General 1m rovement throughout the west in livestock and range conditions dur ins the month of October Is in dleated in the monthly reports is sued tonight by division headquar ters here of the federal bureau of crop and livestock estimates. Rain and enow coming on the heels of a comparatively extended period of lack of precipitation ira proved the open ranges in six west ern states sufficiently to onset tne slight deterioration elsewhere in the west, declared the report, which is compiled from reports of Hold statisticians. Tne aversee condition in the 17 range states on November 1, the reports states, was 81 per cent of normal, compared with 80 per cent on October 1, this year. These averages refer chiefly to the open range. The greatest improvement was in Texas, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Washington and Califor nia. according to the report. Snow, which has fallen in many western states since isovemoer i the first month to bring real win' ter to the west, is expected to fur ther improve range and farm pas ture conditions, the report states The condition of range cattle de clined somewhat during October, the average on November 1 being 82 per cent of normal, compared with 89 per cent one montn pre vious. Heavy marketing of cattle has been general in the Inst few months, throughout the western states, due rartly, the report says, to scarcity of feed and partly to the stock men being forcud to sell to meet ther obligations. Sheep Aro Quite Prom Is inc. "Sheep are quite promising for the future,,1' the report-continues, "aad there is stijl a widespread .demand fo? Boeder lambsvalUjough most of the feeder producing states have already sold their surplus.

But ho added this, said to be different from anything ever put in 'an ex pense report heretofore: "Owing to the fact that the sen ators from my state have absorbed all the federal patronage, and ow ing to the further lamentable fact that the durn fool alleged civil service order of the president has prevented me from naming postr masters while it makes me respon sible for these appointments, I have thought it the better part of discretion to promise nobody anything, and hence I am as vir tuous as a new born babe as far as promises are concerned. I have made none." AUTO SPEED FIENDS WILL JISIT MORGUE Detroit,' Mich., Nov; 16.

London, Nov. 1C (by the Asso ciated Press). The Ions drawn out fight between former Premier Lloyd George and Sir George Younger has for the time ended Willi victory for the chairman of the unionist party. Younger an3 his adherents staked their political fortunes at the famous Carlton club meeting which smashed the coalition and sent Lloyd Georgj into tho wilderness on the convic tion that the country was ripe for a return to strong party politics; and in the firm belief that the na-l tion would support their convic tions by sending the conservatives to the house of commons with a good working majority. Confidence Justified. Their confidence has been amply Justified. Yesterday's elections have returned a parliament with almost the same overwhelming predominance of conservatives as the last parliament elected in 1918 on a wave of grateful enthusiasm to Lloyd George as "winner of the war." In the new parliament Premier Bonar Law will command a major ity over all parties combined of approximately eighty. While, this cannot be described properly as a landslide, as the con servatives at tho same time of the dissolution of parliament numb -ed about 3S0 it amounts almost to the same thing, considering the peculiar circumstances of tho time, and the high hopes held bv the labor and liberul narties of the re turn of the country to progressive views, and It may lie supposed that the conservatives themselves hard ly expected such favorable results.
