SDecline in Prices Has Haa the
ntot of Cutting Down the
Shipments.
The Average Per Head for Mon
tana Cattle Will Be Near
Forty Dollars.
Cattlemen and Railroad Ofmelale Talk
About the nlfsiness-Some of the
Largest Shipments.
Montana will send fewer cattle to market than
raltroad men figured on for 1891. Instead of
2p0,000 head of "rangers" 145,000 is nearer the
mark, although with favorable conditions, prin
cipally a decided improvement in the markets.
the highest estimate for this season may hbe
18&0000 head.-Pioneer Press,
The attention of Secretary Preuitt, of
the board of live stock commissioners, was
called to the above, and he said that while
he was not prepared to state positively, yet
his opinion was that the shipments would
reach 200,000 head this year. No one in the
state has better facilities than,Mr. Prenitt
for judging of the extent of the shipments.
As to the statement that the average price
received for Montana cattle is $35 a head,
Mr. Preuitt says it will run closer to $40.
While it is true some cattle will be held
owing to the fact that prices have dropped
the past three weeks, the drop has been
only in poor cattle, and good cattle bring
almost as high prices as earlier. The fol
lowing report of sales a few days ago will
show how Montana cattle are now selling:

Talking to a Pioneer Press man, Col. F.
]. Malone, of the Chicago, Milwaukee A
St. Paul, places the net proceeds from Mon
tana cattle this year at $5,000,000. But he
figurea at $35 a head. Taking the sales at
200.000 head, and making the average $40 a
head, whioh is undoubtedly nearer the
truth, We have $8,000,000 as the income of
the Montana cattlemen. So far this season
tie Northern Pacific and Great Northern
have handled 6,180 cars, averaging twenty
two to the car, which gives 129,780 head.
Secretary Prepitt is now busy with business
in connection with the sale of estrays, but
he will find out in a week or two just what
the shipments of Montana cattle have been.
Cattlemen who have been in St. Paul
recently have talked quite freely over the
situation and the prospects. Commenting
on their views an exchange says:
"It is interesting to note the more inde
pendent feeling that prevails among the
cattlemen, now that they have recovered
from their losses of 1886. Since that hard,
disastrous winter this has been the first
season in which the cattle were fat enough
to cause general satisfaction among tnese
sturdy ranchmen. Prises are now lower,
but many owners are inclined to hold cattle
a year longer.
'"Nmerous reports show that they will
hold unless the markets soon become more
tempting. This has been one factor in re
ducing the estimate to 145,000 head, and at
the beest there are not more than 160,000
head obtainable. Grass is in excellent con
dition and recent rains have curtailed the
probability, of extensite fres on the north
western ranges. Thus the risk of holding
over is marrowed down to the chance of a
long siege of extremely cold weather. The
tall of 1886 had been very unfavorable for I
grass and the cattle had but little feed on t
the range when the severe cold besieged u
them. Experienced rangemen know that
when there is good range grass cattle can ,
stand severe cold far better than the gen
eral public suppose. There were a g.eat l
many pilgrim cattle (young eastern stock) t
in Montana in 18886. The opposite is the f
fact now. These are part of the reasons
that warrant the rangemen in holding some
cattle back if they see fit."
S. L. Moore, general freight agent of the
Northern Pacifio, says of the. shipments
over his lines: "The movement of Montana
cattle is the largest ever known. It beats
last year all to pieces, and is being handled
easily. It may not be as large as some ex
pected, but it should be very satisfactory to I
the railroads and all concerned."
"Haven't you found recently that some i
outfits are likely to shut off part of their
shipments?"
"Well, yes; some are. They say they are I
not satisfied with the prices and can just as
well hold. It won't make any difference to I
nus, for we are crowded now with all kinds
of freight. Those cattle will come next
year if not now."
W. J. C. Kenyon, general passenger and
freight agent of the Burlington & Northern I
railway, says: At the beginning of this ?
season it was believed the Montana cattle
shipments would reach nearly 10,000 car
loads, but mainly on account of lower
prices since then a considerable portion of
the cattle have been cuntoff. the owners pre
ferring to hold part of their young beeves
until next year.
Gen. Mark D. Flower, president of the
St. Paul Union stock yards. recently in
Montana, said: "It looks as if a good many
thousand head of beef cattle will be thrown
back on the range by part of those who in
tended to ship during this month. They
will probably send a fair share, but th'ey
seem willing to take some chances on bet
ter market conditions next year. We have
handled 2,551 cars, containing 51,240 head
of Montana cattle. IThis more than ever
before."
W. IH. Dunne seems to understand the
situation when he says: "In figuring the
income of northwestern stock growers,
don't stop at this movement of beef cattle
eastward in 1891, which will probably be
nearly 150,000 head. 'J'This is on the basis
of the number of head that rech Mlinnoap
olis and St. ]'aul. The reports of the Mon
tana run (including Dakota luonge seve)e
have been made on that basis nunually for
ten years, and likewise in this lengthy Oc
tober review. The r.tock growers ire in
good financial condition and need not
crowd young beef cattle upon the uarkelt.
Aside from the eastern sales their incomes
include deliveries on army and Indiant con
tracts in both the United States and IBritish
possessions. They have a good home de
mand. Montana's leading source of wealth,
a prodigious mining interest, is of grant
value to the moat men. Another factor is
fancy stock, which business is only in its
infancy in that section, and nt least 5,000
head of beeves are shipped this year to
Sioux City and Omaha via the ]Elkhorn
Valley. These are a part of the sources
that replete the pockets of the cattle barons.
