Vcislutive action for federal regulation j
of the lands. I
The meeting a.t Salt, Lake a week j
from next Monday has been brought i
about largely through the efforts of the
Arizona Cattle drawers' association, i
which has taken the lead in the matter. !
The states affected will be Arizona,
California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana,
Nebraska, New Mexico. Nevada, I'tah,
Wyoming. Minnesota, Washington and
Oregon, the western states in which
millions of acres of land are in public ,
domain, owned by the government but j

National Livestock association and the
National Wood (J rowers' association.
Many Different Rules
The question of the public domain
lands relative to cattle and sheep grow
ing h .s always been uncertain. On the
federal forest and Indian reservations
livestock growers are given grazing
privileges and charged a dollar a head
, per year. On state lands the livestock
men may lease grazing land at about
three cenls an acre per year. But graz
ing on the public domain has never
Arizona cattle and sheep men have
always been vitally interested in the
public domain question. More than
one-fourth, of the state's acreage, or
21.000,000 acres, is in this federal
owned unregulated public domain.
Open to all, it has always been an un
solved question. It has been used gen
erally for grazing purposes, with the
ever present danger that it may be se
riously harmed by much overstocking.
nd no regulation to safeguard indi
Big Factor in Arizona
Arizona livestock men and the same
conditions are found in other western
states affected have recognized that
the public domain lands are a big fac
tor in their business, and consequently
have taken the lead in getting the do
main regulated. A system of regula
tion is sought by which the stock grow
ers may obtain their grazing privileges
In one way or another, and pay for
them. Having obtained the grazing
privileges the stockmen will be sure of
their investment and may fence off
md take like protective measures. ,
Under the present system, with no
regulation, the public domains are used
by everybody, and no one is willing to
risk the investment on the domain
lands with no regulation at all.
The question of federal control an5
regulation for the domain lands in the
western states will be settled, at the
Salt Lake City conference July 21.
Helegates from the livestock organiza
tions of all the public land states will
be there to lake it up. and a strong or
ganization will be formed to get action
in it at "Washington.
