NEW KIND OF WITHDRAWAL.
Government Reserves Land on Which Are Located Springs or Water Holes. Withdrawal of public lands for use rather than from use is the latest piece of practical conservation. The president, by executive order, under tne withdrawal law has withdrawn from entry many tracts of unappro priated public lands which contain springs or small streams. These wa tering places control the public range over large areas in Utah and Wyom ing and the withdrawal of these lands will In no wise interfere with the use of the springs or streams but will in fact insure the possibility of public use. Control of watering places by strong private interests and the re sultant monopolization of grazing on the public domain are believed to be prejudicial to public interest, and the president regards the setting aside of thse watering places for public use as serving a distinct and beneficial pub lic purpose, in harmony not only with the letter but with the spirit of the act of 1910. The tnree withdrawals already ap proved by the president represent an aggregate area of about 80,000 acres in six counties in Utah and Wyoming, and Include tracts of public land known from the records of the United States Geological Survey and the Gen STALLION FOR SALE Say, Brother Horsemen: Do you want to buy a seal brown Per cheron stallion, weight 1900 pounds, four years old next June.

It is well known that in the Rocky Mountain and Pacific coast states there are many large areas of ex cellent grazing land in which the num ber of places where water for man or beast can be obtained is relatively small. Sometimes the shortest dis tance between "water holes" is 10, 20 or even 50 miles. Some of these wa tering places are springs, some of them ponds of alkaline water, some of them small streams flowing down from adjacent hills or mountains and becoming lost on the edge of the desert. The lands in large part sup port a growth of grass and small brush which is excellent fodder for horses, cattle, or sheep, and as prac tically all these areas are government land they are tree range" for who ever may care to graze his stock thereon. However, stock can not live without water, and unless watering places are available to a stock own er it is impossible for him to utilize the range. As a result of these conditions it has come to be common practice in some parts of the west for a big cat tie or sheep outfit to obtain posses sion of the few scattered water holes in a certain area and by this means to monopolize the grazing privilege al most as effectively as If it actually owned every acre of the area. In con sequence the small stock owner has been placed at a serious disadvan tage and in many localities has been forced out of business. This practical development of the conservation policy in order to pre vent monopolization of the public grazing lands will not only insure equal opportunity, under present con ditions, but it prepares the way for future legislation. Should congress at I any future time decide to pass a graz ing law the retention of these watering places in public ownership will make the enactment of a satisfactory law possible; whereas if the water should pass into private hands the framing of a law providing for the control of grazing on the public domain would be useless, because the law itself would be inoperative. The present action will really be beneficial to both large and small stock growers, although it will doubt less not be pleasing to those who de sire to exclude'rivals from the range: by acquiring the watering places themselves. The competition and struggle for existence have in many places, however, grown so keen that even to the largest outfits the strife has become burdensome, and to some of them, at least, the removal of one of the causes of contention by the reservation of the springs and streams for the common use of all will be a de- 1 cided relief. To the small stockman who has been lighting for existence and who has seen his grazing area diminish year by year as he has been barred from this spring or from that stream, it will be welcome news that the government has taken steps that will at least make the competition fairer.