It is said that Montana has encoessfully ex
perimented in irrigation for agriculture.
That, however, is outside of the province of
a cattle range review."
Montana now assesses on cattle, C41,056
head, c$9,675,525: sheep; 1,515,6054 headt, $3,
836,058; hornes, 160,107 head, $1,422,212; a
total of $18,000,000, which is worth noting
ina state that was only a two-year-old
when the assessor went around. Mlontana
may sacceed better than other states in se
curing a full assessment, but it is hinted
that a few nomade failed to figure in the
lists and some of the "mavericks" didn't
count.
The noticeable reetocklng of the ranges
began again ia 180), when about 1(00,0(1
head of yioung cattle canme northward into
Montana from T'exas anid other briedine
districts. 'his year Montana and Dakota
have received fully 125,000 head of young
ucattle. 't'he transactions in great herds
and the general activity in buying and sell
ing cattle last spring aggregated the great

An Army OIfleer'es lteo Plea for More
Aid and Eeeoa~agesment for the
National Guard.
Capt. F. A. Bontelle, of the Flett attlery,
has furnished' Adjutant General H'. S.
Howell with his report on the inspection of
the Montana National guard. As the con
dition of the companies were very different
Capt. Boutello was obliged to report on
them separately, and did so in the order in
which they were inspected. The report
says of Company A., First infantry, sta
tioned at Great Falls, that it is commanded
by the second lieutenant. The captain and
the first lieutenant had both tendered their
resignations several months ago, and had
ceased to take any active interest in com
pany affairs. "This company," Capt. Bon
telle says, "has been considered one of the
best in the state,.bnLfor reasons explained,
and there being for some months practically
no head, it seems to have fallen below some
others. It has no armory, and stores its
property in two small rooms in the city
court house. It has no other place for
drill than the public streets, and has had
about forty drills during the past year,
with an average attendance of sixteen."
Speating of Company C, First infantry,
Helena, the report says: "As far as could
be jndged from the men present, this is a
fines organization. The arms of the com
pany were in perfect order and the drill as
far as it went very good indeed. It has ad
vantages over every other company in the
regiment in baving a permanent armory
with facilities for keeping its arms and ac
coutrements in order."
Company B, First infantry, stationed at
Butte, the report says, "is composed prin
oipally of miners, many of whom were too
far, away from town to be notified of the
inspection. For physical strength I have
never seen the equal of the men of this
company. It, like all other organizations
outside of Helena, is dependent for an ar
mory upon some ball which can be rented
and is at the mercy of the owner from year
to year in moving it out or raising the-rent
until it is obliged to move. The captain
has no place of security for its public prop
erty." Speaking of Company G. First in
fantry, of Butte, the caetain says: "This
organization is composed largely of sales
men, clerks, etc, and is very fine." Com
pany F, First infantry, is also stationed at
Butte. "This company," the report says,
"is composed of miners, smelters and me
chanics. It is a very fine body of tuen.
From the strong number 'who responded to
the call for inspection and other indica
tions, I believe it to be in admirable disci
pline."
Of Company E, First infantry, of Dillon,
the report has little to say, as nearly all the
officers and men were out of town when the
captain called to inspect them. "Dillon is
a small town," the captain writes, "and the
members of the company are widely scat
tered, many being farmers living several
miles in the country. It has had a 1much
greater numerical strength until quit, re
cently. The members of the coiyany
present at inspection were of the best men
of the town, merchants, bank clerks, edit
ore, etc."
Company D, First infantry, is stationed
at Virginia City. The report says of it:
"Virginia City is a small town. Many of
the enlisted men of this company are farm
ers who live several miles in the country,
and are out of reach of any notification
for inspection. The men present wgre a
good body."
In conclusion, speaking generally, Capt.
Boutelle says: "Montana is the greatest
mining state in precious metals in America,
and has a strong element which in other
states has at times become turbulent
and required military force to con
trol it. While the rich mines
now being worked are able to pay the com
mon laborer three dollars a day there may
be no danger of trouble, but the time will
probably come when the rich ores will not
be so plentiful and the lower grades worked.
When this occurs wages will be reduced
and the country will have the experience
of other mining regions and have its strikes,
mobs, etc. I have seen as good material in
my inspection as any in existence, and the
state certainly ought to give the organiza
tions greater recognition and assistance.
"If it can be done constitutionally it
would seem proper that a law be enacted
requiring all cities of a considerable popu
lation to provide suitable armories for its
troops. Some of the companies are to-day
fine organizations-and able to labor suc
cessfully against the disadvantages referred
to. Some have gone down. Possibly if
they had had their armories, where ahey
could have assembled pleasantly and kept
their arms and equipments properly, it
would have been otherwise. I greatly ad
mire, while, as a professional and paid sol
dier, I cannot understand the enthusiasm
which sustains the captains of companies
who, without salary, care for the stores
thrown upon their hands, or seend the
hours usually devoted to rest in trying to
educate soldiers.
'"I f there was any provision under law or
appropriation from which the actual living
expenses of an officer could be paid I should
recommend that i4 young, active regular
army oflicer be detailed each year for one
week's duty with each company in the
state, but an expense of from $3.50 to $4
ner day at hotels is a little too great to in
fliet on anoflicer of small salary.
"In closing this rseport.I take great pleas
are in statinmg that in all of my work (ex
cepting Missoula) I met with every possible
courtesy from the offcers of the guard.
While some of the company commanders
seemed a little nervous before the inspeo
tion I think all were pleased that it had
been ordered and had a hope that some
good might come of my report upon their
necessities."
