them to purchase. They cannot
avoid it. Another important con
sideration is to avoid the out
rageous charges for care, yardage
and feed which is now practiced
under the present methods amount
ing to abont $l a head, which is a
very important item. An agree
ment entered into by the cattle pro
ducers to stop shipments would re
sult in an advance of $5 to $10 a
head within ten days, and could be
held as long as the supply is not
greater than the demand, which all
ctnt.isfins seem to show is not tho
case at present, supply and demand
having 'no bearing in determining
prices. The fact that the entire
supply is taken daily is the best
evidence, that no over supply ex
ists. But the fact that the price is
being constantly hammered down
is the best evidence that the pro
ducer has no sort of chance on
shipments sent to a -market where
a close syndicate exists?. Unless-tho
thing is arrested -and the methods
changed, the range producer will
see his $10 to $11 cattle soldfaC'
